Political Murders

August 16th, 2017 by Patrick Henry

December 2014:

  • Two policemen are assassinated by a gunman who wanted revenge for Michael Brown.

 

July 2016:

  • A Black Lives Matter type murders 5 policemen in Dallas.
  • A black separatist murders three policeman in Louisiana.

 

June 2017: 

  • A gunman set out to kill Republican Congressmen and attempted to murder five different people.  Rep. Steve Scalise was in critical condition for some time.

 

July 2017:

  • An assassin kills a sitting policewoman because of hatred of the police.

 

August 2017:

  • A leftwing activist shot and killed his neighbor, a Republican committeeman for the county.
  • Just a few days ago, as everybody knows, at a protest where both sides showed up with clubs and shields and were using them, a racialist alt-right guy in Charlottesville ran down some alt-lefters, killing one, and was charged with homicide.  Next days neo-nazi websites were making fun of the dead girl.  Then the Washington Post ran an editorial calling for “direct action” that concluded “Start Throwing Rocks.”  Then a conservative  journalist called for the arrest on incitement charges of the editor in chief of the Washington Post.

Sometimes, I am spared the necessity of fulminating.  The facts fulminate for me.

at a protest where both sides showed up with clubs and shields and were using them

Only one side showed up that day intending violence. Only one side showed up with homemade hydrochloric acid, balloons of urine, bags of feces, socks filled with batteries and makeshift flamethrowers.

Expecting violence and coming prepared is not intending violence.

And which side is that?
When it comes down to Communists Vs Nazis, I have a real hard time taking a side, except perhaps, a side against them.

Now, I think G’s list might be incomplete. I mention this, because it would really be interesting to make a chart of these sort of things. I expect a moderately exponential increase. Of course, this could also easily become a hyper-exponential increase, the way you see with stocks sometimes.

Also, although I am sure none of us are planning to, murdering an Archduke would be really bad right now.

In the war between Communists and Nazis, the true American patriot roots for heavy casualties.
