Twitchy highlighted the epic thread below, written by Canadian professor, Gad Saad, about how Leftists like to pretend they care about the little people when, in reality, they know it’s all a bunch of BS.
“Let me explain yet again the source for all of the platitudinous virtue signalling. The truly privileged elites know that deep down they are frauds. They suffer from existential guilt.
“Hence, one of the ways by which they assuage the guilt albatross around their necks is to demonstrate to the world that they are truly compassionate, truly loving, truly caring, truly profound. Hence, they love all ‘undocumented’ immigrants. They love Mother Earth. They love the ozone layer. They love BLM. They love socialism. They love inner cities. They hate the gentrification of neighbourhoods. They love mentors of color. They cherish diversity. They love LGBTQ movies. They adore queer architecture.
“They are better than you. More caring, more cultured, more empathetic. This permits them to sleep better at night. See, I’m not a fraud. I may be a gargantuan parasitic hedge fund bullshitter but I really care. I may be an overpaid BS actor but I fight for solar panels. Those fly over rubes deserve their lot in life. They are racists who bed their siblings. We are science supporters who fight against Mother Earth rapists whilst flying in our private jets.
“It is a classic ego defensive strategy that permits the ruling class to exist within their fractured selves. Save this thread. Memorize it. I’m offering you a deep psychological explanation of our times.
Evidence is coming out giving the Big Giant Lie to the Democrats’ second impeachment of Donald Trump.
On January 6, at 12:45 pm, law enforcement agencies received a report of a suspected pipe bomb at the Republican National Committee headquarters. At 1:15 pm, agencies received a report of a similar device at the Democratic National Committee headquarters.
Then-President Trump’s speech began around noon. In it, he allegedly incited the riot that began about two hours later by saying, “I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.”
Two members of the Proud Boys – a gang-like group of “proud Western chauvinists” – have been arrested and charged with removing metal crowd-control barricades and breaking a window in the Capitol on January 6th.
The Proud Boys was founded in the lead-up to the Trump 2016 presidential victory. They are known for their violent clashes with Black Lives Matter and Antifa protesters.
On January 6, BLM activist John Sullivan (aka, JadenX) filmed CNN photojournalist Jade Sacker inside the Capitol. She says, “You were right. We did it!” He responds, “I was trying to tell you. I couldn’t say much.” She says again, “You were right.” That sounds a whole lot like this was pre-planned [:30]
Once upon a time, John Sullivan was an aspiring Olympic speed skater. In more recent years, he’s been a left-wing agitator. He founded Insurgence USA, a protest group for “racial justice and police reform,” began referring to himself as “Activist John”, and filled his Twitter feed with anti-President Trump rhetoric, his support for Black Lives Matter, and his participation in recent protests.
Sullivan faces riot and criminal mischief charges for his actions during a Black Lives Matter protest he helped organize in Provo, Utah, last June. These included encouraging protesters to block roadways, threatening to beat a woman in an SUV and then kicking her door, leaving a dent. He was also seen throughout the protest in company with Jesse Taggart — the man charged with shooting a motorist. He was heard talking about seeing the shooting, but did not attempt to stop it, nor did he condemn the action or aid police in investigating it.
On January 6, John Sullivan embedded himself with Trump-supporting patriots, pretending to be a MAGA supporter. Then he helped storm the Capitol Building. He was arrested and faces multiple charges for entering the Capitol Building through a broken window and encouraging rioting. He can be heard on his own videotape encouraging violence: “Let’s go. This shit is ours! F*ck yeah … We accomplished this shit. We did this together. F*ck yeah! We are all a part of this history … Let’s burn this shit down.” Although he claimed to only be there as a journalist to videotape the event, he was wearing a ballistic vest and gas mask and had no press credentials.
Although Sullivan was released on bail, the judge barred him from posting on social media, attending protests, and firearms. He also was fitted with a location monitor and instructed to remain at his residence. This week, he was accused of violating those conditions.
Though the violations were not specified, it is known that Sullivan altered the Insurgence USA site description away from its former Black Lives Matter-friendly goals to something more compatible with his legal defense.
“Insurgence USA’s mission is to provide you the truth. We are on the frontlines, giving you unedited raw footage, photos, and news of the insurrection here in America.
“Revealing the truth about Antifa and BLM’s communist plans to overthrow democracy.
“Exposing the sinister motives of Proud Boys and Right-Wing militias as they plot to topple the government.
“Welcome to the revolution.”
The original leftist rioters’ agenda of Insurgence USA is clearly revealed in the site’s on-line store, which sells all the Black Bloc gear favored by BLM and Antifa rioters, plus tees and buttons featuring the Black Power fist and red MAGA-style hats that actually say, “Made Ya Look Black Lives Matter.” The store also sells pink rubber pigs, but I’m clueless as to why. Do they throw them at cops?
He also set up and promoted a crowd-funding effort at PayPal to finance his legal defense fund. “John Sullivan Aka Jayden X was arrested as a Journalist during the Storming Of The Capitol help defend his 1st Amendment Rights.”
He has received two payments of one cent each toward his $100,000 goal. They were accompanied by very critical messages suggesting he belongs in prison. One mentioned soap.
The photo above is from the almost entirely PEACEFUL “Stop the Steal” march.
The Wikipedia article says, “Many of the crowd at the Capitol, some of whom had gathered earlier, breached police perimeters and stormed the building.”
Many? Of THAT crowd? How is the Capitol Building still standing?!
In the sidebar of the Wikipedia article it says, “400+ involved” and “174 arrested.”
Oooookay. Well, call me crazy, but I’m thinking that if the total crowd had been … say 1,200 to 1,500? … then 400 could have been honestly described as “many of the crowd.” But that crowd looks to me like it was in the hundreds of thousands … making 400 more like “a tiny minority” than a “many.”
There are other reports of allegedly right-wing Trump supporters having been arrested for participating in and possibly pre-planning the riot. At this point, these reports are confusing. But I’ll keep you posted.
FOLLOW THE MONEY, HONEY: When President Obama announced he was killing the Keystone XL pipeline, he said it was because the pipeline from Canada “would not serve the national interests of the United States.” Biden just did the same thing, claiming it was about protecting the environment.
The pipeline is the safest, least expensive means of getting the stuff where we need it, so one suspects the real reason for blocking its construction is that Warren Buffett (major Democrat donor) owns the railroad it travels on now … and would not travel on if the pipeline were completed.
JACKBOOTS: In the flurry of FAUXTUS’ executive orders was one called “Modernizing Regulatory Review” that was almost entirely overlooked but could easily end up having the biggest impact. It isn’t about modernizing regulations. It’s about unleashing the regulatory state with a ferocity never before seen in this country.
In the past, regulations where the cost of compliance far exceeded the benefits could be stymied by the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs. This order changes the review process into “a tool to affirmatively promote regulations” and “to ensure swift and effective federal action” on absolutely everything.
SPEECH POLICE: One of the numerous executive orders FAUXTUS signed in his first week is one that bans the use of “China virus” to describe COVID-19 by federal employees. According to the order, designating the virus by its point of origin is “inflammatory and xenophobic.”
TOLERANCE: I dunno who posted the text exchange in the graphic, but the screed below was posted on Facebook by a Rome, NY, elementary school teacher.
“Just want to remind the white privileged Trump supporters, who are eerily silent as of late, that you’re scum and yourself a plague upon the world. I hope the universe blesses you with infertility and the inability to piss without it hurting. Y’all extinct. Go the f*** away. Be shameful. We will never forget. Oh, and if you’re family or you consider yourself a close friend and voted for him, go f*** yourself. I will gladly take a bereavement day at the spa when you expire.“
