Two stories on American Thinker. The first dated on 6/21 about a Trump supporting Hispanic unleashing Saul Alinsky Communist tactics on a White supporter of Communist Black Lives Matter in Tulsa (the irony is magnificent). The second story is dated today (6/22) about how Communist Antifa/BLM have turned Seattle into a violence-ridden totalitarian enclave within the borders of the United States of America. A snapshot of America if Dems win elections on November 3, 2020.

A Hispanic vendor in Tulsa uses Alinsky tactics against a BLM supporter
June 21, 2020
One of the things conservatives notice whenever leftists flare up is that, subject to a few notable exceptions (Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Dan Crenshaw), our conservative politicians are cowardly. They never call out the leftists; instead, they simply try to soothe leftists’ destructiveness while accepting their premises.
Thankfully, politicians are a minority amongst conservatives. Most conservatives are regular folks who live and breathe their principles – as is the case with a Hispanic vendor at the Tulsa rally who got harassed by a couple of white Black Lives Matter protesters. Instead of backing down, the vendor went full, and beautiful, Alinsky on the whole BLM premise.
Saul Alinsky fought for the wrong side, but he was a smart tactician who came up with excellent rules for fighting an ideological opponent. Three of his rules are pertinent here:
- RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”
- RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”
- RULE 6: “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.”
With those rules in mind, enjoy what happened in Tulsa when a mostly white group of Black Lives Matter protesters showed up at the Trump rally. The video begins when a white guy wearing the de rigueur leftist virtue mask (his has “BLM” emblazoned across it), and a t-shirt saying “I know words. I have the best words – Stable Genius,” spots a man who looks Hispanic. The white guy seems shocked that a Hispanic man is selling Trump merchandise while wearing a Trump hat and a t-shirt with a “God Guns and Trump” logo.
The white guy opens with a classic white person microaggression question: “Where’s your daddy from?” The vendor answers, “America.”
The inquisition continues: “Which part?” (You can see the white BLM brain think, “Maybe he means Latin America!”)
The vendor politely replies, “El Paso, Texas.” Moreover, boasts the vendor, his grandparents fought in World War II and his father fought in Vietnam.
White guy’s equally white girlfriend suddenly realizes he’s making a racist idiot of himself and pulls him away. The vendor isn’t done yet, though. He hollers after the man, “America first, all the way, bro! F**k BLM, bro. F**k BLM. You know, babies’ lives matter.”
For leftists, that phrase — “Babies’ lives matter” – is fighting words. Another white dude, with a useless mask glued to his chin, leaving his mouth and nose exposed, and wearing a “Juneteenth” shirt, takes up the battle.
Chin-mask guy has read the New York Times, so he knows that America began oppressing black lives in 1619. He’s therefore ready with the question he’s certain will silence the vendor. “Have babies been oppressed for four centuries?” he asks. Chin-mask guy is clueless that aborting 62 million babies since 1973, including a disproportionate number of black babies, is oppression.
The vendor is having none of it. “To this day, I have not met nobody who owns a slave, has slaves. I never met one slave. Stop living in the damned past, okay?”
Faced with this provocation, chin-mask guy starts babbling about systemic discrimination. And that’s when the vendor turns the table on him.
“Two days ago, I lost my money. How about you reimburse me for that. I’m a minority. Give me your money,” he says, holding out a mock pleading hand. “I’m a minority. Give me my reparations.”
Suddenly, the chin-mask guy is done talking about systemic oppression. He’s offended. “For what?” he demands.
“Because I’ve been oppressed. I’m a minority.”
Like Pavlov’s dog, chin-mask guy latches on to a magic word. “Yes,” he says, nodding his head rapidly, “you’ve been oppressed. You’ve definitely been oppressed.”
“So give me my rights. You’re white. Give me my reparations. Give me my reparations!”
Chin-mask is on board. “Yes. You have my promise of reparations.” He does not, however, dig into his wallet. Instead, puzzled, he asks, “How am I going to give you reparations?”
That’s a foolish question because the vendor has already told him how real reparations should work. Chin-mask guy is white and he’s admitted his white guilt, so he, personally, should dig into his pocket.
With that foolish question, chin-mask guy just gave the game away. If he genuinely believed that he, merely by virtue of being white, was personally responsible for oppression, he wouldn’t just hand over his cash, he’d pull a Mother Theresa and give all of his worldly goods to minorities.
But chin-mask guy doesn’t feel that at all. He feels that you, the taxpayer; you, the recent immigrant; you, the person whose ancestors fought and died to end slavery; you, the black conservative, should pool your wealth and give it to his virtue-signaling cause.
A smart friend of mine said, rightly, that we need to start calling leftists on their shtick and ridiculing them. We need to go full Alinsky on them, and Mr. Vendor played Rules 4 through 6 perfectly. I know that I enjoyed watching Mr. Vendor force chin-mask guy to answer for his own book of rules and then ridiculed him for his inability to do so.
So much for Seattle’s ‘summer of love’
June 22, 2020
So much for Seattle’s “summer of love.” That’s some “block party atmosphere” they’ve got in the CHOP.
Less than two weeks after Seattle’s mayor allowed warlords to declare an autonomous zone over six blocks of Seattle in the name of “abolishing” the police, the place is already starting to look like Liberia.
According to the New York Times:
One person died and another was critically injured by gunfire early Saturday morning inside a portion of a Seattle neighborhood that has been occupied by protesters for more than a week, officials said.
The shootings unfolded at a protester-run region known as the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone or the Capitol Hill Organized Protest area. It has been celebrated as a “no cop” zone, and the Seattle Police Department wrote in a statement that detectives were investigating the shooting “despite the challenges presented by the circumstances.”
Apparently, the cops couldn’t get in in order to clear a path to allow the first responding medics in.
For that, the warlords running that hole are blaming cops for their own barbaric rule.
“Autonomous,” indeed. Actually, it’s infantile. They take over six city blocks claiming themselves more fit to rule than the established rule of law and its Democratic rulers allowed. They vowed they’d be police-free. They’d show us all how, and then they got exactly what they wanted as Seattle’s wretched leftist officials bowed to them and cheered their becoming police-free. After that, word got out that it was going to get mighty easy to get away with killing people, because city officials had already abdicated.
The “gun-free zone” talk went out the window in this dumpster fire of autonomous rule, too. Here’s a warlord handing out weapons to anyone over 18 from the trunk of his car:
Doesn’t sound like what’s known as the CHOP zone went with registrations or background checks, let alone ammo limits.
Here’s more blame-the-cops lunacy:
“Last night’s shooting should redirect us to the task at hand — to defend Black lives by dismantling the Seattle Police Department and investing in real community safety,” a group called Decriminalize Seattle said in a statement.
Now there’s another incident.
SEATTLE — Another night of gunfire at Seattle’s protester-led “autonomous zone” sent one person to the hospital with injuries, the second round of gun violence over the weekend in an area where officers had pulled out of the police station.
Susan Gregg, a spokeswoman at Harborview Medical Center, said one person who had been shot in or near the zone was brought by private vehicle for treatment late Sunday night. The victim was in serious condition, Ms. Gregg said. The Seattle Police Department said it was investigating a reported shooting inside the zone.
On Saturday morning, separate shootings left a 19-year-old man dead and another in critical condition.
There will be more.
The hard reality is that cops can’t be blamed for not risking their lives for a warlord zone engaged in a trash-can war. Police are there to uphold rule of law and keep everyone safe. They shouldn’t be expected to risk their lives or die to uphold a warlord hellhole that exists solely in opposition to their existence.
As cops are being blamed, the real blame goes to Seattle’s disgusting far-left officials, who let it all happen right under their noses. They were not just naïve; they were motivated by their comparable hatred of cops and their overarching hatred of President Trump. Remember this ugly taunt from the mayor of Seattle?
So much for all this lovely “summer of love” and the “big block party.”
It went downhill fast in the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ), since renamed “CHOP.”
It’s tempting to want to just let the place burn and let the dirtbags stir in their own juices. But an ugly precedent has been set, trash-can fires can always spread, and people are going to be fleeing. If President Trump can’t send troops in, it makes sense to penalize the city for its sickening absence of responsibility to its own sworn upheld office. Legal means to put these people in the docks, and withholding of fundings might just be a start.
