Blessed are the peace makers.
Peaceful protesting is an American right. No one objects to peaceful protesting. PEACEFUL!!
But while we sleep, dangerous factions are at work in our cities and two cities in particular are in my thoughts today. I’ve been in both cities and have valued my time there. Past leaders made them thrive and kept them safe.
How are the peaceful citizens, the law-abiding citizens of Seattle sleeping these days? Their mayor, Jenny Durkan is certainly asleep and dreaming. She thinks it’s the summer of love. That felons and anarchists deserve some Seattle real estate to occupy, burn, demolish, and loot. You can bet that her home will remain safe from them and from burning or looting. Her home won’t become their summer city of love. She has good security and knows how to hide.
In Portland, OR . . . the same dreamscape is at work. City leadership and mayor Ted Wheeler coddle the worst segment of society, regardless of how it affects other law-abiding residents. Their choice is to surrender city buildings to the mob. Allow violence to consume neighborhoods. Abandon federal buildings to anarchists. What’s in the water that these misguided, inept leaders in OR are drinking?
ANY city that condones violence and behavior of rampaging mobs and anarchists is not a city that can survive. Leaders who reward wickedness and abandon any concern for the security of their citizens forfeit their right to lead.
During this pandemic of rage, both mayors (and the Gov. of OR) tested positive for Stupid. This goes for Gov. Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio too in NY. They’ve single-handedly ruined the state and City of New York.
So when will the citizens of these besieged cities demand impeachment proceedings of cowardly leaders? When will these leaders be held to account as they project their hatred at the President and federal authorities who are protecting the peoples’ property?
Time to elect leaders who love America, who love our historic cities, and value the citizens they SERVE. Find brave, patriotic civil servants who will not cower or kowtow to mobs and violence. Men and women who want the best for their city and nation. Peacemakers who lead from strength and righteousness. For your children and grandchildren.
Don’t give position or power to those who are asleep while the city burns. Take away the privilege to SERVE you from those who don’t care about you but instead encourage the worst dregs of humanity to harass, attack, rampage and pillage. The shrill voices of anarchy have a right to be heard, but they have no right to harm or destroy. Their father is a spirit that seeks to rob, kill, and destroy. A spirit of rebellion against order and the rule of law.
And please pray that God bless and reunite the United States of America. It’s in our collective best interest.
