Peaceful Protests

women-trash

I support the idea and right of peaceful protest as provided by our Constitution.  There two words which make this a specific matter and those words are ‘peaceful’ and ‘protest’.  What I am seeing happening today are for the most part neither.  When I was working for a local tribe one of my duties was to represent the tribal community on an ethnic committee.  It was not uncommon for someone on the committee to try to make the issue into a color or race matter.  But our community was more than just the tribe.  When someone wanted to discuss the issue of children who were falling through the cracks of the system, I wanted to discuss the matter of children, all children, because that would be the only way we were going to correct the problem.  Children who were falling through the cracks was neither a color nor race, it was a child.  As I see the ‘protests’ of today I try to ask what is the issue or matter which is being protested against.  In most if not all recent cases I cannot see an issue.

The most recent ‘protest’ was labeled as a woman’s rights protest.  There are many injustices which women face.  I admit to not being truly versed on all these injustices but I do know of some of the injustices women globally are facing which could benefit from the women of America giving them a public face.  Women in many of the Islamic countries are being stoned for being raped.  They are being forced into sex slavery.  They are being forced to marry at ages of 9 or less.  But the protests which happened recently truly was nothing more than an advocacy of a particular idea which also equated into little more than indoctrination of the younger minds that were participating or watching.

It is my understanding that this protest for ‘woman’s rights’ excluded women who were pro-life.  Therefore this so-called protest was not about women’s rights but rather was a pro-abortion march disguised as a woman’s rights protests.  Nothing was aired regarding the imprisoned women of other countries, nothing was made of the Christian woman set to hang simply for her beliefs and no issue was made regarding the countless women forced to sexually please their Islamic ‘masters’.  More was made over Trump’s use of the term ‘pussy’ from ten years ago than was made over the stoning of women in present day Islam.  Now before someone calls me a male chauvinist pig all I am really asking of anyone of any protest is to be honest.  Call your march what is really is because if your cause is just and true then you do not need to place a mask upon it.

Looking at some of the pictures of the total and complete mess and mounts of trash left behind by the ‘protesters’ they either believe that only men work for the city sanitation department or must not care about THOSE women.  Some of the displays seen in this march were more disturbing or a matter of the disturbed than anything needed protected via the right of protest.  Wearing t-shirts saying ‘don’t call me sexy’ may address at some point a potential objectification of a woman but it is more a mantra of the old ‘woman’s lib’ movement rather than a marker of a woman’s rights matter.  It fits right in with calling a male handsome.  Some people see it as a compliment and nothing more.  If objectifying women was a target of the march then many of the participants themselves were guilty as they wore their pink vagina caps.  If this march was in reality simply an anti-trump rally then have the courage to call it an anti-trump rally.  If it was a pro-abortion march then call it a pro-abortion march.  But do not pretend to be address major issues pertaining to woman when the majority of the women of the world are being ignored.

The ‘purging’ of the South

new-orleans

One of the more despicable things that happened during 2016 was the movement to ‘purge’ America of the Confederacy.  There were those who were so righteous in their stance against the ‘evils’ of slavery and the idea that Confederacy equated slavery.  We can thank the liberal left, media and countless spineless brainless politicians for this lie being spread throughout many of the unthinking youth.  This misconception proves nothing if but our present generation has not be taught to think but merely to regurgitate that which their ‘educators’, or more properly their indoctrinators, have placed before them.  It appears we need a small lesson in history.

First I want to ask what is the difference between the liberal left, NAAACP and many of the Democrat party who promote this purge and the Nazi party of Germany?  The problem is that there is no difference.  The Nazi party burned books by the hundreds to eradicate anything and everything that was deemed unacceptable and opposed Nazi ideology.  This book burning to protect the minds and hearts of sensitive Nazis included works of Hemmingway and Helen Keller because she supported the rights of the disabled.  The liberal left wants any and all reference to the Confederacy removed from history because they find it offensive.  What I find so ironic is the number of Democrats who are part of this movement.  They find ‘racism’ under every rock except for in their own party.  The Democrat party was solidified in the middle 1800’s as a party to oppose the Republicans and their effort in abolitionism.  So according to their own rational the NAACP, liberal left, media and Democrat party must remove any and all references to any and all Democrat presidents or political figures, especially those prior to 1910 when I keep getting informed that the Democrat party change its ideology making it more in favor of the newly freed black person.  Unfortunately people such as Lyndon B. Johnson did not get that memo in that he was wildly racist.

Confederate statues and memorials are a part of American history.  Anyone who thinks that the Civil War was all about slavery has drank from the pool of liberal cool-aid and has yet to resurface.  There were free black Confederates fighting alongside white Confederates against what was seen as Northern invaders who were trying to take away State’s rights.  The North was not as noble in their cause as the left wants to present.  The North had to create an emotional issue in order to get the people behind a war action therefore created Uncle Tom and the horrors of slavery.  Now I am not here to say that there were not some things that were wrong but I am here to say that the North had no room in which to talk.  People of all ages who were put to work in the North in manufacturing businesses had as many risk if not more than the slaves of the South.  At least a slave had a value.  A child in the mills of the North had no value except for what he could produce.  If he or she got killed the owner simply went out and got another worker.  Irish slaves had no value.  Chinese were thought to be so worthless that they were not even included in census counts.  But those of the North who fears that the South would cut off the sea ports and the flow of raw materials knew that the people would not support war based solely on economics.  Therefore the ‘great evils of slavery’ became the scapegoat.  Do keep in mind that ‘slavery’ had been a part of all history and American history in both the North and the South for over 100 years prior to the Civil War when it suddenly because the great evil.  I find it interesting that the same people who are so self righteous against slavery say nothing about groups such as ISIS and areas of Islam around the world which practice slavery to this day.

Being a retired shrink I find people’s actions verses their words quite interesting.  The left and NAACP scream about slavery yet promote the Democrat cause.  Many of the radicals within the black movement are part of the Nation of Islam yet say nothing about the Islamic practice of slavery.  Those of the Democrat party who are so self righteous against slavery also sing the praises of the party totally overlooking how the party voted against the freed black person to have the right to vote or to become a citizen.  According to the actions of those who are so against anything to do with the Confederacy their issue is not with the South, Confederacy or even slavery.  Their issue is with demanding their own way and to impose their will upon others.  In the actions of the liberal left, many of the Democrat party and NAACP there is no difference between their actions and those of the Third Reich.  They want to control the hearts and minds of the youth and find the easiest way is to demonize anything which stand in opposition to a very narrow mindset.  The Third Reich did not want people to think independently and executed those who dared to speak out.  Today we have the ‘educators’ of the left who appear wise but are nothing but fools trying to infest the minds of the young with an ideology that is not based in fact nor history.

Got your six

thin blue line

Our politicians have thrown our police under the bus for the sake of votes.  Many have abandoned the very people who protect them for the sake of power and position.  The war on law enforcement continues with the blessing of groups like Black Lives Matter as they make the chants against law enforcement and people such as the various race baiters who would go broke if race ever ceased to exist continue to fan the flames of hate against the police.  There is something that these people have failed to take into consideration.  That is the common citizen.  There are many of us who are armed, trained, willing and ready to watch the backs of those who risk everything every day.  If a person thinks this war on the police is a race thing they are a fool.  If they think that it is just a police thing then they are more stupid than a box of rocks.  Let us get one things very clear.  Anyone who is willing to attack an armed and trained uniformed police officer will not hesitate one second to kill and unarmed untrained citizen who happens to get in their way.  This is why this war on the police must stop.  The only way any war stops is when the enemy fears their opponent.  Only then will this war cease.  Those who want to harm law enforcement must be made to fear those of us who will back our law enforcement.

This is a call for all citizens who love life and being able to live without fear from some moron who wants to demand his or her way through threats and intimation to step up and be noted.  If you can carry legally then do so.  If you see a law enforcement officer gassing his rig, out to eat or doing something that might pose a threat, pause and make sure they are safe.  If someone tries to hurt them, help them.  If that officer does not go home that night and you had an opportunity to aid him or her and you did not, then the harm that came upon that officer and their family is on YOUR head.  I do not tell anyone to do anything illegal because I do not want someone in an ugly suit knocking on my door.  What I will say is that whatever it takes for that officer to be able to go home at the end of their shift is fine by me.

The only thing that stands between anarchy and you is that officer.  If that line is breeched, the citizen will feel its effects.  If you do not care about yourself then realize that your parents, siblings and children will feel the ramifications.  Anyone willing to harm a police officer will harm a civilian.  There is no honor in harming a police officer.  There is no nobility in the riots.  There is no dignity in the protest that attack innocent people and destroys their property.  If a person wanted truly to simply protest something they can do so without destroy of property or threats to others.  I call upon every law abiding citizen to be the unseen eyes and ears for law enforcement.  I call upon everyone who loves to live in peace to be vigilant for those who are there to protect you.

I get so irritated at the critics of law enforcement.  Now I am not naive.  I know there are some bad officers because I carry some emotional scars from them.  But while I have never been a commissioned law officer I have been behind a badge and a warehouse at zero dark thirty looking for people who had not regard for others.  I have had positions where my cargo made my life not even worth the papers my name was written upon.  I know what it is like to know that the only thing standing between you coming home and not coming home is being a little crazier than your opposition and those who would do your harm.  I would love to stick some of these nitwit politicians who have no greater threat during the day than possible heartburn from eating too rich of foods, out with a target on their chest in the middle of the concrete jungle to see how long they would last.

I do not care if you are democrat, republican, white, black, brown or pink; the bullet that the thug will send the direction of a police officer would be just as easily sent in your direction.  It is time that the enemy feared good people again.  It is time that a line is drawn and this time when a line is drawn it means NO MORE.  We WILL have the backs of law enforcement.  We WILL watch out for them.  We WILL attack those who seek to do them harm.  We WILL with full vengeance and rightful anger be the unseen guardians for those who risk everything for an ungrateful people.  The politicians have made it so that the criminals do not fear the law so it is time that the criminals feared the people.  WE WILL STRIKE BACK!   We are armed; we are trained; we are willing; we are capable; we WILL HAVE THE BACK OF ALL LAW ENFORCEMENT.  ANY AND ALL WHO SEEK TO HARM LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS HAVE BEEN PUT ON NOTICE!

False Flag

false-flad

I hear in the news the words of declaration and warning coming from the CIA and other ‘top’ intelligence agencies.  There is just one problem.  These are the same agencies that have lied to the American people in the past and now we are supposed to believe them simply because they are saying something against Russia?  I don’t know about other people but right now I would be more inclined to believe Russia over my own government.  The FBI has all but destroyed their honorable record as proper and respectable law enforcement agency applying the law across the board without regard to politics, status, power or money.  The CIA is still so embroiled with Benghazi with their running weapons through Benghazi to Syria creating the situation in which four Americans were abandoned to die in order to keep things secret.  While not an ‘intelligence’ agency, the IRS is another top government agency which has sacrificed any and all credibility for the sake of political power as this administration decided to use this agency as its own thug organization to attack people and groups whose political ideology differed from this administration.  The IRS being a law unto itself has no other laws by which it seems to answer and therefore is able to run amok at will.  Now, please answer me this:  Why in the blazes should we believe anything this administration tells us?

In order to put some critics to bed may find it easier to attack the writer than to discuss what is written, I am as far from an anti-establishment anarchist as a person can get.  But I am a realist.  I will believe people until such time they prove that faith misplaced and then after that they must re-establish that basis of trust.  Our government and those so called top intelligence agencies, and top agencies in general, have lied to the American people and have misused their power to such extents that they must first regain any basis of faith and trust before anyone with a critical mind should jump to a position of believing anything they say.  These agencies have proven themselves to be puppets for this administration rather than stellar agencies of honor.  Now that this administration is desperately looking for a fall person upon whom to blame the election and discredit Trump suddenly Russia is the evil person daring to invade the sanctity of an election.  Unless a person has severe short term memory loss it does not take much to think back to the last election held in Israel.  As history proves and recalls our present administration had a direct hand in supporting the opposition party against Netanyahu.  Yet suddenly now trying to persuade an election of another country is tantamount to an act of war.  You really have got to love the irony and hypocrisy of our present administration.

Our leading agencies in the country must learn a simple fact of life that we try to teach our children (or at least previous generations tried to teach their children).  If you want respect, earn it.  If you lie to people you have just lost whatever respect you might have just earned.  Once you lose respect it will take you at least twice as long to rebuild that respect.  There is no government agency that has any basis upon which they should just assume that the American people are going to believe them.  Our government has lost all basis for respect and credibility.  Do not expect the people to just fall at their feet again believing their ‘expert opinion’.
