The constitutional republic and my sworn oath of 41 years to uphold and defend the United States Constitution.
Black lives, brown lives, yellow lives, red lives and white lives matter. In fact, ALL LIVES MATTER, period. Everyone should be treated with equal respect regardless of race, age, sex, or sexual orientation.
I do not support the front organization that calls itself Black Lives Matter. This organization has joined forces with ANTIFA. Together they have promoted and participate in recent destructive rioting and looting in American cities. Those in leadership of ANTIFA, those who are funding ANTIFA and those politicians who allow ANTIFA to riot uncontrolled should all face the Federal charge of insurrection.
Dr. King supported a world of integration and inclusion. He believed, as I do, that a person should be judged on the content of their charter, not the color of their skin.
Malcom X gave a message of separation and division. He stated whites were the devil. His was a message of hate.
The organization Black Lives Matter, in philosophy and words, follows the message of Malcom X.
The leadership, Alicia Garza and Patrisse Cullors, openly declare they are trained Marxist and that Opal Tometi is in agreement with their philosophy.
Simply stated, Black Lives Matters is a communist front organization. Their stated goal is to bring about revolution. Allied with ANTIFA they are attempting to foster a communist revolution within the United States under the false guise of racial justice.
For those claiming to support Black Lives Matter in Comstock, Richland and Marshall, how will you react when BLM/ANTIF is marching down your streets, as they are in the suburbs of Portland and Seattle?
Will your white virtue signaling make you safe in your own home?
In the 7th grade I learned the lesson that you stand up to bullies. My experiences in the real world outside the United States is you give the communists no quarter because once they seize power you will be given none. Re-education, forced labor or organ harvesting are the faiths that await you under a communist regime. Without the United States of America maintain the bulwark of Freedom the world will become a very dark and dangerous place.
