With the current events of our time, is it really surprising what is unfolding? The left and the right going at it is not surprising in the least to me. You kick a dog long enough, that dog is going to bite you. You label someone as something else, you create a division with that label. It’s Us vs. Them. I even mentioned this back in December.
Both sides are wrong. Both sides are of the same coin. Change the hats, the shirts, the labels, and you can’t tell them apart.
I’m sitting here watching it all unfold and I’m a little surprised that others are shocked and outraged. Really? You honestly didn’t see this coming? Talk about burying your head in the sand. This has been a long time coming, the only real surprise for me is that it took this long to actually show up.
It’s only going to get worse from here kids. You’ve just witnessed the beginning. You reap what you sow. You’ve been warned.
The only question for me is, “When does it stop?”
You tear down one monument, statue, etc., in the name of whatever ideology you subscribe to, where does it go from there? Where does it stop? What is ok to destroy and what is not ok to destroy? Are books next? Videos? Movies? Buildings? Established ways of living? People themselves?
I’m re-writing a quote that came from WWII. You know the quote, and if you don’t look it up, it’s easy to find.
“First they came for the Nazi’s and I said nothing, because I wasn’t a Nazi. Then they came for the Communist’s, and I said nothing because I wasn’t a Communist. Then they came for the Conservative’s and again I said nothing because I wasn’t a Conservative. Then they came for the Liberal’s. And again I said nothing because I wasn’t a Liberal. Then they came for me. And no one spoke out because there was no one left to speak for me.”
Words to heed. You’ve all been warned.
