Execrable conservatives haven’t had much to say about rampaging violence, even when conservatives are under attack! From Ann Coulter at anncoulter.com:
I wonder if Milo Yiannopoulos, Ben Shapiro, Charles Murray and Heather Mac Donald are reacting to these antifa riots the same way I am.
I mean, not that any one of us would enjoy the sight of reporters being trapped, chased through the streets and physically assaulted by antifa goons. Or liberal Democrats having to defend their homes with guns in Saint Louis, MO. Or the president hiding in the White House bunker as antifa lays waste to Lafayette Park. Or the mayor of Seattle WA, finally shutting down the CHAZ “summer of love” when the mob came to her house.
They’re all “peaceful protesters” — until they come near you.
Imagine that instead of being a president, mayor or reporter in the vicinity of mentally unbalanced, historically illiterate, thuggishly violent lunatics … imagine that you, personally, are the window they want to smash.
Now you know what it’s like to be a conservative trying to give a speech on a college campus today. (Thanks for all the help, guys!)
Neither the conservative media nor elected Republicans gave a crap about the left-wing paramilitary force that’s been mobilizing since Trump’s election.
Through it all, conservatives stuck their heads in the sand and rationalized insane liberal violence. It was the path of least resistance — and also a smart business move. Cowards could pitch themselves as the “reasonable” ones, then sit back and watch as their more popular conservative competitors were deplatformed, shadow-banned and outright canceled.
