"It Will Come To Blood" Four Years Later—The Left's Trump Inauguration Day Tantrum Was Just The Beginning

James Fulford writes: We've been hearing a lot about "right-wing violence" at the recent Capitol protests from pundits who seem to have forgotten that the Communists who rioted against Trump rallies before he was elected also turned up on his first day in office to riot against his election.

VDARE.com editor Peter Brimelow wrote this below after Inauguration Day 2017 about the substantially-unreported military occupation and fencing in the District of Columbia, which notoriously prevented Trump supporters getting to the reviewing stands, resulting in much media gloating. But Biden's Inauguration has much more military preparation, and twelve-foot fences with razor wire...something Trump's disloyal subordinates wouldn't put on the border fence.

And this is being cheered by the same people who thought that Trump's 2019 Fourth of July military parade was some sort of "Crossing The Potomac" moment.

That means that you could either say that the outgoing Trump Administration is protecting Biden better than the Obama-Biden Administration was willing to protect Trump...or that the Deep State is on Biden's side.

There's no reason to expect any trouble from the 74 million Americans who voted for Trump—the Epiphany Capitol Protest was apparently spontaneous, and mild by the standards of the Summer of George Floyd. But the J-20 Riots of 2017 were planned and organized by Antifa.

Another riot planned and organized by Antifa: the assault on the Unite The Right Rally (itself a genuinely peaceful protest) at Charlottesville in August, 2017, eight months after the Inauguration Riots.

The Left has always been the party of riots that are called protests, and we've just had a year of burning, looting, murder, and destruction to prove it. See Michelle Malkin: Amnesia of the Anarcho-Tyrannists for more.

The question is will the "exemplary" punishment of Capitol protesters, which looks to be massively unequal justice, intimidate dissident members of the Historic American Nation? Or will it, as Admiral Yamamoto was depicted as saying after Pearl Harbor,  "awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve"?

"It Will Come To Blood"—Reflections On The Left's Anti-Trump Inauguration Tantrum
 
January 22, 2017

You could tell from thirty miles out that this was not a day like all others. Northern Virginia traffic is notoriously awful—I once derailed Joe Sobran’s bitter complaints about it, in his see-no-evil-in-immigration days, by pointing out that sprawl is a direct result of immigration-driven population growth—but in the rainy early morning I-66 was eerily empty. Quite obviously, even civilian commuters were staying home on Inauguration Day. Our native guide, who had been planning a complicated route involving parking at a far Metro stop, grew increasingly optimistic. We finished up driving all the way to Roslyn, the edge of the heart of the District, where we found parking easily and took a cab to Capitol Hill.

There the reason for the eerie emptiness became immediately apparent: there had been a military coup.

The streets swarmed with uniformed men (and women, looking ridiculous as usual but still carrying guns). It was extremely difficult to get around. Humvees, concrete blocks and high wire fences had sprung up everywhere.  There was an unmistakable feeling of curfew—intensified by fact that, as you got closer, everyone seemed to be hurrying intently in the same direction, as if trying to get home before the blackout. They were Trump supporters, cheerful but orderly and quiet, headed for the Mall.

As it happened, VDARE.com senior management had this odd (but usefully traffic-clearing) experience in another great American city a few months earlier: an empty Cleveland, when Donald J. Trump accepted the GOP nomination.

But in Cleveland there were no riots. It’s a mark of the Left’s intensifying assault that in D.C., despite this intense lockdown, there were still riots and some 230 arrests.

When you're catching flak, you're over the target. When you're triggering threats of violence from the Biden crime family, you know you've hit the bull's-eye.

As the entrenched Obama-Biden syndicate that I chronicled in my 2009 book, "Culture of Corruption," officially returns to power in Washington, D.C., this week, it's worth calling attention to a telling little message from Hunter Biden's top business partner about yours truly. The Feb. 15, 2011 email was one of thousands stored on the abandoned laptop of Joe Biden's scandal-plagued son.

Heres' the backdrop: Over the past decade, I have reported extensively on Joe Biden's lifelong milking of his entrenched swamp career for the benefit of his family—including his promotion of government-subsidized Amtrak rail boondoggles. During his tenure as vice president in the Obama administration, Biden fronted a $53 billion high-speed train initiative. He installed friends and family inside the agency while eliminating longtime fiscal watchdogs looking out for taxpayers.

In 2009, I spotlighted how veteran Amtrak inspector general Fred Weiderhold was abruptly "retired"—just as the government-subsidized rail service faced mounting complaints about its meddling in financial audits and probes. Weiderhold had blown the whistle on overzealous intrusion by the agency's Law Department into his investigations of $1.3 billion in rail stimulus money and exposed how Amtrak's legal counsel had usurped the watchdog's $5 million portion of federal stimulus dollars to hamstring his probes.

Donald Trump’s presidency finally comes to an end this week. He departs from office impeached a second time and banned from nearly every tech platform. The Mainstream Media calls him one of the worst presidents of all time. Never-Trump Republicans are thrilled at Trump’s departure and can’t wait to bring back the Paul Ryan status quo. Even some staunch immigration patriots such as Ann Coulter are sour on him. Trump certainly had his flaws and made serious mistakes, particularly on immigration. But compared to his predecessors and his political opponents, he was a breath of fresh air. He made real progress on immigration and dragged the GOP along with him. We should remember his missed opportunities, but it’s also important to note what Trump did right.

Trump promised a national populist challenge to Conservative Inc. orthodoxy. He pledged to limit immigration, enact trade policy to protect American industry, bring the troops home, and restore law and order. Some of these pledges he met. For instance, he managed to crush ISIS without starting any new wars. On the crucial issue of immigration, he made significant strides. Immigration overall was reduced in his presidential term. There was a year-over-year decline in the Immigrant Workforce Population for 15 straight months in Trump’s final leg in office, only broken by the start of the Biden Rush in December. The decline started several months before COVID and was an even steeper than during the 2008 recession. Overall, Trump reduced immigration by 49% during his tenure [Trump Cuts Legal Immigrants By Half And He’s Not Done Yet, by Stuart Anderson, Forbes, July 21, 2020].

He achieved this though administrative actions. The Leftist media complained Trump had built an “invisible wall” against legal immigration through stricter regulations and higher standards for entry [Trump Got His Wall, After All, by Rachel Morris, HuffPo, November 24, 2019]. These new standards led to record-high denial rates for H-1B visa applicants, forcing companies to provide more proof they needed foreign workers and boosting graduates of American universities. Trump further tried to limit immigration through the public charge rule. This rule prohibited immigrants who relied on government assistance or who were likely to need such aid from receiving green cards.

VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow called for a rethinking of Martin Luther King Day in 2015, arguing that MLK was a deeply flawed figure and an inappropriate role model for American whites. Now this is even more the case, since it appears the U.S. may be about to acquire yet a second Hate Whitey Day, in the form of President Kushner’s proposed Juneteenth, and the fact that the MLK Day symbolic appeasement project has manifestly failed.  We propose to repeat this call until We (so to speak) Overcome.

Recently Steve Sailer blogged about While Hollywood looked for perfect villains, they were hiding in plain sight, a January 15, 2021  WaPo piece by Ann Hornaday about the Deplorableness of the protesters who did the Mostly Peaceful Epiphany Protest at the Capitol

Ms. Hornaday’s thesis is that normal people (specifically white male Christians) are bad. Her case in point: the FBI’s investigation of Martin Luther King:

In fact, the White, male, Christian version of normal was precisely what J. Edgar Hoover was going for when he recruited for the FBI, the investigative agency he ran with an iron fist for nearly 50 years.…

Hornaday [Tweet her] says of the 1965-1974 FBI TV Series

I certainly don’t remember any episode where they wiretapped and bugged Martin Luther King Jr. to gather salacious material that would disrupt his movement, destroy his reputation and neutralize his power.

That real-life case is deconstructed with precision and graceful storytelling prowess in the documentary “MLK/FBI,” which begins streaming this weekend. In the film, director Sam Pollard examines Hoover’s megalomaniacal quest to defame and defang King, whom he perceived as an existential threat to the capitalist, conservative and — most of all — White social order the FBI was dedicated to preserving. …

Pollard also shrewdly demonstrates how Hoover burnished the reputation of his agency through movies and television, which occasionally valorized the FBI’s role in bringing groups like the Klan to justice, even as white-supremacist ideology continued to spread. In 1975, FBI Deputy Associate Director James Adams testified before the Senate that the bureau had three times as many “ghetto informants” as confidential sources within the Klan — as good an index as any of the agency’s priorities [Links in original].

What’s missing from Hornaday’s bashing of the FBI: the context that MLK was leading a movement which used mass illegal demonstrations ( the famous Selma Bridge March was in defiance of a court order) to provoke police into responding in ways the Main Stream Media could make look bad—you know, the sort of thing that would interest someone responsible for “intelligence and counterterrorism”, as above.

Also that King’s movement was staffed, led, and to an undefined extent controlled by Communists in turn controlled from Russia, most notably a man called Stanley Levison.

Martin Luther King was never himself a Communist—far from it. But the FBI's wiretapping of King was precipitated by his association with Stanley Levison, a man with reported ties to the Communist Party. Newly available documents reveal what the FBI actually knew—the vast extent of Levison's Party activities

[The FBI and Martin Luther King, by David J. Garrow, Atlantic, July/August 2002]

Finally, the “salacious material”—all of it true—included not only adultery at the level of actual orgies, but at least one reported rape. The embarrassing FBI records that were sealed by a judge for 50 years in 1977 will be released in five years.  (They’re not the kind of thing that could be declassified by Trump, although weirdly, some the most scandalous revelations of King’s conduct came out serendipitously when Trump released some JFK material in 2017.)

And as for the FBI’s “priorities”, the reason that the FBI needed more  “ghetto informants” than Klan undercover guys in 1975 was that by that point the Klan was mostly over but, in response at least partly to Civil Rights movement, as well as the Warren Court’s pro-criminal jurisprudence, black crime had exploded.

Now we see that explosion happening again, as the city-burning riots of the Sixties return.

Thinking about the memory of the man who laid the groundwork for that crime and these riots, we need to ask: why is this man’s statue still standing?

Time To Rethink Martin Luther King Day

By Peter Brimelow

First published here on MLK/Robert E. Lee day, 2015.

Happy Robert E. Lee Day! His January 19 birthday was once widely celebrated across the South (it still is mentionable in Alabama) but during the Second Reconstruction has been quietly suppressed to the point where even such a devoted son of the Confederacy as American Renaissance’s Jared Taylor was unaware, when I talked to him on Sunday night, that its local variant in his and Lee’s state of Virginia, Lee-Jackson Day, was supposed to be celebrated last Friday. (Not surprisingly—it seems to have been recently crudely scrubbed from Virginia’s webpage.)

But there’s a silver lining, sort of, in this tale of attempted historical lobotomy: It shows that public holidays come—and they go. Martin Luther King Day, rushed through Congress with Obamacare-style disregard of process in 1983, has been by now weighed in the balance for almost thirty years. It has inarguably (but unmentionably) been found wanting. It is time for it to go.

And in fact, I believe it will go, or at least be quietly suppressed like Robert E. Lee Day. The reasons:

  • MLK Day’s 2027 Problem

It is obvious to everyone that there is a reason King’s FBI files were sealed for fifty years back in 1977, and only the Main Stream Media’s typically relentless Politically Correct air cover prevented this flagrant maneuver from discrediting the Martin Luther King Day legislation in 1983.

See, earlier, May 30, 2020: Even Right Abandoning Accused Minneapolis Cop—But They Shouldn't

The incoming new administration will, with high probability, face three major crises in the next year or so. China will probably invade Taiwan. The stock market bubble will burst and the economy will contract at exactly the time that the Democrats, seeking to Elect A New People and subjugate the Historic American Nation, open the borders and amnesty 20-30 million illegal aliens.

And then there’s the Derek Chauvin trial.

Chauvin, you'll recall, is the former Minneapolis Police Officer charged with second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the death of George Floyd last May. Jury selection for Chauvin's trial begins March 8th, so this is pretty immediate.

Three other police officers who were present at the scene when Officer Chauvin succeeded in restraining Floyd have been charged with lesser offences of the aiding-and-abetting sort:

[Minneapolis Judge Peter] Cahill [Above left] previously ruled in November that it was in the best interest of justice that all four cops be tried together, saying this would allow the jury to have "all of the evidence and the complete picture of Floyd's death." But the persisting realities of COVID-19 seem to have changed his mind.

Derek Chauvin to Stand Trial Separately From Other Cops Charged in George Floyd’s Death, by Ishena Robinson, The Root, January 14, 2021

There follows some stuff about the physical limitations of the largest courtroom in the justice center. It's not big enough for all the lawyers and supporting staff needed when trying four defendants, without violating COVID-19 restrictions.

Uh-huh.
