The Other Democrat "Convention"

Is anybody watching that supposed DNC "Convention"? What is that? 

It seems something along the lines of those old Jerry Lewis telethons, except without the serious and stated purpose. The GOP better be watching and learning, to wit, that is not the way to do a convention. 

American party political conventions--for me, anyhow--always have been fun, boisterous, over-the-top events. As a nerdy child, I loved watching those things, especially in the days of the smoke-filled back rooms when one was never absolutely certain who would win the nod. I loved the state-by-state roll call, with the flowery speeches about "our favorite son," and "the next President of the United States." All that is just about gone. 

On second thought, rather than a Lewis Telethon, this "official" DNC convention comes off as some sort of poorly done infomercial hawking some vague product that never gets specified: What does it do? How much is it? You won't know from this convention.

I, however, do know something else. 

This laughable ostensibly "official" DNC convention doesn't hold a candle to the real DNC convention, you know, the convention I wrote about before. The convention of Democrats unfolding on the streets of major cities in America is the real DNC convention; that's the one that reveals the true nature of the product the Democrats have on offer and what it does: violence, destruction, racism, hatred for Western Civilization, and most especially a virulent hatred for America. 

That real convention is attended by the delegates of the real DNC, the pampered, self-righteous, entitled, semi-illiterate products of generations of leftist schooling. Egged on by Democrat politicians and the morons who today pass for journalists, the real DNC delegates do what Democrats always have done well, form lynch mobs. That's the real Democrat convention. Never forget it.

  1. Lewis, it is madness here in Portland. The residents of the City of Portland appear to support these nightly riots. You are correct in assuming that these are the spoiled children of the elite of Portland. The leftist ideology is not just present in the youth, but in the horrible parents that encouraged them. So far they have stayed out of the suburbs, other to flash mob harass any pro-police gathering no matter where in the metro area it takes place. They did riot one night in a place called "Laurelhurst Park". But only for one night, because this is one of the neighborhoods that their parents live in, so they got told to take their riot back downtown. Which they did and attempted to beat a man to death Sunday night. The city really is just handed over to this mob each night. Broken windows everywhere now, not just in downtown, they loot any store they like. At first merchants were putting up BLM signs like painting lambs blood one their doors, but even that is not working if you sell liquor, vape products, or weed. The spineless mayor refuses to do anything even though he is up for re-election. Due to the manipulation of the primaries and voting in Portland the only on ballot opponent to Mayor Wheeler is someone who is even MORE supportive of Antifa. The damage that has been done to Portland is going to take years if not decades to recover. Who would want to visit Portland as a tourist now, with a global reputation of being run by violent mobs of roving kids? These people are just unbelievably stupid. This damage is going to affect everyone here. These rotten parents couldn't even teach their children to not shit the bed.

    1. It would do no good to send in national guard to halt the devastation. With so many Democrat voters in Portland, not even martial law would help. Once the governing authority has been "reconstructed", handing it back to the same people just repeats the cycle.

    2. Lewis, it is madness here in Portland.

      Oddly, what I hear from family in Portland is that there are a couple of blocks where the protests occur, and the rest of the city is is mostly untouched.

      Of course, some scared white guy would see the situation differently.

    3. Does your "family" in Portland tell you just what on God's green Earth these "protesters", after 70 nights, are protesting against? They don't look good on video. The entire world can see it.

    4. It is no longer just the mob in downtown. The bulk of the remaining night shift police force is involved in controlling these mobs every night, so the rest of the criminal class in the area has free reign. Shootings are a daily event now. These used to be rare, and yes, One Brow. I am scared. What I see with my own eyes is frightening. To those in Portland that are supportive of what is happening it is of course, "Move along nothing to see here". Finally, why do you have to bring race into this? What does it have to do with how I feel about what is happening? I will take this time to remind you that these mobs are almost exclusively white. I have no fear from the black folks that live in Portland. They are not the problem. Their businesses were looted and destroyed along with everyone else's in Downtown, and now with the looting of convenience stores and other small businesses in the east side, some owned by blacks. How are they helped by looting of their businesses?

    5. whitewall,

      My family isn't too involved directly, but the protestors have been pretty clear they are fighting for better treatment of black people by police officers and greater police accountability (I follow the blog of an occasional Portland protestor). The news media does not put that message out.

    6. Salvadorhardin,

      I was too dismissive of your experiences and fears, and I apologize for that. I'll try to listen better next time.

      All across the country, the protests have been accompanied by people only interested in taking advantage of chaos, and also by people deliberately trying to make the protestors look bad. The destruction is likely being caused by all three groups, and I don't know in what proportion, or how to stop it (unless paying less attention to the central protest, and more to the outskirts is an option).

    I agree that the Proud Boys and neo-Confederates offer violence, destruction, racism, hatred for Western Civilization, and most especially a virulent hatred for America, but they tend to be Republican.

    1. Wow! You are really living in crazyland. Keep telling yourself this stuff.

    2. What's the part you think is wrong? You don't think the Proud boys are violent? The neo-Confederates? Howmany exmples would you like?

    3. One Brow, It's a waste of time to discuss anything with you as you engage in the classic prog tactic of "deflect, deflect, deflect" combined with just make things up (e.g., Russia Collusion) and distort, distort. The cities are not melting down because of anything done by the Proud Boys or some Neo-Confederates. Anita/BLM/DNC thugs are attacking police with rocks, explosives, lasers, gasoline, etc., attacking innocent citizens (including my sister in Austin), burning cars and buildings, and looting stores. The murder rate in all prog cities has skyrocketed not because of the Proud Boys, but because of murderous activities by Democrat constituencies. They are being encouraged in this by the prog wing of the DNC who want the police defunded and average citizens disarmed before the mob.

    4. Thank You, WLA!
      Even if you simply stated the obvious!
      Tis true, when one owns the joint the
      'Landlord' or Barkeep needs to clean-up
      the crap deposited by the dirtbags,
      before it stinks-up the joint!

    5. DiploMad,

      The cities are not melting down, period. The only reason the Proud Boys, et. al., don't cause the same level of damage is because 1) they get fist-bumps from the police instead of riot gear, and 2) there just aren't as many of them.

      I'm sure you've heard of escalation. Where the police form a history of responding with riot gear and tear gas even toward peaceful protestors, the response they get will also be more violent. You see much less violence when police appear in standard uniforms. I'm sure you think I have cause and effect reversed, but if you look carefully into the timeline of the protests, you'll see the riot gear precedes the violence rather than following it.

      Again, as far as "Russian Collusion", I won't say anything stronger than the latest report from a Senate Intelligence committee dominated by Republicans. Take it up with them.

    6. And your waste product continues to drip drip drip from your damaged psyche, out your flapping maw, NOBROW!

      As the host kindly wrote to you here, just "1" post ago:

      "One Brow, It's a waste of time to discuss anything with you as you engage in the classic prog tactic of "deflect, deflect, deflect" combined with just make things up (e.g., Russia Collusion) and distort, distort..."

      TRY to Read for comprehension, if you can - then go out in your backyard take a dump, puke, piss, spit, take a pill, a swig, howl at the moon, but EXPELL the jackassery you continue to dump on the Blog carpet! And NO, your belated non-apologies offer nothing to redeem you, but it might work on your creator?

      Just some fatherly advice, as I know there's little HOPE for morally bankrupt Anti-American A$$wholes, short of canceling their ticket -- so till then, Bon~Voyage useless & brow-less.

      Thank you for the advice, but engaging in a discussion is just a rare bonus in these parts. I don't expect it.

    8. We see every night sho is doing the damage, One Brow. It's not some Hawaiian shirted mythical right wing group. It's the leftards and their froends, first and foremost, aided and abetted by your elected idiots.

    9. Merkwürdigliebe,
      The pictures show the group is not mythical. I am curious how, upon seeing an act of violence, you can immediately discern it when the person is apolitical (the vast majority of arrests), right-wing (next-largest group), or left-wing (smallest group of arrestees).
