Now the political left is unhinged and hell-bent on destruction

To The Daily Sun,

Remember when the left wing, mainstream media warned that there would be riots when Trump inevitably lost to President-elect Clinton? They knew this because of the thuggery and business-busting riots that occurred after Barack Obama became our president. Inevitable of course, due to the rampant racism that still exists in our society. Oh wait, there weren't any riots after that transformational moment was there? It was a peaceful transition facilitated with grace, respectfully, by former President Bush and citizens of every stripe.

No indeed, that sort of destructive and bullying behavior always seems to be initiated by the progressive left. From the Occupy Wall Street movement, to the Black Lives Matter movement, to the current anarchistic behavior by the left, after a hard fought, against all odds, Trump win. The progressive left runs to the streets to disrupt traffic, burn stuff, break business windows and assault the police. But Wiles, what about those violent Tea Party protests? Oh right, there wasn't any violent Tea Party activity, ever, never, ever!

Truth is, conservatives have never rioted after a presidential election. It is not in their DNA. No, it has been the province of the left since the 1920s, to rely on violence as their primary means of expressing their displeasure when things don't go their way. Because they believe they have won the culture war and so they feel empowered to force their ideology on everyone. After all, breaking a few more eggs to make that perfect socialist omelet is perfectly okay in their twisted, socialist minds.

To be fair, and sadly so, the vast majority of those protesters are not the citizens of Chicago, New York, Oakland, Los Angeles or Portland, Oregon. Nope, it's actually a bunch of socialists and Marxists, funded in large part by America-loathing George Soros, that is behind the threats, intimidation and destruction, as usual. "No Trump, No KKK, No Fascist USA" and burning Trump in effigy are evidence of the left, angry because things did not go their way. So damaged police cars, businesses ravaged, hurled Molotov cocktails, rocks thrown at officers and numerous fires set is the modus operandi of the progressive left, yet again.

Oh Wiles, you silly rabbit, there are no Marxists or communist types roaming the countryside, the Democrats will assure all of us. Gene Danforth has been telling us for a long time that they do indeed exist and continue to cause havoc with our politics. John Perazzo has all the current evidence fact checked in his Nov. 11 column on the frontpagemag.com website.

The left is unhinged and hell-bent on destruction because the election did not go their way. As John Perazzo notes, the protesters "are faithfully following the blueprint of Hillary Clinton's famous mentor, Saul Alinsky who urged radical activists to periodically stage loud, defiant, massive protest rallies expressing rage and discontent." Back in September, I quoted DeRay McKesson, the Black Lives Matter leader, who declared that rioting is a "cry for justice" and looting is not really violent, but rather an expression of anger. He went on to say, "Pressing you to no longer keep me out of this space, by destroying it" as his insane validation for destroying local businesses.

In Los Angeles, the street protesters sang John Lennon's "Give Peace a Chance" while burning Trump's image in effigy. Nothing says give peace a chance, leftist style, any better than destroying everything in its path when it doesn't get its way. For social justice and equality of course.

Interlakes Theatre Co. is here to lift you out of the holiday season abyss

To The Daily Sun,

As President Gerald Ford said many years ago, our long national nightmare is over. This historic election has come to an end. Whether you celebrated or mourned the decision, the stress that many off us had hoped would disappear seems to have been turned up several notches.

Thankfully, Thanksgiving is here to kick off our holiday season. For many of us, this truly unique American holiday involves one specific action; eating. Yes, bring out those loose-fitting pants. Have the Tums or Roland's at the ready! It's time for Thanksgiving dinner. White meat or dark meat? Cornbread stuffing or oyster stuffing? Jellied cranberry sauce from a can or homemade cranberry sauce? Pumpkin pie or apple pie? Decisions, more decisions and more decisions. And that means stress. A lot of stress.

Right after Thanksgiving comes Black Friday. Getting to the stores in the middle of the night. Specials. Getting to the front of the line. Stress and more stress. After Black Friday the shopping season really begins. What do I buy my husband? What do I buy my wife? And grandma and grandpa? The shopping list is endless. Just when you are about to lose your mind, someone or something comes along and lifts you out of the abyss and places your world back in proper alignment. This year, Interlakes Theatre is just that someone!
