Changing hearts and minds…. through violence.

August 16, 2017

…in 1967 I returned home from a tour of duty with the army in the far east. For some reason I do not remember why I went into Philadelphia’s center city, in uniform, but I ended up coming face to face with a massive anti-war protest. Like thousands of other servicemen and women in uniform I was the target of many unpleasant comments but during the hours that I walked through the downtown area I never encountered any violence. So I sit here and wonder why today many demonstrations end up with the violence we saw in Charlottesville.

USA Today 8/15/2017 – “President Trump’s argument Tuesday that left wing groups were just as violent as the white supremacists who staged a demonstration in Charlottesville set off a firestorm,” and I have to ask why?

Yes the President has openly changed the direction of his condemnation three times since the violence and death that occurred at a protest demonstration in Charlottesville on Saturday, but like his first remark what he said today, “I think there is blame on both sides, you had a group on one side that was bad. You had a group on the other side that was also very violent. Nobody wants to say that. I’ll say it right now,” is closer to the truth.

So why does his condemnation of what happened in Charlottesville have the people of this nation so upset? Could it be once again the fact that people do believe in free speech as long as it doesn’t offend them? Could it also be that because he did not single out the white supremacists as the only cause for the violence, like former President Obama did when he ignored the fact that a part of the city of Baltimore was destroyed by people upset over the killing of a 25 year old in police custody.

Oh hell…. I tired of tiptoeing through this politically correct minefield of crap, the Klan and their supporters should be arrested and sent to their own little island of hate filled idiots where they can live in ignorant bliss. However I also want to state that there was violence on both sides with the alt-left combination of black lives matter and the antifa group that from what I have read and observed in news videos are far from blameless. So maybe they should, if they are so unhappy with our society, also be given an island where they can live without the threat of police brutality, and where they do not have to worry about as they have stated… kill any police or whites.

Some after reading this will believe I am a racist
I am not

I just think we should (all) live our lives
bound by the same laws
where you are free to say and think whatever you want
just do not try and force your views on me.

    I fear that you have taken the bait — hook, line, sinker. These alt-left // alt-right “groups” are paid by the same globalist NWO elites to make mayhem. They could not defeat Trump on multiple levels, so now they have created a right wing group “fighting the same created left wing group aka BLM, SJW types. A totally contrived kabuki theater to rile up the bases, and create violent mayhem to 1) advance cultural genocide and 2) motivate the progressive base of blacks, young, globalists, marxists, and progressives to vote in the midterms against the few remaining non-RINO’s left in Congress. Draining the swamp is difficult when there is only a few Americans among a globalist swamp-pit of evilness, intent on nation-state destruction.

    BTW, This is no different than the paid mercenaries called Isis and what they did in the ME. Pray for truth and it will be revealed to you.

    These so-called freedoms that we’re all, “guaranteed” under the constitutional are conditional, and the condition here is simply, that so long as I don’t feel offended by what you’re saying, you can keep on saying whatever it is you’re saying, but the moment I feel the slightest offense, then, i have the right, to bring out my GUNS, and open fire, and that, is what these freedoms, “guaranteed” by the U.S. Constitution have in store for us, plus, the leader of the country is a sort of a white supremacist himself, which doesn’t help out the situation either, but that’s just my opinion…

    Good and bad. Yes, violence it a very real process that at times needs to be resorted to. It can bring about change for the better. It is akin to war. No one likes it or wants it but sometimes war is a necessary to over turn evil.
    I think this argument can be used here. Violence was used to overturn EVIL. PURE EVIL and people filled with HATRED who are set on destroying civil liberties and peoples God given right to live without fear of others hatred towards them do to color.
    Pete, I think in this case Trump has shown his ” inability” to perceive truth. For him to stand up and and place blame on everyone is wrong. Take the next step forward. Who is the US to take a stand against North Korea. Again Violence with Violence. Their leader is a tyrant, killer, oppressor, etc etc. The exact same can be said about the right wing racist groups. Can Trump say let’s protect America against N K. Then ignore the in bred terrorist groups in America. It’s a double standard.
    Honestly, I think Trump does have the right to be and believe what he wants. It sad to see a racist bigotted pig as the President of the US.. I ask you. Is that the man that is going to ” Make America Great Again”.

    Hey Pete, I considered replying to some of the foolish statements I read in previous comments but, like you, I tire of dealing with those who cannot think for themselves and are basically puppets of the lame-stream media. Only a blind fool cannot see there was ‘blame’ on both sides of the disgusting debacle in Charlottesville yet to state this fact apparently makes someone a racist, a white supremacist and a myriad of other labels employed by the loony left when logic and rational thought no longer support their positions. I am so saddened by this ‘new world order’ and I honestly fear for my country…
