Morning Greatness: More Riots, Burning, and Destruction Over the Weekend

Good Monday morning.

Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:

  • The president meets with the Attorney General
  • President Trump hosts a video teleconference with governors, law enforcement, and national security officials on keeping American communities safe
  • The president has lunch with the Vice President

I have some good news and some bad news

Let me give you the good news first: we aren’t really worried about the Chinese virus spreading through large public gatherings. Social distancing? Never heard of it. Well, some people are worried, but not that much.

The bad news is that the major American cities are on fire, full of violent protests/looting and the police can’t/won’t stop them.

The protests started when some African American dude (his name was George Floyd) who no one remembers because we are only talking about violence, arson and looting now, was murdered by a psychopath cop. Protesting began and then malefactors decided to take advantage of the opportunity and get violent, burn things and destroy property. So what began as universal disgust and outrage with police violence has now fractured society into people who support violence and destruction (Antifa, the Media, Democrats) and people who don’t like civil unrest.

The current situation is that the media and pathetic Democrat politicos, who are in charge of all these cities that are burning and where police are accused of abusing the citizens, are pretending that these riots are really just protests. However, the violent Antifa crew are all over the riots and President Trump announced that Antifa will be declared a terrorist group. “The violence instigated and carried out by Antifa and other similar groups in connection with the rioting is domestic terrorism and will be treated accordingly,” A.G. Barr said in a statement on Sunday following the president’s announcement. The media and the Democrats are very upset because they are on board with the violence and destruction and they are on board with the Antifa agenda. All sorts of “smart” people were clucking about how the president can’t make the terrorist declaration. “Terrorism is an inherently political label, easily abused and misused,” said ACLU National Security Project Director Hina Shamsi. Of course. Now do the KKK.

Derp state clown and former senior Justice Department official Mary McCord said “no current legal authority exists for designating domestic organizations as terrorist organizations. Any attempt at such a designation would raise significant First Amendment concerns.”

The purpose of this violence is to the break the “system” and because our economy was so devastated by the Coronavirus shut down, it’s a perfect time to further inflict damage with a view towards total destruction. Hatred of the “system” is why businesses, monuments and churches were defaced and vandalized and set on fire, they are symbols of the “system.” Take note: this is a war.

To take the heat off of the actual violent animals beating up innocent people and destroying their property, the accomplices are blaming the tried and true villains of RUSSIANS and white supremacists. Because many of Antifa are white people, social media celebrities, politicos and elected officials are pointing and saying “see white supremacists!” No. Very unlikely. Where’s the evidence? Instead we are seeing the same tactics used by Antifa we’ve seen but the media has ignored for years. The media et al., like to pretend that Antifa are really anti-fascists and support the “anti-fascist” attacks. But just because they call themselves that doesn’t mean that’s what they really are. Oh, by the way, you are a fascist so watch out.

Apparently, Twitter has suspended the Antifa account. Why? I think it was this:

So like I said: this is a war.

The president has not yet decided to take control of the National Guard. “We’re not going to federalize the Guard at this time. But, if necessary, we have further military assets that can be deployed,” Robert O’Brien told reporters at the White House. “We’ll do whatever the governors or mayors need to keep control of their cities.”

Stay safe out there. Let’s hope this mayhem ends soon.
