On Thursday, Sept. 17, left-wing extremists plan to initiate a so-called “siege” of the White House slated to continue til at least the 2020 presidential election.
The “White House Siege,” as it’s been dubbed, is being put together by Adbusters, a radical far-left Canadian non-profit that for some reason is obsessed with events occurring here in the United States and was responsible for Occupy Wall Street.
It’s not clear why they don’t occupy, say, the Prime Minister’s Residence …
On September 17, 2020 we come together in DC to lay siege to the @whitehouse for 50 days of nonviolent protest.
Why? Because we will not let @realdonaldtrump steal the election!
This is the #WhiteHouseSiege and you’ve been invited.

Featured on the non-profit’s website, AdBusters.org, is disturbing literature that calls for American anti-Trump zealots to “spark a revolution” through a “strategic occupation” that “accumulates, amplifies, goes global.”
“#Whitehousesiege will electrify the U.S. election season — and it doesn’t stop there. Drawing wind from #BLM, #MeToo, and #ExtinctionRebellion and protests against Trump’s lethal bungling of coronavirus, we’ll inspire a global movement of systemic change — a Global Spring — a cultural heave towards a true world order,” it reads.
This literature is doled out in so-called “Tactical Briefings” written for “redeemers, rebels and radicals,” and it contains a bevy of conspiracy theories.
“Trump is trying to steal the election . . . it’s got many of us pretty rattled . . . and things could turn very ugly very quickly as November 3rd approaches,” one briefing reads.
This conspiratorial rhetoric echoes the proclamations of congressional Democrats and the left-wing mainstream media, both of whom are convinced that President Donald Trump is trying to cheat and that if he loses, his supporters will become violent.
There’s no evidence to substantiate either theory, but that didn’t stop The Daily Beast, an arguably unserious mainstream outlet, from publishing a story last week titled, “The Left Secretly Preps for MAGA Violence After Election Day.”
This same outlet responded to news about the upcoming White House Siege by publishing a piece titled, “Trumpkins Are Losing Their Mind Over Occupy Wall Street’s Faux Plans for a White House ‘Siege.’”
This is apparently considered journalism …
Despite The Daily Beast’s mockery, the White House Siege is a real event that’s raised serious concerns about the safety of both White House officials and local residents.
In the past four months, left-wing extremists affiliated with Black Lives Matter and Antifa have have looted stores, vandalized public property and monuments, burnt businesses to the ground, attacked innocent bystanders, and even killed people.
Moreover, members of the media have repeatedly defended their behavior.

Late last month NPR ran a piece in defense of looting.
Earlier this month Vice magazine interviewed the now-deceased suspect who was credibly accused of lying in wait to murder a Trump supporter.
Last week multiple outlets, including CNN, ran propaganda pieces that portrayed one of the men who’d allegedly tried to kill 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse as a victim.

When left-wing extremists congregated near the White House in June, they hurled “projectiles including bricks, frozen water and caustic liquids” at the authorities, according to a statement issued at the time by U.S. Park Police chief Gregory T. Monahan.
“Intelligence had revealed calls for violence against the police, and officers found caches of glass bottles, baseball bats and metal poles hidden along the street,” Monahan added.
In response, the authorities first issued three warnings and then, after being ignored, used smoke canisters and pepper balls to push the extremists away.
Afterward, the media predictably sided with the extremists by distorting the truth and claiming that the authorities had unjustly fired tear gas at the protesters at the behest of the president and without any provocation whatsoever.
It took multiple statements, including from Monahan and White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, to dispel this lie and get the actual truth out there.
Acousta as usual, misreports & McEnany responds appropriately! https://t.co/oSfgtm1vNA

Left-wing extremists acted just as poorly when they congregated near the White House late last month for the last day of the Republican National Convention.
As RNC attendees were leaving the event, the extremists harassed and tried to assault them. Included among the victims were Sen. Rand Paul and his wife.
The extremists have also repeatedly set fire to the historic St. John’s Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C.
Given the way left-wing extremists invariably act, the likelihood of violence erupting at the #WhiteHouseSiege seems high, regardless of the propaganda being pushed by far-left mainstream outlets such as The Daily Beast.
Moreover, while the event is scheduled to conclude on Nov. 3, if by chance Trump wins reelection, chances are it’ll continue indefinitely …
