The Charlottesville Riots: Erasing Culture

The riots that occurred at Charlottesville were a horrible example of how political discourse in the United States has devolved into an outright civil war. The media and the American left, which make excuses for Antifa, have normalized political violence. This violence escalated in Charlottesville, leading to the tragic death of Heather Heyer. The threat of assault, both physical and verbal, is now used to censor those on the right. President Trump was quick to condemn bigotry on both sides: the white nationalists on the Alt-Right and the violent and equally racist members of Antifa.

President Trump’s press conference last Tuesday was a masterful display of rhetorical skill. He condemned bigotry on all sides the day of the riot, since Antifa and Neo-Nazis on the Alt-Right were present. He even condemned the media for rushing to judgment on what had happened. The President asked one reporter, “What about the ‘alt-left’ that came charging at the Alt-Right? Do they have any semblance of guilt?” In an instant, the President reframed the opposition and added a new word to the American lexicon. The Alt-Right members who showed up were without a doubt a hateful, anti-semitic, racist group of losers who I would never defend. However, the Alt-Left were also equally bigoted and committed acts of violence. They even sprayed graffiti saying “die whites die.” President Trump was right to double down on his original statement about condemning bigotry “on all sides,” including Antifa.

The media on the other hand, has never condemned Antifa when they committed violence on numerous occasions in the past. Shutting down Milo Yiannopoulos’ speech at Berkeley was the prime example. Instead of denouncing the violence on the part of Antifa, the media blamed Milo for being too provocative and hateful. Yvette Felarca, the head of the domestic terrorist group By Any Means Necessary (BAMN), organized the riots at Berkeley. In an interview, she said that “the left has been far too timid” and that “mass and militant protests” are what is necessary to stop fascists (namely Milo and President Trump). The definition of the word fascist has proven to be extremely broad, with everyone who is right of center being included. No one in the media or on the left has condemned Felarca and her evil actions to this day.

There is also the infamous punch a Nazi meme, which was created after Alt-Right leader Richard Spencer, who was present at the Unite the Right protest, was punched in the face by a black-clad Antifa member. The meme normalized violence against those who were deemed as Nazis. The term Nazi has also been given a broad definition to include all Trump supporters. The left and its counterparts in the media did not condemn this disgraceful idea and instead spread the meme. By saying it is acceptable to punch a Nazi, you are giving someone free license to kill a Nazi by sanctioning physical violence against them. What is to say that you can just stop at a punch? By declaring it acceptable to punch Nazis, the left has not only condoned violence, but has given itself the power to determine who can be an acceptable target for assault.

The very existence of Antifa is a confession of inadequacy on the part of the left. The left lost the argument during the election. They had the media, the political establishment, Hollywood celebrities, pollsters and pundits on their side and yet were still unable to achieve victory. After the loss, Antifa immediately began committing acts of violence with the riots in Washington D.C. on inauguration day. Antifa is the street muscle for the left that is used to silence those who disagree with them. The left is no longer interested in debate because they are utterly incapable of making a convincing argument. They want to do everything they can to reverse the results of the last election, and have resorted to deceit and mayhem in order to achieve that objective.

Remember when the media went hysterical over Donald Trump not accepting the results of the election? It turns out that they were projecting their own wicked nature onto President Trump. They continue to push the narrative that Russia hacked the election without any substantial evidence. Dana R. Fisher, an NBC contributor, described violent members of Antifa as protestors who are “defending the left” from the “hateful and racist messages” coming from the right. Now, media outlets trying to link President Trump with the KKK and Neo-Nazis as a way to gin up public outrage and remove him from office. This is in spite of the President repeatedly vilifying the KKK and Neo-Nazis during his presidential campaign. The President cannot even count on members of his own party for support in the midst of this media coup.

Republicans have proven themselves to be the biggest obstacles to President Trump’s success by obstructing his agenda and aligning themselves with the media. John McCain, who voted against repealing Obamacare after running on a platform to repeal the law, tweeted support for the disgusting members of Antifa last Tuesday: “There’s no moral equivalency between racists & Americans standing up to defy hate & bigotry. The President of the United States should say so.” McCain has bought into the media narrative of Antifa and is willing to excuse their violence as a means of avoiding the chants of racism from the media. Like President Trump, I also prefer people who weren’t captured. Mitt Romney, proving once again why he lost the presidential election in 2012 tweeted on the same day: “No, not the same. One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes.” Romney himself would have to be on a morally different universe himself to not recognize the immoral beliefs on both sides. Marco Rubio took the lunacy to another level when he openly condoned the brutality exhibited by Antifa. “When entire movement built on anger & hatred towards people different than you, it justifies & ultimately leads to violence against them,” Rubio tweeted. The response to Charlottesville is a clear litmus test on who President Trump can trust to support him in his efforts to make America great again. It also reveals to the general public who is willing to support the rule of law and the preservation of our history as a nation.

What impressed me the most was President Trump’s defense of the monuments across the country. “This week it’s Robert E. Lee. I notice that Stonewall Jackson is coming down. I wonder, is it George Washington next week and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You really do have to ask yourself: When is it going to stop?” The statues of Confederate leaders such as Robert E. Lee are a part of American history, whether we like it or not. They should serve as a reminder to us of how much our country had to sacrifice in order to defeat such formidable foes in the Civil War and put an end to slavery in America. Destroying those monuments would wipe away that history and the lessons we could take from it. Washington and Jefferson were both slaveowners as well as Founding Fathers. Are we to wipe away their memory and any wisdom that they imparted on us? Those who seek to destroy these monuments ultimately want to expunge any part of American culture or history that does not conform to their social justice ideology.

The irony of these attempts to remove Confederate statues is that the Confederacy was a creation of the Democrat Party. Every slaveowner in America before the Civil War started was a Democrat. It was the Republicans who were fighting for abolition. The statues that are being removed at statues of Democrats which were put up by Democrats. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo called on the Army to rename two streets in Brooklyn honoring Confederate Civil War generals. “Renaming these streets will send a clear message that in New York, we stand against intolerance and racism, whether it be insidious and hidden or obvious and intentional,” Cuomo wrote in a letter sent to acting Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy. When Democrats like Cuomo condemn the Confederacy and attempt to eliminate any of its symbols, they are condemning the history of their own party. They are so ashamed of their own party’s history that they want to erase it in an attempt to gain the moral high ground. Black Pigeon Speaks did an excellent video on the subject, comparing the feral left’s desire to erase American history to ISIS destroying monuments from other cultures that they come across on their conquests. ISIS has destroyed, churches, ancient statues and libraries to remove any traces of a previous culture. As America gets closer to becoming a minority white nation, any traces of its European cultural heritage are being erased in a similar manner.

There is a concerted effort on the part of leftists and Democrats to turn whites into a minority in the United States. Democrats have not been able to get the majority of whites to vote for them in presidential elections for decades, and it therefore works to their advantage electorally to make whites a minority. Sally Boynton Brown, who I have written about in a post on anti-white racism, stated openly during her campaign to become chair of the DNC that it was her job “to shut other white people down.” She wants to “make sure that they get that they have privilege.” Brown also wanted to reach out to people of color because her home state of Idaho was “so white!” She said this as if it were a complaint to a cheering crowd. Joe Biden himself spoke about how whites will become minority in the United States by 2017, and that it is a “not a bad thing” and that it is “a source of our strength.” The 1965 Immigration and Naturalization Act was passed with the intention of changing America’s demographics to make whites a minority by bringing in an unrelenting stream of third world immigrants.

This entire plan to turn whites into a minority is rooted in anti-white racism. The call for diversity and multiculturalism means that whites should play a smaller and smaller part in American society. The social justice warriors on the left believe that whites have historically been the oppressors across the world and are to blame for all the inequality between them and minorities. In order to achieve social justice, not only will whites be turned into a minority but any symbols of their cultural heritage as Americans will also be destroyed. The Democrats go along with this process because it is electorally beneficial for them, as third world immigrants vote for them by in large. Whites will become a scorned minority bereft of a country if this process continues. Those who oppose this process are being threatened and censored, often through violence.

I fear that both the demographic shift and anti-white racism will lead to an ethnic conflict within the United States that will not be resolved peacefully. We must prevent this slide to barbarism by using reason and evidence to convince people to join our cause. No one is going to do this for us. We as individuals must work to preserve our civilization and history as Americans. If Charlottesville is anything to go by, now may be our last chance.
