I should be surprised at nothing advanced by the Liberal Leftist of America and the world but I am. I listen to the rhetoric of the protesters, the Hollywood types, the MSM, Leftist Politicians, some Clergy and others and am stunned at the complete disconnect with reality. They insist they are supporters of Free Speech, Religious Liberty, Tolerance, and Diversity. I heard Robert Reich and others argue that the Berkeley riots were the work of paramilitary right-wingers and could not believe what I was hearing and reading. That is an evidence of a blindness or attempted deception seeking to blind millions to the reality that is alarming and beyond dangerous.
Those in participating were not right-wing paramilitary activist they were the black-clad Antifa anarchist who coordinated with the Bay Area community activists and the UC Berkeley student groups to disrupt and destroy. It was not an activity supporting Free Speech but designed to suppress the right of Free Speech of anyone holding a conservative view. They threw Molotov cocktails, burned buildings and other things, carried sticks and protesting the appearance of Milo Yiannapolous. The Antifa was possibly birthed in Germany in the 1970’s and are an extreme far-left group whose purpose is to disrupt. They are incredibly well networked, well trained using paramilitary tactics and apparently well-funded. Their credo printed on the inside of their masks is, “By putting on our masks we reveal our unity; and by raising our voices in the street together, we speak our anger at the facelessness of power.” They like some other anarchist groups carry thick poles designed to harm, threaten, intimidate, and maim anyone they encounter.
A distinct difference between the extremist on the Far Left and the Far Right is the Left embraces their extremist and for the most part the Right denounces the extremist on the far right. The Tea Partiers that I know abhor the far-left and the far-right anarchist and their anarchism. The Left seems to be convinced that every conservative is joined at the hip to the Nazis or Nazi sympathizers and KKK. Hillary Clinton worked that angle in her campaign and associated every Trump supporter with the racist, neo-Nazi, and White Supremacist. That was and is an unfair characterization because most of us denounce those groups. I blame Hillary and the rhetoric of the Left for the Pu… Hat March in Washington and the vile rhetoric that has ensued since election night and will likely continue into the foreseeable future.
I am frequently told that what those of us on the Right should do is nothing. We should let the Left continue simply ignore them. Although, I agree we should not engage in violence with them we dare not ignore them. If we do, we are facilitating a rise of a monster that we will only be able to defeat with the use of force. That would be incredibly destructive and detrimental for the Republic. I believe that every time they are able to carry out one of their riots they become emboldened and we move one step closer to WAR. We may think they are incoherent, uncoordinated, and will implode but I warn that the forces behind them see each unopposed protest, riot, and act of anarchy as a victory and becomes a serious recruiting tool. It allows them to advance their narrative and convince others that there is no penalty for this kind of illegal activity and, in time, will so solidify their unity they will be a formidable force. What we are seeing in the streets is not spontaneous and new, it is the culmination of decades of liberal efforts behind the scenes.
Each time a University, police force, or politician cede to the demands of those groups they enable them to become stronger and then they reach for larger prizes. When the law is broken, we must arrest and prosecute everyone involved. No police force, no University, no Politician should cave to the demands thinking they are doing right to avoid further violence. NO, those groups are willing to take to the streets and destroy and even kill to get what they want. Again, I am not saying we need to take to the streets to fight them using force against force but we MUST demand that the Laws of our Land are enforced uniformly and consistently without fail. If we treat these groups as petulant children and fail to take them seriously we will help create a monster that will destroy our political system and society. WE CANNOT AFFORD TO ALLOW THAT TO HAPPEN! A statement the Berkeley College Republicans described the situation in a most accurate manner, “It is tragic that the birthplace of the Free Speech Movement is also its final resting place.” FREE SPEECH must be ‘free for all’ or it is not ‘free at all.’ These are more than ‘rent-a-mobs’ they are part of a growing and dangerous development in America that seeks to create chaos and anarchy thinking it will achieve their end but it will be our end as a Republic.
God help us to stand up and apply the pressure upon our elected officials, Law Enforcement and voice our concerns so powerfully that it cannot be ignored. God, bless you richly is my prayer and God bless America!
