I rode through a hurricane and I’m about to ride through another one. That experience changed my perspective. Some people say we should tear down our civilization and culture so we can start over. I suspect they have not seen what I have seen where everything people have built has been wiped away. Seeing widespread destruction renewed my commitment to help my neighbors in need. Most of us share that impulse. Unfortunately, our compassion also means we can be manipulated by politicians and the mainstream media. Would socialists in the US try to influence the election by committing acts of violence and blaming President Trump? Let me remind you about some unpleasant truths.
We are not all the same and we don’t all think the same way. During the recent hurricane, there was some looting, burglary, and robbery. Because we don’t see violence every day, we forget how easy it is for people to justify their stealing from others.
We believe different things. Most of us believe that individuals have rights. In contrast, committed leftists believe in the rights of groups rather than the rights of individuals. Leftists are all for diversity until an individual’s choice comes in conflict with the goals of a politically favored group. That is when individual lives are sacrificed to the goals of the Democrat bosses.
Recently, the left says they support women’s rights, but it is more important that a mother and child be left to the mob than for the mayor of Fredericksburg, Virginia to oppose BLM protesters. Mayor Mary Greenlaw apologized to the rioters rather than to the mom who was mobbed in her car.
Remember when US diplomats and embassy guards were left to die in order to cover up the failings of a politically powerful secretary of state. Hillary Clinton was considered more important than the people on the ground in Benghazi.
The recent political violence makes sense after we look at our political history. The bosses of the Democrat party were desperate after the Trump economy eliminated minority unemployment. Trump lifted blacks out of poverty better than decades of liberal welfare programs. That success story had to be erased from the history books and from our memories before the election.
Socialists used BLM to rewrite the story of black poverty in the US. BLM attacked local businesses. They blamed “systemic racism” for poverty and shifted the blame away from corrupt politicians in our Democrat controlled cities. The mainstream media parrots the BLM political talking points. That media narrative is essential to brand the socialist brownshirts as sympathetic figures rather than as violent thugs with a criminal history. This media manipulation worries me the most.
Consider that the CIA and FBI started a groundless investigation of the Trump campaign to cover up illegal acts by Hillary Clinton. Remember that criminal investigators die unexpectedly when they dig into elite pedophile rings. Too many people have died around the Clinton campaign to expect compunction now, and Epstein didn’t kill himself.
What does this mean for BLM and Antifa? It means the media is ready to blame Trump if someone physically attacks a BLM riot. Our moral outrage would sway this election. If someone shoots into the riot, the blame on Trump will be halfway around the world before the EMTs arrive.
I can’t trust the Clintons because of the many mysterious deaths that surround them. I wouldn’t put an outrage like this past the people controlling Biden and Harris either.
I hope we don’t see violence and deceit used to sway this election. I hope the media is honest. I hope voters are wiser than the party bosses.
