Many are asking today, Just what is going on in the United States? Racial tensions like this haven’t been seen since the days of the Civil War. It would appear, by the type of rhetoric being used, that an all out “cultural war” is now underway and is beginning to show signs of violence and strategies of anarchy in action.
Over the last few months we’ve seen protests erupt in cities across America that have resulted in people damaging property, getting arrested, becoming injured, and even being killed while exercising, what some claim to be, freedom of speech. Seattle, Dallas, Baltimore, and of course Charlottesville and Boston, have all been locations of displays of what seems to be highly suspected and purposeful anarchists working an agenda of destruction and mayhem to delegitimize the “American Idea” of true freedom and liberty. Many are asking, Why is this happening?
Why are the anti-fascists groups who claim they are promoters of peace and harmony coming to these populist protests with their faces covered, armed with weapons, and purposefully intimidating pro-nationalist protesters and law enforcement personnel? There appears to be something else here at work. Some of these “anti-fa” groups are defacing, vandalizing, and even destroying many historical monuments, but uniquely enough not touching Marxist statues, which are just as vulnerable––why do you think that is?
In this session of Web-chat, Bill sits down with Pastor Adrian Davis, from Ontario, Canada, to discuss some of these idiosyncrasies and what appears to be an obvious double standard. In recognizing this, they attempt to put some context into these observations as they explore what appears to be the real target behind all this confusion and violence––and frankly, it’s a very disturbing consideration that does demand one to take heed regarding this siege to delegitimize the “Idea of America.”
