Warden at Ace of Spades HQ:
I have no personal investment in Donald Trump. He is a tool to punish the left and roll back their ill-gotten gains, no more and no less. If he succeeds even partially in those two things, then I’ll consider his election a win.
Further, I no longer have any investment in any particular political values, save one: The rules created by the left will be applied to the left as equally and punitively as they have applied them to the right. And when they beg for mercy, I’ll begin to reconsider. Or maybe not. Because fuck these people.
Yep. This is why I don’t particularly care that Trump is using executive orders. Some lefties are wailing about this, as though the right will somehow be shamed because our guy is doing what…their guy did, which somehow became illegitimate last week. Nope.

You all think we haven’t noticed this? Stacy McCain:
e D.C. government seems indifferent to the negative impact that these hordes of persistent beggars have on perceptions of the city, and if it bothered me, certainly it is not difficult to imagine that women in Washington fear for their safety. It’s the “Broken Windows” phenomenon, where tolerating minor public disorder sends a signal that the community is not serious about enforcing the law. And, of course, racial identity politics is a factor because the panhandlers in D.C. are black, and one can imagine the uproar that might be caused by a crackdown on Washington’s “homeless” population.
Beyond providing further proof of how shoddy the police are in D.C., what this story (and Soraya Chemaly’s column about it) shows is the way liberal arguments create distorted perceptions of reality. Feminists want to use “street harassment” as a way to demonize men and why? To encourage women to support the feminist cause and vote Democrat. But when we start taking a closer look at the facts of “street harassment,” we notice that the perpetrators aren’t likely Republican voters.
But hey, I predicted this years ago.
