Have you seen downtown Louisville? It is all boarded up due to rioters who broke windows. However, the media will not re-port it.
I received my July issue of Louisville Medicine today, July. 22, and was shocked that the con-troversy over Black Lives Matter and the law and order issue was presented from only one point of view.
There were four articles that were opposed to law and order, and NONE in support of it or our police force. Crucial facts were totally left out of all four articles!
Let me report a few facts from an article in the print version of the June 2020 issue of Whistleblower, a publication of World Net Daily. I believe this to be the most respected pro-American magazine in the country.
The article was by David Kupelian, an award-winning American journalist and author of three top selling books. His article in the print publication was also published online on July 15, entitled 2020: The Strangest and Most Crucial Year of Our Lives with sub-heading: Attempted coup, impeachment, pandemic, riots, election - where it's all heading.
In the online article Kupelian said, "Like a raging mega-forest fire started by a single spark, the Memorial Day death of George Floyd ignited a nonstop conflagration of violent social upheaval, arson, rioting, looting, assault, shootings, desecration of historic monuments, demands to abolish the police and release incarcerated criminals - and explicit threats from ringleaders to 'burn down' the American system."
I have seen a video on the internet from the body camera of the police; it showed that Floyd was so full of crack and fentanyl (found at the time of the official autopsy but never reported in the left wing media) that he was not able to stand up and staggered to the ground before he was ever touched by the police.
According to the article, statistics clearly reveal that the wide-spread abuse of Blacks is absurdly false. The article cites Heather Mac Donald, bestselling author of The War on Cops saying:
"A new study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences demolishes the Democratic narrative regarding race and police shootings, which holds that white officers are engaged in an epidemic of racially biased shoot-ings of black [sic] men. It turns out that white officers are no more likely than black [sic] or Hispanic officers to shoot black [sic] civilians. It is a racial group's rate of violent crime that determines police shootings, not the race of the officer. The more frequently officers encounter violent suspects from any given racial group, the greater the chance that members of that racial group will be shot by a police officer:'
According to an article in Forbes magazine entitled Homicides in Chicago Eclipse US Death Toll in Afghanistan and Iraq, the murder rate in Chicago between 2001 and Sept. 6, 2016 was 7,916, while the number of Americans killed in the Afghanistan war was 2,384 and in the Iraq war was 4,504.
The "protests" have, by and large, been engineered by openly communist revolutionary groups like Antifa, Black Lives Matter and Refuse Fascism.
There have been recent videos and television interviews with the Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors in which she proud-ly boasts of being a Marxist. "We actually do have an ideological frame;' she said. "Myself and Alicia [Garza);' her lesbian partner and BLM co-founder, "are particularly trained organizers - we are trained Marxists. We are super versed on ideological theories ... "
I quote the Whistleblower on line article: 'J\nother group, Refuse Fascism, which has held recent rallies in Los Angeles, Cleveland, Chicago, Tulsa and elsewhere across the U.S. [sic), was formed by the Revolutionary Communist Party. Led by open communists, it is headquartered in the RCP's Revolution Books store in Harlem. Major media organizations are, of course, well aware of all these radical, anti-American, revolutionary affiliations, but never breathe a word of it to the public, instead pretending that what Americans are witnessing amounts to grassroots protests of the death of a black [sic] man, widespread police brutality and a nation so profoundly racist it might have to be 'burned down' before it can be set right:'
Liberal university "boot camps" have produced hundreds of thousands of American-hating foot soldiers. In the onset of the last couple of months' upheaval, sound-minded observers tried to distin-guish between peaceful protestors and the mobs of rioters engaging in vandalism, arson, looting, assault, vicious attacks on property (including many Black-owned businesses), shootings and murder.
Then when the destruction of statues started, many felt we pos-sibly shouldn't celebrate Confederate Civil War heroes. Therefore, some essentially approved of the desecration of America's historical monuments. Unfortunately, city after American city saw statues of Christopher Columbus torn down as well as those of our great pres-idents from George Washington to Thomas Jefferson to Abraham Lincoln being defaced or destroyed.
Radicals in Portland tore down the statute of President George Washington that had been standing for almost I 00 years. Then they draped good ole' George in an American flag and set it aflame. The statue of Francis Scott Key (author of America's national anthem, The Star-Spangled Banner) was torn down and the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C. was defaced.
Still, some thought these historical figures did own slaves, and some began to somewhat understand the thoughts of the rioters. But, this somewhat of a "consensus" came to a halt when the riot-ers began to destroy Abraham Lincoln statues, the president who freed the slaves with the Emancipation Proclamation, and statues of General and President Ulysses S. Grant, who led the Union to victory during the Civil War.
The Shaw Memorial in Boston was destroyed by rioters, a mon-ument which honors the first all-volunteer Black regiment of the Union Army in the Civil War. And the kicker of them all is they tore down a statue of Hans Christian Heg, an abolitionist who died trying to end slavery. Why in the world would an American destroy monuments which honor anti-slavery heroes?
Finally, Shaun King, co-founder of Real Justice PAC, has called for the destruction of the statues of Jesus Christ and murals and stained glass windows with Jesus at all churches.
In light of what was said above, it is even more important to recognize that millions of young Americans have been indoctrinated in our nation's colleges and universities and now even in our high schools. Higher education has been "fundamentally" transformed which has produced an angry, arrogant, historically ignorant and morally confused generation.
Is it not important to allow both sides of a controversial subject to be told? Does truth matter?
