How Not to be White

Ec90PqvXgAc2z16

The National Museum of African American History and Culture compiled a list of everything that creates a great society, labeled it as white and said these are things we need to avoid. The first item on the list is rugged individualism. Self-reliance and being in control of your environment are not traits that people should strive for. I guess somebody should tell the Chinese special forces that, who are trained to survive on their own and live off the land. Now that I think of it every military teaches that. The people who live in Alaska have that life. Most third world countries have that life.

The nuclear family made the list. We should not be surprised this is on here since it is one of the things under attack from BLM. Having two parents that take care of their children is somehow frowned upon even though children raised in these environments are more likely to succeed in life, finish college, and have better relationships in their life. Who would want that for their kids?

The scientific method is white. George Washington Carver didn’t get the BLM memo. The ability to think rationally and come to truths using science is a white construct. I guess we should see what kind of jets, cell phones, and medical care BLM comes up with using magic.

History, in the sense that our country’s history is based on western Europe with an emphasis on British history. I would hope so, that is how the country was started. There was a trade that took place when we left the empire. We decided to think for ourselves and that included freeing slaves later.

The protestant work ethic, that philosophy that got us to where we are today, I guess that is something we need to get rid of. I took this to mean that the people who wrote this want something for nothing, but that isn’t possible because somebody has to put in the work to provide the things people need. Not to mention that Asians has a reputation for working harder than the people with the protestant work ethic.

Respect authority, I guess this list is something that we should toss out since it was written by people who think they are the authority on this topic.

Future orientation, planning for the future is a bad thing. If this one is confusing how about the concept of time being a western construct? Making a schedule is a bad thing. Knowing when to plant crops is a purely white concept. Meeting people for business or pleasure at a predetermined time is a bad thing. Wearing a watch is a white thing, I guess those rappers will have to hand off those diamond and gold watches off to the next white guy they see.

Aesthetics, I have no idea how they came up with this section. Meat and potatoes, bland is best. This was on the list and I have to say this what is considered poor food in most cultures. Plus, potatoes didn’t exist in Europe until north America was discovered so its not even traditional western European food, but nice try. A woman’s beauty is based on blonde and thin, according to who? This completely discredits the taste of the individual. Men’s attractiveness is based on economic status power and intellect. This is true for most cultures. TLC even wrote a song called No Scrubs that expresses their distaste for guys that can’t get a job.

The concept of protecting property is only white. Having a house, car, or money that was earned is a white concept. Who knew?

Competition should be eliminated and participation trophies handed out for people who show up, or not, maybe showing up is too competitive?

I’m going to skip to the final item on the list, be polite. Being rude must be the new normal these people are looking for. Its not one that I look forward to and something I don’t put up with. If you want to guarantee personal injury to yourself this is a good way to go about it. Try not being polite and see how far it gets you.

This document is a list of everything that makes a polite, functioning society where people can get along. What surprises me most about this is the fact that the organization of protest, using free speech a right available because of the Bill of Rights, and using technology like the internet (science bitch) uses all white concepts I would have to assume this makes the protest themselves a white construct. Congratulations, by the simple act of organizing a protest you participated in white Eurocentric culture.

Why I Won’t Kneel

By the time this movement arrived in Kalamazoo I had been isolated at home for 2 months. All of my news was coming from my phone. Everyday was another total of deaths due to Corona Virus and then there were riots. I was expecting these but I thought they would come from food shortages, I’m still waiting for those by the way, and never thought that this would come from the death of a man while being arrested. I forgot it was an election year.

Protest had erupted across the country and everyday there was another march in a city and that night buildings burned, cars torched, and businesses looted. I’m not on Facebook and I don’t watch the local news, those channels are horrible with their content anyway, but more about that later. I had to learn from my neighbor, a text from a friend and my mom calling me, to stay away from downtown because there was chatter online about looting and riots planned for that night. It wasn’t until I looked up the local news on my phone that I learned about the protest that happened the day before. A march had started at Bronson park and moved down the mall and onto Kalamazoo Ave. when things became rowdy white vans pulled up delivering police in riot gear. The crowd chanted “fuck the police” while throwing water bottles and rocks at the police. The cops had done nothing but show up. A few minutes later the vans came back, the police piled into the vans and they drove away while protesters hit the vans and continued throwing items at them. I had to see this footage on news 8 because our local channel did not cover it. Instead, news 3 WWMT declared that it was a “peaceful protest” without incident.

I went upstairs and loaded my gun just in case. I saw the footage of people yelling “kill white people” and “kill the police” and from what I could see they meant it. The local Walmart had shut down. The people working at the courthouse were sent home early. A Meijer location closed their doors and barricaded the entrance with shopping carts. Crossroads mall had plow trucks parked at their entrances so that people could not drive up to the entrance. The city was on a different kind of lockdown.

That night on the news there was footage of people laying down on their stomachs before marching down the street for day two of their protest. Across the street in the background a Mexican family that had just opened their new restaurant a few weeks before was boarding up their windows and doors. They were the only ones to do so.

I slept that night with one eye open, waking up at the slightest sound and looking out the windows at all hours of the night. I heard nothing. Everything was quiet.

The next morning, I woke up at 6:30 with my two-month-old daughter. While I was feeding her downstairs my phone was loaded with video footage of downtown Kalamazoo, smashed and looted. There comes a time when you start to question everything you see on your phone or television. You aren’t sure what is real and what is made up. I had to see what had happened for myself.

I put my daughter in her car seat and went out the door just before 7am. We parked outside of the brewery that I used to work for and I started filming. Windows had already been boarded up. The cleanup had started at 430am. The first block wasn’t bad except for the dried spit on the windows of shops and the local MLive office. Then the real damage started.

The small window where the cigarettes were kept at the cigar shop was broken. The front door to Taco Bob’s, a local favorite, had been smashed. I was almost happy Bob didn’t have to see that happen, he had died a few weeks before all the chaos happened across the country. As I walked the damage was worse and worse. Gazelle sports had their windows smashed and items stolen. Several other shops had their windows busted out and their displays gone. My chest felt heavy as I walked through there. I didn’t recognize the city I had grown up in. what took twenty years to create had been destroyed in a night.

I went back to my car and decided to find other places that had not been covered on the news. Sure enough, on Kalamazoo Ave there was a whole series of stores with smashed windows. The first national bank had their drive through window shattered. A women’s clothing store had all of their windows shattered. A new café had a broken window. Jimmie John’s had not delivered their sandwich fast enough for one of the rioters. Their window was smashed as well. A new bank had their picture window decorated with a spiderweb pattern of destruction. The courthouse I once worked at had their own window on the ground floor busted out. The only thing I missed was the car lot at the beginning of the street with their merchandise vandalized in the lot.

By the end of the day all of downtown was boarded up and secured for what was to come. A local store owner sent me a link to video footage of the looting in progress. Everyone involved is on camera while they smash the window of Gazelles and start looting. As of today, not a single person has been arrested that was involved in the looting.

A week later my wife and I drove down the mall just to see what it looked like. The stores were still boarded up only now the city was allowing people to paint art on the boards in support of Black Lives Matter. As we drove down the mall I looked at my bank, one of the original buildings that formed downtown 150 years ago. The limestone framing the doorway had been painted over instead of the boards covering the windows. Gang signs and other tags littered the facades of the stores as we continued. Downtown was a free for all to do what you wanted as long as you were pissed off about something. I couldn’t see anymore.

The day before I would finally return to my own job a mural was painted in the street next to our building that read Black Lives Matter. It is in the turning lane and fills the length of the block. That was when I knew they had defeated the city. The enemy had won and they were given whatever they wanted. Local businesses had been terrorized. People stayed at home scared to go out not knowing who or what would come for them. Lively hoods were ruined. In the end they were allowed to tag their prize and the city even handed over the tools to do it. Kalamazoo had become BLM’s bitch.

I don’t like bullies. I don’t tend to back off when someone is being aggressive. If somebody tries to force me to do something, I don’t want to do odds are its not going to happen. Except for Frat parties gone wild on campus I have never seen the police use tear gas before. The last time downtown had that much destruction was the tornado that went through in 1980. The more I learn about BLM the more angry I become. In two months the organization has raised over 300 million dollars and nobody knows where it is going. There is no audit and since they are a 503c they are not required to report it. They answer to no one and no one is asking any questions. Meanwhile the country is in turmoil with riots and protest still happening. More statues and monuments are being destroyed. Politicians are no longer protecting the public instead giving in to a group of terrorists demands like defunding police departments and sending local crime rates to record levels. BLM has yet to comment on the 8-year-old girl that was killed in Atlanta by BLM members in their occupy zone or the 1 year old that was killed in Chicago over Father’s day weekend.

In 2019, 54 unarmed men were killed by police. Out of that number 9 were black. On Father’s Day weekend 104 people were shot in Chicago. Five black men were killed in CHAZ during the capital hill BLM occupation. There have been multiple shootings in Atlanta to the point they called in the national guard. The country is under siege and we are being occupied by an army of Marxist extremist who only have one goal, destroying the United States. Ilhan Omar stated yesterday that not only should the police be defunded but that the whole political and economic system needs to be “dismantled” as well. BLM has a lot of blood on their hands and it is the blood of young black men and children across the country that have died because of their actions and their demands. This isn’t a protest this is a revolution and one that the American people did not ask for.

I do not kneel, I do not bow, I do not give in to bullies. I hit them back. You do not cave in to bullies, they only end up wanting more. You make sure they leave realizing they should never try doing that again. You leave them bruised and broken. In this country you do not negotiate with terrorist. You hunt them down, shoot them in the head and dump them over the side of an aircraft carrier. Look to our past, things did not end well for those that tried this kind of thing before.

The Insanity of the left

 

There is an experiment taking place. One that everyone is a part of and the end result will appear at the end of the year. A free democracy is being tested and the rights that we enjoy are being pushed to the limit during an election year. The people who use free speech the most promote the limitation of free speech to anyone they declare are using hate speech. A minority group is demanding the defunding/ abolishment of the police departments across the country. Armed black men took to the street, with a police escort, demanding reparations from motorist that had to wait for the group to pass by. As of today, a Muslim congress woman stated that not only did we need to get rid of the police but we also needed to abolish our political and economic system. I am hoping that she was only elected to one term and we never have to hear her speak her non-sense ever again.

This has happened before, and like most insane movements, these people look back at history and say to themselves “They never got it right. This time it will be different.”  The communist revolutions of old killed over 100 million people during the last century and it is currently repeating itself in Venezuela as I write this. Even the mini experiments that we have seen in this country are turning out the same way. CHAZ lasted almost a month before the police were finally sent back in to do their job. Five people were killed and the last one was a 16-year-old kid who was shot at in a SUV with over 300 rounds put through the vehicle during a ten-minute time span. A 14-year-old survived. The kids were not armed.

BLM and our current justice system are engaging in a strange double standard that they don’t quite understand. In Indiana, a black man accompanied with a handful of friends went to a private party, on private property to protest the fourth of July. When he was attacked, he called the police, the same people he was protesting against. BLM has been using this tactic on several occasions to try to appear as a victim while being the instigator. A woman in Michigan pulled a pistol in self defense after a woman and her two teenage daughters followed her to her car and refused to let her leave, going as far as to jump behind the minivan while it was backing up. The woman and her husband were charged with assault and the husband lost his job. Meanwhile the police are no longer doing their jobs. Consider it a justice strike. As of July 7, 2020, not a single person has been arrested for the looting and riots that happened in my home town of Kalamazoo Michigan. The event was captured on cell phone video from a balcony above the downtown mall and yet nobody has been arrested. A few weeks later, a mural was painted in the street reading Black Lives Matter in full view of my place of employment. The same group that was responsible for the destruction my city saw was allowed to tag their work for everyone to see. The cowardly acts of our political leaders are adding to the carnage. At this moment autonomous zones are set up in New York city and Atlanta Georgia. CHAZ Atlanta is responsible for the death of five people so far including an 8-year-old girl. The governor finally called in the National Guard.

If it wasn’t for the fact that communism has never worked, I would say that we should let these psychos try their stupid ideas out for five minutes and see how well they do. This doesn’t need to happen since we already have their own autonomous zones to look at. People are dying at higher rates than with the alleged police brutality and when things do happen, they still call the police. I read today that the average college graduate is found to have a fifth-grade reading level and with the actions of these protesters we can see they have the maturity of a third grader. Our current national system is a mixture of Lord of the Flies, 1984, Animal Farm, and Fight Club. His name is Robert Paulson, get it right.

I find myself doing the most American thing I can think of, retreating. Not for the sake of saving my own ass but in order to fight another day. The city I have called my home all of my life has become a huge disappointment; it always has been but as of lately it has truly shown how weak and infantile it has become. There are two Michigans. The lower portion of the state where most of the population lives and north of Grand Rapids. On any political map you will see blue dots in Detroit, Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo. In the north is a sea of red and you won’t find any of the bullshit that the cities have to put up with. When Covid hit I kept telling myself that I should have bought that cabin in Cheboygan or in the U.P. and now I think it’s time to pack up and find a new place to call home. I know how the companies work in this town. They will cater to the biggest piece of shit on the planet for the sake of not being called racist and any white man is on the alter to be sacrificed to the lame ass god of anti-racism. I already walk on egg shells worrying that somehow some way I will offend someone and I will have to turn in my keys and ID and be escorted to the door. Let’s face it, the first amendment, with all of the fake news and alleged “peaceful” protest is dead. People can walk onto your property, threaten you, and you are not allowed to do anything about it. When your place of employment says that they want to allow people to have open discussions in a safe place at work, that doesn’t include your opinion. The media currently doesn’t cover the deaths caused by BLM instead twisting headlines with assumptions and false accusations. The country is in ruins and it is time to run for the hills. If you are from a small town move back there. If you live in the city, cash in that small house or condo and find a piece of land in the middle of nowhere. Unemployed college students and biracial Marxist baristas can’t afford the gas to drive into rural Nebraska to continue their march to equality. The cities depend on food. They need supplies. To have a piece of land that supports so much more than the family that lives on it is to have power. When the trucks stop, when the police no longer answer 911, when the power goes out and the water spots to flow, that will be the oh fuck moment when these whiney little shits realize they don’t know as much as they thought they did.

Voting Republican for the first time

 

It’s not hard to remember the first election I ever voted in. Most people who voted in 2000 can recall the law suits, confusion, and eventual decision by the supreme court, not the people, the put George W. Bush in office. Sometimes I look back and wonder what life might have looked like if Al Gore had become president and 9-11 still happened. Of course, there is no way to know.

I didn’t vote for Al or George that first time. I voted for Ralph Nader. I didn’t care for Gore’s policy on censorship and Bush I took to be a racist and idiot. Turns out Bush wasn’t a racist but was an idiot. As for Gore, I’m still waiting for the world to end. Since then I voted for every Democrat that had been on the ballet from John Kerry, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton (Barf), Andrew Yang, and Tulsi Gabbard. This election, the game that the Democrats have been playing this year with the country was the last straw.

For twenty years I followed a progressive path and while I hold some conservative ideas I learned mostly left on topics. After seeing where the democratic party has gone in a desperate attempt to remove a man from the oval office I can only say “they have lost their minds.” Four years ago, the democratic party was reluctant to go full crazy. This year they decided to stop taking their meds and dived head first into a swimming pool filled with shit.

In 2016, I remember when Black Lives Matter took the stage from Bernie Sanders and he was forced to say he supported their cause. They had acted like bullies and he folded under pressure when he shouldn’t have. To me, that was the end of the Bernie campaign. Later on, Hillary would invite BLM onto her stage in full support not knowing who these people are. This has become the new party policy. Bend the knee to anyone that has clout in the moment and hope everyone else follows. Welcome to 2020.

For the last year I have tried to make a change in the democratic party. Since I was a child, I had heard to fix the system from the inside to make the world a better place. I decided to put my money where my mouth was. I heard Andrew Yang on the Joe Rogan podcast and liked the majority of his policies. He wasn’t a carrier politician and if there was one person, I could see beating Donald Trump in 2020 it was him. although he ran on a universal basic income platform it was his other policies listed on his website that attracted me. Over several months I donated a good portion of money to his campaign and like Bernie in 2016 the Democratic party, pardon my language, fucked him out of the debates. Before I could blink Yang had dropped out and eventually supported Joe Biden as the Democratic candidate.

Then there was Tulsi. Here we have a woman who is everything that the Democratic party says they want as their presidential candidate. Young, a person of color, war vet, current military enlisted, and currently serving in congress. She wanted to invest in the country instead of foreign countries and end the wars that did us no good in the long run. In her first debate Tulsi decimated the party favorite at the time by calling out Kamala Harris for putting single moms in jail if their kids didn’t go to school and putting more black men in prison than any other Attorney General in California. Kamala continued to play the race card and it didn’t work. she was one of the first candidates to drop out of the race. So, we have badass, minority, congressional war vet taking out her opponents and the media refused to cover her. Tulsi was the only option on the primary ballet in the state of Michigan that was left besides Joe Biden. My vote went to Tulsi. Later, she would drop a slander law suit against Hillary Clinton which only told me how far the corruption in the party had gone. Everyone I put my faith in disappointed me in the end. Then came the riots.

Covid-19 came onto the radar at the beginning of the year and before we knew it people had it in Washington state and New York and it was spreading across the map. Lock downs were put into place and the people of Michigan had three months off from work. I followed the Governor’s orders and kept my risk of contracting the disease low. Protest erupted when the lockdown was extended and the media along with the Governor scolded the unpatriotic swine that descended onto the capital building in Lansing. I thought these people were idiots and were acting like children. Then Stupid had a new definition a month later.

George Floyd was allegedly killed by a police officer in Minneapolis and all hell broke loose. Black Lives Matter, an organization that had disappeared after 2017, re-emerged with protest and some new plays in their book for causing havoc across the country. In 2018 the book called White Fragility by Robin DeAngelo was released and it became the new bible for insecure white women everywhere. Antifa and a new army of poorly educated, indebted, college graduates took to the streets and started riots, looting, and started destroying public property across the country. When 104 black people were shot in Chicago on Father’s Day weekend BLM was nowhere to be found. Private businesses pooled money together as a bounty for the person responsible in the death of a one-year-old child. At the same time my Governor was marching in the streets with protesters when a month before she was degrading the previous protesters far doing the same thing. My county declared Racism a public health crisis, not Covid-19. CNN, MSNBC, BBC, and every left-wing newspaper refused to discuss the riots and looting that was taking place and always referred to these events as “Peaceful protest.” Nancy Pelosi, wore a scarf in DC from a tribe in Africa that sold slaves to European merchants, and took a knee in solidarity with BLM. This is the level of stupid that we are dealing with now. Companies left and right are siding with BLM without knowing who they really are. When people say they don’t support them they are fired from their jobs.

Today is the fourth of July and protest, riots, and looting are still going strong. While the Dems are busy kissing the ass of an organization, they know nothing about Trump has made sure that arrests are being made and many of these fools are looking at ten-year prison sentences. Something is finally being done.

I never cared for the Social Justice Warrior phenomenon and their cancel culture, taking due process out of the hands of the courts and legal system, instead choosing to have people fired and soil their name so they can’t make a living anymore. This isn’t the American way. This isn’t how I want to live. We have the first amendment in this country and at the moment the only group who thinks they are allowed to use it are a bunch of crazy leftists that haven’t moved out of their parent’s basement. Nowhere in the constitution does it say that people have the right NOT to be offended. Everyone has the right to say what they believe without the state stepping in but some people want to change that. Now they are going after the second amendment. “Ken and Karen” made the news for defending their home after an iron gate was destroyed and hundreds of armed protesters entered their property threatening to kill them, burn their house down, and kill their dog. Nobody could blame them if they went full John Wick on these assholes except for the media. The local DA is also trying to charge them for defending their property while not firing a single shot. Did I mention the DA is a Democrat?

When I look at the state of affairs across the country every city that became a war zone during these riots are run by Democrats. CHAZ was allowed to prosper in Seattle because of the Democratic Mayor. Chicago, currently being run by a Democrat, is seeing record numbers in shooting while it is a gun free zone. New York is folding under pressure and is cutting over a billion dollars from the NYPD budget only to see an immediate rise in crime. People in my home state were given tickets and fines for not following the stay at home order while the Governor was marching in the streets with protesters who were breaking the same laws, she signed in.

This year was the last straw. I tried. I really did. I supported the best options the democrats had running. I participated in the process. I followed the rules. Then this shit happens. These people with all of their phony policies and lack of spines are pushing the country into a civil war because they can’t handle the fact they are not in charge. As Will McAvoy once said on Newsroom “If Liberals are so fucking smart, how come they lose so goddamn always?” The Dems will lose again. The polls say Biden is winning but we haven’t seen the man in three months. Plus, these are the same polls that said Hillary was going to be in office. I’m not the only one out there. I’m not the only historically voting democrat that will be voting for Trump in November. There are a few other Democrats that I will be voting out of office at the same time. Their time of dividing the country through Identity politics are over. No more of this white shaming and anti-male bullshit. I’ tired of being called a piece of shit because of the color of my skin and having a big pair of balls between my legs. They can shove their policies up their ass from now on. Come November they will join the ranks of the unemployed they created this year and hopefully we can get back on track with improving the country instead of trying to turn it into Orwell’s Animal Farm. I can not be the only one out there that feels this way. We are the silent majority and I’m here to say “You’re fired!”

The Revolution is here

 

However, you may think of it this is not a good thing. What appears to have started out as a march against the death of George Floyd has turned into something completely different. The sad part is that the media and the people commenting on the recent activities around the country are still trying to figure out what is happening by last weeks standards. Statues in different cities have been taken down and many of them leave the host of what ever talk show you watch scratching their heads trying to explain the logic. There is none.

What we are witnessing is a cultural revolution. The ultimate goal of Tyler Durden in the book fight club. The desire to erase and rewrite history in your own image. The replacement of false gods with the ones you truly want to worship. This couldn’t be truer with the recent call to wipe white Jesus off of the map and replace him with nothing. The protest and riots we are seeing today is not a protest or a movement, it is the start of a social campaign to destroy the foundation of this country to create something else.

The media might have stopped covering the protest and riots because it tends to become boring until someone dies of course. As of today, antifa rioters fired paintballs and other projectiles at police in an effort to get them to fight back, with deadly force. After all, the media is the puppet of their BLM overlords and if they don’t paint the event in favor of the so called victims they will fall to the social pressure exerted by BLM. Maybe Don Lemon isn’t gay enough. Maybe Mr. Cuomo didn’t kiss his brother’s ass enough on TV. There is always a reason to cancel somebody and I for one am not putting up with it.

This is the type of life people have lived for decades in China. Always walking on egg shells hoping not to piss off the wrong person or saying the wrong thing. Knowing that at any time something could be found to have you unemployed or placed into a re-education center. This type of thing is already happening. Businesses are announcing mandatory anti-racism training. Companies are posting the percentage of minorities in their ranks showing how “Woke” they are. Of course, you don’t see the details. Were these people, as individuals, the most qualified for the position? Not only will we never know but they won’t either, always wondering if they got their job because of the work they put in or if it was to fit a quota. The disadvantage of the affirmative action law is the amount of self esteem lost wondering the answer to that question, not knowing if you have truly earned anything in your life or if it was just handed to you. The worst case scenario for these companies is hiring the employee that just doesn’t give a shit and think they are immune from everything because of it.

The party came to work for my mom last week. She works at a local hospital where her unit coordinator made everyone on the unit kneel for ten minutes in solidarity with George Floyd. This wasn’t about George Floyd. The movement never has been. This was about power. My mom is in her 60s and the ability to find a new job at her age along with a pandemic creates a prime environment for power hungry opportunist to come out of the woodwork and take advantage of an already shitty year. Once the ten minutes were over the Unit Coordinator pointed out the one nurse who did not participate and asked her why she didn’t join in. unlike the rest of the group this nurse was doing her job, charting for her patients so they could receive the care they needed.

Books are being burned in some places. Statues torn down. Movies are being taken off of the internet. Streets are renamed. Politicians are kneeling before false idols. The police are nowhere to be found. A woman in Virginia found herself and her daughter in the middle of a protest trapped in a car with people trying to open the doors and jumping on the hood. When she called 911 dispatch told her that they could not respond to the call. “Try to drive through but don’t hurt anyone.” The woman pleaded for help but they refused to send any police to the protest. This woman and her daughter were on their own. That is where we are at. The foundations of our society, the rights of the individual are crumbling from underneath our feet and the rights of groups and mobs are taking over. The justice system no longer functions, even on a basic level as we saw with the charges brought against two cops in Atlanta, Georgia. The function of the law has been to make the law fit the assumed crime. In both cases the police followed procedure but the state is following a mob to figure out how to convict these men to satisfy the mob.

“We are trained Marxist.”  –Patrisse Cullors, co-founder of Black Lives Matter.

“If this country doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it.” -Hawk Newsome, Chairman of Black Lives Matter of Greater New York.

“You cannot negotiate with people who say what’s mine is mine and what’s yours is negotiable.” -John F. Kennedy.

BLM is a left wing, fully funded, Marxist, terrorist group who only goal is to destroy western civilization in the United States. They have no plan for what comes afterwards. There is no goal line for this action. It never stops. Every statue will come down. All libraries will be burned. Court houses will crumble. Police will disappear. Property will belong to those who possess it. History will be written to fit a story. News will be filtered. Thoughts are controlled. People will be property. This is the future we are seeing. At the moment, if you don’t comply you will lose your job, lose your home, lose your family, and eventually they will start to come for your life. It is only a matter of time.

The revolution has happened before. Cuba, Argentina, Venezuela, China, Vietnam, and North Korea are a few examples to look into. People who live there know what to look for. They tear down the statues, try to erase history, and then they come for the people. In the end they will also devour their own, the good soldiers who fought their battles for them. Get rid of the people who are willing to kill for the cause. You don’t want them to find another to fight for. Both political parties are falling. Mitt Romney marched with protesters. Nancy Pelosi kneeled in the capital for them. Mayors and governors across the country try to appease them. This does not make them safe, they think they are becoming allies of the cause but they are simply being cowards who endanger everyone they represent. These traitors to the country will be the undoing of everything. This is how history will remember them, as cowards, and nothing ever ends well for cowards. They tend to have a sad fate in the end.

Defunding the police, a move towards a privatized police force

 

If you had asked me in January of this year what I thought would be happening by June, in my wildest dreams I never would have thought we would be having this discussion. As I write this, a police station in Seattle has been taken over by protesters and proclaimed a “sovereign land.” This isn’t the first time something like this has happened and whether you are on the left or the right in the past five years both sides of the political spectrum have tried this. Ammon Bundy, a cattle rancher who had a problem with the expansive powers of the federal government, along with a handful of anti-government sympathizers, took over the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in protest in 2016. The federal government didn’t storm the Refuge, instead choosing to sit back and wait for these people to leave for supplies. The other entertaining aspect of this standoff was the mailing of donations and supplies to the sanctuary by the US postal service. The internet wasn’t cut off, giving these rebels a live internet feed to display the dildos and gummy bear penises that had been mailed in response to their pleas for help. The standoff did not end well, one man shot dead after he exited the car he was riding and pulling a gun on federal officers. President Trump pardoned Ammon in 2018.

While this latest protest is happening in Seattle there is also the cry across the country to defund police departments or disband them all together. The scariest thing is that some public servants are actually considering this. Minneapolis voted to disband their police force saying they are beyond reform. The day after my home town of Kalamazoo talked about defunding the department of public safety, which consist of police and fire department, we had three shootings in a span of 24 hours. I have to wonder if any of these measures will actually happen but considering the language that is being used and how easily the politicians are quickly trying to appease these protesters, I would hate to admit this might actually happen. Looking ahead and considering what this would mean, I don’t think these people have full thought about what would happen to their own communities they claim to protect or care about.

We are looking at the start of the tribal state. Instead of having one police force that works for a city, county, or state entity and funded by taxes, there would have to be a local force paid by the community and accountable to whom? If you don’t pay your monthly dues to the local posse will they refuse to investigate the break in at your house? If someone from the northside of town commits a crime in the southside will that prevent the militia from apprehending the suspect because they don’t have jurisdiction? What about all the laws we already have on the books for law enforcement? Will those be thrown out as well. Instead of being read Miranda rights as you are arrested you might receive a baseball bat to the ribs because that’s how they do things on that side of town. But hey, at least they are policing their own, right?

When it comes to the question of protection an idea like this will only make the inequality of our society grow. A wealthy neighborhood with consistent six figure incomes would have little problem funding their own police force to protect their neighborhood. Meanwhile, across town the poor neighborhoods that already have a higher per capita crime problem would find themselves at the mercy of whoever stepped up to run things. In some cultures, this idea isn’t all bad. When the tsunami hit Fukushima in 2011 the local government did little to help the locals evacuate and find a place to stay. However, the Yakuza stepped in and supplied food and water to the survivors when no one else did. They don’t call them organized crime for nothing. This model doesn’t work everywhere and it rarely does overall. It is not uncommon to find areas of Africa under the control of warlords. In Somalia the government controls a few square blocks of the capital city while the rest of the country is controlled by warlords and pirates. The same goes for parts of southeast Asia and eastern Europe in the former soviet bloc.

During the Iraq war there came a time when people wanted our boys to come home and the federal government moved towards returning our troops home. In return they were replaced with private contractors who did not answer to the pentagon or the Iraqi government. They were completely independent and they made more money than the troops that were originally there. Most of these men were former military and went back to Iraq for a better paycheck and the ability to do the job they wanted to do before but were unable. This resulted in the Nisour Square Massacre in 2007 where 17 Iraqis were killed and 20 injured. According to the new Iraqi constitution that the US helped write for the Iraqis, contractors working in Iraq could not be tried in Iraqi courts or charged for any crimes committed in country. Later this was changed during the Obama Administration but the fact that these men were able to operate with full immunity was unthinkable.

Some will say that is where we are at now. Cops killing people without being held accountable. The officer who is accused of murdering George Floyd was charged. The three officers with him were also charged. The theory that this was a racist crime goes out the door with these other officers, one of them being Asian American and another of Hispanic descent. The fourth officer who helped with the arrest had been on the job for four days and allegedly asked questions during the arrest about turning Floyd over when he said he could not breathe. Does this one act mean that we completely tear apart a system that has worked relatively well over the years? We don’t complain when cops arrest serial killers or child molesters. When there is a mass shooting, we don’t call the local militia to come out and stop the gunman.

Instead of looking at erasing the police from our society why don’t we take a look at other communities that appear to have gotten things right. In Japan it is required for police officers to be members of Judo clubs. Constantly learning how to grapple and restrain people with little or no effort. I might also point out that the crime rate in Japan is almost nonexistent. That is why when things do happen there it is a shock to the society and it is usually perpetrated by someone that is not from there. In the 1990s there was a case of children being found dead in old refrigerators, boxes, and alleys. These kids had gone missing during their solo trips to school that is a Japanese tradition. The suspect was later caught and it was a man who had migrated to Japan from Portugal for work. who are you going to call when your child goes missing?

I don’t know what the future holds, if we will end up with privatized police forces or some bastardized version of community policing that will be impotent and unable to function. Emotions are high and when we make quick decisions on those emotions, they usually don’t have good results. As a nation we need a change. We are completely divided instead of thinking of ourselves as Americans. We are democrats or republicans, Christians or other, gay or straight, white or black, man or woman, but we never think of ourselves as Americans first. There was a time when people would say “stop trying to label me, man” but that has been replaced by every subculture we can think of. A person would rather say they are recovering catholic, straight, white male, with liberal tendencies except for some conservative ideas about fiscal responsibility. Or they say they are vegan and then it is best to just leave the conversation and save the next hour of your life from a lecture about animal cruelty. The point is, we are not one tribe. We don’t work towards making things better for everyone. Instead we talk about oppression and unfairness, and equality in a land where everyone has the chance to make a better life for themselves. In Kalamazoo this could not be truer. We have a program called the Promise, where any graduate from the public-school system is able to go to college for free. Most kids don’t take advantage of it and find themselves years later still working in $10 and hour jobs complaining about how unfair the world is. That is who is protesting these days. Going to school to make your life better is too hard, it is easier to complain and blame others for your lot in life. Being a victim doesn’t take any effort. Taking personal responsibility, that is hard.

Just like occupy wall street and the riots in Ferguson this will be a little footnote in history. People seem to think this is a huge historical life changing event but considering the lack of thought or the root of the cause itself this will be half assed like the lives of these ignorant people. A statue of Winston Churchill was vandalized during a protest with the word “Racist” spray painted across it. These people clearly have no idea who this man was. He stopped the spread of fascist around the world. He fought in the Great War and understood the idea of personal sacrifice for a greater cause. After the war he provided universal healthcare for all British citizens regardless of race or gender. Churchill was a great man but to these idiots he was nothing but a racist. Our sense of belonging is gone and no one seems to understand what came before to create the world we have now. People complain about police brutality during these protests, while forgetting that protesters were shot and killed by national guard troops at Ohio State during the Vietnam war. Things have gotten better. They have always gotten better through constant reform, new amendments to the constitution, and the turn over of laws that were morally wrong. Running out into the streets and crying about how you want change and you want it now is not how you get what you want, it is how you end up getting spanked by an adult.

I really hope nothing comes out of this. I hope this dies down and we have a trial and the system does its job, not the one that the protesters demand but the fair and speedy trial that finds these men guilty or not guilty. That is not up to us but the men and women of the jury. Catering to a mob is not justice, it’s a lynching. You would think that these protesters would know what that is.
