It's Anarchy Now

Monday, June 1, 2020

During the Russian Revolution thousands upon thousands were slaughtered. Famine brought about starvation and even cannibalism in the new Soviet Union. Between the World Wars hundreds were murdered in Germany with no reaction by the government. Food shortages and mass unemployment led to daily civil unrest. Communist revolutionaries routinely battled private armies openly in the streets.

America does not have millions starving, thousands massacred by violent private armies or Imperial guards. Nothing to that level of desperation and utter loss of hope exists in our nation no matter how much CNN might try to spin it that way. Looting armfuls of electronics, big screen TVs, burning a historic church in DC and defacing the Lincoln Memorial and World War II Memorial is not a cry of desperation. So stop the “protest” farce, it’s anarchy now.

What happened to Mr. Floyd is despicable. A nation can not allow murderous behavior by law enforcement to continue. But injuring police is not protesting, it’s retaliation. Destruction of businesses hurts innocent people and does not redress grievances. It leads to confrontation not solutions.

As chaos continues the murder of Mr. Floyd is getting lost. More needs to be learned about Officer Chauvin and Mr. Floyd working at the same nightclub. Why was Officer Chauvin still on the streets after 18 complaints and comments by the nightclub owner about his overly aggressive behavior in his security job? Failure to supervise this man is very disturbing. People need to be accountable for that.

Anarchists are now directing the movement and it’s pure terrorism. The more we learn about the identity the clearer their motives appear to be. In NYC, a woman was arrested for throwing a Molotov cocktail into a police van with four officers in it. Two others were caught in possession of incendiary devices and on camera throwing some. They have been identified as Brooklyn attorneys (New York Daily News, May 31). As those arrested are identified, we learn their real motives. Last year a masked Antifa thug was arrested for randomly assaulting people with a bike-lock. He was an ethics professor at a junior college (Rolling Stone, May 15, 2018).

Antifa has links back to the communist gangs that fought openly in the streets of Germany between the wars. Do we want a return to chaos like Europe before the rise of Hitler? Keep trying to justify riots and it will. Business owners will soon be defending their property if weak and incompetent mayors can’t help them.

Yes, Dr. King did say riots occur when voices are unheard. Al Sharpton said the same words. Ivy league attorneys, college professors and upstate middle class young women throwing bombs hardly qualify as those unheard voices. Look at the faces of many of those arrested. Then ask yourself if this is now about George Floyd. So keep trying to defend those burning churches and defacing monuments with anti-capitalist slogans as people without a voice and see where it takes us.

Staffers for Joe Biden paid the bail for some arrested in Minneapolis. We need to know who these people were and are they Antifa or related anarchists. All of these events should tell you a lot about your choice in November for president.
