Insanity Wrap #69: 'Antifa Is Just an Idea' Myth, Obliterated

youtube

Insanity Wrap needs to know: Is a Joe Biden rally still a Joe Biden rally when Donald Trump protestors outnumber the Joe Biden supporters at the Joe Biden rally?

Answer: We aren’t sure, but it sure is fun watching the clip.

Before we get to the sordid details, a quick preview of today’s Wrap.

  • It isn’t that Claire McCaskill lies, it’s that she’s so bad at it
  • Wokescolds take over your weather app
  • The Biden Snapchat filter no woman can go without, even if she doesn’t want it

And so much more.

Shall we begin?

This Is Not a Sane World, Exhibit #1,000,006

Network-Enabled Anarchy

Antifa is just an idea, we’re told.

There’s a devastating new report titled “Network-Enabled Anarchy” (linked above) presented by Rutgers and put together by a collection of scholars and researchers from Rutgers, State University of New Jersey, New York University, the University of Chicago, and elsewhere. The authors explain “How Militant Anarcho-Socialist Networks Use Social Media to Instigate Widespread Violence Against Political Opponents and Law Enforcement.”

From the report:

To analyze the use and prevalence of memes and other coded language and activity, we performed analyses on over ten million social media comments ranging from mainstream platforms (such as Twitter) to fringe online forums on Reddit. Throughout the research, we examined whether the same extremist themes and actions that are characteristic of both Jihadi and Boogaloo extremists—themes such as violent revolution, martyrdom, and having a utopian narrative, and actions such as terror attacks—are also found in extremist groups espousing anti-fascism and anarcho-socialism.

And: “Anarcho-Socialist militias which explicitly glorify Martyr narratives, classic authoritarian narratives, and revolutionary narratives are now formally organizing — and are growing.”

This is a lengthy document, and Insanity Wrap has scratched only the surface of it so far.

Expect more in the days to come — from Insanity Wrap, and from BLM-antifa, too.

Presented Without Comment

Moving right along…

Where’s Waldo and/or the Biden Supporters?

It’s one thing to get shouted down by protestors. Embarrassing, sure, but it happens all the time. No big deal, really.

Look, here’s a clip of CNN’s Jim Acosta getting shouted down by Trump voters, and you hardly heard a thing about it — so no big deal, right?

But back to that Biden video: Where are his supporters?

A few people in trucks, a couple members of the press (we think).

Otherwise… nada.

This lame non-event came just one day after Biden and Harris together couldn’t draw a single spectator to an event in Arizona.

This does not look to Insanity Wrap like a winning campaign.

We need a little less of that and a little more of this:

Insanity Wrap can’t wait for the day that antifa really is nothing more than an idea (a very bad idea), but we’re afraid it’s going to be an ugly process getting us there.

The Craziest Person in the World (Today)

It’s former Senator Claire McCaskill (D-Missouri), who isn’t crazy so much as she is fundamentally awful and dishonest.

But she’s so bad at it — so transparent — that her dishonesty circles all the way back around to crazy.

Monday featured not one but two whoppers from McCaskill.

Insanity Wrap is forced to suppose that it’s pure evil or something when a legitimately elected president performs his constitutionally mandated job to name justices for the Senate to confirm (or deny).

Whatever.

The problem is, McCaskill is lying. Her “facts” aren’t.

(Forgive the uncorrectable typos. Marcus meant to denote Trump, not Clinton, for Gorsuch and Kavanaugh, but Twitter doesn’t allow for corrections.)

In any case, Bill Clinton was properly elected to the White House twice, albeit with the smallest popular vote percentage in recent decades.

Clinton went on to send the beloved Ruth Bader Ginsburg to the Supreme Court.

How very notorious, indeed.

We are also now forced to suppose that by McCaskill’s own logic, all the RBG-worship must come to an immediate and permanent stop.

Then there’s this:

Claire McCaskill, voter suppression detective!

While Insanity Wrap hates to be pedantic, that’s not a picture, it’s a video.

And it isn’t a video of voter suppression.

It’s people waiting in line — with literally weeks to spare if today’s wait is too long — to do something they want to do.

Waiting behind people at the ATM on payday is not a denial of banking services. Waiting in the checkout line at the grocery store is not the same as starving to death. Standing for an hour in the heat and humidity at Disney World just to ride Space Mountain is not a human rights abuse.

McCaskill is a symptom of the desperation sickness infecting the Democrat Party.

Here’s Another Damn Thing We’re Supposed to Be Concerned About

Does anyone, even his fellow Democrats, still give one damn about a single thing emanating from Joe Biden’s mouth?

He isn’t up to the task of running for president, much less serving as president. The power in a Biden administration would all be behind the throne.

Whatever it is Biden is saying at any given moment, it’s generally either not true, mumbled nonsense, or an insult.

This is the man who promises to restore “civility” to the White House, provided he can remember what that is.

One More Thing…

Insanity Wrap Is Mentally Ill
(Seen on Facebook.)

That’s a Wrap for today.

Come back tomorrow for another Insanity Wrap…

…assuming we make it that long.
