Critical Thinking: New York Attack, Sharia Supremacism vs. Western Civilization

New York Attack, Sharia Supremacism vs. Western Civilization

Great American Guilt Trip (Political Correctness) Allows Sharia Law Supremacists to Destroy Our Civilization from Within

Rush Limaugh

That’s the threat. Islam in and of itself is not, but the idea of supremacy, Sharia law supremacy, that is and should be — it’s not — it should be the target of our vetting. That does pose a problem. And as they continue to migrate to America and expand their numbers, the problem gets exponentially larger at the same time. The belief in the supremacy of Sharia law is where this is all centered. That’s where all the vetting should be aimed.

I saw something yesterday on the Drudge Report, and I didn’t click the link, so I don’t know the details. But it’s either now or very soon the Muslim population in America will outnumber the Jewish population in America. It either has happened or it’s on the way to happening.

Now, the passage that I cite here in McCarthy’s book, The Grand Jihad, was written about ten years ago. And it has become only clearer in those 10 years that the jihadists are only the tip of the spear. We’re dealing with an ideological enemy whose aim — and they’re quite up front of this. They do not deny this. It is us — it is we — who refuse to hear it. Their objective is to supplant Western culture. “Come on, Rush! We had a guy who went nuts and he drove a car through eight people. This is not mass terrorism.”

That’s not the point. The point is: Where does the guy get his beliefs? Where does the guy get his ideas? Why’s he mad? Why does he want to do this to one person, eight people, 20? Why? That’s what we’re up against, and they can happen at any time because the people are here, and we’re not vetting for these kinds of people. We are purposely avoiding trying to find out whether or not the people we’re allowing into the country have any kind of supremacist notion of Islam or Sharia law.

That is his ideological enclave. But we’re debating visa and refugee policy, and instead we need to be vetting for Sharia supremacy. I know this is a minority view for a lot of people. It goes too far. It gets into an area where people are uncomfortable about it. But that is the problem. That is what we’re up against. Put simply, we are allowing people into the country who want to tear it down. We’re allowing people into the country who want to overthrow it.

We are allowing people into the country who want to supplant our way of life with theirs. We’re letting them in. Can I read to you how this was described in the Washington Examiner? “Multiple People Killed When Truck Drives Down New York City Bike Path.” Really? Is that what happened? Reminds me of the old days where the SUV was blamed for killing people or driving off the top of a parking garage. The SUV had its own personality. It could drive itself around — and whatever damage that happened, the SUV did it.

Trump fires back after Manafort indictment

 

Manafort joined the Trump campaign in March 2016 and developed a strategy that convinced delegates not to break with Trump in favor of establishment candidates. Trump then appointed the veteran Republican strategist as chairman and chief strategist of his campaign.

Months later, Trump fired Manafort after learning his chairman received more than $12 million in undisclosed payments from former Ukrainian president Victor F. Yanukovych, who he spent years working for as a political consultant.

Mueller was appointed by the Justice Department in May to lead the investigation into Trump campaign officials’ relationships with Russian operatives. But the focus now actually may be turning to the Democrats.

President Trump contends the “real Russia story” is the sale of 20 percent of U.S. uranium assets to a Russian company under Clinton’s watch.

Critics also have pointed to Mueller’s relationship with fired FBI chief James Comey and the fact that he stacked his team of investigators with lawyers who had openly supported Hillary Clinton in the election. The Mail reported it was unclear if Mueller still has a strategy to “squeeze” Manafort” for information about the 2016 election “and Russian’s possible interference with it.”

The allegations concern actions that all predate the Trump campaign, and Trump’s name doesn’t appear in the 31-page indictment by Mueller, who in the document makes no allegations of collusion with Russia.

History Heroes: Ryan Nash NYPD stops Islamic Terrorist Attack

History Heroes:

Ryan Nash of NYPD stops  Islamic Terrorist Attack

“I want to commend the response of our NYPD officer that was on post near the location who stopped the carnage moments after it began.” ~ NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill

His name is Ryan Nash. He’s a police officer with the First Precinct in New York City.

And now he’s a hero.

Nash was out in his patrol car on a routine call on Tuesday afternoon, cruising the streets as he looked for a suicidal teenager, a 17-year-old girl, after someone called in. Then he came upon a scene he could never have imagined: a terrorist had just driven down a pedestrian walkway, killing eight and wounding 11, before smashing his rented truck and setting off on foot.

When Nash, 28, saw the terrorist, Sayfullo Saipov, near Stuyvesant High School, running and carrying two weapons — which turned out to be a paintball gun and a pellet gun — he chased after him. He ordered the terrorist to drop his weapons, and when he didn’t, Nash drew his gun and fired, hitting Saipov, 29, in the abdomen.

That ended the ordeal.

The five-year veteran, who lives on Long Island, was taken to the hospital after the shooting and treated for ringing in the ears. He was later released.

City Councilman Joe Borelli called Ryan a hero.

Nash has twice been decorated, winning the NYPD awards for Excellent Police Duty and one for Meritorious Police Duty, ABC News reported.

NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill lauded Nash’s quick action in the chaotic scene.

“I want to commend the response of our NYPD officer that was on post near the location who stopped the carnage moments after it began,” he told reporters at a press conference Tuesday evening.

Truth about Las Vegas Shooting: Gun Facts; Media Fact Check

Truth about Las Vegas Shooting:

Gun Facts; Media Fact Check

Media Fact Check:

Known Facts about Las Vegas Shooter

Sara Gonzales

Since the deadly shooting in Las Vegas that left at least 59 people dead and another 527 injured, there have been several conflicting news reports about the gunman, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock. Some of these stories were even promoted by top websites like Google and Facebook.

Here’s a look at what’s true about the shooter, based on what we know so far.

Fact

Update:

Paddock prescribed drug linked to violent outbursts

Use of anti-anxiety medication can sometimes trigger aggressive behavior, psychotic experiences

Gun Facts

Rush Limbaugh

RUSH: Hey. Let me ask you a question, couple questions. Has your pencil, when you’ve been writing or your pen ever misspelled a word? No, no, I’m just asking. Has your car ever driven drunk? Well, depending on the way SUV accidents are covered, for a while there when they were trying to demonize ’em, the media did treat SUVs as though they had minds of their own.

SUVs were driving off parking garage roofs. SUVs were killing their drivers ’cause SUVs were evil to climate change. Did your fork make you fat?
Didn’t happen, did it? The pencil didn’t misspell a word. The fork didn’t make you fat. And your car never hit a fire hydrant drunk. Ask Tiger Woods. But yet guns are killing people. Well, I’m just sharing with you the kind of logic you get in the town of Realville, where I, your host, am the mayor.

Here Are 5 Reasons The Media Focus On Mass Shootings. It’s Misleading To Do So.

Ben Shapiro

Daily Wire

  1. Mass Shootings Cannot Be Confined By Location. The vast bulk of gun homicides in the United States take place in major cities that trend blue. As Harry Moroz of Next American City calculated in 2012, “Based on the CDC data, almost 60% of US firearm homicides occur in the 62 cities of the country’s 50 largest metros.” Gun control is quite common in those areas.
  2. The Type Of Gun In Mass Shootings Differs Radically From Gun Homicides Overall. According to FBI statistics, the vast majority of gun-related homicides involve handguns, not long guns (in 2012, for example, only 322 people were killed with a rifle of any sort, as opposed to thousands by handgun). But the Left doesn’t want to openly talk about banning handguns, since they are significantly more common and more popular than long guns. The “assault weapons ban” sounds more plausible in the context of mass shootings than in the context of overall American gun homicide.
  3. The Evidence For Gun Control Is Strongest On Mass Shootings. There is little correlative evidence between gun homicide and gun ownership. The states in America with high gun ownership rates evidence no elevated level of gun homicide compared with those with lower rates of gun ownership.
  4. The Bulk Of Gun-Related Deaths In America Are Suicides. While the media focus incessantly on gun homicide, which has been dropping steadily for years (at least until the advent of the Ferguson effect), the bulk of gun-related deaths in the United States are suicides. The media routinely obscure this fact, because it might remind people that guns don’t shoot people all by themselves.
  5. Mass Shootings Are Often Perpetrated By The Mentally Ill. This means that we tend to blame society rather than individuals. When criminals commit crimes, we tend to blame them for their criminality; when the mentally ill commit horrific acts of violence, it’s easier to blame society more broadly, which tends to call for public policy change.

Focusing on mass shootings makes some sense because they are the most visible shootings; because they don’t specifically create individual moral culpability thanks to mental illness concerns; because their small sample size allows politicians to attribute any sort of decline to changes in public policy. But it’s a mistake to make policy for precisely those reasons.

 

Truth about Las Vegas Shooting: Mass Shootings, Mind Altering Drugs and Radicalization

Truth about Las Vegas Shooting:

UPDATE:

Paddock prescribed drug linked to violent outbursts

Use of anti-anxiety medication can sometimes trigger aggressive behavior, psychotic experiences

Dr. Michael First, a clinical psychiatry professor at Columbia University and expert on benzodiazepines, contended Paddock’s attack was clearly premeditated, but acknowledged diazepam “fuels aggression.”

“What this man in Las Vegas did was very planned,” he told the Review-Journal.
But the truth about mass shootings and psychiatric drugs is being swept under the rug by the media. Corporate media outlets face a major conflict of interests by exposing big pharma corruption.

Mass Shootings, Mind Altering Drugs and Radicalization

“When an Islamic terrorist blows up a school with kids in it, we are told not to judge all Muslims by the acts of a few,” said Sen. John Kennedy, R-La. “And I agree with that. So why do we want to judge all 80 million gun owners in America because of the acts of one perverted idiot? I don’t know what else to call him. I don’t think our problem in America is gun laws. I think criminals obey gun laws like politicians keep promises.”

2 lethal traits of America’s deadliest mass shooters

Alicia Powe

Instead of jumping on the anti-gun bandwagon in the wake of the Las Vegas massacre, concerned Americans might be better served by turning their attention to what the nation’s deadliest mass shooters have in common.

There’s no escaping the two lethal traits shared by almost every single one of them …

Over the last 20 years, the perpetrators of nearly all the deadliest mass shooting in the United States have shared one of two traits: Besides killing innocents with firearms, they either were Muslims or were using mind-altering psychiatric drugs.

Stephen Craig Paddock is alleged to have opened fire from a 32nd-floor hotel room on a crowd of more than 22,000 gathered for a country music festival Sunday night, killing at least 59 people and injuring at least 515 others, making it the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

Paddock’s brother, Eric Paddock, revealed Monday that their father, Patrick Benjamin Paddock, was a bank robber who escaped prison and was on the FBI’s Most Wanted list. The elder Paddock was “diagnosed as psychopathic” and “reportedly had suicidal tendencies.”

  1. James Hodgkinson, congressional baseball practice (2017):

Hodgkinson, a Bernie Sanders supporter who reportedly “hated Republicans,” opened fired at a GOP congressional baseball practice on June 14, wounding Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., two Capitol Police officers and one congressional staffer.Timothy Slater, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Washington Field Office, revealed that Hodgkinson was taking prescription drugs, but he did not disclose what the drugs were for or whether he was abusing them.

  1. Esteban Santiago-Ruiz, Fort Lauderdale airport (2017):

Santiago-Ruiz shot five people to death and injured six others in Fort Lauderdale’s Hollywood International Airport Jan. 7, 2017, near the baggage claim.

Relatives said he had been receiving psychological treatment.

The Fort Lauderdale shooter was also reportedly speaking to online jihadists and practicing shooting his pistol for months before he opened fire.

  1. Omar Mateen, Orlando, Florida, Pulse nightclub (2016): 49 killed

It is being widely reported in the media that Mateen had bipolar disorder. His ex-wife, Sitora YuSufi, says Mateen claimed he was bipolar.

  1. Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik, San Bernardino (2015): 14 killed

A newlywed couple, U.S. citizen Rizwan Farook and his Pakistani wife Tashfeen Malik, who was a permanent resident, left their 6-month-old baby with a grandmother while they stormed a holiday party at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, California, killing 14 people and injuring 22 others.

Former FBI Director James Comey concluded that Farook and Malik were radicalized and likely inspired by foreign terrorist organizations.

  1. Adam Lanza, Sandy Hook (2012): 26 killed

A 20-year-old American citizen, Lanza killed his mother in December 2012 before shooting and killing 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. He later committed suicide.

According to the website AbleChild, Paul Fox, the psychiatrist who treated Lanza was arrested for sexual misconduct and charged with three felony counts of sexual assault on a then-19-year-old patient for distributing the victim a “dynamic cocktail of psychiatric drugs” and for questionable billing practices and patient records retention.

It is unclear what psychiatric diagnoses or what kind of psychiatric “dynamic cocktail” Lanza was prescribed while a patient under Fox’s “care” because the state of Connecticut refuses to release Lanza’s mental health records or autopsy and toxicology results.

Fox told detectives who were investigating the Sandy Hook massacre in 2012 that he had little memory of Lanza and destroyed any records he had of his treatment of Lanza prior to 2012.

  1. Seung-Hui Cho Virginia Tech (2007): 32 killed

Cho, a 23-year-old student and South Korean national, went on a rampage at Virginia Tech University in April 2007, killing 27 students and five teachers before committing suicide.

The New York Times has reported the killer was on a prescription medication, and authorities said he was confined briefly several years before the attack for a mental episode.

  1. Nidal Hasan, Fort Hood military base (2009): 13 killed

After jumping up on a desk and shouting “Allahu akbar,” U.S. Army psychiatrist Nidal Hasan opened fire and sprayed more than 100 bullets inside a crowded building where troops were preparing to deploy to Afghanistan in November 2009. He killed 13 people and injuring 42 others.

Hasan reportedly was disciplined prior to the shootings for pushing his beliefs on others. His business card carried an abbreviation for “Soldier of Allah.”

  1. James Holmes, Aurora, Colorado (2012): 12 killed

Holmes, a U.S. citizen born in California and a graduate student in neuroscience, stormed a movie theater airing a late-night premiere of a “Batman” film in Aurora, Colorado, in July 2012. He was wearing body armor when he opened fire and released tear gas.

Holmes was using two mind-altering psychiatric drugs during the night of the shooting, including the antidepressant Sertaline, generically known as Zoloft.

Zoloft has an FDA “black box” warning, the strongest warning the agency issues, cautioning that the drug can increase the risk of suicidal thoughts and behavior. Other dangerous side effects of Zoloft include agitation, irritability, anxiety, hostility, aggressiveness, hallucinations, mania, impulsivity, delusions and apathy.

Holmes was also on Klonopin, a drug that was initially designed to treat epileptic seizures by lowering electoral activity in the brain. It shares the same side effects of Zoloft but also can reportedly cause unpredictable reactions in people.

  1. Jiverly Antares Wong, New York immigrant center: 13 killed

A Vietnamese immigrant, Jiverly Antares Wong, shot and killed 13 people at an upstate New York immigration center in April 2009 before killing himself.

Wong displayed had no history of mental illness, but a letter he sent to a Syracuse television station revealed he was harboring a growing paranoia. Just before his killing spree, Wong sent a two-page delusional rant to the TV station saying the police were spying on him, sneaking into his home and trying to get into car accidents with him.

  1. Aaron Alexis, Navy Yard headquarters (2013): 12 killed

Alexis, a 34-year-old information technology employee at a defense-related computer company, used a valid pass in September 2013 to get into the Navy Yard and then opened fire for more than a half hour, killing 12 people before he was slain by police in the shootout.

U.S. law enforcement found no evidence to suggest Alexis’ motive was political or religious.

Alexis never sought care from a mental health specialist. He was never declared mentally ill by a judge or committed to a hospital, according to the Veteran Affairs medical centers.

But less than a month before Alexis went on the shooting rampage, he visited U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs medical centers twice, seeking treatment for insomnia. He was given medication to help him sleep, but when asked by doctors, he denied having thoughts about harming himself or others.

In August 2013, the former member of the Navy Reserve complained to Rhode Island police that people were talking to him through the walls and ceiling of his hotel rooms and sending microwave vibrations into his body to deprive him of sleep.

  1. Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold Columbine High (1999): 12 killed

Harris and Klebold, two American teenage boys, shot and killed 12 classmates and a teacher, wounding 26 others before killing themselves at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, in April 1999.

Harris was reportedly rejected by Marine Corps recruiters days before the Columbine High School massacre because he was under a doctor’s care and had been prescribed antidepressant medications Luvox, Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft and Effexor, which he was on at the time he opened fire at Columbine High School.

Klebold’s medical records remain sealed, but at least one public report exists of a Klebold friend witnessing him take the antidepressants Paxil and Zoloft.

  1. George Hennard, Texas restaurant (1991): 22 killed

In October 1991, 35-year-old Hennard, a U.S citizen, shot dead 22 people in a restaurant in the town of Killeen before shooting himself.

Hennard had suffered from a paranoid personality disorder, and experts said he was at “the very border of mental illness.”

American Family Association Journal

September 2017 – In 1970, a visiting pianist at a church was critiqued and dismissed by a pastor because something about him just didn’t quite sit right with the church congregation. That was when vocalist and pianist Byron Spradlin – who was in the congregation that day – realized something amiss.

“This pianist was from a different culture,” Spradlin noted. “We’ve got a society moving away from God, not toward Him, and people in the arts are the most powerful people.” He recognized that Christians in the creative arts have potential to connect to the larger culture.

Yet Christians too rarely find ground for a serious approach to the arts. Before the eyes of the world, if they make a claim to faith, the worth of their artistic expression is often demeaned by the secular culture.

Spradlin saw need for artistry in the church and for God in the culture, and founded Artists in Christian Testimony in 1973, an offspring of his own musically diverse career and engagement with ministries such as Campus Crusade for Christ and Jews for Jesus. With ACT International, artists are mentored for missions in the church and around the world.

Art connects
Artists are connectors who bring the essence of their faith and ideals to people at a universal level.

Christian artist, Misty Tolle Stiffler

“We have to think of being like the Levitical priests of the Bible, responsible and called out to stand before God and minister to Him and connect others to Him,” said Misty Tolle-Stiffler (left), director of worship arts at Man O’ War Church in Lexington, Kentucky.

Formerly a musician in Broadway productions, the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, and director of school and family programs at Carnegie Hall, Tolle-Stiffler knows all about high standards of excellence carried over from her education at the Julliard School. Yet, she gave up the pinnacle of her career, and moved from New York City to Kentucky to learn what could be accomplished by getting on her knees before God.

When Mitchell Tolle, her dad and himself a well-known artist (See AFAJ 2/13), asked her to serve as worship leader at the church he pastors, it was something all her training had not prepared her for.

“My whole approach to being a worship leader and reintegrating classical music as a believer in Christ has been to keep prayer at the center of my life,” she told AFA Journal.

The power of her artistic leadership is that it is well done and encompasses the nonbeliever, even as it heightens the sensibilities of the worshipper.

“I’m thankful for my classical music training,” she said. I know it plays into the success of our music programs. When the world is going out to concerts and events, they encounter excellence. So we make sure that everything is top quality in our productions – and those are ways we connect to the community that wouldn’t normally step inside a church. But it’s tied to God and Him being the One exalted.”

Art exalts
The Christian’s art translates into a worldview that magnifies God, and mankind made in His image.

In Saving Leonardo, Christian apologist Nancy Pearcey chronicles how art forms have changed over history to express the dominating worldview of the time. In the past, art embodied meaning, order, and beauty, because it reflected the Christian worldview.

Now, more often, art is abandoned to dissonance, fragmentation, and absurdity, having been hijacked by philosophies that reject the worth and guiding purpose of a universe held together by God’s hand.

Pearcey quotes Dana Goia, former chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts, a tax-funded agency most noted for funding the bizarre and the blasphemous. Goia acknowledged, “All art is a language – a language of color, sound, movement, or words. When we immerse ourselves in a work of art, we enter into the artist’s worldview. It can be an expansive and glorious worldview, or it can be [a] cramped, dehumanizing worldview.”

Thus, it is more important than ever for Christians to be propelled to the forefront in all manners of artistic expression. In this way, quality is matched with meaning for the eyes of the world.

It is because of the Christian worldview, too, that art should be encouraged by the church, Tolle-Stiffler emphasized. Art is not just worthwhile on the human level, but as a recognition of God’s glory and His handprint on each life.

“There is a part of our soul that, in the way we’re made in the image of God, has an innate need to make beautiful things,” she told AFAJ. “We need to create because in that way we are like our Creator.”

In the worldview of Christian art, both God and man are exalted by the proper expression of their nature.

Art complements


While the role of art in church for the sake of worship and community may be quickly recognized, the involvement of church in the arts is less prioritized. The arts are not just an asset to the church; they are a responsibility.

“In the times of Bach and Michelangelo, so many incredible artists were basically on retainer by churches and religious organizations,” Tolle-Stiffler said. “Part of the reason people like Bach were writing sacred music is that they were literally employed to do so by the church. You could just say, ‘Well culture has changed from a spiritual perspective,’ but part of the big shift is that the church is not investing in the arts. If we relegate all creativity to the world, we’re not able to pour Christian values into those art forms, or into our communities.”

Because art is an integral part of worship and imago dei (image of God), as well as a mode of instruction in Christian worldview, it should belong to the church to sponsor and uphold – for its own sake, and not just as a church-building tool.

Spradlin expresses in a video interview on the ACT International website, people in music and arts have more than just utilitarian capabilities but function as strategists in leadership, development, and community.

“We need to affirm these people … so they will step into what God designed them to be for the church and for humanity in general,” Spradlin says.

Pearcey echoes those thoughts in Saving Leonardo, writing, “Where are today’s counterparts to Bach? Where is the music and art that expresses biblical truths so eloquently that it invites people to embark on a search for God? Christians must go beyond criticizing the degradation of American culture, roll up their sleeves, and get to work on positive solutions … The church must once again become a place with a reputation for nurturing artists.”

Christians in the Visual Arts is a network for artists, galleries, educational facilities, and churches with the goal of creating a relationship between the arts, the church, and the secular world. One of its goals is to encourage churches to sponsor and host an art presence.

As an example of one way that can be done, Grace Point Church in Bentonville, Arkansas, has created Story: The Gallery at Grace Point, a public art gallery. The gallery hosts art camps, changing exhibitions, and opportunities for artists. Visit gracepointchurch.net/story-the-gallery-at-grace-point.

Truth in Journalism: Truth about Charlottesville, Alt-right, and Antifa Violence

Truth in Journalism:

Truth about Charlottesville, Alt-right, and Antifa Violence

Update:

Antifa Protestors Appear at Funeral of Heather Hayer, Show up With Bats and Shield

At a press conference a day earlier Trump made reference to a “beautiful statement” Heyer’s mother, Susan Bro, had sent him. Bro had written, “Thank you, President Trump, for those words of comfort and for denouncing those who promote violence and hatred.”

Following the violence in Charlottesville, Trump condemned what he described as the “egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence” saying it has no place in America. He specifically condemned the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, but has also said that the alt-left was in part to blame for the violence.

At the memorial service, Hayer’s mother said she hoped that people can talk about their differences instead of resorting to violence.

“The truth is, we are going to have our differences. We are going to be angry with each other, but let’s channel that anger, not into hate, not into violence. Not into fear, but channel that difference, that anger, into righteous action,” she said.

7 Things You Need To Know About Antifa

ByMichael Qazvini

August 14, 2017

Over the weekend, Charlottesville erupted into chaos. White supremacists and neo-Nazis brawled with masked left-wing Antifa rioters in what could only be described as a battle between Satan and Lucifer.

While the mainstream Left has attempted to frame this weekend’s insanity as a one-sided issue, video evidence clearly demonstrates that members of Antifa, or anti-fascists, heavily contributed to the violence.

Here are seven things you need to know about Antifa:

  1. Antifa uses fascist tactics to achieve its goals. Antifa is to anti-fascism what Stalin was to freedom. Antifa is fascism personified. Despite calling themselves “anti-fascist,” members of Antifa routinely deploy fascist tactics to shut down, intimidate, harass, and bloody their political opponents.
  2. The Department of Homeland Security labeled Antifa’s actions as “domestic terrorism.” “Shortly after Trump’s election, anarchist and far-left protesters rioted in Portland, bringing at least a million dollars’ worth of damage — and resulting, in the eyes of the Department of Homeland Security, in ‘domestic terrorism,’” explains Politico.
  3. Antifa uses “black bloc” attacks to promote violence, sow chaos, and evade law enforcement. Like their counterparts in Europe, American leftist activists often promote violence and reap chaos through time-tested tactics such as black bloc assaults, which feature thousands of black-clad and masked self-professed anarchists destroying everything in sight with hockey sticks, baseball bats, metal poles, trash cans, and virtually anything they can get their hands on.
  4. Antifa’s garbled ideology is grounded in Marxism. All Antifa members seem to share an aversion to capitalism. Beyond that, Antifa’s political aim cannot be pinned down to one issue or cause.
  5. The mainstream Left is praising Antifa. Paranoid and conspiracy minded, the mainstream Left has abandoned all sense of political decorum to embrace vigilantism. And even liberals who aren’t explicitly praising Antifa are refusing to condemn their behavior.
  6. The vast majority of Antifa members are pitiable losers. As The Daily Wire’s Aaron Bandler reported, While Antifa claims to support “diversity,” the group’s rank-and-file is comprised mostly of single, unemployed young white males (far-left Antifa meet “alt-right” neo-Nazis and white supremacists). 7. Antifa conflates speech with violence, believing that “offensive” rhetoric, “hate” speech, and micro-aggressions should be counteracted with macro-aggressions, or physical violence.

Truth About Neo-Nazis or ‘Alt-Right’

Rush Limbaugh

Not enough Neo-Nazis and KKK to elect Anybody—They have No Power

And here’s the real irony. This bunch of people down in Charlottesville, this ragtag bunch of Nazis and Klan members and white supremacists? There’s not enough of those people to affect any kind of change whatsoever. Not systemic change. Not enough of those people to elect enough people to matter. There aren’t enough of those people to matter, period.

They are not the problem. They don’t have power in America today. They don’t have any, compared to the people opposing them. How many people show up at a Klan rally these days if they have one? The media doesn’t show you because it’s so tiny. The media wants you to think the Klan elected Donald Trump. The media wants you to think the Klan, the Nazis, and the white supremacists elected Donald Trump and that Steve Bannon put ’em all together and grew them. There aren’t enough of those people to elect a member of Congress, much less a president.

They are not the problem. The problem is on the other side. The problem comes from people who do have power — and what power they have! They have the power to shut down free speech on campus. They have the power to totally corrupt the movie, the book, the music and TV industries. They have real power! The anarchists, the anti-Americans, the Antifa, the Occupy Wall Street, the Black Lives Matter, the United States mainstream media, the Democrat Party, they have power.

These little hapless people marching around wearing white hoods couldn’t stop diddly-squat. They don’t have any power. They’ve been shamed into practically nonexistence. Yet they are hoisted up. They are portrayed as the people running this country — or the people who used to run this country and they ran it for all these years, and now they are losing it, justifiably, and they are panicked and causing trouble. They don’t have any power compared to the people that I’m talking about. You think the Klan can compare to the mainstream media?

You think the Nazis, however many of them there are — or few — can compare to the media and academia and Hollywood? It’s a joke! The same thing with the Nazis and the same thing with the white supremacists. But when you talk Black Lives Matter, when you talk Occupy Wall Street or any of these other left-wing groups that end up rioting and protesting, they are the military wing of the people with power in this country. These people run the Washington establishment. You don’t find in you Klansmen there, and you don’t find any Nazis there, because there aren’t enough of those people to matter a hill of beans.

Neo-Nazis have no Power on the Internet, But Facebook Has Power to Shut Down Free Speech

Do you say, “Well, Rush, I gotta side with ’em. I don’t think the storm troopers ought to have a website, and I don’t think the supremacists ought to…” Okay, fine. Remember, they don’t have any power to do diddly-squat. All they can do is offend you and make you mad. They don’t have any power to do anything.

But do you think that three people — Zuckerberg and whoever the other two are that run PayPal and Facebook, Twitter, whatever. Do you think they ought to be able to wake up one day and just decide? But they’re doing it — under the guise, by the way, of cleansing and pursuing and sanctifying.

That’s not what they’re doing. They are limiting speech.
