Letter to the editor: BLM and Antifa are more of a threat than white supremacists
I am responding to Marty Ansley’s letter of July 24th. I know four things about people like Mr. Ansley. They shrink from reality. They distribute it, but they cannot take it. They don’t care about the embarrassing facts that destroy their narrative. They look at what over-ism is when their argument is weak (hence Christopher Wray).
Ansley has never denied any of my allegations, which means I’m right. As for Puyallup, he admits that he has not personally witnessed any racist incidents. Of course he didn’t. I don’t care what he saw on TV. We have all seen it. He still has not substantiated his claims with his first letter.
Unearthing President Eisenhower and all references to race relations in the 1950s proves Ansley lives in the past. They do nothing to back up his claim of white supremacy as it exists now. The 20th century called. They want to reclaim their white supremacy. Let’s live in the 21st century, will you?
Ansley cowardly hides behind Christopher Wray in a futile attempt to bolster his credibility. Neither Wray nor Ansley offered a plethora of evidence that white supremacy is the number one national threat to our national security. I’m gonna shoot a Jerry McGuire: show me the evidence, Marty! Of course, ISIS is not a threat. President Trump wiped out ISIS in their own territory. If Ansley had had a touch of integrity, he would have recognized it.
Wray and Ansley both have a data point: January 6. It was a terrible day. I would not have participated in any case. Not a single participant that day was charged with treason or sedition. No one has been charged with a weapons charge. The “Viking man” has been charged with two offenses, mainly trespassing. No crimes. But, he’s still rotting in a DC jail. Find it, Marty. It is an outlier. It will never happen again.
I challenge Ansley to tell us how white supremacy has personally affected him. And how many white supremacists he saw walking around. Show me the white supremacists burned Portland for 150 days. Wait, that was antifa and BLM. Show me it was the white supremacists who smashed Andy Ngo’s skull with a brick during the summer of the riots. You can’t, because the video shows it was an antifa punk dressed in black tactical gear who did it. They know who did it, but still no charges. I challenge Mr. Ansley to move to Portland and live with his ideological brethren. He won’t. He is too cozy and comfortable in his little hamlet of Cinebar inhabited by people like me.
He doesn’t want to live in the Portland cesspool any more than I do now.
The real threats to this country are antifa and BLM. They are trying to destroy this country as we speak. Oh, but in a polite society you can’t say that because it’s racist.
I am a retired senior officer. I hate to put up with fools like Ansley. I defended his right to be ignorant for 22 years. I’m pretty sure I know a bit more about national security than he does. I saw what the world really looks like.
There are a lot of bad people in the world, but the tiniest minority of them are white supremacists. Tell me how many Americans are white supremacists. I tried to find it. I could not. You made the statement. You are looking for it. In my 42 years of association with the military, I have never met a member (including minorities) who was terrified of white supremacists. Among the dozens of national security briefings I have attended and the thousands of classified intelligence documents I have reviewed, not once has white supremacy been promulgated as a threat to national security . I will be taking my own experience on Ansley and Wray every day and twice on Sunday.
I’m breathlessly waiting for Ansley’s next letter so he can dazzle us all with his glow.
