The New Normal: Rioting, Anarchy and Lawlessness in America

Jul 23, 2020

Mob rule and anarchy has become the new American normal:

As an American, I am utterly grieved and outraged at what I see happening in places where Democrat mayors and governors are in charge. So many of them are hating on the police, cutting their funding, even seeking to eliminate them altogether – in good measure because these Democrats so hate Trump and want to bring him down.

And at the same time they are not just allowing but promoting rioting, arson, anarchy and lawlessness in the cities. Look at Portland. Look at Chicago. Look at Seattle. Look at New York. Look at Denver. The list of Democrat strongholds goes on and on. As does the chaos, the mayhem, and the rising death toll.

Cities are burning to the ground and people are being murdered, even little children. Yet all that these demonic Dems can do is blame Trump and say that they will not allow the police and other law enforcement agencies to do their job. They clearly prefer chaos and anarchy to law and order.

To be honest, these dastardly and reprehensible political leaders make me sick, and they will one day stand before their Maker and give an account. Hopefully the ordinary citizens will become so fed up with them that they will be kicked out at the next election – if not sooner.

Right now we have mobs running too many American cities – and we have Democrat leaders doing nothing to prevent this. Anarchy, mayhem and lawlessness are the new normal in too many places in the US right now. This is completely unsustainable. No country can last long with this happening.

And guess what: this is all nicely going to plan. This is NOT happening by accident. Marxists have always made clear their hatred of America and the West, and they have long told us how they plan to destroy all that we hold near and dear.

At first the Marxists ran with armed revolution and violence. But all the spontaneous workers’ revolutions that Marx taught would arise did not eventuate. So the Cultural Marxists came along and said that instead of outward revolution they would make use of inward evolution.

They still wanted the very same ends – but they came up with different means to obtain those ends. So they spoke of capturing the culture: of capturing the institutions of power and influence, such as the media, politics, law, even the churches. See more on this here: billmuehlenberg.com/2014/06/28/cultural-marxism/

And they have largely succeeded in this. Indeed, who are these Democrat mayors and governors who are pushing this violence and anarchy? Almost all of them are firm believers in the Marxist paradigm. Most hate America and the West and are using their influence within the system to drag it down.

So now the cultural Marxists and classic Marxists are working in tandem: the political leaders are sitting back doing nothing while the rioters on the streets are once again resorting to violence, confrontation and armed revolution. We now have the perfect storm: the deadly combination of external revolution and internal evolution.

Old guard Marxists and the newer Cultural Marxists are working arm in arm to bring down the United States of America. And we see the results everywhere: cities ablaze, businesses destroyed, police attacked, and innocent people being killed.

The examples of this are now countless. Recall how just the other day a woman who told BLM protestors that all lives matter was murdered! www.thesun.co.uk/news/12109716/family-jessica-doty-whitaker-black-lives-matter-indiana/

And just a few days ago conservative speaker Michelle Malkin had to run for her life while trying to take part in a pro-police rally in Denver. A violent, out-of-control mob would not allow the event to proceed, and things got real ugly real fast. As one write-up on this frightening incident puts it:

Conservative author and entrepreneur Michelle Malkin and other conservative activists were violently attacked by Antifa and Black Lives Matter supporters at a “Back the Blue” rally in Denver, Colorado, yesterday. The incident was captured on audio, and video footage showed a masked Antifa thug wielding a baton. Malkin says that the lead organizer of the rally was also attacked and beaten by an Antifa member wielding a longboard (a long skateboard). In a statement, Ken Cuccinelli, acting deputy secretary of the Department of Homeland Security called the violence “outrageous.” www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/07/20/michelle-malkin-others-assaulted-by-antifa-at-pro-police-rally-in-denver/

Thankfully Michelle and the others managed to get out of there alive, and her case is simply one of many. But because she is somewhat well known, let me stay with her story. She has just written about her experiences, and her piece is well worth quoting from:

The America you grew up in is not the America we live in now.

One nation under God? Ha.

Land of the free? Ha.

Domestic tranquility? Ha.

Equal protection under the law? Ha.

The right to bear arms? Ha.

Freedom of speech? Association? Peaceable assembly? Ha. Ha. Ha.

It’s not “socialism” or “communism” under which we suffer. Our dangerously chaotic, selectively oppressive predicament is more accurately described as “anarcho-tyranny.” The late conservative columnist Sam Francis first coined the term in 1992 to diagnose a condition of “both anarchy (the failure of the state to enforce the laws) and, at the same time, tyranny — the enforcement of laws by the state for oppressive purposes.”

The “criminalization of the law-abiding and innocent,” Francis expounded, is achieved in such a state through: “exorbitant taxation, bureaucratic regulation; the invasion of privacy, and the engineering of social institutions, such as the family and local schools; the imposition of thought control through ‘sensitivity training’ and multiculturalist curricula; ‘hate crime’ laws; gun-control laws that punish or disarm otherwise law-abiding citizens but have no impact on violent criminals who get guns illegally; and a vast labyrinth of other measures.”

The toxic combination of “pandemic panic” and “George Floyd derangement syndrome” has thoroughly destroyed the home of the brave. It is a paradise for the depraved and dictatorial.

Anarcho-tyranny is how hoodlums can toss statues into rivers with impunity, while citizens disgusted by Black Lives Matter street graffiti are charged with “hate crimes” — as David Nelson and Nicole Anderson in Martinez, California, were by a George Soros-funded district attorney two weeks ago.

Anarcho-tyranny is how rioters can shut down highways and byways on a whim without fear of arrest, while commuters trying to escape the window-smashing barbarians obstructing traffic are charged with “assault” — as poor Jennifer Watson of Denver, Colorado, was this week.

Anarcho-tyranny is how hordes of gay pride activists marching shoulder to shoulder can defy social distancing guidelines with gushing approbation from radical left-wing medical “experts,” while anti-lockdown and anti-mask mandate protesters are deemed public health menaces who now face snitch hotlines, fines, house arrest or jail time.

Anarcho-tyranny is how 1,000 black militia members can take over the streets in Georgia and point their guns at motorists as they demand reparations, while white citizen militia members in Idaho, Utah and New Mexico have been smeared publicly as racists and face injunctions for peacefully defending their neighborhoods.

She describes what she had to go through in the failed rally, and concludes this way:

On Tuesday morning, a Denver police union official called me to apologize for the department’s failure to protect those of us who tried to speak on their behalf. The “backlash” for defending our constitutional rights was too high a price to pay, he told me. Sorry.

So the message is loud and clear. When push comes to bloody shove in end-stage America, under the rule of the anarcho-tyrants, we, the law-abiding, are the enemy. Those in uniform sworn to protect and serve will turn their backs on us because their bosses don’t answer to the public. They protect and serve the mob. www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin

Yes, we see all over America anarcho-tyranny in action. Marxist rioters in the streets are being aided and abetted by Marxist mayors and governors. And when President Trump offers to send federal help to restore order and protect the innocent, these deranged leaders denounce him as a dictator! This will not end well.

A few weeks ago someone asked me if a new civil war might erupt in the US sometime soon. I replied by saying that it already has.

  • Very sad Bill.

    I have often asked this question to myself and you are well positioned to answer – why don’t those conservatives come here? You did. Things aren’t as bad here and we still have time and hope to reverse the decay now seen on the streets of US cities.

  • Thanks Edwin. I hear you, but a few replies. I actually came here because I am married to an Australian! But putting up the white flag of surrender and fleeing the US is not the answer. Concerned citizens, Christians and conservatives need to stand up and reclaim America from the anarchists and radical secular leftists. The country is certainly still worth fighting for.

    And Australia of course is quickly following suit with the US. There are plenty of Marxists and cultural Marxists here who want to see the same thing happening. So good people – wherever they are – need to stand up and be counted.

  • What sad times we live in. I pray for America and also that this full on attack doesn’t happen here in Australia.

  • Thanks Bill for update. Protesters are also trying to organize another march in NSW against govt directions and Israel has its protesters too, see https://worldisraelnews.com/watch-jerusalem-traffic-grinds-to-a-halt-as-protesters-take-to-the-streets/ Not as bad as US though.

  • Defund the police. Begs the question, who is the only group of people who would want a weakened “thin blue line” Answer: the criminal or would-be criminal. So it appears to me that those who are pushing the line must be criminals or would-be criminals. Who is organising this (after-all, it is organised crime) BLM is a militant wing (and fundraising wing) of the DNC. Who are the criminals organising and funding the DNC – the Clinton Foundation, Open Societies (Soros)? We know that Hilary is only an unconvicted criminal because her influence stretches to the control of the FBI and its leaders. Remember Comey? What Hilary Clinton did with her “unsecured Blackberry” was not illegal to her, but if anyone else did what she did they would be charged with a criminal offence. Anyway once stool pigeon Biden (himself a possible criminal given his part in “Obamagate” and Ukraine influence-peddling to protect his son) proves to be medically unfit for POTUS (should he win) an unelected VP who’ll be controlled by BLM and the Clinton crime family. And I don’t even trust the electoral process given the mail-out ballot issue and probable fraud.

  • Cancel culture is also alive and well here. I lost a church position on Monday after standing on God’s Word and our country of laws and rights. I had already turned in my notice to my current church. This is not only emotionally devastating for me, but financially as well. The devil is devouring more and more people and more and more churches.

  • Edwin, if the US falls, other free countries also will fall like dominoes and just as rapidly. Please be in prayer for us even as many of us have to go silent until the November election. My fear and praying for God to spare us is that no matter how the election goes, we haven’t seen anything yet.

  • Great article sir and you can add another reason for lack of agressive local law enforcement is the Ferguson effect..aka Hands Up Don’t shoot ! Again. Well done Sir

  • Bill, The description of America’s plight is perfect.
    As you stated, we are now in a civil war.
    An internal revolution is underway and those of us who want to keep the Constitutional government that has been the envy of the world seem to be unaware that the war is on!
    The surest way to lose a war is to concede by inaction. Your voice is so important. We need an awakening!

  • Bill, you started out saying the mobs are running all too many American cities and Democrat leaders are doing nothing to prevent this but concluded saying Marxist mayors and governors are supporting the Marxist rioters, and denouncing Trump for ‘tyrannically’ sending federal aid to restore order, and protect the public. While technically true it almost seems like a contradiction.

    It’s not as bad as reading elsewhere of the non-violent protesters who burn down buildings and assault law enforcement officers but … 🙂

  • Thanks Andrew. While some of these Democrat leaders are basically sitting back and doing nothing to stop things, and others seem more intent on condoning if not encouraging and spurring this on, the result in both cases is just the same: rioting, mayhem and murder. Both courses of action – or inaction – render these leaders guilty.

  • We’ve been in a cold civil war for decades maybe even more than a century. While it is getting hot whether is becomes a full blown war depends on if we have past the point of no return. Every conflict every struggle has one the point after which you cannot change course you are locked in to your destination. (The die is cast.) Personally I think we have past it and our only hope is for God to intervene as painful as it would be. The election will most likely be the watershed moment.

  • As you call it so clearly Bill, “Right now we have mobs running too many American Cities…”.

    I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio, U.S.A.
    And most swiftly the ‘statue molestation mob segment’ have demanded and received from a most willing, spineless, impotent city administration that the large namesake statue gift from, Genoa, Italy be removed from adorning Columbus City Hall. Whereby now as I write my report to you, stage two of this asinine assault is underway to find a less offensive name for this seat of Ohio State Government! I kid you not. I’m now living near Atlanta, Ga. and just heard from family back home that consideration is up for renaming Columbus: Flavortown!
    Sounds like the mindset of “strong delusion” right out of 2Thess. 2:10-12.

  • Yes it sure does Curtis.

  • As a USA based friend sent me of late after witnessing increasing unrest within USA. It was said in satire but very distressing in meaning. They no longer are feeling safe to venture out unless daytime.

    Woman calls 911
    911 responds – 911, can we assist you
    women responds – a man just broke into my house & he has a gun & I need the police.
    911 responds – sorry lady, but the police no longer are funded, but I can send a social worker out to assist but currently we don’t have enough to respond, but I am told training places will be increased in most universities & they will be trained within 4 years in cultural differences & anger management.
    From the women home – a scream & gun shot was heard.

    Sadly this tongue in cheek quip may not be far from the truth.
    I think an article appeared here of late, but i cant see these anarchists tearing down museums & statues based on evolutionary & naturalistic philosophy that claims certain ethnic & cultural groups are not as advanced on an evolution scale as others.

  • yes in some places they are sending essentially social workers for NONviolent calls. But how do you know a non violent call won’t turn violent?? then what?? hug it out?? hope the cops can rush over BEFORE real damage is done???
