WE WON’T FORGET

We won’t forget how you bloodied people because of the shirt or hat they wore.  We won’t forget how you burned and looted.  We won’t forget how you torched freedom of speech.

We Won’t Forget

By Mario Murillo

We won’t forget how you bloodied people because of the shirt or hat they wore.  We won’t forget how you burned and looted.  We won’t forget how you torched freedom of speech.

Schumer, Pelosi, and you gaggle of Dem leaders who remain silent in the face of anarchy—do you honestly think we will forget?  We will remember your tacit approval of these riots.

We aren’t fooled by your support for open borders.  It’s not about equality…it’s about staying in power.  How can we forget that?

You hapless Hollywood haranguers who spewed murderous venom—comparing Trump to Hitler, and for calling not only for his death, but for the death of his entire family—will not be forgotten.

You nattering nabobs of journalism will live in infamy.  CNN, MSNBC, The Washington Post and The New York Times…you have sold your souls to override the will of the people.  Thanks to the internet, social media, and yes, bloggers, you will be fact checked into irrelevance.  How rich!  You complain that Russia hacked the election…while you were the hack of the century for Hillary.   We will never forget how you are still trying to manipulate reality.

We will remember how you all thought you were a resistance movement.  No one said it better than John Feehery in his article for The Hill entitled Dem resistance is futile:

“America is not on the brink of civil war. Trump is not Adolph Hitler or Benito Mussolini. Nor is the so-called “resistance” really a resistance. It’s a political movement.

It’s certainly no French Resistance, which arose after the Nazis invaded and then occupied France in 1940. 

The French resistance movement started slow but picked up steam as the German regime revealed itself to be a murderous, plundering, racist group of thugs. By 1944, the resistance became a full-fledged army, capable of going behind enemy lines, cutting off telephone lines, blowing up train tracks and otherwise causing mayhem.

The Democratic resistance movement isn’t capable of stopping Trump’s efforts to appoint his own Cabinet officials because Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) helpfully changed Senate rules right before he retired. 

Nor will Democrats be able to stop Trump from appointing his highly-qualified pick to the Supreme Court. 

They aren’t much of resistance movement because Trump is not a Nazi and because the United States is not Germany in the 1930s.

An imperfect understanding of history is every bit as harmful as complete ignorance of history. 

The Democrats, and more than a few Never Trump Republicans, imagine themselves to be brave, solitary figures standing against the rise of a brutal dictator.

That ridiculous. 

We not only have plenty of institutional checks and balances arrayed against any potential dictator. We also are, as a people, a nation that takes its liberties pretty seriously. 

We are not the Weimar Republic. We don’t have inflation hitting 300 percent. Unemployment is not at 30 percent but at 4.8 percent. 

We might have our fair share of disagreements, but we have a constitutional process to resolve them amicably, without bloodshed.”

We will not forget how thugs, thieves and liars tried to pawn themselves off as guardians of liberty.

We are only two years away from having to remember.  We will not loot, lie, or burn… we will vote.  We will enter the booth with vivid images of both your lawless behavior and the politicians who sided with you.

But there are other things we will not forget: 

We will not forget the soldiers who died to give us the freedom of speech that you are so wholeheartedly abusing.

We will not forget the unborn whose rights—in the name of rights—you have so blatantly disregarded.

Most of all, we will not forget that we are one nation under God.  We will never forget the holy advantage prayer has been in every national crisis.  We will never forget the Bible—the sacred scriptures that formed the character that made us great.

Lastly, we won’t forget the power of forgiveness.  Many young hearts, because of peer pressure, are being swept up in a frenzy of deceit.  We know Christ has the power to open their eyes and give them new life.  We will never forget compassion and the Good News!

Protesters get their wish: Dead Cops

There is blood on hands of those who demanded ‘dead cops’

“What do we want?” drones the blood chant.

“Dead cops!” comes the reply.

Done.

Thus does rhetoric have consequences.

There may have been just a single shooter in Bedford-Stuyvesant on Saturday afternoon. But New York’s failure to denounce without nuance the bloodlust that’s been boiling out of the corners of the Eric Garner-Michael Brown demonstrations for weeks now boils down to this:

There is blood on many hands this morning.

Yes, First Amendment. Yes, redress of grievances. Yes, peaceful protests — even as clogged bridges and mobbed boulevards created, however temporarily, very real peril for tens of thousands of New Yorkers every night for a week.

The free-speech trope is so obviously true that it’s a deflection even to raise it.

Here’s the real issue: It was, and it remains, the responsibility of protest organizers — such as they may be in the face of ubiquitous social media — to directly address murderous incantations, to unequivocally condemn those who call down harm on the city’s protectors.

And they didn’t do that.

Moreover, when two of the six people who “allegedly” attacked two cops on the Brooklyn Bridge a week ago Saturday night turn out to be, respectively, a CUNY professor and an organizer for a union that placed five one-time senior union leaders in top de Blasio ­administration posts, it’s clear that New York isn’t dealing with bearded Bolsheviks living in caves.

Violence against cops has gone mainstream — that is, violent threats to society itself can manifest virtually without a soul among the city’s elected leaders saying so much as boo.
Pitiful.

The cops understand all this, of course. They get the threat. They are steeped in the department’s institutional memories of other cops, executed from ambush in similar circumstances. They know its tradition of reflexive heroism under deadly threat — and they are proud it its record: Not perfect, of course, but better than anyone else’s.

And now this.

Who would have thought that PBA President Pat Lynch’s don’t-come-to-my-funeral petition would have become so relevant, so prescient, so tragically right to the point.

So quickly.

There will be time to count the political consequences of Saturday’s cowardly murders.

They will be substantial.

The city’s cut-the-baby-in-half approach to the Garner-Brown protests — genuflect to the PBA, confer with the most rhetorically irresponsible of the protesting groups, rinse, repeat — lent an air of moral equivalence to the events leading up to Saturday’s savagery.

Nobody knows what was in the shooter’s mind, of course; happily, he relieved society of the ­responsibility of trying to find out with a well-placed bullet to his own head.

But anybody who thinks he wasn’t emboldened by City Hall’s placidity in the face of nihilistic, bloodthirsty incantations is delusional.

And anyone who believes that the city’s decision not to draw a high-profile line — even if only symbolically — after the ­“alleged” Brooklyn Bridge attacks was not empowering to the shooter is equally wrong.

Was the shooter crazy? Define crazy. The city is full of crazies. And none of them needs to be ­encouraged in their psychoses — certainly not by the suggestion that official New York thinks they somehow may have a point.

It’s wrong to blame the protests wholly for the actions of one person — up to a point.

That is, right up to the point when the protesters began to ­demand dead cops — and nobody put a stop to it.

Right up to the point where protesters began to drop full garbage cans 10 feet down on unsuspecting cops, and nobody took it for what it was: An escalation that culminated in yesterday’s Bed-Stuy executions.

And now for the funerals — for the heartbreaking skirl of the pipes and the agony of the families; for the grim-faced officers from across America, lined to the horizon in silent tribute to ambushed brothers; for the folded flags and the endless motorcades to the cemetery.

You wanted dead cops, protesters? You got ’em.

Now live with it. If you can.

Florida Cop Shot, Killed in Tarpon Springs Shooting

A police officer was shot and killed early Sunday morning in Florida, officials said. The Pinellas County Sheriff’s office said the shooting occurred at around 3 a.m. EST in Tarpon Springs, about 30 miles from Tampa, Florida. The sheriff’s office said the suspect is in custody but did not provide further details on a possible motive.

The shooting came hours after a gunman shot and killed two police officers in Brooklyn before taking his own life. Investigators in New York believe the attacker boasted on social media about a plan to target cops, possibly out of revenge for the deaths of two unarmed black men who died in confrontations with police.
