Everybody’s ‘Far Right’ Now

Posted on | August 2, 2017 | 1 Comment

Jake Tapper is Hitler, because everybody’s Hitler now.

As a notorious right-wing extremist banned from Twitter, I’d like to welcome the latecomers to our (alleged) fascist movement. Frankly, it’s getting overcrowded. There’s hardly enough room here for a guy to goose-step and sieg-heil without bumping into another crypto-Nazi.

CNN’s Jake Tapper, for example.

You probably didn’t realize Jake was a fascist, and neither did he, until he had the temerity to take issue with the Women’s March celebrating fugitive murderer JoAnne Chesimard a/k/a “Assata Shakur.”

 

This is not a matter of allegation, it’s a fact: JoAnne Chesimard was convicted of murdering a New Jersey state trooper, escaped prison and fled to Cuba. She was a member of the Black Liberation Army, “a splinter group comprised of the most radical members of the Black Panthers,” and “was the leader of a notorious New York City BLA cell that hunted down police officers for brutal assassinations.” She was on the FBI’s Most Wanted List at the time she killed state trooper Werner Foerster:

At about 12:45 a.m. on the morning of May 2, 1973, the fugitive Shakur was being driven to a new hideout in Philadelphia by BPP Information Minister Zayd Malik Shakur (Assata’s brother-in-law) and BLA member Sundiata Acoli, when their car was pulled over by state trooper James Harper for a tail-light violation on the New Jersey Turnpike. Fellow trooper Werner Foerster provided backup for Harper. While the lawmen conducted routine questioning of the vehicle’s occupants, Shakur (who was in the front passenger’s seat) and her companions suddenly fired upon them with semi-automatic pistols. As Foerster grappled with the driver, Shakur shot the trooper twice before her gun apparently jammed. With Foerster on the ground wounded and helpless, Shakur grabbed the trooper’s own firearm and blasted two fatal shots into his head, execution-style. (Zayd Malik Shakur was also killed in the melee.)
Assata Shakur fled the scene but was apprehended by police a short time later, about five miles away. . . . Shakur was found guilty of first-degree murder and seven additional felonies, resulting in a prison sentence of life plus 33 years.
Shakur escaped from prison on November 2, 1979 — probably with the help of Cuban or Cuban-trained terrorists posing as visitors.

Anyone wishing “happy birthday” to this terrorist is, in effect, endorsing murder. As Vox Day says, however, “SJWs Always Double Down,” and the Women’s March blamed their critics as “the far right”:

 

So (a) the Women’s March invoked “solidarity” as justification for praising the “revolutionary” murderer, (b) it is an “attack” to tell the truth about who Assata Shakur actually is, and (c) Jake Tapper is “far right” for wondering whether progressives should be celebrating cop-killers.

Women’s March founder Linda Sarsour accused Tapper of “joining the ranks of the alt-right to target me online” despite the fact that, as the Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported, Tapper “was named one of the Jewish journalists most frequently harassed by the alt-right online during the 2016 election campaign.” Even feminists like Bari Weiss rejected the rhetoric of the Women’s March: “Since when did criticizing a domestic terrorist become a signal issue of the far right? Last I checked, that position was a matter of basic decency and patriotism.”

 

The characterization of Tapper as “far right” or “alt-right” is intended to imply that anyone who criticizes a “revolutionary” cop-killer is sympathetic to Nazis and engaged in “hate speech.” This tendency of the Left to label all opposition as “extremist” leads to the problem identified by Mark Steyn: “When Everyone’s Hitler, Nobody’s Hitler.”

What the Left is doing is “working the refs,” trying to make the mainstream media even more liberal than it already is, by making conservative viewpoints politically radioactive. This tactic is why you can’t condemn a cop-killer without being “far right,” and why you cannot defend Christians without being labeled a “hate group.”

“Time and again, I see the SPLC using the reputation it gained decades ago fighting the Klan as a tool to bludgeon mainstream politically conservative opponents. For groups that do not threaten violence, the use of SPLC ‘hate group’ or ‘extremist’ designations frequently are exploited as an excuse to silence speech and speakers.”
Professor William Jacobson, June 28, 2017

Your right to free speech is being targeted by the same intolerant forces of the Left that got me banned from Twitter. How do totalitarian enemies of the First Amendment dare label others “extremists”?
