Interior Department Occupation: DC Yet Again Ignores Yet Another Leftist Violent Incident

To paraphrase George Orwell in “Animal Farm“:

“All political violence is equal.  But some is more equal than others.”

DC has ignored many decades’ worth of political violence of all sorts.


Because all of those political violences — have been committed by Leftists.

Flashback 2020: Months of Antifa/BLM Looting, Rioting, and Chaos:

“(I)n most instances the radicals in Black Lives Matter and Antifa were allowed to get away with their heinous actions last year, even being treated as heroes by the mainstream press and Democrats – some of whom, like Harris and the Biden campaign, promoted their bail funds.”


Which brings us to late last week.  When the following happened — the very latest in the VERY long line of Leftist violences.

Climate Change Activists Storm and Take Over Department of Interior Building:

“A demonstration in Washington, D.C., against fossil fuel projects turned violent Thursday when climate change protesters stormed the U.S. Department of the Interior building and occupied a space inside the federal building for hours….

“Climate activists took over the space held by the Bureau of Indian Affairs for roughly four hours. This was reportedly the first time since the 1970s that the Bureau of Indian Affairs in Washington, D.C., was occupied. The Indigenous Environmental Network (is) one of the organizers of the People Vs. Fossil Fuels demonstrations.…”

“Police and protesters clashed during the confrontation. The police reportedly used Tasers in order to control the crowd attempting to bulldoze their way into the Department of Interior building.”

Is DC going to do anything about this one?  Of course not – don’t be ridiculous.

So, We’re Just Going to Ignore a Bunch of Green Warriors Who Tried to Storm the Department of the Interior?

We surely are.

And, of course, the Left getting away with it this time means there will indubitably be a next time.


Because why would the Left stop engaging in violences if nothing happens to them when they engage in violences?

Why Charges Against Protesters Are Being Dismissed by the Thousands – November 19, 2020:

“Prosecutors declined to pursue many of the cases because they concluded the protesters were exercising their basic civil rights.”


First Amendment: “Congress shall make no law…abridging…the right of the people peaceably to assemble….”

Emphasis ours — because duh.  “Basic civil rights” does NOT include assaulting and occupying government buildings.  Arson, looting, and vandalism are also beyond the definition of “basic civil rights.”

And in many, many cases, it’s these prosecutors doing the dismissing….

Beware of George Soros’ Trojan Horse Prosecutors

How do we know Leftists getting away with violence leads to more Leftist violence?

Because Leftists have been getting away with violence for decades.

The Weather Underground bombers didn’t become prisoners — they became college professors.

In the Proud Tradition of Leftist Domestic Terrorism…

And because Leftists keep getting away with their violence, we can with moral certitude know there will be more Leftist violence.

We only have human nature — and hundreds of years of human history — as evidence.
