Trump should support ANYBODY from the right who will primary Ryan. Including personal appearances, $$, whatever it takes! Ryan has got to go. He's Cassius Longinus without the toga. And the pugio...

Four magic words - the greater global good

Translation swap US nationalism, culture, ethics, and sovereignty for global governance by unelected bureaucrats. All for your own good of course.

FWIW, Snopes rates this as "False." http://www.snopes.com/paul-ryan-endorsed-antifa/

Regardless, I want Ryan out, while at the same time I love the reference to lean and hungry Cassius.

Thanks. Here's the facebook post that the fake “antifa” Twitter account @CambridgeAntifa used as the basis of a meme purportedly quoting House Speaker Paul Ryan as endorsing the anti-fascist group

"Let There Be No Confusion
Speaker Paul Ryan
Monday, August 21, 2017

I was struck by the tone Heather Heyer’s parents took at her memorial service. Here they are suddenly grieving and saying goodbye to their daughter, taken by an act of domestic terrorism. And instead of turning to anger, they call for healing and forgiveness. They set a powerful example.
When this all happened last Saturday, I was in the mountains with my family. Our annual camping trip is the kind of time away we really cherish these days. Of course, the escape was short-lived, jolted back to reality by what happened in Charlottesville.

I felt the range of emotions that so many of us did. Anger, bewilderment, sadness. As I said then, the views that fueled this spectacle are repugnant. My hope was that the nation would unite in opposition to this bigotry.

The immediate condemnations from left, right, and center affirmed that there is no confusion about right and wrong here.

There are no sides. There is no other argument. We will not tolerate this hateful ideology in our society.

I still firmly believe this hate exists only on the fringes. But so long as it exists, we need to talk about it. We need to call it what it is. And so long as it is weaponized for fear and terror, we need to confront it and defeat it.

That is why we all need to make clear there is no moral relativism when it comes to neo-Nazis. We cannot allow the slightest ambiguity on such a fundamental question.

If America stands for anything, it is the idea that the condition of your birth doesn’t affect the outcome of your life. The notion that anyone is intrinsically superior to anyone else runs completely counter to our founding principles. Those principles make America special. They by no means make us perfect. We may never fully eradicate this scourge. After all, this republic is defined by its often winding pursuit of a more perfect union.

But it is that chase that sets us apart. It is the notion we are always trying to be better. This goes especially for our leaders. Those of us entrusted with the privilege to serve and represent the American people have an obligation to challenge us to push beyond the passions of the moment.

So this is not a legislative issue. And it certainly isn’t a political one. Let’s not just reduce this to one of the partisan squabbles of the day. It is so much bigger than all that.

This is a test of our moral clarity. The words we use and the attitudes we carry matter. Yes, this has been a disheartening setback in our fight to eliminate hate. But it is not the end of the story. We can and must do better. We owe it to Heather Heyer, and to all our children.I look forward to talking more about this tonight at my CNN town hall in Racine, Wisconsin."

What a sly devil Ryan is. While I note Ryan does not state he shares the same goals as Antifa, his use of language is not very precise. Ryan lumps those who honestly came to protest removing Lee's statue and to protest political correctness squashing free speech with white supremecists. He tacitly accepts the left's definition that all white people are white supremicists and neo-Nazis. Ryan was very disappointed that Trump did not focus his condemnation on one side but instead mentioned that there were both violent and non-violent protesters on both sides

One can see why the false meme was easy for so many to accept. It was a well done 'false flag'. Day by day it becomes more difficult to discern what is likely going on.

Paul Ryan: Trump 'messed up' Charlottesville response
By Lauren Fox, CNN
Updated 2:04 AM ET, Tue August 22, 2017

" (CNN)House Speaker Paul Ryan said Monday he believed President Donald Trump "messed up" in his response to the recent racial violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, when he equated neo-Nazis and white supremacists with counterprotesters.

"I do believe that he messed up in his comments on Tuesday when it sounded like a moral equivocation or at the very least moral ambiguity when we need extreme moral clarity," Ryan told CNN's Jake Tapper at a town hall in Racine, Wisconsin, referencing a news conference Trump had last week. "

Jerk. Even Nancy Pelosi recognizes antiFa is inherently violent. Why can't you?

The following day Nancy came to her senses:

Nancy Pelosi, in Denver visit, says violent “antifa” activists “should be prosecuted” and don’t represent Democrats
U.S. House minority leader says condemnation shouldn’t be taken as equivalence with white supremacists on the far right

By Jon Murray | jmurray@denverpost.com | The Denver Post
PUBLISHED: August 30, 2017 at 4:55 pm | UPDATED: August 30, 2017 at 11:56 pm

..............................................................
An editorial writer for The Denver Post cited Sunday’s violence in Berkeley and asked, “Is there a segment of the left that is out of control?”

Here was Pelosi’s response, in full:

“No, I think if there’s some people who are acting in a violent way, that they should be prosecuted. I don’t care who they are, where they are, whatever organization they belong to. You’re talking (about) some individuals. You’re not talking about the far left of the Democratic Party — they’re not even Democrats. A lot of them are socialist or anarchist or whatever.

“Violence by anybody is to be rejected and dealt with, but that’s not who we are, no. And there’s no equivalence between … Look, people are out there heiling Hitler and then you have a group that is antifa — anti-fascist; they’ve been there forever — some people may have infiltrated them. We’ll see. But that is not an equivalence, in my view.”
