The riots in Charlottesville reflect the breakdown of the Narrative, which has been the subject of several past posts. What happened on the street has been a long time coming on the Internet. The bonds of trust are breaking down. Reputation and authority are no longer recognized outside of a membership group. The personal, already political, finally become commercial. Some companies have flatly refused to serve those whose views they disapprove of. Political views are becoming conditions of employment. Some national political leaders are proposing explicit "litmus tests" to sort people according to virtue. Now cars are ramming into people. The riots

You lost me at "cars are ramming into people".
Cars don´t ram people just like guns don´t kill people.
People kill people using guns and cars.
We have no journalism anymore. It is all politically driven propaganda.

The article brings to mind some observations, whatever they´re worth.
Throughout history, people have preferred to be among their own kind. Its human nature. The easiest way to define ones own kind is by appearance or language. When forced by government or social engineers to live among outsiders, it is very stressful and can lead to what we are seeing now. You can pass all the laws you want and impose all the punishments you want, and you wont change human nature.
They did an interview with some of the original cast members of the Planet of the Apes movies. They observed an interesting phenomenon. When they would break for lunch, all the actors and extras, still in costume, would sit with the apes of their own kind. Gorillas would sit with gorillas, chimps with chimps, etc. It didnt matter who they were under the costume.
This 50 year social experiment has failed. Best to cut our losses and let people go back to doing what they want, living where they want and associating with whom they want. Better times will follow.

FTA: When public policy itself turns public life into a kind of zero-sum competition for resources and legitimacy, they may feel obliged to join gangs to get a slice of the pie. We are in a self-made political prison and the hyphens have become our prison bars.

Craftily, LBJ greatly expanded government and government assistance at all levels, he knew he was buying the votes of both the indigent and the indolent, and that such policy would damage recipients´ moral fiber. No matter. The Left, both Republican and Democrat, have continued to pile on the benefits. At what point did we reach the point of no return, and how far past salvaging our standard of living, long term, have we gone? How bad will the crack up be? Will it be as bad as the Great Depression? No one under eighty years old has any direct recollection of the ´Thirties.

#1´s objection was to a figure of speech called metonymy, and I suspect Wretchard was making a wry reference to Al Gore´s hatred of SUVs*, which beginning a few years ago were regularly featured in headlines that made it appear as though the vehicle were inhabited by a demon, not a driver. Artificial intelligence discovers the gas pedal. Not. Well, not yet. Some of us are not above revisiting that old technophobe´s nightmare. (continued)

*Gore hates you or me in an SUV. As for himself, when he gives one of his tendentious and dishonest speeches, the hulking SUV that delivered him like a psychological IED to the auditorium sits outside the backstage exit door with its engine running and its air conditioning cranking for the duration of the speech, because when Al comes back to his posh vehicle all hot and sweaty from lying, he doesn´t want to be uncomfortable for one second. Not one second. Screw the wasted gasoline, the wear and tear on the machine. And let´s not even go into his private jet waiting on the airport tarmac. Beastly hypocrite.

Despite all attempts to equalize, there are patriots and traitors in our midst. Political views are a condition for employment ONLY when the employer is Left Wing. Brushing this off with generalization only makes it worse.

There´s an old Cole Porter tune called “Let´s Not Talk about Love.” It´s not one of his most delightful works, but it does fall into the ample category of Porter “list” songs. (Snip) I´ve been thinking about Porter´s song today while watching the TV coverage of the Barcelona terrorist attack. On the BBC, on Sky News, and on CNN (I live in Norway, and therefore was unable to watch the U.S. broadcast networks), reporters and newsreaders talked about the specifics of the carnage, caused by a truck whose jihadist driver deliberately steered it off the road and onto the pavement,

The hacktivist collective Anonymous is planning a "Denouncement Day" this Friday to "denounce the Confederacy, to denounce racism, bigotry and hate," saying "it is time to take down these monuments of hate ourselves." Supporters plan to gather at 6 p.m. EST at the statue of Rear Adm.

TAMPA — As gruesome images of burned bodies flashed across the screen, Amber Perera put her head down on the desk and cried. Last week, authorities say, the 29-year-old Brandon woman caused a chain reaction crash on the Leroy Selmon Expressway that caused a Hyundai sedan to burst into flames, killing a couple and their young daughter. Now, in Hillsborough County courtroom, Perera was getting her first look at the aftermath. Her attorney argued at Wednesday´s bail hearing that Perera had daily seizures and experienced one right before the crash, causing her to lose control. Prosecutors say she was under the influence

Jared Kushner and Jason Greenblatt are heading to the Middle East for yet another go at Israeli-Palestinian peace. Yawning already, dear reader? Well, we all know why. They have a chance in you-know-where of succeeding. Nothing against Messrs. Kushner and Greenblatt, but this roundelay has been going on numerous times since the 1993 Oslo Accords. Discussions are held between the two sides (directly or indirectly), the Israelis asked for good faith concessions, the Palestinians asked to refrain from violence. Actual substantive negotiations (occasionally) occur. (Everyone has known the parameters of a successful negotiation for years.) At the last minute the Palestinians walk

Southern slaveholders were rapists. We know this because only 73% of the DNA of African-Americans is African; the rest is Caucasian with a small fraction of Native American. Most of the admixture of DNA, a McGill University study concludes, occurred before the Civil War, that is, when slaveholders and their white employees could use female slaves at will. Keep that in mind the next time Foghorn Leghorn sounds off about the honor of Southern womanhood. To own slaves is wicked; to rape female slaves and sell one´s children by them is disgusting in the extreme. Yet that is what the

A male stripper from Tampa is accused of stabbing his partner multiple times in the eyes with a pen after he suspected he was a cannibal, according to WTVJ and a report acquired by the station. Justin Calhoun, 24, is being held without bond on an attempted second-degree murder charge after he attacked Mark Brann, 67, in his Key West home, the report stated. Calhoun told police that he and Brann were in a relationship and that the incident started because Calhoun suspected Brann of being a cannibal. The two then got into an argument and Brann picked up a gun, according

Why Global Warming Alarmism Is Wrong

Dr. Judith Curry is one of the leading realist voices in the climate science community, even though she has now moved on from what she considers a hopelessly politicized field. This 12-minute interview is a good introduction to some (by no means all) of the reasons why global warming alarmism is wrong, and why politics has badly compromised, if not completely ruined, a nascent scientific discipline. Again, this is an introduction, not a master class, but it is well worth your time: Notable quote: "On balance, I don’t see any particular dangers from greenhouse warming.

Behind hue and cry over the alt-right/ctrl-left clashes lurks the big stakes game for control of the state. Past tyranny operated through control of the state, via organs of censorship, surveillance, the criminal justice system and propaganda. Without these it is merely an impotent spirit of malice, condemned to haunt little bookstores and beer gardens. Neither Nazism nor Bolshevism was possible with a small state. From the Third Reich to Maduro´s Venezuela amts, diensts and bureaus have been the true foot inside the boot in the human face. Without Deep State actors ready to exploit it the Reichstag Fire would

Being a Jewish fella, I don´t hold much brief for white supremacists and neo-Nazis. But until this Saturday, I hadn´t seen a lot of them around lately. And I´ve been going about the country quite a bit for the last couple of years, hitting roughly half the states, including some like Mississippi where the Klan was once riding high. I´m happy to report that on my visit to the black-owned Two Sister´s Kitchen in the capital of that state, Jackson, blacks and whites were both equally, and contentedly in my eyes, braving the criticism of their cardiologists for what is reputed

Donald J Trump is president. Really. He won it fair and square, he was inaugurated seven -- almost eight -- months ago, and he very probably is going to be president for another three and a half years. Minimum. So, now, children, let´s calm down. All of you people over there saying Trump is unqualified and should be removed? Give it up. He´s qualified by the only qualification that matters: he is over 35, he is a native U.S. citizen, and he won the damned election. The Constitution doesn´t have a clause in it for removal by vote of the

As Joel Pollak reports in Breitbart this morning, Rolling Stone magazine has refried and repackaged the whole range of lies--comprehensively refuted--against White House adviser Sebastian Gorka. The left-wing media keeps setting a new bar for chutzpah. Central to the Stone story is an attempt to tar Dr. Gorka with guilt by association with right-wing political parties in Hungary, where he was active between 2000 and 2008. "Gorka served as adviser to [Hungary´s prime minister Viktor] Orbán," the article states, "who´s been called a ´neo-fascist dictator´ by Sen. John McCain." As it happens, the left-wing Jewish news site The Forward offered this

Evidence is turning up from, of all places, the Southern Poverty Law Center, as well as Breitbart and others, that this character, Jason Kessler, who organized the suspicious and supposed Alt-Right demonstration in Charlottesville, Va. that blew up in everyone´s face, is a cunning lefty holdover from the Occupy Wall Street movement and a former Barack Obama supporter. I smell Soros money, sabotage, and Democrat dirty tricks here. I´ve been suspicious of the nature of the violence at this supposed Alt-Right demonstration since the news first began breaking.

President Trump should have left well enough alone. His Monday denunciation of costumed sheet-wearers and Nazi wanna-bes could have cleared the way for Americans of all stripes to focus their outrage on things that matter more than presidential words. 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. Yet Saturday’s bloody clash in Charlottesville showed that many on

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. Lee monument. This is not how civil societies operate. And yet this is what the left has brought, and now cheers. What’s next — burning books with offensive content? Burning books written by those who used to own slaves? At the very least, museums will have to go. The problem with revising history based on a standard of “feeling offensive” — as this anti-Confederate craze is rooted — is that someone,

Former presidential candidate and current Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich may be moving closer to mounting a primary challenge against President Trump in the 2020 election. Sources close to Kasich told Willie Geist of the "Today Show" there is growing a sense of "moral imperative" to run against Trump for the Republican nomination in 2020 following his controversial statements on the deadly protest in Charlottesville, Va. (Tweet) Kasich has long been critical of Trump. On Tuesday, Kasich criticized Trump´s Charlottesville comments, saying "there is no moral equivalency to Nazi sympathizers" following Trump´s tumultuous press conference. Kasich, who lost to Trump

CNN host Wolf Blitzer said Thursday there would be questions if the Barcelona terror attack involving a van crashing into a group of people was a "copycat" of what happened in Charlottesville, Va. At least 13 people were killed and more than 50 were injured in Barcelona on Thursday when men rammed their van into a crowd of pedestrians at Las Ramblas, a popular tourism area in the city in northeastern Spain. The attack came five days after a man with white supremacist group ties was arrested for driving his car into a group of counter-protesters in Charlottesville, killing one

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. The ad was posted by a company called "Crowds on Demand" and offered $25 per hour to "actors and photographers"

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. The choice of words, while careful, appeared to push back against Trump´s claim on Tuesday that some ´very fine people´ were among a crowd of white supremacists who rallied in the college town. McConnell´s wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, stood next to Trump on Tuesday as he insisted both sides of the weekend´s clash bore some responsibility for

Mr. Graham also vowed that Republicans will “fight back against the idea that the party of Lincoln has a welcome mat out for the David Dukes of the world.” “Through his statements yesterday, President Trump took a step backward by again suggesting there is moral equivalency between the white supremacist neo-Nazis and KKK members who attended the Charlottesville rally and people like

As James Bond’s nemesis Auric Goldfinger famously observed, “Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence. The third time is enemy action.” On Tuesday evening, three prominent Republicans — Senator John McCain, Senator Marco Rubio, and 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney — endorsed the left-wing media’s preferred narrative and embraced the masked thugs of Antifa as heroes. McCain and Romney used almost identical language, bending their knees to the media narrative that only two factions were present in Charlottesville during the awful events of last weekend: white supremacist Nazis and “Americans standing up to defy hate and bigotry.”

They involve a major makeover of Fox News´s ailing prime-time schedule and a rising new star, Eboni K. Williams. After the dust settles, Williams, whose current show, The Fox News Specialists, looks as though it´s headed for oblivion after the coming shake-up, may wind up on the fast track to cable news stardom.On Monday, August 14, Matt Drudge let the cat out of the bag, as he occasionally

NEW YORK- They wash their hands of neo-Nazis and wag their fingers at leftists. They denounce a press corps they see as biased and controversies they view as manufactured. But in the frenzied blame game over the deadly violence at a rally of white supremacists, Donald Trump´s loyal base is happy to absolve the president himself. Even as Trump´s zig-zag response to the weekend bloodshed in Charlottesville, Virginia, has brought criticism from some Republican lawmakers, many men and women who helped put him in office remain unmoved by the latest uproar.

The Presidency: President Trump´s statements regarding the tragic events in Charlottesville have created a firestorm that, even by the unique Trump-era standards, appears unprecedented. Unless Trump can undo the damage, it could cripple his administration. In his presidential memoir, "Decision Points," President George W. Bush wrote about the fallout from 2015´s Hurricane Katrina and his own mishandling of the situation. In particular, he admitted that a photo taken of him flying over New Orleans was a huge mistake. "That photo of me hovering over the damage suggested I was detached from the suffering on the ground. That was not how
