I watched during the violent anti-war rallies of the 60s on college campuses and streets of our nation by the anti-war protesters. They were attacking the police with Molotov cocktails, spitting on them and calling them "pigs", I couldn't imagine the civil rights marchers acting out this way without the police beating them to death. After all, they were being beaten and jailed for peaceful protests around the country.
My first thoughts, as a fourteen-year-old was, "if they were Black the police would be attacking them with dogs and batons". Recently, we have watched the police stand as the anti-Trump protestors act as anarchists, as in the 60s. We have witnessed anarchists burning police cars, breaking store-front windows, physically attacking those they don’t agree with politically.
If a Black Lives Matter rally had the violence of the anti-Trump protestors it would be a bloodbath. Why do we tolerate the violence from these leftists, immature, dim-witted young people? We can all agree that the last 3 generations have been intellectually dumbed down, it shows when protesters are interviewed. Most of them don't have a clue why they are protesting except it is for the freedom to do what they want to do!
We need to oppose, suppress and prosecute those acting out violently at rallies regardless of political affiliation, position or activity.
Protest is American as apple pie, but violence and intolerance doesn’t have a place in our country. We can't have a country without a moral compass, John Adams was clear that the constitution was only designed for a moral and religious people.
Here is his statement:
