The Naked Face Of Leftism: Thug America [Updates Below]

11 December 2012 @ 18:00


Welcome to The Land Of Hope And Change…welcome to the jungle…

Today Steven Crowder and the people in the Americans For Prosperity tent [two of whom were in wheelchairs, according to reports] in Lansing, Michigan were set upon by union thugs.  Steven was repeatedly punched by, as far as I can see from the video below, by at least two union goons as he tried to protect the people in the tent.

Here’s the video he has uploaded:

Here’s some more from the scene, taken by Fox News [BTW: Reporter Mike Tobin is a Dupe]:

Please see Smitty’s comments here and Twitchy’s reporting here, here, and here.

This is exactly the kind of behavior the Left wants to see.  Ever since Leftism came into being in the mid-18th Century, they have believed a necessary first step in bringing about Revolution is to sow Chaos in all areas of the society.  They want the populace to break into tribes of competing grievance groups.  To achieve this, the Left needs many groups from various fields it can count on to do it’s dirty work — bureaucrats, elected officials, academics, etc.  These minions of the Masterminds lay the ground work by sabotaging all of the institutions of the Society from within and without, working to pervert and, thus weaken, the existing Culture.

At some point, however, the Leftist Masterminds need to move to the next phase of the march to Revolution: violence.  We have entered that phase in the last few years in The United States Of America.  Barack Hussein Obama and his comrades have encouraged and nurtured and unleashed forces designed to tear this country apart.

To bring about the violence of this next phase, the Masterminds need their assault troops to disrupt peaceful assemblies and physically attack opponents of the Leftists seeking to implement the Revolution.  In Russia in 1917, in France in the late 18th Century, in Germany in the early 1930’s, in China in the mid-20th Century, and now in America in the early years of the 21st Century, the Left has turned to thugs to be their storm troops.  Members of unions controlled by Communists and Socialists, such as SEIU and the AFL/CIO, are being used as a modern version of the Sturmabteilung [better known to us as the ‘SA’].

These criminal thugs are rarely arrested, let alone prosecuted, because many of the arms of law enforcement — such as the unionized police forces and district and state attorney’s office — have been infiltrated by Progressives and corrupted.  If, by chance, one of these violent criminals is brought before a judge, he stands very little chance of being sent to prison because so many members of the judiciary are either corrupted or live in fear of the Leftists in power and their assault troops.

Welcome to Chaos, where the Rule Of Law has been replaced by the Rule Of Thuggery, where might makes right, where no decent person is safe.

It’s happening, America.  Pretending that it’s not is not an option any longer.

A Final Note: The next time you get the urge welling up inside of you to give any Leftist the benefit of the doubt when it comes to their responsibility for this kind of vile and disgusting behavior, remember that they all — every single one of them — believe that the ends always justify the means, no matter how despicable those means are.  The end goal is all to the Leftist.  They will trample upon anyone and anything to get to it if asked to.

I may Update this post later on.

UPDATE at 1931…

-Typos corrected in the original post.

-William Jacobson has a picture of the guy who punched Steve Crowder.

-Smitty [who was kind enough to link back] comments:

It seems that the Americans for Prosperity tent was a hotbed of raaaaacism, and the 1% were using it as a base for #WarOnWomen attacks. So I guess you can sympathize with the need for ‘honest’, State-fearing Union Goons to protect the turf on which the tent sat, and the power that the Union had accumulated through years of graft.

    Good on them for pulling out the cameras. Best way to stop thuggery is to expose it.

    You can never give the left the benefit of the doubt. You may have doubt, but they never do.

    I think they are trying to foment a true civil war, something this country has never seen. We’ve never had two, or more, parties contending for control of teh government in this country. The misnamed Civil War, known more accurately as “The War Of Northern Aggression,” or “The War To Prevent Southern Independence,” was not a civil war. The South simply wanted to be left alone. The northeastern money men could stand for their economic colony to get out of the raw deal. 1860-1865 was nasty enough. A real civil war would destroy the country completely. Durant’s chapter in his first volume of “The Story of Civilization, “titled “The Suicide of Greece,” is instructive. Macedon took over and destroyed the Greek City States and Greece never recovered from their stupidity. The US is going down that same path.

    We saw the same thing with the Democrats’ support of the Occupy crowd–it’s in the wannabe tyrant’s best interests to foment anarchy so that the sheeple will demand strong government suppression of the mob.

      Yeah, but even the union nitwits know better than to try and put on the Reich or become Red Guards.

        Besides, we live in The Age Of The Slob. So methinks t-shirts and jeans will be the American Bolshe’s uniform of choice – with a baseball cap, of course.

      Well, Americans have never been natty dressers.
