There’s a lot of talk about home grown terrorists today. A major fault of the conversation is the concentration on Islamic terrorism. While this is a valid concern, it is certainly not the only, and maybe not the most dangerous, threat to the United States and the people herein.
Islamic terrorists want to destroy those of us deemed infidels. They want Sharia as the law of the land and the world and they are willing to impose it upon us by any means possible. Killing with guns, bombs, automobiles or any method available is not to be scoffed. These radicals cause fear and terror as we assume our daily duties. But they are not the only terrorists.
The fascists / communists calling themselves Antifa and Black Lives Matter are of equal concern. While fascism is generally considered a far right doctrine, the activities are also a far left concept. Philosophers and historians, recognizing a pattern of similarity, developed the Horseshoe theory whereby the left/right spectrum is not linear but more like that of a horseshoe. The two radical and violent factions are far closer than normally accepted because the methods by which they choose to accomplish their goals parallel one another.
The horseshoe theory makes sense. In the past, I have questioned some of the actions of the far right (militias and militant anarchist groups) because they seem to be those which, to me, looked to be those of the radical or loony left. Since becoming aware of the horseshoe theory, that question is answered. The radicals at both ends of the spectrum could at some time join forces for some movements.
Thus, classifying far left groups and their leaders who terrorize others with violence and mayhem as fascists, is not the misnomer many choose to believe. In order to intimidate rally participants, disrupt meetings, speakers, parades and events with which they don’t agree, they often do so by inciting anger, becoming violent and using weapons. They break windows, burn buildings and cars and use mace or pepper spray, fists and rocks to silence their opposition. That is terror; that is fascism! Even what’s left of the press in Venezuela refer to these tactics as rioting. Our (center left) news sources generally prefer to call them peaceful protests with a few incidents.
These terrorists got their running start with the elections of 2016. The useful idiots are commanded from behind the curtain by George Soros and his sub-lackeys (Obama – the community organizer, Schumer – the Democrats balker in chief and Warren – another hate spewing fanatic) through myriad organizations funded and directed by the above.
Remember the quote from Michele Obama, “Barack knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices; we are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation”?
Political correctness taught to our youth and forced upon us is intentional and nefarious modification of our language. (changing our conversation) Eliminating references to Christmas and Easter, the removal of all civil war statues, portraits and plaques; the renaming of buildings, streets and schools are simply illustrations of her quote from 2008. (Changing our traditions and history)
Like any radical Islamist group like ISIS, these people want to destroy America. They want to eliminate our heritage, our history and any good the future might bring.
The “protests” began early in the election to stall the Republican party and the increasing base of Donald Trump. They continued through the election and rapidly escalated to violence with the vote on November 8. Today, the anarchists find any venue possible to express their fascist viewpoints.
In typical leftist maneuvering, they blame anyone and everyone other than their own actions for their actions. They blame the police who arrest members for breaking the law.
The time is coming to fear these groups as we do our world enemies. They are here now, they are home grown and they are viciously violent. Soon the tide will turn. Patriots will withstand only so much. After that they will turn from center right to far right and respond in kind. Personal defense at rallies will become equal and opposite. Blood will be shed on both sides as the puppet masters giggle hideously.
The country is on very shaky ground right now. Not only do we have nuclear threats from the Middle East and Far East, we have to watch our backs at every large gathering we attend.
Perhaps ISIS and other radical Muslim groups are not the only major threats to our nation.
