Paranoia? Not When it Comes to Today’s GOP

So, the whole “Democrats are a mob” thing, the whole “Liberals are threatening us with violence” thing, that particular slanderous right-wing spin follows the appearance, in some cases, of guys in masks claiming to be antifa engaging in acts of violence at demonstrations. Sometimes the other demonstrators know who they are–or who they say they are–and sometimes they don’t. Does no one remember the simple, oft-used stratagem of employing provocateurs? “Provocateur: An undercover agent who incites suspected persons to partake in or commit criminal acts.” When we consider what the right was willing to do to shoehorn Kavanaugh into SCOTUS, and their general willingness to engage in flat out deception, we realize that hired provocateurs may indeed be at work.
