The Summer Of Hate

Note: Because it is the Friday of the first long weekend of the summer, I am putting aside the Crayola and recycling some material from behind the green door so I can get outside and take care of a project before the rains come. There will be fresh content throughout the weekend behind the green door. Otherwise, have a wonderful weekend and I will be back on Monday.


The attempted assassination this week of the Slovakian Prime Minister, Robert Fico, did not get much attention in American media. Slovakia is a tiny country tucked away in the eastern most part of what people consider Europe. Most Americans have no reason to care, but a century ago few Americans had a reason to care about Sarajevo either. A lot of history can happen in a small country sometimes.

The reason this could be the case is Slovakia is one of the countries that exists in the gray zone between East and West. It is part of the Visegrád Group, a political and cultural alliance of former Soviet client states. Like Orbán of Hungary, Fico is a nationalist who won office in the teeth of American efforts. There has been whispers that he could get regime changed due to his stance on Project Ukraine.

Like Orbán, Fico is an old school anti-communist, which means he is an anti-ideologue and that means he sees American liberalism with suspicion. In the Visegrád countries, it has been noted that most of the leading pro-American liberals used to be communists, with many having been part of the communist regime. They quickly changed out of their worker costumes and put on expensive suits.

The guy who tried to kill Fico is described as a leftist, but in the context of this part of the world that means he is pro-Western. Since winning election, Fico has been subjected to relentless media campaigns from American NGO’s criticizing him for his stance on Project Ukraine. There has been a lot of talk about getting rid of Fico by any means necessary, a dog whistle for the liberal fanatics.

The reason this may be a foreshadowing of what lies ahead is the reaction in Western media to the news of the assassination attempt. Instead of condemning the use of political violence, which would make sense from the perspective of people wielding power, the popinjays of the chattering skull circuit smugly suggested that Fico deserved to get shot and that maybe it was not a terrible thing.

Keep in mind that the people who turn up on regime platforms are repeating the opinions they hear on the cocktail circuit. This is even more so with Europe as these are all client states, so much of what makes up their politics is the solon culture where pretentious people compete to see who can stake out the cleverest pro-American position while making it sound European.

The reason this matters is the rhetoric aimed at guys like Orbán and Fico is the same we hear directed at Trump or any other skeptic of the liberal project. The first bullet out of the gun, so to speak, is to label them pro-Putin. Both Orbán and Fico have been given the “Russian collusion” treatment by the chattering classes. Both are called threats to “our democracy” for having won elections.

Now think about the situation with Trump. The regime has thrown everything at the guy over the last two years, but he keeps chugging along. Not only that, but his popularity is also probably higher now, and more intense, than when he ran in 2016 or 2020. At the same time, the liberal hatred for the man is now soul defining. If any means necessary was justified in 2020, it is even more true in 2024.

This is the dynamic of political violence. We tend to think of political violence as organized bands of politically motivated actors. Maybe they are sponsored by the ruling class or opposed to the ruling class, but they are organized. In reality, most political violence is the result of disorganized partisans who are set off by inflammatory rhetoric, as we saw with Black Lives Matter.

The other ingredient to political violence is that the people in charge become comfortable with it, justifying it when it serves their interests and overreacting to it when they need an excuse to use power outside the moral limits. The reaction to the Fico shooting is an example of the former and the ongoing suppression of J6 protestors is an example of the latter.

Probably the most important piece of the puzzle is disconfirmation. Political violence comes from the side that thinks the forces of good are at risk of losing, so something must be done to turn the tide. Trump was never supposed to win, so they created the conspiracy theory about Russian collusion to explain it and when that did not solve the problem, they resorted to violence.

In the fullness of time, we will look back at the shooting of Republican politicians at a pickup baseball game in 2017 as the start of the political violence cycle. James Hodgkinson was an anti-Trump kook, but the anti-Trump kooks were not shamed by his actions into toning down their rhetoric. Instead, they shrugged it off and ratcheted up their attacks on Trump and Trump supporters.

This is why the Fico shooting could be important. We are about to enter the summer of hate when the regime pulls out all the stops to defeat Trump. There are hundreds of potential James Hodgkinson types thinking they could be a hero to their cause by taking their shot. The FBI is always working up plans to create a green flag event in case the regime needs to use violence. This could be the kick-off to a wild summer.

In the fullness of time, we will look back at the shooting of Republican politicians at a pickup baseball game in 2017 as the start of the political violence cycle.  My marker is the political violence inflicted on primary rally goers in Chicago and San Jose in 2016. It was no doubt state-sponsored and had assistance from the FBI and other gangster-type government paramilitaries. If you recall, Trump’s GOP primary opponents (Cruz and Rubio spring to mind but there were others) were generally supportive of the violence. Things only escalated afterwards. The state propaganda organs, as hard as it is… Read more »

It seems to me, as a layman that a bad recession is coming, likely in the next year. China is a major driver of the world economy now and China is clearly in a deep recession. It’s been 16 years since the last major recession and it was very short lived. We had 14 years of money printing in the interim. I think we had a technical recession in 22, but everyone denied that it even was a recession. If it happens under Trump, he’ll be blamed and he will demand the printing presses be dialed up to 11.

Fico assasination (attempt) is just another piece of evidence that the enemy is willing to do anything to get their way, while their supposed opposition, the conservatives, just follow rules and refuse to “stoop to their level”.
And dissidents just talk, because what else can they do, with no allies among the elites?

This will continue until someone decides to stoop to their level and put a stop to it.

A disgruntled Regime faction would be the prime candidate to put a stop to at least some of it. For example, I’ve read some rather convincing cases that the CIA has seized domestic operations and control from the FBI, which is seen as too white, too philo-Semitic and too cautious. That could spiral into a range war pretty rapidly and the FBi might emerge as a disgruntled faction with enough heft to present a problem. The intelligence services also have wrested control from the military of Project Ukraine and other fuckeries, and when they go south that may ignite a… Read more »

The Tucker-Prince interview was interesting. It sounds like Tucker is fairly serious about his personal security measures.

Not sure what to make of Prince. Suddenly the guy who ran America’s Wagner Group is an anti-establishment cash and privacy advocate?

Though, I think the real reason Prince flies coach, which he wouldn’t admit, is that he figures TPTB would be more reluctant to down an entire airliner just to take him out.

It’s interesting to read about the 1960s and 1970s and see how much left-wing political violence there was. It was actual violence, like bombings, not feds telling other feds how to kidnap a governor, or walking through a building after the cops wave you through. Yet, just like the softball shooting, it’s been mostly swept under the rug by the media, and stated matter-of-factly right before they move on to talking about white rage, MAGA extremists, insurrectionists, and discussing how White people are the problem and they need to go.

If there was any doubt that the fix is in and a true “uniparty” exists, I just heard a report that Republican lawmaker in Ohio, where Biden failed to file for inclusion on the ballot in time, were working with “their Democratic colleagues” to figure a way to get him included on the ballot. As I heard the Ohio Speaker of the House(R) say on the radio,” it’s the right thing to do”. Absurdity is so normal now, we are going to have to come up with a new definition.

Mostly just “Peanut” dissing “Ray-Ray” followed by spray-n-pray at local weekend cookouts in select neighborhoods that are located on tragic dirt.

Nixon deserves to be the face of the Vietnam war. He swept into office on the basis of “his secret plan” to end the war. His secret plan turned out to be “same old, same old” on steroids.

Maybe. That was kind of a one-off during the primaries, and the anti-war left called him out for it. After cementing the nomination, he met with Johnson and agreed to not make the war political, then reneged by putting out commercials with pictures of Vietnam next to Humphrey.

His main emphasis was on law and order (largely because of civil rights violence and the bloodshed at the Democratic Convention in Chicago), the American Dream, and something about the end of the long dark night in America.

If the system needs Trump so bad, then why is the system working so hard to delineate between itself and Trump every minute of the day? Even the lowest IQ Trump supporter can see the system hates him, so I don’t see how putting Trump in again as President would make anyone believe the system is now worth fighting and dying for.

The shame of it all, from the system’s point of view, is that Trump could have been so easily managed and manipulated but it just couldn’t help itself and went full mask-off, which is my point.

They could also weaponize our psychotic cops. Frankly, I’m surprised the Roger Fortson shooting has not been weaponized with BLM protests. Maybe it is because it’s Florida? While not an outrageous shooting, I do think it’s a bad shooting. If anything, being a bad shooting is probably what disqualifies it as a BLM protest generator. They love an obviously guilty person being justifiably shot as the BLM martyr.

Shouldn’t. It could easily be the other way around, but the higher the interest rate, the more incentive to save, and the less cash sloshes around buying up new grills and spinners.

Impeachment is not conviction. Doubtful even impeachment in that manner would pass Constitutional muster.

I scrolled through all the comments and I’m surprised no one mentions the supreme Court. I feel like with all the stories in the media, that they might be prepping us for an epsteining. But on the other hand, does the Biden admin have it in them to do it?

Complicating the Summer of Hate, is the ongoing coldish turning hot civil war among elites. Item 1: Democrats / NGOs / the Media (yes, I’m repeating myself) have a new line of attack that is going to be used by the DoJ: Trump “conspired” (by saying it publicly) that he wants Oil company donations so he can tear up Biden’s “good save the planet” restrictions on oil drilling, exploration, and refining. That’s good for the Greens, not so great for a US Military tasked with defeating China (who may or may not be set to invade Taiwan next month) and… Read more »

There’s a scene in the 2023 Disney + Marvel series Secret Invasion where the character War Machine (an active US serviceman if I recall correctly) makes some off-hand remark about wanting to carpet-bomb Slovakia…

I think “salon”. Maybe the spell check was built by an unemployable classicist.

Or a Filipino. They refer to their legislators as Solons without any hint of irony. Which is ironic.

Z – I know you hate libertarians, but what do you think of my idea of libertarianism. That is to say that I want to increase liberty, even if it means doing unlibertarian things. Like I think the state seizing control of blackrock might actually increase personal liberty.

Calling state seizure of corporations libertarianism is kind of like calling what we currently have a democracy. It may be the right thing to do, but legitimacy demands more honesty than that.

“…seizing control of blackrock” and all the other transnational corporations isn’t ideological. It is akin to removing a would-be murderers hands from around your neck. There is NO way out of this that does not involve nationalizing (then destroying) all the transnationals. No foreign citizenship, and no foreign property ownership, and no foreigners owning property inside our country, are bare minimums.

I’ve often thought of these prohibitions and wondered how our pol’s would explain our laxity on these issues in light of their overwhelming support/use in other countries. Of course, they’d use that tired old saw, “…it’s not who we are…”, a non-explanation if there ever was one.

Oh well, one can dream…
