Socialism’s Fire Arc Must Be Stopped – Trump Sees It

fireFirefighters know the moment of a fire arc, or backdraft.  The fire consumes all oxygen, then heat and pressure rise, black smoke pours from openings, and an explosion ensues. All outside is pulled in.  Political revolutions are just like that.  They start hot, contained, then explode.  We are approaching a political fire arc right now – and Trump sees it.

As pressure rises, protests get violent, organizations are infiltrated, and cities shaken night after night by mobs, riots, and attacks on police, something unfamiliar but discernible is happening.

More than 200 cities have been affected and violence continues.  15 states and 25 cities have deployed National Guard.  In Washington DC alone, 522 arrests through August 29th.  Even network news cannot hide the continuing violence.  See. e.g.,  https://abcnews.go.com/US/police-declare-riots-protests-turn-violent-cities-nationwide/story?id=71994983.

A Detroit News commentator put a fine point on it, referring to Portland, Oregon. They have “suffered through more than 80 consecutive nights of violent riots … Enough is enough.”  The commentator continued: “These endless riots are not saving Black lives. They are destroying lives. They are destroying businesses. They are rending the social fabric of the entire city.” And, one might add, of our country. See, https://www.detroitnews.com/story/opinion/2020/08/25/opinion-americans-want-peace-not-portland-riots-perverse-leadership/5632753002/.

If initial unrest was about reviewing police tactics and correcting racial bias, that is no longer the case – has not been for months.  What we are facing – and most Americans know it – is anti-democratic violence, coordinated by covert organizations, aimed at fanning resentment, boosting the fire’s heat and reach, moving into suburbs, avoiding accountability, claiming protest rights.

Worse, this fire is fed by other political forces.  While voices of violent Marxism grow – key Democrats stay silent, mouthing the need to defund police, calling destruction peaceful, hoping mass chaos will be blamed on their national political nemesis, Donald Trump.

Americans are not stupid.  Moreover, they get smarter each day.  Most see this rolling violence is not occurring in a vacuum, no longer about racial justice.  Many perpetrators are white.  Marauders and socialist infiltrators have been given running room by left-leaning politicians.

Americans realize we need strong leaders – who will draw lines, separating peaceful protesters from violent rioters, earnest souls from anti-American socialists, lawbreakers from police.  They realize – after the conventions – that one party is letting this happen, the other resolved to stop it.

This is where truth begins to wash over people.  Like firefighters in a blaze, suddenly made aware of an impending “fire arc,” Americans are sitting up and taking notice.  They are right to do so.  Words of a columnist are not important – but listen to history.

Karl Marx laid it bare: “There is only one way to shorten …convulsions of the old society and bloody birth pangs of the new – revolutionary terror.”  If “terror” is too strong, try this. “My object is to dethrone God and destroy capitalism.”  Too strong?  Try this: “Keep people from their history and they are easily controlled.”

Marx thought morality was irrelevant, and power everything.  So do modern Socialists. “Communists everywhere support revolutionary movement against the existing social and political order … They openly declare that their ends can be attained only by forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions.” Sounds a lot like … Portland, doesn’t it?

What we are seeing – to be honest – is an amalgam of disappointed protestors who wanted reform, irrational anti-Trump activists, and – most dangerously – a source of “fire arc,” Democratic socialists, avowed Marxists, and aspiring Communists willing to upend America.

This is what President Trump, Senate and House Republicans are fighting to stop.  Reelecting Trump gives America a chance to avoid “fire arc,” a leap of violence into suburbs and beyond.

While it may sound trite to say old line Democrats would not recognize their party, it is true.  They would have no time for this life-rupturing, indefensible violence.  So, one last quote.

Said Martin Luther King: “Violence, as a way of achieving racial justice, is both impractical and immoral.”  He explained: “It is impractical because it is a descending spiral, ending in destruction for all” and “it is immoral because it seeks to humiliate the opponent rather than win his understanding; it seeks to annihilate rather than to convert.”

That is what socialism and communism do.  They annihilate because they cannot convert.  No informed population swaps freedom and prosperity for despotism and federal subjugation.  No one in their right mind chooses violence over law.  Said King: “Violence is immoral because it thrives on hatred rather than love.” That is why we oppose it.  That is why Trump opposes it.  That is why we can give no quarter to an impending “fire arc.”

“Americans aren’t stupid”–needs a qualifier “some.” Certainly the idiots who parrot “Black lives matter’ and inject it into sports ARE stupid. ALL lives matter, including–but not exclusively–blacks. And burning down black-owned businesses and putting blacks out of work is not HELPING any blacks. Why don’t these pampered black athletes, with their multi-million dollar contracts, start a large scholarship fund to get poor blacks (latinos, whites) out of FAILING public schools!! NO, they like to TALK but not ACT!

Democrats have dug themselves into a deep hole. Their solutions of a Marxist utopia just don’t pass the smell test. What’s the democrat response? Dig deeper!

Very well written piece, which hopefully a lot of folks will read and think about. You and I know full well what happens to countries where socialists or communists are allowed to either run unchecked or attempts are made by the political class to try and appease these dangerous elements in free societies. The movement always grows, gains more power, law and order and societal norms start breaking down and eventually, once the movement has achieved critical mass, the country is totally consumed and ceases to be free anymore. Which is why the people that live in these Democrat controlled… Read more »

Bernie Sanders needs to tell his ‘followers’ enough! See Project Veritus’ clip of his supporters talking about the tactic we’ve seen across the country. This terror has been hatched with very careful planning. We need to root out this weed of destruction and destroy it!

One of the clearest expostulations of what is happening now, and what will continue to happen, unless a critical mass of thinking citizens take action to forestall the Marxist onslaught we experience more and more each day.

Excellent article. It is amazing that we are all trying to understand what is going on in DEMOCRAT cities. We don’t understand because we don’t think that way. And, most of us just can’t believe that any Americans could think that way. Today’s DEMOCRATs are extremely frustrated. They have tried every thing possible to stop Mr. Trump from winning the office , from taking the office, and from presiding . They are frustrated because every time they try to stop him , they are beaten back. They cannot beat Trump on ideas . The DEMOCRAT party is out of ideas.… Read more »

ALL that the Dems, Marxists want is to Destroy America.
Sole reason.
LA CA has seen some protests but no heavy riots like Kenosha.
ID rioters funding, logistics, housing, pay alone
If they truck in riot supplies, they truck in rioters
apply nationwide
Lock & load time?
Will riots increase after 11-3?
Riots will increase if Biden win for sure X100.

They must be stopped with what ever force it takes. Enough is enough! They are not protesting they are destroying this great nation in the name of socialism.

President Trump is doing his best to end the violence being perpetrated by the Communists. He is doing the right thing whilst the ‘Democratic Communists’ are aligning themselves with traitors. Never would have thought that the Democrats would stoop so low; as to ‘hitch a ride’ with the Communists. The only thing the ‘Democrats’ have to say about the whole thing is: “People will do what they do.” Pelosi (Perhaps, the most imbecilic quote of all time!)

After hearing chants of Death To America on the news this morning, I want to know who is funding these riots. Is FBI looking into this? Where are rioters getting their funds to fight the police.
Someone needs to take over the police in these cities and tell the Chief, clean this mess up and I don’t care how you do it (within reason). People are SICK and tired of this crap.

This article was obviously written before the weekend when CNN actually said on air that the violence has to stop. They ignored the violence and even told their unenlightened viewers it was all just “peaceful demonstrations” until their dangerous hoax showed Biden’s numbers going down! So now their m.o. is telling everyone that it is all Trump’s fault. He incited the riots and now is not stopping them. Preposterous of course, but some of the fake news watchers will believe these lies. In all of my days I have never seen a more vile, lying bunch of rats like this… Read more »

Vicky Osterweil (author of ‘In Defense of Looting’) is so steeped in postmodern thinking that she does not know UP! Everything should be free? Free market economy is built on slavery? If she had ever actually BUILT something through the REAL SWEAT of her brow, there is no way she could not understand the concept of true VALUE and ACCOMPLISHMENT. But as a postmodern deconstructionist, she can make it through ad hominem rhetoric against the producers appealing to the destroyers who are too ignorant to get it that they’re being played like a cajun fiddle!!!

THERE IS A LESSON HERE. Pray for peace, prepare for war. Yes that’s right, the democrats are going to cheat
and try to steal the 2020 election. We will be at a cross roads, let them take the country over, or fight for our nation.
Personally I would rather fight for our freedom then let these leftist heathens dominate us and our children and grand children. Choice is yours, as the saying goes better dead than red. REMEMBER don’t feel bad about shooting
these leftists, because they won’t feel bad about killing you to achieve there goals.

Socialism = Forced Wealth Redistribution Wealth Redistribution: Steal the assets of some people and give those assets to others (often while keeping some for yourself). Morally taxes (as compared to voluntary contributions) are simply legalized stealing, but that’s still stealing which is immoral. Politically the socialists depend on wealth redistribution to achieve political power and once in power after the economic damage is done, they retain power by the force of the police state/military. Example: If I steal; $1,000 from some individual and then give $100 to nine different people (keeping $100 for myself) I just lost one vote from… Read more »
