I’ll admit to two things:
- Having seen how the radical left works up close and personal, when I saw the Capitol riot the week before last I thought “I’d wager a shiny new quarter they had some “encouragement” from provocateurs from the left””.
- At the same time, after two months of hearing about legal “Krakens” that turned out to be Ewoks in court, I’ve noted that some in the MAGA crowd have a certain flair for issueing, and consuming, information you may not want to stake your life on.
- On the other hand, the response from the Left – “There was never any provocation, Winston” – seemed just a little…pat?
And so re-read Berg’s 18th Law, and waited to see what happened.
And sure enough:
Read the whole thread.
Of course, saying “the “Anti”-Fa guy made me do it” is a flimsy defense, legally and morally.
But this is a reminder to all of you who might be involved in any sort of public demonstraiton for conservative causes: keep tape rolling. Photograph everything and everyone that seems out of place, and perhaps more importantly everyone that seems waaaaaaaay to enthusiastically “in place”.
We learned this during the Tea Party, when the shills were amateurs. Now it’s the “A” team, and they are getting people killed.
