A recent article at the Fabius Maximus website examines recent left-instigated violence in Charlottesville, Evergreen College, Berkeley, Portland OR, and several other locations. The common thread linking these violent episodes of political violence is a vicious leftist intent to deny free speech to anyone who has different beliefs than themselves.
Despite Media Smoke, It is Not About Fighting Nazis
The masked instigators of violence began acting up during the US presidential campaign of 2016. The leftist violence intensified when US President Trump was inaugurated, and has flared up again whenever centrists, libertarians, and conservatives have attempted to give legally permitted public speeches on campuses or in public areas.
According to the masked club-wielding rioters of the left, everyone who is not one of them is by definition a Nazi. And they are not completely sure about each other. 😉 Who are they? Some are frustrated Bernie Sanders supporters. Some are paid astroturfed protestors. Some are mentally ill, or are so steeped in self-righteousness that they may as well be insane. And some are just looking for some excitement.
Not Paradoxically, the Leftists ARE Now the Nazis
Here is a good example of the ilk:
“You failed us,” she continued. “All of you who stood by when we were like, ‘Please, please follow us. The Nazis are that way!’ F**k your f***ing Constitution, f**k your liberal Bernie bullshit. We are here to fight Nazis.”
The woman then declared that if progressives weren’t there to “throw down” with Antifa, then they are “masturbating in the streets.” Makes sense, no?
But that wasn’t the woman’s only crazed outburst. In another video, she is yelling and taunting the non-violent protesters with, “You just want to feel good! F*** you liberals, pink pussy hat bullshit!” __ Source
There is Reason to Believe that Leftists Want to Provoke Ongoing Deadly Violence
Is the Left Marching the Nation to Civil War?
The left’s Marxist intolerance and premeditated violence for the last year and a half has been directed towards the supporters of first candidate Trump and now the President. There have been hundreds and hundreds of left-wing assaults against Trump supporters of all races, genders and creeds… At Berkeley, the Antifa destroyed property and caused millions of dollars worth of damage because they were unhappy that the right wing blogger Milo Yiannopoulos was going to speak there.
… The left claims to be tolerant, and so sensitive to everyone’s feelings and likes to throw around big words like diversity and inclusion, but in actuality, they are tyrants who would have found a home in Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union.
Anyone the left disagrees with must be silenced and usually by force. Anyone the left feels has aggrieved them, must be silenced and usually by force. Any law the left dislikes must be ignored. Any sentence to the US constitution the left despises must be twisted. Any history the left hates must be erased and disappeared permanently from the minds, museums and books of America. __ A Leftist Instigated Civil War
As we have pointed out before, large scale political violence is the fondest wish of leftists in media, university, government, and in other deeply corrupted institutions. Whatever happens will be selectively filtered, smokescreened, framed, and biased by the media. Universities, already the seat of leftist deep-rot, would become burning sewers of total left dominance and violent hate. Knee-jerk reactions by governments would only serve those in high places who long to grab more power for themselves and fellow travelers.
The “simple solution” proposed by the Editor of the Fabius Maximus blog, is to let people express their viewpoints as long as they do so peacefully and lawfully — and to have police and other law enforcement actively keep opposing groups separated. Good advice.
Is it enough to stop the leftist slide to total cultural and societal corruption and rot? How did we get to this point in the first place? The intriguing video below contains many useful clues:
The end result of the post-modernist movement is a “modern ideology of the left,” which is totally intolerant, well financed by leftist billionaires and multi-millionaires, and quite willing to send in the cannon fodder of young blacks, dropouts, and college students to stir up violent coup and counter-coup. This vile ideology has thoroughly infiltrated media organisations, universities and lower education, governments at all levels, many corporations — including the tech industry — and popular culture at large.
Students are being taught by these postmodern professors that there is no truth, that science and empirical facts are tools of oppression by the white patriarchy, and that nearly everyone in America is racist and bigoted, including their own professors, most of whom are liberals or progressives devoted to fighting these social ills.
… If you teach students to be warriors against all power asymmetries, don’t be surprised when they turn on their professors and administrators. This is what happens when you separate facts from values, empiricism from morality, science from the humanities. __ Scientific American
In other words, the rot simply goes too deep in society’s institutions — and is too well financed by ultra-wealthy ideologues — to expect it to die off by the utilisation of simple constitutional and common-sense means. Even more people are certain to be hurt and killed as a result of this modern leftist nazism and its determination to instigate deadly violence.
Beyond Common Sense and Constitutionalism, What Can be Done?
It is best to avoid violence whenever possible. If a situation seems likely to degenerate into a violent melee, the best course of action is to walk away. If your exit is blocked by violent extremists, it is best to utilise advanced skills of evasion and the absolute minimum of violence necessary to make your exit.
On both the left and the right, society is full of clueless naifs who have never worked an honest day, nor do they have any useful or practical skills or competencies. Losers flock to mass movements of violence, as was seen in the French and Russian revolutions, and in the Nazi ascendancy. The modern leftist and Islamist movements of violence provide further examples.
If one wants to move the battleground onto less violent and more rational terrain, some innovative strategies and tactics may be called for. Think about it.
Hope for the best. Prepare for the worst. It is never too late for a Dangerous Childhood.

These days, leftist propaganda is the miasma within which we are forced to live and breathe. One must be much more than ordinary to rise above it. Unfortunately, not having had Dangerous Childhoods, most youth these days are far too ordinary and mediocre.
