Keith Wells commented on this blog yesterday, “I have heard that the antifa BLM terrorist are calling for the destruction of the Alamo.” As it turns out I heard the same thing. And that spurred a text string with LSP at the compound in Hillsboro, TX. LSP believes that the Alamo is safe for now. Maybe? My faith in the will of the government to protect anything is wearing thin.
I would have said the same thing about the Lincoln Memorial three weeks ago, but the nation was clearly too weak to keep the Antifa/BLM thugs from defacing that. I also heard on the news that BLM is calling for the demolition of the Washington Memorial and the Jefferson Memorial in the District of Columbia. Would the Park Police take a knee and allow that to happen?
There doesn’t seem to be a line anymore. When I visited the Alamo, it was stressed to me that it’s sacred ground. How could I not agree? There is a lot that is sacred to Americans, there has been a lot of blood and treasure expended to build what we have dared to build in what once was a trackless wilderness. Mayors, governors and chiefs of police seem thrilled to cede those national icons to anarchists, misfits, freaks and the aggrieved.
Is there a line left where the agents of hidden enemies who would destroy America can’t cross? I wouldn’t have thought that Texas would remove the Ranger statue at the Dallas Airport, but they seemed very quick to do that, anxious not to offend criminals, arsonists and looters. I mean, it’s TEXAS. If anyone would stand up to the mob, you’d think that it would be Texas.
I understand that in small town America, ordinary men and women have turned back anarchists. They have done it a lot in Northern Arizona. Inner city criminals are invited politely to return to the rock that they crawled out from under in the Phoenix ghetto or in Tucson. And they do because they’re outnumbered by armed men and women who will not tolerate their behavior. It is those citizens, who stand in front of the police. It’s not a race thing. It’s a crime thing.
During the Rodney King riots in Los Angeles, “rooftop Koreans” didn’t allow inner city looters to damage their businesses. There don’t seem to be many rooftop cowboys. Maybe they just let the insurance company handle it, knowing that the police are not inclined to intervene for fear of appearing “too tough” on the revolution.
