Portland Attacks Won’t Be Stopped by Smearing Conservatives as White Supremacists

Men of good will can all agree with that sentiment. So how come men of ill will then turn around and conflate those who oppose their subversion as “haters”? (TriMet/Facebook)

“Attacks like Portland’s will keep happening unless we all fight white supremacy,” lawyer Arjun Singh Sethi writes in The Washington Post. He was referring to accounts of multiple stabbings by a violent racist that left two dead and one injured when they stepped in to intervene against harassment of two teenage girls, one reportedly a Muslim. And, as a wade through his opportunistic screed reveals, he’s dancing in the blood to reinforce cherry-picked numbers and advance the meme that “The greatest threat facing our country comes from homegrown white supremacists, not Muslims or refugees.”

It happened in “progressive” Portland on a train where knives with blades over 3½ inches are banned (law enforcement exempted, of course), and the stabbing victims appear to have all been white. But if you ignore law being ignored and the reality of who was actually injured, and just let Sethi control the narrative, it feeds the real idea being promulgated — that it’s Donald Trump’s fault:

“Hundreds of hate groups now champion white supremacy and draw inspiration from President Trump, whose rhetoric and policies have emboldened their nativism and prejudice.”

That, of course, means anyone who does not support open borders is a bigot and a xenophobe.

Much is made of the suspect’s Nazi sympathies, to further bolster the “right wing extremist” smears against Americans who reject “progressivism” and instead believe in government of limited powers as delegated and enumerated in the Constitution.  The glossed-over problem with that: The Nazis were “National Socialists.”  And while liars try to refute that by pointing out how Hitler was bitter enemies with communists, that struggle was over whose totalitarian vision and regime would prevail.

“It is now clear beyond all reasonable doubt that Hitler and his associates believed they were socialists, and that others, including democratic socialists, thought so too. The title of National Socialism was not hypocritical,” author George Watson documented in “Hitler and the Socialist Dream.” (By way of “credentials,” Watson was a “scholar, literary critic, historian, a fellow of St John’s College and professor of English at Cambridge University,” who, rather than being some “far right” apologist, was also, incidentally, “an active member of the Liberal Party [who] in his will … left £950,000 to the Liberal Democrats.”)

If political and media opportunists really want to play the game of blaming races and ideologies, plenty of counter-examples can be provided, including the inconvenient truth that the alleged killer appears to have been a Bernie Sanders supporter, and the only reason he’s glad Trump beat Hillary was “I take the fast poison over the slow any day.”

The reason for that blame game is obvious: A faction determined to culturally terraform the Republic wants to establish political control by using United States immigration policies to bring in foreigners who can be placed on a “pathway to citizenship.” That’s because all reliable indicators and experience shows that will give Democrats unchallengeable legislative majorities, allowing them to pass whatever edicts they like — and to appoint judges who will uphold them. And the best way to scare off or otherwise neuter critics of that policy of national suicide is to label and ostracize them as racists.

That tack effectively buries the argument that, as with everything else it is supposed to do, government’s immigration policies ought to be enacted to fulfill its purpose as laid out in the Preamble to the Constitution, specifically:

“[T]o form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity…”

After seeing the examples of Europe, in recent years, allowing masses of foreign nationals into this country that cannot be properly vetted, and giving “sanctuary” to the illegal ones, hardly seems the best way to attain those goals. Nor does demonizing as haters American citizens committed to “guard with jealous attention the public liberty”…

 

UPDATE by Stewart Rhodes:   Video footage shows Trump supporters kicking Portland stabbing killer Jeremey Christian out of their free speech rally/march on April 29, 2017:

 

The lying leftist media is insisting that he was part of that April 29 pro-Trump free speech march, and therefore was a Trump supporter, when clearly the rally organizers and attendees wanted nothing to do with him and kicked him out of their march, with the assistance of the police (one officer literally pushes him away from the Trump people).   The police made the right call, as the event organizers and pro-Trump marchers had a right to freedom of association and speech (they shouldn’t  have to let someone else co-opt their event and their message).

He was still free to speak his nonsense, but not in their midst.   He could stand separate from them, and say whatever idiotic crap he wanted  – he was calling a white Antifa kid a “white nigger” and throwing Nazi salutes, aka “Roman salutes” while yelling “hail victory” and “Sieg Heil, “according to his own account of the day – but he had no right to force himself on the Trump supporters who were NOT racists and co-opt their event.   A good example of why event organizers need to be aware that infiltrators and nuts will try to worm their way in to co-opt their event and message, and have a plan for dealing with it.   And a good example of the police handling it in the right way, to protect both the right to freedom of speech and the right to freedom of association for everyone.  – Stewart

      Not exactly correct. The mayor and PPD have said in regard to the upcoming June 4 and 10th events, that all parties involved in physical altercations both attacker and defender will be arrested. So they are deliberately saying you are NOT allowed to defend yourself if attacked ! And DHS has said publicly that anyone destroying property or randomly throwing objects or setting fires will be arrested and charged with an act of terrorism. So these are two new dynamics that will be in play in Portland next weekend.

      Two problems shout at me. The arresting all parties when one would have to be the perp who started any attack as the aggressor is likely an illegal act against anyone defending themselves and therefore this new policy is a sham to simply try and legally nullify anybodies right to defend themselves. So it is a setup against any Trump supporters or liberty types who are not known to start such altercations and are most likely the victims of such attacks. And in an extreme left wing municipality like Portland, PPD will NOT make much effort to actually catch the fascist, who will be using hit and run tactics to avoid arrest and still inflict damages and physical harm. These policies will lean greatly to the favor of the fascist extremist. The other problem is, will DHS be dependent on the PPD to actually make the arrest for them ? If so they will be seriously disappointed in the number of arrest made for the amount of crimes that will be committed. Because PPD has never chased these people down and made any real attempt to catch them unless they happen to be right in front of them and they see the crime being committed. This is being setup to be a circle jerk and a sham to defeat any liberty types and Trump supporters. Even if a person is completely innocent and there is video that they did NOT start an altercation and they are obviously attacked, they will be arrested and have to deal with the extreme judicial system in Portland, which is completely corrupted to the left and DEM control mechanisms in place. I imagine there will be lots of arrest and violence, but the actual criminals will be the smallest group arrested. Only time will tell the outcome, but all the info is out there and my thesis above is likely and based on the current info from PPD and DHS public comments. I am glad to see DHS taking a new approach, but I imagine they will be deliberately hamstrung and undermined by these corrupted municipalities.

      Is it possible that the Berkley municipal forces and Portland are sharing info as well nation wide to undermine Trump and the liberty types ? I am certain it would be very naive to think otherwise. These people are all conspiring to distort any law or mechanism to undermine anything they do not agree with. And many coming will be paid saboteurs and antagonist. So the stage is set. I urge everyone to use caution and confirm my comments and make any decisions accordingly. I think it would be far better to let the extremist step on their own dicks and they will ! This like getting caught in an L shaped crossfire ambush with closed ends !

        As for the mayor’s decision for the upcoming events, he is out governing with a bottom up approach. This is a subversive tactic and could be a means to subvert constitutional checks and balances. Herbert Hoover is rolling in his grave.

    WaPo is funded or is under contract by the CIA. $600 M. One of those murdered was a weapons trainer. Both victims were City employees, prohibited by law from carrying. The MAX light rail is a gun free zone.

    What everyone is being so careful NOT to address is what happened from the other side that provoked the violence. I believe at one time I heard that other men were directing their attention to him because of what he was saying to muslim women. Do you suppose they provoked him? I do. And that is not deflection. I am sure they are not telling the whole story and never will.
    I also believe that the man was NOT violent because he was WHITE as the lawyer seems to be claiming. But then, that is the way the REAL haters are. They accuse others in generalities. Amazing that some whites actually believe their junk.

      Watching video of him, and reading his own comments online, I think he was mentally unstable. Clearly. All over the place, nutty, and incoherent, which is why the Trump supporters wanted nothing to do with him. Here’s a quote from the video I just added as an update: “When I bring back the Berserker cult, we will bring back Jesus on our shoulders to…erase all you fake Christians. DARPA Iron Man suits. It will be my Berserkers, inside them. …..I’m here to shake everyone’s hand. Would you like to shake a good American’s hand?”

      Comes across as a true looney tunes.

      So, no, I seriously doubt he was some innocent man who was set upon and was defending himself, if that is what you mean by “provoked.” But he’ll get a trial, which is his right. As for “provoking” him, his only possible defense, other than insanity, will be self defense. There is no legal “provoking” defense, as in, “he was within his rights to stab them because was provoked.” The man was a ticking time bomb.

      You miss the underlying important point ? This guy was a Bernie and Stein supporter , NOT a Trump supporter or any kind of liberty supporter. This completely undermines the original left perspective of him being a right winger white guy and it has all been proven for all to see. They simply over react and that is one reason to let them step on their own dicks, because they will !

    Also note the “peace” symbol that has been used since the 60’s was on the sign. It is NOT a sign of peace. It IS the CROSS of Jesus, inscribed, inverted and broken. And that means the sign comes from satan

      Actually it is a Germanic runic symbol (Algiz) which means life, inverted it means death. Predates Christianity by hundreds if not thousands of years.

    Dude was just a nutcase looking for a cause. Warriors do not attack women or the helpless. This is a bad deal all around, and the left couldn’t be happier with the propaganda they have gotten out this incident. The Trump folks did the right thing spotting him and distancing themselves from him in the rally. Of course the media will only promote the narrative this guy was a card carrying right winger. One bad apple…

    Wow, everyone just needs to take a step back and look at the truth. The MAX train stabber was a human being. Not white, not Christian, not male, not Right Wing, just a human being. Why do we have to separate ourselves into these little groups that fight with each other? This world is losing it’s collective mind. He was a human being. One that was filled with pure evil and doesn’t deserve to be alive on this Earth because he clearly does not respect life. It’s that SIMPLE.

    You miss this by a big margin. The threat to the US is the Right Wing GOP. Not muslims or refugees. I keep having my rights reduced by the GOP. I keep having crazy people come into my private life and tell me how to live. I keep seeing a party who hates women and minorities. That is the problem. We have crazy satan worshippers running the US Government who don’t worship Jesus they worship greed and money. That is the problems we have today.
