• A Trend? D.C. Mob Attempts to Set Up Another Anti-American ‘Autonomous Zone’ 

    Surge Summary: Along with its attempt to tear down a statue of Andrew Jackson and vandalize a church, a mob in the nation’s capital wanted to set up another “Autonomous Zone”. In this instance, law enforcement thwarted their plans all the way around.

    There was chaos in Washington, D.C., again [Monday] night.  There was no police shooting or provocation, but we’re back to mobs in the streets just outside the White House.

    It started when a group of men appeared on the streets wearing helmets and carrying black shields.  Some also had baseball bats.  They moved in formation into Lafayette Square.  This was not a spontaneous demonstration against police brutality or a protest against racism.

    They formed a perimeter around the area and a mob quickly rushed into the square.  One of the first things they attempted to do was pull down a historic statue of President Andrew Jackson.  They vandalized St. John’s Church again.  (See next item.)

    Fighting quickly broke out and police reinforcements were called in.  Thankfully, the Jackson statue was saved.

    Meanwhile, the protesters attempted to set up their own autonomous zone at St. John’s Church, calling it “BHAZ” or “Black House Autonomous Zone.”  They even had the required sign, “You are now leaving the United States.”

    I wish they would leave the United States!  I would pay for them to leave.  But they are not taking my country with them!

    Selective Outrage

    St. John’s Episcopal Church, located just across the street from the White House, is known as “The President’s Church.”  Beginning with James Madison, our fourth president, every president has attended services at St. John’s.

    Now consider these three things:

    • Somebody sets the church on fire.
    • Somebody vandalizes the church with graffiti.
    • The president walks to the church and holds up the Bible.

    Which one of these events do you think would generate the greatest negative reaction from the media?

    Not setting the church on fire.

    Not vandalizing the church.

    But President Trump’s brief visit to show his solidarity with the historic church ignited a firestorm of protest.
