From M. SIDNEY MEDIA
OPINION BY| The leftist journalist/pundit, Shaun King sent out a tweet the other day that I thought would be important to share.
Don’t worry, I’m just as surprised as you are that a tweet from Mr. King is leading off this post:
STOP generically telling us to VOTE in response to all of the police brutality we have right now.
Yes we should vote. But we have to be VERY specific.
Democrats, from top to bottom, are running the cities with the worst police brutality in America right now.
We voted for them.

Mr. King is right. If you look at the areas of the map where the most suffering is happening, where the lawlessness if through the roof, you will find that most of them just so happen to be run by Democrat majority governments.
Compare what happened in Minneapolis and what is still going on in the CHOP (Seattle), to the outcome of President Trump’s rally last night in the red state of Oklahoma:
Minneapolis back on May 28th where a police station was abandoned and occupied by rioters:

Yes, this was after an unarmed man was killed by a group of multiracial police officers, so it is not an apples to apples comparison.
Here is a Seattle’s CHOP, which the mayor of Seattle raves about … as a good thing, following the shooting of two men:

One of the men, a 19 year old, reportedly died, while police tried to reach him inside CHOP, however they were denied entry by the ‘activists’ inside the ‘occupied’ territory.
Now compare this to last night’s Trump rally, where zero people died and there were very few reports of violence, yet plenty of political speech, from polar opposite ends of the spectrum.
Also, keep in mind that peaceful protesting is, perhaps the most important part of American civil society. It is what makes America great. The right to complain about our government when we see things we believe are not just occurring within that government is one of the most important things that make America special.
While I do not agree with all that the protesters have to say, it is very important that we protect their right to make their points, PEACEFULLY. That being said, there is no place for violence in politics, and when the two intersect things get very, very messy.
This is why the National Guard was deployed to back up local law enforcement in Tulsa for the first rally helfd by the President of the United States since February.
The Washington Post reported, in an article entitled ‘Verbal confrontations and boiling tempers, but no violence at Trump Tulsa rally’:
‘Adding to the fortified atmosphere, about 250 National Guard soldiers were on hand to assist local authorities. Some were armed in response to an elevation of the threat level, said Lt. Col. Geoff Legler, a spokesman for the Guard. Initially, the plan was to equip them only with batons, shields and pepper spray.
Before 3 p.m., a couple of blocks from the rally venue, Black Lives Matters activists and Trump supporters clashed in the middle of Fourth Street, outside the barricades overseen by the National Guard and Tulsa police. Police stepped in to clear the street and separate megaphone-shouting protesters from the Trump supporters who were yelling right back.
William Dunbar, a 33-year-old Tulsa resident, approached the faceoff between Trump supporters and protesters with firearms strapped across his chest and on his hip to express his “First and Second Amendment rights.”
The Tulsa native said he was there as a deterrent.
“The last thing I want is to hurt another individual,” he said. “I’m a de-escalator.”’

Trump Rally supporters welcome the National Guard to Tulsa ahead of Trump’s rally later on tonight.
BLM and Antifa you are officially put on notice. No one is going to take a knee.

Trump supporters welcomed the National Guard and the security that their presence brought to the event.
In all honesty, I am not so comfortable with the military being deployed domestically. I know these are extra ordinary circumstances, and they did a good job of keeping the peace. We just need to be careful to ensure this does not become the norm.
Unfortunately, it seems as if the left will not rest until Trump and likely, any conservative leaning government is removed from power. I hope that we are able to restore order to the nation without furthering the growing police state that we see forming across the country.
Sure we do not view it as a threat right now, however, when the Democrats regain power, and eventually they will, you can be sure they will try to weaponize law enforcement and the military to be used against their political adversaries (US), just like the Obama admin used the DOJ and FB against the Trump campaign.
Once again I will suggest we all go outside and talk to one another. Turn off your TV, get to know your neighbors and the people who live in surrounding neighborhoods and I think you will find that we have a lot more in common with one another that the TV would lead you to believe.
Always remember, the enemies of America want it’s people divided so that they can subjugate us, and the only way America will survive is UNITED. Of course Black Lives Matter, ALL Lives Matter.
