Opinion| I know it’s not a good thing to revel in other people’s misfortune, and I try my best not to, but sometimes, it is just too hard to ignore these things.
Take for instance some of the MSM and Democrat politicians and their seeming insistence that ANTIFA violence in Portland is … a myth, at least according to Russian Collusion hoax pusher, Jerry ‘The Penguin’ Nadler:
Nowadays it is not just Democrat politicians and radical leftist activists who are afflicted with TDS, it now seems to the the entire bread and circus industry.
It started with ‘Colon’ Kaepernick and then spread to the entire NFL, then to other sports and now it’s the MLB, WNBA and even the NHL has teams sporting BLM shirts in the locker room for photo ops.
The unfortunate thing about pretending that these violent rioters do not exist in your city, when they clearly do … is that one day your property will be destroyed. A Seattle radio host, who insisted that the ‘protests’ were ‘peaceful’, learned the hard way that his statement was not entirely true: …
The Blaze reported:
‘A Seattle radio host believed that the protests in Seattle were peaceful. That was up until rioters attempted to burn down his apartment building.
Last month, ESPN radio host Paul Gallant replied to President Donald Trump on Twitter. The president was criticizing Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan (D) for allowing “the anarchists takeover of her city.” President Trump razzed Durkan over her comments that made light of riots in Seattle, especially when she called the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone a “block party” and said it would be a “summer of love,” a remark she later admitted she regretted uttering.’
Gallant responded to Trump’s tweet, which said:
‘Seattle Mayor says, about the anarchists takeover of her city, “it is a Summer of Love”. These Liberal Dems don’t have a clue. The terrorists burn and pillage our cities, and they think it is just wonderful, even the death. Must end this Seattle takeover now!’
Gallant seemed pretty sure that there was no violence in Seattle, tweeting back at Trump:
‘Walked through it last night out of curiosity and saw no burning, pillaging, or deaths. Chill dawg’

But then, a short time later … this weekend actually, it became undeniable, for Paul at least, that there was violent civil unrest in the city. First, troublemakers set fire to a construction site which was working on the King County Youth Service Center/Judge Patricia H. Clark Children and Family Justice Center.
Then, out of control, what can only be described as ‘rioters’, IMHO, also decided it would be a great idea to wreck a Starbucks, breaking it’s windows, spray painting terrorist slogans on the building, looting the inside etc.
The New York Times’ Mike Baker shared this video of the detention center a blaze and the torn up Starbucks:
‘I have shifted up to Seattle today to follow a large demonstration that’s in solidarity with Portland.
I’d estimate a crowd of 2,000 already. They just torched construction buildings at the site of a new youth detention center. Meanwhile, feds are here https://nytimes.com/2020/07/23/us/seattle-protests-feds.html’

‘Moving through the Capitol Hill, hitting a Starbucks. Smoke is coming out the window and people are now calling for the residents above to evacuate.’ Baker tweeted concerning the Starbucks vandalism.
The Blaze went on to explain:
‘Sadly, the rioters attacked a Starbucks that had residential apartments above, and the fire forced the residents to evacuate the smoldering building. Unfortunately for Gallant, he lived above the Starbucks that was vandalized and set ablaze. Gallant said police officers instructed him to stay away from his home because there could be explosives inside the Starbucks.
Gallant was rightfully furious that his home had been attacked. The “Danny & Gallant” radio host was so concerned about the violence in Seattle that he said he felt the need to buy a gun to protect himself. “I feel like I need to buy a firearm, because clearly this is going to keep happening,” Gallant tweeted. “Enough is enough.”‘
‘Came home to my apartment complex. The Starbucks underneath has been destroyed, and cops are telling us to stay away in case something explosive is inside.’

‘Great job assholes,’ he tweeted.
Then came the red pill dose, which seemed to kick in pretty quickly after his personal safety was threatened:
I feel like I need to buy a firearm, because clearly this is going to keep happening. Enough is enough. It looks like a block party down the street from me. Really angry right now.

‘I feel like I need to buy a firearm, because clearly this is going to keep happening. Enough is enough. It looks like a block party down the street from me. Really angry right now,’ Gallant tweeted.
LMAO! Reality check big time!
Seriously, I hope that Gallant is safe and sound and that his local laws allow him to arm and protect himself from the unhinged mob roaming through his city. No one deserves this to happen to them and their property.
Sure, it is ironic that the guy who denied all this stuff was going on had this happen to his building, but I don’t want to see anyone have to deal with this, that is the whole point.
I’ve said it before, the Dems and radical left need to learn the lessons of the endless wars we are fighting against radical elements in the Middle East. It is easy to get a mob started tearing down things, but getting a handle on the mob once it gets going is not as easy … just ask lil Jacob, the mayor of Minneapolis:
"Go home Jacob! Go home!"

However, the real elite, they don’t care. They have compounds and armed guards, they want to see your city burn, it will just create an opportunity for them to consolidate wealth and power. I have a bad feeling that this is not going to end well …
