The Charlottesville Strategy

By Rich Kozlovich

Today I've listed a series of articles from American Thinker dealing with what I'm calling the Charlottesville Strategy because both sides of this issue are happy as pigs in mud at the results. 
  • Both wanted public confrontation
  • Both wanted violence
  • Both wanted a martyr
  • Both are fascists. 
That's the real reason this issue isn't being dealt with properly by the media and political demagogues -  neither of which want this defined properly.  Why?  Because they can continue promoting their "cause", and these monuments aren't the issue at all.  They're merely using them as the trigger to set off these fireworks in an effort to attain goals that are antithetical to traditional America. 

 But let's get this properly defined here at least. 

The KKK, Nazi's and white supremist groups are fascists just as they were in Nazi Germany - a left wing movement - part of European socialism - these modern fascists are not part of the American right, and BLM, Antifa are communists, meaning they're also leftists whose origin goes back to European socialism also. 

Communism and fascism are both left wing movements.  Fascism is the right wing of socialism and communism is the left wing of that movement, but they are none the less both sides of the same coin - socialism! 

The terms for Right and Left came about as a result of a meeting of European socialists in the 1920's where the Mussolini fascists were setting at the right side of the table and the Leninist communists were sitting at the left side. 

Stalin and his communists then attacked anyone who opposed them as being on the "right", but using the term "right" has nothing to do with conservatism.  This is all a big ploy by all the fascists in this drama to discredit conservatives who are on the right of American politics, now described as conservatives, and theoretically represented by the Republican party, as opposed to leftist, fascists and communists - all of whom are clearly represented by the Democrat Party, the founders of the KKK.   

The left has nothing to offer but violence, discord, hate, greed, envy and dystopic tyranny.  We have almost 225 years of history - starting with the French Revolution - to prove that, and that history is incontestable.  Why is that so hard to get? 

Please take your time and explore the thoughts presented below. 

Suppose BLM and Antifa Are Just Democratic 'Muscle' like the Old KKK
Christopher Chantrill
Black Lives Matter and Antifa are "muscle" groups that perform the same function for today's Democrats that the KKK performed for the Jim Crow South.......In the Jim Crow South, the KKK guerrillas now became the “muscle” for the Democratic Party. And the KKK role, apparently, was not so much to lynch blacks as to intimidate whites who might have a soft spot for the freedmen.   Now, ask yourself: are Stormfront and today’s KKK anyone’s political “muscle” today? Certainly not. For just about anyone on the right they are an embarrassment. We wish they would go away.   Now let us turn to Black Lives Matter and Antifa. Are they marginalized groups that liberals and Democrats are ashamed of? Certainly not. All over my liberal neighborhood in liberal Seattle there are We Believe yard-signs that proudly announce that Black Lives Matter. And just this weekend the New York Times and the Washington Post have written pieces saying there is nothing to see here on leftist violence.......... More

When Will New Orleans Apologize for the Italian Lynchings? 
Michael Bertolone
To the chagrin of the race-baiting left, history is messy, is not clearly defined, and consists of shades of gray rather than strictly black and white..........

Tom Mountain
The leftist throngs see Trump as the Grand Wizard of the Klan and his supporters as Klansmen, and they were in Boston to shout it to the world..........
     
Tom Trinko
Having a mob of violent blackshirts helps ensure that people never get any information liberals don't want them to have.............

Low on funds again but knee-deep in KKK history
By Silvio Canto, Jr.
Reality hit the Democrats once again.  In fact, it was like back-to-back home runs..........Well, how did that happen? I thought that the enthusiasm was on the Democrats’ side and they just couldn't wait for 2018 to roll around. To be fair, President Trump's self inflicted wounds are a problem but so far it has not translated into Republicans holding on to their cash. The second reality check is this campaign to bring down monuments. Simply put, what happens when you focus the country on the segregated past? The answer is that we are reminded that a generation ago it was the Democrats with a KKK membership on their resumes..............
 
Maybe the left just needs a cookie
By Michael James
Colonel Sanders owned a gas station and a restaurant.  He never owned a slave..........Last week, in an article titled “There Goes Colonel Sanders”, Marc Dion coincidentally wrote about something near and dear to our hearts, food. Mr. Dion is a terrific writer while simultaneously an inferior thinker. His prose is marvelous and convincing; his conclusions thin and seemingly plagiarized from something ugly perched on Long John Silver’s left shoulder. Speaking of the Confederate Flag, Dion pronounces “In the last few years, that flag has changed from a wink to a snarl, and though I like biscuits and gravy, I'm not nostalgic for the slavery I never saw, or segregation, and I believe the right side won the Civil War.” .........

Out of ideas, the left makes hay on fake outrage
By Jack Hellner
So where was President Obama's outrage when he ran Washington surrounded by Confederate monuments?..........Somehow we have been able to survive for over 150 years after the Civil War without massive protests relating to statues. Rep. Nancy Pelosi. Sen. Bernie Sanders, the Clintons, Sen. Dick Durbin and others have been able to walk the halls in the Capital building for decades and not once do I recall them saying that the Civil War statues must come down. We were able to make it through eight years of President Obama and not once do I remember him saying that Robert E. Lee and other statues must come down or else the racial divisions would not end. Far left, violent extremists groups did not travel the country having protests demanding that the statues come down and committing crimes by damaging public property..........
 
Antifa Is Un-American
James Lewis
The week before Charlottesville, Liz Warren, the newest and biggest fraud from the left, came out against a more centrist Democratic Party. The N.Y. Times op-ed page had actually allowed some Democrat moderates to publish a piece pleading for moderation on the left, and Liz instantly struck back. She thereby outsmarted Hillary, and a lot of what is happening today is a fight between left and lefter in the party. Charlottesville followed a week later, and Liz earned Antifa brownie points for pushing back against moderation. But the trouble with turning hard left too many times is that you end up in the same place you started, as in the classical French observation that "les extr̻mes se touchent" Рroughly, "the extremes meet each other." The left works hand in hand with the Ikhwan (the Muslim Brotherhood............

Terry and the (Antifa) Bandits Will Inherit the Wind
Clarice Feldman 
As the “Russian Collusion” excuse for Hillary’s loss fails for want of evidence (and common sense) as did her “misogyny” claim before it, Hillary’s pal, Governor Terry McAuliffe, obviously thought he had another keen plan to keep his party from utter ruin. Instead, he is more likely to have stirred up a whirlwind, which will sink his party even further in the voters’ eyes. Led by Charlottesville Deputy Mayor Wes Bellamy (a McAuliffe appointee to the local school board now on leave for racist, sexist, homophobic tweets, the city council narrowly approved removing a statue of Robert E. Lee from a city park. The move was opposed by traditional nationalists who think erasing history and disparaging a man who did so much to restore peace at the conclusion of the Civil War is wrong. ........

If Nazis and KKK are Trump's base, how did he win the election?
Brian C. Joondeph
Big media is in a feeding frenzy this week over Charlottesville and President Trump. So much so that they seem to have forgotten about Russian collusion and North Korea threatening to nuke America. No surprise as most media talking heads have the attention span of a puppy, and an I.Q. to match. They are trying to tie Trump to Nazis, the KKK and white supremacists, saying these groups are Trump’s base. The Hill’s headline, “Trump must throw neo-Nazis and KKK out of his base.” Within their article, they begrudgingly acknowledge, “Most Trump supporters are not racist.” How sporting of them to say that. Does that mean that 49 percent of Trump voters are racists with views in line with Nazis and the KKK?.........

The New Civil War
By Tom Trinko
The first “shots” in our new civil war were fired after Charlottesville when many Democratic leaders claimed that they had the right to use physical force against anyone they didn’t like. While cowardly leftist leaders are trying to portray themselves as fighting Hitler they are really fighting anyone they don’t agree with. Remember that some Democrats said that Rep. Steve Scalise had it coming since he opposed gun control and that Democrats have been silent when left-wing violence was used to prevent Republicans marching in a parade in Portland. Facing a continued loss of power because their radical agenda is toxic to most Americans, the Democrat leadership -- which includes the MSM -- have decided that they have the right to physically attack anyone who stands in their way. Like their Nazi and Communist forefathers, today’s Democrat leaders are comfortable sending swarms of Brownshirts out to beat into submission anyone who stands between them and power.........

Charlottesville Is Not about the Forces of Good vs. the Forces of Evil
Abraham H. Miller
If President Trump called out each right-wing bigot that invaded Charlottesville, it would not be enough. Some obsessive Trump antagonist standing behind the arc of Klieg lights while holding a microphone would find that somehow, somewhere, he had left out something. If there is anything we can agree on, say liberal pundits, it is that fascism is evil, and Trump should have rushed to condemn them after the vehicular assault on demonstrators. James Fields, the alleged perpetrator of the vehicular assault in Charleston, is identified as a white nationalist but belonged to no group. Moreover, he seems to be mentally ill................

The Forbidden Faction: Stigmatizing White Identity Politics
Michael Thau

In his response to last Saturday's horrific events in Charlottesville, President Trump became the first Republican politician to stand up to the bullying tactics the corporate press uses to enforce its delusional narrative about political hatred and violence in America. Most of the sympathetic commentary has rightly praised him for refusing to minimize Antifa's role and, by extension, calling attention the wave of left-wing violence over the past year that the corporate press has gone out of its way to keep hidden. Many have also pointed out that Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe and local officials appear to have intentionally pushed the peaceably assembled "Unite the Right" marchers into the Antifa mob, and that McAuliffe and local Democratic Party officials who let armed and masked men roam the streets of Charlottesville deserve most of the blame and ought to be prosecuted, punished, and ruined for their despicable designs.........

When Haters Hijack History 
 Ned Barnett
Is anything and everything related to the Confederacy be wiped from the face of the earth? Doing so, these radicals risk losing sight of American history. True, there were some Confederates who were virulent racists. Nathan Bedford Forrest, an untutored cavalry genius and perhaps the best cavalry leader of the war, was a former slave trader. He was so lost to hatred that he massacred black Union soldiers he’d captured at Fort Pillow. After the war, he founded the KKK. Anybody who still honors Forrest for his exceptional war-fighting ability is either psychotic or ignorant. However, there were other Confederates who cared nothing for slavery, including General Robert E. Lee, the focus of the Charlottesville brouhaha. At the start of the war, President Lincoln – clearly no friend of slavery – offered Lee – the pre-eminent soldier of his generation – the command of the entire Union Army. Lee, who in early 1861 had opposed the creation of the Confederacy, graciously refused his President’s request, not because he supported slavery – he didn’t – but because he would not fight against his home state. He told Presidential advisor Francis P. Blair: “I look upon secession as anarchy.................

Charlottesville and Its Aftermath: What if It Was a Setup?
Patricia McCarthy
The ridiculous campaign by virtually every media outlet, every Democrat and far too many squishy Republicans to label Trump some kind of racist and Nazi sympathizer is beginning to have the stink of an orchestrated smear. The conflagration in Charlottesville is beginning to feel like a set-up, perhaps weeks or months in the planning. Planned by whom? Time may tell. We know that Michael Signer, the mayor of Charlottesville, declared his city to be the "capital of the resistance" just after Trump's inauguration. We know that Gov. Terry McAuliffe is a corruptocrat, joined at the hip to the Clintons. He pardoned sixty-thousand felons in order to ensure he delivered his state to the presidential election of Hillary Clinton. We know he would like to run for president himself.........

The Democrats Wanted Charlottesville
William L. Gensert
If the media and progressives were honest with themselves and the public, they would admit that the left has wanted a “Charlottesville” for a long time. It was the perfect opportunity to battle “alt-right” white-supremacist-Nazis while furnishing a powerful optic to conflate racism with conservatism. It also aptly fits the meme that all conservatives, by dint of disagreeing with the tenets of liberalism, are in essence, racists as well. In his latest response to the riots, President Trump tried to separate the term “alt-right” from the Nazis and white supremacists present at the Unite the Right rally. Leftists, liberals, Democrats, progressives, and the media (it’s all the same) wanted these riots -- and in keeping with their longstanding efforts to control the national conversation, they want the Nazis and white supremacists labeled as “alt-right.” Some conservatives have no problem with this..........

America's Racial History in Context
E.W. Jackson
Slavery ended 152 years ago. Jim Crow segregation ended 52 years ago. Yet here we are, fighting the same battles as if nothing has changed. A few white supremacists and Nazis gathered in Charlottesville, and the whole country is now on edge. The mistake we made is giving them attention as if they represent something more than a fringe of a fringe. They do not. Ninety nine percent of Americans – including the President – appropriately denounce them and their worldview. The white supremacists are rejected by the mainstream media, the entertainment industry, colleges, universities, public schools, and the people, so how did 50 nut cases capture the attention of the entire nation? .........

Take Down the Statues of Robert Byrd
 Daniel John Sobieski 
President Trump had it right when, during his press conference on infrastructure he addressed the nonstop questions on Charlottesville, he asked if those obsessed with fears of white nationalism if they would also remove statues and monuments to George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, both slaveowners, in addition to the statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. Trump’s critics responded that while Washington and Jefferson were slaveowners, they did not go to war to defend slavery. True enough, but also true is the fact that white nationalism had its roots in the Democratic post-Civil War south and that the KKK was founded by Democrats to suppress blacks liberated by the Republican administration of President Abraham Lincoln.........

The Civil Rights Con
Steve McCann
For the first time in American history there are multiple generations without an essential national cause. Every generation of American society since the nation’s founding up to the 1970’s has been swept up in one of three indispensible national movements -- the abolition of slavery, women’s suffrage and the elimination of government sanctioned racism. A civil rights movement has become almost a psychological necessity, embedded in the nation’s DNA. This impulse, exploited by the Left, utilizing their domination of academia, the media and the entertainment establishment, becomes a major cudgel to aid in bullying the culture into acquiescing to their version of secular socialism. ..........
