CNN's Ground-Troop Allies, Antifa, Arrested for Beating, Macing, and Robbing Marine Reservists

CNN is the official air cover for Antifa attacks on Marines.

Here are some other recent Antifa attacks for CNN to provide cover for:

Antifa accused a Jewish man of being a Nazi and beat the shit out of him.

in Tucson, a Trump supporter was attacked from behind. The man the stomped on to his ankle, breaking it in four places. A group of people dragged the attacker off.

The attacker was arrested for assault.

The victim wasn't at a protest. He was just walking down the street -- wearing a MAGA hat.

I guess that means he's a Nazi and that it's legal for CNN's Ground Troops to attack him on sight.

Weird how attacks on right-wingers end in arrests, as if they really happened, whereas "hate crimes" against left-wingers usually do not end in any arrests or even a police report, as if they did not really happen.

Tim Pool notes this column, which is worth reading.

We hear a lot about incivility these days, but that word is just too tepid to convey what’s really happening. Civility means politeness, courtesy, deference; it's opening the door and saying "after you." Incivility is the opposite: rudeness, boorishness, cutting in line.

But today's incivility -- intrusion, confrontation and intimidation -- is on a whole new plane.

For months we’ve seen videos of Trump administration officials and notable conservatives -- Sarah Sanders, DHS Secretary Nielsen, Sens. Mitch McConnell and Ted Cruz and others -- in public places with their families, being screamed at, taunted, hounded. We watched angry "protesters" roaming the halls of the Senate chambers during the Kavanaugh hearings, cornering and hectoring Republican Senators.


These are precisely the actions urged by Rep. Maxine Waters: "if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they're not welcome anymore, anywhere."

Think about that for a moment: "not welcome anymore, anywhere."

Rep. Waters is prone to saying loony things, so her words were not particularly shocking. What is shocking is the deafening silence from the leadership in the Democratic Party. Some in fact are doubling down. Per Hillary Clinton, "civility can start again when the Democrats take the House or the Senate".

Evidently not. Last Thursday, just two days after the midterms, an angry mob showed up at conservative TV commentator Tucker Carlson’s house, shouting "racist scumbag" and "we know where you sleep” as Carlson’s wife (he was not at home) hid in the pantry, frantically dialing 9-1-1.

The Carlson episode has garnered plenty of attention, with responsible voices on both left and right demanding that this kind of behavior cease. But will it? It seems like it’s picking up steam.

Tim Pool notes that Hillary Clinton said we could return to civility after Democrats won the House.

Well, they did win the House -- and yet six days later, a Trump supporter was attacked and had his ankle broken in four places.

Did CNN cover this? Of course not. And when CNN covers this sort of thing, they do so to Support Antifa's Violence.

When the right wing gets violently radicalized, and people start visiting this sort of thing on the left, I hope they're not thinking that people like me are going to condemn the violence and try to calm things down.

I'm going to say exactly what Chris Cuomo said: Not all punches are equal, dude.

I'm going to say exactly what Don Lemon said: These are just upset people, making their emotions felt.

Or maybe I'll just say this.

CNN personnel present themselves as moral paragons whose utterances upon the morality of some punches or some upset people expressing themselves are beyond all doubt, so virtuous are CNN personnel.

Therefore, it seems to me, we would all be behaving in the most moral manner possible to treat attacks on the left as CNN personnel treat attacks on the right -- as excusable bouts of enthusiasm and zeal for the betterment of America.
