Why Are They Rioting?

The young people in their post election rioting believed their leaders. They believe Donald Trump is a racist because the President of the United States and Hillary & Company convinced them Mr Trump and at least half of his supporters are bigots and homophobes and will cause Earth to over-heat. The Left consistently and purposely used the term immigrants instead of using the actual topic of the argument, illegal immigrants.

The misery these rioters are experiencing is caused by a misconception purposely set upon them.

President-Elect Trump has been married to two immigrants and his ancestry has immigrants in it. I am sure Trump Inc has African Americans employed in his companies. I am sure there are gay people in his employ.

These young rioters who know little about politics or government were easily duped. That is the evil and the cruelty of the new Democrats. Democrats weren't like that 30 years ago.

I was attending a meeting on the Univ. of Mississippi during the integration crisis there. As I walked across the campus, I saw a gathering of people mostly made up of a large contingent of the press and a few students. Everyone else were going about their business. Back at my motel room, I turned on the TV. The headline was “massive student riot on Mississippi campus.”

We saw the same thing during the first Iran crisis. The cameras revealed what appeared to be a large crowd of Iranians protesting America. However, every once and a while it would quiet down. Some cameraman would screw up and turn the camera around. There they were, a small group sitting on the curb waiting for the signal to get back up and crowd in front of the cameras. What a joke.

Sometimes cameras lie.

These new Election Rioters are leftover OWS and BLM rioters. Half of them aren't sure why they are there and the other half are there because of ignorance. Let the tear gas flow... like the Fifties parents used to say- "Stop crying or I'll give you something to cry about!" Batter up!

The point I wanted to make about the media use of cameras to distort the picture is I am wondering if the left media is trying to make us believe that the country is in a civil war and going up in flames.

Blogger- Yes they would do just that. But it will work in reverse as those people in the streets and the MSM is at least two of the reasons President-Elect Trump won. The Left talking heads are trying to play it down.

Blogger, I do not post much any more, but I come here everyday. This blog stimulates political thinking as does no other. The young people are correct in thinking this country is in a civil war and is going up in flames. Thank God for that.

This country was founded when Joe Everyman became tired of living with the foot of an oppressor on his neck. As the greatest of the founding fathers, Patrick Henry said "is peace so dear and life so sweet that it should be purchased a the cost of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me give me liberty or give me death!" (The quote may not be word for word, but the idea is the same.)

It took a revolutionary shooting war to found this country. A political war that has been going on ever sense took its place. Read the Federalist Papers and the rebuttals to them to obtain an idea of the feelings about creating a federal government during this period. This war continues to this day and hopefully always will.

As a constitutional republic, we elect our leaders to keep oppressors feet off our necks, including those of members of our own government. Unfortunately, many of these people eventually come to bereave that they know what is better for us than we do so we have to repeat the circle. Vigilance must be eternal.

This circle of oppression has been a long and unusually harsh one. There was a very effective strategy to convince the public that they need government to take care of them and be subject to it instead of the government being subject to the people. There has always been those that want a nanny state, but not to this extent. Many people were bought off with bread and circuses. This was done by both parties to keep the establishment in power.

Trump's victory was a result of the ship righting itself politically. People became so angry that they abandoned the Republican party line and elected an outsider. This person's victory could not have been possible in a general election without support from both independents and Democrats.

It has been said that there are three boxes that insure freedom. These are the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box. Hopefully we will never have to go to the third one, but I have a feeling we were getting close to it. If Hillary had been elected and had tried to do away with the right to own guns, and had been supported by a Supreme Court filled with her appointees, it would have been on.

If we want to avoid a shooting war, then the political war can never stop. The nanny state proponents have a victim personality and will always feel persecuted. There is nothing that can be done to change this situation.
