Considering that the foundation of US politics is now constructed almost entirely from the aggregate of half-truths, propaganda, and partisan politics, it should come as no surprise that the news headlines are starting to reflect that sad state of affairs.
Case in point is Canada’s outrageous decision to designate the Proud Boys group as a terrorist entity, blaming the “white supremacists” of participating in the January 6 riot at the US Capitol. Founded in 2016 by the Canadian media personality Gavin McInnes, who has since distanced himself from the group, the Proud Boys now rank alongside the likes of Al-Qaeda, Hezbollah, and Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) in Canada’s rogues gallery of global baddies. …
To lump together the Proud Boys with some of the biggest names in terror business is a self-defeating gesture — a case of crying wolf — when it comes to fighting terrorism. Although they will never be confused as boy scouts, aside from a couple arrests for their involvement in street brawls, the Proud Boys have never carried out a premeditated attack on any individuals or individuals, to say nothing of orchestrating suicide bombings, hijackings, or other mass killings, which is the modus operandi of modern terrorism. This is not an apology for the group — just the simple facts.
So, why is Canada singling out the Proud Boys as a terrorist organization when left-wing groups such as Black Lives Matter and Antifa — organizations that have acquired global reach, as well as financial clout — are responsible for carrying out real violence in the United States?
Could the answer be that the liberal government of Justin Trudeau is only too happy to crush a right-wing group of largely Trump supporters, perhaps as a gift to the new US leader, and especially as impeachment proceedings against Trump are about to begin? And with talk of the Biden administration preparing to roll out a ‘domestic terrorism law’, the move by Canada will certainly help in those efforts.
BLM has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. If they win, it should be renamed to ‘Mostly Peaceful’ Prize.
In any case, regardless of what happens, radical left-wing groups, no matter how much violence and destruction they spawn, will remain above the law. …
How was BLM awarded for their handiwork? With an outpouring of massive corporate sponsorship amounting to tens of millions of dollars, which could have been better spent rebuilding the destroyed neighborhoods the pack left in its wake. In fact, the outpouring of support for Black Lives Matter, which seems to think that destroying neighborhoods is the way forward, has even included a nomination for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize.
Incredibly, at the same time Canada awarded a predominantly white, right-wing outfit of US political malcontents with the yellow badge of ‘terrorism,’ a left-wing group of pro-black activists that isn’t shy about resorting to violence to promote its message is in the running for one of the most prestigious and honorable awards in the world.
If I’m not mistaken, I’d say that, instead of working to promote a world of peace and stability, some very misguided politicians have just succeeded in driving up racial tensions — and possibly even the threat of terrorism — by several degrees. So, what’s the reason? Are they trying to conceal something — like maybe the great wealth divide, made even greater during the Covid pandemic — by focusing attention on the ‘racial divide?’
Is that why anti-white racism is so fashionable today? That, and the elite wants to hinder competition for the top spots.
UPDATE: Steve Sailer points out that the excess murders in 2020 from Memorial Day 2020 onward — which are pretty much all attributable to BLM — are comparable to all the lynchings in American history. BLM has a lot of blood on its hands.
