How The Right Also Cooperates With Jihadists To Destroy America
As the United States is less than two months away from Election Day, it is still stigmatized by the riots and other forms of violence by the anarchist movements that seek to not just overthrow our government but do away with the principles that built American society and made the world free.
Exploiting of the George Floyd killing — it had more to do with police brutality as opposed to racism — domestic terrorist groups, like Antifa and Black Lives Matter (BLM), have organized and staged clashes in cities and towns breeding a state of lawlessness, simultaneously, with the help of the media, it has manipulated many Americans, regardless of race, color or sex, to partake in their anti-democracy campaign.
As previously written, what distinguishes BLM from Antifa and other like-mined leftwing groups is that Black Lives Matter has strong ties to Islamic terrorist organizations, thereby becoming a greater menace.
Its jihadist involvement is seen, for example, in the advocacy of the two Somali Muslim rioters in Minneapolis who demanded the release of Mohamed Noor, a Somali Muslim former police officer who shot and killed an unarmed, Australian-born, white female, Justine Damond, for no reason in 2017, after she called 911 about a disturbance outside her home. Let us also not forget how Nihad Awad, the Executive Director of the CAIR, in a speech delivered to the Annual Muslim American Society and Islamic Circle of North America in 2015 urged Muslim Americans to take up the cause of Black Lives Matter. “Black Lives Matter is our matter,” he said; “Black Lives Matter is our campaign.”
Yet not all of these hyphenated-Americans, as President Woodrow Wilson once classified the anarchists of his time, who have have ties to Islamic terrorist organizations are from the left as certain “conservative” media outlets want us to believe — like the liberal media, they equally refuse to present objective news, thereby feeding off Americans’ anxieties in order to boost their ratings. Far-Right anarchist groups are, in fact, more prevalent than meet the eye.
The Clarion Project reported on Thursday that the FBI arrested two members of the Boogaloo bois or Boogaloo boys — a rightwing group that espouses a violent anti-government and anti-police ideology with the objective to overthrow the government — were charged with trying to provide support for the Palestinian terror group Hamas, a designated foreign terrorist organization.
Michael Robert Solomon, 30, and Benjamin Ryan Teeter, 22, both Americans, are members of the Boogaloo movement. According to the report, they made offers to supply “untraceable” weapons and parts to an undercover agents posing as a member of Hamas. The investigation into Solomon and Teeter began in late May 2020 when a witness spotted Solomon openly carrying firearms in a residential neighborhood in Minneapolis in the aftermath of the civil unrest following the death of George Floyd.
The Booaloo Bois, while classified as a Far-Right extremist group, has portrayed itself as neo-Nazis, white supremacists and pro-civil war. Many may ask how could neo-Nazis, if faithful to the “pure race” mentality that killed over 6 million Jews during the Holocaust, cooperate with Arabs?
The answer is just like Nazi Germany, today’s anarchists and Islamists both wish to undermine and destroy the foundation of American principles in the U.S. and the entire free world.
Roots of Cooperation between Neo-Nazism and Islamic Jihadists
The National Socialists who created the Third Reich had from its outset upheld the banner of its fight against world Jewry. Hence, they always followed with personal interest the fight of the ‘freedom-loving’ Arabs, above all in Palestine, against the ‘Jewish intruders.’ As explained by Middle East historian Wolfgang G. Schwanitz, the recognition of a common enemy and the joint struggle against Jews led to a natural alliance between the Nazis and “the freedom-loving Muslims of the whole world.”
In April 2017, Israel’s National Library blogged about Heinrich Himmler’s — one of the most powerful men in Nazi Germany and a main architect of the Holocaust — lost telegram to the grand mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini. Contrary to the popular claim that Nazi Germany did not support Arab independence and the eradication of the nascent Jewish state, evidence shows that it did.
On the 26th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration — a public statement issued by the British government in 1917 during the First World War announcing support for the establishment of a “national home for the Jewish people” — Himmler sent his best wishes for the mufti’s “protest meeting,” which took place in Berlin. The event was used to decry the Balfour Declaration, and to oppose the establishment of a Jewish state. Such public support for Husseini would have been impossible without Adolf Hitler’s prior consent. In fact, Hitler and the mufti met in 1941 to discuss their joint aggression toward Jews, which resulted in an anti-Jewish pact of genocide.
We therefore should not be surprised why neo-Nazi anarchists are willing, just like the left, to make a pact with Islamic jihadists.
America is not a perfect society, as it has had its dark moments in history. Nor has it had perfect men in the Executive office. Nevertheless, as Pope Benedict XVI said during his visit to the White House in 2008:
“From the dawn of the Republic, America’s quest for freedom has been guided by the conviction that the principles governing political and social life are intimately linked to a moral order based on the dominion of God the Creator. The framers of this nation’s founding documents drew upon this conviction when they proclaimed the “self-evident truth” that all men are created equal and endowed with inalienable rights grounded in the laws of nature and of nature’s God. The course of American history demonstrates the difficulties, the struggles, and the great intellectual and moral resolve which were demanded to shape a society which faithfully embodied these noble principles. In that process, which forged the soul of the nation, religious beliefs were a constant inspiration and driving force, as for example in the struggle against slavery and in the civil rights movement.”
We see this with great presidents like:
- Abraham Lincoln, who initially favored the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1954, allowed people in the territories of Kansas and Nebraska to decide for themselves whether or not to allow slavery within their borders. Yet he was able to repeal slavery in America and preserve the Union at the cost of his own life.
- Harry Truman, notwithstanding his alleged ties to the Ku Klux Klan as a young man — never fully proved — he appointed a committee to study civil rights abuses and later supported the panel’s call for anti-lynching and anti-poll tax legislation against black Americans. He also, through the enactment of Executive Order 9981, desegregated the U.S. military and became the first president to campaign in Harlem, for which he lost political support from his old Southern Democratic allies.
- Lyndon Baynes Johnson, having personal racist tendencies, he nevertheless crushed the Jim Crow laws with the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
In other words, these men eventually matured and rose above their personal biases in order to ensure that democracy, as sowed by our Founding Fathers, would prevail — we should focus more on the good done than the personal sins, which we all have, of the individual. And these are the American principles that must be defended against Islamists and their anarchist cronies from both the left and the right.
