The Left’s Favorite Rioters, Black Lives Matter, Back Hamas’ Slaughter. Are We Next?
I’m sorry for this column. Really, I am. I feel like that Cockney in shabby clothes who has to barge into the formal dining room on board the HMS Titanic and ruin everyone’s meal. “Excuse me, guv’nor. It appears that we’ve sprung a leak. You see that iceberg out the window … ?”
But somebody has to tell you. Things in America are going to get a great deal worse before they get better. If indeed they do. We’ll be subjected to violence and tyranny, and we’re going to live a lot more as Israelis do for a bitter period of time that our descendants will read about and shudder.
I’d have to write a book, or maybe several, to explain just how we got here. But suffice it to say that when we faced the threat of a committed, America-hating Marxist becoming president of the United States, what we sent up against him was … the compromised, half-hearted Establishment hand puppet John McCain. Instead of exposing Obama’s long-standing ties to radical, violent revolutionaries committed to dismantling our way of life, McCain thought his job was to be a good Washington General, and lose graciously to the Globetrotters. That’s why the Democrats loved him so much, and all turned up to grin at his funeral.
The Deep State Still Works for Obama
Once in power, Obama took the grossly unconstitutional powers which George W. Bush had gained through the Patriot Act, and used them to politicize the Deep State and turn it into a political secret police. That same Deep State undermined and negated the choice of the people in 2016 with fake “collusion” scandals and a phony impeachment, and today it serves Joe Biden by classifying the half of our country’s citizens who support Donald Trump as dangerous extremists.
As we process the monstrous scale and savagery of the attack on Israeli civilians, we shouldn’t really be thinking about foreign policy. Israel must take its vengeance, and I hope that its response to this Pearl Harbor launched by Hamas and Iran mirrors what the U.S. did to Japan. But that’s Israel’s business, and if its leaders are smart, they won’t even consult with America’s leaders before they take action. Because the people in charge over here aren’t on their side. And they aren’t on ours.
No, we should be thinking about what we will do when the same kind of people with the same evil ideas launch attacks like that one against us.
Not if. When.
Black Lives Matter and Hamas Are Indistinguishable
I don’t just mean Muslims, though they’re the most likely foot soldiers who will do the dirty work. No, I mean vicious, anti-Western radicals of every creed and color, some of them pasty-white Antifa adherents now living in their parents’ Martha’s Vineyard basements.
The picture couldn’t be starker. As Al Perrotta noted in The Brew, the Marxist group Black Lives Matter which launched a low-level civil war in a dozen American cities has endorsed the Hamas attack.

This is the same group that Kamala Harris praised and bailed out of jail. That Michelle Obama wielded as a threat when she warned voters during the Democratic National Convention that the riots could get worse, and would, unless Joe Biden won:
If you take one thing from my words tonight, it is this: if you think things cannot possibly get worse, trust me, they can; and they will if we don’t make a change in this election. If we have any hope of ending this chaos, we have got to vote for Joe Biden like our lives depend on it.
Will Democrats denounce BLM now? Will the timid, infighting, Ukraine-fixated leaders of our hapless GOP even demand it? The question answers itself.
Political Militias Like the Nazi Brownshirts, Aimed at Us
There was no good reason for the George Floyd riots. They weren’t in any sense a spontaneous or real response to “racism” or “institutional violence.” Remember that the police officers who killed George Floyd were immediately suspended, prosecuted, and convicted. The System worked. But the radicals who want to destroy our System, to trash the free republic based on the Christian view of the person our founders created, didn’t care about George Floyd. No more than they care about black people in crime-ravaged cities, whom they cheerfully neglect, disarm, and abort by the millions.
Nor do the Muslim terror masters care about the lives of Arabs in Gaza. The goal of both extremist factions is “decolonization,” which is fancy, pseudo-academic jargon for “Kill Whitey!” Post-Colonial Theory was Obama’s special focus in college, FYI.
The 2020 riots got turned on and off like spigot, to suit the electoral needs of the Democratic Party. Once the riots had created the appearance of a nation spun out of control, to harm Trump’s image, and terrorized conservatives into hiding in their homes, they were called off like t-ball game on a rainy day. They had served their purpose. Almost none of the arsonists, robbers, killers, or radical thugs who’d seized entire neighborhoods in cities like Seattle were ever prosecuted. Nobody looked into who was paying for hotel suites for Antifa radicals to inhabit in one city after another.
But citizens who resisted, such as Kyle Rittenhouse and Jake Gardner, were prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Anarcho-Tyranny was openly accepted as the political tactic of the left: Anarchy for me, tyranny for thee.
Now We Know Why Biden Opened the Border
Have you been wondering why the Biden administration left our southern border unguarded, admitting some 8 million people whose identity, criminal records, and political views we know nothing about? It wasn’t politically popular. Those people can’t vote (yet). What exactly did the left gain by flooding our cities with foreigners, including tens of thousands from Middle Eastern countries?
From BLM’s endorsement of Hamas we have our answer. The left is counting on a certain percentage of those immigrants to serve as its foot soldiers in the next wave of riots, when it suits those funding and controlling BLM and Antifa to terrorize us again. Instead of relying on urban minorities unwise enough to demand cuts in police for their own communities, now the radical left will have a vast reserve of disgruntled, alienated foreigners — many of them young Muslim males committed to jihad.
If Democrats refuse to denounce Black Lives Matter for its endorsement of Hamas’ slaughter, you’ll know that I’m right. As always, I hope, even pray, that I am wrong. Alas, I rarely am.
UPDATE: Some in the Black Lives Matter organization are trying to disassociate themselves from the unduly candid Chicago member who posted the pro-Hamas meme. In a post I saw recopied on Facebook, which DOESN’T appear on BLM’s official Twitter account, some person said some things. Is the post below authentic or not? Spin control or sincere? All we really need to know is that “trained Marxist” (her words) founder of BLM Patrice Cullors was calling for the destruction of Israel (Hamas’ objective) back in 2015.
