Antifa: Convert to Sanity Speaks Out… 

Comment: 

People in the UK who rely on the mainstream British news outlets may not even have heard of Antifa, or think that it is only active in the USA.  Wrong.  Both Antifa and Black Lives Matter (BLM) are extreme left-wing groups, each openly committed to political violence – and they’re becoming more committed by the nano-second. 

Members of these groups have been causing chaos in the USA throughout the summer of 2020, setting fire to buildings and police cars, terrorising cities and towns. They hated President Trump with a vengeance and, in advance of the November 2020 election, the windows in Washington DC were boarded up in anticipation of a Trump victory. When Biden was announced the winner, there was no violence.  Having said that, there is still ongoing violence in certain parts of the USA, but, amazingly, nothing is done about it.  Perhaps RCA Victor,  our American Blogger-in-Chief,  can  explain that. 

BLM is also active in the UK.  One headline in the local Evening Telegraph on 12 June, 2020 read:  Outrage at posters in Dundee calling for police, MPs and white people to be killed.  All signed off with #BlackLivesMatter / #Antifa /#BLM Scotland /#Avenge Slavery…

In fact, these groups are not remotely concerned about racism – they’re anarchists.  We saw how the police did nothing when BLM protests took place in the UK at the height of the lockdown – when I say “did nothing” I mean they did nothing to end the protests or round up protesters for breaking Covid restrictions; they did something, though – they joined in with the protest, “taking the knee” to use the silly coinage which has gone into common parlance since the death of George Floyd.  

So, what now?  Should the police in the UK show tolerance and even sympathy to these anarchist groups, treat them as domestic terrorists, or set up lines of communication in the hope of winning a few more “converts to sanity” – enabling young people to escape the clutches of these dangerous rebels, and perhaps, in time, with some apostolic endeavour on the part of the Church, convert to Christ?  

Biden: The Man Who Stole America… 

The first video posted here – a segment from the Greg Kelly Report on Newsmax, has been removed from YouTube. Here’s another of our favourite Newsmax presenters – Christ Salcedo – commenting on The Man Who Stole America… Entitled Biden has already ‘failed’, Chris Salcedo highlights the hypocritical rhetoric of the “winners” of this recent USA election…

This video below has now been removed by YouTube; it was a short segment from the Greg Kelly Report on Newsmax. At one time his reporting would have come under the heading of  “fair comment”.  Not any more. Now there are only two headings:  Democrat policy/opinion and  Censored opinion…

On second thoughts, should the headline to this thread of discussion be Harris: The Woman Who Stole America… ? 

Comment: 

It’s been dispiriting watching the coverage of the invasion of the US Congress by a dubious minority during the Trump protest yesterday. I say “dubious” because there were clearly infiltrators at the heart of the chaos, people who had gone there with the intention of bringing the Trump movement into disrepute. One commentator writes…

“The first thing you need to ask yourself: was the break-in at the Capitol, while Congress was in session holding a debate about election certification, an attempt to stop a transfer of power to Biden, or an attempt to stop the debate itself—during which legislators would have laid out evidence of fraud?

The assault did achieve a stoppage of the debate, which was being carried live on television.

The legislators were evacuated.

We do know that, going back months, Antifa was issuing memos to its members to appear at Trump rallies posing as supporters of the president, wearing appropriate gear, so that when Antifa caused trouble and committed violence, their actions would be blamed on Trumpers.

I’m not saying all the people who broke through into the Capitol today were Antifa, but their members could have led the way, stirring up anger and moving at the head of the hundreds who knocked down barriers and forced back the police.

Shortly before the break-in, C-Span was airing a senator’s rebuttal to Mitch McConnell’s speech. McConnell gave one of those smooth clichéd-filled presentations, claiming there was no evidence of fraud on a scale that would have overturned the election. His main (irrelevant) point was, the courts found no reason to rule against Biden’s victory.

The rebuttal was quite sharp, basically accusing McConnell of acting as a “ceremonial” performer. And this was only the beginning of the action today in Congressional session. Who knows what would have popped up out of the hopper, as the day wore on and the nation watched?

Vice-President Pence—castigated by Trumpers as a betrayer—actually declared he would preside over an open Joint Session of Congress and allow full speeches re vote fraud, from states in which one senator and one congressional legislator filed objections to rubber-stamping certification of the election.

But that process was side-tracked by the people breaking into the Capitol building.

Instead, we now have incessant media coverage portraying the million protestors in Washington and Trump as destroyers of the nation and “all the values we stand for as Americans…”

I’ve read and seen reports of Antifa members (from Philadelphia and Tempe) being inside the Capitol building. A close-up photo of one of the protestor’s wrists shows a hammer and sickle tattoo. There is a claim that Antifa members were bused into DC a day before the rally.

Obviously, if the assault on the Capitol building was a false flag, all the blame cascading down on Trumpers paves the way for Biden and his handlers to carry out even more draconian measures on the American people, under the rubric of National Security—piled on top of the COVID lockdowns.

The short attention span of television viewers shifts further away from the violent Antifa riots in US cities over the past six months.

And whereas media portrayed Antifa riots as “largely peaceful disturbances,” we can look forward to months of pompous posturing about Wednesday’s events in DC.

Biden will be “the sane president” who restored peace and order.

Trump resisters who refuse to acknowledge Biden’s election will be characterized, over and over, as dangerous lunatics.

For the next 20 years, media will play up Wednesday, January 6, 2021, as the dark day America almost broke apart. You can bet a few dozen production companies are already editing footage for “stunning, award-winning” documentaries.

Democrats are feeling a burst of confidence that Trump’s career as a politician is over—since he will forever be linked to “The Insurrection of January 6.”

In their eyes, this is far better than a physical assassination.”  End of extracts – emphasis added.  Click here to read entire article.

Finally….

I have to say this, without any hesitation or equivocation:  I will not recognise Joe Biden as the USA President. Not that he’ll lose any sleep over my decision, over which I did not agonise…  I am trying to think of the best “nickname” to use but can’t get past “The Thief”/ plural (The Thieves) when referring to the VP as well.  If you’ve got better suggestions, let’s hear them but keep within the bounds of Catholic modesty – i.e.  no crudities, no matter how tempting.
