The Silent Majority fights back

June 30, 2020 |

Well, it’s taken long enough, but I’m starting to sense a shift in the wind as the “silent majority” are getting sick of staying silent while America-hating jerks smash national monuments.

Immediately after President Trump signed an executive order requiring the enforcement of the federal law against vandalizing public statues and monuments, the Justice Department announced indictments of four men in connection with the attempts to topple the statue of Andrew Jackson in Lafayette Square in Washington.

The DOJ rightly drew a line between lawful protest and vandalism, stating, “This Office remains steadfast in its commitment to protect the sacred First Amendment right of individuals to peacefully protest, but these charges should serve as a warning to those who choose to desecrate the statues and monuments that adorn our nation’s capital: your violent behavior and criminal conduct will not be tolerated.”

I feel fairly certain that the idea of facing consequences for their actions will be a completely new experience for these folks, and one that their parents should have introduced them to long ago. They were among 15 people whose photos were tweeted by Trump and whom the DOJ is searching for. Naturally, some liberal media outlets accused Trump of “inciting violence” by tweeting their wanted posters. Here’s a hint: if you don’t want to be the subject of a federal manhunt, then don’t do things that put your face on wanted posters, like trying to smash national monuments. This seems like one of those “you knew the job was dangerous when you took it” situations.

Trump isn’t the only one who’s fed up with allowing rampant crime and destruction in the streets under the guise of protesting racism. In Oklahoma City, DA David Prater announced charges of terrorism, rioting and assault against protesters who turned violent in May. He said, “This is not Seattle. We’re not putting up with this lawlessness here.”

In Manassas, Virginia, a different kind of protest occurred when hundreds of people turned out for a “back the blue” march to support the police. Participants called it “disgusting” to tar every police officer because of what some bad cops elsewhere did, and said police might need better training or background checks for hiring, but as for “defunding the police, "Who in their right mind would even think that's a good idea…” In fairness, I don’t think being in your right mind has anything to do with that particular movement.

At this point, I guess I should stop and make it clear to those who like to take things out of context and leap to dumb conclusions that none of this is meant in any way to diminish the justifiable anger over the death of George Floyd. Indeed, that was something that people of all races across the political spectrum agreed on. The growing backlash is not against legitimate protesters who have genuine concerns about police behavior toward blacks. It’s against the radical left extremists from groups like Antifa, many of them young white adults from privileged backgrounds who were indoctrinated into socialism and hating America in college, who are exploiting the anger over Floyd’s death as a convenient excuse to attack the foundations of the country and try to eliminate the police.

They not only aren’t helping the black community, they’re actively harming it, and they don’t care. And not just by tarnishing the image of legitimate peaceful protesters. Their riots, arson and looting are destroying black-owned businesses and black people’s jobs, eliminating needed goods and services, and making black neighborhoods less safe by driving police out.

Even Bill Maher sees through this latest form of twisted “white savior” behavior as you can see at this link.

Also, check out the must-see video at that link by Ami Horowitz. He asked white leftists on the street who hate the police and want to abolish them if they think black people in East Harlem would agree with them. Well, of course, they would! So he went to East Harlem and asked black people about that. Their response: they think the white leftists who want to abolish the police are “ignorant” and “full of c**p.” They don’t want to live in the lawless chaos that would exist if there were no police.

And check out this blow-by-blow account of the scene at the attempt to take down the Emancipation memorial (the statue of Lincoln freeing a slave) in Washington. Black history reenactors attempted to tell the screaming activists (most of them white) the history of the statue and why it’s important. But what one young white woman called “disgusting” was the fact that they were expected to respect their elders.

And since there are so many white celebrities speaking for black people (without being asked) and calling for abolishing the police, here’s a celebrity rebuttal: Muhammad Ali Jr. says that his father would have called the people who are smashing shops and police stations, beating up innocent people and terrorizing communities “devils.”

And because I don’t believe in smashing heads to make political points, but I’m not averse to making leftists’ heads explode, I’ll also pass along this quote from The Greatest’s son, which has to represent the ultimate backlash against the past few weeks of anarchy:

“I think Trump’s a good president. My father would have supported him. Trump’s not a racist; he’s for all the people. Democrats are the ones who are racist and not for everybody.”

    I live in Oregon Ran into the Ground by Communist Kate Brown who when the Bundy’s occupied a abandoned Water fowl refugee in the middle of no where in Burns Oregon she sent the Feds in and they ambushed and killed a man with zero hesitation and arrested them all on a Federal charges. These people were treated terrible! But this Idiot not once has condemned the riots and looting in Portland! They have a war zone and have rioted nightly! The worthless mayor asked her for National guard back up 4 times and she refused! The left no longer can think what’s right and wrong as long as they don’t piss if their voters! They have literally lost any common sense what so ever!

    These leftist organizations that are organizing these events are the people we need to find and find now. They are the ones that are behind this.

    Andrew Jackson’s statue should have been taken down years ago! For what he did to our Native Americans with the Trail of Tears that killed hundreds of Natives! Take him off the 20 bill as well!!

    Thanks Governor, Great article. Now can we find some justice for the St Louis couple who had their guns confiscated. Seems like they have been left defenseless by the state.

    I believe in the First Amendment Right of peaceful protest. Smashing monuments, vandalism and looting are definitely criminal acts and people who do these must be dealt with the law/held accountable.

    We must be Proactive to take back our country. Their is a definite Marxist/Communist Agenda from Terrorist leaders who need to be çonvicted of treason against our nation and the Liberty for which it stands. What else will they try to take over? Already the White House and StJohns Church was burned. Statues toppled. Police cars burned. Police stations chained shit while officers are inside becoming captives and unable to help law abiding citizens for seven hours!! Please America wake up!

    About time people started to speak out against the movement that is trying to turn America into a third world country. We are the country of law and order. Thank God for the police to keep us safe. No one wants to live in Minneapolis MN or wants America to look like that and have horrible Democrat leaders to just let law abiding citizens be hurt and their businesses, jobs and property destroyed. The Cities with Democrat leaders need to vote them out asap. They are bad for our country.
