Default Violence Equals Votes For Democrats

Violence Equals Votes For Democrats

Posted on May 24, 2017 by admin

The Democrats have unveiled a new strategy in their comprehensive program to move the country forward. It’s called “We’re not listening.”

And if the rest of us don’t shut up, they tell us, we’re gonna get socked on the nose. Or worse: Coexist or we’ll kill you.

That’s the message from a top Democrat in California, and also from Obama. It’s the same message, albeit to a greater degree, which terrorists delivered in Manchester, UK this week.

Fearing the ultimate danger of free speech — free exchange of ideas –Democrats staged a planned walk-out of Notre Dame grads last week when mild-mannered vice president Mike Pence addressed a graduation ceremony at the Midwestern Catholic university. Pence said something radical defending the Little Sisters of the Poor, also Catholic, who felt their freedom of conscience was violated under Obamacare.

Oh, my: What radical little sisters.

But by the time Pence spoke, the Democrats had already absconded.

Fair enough.

Why stay, I guess they reasoned, when nothing someone says will change your mind? And before I get accused of plagiarism, I freely admit that something similar was said by Osama bin Laden, or the Mensheviks or someone equally violent, committed and immoral.

While the “We’re not listening” ruse isn’t exactly new, it’s on the rise and more than once it’s been accompanied by Democrat sanctioned violence.

Last month true conservative firebrand Ann Coulter was on again, off again at Berkley University. To put Berkley’s left-wing bona fides in perspective, it was Berkley that quite seriously put forward the notion in the 1960s that LSD was a positive good. Really.

But the good ideas never end at Berkley. They have refined the “We’re not listening” tactics to include “STFU,” with brass knuckles as punctuation. I’m not kidding.

According to Politico, Berkley demonstrators, who the publication termed “anti-fascists”, allegedly used brass knuckles, “set fires, threw rocks and smashed windows,” when a previous conservative was scheduled to speak.

What’s next? Bombings? The Radical Left was as familiar with bombings in the late 1960s and 1970s as they were with LSD. So really, it’s not out of the question.

Just this week a Puerto Rican terrorist captured decades ago, got a hero’s welcome in Chicago, New York and other Dem bastions after Obama commuted his 70 year sentence to time served. Oscar López Rivera founded the FALN, a violent Puerto Rican nationalist group that was responsible for hundreds of bombings that killed at least six people while wounding 130 or more according to the New York Post.

New York is literally throwing him a parade.


So it should not surprise us that one Democrat strategist—presumably an “anti-fascist”– says the violence is useful and engaging.

From Politico:

Bob Mulholland, a Democratic strategist in California, said the effect of a restrained conflict is “good for the system … as long as it doesn’t get way out of hand.” Protests that spark conflict draw media attention, he said, potentially inspiring viewers to engage in politics.

Mulholland isn’t just a strategist, however. He’s routinely mentioned as the “senior advisor and long time chief spokesperson” of the California Democrats. He’s also a member of the Democrat National Committee as an infamous super-delegate, and a member of the California Dem’s Executive Board.

The silence from Democrats about Mulholland’s brazen advocacy of violence is golden in the Golden State. He could, as we speak, be planning “restrained conflict” that might result in serious injury or death, all because someone wanted to make a speech and others wanted to shut them up.

There should be no tolerance for terror. Our former president wouldn’t say it, and apparently his party will follow suit. Or even throw a parade to celebrate violence.

And that’s the problem with Mulholland’s violent “We’re not listening, so just shut up” strategy.

Voters are listening. And they don’t like what guys like Mulholland are saying. Violence is violence, and it’s terrifying that in our republic some in a major party should advocate it because it helps turn out a parade of voters.

Mulholland will help Democrats lose more elections I can guarantee it, because he’s white and not named Obama. But he’s really bad for the country, however much he helps the GOP.

That’s because as the events in Manchester, Paris, Tel Aviv, Berkley and other terror stricken cities have learned, you only need a small group of people to listen to calls for violence, restrained or otherwise.

The country needs peace, and the Democrats are intent on war, or so it seems.

So here’s the question to my Dem friends: Why does a guy like Mulholland still have a responsible position in your party?

We’ll hang-up and listen for your answer.

That is when you finish planning the Manchester parade.

Regarding the OP:
The moron Democrat from California (where else? ) is advocating violence.
But I know that is fine with many on the Left, so no biggie, huh?


Regarding Wally's off topic post:

If I were a man I would punch someone that got in my face screaming too.

There is video, you can bet on that, reporters were there with their camera's, they just aren't giving it up.

The reporter got all agressive and up in the guy's face and got floored for it, that will teach him, good lesson learned by the Reporter and I could care less.

Trump supporters got the crap beat out of them, spit on, and maced and all they were doing was showing support for Trump.

So don't ask me to cry a river for some a$$hole reporter.

He got what he deserved IMHO.

figures that a liberal mod would try to divert the thread away from the violence advocated by one of his fellow travelers.

Wink Re: Violence Equals Votes For Democrats

Montana candidate Greg Gianforte wins after body-slamming reporter...

Montana Republican Wins Special U.S. House Race Despite Assault Charge
May 26, 2017 - Republican Greg Gianforte overcame an election eve assault charge filed against him that sparked national attention, defeating Democrat Rob Quist in the race for Montana’s open U.S. House seat Thursday.
Quote:
The result is a major disappointment for progressive activists who poured money into the campaign to help Quist, a banjo-playing songwriter and political newcomer, in a bid to notch a symbolically important win against President Donald Trump. The defeat is especially demoralizing for Democrats in light of the misdemeanor assault charge against Gianforte, a multimillionaire tech entrepreneur and social conservative, for allegedly “body slamming” Ben Jacobs of The Guardian on Wednesday while the reporter was asking about the GOP health care bill. Gianforte’s campaign blamed Jacobs, casting him as a “liberal reporter” who acted “aggressively” toward the Republican as he was about to be interviewed by a TV crew. But Alicia Acuna, the Fox News reporter who was slated to interview Gianforte, corroborated Jacobs’ version of events, and the incident spurred widespread condemnation of the Republican.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the liberal group MoveOn.org blasted Gianforte with a last-minute ad campaign highlighting the incident as evidence he was “unfit to serve” and had “no business being in Congress.” House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) urged Gianforte to apologize and called his behavior “wrong.” And three Montana newspapers withdrew their endorsement of him. The Missoulian newspaper said “there is no doubt that Gianforte committed an act of terrible judgment that, if it doesn’t land him in jail, also shouldn’t land him in the U.S. House of Representatives.” A factor likely benefiting Gianforte was that before news broke of Wednesday’s altercation, more than one-third of Montana’s registered voters had cast early ballots, according to state election officials. Still, Quist’s loss will inevitably fuel criticism that the national Democratic Party got involved in the race too late.

Even before Thursday’s results were known, Jeff Hauser, a veteran progressive political strategist at the Center for Economic and Policy Research’s Revolving Door Project, had told HuffPost that “the national Democrats who provided financial assistance after mail-in voting had already begun will have to question anew their initial reluctance to engage in the race in March and early April.” “Early funding might have ensured more consistent tracking on Gianforte,” Hauser added, referring to the attack on the reporter. “It almost seems like you never know when Gianforte might commit a crime under a modicum of scrutiny.” Under almost any circumstances, a Democratic win would have been an upset. Even as Quist’s standing improved in the campaign’s final weeks, none of the polls released in advance of the race showed him ahead of Gianforte.

Montana’s at-large U.S. House seat opened up in December when Trump tapped Ryan Zinke as his interior secretary. Republican Zinke had cruised to re-election in November by nearly 16 percentage points. Trump carried the state over Democratic rival Hillary Clinton by 20 points. Democratic presidential candidates have triumphed in the state just twice since 1952, most recently when Bill Clinton won it in 1992. Still, in a state with a sizable segment of independents, Democrats at times have held their own in down-ballot races. One of them is current Gov. Steve Bullock, who won re-election in 2016 when he defeated Gianforte by 4 percentage points.

Sorry but no one in their right mind is going to take this BS seriously.

BTW - Liberal Democrats fully support freedom of speech, including the right to protests, also oppose violence. The violence that has been associated with liberal protests of conservative speakers has not come from Democrats. It's come from anarchists that also oppose the radical and un-American Republican agenda of President Donald Trump.

Liberals across the nation condemned threats of violence that resulted in UC Berkley's decision to postpone Ann Coulter's speech.

Quote:
“The unacceptable threats of violence that have led to the ‘hecklers’ veto’ of Ann Coulter’s speech at Berkeley are inconsistent with free speech principles that protect us all from government overreach. Hateful speech has consequences, particularly for people of color, LGBTQ people, immigrants, and others who have been historically marginalized. But if the government gets to decide which speech counts as hate speech, the powers that be may later feel free to censor any speech they don’t like.

“For the future of our democracy, we must protect bigoted speech from government censorship. On college campuses, that means that the best way to combat hateful speech is through counter-speech, vigorous and creative protest, and debate, not threats of violence or censorship.”

Waaaaa?....

The subject was "vote getting methods"...

There's no possible way any reasonable person believes Gianforte intentionally slammed that reporter in an attempt to get votes...

That's FAR different from setting fires, throwing rocks and smashing windows to prevent Conservative voices from being heard, thus more people don't get their message and vote Democrat...
