The next time an American wants to generalize and paint all police officers negatively, think about the viral image of Charlottesville police officer Darius Ricco Nash.
The kind of political violence we saw in Charlottesville this weekend is designed to force Americans to sort themselves into warring camps over two sets of losers.
The conflict between anti-fascists and fascists has been simmering for decades as they’ve been firing shots at each other and gathering recruits.
Are we just as racist and divided and barbaric as we were in Detroit, given recent events like Ferguson, Charlottesville, and Baltimore? Or have we made progress?
The old bigots are swiftly aging out of influence, while the already meager influence of the new racists, out of all proportion to the attention they have attracted, is continuing to wane.
Identity politics of any stripe is not conservatism. Both fascists and communists oppose the core principles of the political right.
The ominous warning of Charlottesville’s riots is that we are letting politics descend into a brutal, unprincipled brawl between two illiberal caricatures.
Middlebury College has mildly sanctioned students involved in attacking a professor and banging on car and building windows during a Charles Murray visit.
Middlebury College in Vermont says it had identified ‘more than 70 individuals’ who may have violated campus policies during a riot over social scientist Charles Murray’s presence.
The last 25 years of urban unrest in America, and around the world, show how rapidly domestic tranquility can collapse when law enforcement steps aside or is overwhelmed.
In a statement to the Washington Post, University of California-Berkeley spokesman Dan Mogulof described the cancellation as an effort ‘to keep students and the speaker herself safe.’
Those known as the ‘resistance’ are fundamentally and potentially irrevocably altering the norms of civil discourse rooted in the First Amendment.
The unhinged rhetoric, violent anti-speech street protests, and hysteria currently on display don’t make Trump look like he’s a unique threat.
It may be maddening to hear voices on the left support violent protests sometimes, and condemn it at other times. But there’s a method to this madness.
