Sorry, Dr. Krauthammer,
the problem is on the left

There are few political commentators that come up to the level of Dr. Charles Krauthammer, but yesterday he managed to say something very intelligent, reasonable, superficially correct, yet wrong-headed. In his appearance on Special Report yesterday, he blamed multiple factors that involve both parties for the horrendous violence enacted on a baseball practice field (snip)There is something unique in the current era, as far as my historical knowledge goes.

No matter what the pundits say or think, most Americans are not fools- not even many anti-Trumpers. They know where the hate and violence is coming from and why. The unbalanced left may cheer all the hate speech, violence and chaos caused by the democrats and the disgusting media, but they know too.

I guess it has always been that politicians and the media, in their Ivory Towers, think that most Americans are stupid. Based on what I see happening, it is truly the opposite.

"An important percentage of the public has embraced politics as their religion."
That is the root of the problem! It is why people refuse to analyze, or include new information into their decision making process. They were born a democrat. They will support their team, even when some of their players do very wrong things. It is their religion.

I once really liked Dr. K. I always sought his opinions in written media and paid particularly close attention when he spoke on Fox or where ever he was offering his bits of wisdom. But, lately, ever since President trump ascended to become the Republican candidate for the Presidency, he has turned into something quite the opposite of what he once was.

I´ve watched and mostly enjoyed Dr. K over the years; he often makes interesting points and develops arguments in a logical way. However, he can be blind or obtuse regarding certain basic perceptions, such as the intent and methods of the Left.

The left encourages, condones, carries out and cheers acts of violence against us. They know that they always get away with it. Their leaders and the media cheer them, look the other way and/or blame us.

All we are doing is planning and anticipating when, where, how hard and how lethally we´re going to hit back.

Like many previous posters, Dr. k´s comments were the highlight of the news for me and I often state he was the smartest observer of the political scene on TV. Now, I don´t bother to watch him (or FOX news, sadly) because like most anti-Trumpers he refuses to admit he might have been hasty in his judgement. Are you reading, Jonah? There´s nothing more pathetic than seeing someone, once highly respected, implode before our eyes because of stubbornness to change their views....George Wills, AB Stoddard, Jonah Goldberg, etc.

There is an infrastructure on the Left, funded by Soros satellite groups, Media Matters, BLM, the remnant of what was once ACORN, and who knows how many other actively subversive groups that are paid for deliberate acts of hooliganism, vandalism, and outright physical assault on political opponents. On the Right there isn´t a single sane entity calling for violence against political opponents on the Left. Left against Right political acts of violence number in the thousands since Obama´s ascendancy; Right against Left acts of violence are in single digits. There is no equivalence.

Dr. Krauthammer, a man I have long admired even despite some disappointment with his advanced case of Beltwayitis, is tilting too far toward tolerance of evil, or, alternately, of ascribing it in general to an entire philosophical class, blameless people who must be lied about constantly, shamelessly.

Dr K´s and George Will´s professed atheism is, I believe, at the bottom of their apostasy. Intellectual idolatry is a dangerous pursuit. Smart people are predisposed to be attracted to it, and to be repelled by faith in the Almighty, unseen by those whose intellectualism is their peculiar god.

Over the years I have always liked the doctor, Krauthammer, but I have come to the conclusion that he is now out of his political depth. His cut his teeth on anesthetized political journalism, a product of traditional political times. When one party refuses to enforce the law and descends to the level of declaring the other party to be racist, bigots and misogynists, the political push back going to be dramatic and overwhelming. TRUMP’s leadership style is the only effective response to the reckless cultural aggression of liberal Democrats and their media cohorts.

There is a simple solution to much of the hatefulness on the internet, F/B, Twits, etc.

Eliminate the anonymity. Allow, with the proper legal sanctions or required documentation stating why the unmasking is needed, the publication of a commenter´s name & address.

If people knew they could lose everything by running their mouth, it would all stop. If there were consequences, bad consequences, it would all stop.

But there is a simple rule that I taught my sons: if you wouldn´t say something to a person face-to-face, don´t post it on the net. That is simply an extension of the rule: if you wouldn´t say something in front of your Grandmother, it doesn´t need to be said.

I´m done with Krauthammer who is now busy playing both sides of the street and sounding more like George Will (his best friend and alter ego) on a daily basis. Where he once brought credibility to the Baier news show "now defunct" panels, that´s no longer true. Now we see him, and appropriately so, seated with Juan Williams, Julie Pace (AP and officially surviving without a single intact brain cell—a zero contributor without fail), the just plain mean and shape shifting leftie AB Stoddard, Steve Hayes who succeeded Bill the sellout Kristol, Charles Lane...and all the other old phonies they can scrape up to do their new version of "See Fox morph left..more at 50." Fox is on the skids and all the new sets, et al, won´t cut it. If proof is needed, tune in to the new Specialists show just before Bret Baier and witness the most obnoxious new addition woman in all of TV: Eboni something or other. This is a small wiry loud mouth boor who has every rude and awful trick up her sleeves 24/7 and she´s gets some kind of anchor seat next to Bolling. Her counter ego named Kat something or other is so awful to see I haven´t a clue what she says. Suffice it to say it´s the new Fox and is a new hour of pure hell—that it has sponsors is nothing less than amazing.

Hats off to the Murdoch boys who are well on their way to tubing Fox for good. And thanks to Krauthammer who has joined in full force selling out at every opportunity.

All excellent Comments, here; but #s 12 and 13 are superlative.

Republicans have played the role of "abused spouse" for decades, intimidated and acclimated to every kind of opprobrium and vile accusation.

The minute Republicans --or a segment of that Party and an amalgam-- began to push back, with a spontaneously developing activist wing, namely TEA Partiers, and all the old, effete Party poohbahs huffed and puffed, "That´s just not how we behave!" tut tut
(We suspect that these people secretly nodded in approval of Hillary´s "deplorable" comments.)

Needless to say, the Left being activist and pugilistic to the core, also was a bit caught off guard. So #12´s analysis is so important.

And as usual, Lifson nails it.

Take Down the Statues of Robert Byrd

President Trump had it right when, during his press conference on infrastructure he addressed the nonstop questions on Charlottesville, he asked if those obsessed with fears of white nationalism if they would also remove statues and monuments to George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, both slaveowners, in addition to the statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

For the first time in American history there are multiple generations without an essential national cause.

One thing overlooked in the uproar over Charlottesville is that this was, evidently, merely a dress rehearsal for a much larger-scale effort planned for this Autumn. Activist groups on the left evidently have something big in store for November 4th. The idea seems to be a revival of the 1971 “Days of Rage” – an effort to shut down the country as a whole to force a change in government. Thanks to one of many political mailing lists that AT finds itself on, we received an email last Sunday from the “Stop Mass Incarceration Network,” a little-known left-wing agitation group, one

Forty years ago, American liberals still celebrated freedom of speech, when American Nazis decided to hold a march through the heavily Jewish Chicago suburb of Skokie, Illinois. The American Civil Liberties Union sprang to the defense of the Nazis’ right to march, and a Supreme Court decision, no less, in the case National Socialist Party v. Skokie, established the principle that even a hateful symbol like the Swastika is covered by the First Amendment protections for speech. The march was held in Skokie with no violence whatsoever reported, and the case became an opportunity for liberals to congratulate themselves on their

Those who control the narrative, control the truth.

We’re all so used to double standards from the media that we barely notice them.

President Trump is being roundly criticized by most of the media for failing to criticize one side over the other in the Charlottesville riots, even before the exact sequence of events is understood, such as who initiated the violence. The verdict in this case must precede the evidence. So let’s take a short trip down memory lane and recall how the media

A crowd of ignorant protesters pulled down a bronze Confederate statue that stood before a county government building in Durham, North Carolina — the angry national backlash to the Charlottesville brouhaha over the Robert E.

President Trump should have left well enough alone.

That would be the violence that is infecting our politics and the frightening acceptance of it as the new normal. But Trump’s defiance yesterday is sure to keep the media pot boiling over his rhetoric instead of an ominous reality. Namely, that real protestors don’t carry baseball bats, crowbars and mace.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has weighed in on the weekend´s violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, castigating Donald Trump without naming him. ´We can have no tolerance for an ideology of racial hatred. There are no good neo-nazis,´ McConnell said in a statement.

Trump ignited a political firestorm yesterday during an impromptu press conference in which he said there was "blame on both sides" for the tragic events that occurred in Charlottesville over the weekend. Now, the discovery of a craigslist ad posted last Monday, almost a full week before the Charlottesville protests, is raising new questions over whether paid protesters were sourced by a Los Angeles based "public relations firm specializing in innovative events" to serve as agitators in counterprotests.
