Conservatives have been watching in horror — and in rising anger and frustration — over the dismantling of our country at the hangs of Marxist anarchist thugs.
And while the Left-wing garbage media cheer on the destruction, like-minded Democrats have been pulling double duty — excusing the destruction while justifying it.
But where have Republicans been?
Where do they stand? What sayeth members of the party that contains the root word “republic’ in its name?
Do they think what’s going on is okay? Or are they vehemently against what’s happening to our monuments, our public square, our national heritage, our culture?
Rep. Chip Roy (R-Texas) thinks members of his party need to step up to the plate and speak out against what’s going on in defense of the country.
He writes in a column at The Federalist:
The United States of America is starting to resemble a Target in Minneapolis, overrun by lawless mobs and left for dead by the very leaders charged with upholding the rule of law.
Today, we are witnessing the wealthiest, freest, and greatest country in the history of the world, which took more than 240 years to build, being burned to the ground at the hands of radical leftists motivated primarily by anarchy and a Marxist agenda, not racial justice. Compared to previous generations and their peers who sign up to defend America, these folks have contributed precious little to society. Yet, somehow, they have found a way to bend America to their will. How? Because most of our nation's political class won't stand up and lead.
Yes, those civilians choosing to loot businesses, paint 'Kill Cops' on billboards, destroy property, and promote violence are being propped up by the very politicians—Democrat or Republican, take your pick—you've elected. But it goes deeper than that.
The very people you have sent to Washington, D.C. to make laws, uphold them, conduct oversight, and ensure America remains a safe and prosperous nation have cowered to the mob. …
What is shocking to see, though, as a life-long conservative and now Republican member of Congress, is my party, whether at the local, state, or federal level, so far failing to give their voters reason to believe the GOP will defend our country. More, they have been failng to go on offense to make clear the systemic racism that is ripping apart black families and the fabric of our nation comes from the Democrat Party and its adherence to failed big government programs over the promise of individuals, families, and communities prospering.
Republicans must immediately stand up for the rule of law. We must loudly defend law enforcement. In the House, Speaker Nancy Pelosi won't allow us to show up for work, so we must loudly demand we do our job. We must loudly demand an end to broken schools over education freedom, an end to the failed welfare state over a vibrant opportunity agenda, and an end to broken families over homes with mothers and fathers and community support.
But the first step is restoring law and order. Republicans must call out the radical agenda of Antifa and the Black Lives Matter Organization, while championing true liberty and justice that benefits all. There isn't an American alive, regardless of race or any other immutable characteristic, who doesn't want to be able to put her baby on the hip, walk to the corner store, and return home without fear of harassment or violence. Americans want freedom, which isn't possible without safety and security.
He concludes: “It's time for Republicans to Stand Up For America. We must no longer retreat to lawless mobs and undermine security and prosperity for black Americans, or any other American, being used to advance Marxism.”
We couldn’t agree more.
President Trump is Breaking Down the Neck of the Federal Reserve!
He wants zero rates and QE4!
You must prepare for the financial reset
