The riots continue to progress around the country, and they are starting to upset the residents of those communities. The attacks on historical monuments at the hands of terrorists are causing some states to use the National Guard to quiet things down.
This is the case in New Mexico where anti-authority demonstrators decided to attack and topple a statue that is pivotal to the state’s history.
As the moment unfolded a gunshot could be heard in the distance and a man was taken to the hospital. Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller stated that “The shooting tonight was a tragic, outrageous and unacceptable act of violence and it has no place in our city.”
The incident happened when a self-proclaimed “civil guard” showed up to protect the statue from being torn down. The men that showed up were armed with live weapons and sought to engage the protestors. They are the citizens that are tired of the violence.
A report states that five shots were fired by an armed man towards the angry protestors that started to advance on him. The men were there to protect the statue, but they could have gone about it a different way.
But this shows that people are tired of being harassed by angry mobs. The police showed up on the scene and started using flashbangs and other deterrents to entice the armed men to surrender. Several men who were dressed for war were taken into custody.
The Albuquerque Police Chief is Michael Geier and he stated that “We are receiving reports about vigilante groups possibly instigating this violence. If this is true [we] will be holding them accountable to the fullest extent of the law, including federal hate group designation and prosecution.”
There is no reason to have a civil guard marching around threatening people even if they are being violent towards a statue. They have taken things way too far.
The city is bowing to the pressure of the protestors as they have announced that they will be taking the statue down until things settle down and what they believe a better direction can take place.
The question over the armed guards is up for debate with the freedom-hating Democrats. The governor of New Mexico is Lujan Grisham, who is a Democrat to the core. She saw the men as a problem.
She maintained that she hated the fact that there were people taken on the violent protestors. In just about every Democrat-run state there have been violent protests with little to no countermeasures given in return. The Democrats are content to let Antifa and other evil terrorist groups destroy their states.
Grisham annoyingly stated that “There is absolutely no space in New Mexico any violent would be ‘militia’ seeking to terrorize New Mexicans. The instigators this evening will be rooted out, they will be investigated, and they will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law.”
The civil guard obviously thinks that if the Democrats will not protect people, then they will. The man that shot the other violent person was simply protecting himself. The crowd of violent protestors is on a mission to remove all statues in the state. There have been several that have been attacked and destroyed at the hands of America haters.
The state and federal level Democrats have no love for the history of the monuments that define the United States of America. They are content to let anyone destroy the monuments that are debatable and detestable in their eyes.
The monument in New Mexico is set to be removed until a plan of action can be developed. Those Democrats have no intention of putting it back once it is taken down. It will quietly fade into the darkness of the past.
President Trump is moving to stop the hatred of people against the country. If they do not like it here, then they can go as easily as they came. The Democrats hate this thought because deep down they know that the country is a great place to live and live the American dream.
