      As I've noted elsewhere, I'm working through Chernow's biography on Alexander Hamilton. A significant issue in the early US government was reacting to the French Revolution and the new forming government. Louis XVI and other French elites had backed the US Revolution and were massacred - along with priests and others - by the hundreds if not thousands.

      Chernow's brief account of the French Revolution is chilling in its reminder of how deadly violent populism can be - especially when it is unrestrained by any sort of convictions about unalienable rights.

      Antifa and the like are exhibiting precisely that pattern. And, because of the meta-narrative backing the allegedly aggrieved, much of the media gives it sympathetic reporting or ignores it altogether.

      One driver of one car snaps in a fracas and horribly kills a young woman. That is a detestable act. But few have fairly reported the violence wrought by the counter-demonstrators. Almost no one will draw the clear line between cop-killing rhetoric and the wave of police assassinations.

      Scary days.

              I'll be looking forward to watching that. Should be interesting. Hopefully it will expose some of the "establishment" liberals backing these idiots.

              The video is most damning to the media. That's a shocker.
