Remember that episode of Gilligan’s Island then a Latin American ex-dictator washed ashore? Inasmuch as life imitates art (sorry for qualifying Gilligan’s Island as art), the California Democrats are off and running in their promise to deliver dis, dat, and de udder ting.
I’ve heard that California is becoming a de facto Third World nation. Ain’t it da troot?
Anyhow, is there anything Democrats won’t want to tax? The answer is a resounding NO.
Don’t believe me? Just check out the latest from the Republica Popular de California (bienvenidos los comunistas y miembros de La Raza).
Without fail, whenever any given government gives away more free stuff to any given tax base that simply doesn’t contribute more than they take, taxes skyrocket.
That’s what’s happening to the former Golden State.
Does it make me a bad person for laughing everytime a riot baton came down with a thud on any given Leftie rioter?
No, I didn’t think so either.
Anyhow, the comrades over at the Putin-friendly RT.com caught on video Italian cops going full BTFO on a mob of communists and anarchists hell-bent on doing what communists and anarchists do best.
Using the Leftist code word of “anti-fascists” to describe rioters, RT.com predictably fell back on the reliable MSM tactic of referring to anyone who so happens to disagree with them as “right-wing groups”.
As reported by a rather sorrowful RT.com from the Italian city of Modena;
The incident took place on Friday evening. A local far-right group called ‘Defend Modena’ organized a rally in the center of the town to protest against the Jus soli – or the right of the soil – a legal principle that allows anyone born on the territory of a state to obtain its citizenship. Italy currently does not use this principle in granting citizenship but local lawmakers in Modena have discussed the possibility of its introduction.
Footage provided by the Ruptly video new agency shows the anti-fascists throwing what look like thunder-flashes, firecrackers and smoke pellets at the police with the officers in riot gear subsequently charging into the crowd. The video also shows officers beating people lying on the street with batons and attempting to detain some of the protesters by force.
According to local media, police also used water cannon to disperse the crowd. The protesters also reportedly engaged in clashes and scuffles with police on several occasions. However, there were no reports of any serious injuries, although local media said that some people were “bruised” in the brawls and at least two people were arrested.
If you’re counting on the Durham County Sheriff Michael “Mike” Andrews (919-560-0853) or the City of Durham Chief of Police Cerelyn “C.J.” Davis (919-560-4322) to actually stand-up to the Communists or Anarchists, guess again.
As reported by Fox News, a mob took to the streets of Durham, NC in broad daylight and destroyed a memorial statue to the Tar Heel State’s Confederate veterans of a century and a half ago.
Keep in mind, the LEOs (Local Law Enforcement)
All the while, the statue located at the County Courthouse but within the boundaries of the City of Durham, was destroyed while county sheriff’s deputies and city police officers did nothing more than stand there and watch as the rule of law was completely and totally abandoned.
Sadly, Sheriff Andrews and Chief Davis have proven that words like “serve, protect, alert and vigilant” have no meanings whatsoever. They’re simply empty words completely void of honor or integrity.
Regardless if the memorial statue in question was to Confederate veterans or Malcolm X, the fact of the matter is that law enforcement officers allowed the law to be openly and flagrantly violated.
As Fox News reporter Lucia I. Suarez Sang noted; (Emphasis mine)
At no time did officers with the Durham Police Department or deputies with the Durham County Sheriff’s Office intervene as activists brought a ladder up to the statue and used a rope to pull it down, according to multiple media reports.
Reporter Sang also cited that “Criminal charges sought for protesters” who destroyed government property in spite of LEOs watching the crime as it happened.
But to make matters worse, Sheriff Andrews turned common sense on its head with his rather Orwellian quote to the press; (Emphasis mine)
He continued: “My deputies showed great restraint and respect for the constitutional rights of the group expressing their anger and disgust for recent events in our country. Racism and incivility have no place in our country or Durham.”
Other than open vandalism and destruction of public property, Sang also reported that in regards to state property in the form of memorials to Confederate soldiers – “North Carolina has a law protecting the statues. The 2015 law prevents removing such monuments on public property without permission from state officials.”
Apparently that particular law has little meaning in City of Durham or in Durham County proper. At least the world knows now how the LEO leadership in that particular city and county will react if the mob is big enough.
As far as the mob itself is concerned, little doubt in the knowledge that the openly pro-Communist and militant Marxist Workers.org was the primary power-player in the recent mob rule of Durham.
Other than openly supporting North Korea’s Kim Jong-un, Venezuela’s Maduro, and Iran’s ayatollahs, as the group notes on their official website;

It may be a case of everything old is new again. Much like during the turbulent late ’60s and early ’70s when more than just a few hard-left individuals managed to get their images splashed across television screens across the planet, much like their forefathers of almost half a century ago, today’s members and supporters of The Revolutionary Communist Party, USA are propagating as loud as they can to convince the masses that police departments across the nation are dyed-in-the-wool racists, referred to as “Pigs,” who seek to murder as many blacks and Latinos as possible.
“A lot of us are World War II vets and fathers and Purple Hearts. We’re from a generation that believes the flag over everything.” – Electrician Morty Grutman, quoted in the New York Post, May 9, 1970.
What has been largely forgotten by both the mainstream media and academia nation-wide, today marks the 44th anniversary of New York City’s pivotal “Hard Hat Riot” what began as a violent reaction from a relative handful of NYC construction workers, many of whom were World War II, Korea War and Viet-Nam War veterans, against a rather large number of anti-Vietnam War protesters. As reported by the New York Times on May 9, 1970, the Wall Street Journal on May 11, 1970, and also the Vancouver (Canada) Sun on May 20, 2970, an estimated two hundred “Hard Hats” battled roughly one thousand antiwar protesters literally in the shadows of the New York Stock Exchange.
With the hierarchy of the Serbian Orthodox Church claiming coincidence, a fresco in an Eastern European cathedral church has images of individuals that happen to bear a striking resemblance to certain infamous Communists as well as other individuals of historic significance knee-deep in the fires of Gehenna, as reported by the Associated Press via the Globe and Mail of Toronto, Canada on Feb. 5, 2014.
