“The protests, demonstrations and riots are all part of a spectacular ‘Product Launch’, the most impressive Madison Avenue-type extravaganza of all-time. BLM has exploded onto the scene just months before the election eliminating all of the 10 Top issues listed by Gallup that voters really care about, and skillfully shifting the public’s attention to race, race relations, social justice and cops. What an astonishing turnaround! In the old days we would have called this the ‘old switcheroo’, an art-form that has been perfected by BLM (and their Democrat handlers) who have turned the election on its head by burning down half the country, then claiming they are the victims. How’s that for twisted logic?” – Mike Whitbey, “BLM’s war on the Deplorables” – Unz Review, September 19th, 2020.

“I may end up quitting Twitter to avoid the headaches I sometimes create for myself by tweeting before thinking…” – Mia Cathell, “Canadian constitutional law professor after RBG’s death: Burn Congress down before letting Trump try to appoint anyone to SCOTUS” – The Post Millennial, September 20th, 2020.

“Some may call this act vandalism, but I believe it to be an effective art intervention… Adding a bright colour – pink, commonly associated with love, femininity, and most importantly, queer identity – to these drab statues sends out a strong message: it is time for change.” – April Aliermo, “Why artists across Canada support taking down statues that represent our nation’s ugly past” – CBC, September 29th, 2020.

“Protestors gathered on Saturday when there was an expected to (sic) Proud Boys rally in West Philadelphia’s Clark Park. When the Proud Boys did not materialize, protestors attacked independent journalists James Klüg and Lisa Reynolds Barbounis… Barnounis was attacked, her hair pulled… Klüg was chased from the park.” – Angelo Isidorou, “Antifa show up for non-existent ‘Proud Boys’ rally in Philadelphia – attack media instead” – The Post Millennial, September 19th, 2020.

“And which party has aligned itself with Black Lives Matter, the faux-social justice organization that is funded by foreign oligarchs that are working tirelessly to crush the emerging populist movement that supports ‘America First’ ideals? Which party applauded while American cities burned and small businesses across the country were looted and razed by masses of hooligans engaged in an orgy of destruction? Which party’s mayors and governors rejected federal assistance to put down the riots and reestablish order so ordinary people could get back to work to provide for themselves and their families? And which party now is threatening widespread social unrest and anarchy if the upcoming presidential election does not produce the result that they or their globalist puppet-masters seek?” – Mike Whitnet, “Betrayal. Infuriating, betrayal” – Unz Review, September 23rd, 2020.
