Anarcho-Tyranny In Charlottesville And Durham: Antifa Topples Confederate Monument–Where Are The Police?
Even the Respectable Right are saying that #UniteTheRight were the victims of anti-white rioting in Charlottesville, and that this was the fault of local police. (See here and here, via Instapundit, who hopes the “Justice Department will investigate” it.) Jim Goad, who’s not quite so respectable, has some analysis in TakiMag (links all his)
It’s hard to argue against the contention that in the current climate, any white person who doesn’t go out of their way to apologize for being a white person is Public Enemy Number One. What’s sociologically fascinating is this intra-racial tribal war among what are called the goodwhites and the badwhites. In case you couldn’t figure it out, the “goodwhites” are the ones that are constantly apologizing.
Shortly after being told that Lee Park was off-limits, police announced that the entire city of Charlottesville was an unlawful-assembly zone. The rally-goers were thus forbidden from holding smaller events in nearby parks. So as they dispersed, they were sent into the hands of bat-wielding local blacks, who persistently taunted them as they quietly tried walking to their cars.
I watched about twenty minutes of a livestream in Charlottesville where a lone white guy with a shaved head and sunglasses had a prolonged standoff with dozens of local blacks and a smattering of communist white weirdlings who mostly stood back and let their more muscular black allies do most of the taunting. I also watched another livestream where Alt-Right types were walking away from the event were screamed at by blacks leaning out of passing cars. According to accounts, many of the blacks who roamed the streets of Charlottesville couldn’t tell the difference between white nationalists and white anti-racists, so they harassed them all indiscriminately. This is funny to me for reasons that should be obvious.
What quickly became evident to me was that the authorities completely shut down an event where the organizers had a permit, but they didn’t touch the roaming mobs of BLM and Antifa goons who hadn’t bothered to obtain permits. Police allowed them to chant “WE HAVE REPLACED YOU” and “WE’RE HERE, WE’RE GAY, WE FIGHT THE KKK” despite that alleged order about all public assemblies being temporarily banned.
I watched the day’s most infamous event, and the one that will be milked of every last drop for political purposes, right as it livestreamed—the car-plowing incident that resulted in the death of one woman and injuries to dozens of others. I watched a person get killed as it happened, and even though I wasn’t there, it’s a feeling you can’t quite ever scrub from your mind. Plenty of evidence has emerged—and it will be suppressed—that before plowing into the crowd, murder suspect James Alex Fields, Jr.’s car had been repeatedly attacked by bat-wielding rioters. [More]
Now we see this–Antifa toppling (illegally, of course) a monument to a Confederate soldier in Durham, NC:

The State governor, who should have been sending enough troopers to jail the vandals, tweeted this:
The racism and deadly violence in Charlottesville is unacceptable but there is a better way to remove these monuments #durham – RC

This is not going to end well.
