BLM Should Learn A Thing Or Two From The Anarchists Of 1919

What do the anarchists of 1919 and the Marxists leading Black Lives Matter have in common? Quite a lot.

The shrill voices of those at the helm of Black Lives Matter have some Americans worried about what is to come as this summer of civil unrest unfolds. Are rioting, looting, and vandalizing statues a precursor to widespread barbarity and violence? If this is merely the leading edge of chaos and anarchy, American history may provide some valuable lessons for the radical left.

Almost exactly a century ago, the U.S. faced a similar period of civil unrest as far-left radicals, anarchists, and those who identified as communists initiated a violent uprising. This so-called Red Scare resulted in coordinated bombings at the homes of prominent people, including John D. Rockefeller and Attorney General A. Mitchell Palmer. At the time of the attacks, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and his wife Eleanor lived across the street from Palmer and had just passed the house when the bomb went off – close enough that body parts of the man who lit the fuse landed in their front yard.

The mayhem and madness were synchronized to detonate across the country at an appointed time. Explosions hit a church in Philadelphia, the homes of the mayor of Cleveland, a federal judge in Pittsburgh, an immigration chief – the list goes on and on. Accompanying each explosion was a pink flyer that read:

Quote

“War, Class war, and you were the first to wage it under the cover of the powerful institutions you call order, in the darkness of your laws. There will have to be bloodshed; we will not dodge; there will have to be murder: we will kill, because it is necessary; there will have to be destruction; we will destroy to rid the world of your tyrannical institutions.”

Fast Forward To The Summer Of 2020


Today, self-proclaimed Marxists have issued a stark warning: “If this country doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it.” That was a threat issued by the president of the Greater New York Black Lives Matter, Hawk Newsome, on a Fox News program in June. BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors can be heard on YouTube saying that she and a comrade “are trained Marxists … We are super versed on sort of ideological theory.”

While this latest far-left uprising has not elevated to the level of 1919 – or the 1920 bombing of Wall Street, which resulted in horrific carnage – one can ascertain that the language of this uprising is strikingly homogeneous to anarchists of the 20th century.

The looming question, of course, is: What did government authorities do to quell the Red Scare? For those who love liberty, the response is unappealing. The so-called Palmer Raids included arrests and detentions without warrants, illegal searches and seizures, and deportation of hundreds of people who were “suspected” anarchists. The Bureau of Investigation (predecessor to the FBI) under the leadership of a young J. Edgar Hoover wielded the Espionage and Sedition Acts as weapons against anyone they thought to be subversive. In all, some 3,500 people were held in detention and an estimated 10,000 arrested.

It’s worth noting that the exact opposite happens when radical leftists try to force their will on an entire populace. In both eras – the 1920s and the 2020s – anarchist actions provide authorities with the determination to restore civility by any means necessary. The ugly truth is that anarchy most often produces the unwanted stepchildren of government totalitarianism and tyranny. Backed into a corner, law enforcement uses such times to overstep its bounds. Ultimately, those who plan to “burn the system” will come to the inexorable conclusion that their actions only serve to permit government authorities to double down on law and order.

It’s more than likely that efforts to vastly change the American system of government will fail in 2020, just as they did in 1920. The Marxists at BLM should take note of these historical facts as they sally on down the road toward more violence.

We are much better armed now, also.

They might want to take a look at some other revolutions.

The French one started by beheading royalty and aristocrats and church leaders and ended up beheading its founders. 

The Russian revolution ended the lives of its useful idiots, leaving only Stalin.

Mao... PolPot... Castro... one after another, the revolutions got rid of the useful idiots. Last thing Castro or Stalin wants is someone unhappy with its share of the pie who is an accomplished and blooded revolutionary.

Mitchell Savage is a little looney but he has been ahead of everyone else on this warning of the useful idiots, enemy within, and pending civil war.  We shall see how it unfolds, I am not optimistic.  Really sad to see formerly conservative sites like Drudge and DailyBeast become liberal shitholes puking corona fear mongering and anti-Trump crap.

 

Just 6 months ago life was relatively simple and we were doing well.  Now we are buried in assholes destroying our way of life and their own.  They are certainly idiots but I have no use for them.  Who is pulling their strings?  I keep hearing soros blamed but I have not seen evidence.

Bring it on.

I would love a head to head fight with these pinko shitbags, unfortunately that is not what we will get.  This battle is getting fought in the media and we are getting our asses kicked and losing ground.  I don't understand their motive and who will really gain from this.  It is just going to be any anarchy shitfest with death and destruction.

except this time I’m not a helpless kid. Let the red menace come and we’ll do the devil’s dance. 

I'm with you on this one. My grandfather (and father) left Italy due to fascism.  My high school track coach always used to tell a story for home meets about a kid who is chased home by bullies, but turns and kicks their butts on his back porch.  I'm home.  There's really nowhere else to go now.  A cornered quarry can get very feral.

The difference is that this year  an election is impending.
