1. The revolution continues. It can be stopped easily. We just have to recognize it for what it is. Then we know how to respond. But meanwhile…

On 50th day of violent antifa/BLM protests in Portland, rioters barricaded the doors of several buildings. They set off explosive fireworks on the facilities. When police responded, they were met by thrown glass, rocks & metal pieces. Several arrests made. https://t.co/gQ1UCSfwB0 pic.twitter.com/mOogLI5CoO

Chicago descended into a war zone on Friday night as a protest at the Christopher Columbus statue in Grant Park devolved into a violent riot, complete with assaults on police and an attempt to pull down the statue of the Genovese Catholic who connected the Old World and the New.
“Columbus was a murderer! Columbus was a thief!” rioters chanted, according to The Chicago Tribune. Hundreds of protesters took part in a Black Lives Matter rally that also championed Native Americans. At about 7 p.m., one of the protesters shouted that Chicago police had gone to protect the Columbus statue.

5. A carefully crafted group of sexual outliers didn’t get the memo that their creation as an activist force was for one purpose only. To destroy individual rights of any kind. So this action was unexpected

A pair of migrants were arrested this week after allegedly breaking into a Christian chapel on the Greek island of Chios and looting it for money and sacred objects.
The two migrants, a 27-year-old and a 30-year-old, are said to have broken into the chapel using some sort of sharp object and then looted it, stealing various liturgical items such as oil and holy water and even plastic chairs they found inside.
According to a report from Greek newspaper Proto Thema, the alleged thieves also broke into a car next to the chapel and stole more items from it, including a small amount of cash. They then tried to break into another nearby vehicle but were unsuccessful.
Local police have launched an investigation into the thefts and found some of the stolen items, along with the tools used to break into the chapel.
Mayor Sadiq Khan has been told that far-left Black Lives Matter UK rioters had verbally abused and physically attacked London’s black police officers in recent protests.
Susan Hall, leader of the Conservatives on the Greater London Authority (GLA), said at Mayor’s Question Time on Thursday that she had been informed of the attacks on black officers by Scotland Yard deputy commissioner Sir Stephen House.
Ms Hall told Mayor Khan that “black officers were attacked apparently more vociferously during the recent protests”, according to remarks reported by the London Evening Standard.
“Sir Steve House was very clear that a proportion of these attacks came from the Black Lives Matter protesters themselves,” she added.
(The communist insurgents need to foment race hatred for the revolution. So its no surprise that white communist agitators would especially target black officers for multiple gain. It may create racial hatred in otherwise perfectly well adjusted black police officers, and it may inspire them to act beyond their mandate as police so the insurgents can point at them as examples of why the police must be defunded. Remember, with the communists, “the point is never the point. The revolution is always the point.” So what looks like hypocrisy from the outside is nearly always very consistent in terms of the meta. The overarching goal of these actions. Which has nothing to do with statues or racism and everything to do with the complete destruction of rule of law, private property, individual rights, and self governance. If and when the police are ended as a thing it will not lead to anarchy despite the illusion created by anarchists with ANTIFA. It will lead to Stalin and Mao like “People’s Soldiery”, and arbitrary mass murders, arrests and enslavements will begin. It won’t be called war, because it will be against the people within whatever borders are allowed to be thought of as existing. But it will be equally or more, likely much more, devastating.)
Thank you M., Gates of Vienna, PC., Wrath of Khan, Johnny U., Tama, Hellequin GM., and MANY more. Thank you all for your continued efforts. If there is good news, it is that it is down to the crunch. Within a year we should see if not our victory over the forces of darkness that guide these times, at least solid evidence of the push-back against them.
Some years ago, I made a personal commitment to myself to not make jokes of logical extremes. Perhaps this site may not live up to that commitment as much as it should, but we resist a lot of temptations to do them.
Here is today’s reason why:
