Oh, That First Amendment Thing…..

| August 12, 2020

A Seattle NPR weatherman lost his job because he compared the rioters in Seattle and the destruction they created to the Kristallnacht events and the Nazis bunch of thugs, those anarchic creatures the Brownshirts, and later, the Storm Source (Sturmabteilung). And the people of Germany watched and stood silent while their neighbors’ lives were destroyed.  The cycle of this mess is not done yet. I haven’t kept tabs on where and how much destruction of property and other bad behavior is going on, but it seems to be reserved to the larger cities. The most recent example of it was the Sunday midnight looting and pillaging in Chicago, starting on the south side and moving northward in a caravan, lasting well into Monday morning. The side effects to that will last a while. I’d like to see Portland’s maire really have his backside handed to him, but that’s just me.  Ergo, if a Seattle weatherman offends the delicate sensibilities of his employers at NPR, my response is that he’s closer to the truth than NPR is willing to admit… and they know it… and they are the enablers this time.

From the article:  It is notable that they refused to take any perspective on the actual destruction. Instead, they say that Mass’ comparison of rioting and destruction in service to an ideology in 1938 to the rioting and destruction in service to an ideology in 2020 is “sensationalized and misleading.”

However, many in Seattle’s Jewish community have become increasingly concerned about the safety in the city and around the country. During the riots in reaction to the death of George Floyd, Jewish businesses were targeted and destroyed. In New York, Jews have consistently been targeted for attacks by other minority groups.

Two weeks ago in Seattle, a local Jewish owned business was targeted and rioters attempted to burn down the store. Local anti-Semites with ties to Democrat leadership have been arrested and released after assaulting Jews downtown.
Seattle officials withdrawing the police and allowing armed militants to take control of six blocks of the city was concerning to the Seattle Jewish community as well as the community at large.

Many wondered what was to stop rioters from taking control of their streets or their institutions. Anti-Semitic graffiti has appeared alongside Black Lives Matter graffiti around the city and inside the Capitol Hill Occupied Protest (CHOP). – article

It is notable that Mass gave into the howls of anger from the mob who attacked him for having the nerve to suggest such a thing. I would have a bit more sympathy and respect for him if he had stuck to his guns and looked for work elsewhere. He needs to “man up” a bit, instead of running off. I understand his resentment, but there is no place where the truth doesn’t make the spoiled brat SJWs howl and stamp their little feets on the ground and throw tantrums.

Just remember: everything has a cycle and the cycle ends.  If the libertards don’t “get” that they are creating their own destruction, they’re even dumber than I thought they were.

    Cliff mass is also a professor at University of Washington, with a popular weather blog. He has restored the original entry that got him in trouble and promises a new entry with a lot to say and information not well known

    It’s a cycle alright, a unicycle, a one wheeled wonder that they are going to peddle right over the edge of the cliff. And then they will wonder what happened when they crash and burn at the bottom. After that they will blame Trump, or white privilege, or the legacy of slavery, or…reasons.

    I would say “Send in the clowns” but they are already here.

    Thank the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob that here Jews can buy guns and ammo – even if it is hard to come by.

    There should be some IDF retirees around who’d come to synagogue to do a little bit of religious training.

    So it has been okay to say punch a Nazi and compare anyone of a different opinion to Nazis but now it is “sensationalized and misleading.” to do it especially when it is an accurate comparison. Like wise I notice the the high and mighty media has buried the story about the 5 year old being executed in his front yard and of course the Epstein files but I guess that would be further sensationalism.

    At this point, who has any doubts that antifa and blm are communist groups fighting to fundamentally transform America.

    Well, well said Madam Ex-PH2. Eloquent and timely.
    Yep, it’s a shit show and lot of folks are turning their noses up in the air and up wind and saying… What?? What shit show? I don’t smell anything!!!”

    Yeah, right, well 87 more days until we hear the words… “We can now predict that Donald Trump has been reelected the 45th President of the United States…in a landslide…”

    If not, then we’re truly fucked.

    • ChipNASA says:

      Sorry, 82/83 days…I wasn’t paying attention…they’ll probably call it late….
      refusing (I pray) the inevitable truth of TRUMP AGAIN!!! and the American People.
      I just hope this second election and win by Trump is astounding and crushing….so that there is, in fact, no DOUBT, this time…

    Any time a defense statement includes “This is not who we are…,” yeah it is.
