More Videos Surface of Antifa’s Violence in Charlottesville

You may recall that the Associated Press declared that Antifa was peacefully counterprotesting in Charlottesville when they were attacked. 

Watch for yourselves. 

Persons associated with “AntiFa” and “Black Lives Matter” initiated violence in Charlottesville, according toThe Rebel’s Faith Goldy who reported on the scene:

“The AntiFa and BLM guys who activated this entire violent streak that we saw today with their mace, and throwing rocks.”

Goldy captured video of what she described as “young black men” — seen in the video wearing red-black-green black racial and pan-African nationalist garb — behaving belligerently toward “ex-military guys.”

The ex-military guys were just walking through the parking lot, a bunch of young black men started inciting them, saying, “Go back home. Go back to where you came from. No one wants you here,” the sort of language, if ever, I believe, a white man were to say that towards a black men, you would see it played ad nauseum at any one of the major cable broadcasters. The double standards are just so gross, right? And that’s what people are seeing, and that’s why they’re getting more and more pissed off, and that’s why they’re becoming more and more, frankly, hard-lined in their views.

Left-wing and Democrat-aligned news media outlets such as CNN, MSNBC, and The Washington Postneglected to note the presence of communist black racial nationalist paraphernalia displayed by counter-demonstrators; instead, often describing counter-demonstrators as “anti-racist.”

Studies Are Usually Bunk, Study Shows

From the WSJ: 

The world is inundated with the manipulation of flighty studies to prove some larger point about mankind in the name of behavioral science. Pop psychologists have churned out mountains of books proving some intuitive point that turns out to be wrong. It’s “sciencey,” with a whiff of (false) authenticity.

Malcolm Gladwell is the master. In his 2008 book, “Outlier,” he argues that studies show no one is born better than anyone else. Instead success comes to those who put in 10,000 hours of practice. That does sound right, but maybe Steph Curry shoots hoops for 10,000 hours because he is better than everyone at basketball in the first place. Meanwhile I watch 10,000 hours of TV. Facing criticism, Mr. Gladwell somewhat recanted: “In cognitively demanding fields, there are no naturals.” News alert: Professional sports are cognitively demanding.

When reading people like Mr. Gladwell, you’re probably thinking many of the studies’ conclusions sound right but don’t really reflect your own experience. That’s probably because you’re not a hung-over grad student. Andrew Ferguson of the Weekly Standard studied behavioral economic studies and discovered many are done by grad students observing their peers doing trivial tasks. Then researchers draw hard conclusions from this. Rather than a study of human nature, behavioral science is, Mr. Ferguson observes, “the study of college kids in psych labs.”

Many of the studies quoted in newspaper articles and pop-psychology books are one-offs anyway. In August 2015, the Center for Open Science published a study in which 270 researchers spent four years trying to reproduce 100 leading psychology experiments. They successfully replicated only 39. Yes, I see the irony of a study debunking a study, but add to this a Nature survey of 1,576 scientists published last year. “More than 70% of researchers have tried and failed to reproduce another scientist’s experiments,” the survey report concludes. “And more than half have failed to reproduce their own experiments.”

I’ve mentioned this perviously, but here’s an article on it. 

NY Times Reporter Admits Antifa Protesters In Charlottesville Were ‘Hate-Filled’ And Violent Before Left Forces Her To Backtrack

New York Times reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg made the mistake of admitting that along with the abhorrent, violent, white supremacists who terrorized Charlottesville over the weekend, many Antifa protesters were also enacting “hate-filled” violence, as they’ve done in several other cities in recent months.

Leftists define anyone who does not agree with them as racist, fascist, KKKers, and with newly garnished epithets like homophobic and transphobic. You always know when Leftists are losing a debate. They play the race card. When they can’t get traction with the facts, they pull the race card or whatever card they need to poison the well.
