Why are Confederate monuments and flags being torn down from New Orleans, St. Louis, Gainesville, FL., and Charlottesville to Durham, N.C.?
President Trump pointed out that some of those in attendance in Charlotte were not aligned with hate groups and only protesting the removal of Confederate symbols; while others were very hateful and violent counter-protesters.
Trump told the truth that the battle was between Confederate Flag people sprinkled with Nazi flags and the Antifa that are Communists and anarchists! Antifa is as great a danger as the Nazis and maybe even more because they have the backing of the hard Left. Antifa is a far-left political movement of autonomous anti-fascist groups in the United States having roots back to Nazi-Germany. The Antifa term is loosely used with anti-racism, anti-sexism and anti-captialism.
The Left’s impulse to tear down Confederate history is like Mao’s cultural revolution. These tactics are well known in history. You start by tearing down statues and burning books, and eventually you go after people.
This is not about the Confederacy — this is not about the Civil War. This is about political power and it’s about a small group of people on the Left trying to exert outside influence on American politics by following in the footsteps of Mao, of the armed thugs in Weimar Republic, of the Taliban. These are tactics that are well known.
This has everything to do with identity politics. If you push identity politics, eventually you get around to identity politics for white people, which is a dangerous thing in a country that has a huge white majority. This is why the Left has been sowing these seeds of what’s been happening for a long time. And they are using disruptive movements such as Black Lives Matters with paid thugs to disrupt and cause a civil war. Fifty groups such as the Ford Foundation and George Soros funded groups like the Center for Popular Democracy privately fund BLM.
Such totalitarian impulses exhibited by both leftist protestors and white supremacists are totally un-American. America is not about ethnicity. It’s not about national origin. It’s about creed. There is no place in the American constitutional system for identity politics, left or right.
Pray for law and order to be restored in America. This is a battle for America’s constitutional and biblical values (2 Thessalonians 2:7). Pray for spiritual awakening and revival.
