Enough! Otherwise It’ll Never End

America has been roiled by rioting for weeks, but what started as protests to voice outrage at the callous unjust killing of George Floyd by the Minneapolis Police was quickly hijacked by domestic terrorists, namely ANTIFA.  ANTIFA is an extremist Marxist group intent on fomenting civil war to destroy the United States of America.  Since Marxism is still rejected by most Americans, ANTIFA has chosen racism as their wedge issue to divide Americans and sow discord.  They side with Black Lives Matters which is also a Marxist group based on some bizarre black transgender centric credo.  And they are aided by anarchists solely seeking chaos, but Marxists understand that when anarchy is achieved it is short lived and it precipitates a power vacuum ripe for totalitarian forces to flood in.

    In short, America is under withering attack by domestic terrorists bent on overthrowing our Constitutional republic and installing a Marxist totalitarian regime.  Their initial goal in this election year is to cause enough turmoil to defeat President Trump’s reelection because he is the single greatest threat to their socialist designs, but according to former National Security Council staff member Rich Higgins: “Their Marxist ideology seeks not only to influence elections in the short term, but to destroy the use of elections as the determining factor in political legitimacy.”  We are witnessing a no kidding Marxist insurrection.

    The recent spate of toppling Confederate statutes is only the beginning.  They claim racism must be eradicated, but to ANTIFA and their assorted cohorts America itself is irredeemable, so our entire history must erased.  Like the Soviets and Taliban before them, they will not rest until every vestige of history and tradition they don’t like is removed.

    ANTIFA’s ire is ostensibly against racism, but they vandalized a monument to the 54th Massachusetts Regiment in Boston, the black Union regiment that fought heroically in the Civil War.  They also vandalized a statute of abolitionist, Matthias Baldwin, in Philadelphia just because he was an old white guy.  In Portland, ANTIFA toppled statues of Ulysses S. Grant, the commanding Union General, Francis Scott Key, the author of the Star Spangled Banner, and even a statue of George Washington.  And in Ohio, statue of Columbus was beheaded and dumped in a lake.  Wake up America!  ANTIFA hates you and is at war with you.

    Yes, this is war.  The riots are NOT spontaneous; they were planned months ago simply waiting on an opportunistic spark.  John Miller, deputy police commissioner for intelligence and counterterrorism, told NBC New York that the radicals’ operations included organized scouts, medical teams, and an arsenal of rocks, bottles and accelerants.  ANTIFA came from out of town to pre-stage cars with supplies and pallets of brinks.  They used encrypted apps to communicate; they infiltrated other protests to incite violence and then relocated to repeat and spread violence.  These were coordinated assaults.

    Thus far our elected leaders have been missing in action and corporations are rushing to prove they are not racist with all manner of concessions.  They are so scared of the “woke” mob, we only see appeasement of absurd demands from an irrational enemy.  Seattle’s incompetent mayor has ceded a portion of her downtown to lawlessness while she negotiates with terrorists as they terrorize her citizens stranded in the occupied zone.

    Enough!  It’s past time for mayors and governors to put down this insurrection and restore law and order.  The Federal government must investigate these groups; who is organizing this rebellion and most important who is funding this carnage?  Expose the celebrities and elitists providing money to bail out these thugs.  ANTIFA must be broken and jailed; they are the enemies of all Americans.

    The first task is to stop these attacks and ceaseless violence, but then we must eradicate the roots of this Marxist nonsense by cleaning out the radicals in our universities indoctrinating our children in America hating Marxist orthodoxy.  We must stop using our hard earned tax money to fund our demise at over rated ridiculously expensive halls of supposed higher education that have devolved into communist cesspools.

    Sadly, we cannot wait on our elected leaders, nor can we rely on them – they are largely indecisive and weak.  We the people can remain silent no longer.  The silent majority must make their voices heard.  Americans must reaffirm our love and devotion to this great country and firmly declare our support for law enforcement.  The adults must end this temper tantrum.   America is still the most just, equitable, and free nation on earth; remind your children that generations of Americans have fought and died for liberty for all.

    We cannot do this alone, so Americans must rise up by falling on our knees and praying to God to deliver us.

    “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”  2 Chronicles 7:14

  1. I believe Mr. Riehm has the correct thoughts on our current situation. Taking America apart piece by piece as State, Local and Federal governments stand down. We are about to lose our freedom as well as our history.

    1. Randall, Thank you for reading my column and taking time to comment. I agree. We are facing a vicious existential threat; we must fight back. Thanks. Pete
