O woe is Minneapolis:
If you want to know what the real-time self-destruction of a city looks like, Minneapolis offers the perfect model. This is no Detroit-esque collapse prompted by the degeneration of an industry-dependent metropolis. This is the willful push down the path of ruin of a city burgeoning with opportunity and rife with promises of the American Dream. It is suicide.
Instead of looking to successful policies used to counter that crime wave—increasing the number and presence of law enforcement officers for several months—the Minneapolis City Council wants to do the exact opposite.
For a far-left Minneapolis City Council at war with its police force and local citizens yet maintaining control due to leftist activism and special interests, the answer may be in the blind devotion to the radical belief of constantly burning and building into the unattainable utopia they so hubristically believe they can create.
Let the whole place lie in deserted ruins after riots, mayhem and fires have destroyed it; they voted for it, they supported it, and now they’re going to get it — in Mencken terms — good and hard.
So much for “Minnesota nice”; “Minnesota idiocy” would be more appropriate. They don’t deserve our sympathy, our support or our best wishes, especially when you see this, and bullshit like this happens. I’d say “Fuck ’em”, but they’ve fucked themselves already.
Here we go:
More than 300 District of Columbia National Guardsmen will be in Washington this week to help support police officers patrolling protests scheduled by supporters of President Donald Trump this week.
“We have received confirmation that the D.C. National Guard will be assisting the Metropolitan Police Department, beginning tomorrow through the life cycle of this event,” Metropolitan Police Chief Robert Contee III told reporters at a press conference on Jan. 4.
National Guard personnel will be assisting police officers from Jan. 5 to 7 with crowd management and traffic control, freeing officers “to focus on anyone who’s intent on instigating, agitating, or participating in violence in our city,” he added.
Mayor Muriel Bowser, a Democrat, revealed she’d requested National Guard help in a Dec. 31 letter to District of Columbia National Guard Commanding General William Walker.
Bowser said guardsmen wouldn’t be armed and wouldn’t be involved in domestic surveillance, searches, or seizures of Americans.
Damn right they won’t be. That would be un-Constitutional, not that the godless Socialists ever cared much about that.
As long as Mayor Trotsky keeps the Guard hanging around the inevitable crowd of Commie agitators (that would be the BLM / Pantifa ilk), there shouldn’t be any violence. I’m not holding my breath.
I just wish I could be there. I do plan on watching it on TV while I sharpen my M4 bayonet, whispering, “Soon, soon, my Precioussss…”
I have an uneven response to Taki writer David Cole’s articles: sometimes I want to punch him in the face, and others he makes me howl with laughter. This is one of the latter occasions, to whit:
I’m not a man who speaks in absolutes, but here’s one I’ll stand by: If a bus full of black people enters an upscale area and nobody on board is wearing a [sports] jersey, it’s bad news.
His description of a bunch of BLM mopes encountering resistance in the form of Persian Jews is equally funny:
Blacks have gotten far too used to dealing with Woody Allen Jews—weakling, neurotic nebbishes of European descent, people who are either Marxist or have Marxists in their family tree.
Persian Jews are cut from a different cloth entirely. It’s a healthy and virile community that categorically rejects racial guilting and socialist wealth redistribution. So the protesters were met by a bunch of Persian Jewish neighbors who stood against them with zero fear.
“Woody Allen Jews”… [exit, laughing]
Read the whole thing.
Okay, this is genuinely funny. Via Insty comes this little bit of mirthmaking:

From Issues & Insights:
Today’s Democrats are defined by policy choices and actions that are not consistent with liberty and independence. They are the party of:
- A coup attempt.
- Re-education camps.
- Segregation (through its support for Black Lives Matter and racially divisive policies in higher learning).
- Marxist indulgence. (see BLM again).
- Election fraud.
- Using government to punish political enemies.
- A modern serfdom.
- The cancel culture.
- A job-destroying $15 minimum wage
- Dependence on government.
- Campus and workplace speech codes.
- Crackdowns on dissenting political views.
- Apologies for America being America.
- Coastal elitism.
- Crony capitalism.
- Miserable health care.
- More bureaucracy.
- Second Amendment infringements.
- Mandated masks.
- Nags, scolds, and shrill ideologues.
- Court packing.
- Smothering regulations.
The Democrats’ plans also include robbing workers of their freedom; dictating Americans’ choice of automobiles; forcing on the country a crackpot green energy plan that will severely damage the economy while providing zero environmental benefits; transforming the country into a socialist “paradise”; and establishing single-party governance.
It’s not only what they plan on doing; some of the above is what they’ve already done, and if not stopped, will carry on, and more besides. You all know what to do; if you haven’t already done it, get out and vote against these miserable asshole Marxist motherfuckers.
From the comments to this article:
Beverly Hills business owners have been told to board up their windows by the local police department, as officials expect rioting throughout Los Angeles following the presidential election results
And the comment:
“So what happened to all the pontificating about accepting the results of the election, or does that only play one way?”
When it comes to the Left, things only go one way: the way they want them to go.
Everything else is “fascist”, everyone else is “Hitler”.
