Reply to RDF Op Ed Attacking the Redlands Tea Party Patriots for Our #BlueLivesMatter #AllLivesMatter Rally to Support Our Law Enforcement Officers.

The Redlands Daily Facts published an Op Ed Attacking the Redlands Tea Party Patriots for Our #BlueLivesMatter #AllLivesMatter Rally to Support Our Law Enforcement Officers.

“Support officers without demonizing others”

The Redlands Tea Party Patriots organized the #BlueLivesMatter #AllLivesMatter rally on October 9 because of the anti-police campaign across America ranging from disrespect to killing police officers.

Everyone was free to join the Redlands Tea Party Patriots in supporting law enforcement at our #BlueLivesMatter #AllLivesMatter rally.  We advertised the meeting and encouraged everyone to join us.  Our rally was strictly focused on #BlueLivesMatter #AllLivesMatter rally.  Some of our conservative patriot allies joined our rally, most notably We the People Rising and the Oath Keepers of the Inland Empire.  The only elected officials or candidates who were Paul Chabot and Rialto Council Member Shawn O’Connell. 

However, no one from the RDF, City Council, Chamber of Commerce, Dem Party, or any other liberal group joined us including Peter Coonradt who wrote the RDF Op Ed.  Nor did any of them hold their own rally to support law enforcement.

The RDF published an Op Ed by its advisory board member Peter Coonradt condemning the Redlands Tea Party Patriots for our #BlueLivesMatter #AllLivesMatter rally. 

The RDF Op Ed gives the perfunctory “we support law enforcement” [like the perfunctory liberal “we support the troops”] before resuming the liberal assault on police for their “endemic racism,” “unarmed black men being shot, choked and beaten to death in clear violation of police protocol,” and “communities that have been long oppressed by biased police agencies.”

The RDF Op Ed gives no examples.  We will leave it to the people of Redlands to decide whether the Redlands Tea Party Patriots or the RDF Op Ed has a more accurate view of law enforcement officers. 

Certainly, police make mistakes and sometimes do wrong.  Each incident has to be evaluated based on the facts and evidence.  Everyone and especially people in high elected office should refrain from jumping to conclusions until the facts and evidence are known.

However, we have repeatedly seen the Obama administration, Dems and MSM jump on incidents before the facts are known and rev up anti-police hatred and resentment.  Even when the facts are known, as in Ferguson, they still perpetuate the lie of “hands up, don’t shoot.”  [BTW, has Obama, and in Dem politician, or anyone in the MSM shown the slightest bit of compassion for Darren Wilson whose career as a police officer was ended because of “hands up, do not shoot” lie and their “demonization”?]

The Dem Party embraces the #BlackLivesMatter that held a rally chanting “pigs in a blanket, fry em like bacon.”

When criminals like Michael Brown are justifiably killed while attacking a police officer, the Obama administration gives its full support to Michael Brown and sends officials to his funeral.  When police officers are murdered in the line of duty, the Obama administration gives little or no mention.  When thousands of blacks are shot by other blacks Obama, the Dems and the MSM are virtually silent.  [Unfortunately, it appears #BlackLivesMatter only when they serve the interests of the Dem Party.] 

And the result of the Obama, Dem, MSM assault on police, the police are reactive rather than proactive in combating crime.  Crime including murder is now soaring in many American cities harming the people Obama, the Dems and MSM were claim they were trying to help with their assault on police.

One of the great things about being a liberal is you never have to answer for the results of your policies, their supposed good intentions are enough.

The Redlands Tea Party Patriots again thanks all of the Patriots who spent some of their Friday evening at our #BlueLivesMatter #AllLivesMatter rally to support our law enforcement.

Any time any Dems, liberals including Peter Coonradt, city officials or others want to rally in support of law enforcement, the Redlands Tea Party Patriots will applaud, and if possible join, your efforts.

Please also add your comments to the Op Ed on the RDF website supporting #BlueLivesMatter #AllLivesMatter.


Regarding “demonization,”

It is not “demonization” to criticize Obama, Dems or liberals.  [Although to paraphrase Harry Truman, we just tell the truth about Obama, the Dem Party and the MSM and it sounds like “demonization.”]

Few if any groups are “demonized” more than the Tea Party movement, other than perhaps Americans who own guns and the National Rifle Association who defends Americans’ Second Amendment rights.  [There is that pesky Constitution again.]

The Tea Party movement consists of dedicated, volunteer patriots committed to protecting and restoring the freedom and opportunity for you and your children and grandchildren to pursue the American dream through:

  • Personal Freedom and Constitutionally Limited Government.
  • Economic Freedom with Opportunity for All and Favoritism for None.
  • A Debt-Free Future through Fiscal Responsibility Today

Those “extremist” principles and the idea that American citizens should control their government rather than vice versa are such an anathema and the threat to the established order that the Dems, Establishment Reps, and MSM are united in opposing the Tea Party movement and Tea Party principles.

If you agree with the “extremist” Tea Party principles, we invite you to join the cause of saving and restoring America as a great, free and exceptional country.

As always, “the most important political office is that of the private citizen.” Justice Louis D. Brandeis

    I wonder, how long does it take for the stupidity to set in for those that would critic those who would participate in such a great event? There is NO down side to showing appreciation to our centurions…
