“We do not argue with those who disagree with us, we destroy them.”-Benito Mussolini
In the wake of the Capitol riots it only took a day for the lefts usual cry to begin again. And that cry has to do with Domestic Terrorism. Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois will reintroduce his Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act to “clamp down on right-wing groups.”
The Anti-Defamation leagues CEO says that, “[R]ight-wing extremism is a global terror threat, one that directly endangers our nation and jeopardizes our democracy. This is not an exaggeration. It is the embodiment of a clear and present danger.” As if that isn’t flirting with the magical enough, he goes on to say that “Trump’s presidency will end, but extremist groups and the broader movement they occupy will not just disappear. That is why it is absolutely crucial for the incoming Congress and Biden-Harris Administration to work together proactively, deliberately and swiftly to dismantle this domestic terror threat.”
I find it incredible that the left totally ignores the violent acts of the groups that it supports. ANTIFA and BLM have proven time and again that they are not peaceful protest groups, instead, they are as violent and extremist as the ones listed by these rabid left wing senators and the ADL. If you doubt me, do a google search and you will find articles talking about over 100 nights of rioting in Portland alone. That doesn’t include Seattle, NYC and unfortunately, the list goes on and on and on.
To say that one side has a more “noble” cause to violently protest is insanity. Violence can not be condoned by either side for any reason. You just can’t say that it is one side or the other, both sides are equally as guilty.
Unfortunately, the left’s violent extremism has largely been ignored by the MSM and the left in general. And it is this that is going to cause more unrest and it will be totally justified. The left has always had a preoccupation with shutting down any type of speech that does not agree with theirs. It is becoming apparent that the 1st Amendment truly only exists in America if you agree with the radical left otherwise you are labeled and subsequently canceled by the true fascists.
Here is the problem. If we allow this nonsense to happen, where will it end? The more progressive wing of the left has already made it clear that they wanted to make a list of everyone who supported Trump. They even said that they would use that list to make sure that they couldn’t find teaching positions or allow them to speak at colleges and universities.
How many election cycles will it take before the left is knocking on your door? How long will it take for the radical left to try and censor an innocent blog like mine? They have already censored the most powerful man in the world. Why would they stop with him?
So, before anyone decides to talk about Domestic Terrorism, they need to look in the mirror and be honest with themselves. I already know that the sycophants of ANTIFA and BLM will not be able to do this because they have been living in this wonderland and false narrative that blacks are targeted by the police every day for years. You know it and I know it. It just isn’t true. Even the federal statistics on crime don’t support your unicorn and fairy land tale.
But to not include these two groups in this bill is a travesty. They have worked together and caused more damage than any far-right group could ever think of doing. So, to bring this sad tale to an end, I’ll say it yet again. I am not in favor of using violence for any reason. But for the left to continue to ignore their own issues of violence and extremism is not only sick, it’s criminal.
It also shows the fear that the government has of these groups. Like I said, Silence and Cancel.
Our great country is indeed headed for some dark days. But these dark days will not be the result of the right. They will be forced upon us by the left, who will yield the power they have to silence any critics that don’t bow to the insanity of the left. As I pointed out a couple of days ago, the left is now is now the new Nazi party.
