(Note: I find the recent goings-on with Patreon to be extremely significant, but it’s recently come to my attention that it’s an issue largely unknown to people who, unlike me, do not spend too much time on YouTube watching those concerned with the “Intellectual Dark Web.” There will be a lot of links in this […]

Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Do Some in the Far Left Take Pleasure in Violence?

 

It’s clear that many of the gutless wonders or calculating members of Congress, the Left-leaning media, and those who are indoctrinating young minds in academia are deliberately characterizing intimidation, mob behavior, and occasionally violence as “speech.” At the same time, they claim that speech from conservatives is “violence” … a glaring example of Orwellian “doublespeak”. Silence to condemn mob violence should be considered assent especially from those who are routinely before the public and on the airwaves. Making excuses for it, as some in the political and media class have done by declaring that Republicans who voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh (Senate Majority Leader McConnell being the chief offender) have brought it upon themselves and is reminiscent of the charge that America itself was really to blame for the attack on 9/11 and the nearly 3,000 lives lost.

If you think I exaggerate, give a listen to former left-leaning Prof. Janet Fiamengo (University of Ottawa) in this interview with Dave Rubin. At about 16 minutes into the interview, Professor Fiamengo’s references one of the pivotal moments that occurred in her academic career that forced her to completely reevaluate her ideological outlook when she describes the “barely contained vaunting pleasure” of her fellow academics at the University of Saskatchewan when they first learned of the 9/11 attack on New York and Washington, DC.
