From BLM to Antifa groups, over the last decade we have seen an increasing amount of violence aimed at conservatives, police, and an astounding amount of vitriol and violence aimed at "white" people, with Democrats, liberals across the board, and the mainstream media attempting to justify and normalize violence as an acceptable part of "political" speech and activism.
This was clearly shown in the lefts attempts to justify the "punch a nazi" theme after Richard Spencer was sucker-punched while giving an interview, as MSM outlets like the NYT even headlining pieces with the question "Is It O.K. To Punch a Nazi?" (Archive is link here)
We have seen interview after interview with BAMN (By Any Means Necessary) leaders claiming that violence against the far right or a Nazi or a white supremacist, or basically anyone these groups deems as one of the aforementioned groups, "is not a crime." We have also seen groups like Refuse Fascism appear at events, dressed in black, wearing masks and carrying weapons, showing up at peaceful rallies and simply attacking, all the while claiming they are "justified," meaning they are doing it with a "clean conscious" because they believe their cause gives them the right.
In other words, anyone that disagrees with Antifa groups political stance and philosophy, are automatically labeled a "fascist" and therefore deserve to be attacked.
The media has helped these groups by labeling conservatives as "alt-right," then conflated the alt-right with white supremacists and Nazis, and viola, every conservative across the country is now a target for these Antifa groups.
Another major donation came from a group that was chaired by Hillary Clinton during the 1980s. The New World Foundation gave $52,000 to AfGJ.
Refuse Fascism did not respond to a request for comment for this article.
Chuck Kaufman, the national co-ordinator for AfGJ, said he was only aware of the Berkeley protests through social media.
“I wasn’t aware that Refuse Fascism was involved, but probably they were one of a whole lot of groups calling to shut down Milo Yiannopoulos’ hate speech,” he told The Daily Caller.
“AfGJ acts as fiscal sponsor for Refuse Fascism which means we process tax-deductible donations for them. As long as their use of the money falls into areas permitted for tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organizations, we don’t involve ourselves one way or the other in their program work.”
Democrats are actively funding this violence against conservatives as part of political speech.
Lt Col Tony Shaffer, CIA trained Intel operative, joined Fox News to discuss the recent Vegas massacre where over 50 people were slaughtered and over 500 more were injured over the weekend, but he makes some excellent points about a pattern that has been established, after he highlights the similarities of the Vegas shooter, Stephen Paddock, and James T. Hodgkinson, the man that deliberately targeted Republican congressmen as they were at baseball practice, and who had a hit list in his pocket naming Republican targets.
Both were over 60, both "descended into madness" and both opened fire on perceived conservatives, (I say perceived because some of the Republicans in congress are often considered RINOs aka Republicans in name only).
The huge difference between Paddock and Hodgkinson is that Paddock was reported to me a millionaire, had the resources to accrue an arsenal to use in Vegas, which is why his rampage was able to kill dozens upon dozens and injure hundreds.
PADDOCK WAS DESCENDING INTO MADNESS
Col Shaffer's main point however is when he says "The left has encouraged the use of violence as an extension and use of political speech." It has been normalized by liberals, Democrats and the MSM, desensitizing the public to violence committed against conservatives or Trump supporters with the justifications that if they are conservative and they are perceived to support president Trump, they therefore should expect violence against those people.
Another difference between Hodgkinson and Paddock is that with Hodgkinson, it was very easy to obtain information on his political affiliation, specifically that he was virulently anti-Trump, but Paddock did not have an online presence.
Another interesting similarity is how the MSM described Hodgkinson back in June to things we are seeing them use to describe Paddock now.
For example, Politico wrote about Hodgkinson in June 2017, stating "Investigators searching for a motive are piecing together a timeline of his last months in which neighbors, colleagues and public records show a man's descent into rage."
Both men descended into "rage" or "madness" before deciding to go on a shooting rampage against "perceived" conservatives and Trump supporters. A description that seemingly fits the "descent" into rage we have seen across the country by Trump haters and liberals, along with the Media and Antifa groups, since the presidential election.
So how many of these ticking time bombs are out there ready to explode against conservatives and Trump supporters? How many of them plan to be "on the streets" on November 4, 2014, planning to stay there until their "demands" are met, which is the removal of President Trump and VP Pence?
PADDOCK 'OBSESSED' WITH GIRLFRIEND'S EX WHO WAS BERNIE SUPPORTER AND TRUMP HATER
Contrary to claims that Paddock was a registered Democrat, it appears that he was not a registered voter at all, either in Florida where he maintained a residence nor in Nevada where he was presently living, but other information that has started emerging, gives credence to Col Shaffer's assertion above that the country and western concert attendees were deliberately targeted because they are "perceived" to be conservative and Trump supporters.
One specific detail caught my eye in the ABC News article linked above, as they described how Paddock was "descending into madness," where they state "More details are emerging, investigators say, that suggest Paddock’s mental state was deteriorating before the shooting — significant weight loss, an increasingly slovenly physical appearance and an obsession with his girlfriend’s ex-husband."
The reference by ABC News to Paddock being obsessed with Marilou Danley's ex-husband is interesting for a variety of reasons. First because her ex-husband Geary Danley, who lives in Arkansas, was incorrectly named as the shooter in the preliminary coverage by a number of bloggers.
Despite Geary not having anything to do with the Vegas shooting, knowing that Paddock was "obsessed" with him, and that Marilou was married to the man for 25 years, did prompt a little research.
Danley was previously married to Geary Danley, who now lives in Arkansas. They married in Las Vegas in 1990, according to Washoe County records.
The former couple jointly filed for divorce on Feb. 25, 2015, and the divorce was finalized the next day.
During her divorce, Marilou Danley listed a downtown Reno unit at the Montage on Sierra Street as her address. At the time, the unit was owned by shooting suspect Stephen Paddock. Court records indicated that she started living at the address in August 2013. Paddock sold the condominium in December 2016.
So Marilous Danley was married to Geary Danley for 25 years, but moved in with Stephen Paddock in 2013, so she lived with her ex for about 23 years. An ex that according to his Facebook page, which has been deleted but can still be accessed using Archive is, shows groups he "liked" were virulently anti-Trump, progressively liberal Obama supporting, against conservatives and the Republican party, and he, like James Hodgkinson, was a rabid Bernie Sanders supporter.
VEGAS INCONSISTENCIES & A BIZARRE OFFICIAL STATEMENT
While a certain amount of inaccuracies always occur in reporting as events are ongoing, there are a number of specific inconsistencies that the mainstream media are not even attempting to clear up, many of which is highlighted in an outstanding piece by Michael Snyder, titled "16 Unanswered Questions About The Las Vegas Shooting That The Mainstream Media Doesn’t Want To Talk About."
While all 16 are legitimate questions, there is another question I have not seen asked in regards to one of the more recent press conferences given by the LVMPD, where headline after headline is focusing on the fact that Las Vegas Sheriff Joe Lombardo says the shooter was radicalized, but at the beginning of the short clip below, the Sheriff said something else that seems rather bizarre considering the "official" narrative claims Paddock was a "lone" gunman.
He says "You heard me say that we're comfortable that we have the suspect in custody." Listen below at the very beginning.
The entire press conference can be heard at this link, and the portion quoted above starts at approximately the 28:10 minute mark, as they are talking about using proper procedures for evidence in case of further possible prosecutions.
The wording about having "the suspect in custody," when by all accounts, as well as leaked photos and all official statements by police and other law enforcement officials, show that Stephen Paddock is dead, not "in custody."
(A leaked photo shows the Vegas shooter's body)
The reason the terminology of talking about having the "suspect in custody" is concerning, is that as has happened time and again, initial reports indicated more than one shooter, then once there is a body of an alleged shooter, all of a sudden reports start saying "lone gunman," as edits are made, corrections added or whole articles are changed to remove reference to multiple shooters, without explanation.
Update: Police are now admitting he may have had an "accomplice" to help with the "scheme," but have not yet acknowledged another active shooter."
According to police scanner audio, as they were approaching Paddocks room an officer can be heard talking about the 32nd floor, where Paddock was, and the 29th floor, where he clearly states "it sounds like it is confirmed there are at least two shooters with fully automatic weapons." That can be heard at about the 19:36 minute mark in the audio below)
(Note- To verify the recording was real and not an internet hoax, we found that Newsweek and NPR, provided partial transcripts from this audio, yet neither of them included the references to multiple shooters in their partial transcripts, yet what they did transcribe matches what we heard in the audio below.)
It also cannot be ignored that Paddock held several goverment jobs, including years with the IRS and his connections to Lockheed Martin, bringing up questions about his "descent" into madness and whether it is connected to MK Ultra and programmed assassins.
While the chaos of reporting can and will always offer inconsistent reports and corrections, it seems that now that the "chaos" of the shooting is over, even more questions are emerging with no logical answers.
Another statement that struck me was one that Marilou Danley's brother said, reported by a variety of sites, when he quoted her as telling him after the shooting "Relax, we shouldn't worry about it. I'll fix it. Do not panic. I have a clean conscience."
Antifa groups claim they are justified in their violence and have a clean conscious as well, so that statement doesn't exactly inspire confidence coming from a woman that lived with Paddock and would have known he was "descending into madness," which included "significant weight loss, an increasingly slovenly physical appearance and an obsession with his girlfriend’s ex-husband," as well as having been prescribed anti-anxiety medications. Then she just gaily goes out of the country as a man she lived with for many years goes on a shooting rampage?
These men were ticking time bombs that exploded and a look around the nation, the violence against Trump supporters and conservatives, the unapologetic statements from those committing the violence and the MSMs complicity in attempting to justify those actions, and the increasing frequency of these events, begs the question of how many more liberals, unable to accept the results of the presidential election, are "descending into madness," and getting ready to explode?
