There is no appeasing the mob

There is no appeasing the mob

Last week after rioters stormed CNN’s Atlanta headquarters, I said that the mob can’t be controlled.  Sure, you may celebrate when the mob goes after people you hate.  But eventually the mob will turn on you.  It’s the nature of the beast.  There’s no controlling the mob and there’s no appeasing it either.

If you think appeasing the mob will spare you of its wrath, you clearly haven’t a single clue how the mob mentality works.

As Ann Coulter put it in her 2011 book “Demonic:”

Everything else changes, but mobs are always the same. A mob is an irrational, childlike, often violent organism that derives its energy from the group. Intoxicated by messianic goals, the promise of instant gratification, and adrenaline-pumping exhortations, mobs create mayhem, chaos and destruction, leaving a smoldering heap of wreckage for their leaders to climb to power.

When you don’t understand what the mob is, you foolishly believe appeasing it will somehow keep you safe.

If you want the perfect example of the foolishness of appeasing the mob, there is no better case study than this video that went viral on social media last week:

There is no appeasing the mob. Not ever. And no amount of “We’re on your side!” makes a damn bit of difference.

Showing “solidarity” or voicing support doesn’t change the nature of the mob.

This is why I have nothing but disdain for the gullible saps that are bending a knee and groveling for forgiveness from Black Lives Matter.

Black Lives Matter isn’t a grassroots movement seeking equal justice under the law.  It is an anarchy movement seeking the destruction of our civil society.  Its objective is chaos and revenge.  It is, in short, the anodyne façade of a radical, uncontrollable mob.

What has spared the so-called “Black Lives Matter” movement from scrutiny can be summed up in one word: Fear.

As I said in my column “You gullible saps,” “if you’re afraid of what might happen to you if you don’t bend a knee, take that as a gigantic clue that this is not a peaceful and well-meaning movement.”

Black Lives Matter is about intimidation, not “justice” or “equality.”

The Black Lives Matter movement is the biggest con ever perpetrated on this country.

It is an anarchy movement cloaked in “racial justice.” Why would you bother trying to appease it?

As Michael Walsh puts it in his column “The Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution Arrives in America” at the Epoch Times:

But this is always the totalitarian way, from the French Revolution to the Bolshevik Revolution to Mao’s Cultural Revolution. The world must be born anew.

Accordingly, we now hear calls to defund and even disband police departments, not just in Minneapolis but all over the country. The lie that police are waging a war on black men has finally stuck, but that hasn’t stopped the BLM forces from defacing the Boston monument honoring the all-black 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry Regiment which fought with distinction in the Civil War, its heroics memorialized in the 1989 film “Glory.”

In sum, the United States has descended into a particular hell of self-loathing in which no idea is too ridiculous, and that the pace of “change”—by which they mean destruction—must ever quicken until (as all Leftist revolutions always do), the show trials begin, Robespierre goes to the guillotine, Trotsky gets an axe in his head, Madame Mao gets arrested, and Ceaușescu gets stood up against a wall and shot.

The Left calls this “reform.” But it’s not. It’s revolution. Just as they tried to do half a century ago, they mean to destroy the country—“by any means necessary,” as their slogan goes. Will we let them?

Well, apparently a lot of Americans are willing to let them. Why else are so many appeasing them?

This is what sports franchises, corporations, Hollywood, universities, the news media, Democrat politicians (including a Presidential candidate), and even some Republican politicians are bending over backwards to appease.

Why?  Because this anarchy movement is cleverly shrouded in the veneer of “Black Lives Matter.”

And you don’t disagree with that sentiment do you?  Only a racist would disagree with the idea that black lives matter.

That’s how they get you. It’s a con.

And every single individual, corporation, media outlet and university is either in on the con or is one of the many gullible dupes that’s getting conned.

There is no appeasing the mob.

And while you drop to your knees, they’re busy destroying our history, our culture, our traditions, our Constitution and our way of life.

In short, BLM wants to destroy America. That’s not a bug; that’s the feature.

When the Wuhan virus first erupted here in the US, I pointed out that the Chinese Communists were exploiting our PC culture as a way to mask their culpability for a worldwide pandemic.  They quickly couched any criticism of the CCP as “racist.”  And it worked like a charm. The media quickly hopped aboard – as did some politicians.  Because nothing silences the Truth quite like screeching “RACISM!!!”

The same thing is happening now with this far-Left anarchy movement seeking to overthrow our civil society.  It’s exactly why it is being disguised by something innocuous-sounding like “Black Lives Matter.”

Because nothing silences opposition to a radical revolution quite like screeching “Black Lives Matter!”

And while radical Leftists like Antifa are getting all the negative scrutiny, the fact is, the Black Lives Matter movement is no different from Antifa.  But BLM is shielded from criticism because in our PC culture criticizing it means you are a de facto racist.

See how they do it?

They even suckered in that oafish fool from Utah by way of Massachusetts.

No, Kamala.

What we need is more people willing to stand up and speak the truth – the Black Lives Matter movement is a con to force Americans into appeasing anti-American revolutionaries hell bent on destroying this country.  And they won’t be satisfied until all of us are trampled under their feet.

Kamala probably knows this.  But she believes herself to be (as Ann Coulter described it in the quote above) one of those “leaders” who can now climb the smoldering heap of wreckage to power.

There is no appeasing the mob because even the most ideologically-aligned “allies” will fall victim to their rage – as the City of Seattle is learning right now.

When you permit a mob to run rampant across your city, across your state and across the country, eventually none of us will ever be spared.

None of us.  And that includes the fools and dupes appeasing the Black Lives Matter movement today.

So I ask the same question Michael Walsh asked above: Will we let them?

On a side note: I just watched this fantastic video by Bill Whittle.  You might have seen it already.  But if you haven’t, take the time to watch it.

    They didn’t break in to the Seattle City Hall. The human stain and socialist council member Kshama Sawant unlocked it with her key and let them in.

      And in their “Autonomous Zone” they have already run out of food as the homeless people they let in took it all!

    Today is my 77th birthday. I’ve seen a lot. Trust me – THIS TIME IT’S DIFFERENT. I am ashamed to see so many virtue-preening morons walking around. I am ashamed to see so many people rolling over and following orders from the various governments. It feels like East Germany. I’m happy, healthy and optimistic but I must say again – THIS TIME IT’S DIFFERENT.
    Will someone please show me one (1) example of SYSTEMIC RACISM in America today? Are people incapable of separating truth from lies? It looks like government “education” has fulfilled their mission – two generations of people too dumb to pour water out of a boot if the instructions were on the heel!
    God Bless Our President.

      We say this time it’s different every time, don’t we, tom? Watts, Ferguson, the Occupy movement, and now the Black Lives Matter National Inventory Clearance Sale.

      “Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose”. That’s French for “same shit, different day”.

    We have an irreconcilable difference in Weltanschauungen. Everything is different – language, values, morals, role of government, character, goals, responsibilities, gender dysphoria, faith, right, wrong. Simply put, those on the Left are twisted freaks who hate America. Communication, reaching across the aisle, as the fools in DC call it, is not possible. Will this current calamity end with a bang or a whimper? I haven’t a clue.

    “The Black Lives Matter movement is the biggest con ever perpetrated on this country.”
    Considering the scope of the three-year impeachment efforts by Democrats, one might say the second biggest.

    What do BLM and ANTIFA actually do? Anything constructive? Or is just showing up to riot the raison d’etre? Are there home offices? Any connections to Soros et al? There is evil in the background.

    I believe our President is meeting with sane adults and making plans to deal with evil. Remember, every rat in the Washington DC Cartel HATES HIM. Stay tuned. This could turn interesting.

    Absolutely correct – there is no appeasement. Large numbers of these “movement members” have no concept of what / why they are doing what they’re doing. Most of them have never suffered or had to be self reliant; skills necessary to exist in a “socialist utopia”. They are simply pawns for the power greedy Democrats and those of great wealth controlling them. And, it appears that they may feel as though they have the upper hand. I tend to agree with Sir Tom to a degree. In my 70-years I, too, have seen great change but, this time it does feel different. This time the only thing that will stop the madness will be brute force. States and cities controlled by Democrats have not attempted to stop the violence, they have encouraged it. They have added fuel to the fire. And, regular people who try to be good citizens in these areas are suffering greatly, losing their businesses, their jobs and their homes. The day is rapidly approaching when these people will cease to tolerate being abused by the “protestors” and take matters into their own hands. Additionally, when that day comes, those politicians responsible for allowing this to happen will not be excluded from the wrath of those good citizens. In fact, they will become targets of that wrath. It is indeed sad that our nation has found itself in such a situation. However, any living being has it’s breaking point and will exercise his survival instinct with vigor.

    Maybe we could avoid global war if we divided up Poland…again.
