Why So Much Rioting?

We saw the riots start just a few days after George Floyd was killed by Derek Chauvin, a bad cop in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It began by protest marches, protesting abusive policeman against black people. Almost immediately Black Lives Matter got involved and then also members of Antifa arrived from many locations and paid by rich people like George Soros and others. But BLM and Antifa are not the only groups involved. There are many others.

Where did these radical groups get their start? What is their belief system, and what motivates them?  I suppose many are motivated by money, a lot of it. They work as professionals. And I suppose they are trained and educated too, but I don’t know where. I do know that they (the main trailblazers) have been around for a long time, as long as Communism has been around. They have had a plan for Russia, Cuba, China, North Korea, Vietnam, and the latest is Venezuela. And they also have a plan for the United States. And now it is happening. All the riots you see is part of it. It’s the tear down part. They plan to tear down everything: property, businesses, our system of law, our government, our families, everything.  And they plan to replace it with socialism, or Communism.

And what do they say is their belief system? Well, they say it is righteousness and justice for all. But you need to know that it is not true justice. They call it social justice. It sounds good, but it’s not. It is far different than true justice. True justice is a justice for each individual, measured by God’s righteous standard, according to His righteous law. But social justice is measured according to the ideas of socialism. It is a system that distributes all wealth and property evenly to all people no matter how hard they work for it. And that redistribution is done by force; all people will be forced to conform to societies demands. There is no individualism. All are the same. And there is no family as we know it, and no personal God. All is done for the state and for the good of all. I suppose in some way it may sound good, at least unifying; but as we know from how it is in Communist countries, it just doesn’t work and is very depressive—without freedom or individualism.

But what about those who demonstrate, who do it because they truly do care about black lives and about building a less abusive police department and a safer neighborhood? Well, I think there are many in that group, but unfortunately, most of them are being deceived and used and overrun by the radicals in BLM and Antifa and other groups who are rioting only for the cause of Marxism. And they are using African Americans to do their dirty work. And sadly, all rioters in the end will find themselves enslaved to the devil and guilty.

I want to urge anyone reading this to just stop rioting and submit yourself to God and to His holy word. Let the past go. Learn to forgive and move on. Believe that the system (our constitution) we have is good and was established by God and good men and women who believed God. And if one of your people is killed, pray for that family and for the one who killed him, and then commit it to God and to our system of law. Never take revenge into your own hands. God said, “vengeance is mine.” In the end all who are guilty will be punished.

The Minnesota Problem: A Failure at the Top

Rioters have burnt down many buildings in Minneapolis.
Rioters take over Target stores and do much damage.

It was so sad to see those few cops badly abuse and kill George Floyd. They all should have been arrested and charged for murder immediately. We all saw what happened. There was no doubt about what happened. They murdered that poor man.

We all were stunned and angered, and what Mayor Jacob Frey said about it didn’t help at all. He inflamed the situation. He immediately declared that it was racial hatred, white against black, when there was no evidence of it. So, before long protesting began. At first, it was about justice; but very soon an evil riotous nature rose up in many hearts and things quickly got out of control. What began as a protest for the killing of George Floyd soon turned into mindless rioting and venting of anger. Here are few relevant quotes:

Looting is not protesting. Burning down homes and businesses is not protesting.

The thugs are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd.

The rioters have nothing to do with George Floyd.

But why wasn’t the rioting stopped at the start? Why was it allowed to continue? Here are a few reasons:

Lack of Leadership. Minneapolis has a total lack of leadership: a very weak and radical left Mayor—Jacob Frey.

Criminal friendly policies. Progressive Democrats are incapable of keeping their people safe, because they have criminal-friendly policies that are pathetic, that are dangerous, and now we are seeing the results not only in Minneapolis, but in many other cities.

Lack of courage in fighting crime. Democrat Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey and Democrat Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz should resign because they gave up a police precinct. They told their police officers to flee a precinct and it burned down by the rioters. They both should resign and be replaced by somebody who can protect the people.

Other relevant quotes:

In Democrat cities you can get arrested for opening a business but not for looting one.

We need to fight and arrest the bad guys [not let them take over].

All the cities that are defended so poorly are run by liberal Democrats.

What we need to do?

We need to clearly see the situation as it is and do something. All Minnesotans need to see that they need better, stronger leadership. They need to kick out the Democrats who are clearly tearing the state apart. They need to elect good Republican leaders who care for the people, root out crime, and do a better job at governing.
