Good folks all over the place are so tired of being told that what’s been going on in cities like Portland and Seattle are peaceful protests.
Instead of trying to understand the wobbly language that’s being bandied about, the better route is to take a long hard look at what’s actually happening.
For more than two months street thugs armed with rifles, lasers, bombs, flame throwers, swords, spears, and an assorted array of sick weaponry have terrorized to the hilt average everyday people.
Meanwhile Democratic Party hacks and their media toadies give attaboys to the perpetrators. They insist that there’s no violence going on anywhere. They while away their leisure lockdown hours plotting ways in which they can torment their political enemies. And cruelest of all, they turn a deaf ear to folks who cry in the dark for help that never comes.
Here’s a little animal tale to ponder.
Early in June while on a walk through the park some Portland police came across a pig that had fallen asleep on the ground. The officers took to Twitter to see if the pig’s owner could be located. A photo of the little guy was displayed on the official police page along with a phone number and message that encouraged a happy reunion.
The presence of the animal in the park would be an eerie foreshadowing of something insidious that would take place about a month and a half later.
Last week rioters sent yet another symbolic message of the appalling kind. They set a pig’s head on fire. Atop the animal’s head was a police hat. An American flag completed the smoldering scene.
As if an incinerated pig’s head in police attire and a torched American flag didn’t assault the psyche enough, footage of another ugly event was posted on the internet. It showed participants, who were wielding Black Lives Matter signs and being cheered on by bystanders, happily hurling stacks of Bibles onto a blazing bonfire.
Providentially, Twitter user Ian Miles Cheong would catch the whole thing on tape.
Burning books is very much a specialty of fascists.
The Nazis did it in the 1930s.
But burning the Holy Bible? Even in fallen away corners this is not going to sit well.
Guess it should have been apparent though, considering the recent comments made by BLM activist Shaun King, who used a series of Twitter posts to urge the destruction of images and statues of Jesus Christ, his Blessed Mother Mary, and other figures from scripture.
"Yes I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down. They are a form of white supremacy," King tweeted.
King also posted that "white Jesus is a lie" and is a "tool of white supremacy," which in King’s words was created to help white people use Christianity as a "tool of oppression."
King then wrote that all of the Christian imagery should be taken down, including "murals and stained glass windows of white Jesus, and his European mother, and their white friends."
It was inevitable, being the Marxist-based global organizations they are, that BLM, Antifa, and like-minded radicals would attempt to defile, denigrate, and destroy the biblical message and its mystical messengers.
After all, Judeo-Christian scriptures hold within them the very ideas upon which America in particular, and the whole of Western civilization in general, are built.
The Bible has often been viewed by the left with contempt, and for good reason.
A government based on the Rule of Law, which sprang forth from laws transcribed by Moses and enshrined in the Ten Commandments, frequently prompts negative reactions on the part of those who are threatened by absolutes.
Donald Trump Jr. used his Twitter account to comment on the recent Bible burning.
"Now we move to the book burning phase. I’m pretty sure ANTIFA doesn’t actually stand for what they say it stands for. Maybe just remove the anti part of [its] name and it’s perfect," Trump Jr. posted.
Organizations lurking behind the aforementioned street thugs are hell-bent on destruction.
Like all of the committed Marxists before them, the "utopian" world they seek can only exist when freedom dies.
The Bible is truth. The truth will set you free. Freedom is forever.
