City of Berkeley planning to fight violent leftist groups with bubbles, laughter yoga and sponge noodles

Berkeley mayor Jesse Arreguin
All the leftist stupidity is coming out now.

Many progressives are apoplectic. I mean, walking around in tears, bemoaning the end of civilization, that sort of thing.  Some are out in the streets, burning Trump effigies as is done in Iran and other primitive 3rd world regions. Some are openly tweeting for "presidential assassination".

Unbelievable.  It's good the election had this outcome, just to expose the stupidity, shallowness, and treachery of the leftist progressive mind.

Now, the city of Berkeley is planning to oppose left-wing violence with "laughter yoga," singing and bubbles. The liberal city - particularly the University of California-Berkeley - has become the center of an ongoing debate over free speech.

In February, the University of California-Berkeley was engulfed by violent protests after a mob of radical, “anti-fascist” activists shut down Milo Yiannopoulos’ event at the school.

In April, Ann Coulter's scheduled speech on campus was canceled due to threats of violence.

In an email chain, received by multiple city council members and Mayor Jesse Arreguin, city volunteer commissioner Phoebe Anne Sorgen suggested starting a peace force to stop the violence with things like “bubbles,” “singing” and “laughter yoga.”

“Envision Wavy Gravy, bubbles, singing, laughter yoga! Occupella. Buddhist Peace Meditators. Fencing with sponge noodles,” Sorgen wrote. “Will Edwin set up the Empathy tent? How about a volleyball game in the middle of the park and/or a square dance? Will Code Pink pls bring peace symbol cookies to pass out, and daisies.”

On Fox & Friends, Tucker Carlson said Sorgen is painting a picture of the parking lot at a Grateful Dead show. "That's not the profile of the person throwing rocks through windows at Berkeley or shouting down conservative speakers," Tucker said. "These people aren't liberals. They're not going to be moved by yoga, or by sponge sword fights."

Carlson went on to say these people are violent authoritarians who want to shut down dissenting opinions by force.

"These are not, kind of, smelly, furry, peaceful liberals that we grew up with at all. This is a totally different variety," Tucker said. "They're not going to participate in any of that stuff. It's like a joke actually."




You may recall that Berkeley mayor Jesse Arreguin has been connected to the violent leftist organization BAMN.

From the Daily Caller:

Jesse Arreguin, mayor of Berkeley, California, has been revealed to be involved with a violent, far-left group known as “BAMN,” meaning “By Any Means Necessary.”

Indeed, Arreguin’s Facebook page shows him belonging to BAMN, according to The Gateway Pundit.

The group formally describes itself on Facebook as “The Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration & Immigrant Rights, and Fight for Equality By Any Means Necessary (BAMN).”

BAMN is not just any “liberal” or “leftist” group. It is a group whose members have engaged in violence, and is affiliated with the violent antifascist, or antifa, movement.

During the Obama Administration's new progressive era, citizens and business somehow became the enemies of our federal government, which launched attacks on us and our rights verbally, legally, and in regulation. The net effect of this was to concentrate power and wealth in Washington and among the smug liberal elites who are certain they know what is best for all of us and that, in our ignorance, we should be forced to comply.

This is expressly not the intent of our limited federal government.

The voters rejected this agenda by voting for the Great Disruptor, Donald Trump. In truth, they would have done it sooner if not stymied by the Progressive narrative that voting against Obama was "racist." Okay, progressives, you got away with that one, but no more.

America does not want to be ruled by a smug, know-it-all progressive elite that seizes control of the federal government to force us to align with their false leftist narratives.

If Democrats want to be relevant again, they should try using the actual methods of science--assess what works and why, and advocate for more of it--instead of trying to twist and distort isolated facts to fit a predetermined ideological narrative. Progressive economics do not work. They have never worked.

Every twenty or thirty years, Americans forget how disastrous progressive governance is and allow themselves to be manipulated into electing radical leftists to office--Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and Barack Obama most recently.

Since progressive policies would never be accepted at face value, leftists are obliged to lie to us, to manipulate the media, and to use the force of the federal government to coerce compliance. Control over the mechanisms of government and a compliant media confuse Progressives into thinking that they are getting away with it.

The 2016 elections reminded them that the American people, whom they disparage and observe like zoo animals, are not stupid. Progressive government has been turned out of power for the next 20 or 30 years. Good riddance.

This leaves progressives threadbare and empty of ideas. They never had new ideas anyway, just tired old ones that didn't work. May they return to the center, so that we again have two parties that care about all Americans.

Democrats have no power. They will have to run in two years on the basis of what they have done in a Trump presidency. They have two choices: obstruct, or be constructive.

They can say what they want to about working with Trump, but they're going to have a hard time accommodating themselves to what that means. They have spent the last 8 years running roughshod over the norms of governance, and Republicans--whom they see as worse enemies than Iran, North Korea, and Russia.

It says here that they will obstruct, complain, demonize, whine, criticize, hector, and try to manipulate the media and electorate to go along.
