The Danger by Bob Rinear – The International Forecaster
I feel horrible that I’m saying this stuff in my own country. I think you should be able to wear or support just about anyone or anything (that’s legal) that you like.
A week or so ago I wrote an article about what amounts to an upcoming Civil war. Well frankly it’s already going on, it just hasn’t reached the shooting stage. But I got wildly differing opinions about what we see happening out there. It was interesting to say the least.
On one hand, I got responses that completely agreed with me. That the rise of the really fringe far left, had gotten completely out of control, and on the other hand were emails suggesting that I was blowing this out of proportion.
But it is hitting home now, and at the bottom of this letter, I’m going to show you why I’m revisiting this. Please read on:
Listen up folks. Most of you have lives to live, and jobs to go to, and life that keeps you busy. My job, is to watch markets, and ANYTHING that can at some point be a cause for me to go long or short a trade. Which means that I spend countless hours reading news, but not just news about this company or that oil discovery. No, I read news about virtually everything. And I don’t want to sound boastful, it’s not my intent. But I see more “on the ground” news that 95% of you.
I don’t spend the bulk of my time reading the vomit that’s regurgitated out of the main stream media. They don’t cover the things that I consider to be important. What’s important to me, boils down to a few basic things. Did something happen politically that can affect the market? Did something happen globally that can affect the market? Is anything happening “socially” that I should be aware of? Is there anything going on that’s going to affect me in my personal life?
Those are the things that get the bulk of my attention. So, when I see “Antifa” thugs creating protests in Seattle, throwing rocks and bottles and smoke grenades, and physically attacking other people, yeah, I want to know about it. Likewise, when I see the hysterical left, going moonbat crazy over things that shouldn’t even get a mention, I want to know about it. When I see over 100 people shot in Chicago over the July 4th weekend, I want to know of it.
About a week ago, a guy and his camera man from “campus reform” went around asking college students a “set up” question. Despite the fact that Trump had not yet picked a Supreme Court nominee, they went up to random College kids and asked this question “Now that Donald Trump has announced his Supreme Court pick, do you have any issues with his choice?”
Remember now, this was a WEEK before Trump announced his pick. One after the other proclaimed that his pick was “horrible”. The selected justice was “homophobic, Xenophobic,, will set the US back decades, doesn’t understand women’s issues, was wrong about the borders, etc. etc”
Each and every one of these kids were giving an opinion on a person that didn’t exist. One went so far as to say she had discussed the pick with her father and they decided this person was terrible. What does that say to you? What does it say when “some” of the next generation of college grads, are willing to immediately jump to the “liberal” defense mentality, when it hadn’t happened yet. They were all willing to LIE, on camera, about how bad the choice was. It hadn’t happened yet.
Speaking of not knowing yet, Did you know that the left had protest signs already printed up with all 4 of Trumps most possible picks on them, before he even announced the winner? They certainly did. They were going to be outraged no matter who it was.
Okay, so that’s just some left wing snowflakes, who have bought so heavily into the liberal narrative, that anything that any Republican could possibly suggest, is immediately trash, No good, Horrible at least. But then we have the confrontational situations. These are the things that are really raising my eyebrows.
A few days ago, a couple youths were in a late night eatery. One of them had a “MAGA” hat on. A man came up to them, snatched the hat off his head, tossed a softdrink in his face and said “You ain’t supportin shit”. Then he walked out with the kids hat, mumbling that it would look good in his fireplace.
Here’s where I’m going with this. You might have seen or heard of that event, because it did get some nationwide coverage, and the idiot was eventually arrested. But what you DON’T know is that these sort of skirmishes are happening on a daily basis, and being hidden from the airwaves. I have twitter feeds that show it. Facebook feeds that show it. But you know it is very pervasive when something as mainstream as Investors Business Daily runs an article. Consider this:
Angry Opposition: Every day brings new examples of the supposedly open-minded, inclusive, tolerant, peace-loving left threatening or attacking Trump administration officials or Trump supporters. Hatred and intolerance has been standard operating procedure on the extreme left. But thanks to enablers among Democrats and the press, it’s quickly becoming dangerously “mainstream.”
On Friday, Martin Astrof went to the campaign headquarters of Rep. Lee Zeldin, and then threatened to kill Zeldin and Trump supporters generally, according to news accounts of the incident. As he left, he nearly ran over a campaign staffer with his car.
An angry Trump critic allegedly punched a homeowner in Boynton Beach, Fla., for having a Trump flag in his front yard, and then dragged the homeowner 30 feet while driving away.
Brandon Straka — a gay former liberal who posted a video complaining that “the Left devolved into intolerant, inflexible, illogical, hateful, misguided, ill-informed, un-American, hypocritical, menacing, callous, ignorant, narrow-minded, and at times blatantly fascistic behavior and rhetoric” and sparked the #walkaway Twitter trend — says a local camera store refused to serve him. Thereby proving his point.
258? Multiply that by 10. Or 20. Or 500. This is real, and it’s happening folks. Now the question is “Why should you care?” Because If you are not a deranged liberal snowflake, then your opinion about how things should be, is a threat to them. They hate you. They want to hurt you. I am NOT joking.
