Good Morning Visionaries:

I want to thank Tom Hansen for posted my Daily News version of this column,
and also thanks to him for the passage from Wilson's blog that prompted the
piece.  The long version contains these paragraphs on the so-called Violent


*Tens of Thousands of Peaceful Protestors*

A week after the Charlottesville tragedy, tens of thousands protested
peacefully in Boston, Atlanta, New Orleans, Dallas, and Laguna Beach. An
estimated 40,000 showed up in Boston, and apart from 27 arrests for
disorderly conduct, the protestors were peaceful. A small group harassed a
man wearing a Trump hat, but the Associated Press reported that “other
counter-protesters intervened and helped the man safely over a fence where
the conservative rally was to be staged.”

*Many False Claims about Antifa*

Black-clad members of Antifa, a small anti-Fascist organization, have been
responsible for disrupting dozens of right-wing talks and rallies across
the country.  Antifa and peaceful protestors are not allies, whereas the
LOS, the KKK, and the neo-Nazis coordinate their hate-filled actions. I
join many others in strongly condemning Antifa’s attempts to undermine free
speech rights.

Charges that Antifa has committed violence against individual white
nationalists have not been proved or are outright false. Snopes.com has
shown that an alleged Antifa manual that urges violence and a flyer calling
for the murder of white children are fraudulent documents. The anti-Semitic
language in the latter is actually evidence that it was made by a white
nationalist. An alleged Antifa knife attack on a man in Sheridan, Colorado
on August 24 turned out to be self-inflicted.  See more exoneration of
Antifa at snopes.com.

*Right-Wing Extremists Kill 275; Antifa Kills None*

Marilyn Mayo, senior research fellow for the Anti-Defamation League’s
Center on Extremism, reports that “over the past decade, extremists of
every stripe have killed
Americans, and 74 percent of those killings were committed by right wing
extremists. Only 2 percent of those deaths were at the hands of left wing
extremists,” and none by Antifa members.  Antifa activists do not carry
guns, but most white nationalists do.

So much for the Violent Left.  Fake News! Sad!

A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they
shall never sit in.

-Greek proverb

“Enlightenment is man’s emergence from his self-imposed immaturity.
Immaturity is the inability to use one’s understanding without guidance
from another. This immaturity is self- imposed when its cause lies not in
lack of understanding, but in lack of resolve and courage to use it without
guidance from another. Sapere Aude! ‘Have courage to use your own
understand-ing!—that is the motto of enlightenment.

--Immanuel Kant
