A Long Hard Road


Like it or not, the United States of America is in the midst of a Civil War with wide-spread acts of violence perpetrated in the name of BLM/Antifa Communist revolution and Dem-Party controlled areas winking at the violence as the acts of peaceful Protestors while simultaneous utilizing COVID fearmongering to control the lives not involved in violence. Justin Smith lays out the situation and stakes under threat that could eradicate any Liberty lingering in America.

A Long Hard Road

Too Many Americans Prefer the Sacrifice of Liberty

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 8/1/2020 1:34 AM

 

They’re selling postcards of the hanging, they’re painting the passports brown

The beauty parlor is filled with sailors, the circus is in town

Here comes the blind commissioner, they’ve got him in a trance

One hand is tied to the tight-rope walker, the other is in his pants

And the riot squad they’re restless, they need somewhere to go

As Lady and I look out tonight, from Desolation Row”  ~ Bob Dylan

 

America and all of Her institutions have been under a constant, withering attack, since before the 2016 elections, and those attacks have grown more fierce and intense to this day, as the Marxists, fascists, nihilists and anarchists of America proceed with their cultural leveling and cancel culture agendas. They seek to force equality of outcomes for all, through mob rule and the redistribution of wealth and property that is not theirs and a campaign of intimidation, fear and widespread violence across the land, with the intent to destroy America’s heritage, everything good and decent about Her, from Her traditions and principles to Her very exceptional existence.

 

The Founders full well understood the dangers of democracy, of majority rule in general, and they had no qualms whatsoever in issuing warnings about those dangers, as noted in the following quotes:

 

“Mankind will in time discover that unbridled majorities are as tyrannical and cruel as unlimited despots.” ~ John Adams, the Second President of the United States, correspondence to John Stockdale, May 12th 1793

 

“An elective despotism was not the government we fought for …” ~ Thomas Jefferson, the Third President of the United States, Notes on Virginia Q.XIII, 1782. ME 2:163

 

James Madison, the Fourth President of the United States, was more specific, in Federalist Paper 10, as he noted:

 

Hence it is that such democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths.”

 

Today’s uneducated, ill-informed, envious frenzied collective masses, within the ranks of Antifa and Black Lives Matter, as well as all others seeking their own happiness through the prism of “what can government do for me”, rather than seeking to be truly free, independent, free-thinking proponents of their own happiness and success, fail to understand that all men and women are not equal in attitudes or individual capabilities. The only true equality for mankind is seen in the equality found under the moral rule of law, designed to protect and defend one’s inalienable rights, and expand those rights under individual liberty, that does no wrong to others.

 

Their so-called “solutions” are nihilistic, in that they have no solutions. They have no concrete demands other than vague calls for “social justice”, specific calls for privilege and an end to “Systemic Racism” (read “racism aimed at Blacks and Hispanics”) that does not exist in America today, despite all their screaming claims to the contrary. Although there isn’t any racist law, rule or practice within government and corporate America today, other than Affirmative Action laws biased against Whites and Asians, they continue to advance the notion that America is a racist nation, so long as even one individual commits a racist act, raising the bar for America on the whole to an unattainable standard.

 

In the meantime, during one interview, America witnesses Hawk Newsome, a 6 foot 6 inches tall Black Lives Matter leader in New York, tell Fox News, that “We don’t want white people in the Bronx, otherwise we’ll burn the place down.” This scenario has become reality in too many cities across America, as Black Lives Matter and Antifa both have brought out lethal weapons and tactics, in their agenda aimed at causing a major confrontation, possibly reminiscent of Kent State, that will finally bring down the Trump administration and place the reins of power in the hands of the Democratic Party and Joe Biden, which will start us on our way to a nation of extremely impoverished people all made “equal” by illegal diktats, from the new regimes communist czars, in a wholly un-American program.

 

On July 25th, more mayhem and chaos and violence was the rule of the day, in Portland, Oregon, and despite the temporary “truce” achieved by the Trump administration and Homeland Security with Mayor Ted Wheeler and Governor Kate Brown, no one should believe or expect this to be the end of violence and the campaign of fear and intimidation in the area. The same goes for places like Louisville, Kentucky that witnessed a member of the radical Not F****ng Around Coalition accidentally shoot another member, and Austin, Texas, where one BLM member was shot and killed after he pointed his AK-47 at someone in a car.

 

And, on this same weekend, America saw Seattle’s Antifa smash windows of businesses, set fires and destroy the Seattle Police’s East Precinct building, with 45 arrested for rioting, assault and other charges, while 21 police officers were injured. Down the coast, Antifa broke into the Federal Bureau of Prisons Detention Center in L.A. , while rioters in Richmond, Virginia were setting fire to a city dump truck.

 

Abide by the law and one is still likely to have one’s property destroyed or their life threatened or even taken by murder most foul, as America recently witnessed when some Marxist coward shot and killed Bernell Trammell, a Trump supporter, outside his store sporting Trump campaign signs, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on July 23rd. People are also being shot in their cars now, simply trying to conduct daily affairs, and so, gun sales are sky-rocketing.

 

Bernell Trammell – Trump Supporter

 

Most Americans buying firearms currently envision themselves defending life and property within a system of laws, but in too many cities, police have been told to stand down and they have been politicized during the Obama years. What happens when decent patriotic Americans realize the “system of laws” — the rule of law — is now non-existent? For the silent majority, slipping into the minority, it would seem as though there isn’t any political option to end the current madness.

 

There really isn’t anything any sane and logical person can give to these anti-American radicals, since with every concession there comes ten more demands. They will not relent or stop until they have completely cowed and defeated conservative America into total submission to the new collective agenda, whatever that may be. No one knows what their vision for “social justice” or an end to “systemic racism” looks like, other than it doesn’t include traditional American values and morality, since their pointless slogans and chants are, by and large, simple-minded idiocies borrowed from the grievance studies programs of America’s universities, those hot-beds of subversive, anti-American propaganda and indoctrination.

 

For all their touted intelligence and brilliance, it cannot have escaped a cogent thinking person’s notice, that most of these Antifa and BLM disruptors and destroyers reject the reality that the system currently favors those in society who produce, and simultaneously, they reject private ownership of property and the reality that some achievements and experiences, for any variety of reasons, are open only to some people and not everybody in the country. And as such, their push for a pure democracy with a Marxist ideological base is founded in their premise that every single person must have the same exact “right” as the next person to enjoy the exact same things, a premise based in a deep hatred for America and toward success and anybody who has attained a level of success, on a social, intellectual and economic level, through their own choices, free will, independent drive and hard work. [Blog Editor: Justin Smith is exactly correct the apparent sentiment of the Dem Party, BLM and Antifa a “push for a pure democracy with a Marxist ideological base”. The thinking is a bit of a deceptive smoke and mirrors oxymoron operation. Historically Communist Pure democracy concepts to validate violent mobocracy (mobs pretending majority when actually a minority) YET without fail a Communist government is NEVER one-man/one-vote. Communist rule is ALWAYS a small oligarchical elite often dominated by a brutal individual telling citizens how to think, live and believeOR ELSE]

 

To achieve such an end, these Marxists necessarily have to move against free thought and individual liberty, as they “rebuild” America to reflect this resentment and hatred. No individual can be allowed to exhibit views superior to the average man, and so, according to Antifa and BLM, all our institutions must be reduced to the lowest common denominator of intelligence, morality and opinion in society. To this end, government must, in the eyes of Antifa and BLM, cripple and oppress any superior being in our society, while stamping out any original thought and utterly destroying free-thinking dangerous men capable of true logic and reason and exposing the fallacies and lies behind the Marxist ideological tyranny they intend for all America.

 

The success of these anti-American radicals hinges on eliminating any center or person of power that is not subservient to their own power. This is the reason we have seen a marked increase in attacks against Christianity and Judaism in the nation and a rolling tide of vicious diatribes against any politician, especially Conservatives, who oppose the false narrative of Black Lives Matter and the Marxist worldview.

 

So intent are they to create a world of men who are all alike and “equal”, they must ostracize all men capable of superior reasoning and those men guilty of thinking unpopular thoughts. Once anyone is accused of such heresy, the subsequent proceedings take on the nature of a lynching, since no one can stray from the Party Line and anyone who does so stands in contempt and has no rights under their notion of what constitutes “the law”.

 

The politics of Antifa and BLM are nothing less than the politics of envy. They can’t stand seeing anyone in America having a better time than they are, or pocketing a few extra dollars than they might have. Their bitterness, prejudices and envy are formed in minds that haven’t developed much farther, emotionally and intellectually, than the average adolescent’s mind.

 

They seek the end of the Republic without offering anything concrete and of real substance to replace it, or “solutions” so extremely inferior to what is currently in place, that they represent nothing worthy of one’s time and consideration. And nothing appeases them, as they continue to loot and burn cities, and the Democratic Party cheers on the lunacy and the radical’s reckless behavior that completely ignores the consequences of their actions.

 

The election itself is another front in this ongoing civil war, this insurrection in the streets, and if Rep. John Lewis’s funeral gave us any indications, there is a smell of desperation to unseat President Trump hanging thick in the air, as Obama tried to present an image of “peaceful protesters” having their rights violated by this administration, which is one of the Biggest Lies of 2020. Most Americans have seen the massive bricks, concrete filled pvc pipes, frozen bottles of water, nail-filled M-80s and Molotov cocktails flying through the air at conservative counter protesters and police. Such a naked subversion of the truth suggests that the former president is using the mobs to Mau Mau the country, to ensure he and his minions don’t land in prison, for the traitors they are, as Attorney General Barr appears to be turning the screws a bit more, evidenced in July 28th’s Congressional hearing.

 

Going into November’s election, thirty-five Senate, 435 House and eighty-six of ninety-nine state legislatures and eleven governor seats are up for grabs, along with many other elected positions. The state legislatures will draft the legislative agendas for the states and the House of Representatives. With the Republicans controlling fifty-nine percent of state legislatures and both the legislative and executive branches in forty-three percent of the states and the Democrats having complete control in thirty-one percent of the states and complete control of thirty-eight percent of the legislatures, it is most certain that the Republicans have the most to lose in November. But, regardless of the results, an already emboldened Marxist insurrection will only grow larger and more violent, especially if President Trump is re-elected.

 

The answer lies in seeking men and women for offices who believe in limited and fiscally responsible government, rolling back many bad “laws” rather than creating thousands more and for all Americans to stop asking government to intercede in their lives. But too many Americans from all spectrum and both sides of the political aisles seem to prefer to sacrifice freedom and liberty in order to gain some material advantage and a false guarantee of one’s happiness from Big Brother. They long for the herd and a false security, as they sacrifice their dignity and pride, everything of real worth, for the most disgraceful peace of an environment comparable to a well-managed prison, that they hold more dear than their own liberty.

 

AG William Barr is offering a highly accurate assessment, in stating that mail-in ballots are invitations to fraud. But the Leftstream mass media is running a campaign to intensify the fear of “the Virus” in a manner designed to ensure that this mail-in scam can succeed. Wait for it, but hope, pray and work to keep it from coming to fruition, since the most likely result would be an election that cannot be resolved even by the Supreme Court. And then, with some 32 million plus out of work, thousands of small businesses forced to close, and many penniless, homeless and hungry, it may be left to the military to step in until matters get sorted, giving way to America’s Pinochet moment and all manner of hell breaking loose in America.

 

It’s quite a troubling juxtaposition in time from the days of our Founding, based on freedom and individual liberty, to today and the harsh reality of the extraordinary advancements the Progressive Democratic Party Communists’ movement has made against freedom and liberty in America. And given the depth and breadth of our nation’s current political divides and the Marxist radicals’ insistence for nothing less than the eradication of America’s Founding, whatever transpires in November, it will not be enough to stop this rapidly moving trajectory to an all-out hot civil war.

 

Any real hope for a return to the principles of limited government and the virtues that grew America and made Her so strong and exceptionally seems to have flown the coop many years ago. They will be reclaimed along a long hard road, and only after many hard fought, bloody battles.

Racist Reparations


If you listen to Dem-Marxists and their media propaganda machines (e.g. NYT 1619 Project), YOU are being lied to and brainwashed to believe lies. With that in mind, I discovered a well thought out post on the idiocy of forcing present day Caucasians pay reparations to present day Black Americans for the sins of historical slavery.

Racist Reparations

 

Civil War Battle Scene

 

July 26, 2020

In America: Life , Culture & Politics

 

Many Americans died to end slavery

 

There has been a lot of talk about white folks needing to pay reparations to black folks in order to make amends for the legacy of slavery in the United States. One definition of “reparations” I found was:

 

“the making of amends for a wrong one has done, by paying money to or otherwise helping those who have been wronged.” — Google “definition of reparations”

 

Where exactly are there any living black Americans today who were actually harmed personally by slavery? I don’t see any. Pretty sure all those folks are long since dead and buried.

 

As to the modern descendants of those black Americans who were truly wronged by slavery, a pretty good argument can be made that no matter what happened in the past, modern African Americans have far more opportunities in America today than they would have about anywhere else. Modern immigrants of color refute by their success that racism or skin color is truly an impediment to success in modern America.

 

As far as slavery goes I don’t think there are any modern Americans who have any real claim on anyone else based on what happened over a century and a half ago. From a political standpoint I think the motivation is obvious. One political party is getting a little nervous about keeping the black vote in line and are looking for some way to buy it for a little longer.

 

The other side of the equation is trying to find any white people who are guilty for the sins of slavery today. Maybe if you go out to some old cemeteries and start digging up the bones of long dead slave owners you can find the culprits, but doubt that would be very profitable for anyone.

 

Also are you going to dig up some of those old slave owners who were black? See Slavery where I talk about how there were free blacks and native Americans who owned black slaves.

 

A lot of Americans never owned slaves and lived in parts of America where slavery had been outlawed. A lot of those folks died in America’s bloodiest war to end slavery in America. A lot more Americans had ancestors who came to America after slavery had ended and their families had no part whatsoever to do with slavery.

 

As far as I can tell those yelling the loudest about paying reparations believe that all white people should have to pay. That idea is fundamentally racist to the core. Basically they are saying white folks are guilty because they are white, regardless of their own personal actions or those of their family for generations past. People who say that are as racist as any KKK member and should be morally condemned by any rational person, regardless of their skin color.

 

How could we possibly implement reparations today except by basing it on race? That is racist.

When creepy Joe Biden echoes former President Obama about fundamentally transforming America, you can look at the COVID despotism coupled with Antifa/BLM rioting, vandalizing, looting and God help us murdering to comprehend how such a transformation will be accomplished. HOW CAN THIS HAPPEN in America? The answer is actually quite simple: Decades of brainwashing by a Marxist oriented (disguised as Progressive) Education System, Mainstream Media, Leftist infected Entertainment and worse – an American Political Party overtaken by Globalist Gramsci-like Eco-Marxism.

 

Which brings me to the purpose of this post. The Marxist pamphleteer media organization known as the New York Times sponsors a brainwashing project actually being picked up as fact by many Public School systems across the USA to continue this transformative brainwashing called the 1619 Project.

 

Nikole Hannah-Jones – NYT 1619 Project Clown

 

The 1619 Project is the current preeminent lie blackfacing America’s heritage with guilt based on distortions of facts on Slavery in America.

 

I am on The Ferocious Conservative’s email list and I am pleased to share how the Slave Trade actually functioned as it made it’s ugly way to the shores of America. The only disappoint I have is author John Gaultier didn’t provide much in the way of source linking or a bibliography. And so prior to reading the excellent Slave info provided by Gaultier, I offer a 1619 Project bibliographic critique:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

AND NOW the meat of some terrific information who will not hear or read from Marxist-oriented outlets.

THE HISTORICAL ORIGINS OF SLAVERY THAT THE SOCIAL JUSTICE MARXISTS AND THE NEW YORK TIMES AND THE 1619 PROJECT DO NOT WANT YOU TO KNOW ABOUT!

 

By John Gaultier

July 19, 2020 11:07 AM

THE FEROCIOUS CONSERVATIVE ACTIVIST BULLETIN

 

FOLLOW THE TRUE HISTORY OF SLAVERY THROUGH THE AGES.  AND YOU NEED TO KNOW THE CONNECTION BETWEEN ISLAM AND SLAVERY IN AMERICA.

 

140 Million Victims Islamic Slave Trade

 

Before you read the history,  I want you to ask a simple question “why” does the left pin the slavery donkey tail on America!

It’s very simple! It’s because America is the richest country by far in the world. It is rich in wealth, Industry, infrastructure and Raw Materials. What a plum for the Marxist and Social Justice Thieves to steal! They are not into hard work. They want a free ride based on a lie. Yes there was slavery but there was slavery around the world in the 1600’s. Matter of fact African Tribes in Africa sold their brother Africans into slavery to their Muslim Pals. The Muslims were the biggest slave traders in the world. Read through my blogs and you will find posts documenting all of this.

So…Contrary to popular belief, the first slaves in the American colonies were not Africans. Also, the majority of Africans taken from their homelands for the purpose of slavery were not destined for the shores of what would eventually evolve into the United States. Slavery was a documented “established institution” dating back to as early as 1760 B.C., where it is referred to in the Code of Hammurabi.

 

Slavery was an accepted part of society in ancient cultures such as Greece, Assyria, and Egypt, and at one time, the Roman Empire’s total population consisted of 25% slaves, with Italy’s slaves comprising 30% to 40% of its total population. By 500 B.C., slaves comprised upwards of a third of the population in some Greek city-states. In Sparta following several slave revolts about the year 600 B.C., the Spartans restructured their city-state into an authoritarian regime, for the leaders decided that only by turning their society into an armed camp could they hope to maintain control over the numerically dominant enslaved population.

From the pre-Christian era up to colonization of the New World, slavery was an accepted part of daily life in countries and cultures across the globe, and whether or not a particular culture was enslaved was generally determined by their weakness in warfare. To the victors go the spoils, which in this case were the indigent peoples of the conquered lands. Slaves consisted of Irish, Turkish, Chinese, Arab, Persian, Greek, and many other cultures, and was not restricted to one particular race, ethnicity, culture, or country.

The Spaniards were the first Europeans to use Africans as slaves in New World colonies such as Cuba and Hispaniola (where the first African slaves arrived in 1501), where the native populations starved themselves to death rather than work for the Spanish. The natives were originally used as forced labor, but the spread of disease and their demise due to self-imposed starvation eventually forced the Spanish colonists to obtain laborers elsewhere, which ultimately began what came to be known as the Atlantic slave trade.

In Europe, the Dutch had overtaken the pre-eminent slave trade by 1650, until they were usurped by the British in 1700. Britain played a prominent role in the Atlantic slave trade, especially after 1600, and slavery was a legal institution in all thirteen of the American colonies and Canada (which had been acquired by Britain in 1763). The Slave Trade Act of 1807 and the Slavery Abolition Act of 1833 by British Parliament effectively ended slavery in Britain.

Slaves from Africa were slaves in Africa long before they were slaves anywhere else in the world. From 1300 to mid-1800, nearly all African countries had a slave population that comprised one-third of their total populations. The status of slavery varied from a feudal vassal system, where the slaves tithed part of their income and crops to a land owner and had a small number of restrictions on their freedoms, to a slavery system that more closely resembled the one instituted in the American colonies of the 1700’s and 1800’s, where slaves were considered property, treated poorly, and had no personal freedoms whatsoever.

With regard to the Atlantic slave trade, Africans themselves participated in promulgating the practice with the selling of prisoners of war to European slave traders. These prisoners were primarily Africans and were being sold as slaves by their own people. As recently as the late 1990’s, evidence has shown that West Africa still actively engages in the practice of enslaving its own people for the purpose of forced manual labor.

In South America, the ancient Mayan, Aztec, and Incan civilizations routinely practiced slavery, and one of the more common reasons for introducing someone into the bonds of slavery was to pay off a debt (private or public, such as taxation), rather than for utilization as manual labor. In Brazil, slavery was an economic mainstay, and Brazil received 37% of all the African slaves shipped out of Africa via the Atlantic slave trade. Portugal began purchasing African slaves in 1550 for work in sugar plantations once they had depleted the indigenous populations.

By the middle of the 18th century, British and French Caribbean interests such as Jamaica and St. Dominique (now the Independent Republic of Haiti) had the largest slave societies of the region, rivaling Brazil as a destination for enslaved Africans. Haiti and Indonesia still actively practice slavery to this day, and despite the fact that slavery has been globally banned by various international organizations, there remains an estimated 25 to 30 million people in some form of slavery, whether it is the Asian sex trade (which traffics in young females) or more traditional slavery used for manual labor and servitude.

The first slaves used by Europeans in what would later become the United States territory were seen in the early 1500’s and were part of various Spaniard explorers’ attempts to colonize parts of North America or to find certain legendary locations like the Seven Cities of Gold and the Fountain of Youth.

In 1619 a group of twenty Africans were brought to the English colony in Jamestown, Virginia by a Dutch soldier and sold as indentured servants. The transition from indentured servitude to racial slavery happened gradually, and it was not until 1661 that a reference to slavery entered Virginia law (the law was directed at Caucasian servants who ran away with African servants). It was not until the Slave Codes of 1705 that African American status as slaves was sealed into American history.

Despite the popularly held belief that British North America (the United States) was the primary destination of African slaves, only about 5% of the slaves brought out of Africa actually ended up there. The vast majority of slaves were actually sent to the Caribbean (British and French holdings), Brazil, and South America. Also, many slaves in British North America were owned by plantation owners who lived in Britain and oversaw their land holdings and affairs from afar, without ever having set foot on American soil.

Contemporary knowledge regarding slavery, even by those who claim to be outraged at the oppression of their people as slaves, is extremely limited. As already stated, the United States only received about 5% of the total slave trade. According to the 1860 Federal Census, only 1.4% of the total White American population owned slaves, with 4.8% of the Southern White American population being slave owners.

While slavery is most often considered a black eye on the history of the United States, the United States actually played a very small part in the Atlantic slave trade from Africa, and an almost nonexistent role in the global slave trade. The first slaves in the United States were actually Caucasians and were brought from Britain when America was colonized. Following colonization, the settlers then attempted to use Native Americans in the slavery role before it evolved into where it stands today – with the public image of slavery being that of an African American being owned by a white American.

 

[A]nother known historical fact that is quietly swept under the rug is that all the slaves the “western” nations had, were originally purchased from the Islamic Caliphate. That is right, the supply side of the equation was an islamically approved and sanctioned slave market fueled by the belief that non-muslims (kaffirs) were less than human.

The Arab Slave Trade peaked in the 18th and 19th centuries, but it began in the 8th century with the Arab invasion of north Africa and extended into the first decades of the 20th century.  There were three main branches.[7]   The trans-Saharan route ran from northern Nigeria or Timbuktu to Tunis or Tripoli, carrying gold, ivory, and slaves seized from sub-Saharan, unconverted (non-Islamic) communities—an estimated 3.5 to 4 million over a 12-century period.

 

Map showing main slave routes from http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/83/African_slave_trade.png

 

Another route ran along the shores of the Red Sea carrying slaves from Muslim kingdoms in southern Sudan and the Christian kingdom in Ethiopia to Red Sea ports.  At the end of the 18th century, Darfur was sending 5,000 to 6,000 slaves a year along this route.  One scholar guessed that between 12 million and 15 million passed through Cairo in the 16th century.[9]

Finally, the Indian Ocean route began on the east coast and ended at ports on the Persian Gulf, transporting slaves to the Arabian peninsula and the Middle East, with some going to India and even Indonesia or China.

How many slaves did the Arab trade account for between the 8th and 20th centuries? Impossible to say, given the absence of records for most of the period.  Estimates by scholars range widely from over 8 million to 25 million.  For comparison, the Atlantic trade, which flourished between the 16th and 19th centuries, is said to have involved 12.5 million slaves.

 

Do you think the left and their Useful idiots will ask the Oil Rich Islamic Kingdoms for reparations?

 

Share the facts. The Truth is a great way to expose the FRAUD.

BLM Invoked 1804 Haiti White Genocide

 

On July 4 in Georgia, armed Black Supremacists marched on the Stone Mountain Monument commemorating three Confederate heroes daring White Supremacists to respond. To date no violence between hate groups has transpired. I was a bit astonished that the administrator described armed Black Supremacists verbally harassing tourists with racist epithets as peaceful. After all the urban Communist inspired violence occurring in America, my guess it may be only a matter of time until hate groups violently clash leaving Liberty loving Americans with difficult decisions regardless of Red, Yellow, Black and White (as the Bible song goes). Justin Smith looks at the issue.

The NFAC and White Supremacists Are Mirror Images – A Deadly Serious Business for All Concerned

Stone Mountain Memorial– Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee & Stonewall Jackson

 

July 4th 2020 was an extremely interesting day at the Stone Mountain Park in Georgia, where a massive monument to the Confederacy is carved into the side of the mountain, as approximately a thousand armed black men and women descended on it, in what they called a “demonstration”, rather than a protest, and this black nationalist group calling itself the “Not F**king Around Coalition” (NFAC) [Blog Editor: Here’s an irony. A BLM hate-Trump website tells succinctly who these armed NFAC “peaceful” terrorists are:  Wow! NFAC Black nationalist armed militia challenges far-right; By staff;  Black Lives Matter Movement; 7/5/20] paraded down the highway in their paramilitary combat garb, with ammo belts slung over their shoulders and scarves across their faces. The members of this militant black nationalist militia were well armed with a variety of semi-automatic rifles, from AR-10s to AR-15s, pistols too, and they all were full of hate and anger for white America, which becomes evident when one listens to the opening statement of their “commander”.

 

NFAC armed “peaceful” protesters – Stone Mountain Georgia

 

“Commander Jay”, NFAC’s leader,  recently told Newsweek: “It was all Black … there were no brown, no white people … everyone was Black. I am not a protester, I am the commanding general of my militia. We were swearing in new members”, as he also made note of a similar event near Phoenix, also on the 4th.

 

This is an armed black militia, essentially espousing violence, that has some former military in its membership and whose leader says “We’re not f****n’ around anymore” and “Stop taking signs to a protest”.

 

According to the New York Times, this park that is home to a now famous carving of the Confederate President Jefferson Davis, General Robert E. Lee and General Stonewall Jackson is also the place of the rebirth of the Ku Klux Klan in 1915.

 

Referencing this carving, Commander Jay added: “Our initial goal was to have a formation of our militia in Stone Mountain to send a message that as long as you’re abolishing all these statues across the country, what about this one?”

 

In one video of the event, “Commander Jay” shouts into a loudspeaker in a challenge to white supremacists, who have used Stone Mountain as a rallying spot of their own. He must also see the group known as the Three Percenters (III%) as a rival and an enemy also, since he included them in his challenge, even though they are largely comprised of Veterans and former and current law enforcement, who are also Oath Keepers and sworn to defend freedom and liberty for all Americans, black, white, red, yellow or brown.

 

Seeming to want to taunt white militia groups across America to engage in an all-out war against NFAC, he shouted: “I don’t see no white militia. We’re here. Where you at? We’re in your house. Let’s go.”

 

These are racist, radical, Black militants who the Leftist media depicts as simply countering “credible threats” from “white supremacist” groups. But nothing could be further from the truth; these folks are black supremacists and represent something just as vile as any white supremacist and racist might.

All their talk about self-defense is a lie. Just look at the hour long video that came out of their demonstration at Stone Mountain. They speak of white people in general with blanket condemnation.

The “leader” of this group — “Commander Jay” — is basically preaching violent confrontation. He sends a message that his people are tired of working with white people and that “whatever you (white people) do to us, we will do to you” offering a pretense towards violence, since he starts with the false narrative and premise that his “people” are somehow under attack in America today. One must wonder what will be the excuse they offer once they start killing white people just because they’re white and out in public offering up an easy target?

They have an absolute right to be armed and to attend protests armed, just as we have witnessed white militias attend protests in Virginia and elsewhere, SO LONG AS THEY ARE PEACEFUL and carrying their arms as tools for their defense. Once they openly advocate the targeting of another group of Americans, white people for now, they have shown an intent that is far from peaceful.

Still, up to the point they act on those intentions, they have the right to go about armed, just as every other citizen in the U.S., regardless of whether one is brown, yellow, red or white. But once they step over the boundary of the law and violate someone else’s rights by making a criminal violent attack upon someone outside the parameters of self-defense, harming or killing them — namely any white people that may inadvertently become their victim — they become a group of domestic terrorists, no better than Antifa or the KKK or the Muslim Brotherhood and they should be treated as such.

I don’t know if anyone other than myself  happened to notice the flag of the Nubians of the Land of Gods that appears near the early beginning of this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NzRjsVaqREI (7 min. 25 sec.). It is the flag of the same group that founded the Black Hebrew Israelite group, a violent black nationalist group, whose members entered a store in Jersey City and killed six people last year.

 

[Blog Editor: I am about to post the entire 59 minute 56 second video. Justin wants you to see the racist flag of the Black Hebrew Israelites at the 7:25 mark. This so-called leader laces his speech with profanity and threats and that is called “peaceful”. What it is – is incitement. Eventually some White Supremacist racists will take up the challenge of this Black Supremacist and the blood bath will be on. Thank you race-baiting Dem Party:

This NFAC group is largely comprised of New Black Panthers, ***Black Hebrew Israelites and other violent and militant black groups, led by a “Commander Jay” (haven’t been able to find his proper legal name as of yet). And although their numbers are relatively small, for now, and I do note that their rhetoric is idiocy, it is the same sort of rhetoric that also led to an advocate for Black Lives Matter, Micah Johnson, a black Veteran, to shoot six Dallas cops for “payback” in 2016.

 

***[Black Hebrew Israelites info:

 

 

 

A few thousands of these type of low-brow mentality can eventually be used to do an incredible amount of damage, when and if someone in their leadership calls on them to act. Just look at all the mayhem and havoc the early Black Panthers and the Weather Underground created in the 1960s and 70s.

I don’t fear these folks, and I do respect their rights to actual self-defense and to arm themselves for that purpose; however, I do fear what they might decide to do, if some “leader” decides to push the right button, in an unhinged moment of anger over some real or imagined wrong, an isolated incident that has nothing to do with white society at large, or more particularly, one that is blamed on whites whether they are at blame or not.

Like any lunatic fringe, the FBI, ATF and local law enforcement need to keep a close eye on the NFAC’s activities, just as they did with the Aryan Brotherhood [Aryan ideological groups in USA] and the KKK.

 

[Blog Editor: KKK histories

 

 

 

 

This group needs to be kept under a tight federal surveillance and investigation. They hold the same views that the militant leftist New Black Panthers hold, the likes of Malik Shabazz [Blog Editor: It is my sense that it was King Samir Shabazz (aka Maurice Heath) who made the quote Justin found; nonetheless the two Shabazz individuals are cut from the same Black Supremacist cloth], who is on record saying, “We’re gonna have to kill a lot of white babies in their cribs, if we are gonna be free”.

 

[Blog Editor: Two videos of Black Supremacist King Samir Shabazz filled with hate toward White people. The 2nd video mentions Malik Shabazz as a co-Black Supremacist:

This isn’t going to get better, folks, not as long as a hard, bitter, deep seated anger and reverse racism keeps emerging and flowing strongly among the black culture in America, as witnessed throughout Black Lives Matter, that has set entire cities on fire but is scorned by this leader as too soft. The scorn is implied through his own words, “This ain’t Black Lives Matter … we ain’t f….n’ around”. He also reached out to countries around the world that have had murderous black uprisings and large populations of Black Marxists, such as Jamaica, the Dominican Republic, Nigeria, Lagos, Ghana, Mozambique, Columbia and Argentina, and Haiti too, where the black slave population and some free born people of mixed colored heritage went door to door and slaughtered 5,000 whites in 1804.

One of the leaders of this 1804 white genocide, Jean-Jacques Dessalines, callously remarked, that the elimination of the white Haitians an act of political necessity, as they were regarded as a threat to the peace for the black and minority population. It was also regarded as a necessary act of vengeance.

This is the current mindset of these black supremacist nationalists whose leader even demanded that the entire state of Texas must be given to them, so they can create an ethnocentric all black state and “live free in a black nation”.

 

However, one black man in particular, and a Trump supporter, Patrick Hampton, sees precisely what is really transpiring, and recently offered the following: “I’m pleading with ‘white’ militia groups to stand down and ignore them. They are fatherless children with a very poor education, manipulated by media and millionaires. They are having a temper tantrum. They don’t represent all black people. Some blacks can do the math. They (the black militant NFAC) have no clue they are severely outnumbered. I ask that you give them space to have their tantrums. This should be over by November 4th.”

 

Hampton concludes with a plea to black people: “I’m also pleading with ‘blacks’. Patriots are only going to take so much. You can only provoke and poke the bear so long. When (and) if they decide to respond it will not end well for you people (NFAC). They are actually showing more respect for black life by being patient and showing restraint as you terrorize America. You can peacefully protest but targeting people due to their color is exactly what the KKK did to blacks. You all have become the very thing you say you hate.”

 

But these radicals didn’t just “become”. They were birthed at the philosophical knees of W.E.B. DuBois, Elijah Muhammad, Louis Farrakhan, and Malcolm X, and grew up suckling at the teat of racist black nationalists, fed a steady diet of hate for the white man.

 

The NFAC is essentially not any different than its white counterparts in groups, such as the KKK, the Aryan Brotherhood and others. They are mirror images and two sides of the same racist coin.

Stay vigilant folks.

 

This NFAC group better understand that when they start coming for whites, we won’t be foolin’ around either, and a great number of law-abiding constitutional minded conservatives of all colors, blacks too, and all walks of life, may actually move to stop NFAC themselves. The Oath Keepers will definitely be prepared for any such eventuality, should the regular authorities fail to respond in a timely manner. It will be real and deadly serious business for all concerned, and I don’t think they’re going to like the results when their blood starts flowin’ and it’s their bodies being stacked up in the city morgues.

Memories of My America


My wife and I are grandparent raising three over our grandchildren. The children of my wife’s youngest. We were a Brady Bunch family. Our 1990 marriage united 3 kids from her previous marriage and 2 kids from my previous marriage.

 

The other day I overheard a conversation between our 18 year old grandson (still living at home) and my wife. To be honest I can’t remember the context of their conversation because I really wasn’t paying close attention. As a part of that conversation I heard my wife say something along the lines that the 18 year old would appreciate possessions he would have earned more than a hand out. This is the point my ears began to pay attention awaiting his response.

 

He responded (to my best recollection), “Grandma, I don’t believe that is true because I appreciate what is given to me more than what I pay for.”

 

I shook my head in silent sadness. His response means I failed him as he is about to embark on adulthood.

 

Justin Smith submission on his Baby-Boomer experience evoked the sad recent memory with my grandson and also took me back to my own Baby-Boomer youth where most Americans of that era also learned a good American work ethic. I won’t go into mine. Definitely if you are a Baby-Boomer, you appreciate Justin’s memory. If you are a post-Baby-Boomer generation you should read and comprehend the value of a good work ethic.

Memories of My America

 

Farmer, his John Deere & his Dog

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 7/3/2020 2:40 PM

 

I spent so many great days, from my early childhood on, roaming farmlands with my loyal dog, Otto, playing with the farm animals and learning to appreciate all this wonderful world had to offer.

 

And it wasn’t all play, either.

 

My father was posted for a couple of years at Ft Leonard Wood in Missouri, and he found us a nice little house way out in what many would call the “boonies” far from the fort, in the town of Dixon. But it was heaven for a young boy with his head filled with thoughts of adventure, who was already well-versed in Mark Twain’s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer.

 

Outside of my own chores at home, in the summers, as young boys were want to do, I sought to make a dollar or two in order to gain my own spending money, for family outings and such. I mowed yards and just the usual grunt work that some of the older neighbors couldn’t do any longer.

 

Early the first summer, I met an elderly couple that lived on the far edge of town. I was about twelve at the time, and the old couple, who I simply knew as Mr. and Mrs. Whittaker, looked ancient to me. I was soon to discover that they were 96 and 97 at the time. I enjoyed stopping by in the hot Missouri afternoons whenever I’d see them out, Mrs. Whittaker wearing her wide-brimmed straw hat to shade from what were some days unbearably hot days indeed — it was actually unseasonably hot that year. And yet, each day they’d be out in their “garden” working.

 

It wasn’t long before I became a constant at their small spread, doing whatever they needed, just because I knew they needed the help, never asking for pay.

 

That last summer, I was about three months into my 13th year on this earth and Mr. Whittaker said he had need of me. He guided me to an old plow and asked me if I knew how to use one. I told him I had often weeded my GranMa Ila’s garden with a hoe, but had never used a plow, although I was familiar with how the process went. He continued, allowing that it was simple enough, demonstrating for a few minutes.

 

Push Plow

 

It wasn’t a horse-drawn plow. It was a plow with a wheel on the front and designed to be used by people too poor to afford a horse, back when people still used horses to run their furrows. He just wanted me to run the furrows between his corn rows to take out the weeds and carry buckets of water to irrigate the corn … three acres of corn. For a dollar an hour, which sounded like a lot of money to a 13 year old in 1970, until my hands hit the handles and I struggled to churn the sunbaked hardened Missouri soil.

 

Corn Field

 

I instantly wondered if I hadn’t bit off more than I could chew, but being my father’s son, the son of a man who despised quitters almost as much as cowards, I ducked my head and plowed on, turning the soil and then going back and watering the corn when the rains were sparse, using a short water hose for the closest rows and buckets for the rest …. back and forth … and back and forth. Three acres may not sound like much, but it seemed like a hundred to me, by the time it came to harvest the corn.

 

I had to return to school before harvest time, but some of their kin came by to shuck and bundle the corn, that September.

 

It was hard work seeing how it was all done by hand, but these were people used to doing EVERYTHING by hand, and that experience taught me a great lesson. I was never so proud as to have been given the responsibility of caring for their corn, to be trusted to do what was asked of me. My own parents had me well on my way towards a great work ethic before that summer, but that experience made me appreciate a job well done and helping others.

 

I celebrated their 97th and 98th birthdays with them, and then we were off to another post, and back home to Tennessee.

 

A few years later, at eighteen, I spent the summer harvesting winter wheat, in Springfield, Colorado, while visiting my little GranMa Mamie, learning to drive a fancy, 12-gear Case tractor. Another cherished memory.

 

12-gear Case tractor

 

I only tell You of this as I am getting some age on me now, and I tend to find myself reminiscing of days gone by, as I see so many aimless, lazy, unproductive children scattered all about our society, in virtually any place one cares to mention. So many never so much as set foot from their house, unless it’s for some mindless pursuit, and the remainder of their time is spent glued to some online game.

 

I look at them and I can’t picture a one of them willing to help their fellow neighbor, much less working day in day out for hours upon hours to bring in a crop of any sort. I look at them on the whole and it puts fear in me for this nation, especially as we see what so many have become in their young adult years, as those who succumbed to the indoctrination and propaganda in the streets have become the nation’s destroyers.

 

Never was there any more truth set forth for all men to pay heed and take notice of than those of Proverbs 16: 27-29:

 

Idle hands are the devil’s workshop; idle lips are his mouthpiece.[a]

An evil man sows strife; gossip separates the best of friends.

Wickedness loves company—and leads others into sin.”

 

American families aren’t doing their children any real favors by coddling them and allowing them to lay about for too many days on end, without something constructive put in front of them to pursue. They should be given the comforts of a good home and all that comes with it, but so too must they be taught from an early age the value of good honest work, a good day’s labor for a good day’s pay and the sense of pride that one achieves from seeing a job well done, a job they completed on their own.

 

We’ve advanced beyond our wildest imagination in areas of technology, but not so much in the social graces and just being good people. If anything, our society has been driven backwards with the constant attacks on God and Family that those callous anti-American interlopers and the hate-America first crowd have mounted on this country I love so well, time and again, from the early 1900s to the present. We can do better, but not with another ideology and its supporters doing everything within their power to end traditional America, all in the name of getting something for nothing, as though they are owed a living from the sweat of someone else’s brow, just by their mere existence.

 

I miss the America I grew up knowing and loving.

Mt. Rushmore Trump Speech. Freedom Fireworks & MSM Lies


John R. Houk, Blog Editor

Posted July 4, 2020

 

Since I am fairly convinced the Mainstream Media either failed to show the Trump speech at Mt. Rushmore or selectively vilified the speech with twisted lies, I am showing the entire Independence celebration speech given on July 3 at the foot of Mt. Rushmore in South Dakota.

 

THEN I am showing the video (I recommend FULL SCREEN) of the Mt Rushmore fireworks unsurprisingly vilified by the MSM. If you live in a Dem Party totalitarian location where COVID-propaganda cancelled fireworks, you can watch the Mt. Rushmore Freedom Fireworks.

 

THEN I’m cross posting a MeWe group that borrows from Breitbart exposing MSM lies

U.S. President Donald Trump criticized protesters who have been trying to tear down various statues of Confederate leaders and other historical figures during a speech at Mount Rushmore on Friday evening.

 

The president warned that demonstrations over racial inequality in American society threatened the foundations of the U.S. political system, calling it a “left-wing cultural revolution” designed to “overthrow the American revolution,” and claimed that children were being taught in school to hate the country.

 

An estimated 7,500 people were in attendance, many packed into an amphitheatre despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, with attendees being offered masks but many not wearing them.

 

Trump also announced he would sign an executive order to establish a “national garden of American heroes” filled with statues of notable historically significant figures. The garden is expected to include Wilbur and Orville Wright, Jackie Robinson, – the first African-American to play Major League Baseball, Harriet Tubman – an abolitionist known for rescuing approximately 70 enslaved people using a network of anti-slavery activists known as the “Underground Railroad”, and former Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia.

Lies deceit and half-truths they spew against our country. They are the main characters attacking our country backed by the DEMOCRATS in their lust for control.

God Bless this great country and this President who would make a stand on behalf of the people.

 

CNN Laments ‘Dark History of Mount Rushmore’s Sculpture’ Ahead of Independence Day Celebration

 

HANNAH BLEAU 3 Jul 2020

[Breitbart]

CNN joined the establishment media effort to “cancel” Mount Rushmore, lamenting the “dark history” of the sculpture and criticizing President Trump — who is set to deliver a speech at the historic landmark Friday night —  for defending “racist monuments.”

“The dark history of Mount Rushmore’s sculpture itself takes center stage with Trump’s visit,” CNN’s Betsy Klein wrote in a preview of the event not labeled as an opinion piece.

 

“The President, who has stoked racial animus since he first entered the political arena, has moved to defend racist monuments in the face of nationwide protests over the treatment of Black Americans,” Klein continued, noting that Friday’s Independence Day celebration was planned prior to the widespread civil unrest.

CNN’s grievances appear to be in lockstep with the New York Times, which published an article this week highlighting controversies with the historic landmark — from its location on “Indigenous land,” to the sculptor’s purported ties to white supremacy, to the presidents depicted on the American icon itself.

Like the Times, CNN quoted Nick Tilsen, a member of the Oglala Lakota tribe and leader of the Indigenous activist group NDN Collective, who ultimately wants the monument closed and the land given to Indigenous people:

 

Indigenous people and my ancestors fought and died, and gave their lives to protect the sacred land, and to blow up a mountain and put the faces of four White men who were colonizers who committed genocide against Indigenous people — the fact that we don’t, as Americans, think of that as an absolute outrage is ridiculous.

 

Klein noted that two of the presidents on the landmark were slave owners and effectively dismissed Abraham Lincoln, despite his historic role in signing the Emancipation Proclamation:

 

Two of the four presidents carved into the mountain in South Dakota, Washington and Jefferson, were slave owners. And though Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, Tilsen notes that his legacy, for Native Americans, is a dark one. He approved the executions of 38 Dakota natives in Mankato, Minnesota (though he commuted the sentences of hundreds of others in the same incident).

Lincoln, Tilsen said, “was a mass murderer, a colonizer — ordered the biggest mass hanging in the history of the nation. So he was not one of our heroes. He’s not somebody — he was an enemy of our people, of Indigenous people, and it’s important that we have a reckoning with the true history of this nation.”

 

Klein also mentioned the sculptor, Gutzon Borglum, who had been tasked with Stone Mountain’s Confederate Memorial Carving — the “largest high relief sculpture in the world” depicting Confederate President Jefferson Davis and Generals Robert E. Lee, and Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson.

“Before Mount Rushmore was even considered, Borglum was working on Stone Mountain, Georgia, a Confederate memorial,” said Tom Griffith, Mount Rushmore Society board member.

“I think more than the ideology, but more practically, he was affiliated with the Klan to raise money for this Confederate memorial,” he told CNN.

CNN went one step further than the Times, also mentioning the “environmental risk” of holding an Independence Day celebration at the landmark:

 

Pine beetle infestations in nearby forests were the cause of concern when the fireworks were discontinued. These infestations can kill trees, which increases their flammability risk and, in turn, poses a potential wildfire hazard. Fireworks increased the risk that a fire would ignite.

 

The efforts to effectively cancel Mount Rushmore come as activists demand the removal of historic monuments and statues in cities nationwide in the name of racial and social justice. Notably, several of the monuments activists have targeted are unrelated to the Confederacy. Vandals in Charlotte, North Carolina, targeted a World War II memorial while demonstrators in Madison, Wisconsin, toppled a statue of Col. Hans Christian Heg — an immigrant who died fighting against slavery.

South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg (R) has defended Mount Rushmore, calling it a symbol of “American exceptionalism” — not of “white supremacy.”

“Each of the presidents were picked for a specific reason,” Ravnsborg told Fox & Friends on Friday. “President Washington, for obviously the birth of our nation, President Jefferson for the growth of our nation, President Lincoln for the development of our nation, and Teddy Roosevelt for the preservation of our nation.”

“This is a symbol of American exceptionalism, and I believe that there’s no way of white supremacy,” he continued.

“That obviously has been a dispute over the years since the time about 1876,” Ravnsborg said of claims of America stealing native land. “But that case has actually been litigated to the United States Supreme Court.”

“We are sympathetic to their feelings on the issue, but I do believe that it was not meant to desecrate the land but to honor America and honor our state of South Dakota,” he added.

Despite the mounting complaints, the Independence Day event is slated to kick-off Friday night. Roughly 7,500 are expected to attend the festivities, which will feature fireworks, a flyover, and remarks from the president.

The chaos in America supported by the Dem Party, the Leftist Mainstream Media and various overt and badly disguised American Communists is a precursor to the next American Civil War. Already Dems and the MSM are vilifying Americans arming themselves to protect their lives and personal property. Fight for Liberty OR lose it! Mark McCloskey & Patricia McCloskey attempted self-defense and were heartlessly vilified. WAKE-UP AMERICA!

A War for the American Way of Life

America Needs Us To Be Courageous – America’s Radicals: For Hate’s Sake

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 6/28/2020 1:39 AM

 

We must be ready to employ trickery, deceit, law-breaking, withholding and concealing truth … We can and must write in a language which sows among the masses hate, revulsion, and scorn toward those who disagree with us.”  ~ Vladimir Lenin

 

American society, its government and its institutions are currently facing an existential threat, intimidation and extortion from the Marxists*** and the Maoists††† of the masked, militant, anti-American, traitorous communists of Antifa and Black Lives MatterΩΩΩ, and the anarchists and fascists within their ranks, as we watch them destroy our cities and maim and kill whoever they choose on any given day, for any perceived slight or wrong, or for simply being white, a cop, or another black man trying to do the right thing. They intend the destruction of our beliefs and principles, our culture, our American heritage and our civilization, and, they seek our supplication and subjugation, as they calculate that they can eventually seize and wield power,  by creating a void of power through chaos, that will take America into a dark abyss and a bloody and deadly abattoir.

 

***[Blog Editor: Marxist Transformation in action in America:

 

 

 

 

††† Maoist Communism in America:

 

 

 

 

 

 

ΩΩΩ Black Lives Matter (BLM) Communism:

 

 

 

 

 

There isn’t any other way to assess this insurrection that is wreaking mayhem throughout America, coast to coast, and even in the nation’s capital. This is the acceleration and an escalation of a mounting war for ultimate control of all America, between anti-American Marxists and Maoists and American patriots. These fascists are cut from the same cloth as the Weather Underground [Blog Editor: HERE] domestic terrorist group of 1960s and 1970s America, that carried out over 2,000 bombings and other attacks on government institutions and businesses and memorialized their anti-American agenda in a document entitled ‘Prairie Fire’.

 

No American who truly loves this country should make the mistake of turning a blind eye to Antifa and Black Lives Matter and their rhetoric and actions that are designed to turn the current spate of “protests” into an all-out bloodbath.

 

On June 5th 2020, Terry Turchie, a former Deputy Assistant Director of the Counterterrorism Division of the FBI, spoke to Laura Ingraham, from Fox News, and noted that these days were reminiscent of fifty years ago, stating: “… over fifty years ago, ‘racism, systemic racism, police brutality, systemic police brutality’: These were the things they were saying then. They knew that these were nothing more than the kerosene you throw on the fire, but they knew they work. … Police racism then and police racism now is a phony issue. It is the issue that communist societies use to literally tear apart Americans and to be divisive.”

 

So much media focus has been placed on Black Lives Matter (BLM) alone, that America has missed the fact that they are a subsidiary of two pro-China communist parties, Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO) and Liberation Road [Blog Editor: You can read Trevor Loudon writing about Liberation Road and other infiltrating Communists HERE.], that were largely responsible for funding and organizing BLM and using three of their agents, Opal Tometi, Alicia Garza and Patrisse Cullors, to run it, as the supposed founders of BLM. As noted by Trevor Loudon, on June 10th, all three are hardcore communist, ‘far-left”, activists, who have deep ties with FRSO and Liberation Road.

 

In a 2015 taped interview, that has recently resurfaced, Patrisse Cullors, who was mentored for a decade by Eric Mann, another radical of the Weather Underground and an associate of Bill Ayers, the radical SDS domestic terrorist who bombed federal government buildings in D.C.. In it, Cullors plainly tells Jared Bell of the Real News Network, that “We are trained Marxists“, speaking of herself and her co-founders.

 

FRSO and Liberation Road were the real drivers behind events during the riots and looting in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014, and from August 10th 2014 to the present they have been at the forefront of the unrest from Dallas to Chicago, Los Angeles to Minneapolis, and on to St Louis, Washington, D.C. and Seattle.

 

Liberation Road has made many deep inroads into the Democratic Party in several states, so they are very tight-lipped about any of their foreign communist connections. However, it is well known that Liberation Road has strong ties with Solidarity (which has an active chapter in my hometown of Murfreesboro, TN), Democratic Socialists of America, Communist Party USA, Socialist Party USA and the League of Revolutionaries for a New America. Liberation Road has also at times cooperated with the Workers World Party.

 

And in the meantime, Antifa, whose real leadership remains murky at best, embraces a large section of American society that subscribes to communism, anarchy and fascism too, and at every BLM backed event, they call out anonymously online for “members” to join BLM’s efforts; one of the better known leaders of Antifa, Evan Duke, was a constant at the Occupy Wall Street protests.

 

In January 2016, James Simpson offered some great detail to illustrate, that their common bond can be found going all the way back to Derrick Bell, the first black teacher at Harvard, and his Critical Race Theory, and a Students for a Democratic Society pamphlet written in 1967 — ‘White Blindspot’ — by Noel Ignatiev and Ted Allen, all three communist radicals.

In explaining Vladimir Lenin’s strategy to use race to gain power, Bell noted: “Critical race theory contends that America is permanently racist to its core, and that consequently the nation’s legal structures are, by definition, racist and invalid … members of ‘oppressed’ racial groups are entitled — in fact obligated — to determine for themselves which laws and traditions have merit and are worth observing …”.

 

In 1992, Ted Allen took matters a step further, writing: “Treason to whiteness is loyalty to humanity. … The way to abolish the white race is to challenge, disrupt and eventually overturn the institutions and behavior patterns that reproduce the privileges of whiteness, including the schools, job and housing markets, and the criminal justice system. The abolitionists do not limit themselves to socially acceptable means of protest, but reject in advance no means of attaining their goal.”

 

However, upon being pressed on the issues, most of the academia radicals will deflect, qualify and justify this trash by claiming that “white” isn’t necessarily targeting white society on the whole, or white individuals. Supposedly, “white” has taken on new meaning, in the parlance of the new communist and anarchist radicals, and it is directed at anyone across the globe, of any color, race, creed or sex, who embraces the principles of limited government, free markets, capitalism and America’s traditional Judeo-Christian culture. These are the principles they see as irredeemably evil, which speaks volumes on their own lack of moral character, and anyone who supports traditional American values, in their eyes, is guilty of “white crimes”.

 

Addressing the nationwide violence, on June 9th, Tucker Carlson, Fox News host, stated: “This may be a lot of things, this moment we’re living through, but it is definitely not about Black lives. And remember that when they come for you — and at this rate, they will.”

 

The mobs of black-clad, masked Antifa fascists and militant BLM thugs and criminals have utilized communist terrorist tactics, violence and accusations of racism, to intimidate, defame and silence those viewed as enemies. They have targeted virtually all white people, all police, all black people and anybody else who dare to challenge their radical anti-American nihilistic communist movement.

 

If not for the facilitation of their treason, by complicit elected officials in the Democratic Party, such as Jenny Durkan, the Mayor of Seattle, who order police to abandon six city blocks to the rioters, their movement would not have made so deep an impact. But, we see this manifest in a network across America, where many elected positions are now filled with radical socialists and communists, such as Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, who have been aided by FRSO and the Democratic Socialists of America.

 

In an online recruitment effort, on June 12th 2020, the Freedom Road Socialists stated, in part: “Capitalism is a failed system that thrives on exploitation, inequality and oppression. … The unfolding economic crisis we are experiencing is the worst since the 1930s. Monopoly capitalism is a dying system and we need to help finish it off. And that is exactly what Freedom Road Socialist Organization is working for.”

 

The only reason capitalism is currently so troubled is precisely due to the injection of socialist mechanisms and economic “principles” into the free market. America hasn’t had a truly free market capitalist system in over a hundred years. And basically, these “protests” and violent riots over the deaths of two black men at the hands of policemen, that have resulted in the murders of police officers and over a thousand Americans injured, over 800 police officers injured and many other Americans killed, has been the excuse to follow their agenda and call for a revolution against capitalism.

 

America’s communists are motivated primarily by intense, maniacal hatred, just as all past communists have been, but it is especially white-hot for the “reformers”, more so than it is for those deemed to be outright “fascists”. This is why our weak-kneed police chiefs, mayors, governors and military leaders are so dangerous, by cow-towing to the true fascists of Antifa and BLM. Their willingness to grovel and kneel to these barbarians only intensifies the radicals’ contempt and white-hot anger, and it emboldens the radicals and seemingly blinds them to the inevitable consequences of their actions and the destruction and chaos that too often follows.

 

It almost seems as if the radical communist Antifa and BLM are screaming at America: “To the last I grapple with thee; From Hell’s Heart I stab at Thee; For Hate’s Sake I spit my last breath at Thee.” [Blog Editor: My fellow SciFi fans might agree the best rendition of Melville’s Moby Dick was the wicked last breath in the Wrath of Kahn. 😊]

 

The chaos in 1936 Spain started in similar fashion, as a violent, aggressive Communist, anarchist and left-leaning liberal coalition demanded social and economic change. Similarly, just as Antifa and BLM are destroying our historical monuments, with some calling for their Comrades to “burn the whole system down”, along with destroying statues and depictions of “white Jesus”, the Spanish radicalized urban working class and the landless farm laborers attacked the military, led by General Francisco Franco, the Spanish middle class, conservative peasants and the Catholic Church, eventually sinking to the deepest, darkest depths of evil to murder lay Catholics, priests and nuns.

 

At the end of the day, Franco’s Nationalists emerged victorious in 1939, forcing the communists to flee or face retribution. Franco demanded individual trials and punishment for every single person who had taken part in the atrocities against the Church and conservatives, rapidly sending thousands to the firing wall to be shot and placing hundreds of thousands in prisons. Mercy was not the order of the day.

 

May America never see the day arrive that our own disloyal, traitorous communist and anarchist radicals force us into civil war, but should it come to pass, we would do well to remember Franco’s example, by holding every single ringleader accountable. Remember the names of those who lead the mobs, since that information will prove vital for another day. Every low-life trimmer and traitorous politician, military man, police chief, and communist academic who participates on the side of Marx and against the Founding  of America must face a day of reckoning and the punishment it demands

 

The righteous Americans must awaken and understand that we are in a war for the American way of life and civilization. We must call out this rabid foaming at the mouth national mob and rabble for the revolutionary movement and the Marxist enterprise that it is, as we affirm and confirm our obligation to this America we love so well, to which we owe so much in return. She now needs our courage and direct action, as we prepare to fight for the soul of America, for America Herself.

 

Would that we pass the ammo, fix bayonets and charge into the madding masses of radical Marxists and Maoists at the first casual, light toss of their Molotov cocktails, hastening their demise and sending them on their way to Hell, in defense of all we hold most dear.

Consider History, Racism and Redemption


Justin Smith highlights the deception the Left has to actual history. The American Left imposes the bad news over the good news of history in an effort to transform the minds and hearts of Americans through violence, intimidation, twisted facts and outright lies.

Consider History, Racism and Redemption

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent June 23, 2020, 02:01:18 PM CDT

 

I wonder when they will start tearing down statues of Democrat Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia who was a leader in the Ku Klux Klan, and will they destroy or rename buildings and roads bearing his name?!???

 

Robert Byrd (younger days)

 

In a letter to Senator Theodore Bilbo (D-MS) in 1944, Senator Byrd declared:

 

“I shall never fight in the armed forces with a negro by my side … Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.”

 

On one critical issue, Byrd broke ranks with his Democratic colleagues. In 1964, when the Civil Rights Act was being considered for passage on the Senate floor, Byrd filibustered for 15 hours, declaring at one point, “Men are not created equal today, and they were not created equal in 1776, when the Declaration of Independence was written…Men and races of men differ in appearance, ways, physical power, mental capacity, creativity, and vision.” Byrd would later apologize profusely for these opinions and his participation in the KKK.

 

According to Fox News, there are no less than 20 buildings, from universities to courthouses, and three highways wearing Byrd’s name, in honor of his “accomplishments”. Multiple buildings are named for him on the campus of Marshall University alone, which is, in fact, now calling for them to be renamed.

 

Upon Byrd’s death, he had allies even in the Civil Rights movement, with the NAACP at the time praising his legacy and his transformation from a former KKK member to a “stalwart supporter” of civil rights. Byrd’s evolution, however genuine or simply for political points and show, was even honored by then President Obama, after he died.

 

Once one starts erasing history, no one is safe from the destruction.

 

You may not like what a person stood for but rather than seeing any particular statue as an idol or representative of the bad the person did, try to understand why the statue was erected in the beginning. And if there’s nothing socially redeeming about the person and his actions over a lifetime, understand him and those actions through the prism of history, as a teaching tool to build a better society and prevent a repeat of those same horrible mistakes and deeds.

 

Often times, men associated with the Civil War, such as General Nathan Bedford Forest, did a good number of fine things before and after the war. Forest actually worked towards racial reconciliation and healing in America, despite false claims that he founded the KKK.

 

[Blog Editor: One should remember history is disseminated through the eyes of the victors. Nathan Bedford Forrest benefits as a historical enigma. Since the Confederate seceding States were not obliterated but defeated with the concept of restoration to the Union, depending on historical sources Forrest was a villain or hero. In today’s Leftist revisionist history obsesses with cancelling the past, Forrest is in the villain lane. With that in mind every source I consulted places Forrest in the beginnings of the KKK yet when questioned under oath in Congress in 1871 Forrest denied KKK association yet writings and interviews at the least KKK sympathies. I am listing several biography sources that connect Forrest to the KKK in varying degrees and one source indicating Forrest a proponent of Black civil rights later in life. None of the finger-pointing KKK biography sketches talk about the Forrest efforts on behalf of Memphis Black Americans after the Civil War.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

During a recent battle over his statue in Tennessee, Tennessee Rep. Micah Van Huss was defiant in a statement written during the brouhaha: “Leftists are free to choose not to look at these glorious monuments,” he wrote. “You want to blind yourself to history? Go ahead and live in your politically correct fantasy world. I live in the real world and will represent my constituents from that viewpoint. I won’t be bullied into pandering to your fragile feelings. I will stand by my heritage and the history of the greatest nation the world has ever seen.”

 

Further, a July 5th 1875 speech that was delivered to the Independent Order of Pole Bearers, a group of black Southerners in Memphis, Tennessee, got Forrest in trouble with Southern racists at the time, mostly because he dared to kiss a young black woman on the cheek when he accepted a bouquet of flowers from her.

 

Nathan Bedford Forrest bust-statue

 

Some quotes from the speech:

 

  • “This day is a day that is proud to me, having occupied the position that I did for the past twelve years, and been misunderstood by your race. This is the first opportunity I have had during that time to say that I am your friend. I am here a representative of the southern people, one more slandered and maligned than any man in the nation.”

 

  • “I want to elevate you to take positions in law offices, in stores, on farms, and wherever you are capable of going.”

 

  • “I am your friend … We were born on the same soil, breathe the same air, and live in the same land. Why, then, can we not live as brothers? I will say that when the war broke out I felt it my duty to stand by my people. When the time came I did the best I could, and I don’t believe I flickered. I came here with the jeers of some white people, who think that I am doing wrong. I believe that I can exert some influence, and do much to assist the people in strengthening fraternal relations, and shall do all in my power to bring about peace.”

 

  • “When I can serve you I will do so. We have but one flag, one country; let us stand together. We may differ in color, but not in sentiment.”

 

  • “Go to work, be industrious, live honestly and act truly, and when you are oppressed I’ll come to your relief.”

 

And now they are attacking former President Theodore Roosevelt who was not really a racist in any common sense of the word. Roosevelt was certainly not a racist in the Southern tradition of hating his colored “inferiors”, oppressing them, and murdering them. The type of racism Roosevelt adhered to was common among whites, especially educated whites, that held it is the White Man’s Burden to care for and uplift blacks:

 

One view proposes that whites have an obligation to rule over, and encourage the cultural development of people from other cultural backgrounds until they can take their place in the world economically and socially. The term “the white man’s burden” has been interpreted by some as racist, or possibly taken as a metaphor for a condescending view of “undeveloped” national culture and economic traditions, identified as a sense of European ascendancy which has been called “cultural imperialism”. An alternative interpretation is the philanthropic view, common in Rudyard Kipling’s formative years, that the rich (whites) have a moral duty and obligation to help “the poor” (coloreds) “better” themselves whether the poor (coloreds) want the help or not. [Blog Editor: Similar text in paragraph scroll or page search for “From David Cody, The growth of the British Empire” at this link – http://widercontexts.gyldendal.dk/theempire/TheWhiteMansBurden/post-reading.aspx]

 

This style of racism probably shouldn’t be called racism because that is misleading. We don’t have a modern term that expresses the prevailing belief of the ruling class of the time. Roosevelt’s outlook was one of benevolence such as one has for a child. Condescending perhaps but not evil.

 

But because his statue outside the Museum of Natural History in New York City depicts him as a white man of great stature with two men subordinate and trailing behind, one black and one Native American Indian, the censors and the revisionists are demanding its removal.

 

Teddy Roosevelt on horse with Native American & Black American statue

 

And it’s a damn shame, because history is so much more complicated than just a few years out of any one person’s life, a life that holds so many different possibilities and opportunities to do the right thing for all, to never ask for forgiveness or to one day seek redemption and beg for forgiveness.

A Brief History of Antifa: Part II


Soeren Kern posted his “A Brief History of Antifa: Part I” at the Gatestone Institute on June 12. I cross posted it on my Blog on June 13 (adding a photo of a fed-up person kicking an Antifa person in the groin political toon that upset some social platforms). Here is the cross post of Part Two.

 

After I read this I formed an opinion that has been brewing on the inside of me for some time. TO BE CLEAR – My opinion is NOT at all formulated by the author (Soeren Kern) of this exposé – at least not in this article. After reading – ESPECIALLY the Antifa in their own words portion – It might be time for some local activism with your NRA or 2nd Amendment Clubs, BECAUSE it is becoming clear local government controlled by the Democratic  Party do NOT care about YOUR Life, Liberty or Personal Property. Again ESPECIALLY, if you are a Christian, Conservative and American believing in America’s heritage and exceptionalism.

A Brief History of Antifa: Part II

Antifa in the United States

 

By Soeren Kern

June 23, 2020 at 5:00 am

Gatestone Institute

 

  • “The only long-term solution to the fascist menace is to undermine its pillars of strength in society grounded not only in white supremacy but also in ableism, heteronormativity, patriarchy, nationalism, transphobia, class rule, and many others.” — Mark Bray, “Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook,” 2017.

 

  • “They’re coming from other cities. That cost money. They didn’t do this on their own. Somebody’s paying for this…. What Antifa is doing is they’re basically hijacking the black community as their army. They instigate, they antagonize, they get these young black men and women to go out there and do stupid things, and then they disappear off into the sunset.” — Bernard Kerik, former commissioner of the New York City Police Department.

 

  • The coordinated violence raises questions about how Antifa is financed. The Alliance for Global Justice (AFGJ) is an organizing group that serves as a fiscal sponsor to numerous radical left-wing initiatives, according to Influence Watch, a research group that collects data on advocacy organizations, foundations and donors…. The Open Society Foundations, Tides Foundation, Arca Foundation, Surdna Foundation, Public Welfare Foundation, and the Brightwater Fund have all made contributions to AFGJ, according to Influence Watch.

 

  • One of the groups funded by AFGJ is called Refuse Fascism … an offshoot of the Radical Communist Party (RCP)…. The group’s slogan states: “This System Cannot Be Reformed, It Must Be Overthrown!”

 

[Gatestone] Editor’s note: This is Part II of a series on the history of the global Antifa movement. Part I described Antifa and explored the ideological origins of the group. Part II examines the history, tactics and goals of the movement in the United States.

 

Antifa in the United States is highly networked, well-funded and has a clear ideological agenda: to subvert, often with extreme violence, the American political system, with the ultimate aim of replacing capitalism with communism.

U.S. President Donald Trump recently announced that the American government would designate Antifa — a militant “anti-fascist” movement — as a terrorist organization due to the violence that erupted at George Floyd protests across the United States.

 

The Code of Federal Regulations (28 C.F.R. Section 0.85) defines terrorism as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.”

 

American media outlets sympathetic to Antifa have jumped to its defense. They argue that the group cannot be classified as a terrorist organization because, they claim, it is a vaguely-defined protest movement that lacks a centralized structure.

 

As the following report shows, Antifa is, in fact, highly networked, well-funded and has a clear ideological agenda: to subvert, often with extreme violence, the American political system, with the ultimate aim of replacing capitalism with communism. In the United States, Antifa’s immediate aim is to remove President Trump from office.

 

Gatestone Institute has identified Antifa groups in all 50 U.S. states, with the possible exception of West Virginia. Some states, including California, Texas and Washington, appear to have dozens of sub-regional Antifa organizations.

 

It is difficult precisely to determine the size of the Antifa movement in the United States. The so-called “Anti-Fascists of Reddit,” the “premier anti-fascist community” on the social media platform Reddit, has approximately 60,000 members. The oldest Antifa group in America, the Portland, Oregon-based “Rose City Antifa,” has more than 30,000 Twitter followers and 20,000 Facebook followers, not all of whom are necessarily supporters. “It’s Going Down,” a media platform for anarchists, anti-fascists and autonomous anti-capitalists, has 85,000 Twitter followers and 30,000 Facebook followers.

 

Germany, which has roughly one-quarter of the population of the United States, is home to 33,000 extreme leftists, of whom 9,000 are believed to be extremely dangerous, according to the domestic intelligence agency (Bundesamt für Verfassungsschutz, BfV). Violent left-wing agitators are predominantly male, between 21 and 24 years of age, usually unemployed, and, according to BfV, 92% still live with their parents. Anecdotal evidence suggests that most Antifa members in the United States have a similar socio-economic profile.

 

In America, national Antifa groups, including “Torch Antifa Network,” “Refuse Fascism” and “World Can’t Wait” are being financed — often generously, as shown below — by individual donors as well as by large philanthropic organizations, including the Open Society Foundations founded by George Soros.

 

To evade detection by law enforcement, Antifa groups in the United States often use encrypted social media platforms, such as Signal and Telegram Messenger, to communicate and coordinate their activities, sometimes across state lines. Not surprisingly, the U.S. Department of Justice is currently investigating individuals linked to Antifa as a step to unmasking the broader organization.

 

Historical Origins of American Antifa

 

In the United States, Antifa’s ideology, tactics and goals, far from being novel, are borrowed almost entirely from Antifa groups in Europe, where so-called anti-fascist groups, in one form or another, have been active, almost without interruption, for a century.

 

As in Europe, the aims and objectives of the American Antifa movement can be traced back to a single, overarching century-long ideological war against the “fascist ideals” of capitalism and Christianity, which the Antifa movement wants to replace with a “revolutionary socialist alternative.”

 

The first so-called anti-fascist group in the United States was the American League Against War and Fascism, established in 1933 by the Communist Party USA. The League, which claimed to oppose fascism in Europe, was actually dedicated to subverting and overthrowing the U.S. government.

 

In testimony to the U.S. Congress in 1953, CPUSA leader Manning Johnson revealed that the American party had been instructed by the Communist International in the 1930s to set up the American League Against War and Fascism:

 

“as a cover to attack our government, our social system, our leaders… used as a cover to attack our law-enforcement agencies and to build up mass hate against them… used as a cover to undermine national security… used as a cover to defend Communists, the sworn enemies of our great heritage… used as a cover for preparing millions of people ideologically and organizationally for the overthrow of the United States Government.”

 

A precursor to the modern Antifa movement was the Black Panthers, a revolutionary political organization established in October 1966 by Marxist college students in Oakland, California. The group advocated the use of violence and guerilla tactics to overthrow the U.S. government.

 

Historian Robyn C. Spencer noted that Black Panther leaders were deeply influenced by “The United Front of the Working Class Against Fascism,” a report by Georgi Dimitroff delivered at the Seventh World Congress of the Communist International in July and August 1935:

 

“By 1969, the Panthers began to use fascism as a theoretical framework to critique the U.S. political economy. They defined fascism as ‘the power of finance capital’ which ‘manifests itself not only as banks, trusts and monopolies but also as the human property of FINANCE CAPITAL — the avaricious businessman, the demagogic politician, and the racist pig cop.'”

 

In July 1969, the Black Panthers organized an “anti-fascist” conference called “United Front Against Fascism,” attended by nearly 5,000 activists:

 

“The Panthers hoped to create a ‘national force’ with a ‘common revolutionary ideology and political program which answers the basic desires and needs of all people in fascist, capitalist, racist America.'”

 

The last day of the conference was devoted to a detailed plan by the Black Panthers to decentralize police forces nationwide. Spencer wrote:

 

“They proposed amending city charters to establish autonomous community-based police departments for every city which would be accountable to local neighborhood police control councils comprised of 15 elected community members. They launched the National Committees to Combat Fascism (NCCF), a multiracial nationwide network, to organize for community control of the police.”

 

In 1970, members of the Black Panthers created a terrorist group called the Black Liberation Army, whose stated goal was to “weaken the enemy capitalist state.”

 

BLA member Assata Shakur described the group’s organizational structure, which is similar to the one used by today’s Antifa movement:

 

“The Black Liberation Army was not a centralized, organized group with a common leadership and chain of command. Instead there were various organizations and collectives working together out of various cities, and in some larger cities there were often several groups working independently of each other.”

 

Other ideological anchors of the modern Antifa movement in the United States include a left-wing terrorist group known as the Weather Underground Organization, the American equivalent to Germany’s Red Army Faction. The Weather Underground, responsible for bombings and riots throughout the 1970s, sought to achieve “the destruction of U.S. imperialism and form a classless communist world.”

 

Former FBI Counterterrorism Director Terry Turchie has noted the similarities between Black Lives Matter today and the Black Panther Party and Weather Underground groups of the 1960s and 1970s:

 

“The Black Panther Party was a Marxist Maoist Leninist organization and that came from Huey Newton, one of the co-founders, who said we’re standing for nothing more than the total transformation of the United States government.

 

“He went on to explain that they wanted to take the tension that already existed in black communities and exacerbate it where they can. To take those situations where there is a tinderbox and light the country on fire.

 

“Today we’re seeing the third revolution and they think they can make this happen. The only thing that is different are the names of the groups.”

 

American Antifa

 

The roots of the modern Antifa movement in the United States can be traced back to the 1980s, with the establishment of Anti-Racist Action, a network of anarchist punk rock aficionados dedicated to fist-fighting neo-Nazi skinheads.

 

Mark Bray, author of “The Antifa Handbook,” explained:

 

“In many cases, the North American modern Antifa movement grew up as a way to defend the punk scene from the neo-Nazi skinhead movement, and the founders of the original Anti-Racist Action network in North America were anti-racist skinheads. The fascist/anti-fascist struggle was essentially a fight for control of the punk scene during the 1980s, and that was true across of much of north America and in parts of Europe in this era.

 

“There’s a huge overlap between radical left politics and the punk scene, and there’s a stereotype about dirty anarchists and punks, which is an oversimplification but grounded in a certain amount of truth.”

 

Anti-Racist Action was inspired by Anti-Fascist Action (AFA), a militant anti-fascist group founded in Britain in the late 1970s. The American group shared the British group’s penchant for violently attacking political opponents. ARA was eventually renamed the Torch Network, which currently brings together nine militant Antifa groups.

 

In November 1999, mobs of masked anarchists, predecessors to today’s Antifa movement, laid waste to downtown Seattle, Washington, during violent demonstrations that disrupted a ministerial conference of the World Trade Organization. The Seattle WTO protests birthed the anti-globalization movement.

 

In April 2001, an estimated 50,000 anti-capitalists gathered in Quebec to oppose the Third Summit of the Americas, a meeting of North and South American leaders who were negotiating a deal to create a free trade area that would encompass the Western Hemisphere.

 

In February 2003, hundreds of thousands of anti-war protesters demonstrated against the Iraq War. After the war went ahead anyway, some parts of the so-called progressive movement became more radicalized and birthed the current Antifa movement.

 

The Rose City Antifa (RCA), founded in Portland, Oregon, in 2007, is the oldest American group to use “Antifa” in its name. Antifa is derived from a group called Antifaschistische Aktion, founded in May 1932 by Stalinist leaders of the Communist Party of Germany. Antifa’s logo, with two flags representing anarchism (black flag) and communism (red flag), are derived from the German Antifa movement.

 

The American Antifa movement gained momentum in 2016, after Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, a self-described Socialist, lost the Democratic Party’s nomination to Hillary Clinton. Grassroots supporters of Sanders vowed to continue his “political revolution” to establish socialism in America.

 

Meanwhile, immigration became a new flashpoint in American politics after Donald Trump campaigned on a pledge to reduce illegal migration. In June 2016, protestors violently attacked supporters of Donald Trump outside a rally in San Jose, California. In January 2017, hundreds of Antifa rioters tried to disrupt President Trump’s inauguration ceremony in Washington, DC.

 

In February 2017, Antifa rioters employing so-called black bloc tactics — they wear black clothing, masks or other face-concealing items so that they cannot be identified by police — shut down a speech by Milos Yiannopoulos, a far-right activist who was slated to speak at the University of California at Berkeley, the birthplace of the 1964 Free Speech Movement. Antifa radicals claimed that Yiannopoulos was planning to “out” undocumented students at Berkeley for the purpose of having them arrested. Masked Antifa vandals armed with Molotov cocktails, bricks and a host of other makeshift weapons fought police and caused more than $100,000 in property damage.

 

In June 2018, Republican Representative Dan Donovan of New York introduced Bill HR 6054 — “Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018” — that calls for prison sentences of up to 15 years for anyone who, while wearing a mask or disguise, “injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates” someone else who is exercising any right or privilege guaranteed under the U.S. Constitution. The bill remains stalled in the House of Representatives.

 

In July 2019, Antifa radical Willem Van Spronsen attempted to firebomb the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention facility in Tacoma, Washington. He was killed in a confrontation with police.

 

That same month, U.S. Senators Ted Cruz and Bill Cassidy introduced a resolution that would label Antifa a “domestic terrorist organization.” The resolution stated:

 

“Whereas members of Antifa, because they believe that free speech is equivalent to violence, have used threats of violence in the pursuit of suppressing opposing political ideologies; Whereas Antifa represents opposition to the democratic ideals of peaceful assembly and free speech for all; Whereas members of Antifa have physically assaulted journalists and other individuals during protests and riots in Berkeley, California;

 

“Now, therefore, be it resolved, that the Senate … calls for the groups and organizations across the country who act under the banner of Antifa to be designated as domestic terrorist organizations.”

 

“Antifa are terrorists, violent masked bullies who ‘fight fascism’ with actual fascism, protected by Liberal privilege,” said Cassidy. “Bullies get their way until someone says no. Elected officials must have courage, not cowardice, to prevent terror.”

 

Antifa Exploits Death of George Floyd

 

Antifa radicals increasingly are using incendiary events such as the death of George Floyd in Minnesota as springboards to achieve their broader aims, one of which includes removing President Trump from office.

 

Veteran national security correspondent Bill Gertz recently reported that the Antifa movement began planning to foment a nationwide anti-government insurgency as early as November 2019, when the U.S. presidential campaign season kicked off in earnest. Former National Security Council staff member Rich Higgins said:

 

“Antifa’s actions represent a hard break with the long tradition of a peaceful political process in the United States. Their Marxist ideology seeks not only to influence elections in the short term but to destroy the use of elections as the determining factor in political legitimacy.

 

“Antifa’s goal is nothing less than fomenting revolution, civil war and silencing America’s anti-communists. Their labeling of Trump supporters and patriots as Nazis and racists is standard fare for left-wing communist groups.

 

“Antifa is currently functioning as the command and control of the riots, which are themselves the overt utilization of targeted violence against targets such as stores — capitalism; monuments — history; and churches — God.”

 

Joe Myers, a former Defense Intelligence Agency official and counterinsurgency expert, added:

 

“President Trump’s election and revitalization of America are a threat to Antifa’s nihilist goals. They are fomenting this violence to create havoc, despair and to target the Trump campaign for defeat in 2020. It is employing organized violence for political ends: destruction of the constitutional order.”

 

New York’s top terrorism officer, Deputy Commissioner for Intelligence and Counterterrorism John Miller, explained why the George Floyd protests in New York City became so violent and destructive:

 

“No. 1, before the protests began, organizers of certain anarchist groups set out to raise bail money and people who would be responsible to be raising bail money, they set out to recruit medics and medical teams with gear to deploy in anticipation of violent interactions with police.

 

“They prepared to commit property damage and directed people who were following them that this should be done selectively and only in wealthier areas or at high-end stores run by corporate entities.

 

“And they developed a complex network of bicycle scouts to move ahead of demonstrators in different directions of where police were and where police were not for purposes of being able to direct groups from the larger group to places where they could commit acts of vandalism including the torching of police vehicles and Molotov cocktails where they thought officers would not be.

 

“We believe that a significant amount of people who came here from out of the area, who have come here as well as the advance preparation, having advance scouts, the use of encrypted information, having resupply routes for things such as gasoline and accelerants as well as rocks and bottles, the raising of bail, the placing of medics. Taken together, this is a strong indicator that they planned to act with disorder, property damage, violence, and violent encounters with police before the first demonstration and/or before the first arrest.”

 

In an interview with The Epoch Times, Bernard B. Kerik, former police commissioner of the New York City Police Department, said that Antifa “100 percent exploited” the George Floyd protests:

 

“It’s in 40 different states and 60 cities; it would be impossible for somebody outside of Antifa to fund this. It’s a radical, leftist, socialist attempt at revolution.

 

“They’re coming from other cities. That cost money. They didn’t do this on their own. Somebody’s paying for this.

 

“What Antifa is doing is they’re basically hijacking the black community as their army. They instigate, they antagonize, they get these young black men and women to go out there and do stupid things, and then they disappear off into the sunset.”

 

After photos appeared to show protesters with military-grade communications radios and earpieces, Kerik noted: “They have to be talking to somebody at a central command center with a repeater. Where do those radios go to?”

 

Across the country, in Bellevue, Washington, which was also hit by looting and violence, Police Chief Steve Mylett confirmed that the people responsible were organized, from out of town, and being paid:

 

“There are groups paying these looters money to come in and they’re getting paid by the broken window. This is something totally different we are dealing with that we have never seen as a profession before. We did have officers that were in different areas that were chasing these groups. When we make contact, they just disperse.”

 

Antifa Financing

 

The coordinated violence raises questions about how Antifa is financed. The Alliance for Global Justice (AFGJ) is an organizing group that serves as a fiscal sponsor to numerous radical left-wing initiatives, according to Influence Watch, a research group that collects data on advocacy organizations, foundations and donors.

 

AFGJ, which describes itself as “anti-capitalist” and opposed to the principles of liberal democracy, provides “fiscal sponsorship” to groups advocating numerous foreign and domestic far-left and extreme-left causes, including eliminating the State of Israel.

 

The Tucson, Arizona-based AFGJ, and people associated with it, have advocated for socialist and communist authoritarian regimes, including in Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela. In the 2000s, AFGJ was involved in anti-globalization demonstrations. In the 2010s, AFGJ was a financial sponsor of the Occupy Wall Street movement.

 

AFGJ has received substantial funding from organizations often claiming to be the mainstream of the center-left. The Open Society Foundations, Tides Foundation, Arca Foundation, Surdna Foundation, Public Welfare Foundation, the Ben & Jerry Foundation and the Brightwater Fund have all made contributions to AFGJ, according to Influence Watch.

 

One of the groups funded by AFGJ is called Refuse Fascism, a radical left-wing organization devoted to promoting nationwide action to remove from office President Donald Trump, and all officials associated with his administration, on the grounds that they constitute a “fascist regime.” The group has been present at many Antifa radical-left demonstrations, also according to Influence Watch. The group is an offshoot of the Radical Communist Party (RCP).

 

In July 2017, the RCP bragged that it took part in violent riots against the G20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany. The RCP has argued that capitalism is synonymous with fascism and that the election of President Trump would lead the U.S. government to “bludgeon and eliminate whole groups of people.”

 

In June 2020, Refuse Fascism took advantage of the death of George Floyd to raise money for a “National Revolution Tour” evidently aimed at subverting the U.S. government. The group’s slogan states: “This System Cannot Be Reformed, It Must Be Overthrown!”

 

Antifa’s “Utopia”

 

Meanwhile, in Seattle, Washington, Antifa radicals, protesters from Black Lives Matter, and members of the anti-capitalist John Brown Gun Club seized control of the East Precinct neighborhood and established a six-square-block “autonomous zone” called the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, “CHAZ,” recently renamed “CHOP,” the Capitol Hill Organized (or Occupied) Protest. A cardboard sign at the barricades declares: “You are now leaving the USA.” The group issued a list of 30 demands, including the “abolition” of the Seattle Police Department and court system.

 

“Rapes, robberies and all sorts of violent acts have been occurring in the area and we’re not able to get to them,” said Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best. Several people have been wounded or killed.

 

Christopher F. Rufo, a contributing editor of City Journal, observed:

 

“The Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone has set a dangerous precedent: armed left-wing activists have asserted their dominance of the streets and established an alternative political authority over a large section of a neighborhood. They have claimed de facto police power over thousands of residents and dozens of businesses — completely outside of the democratic process. In a matter of days, Antifa-affiliated paramilitaries have created a hardened border, established a rudimentary form of government based on principles of intersectional representation, and forcibly removed unfriendly media from the territory.

 

“The Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone is an occupation and taking of hostages: none of the neighborhood’s residents voted for Antifa as their representative government. Rather than enforce the law, Seattle’s progressive political class capitulated to the mob and will likely make massive concessions over the next few months. This will embolden the Antifa coalition — and further undermine the rule of law in American cities.”

 

Antifa in its Own Words

 

The American Antifa movement’s long-term objectives are identical to those of the Antifa movement in Europe: replacing capitalism with a communist utopia. Mark Bray, one of the most vocal apologists for Antifa in the United States and author of “Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook,” explained:

 

“The only long-term solution to the fascist menace is to undermine its pillars of strength in society grounded not only in white supremacy but also in ableism, heteronormativity, patriarchy, nationalism, transphobia, class rule, and many others. This long-term goal points to the tensions that exist in defining anti-fascism, because at a certain point destroying fascism is really about promoting a revolutionary socialist alternative.”

 

Nikkita Oliver, former mayoral candidate of Seattle, Washington, added:

 

“We need to align ourselves with the global struggle that acknowledges that the United States plays a role in racialized capitalism. Racialized capitalism is built upon patriarchy, white supremacy, and classism.”

 

Patrisse Cullors, a co-founder of the Black Lives Matter movement, confirmed that the immediate goal is to remove President Trump from office:

 

“Trump not only needs to not be in office in November, but he should resign now. Trump needs to be out of office. He is not fit for office. And so, what we are going to push for is a move to get Trump out. While we’re also going to continue to push and pressure Joe Biden around his policies and relationship to policing and criminalization. That’s going to be important. But our goal is to get Trump out.”

 

Rose City Antifa tweeted:

 

“As antifascists we know that our fight is not just against organized fascism, but also against the capitalist state, and the police that protect it. Another world is possible!”

 

Seattle Antifascists added:

 

“This is the revolution, this is our time and we will make no excuses for the terror.”

 

A group called PNW Youth Liberation Front, Antifa’s youth organization, tweeted:

 

“The only way to win a world without police, prisons, borders, etc. is to destroy the oppressive systems which we are currently caught in. We must continue the fight against the state, imperialism, capitalism, white supremacy, patriarchy, and so on if we ever want to be free.”

 

A pamphlet distributed in the Seattle “Autonomous Zone” stated:

 

“The idea that the working class can control our own lives, without states, governments or borders, is also called anarchism. But how do we get from our current capitalist society to a future anarchist-communist one? …. In order to destroy the current order, there will need to be a revolution, a time of great upheaval.”

 

A poster in the Seattle “Autonomous Zone” stated:

 

“Oh, you thought I just wanted to defund the police? This whole system needs to go.”

 

One of the leaders of the Seattle “Autonomous Zone” said:

 

“Every single day that I show up here I’m not here to peacefully protest. I’m here to disrupt until my demands are met. You cannot rebuild until you break it all the way down. Respond to the demands of the people or prepare to be met with any means necessary. By any means necessary. It’s not a slogan or even a warning. I’m letting people know what comes next.”

 

A group called the Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement, which has nearly 15,000 Twitter followers, called for an insurrection:

 

“Revolutionary greetings from the insurrection sweeping throughout the occupied territories of the so-called United States of America.

 

“As the history of this miserable nation repeats itself once again, what has become clearly evident is that black people have been and will continue to be the only revolutionary force that is capable of toppling the oppressive status quo.

 

“Everywhere the pigs [a derogatory term for police] have lost their will to fight. Their eyes, which only yesterday were windows to empty hatred and contempt, now display stultifying self-doubt and cowardice. For once, their behavior portrays their weakness as every step they take back is marked by hesitation.

 

“Together, if we keep pushing, this land of chattel slavery, indigenous genocide, and foreign imperial aggression can finally be wiped out so that it will only be remembered as one of the more ugly chapters in human history.”

 

An Antifa radical from Maryland tweeted:

 

“This isn’t protest. This is rebellion. When rebellion gets organized we get revolution. We are seeing the beginnings of that and it’s glorious.”

 

An Antifa agitator from New York comments on the American flag:

 

“That sh*t is a f**king cloth with colors on it. It doesn’t live or breathe and is nothing but a representation. Any Black, Latinx, or Native person looking at that thing being respected, should be offended at that flag that represents genocide, rape, slavery, and colonization.”

 

An Antifa media platform, “It’s Going Down,” wrote:

 

“Looting is an effective means of wealth redistribution.”

 

An Antifa activist from North Carolina on free speech:

 

“The idea that freedom of speech is the most important thing that we can protect can only be held by someone who thinks that life is analogous to a debate hall. In my opinion, ‘no platforming’ fascists often infringes (sic) upon their speech, but this infringement is justified for its role in the political struggle against fascism.”

 

Torch Antifa Network, in response to President Trump’s announced plans to designate Antifa as a terrorist group:

 

“Antifa will be designating the United States of America as a terrorist organization.”

America: Gone With the Radical Wind


America’s Far Left Future toon by Ben Garrison (Cancel American Heritage)

 

If you are afraid or too blind to call the violent civil chaos exploited by Antifa, Black Lives Matter, Dems, the MSM and other assorted Marxist-oriented groups a coup, then get ready when the victims of violence grow weary of the failure of protection AND RISE UP. Then the word “coup” will be irrelevant as America’s Leftist race-baiters experience a cultural reprisal that history will mark the current civil unrest as the beginnings of an American Civil War.

 

Justin Smith examines Leftist historical revisionism trying to cancel America’s heritage that made our nation an exceptional beacon on a hill – until creeping Marxism began openly shoving open the door of totalitarianism.

America: Gone With the Radical Wind

Destroying Every Last Vestige of American History – None Are Spared 

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 6/18/2020 3:27 AM [UPDATED 6/19/20]

 

Detest all those white men if you will, but they were the ones who created the nation we inherited.”  ~ Pat Buchanan, June 15th 2020

 

America witnessed a fairly intense campaign to remove or destroy statues memorializing revered and honored men of the Confederate States of America in 2017, and in the wake of George Floyd’s murder by a policeman in Minneapolis, once again, America is seeing a broader range of destruction aimed at any and all statues, monuments, and memorials honoring all those men of impeccable character, who had some part in making America exceptional. Rioting, looting and burning American cities are no longer enough, and in their ignorance of historical fact, they peddle their revisionist history without factual foundation, and they also seek to destroy every last vestige, right down to the tiniest bit, of American history, even the movie ‘Gone With the Wind’, while police and public officials stand down, and even encourage them.

 

The new word for “racist” is “white”. If one is white in America today, Her radical element views one as a racist, and as such, every statue of any white person is a statue of a racist and is subject to being vandalized and pulled down. Decades of propaganda that taught blacks to continue to claim grievances against white people for the sins of slavery that happened centuries ago have now shown their grim results, and it is a dark day for all America.

 

Regardless of what part they played in America’s founding, or even if they were simply those early explorers to the New World, none are now spared, from Christopher Columbus to Thomas Jefferson and Spanish Conquistador Juan de Onate. It is no longer the Confederacy under attack. These radical young turks desire the obliteration of Western principles in America and a clean slate so they can recreate the nation as they believe it should exist, casting aside history and all the outstanding achievements of so many, along with those terrible deeds and the institutions of slavery and Jim Crow.

 

In Richmond, Virginia, the Capitol of the Confederate States, a statue of Christopher Columbus was pulled down and thrown in nearby Fountain Lake. This same scenario has played out over the past few years, as America’s radicals claim Columbus represents “genocide”. The Antifa, MLK and La Raza, Che Guevara commie types, forcefully assert that Columbus’s discovery brought the European invasion of the indigenous Native Indian tribal lands, something that the entire United States has been experiencing from Mexico, Africa and the Middle East since 1965.

 

All the nations of the globe have suffered an invasion of some sort at one time or another in their history. Why should the arrival of Europeans to the New World be seen as such a horrible historical event, when such an Exceptional Country was birthed from it? These anti-American detractors are pure evil and solely interested in destroying a country and a system that gave rise to freedom for more people than any other system or nation in the entire history of all mankind.

 

Some of our young turks refer to Columbus as “another notorious figure in the history of slavery”, even though 1492 far preceded the black Kingdom of Dahomey++ that created the black slave trade and the days that such a labor force was needed in the colonies. However, facts are irrelevant to these madding masses, and their “truth” is anything they pull from their nether regions that is emotionally satisfying.

 

++[Interesting Dahomey history:

 

 

 

 

So ignorant are they, it is surreal. Do they truly not know Columbus was merely searching for a new trade route to India, China and the Spice Islands?

 

The radicals in the streets and their hand-holders in Congress are now also going after all U.S. military bases named after Confederate generals

 

In continuing, please understand that nothing herein is an attempt, in any way, shape or form to justify the reprehensible and despicable evil of slavery or Jim Crow laws that were an inherent part of our heritage for much too long. It should have ended long before it did, but it shouldn’t have required a civil war and all that followed to see that black people were granted full rights as human beings from the very start.

 

The second week of rioting across America was coming to a close, when the radical Antifa and Black Lives Matter groups pulled down the statue of Thomas Jefferson, in Portland, Oregon on June 14th. They also defaced its base with vile graffiti and slogans.

 

Even though Thomas Jefferson owned many slaves, the times were such that any move to free the slaves shortly after our War for Independence would have virtually assured that the original thirteen colonies never would have joined in common cause in a “Union” of the states to form the United States of America. The “three-fifths” clause counting slaves as three fifths of a person for representation purposes was a compromise, one founded in the evil that would not easily relinquish its hold on those early day Americans. [See Also: Three-fifths Compromise; By Hans L. Eicholz; Center for the Study of Federalism; Last updated 2006]

 

Jefferson, the man who wrote the Declaration of Independence, noting “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights”, was also a fine common sense analyst of the complexities of the times. Regarding the incongruity between the words of the Declaration and the fact of slavery enshrined in the Constitution, in 1820, he would later write: “But, as it is, we have the wolf by the ear, and we can neither hold him, nor safely let him go. Justice is in one scale, and self-preservation in the other.”

 

Confederate statues have also recently been damaged and toppled in Mississippi, South Carolina, North Carolina and Tennessee, while Virginia has had the Richmond Howitzers Monument vandalized and the statue of Confederate leader Williams Carter Wickham toppled. The out-of-control lawless groups, in Richmond, even toppled the monument of Confederate President Jefferson Davis on June 10th, 113 years to the date of its dedication on June 3rd 1907.

 

Rioters in Portsmouth, Virginia beheaded four Confederate statues that encircle their Confederate monument on June 10th, without any regard for the law. They acted pre-emptively, because they were angry over Portsmouth’s City Council’s decision to delay moving the monument.

 

The radicals are apoplectic over Jefferson Davis who was the President of the Confederate States of America for approximately four years of a life well lived. Most of his life was spent in the service of the United States of America, as a military officer, a U.S. Senator and as the U.S. Secretary of War. During his military career, he fought in the Mexican-American War, leading a successful charge against Fort La Teneria in the Battle of Monterrey. Davis was also U.S. President Zachary Taylor’s son-in-law and he argued against secession. The statue of Davis was erected for good reasons.

 

Ironically, while Speaker Nancy Pelosi calls for the removal of 11 Confederate statues in the Capitol, her own father, Thomas D’Alesandro, Jr. dedicated monuments to two Confederate generals, Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee, in 1948, when he was Baltimore’s mayor. D’Alesandro suggested that people should be inspired by these men and should “emulate Jackson’s example and stand like a stone wall against aggression in any form that would seek to destroy the liberty of the world.”

 

Congressional Democrats are now also wailing and screaming for all military installations and ships bearing the names of Confederate generals, such as Bragg, Benning, and Hood, to be renamed. Initially, President Trump insisted he would not even begin to consider such a move, since very often these places were the last places seen by those fighting men who were sent to Europe, Asia and the Middle East, over the decades, and in the words of White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, “to suggest these forts were somehow inherently racist and their names need to be changed is a complete disrespect to the men and women.”

 

Unfortunately, President Trump is now revisiting the matter, as if he might be open to renaming them. This developed shortly after the Senate Armed Services Committee approved Senator Elizabeth Warren’s (D-Mass) amendment to the annual military spending bill — by a voice vote —  that would require the Defense Department to change the names of all installations and assets named for Confederate leaders. And incredibly, some GOP Senators, such a John Kennedy of Louisiana, are standing ready to help push this anti-American rename agenda.

 

As Pat Buchanan, noted author and former consultant to President Nixon, Ford and Reagan, recently observed: “Liberals will fight for the right of Marxist radicals to burn the American flag to show their hatred of it but cannot tolerate working folks flying the battle flag of the Confederacy to show their love of it.”

 

On June 10th, HBO Max announced it was removing ‘Gone With the Wind’ from its movie library. This 1939 movie, one of the best all-around stories one might ever watch on the Big Screen, or one’s 13″ television, is based on a bestselling novel that romanticized the Civil War. HBO has stated it could bring the movie back, after some discussion of its historical context and importance.

 

In part, the Democratic Party’s goal is to once again hijack the narrative by presenting a one-sided view of American history that is now ascendant, as the nation’s official “truth”, something they are challenged to deliver in reality. They want all Americans to see the South’s secession from the Union as an act of treason based in an ideology of white supremacy.

 

Far from the revisionist historical idiocy peddled by the anti-American media and their communist ilk in Antifa and Black Lives Matter, the Civil War was the result of irreconcilable differences over states’ rights, economic policies, slavery and a long litany of other complex issues, and the resulting defeat of the Confederacy was a crucial turning point in U.S. history. And even General David Petraeus has succumbed to the same brand of idiocy, accusing General Robert E. Lee of treason, without regard to the fact that it was Lincoln who violated the U.S. Constitution by invading sovereign states who freely joined the Union and had the inalienable right to freely leave the Union; any treason was committed by Lincoln to force the Union upon the Secessionist states, regardless of Lincoln’s noble or ignoble intent.

 

These ignorant revisionists shouting “racism” fail to understand that in the days of the Civil War, the general view was one’s home state was one’s country. The U.S. Constitution gave governing power to the sovereign states, and anything not specifically granted to the federal government by the Constitution fell under the auspices of the states. All of this changed after Lincoln’s war, and largely independent states became vassals of Washington, D.C.

 

General Robert E. Lee, a graduate of West Point, spent a lifetime fighting wars for the United States, against the frontier Indians and the Mexicans, as a Union officer. Lee had no plantation, or 200 slaves as falsely asserted by some graduates of the public “fool” system, who simply wish to defame the Good General. And he was so highly regarded that Lincoln first offered him a Union command, when the Civil War appeared to be inevitable; but, Lee was a Virginian and so he refused to lead an army to invade his country, his home, to ensure his fellow Virginians were not force-marched back into the Union they had just voted to leave, as was their right as a free people.

 

Lee simply fought for Independence, the same as George Washington, who owned slaves his entire life. That shouldn’t disqualify Lee from the company of decent men.

 

Far too many Americans, including some Republicans, in their rush to jump aboard the Purge America wagon, seem to forget our Declaration of Independence set America’s course and enabled Her to become this exceptional country that has created more liberty for more people worldwide in the entire history of all mankind. The Constitution carried the mechanisms that eventually moved America to free Her black people from slavery and end Jim Crow laws.  And, although our nation and culture would fight and endeavor over the centuries to rise to meet its creeds, inherent within our founding document was equality for slaves, the poor, our indigenous Native American Indians, women and the UnBorn Children. Our Founders had a dream that one day all Americans would live free and equal, regardless of race, or creed or the color of one’s skin, a dream that Dr Martin Luther King Jr. would echo on August 28th 1963.

 

On May 8th 2017, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice told Fox News: “I am a firm believer in ‘keep your history before you’ … Confederate heroes should be viewed in the context of their time instead of through the prism of modern values.”

 

But all of this is smoke and mirrors utilized effectively by the Democrats and their evil cronies, their Brown Shirts in the streets. The Declaration of Independence and the fine oration of Dr. King do not mean a damn thing to this new breed of American. [The new breed Communists] haven’t any real answers other than to cry for America’s downfall and hope something better rises from the chaos and the ashes.

 

America could destroy every Confederate monument, and rename all 109 public schools carrying the name of Lee, Davis or some other Confederate icon to the Martin Luther King Jr. or the W.E.B. Du Bois Middle School, and that would still not satisfy the left, especially the Black Caucus and some black and Hispanic communities across America. They would continue this cultural cleansing aimed at white society. Behind their remorseless drive against white culture is an egalitarian extremism rooted in hate and envy.

 

Constitutional conservative-minded Americans — All Americans who love this country — must stop the recently accelerated movement to erase America’s heritage in its entirety, because it is a tool used by the racists of the regressive Democratic Party and the Black Caucus and their foot-soldiers in Antifa and BLM to gain more power and destroy our constitutional republic. Their campaign, as always, uses “white supremacy” as the excuse to attack the Western and Judeo-Christian principles that built America.

 

And, as we ask again, where will this all end, most of us already know that it doesn’t end, until the radicals have destroyed us, or the good and decent Americans have stopped them.

 

In their zeal to create a sanitized fantasy world, where every bad thing to ever happen in America’s history is “Whitey’s” fault, the Democratic Party and their radicals in Antifa and Black Lives Matter and the anarchists and nihilists, in general, are destroying American and black history and eliminating anyone, and anything, they deem “racist” from the public square and the annals of history. The radicals are racing full steam ahead to destroy Western civilization and America’s founding, in order that they may seize the reins of power and create their hellish vision of an authoritarian socialist regime in America.
