Trump, violence, MoveOn.org: it’s 1968 all over again
Who backs both MoveOn.org and Hillary?
Do anti-GOP convention street protesters plan to incite violence?

History comes around again to bite you like a louse in a hotel-room bedsheet, long after management was supposed to have sanitized the place.
In 1968, 10,000 anti-war protestors at the Chicago Democratic Convention went up against local police and National Guardsmen. The violent riots had a reverse effect.
Americans, aghast at what they were seeing on their television sets, turned out in droves a few months later and elected Republican pro-war candidate Richard Nixon.
It was odd, to say the least, that the protest groups chose to show up at the Democratic Convention. The hand-picked Presidential nominee, Hubert Humphrey, was in favor of continuing the Vietnam War, but the Republicans were a greater threat in that regard.
The days of violence in Chicago made Nixon giggle. He couldn’t have asked for a better show.
And now we have MoveOn.org, funded in part by George Soros (see here), ramping up their nationwide protests against Trump. They’re clearly pointing toward the Republican Convention in July in Cleveland (see also this).
Their whole strategy depends on how much blame for their protests and violence can be successfully attributed to Trump himself—which is the clear media strategy. The standard line is: Trump started this whole thing with his incendiary statements about immigration and Muslims; therefore, everything that happens after that is his fault. He is the prime mover. The protests are merely a response to him. “The blood is on his hands.”
If that can be sold, and if the action in Cleveland in July can rise to a new height of violence, then a significant number of fence-sitting voters would decide to opt for Hillary, who will, of course, position herself as the peacemaker and the uniter.
It doesn’t matter that she’s never met a war she didn’t like (or could invent). She’s the “calm force that will lead the nation into eight years of collective tolerance and sanity.”
In other words, Hillary stands to benefit the most from the planned and highly organized attacks on Trump.
It’s not hard to trace a connection between Soros, one of the money men behind MoveOn.org, and Hillary Clinton. Just for starters, as Politico noted, on 1/31/16 (“George Soros donates $8 million to boost Hillary”):
“George Soros in December donated $6 million to the leading super PAC supporting Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, marking the return of the billionaire financier as among the biggest givers in all of American politics. The massive check brings to $8 million the Hungarian-born investor’s total 2015 giving to pro-Clinton groups.”
Apparently, though, these obvious connections don’t rate major coverage in mainstream media.
Let’s see: the man who funds the group who is organizing protests against Trump is also funding the candidate who stands to gain the most from the protests. No, nothing important here. Just a coincidence.
The 2016 election season in America is devolving to resemble what happened in 1968. It remains to be seen whether the ‘68 reverse/rebound Nixon victory will now turn into the Hillary victory.
Hillary, Soros, MoveOn, and their media allies (the useful idiots) are betting it will. They think it’s their game to run and control.
How far could the anti-Trump forces go this summer? How far could they go in pushing an agenda of “societal change,” which demands a government-centered solution for all ills and problems? “The government must transform America on behalf of equality”—whatever that generality is supposed to mean.
The basic thrust of these forces would be to raise government power to new heights, fantasizing that it would somehow be turned toward “broad positive outcomes for the underclass.”
Well, for instruction, we can look back to another event that occurred in the summer of the 1968, in Paris. Most Americans don’t even remember it, but it was a searing stroke across the landscape. Its vision, if you can call it that, extended further than anything that could happen now in America—and the stunning outcome is one of those “teachable moments.”
From Wikipedia (“May 1968 events in France”):
“The volatile period of civil unrest in France during May 1968 was punctuated by demonstrations and massive general strikes as well as the occupation of universities and factories across France. At the height of its fervor, it virtually brought the entire economy of France to a dramatic halt.”
“The unrest began with a series of student occupation [of colleges] protests against capitalism, consumerism and traditional institutions, values and order. It then spread to factories with [Leftist union] strikes involving 11 million workers, more than 22% of the total population of France at the time, for two continuous weeks.”
“The student occupations and wildcat general strikes initiated across France were met with forceful confrontation by university administrators and police. The de Gaulle administration’s attempts to quell those strikes by police action only inflamed the situation further, leading to street battles with the police in the Latin Quarter, followed by the spread of general strikes and occupations throughout France. De Gaulle went to a French military base in Germany, and after returning dissolved the National Assembly, and called for new parliamentary elections for 23 June 1968. Violence evaporated almost as quickly as it arose. Workers went back to their jobs, and when the elections were finally held in June, the Gaullist party emerged even stronger than before.” (emphasis added)
In other words, government power rose to a new height. That was the outcome. That was how this towering rebellion came to a close.
If, in the summer of 2016, the “forces of change” in America stage vast protests and initiate violence, on the pretext that they are trying to defeat Donald Trump, the result will be a mandate for federal government to assume more control.
Hillary Clinton, would certainly embrace that mandate with open arms.
She would be the Nixon and the De Gaulle.
She would call her power agenda “uniting the people” or “equality together” or “it takes a village” or “respect for diverse points of view and cultures” or “a new day for America.”
Whatever she calls it, it would be 1968 all over again.
“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Everybody knows that chunk of wisdom. But how many people are willing and able to remember what they need to, in order to understand what is unrolling before us now:
—Designed protests that, no matter what they espouse, will deliver more power to government, under the banner of a better life for all.
And if you salute that banner, I have condos for sale on Mars. The summer nights are heavenly.
