The following was taken from, The O’Reilly Update Morning Edition, June 2, 2020. The three point are directly from O’Reilly, followed by my comments.
PROTESTS ARE DRIVEN BY THREE GROUPS
- Sincere protesters. They are those that believe that America does not police the police and that allows constant law enforcement violence toward African-Americans. That violence is reflective of “systemic bios.” (This is what they believe)
- Criminals who want to steal. They use social media to pick out targets for destruction [and theft].
- Hard core anarchists. This group also uses social media to zero in on soft targets. This is the antifa movement, that is actively trying to destroy the fabric of America. They are ultra-dangerous people who burn and kill with no conscience.
In the first group, according to O’Reilly, notice that protesters are protesting police and police violence against African-Americans. And it seems to be pretty much toward all police. I think that is basically what they believe. And I agree that the other two group are also present and intermixed with the sincere protesters.
Most people I think would say that peaceful protests are okay, and even helpful. But what I have seen so far doesn’t come close to a peaceful protest (and that is partly due to the outside criminal groups and antifa). The signs and the constant chants will not result in peace. They only serve to stir up bitterness, anger, hatred and violence. I suggest that a peaceful protest should include gospel songs and prayers. And the protests must be directed only toward bad cops, or against evil and sin in general. If that can’t be achieved then I think is better not to protest at all. It would be better maybe to organize a group for constant prayer and fasting.
