Months ago, the leftist riots in our streets abruptly stopped. Organizations that we are told do not really exist somehow suddenly commanded their followers to sit down and shut up. The backlash against the rioting and violence was threatening to derail Joe Biden’s chances of being installed as President. Streets that had been filled with mobs smashing windows and burning businesses went deathly quiet.
That was then. This is now. Joe is about to sit down in the Oval Office. There is no need for pretense anymore. The riots can begin anew and the agenda, a revolutionary remake of America on Marxist lines announced clearly.
Over the weekend, Antifa made an appearance in San Diego. One of them held a sign saying that Ashli Babbitt deserved to die. Babbitt was the unarmed protester shot in the neck and killed by a Capitol Police officer during the January 6th disturbances at the Capitol Building. Antifa members attacked and pepper sprayed pro-Trump counter-protesters.
Yesterday Antifa militants wearing body armor and carrying shields marched through the streets of Manhattan yelling slogans and proclaiming “Whose mother-fucking streets? Our mother-fucking streets.” For good measure they attacked a female journalist whose crew had the audacity to film them.
A few days ago, Antifa members in the hundreds swarmed the streets of Tigard, Oregon a suburb of Portland. They attempted to break into the local police department and then when they were repulsed rioted and vandalized nearby businesses. The graffiti spray-painted on the walls of buildings in Tigard included a number of anti-Semitic sayings. This was the 4th Antifa riot in the Portland-area since the new year.
This is only the beginning. Antifa is organizing right now for an “action” in Eugene, Oregon on January 12th. Many, many more will follow.
The Freedom Road Socialist Organization, one of the key organizations behind the violence in our streets, has stated its position clearly.
“Freedom Road Socialist Organization has been helping to organize and build the movement against Trump since day one. We helped to lead the mass march on his nomination at the Republican National Convention in 2016, and we have been helping to spearhead opposition to his agenda every step of the way. Trump should be removed from power. Now…. The U.S. empire is eroding, and monopoly capitalism is a sick and dying system, and its failed political representatives were front and center in Washington D.C. today. It is imperative that all of us who yearn for better future act. We need to stay in the streets and fight for an agenda that represents the interests of the people. The road ahead will be a difficult one, but the future is bright!”
Many in America assumed that the disturbances in our streets were behind us. They believed that these riots were tied directly to the election and would end for good once we had voted. That was never true. It is not a reflection of reality.
The people who gutted our cities for months were never about simply replacing Donald Trump. They are Marxists and revolutionaries. They do not want to reform America or improve it. They want to destroy the republic and replace it with something fundamentally different.
The election of Joe Biden has not changed any of that. Joe likely is primarily focused on continuing to line his pockets, enrich his friends and maintain the Deep State status quo. Antifa, Black Lives Matter and the other radical organizations working overtime to end America have very different ideas. They are back. They are in the streets.
And, they are going to stay there.
