Portland protests

In recent years we’ve seen lots of protests by leftists; not so long ago there were critical remarks by some writers about children, even toddlers, being brought to protests and demos.

Now, we’ve got the ‘Wall of Moms’ in Portland, Oregon. This is a new twist, an attention-getter, but it sets a bad example.

It’s hard to find objective news in our controlled media, so obviously the media coverage is favorable towards these mothers who are acting as sort of human shields for their out-of-control, over-aged adolescents. I don’t know the average age of the antifas who are perpetrating these protests, but they seem mostly old enough to know better — and old enough to function without Mommy acting as their keeper or bodyguard.

In an earlier, and saner, time, this whole sideshow would be seen as an example of “hiding behind Mommy’s skirts”; young men would be humiliated. But with this generation of ‘snowflakes’ who are shielded and coddled and humored in their strange notions, there is no shame (or honor) there.

Over these last few chaotic weeks, it seems every day brings new craziness, and I have a feeling there is still more to come.

I can’t understand why these pointless riots, chaos and mayhem for its own sake, have been allowed to go on for 50-something days. It seems no adults are in charge; these Moms are not acting like adults, but attempting to join as peers in their ‘children’s’ antics. Someone has to hold these people responsible for their actions. The “kids” are probably all old enough to be dealt with as the adults they are, and the Moms ought to be subject to penalties of law likewise. And the Moms are too old to be acting out alongside their ‘children’.

But where are the adults who are ready to take charge?

Some people liken these days of disorder to the ‘student unrest’ of the Vietnam War days, and ‘1968.’ I don’t think anything like this happened even then; unless you lived in the Big City or near a major university where the protests happened, you weren’t likely to see a spectacle such as Portland, Oregon is putting on.

    • Charles, sorry for the slow reply. I’ve noticed that the local governments are involved in removing statues; one blogger says it is being done BY the local governments; it was planned, it is being done at their behest. I don’t know if that’s right, but it seems anything is possible.If it’s true, it’s a very sobering idea.

  1. But now, what will be the character of the children reared under such a domestic organization as this? If human experience has established anything at all, it is the truth of that principle announced by the Hebrew prophet when he declared that the great aim of God in ordaining a permanent marriage tie between one man and one woman was “that He might seek a godly seed.” God’s ordinance, the only effective human ordinance for checking and curbing the first tendencies to evil, is domestic, parental government. When the family shall no longer have a head, and the great foundation for the subordination of children in the mother’s example is gone; when the mother shall have found another sphere than her home for her energies; when she shall have exchanged the sweet charities of domestic love and sympathy for the fierce passions of the hustings; when families shall be disrupted at the caprice of either party, and the children scattered as foundlings from their hearthstone.—it requires no wisdom to see that a race of sons will be reared nearer akin to devils than to men. In the hands of such a bastard progeny, without discipline, without homes, without a God, the last remains of social order will speedily perish, and society will be overwhelmed in savage anarchy.

    • Dabney really knew what he was talking about. We are seeing his words verified in the world today.
      Now that the damage is done, what next?
      Personally I don’t know if there’s a human solution; I’m with Cambria. We have to turn to the living God again.

    This is a real frenzy of damaged losers. A sad spectacle.

    What should conservatives do to move forward?

    What would your advice to young people be?

    I would do what I can to help. I don’t have much to lose.

    If my health and situation improved I would be so active on the Anglo Conservative scene.

    • Puritan, I empathize with your desire to help. I wish I could, likewise.
      I don’t know where you live but if you live in a community where you can be active in some way via groups, or a church, or something that involves politics, depending on your inclinations. That’s very vague advice, I know, but it’s the best I can offer.
      I know there are some young people who are not ‘crazy; like those in Portland, Oregon or Seattle. If you live in a town or neighborhood where people are more traditional and you can find like-minded young people — even just finding people of like minds is a help; it’s frustrating and depressing to feel isolated.
      Prayer is never futile, in my opinion. Pray continually as our Bibles tell us.
      Keep your spirits up and don’t give way to discouragement. I tell myself that a lot.
