Amidst lingering protests and ongoing civil tension, this country is descending into chaos and none of the leaders in the major cities where the carnage is occurring are doing anything about it. They are perfectly content to watch their cities burn and the country along with it, all in the name of placating the mob.
Are these Democrat mayors in favor of anti-American values or are they just afraid of the mobs of protesters? I honestly can’t answer that question. If we had a press that was capable of doing their job, they would ask mayors like Chicago’s Lori Lightfoot and Jenny Durkan of Seattle why they are letting whole neighborhoods be taken over by militant protesters and criminal elements. And that’s exactly what these people are. The fact that the media tries to label these people as “peaceful” protesters is laughable on multiple levels.
Fortunately, President Trump is taking action to restore law and order in cities where the mayors are unwilling to do so. On Wednesday, President Trump announced what he intends to do to combat the lawlessness on the streets of some of America’s largest and most dangerous cities.
Fox News reported, “President Trump is deploying 100 federal agents to Chicago to help combat rising rates of some crimes – a move that marks an expansion of the White House’s intervention into local law enforcement as Trump continues to position himself as the ‘law and order’ president.
The ‘surge’ of agents announced on Wednesday to Chicago and other American cities is part of Operation Legend – named after four-year-old LeGend Taliferro, who was fatally shot while sleeping in a Kansas City apartment late last month – and comes as federal law enforcement officers have already descended on Portland, Ore. and Kansas City, Mo.
‘The effort to shut down police in their own communities has led to a shocking explosion of shootings, killing, violence, and murders, Trump said during a speech in the White House’s East Room. ‘This rampage of violence shocks the conscience of our nation and we will not stand by and watch it happen.’”
The Leftist mob is trying to destroy the United States of America as we know it, and Democrat mayors like Lori Lightfoot are standing by as the country is being attacked and districts are being occupied. These people deserve no respect and an argument could be made that the mob is composed of domestic terrorists. They are using violence and intimidation to take over whole sections of America’s cities in places like Seattle, Portland, and New York.
If there is no law and order, there is no country. President Trump understands this, but Democrat governors either don’t know it or don’t care. They are too worried about bending the knee to the mob to take care of their cities.
This is the greatest country to ever exist. No, we have not been a perfect country. However, this country has redeemed many of the sins of our past to make this a more perfect union. America is NOT a systemically racist country anymore. This isn’t the same country as 1760, 1860, or even 1960. This is 2020 and there is much to celebrate about the progress that has taken place in the country over the past 60 years.
There is absolutely NO reason to undo this progress in the name of a socialist agenda like the one being proposed by Black Lives Matter and other similar far-Left organizations.
President Trump has been put in this position by the mayors of these Democrat-controlled cities. It’s not as if he takes pleasure in sending Federal agents into harm’s way to do the job that the Dem mayors should be doing. However, that is what he is being forced to do because the situation at hand calls for it.
Whatever one may think of President Trump as a person, he deserves the respect of those who revere the Constitution and the rule of law. He is the last line of defense against the lawless Leftist mob. We can only hope that he doesn’t have to keep fighting alone.
