Helen: Kane will be a dead man in half an hour and nobody’s gonna do anything about it. And when he dies, this town dies too. I can feel it.

Woman in Church: I can’t listen to anymore of this. What’s the matter with you people? Don’t you remember when a decent women couldn’t walk down the street in broad daylight? Don’t you remember when this wasn’t a fit place to bring up a child? How can you sit here and talk and talk like this?

High Noon 1952

Of all of the virtues that a person can have the primary one is courage, because without that virtue of courage no other virtue will endure and a great sign of courage is the willingness to stand tall.

Judge Kavanaugh could have pulled out, history shows that if he had the left would have left him alone in the DC Circuit.  He would still make important decisions and arguments that would be presented to the Supreme Court.  He and his children would still have a comfortable life.

But that easy way out is not for a man of courage and Judge Kavanaugh has courage:

There is now a frenzy to come up with something—anything—that will block this process and a vote on my confirmation from occurring. These are smears, pure and simple. And they debase our public discourse. But they are also a threat to any man or woman who wishes to serve our country,” Kavanaugh wrote. “Such grotesque and obvious character assassination — if allowed to succeed — will dissuade competent and good people of all political persuasions from service. As I told the Committee during my hearing, a federal judge must be independent, not swayed by public or political pressure. That is the kind of judge I will always be.  I will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process   The coordinated effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out.  The vile threats of violence will not drive me out.  The last minute character assassination will not drive me out”

A lesser man would have cut and run, and plenty of Senators, like the people in the courtroom scene in High Noon would have been very happy if he did, both red state Democrats who will have to campaign on defending or denouncing these two bit smears which will anger voters they need to win, and GOP rinos who fear the left and media.  They would have been happy if Kavanaugh would just go away.

I suspect he won’t because he recognizes the left’s tactics for what they are.  It’s what I saw in 2016

This is about tricking you into letting go of your one chance to stop your own destruction.  They want you to lose your nerve. Furthermore they want the GOP to lose their nerve and the press will do all they can do enable it.

and it’s what some folks like Rod Dreher are only now grasping:

The left will stop at nothing to destroy this man. Three years ago, a friend who defected in the 1960s from Hungary told me that he and his wife, also a defector, are observing that our public culture reminds them more and more of Hungary at the advent of communism. I asked him to explain what he meant. He told me that the ideologically-driven eagerness to destroy people that the Left identifies as its enemies is the essence of it. He said that they will say anything they need to say, even if it’s untrue, to professionally and personally destroy people.

I wondered in 2015, when he told me that, if he was exaggerating. I don’t doubt it at all now. Not after this.

These people must be fought and Kavanaugh is making this fight not only for the sake of the next judge in line, but is taking it for the sake of a lot of people and for the sake of every woman who has a son.  Dreher again:

Tonight I had a business call with someone who lives in one of the bluest parts of America. She mentioned that this Kavanaugh business terrifies her for her sons. The idea that a man could be destroyed because of these accusations infuriates her and makes her afraid. I think that many on the Left are not thinking about the fact that women have daughters, yes, but they also have sons, brothers, and husbands.

He understands if these people aren’t fought bravely in the court of public opinion it will eventually reach the point where they have to be fought with firearms.  Judge Kavanaugh isn’t just saving his name or the hide of the next judge.  He’s saving lives.  I’ll give the last word to John Wayne in Big Jake (1971)

I hate secrets, never knew one to be kept They’ve all heard what’s in that red box, and they all want it. what we’re doin’ by this audacious display is tellin’ ’em they can’t have it. Hell, we may be savin’ some poor miscreant soul’s life by doing this. Maybe even our own.

220 lb Sociopath Thug: AAAAAAAAAAAA!

Batman, The Dark Knight Returns #2 1986

I think the Harvey Weinstein left have no understanding what they have just done when it comes to Brett Kavanaugh and Donald Trump so for the sake of their futures I’m going to explain it to them.

Imagine if you are a public figure, say a congressman, or judge or an established or rising star in media.

Now imagine for a second if a person with vast resources was willing to invest a large amount of money say $150,000 over the course of one year to research your life and find incidents that might destroy you as a public figure.

Imagine if there such a person willing to spend this money to hire private investigators to talk to every teacher, every high school classmate or sweetheart. To dig deep enough to find anything even slightly untoward, from a college party to a meeting with a colleague, to a weekend away. Imagine there was money to look up every person who had a grudge with you over the years who might have a different memory of events than you do and get such people to talk.

How well do you think you would stand up to this kind of scrutiny?

Now imagine that you know of such a person with the resources to do this to you if he so choose, furthermore imagine that this person you know has a reputation for being thin skinned about personal attacks and has a reputation for hitting back hard when someone goes after him.

Finally imagine that knowing all these things you spend two years demonizing said person, demonizing the people who work for him, condoning physical attacks on such a person and attempting to destroy the reputation of anyone who dares freely associate with him and doing so with the knowledge that during the time you are doing these things said person temporarily does not have access to his vast resources to retaliate.

What do you think will happen the day that he once again has access to said resources to spend as he sees fit? I think such a person just might decide to use said resources to take revenge on these folks.

Donald Trump will not be president forever, but when he leaves office either after a first term or a second he will once a again be a private citizen with vast resources at his disposal and a very long memory. Given how the Democrats and the media have treated him culminating with the current attack on Brett Kavanaugh what do you think the odds are that he decides to invest in such an enterprise? I think right now the odds favor it.

Given Trump’s billions it would be very possible for citizen Trump to dedicate $125 million dollars to such an enterprise. Based on my $125K per figure quote that I gave he could finance investigations of 1,000 such public figures. That would be enough to crawl up the ass of every sitting Democrat member of congress and every single sitting federal judge who was appointed by a democrat with money left over to include every single ABC, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, CBS television host who has gone after him and most if not all of the talking heads to boot.

Now normally an ex president doesn’t get involved in such things after leaving office but with the incredible attacks on him combined with Barack Obama breaking this tradition do you really think for one moment that Donald Trump will sit back and not take revenge on these people once he’s out of office, and remember he was deeply involved in many of them and likely has heard plenty of stories about these jokers to start with over the decades.

I think these people have no idea what they are going to unleash and if they are the slightest bit smart will start to reverse course or they will wish they were the thug from that Batman comic.

“I saved you,” cried that woman
“And you’ve bit me even, why?
You know your bite is poisonous and now I’m going to die”
“Oh shut up, silly woman,” said the reptile with a grin
“You knew damn well I was a snake before you took me in

Al Wilson.  The Snake 1968

In yesterday’s post I talked about the bullet that was dodged by the election of Trump, how if Hillary had been elected the practices of a partisan FBI and a partisan IRS would have become a permanent feature of the American system of government.

There is however one very important truth left out of this piece, something that hasn’t been given a whole lot of press but was alluded to by Matt Margolis at PJ Media

From the earliest days of the Obama administration, the Obama/Holder/Lynch Justice Department protected political allies from justice. A slam-dunk case of voter intimidation by the New Black Panther Party during the 2008 presidential election was inexplicably dropped, resulting in the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights declaring in the summer of 2010 that there was evidence of “possible unequal administration of justice” by the Justice Department. Obama also blocked a corruption probe that implicated former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid for bribery. He also illegally fired an inspector general who was investigating a friend and donor of Obama’s. Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder worked in concert to protect each other. Holder would stonewall congressional investigations into Obama administration corruption and Obama would assert executive privilege to keep damaging information away from the eyes of investigators, such as crucial documents in the Fast and Furious investigation.

The Obama Justice Department also targeted Obama’s enemies. When conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza was prosecuted for making $20,000 in straw donations to a friend’s U.S. Senate campaign, many legal experts saw it as partisan selective prosecution, including liberal Harvard Law School professor and Obama supporter Alan Dershowitz. James O’Keefe, the founder of Project Veritas, was placed on a terrorist watch list in order to limit his international travel after posting a viral video showing himself dressed like a terrorist crossing back forth over the U.S. border with Mexico to demonstrate the horrible state of our nation’s border security.

Given that Barack Obama was an inexperienced Chicago Pol who came from a Corrupt Chicago System and sponsored by an actual terrorist (Bill Ayers) the idea that such a person would weaponize government in the Chicago style is not a surprise and govern as such. Unfortunately it was also not a surprise that the media was not going to let facts proclaim the 1st Black President a failure:

he can NOT be allowed to be portrayed as a failure no matter what happens in Iraq, no matter what happens in Syria, no matter what happens in the economy and no matter how many people have given up on finding work.

Most of those things are self-evident and the media can choose to not discuss it or spin it but that can’t really be hidden from the people.

or worse a corrupt failure

But the media understands what the developments in the IRS scandal means, and they can’t investigate, because if they do then the results of their investigations might reveal what many on the right suspect, that Barack Obama & his administration is involved in this up to his ears.

If the media had held Barack Obama to the same standard they had held George W Bush he might not have been emboldened to treat Government against his enemies and those in the FBI might have thought twice before doing what they did.

Of course expecting the media to hold Barack Obama to the standard of a Bush would be like expecting Barack Obama and his Chicago cronies to behave as something other than the corrupt Chicago pols they were.

That is to expect the impossible

Update: Great minds and all that

There are a lot of opinions on the IG report this week concerning Comey and company from a lot of people more prominent than me and while I’m feeling a tad lonely and melancholy today with my son and wife at work I’m not inclined to debate the issue on twitter although I will quote the single best advice for those trying to make up their mind about it which came, surprisingly from a rather strident liberal.

This is of course why one should always do when confronted by such things but while you are reading and pondering this report and if the FBI had a hand on the scales there is a totally different consideration that should be going through your head, one that should be the first thing that comes to your mind as you read the FBI report.

If Hillary is elected all this behavior is not only rewarded but normalized in government forever.

This is not a new consideration, it’s something I’ve written about before concerning the IRS scandal

This is , in my opinion, the most important factor in the upcoming election. It’s very clear that this administration is not going to punish anyone for this and I guarantee you that if the next president is Hillary Clinton not only will nobody punished but do you really believe that given the power of the white house behind her a president Hillary Clinton will not do the same?

And it was illustrated by more than just the IRS scandal as noted here:

Carlos Henriquez didn’t pull out of his race at the time of his arrest because he understood that even with the war on woman being the theme of the 2012 election and one of the most prominent female candidates in the country running in his state,  the media, local state & national would ignore it.  He remains in his seat because he understands that even with his conviction for actually assaulting a women the media will never find his story more interesting than Mike Huckabee saying the word: “libido”

The administration appointed a political friend and donor to investigate itself on a critical scandal because they understood  that the national media would not press the issue or report on a story they had ignored for months on end.

The Senator and his office feels themselves free to attempt to pressure his state to change it’s reported numbers because they understood that the media would not press them nor nor keep a close eye on any investigation that might come.

and that’s also why The Governor & his administration felt fee to stack the investigating committee of  a prominent member of his political party because it is their understanding that while the story has broken today it will not go far and will certainly not go national.

That’s why I endorsed Trump a bit before the GOP convention because the danger to the republic in general and to conservatives in particular was astounding.

I think the breaking point is near, I think there are a lot of people in this country who are deciding that the Government is openly hostile to them.  I think that the sight of women and gay men being beaten by leftists because they support the presumptive GOP nominee, having it happen in full sight of police ordered to do nothing AND SEEING THOSE OFFICERS CHOOSING TO LET THEM BE BEATEN means that they can not count on the authorities to obey their oaths of office if they think doing so might cost them their jobs.

Even worse than this is the obvious question it raises: If leftists are willing to resort to violence and boast about it before an election when it might hurt their ability to persuade the people to vote for them, how much more willing will they be to violently suppress their political foes when such behavior is rewarded with electoral victory by the people?

What will that tell a populace that has already been arming itself nonstop for the last 4-6 years?

and why I re-endorsed him at the time of the Bush tape.

Right now a lot of people are forgetting that for good or I’ll the only thing standing between us and the financial, military, security, cultural and constitutional rights disaster that a Hillary Clinton administration would be is Donald Trump.

People are in panic and when the line is breaking someone has to pick up the flag and shout “FORWARD”. And if it costs some me some readers then so be it.

Before the election I suspected that the election of Hillary meant the end of civil liberties for the right and maybe even eventual civil war.  With the IG report this is, in my opinion no longer speculation but something that is now clearly established.

Thank God she lost.

…because if he hadn’t practiced it he would be dead instead of the female hostage he traded himself for during an Islamic Terror Attack in France:

Many of the potential hostages managed to escape but Lakdim kept one woman behind. At that point, Lt-COl Arnaud Beltrame offered to exchange himself for the female hostage as negotiations to end the standoff continued. He entered the supermarket unarmed but left his cell phone on nearby, allowing police to hear what was going on inside. When police heard gunshots, the French equivalent of SWAT stormed the supermarket and killed Lakdim. Beltrame, who had been both shot and stabbed, eventually succumbed to his injuries.

Arnaud was honored for his bravery and sacrifice by his own family as well as French President Emmanuel Macron and UK Prime Minister Theresa May. 

Ever notice how the left and media always find Masculinity “toxic” or “bad” until there is a crisis or danger and then when lives are in danger it suddenly is of value?

Bottom line the culture of the media/democrat left is a lie and has been for years from their attack on masculinity to their astroturf protests this weekend, it’s all based on a lie which is why even Cardinal Dolan has finally had enough of the Democrats.

I’m a pastor, not a politician, and I’ve certainly had spats and disappointments with politicians from both of America’s leading parties. But it saddens me, and weakens the democracy millions of Americans cherish, when the party that once embraced Catholics now slams the door on us.

That’s not hyperbole, either. As Dolan notes, DNC chair Tom Perez declared last year that pro-life candidates no longer have a place in the Democratic Party. Their VP nominee in 2016, Tim Kaine, ran as a Catholic who supported his running mate’s determination to get rid of the prohibition on the use of federal funds for abortions. From the HHS contraception mandate to demands to get rid of RFRA laws (the first of which was signed by Bill Clinton), Democrats have been on the march to drive all expressions of religious faith from the public square, mocking it as “bigotry” while demanding silence of Catholics and other people of faith. For the past decade or more, Democrats have tried to redefine freedom of religious expression to “freedom of worship,” confining it to the four walls of the church, chapel, synagogue, and temple.

Cripes Cardinal some of us figured that out decades ago and explained it publicly as far back as 2010

Pam Geller via Dimensional bliss

Pam and those like her bring up uncomfortable truths and for that they will be forever hated.

Fiver shrugs and the silence of the Warren DaTechGuy Blog December 29th 2011

The primary virtue is courage, because without it all other virtues are quickly abandoned under pressure and Pam Geller is a woman of courage. She has persisted in warning of the Dangers of radical Islam and highlighting said dangers to a world that would like to pretend painful realities are not taking place playing Jeremiah to the west and like Jeremiah these warning have come with a high cost in terms of her personal safety. Other people get death threats, Pam Geller (and friend Robert Spencer) get actual attempts on their lives:

A Massachusetts man was convicted [in October 2017] of plotting to behead conservative blogger Pamela Geller and kill other Americans on behalf of the Islamic State group.
Jurors found David Wright guilty of all charges, including conspiracy to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization and conspiracy to commit acts of terrorism transcending national boundaries. . . .
Prosecutors said Wright, his uncle and a third man conspired to kill Geller because they were upset she organized Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest in Texas in 2015. During the contest, two other men opened fire outside and wounded a security guard before they were killed in a shootout with law enforcement assigned to guard the event.

There was a time of course when an attempt on an American’s life for exercising 1st amendment rights would unite all Americans in outrage, just as there was once a time when the American press would have been outraged that an American Citizen like Molly Norris would have to go into hiding after a fatwa was put out against her (she remains in hiding under an assumed name to this day) but just as the media ignored the threats against one of their own, after Garland Terrorist attack the reaction of the media was to blame Pam for daring to upset those who wanted her dead.

Mind you ISIS itself boasted they had specifically targeted Geller saying:

“sent its Lions to achieve [Geller’s] slaughter.”

But no matter, the left hates Pam for telling the truth more than they hate ISIS so as far as they were concerned It was her own damn fault.  That’s why

Which brings us to the Daily beast story that I haven’t had the time to deal with until now.

Pam has four daughters who I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting. Until a few days ago I had no knowledge of them beyond that fact but now apparently the left has decided they need more attention.

You see they apparently had a show on Instagram called “The Morning Breath and once the daily beast found out that the hosts of this popular show were Pam daughters that just couldn’t stand.

So the beast outed them and very quickly the network carrying their show cancelled it, the companies sponsoring the popular show abandoned them and even their agents dropped them.

Supposedly this is over tweets made at the age of 16 but I say there is a different reason.

Fear.

You see these sponsors understand that if it is known that they are sponsoring Pam’s Children makes them targets.  After all the same jihadists who have been unsuccessful so far in killing Pam will likely target her children considering them a softer target but and even softer target than them might be the various advertisers or even the studio that hosts them.

The line for public consumption is this is all about “bigotry”.  It’s really all about self preservation.

That’s why I think Stacy McCain is slightly off in his statement although he put it well.

No one should be deceived by the Left’s propaganda. Any conservative who is hesitant to defend Pamela Geller (they think she is “extremist” or whatever) is a fool. The reason Geller is under attack is because she is effective and influential, especially in exposing the Left’s sordid de facto alliance with radical Islam. Geller is a ferocious fighter, and we cannot afford to lose her. If we let the Left silence our most powerful voices, what shall become of the rest of us? Who will defend our right to free speech?

Like I keep saying, people need to wake the hell up.

He’s right about a defacto alliance between radical Islam and the left in the sense that Christianity is a common target, but I submit what it’s really about is the sponsors and the daily beast and all the rest operating under the “I don’t have to outrun the bear, I just have to outrun you” theory of survival.  It’s full tilt narcissism, why bother to fight radical Islam, defend women overseas oppressed by it, screen for possible terrorists coming in or even try to stop the radicalization of Muslims here in the US or even argue against Sharia law.  Hell these Muslim folks might even be the ticket for my party to regain power.  By the time Islam is able to affect my life negatively I’ll be long dead. So let my political enemies take these risks defending America for the sake of their country and children and if these fools who I hate anyways die at their hands, so much the better.

I believe the Daily Beast did this not because they disbelieve in the threat of radical Islam as they claim, but because they do.

In my opinion that’s why the Daily Beast had no compunction about outing Pam’s Daughters because as far as the left in general and they in particular are concerned, if they are murdered by the same Islamist terrorists that have targeted their mother, that’s a bug not a feature.

This tweet alas remains true

And now the song that we all need when liberals give us their holier than thou BS(Sung to the tune of Dixie)

The Harvey Weinstein Liberal Pervado song or :  Look Away

Oh, Way out West in Hollywood City,
Harvey Weinstein liked ’em oh so pretty
Look away, look away, look away Liberal Land.

For 30 years he set upon ’em,
Promised them roles that led to Oscars,
Look away, look away, look away liberal Land.

But Democrats got millions, Hooray! Hooray!
For progressive causes he came through
He ponied up, so they let him screw.
away, away, so they could do what’s best
look away, look away, What’s one girl more or less?

♫ Planned Parenthood it had a gala
& Harvey was their favorite fella
They Looked away, Looked away Looked away
Liberal Land ♫ 

♫ He sat with Hillary, ole Bill’s striker
next to him, Harvey was a piker
They looked away, looked away looked away
Liberal land 

 So liberal men feared nothing,
Hooray! Hooray!
Old Bill & Harvey got a pass
So Conyers dropped Trou and Franken grabbed ass
All day, all day, without media oversight
They looked away, away, Because they voted right. 

 ♫ So silence was the media rule
As long has Hollywood came through
Look away, look away, look away, media land

  Talk Magazine got Harvey’s adoption
And press they got their own script options
and Looked away! Looked away! Looked away!
media Land.   

  They killed off any story
each day, each day
They kept out of the public eye
The foibles of these liberal guys
Away away, there would not be a peep
No one would say, that these guys were all creeps  

♫ Before them all there was ole Ted
Who left that lady cold and dead
Look away, look away , look away liberal land
To not one was a question posed
(Though they all sat with Charlie Rose)
Look away look away look away liberal land 

♫ Then Trump won the election
No Way! No Way!
And just like that the dam it broke
Where once was silence victims spoke
away away, all of it was exposed
each day, each day another story broke 

 At CBS worked Charlie Rose
Who liked to take off all his clothes
Look away, look away look away liberal land.
At the NYT There was no rush
To part ways with their man Glenn Thrush
Look away look away look away liberal land  

At NBC was Halpren
No way, no way
And once all of the stories blew
We found that everybody knew
All day, all day, The press had no regrets
They dared not say, they had their own secrets 

♫S o when media or libs do lecture
That they stand as all girls protectors
Turn away, turn away, turn away from liberal land
Note they cared not for a women’s plight
With predators checks and votes in sight
Go away, go away go away liberal band 

 ♫ And feminists stayed silent, just say, just say
You tell them all where they can go
If on you they try to impose
Away away, back to their devil den.
Away Away You won’t be fooled again 


I know I left out plenty of liberal donors et/ all from the lyric but this song is already long enough as it is.

An interesting followup to yesterday’s post suggesting that if Hillary Clinton had won in 2016 Harvey Weinstein would not today be exposed as the man he has been for years.

Two days ago just as I arrived for work Red Sox left fielder Andrew Benintendi hit a two run homer off of Astro Ace Justin Verlander making his first relief appearance ever giving the Sox a 3-2 lead in the bottom of the fifth of game 4 of their series. I walked in smiling and when I told my lead the score, at he confidently predicted an Astro win so we bet a candy bar on the result.

Yesterday I was running late and found myself, thanks to Houston’s late comeback rushing into Shaw’s in Leominster to buy the bar to pay off that bet. I found myself stuck in a line behind a woman who was visiting her daughter who had just had her first child. The conversation in the line and with the cashier was Trump vs Mexico. At this point I interjected, “Well consider this, if Donald Trump isn’t elected there is no way that Harvey Weinstein is exposed by the NYT as he was a vital ally and fund raiser for Hillary Clinton.” The cashier agreed that this was true but the woman ahead of me had a slightly different take, while she agreed with my premise she stated quite emphatically: “Still isn’t worth it.”

Given that Mr. Weinstein preyed on woman (which she was) I found that opinion interesting and as I was leaving it hit me that not only would her daughter be of the age that Weinstein would go after but there is no reason to believe that if that new grandchild of hers wanted a career in movies a Harvey Weinstein or someone like him, would in 15-18 years be making the same demands on her if she wanted to get ahead in the business.

This is how crazy the left has become, a liberal women so dislikes Trump that she would have been willing to not only let Weinstein’s crime be unexposed and unpunished but would have been OK with him being allowed to obtain new victims for the sake of keeping him Trump of the White House.

So for those who you Hate Trump but are outraged over Weinstein I have two questions for you:

Would the price of Weinstein never being exposed have been worth it to you if it meant Hillary Clinton beating Donald Trump in 2016?

If the answer to the first question is yes: At what number of new women victimized by Mr. Weinstein would that price become too high?

I think these two question really give this story the perspective it deserves don’t you and I’d love to see a roving reporter asking these question to a bunch of women’s studies majors at liberal universities across the nation wouldn’t you?

I’ll give the last word to Thomas Wictor


As I have no sexual secrets of rich liberals to keep for a price I have to make my buck by going places and doing interviews all the time hoping people like it enough to pay for it.

When I spoke at the Friday Morning Group a few weeks ago I was preceded by Dianna Ploss formerly of the Trump Campaign now the new head of the Boston Chapter of Act For America

She was talking about her Sept 9th event that unfortunately was going to conflict with my Stacy McCain in Leominster, I say was because that event is a casualty of Boston.

ACT for America is canceling its America First Rallies, previously scheduled for Saturday, September 9, “out of an abundance of caution” due “to the recent violence in America and in Europe.” The national security organization will instead replace the 67 rallies organized across 36 states with an online “Day of ACTion.”
In a press release, exclusively given to Breitbart News, event organizers say the reason for making the difficult decision “is to contribute to the de-escalation of rising tension and violence in America while pursuing the organization’s goal of a safe and secure America.”

This was the real goal of the tactics of ANTIFA and the media, to silence and marginalize effective opposition voices. That this has happened is a national disgrace.

On the bright side, if you are a member of ACT Boston and are looking for something to do Saturday Sept 9th might I suggest you click here to join us for Stacy McCain event in Leominster, I would be proud to have you join us. You can get your tickets here.

There were quite a few people who came out winners from the events of Boston Common.  Today we’re going to list those who earned honorable (or dishonorable) mentions and the 1st and 2nd runners-up in that pageant:

Honorable (or Dishonorable) Mentions

Mayor Marty Walsh:  He was able to play up his credentials not only as an opponent of the President, and a denouncer of hate,  but his decision to deploy rather than stand down police allowed him to project an image of law and order without damage to his liberal credentials and, despite a few exceptions, the success of the Police in maintaining overall safety for people in the crowd (if you weren’t wearing an Israeli Flag, a Trump Banner or was a policeman) earned him national praise that might come in handy if he wants to progress to a senate seat or the governor’s chair.

Left wing fringe groups:  The various activist groups from ANSWER to the Socialist Workers et/al had a great day on Boston common.  Not only were they able to get the media and mayor to uncritically accept their premise that the speakers like Shiva Ayyadurai were Nazis and Klansmen, not only where they able to keep anyone from hearing what they actually said, they were able, because of the size of the crowd who arrived to oppose the unseen Nazis and Klan members, to give the impression of a much larger base of support than they actual have for their fringe political positions.

The News Media:  Their willingness to run with and sell the left whole “Nazi/White Supremacist Hoard descending on Boston” meme meant they were given a spectacle which provided them with days of copy and tons of coverage to attract eyeballs and thus advertisers. Even better for the media their success in selling the meme gives them a chance to deploy it any time a tea party group gets a permit from any city in Massachusetts.

2nd Runner up:  The Boston Police

The Boston Police was both a short term and a long term winners of events on the common. Despite Jeff Jacoby’s correct assessment concerning actual free speech, their highly visible presence at the event, their ability to prevent fatalities or serious injury combined with their willingness to be the primary target of the ANTIFA thugs violence, not only achieved their primary goal of avoiding a blood bath or serious riot, but rightly raised their stature both locally and nationally as a peace force.  Regular people, with nothing to do with professional activism, who turned up to oppose “nazis” were thanking police for keeping them safe and rightly so.

Sure there were State Police and Transit Police there as well but the City’s police force was the most visible and got the lions share of the attention and credit.

1st Runner up:  ANTIFA

I’m sorry to say ANTIFA was the 2nd biggest winner of the events on Boston Common for many reasons:

They were able to show numbers. The total amount of masked thugs was considerable which meant a pretty good show of muscle.

They were accepted and cheered by the crowd despite (or perhaps because of) their violent history against any who they consider their political opponents.

Because of the size of the crowd, the need for police to protect certain areas and people and the media’s disinterest they were able to get away with isolated acts of violence with impunity .

Although there were a small amount of folks arrested, you actually had incredible sight online of police asking ANTIFA thugs to “to refrain from throwing urine, bottles and other harmful projectiles at our officers.” as they ignored said request while berating and assaulting officers.  Perhaps next time they’ll be able to get the police to say “please”.

Like any group of actual fascists their real power is to intimidate far beyond their actual numbers.  Boston Common put that intimidation factor on display to those they wanted to keep in check.  I’m not just talking about City Mayors not wanting to blow their budgets on police details denying permits or venues and groups choosing to avoid public event due to fear of liability cost or physical violence.  I’m not even talking about the tiny group of speakers who would have been dwarfed even if the 100’s of ANTIFA folk never showed their face.

I’m talking about the successful display of physical power to their political allies on the left.  They were the real target.  Thanks to events on the common where ANTIFA was willing to take on police and show some muscle against their foes out of police sight, reporters who might consider a critical story, activists who might consider giving the other side a chance to speak and even regular people, particularly those not enamored with the 2nd amendment who might decide they agree with the President or the Tea Party on an issue or two will think twice before doing so thanks to the fear (rational or not) that their actions will prompt a visit from the folks wearing masks.

Finally all of this will attract the young stupid recruits that are the bread and meat for such Fascists, particularly from those who are rejected (didn’t the crowd show them support?) or fearful (Wouldn’t it be great to have a bunch of strong friends having your back?) or thuggish (didn’t they stand up to police even with the whole country watching?).  Boston was ANTIFA’s recruitment video for useful idiots and there are plenty of directionless and foolish teens and twenty somethings who will see it and come running.

As for the big winner from events in Boston, that’s tomorrow lead post.
