More Violence From the Left, But You Won't See it in the News

Texas – -(AmmoLand.com)- As I have said before, and say again: pay attention to what the progressive socialist left does not talk about. It tells you all you need to know about these delusional, deranged individuals.

For instance, there were three tragic shootings two weekends ago in our America — El Paso Texas, Dayton, Ohio, and Chicago, Illinois. And what did you not hear the left talking about? Heavily emphasizing, yes, the shootings in Dayton and Chicago. The shooter in Dayton was one of their own, a sick, demented individual who kept hit and rape lists. That shooter was an avowed Elizabeth Warren supporter. Why no condemnation of Warren? Just like with the shooter of the GOP baseball team, an avowed leftist, Bernie Sanders supporter, no condemnation of ol’ Bernie and his rhetoric. Nope.

And, certainly, forget about the left addressing any of the shootings that regularly happen each weekend in Chicago. Well, unless . . . unless it is a case where the left can leverage the shooting to support their ideological narrative, such as a police shooting of a black male. However, when 7 blacks are killed, and 55 blacks are shot in a weekend, you will not hear a peep from the Democrat (socialist) Party, or their little street gang called Black Lives Matter.

When Antifa is out and about beating on conservatives, you hear nothing but crickets from the left. However, anyone supporting President Trump is a racist, white nationalist, and white supremacist. But, Margaret Sanger is just cool for the progressive socialist left . . . and so is murdering 20 million black babies in the womb.

But, consider the vile, vitriol of the left leveraged against our law enforcement officers. “Pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon,” “What do we want? Dead cops. When do we want it? Now!” Our border patrol agents are running “concentration camps.” Comparing our ICE officers to Nazis. Where is the condemnation of this rhetoric? Yes, you are right, this is what you will never hear from the left, nor when it manifests itself.

I am quite certain there was little to no coverage of the leftist attacks against ICE facilities in Aurora, Colorado where the US Flag was ripped down and replaced with the Mexican flag. And the Blue Lives Matter flag was defaced. We hear little to nothing about the Antifa-inspired attacks against an ICE facility in Seattle, Washington where the assailant was armed with a semi-automatic rifle and a Molotov cocktail. We never heard anything about gun control after that attack, or the GOP baseball team shooting, either. Heck, the Seattle ICE facility attacker was even praised on the progressive socialist Antifa websites. Do any leftist media outlets report on that? Or where was the call to tone down the rhetoric?

So again, the call to violence by the left manifested itself again. This time it happened in the city where a federally-elected official made his own “hit list” of supporters of President Trump and their businesses: San Antonio.

As reported by the Washington Examiner:

“Police in San Antonio arrested a man early Tuesday morning in connection with gunshots fired through the windows of an Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in the city, according to the agency.

Local law enforcement responded around 3 a.m. CT Tuesday to shots fired at the ICE field office located north of Interstate 410 near Brookhaven Drive, the FBI confirmed in a statement provided to the Washington Examiner.

“Shortly before or after, shots were also fired at a nearby building. Both buildings also house businesses completely unrelated to ICE operations. No injuries were reported. The FBI has opened an investigation into the shootings and is currently processing the crime scenes and reviewing surveillance footage,” the FBI continued.

Christopher Combs, special agent in charge of the FBI’s San Antonio operations, called the shootings “cowardly, brazen, violent acts.” “An attempt to attack federal employees is a federal crime with serious consequences. The FBI will relentlessly pursue every lead in this case to find the individuals who are responsible,” Combs said in a statement.”

So, I have a question: is it a federal crime to incite such cowardly, brazen, and violent acts? We need to start being honest here: President Trump had nothing to do with the crazed, maniacal actions of the El Paso shooter. However, there are those on the progressive socialist left who are encouraging violence against our law enforcement agencies, especially Border Patrol and ICE.

Consider what has been happening in NYC with buckets of water being thrown, tossed, on NYPD officers. Where is the strong condemnation from the mayor of NYC, Bill de Blasio?

Yes, you easily learn who the left is based upon what they are not talking about. When you allow buckets of water to douse our officers, then respect drops and next thing you know, you have officers being shot at doing their normal duties, such as what happened in Philadelphia. Six officers were shot, and you ain’t gonna hear any unrighteous indignation from these leftists. Well, stupidly, some of them were ranting about gun control. I can assure you that the shooter, in this case, did not legally undergo a background check in order to acquire his AR-15. I guess that universal background check thing doesn’t mean too much to a criminal, drug dealer, miscreant. They do not read laws.

Someone does have the cajones to address the issue of responsibility for leftist violence.

“This attack at the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Field Office in San Antonio is completely without justification,” ICE Enforcement Removal Operations San Antonio Field Office Director Daniel Bible said in a statement.

Bible went on to blame “politicians, media outlets and activist groups” for “recklessly” sharing information and “misinformation” to the public.

“This disturbing public discourse shrouds our critical law enforcement function and unnecessarily puts our officers’ safety at risk,” said Bible. “They have a 24/7 command center in there so there were people in the building,” a former senior ICE official who spoke with an official based at the office told the Washington Examiner.”

Let’s stop dismissing and giving these progressive socialists a “get out of jail free card.” These are the real purveyors of incitement to violence, starting with the rant from Maxine Waters, and look at what ensued: political opponents being verbally assaulted in public places such as restaurants.

Ponder these, just as a reminder:

  • Last month, protesters with Never Again blocked the entrances to ICE’s national headquarters in Washington, D.C.
    In mid-July, police in Tacoma, Washington, fatally shot an armed man after they said he hurled Molotov cocktails at an ICE building.
  • On July 12, a group of protesters in Aurora, Colorado, took down an American flag and two other flags from outside an ICE facility and raised a Mexican flag and a defaced “thin blue line” flag, which commemorates law enforcement.
  • Emily Covington, a spokeswoman for the GEO Group, a private prison company that manages some of the agency’s holding facilities, said its Boca Raton, Florida, headquarters was protested at earlier this week as a result of “misinformation about the services the company provides and by escalating rhetoric from activists.”

Who takes responsibility for violence from the progressive socialist left? Never forget, “when tolerance becomes a one-way street, it leads to cultural suicide.” That’s a quote from yours truly.

    Margret Sanger the founder of Planned Parenthood was a racist who believed in eugenics. Rarely does anyone, especially anyone on the left reports this. Her disregard for the lives of all unborn black, white, etc. is the legacy of Planned Parenthood, which supports gender selected abortions, infanticide, and the selling of fetal body parts. Planned Parenthood supporters CHEERED when Fredo’s brother Andrew Como signed a late term (infanticide) bill in New York–CHEERED, they no longer even give lip service that abortion may be a necessary evil or “safe, legal, and rare.” They not only support violence against the unborn.

    Those who join and fight for the left have no clue that they will receive absolutely no good thing. If they win, those they are fighting for will immediately forget they even exist.
    Poverty, is “not” something any intelligent person would fight for.

    If left unchecked, as they were in Portland, these groups will become more emboldened and more violent. If they get brave enough to arm up we will see some mass shootings that will make the current crop pale by comparison.

    Chaos is control. The more chaos these liberal controlled cities and states allow the more likely they can pass laws to strip law abiding citizens of their rights. The laws they make have no affect on the criminals.

    Quite true! You will also see massive amounts of journalists cover for the leftist oriented shootings, placing the blame solely on the shoulders of the so-called alt-right, extreme right, and everybody else who is to the right of Stalin and Trotsky!

    A shame the police are told to stand down by corrupt officials. Too bad they don’t use the Belgian Manilois dogs to take down antifa cowards

    Fancy that ! It wasn’t those horrible White Nationalists that caused the problems at all ! The White Nationalists participation was the reason Stewart Rhodes gave for cancelling the Oath Keepers participation at the event ! It was Antifa that caused all the problems,but Rhodes wasn’t concerned about those scumbags at all !

    @IB, Come on Bob, his title is not Mr! LTC West’s title is Lieutenant Colonel. Lieutenant Colonel is properly abbreviated LTC. Congressed authorizes retired officers to continue to use their title… Bob.
