Silencing the Right Over the Violence

 

There has been a rash of “Free Speech” rallies and “Support the Constitution” rallies which have had their permits pulled due to the inevitable rioting which appears to be part and parcel of their coming together. Who can blame any protection oriented city council and mayor for pulling or refusing a permit to gather and hold a rally to any group which might erupt into violence and destroy their downtown or other area. The intended “Patriot Prayer” Rally which was cancelled in San Francisco was a perfect example. Only a day earlier the rally to celebrate the Trump Presidency at the Berkeley campus became a melee where the chief organizer of the “Patriot Prayer” Rally, Joey Gibson, according to police reports, had to be taken into protective custody as he became a specific target of some of the protestors and was endangered. This was reported by Lizzie Johnson on her Twitter Feed where commentary that follows depicts two opposing views of the events. Unfortunately, or fortunately, depending on your positions and review of the video, the entire scene was videoed and can be viewed below. The man with his hands raised and backing away, while being assaulted intermittently and having something sprayed towards his face, is reported to be Joey Gibson. He apparently was accompanied by a large gentleman in American football shoulder pads apparently attempting to protect and guide him eventually turns him over to the police where we lose him behind the police wall (see video below). At about the 0:49 second mark a brick like appearing object bounces off the guard’s head with little apparent affect.

 

 

The violence against the pro-Trump rally attendees was the given reason for the cancellation of the “Patriot Prayer” Rally by the city officials of San Francisco. San Francisco is not alone, as other cities have stated intent to disallow right-wing rallies, as they will result in violence which the city officials claim is sufficient reason to prevent such rallies. Nobody has made any references to cancellations of leftist rallies but, then again, there has been no violence at leftist rallies, only at right leaning rallies such as pro-Trump, Free-Speech, Prayer, pro-Military and similar such right-wing rallies. This tendency was further proven at the Boston Free-Speech Rally where over twenty-thousand protestors threw urine-filled bottles and other objects at police as they were kept well over two-hundred-meters from the stage and the organizers who basically gave their speeches to one another. There was rioting at another pro-Trump rally, only this time in Phoenix, Arizona. The same has been reported from a Costa Mesa pro-Trump Rally in Orange County fairgrounds where police were posted around the entire area and the Fairgrounds Board of Directors announced they were changing their criteria for approving gatherings such that only those without any threat of violence will be granted license. Another Trump Free Speech Rally drew hundreds of demonstrators to a public square near City Hall in Portland, Oregon on June 4, 2017, where a far larger throng of counter-protesters and onlookers massed on three sides of the park in a heated encounter that grew tense but at least physical violence was avoided thanks to a heavy police presence. There have been violent protests disrupting virtually every free-speech, prayer, pro-veteran, Republican Townhall meeting and pro-Trump rally since the election of President Trump. The catch is the media is covering these violence prone rallies now more so than before the election. If we remember back, there was a cancelled Chicago Trump rally due to threatened violence and violence at virtually every campaign stop made by either Trump or Pence as well as numerous Republican candidates’ gatherings if they were endorsed by Trump.

The idea that any rally or gathering by conservatives or those who support conservative causes can be made to appear bad in the media if rioting should break out, especially should there be injuries to any leftists who can then make a full report of their encounter to the media is nothing new. This was the script during much of the late sixties and early seventies anti-war movement and other leftist causes. The left learned early that violence gets covered while nice, polite, quiet and peaceful rallies get next to no coverage beyond the people who attend them. The left learned that if you wish to be heard across a wider range of people and audiences, then simply riot and force arrests and make as much noise and created mayhem as humanly possible. Some of the most militant leftist groups such as the Weather Underground resorted to real violence and murdered police and bombed police stations and even conservative rallies in order to gain publicity. The left believed that all publicity is good publicity, and that included bad publicity. Back then, it was all about making sure they were heard from whether it was for their message or for the protest turned riot. Now the whole idea is that nobody they disapprove of be heard or even permitted to speak.

 

The left, actually the extreme left led by Anti-fa, have found their magic eraser with which they believe they can squelch all speech which offends them. What is even more frightening is that a plurality of college students questioned believes that the First Amendment should only apply to approved speech which meets speech codes and is proven inoffensive. Even more disconcerting is that they believe that their college leftist professors’ idea that speech must offend nobody before it can be permitted to be spoken in public is the best course to maintain a decent society. They have proven their great inability to be offended by the most basic ideas to such an extent that their universities and colleges have put in place safe spaces where students can gather and not be challenged by any terse or edgy talk or comment and have specific places on campus well off the beaten path where conservative and other controversial speech can be screamed to one’s hearts content without reaching an ear which may be offended. The entire liberal arts university scene is designed not to challenge the unquestioning minds of the student population but rather to protect them from those things which they may find disturbing. These poor young children are sensitive and must not be disturbed or made distraught. They are to be coddled and after four years, they will go out into the “big bad world” and demand to have their world made safe and their ideas spoon fed just as it was in university. These youth are going to be the future of the United States and will be the ones making and enforcing the rules within the next ten to twenty years. Imagine the method in which the First Amendment will be interpreted and applied in such a manner that speech codes will be applied and people fined for using speech deemed challenging to people’s sensitivities. The Second Amendment will be completely turned on its head such that instead of the people being armed to prevent an overreaching government, the government will have all the weapons and the people will be unable to reach for liberties they once enjoyed. We can forget about the Fourth Amendment as all your papers and personal information will be stored in the cloud where the NSA can read anything anytime. The Fifth Amendment’s disallowing self-incrimination will be ineffective as the government will see all, hear all and know all within reason and beyond so there will be little if any secrecy, well, unless you live out in the woods and completely off the grid in a well camouflaged residence which also prevents heat signatures from being detected from above and are knowledgeable of when satellites will be overhead and thus schedule your outside activities around these times. The new age and the college educated new age wunderkind will destroy all freedoms for which the Bill of Rights was demanded. What a sad commentary it is to hear that free speech must have strict restrictions so people are not offended which is a commentary on the coming future, such a far cry from the people of the era of the founding Fathers who understood individualism and freedom. Now the schools start from first grade conditioning the students to work in groups such that nobody can be judged and everybody will be considered as a member of the group and the group will be judged as a whole. This way nobody can be considered inadequate which might endanger their self-image, and that would be terrible for their sensitive temperament. We can see a world where students are grouped at an early age and then proceed through life as a group, are hired as a group and get fired as a group and each member is responsible for the other members of their groups and these groups follow them through their entire lives. Well, except for those terribly unfortunate experiences where one may get injured or otherwise leave the group for a period or permanently, then the entire group will require deep counseling, that we can assure you. Yes, should the New World Order that the Anti-fa desire enacting come to pass and all their earth-shattering new concepts become reality, well, if I am still breathing I will be on the first spaceship leaving the new Eden and off to elsewhere.
