No Lives Matter

By John Zmirak Published on June 25, 2020

We live in a puzzling time. White-led rioters who chant the trademark of a Marxist cult, Black Lives Matter, are tearing down statues of Abraham Lincoln. And Catholic missionaries. And Union soldiers who were active abolitionists. And monuments to women’s suffrage. And Spanish poets.

Leftists blew up the City/County Building (controlled by a Democrat governor and mayor) in Madison, Wisconsin. Law enforcement personnel were ordered to stand down and do nothing. So said multiple law enforcement/public safety sources confirmed by radio host Vicki McKenna.

And the outcome was predictable.

People are not thinking straight. You might be forgiven for engaging in some radical speculation as to what’s really going on.

Please Support The Stream: Equipping Christians to Think Clearly About the Political, Economic, and Moral Issues of Our Day.

Here are a few potential explanations, in escalating order of likelihood. Of course, aspects of more than one may be true at once.

1. Systemic Racism is Real.

Christians are finally waking up to their hypocrisy on this issue — led by the violent revolutionaries of Black Lives Matter and Antifa, and their allies at Planned Parenthood. I find this one unlikely for reasons I offered in the form of a rhyming couplet on Twitter:

2. The Lizard Men Have Abandoned Us

Shape-shifting alien Reptilian overlords have guided human affairs since we left the caves. But they got sick of being insulted by David Icke and his followers. So they’ve abandoned us, to see how we do on our own. They’re waiting for Icke to publicly beg for their return.

3. China’s Trying Regime Change

China is funneling money, perhaps via George Soros’s globalist organizations, to violent radicals. The Chinese Communist Party wants chaos in our streets to prevail till the election. Its strategic goals?

  • To elect its longtime crony, Beijing Joe Biden.
  • To give it a free hand in repressing Hong Kong.
  • To give it a free hand in military conflicts with India.

4. We Have to Pretend to Be Haiti

Rioters are attacking anything associate with white culture, no matter what it stands for. Abraham Lincoln and Ulysses S. Grant must be punished for the crime of Emancipating While White. We’re obliged to pretend that black slaves rose up and emancipated themselves, and ruled the South after that as a black republic, like Haiti. To do that, we’re going to keep trashing cities till each them looks like a piece of Haiti.

5. Both Parties Are Playing Chicken

The Democrats are in tight control of the rioters, and have given them carte blanche for certain targets, not others. They will stop short of obeying Shaun King and attacking churches to rip out white pictures of Jesus. The goal is to tempt President Trump into acting like the “fascist” the left pretends he is. To goad Trump into federalizing the National Guard, then blaming collateral casualties (kids from ricocheting bullets) on him. Then hang those dead civilians around his neck like anchors on election day. Conversely, Trump is holding back, like the Democrats playing “chicken,” with each convinced that the first party to fire on the rioters loses in November.

6. Hulk No Like Vertical Structures

The rioters are in the saddle, not the Democrats. They aren’t even targeting white culture but all culture. The mostly white, educated primitives leading these mobs hate all sculptures. In fact, they resent all vertical structures. They don’t know how to sculpt or build, and they hate anyone who does. They’re enraged by the existence of art or culture itself, except for propaganda emblems that support their nihilist cause.

As gnostics who live in a secondary reality of ideological fantasies, they view the real world God made with loathing. It has too many complexities and inequalities, too many diverging ideas and institutions that frustrate their will. So they want to smash it. They crave destruction for its own sake, like the demon-haunted villains of Dostoevsky’s The Possessed. They are thundering like Gadarene swine to the very bottom of their own slippery slope. And pulling the country after them.

My vote is 6).
