If you look around surprised at what is going on, you simply have never stopped and looked around before. The plain and simple truth is this is the hurricane we knew could happen but spent years with our head in the sands pretending that it wouldn’t.
For every action, there come secondary and tertiary effects. The discontent with police brutality has always been there, simmering just below the surface. The COVID pandemic has left thousands without a job and without pay, but with plenty of free time on their hands. The killing of Geroge Floyd provided a catalyst to take to the streets. Enter organizations like ANTIFA and the KKK to provide the “push” to light the fuse, coupled with a break in the weather, and anyone who served in Iraq or Afghanistan will tell you we’ve seen this before.
It’s killing season.
Young people with a bleak outlook on the future and a cause bigger than themselves to fight for are easily moved to movement, and many times that movement can turn violent. It is also easily preyed upon by parasites that care little for the actual cause. Again, we saw this extensively in the Middle East. Men, who were the very face of evil incarnate radicalized a religion and used it to justify the murder of innocents.
These riots are no different. These “professional” rioters come in from all across America (much like foreign fighters entered Iraq) to use this movement to further our divide. Please make no mistake about it, many of those who are looting, burning business to the ground, and destroying our national monuments are not the protesters.
They are radicals.
They are the ones who want to see us fall, who want to see us hate each other, and we are buying into it hook, line, and sinker.
They are winning, and it’s up to us to remove the blinders from our eyes and stop it.
