Marxist Democrats are Convinced That This is Their Moment

They’re coming for your churches… – As we have repeatedly pointed out, Marxist movements are always anti-Christian and anti-Jewish endeavors.  The current Marxist movement being mounted in America today by the Soros-funded Antifa/Black Lives Matter/Democrat Party alliance is also allied with Islam, which only makes it even more focused on its fervor to destroy other major religious symbols and institutions.

Last weekend, this anti-religious fervor resulted in the highly-suspicious burning of three Christian churches across the country. That campaign has continued this week with the desecration of Catholic symbols in various cities in the U.S. and Canada.

From a report by the Daily Caller:

A Catholic church in New Haven, Connecticut, has reported vandalism as attacks on churches continue throughout the U.S.

Pastor John Paul Walker of St. Mary’s Parish, which consists of both St. Mary’s Catholic Church and St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, announced in a Thursday Facebook post that St. Joseph’s Church was vandalized sometime between 9 p.m. Wednesday and 6 a.m. Thursday.

The Archdiocese of Hartford also shared a Facebook post confirming that “a person or group of persons had painted anarchist and satanic symbols on the doors of St. Joseph Church in New Haven.”(RELATED: Statue Of Jesus Vandalized At Catholic Church In Canada)

“This follows an apparent trend of desecrating Catholic spaces throughout the nation, as evidenced by incidents in Chattanooga, Queens, Boston, Sacramento, and Ocala,” the pastor wrote on Facebook. “The underlying motive of these sacrilegious attacks is clear: to intimidate and instill fear in the hearts of those who worship Christ.”

News of the vandalism comes after Fr. Wilbert Chin Jon of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Calgary confirmed to the Daily Caller Thursday that vandals spray painted and used marker or chalk to deface a statue of the Sacred Heart of Jesus at Sacred Heart Church in Calgary, Alberta on Tuesday around 1:30 a.m.

The efforts by Democrat governors like Gavin Newsom, Phil Murphy and Gretchen Whitmer to continue their illegal discrimination against religious freedom only encourages this kind of activity by marginalizing Christians and Jews, just as Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong did during the 20th century. The timid response by leaders of those faiths seen thus far only encourages the thugs to double down.

At some point, America’s Christians and Jews will either have to engage in massive civil disobedience or this highly organized and coordinated campaign to marginalize them will only continue to grow.

The same is likely true for the rest of the law-abiding, civilized population as well. It is becoming increasingly obvious that the Marxist Democrats believe this year is their moment to truly transform the country permanently. Everything we are being subjected to by these Democrat governors and mayors related to COVID-19 is all about population control, the destruction of free enterprise, the destruction of wealth, the destruction of real learning in our society, the destruction of social norms and the subjugation of disfavored parts of the population.

Sadly, thanks to the constant peddling of panic porn by the corrupt news media, more and more Republican governors and Mayors are helping them along. Whether they do so knowingly or unwittingly doesn’t matter: Every new lockdown order, every new shutting down of specific classes of businesses, every new limitation on the number of people who can attend church or Synagogue on the Sabbath, every new ordered destruction of thousands of jobs pushes our nation closer and closer to the critical mass needed to elect a new wave of Marxist Democrat true believers with the same mindset of AOC and Ilhan Omar into office.

Every closing of a school and every pretense that “distance learning” can somehow be equally effective as attendance in a classroom and collaboration with friends and fellow students also aids the Marxist cause. A crucial goal of this “revolution” is to destroy any and all sense of community among the people. It is far more easy to control a massive population of frightened and isolated subjects than a community of men and women dedicated to a common cause.

As flawed as our public schools are, that sense of community first develops among the children as they go about learning together, playing sports together, joining clubs together and marching in bands and singing in choirs together. This is why pretty much every other free nation on the face of the earth is moving rapidly to reopening their schools this fall.

The almost rabid focus by the Democrats and their toadies in the corrupt news media on shutting our schools down in the face of all available science arrayed in favor of opening them tells you all you need to know on this subject. Remember: These are the very same Democrats/corrupt journalists who screamed to high heaven when President Trump cancelled U.S. participation in the fraudulent money grab that is the Paris Climate Accord. They told us the world would end when Trump pulled us out of another international consensus – the Iran deal.

We have a global consensus now – backed by all available science and data – that reopening the schools is the thing to do, and now these exact same people contend that America should be alone and isolated and ignore the science on this specific subject.

Think logically about this. There is only one possible reason why they are doing this.

At some point, if these evil Marxists do not relent, freedom loving Americans will either be forced to engage in massive civil disobedience or see our freedoms perish forever. That is the path the Marxist Democrats and their corrupt media toadies are taking us down.

That is all

Kaepernick & Co.: The difference between civil disobedience and virtue signaling

Living in a free country means that Kaepernick and his imitators have the right to take a knee when they hear The Star Spangled Banner. Having a right, though, doesn’t mean that you are right.

When it comes to Kaepernick & Friends, those people who feel offended by their disrespectful gesture are right to feel that way: There’s nothing noble about virtue signaling, which is all that these highly paid athletes are doing. It’s a meaningless, painless activity that simply puffs up their profile in the drive-by media.

Things would be different, however, if they engaged in true acts of civil disobedience. Doing that might earn them respect even from those who disagree with them.

Back in the day, civil disobedience used to mean something very specific. Although long a recognized part of Anglo-Saxon and English culture (mostly through jury nullification), it was Henry David Thoreau, in the mid-19th Century, who best articulated the doctrine we now recognize. Thoreau objected to a poll tax because he felt the money was being improperly spent to support slavery and the war with Mexico. Rather than paying the tax, he took a principled stand, refused to pay the tax, and went to prison.

As it happened, Thoreau’s friends quickly bailed him out, so he did not have much time to glory in his martyrdom. Nevertheless, this single night in jail inspired Thoreau to write the definitive essay about a citizen’s obligation to strike out against unjust laws and practices — and to demonstrate the law’s invalidity through each citizen’s personal martyrdom. Significantly, Thoreau felt that such a principled stand gained weight from an attendant sacrifice, which is usually imprisonment:

Under a government which imprisons unjustly, the true place for a just man is also a prison. The proper place today, the only place which Massachusetts has provided for her freer and less despondent spirits, is in her prisons, to be put out and locked out of the State by her own act, as they have already put themselves out by their principles. It is there that the fugitive slave, and the Mexican prisoner on parole, and the Indian come to plead the wrongs of his race should find them; on that separate but more free and honorable ground, where the State places those who are not with her, but against her–the only house in a slave State in which a free man can abide with honor.

Part of taking a principled stand means a willingness to pay the price. Martin Luther King was willing to pay the price, as was Mohandas Gandhi. Rosa Parks, who knew she risked imprisonment when she refused to move to the back of the bus, was willing to pay the price. Nelson Mandela surely paid the price and then showed tremendous grace when he had in his hands the power to get revenge . . . but didn’t.

How things have changed in America. If you’re a Leftist, you get to break the law or with community norms . . . and receive only loud applause. I first realized that true, sacrificial civil disobedience is a dead letter for Lefties in February 2004, when San Francisco’s then-mayor, Gavin Newsom, suddenly announced that he was going to ignore California’s laws against same-sex marriage, and have the City issue marriage licenses to all gay couples desiring them. The Press oooh’ed and aaah’ed about his bravery, and gave him a platform he used to leverage himself to California’s Lieutenant Governorship and, he hopes, one day sees him seated in the governor’s office itself (helped by his current campaign to destroy the Second Amendment).
