As the president pointed out in his latest press conference, the original group that was protesting the removal of the Robert E. Lee statue actually had a permit to assemble and did so peacefully. The leftist/Marxist radicals did not obtain a permit.
Now I don’t care who you are. If you assemble peacefully and conduct yourself accordingly – you can be Communist/Marxist radicals or fascist skin head, neo-Nazis. Who cares. But when you cross the line and descend into violence, it should matter who you are.
As Tucker Carlson pointed out on his Tuesday evening Fox News program, it evidently it does matter who you are, or with what wacko group you belong.
Many of us witnessed the outrageous behavior in Durham, NC, of the black lady climbing a ladder to place a lanyard around a Civil War soldier’s memorial. The crowd had no permit, no permission to even be there, much less the authority to pull down the statue, however offensive they all of the sudden thought it to be.
I say all of the sudden, because a lot of these statues have been on display for a century or so, and no one said boo. Not blacks or whites – left or right. Now we’re expected to believe that a mass consciousness awakening has spontaneously occurred like so many newborn puppies opening their eyes for the first time.
