I rarely discuss predictions or make guesses about the future, but this time I am going to make an exception. I am old enough to remember all the demonstrations that occurred during the days of rage in Chicago at the 1969 Democratic Convention. The term demonstration is incorrect in reality they were riots, and very close to an armed insurrection. In addition to this, there were numerous demonstrations and riots in various areas of the country, with the stated objective of stopping the war in Viet Nam. They came very close to martial law in some areas.
In reality while many of the people were there to stop the war, it was a movement to change the direction of the political system in this country. And it has worked to a large degree. Many of the people who were involved in this movement now hold political office.
Now comes Donald Trump, who is running for president. Whether you love or hate Trump, he is creating an unusual situation which the left will take advantage off. Many radical left wing groups are organizing and planning demonstration and riots against him. This movement is lead by dedicated leaders and well-organized groups that are well funded by the billionaire George Soros who was born in Hungary. Between 1979 and 2015, he donated more than 11 billion dollars to liberal and progressive causes. He is going to be a major supporter of the demonstration that will occur if Trump becomes the Republican nominee. Which I believe is quite likely.
As stated by various progressive groups they intend to have the largest demonstrations that have ever been seen in this country. They are already setting up classes to train the demonstrators. This follows what they did in the anti war demonstration. They trained their people well and told them what to bring to the demonstration to help alleviate the effects of tear gas and riot police.
If they are able to start demonstration on the level that they are predicting, it can directly affect many of us. If you live in the wrong area, you and your property could be in physical danger. Riots could also result in a declaration of martial law. The ramifications of this are difficult to predict.
Now I want to make one thing clear I am not taking a political position on Donald Trump, whether I vote for him or not is my business. I can tell you one thing I will not be voting for Hillary. But I want you to be aware of what these demonstrations can lead to. I was involved in some of the ones in the 1960’s and 70’s in a law enforcement capacity and in the near future I will pass along more information as I see it unfold. Remember the progressive left will never let an opportunity to cause trouble slip by and they will find some way to try to take advantage of this situation.
