    A rhetorical question was asked a bit upthread on upcoming “marches” – “When the inevitable violence happens is trump gonna get the blame for all of it?”

    I think an important distinction needs to be made here.

    Klantifa / BLM and their ilk, almost every DemonRat that knows how to speak into a microphone, virtually the entirety of the mainstream media, the righteous RINOs, and from a quarter to a third of the public will ATTEMPT to blame PTrump for the violence.

    But since neither PTrump, the Deplorables or any of the remaining populace with functioning brains will not accept or assign blame to PTrump (almost two thirds of the public), the answer is “NO”. PTrump will NOT get the blame for all of it.

      Michael Stürzenberger: Six Months in Prison for Posting a Photo of Hitler and the Mufti on Facebook

      Long-time readers are familiar with Michael Stürzenberger, the stalwart Islam-critic who campaigned tirelessly against the proposed mega-mosque in Munich. He is also well-known for work on behalf of Die Freiheit and his writings at Politically Incorrect.

      Today Mr. Stürzenberger was sentenced to six months in prison for posting a photo of Hitler and the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem on his Facebook page.

      This was not a photoshop job, mind you. The picture was not digitally altered. It was a simple historical artifact from World War Two.

      Six months in the slammer for that.

      So someone tell me: why is Russia the big bad fascist bogeyman here in the USA? Why doesn’t Germany at least get a shot at that title?

        This is what the Dems/UniParty want for this country. Complete shutdown of Free speech is 1st.

        Then jail penalties comes next.

          Expressive rights denied, excluded from many employment opportunities, chased out of universities, eventually prevented from entering the military (being a conservative is being evil) and,as you suggest, eventually sent to prison or reeducation camps.

        Good Lord. But let’s remember that Oriana Fallaci and Brigitte Bardot were both prosecuted in Italy and France for writing books on Islam. Don;t think this coming here?
        This is what comes of ignoring the Left and “giving them the space to destroy themselves.” Give them the space and, well, they take it.

          No, Paul. It won’t happen here *if* we allow them to destroy themselves.

          That’s the basic disagreement. I know you disagree.

          Did you know Atlantic Monthly actually had an article lambasting the violence of the Antifa and BLM. It was in the online mag for 3 days. A first for them. Then Charlottesville happened and they pulled it immediately.

          Because of …you know….the KKK /Nazi Right. etc et etc.

          Quote from a comment to this video:

          What would I do if a judge handed me a sentence like that? One more conservative word in an internet chat room and it’s off to prison with me. And what would it take for another left wing judge to charge me with something Orwellian like “conspiracy to disseminate inflammatory information”, and order that I not operate a computer for five years. I’ve heard of that. And once they’ve succeeded in shutting down our voices on the internet, the war will be over. The sheep will sit back with their popcorn and watch the “extreme right wingers” being dragged away for “spreading hate” and they will think that it all makes perfect sense because they have no idea what’s really going on. Diabolical…

          This is like World War II. We could seriously lose this. Once they have the internet there will be no hope whatsoever. They will have won. We really could lose this…

    Ev’ning fellow Incorrigible Deplorables. Bored tonight?
    Ok, now for something completely different.

    The Trumpian war on ISIS continues unabated, and we are winning.

    ISIS has been surrounded in Syria and appears to be being split in two.

    And, in related news, Hungary seems to have gone full-tilt-boogie against the Obama/Clinton plan for Syria, in concert with the Deplorable Trumpians. (Soros, best watch yer back.)

    Caption with the pic is Hungarian “ANNA News riporter és egy orosz tanácsadó Sukhnah-nál.”
    Translation “ANNA News reporter and a Russian consultant Sukhnah.”

    Note the flag on the Russian consultant’s left sleeve.

    Tomorrow, Saturday, there is another Free Speech Rally scheduled for Boston, Mass. It’s been said there will be at least 500 police officers present to keep the peace. City officials have already said they will shut it down if there is the slightest violence. I suspect that’s the same tactic Charlottesville officials took to deny 1st Amendment Rights to the groups who were there to protest the removal of the General Lee statue. It won’t surprise me if this Free Speech Rally in Boston gets shut down before it’s planned 12:00 noon start.

    Blech. Don’t even know what to say about this. Sweden, the place where they guilt-trip the whole population into accepting young male “refugees” has denied the application of a 106 y.o. Afghan woman.

    Guess they don’t want people who are past their prime terror capacity.
