Only a Non-Violent Patriot Movement Can Prevent Civil War

Only a Non-Violent Patriot Movement Can Prevent Civil War

On mainstream media sources and throughout social media you’ll see the same violent tale play out again and again. Typically the story is of Antifa, #BlackLivesMatter, LGBTQ & “Feminist” Groups vs. Stickmen, Proud Boys, Trump Supporters, and rarely, actual White Supremacists. I deliver this message to both sides, to all groups, and individuals: We must avoid becoming useful idiots.    Speech is a potent weapon in today’s world. The camera-phone can be mighty. When reporting on rallies and demonstrations across the country, the mainstream media loves to stoke the flames by consistently showing the worst in people. Social media highlights only the negative incidents as well since those attract the most views, clicks, and reactions. To counter this tendency we must strive to become… less entertaining. Proud? Yes. Patriotic? Certainly. A sense of calm should pervade our marches and our demonstrations so our message isn’t lost or overshadowed by negative behavior that only distracts people from our message. Discourse has been a part of our country since its inception. Exchanging and accepting the existence and validity of contrary points of view are imperative to our success.  However, when this disagreement becomes marred by emotion, tainted by hatred, that’s when we start to dehumanize those who disagree with us. That’s when we hear slogans like “bash the fasc” or “bopping Antifa punks.” It’s crucial that we take a step back and realize the ramifications of meeting violence with violence.  Ironically, the history many seek to erase is the best possible teacher here.

#DeConfederation: The NAACP & #BlackLivesMatter Seek to Tear Down History

#DeConfederation: The NAACP & #BlackLivesMatter Seek to Tear Down History

Following the death of Premier Josef Stalin in 1953, the Soviet Union embarked on a campaign of “DeStalinization” removing countless statues of the communist dictator. Following the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, the Russian Federation did an even more thorough job of removing most Soviet symbols. Erasing the past is a common theme among communists, socialists, fascists and now, American progressives. Despite the guns falling silent over a century and a half ago, today the Arizona Chapter of the NAACP valiantly defied the final vestiges of the Confederate States of America. After beginning in South Carolina, grabbing national headlines in Louisiana and now coming to Arizona, the process of “DeConfederation” has begun. According to the Smithsonian, Walter Williams, a man believed to be the final surviving Confederate soldier, died in 1958. With that said, to put it bluntly, Arizona State Representative Reginald Bolding Jr. and East Valley NAACP President Roy Tatem Jr. in cooperation with Pastor Reginald Walton of Black Lives Matter Phoenix are waging a PR war against the dead. Cloves Campbell, publisher of the Arizona Informant summarized the argument to remove the monuments in a press conference carried on Facebook live by The Phoenix New Times: “Sure it’s a piece of history but it’s one thing to memorialize something that’s wrong. And we can learn about history. You might as well put up a banner that memorializes the KKK. I mean, these are the same types of things we’re talking about. So let’s not hold up something that’s wrong, lets bring it down. We want to learn about it, but we also want to know about what’s right. And celebrate...
Trump Told NATO Members to Pay Up, And He’s Right

Trump Told NATO Members to Pay Up, And He’s Right

On May 25th in Brussels, President Donald Trump addressed his fellow heads of state leading the now Sixty-Eight year old North Atlantic Treaty Organization, an alliance forged in the wake of World War II to counter the common threat presented by the Soviet Union’s expansion into Eastern Europe following the devastating conflict which launched the Cold War. During his remarks, President Trump created international headlines and many very uncomfortable world leaders by stating: “The NATO of the future must include a great focus on terrorism and immigration, as well as threats from Russia and on NATO’s eastern and southern borders. These grave security concerns are the same reason that I have been very, very direct with Secretary Stoltenberg and members of the Alliance in saying that NATO Members must finally contribute their fair share and meet their financial obligations, for 23 of the 28 member nations are still not paying what they should be paying and what they are supposed to be paying for their defense. This is not fair to the people and tax payers of the United States.” Allow me to be as blunt as humanly possible: He is absolutely right. For the Sixty-Eight years of its existence, NATO has relied almost completely on the military might and economic brute force of the United States to act as a shield against the aggressions and predations of not only Russia, but also Iran after 1979, Iraq in 1991 & 2001, as well as global Islamic-Terrorist groups such as Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State up to today. A brief history lesson: For over half of a century the taxpayers of the United...
