On May 28, 2020, the Third Precinct Station of the Minneapolis Police Department was sacked and the officers defending it forced to literally run for their lives. A crowd of hundreds if not thousands had methodically laid siege to the building employing a wide range of sophisticated tactics. These included torching surrounding buildings in order to keep the city’s fire department and police department stretched too thin to come to the rescue of the police officers trapped and in fear for their lives in the Third Precinct building. The tactics employed have been celebrated in anarchist and Marxist circles worldwide ever since.
Immediately following the capture of the Third Precinct the next element of the nationwide anarchist, revolutionary machine kicked into gear. The Minnesota Freedom Fund, one of a network of such funds across the United States, began to post bail on behalf of individuals arrested by police during the violence in Minneapolis.
Among the host of high profile spokespeople for the Freedom Fund? Kamala Harris.
Harris could have stood up and asked for help for the business owners who had just lost their livelihoods. She could have expressed support for the firefighters and police officers who had worked tirelessly and at great risk to themselves to save the city of Minneapolis from destruction. None of those things were apparently of concern to her. She was focused on making sure the criminals who had gutted a great city were back on the street as soon as possible.
Perhaps this should come as no surprise. Harris, the daughter of an Indian mother and a Jamaican father has been passing herself off as African-American since her days at Howard University. She jumpstarted her political career by carrying on a high profile affair with Californian kingmaker Willie Brown, trading her “affections” for political patronage jobs and a BMW. She characterizes herself increasingly as a minority who had to overcome adversity and institutional obstacles to achieve success. The truth is she is the daughter of two well educated and successful immigrants to this country and is now married to a wealthy white businessman.
In short, integrity and character have never been Ms. Harris’ strong suits.
Nonetheless, it would be a mistake to characterize Harris’s actions in supporting anarchists and Marxists as an aberration. This is the new normal in the Democratic Party. The mobs of black-clad radicals rampaging through our city centers are serving the purposes of an increasingly radicalized party that bears almost no resemblance to the organization that began as the advocate for the working man and woman.
For months now the leaders of this new radicalized Democratic Party have lied to the American people about what is happening in our streets. They and their allies in the media have refused to cover the extreme violence in places like Seattle and Portland. They have droned on about “peaceful protests” while police officers have been attacked, businesses systematically gutted and entire cities terrorized. From Joe Biden on down, there has been a total absence of any criticism of what amounts to widespread domestic terrorism.
There is a good reason for all of this. The anarchists and Marxists in our streets have become, in effect, the armed wing of the Democratic Party.
And, now, we are beginning to see a shift from tolerance and reticence on the part of Democratic stakeholders – to active cooperation with the insurrectionists and revolutionaries.
In Portland, the newly-elected District Attorney, Mike Schmidt, refuses to prosecute rioters attacking the federal courthouse and destroying the city. Before taking office, Schmidt sat down with his old “buddy” @AWKWORDrap, an Antifa militant involved in the violence in the city. The purpose of the talk, by Schmidt’s own admission, was to get advice from his “buddy” on how to do his job as chief prosecutor for the city.
@AWKWARDrap is part of a movement led by Angela Davis, which has as its goals the defunding of the police, the abolishment of the criminal justice system, and the elimination of all jails and prisons. Angela Davis is a communist and former member of the Black Panthers – a group implicated in the murder of dozens of police officers.
In Minnesota only days ago, a mob descended on the suburban home of the Minneapolis police union chief, Bob Kroll. John Thompson, the Democratic nominee for a seat in the state assembly in District 67A, led the crowd in verbal attacks on Kroll screaming obscenities in front of children and at one point exhorting the crowd to burn Hugo down, a reference to the small town where Kroll lives.
We have prided ourselves since the birth of this nation on the peaceful transfer of power and the rule of law. It has been what has separated us from the myriad failed democracies around the world. All that is in peril now.
Opponents of this President – blinded by hate and self-interest – have adopted a win at all costs attitude. For them, the ends justify the means, and all means will be employed. Our cities are burning, our populace terrorized and across this great nation the leaders of the Democratic Party encourage the chaos and apologize for the perpetrators.
Only one thing matters. Victory in November. And the enemies of this President will quite literally burn this country down to achieve it.
