We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Nancy Pelosi is a gift. She clearly does not understand that the Democrat party is trying to cover up their association with these far left communist sponsored groups. These ironically labeled anti-fascist groups are America's neo-brown shirts the ARE the fascist. They ARE the hate group that the SPLC won't tell you about. All of the violence at all of the demonstrations has been perpetrated by these violent left wing Marxist groups, including the violence that the media so loves that took place in Charlottesville. I can remember studying history in school and asking why all the Germans went along with the Nazis and the only answer that made any sense was that they wanted some of those things that the Nazis promised so they were willing to overlook the violence and fascist methods they used. IMHO this is the position that the MSM and the more moderate left finds themselves in. They want left wing policies and the conservatives are in their way. So make believe that the conservatives are the bad guy in these riots and enjoy the fact that the conservatives are getting beat up.
What happened in Charlottesville is that the Governor, mayor and police conspired to allow the fascist antifa mob to publicly beat up the group that came to legally demonstrate against the removal of the confederate statues. It was intended to intimidate anyone who would dare disagree with the alt-left all with the intent of rallying the left for the 2018 election. It wasn't quite "Kristallnacht" that event will probably be in our future. Make no mistake, the fascist alt-left is going there but not yet. Maybe in October 2018. And the MSM will be there to gleefully film it.
