Bannon the street fighter

“I don’t need the affirmation of the mainstream media. I don’t care what they say. They can call me an anti-Semite. They can call me racist. They call me nativist. You can call me anything you want. Okay? As long as we’re driving this agenda for the working men and women of this country, I’m happy.”

There’s more good quotes, here.

If Charlottesville were reversed…

Another in our continuing series of quoting good commenters, this time at the Power Line Blog:

“If you reverse the political parties and the ideologies of all the players involved in the Charlottesville incident,” comments Steve Katz, “the mayor, the governor, the protesters, the counter protesters, the assailant, the victim, and the POTUS. the media would put 100 percent of the blame on the “Right Wing mayor” and the “Right Wing governor,” for ordering the cops not to intervene, and purposely allowing a riot to ensue.

“And the only comment they would seek from the Democrat POTUS, was an affirmation that the Right Wing mayor and the Right Wing governor were to blame for the whole thing.

“It’s unfortunate that so many seemingly intelligent people can’t figure out how this game is played. Did they learn absolutely nothing from comparing the media coverage of the shooting of Gabby Giffords to the media coverage of the shooting of Steve Scalise? Apparently not.”

Editing the Wall Street Journal

Editor-in-chief Gerard Baker excised several conclusions from the WSJ’s coverage of the president’s Phoenix rally. Admonishing reporters:

“Could we please just stick to reporting what he said rather than packaging it in exegesis and selective criticism?”

That’s what was leaked to the NYSlimes, anyhow, as the WSJ reporting staff fought back against removal of their editorializing. Concluded the Slimes:

“The Wall Street Journal is owned by the media magnate Rupert Murdoch, who speaks regularly with Mr. Trump and recently dined with the president at the White House.”

Oh, horrors. Well, I guess we know what Gerard’s work is worth, eh?

Alt-left attacks the Phoenix police

Bottles of urine again. From Antifa. They of, as the president said, at last: helmets, black masks and clubs.

This time they were met with pepper spray and tear gas. Way to go, cops.

UPDATE:  And rubber bullets and concussion grenades.

When Duty Calls

“When the left loses it always gets violent, it always creates diversions, it always uses its hold on the media, and it always proceeds according to the dictates of their crazy cult.

“I don’t think we can turn them back at this point. Cultists have [too much] trouble breaking out of their vivid dream to think clearly. Absent a sudden onset of sanity I don’t see it happening.

“It is the duty of every sane person to both counter their narrative and to try to fight off the inevitable overreaction.”

Such as the loony tunes idea that 14 percent (blacks) of 300 million are going to start a race war.

Without Bannon Trump More Isolated

“Bannon had delivered for the [conservative] movement, reportedly convincing President Trump to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accords, and to visit Israel on his first trip abroad. Bannon was also probably the only person who could deliver honest advice and criticism to the president, because he did not need the job.

“He is a self-made man, and not a Washington climber. Thus it was that Bannon reportedly told Trump that firing former FBI director James Comey would be more trouble than it was worth. He was right.”

Now Trump has only Jared and Ivanka, two Democrats, to closely advise him. Will he turn into a go-along to get-along RINO? Wait and see.

The Thugs of Antifa

The Mediacrats called them “counter-protestors.”

UPDATE:  Peter Beinart of the Atlantic: “The movement’s secrecy makes definitively cataloging its activities difficult, but this much is certain: Antifa’s power is growing. And how the rest of the activist left responds will help define its moral character in the Trump age.”
