We have seen it before, and there is never anyone held accountable. The progressive socialist left and their media accomplices stoke the flames with their delusional, deranged, dangerous rhetoric and they become enraged with anger.
It happened when a far-left supporter of Bernie Sanders decided to travel from Illinois to the Washington, DC, area with the intent of gunning down Republicans. Y’all remember, the GOP members of Congress who were practicing for the annual charity baseball game. All of a sudden, a leftist opens fire on them, nearly killing House GOP Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA).
I do not recall any rantings from the left about the fact that he acquired firearms. But, this is what happens when the left uses language that enrages their “useful idiots,” preventing them from seeing anyone disagreeing with progressive socialism as people. We are relegated into something less than human, and therefore not to be afforded any basic rights, to include that of life.
Well, it is happening again. Led by the American version of Eva Peron, the leftists have now focused upon our Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency. The hate-filled rhetoric of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her ilk against an American law enforcement agency is now leading towards abject violence.
There were two stories reported by Townhall that evidence such:
“For a leftist, it looks like there is nothing more American . . . than tearing down your country’s flag and replace it with Mexico’s? At a protest against the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency in Aurora, Colorado on Friday leftwing protesters ripped down Old Glory and flew the flag of Mexico proudly. According to Fox News,
“The protesters also removed a ‘Blue Lives Matter’ flag, honoring law enforcement, spray-painted it with the words ‘Abolish ICE,’ then raised the flag upside-down, on a pole next to the Mexican flag, according to local media.”
“Hundreds of protesters had gathered in Aurora, Colo., outside the federal facility that holds illegal immigrants, to protest ICE raids scheduled to begin Sunday in Denver and other major U.S. cities,” Fox noted. The raids will target only people with final deportation orders.”
The Seattle Times reports that an armed man was shot and killed this [Sunday] morning after attacking a local Tacoma Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency with Molotov cocktails at 4:00 AM this morning.
Around 4 a.m., officers responded to an ICE employee’s report of a man armed with a rifle and throwing homemade incendiaries at the building and vehicles in the detention center’s parking lot, as well as attempting to ignite a propane tank, according to Tacoma police.
Officers say they saw the man wearing a satchel and holding flares, as well as the rifle. Officers reported “shots fired,” police spokeswoman Loretta Cool said, at which point the officers had fired; she did not know whether the man also fired. Officers retreated to cover, uninjured.
After medical aid arrived, officers approached the man and determined that he had been shot and killed. It is unclear whether the man was shot by officers or shot himself, Cool said. All four involved officers fired their weapons, she said. The shooting comes just one day before ICE is expected to begin deporting thousands of illegal aliens with final order of removal.”
Last week we shared with you our assessment that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had committed “high crimes and misdemeanors” by publicly articulating how those here illegally should not adhere to our laws. Here is the person third in line to our presidency, a so-called American lawmaker, elected official, advising illegal immigrants who have violated our laws by entering illegally, and not appearing for court hearings, to disrespect our laws? What part of this cannot be deemed irresponsible, and treasonous?
Just the same as with these elected officials who defy the laws of our Constitutional Republic and disavow our national sovereignty for their insidious ideological agenda by establishing sanctuary states and cities for illegal immigrants and refuse to abide by our laws. What part of this are we not understanding?
We have these mindless lemmings who listen to the useful idiot pundits who call themselves political commentators and pundits on these progressive socialist news outlets that spread the talking points of the left.
What is the result? Assaults against law enforcement agencies and their facilities. When we have Little Red Book Riding Hood, Ocasio-Cortez, with her disturbing emotional, non-factual rantings calling for ICE to be abolished while attacking our border patrol agents. When we allow anti-American domestic terrorist groups like Antifa to freely operate, with the support and praise of the Democrat (socialist) Party, this is the result.
This is why I am heading down to McAllen, Texas, next month — for the second time — to show my support of the US Border Patrol and do a 3-Gun Shoot. I will not stand by idly and allow these brave men and women of the USBP and ICE to be denigrated and assailed by the progressive socialist left, who also seek to flood this country with criminal illegal immigrants while disarming law-abiding legal gun owners in America.
Yes, we are embroiled in an ideological civil war with a group of people who are indeed anti-American. This is no longer a debatable assertion, the have validated it with their own actions and words.
We are now at a time when we must admit that the words and language of Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley are not about free speech. It is promoting abject sedition, and insurrection. These are hard accusations, but they are a reasonable deduction when one objectively understands their actions, their own words. I, as an American who took an oath to our Constitution, will not sit back idly and allow them to undermine our Constitutional Republic and will ensure that the Lone Star State rejects these radicals.
It is offensive to me that the American Flag was torn down from a building in my United States of America and replaced with any other country’s flag. If you are not offended by that, well, my oath commands me to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign, and domestic.” If you attack my country, you are my enemy, and you must be defeated.
