Interesting that the BLM mob supported by Democrats wants to destroy the history of the greatest country that God has created on this planet. Yet the historical group that should be deconstructed is the very party that promoted slavery, supported Jim Crow laws and fought against the civil rights movement — the Democrat party. If we are going to shred our history then why should the Democrat party slink away unscathed?
This brainless move to remove Confederate statues, presidential statues, etc., in the name of BLM, founded by self-professed Marxists and based on a lie [“hands up don’t shoot”], really wants to destroy the very foundation of America and create anarchy. In my opinion the group is godless.
For any Democrats left in Winchester who can assess facts: Why is most of the mayhem in cities controlled by your mayors? If BLM is really about saving black lives, then why isn’t the staggering death toll in Chicago in June, mostly black on black murder, on the front pages of newspapers every day? Why does the federal government promote the dissolution of families especially in the black community with 70% of black children born today to single mothers? Why is the NYC murder rate up 21% and shootings up 46% in 2020, yet the Democrat mayor DeBlasio just cut the NYPD budget by $1 billion? Why does your party want to defund police all over the country? Guess where a lot of people will not want to visit with their families? Why is it okay to carry a BLM sign and then bunch up with protesters when the rest of us are told to social distance and stay at home?
How will removing historical monuments or changing street names [Jubal Early Drive] help a single black person? Will the ensuing urban anarchy help them? It won’t because you have elected a lot of godless leaders who are only interested in power and money. Do you think our real enemies, the Chinese and Russians, are happy with all the unrest and are they perhaps helping to fund it?
Where are church leaders during this chaos? If I am guilty of some type of hidden racism then how about granting me and other Americans who never owned any slaves forgiveness like Jesus Christ talked about in the Bible. And too many white liberals are so busy clapping themselves on the back because they are “woke” that they fail to look in the mirror and see the huge plank sticking out of their own eye!
The mainstream media is the true villain here, because if they reported the facts instead of their own Democrat opinions then a lot of “useful idiots” wouldn’t be hanging on statues trying to pull them down into the dustbin of hell.
And why are most Republican leaders silent on all of this?
