Peeling the Onion

America dodged a bullet on Saturday August 19, 2017 in Boston when, it seems, that, at least on one side, cooler heads prevailed and decided to call off a rally that was all cocked and primed to continue the chaos that plagued Charlottesville, Virginia the week before.

I want to commend the Boston law enforcement apparatus for the strategic planning and the follow through action they took to manage the elements and prevent a violent confrontation.

Unfortunately, I fear that this will not be the case in the coming weeks when those who claim to be motivated by civil justice and are actually motivated by hate and a desire to tear down the status quo, and I am referring to the fringe element on both sides of the barricades, will again take to the streets.

If this situation is allowed to go on it will soon escalate into death and the destruction of property and unprecedented animosity as the casualties on both sides mount and revenge joins the violent motives already in play.

Just where does the blame fall?

Regardless of what the media and the apologists would tell you, there is blame for the violence on both sides, it’s only common sense, since it’s certainly not one side fighting among themselves.

Even on television you can see violence taking place on both sides of the barricades and the provocateurs are easy to point out, elements of both sides came to the event for the sole purpose of provoking and reacting to a violent confrontation.

I would bet a Cadillac to a mule collar that there are paid participants, professional rabble rousers and many who couldn’t even give a coherent explanation of why they were there in the first place.

And there’s bound to be a few fringe crazies and nut jobs like the idiot who ran his car into a crowd of protestors, killing a young woman he didn’t even know. In my book, he is a domestic terrorist and should be treated as such.

So where do we go from here and what do we do to quell the violence.

I don’t know how we can quell it, but one thing I do know, it is definitely not past the power of our law enforcement to contain it and the federal, state and municipal powers that be had best be about doing it before American cities start burning and a body count begins.

Personally, I believe that our current civil unrest is provoked and supported, that it is just one piece on an international chess board, an all-out frontal assault by the shadowy global movers and shakers to bring down a president they can’t control.

Stop and think, after years of being able to control the flow of undocumented cheap labor into this country and suddenly you’re faced with a president who is determined to build a wall to put an end to it, what would their reaction be?

And after having the ability to adjust the price of oil around the world and you’re faced with a president who is determined to drill and frack America’s way to total petroleum independence with plenty left over for export what do you do?

When you’ve been able to affect a nation’s policy toward taking in refugees in numbers sufficient to change the racial makeup of that nation and eventually control the politics
and America has a president who refuses to participate what’s your reaction?

When you’re used to influencing the makeup of a president’s cabinet and a maverick comes along and doesn’t even seek or accept your recommendations how do you react?

But the most important thing we have to remember, no matter how the vested parties try to persuade us, the people on the streets of both persuasions are but a grain of sand when compared to the 308,746,000 souls who make up the population of this country and want the whole thing to go away.

America is supposed to be a nation of laws and provides places for grievances to be aired, by judicial or legislative means.

Nothing will be settled by bloodshed and destruction, and that’s exactly where this is headed and John Q Public, who has yet to be heard from, is not going to sit docilely by and watch his family put in danger and his neighborhoods destroyed.

Is there actually anybody who thinks that even if all the disputed monuments were removed everybody would fold their tents and go home?

Naw, this is just the appetizer, the main course is yet to come.

Do you want to see the play book?

It’s called ‘Rules for Radicals’ by Saul Alinsky

What do you think?

Pray for our troops, our police and the peace of Jerusalem.

God Bless America
