Tom Kurzeja lives in Darnestown, Maryland. Mr. Kurzeja is responding to Marc King’s post, “The Insurrection Act And A Stolen Election.”
I don’t think any sane, reasonable person wants to start shooting other Americans over the election. However, we’ve not seen a lot of sane, reasonable behavior from the America-hating left.
What’s happened in this year’s election is unconscionable on many levels. Equally unconscionable is the tolerance that ordinary citizens have shown for the result, because it was their preferred outcome.
Election integrity facilitates the peaceful transition of power, a foundational principle for the preservation of peaceful western societies.
We saw the unrest caused by the left during 2016’s legitimate election; what should the left now expect from conservatives with this illegitimate election? The horrific conduction of the election was topped off with a giveaway of many, many billions of American dollars to “foreign aid.” It’s almost as if Joe Biden’s Ukraine money laundering gambit was a test run, and now that the bad actors have worked out the kinks, they’re franchising it around the planet. Egypt, Sudan, and even the Ukraine are now well-funded money washers for a select few politicians whose corruption knows no bounds.
We have a flaming constitutional crisis of a magnitude not seen since the beginning of the Civil War. Add to that mess the notion that President Donald Trump still has a narrow pathway to re-election through an objection to the Electoral College results filed by a Republican Senator, and this country is a powder keg with a lit fuse.
As a military veteran, I understand Mr. King’s desire to not, in his words, “turn Gaithersburg into Mogadishu.” What he fails to recognize is that Democrat-run cities around the country are already more dangerous for Americans than any war zone on the planet.
More Americans die in Chicago, Los Angeles, and a half dozen other Democrat hellholes than in active foreign combat zones every day. Mogadishu is here, created and maintained by lawless urban Democrats. Democrats are not content to maintain their hellish fiefdoms and leave conservatives to live in peace separately. Their ambition is to export the dystopias they’ve created to suburban and exurban America, and bring troublesome conservatives who value their freedoms to heel.
Don’t believe me? Look no further than the actions of Gavin Newsom, Andrew Cuomo, Gretchen Whitmer, Kate Brown, Tom Wolf, and Phil Murphy. They’re killing their entire states. Sprinkle in some Lori Lightfoot, Bill DeBlasio, and Ted Wheeler, and you’ve got a formidable organization, at state and local levels across the country, coordinating efforts to restrict our God-given freedoms, while providing free rein to any group with which they find common cause; without exception, domestic terrorists calling themselves “progressive groups” such as BLM and Antifa, whose stated goals are to dismantle our society. And they’ve been hard at work.
I don’t need to show you the “mostly peaceful” riots, as described by a CNN reporter (video above) while a city block burned behind him. It is not we, conservatives, who are creating Mogadishu in this country. Mogadishu has existed here for years, in places like Camden, New Jersey, the south side of Chicago, Detroit, and Los Angeles. The treachery of Democrat political machines has known no bounds this year.
With the Democrats’ ambition to multiply and expand their misery outside its current boundaries, we conservatives must be vigilant. We must resist this intrusion into our communities.
Mr. King stated that his oath never expires. Every true veteran believes that. But he dodges. We took an oath “to defend the Constitution of the United States against ALL enemies, foreign and domestic.”
The domestic enemies of the Constitution now include homegrown terrorist organizations – BLM, Antifa, et al – as well as other individuals in elected office ignoring the Constitution to act and rule at their whim. We must resist them, and we must demand from them and their benefactors a return to a lawful, ordered society. Otherwise, they will create the Mogadishu that neither Mr. King nor I wish to create or live in. If we allow that, we’ll have no choice but to defend our communities here with the same ferocity and resolve we showed when we defended communities overseas.
