I am continuing to share my notes from the reading of The Big Lie, by Dinesh D’Souza.
Notes from pages 16-22
During the Trump administration you remember that there were showdowns between the Left and Trump supporters. And the Left viewed themselves as waging an anti-fascist struggle. They called themselves anti-fascists or Antifa.
The Berkeley protesters were also antifa. But they are the ones who were blocking speakers from speaking on a campus. Likewise, Antifa was harassing Trump supporters, burning things, and engaging with the police. But Antifa was saying that they are anti-fascist. Yet they are acting as fascists; and the ones they are accusing as fascists (Trump and Trump supporters) are relatively peaceful. Hence what they are doing is a lie.
On violence. The Left says that Trump’s agenda is based on violence: the violence of wall building, the violence of deportations, the violence of being against abortion. This is a lie in itself. These things are not violent actions. They are all things that keep the peace.
The Left use violence as a political strategy. They say fascism (which they accuse the Right of) can only be stopped by physical force, violence.
The Left say that they (the anti-fascists) will stop the fascists (the Right) from speaking. They will give them no platform for debate. No free speech for the fascist Right. Of course, this is an inverted lie, a Big Lie.
Like Hitler has said of the Jews, the Left says they should destroy the fascism (of the Right) by any means, or else they (the Right) will destroy them. Here again we see the inverted lie.
Herbert Marcuse, a Berkeley professor, “argued that in order to defeat Nazism in America, it was necessary for the Left to use Nazi tactics” (p. 22). Marcuse here is calling the conservative Right “right-wing fascists.” He said, “The Left should repress them, shout them down, even beat them up or kill them” (p. 22).
I heard the most interesting and revealing interview of Michele Bachmann the other day regarding what happened on January 6th at the Capitol. I’m not 100% convinced of everything she claims, but it seems to make sense to me, and I think it needs further investigation. I organized my notes in 10 points.
Michele Bachmannon the Scene
Michele Bachmann, a former Minnesota Congress woman and a 2012 presidential candidate, was on the scene at the Trump Rally and also in the Capitol. She came to pray and to speak to a few high-ranking government leaders (like Mike Pompeo). While she was in the capitol the riots started, and she said she was so surprised to hear some people say that it was Trump supporters that were the rioters. According to what she had observed, Trump supporters were “the nicest people.” Many of them came mainly to pray. What she experienced among Trump supporters was an atmosphere of happiness; “like a happy family reunion.” She said, there were no unhappy or mad people; no shouting or swearing.
Rioters were a Professional Group
Bachmann said, the agitators that stormed into the Capitol were not Trump Supporters. They were professional people; the same people who showed up at Minneapolis and Portland to riot.
Identity Theft by Imposters
The premise of the left and the media (and now most people) is that Trump followers, especially Christians, did the rioting. But it was imposters, according to Bachmann, that put on Trump clothing that did the rioting. She said (and I agree) that it is a case of “identity theft.” They stole President Trump’s identity and his follower’s identity. They made them to look like terrorists. But none of that is true. The media, even Fox News, gave a false narrative. Bachmann said, “What they were saying was not what I observed.”
Some Good People Were Swept Up in The Excitement
Bachmann said that besides the destructive and violent agitators, there were also a few good people who came to the Trump rally that got swept into what was happening. They actually went into the Capitol but did not do violence. This was the testimony of one man who said that he went into the capitol but tried to be respectful.
Weeping Trump Supporters
Bachmann witnessed that there were some Trump supporters that were weeping. They were there mainly for the purpose of prayer and fasting for America, and they suddenly were realizing that they were being used. Their identity was being stolen just as their votes were stolen.
A Planned Coup
Leading up to the tragic events, there was nothing but prayer and peacefulness. Then suddenly, out of nowhere, a group of agitators stormed toward the Capitol and broke in. In Bachman’s opinion, it was a planned coup. And there seems to be evidence to prove it: 1) The agitators in some places were let into the Capitol, by Capitol police, and were not stopped. They did nothing to stop them. 2) They even opened the gates to let them in (very odd). 3) They knew how to get to Pelosi’s office. Bachman testified that it is very hard to find places in the Capitol if you have never been there before. It seems obvious that they had it all mapped out. 4) It seems apparent that the agitators had been planning this and that they had help from some people (on the left) who knew their way around.
Purpose of the Coup
It is apparent to me that the left is desperate to try to discourage conservatives to be involved with Trump and in politics. Some supporters are being told by others, “Will you now renounce Trump.” Also, I think the left has been given a poor image because of the riots in Minneapolis and Portland and other cities. And so, this attempt at identity theft is what they dreamt up to even the score—to make conservative Christians look bad. How sad is that?
The Hypocrisy of the Left
The left described the terrible riots in Minneapolis and Portland as “peaceful protests.” But now that conservatives are blamed for what happed at the Capitol, everything is reversed. Nothing was peaceful. And all Trump supporters are now being blamed by the media for the riots—all 75 million of us.
What is Ahead for the Country? None of it is Good.
I was just informed through Bill Koenig’s Eye View at watch.org, as he cited the Gateway Pundit, that “at least one bus load of Antifa goons infiltrated the Trump rally…” That makes a lot of sense to me. I would guess that many of those people who were scaling the White House walls and breaking windows and entering the white house were paid Antifa goons—paid big money by billionaires like George Soros. They were hired to discredit Donald trump and his Presidency, and also in an effort to put a black mark on him in order to dissuade people from supporting him in the future.
According to a former FBI agent on the ground at the US Capitol, at least one bus load of Antifa goons infiltrated the Trump rally as part of a false flag operation.
Chaos erupted at the US Capitol building on Wednesday after Vice President Mike Pence announced he would not block Biden’s electors.
Trump supporters are being blamed for all of the violence and chaos but according to a former FBI agent, Antifa has infiltrated the Trump rally.
Via investigative reporter Paul Sperry: Former FBI agent on the ground at U.S. Capitol just texted me and confirmed that at least 1 “bus load” of Antifa thugs infiltrated peaceful Trump demonstrators as part of a false Trump flag ops
This passage (2 Peter 2:1-9, at the end) has brought me great comfort in these evil times, knowing that God will rescue and comfort me, but that He will not allow the wicked to go unpunished!
For the last few years, since I have been more tuned in to political things, and paying more attention to what is happening in the world, and particularly in America, I have been grieved and distressed by all the evil going on. It seems like the entire democrat party was, and is, out to get the President with a variety of unjust practices, including an unjust impeachment. Such hatred and lawlessness and lying—particularly by Adam Shift, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Jerry Nadler. And such underhandedness and corruption and evil scheming by the former president Barack Obama, and also by the Clintons. Then we have seen the continual attacks by Antifa and BLM and all that they stand for: their supporting of homosexuality and queers and transgender folks, and their attacks against the traditional family and against the police.
And now, in just the last few days we have seen an election falsified, and the entire democrat party and all the media will not admit to it. And this for me is the most egregious, because if it isn’t corrected, we could see America fall in no time at all. With what we see now in the Democrat party, how evil it has become, in no time at all we will lose our constitution to liberalism; and lawlessness and homosexuality will be what is normal. Hence, all that was good about America will be gone. Rioting, lawlessness and lasciviousness will take its place. It will be just like the ancient world before the flood and like Sodom and Gomorrah.
But after reading 2 Peter 2:1-9, I feel so much better. This passage gives me perspective and assures me with comfort that He will save me out of it all, and will keep all the unrighteous ones like prisoners, awaiting their final eternal prison. Yes, this passage reminds us of how God did not spare the fallen angels, or the evil ancient world, but destroyed all of them, except Noah and his family in the great flood. And then later He destroyed the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and turned them into heaps of ashes. Thus, He made an example of what will happen to ungodly people.
My contentment and comfort now is realizing that just as God rescued Lot out of Sodom, and how at the same time He rightly judged the evil ones, He will surely do the same for America. He will comfort the righteous and will bring His righteous judgment on all who are evil—on all those that I have been grieved over. Yes, none of those who plotted evil will get away with it.Their punishment awaits them!!
Here is the passage I have been talking about:
2 Peter 2:1-9
But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves. 2 And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of the truth will be maligned; 3 and in their greed they will exploit you with false words; their judgment from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep. 4 For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to pits of darkness, reserved for judgment; 5 and did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a preacher of righteousness, with seven others, when He brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly; 6 and if He condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to destruction by reducing them to ashes, having made them an example to those who would live ungodly thereafter; 7 and if He rescued righteous Lot, oppressed by the sensual conduct of unprincipled men 8 (for by what he saw and heard that righteous man, while living among them, felt his righteous soul tormented day after day with their lawless deeds), 9 then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from temptation, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment for the day of judgment.
If you have been hearing that the George Floyd protest is more that just local concerned people, here is proof. I read today in my morning newspaper, the Pioneer Press, how Federal authorities in Minnesota caught up with two young men, Michael Solomon from New Brighton, MN, and Benjamin Teeter from North Carolina, who are part of a radical anti-government terrorist group called Boogaloo, and were operating within the George Floyd protest group, or, you might say that they were piggy backing off of the group.
Generally speaking, this group is a loosely organized anti-government movement with the goal of starting a second American Civil war. And their method is to invade protest groups—wherever they find them—and then stir up the group to riot.
According to Wikipedia, their beliefs are not all the same. Some of them absolutely condemn racism, but others within the same group are white supremacists and Neo-Nazis. So, it seems that somehow, they have managed to unify under the banner of violence against American authority—though many ironically carry the American flag. I guess they have a different idea of what America should be.
Of course, Boogaloo is just one example of similar anti-American government groups. There are many others, maybe hundreds (with Black Lives Matter and Antifa being the most well-known), who likewise use peaceful protest groups as their base of operations; and then they will use various means to stir up protest members to riot: by vulgar speeches, throwing rocks and bricks, fire bombs and even by shooting guns.
Okay, back to the newspaper article. Apparently, these two young men (thugs) who are in this crazy Boogaloo group were interacting with an individual during the aftermath of the George Floyd incident concerning what their goals were, etc., and this individual later reported them to the FBI. Then about a month later an FBI person (or persons) posing as members of Hamas managed to get much more information from them. (I imagine that they were boasting about all they were planning to do and were not too cautious about who they were talking to.)
Here is what the FBI found regarding these two young men:
They espouse a violent ideology and plan to overthrow the US government.
They have views aligned with those of Hamas and they expressed an interest in being mercenaries for Hamas.
In addition to carrying firearms, they possess large quantities of ammunition.
They talked about committing acts of violence against police.
They have a desire to destroy government buildings and monuments. They said they were thinking of blowing up a courthouse in Minnesota, and also thinking of killing certain politicians.
They expressed an interest in making automatic weapons for the group.
They have a desire to attack Israel and also US soldiers.
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.
Though there were, to begin with, somewhat peaceful protests because of the unjustifiable death of George Floyd, it seems apparent now in Minneapolis (and also now in other cities), that outside professional riot groups have come in to stir up riots and looting. President Trump largely blames antifa, but Minnesota officials blame white supremacists.
Well, who ever it is, they are bad. Both groups are evil. Some are saying that white supremacists are conservative Christians. But that is dead wrong. Christians, true Christians are good not evil. True Christians love people—both white and black people. A Christians is a following of Christ. And Christ came to love all people, and He gave His life to save all people. A white supremacist hates all people but his own race. He is totally selfish.
The antifa movement is a militant, left-wing, political activist movement, that hold ideologies such as socialism, communism, etc. I suppose in this case they would be trying to stir up things so as to later point the finger at Trump for failing to act. Or they may be trying to stir up trouble in order to later call on a global government to save the day.
But like I said, they are both evil groups and I don’t think they would have any trouble working together. Evil loves company.
