Police escort not shown

The Great Big We're Not Nazis We're Just Nazi Adjacent Rally in Washington DC yesterday was something less than a huge success, drawing fewer than 40 participants to save the White Race, according to the Washington Post, although other sources put the number at more like "20 to 25" or "two dozen." At least everyone could agree the turnout by counter-protesters was in the thousands, and that there were no tiki torches either. Oh, and there were some Antifa Super Soldiers yelling anti-police chants, so at least Breitbart's home for perpetual subject-changing could bitch about the media missing the real story.

The rally's organizer, Jason Kessler, had hoped for a rerun of the "Unite the Right" rally he'd helped put together in Charlottesville, Virginia last year, since that worked out so well, but the town wouldn't give him a permit this year, so he went to DC. He'd optimistically predicted 400 or so fellow advocates for "Caucasian civil rights" would show up, but that old White Genocide must be farther along than anyone knew. Still, they had a lot of police protection to keep the Violent Left from murdering them (hooray for no murder). It wasn't exactly Charlottesville 2.0 -- one counterprotester had a far better name for it: "Ctrl Alt-Right Delete."

Once they got to Lafayette Park, Kessler gave a 15-minute speech, far shorter than the two hours the rally had been planned for. His rally wasn't only outnumbered by the counterprotesters, his followers appear to have been outnumbered by journamalists, like Caleb Ecarma of Mediaite:

Kessler had surprisingly little to say about the one-year anniversary of the murder of Heather Heyer in Charlottesville. Last year, when he was still very sure he was on his way to a White House appointment, he tweeted, "Heather Heyer was a fat, disgusting Communist. Looks like it was payback time." But at a press gaggle before Sunday's rally, Kessler, when asked if he had anything to say to Heyer's mother, said he'd give her his "condolences," but then blamed police for not blocking off all the streets in Charlottesville last year.

Kessler also "spent much of his 15-minute speech defending last year's Unite the Right rally and insisting, despite evidence to the contrary, that most of those who attended had been nonviolent," and calling himself a brave free speech warrior, not a white nationalist. He also blamed the crappy turnout on infighting among the disunited right, and isn't that all a terrible shame.

Oh, yes, and one of his dipwad squadron, ready for whatever fight ensues when you wear a helmet, Ray-Bans, and a flag over your face, held up a very fierce newspaper thing reading "Protect the Endangered Species: Stop White Genocide," which is code for "I got lousy numbers in the genetic lottery."

The Two Dozen Caucasian March particpants were eventually bundled into police vans -- for their protection -- and quietly taken away before they embarrassed themselves further. Some folks on Twitter argued the presence of Antifa people ready for a fight was what kept the Nazis away, because only the fear of being beaten works against Nazis, but we're inclined to say nah, probably not -- the chance for a street fight is entirely too attractive to Nazi schmucks. On the other hand, being massively outnumbered probably didn't make them feel too confident -- and the majority of counterprotesters appear not to have been Antifa, except, of course, on Breitbart. Also, the fear of being recognized and fired after showing up at a white power rally is one of those long-term consequences that really seemed to sink in after Charlottesville.

Or maybe they all just gave up after finding out nobody would feed them.

Great GOP wordsmith Frank Luntz, the guy who gave us the "death tax" and who urged the George W. Bush administration to talk about "climate change" since it was less politically motivating than "global warming," did some more of his characteristic word magic today! While staying at the Hotel Imperial in Vienna, Austria, Luntz offered this cautionary tale about the evils of socialism, as illustrated by the shoddy conditions in a 5-star luxury hotel owned by Dubai's "Al Habtoor" conglomerate and operated by Marriott:

Talk about your grim hellholes! Apparently, there's only one elevator in the entire building, and it's been broken for three days, proving that European-style socialism is a failure that should never be imported to the USA, where -- damn it! -- all buildings work!

As some smartass pointed out, now Luntz may have to take the STAIRS, like a common Bolshevik!

We're still trying to get our heads around how a delay in getting an elevator fixed in a luxury hotel owned by the United Arab Emirati proprietors of Dubai's

  • Habtoor Grand Resort
  • Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah
  • Habtoor Palace, LXR Hotels & Resorts
  • V Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton
  • Hilton Dubai Al Habtoor City
  • Metropolitan Hotel Dubai
  • Al Habtoor Polo Resort

as well as

  • Imperial Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Vienna (Austria)
  • Hilton London Wembley (United Kingdom)
  • Hilton Beirut Habtoor Grand (Lebanon)
  • Hilton Beirut Metropolitan Palace (Lebanon)
  • President Abraham Lincoln Springfield – a DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel (United States)
  • InterContinental Budapest (Hungary)
  • The Ritz-Carlton, Budapest (Hungary)

is an example of the horrors of socialism, but then, we don't earn the big bucks like Luntz does. Austria is among the 14 richest countries in the world, so we're fairly certain it's not a commie hellhole. Then again, there is a very strong social safety net, so maybe people in subsidized housing stole all the elevator parts. Or perhaps the elevator would have been fixed sooner if only Austria didn't have such strong unions. It's a mystery.

Or maybe it's that NATIONAL socialism that's the problem, seeing as it has socialism RIGHT IN THE NAME!

Adolf Hitler, once a day labourer outside the Hotel Imperial Vienna, returned as the Führer and "delivered a speech to a rapturous crowd from [the hotel] suite's balcony, on 14 March 1938", according to

We suppose it's worth noting that the Imperial is decidedly not owned or operated by the Austrian government, where a far-Right coalition has recently imploded -- although maybe Luntz is confused about that, since official state guests are traditionally housed there. In any case, the elevator's busted, it's in Europe, Europe is socialist, and Frank Luntz is homesick for America, where no elevator ever goes unrepaired for an entire weekend. It simply has never happened because of our efficient free market!

Still, Luntz's tweet inspired some valuable reflections on how economic theory shapes the reality of everyday life. This is the kind of Austrian economics we can support.

In conclusion, capitalism always allocates resources efficiently and fairly, although that still doesn't explain why Frank Luntz has a job. And now it would be your DOKTOR ZOOM'S BIRTHDAY PARTY OPEN THREAD, if only the socialists would fix the elevator, the end.
