Andy Ngo by Richard Fernandez (An excerpt)

Perhaps the magnitude of Hillary’s 2016 loss is only now becoming apparent. Clinton didn’t just lose the White House, she also lost the Democratic center to the radical ornaments. The diminution of Brooks, Stevens, Kristof, and even Biden are the consequence of that defeat. The radicals who once served the useful purpose of putting fear into the other side are taking center stage. It’s not surprising that the French Terror began with the purge of the moderates and the urgency of virtue. As Robespierre put it, virtuous men have no choice but to employ any means necessary:

If the basis of popular government in peacetime is virtue, the basis of popular government during a revolution is both virtue and terror; virtue, without which terror is baneful; terror, without which virtue is powerless. Terror is nothing more than speedy, severe and inflexible justice; it is thus an emanation of virtue; it is less a principle in itself, than a consequence of the general principle of democracy, applied to the most pressing needs of the patrie.

The Thing is older than one would think. And more voracious. The intellectual Old Bolsheviks thought their illustrious records would protect them from the ruffian Stalin. Bukharin who was eventually executed by Stalin once said “Koba, you used to be grateful for the support of your Bolshevik comrades.” “Gratitude is a dog’s disease,” Stalin shot back.

It won’t stop at Andy Ngo. There is no safety from It.

    A couple of weeks ago on his blog Z Man wrote:

    “Antifa are allowed to roam the streets causing mayhem. In fact, it is fair to say they are the unofficial secret police of the global managerial state. They are allowed to commit crimes, intimidate people and harass businesses. The government could shut them down tomorrow, but they don’t, which is an endorsement of Antifa by the state. That’s where things are in the West. We’re ruled by gangsters that employ thugs.”

    Another choice dictum from Robespierre that may sound familiar to anyone familiar with today’s leftists: “To punish the oppressors of humanity is clemency; to forgive them is barbarity.”

    It may be worth keeping in mind that Robespierre, his younger brother, and the other leftists (Montagnards) on the Comité de salut public came to a spectacularly bad end in July 1794. A number of witnesses reported that Robespierre let out an agonized scream when he went under the guillotine; the executioner’s son said that he “roared like a tiger.” The crowd surrounding the scaffold cheered and applauded for at least ten minutes. The Antifa LARPers should be careful what they wish for.

    It cannot be said often enough: for all the talk about the increase in real political violence (nearly) all of it is committed by the Left. They can blame Trump and the Conservatives but the falsity of that is well documented.

  • John the River July 1, 2019, 4:45 AM

    The old Black Panthers, Weathermen, that Patty Hearst gang; all were taken down or eliminated by the government used all the State and Federal resources at hand when they started using violence. Of course in those days the FBI wasn’t one of them and a revolutionary cabal of Globalists.
    Antifa and what comes next are either going to win, or they are going to be destroyed. They are not going to just go away, even if they become ‘inconvenient’ for their handlers.

    Incidentally, the “quick setting cement” being used last week by Antifa can cause chemical burns on skin. In the eyes it can cause blindness. So a new catchphrase for the era we are in “It’s better to be tried by twelve than be lead around for the rest of your life by a guide dog.”

    “Stalin shot back”

    Perhaps Andy Ngo should have also. I am praying it doesn’t come to that eventually, but have little faith these days that it won’t, if those arseholes don’t take it back a few notches. And they have precious little motivation to do so, seemingly a wholly owned subsidiary of the Portland gubmint with authorized distributors coming soon to a town near you, so……..

    This is one of those stories that just sparks a cold rage in me. These fuckers need to bleed. They need a dose of ultraviolence so strong that it’ll leave every one of them who survives whimpering in their diapers with PTSD for the rest of their toxic useless lives. Fuck them to hell.

    Study the French Revolution.

    The good people are “good” until they are almost wiped out. Then, finally, the good become bad, very bad. And I agree, it is coming to a town near you. The Left has never had as much power as is currently in their possession.

    antifa is nuttin more than a bunch of cowards who wear cartoon masks to cover their identity. have you ever noticed that when one of them gets uncovered they are sporting a beard and mustache to further hide their faces. have you ever noticed that when a group of military veterans show up they run like sissys. cowards the lot they are.

  • Casey Klahn July 1, 2019, 9:01 AM

    Holy spit, I just wrote about the same thing in the above post!

    First, the communist state must disabuse itself of any group or person powerful enough to oppose it. If a group can topple a state, it is perforce now an enemy of the new state. Also up for the chop: teachers, photographers, poets, artists, lawyers, politicians, doctors.

  • ghostsniper July 1, 2019, 9:02 AM

    Shoot one in the face with a flare gun and watch the sissies lay rubbah.
    They are all mouth and no ass. Bet on it.
    The summer’s heatin’ up and so are the emotions, on both sides, something’s going to snap.

    Think 3 steps ahead. A communist steps over the line and a patriot takes him out on the spot. Now what? The patriot gets arrested and all the other patriots boil. The communists are inspired. They step over the line in mass, 500 hundred of them in one place. The patriots meet them head on. Some pats are killed a lot more comms are killed. The crazy comms are inspired further. They attack the grid, in 100 degree temps. Now they’ve went too far. Innocent people are suffering. The utilities are fearful to do repairs. Fearful for their lives. Their power is out too and their families are suffering. They don’t show for work. The grid is still down. The governor is forced to call in the national guard, otherwise full scale civil war will ensue. In the absence of gov’t restoring the grid wealthy conservative associations will assemble teams to get the grid back online. Communists will be killed on sight, at distance.

    What you cannot lose sight of is the fact that THEY are wrong. The american communists. They will always be wrong because their underlying premise is wrong. I have no idea what their retarded mindset is but if they think they can wear everybody down with their incessant whining and silly shenanigans they will eventually find that grown adults are only willing to put up with so much. Take out a fairly decent size part of the grid and that pot will boil over instantly and that is a place the american communists will regret dragging everybody into. This will put everybody else on notice, that the hour of fun and games at the expense of everybody else is over. The very next person to employ the milkshake method will pay with his life instantly and the remains will be unidentifiable except at the DNA level.

  • Vanderleun July 1, 2019, 9:12 AM

    PRETTY MUCH spot on. At distance is the element here.

  • Veronica July 1, 2019, 1:19 PM

    They want mayhem because they control the media and therefore the message to the uninformed masses. Mayhem is their way to stop Trump’s reelection. We need every man and every vote alive and strong on our side.

  • Snakepit Kansas July 1, 2019, 5:26 PM

    Shoot the lead element in the gut. Let him drop in the street an wail. Don’t riot in my neighborhood. Fair warning.

  • Casey Klahn July 1, 2019, 10:37 PM

    If Andy ever troubles himself to go back onto the mean streets of Portland, my suggestion is that he wear a helmet. A riot face shield is another good idea.

    Better yet, it is past time to play Antifa’s games on the streets. The real seat of power is the Portland mayor and the cops who facilitate this horseshit. An intrepid reporter would put himself directly in front of the chief of police, and ask questions about police ops during Antifa actions.

    When you read the news, the right side are “agitators” and political, but the Antifa are locals; innocent and unorganized. The mayor, the cops, and the media. Don’t be an ass and walk into that ambush.

  • Montefrío July 2, 2019, 10:00 AM

    Argentina went through this phase in the 70s and it’s worth remembering what happened to many of its own “anti-fa” types. Then again, those who survived imprisonment and in some cases torture now collect government pensions for their crimes, were in the government during the Kirchner years and may yet be again. They’re still out there, still trying to stir up trouble. Something similar could happen in the USA, and in some ways, may be near on the horizon.

    These folks arrive in buses,which park in a area close enough to walk to. Their Provided lunch, given the tools they require. Have attorneys in position to represent them, instantly if needed. Their bails paid, and their paid on average 20/25.00 an hour. They also coordinate with media personnel for their action shots.

    They assemble in what they believe is a safe area. Any good guerrilla fighter understand, the weak link. Which is their logistics, and transportation. Fire bombs, shot bus tires, build confusion in their safe zones.

    What I’m saying is, their are no rules, killing their transportation, kills their ability to move, to be safe. Use their tactics on them, hit, move, hide in plain sight.

    A 10/22 suppressed with a brass catcher, shooting sub sonic Rounds is a very effective tool.
