As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man….(Matthew 24:37)
And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually…The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.(Genesis 6:5,11)
The world has been watching in stunned amazement as riots rack several major cities in Britain. The violence began in London but has spread to Birmingham,Liverpool, Manchester, Derby and several other cities, where looting and arson are occurring by mobs of young anarchists.
Though the riots exploded when a criminal arms dealer was shot dead by police, there is no central organizing cause, rather they seem to be violent outbursts of opportunity, people are taking to the streets to loot and assault others simply because they can do it. As one young female rioter explained,”We are showing the rich, that we can do anything we want, and they can’t stop us.”
The US is not immune to the wave of violence either. Mega cities such as Chicago, Illinois have always been known for containing violent, lawless sections of town. But now there is a new dimension to the violence thanks to the innovative use of social media, the flashmob.
The vast army of unemployed, unemployable “gangstas” of our inner cities have devised a method of robbing business owners and shop keepers by sheer numbers. Pre-arranged mobs ranging in numbers of 20-100 show up at stores, overwhelm security and rob everything they can as quickly as possible, using violence whenever necessary.
When on the hottest weekend of the year to date, Memorial Day, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel closed the beach on Lake Michigan to the public , citing excessive heat as the reason, many realized something was amiss. The ugly truth would eventually come out, that using Facebook, more than a thousand “gang bangers” were arranging to show up at the beach to assault the innocent families who showed up for the holiday weekend.
Philadelphia, the”city of brotherly love” has a “flash mob” problem also. African-American youth are marauding the streets in large numbers, beating senseless any unfortunate whites they come across, sometimes putting them in the hospital.
The heartland of America is not exempt as attendees at the Wisconsin state fair found out. A crowd of three hundred African-American feral youth, rampaged, beating any unfortunate white men, women and children found in their path. The following is from WTMJ NewsRadio 620, as quoted in an American Thinker article;
Witnesses’ accounts claim everything from dozens to hundreds of young black people beating white people as they left State Fair Thursday night.
“It looked like they were just going after white guys, white people,” said Norb Roffers of Wind Lake in an interview with Newsradio 620 WTMJ.
“They were attacking everybody for no reason whatsoever.”
“It was 100% racial,” claimed Eric, an Iraq war veteran from St. Francis who says young people beat on his car.
“I saw them grab this white kid who was probably 14 or 15 years old. They just flung him into the road. They just jumped on him and started beating him. They were kicking him. He was on the ground. A girl picked up a construction sign and pushed it over on top of him. They were just running by and kicking him in the face.”
Earlier this year in Wisconsin, as they watched fourth of July fireworks, a family with young children were overwhelmed by a mob of fifty black youths, who beat both parents, a teenaged daughter, and two bystanders senseless, for the “fun” of it.
Last year at the Iowa State Fair, another feral mob of “Youths” proclaimed “Beat Whitey” night, assaulting unsuspecting fair goers, often in front of their own families.
What level of hatred are we dealing with here, when 100 teenagers would kick, punch and possibly maim a fourteen year old on a public street? How dead and calloused do you have to be to gang up on a mother, in the presence of her children and beat her senseless on a public street?
Such hate, especially in America has been carefully cultivated by professional race baiters, such as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, who have a vested interest in keeping the racial hate stoked, to justify their miserable professional existence.
Our public schools haven’t helped either with their unrelenting drumbeat of revisionist history, pointing out and exaggerating the flaws of America and the West, most notably the period of slavery, whilst glorifying the third world and particularly the accomplishments of Islam.
Should any of these young mobsters have spent any time in church, chances are it was of the Jeremiah Wright sort of sect, that is , black supremacist, white hating, liberation theology .
The violence points to the collapse of a large segment of our culture. This is the ripening flower of the “progressive movement”, which has destroyed the family in the name of compassion, subsidizing illigitimacy.The “sixties revolution” is rotten to the core, and demonstrably toxic.
What you are seeing is the fourth and fifth generation of those whose whole lives have been subsidized by various government programs, who have been raised without fathers. For political reasons, their mostly inner city “communities” have been nourished by blame, hate and resentment.
The seeming inability to deal with the violence comes from the moral paralysis of our leaders and Media. They can’t bring themselves to mention the ethnicity of the perpetrators of this barbarity, because it doesn’t fit their narrative of a godless Utopia based on “diversity”.
The violence is also a sharp reminder of our national denial of original sin, that without the grace of God, men are naturally evil, covetous and even murderous, When restraints are lifted, (ie the limpid response of the authorities to the anarchists) there is nothing unthinkable.
Britain and the USA owe their civil societies to Christianity, a religion which the elites in both nations have vigorously rejected, to our great hurt. As Francis Schaeffer told us back in the 1980’s, we in the west are only “coasting” on christian consensus, and the productive orderly societies that it has bequeathed to us.
Who would dream that in America a mother with her children would be set upon and assaulted by a gang, in overwhelming numbers?
Finally, the violence portends the “Last days” spoken of by Jesus and the prophets and apostles of the Bible.
Paul in particular warned us that “perilous times” would come upon the earth in the last days because men would be “Lovers of themselves…brutal, unnatural in their affection, traitors, heady, high minded(Notice the emphasis on self esteem!), Lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God…haters of those who are godd…etc”.
As Western Societies have turned away from the God of their fathers, they are forfeiting also the consensus, civility and order which caused the West and particularly the English-speaking world to be the most productive, beneficial, and benevolent society the world has ever known!
This isn’t going to be fixed by politics either, our only true hope is the return of Jesus Christ. Get ready everyone, Jesus is coming!
