Another morning (August 26, 2020) arrives here in south central Wisconsin. The sun is shining and I wake up and start get ready for the day ahead. I turn on the news on my smarter than me phone to find out what levels of destruction the protesters and rioters have brought upon our society and the news shows me, yet again, that the protests and riots overnight can indeed get worse than they were the day before. The rioting in Kenosha WI over night resulted in two shooting deaths and one shooting injury. This spiral downward is happening too often and unfortunately I really wasn’t surprised.
Then something struck me; I wasn’t surprised and somehow I was actually expecting this kind of “blood in the streets” event to unfold on our streets somewhere across the United States; after-all, violence begets violence using a tit-for-tat rationalization on an ever increasing violent scale. The way things have been going in our streets, I fully believed that this was inevitable. In fact on Monday I wrote the following on another Madison WI bloggers topic of ‘Do Whatever You Want’ which was talking about the start of the Kenosha, WI protests and a call to action for Madison, WI rioters. I was writing about the protesters I had seen in one of the Kenosha, WI protest videos and I wrote in part…
In a group of about 30 people scattered around the vehicle, I counted two AR’s, I think I caught sight of one concealed pistol that printed under a shirt, one person had what appeared to be a bat.
This is going to end very badly.
Later in the morning and afternoon when I had time I went from one news media outlet to another and what I found was that there really didn’t seem to be any surprise around the United States that shooting had erupted in the riots and now there was literally dead people and blood on the streets. That was shocking to me. Our society has morphed its thinking so badly into the abyss of “accepting” that this kind of violence was inevitable and not surprising! This is a TERRIBLE signature significant sign about our how our society has morphed and it leads me to think that violent retaliation is right around the corner and no one will be surprised! Remember, using a tit-for-tat rationalization, violence is always on an ever increasing scale of destruction.
There are anarchists, totalitarians, Fascists, Marxist, Socialists, extremists of all shapes and sizes marching in our streets immersed in irrational political movements created by Black Lives Matter, ANTIFA, Freedom Inc. and similar groups are trying to fundamentally destroy the United States as it is and replace it with whatever it is that their irrational immature adolescent minds are thinking.
You think I’m wrong; well think again!
Remember what these social justice intimidators are doing, yelling, and posting as graffiti on destroyed store fronts across the United States, “If this country doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it”, this is a “revolution”, they hate ALL Police, “Fuck the Police”, “Defund the Police”, “Abolish the Police”, “Fuck White People”, “Empty the Jails”, “All White People Are Racists”, “Silence is violence”, “Hate Speech = Murder”, don’t arrest and prosecute criminals if they are black, “Abolish the Criminal Justice System”, “Police are Hunting Blacks to Kill Them”, the entire system is racist – “systemic racism”, “No Justice, No Peace”, “If we don’t get what we want, we will shut it down”, there are those that are trying to destroy our historical monuments, some are judging 17th 18th, 19th, and early 20th century people based on 21st century values, trying to punish 21st century people for the sins of those in the 17th 18th 19th and early 20th century, etc, etc, etc. Does this sound to you like these people are thinking like rational adults and just trying to make things “better”?
Wake Up People!!!
These are people that are demanding rights but refuse to accept any responsibility; this is immature adolescence, it’s stupid people and they are taking over our streets. We have subversion and sedition minded adolescents and young adults running wild and for the most part the only ones opposing them are the police. Baldfaced uninhibited intimidation like we are seeing now from stupid people is how anarchists, totalitarians, Fascists, Marxist, Socialists and extremists take over a society and the majority of the apathetic population is allowing it to happen.
Take heed of the prophetic words from Martin Niemöller:
First they came for the Socialist,
and I did not speak out because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists,
and I did not speak out because I was not a Trade Unionists.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak for me.
If you aren’t very concerned about the escalations of violence with protesters, rioters, and criminals in our streets these days you better get your head out of the sand and look at the reality that’s facing us. This violence could be on your doorstep if rationally thinking people don’t somehow take control of our rapidly crumbling society.
Now back to this morning…
As my mind wandered this morning while I was getting ready for the day and watching the news, I thought to myself “Ok, what’s going to happen next?”
