Mark Caserta: Will “Antifa” target Huntington, WV. next?

2 Sep

Given our current problems, how will our mayor and his administration respond?

“Antifa”, short for “anti-fascist”, is the name of a left-leaning, anti-racist group that monitors and tracks the activities of local neo-Nazis, white supremacists or anyone who would be considered “supportive” of such racist activity.

In the political sense, the term “fascist” has been used in an anti-authoritarian sense to “emphasize the common ideology of governmental suppression of individual freedom. In recent years, liberals have endeared the notion of attaching the word fascist to the “far right” movement with the intent of portraying them as “oppressive, intolerant and racist.”

Up till now, Antifa has maintained a presence mostly on the West Coast, with activities designed to prevent organizations they’ve determined support any form of racist activity from gaining a platform or a foothold.

It’s come to my attention, that potentially as a result of our region’s enduring support of Donald Trump and the liberal media’s incorrect portrayal of the president as being sympathetic to the white supremacist movement, Antifa may be “testing the waters,” if you will, seeking to pursue growth to areas around the nation heavily supporting the Trump administration.

Recently, an Antifa Facebook page emerged from within our own city of Huntington, WV. and has already begun to share its propaganda using our own city newspaper.

The page is called, “Jewell City Antifa.” Huntington, as you may know, was given the nickname “Jewell City” by steamboat captains who passed through delivering lumber and coal to help fuel the growth of the railroad extension to the West.

It gives one pause to read the “about” section of the group’s page, since it is grammatically incorrect. Call me over-analytical, but I could make many assumptions as to the competencies of such an author. You be the judge. It reads:

“keeping the Fash out of HTown since 2019.”

Now, anti-fascist groups have been around for decades. In the postwar period, antifa groups resurged to fight neo-Nazi groups, particularly in Germany. They have, needless to say, evolved in our modern day, political battleground.

Understand, while Antifa operates on a platform of defeating racism, sexism and homophobia, the groups are also, by and large, socially left, anti-capitalist and against what they consider to be “extreme right-wing ideology.”

President Trump and his supporters would most likely fall into this Antifa profile.

Antifa protestors have typically donned an “all black” look, with black work or military boots, pants, ski masks, gloves and jackets. Gas masks, goggles and shields are sometimes added as accessories, but the look is basic black, no doubt, designed to intimidate.

And they don’t appear to be afraid of violence.

On June 29, violent riots between alt-right groups and Antifa broke out in Portland, Oregon, leaving several people with severe injuries. Portland has since become a hotbed for violent, left-wing groups per multiple reports.

In late August, a crowd of thousands cascaded down Martin Luther King Jr. Way in Berkeley, California, where Trump supporters were gathering under the mission to say “no to Marxism in America.” Reportedly, the march was led by about 100 people dressed in black.

Recently, President Trump reacted to the antics of Antifa.

“Major consideration is being given to naming ANTIFA an ‘ORGANIZATION OF TERROR,’” Trump tweeted. “Portland is being watched very closely. Hopefully the Mayor will be able to properly do his job!”

Given the Huntington’s mayor’s inclusion policy of “open to all”, does Antifa fall under that category? Will he properly do his job?

I submit, this is simply part and parcel of this administration’s failing policies which have contributed to the city of Huntington becoming one of the most dangerous cities in the nation, per capita. Not only do we have transients from multiple zip codes coming to our city for drug rehab, free syringes and the benevolence of liberal Democrats seeking re-election, we now face the potential fostering of a group whose intent could easily be described as threatening to the citizens of Huntington.

Folks, I’m not trying to be an alarmist, but you must take note of what’s coming to fruition in what truly once was the “Jewell City.” Given the status of our infrastructure and the disengagement of our liberal, Democrat leaders, what else could our city possibly endure?

It’s time to stand firm, Huntington. We know this madness isn’t going to end with our mayor and his current administration. It’s up to the citizens of Huntington.

This liberal onslaught ends now.

 

Mark Caserta: Liberal Democrats run “shamelessly” on a socialist platform.

Democrats used to attempt to “hide” their socialist tendencies from potential voters.

Now they run presidential campaigns on them.

Folks, it’s high time you take note of exactly what liberal Democrats are willing to do to our country, simply to beat President Trump. There is nothing they wouldn’t do, legal or otherwise, to see him fail. If it means our country returns to high unemployment, a low labor participation rate, record food stamps and poverty, and international embarrassment, then so be it.

And they don’t plan to “earn” enough votes to beat him in the 2020 presidential election. They plan to buy them – with your tax dollars, of course.

 Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT) proposes forgiving the student debt of 45 million Americans, roughly 1.6 trillion dollars, and that we pay for it by taxing the wealthy. Sanders is, of course, an unapologetic socialist.

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), aka: Pocahontas), along with other Democrat presidential candidates are doubling down on opening our borders and essentially decriminalizing illegal immigration. Additionally, Warren believes those who illegally overstay student visas, should be allowed to stay in America indefinitely.

Could that be the definition of an “Indian giver?” (Sorry, couldn’t resist)

Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) wants to end private health insurance and force everyone into a government-run, universal healthcare program. Harris told CNN, “I’m a progressive Democrat. I am a Democrat, I’m a proud Democrat. I’m not a socialist.”

Uh…what’s the difference, Ms. Harris.  Oh, and by the way, the government can’t run what it’s got now, much less an additional twenty percent of the economy. Putting the government in charge of healthcare would be like putting film maker, Michael Moore, in charge of the buffet at Golden Corral.

“Sleepy” Joe Biden vows to raise the corporate tax rates back to the Obama era, per the New York Post. Yes, Mr. Biden, that’s exactly what Americans are looking for – a return to the inept policies of a community organizer who set a new “low” standard for the U.S. presidency.

Oh, and it’s time for your afternoon “gaffe”.

Why, pray tell, do you suppose these Democrat (not Democratic) candidates offer “freebies” to students, illegals and the economically-deprived? If you believe it’s out of compassion, I’ve got some beach front property in Harlan, KY. to sell! It’s about garnering a sustainable voter base for years to come!

Frankly, Democrats believe Americans are just ignorant enough to fall for their ploy to “purchase” enough votes to beat Donald Trump. And they’re not doing a very good job at hiding it – for those watching.

Ask yourself, “What has the Democrat Party done for me since re-gaining the House of Representatives?” Instead of doing their job and working for the American people, they’re using your hard-earned money to continue a witch hunt against President Trump!

Afterward, ask yourself what President Trump has done for this country in just over 30 months? The “wins” are unprecedented! And he’s done it, despite the leftist Democrats, the media, and some Republicans!

One may be compelled to ask the question, “Do liberal Democrats hate Trump more than they love their country?”

Well, does Hillary Clinton wear pant suits? Unequivocally, (and thank goodness) YES!

Destroying Trump simply outweighs serving our country for liberal Democrats. If this doesn’t meet the definition of “high crimes and misdemeanors”, I’m not sure what does. Isn’t it ironic these criminals seek to impeach President Trump! Talk about diversion tactics!

It’s time these dysfunctional, pseudo representatives be ousted. If their employment was contingent upon their performance, like the rest of Americans, they would be unemployed.

If these Democrat presidential candidates think America is such a bad place, let’s give them a productive use for our tax dollars and purchase them “one-way’ tickets to Venezuela. Let them run for office there.

They’ll also gain some perspective on the truths of socialism, where everyone is, indeed, equal.

Equally poor.

“Liberal Democrats used to attempt to hide their socialist agenda – Now they run campaigns on it.”

Despite liberal Democrats attempting to convince the nation that “Russian collusion” is at the top of voter’s priorities, nothing could be further from the truth. For several years, it’s been about jobs, the economy, national security and illegal immigration – period.

Once again, this group of “never Trumpers”, who have worked so hard to create a reason to impeach President Trump, are losing their minds over special counsel, Robert Mueller’s decision not to issue any more indictments as a result of his nearly 2-year investigation into alleged collusion between Russia and the Trump administration.

President Trump was confident and correct in his decision to allow, what many described as a “witch hunt”, to continue. But don’t expect Democrats to accept the findings of the investigation, which as of December 2018, had exceeded $25 million of taxpayer money per multiple news sources, to include USA Today in a column by Bart Jansen late last year.

Even following the release of the Mueller report to Congress, Democrats showed their down card.  The truth simply isn’t important.  They plan continue to dig, scrape and invent fake news to convince Americans that Donald Trump is the devil.

And it’s impact on you or our nation doesn’t matter.  Just stop Trump.

But, along with the faction of fruitcakes that will labor fecklessly in this regard, there’s another segment of the Democrat Party that is working toward accumulating voters for the 2020 presidential election who they hope will be ignorant enough of the facts to elect a candidate who “promises them the world” without any idea of how to pay for it.

It’s really alarming how many junior members of Congress who have no idea how government or the economy works. It’s equally alarming that many people are ignorant of their ignorance!

Let’s take a moment and look at the Democrat policy proposals that have been bandied about on Capitol Hill since Trump won the 2016 election.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) wants to lower the minimum voting age to 16. Believe me, when I tell you this recommendation has nothing to do with improving our country. She is banking on younger voters voting Democrat, since 67 percent of voters under 30, went for a House Democrat in the 2018 midterm elections.

How many 16-year-olds, now-a-days, understand government and policy? Crazy idea.

Democrat presidential candidate Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren supports abolishing the U.S. Electoral College. Besides representing the antithesis of the core of our Republic, this crazy notion, again, isn’t about improving our nation.

Liberal loons are simply tired of losing elections “legally”. They would rather win them “illegally”.

Simply put, removing the electoral college removes the level playing field in terms of state representation and would empower states like New York and California to make national decisions, rendering smaller states without representation in a national election.

Liberals blocking Trump’s border wall and desiring to open the borders, certainly isn’t about improving our nation. It’s about bringing in people, whose only hope will be to rely upon Democrats providing them sanctuary and sustenance. Oh, and who will also vote for them every single time – regardless of whose name is on the ballot.

The term, “Free Stuff”, should just be added to the Democrat Party platform. It’s nothing more than buying votes. Prepare to continue to hear it from candidates like Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) and Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, who, frankly, have gone off the deep-end, in terms of appealing to the “repressed” masses with their modern-day version of “Robin Hood” politics as they propose taking from those that “have” and re-distributing to those who “have not”.

Don’t forget. Robin Hood was a criminal.

Can you imagine what state our country would be in if we removed the incentive to work? Just look at other socialist third-world countries for a snapshot. Can anyone say, “socialism”?

And then there are those Democrats who are working to remove Donald Trump from the ballots in some states.   And they accuse the GOP of voter suppression?

President Donald Trump is simply doing what we had hoped other Republican presidents would do once we elected them. And Democrats can’t stand it.

The truth is, liberal Democrats have absolutely nothing to run on in 2020 that has anything at all to do with the betterment of our country. They want to give more rights to illegal immigrants and abortionists than they want you to have.

Something is inherently wrong with that ideology.

But, despite the fake news polls, Americans love want President Trump is doing for the nation. The economy is booming, unemployment for all demographics is at a 44-year low, and our nation has never been more respected and revered by other countries.

Yes, we will happily bank on Trump’s wins over Democrat’s woes in 2020.  Trump’s accomplishments in just 2 1/2 years is amazing.  The fact he did it all by himself, is astounding!

Just remember, the same simpletons who told you Trump would lose in a landslide to Hillary are the same pack who continue to convince you he is failing in leading our nation.

Sort of speaks volumes for the trust level we can have for liberal Democrats, doesn’t it?
