The more I read about this event in Sacramento yesterday, the more disturbing I find it. For anyone who missed the first post, a quick re-cap. On Sunday (6/26/16) a group of basically Neo-Nazis had a planned rally in front of the California State Capitol. The event was properly scheduled and the group had obtained the necessary permits to hold their event. Offended at the idea of a White Supremacist rally, a left leaning group planned a counter protest. Short of a bunch of yelling and screaming this really should be the end of the story, but it is just the beginning.
As the rally began the liberals of the counter protest began throwing rocks, chunks of concrete and swinging sticks injuring the Skin Heads and Neo Nazis who were holding a sanctioned event. Several people were injured, many were beaten and even stabbed. There were several Sacramento news stations there to cover the event and they were also attacked in the name of free speech……well free speech depending on what view you hold. One of the reporters (as shown at the end of the KCRA video) is assaulted by the leftist protesters because they don’t want a record of their actions. (protest at state capitol turns violent)
Now I find myself in a very unsettling position, defending people for whom I have zero respect. To quote (sort of) Jake Ellwood, “I hate Sacramento Nazi’s”. However, even vile disgusting groups like Skin Heads and Nazis have the same first amendment rights as Black Lives Matter (BLM), Gay Pride, Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and La Raza. Contrary to the narrative not all Americans agree with what these groups have to say either. Like it or not everyone has an EQUAL right to free speech. Once we allow a selection of what is ok as free speech then it ceases to be FREE.
The spokes-hole for this group in Sacramento is a female who claims victory for her side because it is right, she says her group will use force to stop hate….umm what? She represents a group identified as BAM- By Any Means Necessary. I bet you would have a hard time counting all the coexist stickers on their cars. It was these “Pro-choice”, “Pro-gay”, “Pro-open border” “anti-gun” activists who perpetuated violence to stop free speech. I find myself wondering which side I dislike more at this point.
Fortunately, the media was there to set the record straight, a quick glance at the headlines should show us what happened:
• “AT LEAST 10 PEOPLE INJURED AT CALIFORNIA RALLY, AUTHORITIES SAY”- CNN
• “10 INJURED DURING WHITE NATIONALIST PROTEST IN SACRAMENTO”- THE NEW YORK TIMES
• “TRUMP SUPPORTING NEO-NAZIS STAB 5 PEOPLE AT PROTEST IN SACRAMENTO” POLITICUS USA
• “MULTIPLE PEOPLE STABBED AT NEO-NAZI RALLY IN SACRAMENTO” ZERO HEDGE
• “CALIFORNIA POLICE INVESTIGATING VIOLENT CLASH AT SACRAMENTO WHITE SUPREMACIST RALLY” RAW STORY
• “AT LEAST 10 HURT AT CHAOTIC, BLOODY NEO-NAZI RALLY AT CAPITOL” THE SACRAMENTO BEE
Wait, why do all these headlines sound different than what was reported? None of these headlines reflect the facts. They all sound like the hate mongering Nazi’s attacked peaceful protestors in an angry rage. Watch the news videos, read the local reports of what happened. The left leaning “My way or the highway” crowd, threw chunks of concrete, they damaged the state capitol building and injured people. I have no doubt the Nazi crowd, once provoked, fought back, but none of this changes the fact that the villainous White Supremacist hate filled Nazi’s were actually the victims.
EQUAL means EQUAL you spoiled little morons. This is the result of failed leadership, plain and simple. For the past 8 years, Americans have been divided, labeled and pitted against
one another all in the name of collecting votes. From welfare to immigration there has been a shameless segregation of Americans in order to continue one party rule.
California is the king of one party rule. You need look no further than this dysfunctional liberal pit of cronyism to see what does not work. The infrastructure of the California is disintegrating at an alarming rate. They built a brand new bridge in the San Francisco Bay Area, it is already in danger. It ran BILLIONS over budget and it is leaking and rusting in places where is shouldn’t. who is responsible? I have no idea because everyone is pointing fingers at someone else.
There is a new money suck of a project called the “High Speed Rail”. The idea is a bullet train to connect Northern and Southern California. The voters asked for it 2008 and to date nothing has been built but they have spent over $600 million of a projected $68 Billion…. meanwhile roads deteriorate and the homeless fill the streets. Proposition 47 has been covered many times on this page so I won’t go into that.
Slogans of acceptance litter the freeways on larger than life billboards. “Build Schools not Prisons”, “Health Happens when we Dream Together”, “Hugs not Hate”….well unless you are on the wrong side of an opinion then it is a brick to the skull for you.
How have we come to this? When did peace and love become “coexist or I will bash your fucking head in”? We are a broken society and we need to fix ourselves. We can no longer afford to stand by while politicians divide and conquer by turning us against each other. We cannot allow angry children to distort the constitution because they are uncomfortable with true equality. We cannot give our freedoms up one at a time because we are afraid.
