Miss Marple the Deplorable

My mother, English department head at my junior high and also sponsor of the school newspaper, told us that the Oxford comma was dropped in newspaper articles because it was one less character for the typesetters (this was back when lead type was used).

So, we have journalists decades ago giving us early warning on their lack of appreciation for the finer points of civilization!

Extraneus

Very interesting CNN link about antifa, cboldt. I'm a little more than half through, but it seems balanced.

That means they want it to stop.

Frau, thanks for that earlier info on the permit stuff. I'm well armed with facts now, though I want to see Clarice's take tomorrow. That Politifact slime pisses me off.

Sees Trump as Mussolini (literally) and an existential threat. Trump supporters are not holding "innocent opinion," rather we are a threat to humanity.

cboldt,

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Maybe, but they're even more so eucking fvil.

Extraneus

Welp, after reading that whole CNN piece, which really was pretty good, I have to say, a few of them need to be killed. If a peaceful protester, carrying legally, is whipped and beaned with a bike lock, how can that not be grounds to shoot in self-defense?

Maybe the cops will step up before the peaceful protesters do.

cboldt

Extraneous - you think that CNN piece is balanced? Picture or imagine if the group was advocating violence on account of Obama or Hillary. That CNN article is a puff piece. In damn soft terms, it pretends to be a clinical description, and at no point does it suggest that the initiating violence is wrong or immoral.

Suppose we ought to revisit all the debate talk of "accepting the results of the election"? Wow was that telling at the time.

>>>I'll agree that the antifa is unlikely to murder anyone, other than perhaps as a predictable consequence of the escalating violence in which they engage. And I agree that they are unlikely to impose an anarchist government.<<<

because maoists, marxists, and anarchists are not known to use murder to advance their agenda ...

so what big story did McAwful need covered up that he needed to gin up a national moral crisis of 90 year old monuments ...

The more radical and delusional fringe will probably start digging up then denouncing the Confederate War Veterans cemeteries around the South.

You also left out the GOPe, who is letting them know, they ought to be hitting harder.

Extraneus

I agree, but the piece didn't seem to get much into morality, except to blandly expose a slack-jawed lack of anything resembling it. And for CNN? I was surprised.

cboldt

Clarice - I like Wictor's conclusion. And I do agree, antifa is a bunch of amateurs who are not as aware as they think they are. I'm not sure that picking them off onesey-twosey has much of an effect, even if those pinched get 20 years in the pokey.

That said, DOJ did a respectable job of tamping down KKK violence, and stifling recruiting. It can be done, and I have no doubt the will is there.

I dunno about "unlikely to murder someone". A heavy hand on a steel bike lock about 15 inches long can crush a skull. And of course a baseball bat--given somebody who can hit a three bagger on a softball field just might put somebody "toes up' forever

surburban gal

antifa at the moment may have large numbers of young idiots, but the "intellectuals" writing their pieces ought to know far more about anarchism than "they don't want governments". Lots of blood on their hands, including the assasination attempts on American presidents in the past, not to mention depredations worldwide and the strong anarchist thought underlying the charming psychopaths in Cambodia.

rich

narciso-

what? Used Cars?

An underappreciated classic. Guardians Vol 2 is out but a bit on the pricey side for this weekend. If it were 14.99 to buy, I think I would have pulled the trigger though. Which is odd, because I am pretty sure I bought Civil War at 19.99 and have only watched it twice.

Secretary Mnuchin defends the President and himself from charges that the President supports neo-Nazis. It is amazing to me that he even had to say this. Glad to see he calls out the media:

America Is Struggling to Sort Out Where `Violence' Begins and Ends

More "speech can be violence" nonsense.

There is a rising idea that violence is embedded in everything from our social structures to our speech -- that speech itself can be a form of violence, one every bit as meaningful as the physical kind.

Rising? Risible!

I remember being taken to more than one game in Yankee Stadium. Didn't appreciate how special it was to sit a few seats behind the Yankee dugout, and see the likes of Roger Marris and Yogi Berra. No idea how the games ended, all I cared about was the food and drinks.

Posted by: Clarice Feldman | August 19, 2017 at 09:32 PM<<<

I'm skeptical. It could be, but I would look to state police forces ... most specifically Washington (for the fear the "antifa" will graduate to bombings) ... and I would find it unlikely WA (or any other state really) would get permission to operate a surveillance investigation in VA.

It could very well be that the people he fingered in the vid were ATF or FBI, but then to what end? A fuck up like the Mongols Trial or an uncontrolled asset like in Garland ... maybe, just maybe, the federal government isn't the answer.

I have no doubt the desire is there in theory, but the will? Hmm....

DrJ

speech itself can be a form of violence, one every bit as meaningful as the physical kind.

So I can call the constabularies and press charges for SJW verbal idiocy as battery? Really?

Jim Eagle

I do not recommend Eagle Eye which I got sucked into watching this evening and waiting patiently for it to end on TBS.

Catsmeat

"Local Hero" is a marvelous movie; "Gregory's Girl
is another one with a Scot setting, also terrific (and funny). For entirely funny, I recommend "The Lady Eve" (Henry Fonda, Barbara Stanwyck, loads of the best of Hollywood's character actors, including William Demarest).

JiB, you know, as per last thread, that any ladies' lingerie concern should be called "Eulalie Soeurs"!

So, I just read the letter from 300 Yale grads, to Mnuchin, demanding he resign. Are all Yale grads that mendacious? That letter is outrageous.

CNN gives the full text of Mnuchin's response, worth a visit. Read it. Contrast with the letter he is responding to.

These writings belong in history books, and today, they should be used as current events discussion material in middle and high schools. Not as an excuse to argue, but rather as studies in style, substance, and accuracy.

cboldt

Ignatz - I am fascinated by how the press represents the letter and the response, essentially by NOT providing the complete contents of either. As if the letter he is responding to deserves serious consideration.

And too, Mnuchin chose his words carefully. He did not denounce the KKK for example, and a fair reading of what he wrote condemns antifa and its mainstream DEM supporters.

I think his letter is a well done takedown, including the inference they are sore losers who lack the cajones to argue on substance.

Any of the The Thin Man films, DrJ. It's fun just to see all the character actors in them. Of course, in one of them a young Jimmy Stewart plays the surprise killer.

I'd never even heard of Ghost World, Cap, but looked it up and it sounds not only interesting but kind of unPC.

That's After the Thin Man, Frau, the second and probably my favorite. After the original and the second one the quality declines as the series lengthens, but they're all fun.

Hopelessly behind, this was doubtless covered. Another killing the media won't focus on.

http://bejohngalt.com/2017/08/real-news-the-msm-wont-report/
In Kissimmee, Florida two police officers (one black and one white) were shot and killed in an ambush yesterday. The suspect: a black man, apparently a convert to Islam, who. according to his now-deleted Facebook account, hates President Trump, the police and whites in general. This rune contrary to all the favorite memes of CNN and the rest of the liberal media: 1) police oppression of blacks; 2) Islamophobia and 3) only whites on the right commit racial violence.

This will receive about as much media coverage as the Pennsylvania Trump-hater who shot and killed his Republican committeeman neighbor last week – none.

Captain Hate

You should check it out, Iggy; it's pretty unique. It had a special draw for me because I knew someone just like Steve Buscemi's character (hell, there are a lot of things about him that are like me; but only some...) but on the whole it's oddly endearing. It was too unformulaic to ever get the critics all jiggy but I'm sure some of the better ones liked it.
