The liberal left Democrats and their communist/socialist allies are opportunists. From their overreaction to the coronavirus to the mass rioting across this country after the wrongful death of black man George Floyd to a white police officer, the original crisis each time has been lost to their political agenda, political narrative, and political social engineering. While the protests began out of anger over an alleged police brutality problem in America, of which evidence shows is not true at all, it has quickly become a well funded violent revolution with hard left money using it to steer the United States towards a condition where the original system, free market and a constitutionally limited government, are pushed into history and a new system of collectivism, secularism, and a communal ownership of property and goods is ushered in.
Be not mistaken. This is a well-orchestrated attempt to overthrow the government. Antifa is a large component it this American insurgency, and the truth is, we have seen that groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter have perfected the art of rioting
The liberal left has been planning this for a long time. The killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis was just the spark they needed to push into public view their ambitious insurgency. Floyd’s body wasn’t even cold by the time militant antifa cells across the country were mobilized along with Black Lives Matter rioters.
Nearly 30 cities in this country have experienced some form of mass protest or violent rioting, and many more have experienced smaller protests. The death toll is still small, at three the last time I checked, but the death of America is imminent if this is allowed to continue.
The riots are the explosive result of an extreme anarchist-communist movement that exists in this country, a movement that has been cheered on and fostered by the Democrat Party. The moment a window is broken the looters move in. Once the looting is finished, the fires begin to roar. Graffiti marks the attacked buildings, as if the rioters are marking their territory, all of which are anti-American and anti-police in nature.
The rioters have even been at the gates of the White House, chipping away at the barriers piece-by-piece while law enforcement struggled to respond. Bricks, and frozen water bottles, were hurled into the air, at one point striking a Secret Service officer in the head.
The rioters call themselves protesters, and their demand goes way beyond their claim of social justice. This is a revolution, a bloody revolution intended to destroy the old system so that a new Marxist ideology may emerge in force on America’s shores.
These people make no secret of their worship of communism, and past communist barbarians. They are calling for America to abolish law enforcement and capitalism. They demand regime change and the end of the rule of law under the U.S. Constitution.
The breakdown of society, they believe, must occur in order for the new system to breach the birth canal.
While in some cases it is just a matter of bad people taking advantage of the situation and trying to loot their way into a few more things, the destruction American businesses we are seeing in the riots runs hand in hand with the destruction of the economy engineered by those calling the shots regarding the coronavirus scamdemic. They hate the Free Market, so antifa and Black Lives Matter are trying to do their best to abolish it. They want to stop any chance of an economic recovery once we take our masks off and reopen our country. The country is already wounded due to impeachment and COVID-19, so this is their chance, in their minds, to deliver a knock-out punch.
And if their techniques seem extreme, remember, to them the ends justify the means. This is not just a case of riots in the streets. To them, this is war, a bloody revolution to finish off America’s System of Liberty once and for all. It is all designed to destabilize our country, so the violence will continue as long as they can, and the mantra to defund the police will become louder and louder.
Racism, however, is simply an excuse. The goal is not to end racism, or to stop police brutality. The goal is to end Liberty, shred the U.S. Constitution, and reshape America into an image someone like Vladimir Lenin would be proud of.
The notion of White Privilege has become a battle cry of the liberal left. A generation of high-school and college students are being taught that a great number of “unearned privileges” accrue to white Americans, therefore, the charge of white privilege demands rational inquiry.
If the presence of White Privilege was true, then why are so many whites also in poverty? Why is it that whites commit suicide at twice the rate of blacks (and at a higher rate than any other race in America except American Indians)? According to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, white men, who the Left argues are the most privileged group of all in America, commit seven out of every ten suicides in America — even though only three out of ten Americans are white males.
If White Privilege was true, wouldn’t more whites than blacks consider life worth living.
The truth is, there are conditions that make life better for certain groups. Having two parents in the household is one. If you are raised by a father and mother, you enter adulthood with more privileges than anyone else in American society, irrespective of race, ethnicity, or sex. That’s why the poverty rate among two-parent black families is only 7 percent. It is 22 percent in white single-parent homes.
If White Privilege exists, then how do you explain the success of Asians in American Society? If the whites have all of the privileges, then shouldn’t they, too, as a minority, be stricken by the problem? Asian Americans do better than white Americans in school, on IQ tests, on credit scores, and on other positive measures. In fact, according to recent data from the Federal Reserve, Asians are about to surpass whites as the wealthiest group of Americans.
How about opportunity for college? Regardless of one’s grades and extra-curricular activities, one’s chances of being accepted into a prestigious college are considerably greater if one is a member of a non-white minority group … especially the black minority.
The claim of the presence of White Privilege has nothing to do with the truth, and everything to do with trying to portray blacks as victims. This helps the hard left radicals in a number of ways, from continuing to ensure that blacks continue to view America as racist to the destruction of the idea that moral and cultural values determine the fate of the individual and of society. You are a product of your morals, and choices, and your path is dependent upon those things. It isn’t poverty that causes crime, it is a lack of moral self-control.
The black community may have all the privileges they want if they simply resurrected the family unit, and set aside government dependency, and the thug attitude. And, that is what has been happening. Some people are waking up, and black approval of Trump, according to Rasmussen, is over 40%, and the radicals are rioting and pulling out all the stops not because of racism, but because they have become desperate … it is the final lashing out of desperate scoundrels because, the truth is, Trump has been winning across the board … despite the attacks.
