Violence — The calling card of the Democratic Party

Op-ed views and opinions expressed are solely those of the author.

The Democrat Party has embraced violence as its modus operandi. The party has sent a message to its adherents that anything goes in the pursuit of power—from weaponizing the FBI and IRS against political opponents, to rigging elections, to the use of violence. Democrats will not hesitate to deprive you of your basic rights if it suits their purpose. If that entails violent behavior aimed at you, too bad.

A classic example of Democratic Party-supported violence is occurring as mobs attempt to intimidate conservative Supreme Court justices by protesting in front of their homes. Although this is expressly prohibited by federal law, you won’t see the Democrat-controlled Justice Department taking action against the protestors. Breaking the law has become acceptable.

To mask its love of violence, the Democratic Party has used groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter as surrogates. Mark Levin calls Antifa “the paramilitary wing of the Democratic Party.” They show up everywhere with the intention of shutting down free speech. We don’t hear much about it because the mainstream media is the propaganda wing of the Democratic Party. Hitler used similar tactics in the 1930s. Hitler’s thugs targeted communists and Jews; Antifa vilifies conservatives and Trump supporters. Our liberal mobs believe their mission is to physically assault anyone who happens to be conservative. They feel justified in doing all the things that the Nazi Party did in Germany.

Antifa is the contemporary version of Hitler’s Brownshirts, whose objective, says Dinesh D’Souza, is to “beat people into obeisance.” With the support of Democrat mayors and governors, violent Antifa mobs have trashed our cities, assaulted Trump supporters, and provided justification for more government control over the individual. What has the DOJ done to stop it? Nothing.

Black Lives Matter is another ally of the Democrats. BLM is a criminal enterprise using race as an excuse for the violent overthrow of the civil society. Based on the false narrative that cops are killing blacks, BLM places the blame for all the ills of black America on the shoulders of a so-called tradition of white racism. Racism justifies everything, they insist, including the use of violence.

“BLM believes in force,” says Fox’s Tucker Carlson. “They flood the streets with angry young people who break things and hurt anyone who gets in the way. Until violence stops working, violence will continue.” A BLM spokesman said, “If this country doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it.”

“Democrats,” Carlson said, “believe their long-term goals align with those of BLM.” In other words, the Democratic Party hopes to gain power through anarchy and the mob. No matter where you live, liberal mobs will see to it that you can’t express conservative ideas in public. If you decide to wear a MAGA hat, you place yourself at risk of assault. If you refuse to bow down to the demands of Black Lives Matter and Antifa, they will burn your house to the ground with you in it.

You don’t see Republicans engaged in organized violence. All of the cities experiencing the recent rash of rioting and looting are run by Democrats. Uncivilized behavior is a monopoly of the Left. “It’s leftists who are chanting ‘death to America,’” David Harsanyi wrote in National Review, “not MAGA-hatted shock troops.” Ted Van Dyk writes in the Wall Street Journal that, “The pretense of peaceful protest is rapidly disappearing. Deaths, serious injuries, arson, public and private property damage, and economic dislocation have resulted.”

The Left is rooting for the breakdown of civil society as part of their strategy to “divide and conquer.” Then they can take over and impose their version of a socialist paradise. It goes against the bulwark of our republic—the rule of law. The U.S. Constitution and our legal system give us a set of rules that we can depend on. The Constitution protects us from anarchy.

“Without laws to create civil societies,” population expert Frosty Wooldridge wrote in Sonoran News, “no city, no state, no nation, no people and no civilization can long endure the vagaries of lawlessness.” The failure of Democrat-led city and state governments to prevent rioting represents a movement away from civilization toward a new dark age. Civilization and anarchy are mutually exclusive. A civilized society cannot tolerate lawlessness. For that reason, and that reason alone, the current violence supported by the Democratic Party is completely unacceptable.

“The woke Left leads the charge to destroy civil society,” A.J. Rice wrote in American Greatness. “They believe they’re above and beyond any criticism, and have the right to attack you for questioning them.” Whatever you say that is critical of leftist ideology is called hate speech. “Non-politically correct speech is the equivalent of violence,” Andrew Sullivan wrote in New York Magazine, “and so must be shut down.” For the Democrats, violence may be used to justify violence. If your speech equates to violence, then the Democrats are ready to use violence to enforce your silence.

“Blurring the lines between rhetoric and actual violence has been a core strategy on the Left for years,” said Rice. “Their aim has been to criminalize speech they disagree with, while making it acceptable to engage in physical violence whenever they want.” The justification of violent behavior is not a two-way street. If you are Republican, you will be prosecuted for merely a hint of violence. Contrast the leniency accorded thousands of violent leftist rioters in the summer of 2020 with the draconian treatment of the non-violent January 6th Capitol protestors, who were looked upon as Trump supporters.

If you agree with the liberal playbook, you get all the justice and fairness that money can buy. But if you are conservative and a Trump supporter, you are subjected to a double standard. Sorry. Justice and fair play do not apply to you. The Justice Department, FBI, CIA, and other federal agencies have been taken over by the left-wingers of the Deep State. Their allegiance is to the Democratic Party—a party whose allegiance is to the use of violence as a political tool.
