Wild horses could not drag me out of my home on this 4th of July. A swarm of UFOs could fly lazy circles in the sky overhead and I would remain inside. The Laker’s Cheerleaders streaking bare-ass naked down my street leaving fists-full of hundred dollar bills in their wake could not coax me outside… Well, maybe just for a few minutes.
This Independence Day will be held on a Saturday night when those few who still have jobs will enjoy the night off. It will also be a full moon. Add to that a Lunar Eclipse. The word “lunatic” is derived from the Latin “Luna” due to the observed effects of the moon on unpredictable and often irrational human behavior.
Let us not forget that several large cities have decided to defund their Police in the face of civil unrest. The Radical Left has declared Independence Day a “Racist Holiday.” Shootings by ANTIFA Radicals are becoming epidemic, with little notice or outrage by the media, among politicians, or the public at large. Of course another reason is that the sounds of pistol and rifle shots are hard to distinguish from firecrackers and exploding fireworks. Who would know the difference unless it were observed or experienced in person?
There is also a growing sentiment enforced by our radical Leftist mainstream media (CNN, NBC, ABC, PBS, etc,) that it is an act of unjustified racism to defend home or life against violence perpetrated in the name of Black Lives Matter (BLM) in areas where police have been removed. The United States is besieged by zombie-like hoards, marching with arms outstretched repeatedly chanting “hands up, don’t shoot…” while others in their midst brandish bricks, rocks, clubs, Molotov cocktails and firearms. These ambling herds of “Peaceful Protesters” wander streets, highways and even freeways unannounced to the public and with the firm conviction that BLM has both the moral and physical right-of-way. One minute the scene is tranquil, and the next minute a Zombie Apocalypse appears. An armed couple in St. Louis Missouri, defending their home against over five hundred Black Lives Matter protesters who broke a gate and entered private property now face criminal charges. The media has vilified armed self-defense in the face of police defunding as “obvious madness.” In another incident in Provo Utah, a driver who encountered the road blocked by an unannounced BLM protest came to a stop. The driver of the SUV was shot through the windshield by a “Peaceful Protester” and was likewise vilified by the press for hitting the gas as another bullet tore through the rear window of the vehicle.
The icing on the cake of this 4th of July will be a massive rally and flag-burning by Black Lives Matter at Gettysburg Pennsylvania… GETTYSBURG! Did these kids get their history from the Del Norte Unified School District? Was their history textbook written by Kim Jung Un? For those educated in Del Norte County, Gettysburg was the decisive battle for defeating the Confederacy!
There is no reasoning or logic within this emotion driven Marxist Religion known as Black Lives Matter. I’d call it a cult, but a charismatic leader has yet to surface. This new religion quite literally has nothing to do any longer with Black Lives Mattering! The outrage was spawned by the death of George Floyd, a Black man. His death led to the physical seizure and occupation of urban centers, the toppling of historical monuments, defunding many urban Police Departments, and Nancy Pelosi’s Congressional “George Kirby Police Reform Act” (She forgot George Floyd’s name during the televised announcement). Meanwhile, two black teens, aged 14 and 16 were gunned down in a car, Bonnie and Clyde style, in a ten minute hail of of over 300 bullets from several ANTIFA “Security Guards” just outside the Seattle Capitol Hill Occupied Protest (CHOP). This murder of one teen and severe injuries to the other spurred no outrage at all by the mainstream media against ANTIFA. Leaders of the Democrat controlled US Congress did not bat an eye. Little if any mention or significance was expressed by the protesters. The perpetrators of this ambush walk the streets today and nobody cares if they will ever be identified or punished.
Black Lives Matter? The monuments that they are toppling have nothing to do with the phrase! They have toppled statues dedicated to Abolitionists, Union Army Generals, Black Soldiers who fought in the Civil War, and even the Lincoln Emancipation Proclamation Monument! They are destroying statues of missionaries and have vowed to destroy all depictions of “White Jesus.” They even burned a 120 year old statue of an elk in Portland. I guess elks are now symbols of fascist racist oppression. We can only hope that these “Peaceful Protesters” don’t gun down our local herds of elk!
If our daily “News” were presented in a television segment of The Twilight Zone of the 1950s, it would be considered too far-fetched, over-the-top, and an object of ridicule. After all, who would ever believe that Cleveland Ohio would remove their statue of Christopher Columbus to be replaced with one of Chef Boyardee? The most creative minds in Hollywood could not make these things up!
I’m sorry folks. Not only is it dangerous to celebrate Independence Day; but there seems little reason to celebrate. Here in California we have little or no Independence left and our rights are being legislated away by the day. Seriously, do you really think that our forefathers fought and died so you can enjoy parades, bar-b-ques, and fireworks sprinkled liberally with flags waving and patriotic music and song? You could do the same in Russia, China, or North Korea during their patriotic celebrations. I know that these traditions hold a warm-fuzzy emotional value; yet they all ring hollow without the Constitution of the United States and the Bill of Rights. Independence Day doesn’t mean a thing without Independence!
This 4th of July, I am staying inside my home, locking the doors and windows, physically blocking the doors, drawing the shades and will be ready to defend myself. I will do this even though, in the nonsensical climate of New America, I do not have the right to do so. It is better to be judged by twelve than carried by six.
This Marxist Revolution is happening to some extent throughout the world. It reminds me of the Rat Utopia Experiments of the 1950s and 1960s that culminated with overpopulation, mass-insanity, self-destruction and colony collapse.
Perhaps this event solves the mysterious disappearances of previous cultures and civilizations. Maybe we are witnessing the very reason that only a few pottery shards and broken monuments give testament to magnificent cultures of the past. This might just be a part of the human condition, a genetic trait of self-loathing that has been carried through the millennia.
Mark Twain once wrote of Satan’s first letter to Heaven sharing with Michael and Gabriel his impressions of the Earth:
“Satan’s First Letter
This is a strange place, an extraordinary place, and interesting. There is nothing resembling it at home. The people are all insane, the other animals are all insane, the earth is insane, Nature itself is insane. Man is a marvelous curiosity. When he is at his very very best he is a sort of low grade nickel-plated angel; at his worst he is unspeakable, unimaginable; and first and last and all the time he is a sarcasm. Yet he blandly and in all sincerity calls himself the “noblest work of God.” This is the truth I am telling you. And this is not a new idea with him, he has talked it through all the ages, and believed it. Believed it, and found nobody among all his race to laugh at it. “
Excerpted from Letters From the Earth by Mark Twain
Enjoy your 4th of July folks. Participate or not; the choice is yours. Be careful with your fireworks, especially if there is wind. Wet down your yards before festivities begin and have a garden hose and bucket of water handy. Keep a first aid kit on hand also. Don’t get too drunk. While the firecrackers are popping, remember there may also be lunatics with guns running about. Take care of yourselves and your neighbors and back-up our local law enforcement if they come under attack. I am expecting such dreadful things to happen in the big cities and pray that it does not happen here.
