Kenosha, Wisconsin is burning. Following the police shooting of a black man, rioting and violence has broken out across this small city.
Black Lives Matter and Antifa activists continue to tear the heart out of great cities like Portland. Portland is a “war zone.”
Nationwide the violence has also moved into suburban areas and residential neighborhoods. As shown in the Twitter video below, via @draganklaric, Black Lives Matter protesters too to the suburbs of Portland to shud down streets.
Much of the mass media, -which is ideologically aligned with the rioters and anarchists – continues to refer to the mobs as “protesters” and describe scenes of mass violence and destruction as “peaceful protests.” This is not an oversight. This is not a case of a difference in interpretation.
This is a deliberate effort to prevent the American people from understanding what is happening. This is an intentional tactic designed to keep the population as a whole quiet, compliant, and defenseless.
Until it is too late.
We are not experiencing a wave of social unrest generated by injustice and the abuse of police authority. We are watching an insurrection in progress, one which uses incidences of the police use of force as pretexts, but which has as its goal the destruction of the existing social, economic and political order in the United States. Don’t take my word for it – listen to them – they are telling us what they want.
The “abolition of the United States as we know it.”
The founders of Black Lives Matter (BLM) are avowed Marxists. They and their compatriots in groups like Antifa are also expressly Maoists, which means among other things that they believe in the deliberate use of ethnic divisions as mechanisms for achieving the Communist revolution they desire.
The Maoist theory of revolutionary war holds that there are three phases to the struggle for the establishment of a Communist state. In the first stage, the revolutionaries organize and consolidate in base areas. They establish a platform from which to launch follow on operations. In some sense, this phase of the revolution is already well underway and has been for many years. All across America Marxists have gained control of colleges, universities, mass media, and even the corporate boardrooms of “woke” corporations. The numbers of young, college-educated, white Americans participating in the ongoing destruction of our cities shows just how effective and far-reaching this penetration has been.
The second phase of the Maoist revolution involves the progressive expansion of the use of terror and the initiation of attacks on isolated “enemy” units. The goals in this phase are to obtain arms, acquire supplies, and gain political support. Symbols of “regime” authority like police stations and government facilities are typical targets for Maoists during this phase.
We are already well into the second phase of this revolution. When the Third Precinct building in Minneapolis was sacked in the early phases of this insurrection that was not a random action. It was a deliberate attack on the authority of the existing government. It is likewise no accident that much of the violence in Portland has been centered on the federal courthouse or that BLM and Antifa actions in recent weeks have expanded to attacks on the residences of mayors, chiefs of police and police union officials.
This will continue. It will expand. All levels of government at the local, state, and federal will be targeted. Officials will be intimidated. Government authority will be challenged and then replaced. Areas will begin to move under the control of the Maoists.
This process is already underway.
In Portland, Seattle, and other cities, mayors – intimidated by the power of the insurrectionists – have shifted to supporting them and turning against their own police forces. The Mayor of Portland has gone into the street and stood side by side with individuals attacking the federal building. The Mayor of New York City famously participated in painting a Black Lives Matter tribute banner on a city street weeks ago.
Below is video, via @my3monkees on Twitter, showing Ted Wheeler, the mayor of Portland standing with the rioters as they are trying to burn down the Federal building.
As the power of the insurrectionists grows they will expand the scope of their challenge to the authority of the existing governmental structure. As they are emboldened the level of violence they will employ will expand as well. We will see a shift from vandalism, burning, and beatings to the use of Molotov cocktails, firearms and car bombs.
And then, when we are well past the point where this movement could have been snuffed out easily, the Maoists will begin to challenge the federal government directly. In control – by this point of urban centers, National Guard armories, and fielding their own police forces – the revolutionaries will move to threaten the very existence of the republic.
This does not have to happen. The scope of this movement remains relatively confined. It can be crushed. The tide can be turned right now.
The first step in doing so, however, is to acknowledge what is happening. A revolution is underway. The first phase is largely complete. The next phase has already begun.
We need to stop it now.
