August 11th and 12th, Charlottesville, Virginia—The “Unite the Right” rally, a/k/a the “Charlottesville rally”. Just another rally, maybe? Presumably, the First Amendment of the Constitution explicitly provides for the ‘right of the people to peaceably assemble and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances’. Oh, but wait, one very crucial point in all this verbiage, is the key word “peaceably” - inclined or disposed to avoid strife or dissension; not argumentative or hostile. So…what does the First Amendment provide for? Does it provide for the right of angry mobs to remove monuments and memorials from public spaces? Or…does it provide for individuals to use violence, attack, and even kill each other just to prove their vantage point?
In Charlottesville, specifically, it was all about a group of white nationalists rallying to oppose the removal of the statue of Confederate American Civil War General Robert E. Lee. And, whichever faction you chose to side with, be it the leftist radicals out to destroy the monument or be it the white supremacists, white nationalists, neo Confederates, and neo-Nazi radical militias out to sojourn them, regardless, you would be, disdainfully wide of the mark, considering both offshoots in Charlottesville were egregiously awry. Matter of fact, the Charlottesville mayhem shows all but what is wrong with modern-day America—shows a decaying 21st century United States of America—a United States of America pervasively angry, spewing hate for each other like we have never seen before.
Charlottesville’s toll, one dead, 19 injured, five critical in street brawls, which ultimately led for Virginia’s governor Terry McAuliffe to call for a state of emergency due to police inability to control the situation—again, let me repeat, “due to police inability to control the situation”—should we call it a “chaotic” situation, maybe? Anarchy? Anarchism? Your call. An isolated incident? Far from it. Matter of fact, I should go as far as claiming that Charlottesville is, nowadays just—a part of our lives.
Are we becoming a violent and lawless society? I say we are, and… If you don’t think so, I say, think again. Just to refresh everyone’s memories, look at the following events:
So…where am I going with all this? Well, let’s just look at the bigger picture. As much as you may think I am moonstruck, I’ve always made it a habit to think out-of-the-box, especially when you are talking politics. To begin with, the fringe / fake media would want you to believe that all the violence is just an inherent, a very natural byproduct of partisan politics and peoples’ rights to “protest”, the First Amendment rights or whatever. I say our present-day violence goes well, well beyond what many would want us to believe. I say our violence, instead, is inherent in a deeply-rooted militant leftist / socialist movement, long-time in the makings—longer than anyone of us would care to acquiesce. A movement which in the year 2008 succeeded in electing a full-fledged Marxist as President of the mightiest nation on the planet; a movement that saw its hopes for perpetuity shattered on November 8th, 2016, albeit as seen by the unrelenting attacks on the new administration—a clear declaration of a “denial” syndrome now afflicting all in the evil crusade, once utterly convinced of their ultimate takeover.
To make my point, I must refer you to an excerpt of my book “The Beginning of the End”, in which I claim that: “At the forefront of any dissertation regarding Communism—the system - there is that contentious issue of class struggles or class warfare. To Marx and Engels, class struggles were socio-political pre-conditions, catalytically setting the stage for a Communist revolution. To Marx and Marxism, humanity had always been plagued by class controversies. Historically, mankind had endured perennial struggles between the have(s) and the have not(s); the bourgeoisie and the proletariat; the capitalists and the workers”.
About this quote, like the movies disclaimer: “Any resemblance to actual events or locales or persons… is entirely coincidental”. The moral to my story here today is rather straightforward if you will. I say the present day turmoil, social divide, racial tensions, struggles, hatred, violence, rallies; the willful yearning to abolish the history of the Republic by uprooting statues of past champions, once heralded as our nation’s heroes are all the intrinsic byproduct to one of the greatest upsets in political history, to wit, a nation of loyal Americans, who conjointly made up their minds on November 8th, 2016 to rid the nation of a political plague historically nurturing a hate-filled agenda, such as that which paved the way for most of the aforementioned incidents.
I say, we have not seen the end of it all. Bear in mind, we are not dealing here with partisan issues or a counterculture undertaking. We are dealing instead with a Radical Revolution, first set out to obliterate our values; our capitalism and our democracy. On November 8th, 2016, we, unexpectedly, trampled their hopes for imperishability and with it came an unhinged wave of denial ultimately turning into violent attacks towards the up-rooters, thus their relentless attacks to our new president and his administration; thus the violence; thus the Charlottesville rallies; thus their unremitting reluctance of “Making America Great Again”. May God save us and may God save America.
