but beside the point.
A study conducted at the University of Toronto concluded that extreme protest tactics such as blocking traffic, damaging property, and rioting actually reduce popular support for the political movements that employ them. [story]
All traditional, Western, liberal ideas, principles, habits, characteristics, history, culture, etc. are issues.
The Left™’s objective is to foment any and all chaos which can lead to The Revolution™ and eliminate or weaken all principles, culture, and institutions that could interfere with it.
By any means necessary, since the stories and issues and promises and absurdities they used before The Revolution™ will go down the Memory Hole after New History™ begins.
All reality and ideas that don’t serve will be changed or eliminated.
That’s why they ally themselves with movements and causes that any reasonable person would call incompatible (crime, anarchism, Islam, etc.). They will be dealt with in due course; but, first, The Revolution™.
If rioting over which way twist-ties are twisted would lead to more chaos, then it’s a legitimate issue. If the twist-tie industry adopts The Left™’s position, The Left™ will become outraged over its impact on some currently fashionable victim group.
The issue is not the issue. The Revolution™ is the issue.
