If we were to listen to the lectures from the media, we are on the cusp of an outbreak of violence set to explode from the right side of the political spectrum. President Biden has enthusiastically pushed this agenda, positioning MAGA Nation as a violent faction orchestrating an uprising of democracy-threatening actions any day now. At Biden’s direction, “fascist” has become the left’s new knee-jerk accusation since “racist” has become a played-out charge.
There is one disqualifier; the actual acts that we have recently seen that fall under this heading are emanating from the left. There have been numerous incidents of leftist political violence over the past year, yet – despite typifying the very promised outbreak of outrage – these are somehow not classified as dangerous, get explained away, or are outright ignored by the press.
The following examples perfectly display the very promised violence they say will arrive any day now from the conservative right, and their willingness to not address these incidents exposes the effort to demonize and criminalize only one side of the political arena.
North Dakota Political Killing
Last week, Shannon Brandt was arrested for using his car to run over and kill an 18-year-old who he declared was a “Republican extremist.” There has been a notable lack of enthusiasm in reporting on this on a national level, and we have been spared numerous news panel discussions, editorials, and think pieces decrying the political divide in this country. Some are even going so far as to say there is no evidence that this was a politically-motivated attack – despite the fact that the suspect, Shannon Brandt, repeatedly stated he did this as a result of the political stance of his victim.
Las Vegas Reporter Killed
The news outlets have not exactly been filled with lengthy reports on the murder of Las Vegas Review-Journal reporter Jeff German in his front yard. German is believed to have been stabbed repeatedly by a Democrat politician he had investigated and reported on, Clark County Public Administrator Robert Telles. In covering the attack and the arrest of Telles, most news outlets are side-stepping the party affiliation of Telles. The morning shows never mentioned this, the Associated Press covered his hearing with no allusion to his party, and even CNN, in four stories on the attack, only managed deep in the later piece to mention Telles lost his primary this summer.
Campaign Violence in Texas
This weekend, Governor Greg Abbot’s campaign office released details about campaign workers who were attacked while canvassing on behalf of the governor. Outside of Houston, a man chased the volunteers and damaged their car after attempting to pull them from their vehicle. An arrest was made after the accused man was found to have pieces of their damaged car in his trash.
SCOTUS Justices Threatened
The repeal of Roe v. Wade led to protests outside of the private homes of select members of the highest court, and yet we saw Democrats, the press, and even the White House shrug off these antagonistic steps as just citizens exercising their right to protest. When a California man was arrested after crossing the country with weapons in order to target Brett Kavanaugh, there was nothing in the way of genuine concern over the rise of political threats of violence.
Summer of Organized Violence
The SCOTUS decision on Roe v. Wade perhaps shows best the bifurcated approach by the press. On the one hand, they resort to condemning violence, yet when the left acts up in order to protect abortion, they have to remain in support of those acts. This is how we get examples like CNN’s Jim Sciutto insisting that there are impending riots coming from conservatives in reaction to the leaked Alito draft opinion. Conservatives would riot over…a decision they favor is the claim.
Meanwhile, pro-abortion activists were openly calling for violent actions, and throughout the country, dozens of pregnancy care center offices were attacked, with some even firebombed. As the activist group Jane’s Revenge called for these actions – and they played out – the condemnation was not to be found.
Kentucky Gun Control Activist Shooting
It has been conveniently memory-holed in the press how this past February, Quintez Brown, an anti-gun activist, attempted to shoot a mayoral candidate at this campaign office. Considering all of the hot-button issues attached to this crime – gun control, race, antisemitism, a journalist, political violence – that it was a leftist activist crossing over all of those lines means the press would rather you just forget the whole story.
The Insurrection That Never Was
Following the Capitol riot, the media was promising us repeated flare-ups of that kind of violence last year. In March, D.C. closed down for an impending arrival of protests that never materialized; then, another uprising was expected in May. In September, hundreds of law enforcement officers converged for the Justice for January 6 Rally and the expected furor, only to outnumber the peaceful attendees, who disbanded without so much as a raised voice.
But then, in October, it finally occurred. All the earmarks of an insurrection took place as protestors stormed a federal office in D.C. to oppose governmental legislation, vandalized the building, burst past security, occupied the location, and placed numerous police in the hospital during the assault. You probably never realized this because the attack on a Saturday was lightly covered, and once the realization was that these treasonous moves were organized by left-wing environmentalists, committing these acts the press declared to be atrocities against our democracy, they dropped the story before that Monday.
Biden Inspiring Violent Rhetoric
The media loves to hurl accusations that Republicans can say things that are promised to incite violence. Funny that when a Democrat says something that leads directly to a violent reprisal, there is no condemnation to be delivered, especially when it is the president. Immediately following his infamous primetime speech where he called MAGA Republicans violent fascists, in Florida, a GOP election office was hit with vandalism, invoking the term used by Biden. The outrage in the press over this incitement has yet to arrive.
Republican Candidate Threatened On Stage
When Lee Zeldin was giving a campaign speech in New York, he was approached directly by an individual with a sharp instrument. Zelden fended off the assailant before he was corralled by handlers. The media worked to recalibrate what happened as less of a threat, going so far as to state the man was impaired and only approached Zeldin with “a plastic cat keychain.” In truth, the item the man wielded was, in fact, a designed weapon, but the press had their talking point in place to entirely dismiss the incident.
An impressive list, and this does not encompass any of the permitted violence we witnessed with the riots spreading across the country recently. All of the above examples were following the Capitol riot when we were promised violence would be swelling from the right. It seems to work in a similar fashion to Obama being granted a “scandal-free” term; if the press does not count incidents of violence, then statistically, they did not take place.

This is the communist’s playbook and was the National Socialist Party’s playbook in Germany. Why shouldn’t Biden use it?

The January 6th riot wasn’t a riot; it was the response from a static, benign crowd of patriots that were attacked by DC cops for half an hour.
DC cops that had voluntarily removed barriers and invited the protesters into the ellipsis, then later fired flash bangs, rubber bullets, and tear gas into the pro-Trump tailgate party.
That unprovoked attack resulted in killing it’s first casualty of the day, Kevin Greeson who was hit in the eye. Rosanne Boyland was killed later after being beaten by a DC cop while down & unresponsive.
The street-trash George Floyd never received anything like that, but it looked bad on camera while the low-life overdosed on fentanyl. (It looked much worse when Floyd pistol whipped & shoved a gun into the gut of a pregnant woman – it just didn’t happen on camera.)

Violent behavior against Conservatives by the Liberal/Bolsheveks and what even became of the Nao-Nazi Skinheads we saw and heard so much about in the 19990’s Now is it involved Conservatives the media Vultures and Sharks would have feeding freinzie but since its involves Violent Liberals we hear crickets
But the dems refuse to watch outside the Fake msm!

Soviet-style AGITPROP, refined and modernized.

Joe Biden in a recent speech condemning “political violence.” At face value, that statement seems OK.
Nevertheless, a number of things are wrong. in what he said about “political violence” Biden was speaking about the mayhem that occurred on January 6, 2021, Biden even said that, and slanderously called the American patriots” insurrectionists” who had been framed in that leftist set up, but he said nothing about the most horrendous political violence carried out, repeatedly in different cities by the violent lawless criminal and malicious and even, at times, murderous Marxist, of Antifa and BLM.
Furthermore, Biden didn’t condemn the political /religious violence, many times over, by Muslim terrorists. As one of the major characters in Iran’s Islamic revolution in 1979, Ayatollah Khomeini had, rightly, declared, “All Islam is politics.” 
In addition, Biden completely failed to condemn all violence, not only “political violence.”
For the horrible reality is the there is much non-political violence ranging from bands of Criminal gangs, as the most heinous and evil MS-13 to domestic home violence.
That speech delivered by Joe Biden was terrible and so is he.

A new appropriate title for that horrible pseudo-US “president” would now be “Joe Biden the demented and dangerous.”
Furthermore, if Joe Biden be best compared to Adolf Hitler or Vladimir Lenin., whichever villain best describes him, Biden is vicious and dangerous.

Sorry as long as the lfet engages in violence and the Right insists on Sunday school behavior both the outcome and intensity of violence the Right can expect is foreseeable.
You are not dealing with reasonable, descent human beings. You are dealing with rabid animals. They worship at the altair of abortion. They celebrate the most depraved and crazed among us. They promote racist standards whenever they can. They use terrorist tactics and train their devotees. This has been going on for decades. Remember environmentalists placing bobby traps in trees for loggers would be maimed or killed. Now they are sabotaging railines and pipelines.
Yet the GOPe does nothing. They created the swamp under Bush. They eliminated the PACE exam and now you have a federal government filled with leftist cadres.
