Op-Ed by Daniel Bobinski
As I predicted in March, leftists and globalists used the emergence of Covid 19 to start a scorched-earth war against liberty. Little did we know how far they’d push it. Back in January I wrote on my blog that globalists don’t care if there’s bloodshed in America. Well, behold: Today we have riots in dozens of cities with both protestors and cops getting shot and killed.
Globalists are stopping at nothing to dismantle the liberty Donald Trump was advancing. This really is a war to them. They’ve spent multiple decades and trillions of dollars making arrangements to enact their plans, but the arrival of Donald Trump threw a wrench in those plans. Despite their best political efforts to oust the man, globalists were about to have their asses handed to them in the upcoming elections.
And so, they pulled the nuclear option.
Along the way they suckered a lot of presidents, prime ministers, and governors into playing a part in their scorched-earth war.
We started with 15 days to “flatten the curve,” but that turned out to be BS. Fifteen days became 30 … and then 45 … and then 60 … and some states don’t plan on re-opening until there’s a Holiday Inn built on Mars, complete with appropriate social distancing curtains in their free breakfast area. And a free (taxpayer funded) vaccine.
Using a formula devised by the Scientists Who Say “Ni!” governments deemed some businesses essential and others non-essential. “Essential” was any large business whose corporate leaders donated heavily to left-wing causes. From there, the Scientists Who Say “Ni!” got really creative. You couldn’t get a haircut, but you could get a baby cut out of your womb. You couldn’t stand in line with a few folks to buy garden seeds, but you could go to a supermarket with hundreds of people and stand in line with dozens of them to buy hummus & chips.
Did the globalists’ nuclear option work? You betcha. So far, more than 100,000 American businesses have permanently closed and 36 million Americans are unemployed. With unconstitutional actions that could not be quickly countered in court, globalists wiped out all of Trump’s successes and talking points in a matter of weeks. They didn’t just take us back three years; in some ways they took us back 70 years.
But globalists did more than wipe out America’s economy. They’re rejoicing because they got a twofer: The entire world’s economy is collapsing. Of course, they blame it on a microscopic virus and not the draconian over-reactions promulgated by their World Health Organization and the prodding of Mr. Bill “I finance the global medical establishment” Gates.
Of course not. That’s because globalists don’t give a rat’s patootie about your pain. In fact, having you be dependent on the state is exactly what they want.
A new problem and a new solution
Although the Covid-19-driven scorched-earth war on liberty did wonders to breathe life back into the globalists, there was a lingering problem. Globalists still didn’t have a good reason for anyone to vote FOR a Democrat who might supplant Trump.
Why was that a problem? Their Covid cover was fading. Summer was coming and flu bugs don’t do well in heat. Globalists needed another reason to maintain their grip on the populace, because TRUE scientists and doctors have been making loud noises lately about how unnecessary all these foot-on-the-throat measures have been.
And let’s face it: Being told to wear a mask when it’s 110 degrees or cancelling a sparsely attended outdoor event in the middle of an August heat wave over fear of spreading a virus is getting mocked by an increasing number of people. But if globalists loosened their grip too soon, a recovering economy would restore people’s hope — and Donald Trump might get re-elected. Can’t have that.
Tragically, the “foot on the throat” analogy became reality this past week. Some badge-heavy white cop decided to kneel on a black guy’s neck; the guy dies, and the whole event is captured on video.
My gut wrenched as I watched the video of George Floyd’s murder. Former police officer (and now jailbird) Derek Chauvin is a depraved individual and it’s right that he’s charged with murder. The fact that three nearby cops saw it happening and did nothing fully justifies their firings, but in my opinion, that’s not enough. I personally believe all three should be charged with accessory to murder, but I’m not going to riot about it.
If I lived in Minneapolis I’d have been among the first outside the police station demanding the killer’s arrest. But riot? That’s not my style.
Obviously, globalists think differently from me. Just like they parlayed Covid-19 into a way to trash liberty around the world, they jumped on the travesty of Floyd’s murder to instigate riots and continue America’s misery.
We don’t just have riots in Minneapolis. We now have riots in just about every major city. And these aren’t your garden variety, spur-of-the-moment riots. The riots are so organized, pallets of bricks are being dropped off in the streets hours ahead of scheduled “protests.”
USA Today reports that most blacks are seeking peaceful protests, and even George Floyd’s family is calling for the riots to end. But far leftwing agitator groups — such as Antifa — are hijacking the protests and turning them violent. Sometimes VERY violent.
Don’t misunderstand. Once the violence kicks into gear, people of all shapes, sizes, and colors are damaging property, beating others, and looting. However, evidence is amassing that these efforts are organized and instigated by those who want to see freedom-loving Americans on their knees.
As Valerie Richardson wrote in the Washington Times, “The one point on which state and local officials increasingly agree is that the unrest is no longer about George Floyd.”
We know for a fact that the perennial funder of all things un-American, George Soros, funded the Ferguson riots back in 2014. And while its too early to uncover a financial trail to our current riots, I wouldn’t put it past the weasel. Of course, the globalists are also getting help from the usual list of anti-American team players.
For example, Marxist Islamist — oops, that slipped out — Congresswoman Ilhan Omar used a slyly worded tweet to show her support of the rioters, and her 17-year old daughter has been actively asking people to help provide rioting supplies.
Because she cares. (Yes, she really said that.)
The daughter of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio was arrested for blocking traffic in an “unlawful assembly” where police cars were getting torched (Bill said he was proud of her). Jeremiah Ellison, a member of the Minneapolis City Council and son of Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison has declared he fully supports Antifa.
And if you want to know where Trump’s potential opposition stands on the issue, at least 13 members of Joe Biden’s staff have donated to get rioters out on bail.
Yes, globalists pounced on the Floyd murder to fan the flames of their very real war, but globalist soldiers don’t need uniforms nor a boot camp. Instead, globalists rely on legacy media to promote a narrative that gets people riled up, and they occasionally pay “community organizers” to funnel a few dollars to people who like throwing bricks and starting fires. Oh, and looting. They like looting, too.
The thing to remember is that many of the riot organizers are spurred on by globalists who want to keep America in as much pain as possible for as long as possible.
It’s the only chance they have at giving you a reason to NOT vote for Trump in the fall — because they certainly can’t give us any reasons to vote for them.
