Liberals Aren’t Funny, They’re a Riot!

Pages: 1 2

Like you, I’ve been horrified by the eruptions of mob violence around the globe this summer. But having spent the last two years researching and writing a book about mobs, I’m also grateful to the ruffians for taking to the streets so soon after my book was released.

Thanks, you dirty animals. I knew you wouldn’t let me down.

When I decided to write about mobs, it was a relatively peaceful period. But as long as there is evil in the world, mobs will never be finally defeated. And as long as there are liberals, there will be some people stoking the mobs.

It was only a matter of time, although even I didn’t expect it quite this soon.

Mobs are always the same — destructive, left-wing and without any clear cause. Why were young people in Britain tearing apart their cities, burning down businesses and stealing electronics and designer clothes? Because the cops shot someone? Please.

What has gotten on the last nerve of rioters in Greece, Paris and Vancouver? They’re jobless? Their government benefits have been cut? Their hockey team lost? They might as well destroy police cars because they’re upset about rainy days. (That’s not a suggestion, by the way — more of a rhetorical flourish.)

Why were public sector union workers in Wisconsin busting up the capitol and physically attacking Republican legislators? MSNBC’s Ed Schultz says it was because Republicans were trying to take away the people’s “civil rights.”

(Evidently, research showed the last seven people actually watching MSNBC were Wisconsin public school teachers.)

You have to do some digging to find out the public sector employees were upset that Republicans wanted government unions to engage in collective bargaining only over salary, but not work conditions or benefits — all funded by the taxpayers.

Why were black and Hispanic gang members looting after the Rodney King verdict? As if you needed to know, a Los Angeles policeman recently told me that the gang members he arrested in the riots said they didn’t know or care about Rodney King.

Why were masked hoodlums smashing Starbucks windows in Seattle a decade ago when some bankers came to town? They’re against the “global economy”? What does that even mean?

Like Satan, mobs are good only for destruction and chaos. The putative “cause” is always incidental. As Jesus said, “They hated me without a cause.”

The French Revolution is the template for all mob uprisings, and the signal event of that lunacy was an attack on a prison housing only half a dozen prisoners.

As best anyone can tell, the storming of the Bastille was instigated by a rumor that the laughably impotent King Louis XVI was about to stage an attack on the National Assembly. Or perhaps they were upset that the inept finance minister, Jacques Necker, had been fired. Or they thought the Bastille was an eyesore.

(The only other possible cause was recently ruled out when it was conclusively determined that France had no teachers unions in the late 18th century.)

No one is sure — but a good time was had by all! Except the prison administrators murdered in the attack.

Liberals love mobs because rioting and anarchy is their path to power.

    I just read Ann Coulter's DEMONIC….and it is intense. I never knew the French Revolution was so hideous. If you want some education, read Treason and Demonic. Excellent writing, and great research goes into these books. Also some trenchant humor.

    • TexExpatriate

      Hi, BS77. Yes, the French Revolution was the model for mob mania, and has served well ever since. During the seven- to nine-month long Democratic government of Russia in (I think) 1916-17, the Bolsheviks perfected mobology and took over Russia. Shudder if you realize it can happen here.

      I think the evidence Obama shows us from himself and his behavior puts him in the same gentle class of dictators as Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, and Pol Pot. Fortunately, the worst he can do to us is remain in power eight years, so we will likely avoid the pogroms and murders and imprisonments.

  • Supreme_Galooty

    Tax Ex, unfortunately you are wrong about the harm that can be perpetrated by the Poseur-in-Chief, the Lenin of the EPA, the Stalin of the Justice Department, The Demolition Man, The Economic Monkey Wrench Gang. It appears that all of the jobs "created or saved" by the Great Saviour from Chicago – 100% of them – went to hard-core, died in the wool, uber left extremists. These were "non political" civil service jobs. Jobs that cannot be eliminated, so when the new conservative wave sweeps the villains out of the White House and Congress, there will be a very sizable cadre of extreme left bureaucrats on hand to bollix things up.

    These people (Democrats) are treasonous; they hate America; and they should be prosecuted as appropriate.

    • scum

      What all this means is, Coulter has always supported brutal monarchical power to democracy. She hates America and the democracy we so cherish. By 'government employees' is Coulter including the military industrial complex which has bankrupted America? Does she care about the 7 billion missing in Iraq, and about the Pentagon's $50 forks, or is she just whistling Dixie? Whistling Dixie in more ways than one, by the way………..

      • Ozzy

        Why knock America just because some conservative Moron does? Annie is right about many things where the Left has a moral deficit. That is why it is so easy to lie about the so called Liberals when those same idiots decided to attack America in the days after 9/ll.
        Let's just review Annie's major premise. When there was slavery and a feudal state there was no Welfare.
        And her point is….?
        Yes, Annie, when there was slavery and Feudal systems funding your Aristocratic heroes, the slaves and serfs still did not pay taxes.
        Only the rich.

        There are no $50.00 dollar forks – unless the were purchased for some type of official place setting, which will still be in use for decades. When we hear the usual crap about $500 screwdrivers and $700 toilet seats; what they usually neglect to tell you is that these are usually specialty items made for specific pieces of equipment to DOD specifications. I realize this is difficult for all you Libtards to understand, but you don't just pick up specialty parts for 50 year old airplanes (like the toilet on a B-52) down at the nearest Home Depot.

    • Kevin Stroup

      Actually you can "fire" unfireable employees. You either eliminate the position, or you stop funding it. If they want to keep showing up they can, but they will not get paid. See how long that is going to last.

  • zsqpwxxeh

    Some vote with their hands; some vote with their feet. Mobs vote with their baseball bats. When the voting gets out of hand, in comes General Bonaparte to freshen the electoral process with a whiff of grapeshot.

    History has this way of repeating itself, you see.

    • scum

      DON'T WORRY, PRESIDENT PERRY WILL TAKE AWAY YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE FOR YOUR SENATORS. YOU SEE, HISTORY HAS A WAY OF REPEATING ITSELF. Coulter might even be his VP. Perry/Coulter are, indeed, monarchists of the worst order (Don't worry, he's going to abolish some amendments, but he'll keep your cherished 2nd Amendment. LOL). Enjoy 2012.

      • MikeGiles

        You do realize of course, that the Senate was supposed to represent the States – AS SEMI SOVEREIGN ENTITIES – in the US legislature. The people of the various states were represented by the House. Each was supposed to act a brake on the other. I do have to ask the question of why Left Loons hate the idea of giving the election of Senators back to the State Legislatures. Guess pouring millions of dollars of outside money into Senate elections would tend to fade away, as would the election of celebrity carpetbaggers like Hilary Clinton.

  • keoke888

    My favorite part is when "Anarchists" who are too historically illiterate to know that Anarchism means to be AGAINST having a government, commit violence to show how much they want state benefits.

    • scum

      You're confusing a few things about the history of anarchism. While it is absolutely a doctrine against government, the terms have shifted since the anti-globalization protests of the 90s to oppose the power of the transnationals (that are protected by the state).

    • scum

      On another note, if you provided a test, you would no doubt find that most self-styled anarchists, whether you like their politics or strategy (which is irrelevant), are in fact a HIGHLY LITERATE class of individuals. Of course, I assume by your statement that you mean 'uninformed.'

      • Supreme_Galooty

        You are once again mistaken. You blithely pull the hackneyed mechanism "are in fact" out of thin air to give artificial weight to your foaming. In today's "progressive" parlance, anarchists are statists, liberals are illiberal statists, and gay means queer. If today's "anarchists" are any reflection of the societies they contaminate by their presence, they are barely literate – if at all.

        • scum

          Therefore, by your ponderous, pendantic, hyperbolic, overbloated logic, those 'statist anarchists' must in fact be conniving with the various factions of law and order that attack them with billy clubs in the streets. For the Supreme Galooty, as for Orwell, up always means down, and so on. Yea, I know some ginormous words too, bro.

  • davarino

    Ann's book points out that the American revolution and French revulsion were two totally different things. On the one hand American patriots fought for freedom and stressed restraint in battle, whereas in France it turned into a blood bath with only revenge as its goal. Maybe revenge isnt the right word. What happened was more like any of the riots of today, people were on a rampage with no real goal, only killing and destruction.

    Ann's book does not preclude revolution, but when free men have no other recourse then the chains of opression must be fought against.

    • scum

      This post and Coulter's so-called article are both a redux of an extremely dangerous and misleading comparison of what are mistakenly called the 'French Revolution' and the 'American Revolution.' By using these misleading terms, it provides the shallow analyst with the sense that the two can easily be compared (which inevitably leads to 'we got it right' and 'France got it wrong,' which leads to the false notions of 'American Exceptionalsm'). The American Revolution was actually the WAR FOR AMERICAN INDEPENDENCE (an anti-colonial war, NOT a revolution). This is precisely why the French example was far bloodier: WE DID NOT GO TO ENGLAND TO KILL THE KING AND UNSEAT PARLIAMENT. Of course, had we done so, it would have gotten VERY UGLY, as with the French example. Coulter touts long-discarded notions of comparison that provide false notions of American supremacy.

      • MikeGiles

        The Americans had already in shown their opinion of King and Parliament, most of their ancestors had crossed the ocean to get away from both, for any number of reasons. You are correct though on the difference between the two "Revolutions". The Americans were fighting to retain rights they had come to enjoy over their history in this country. The French, had never had these rights and when they gained them so lost them, because they were soon engaging in an orgy of revenge. It was the difference between adults who understood what they were fighting for and teenagers who suddenly had the keys to dad's Ferrari, their own credit card and access to the liquor cabinet.

    • scum

      The French Revolution, unlike the war here, went through numerous stages before the dust settled. It never was a 'Patriot v. Tory' conflict. Furthermore, the War for American Independence was hardly a case when the 'chains of oppression' had to be fought against. The reason for taxing the colonies was, of course, to pay for the French and Indian war (which must make the Patriots 'anti-war Democrats' in some twisted universe) which was fought on our soil, not in England (hence the English population opposed taxation effectively). And prior to that, the so-called 'Boston Tea Party,' which is just a cute name given to the illegal, unwarranted destruction of private property which was never repaid, was only the result of the British wanting to land the tea ashore. NO ONE WOULD HAVE BEEN REQUIRED TO BUY IT. There was far more repression in the Ancien Regime than there was in Boston. LOL LOL

      • MikeGiles

        The British government had given the East India Company a monopoly on tea imported into the colonies. The colonials thought they should be able to ship their own tea in their own ships. And the French and Indian War (or the Seven Years War) was fought from North America to India, it wasn't that the Americans objected to helping pay for it, it's that they wanted any bills to gain the approval of the colonial assemblies. They didn't particularly care for having decisions about their lives made by strangers on the other side of the ocean. "No Taxation Without Representation". Ever hear that before?

  • scum

    Wow, with another look at Coulter's so-called 'article,' she just really jumps around from one absurdity to another. Suddenly the Democrats have 'destroyed the family.' The mob is always 'Leftists', and so on. I knew she was certifiable (see her completely incomprehensible 'NEW YORK TIMES READER KILLS DOZENS IN NORWAY' garbage), but it's interesting that even FPM continues to publish her drivel.

  • scum

    Please someone, point me to the source where Coulter complained about the TEA BAGGER MOBS complaining about Obamare with their ideological.y incoherent signs that read "HANDS OFF MY MEDICARE." In fact, someone please cite me the source in which any FPM contributor at all complained either about the mobs or the politics of the Right demanding the retention of Medicare/aid. Thanks, Scum

    • MikeGiles

      Uh scum,
      You really don't know that Obamacare was supposed to be financed partially out of Medicare? Which explains those signs? Not too swift are you?

  • wordy2011

    Ann,
    Conservatives who pander to homosexuals aren't funny either. Thinking people have known for centuries that homosexual activity is immoral and a bad legal precedent. And they've known that homosexuality is obviously a disorder (despite what the compromised APA now says). Let's progress, not go back thousands of years to Sodom.

  • zsqpwxxeh

    Scum's back. There goes the neighborhood. (Don't feed him; he's paid by the reply.)

    • scum

      Yadda, Yadda. Feel free to answer the question about the citation critiquing the Tea Party crowd that demanded that Obama protect Medicare/Medicaid. It's the only 'mob' I'm aware of that has gone public about the issue, despite Coulter's blathering about 'liberals.' If you can't do that, stop your own blathering.

      • MikeGiles

        Allow me to explain, dumb sh*t. A peaceful demonstration is not a "mob". You can usually tell a mob by the fact that they hide their faces and run when the police show up.

        • scum

          Really, a curse word? You learned that on the playground, big boy? Can you back it up in person? Interesting that you mention a peaceful demonstration. A demonstration for what? For teabaggers wanting to retain their Medicaid/Medicare gravy train? Again, where's the citation for Coulter or anyone on this site that critiqued the teabagger position?? It's possible there is one. I'm willing to entertain the possiblity that it exists, and I'll applaud the person who is at least ideologically consistent enough to proffer it. Otherwise, it's obviously a case of crude political posturing.

    In the United States, we have "FLASH-MOBBING".

    Understand that FLASH-MOBBING makes for good practice for when the time comes for "OFFICIAL RIOTING". In fact, FLASH-MOBBING is practiced on almost a daily basis now in all different places in the United States. So, when the time comes for OFFICIAL RIOTING, all rioters are going to be rioting-experts because of all the FLASH-MOBBING practices they will have gotten-in by the time OFFICIAL RIOTING begins. Note: OFFICIAL RIOTING will begin if (A) Obama's fake birth certificate becomes a…………"problem", or, (B) Obama does not win re-election.

  • CisscoKidd

    At this point, I think it is good to look to the esteemed and honorable and immortal H. Rap Brown for clues to help us understand this MOBBING and RIOTING phenomenon. H. Rap Brown warned us about this type of thing many years ago when he gave us these wise and sacred proclamations–(1) I say violence is necessary. It is as American as cherry pie, (2) If America don't come around, we're gonna' burn it down, (3) The only politics in this country that's relevant to black people today is the politics of revolution… none other, (4) We talking about revolution because that's the era that you're caught in, and (5) An old African leader says about leadership, he says that leadership should never be shared; it should always remain in the hands of the dispossessed people. We will lead the revolution.

    H. Rap Brown put it all in a nutshell for us. We should thank H. Rap Brown.

  • Supreme_Galooty

    If there have EVER been any "old African leaders," I wish them a special place in hell right next to Idi Amin, Robert Mugabe, and Mohamed. The esteemed and honorable H. Rap Brown, being immortal, can while away his eons writing poetry on the dark side of Themisto.

    As for the author of this piece, I thank her – and I want to make a special note of the fact that she is a student at York University in Toronto (my own daughter’s university), a school that has been known for the anti-Israel, anti-Semitic views of far too many students. You are a brave woman and we appreciate your words.
