Quickies: I’m Not The Only Prophet Of Doom

     Dystopic lays it down with beautiful concision:

     A Liberal acquaintance of mine accidentally hit upon a fundamental truth. He linked to this little gem from Salon: Baltimore’s violent protesters are right: Smashing police cars is a legitimate political strategy. Now, before you think that I’ve gone off my rocker and moved over to the Progressive side, consider that I am not commenting on the morality or rightness involved in the act. Francis has completely demolished any pretense of morality or uprightness on the part of the protesters, or their political masters. He has done a more thorough job of denouncing that than I can do.

     No, what I’m saying is that this is a carefully calculated political act of violence on the part of the Left. There is another word that meets the definition of “political act of violence,” and that is WAR.

     Salon’s Leftist writers have inadvertently revealed the truth: America is at war with itself. The Civil War has already begun, but like the quiet lull after the first shots across Fort Sumter, this is only the opening act, and many people on both sides still cling to the delusional notion that things can go back to the way they were, that peaceful compromise is still possible. This woman, admirably berating her foolish son out in the open for participating in the riots, might think so. But individuals like her are few and far between in the current unpleasantness.

     I’ve written several times that we’re engaged in a race war. It’s not inconsistent that the “larger Left” should find this congenial to its own designs. Their agenda has always been destruction. For that reason, Salon has done the Right a large favor by pulling off the covers and revealing the conflict for what it is.

     The Left’s nodding editorialists will soon regret their candor.
