David Bailey. His heroics kept this from being a massacre.
Wednesday, 14 June (late edition):
The first shots in any war are usually small.
For every sinking of the Maine, or flying 757's into skyscrapers, there is also the shooting of a mid level nobody called the Archduke
Or a second, and really foggy, attack in the Gulf of Tonkin. Civil disorders are similar in that regard. Usually bunched up around assassinations. Lincoln was killed because of civil strife, and so too, was Martin Luther King.
Sure, although he did lead the then known universe in enemies. McKinley was a fluke; his assassination begets Teddy Roosevelt and the first breath of the modern progressive movement.
They were a different lot back then, Teddy, and his admirers like
John Muir and William Jennings Bryant were of the illuminist bent but were fairly devout Christians, as was Woodrow Wilson.
That strain of progressivism, which coupled environmental awareness, social responsibility but within the rubrick of full freedoms,
is virtually extinct. It has been replaced with something intensely more focused.
It isn't the classic progressive thought of Rousseau and the French enlightenment; which of course turned into bloody civil war and the Left Bank. All of which had one
The New Progressives, if you will, are really a total contradiction to the term. They're actually a regressive movement; looking to enslave rather than liberate. Only in serfdom can the will of the
Few be realized. You know who the 'few' are.
They're the ones who hate Donald Trump with the most zest and vigor. This movement, which is really crypto-fascism more than anything even remotely 'progressive', wants complete statism.
guidance of a World Government'. It used to be called 'ZOG', as in "Zionist Organized Government' but that was before the Zionists and the secular Jews split. That's your Israel/Palestine issue now.
No, it's a techno empire based on consolidation of
the world's assets and then aimed at life extension (literal immortality) space travel and the becoming of the human god.
That this will enslave, starve and ultimately cull a huge percentage of the world's population is, as they used to say 'tough titties'.
They have no compassion about it.
None. It was the playwright George Bernard Shaw who thought people should be required to, on regular occasion, prove just WHY they should be allowed to live. Now, he wasn't totally without feeling.
playing classical music as people were being gassed a 'splendid idea'. So, too did Nazi SS leader Heinrich Himmler, who thought having the very people being gassed play the instruments a particularly nice touch.
The lesson here? The only difference
between the modern progressive (global/statist) enterprise and the Nazis is one of style. They want the same net result.
Anyone who disagrees, as one of their more unhinged adherents, Elizabeth Warren, says, should just 'disappear'.
Make no mistake about just who these people are. They cannot be reasoned with; just surrendered to. Why do you think they find a kinship in radical Islam? Why not some peaceful Buddhists or Hindus?
Then there's today's event
If it weren't for a lucky break that House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was there the 2 person Capital Police detail wouldn't have been present. And the shooter, a deranged left wing whack job with chronic case of little man's disease and
a chip the size of Montana on his shoulder would have had the massacre he planned.
He had scoped out the ballpark. Fenced in, one way out and in, he was actually herding the congressmen into a killzone. Thanks to the two cops, armed with
only their 9mm handguns took this no good, fllthy piece of pond scum out.
They're heroes. But the fact remains that this was a dedicated, and deliberate attack meant to kill people someone disagreed with politically.

Maddow every night.
As this site has been saying all along, this is a religion to these people and they'll never accept disbelievers in their midst. Never.
Reeducation camps the only other alternative, and they usually lie next
to a gas chamber. Now, it's the distinct opinion of this site that these people are LOSERS. They always lose.
The Nazis lost, as did the communists and fascists last we checked. Freedom always triumphs. It just sometimes gets derailed, and now it's
time to get it back on track...
