this screeching creature – apparently a professor – was rendered outraged and hysterical when some of her leftist associates were arrested following an unprovoked assault on the writer Gavin McInnes.

"I'm a professor! You should be ashamed of yourselves! You're a joke!"

I give the far left credit. They said Trump's presidency would unleash a wave of fascism on America, and so far they have right.

Mind you, it was an easy call for them, as they were the ones who intended bring the fascism.

That screeching professor made me laugh. Just what I needed as I flog through 6 years of my company accounts because I can't make the cash flow tally.

Guido has a good link to an interview with Milo on the subject of the riots. He's on fine form, as usual.

Nick Land coined the term fascism factory about Berkeley and similar events:

Crying "Only a fascist would disagree with me!" while being intensely disagreeable,
Beating random people in the streets and saying "we're beating up fascists!",
Driving a homosexual Jew off campus and announcing that one has stopped a fascist.

I fear support for fascists will only go up from such events, and the current POTUS does not seem the de-escalating sort.

It seems that Screeching Id Lady is now a meme.

David

Crying “Only a fascist would disagree with me!” while being intensely disagreeable,

It’s a bold conceit, certainly, but self-flattery is seductive. As is a ready-made pretext for assaulting people and scaring them, and thereby feeling powerful.

The thing that gives such thuggery license and makes people contort all logic to minimise or excuse it, is very much an academic conceit, a product of the left. If you cultivate identitarianism and pretentious victimhood – and an expectation of deference - such that a person’s blackness or womanliness or gayness or whatever determines their moral standing - and if you tell students, repeatedly, that any facts and opinions that they find insufficiently flattering constitute “incitement,” “hate speech” and “violence” – and if you tell them that “microaggressions” justify actual aggression and a mob veto – then escalation is inevitable.

And creatures like Screeching Id Lady will multiply.

Know, of course, that the Lexi Alexanders and Sarah Silvermans of the world will never get their own hands dirty with "The Resistance." They have the useful idiots of Berkeley for that. And those Berkeley idiots will be content to remain on their Maoist preserves, never venturing forth on a sucker-punch safari to a place where there's conceal-carry.

Microbillionaire

Lemme play Armchair Supervillain for a moment and speculate wildly how Trump might work towards a fascist takeover from this if that's his goal.

From a budding supervillain perspective, you'd prefer no resistance, but that's off the table by now. Second best is the kind of resistance you can break with a maximal combination of violence and lawfulness in order to establish a norm that you're in charge, you will hurt people, and your enemies deserve it, serving to reduce further resistance. And my goodness, does this look like a great situation for such.

Bluster towards Berkeley. Demand they invite Milo back and pay for his security and treat him as a guest of honor. Get their dander up and spew hot air (incidentally distracting from EOs and appointments elsewhere). Make "the Resistance" feel they're accomplishing something and prepare to do it again. Arrange for Milo to show up and speak again later, perhaps with Richard Spencer or the like in tow. Retune the bluster towards issuing decrees and imperatives about how Berkeley must let them speak, or else! Warn of terrible unspecified consequences, so you can say "I Warned You" later.

When the upshifted antifa show in, invoke the legacy of Little Rock and send in the army, nominally to protect Milo and ensure he can speak, but in practice under a loyal officer with orders to capture or neutralize as many antifa as possible. Bring absolutely overwhelming force. Provoke incidents/excuses to start shooting as necessary.

Make announcement about how you are protecting free speech and will Make America Safe Again, touching on your own defense of "persecuted minorities" (Milo being a homosexual Jew), backed with suitably lurid images of jackbooted resistance, victims of said jackboots invited as (carefully vetted) guest speakers, the failure of local authorities to respond the first time, and the sad necessity, the very unfortunate (shed a single tear) necessity of having to use the army this way to protect fundamental rights. Muffle dissenting press with lawfare: charge them with complicity/advocacy/incitement of the resistance crimes, parallell with trials of the resistance themselves.

All hail the Golden Trumpeter! Now is the Golden Age of America! Time for an addition to Mount Rushmore!

R. Sherman

@MicroB

The flaw is the Army bit. It's against the law for the regular military to deploy on mission within the states. It would have to be the National Guard, which is controlled by the governor, in this case Jerry "Moonbeam" Brown. Good luck with that.

(Federalizing the Guard isn't the answer, as there is no federal jurisdiction. Eisenhower was able to do it in Little Rock, because he was enforcing a SCOTUS order to integrate cthe school district.)

WTP

Didn't Ike send the 101st Airborne into Little Rock?

David

For some context, and maybe a snigger or two, here’s Gavin McInnes interviewing feminist activist Heather Marie Scholl.

Microbillionaire

@Sherman,
Against which law? If you mean the Posse Comitatus Act, it has a multitude of exceptions, perhaps the most relevant one being the Insurrection Act.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

The flaw is the Army bit. It's against the law for the regular military to deploy on mission within the states.

That is not entirely correct. 18 USC §1385, AKA the Posse Comitatus Act, does prohibit Active Component (AC) and Reserves of the Reserve Component (RC which is Reserves and National Guard) from performing direct law enforcement duties, however, Department of Defense Instruction 3025.21 Defense Support of Civilian Law Enforcement Agencies lays out instances in which AC forces can be used, e.g.:

(3) When permitted under emergency authority in accordance with Reference (c), Federal military commanders have the authority, in extraordinary emergency circumstances where prior authorization by the President is impossible and duly constituted local authorities are unable to control the situation, to engage temporarily in activities that are necessary to quell large-scale, unexpected civil disturbances because:

(a) Such activities are necessary to prevent significant loss of life or wanton destruction of property and are necessary to restore governmental function and public order; or,

(b) When duly constituted Federal, State, or local authorities are unable or decline to provide adequate protection for Federal property or Federal governmental functions. Federal action, including the use of Federal military forces, is authorized when necessary to protect Federal property or functions.

10 USC Chapter 15 covers insurrection which is another instance in which the AC and Federalized NG may be used. The question then is at what point does this crap that is being played out daily rise to where Federal intervention could be warranted. It is clear that the civil authorities in California in general and Berkeley specifically did nothing, and will likely do nothing in the future, and there are arguably Federal property and/or functions via funded research at risk at Berzerkely and most major student day car centers masquerading as universities. Clearly if it spilled over to nearby Livermore the case could be made if the state officials continued to do nothing. Does the obviously coordinated actions and outside funding of "Antifa" rise to the level of "insurrection" given they want to overthrow the present government ?

At any rate, regarding the literally spittle flecked "professor", only one word comes to mind, Backpfeifengesicht.

Sam Duncan

“Polygon senior editor Ben Kuchera expressed support for the violence”

If there was ever any doubt about Polygon, there it goes.

“Crying "Only a fascist would disagree with me!" while being intensely disagreeable,
Beating random people in the streets and saying "we're beating up fascists!",
Driving a homosexual Jew off campus and announcing that one has stopped a fascist.”

Or, as someone said about the inauguration day mini-riotettes, smashing windows while dressed in black shirts to protest fascism. Self-awareness is not their strongest point.

Of course, if you weren't aware of fascism's socialist origins, you might be taken in. Good job history's being taught so competently, right?

Meanwhile, what only the most fashionable rioters wear.

David

In the United States of America, rioting to stop free speech is unlawful and reprehensible. Period. Full stop. It’s not “understandable.” It’s not excusable. There should be no tolerance and no sympathy for people who pepper-spray young women, beat bystanders senseless, and tear up property because they’re mad that another human being is speaking… If our nation can’t unite unequivocally and without reservation around the notion that rioting to stop free speech is reprehensible and unlawful regardless of the ideology of the speaker, we are not only losing respect for our core constitutional values, we’re losing respect for the rule of law itself.

From what I can make out, our agitated educator is unhappy that the police – whom she hates, according to a placard she was holding earlier in the video – didn’t see fit to beat up Gavin McInnes for… well, for walking down the street and being Gavin McInnes. Thereby forcing the “peaceful” students to “use their own fists.”

Perhaps we should send them moisturiser.

@MicoB and Farnsworth.

I certainly realize there are exceptions, but I doubt localized rioting is enough to trigger one of them. One has to remember our military has a long institutional aversion to being involved in internal affairs, even in the context of natural disasters. See, e.g. Katrina, Hurricane. Again, this is contrasted with the state militias, i.e. the National Guard. Possible? I guess, buy highly unlikely.

David

Zombie has a first-hand photo and video report from the UC Berkeley riot:

Much of the violence was at first initiated by a large contingent of masked self-styled “anarchists,” but they were cheered on and encouraged by the overall crowd of several thousand protesters who screamed “Shut it down!” and “Fuck the police!” as the black-clad anarchists began smashing things up and throwing firebombs. When it was announced that Milo’s speech had been cancelled, the entire crowd of protesters (not just the anarchists) erupted into celebration. The crowd then dispersed into city streets where they committed more violence and vandalism over the next several hours…

Some protesters gave their tacit approval of the violence by carrying signs showing the “black cat” symbol, which began in the early 20th century as a secret message among IWW union members to commit sabotage during strikes, but which has since evolved in recent years to be a code encouraging violence by anarchists at street protests.

It’s curious how those who define unflattering speech as “violence” and swoon in horror at any verbal impropriety are also very often titillated by actual violence. Committed by gangs of men wearing masks.

Just sayin’.

David

Meanwhile, gay muslim women are coping so courageously with Trump's Presidency.

No, their gripe is the white supremacist hetero-normative patriarchy in the US....

I raised that point myself a while back, Spiny. I'm thinking it's an inside joke that it isn't. Which given the current state of the world and its constant absurdities and the blurring of irony, sarcasm, and reality, makes it rather amusing. Of course, now I've blown it by openly stating so...

And to further our Mondo ad Absurdum, we now have former Clinton Labor secretary, Dartmouth/Oxford/Yale alum saying he didn't recognize any of the Berkeley rioters, thus they must be non-students, and therefor could very likely be Trump thugs.

Deborah

The esteemed Robert Reich appeared on CNN to inform, despite any factual evidence, as he casually stated, that the protestors were actually Milo supporters in a black flag type event. Obviously, it was the intent of the protesters to discredit the left.

Clearly.

Theophrastus

I find the Dalston Mercury about as funny as a prostate biopsy. But if it brings dome amusement to others, I'm fine with that.

I’m still absorbing the fact that, every year, some of the most prestigious and expensive universities on Earth, in one of the most developed nations on Earth, are deliberately churning out tens of thousands of shockingly ignorant moral imbeciles.

Meanwhile, Laurie Penny, who still hasn’t commented on the UC Berkeley thuggery, despite being at the scene, is now letting everyone know just how brave she is - for - wait for it - mixing with conservative students. Because unlike masked far-left rioters armed with iron bars who smash windows and punch women, conservative students and Trump supporters are “vicious and vengeful.” And she’s “fucking terrified of them.

Deborah

@18:28 I said black flag event, when I meant false flag.

It looks like this will be the theme going forward; that these violent and destructive protesters are just Trump supporters, KKK and Bannon-ites running false flag operations to discredit the totally non-violent and sensible left.

Gee, I wonder who will bite?

Conservative radio pundit Rush Limbaugh then put extra emphasis on that quirk when referring to his often absurd pronouncements.)

Soros has a knack for making huge amounts of cash during economic crises.

WTP

So I watched some of Zombie's videos from the riot. What stood out to me, and what I find most amusingly refutable about the false-flag narrative, is what total wimps most of the black clad anarchists seemed to be. The threw like girls, they sling clubs, axes, whatevs like they could barely lift them over their shoulders. I saw one anarchist run up and take a club/axe away from another one to more properly break the door/window. In a way I was a bit relieved as it was giving me angst just watching the wimpy one try to do so.

And the cops just stand there? Why are they even there? Eventually these mobs are going to attack the cops and I'm not entirely sure the cops (in Berkeley anyway) will fight back. I'm reminded of a video I saw a few years ago from London, I think, where muzzie mobs got the police to turn and run. Pathetic. These clowns are weak but it really wouldn't surprise me if they overrun one of these encounters because our cops are more afraid of making a non-PC move and having their lives ruined afterwards in court than they are of taking some lumps from these pussies.

Spiny Norman

Feminist diva googles?

ACTOldFart

Is this sort of university-based thuggery even on Trump's radar? If it is, what powers do he and the US Federal Government have to act on it? How dependent are universities in the USA on Federal funding and favour?

I'm sure that a lot of Federal research money flows to universities, but closing down that funding would only harm the researchers and have little to no impact on the thugs. I imagine that the intersection of those capable of doing research, or even understanding what it is, and those engaged in the thuggery, is pretty small.

Sorry if this is more questions than answers, and it would be good if someone could fill in the blanks.

Spiny Norman

Speaking of The Far Side, I see the feminist diva googles in line with this:

False Profiteer

I like all of Laurie's twitter friends trying to convince her that reporting on and talking to the people from the other side of the political spectrum is normalizing fascism. So, you know, just don't talk to them. Ever. That'll ease the tension between the different ideologies. Just kidding. Easing tensions is obviously not on their agenda.

PiperPaul

Deborah, Black Flag is a brand of pest control.

Farnsworth M. Muldoon

I certainly realize there are exceptions, but I doubt localized rioting is enough to trigger one of them. One has to remember our military has a long institutional aversion to being involved in internal affairs, even in the context of natural disasters. See, e.g. Katrina, Hurricane.

The "institutional aversion to being involved in internal affairs" went away a long time ago, and support for civilian authorities for various scenarios something which has been included in planning and training, and which is why the AC units were in place and operating in support of Katrina, some within seven hours of getting orders.

Contrary to what is usually put out, the military response to Katrina was heavily AC, under the C2 of NORTHCOM through the subordinate JTF-Katrina, under the command of LTG Honore (AC). The Army forces were AC and RC (both Reserve and NG) and included among the AC, Aviation, a Combat Support Hospital, a Signal Battalion, other support elements, and 3rd Brigade, 82nd Airborne who, among other tasks, patrolled with the NG to keep order. At one point all logistic operations were taken over by the 13th COSCOM (III Corps, AC).

All you could ever want to know about it.

It might have been an opportunity for her to have some honest reflection upon the way of life and the "friends" she had chosen.

Deborah

ACTOldFart,

The Berkeley campus is part of the California University system and is a state institution. They do receive federal funding totaling a little more than half of their annual budget. According to reports that amounts to approx $370 million, although I do not know how the university spends those dollars.

Watcher

I know I'm going to hell for saying this, but Laurie Penny is party right for believing she is slightly brave for mingling with the Milo supporters at the Berkeley Milo event. The Antifa thugs aren't British and are unlikely to instantly identify Laurie as The British Red-headed Progressive Goddess and media superstar that might save her in an Antifa riot in London. As a result she stands at risk from the swung pinch bars, pepper spray, fists, boots, and spittle from the Antifa fascists as much as any of the Milo supporters at Berkeley. She still is a complete idiot for not understanding the most likely direction an assault on her person is likely to emerge from.

Laurie Penny is getting cannibalized for talking with some Milo attendees and not immediately dehumanizing them

Yes, a number of Laurie’s followers have been insisting that any attempt to understand people who want to hear Milo speak, or Trump supporters, or conservatives in general – and to portray them as remotely human - is “normalising” them and therefore scandalously evil. One person complains that her “anarchist” friends – the ones in masks smashing stuff, burning stuff and assaulting people – are “being dehumanised as thugs.”

It’s quite dizzying to realise that, among her comrades, Laurie is occasionally the saner one.

David

If you can stomach it, Laurie’s crab-bucket world is quite revealing. At one point she says that she’s been “doing interviews with all sides,” which prompts instant hissing from the galleries. As if to correct herself, she then promptly dismisses everyone inside the auditorium as “fash,” i.e., fascist, and boasts that she “works on the basis of not quoting anything any fash actually says that reiterates their ideology.” In other words, she makes a point of never using a quote that explains their position in their own terms, as this “advances their agenda.” Instead, presumably, she paraphrases and inserts her own assumptions – say, regarding fascism - in the convenient gap.

This was declared minutes after saying that she’s proud of her “journalistic ethics.”

Interesting and prescient review of the book "Days of Rage" by Bryan Burroughs. https://status451.com/2017/01/20/days-of-rage/

I was under the impression that the screaming ‘professor’ was Rebecca Goyette aka lobsta girl;however, I could be wrong.

Funny how the likes of Project Veritas have hours of footage of not just far-Left organisations, but the DNC itself organising false-flag operations against Republicans (not to mention “true-flag” violence along the lines of what we've just seen at Berkeley), yet none of the world's umpteen Left-leaning media giants can find anything on Trump other than his boasting about women throwing themselves at him. I'm no fan of his, and don't discount the possibility that something might yet turn up, but you'd think it would have by now, wouldn't you?

Re the cheerleading for thuggery, don’t forget Newsweek.

redlonghorn

Laurie Penny getting swarmed by her "friends" for not hating Milo supporters enough reminds me of something that happened to a friend of mine a few years back. Hopefully this story will give you all a little insight into the sort of people we are dealing with here.

Several years ago on my birthday my friends and I decided to go bar hopping. A female friend brought with us her new boyfriend, who was apparently a member of some communist group in the area. After the bars closed down at 2 am, we wanted to keep the party going, and another friend mentioned that some other friends of his, who ran the College Republicans group at the nearby university, were having a big party that night which we were welcome to attend, so we decided to go there. Everyone had a great time. The CR's were mostly libertarian types, which means there were a LOT of drugs flowing at the party, especially weed. My friend's boyfriend was also apparently a pretty big stoner, so he quickly found the weed, and they were nice enough to share with him, without any expectation that he'd chip in to pay for his share. After several hours of drinking their alcohol for free and smoking their weed for free, we went home just before dawn. Everyone was in a great mood at the time, naturally.

The next day my friend got in touch to let me know her boyfriend had just yelled at her, pretty intensely. Apparently one of the guys from the party had sent him a friend request on facebook, along with the sort of generic message you send someone you just met socially ("Nice to meet you, hope to see you around" or something to that effect). His communist friends had seen this, and besieged him with messages calling him a traitor, a sellout, a Nazi, etc... just like Laurie's friends did after she committed the crime of having a good time with Milo fans. I couldn't help but contrast the behavior of the two sides. The Republicans - his supposed enemies - had been friendly, welcoming, and even shared their drugs with him, while his supposed friends were vicious, mean, and turned on him remarkably quickly based on very little. She broke up with this guy a few weeks later. I'm not sure if this event had anything to do with their breakup, but it couldn't have helped his case.

So, sadly, the behavior of LP's friends is nothing new.

That doesn’t surprise me at all. I’d guess it’s a standard pattern. And the ‘purity’ aspect has faintly cultish connotations.

I think the point is to make the demonization/dehumanization strategy possible. You can't convince someone that Trump supporters - or Brexit voters, or Milo fans - are Nazi bigots if that person actually knows a few of them. It reminds me of Jon Stewart's comments after the election. He went on a tear about how calling Trump voters bigots was a bad strategy, it wasn't helping, etc.. and that they actually had legitimate concerns about the economy, crime, and other issues. And how did he know this? Because he actually had a few friends that were Trump voters, and he asked them. And of course, lefties promptly turned on Stewart, calling him a traitor, a sellout, etc...
