The recent violence against Trump supporters has been a low blow not only on Sanders and Hillary but an insult on all Americans who want to weigh political ideas on their merits. Why?
Because many of those anti-Trump gangsters and thugs actually support either Hillary or Sanders, including San Jose’s Mayor Sam Liccardo. That is certainly not a fair representation of Hillary’s and Sanders’ own views, but the fact is that those anti-Trump supporters do not act in isolation. It was reported last March that
“A Craigslist ad posted by Bernie Sanders supporters offering $15 an hour to protest at a Trump rally in Wisconsin. They would also provide shuttle bus transport, parking if you needed it and ready-made signs.”
MoveOn.org, which is largely funded by George Soros, sent out an email after an anti-Trump rally saying:
“We’ve been ramping up our efforts for months… to the support we provided students in Chicago last night by printing signs and a banner and recruiting MoveOn.org members to join their peaceful protest. We need to double-down in the face of direct attacks on our community.
“And to keep it going, we’re counting on you to donate whatever you can to cover the costs of everything involved — the organizers, signs, online recruitment ads, training, and more.”
Even the Daily Beast, of all places, reported that some of the anti-Trump protesters and groups reached out to Clinton campaign for support. Hillary actually messed things up and put her feet in midair when she declared that Trump was largely responsible for the violence.
“Trump has lowered the bar,” she said on CNN, “and now is it a surprise that people who don’t like him are stepping over that low bar? I don’t think it is. He needs to condemn all violence by everyone. I already have, I will continue to do so.”
However, Trump supporters, as one writer points out, “do not generally disrupt or violently protest Clinton, Sanders and rival Republican campaign gatherings, aside from stray hecklers.”
We are not defending Trump here. As we have argued in the past, Hillary, Sanders and Trump have to be evaluated according to the dictate of practical reason and logical consistency, not according to the whims of emotion and personal appetite and preference. In fact, we have always asked readers to put on their thinking cap in order to examine the fundamental issues that post beneath the political process in America.
Moreover, we have critically examined the weaknesses of all those presidential candidates in the past. Trump has recently created another contradiction with respect to his foreign policy. He declared of Libya and Gaddafi back in 2011: “Now we should go in. We should stop this guy.” Trump has lambasted Hillary for the invasion, but he himself supported a “surgical” strike against Libya.
Donald Trump must know that this is a blatant contradiction. When asked about the same issue, Trump responded: “But I wasn’t for what happened [the disaster]. Look at the way …With Benghazi and all of the problems that we’ve had. It was handled horribly.”
But wouldn’t a “surgical” strike do the same thing, Mr. Trump? When was the last time a surgical strike turned out to be good? Have we already forgotten the surgical strike on the Russian peasants after the Bolsheviks took over the Soviet Union? The surgical strike on the German civilians after World War II? The surgical strike on Dresden? The surgical strike on Palestine in 1948? The political and surgical strike on Iran in 1953 by the CIA and British intelligence under Eisenhower and Churchill? The surgical strike on Iraq in 2003, which was based on a lie and which resulted in sodomy in places like Abu Ghraib and which will cost America at least six trillion dollars? Why can’t Donald Trump start thinking about these issues seriously? Why can’t he appeal to ideas of people like John Adams, who said that “We have no Constitution which functions in the absence of a moral people”? Doesn’t Trump know that these vital contradictions give people headache?
But then we have Hillary Clinton. Virtually every Republican representative wants her head on a silver platter for the Benghazi debacle. Granted, she should stay out of politics and shouldn’t even run for president, for she has already committed too many political crimes. She represents the oligarchs and has been in cahoots with the powers that be for decades. It has been reported that Haim Saban
“badly wants Hillary Clinton to be elected president this year, vowing to provide ‘as much as needed’ to see it happen, since ‘she would be great for the country and great for the world,’ and ‘on issues I care about, [Clinton] is pristine plus.'”
But what about the people who were responsible for the debacle in Iraq and Afghanistan? Who is going after those political prostitutes and whores, besides the late Vincent Bugliosi? The debacle in Benghazi will not cost six trillion dollars. So, why do politicians and pinheads want to play double standard? Who is going after David Petraeus?
As it turns out, the political process has been contradictory from its inception. As John Adams predicted, the political process cannot exist without a moral people. Moral people cannot exist without practical reason, and practical reason cannot exist without Logos. As St. John makes clear, Logos was in the beginning of this universe. Therefore, a rejection of Logos is metaphysically a rejection of practical reason in the social and political universe. Politicians have deliberately ignored and dismissed practical reason for years. The end result?
Blatant contradiction and inconsistency, deliberate lies and falsifications, and colossal hoaxes and fabrications in the political landscape. Here is a classic one: Hillary has recently given a speech on inequality while wearing a $12,495 Giorgio Armani jacket! The masses quickly picked that up and rightly got angry. As the Associated Press has reported, people got “pissed.” There is more:
“Clinton is far from the first politician to get flack for her high-end outfit choices. Michele Obama, a fan of J. Crew and Target, likes to mix these mass brands with $540 Lanvin sneakers. Her daughters Sasha and Malia even wore $20,000 dresses to a recent state dinner at the White House. In 2008, Sarah Palin was criticized for a $150,000 makeover from Alaskan governor to potential vice president.”
Going back to the San Jose incident. The violence against Trump supporters also shows the moral and intellectual perversity and complete failure of “multiculturalism” and “diversity” as advanced in the popular media. If the multiculturalists are right, shouldn’t they respect Trump and his supporters, though they may disagree with their views? Why are those gangsters afraid to put a little “diversity” in their midst? Or shouldn’t they start embracing or rejecting an idea based on the ways things really are?
Well, according to San Jose’s Mayor Sam Liccardo, people do not have the right to even cheer for Donald Trump. In response to the violence, Liccardo, who is actually supporting Hillary, declared: “At some point Donald Trump needs to take responsibility for the irresponsible behavior of his campaign.”
Mayor Liccardo was completely silent about Trump supporters who got punched and returned home with bloodied noses and ears. He said nothing about a Trump supporter who got pelted with eggs. Liccardo said nothing about gangsters “waving Mexican flags while burning American ones in San Jose.” Liccardo said nothing about how bottles were thrown and how hats went up in flames, and how a woman got hit right in the face by the same anti-Trump gangsters. Liccardo said nothing about an anti-Trump protester screaming, “We don’t follow the law.”
So, is Liccardo an accomplice? Isn’t he indirectly in cahoots with the criminal underground? Let us turn the platform to former US Senate candidate Mark Dankof, who has recently written a letter to Liccardo.
Dear Mayor Liccardo:
I wanted to congratulate you and your police department in San Jose for being a national disgrace in allowing massive full-fledged criminal mayhem to be visited upon Americans attending a Donald Trump rally in your city.
Hillary Clinton (Queen Jezebel), her husband (King Ahaz), George Soros, David Brock of Media Matters for America, the “mystery man” of the Miami New Times and Progressive Insurance Company heir Jonathan Lewis, Haim Saban, Jeffrey Epstein, Wall Street, the Central Bankers and Globalist Free Traders, and the War Party’s defense contractors, not to mention William Kristol of The Weekly Standard, all salute you today.
And don’t worry. If Queen Jezebel is elected, Americans won’t notice her family bank account courtesy of foreign interests, her ongoing support for a domestic police state, the deliberate exportation of American jobs and manufacturing abroad, or the subversion and mass murder she’s helped accomplish in Libya, Syria, Iraq, Palestine, Ukraine, the Donbass, or even what is coming after 2016 in future needless tragedies with Iran, Putin’s Russia, or China.
After all, it’s an even numbered year. This should mean that your beloved San Francisco Giants will win the National League pennant and World Series again at your AT and T Park in San Jose (2010, 2012, 2014). There will be plenty of Anchor Steam to guzzle, much cannabis to smoke, and much individual and group perversion to enjoy while celebrating the Giants’ 4th brass ring since 1958.
No one will notice what’s coming, at least until Putin, the Chinese, and the Iranians kick us in the collective hind end. You and yours know the drill.
Again, my profound and sincere congratulations, Mayor. Your Real Employers and Handlers all salute you.
I’ll write another sincere congratulatory missal to you at your Babylon By the Bay address, when the Giants win the Series again.
God bless you,

 Multiculturalists do not mean to say that people ought to be respected for who they are as human beings or that certain works of art or literature ought to be examined according to their intellectual rigor. If that were the case, then multiculturalists would appreciate the people whose works have become the fabric of Western Civilizations. In fact, it can easily be argued that multiculturalists are racists. More recently, “Yale English students call for end of focus on white male writers.” “Yale English students call for end of focus on white male writers,” Guardian, June 1, 2016.
Multiculturalists actually want to deconstruct Western culture and replace it with something else. Remember Jesse Jackson’s mantra chanting at Stanford, “”Hey, hey, ho, ho, Western Civ has got to go!” Michael Lind, “Western Civ Fights Back,” NY Times, September 6, 1998. We know who is behind the multiculturalist movement. Some scholars like Sander Gilman try very hard not to mention the people who are behind it but end up mentioning it indirectly.

Gary Byrne, a US Secret Service agent who used to work in the White House, claims that he “personally observed” Bill Clinton’s sexual adventure and declared that Hillary is “volcanic, impulsive, enabled by sycophants, and disdainful of the rules set for everyone else.” Harry Cockburn, “Hillary Clinton ‘gave Bill a black eye in the White House,’” The Independent, June 6, 2016. Byrne also said that “Mrs Clinton gave her husband a black eye during a fight in the White House while he was president… Byrne, who is now retired, claims an ‘especially big argument’ between the Clintons ‘ended with a crash,’ and a vase was found smashed on the floor. The next day President Clinton emerged with ‘a shiner, a real, live, put-a-steak-on-it black eye.’” Hillary, Byrne says, showed “a disdain for the little people. What I saw in the 1990s sickened me.”
