Leftist storm troopers in America
A bizarre event occurred yesterday afternoon in the Chicago suburb of Tinley Park. As reported by the Chicago Sun-Times, a gang of 18 men wearing hooded jackets with scarves covering their faces invaded the Ashford House restaurant and assaulted a particular group of about 20 patrons with metal batons and hammers. Reading the story, which says nothing about race, you would assume from their hoodies that the invaders were black. But that’s not the case. As reported further by Fox News in Chicago, the attackers were not blacks but a group of self-described “anti-racists” and “anti-fascists” called the Anti-Racist Action Group, all of them white, and the victims were white nationalists associated with neo-Nazi website Stormfront.
This could be a one-off incident, or it could be a signal event in modern American history. These leftist storm troopers are starting by attacking a group for whom few will have sympathy—neo-Nazis of the Stormfront variety. But why should they stop there? Their next logical target would be a meeting of American Renaissance readers, then a meeting of VFR readers, then anyone who has non-liberal views on race, or, indeed, anyone who the left believes has non-liberal views on race. Remember: many liberals say that the real reason Republicans and tea partiers oppose the stimulus and Obamacare is that Obama is black. Thus, in the mind of the left, all conservatives are racists, and thus, in the mind of the group that carried out the attack yesterday, all conservatives are legitimate targets of anti-racist, storm-trooper violence.

It is perfectly clear to me that storm troopers are the next step for the left.LA replies:
We can never know for sure what’s going on in another person’s head; all we know, and all that matters politically, are the things a person says and the positions he actually takes.LA replies:
If they were hitting people with metal batons and hammers, they were seeking to cause grievous bodily harm or death. How did they think they would get away with this, or survive as a group to carry on more such attacks?LA writes:
Here’s a story from the Chicago Tribune. Notice that while ten people were injured in the storm trooper attack, the story says nothing about their injuries. If they were hit with metal bats and hammers, how could the injuries not be very grave?LA continues:
And here is a story from CBS Chicago. Not worth reading, as it is as brief and superficial as the other accounts. That pretty much covers everything I’ve found via Google on this.May 21

It was only a matter of time before the antifa (“anti-fascist”) jackboots reared their heads in America. I think the atmosphere stoked by the left is the perfect swamp to bred these sorts. We see it in the rising number of Occupy anarchists willing to engage in terrorism and revolutionary violence. The same Occupy antifa types that today “protest” a radio station for airing Rush Limbaugh will tomorrow firebomb such stations and direct acts of violent intimidation against men like Limbaugh and others demonized by the leftist media and the Obama administration.Natassia writes:
Maybe this will teach non-liberal whites to stop meeting in areas hostile to the Second Amendment.Ferg writes:
Yet another reason to go armed at all times. There are no limits to their hatred of us.
