Are We Watching the Fall of America Right Now?
Are We Watching the Fall of America Right Now? by Daisy Luther – The Organic Prepper
The news of late makes me wonder if we are watching the fall of America in real time. Rage is being deliberately stoked by the mainstream media. No longer is the dissension just arguments online – it’s beginning to bubble over into the streets, in real actions like shootings, vandalism, and beatings. Protests easily turn into battles in our cities, American against American. Meanwhile, our economy is collapsing all around us and the wealthy are preparing. But, we’re too distracted by fighting with our neighbors to notice.
Are we witnessing the fall of our civilization?
Why is ANYONE surprised about the baseball shooting?
With the political rage and disrespect for the opinions of others that has been ongoing since the election, this shooting is just the beginning.
For the record, I an neither a conservative nor a liberal. I’m a libertarian. I’m in my late 40s and I’ve loved politics and current events since I was a girl. I’ve never seen anything like our current environment. No matter how much people disliked a president, there wasn’t this blatant, palpable hatred and divisiveness.
How can anyone be surprised that the violence has come to a boil when it’s considered “art” for a B-list comedian to pose for a photo holding what appears to be the bloody, severed head of the President? How can you feign shock when a play featuring the assassination of someone who looks exactly like Trump is sponsored by one of the biggest media companies in the country? A major website (I don’t know how the Huffington Post has an ounce of credibility, but they do) even published an op-ed about why Trump and his people should all be executed. You can’t see the original one on HuffPo because it was pulled, but the cached version of this diatribe is here. Sorry, HuffPo. The internet is forever.
Is anyone really that stunned that someone unbalanced actually took steps to enact violence against those they consider the enemy? That he had an assassination list of Republicans in his pocket?
And this is an action that we’re hearing about because those involved were members of Congress. There have been many other attacks against people who were Trump supporters. The Daily Caller News Foundation compiled a” close but non-exhaustive list of violent acts against conservatives in months following the Republican National Convention.” Go here to read the full list – it is extensive. And the crimes are increasing. See the chart below? The only reason that June is lower is that the month was only half over when this compilation was created.
And conservatives are fighting back. Last night, a group rushed the stage in Central Park where that repugnant assassination play is taking place. Groups have organized to protect speakers and protesters from those who want to silence everyone with a different opinion, like the AntiFa, an incredibly violent organization who thinks anything is justified in their resistance against Trump.
A strategist for the Democratic Party even started the trending hashtags #HuntRepublicans and #HuntRepublicanCongressmen. What the heck, America?
Violence begets violence. Extremism on either side begets extremism on the opposite side. People are responding to each other. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.
