    Very euro style breakfast!

    I’m still here gang, and soon I’ll have some opinions, thoughts, and links on subjects ranging from beer to tanks and back to beer again.

    Feeling better today but my treatment for anemia is a bish. Will report as able.

      The number one cure is to go to a large urban area and start punching loud mouth, tatted up communists in the face with both hands. Apparently you will be permanently cured after you’ve knocked the 10th one out. If you don’t come back here and post video reference the cure won’t take.

    Anyone know where I can get a link to Gerard’s piece about his experience at the Berkeley riots? I remember it was quite graphic and apropos with the bullshit transpiring now.

        Not that one. He had an article about the day the shooting started. Or it might have been when the Oakland police came in and started giving everyone hickory shampoos. Whichever one it was (both?), Gerard left just before the festivities began, and considered himself darn lucky, and did not want to be that close ever again.

        • ghostsniper April 29, 2024, 5:58 PM

          Not recalling that specific article the best I can offer is the search box over in the right column.

    Ghost and Mr Fleming,compliments to you for your choices of links to Gerard’s Berkeley experiences.
    The commentary in both is equally interesting.

    What you do and what you see,
    Lover can you talk to me?”

    Just checking in here because I miss Gerard. *sigh*

    Interesting. There’s plethoras of decentralized organizations of commie rent-a-mobs, with a permanent overwatch of logistics and financial providers. There’s a collection of folks who don’t seem to have regular jobs or careers, but are always down for and show up for the “revolution”, to push it forward. Hoping against hope that this time, they will finally win through and give the normies their comeuppance, while they become the overlords, finally the winners of history. And now the black blocs and pantifas have shown up, to take over and take charge from the useless idiots who started this cycle of college unrest. It’s battlespace prep for the summer and fall festivities. Time to get the band back together.

    The overwatch pays these revolutionary regulars, if I’m to believe the reports up to $3000/month. Must be all tax free, cash-only. Somewhere, somebody is withdrawing large wads of cash and passing it around. But now they have to watch out for the $600/transaction IRS reporting limit.

    The logistics folks bought scads of tents in Hamas colors, 3 and 4-person tents. Those tents are new, $200 and up, they don’t have the fold and wrinkles of typical family and backpacking tents that spend their years slumbering in the closets rolled up and stuffed. It looks like it took about a month for the organizers to catch up to the early protestors. They’ve got local operatives/stringers in every big city. There’s always a couple of bullhorners to get the mob moving in a single direction. Somebody put in a big order for those stupid scarves.

    The normies have numbers by far, but they don’t have any organization. I guess the theory is that you don’t need numbers if you have a committed and organized revolutionary vanguard to steamroll the normies.

    I remember back in the day, even as just a wee lad, reading how TPTB were always blaming the 60’s unrest on “outside agitators”. Those Democrat/KKK southern mayors/police chiefs were always blaming the northerners coming down to Dixie to march with King. Then in the north and everywhere, it was “communist agitators” sneaking onto college campuses to rile up the students against the war in Vietnam, to turn peaceful protests violent. And some of the outsiders went pro, Abbie, Tom, Bill, Bernardine and all their ilk.

    Yeah, I’ve now read the police chiefs and college presidents complaining about outside agitators. It’s happening again. No matter what, though, these outsiders will never suffer any lasting consequences for their actions, this time they are protected by TPTB.

    There does seem to be one difference. There’s a lot more womanly participation and leadership. It’s sorta funny listening to all the shrieking woman voices, completely ineffectual in their lies and screams as the cops gently cart them away. These women are not very good at lying, they have an underlying belief that their words and screams are sufficient to create reality. But when the Jewish-aligned have to be denied entrance to university, or the citizen journalists have to be prevented from filming, then the menacing men come to the fore. If this keeps up, the pantifas are going to bring out the pepper spray, lasers, and fireworks, batons, shields, and stand up their C&C cadres when things get spicy.

    It’s a heck of an idea, synthesized in the mid-1800’s from the antitheses of the Enlightenment and Romantics. Utopia is just a revolution away. Filthy commie scum are always with us, always waiting and planning to seize the opportunity for revolution, where they win and we are delivered to our deserved punishments. The revolutionaries are not evil you see, they are just in a hurry, when things go wrong they seem to be bad, but they’re just souls whose intentions are good, Oh Lord, please don’t let them be misunderstood.

      Good write, John. You can’t be for communism if you are educated in how it works, so once again we see how the public education and academia coalitions in the US works. Ship ALL of them to a communist country and within 30 days they’ll come screaming back, or be killed in place.

      You should write more John, you’re the closest thing to Gerard we have.
      Do a daily topic (Mon-Wed-Fri) and the rest of us can chime in.

      Hell, the college presidents are the schwerpunkt in this mess. Depose the ones who’ve allowed day 2 of any riot on their campus.

      I’ve been on Twitter this morn, and had to block a couple of users who’ve posted vids of SWAT Staters and said they were national guard. The NG is the next echelon after the state patrol, but no one relishes the thought of seeing that on campuses. Sill, if it’s needed then so be it.

      Here’s another thing I saw this morn. UCLA counter rioters look like LARPers to me. They look like the feds who dress up like naughtzees. When the demand for political violence exceeds the supply, you need to make up your own conflagration on both sides. I saw wall them off and let them go at it. What’s a good beer to drink for that spectacle?

      Today being May 1st, I expect to see worse and more rioting.

    DH and I have been re-watching “Band of Brothers” again. When we turn it off at the end of the day, we just sit there stunned–knowing we do not have even one generation like this coming up behind us. Not one. Coming up immediately behind us was the Baby boomer/hippie crowd building the pathway for those who would come. After them came the “greed is good” crowd gifting us with the totally self- serving generation of confused weaklings. At the same time the young socialists–daughters of the hippie crowd began training up their female “leaders” to destroy any vestige of civil structure. The damage they have done is enormous: churches–gone, schools–gone, family–gone, one man one vote–gone. Citizens only vote–gone. Coming up now we have the bad boys in black who are the grandchildren of “leaders” fulfilling the mandate handed out at every college graduation: “be an agent of change”, i.e. tear down this country.
    Funny thing–all of these great beautiful “agents of change” have birthed and delivered to us a generation of young men who “won’t fight”, “can’t fight”, “don’t know how to fight”. Just like the millions of obedient Chinese men. Quite simply we do not have what it takes–we are no longer a Band of Brothers (and sisters).
