    What do you mean they wouldn't either tolerate it or help him? Isn't not helping him basically tolerating it?

    Or do you mean they wouldn't tolerate if they had been the victim?

    Just trying to clarify. Either way, chilling story, and a reminder that despite the precariousness of the present climate, it is possible for us to get better.

    It is also possible for us to get worse, and that is a consequence that has been studiously ignored by the media who feed us a steady diet of racial assault.

    Perhaps this local FBI office is pretending to fail?

    For what it's worth, these are the tactics our government has used in other countries to bring about regime change. Makes one wonder if rogue elements of our own government is behind this???
    Very interesting thank you for the info. I wouldnít doubt anything at this point!

    He’s talking about Tim Kennedy the NY state senator, lol. Clearly he’s talking out of his ass and didn’t listen to the podcast before commenting.

    I mean that no one would help him. That we all accepted it as ĒnormalĒ. We were racist, cowards, or both. Not uncommon through history.

    Other than the facts of the event, I'm speculating that we were more racist in 1975 then 2020 and more tolerant of racism. I lived in a moderate and liberal part of the country, other parts were far worse.

    Could you imagine the news play if that happens today?

    Yep. And also itís possible for the media and left to tell us weíve never improved, which is clearly a lie. I grew up in the south in the late 60s-80s. I donít think any scout troop I was in would ever do that because of race, but they would do it as general bullying (to anyone.)

    But I played sports with quite a few black kids that were my teammates and friends. We went to dinners and banquets as a team and did not naturally segregate because we were all teammates. I donít understate the importance of this, from peewee football up, in terms of developing relationships not based on race. I donít think we are seeing that today.

    I donít doubt that shit happened, but weíve made progress as a collective society from that.

    Unless you listen to MSM, then you learn we havenít and everything must be burned.

    Or, it occurs to me, it's taking advantage of the fact that people fear the accusation of racism more than the concepts. For example extreme leftists can continue practicing their bastard version of racism as long as they wear the anti-racism flags. And moderates who reject racism are declared racist, and mostly hide inside.

    Such a strategy could make things worse for sure.

    I tend to avoid Drudge Report except at election time and have noticed this cycle that he seems to have more [prominent] "anti-" Trump links on his site. Has anyone else observed this, too? And does anyone know the reasons behind the change in presentation and motivations? We've got the entirety of the MSM, political institutions, and academia to feed us TDS and it'd be sad to lose Drudge Report to that tendency, as well.

    Drudge has been gone for a year. I haven't opened it once since January. Instapundit, Citizen Free Press, Bongino, and Rantingly fill the void nicely.

    I can only speak with confidence regarding ignitions in California, where we had 11,000 ground strikes in mid August. This stretched resources to the extent that many fires were not fully contained when the weather hit. Once the wind came, it was off to the races, with single fires chewing up 100k+ acres in a day.
    I have no idea whether Oregon had the same lightning holdover issues. Maybe the wind caused trees to take out owerlines, which has been a huge problem as of late. Maybe Antifa did do it? I don’t know, and you certainly don’t.
    It doesn't take months to determine the cause of a fire when people are caught intentionally lighting the fire.

    You seem to really really really want to believe that this could not have been intentional or coordinated or committed by the marxists. If you want to believe 2+2 = 5 badly enough, no amount of evidence will convince you otherwise.

    Antifa members arrested for starting fires:
    Antifa and 'Black Lives Matter' Blamed for Fires in Montana, Idaho, California, Oregon - Montana Daily Gazette

    Antifa/BLM funding and organizing:
    Report: BLM co-founder lobbying wing funded by pro-Communist China group

    The DHS believes Antifa/BLM is a coordinated and organized uprising:
    BREAKING: DHS leaked email confirms Antifa is an organized group | The Post Millennial

    Arson in California: 9 fires in barely an hour in Ukiah; $1 million bail for suspect

    We have two facts:
    1. Antifa/BLM are well funded and highly organized
    2. Multiple people affiliated with Antifa/BLM have been arrested for arson after evidence strongly suggests they started a fire or they have been caught intentionally starting fires (In some cases, multiple fires in multiple different geographic locations).

    I believe 2+2=4
