There was some ‘violence’, as the media called it, at a protest in Weatherford, Texas over the past weekend. There was a group of citizens who were there to try to protect yet another endangered Confederate monument, when antifas, apparently from Dallas-Fort Worth, showed up in support of BLM. Unsurprisingly disagreements led to scuffles and clashes between the two groups.
The mostly-young antifas carried signs describing those who favored keeping the monument as being ‘traitors’. It seems almost humorous for antifas to call the people of Weatherford who were there as traitors; just what are they loyal to? Certainly not the country of their birth, and most certainly not their own kindred.
I mean, do they even know what the term ‘traitor’ means? Lately it’s “in” to call Confederates and their descendants ”traitors.” Quite the contrary; they were loyal to the death to their states, their Christian faith, their leaders (mostly good men, no matter what the ignorant say) and above all, loyal to their folk, their kin, their hearths and their homes.
What are antifas ‘loyal’ to? Anything at all? What do they believe in? Destruction and malice? Or are they ‘loyal’ to whoever gives them their pay for what they do?
And incidentally it seems the antifas found it hard to spell ‘traitor’, and some of their handmade signs read ‘traiter’ or ‘traiterist’, (I think they meant to write ‘traitorous’, the adjective, but oh well. Schools don’t teach spelling, grammar, or any such old-fashioned subjects.)
Apparently no one was seriously hurt during the scuffle, as the police dispersed the crowd of 200 or so people.
I am heartened somewhat to see that the people in Weatherford still have some spirit, to exercise their right to object to the removal of the monument — and to stand up to the antifas who crashed the party.
