Black Lives Matter and Antifa Are Finding Public Opinion and Resistance Against Them On The Rise.

Black Lives Matter and Antifa Are Finding Public Opinion and Resistance Against Them On The Rise.

If If one looks at the different uprisings in the US over time, you find there is a short period, usually a day or two, maybe a week, where people react to what they see as injustice. This has resulted in shocking the public and the leadership of this nation into acting, but what happens when it carries on and one, with no clearly defined goal, or one that is racist? We are seeing the results of this now against Black Lives Matter and Antifa.

If you look at the Watts Riots, they lasted 6 days, were set off by a fight against police, rumors that have never been substantiated (If one looks at the different uprisings in the US over time, you find there is a short period, usually a day or two, maybe a week, where people react to what they see as injustice.

While civil leaders moved to make changes, which was good, the side effect that no one ever spoke of is that businesses, after experiencing looting, destruction of their property, moved out of the area. People love to come out and scream cultural apartheid, but it has nothing to do with this if you are a business, and you know the area you have your business in could set off and do this again, would you risk placing your business there? I sure wouldn’t. Now years later, the area is run down, most companies have left, no one wants to return due to risks of rioting, looting, and burning.

We saw the same with the 1964 Dixmoor race riot. An African American woman shoplifted a bottle of liqueur, the shoplifter was detained, wrestled to the ground, and then held until the police came, after which she was arrested. The people rioted again, claimed she was arrested because she was black, she wasn’t detained due to her skin color, she was arrested because of shoplifting, they responded by burning down the store and buildings around it, looting and rioting for two days. The result? Nothing, businesses moved out, now the place, almost 60 years later, is still having a hard time getting companies to locate into the area.  

We are seeing a different thing that started this set of rioting off, with George Floyd, the criminal act that resulted in his death, but this was not a systematic issue with the police in Minneapolis, this was a single cop with a grudge, killed a man, is now awaiting trial. But what is not stated is Floyd was a vile man, he was no hero, he spent time in and out of prison, robbed a pregnant woman in her own home, this was after threatening her by pressing his gun against her stomach and threatening to shoot her baby within her, then pistol-whipped her when she refused to comply. When he was caught, he was passing counterfeit money, then fought with the police. I am not making excuses for what was done at the end, but this is not someone I would riot over. 

These riots quickly spread across the nation, soon another man was killed in Atlanta, but he was killed after he assaulted two cops, took a taser off of one and was shot when fleeing when he tried to shoot one of the cops with a taser. Once more, we saw more riots, the place, Wendy’s, where he had fallen asleep in their drive-through lane, the thugs showed up and burned it to the ground. Naturally, we found out later this man was off visiting a girlfriend, then going home to his family, was on probation for child abuse, he did not wish to be arrested because he knew an arrest would have him back in jail. Once more, the people added to the rioting already going on. 

With this, we heard cries that the cops should have let this individual walk home, but what would have the community and much of the Democrat leadership have said if they did this and he committed another crime. What we have is precisely as Candice Owens likes to state, the Black Community is not lifting people like Ben Carson, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice as heroes, they lift thugs and criminals and act like they are the victims.

We then have the people amid these riots wonder why most Americans don’t support them; there is a good reason for this. When a thug attacks a cop, we think shoots at them, if they get hurt or killed, it is due to their stupidity, not police corruption. We saw with a case of an Antifa thug trying to rip open the door of a vehicle gets slammed to the ground, what did the punks then do? They screamed for the police. I thought they wanted them disbanded, why would they call for them, seems they aren’t holding to their principles very well. 

Yet here is the question, how long is the average American going to be willing to put up with this? Most of us have no issue with you marching, even if we don’t agree with what you are marching over, voicing your concerns is your right. Still, we have a problem when we see month after month; it has been going on since May, this rioting, looting, assaulting innocent people, Americans are getting tired of this, if the police and authorities do not take care of this, you’re going to start to see more and more citizens take the law into their own hands.

We pay taxes to pay for the police, police that is supposed to protect our lives and our property, yet the people we elected into office are tying the hands of the police, refusing to allow them to do their job, we must start to ask, what then are we paying taxes for? And what are these politicians doing in office? If these politicians are not doing what they were elected and gave the oath to do, maybe it is time to put them on a rail and drive them out of office. One has to wonder, would they stand by their principles and not call the police? Wait, they have private security at the taxpayer’s expense. You really can’t make this idiocy up.

What is not What is not shown are the calls on the ground, where people are openly calling for an armed revolution, to overthrow this government and put in a socialist government.

Warning: language

What should concern leaders more is how long is Joe Citizen going to put up with this, how long until they rise in mass and start doing what the authorities will not do? More so, we hear threats of Antifa and Black Lives Matter that they will go out to the country, bring their riots there, do they think the people in the suburbs will tolerate this? I know the people in the country won’t; they will come out armed and ready to shoot.

If you look at polling, most Americans want nothing to do with socialism or communism, yet this minority is trying to force this on the majority. In the polling, only 28% of Americans had a favorable view of it; 58% said they have an unfavorable view and want nothing to do with it.

What is seen is how Sanders could not win the nomination, neither could Warren, this shows even the Democrats rejected socialism, but the minority was determined to press their ideology, the riots were a perfect excuse.

We are now faced with riots going on for three months; people are starting to take matters into their own hands. I told someone the other day, “The problem with these protests and riots is they happened too early. If they had occurred in September or October, they would have had the American public on their side, but if they carry this on until November, they will quickly find this support is fleeting.”

The problem with these protests and riots is they happened too early. If they had occurred in September or October, they would have had the American public on their side, but if they carry this on until November, they will quickly find this support is fleeting.

We see now event after event happening, or being forced to keep this going, but even with this support among the majority is slipping away, as time goes on the minority, the Black community will start to turn their back on this group as well.

This was seen with the #MeToo movement, they first started to accuse everyone of a crime, yet gave no chance for one to defend themselves, then turned the movement into a highly political anti-Trump movement, now it is nothing but a whisper of what it once was.

We are finding as time goes on, people are not willing to be dragged out of their cars. We have the case in Seattle, where a group of people trying to stop a vehicle found the driver was willing to shoot rather than be dragged from his car.

In other cases people attacking vehicles are finding people are willing to run them over rather then be assaulted.

Others are now not caring if the protestors are violent or not, just driving through them.

People are taking up arms to protect themselves from protestors. We hear that this is uncalled for, but we have seen these “peaceful” protests turn violent in a hurry. When the people heard protesters threaten to burn down their home, killing both the husband and wife brought out their weapons to stop this. If you are going to march through a residential area and threaten the people, they have a legal right to bring out guns if you attempt to carry through with your threats.

What the left is doing is pushing towards a civil war. Make no mistake, this is their goal, to seize control of the government and our lives by force, their leaders openly admit this, the question is, how long is the average American going to allow this to continue before they start to fight back?

Black Lives Matter and Antifa may wish to watch out; if the people they are attacking tire of this and do makeup 70% of the American population, they will find themselves quickly put to rest.

Americans are slow to anger, but once you anger this silent majority, you’re going to find the violence you have inflicted on so many is going to come back for you.
