As I’m drinking my second cup of coffee this morning, I’m finding pictures on the Interwebz of an armed couple confronting a BLM mob outside of their house. This may become a more common scene as the ongoing marxist lunacy tries to metastasize to the interior of the country.
While Rick Blaine’s advice to a couple of totalitarian thugs may no longer apply in New York, it still holds true in most of America.
It’s even true in certain parts of Maryland.
Now they’re going after statues of Theodore Roosevelt.
Yes, it was Franklin Roosevelt who locked American citizens in concentration camps because of their race. Teddy was the one who invited Booker T. Washington to dinner at the White House.
The BBC reports that protestors in England are demanding that a statue of Mohandas K. Gandhi be torn down because he publicly expressed negative opinions about blacks when he lived in South Africa over a hundred years ago. It seems that these protestors have forgotten, if they ever knew, Gandhi’s contribution to the dismantling of the British Empire, whose colonization of the undeveloped world was arguably the greatest example of white supremacy.
The Daily Wire reports that an attempt to create an “autonomous zone” in Nashville ended before it began.
In Nashville, the effort was over before it even began.
“Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee issued a warning hours before protesters are planning to take over an area outside the Capitol,” local news in Nashville reported Saturday. “Nashville autonomous zone ‘will not be tolerated,’ Lee said in a statement, citing that camping on state property is prohibited by law and it will be enforced.”
Occupying state property is a misdemeanor in Tennessee and despite organizers encouraging protesters to show up with “tents,” “food,” and other necessities, an autonomous zone never materialized.
While Nashville is a blue city, it is in a red state.
UPDATE—This is also how it’s done!
One of Isaac Newton’s important contributions to Physics is his Laws of Motion.
Law I: Every body persists in its state of being at rest or of moving uniformly straight forward, except insofar as it is compelled to change its state by force impressed.
Law II: The alteration of motion is ever proportional to the motive force impress’d; and is made in the direction of the right line in which that force is impress’d.
Law III: To every action there is always opposed an equal reaction: or the mutual actions of two bodies upon each other are always equal, and directed to contrary parts.
A rioter in Portsmouth, Virginia, ran afoul of these laws while vandalizing a monument. A statue on the monument broke off and, obeying the Laws of Motion, proceeded to strike the vandal, sending him to the hospital.
We’re also beginning to see examples of a psychosocial analog of the Third Law in reactions to leftist vandalism. For example, The Sun reports that vandals have defaced the bust of Jamaican playwright by bleaching it.
To every action there is always opposed an equal reaction …
The governors and mayors in the blue jurisdictions would do well to use their police and National Guard resources to put an end to the disturbances before citizens begin to take matters into their own hands.
Apparently, there are no means of production to be seized in Antifastan.
UPDATE—I’m informed (h/t, @PolitiBunny) that the sign in this picture may not be at CHAZ, but might be at a site in Pennsylvania. However, as reported yesterday, Antifastan is not able to feed itself and has appealed for food aid.
