There are lots of people using the word fascism who evidently don’t even know the meaning of it, interrupting public meetings and wreaking havoc, abusing their civil disobedience privileges by destroying property, causing bodily harm and intimidating others who have just as much right to demonstration and political opinion as they do.
They accuse the people who they abuse of being fascists when the shoe is actually on the other foot and they are the ones who practice fascism by silencing those with differing opinions.
In layman’s terms the word actually means that dissenting opinions will not be tolerated and it manifests itself usually in strong arm tactics, shouting down speakers and disrupting other citizens engaged in expressing their own opinions in a peaceful public process.
They loudly proclaim their right of assembly, sometimes in voices and with countenance that seem to be approaching mania, screaming about their first amendment rights while doing their best to deny the first amendment rights of those who think differently.
The situation is rapidly getting out of hand and dangerous. I saw a piece on an internet news service that stated conservatives in the San Francisco Bay area kept the location of their meetings locations a secret for fear of their safety.
I heard a woman, a college professor, standing on a street corner manically screaming that the police were protecting people like Hitler by shielding peaceful protestors of another political persuasion, when her and the bunch she was with were much more Hitler like because they wanted to suppress free speech that didn’t agree with them.
A lot of these people don’t even know what they are demonstrating against and, if asked, cannot give a coherent answer, or actually no answer at all past spewing four letter words and slogans they’ve been given, they are unable to be analytical about what it is they’re trying to disrupt and there is a very plausible opinion that many of them are being paid.
In my opinion, this situation will soon reach critical mass when radical demonstrators will run into an implacable pack of people who will respond in kind, a riot will ensue, heads will be busted, lawsuits filed and you can easily guess whose side of the melee the media will be on.
There are a lot of people in the heartland who are not going to stand by and watch some hyped up bunch of radicals set fire to his business or his car and will respond with superior force and very possibly superior numbers and some people will probably be badly injured.
Even with the media on your side, you cannot force your will on the majority of the population and you cannot quiet dissenting opinion and you cannot defy the law, destroying property and causing bodily harm for very long before you make the public mad enough to react and demand that it be controlled.
That could mean anything from the National Guard to vigilante groups who protect their neighborhoods with whatever force necessary and don’t play around when confronted with a dangerous situation.
Nobody (except for the violent protestors) wants to see this kind of escalation, but unless the rabble-rousing contingent of the protesters are curtailed something is going to happen.
The people of this country have been patient but this is not a permanent attitude, there’s way too much water pushing against the dam and it’s real close to bursting.
What do you think?
Pray for our troops, our police and the peace of Jerusalem.
God Bless America
