Pikeville, Kentucky, Is Bracing For A Clash Between The Far Left And The Far Right
A white supremacist rally set for Saturday, and the expected left-wing response, has the town of Pikeville, Kentucky, population 7,038, under lockdown in anticipation of violence.

The rally, organized by Neo-Nazi groups National Socialist Movement, the Traditionalist Workers Party, and the National Front is scheduled for 2 p.m. ET Saturday. Left-wing groups from across the South are assembling a militant response.

Both the Far Left and the Far Right have issued calls online to gather in Pikeville and oppose the enemy with force.

psst-, Blake. National Socialists and the Workers Party aren’t exactly right-wing. This is — potentially; reports so far look like the town has successfully clued the folks in to behave — a clash between leftists who simply disagree on who gets to run your life.

And that “Laguna Beach Antifa” tweet? You probably should have checked out the account before using that example. Update: I mailed Montgomery 4/29/2017 at 11:42 AM. As of 12:48 PM, the column has been edited to remove that tweet. No acknowledgement of the edit listed on the page.)

For stuff like this:

And this: “…the protest in Pikeville is symbolic because it will be one of the first major confrontations in the South, a place where extremist groups like the KKK have long held sway…”

Seriously? Have you ever been to the South? It doesn’t look like you’re anywhere near old enough to remember when the KKK was more than a couple of old fat guys sitting around the local diner whining for the “good old days.”

UPDATE 2: I heard from Montgomery about an hour ago.

“Hi Bear,
Thanks for the correction. I’ve removed the tweet. Regarding Pikeville as a symbol, the Antifa I spoke to said those were the reasons they were going.”

Yep. He simply pulled the embarrassing tweet in hopes that no one else will notice. Regarding his blind acceptance of the peculiar claim that the KKK holds sway over the South, I replied:

Ah, yes. Professional protester Lacy Macauley from Washington, DC. Tell me, if you interviewed someone who said they were protesting climate change because the sky is neon orange with green polka dots, would you simply accept that statement without question?

Oh well, columns like yours that characterize clashes between  socialists and …. socialists as left vs. right are always amusing.

Bear

Perhaps Montgomery considers DC representative of the South. Only in the way that The Peoples Republik of Kalifornia and Wyoming are both Western. Still… if DC is “Southern,” and Macauley is thus a Southerner, shouldn’t he have expected her to be pro-KKK?

I’m afraid he’s merely a typical lefty “journalist” with no critical thinking or analytical skills, and happy in his progressive cognitive bias. It can’t even occur to him to question everything.

Please don’t vote, part 4

6th District vote: Fulton seeks to extend polling hours; DeKalb and Cobb smooth
Exasperated voters arrived at their typical polling locations only to find them empty. The cause? They’re in the 11th, or 5th, or 4th districts, none of which are on the ballot Tuesday.

Note that this is after a press release was issued explaining that this is only for residents of the 6th district.

No word whether Dimwit candidate Ossoff was one of those turned away.

Please don’t vote

You’re too freaking stupid.

Georgia special election is a Rorschach test for the Trump era
There stands Adriane Cooper, a Sandy Springs teacher wielding a “Vote Your Ossoff” placard and a chip on her shoulder from Donald Trump’s presidential win. She was drawn like a magnet to the Democratic newcomer who has put Tuesday’s special election to represent a swath of suburban Atlanta at the scorching center of the nation’s political debate.

This is the first time I’ve been old enough to vote against the people in charge, the people I don’t agree with,” the 25-year-old said. “And this is my way to channel that energy.” (emphasis added-cb)

You’re 25 years old, you moron. You’ve been old enough to vote since 2010. You’ve missed two general election cycles, two mid-term cycles, and who knows how special and local elections. If you meant this is the first time you vote against folks specifically “in charge” and with whom you disagree…

Your former Representative was Republican. Since you’re touting a Dem, I expect you probably would have disagreed with him. You were old enough to vote against him. You district has historically gone Republican; did you just this year suddenly turn Dim?

Don’t vote. You are either too damned ignorant, or too crazy.

No, it isn’t an assault rifle

But I wish I got misdeliveries like that. Heck, I don’t even find guns in the street

UPS Mistakenly Delivers Assault Rifle To LI Couple Instead Of Toy Plane
A Long Island couple was shocked to find an assault rifle delivered to their house — when in fact, they ordered a toy.

First, an assault rifle is a shoulder-fired long gun, chambered for an intermediate power cartridge, capable of selective fire (semi & auto).

That appears to be a Barret Model 95. (If I’m wrong, let me know.)

us-barret-model-95-bullpup

It’s a bolt action rifle. So it isn’t even capable of semi-automatic operation, much less full auto. And it’s chambered in .50 BMG which isn’t exactly “intermediate power.”

An assault rifle, it ain’t. But it’s black, so I suppose it’s evil in NY.

How dare he not follow all 17 million!

The lefty Trumpeing outrage is… well, I thought they’d hit rock bottom, but then they broke out the pickaxes.

Donald Trump has 17 million Twitter followers, follows 28 people in return
President-elect Donald Trump loves Twitter but clearly views it as a microphone rather than a tool for dialogue. He has more than 17 million followers and follows only 40 accounts in return. Of those 10 are properties or organizations he operates, three are media outlets, nine are friends or his family members, six are Trump campaign operatives or supporters, 11 are broadcasters and one is Vice President-elect Mike Pence.

Man, I quit Twitter even before I discovered that you’re legally obligated to follow everyone who follows you.

Hey… waitaminnit…

brett-twit-follow

Brett’s got over 13,000 twitterbots, dumbasses, and obligated family members followers. But she doesn’t follow all of them.

I think someone should sue her for breach of imaginary contract.

Wait’ll they see the REAL world

Apparently low-IQ SJW types with no sense of humor — but I repeat myself — are getting butthurt over the obviously-a-funny-as-hell joke “Fisher-Price Happy Hour Playset.”

happy-hour-playset

While folks of normal intelligence (and possessed of humor) are laughing our asses off at this, the snowflakes are whining to Fisher-Price, demanding they pull the nonexistent toy.

That’s hilarious in itself. But if they’re worried about that…

Lemme tell ya, in the real world, I gave a niece a for-real circular saw for Christmas once, and a two-year old got a power screwdriver for her birthday.

In case that didn’t give kids enough ideas, I’ve also presented children with The Dangerous Book for Boys and The Daring Book for Girls. Another kid got The Boy Electrician (which is… interesting enough that I included a warning myself).

Bwahahaha!

And that is WHY we mock you

Don’t mock liberals calling for gun control in wake of OSU attack
It is heartbreaking that 11 young people were injured in this incident, although I have not heard that any of their injuries are life-threatening. If the assailant had used a semi-automatic rifle, like the young (white, American) man in the church in South Carolina or the young (white, American) man in the theater in Colorado, we would be dealing with multiple deaths and dozens of injuries.

See? The moronic Landen says knife and vehicular injuries aren’t life threatening (which would come as a surprise to the CDC). And that if the asshole had used a “semi-automatic rifle” like Charleston’s asshole lots of people would have died.

Except the Charleston asshole didn’t use a semi-automatic rifle. He used a .45 caliber handgun, for which purchase he passed a background check.

And that, Ms. Landen, is why we ridicule you. You can’t get basic facts like weapons used, or laws in force, straight, and call for what already is while ignoring what isn’t.

You’re a dumbass.
