Summer is almost here, and it’s going to be a long and hot one it seems. Besides the very warm weather (98F), the politics are heating up as well. The usual suspects descended on a Trump rally downtown with the by now familiar results. Burned American flags and violence against the attendees.
When people refer to fascism, they generally mean “opinions I disagree with.” But the real thing, sadly, is not extinct. For the first time in our modern history, Brownshirts are on the march. As always, they are on the Left.
We have written (here and elsewhere) about liberal Democrats who have rioted at or after Donald Trump rallies. Last night in San Jose, liberals attacked Trump supporters in the most violent riot yet. It is hard to watch the videos without hearing echoes of the 1930s.
Here, a Trump supporter is viciously sucker-punched by a leftist. Note the Mexican flag; a common chant at anti-Trump riots in California is “make California Mexico again.”
While I doubt any medium term or longer follower of this blog is likely to mistake me for a Trumpkin, I’d have made common cause with them against these modern brown shirts of the left.
The left continues to sow the wind, yet will claim surprise when the whirlwind overtakes them.
