ANTIFA, ISIS, KOREA, AND THE FALL OF THE MODERN UNITED STATES: A MANIFEST BY MATTHIEU-JEAN “KAPPA” R. GAGNIER
Introduction to the concepts
The United States
The United States of America was founded in 1776, on July 4th, with the Declaration of Independence marking this historic event. Some of the first documents written for this new and upcoming government, known as the Constitution and Bill of Rights, ensured every man in the country had the same rights, coining the phrase “All men are created equal”. This wasn’t followed by most, with People of color and women lacking most rights that white men did. However, documents and amendments such as the Emancipation Proclamation, the 13th, 19th, and Equal Rights amendments, Workers Rights Laws and the Maryland Toleration act gave every citizen of the United States equal rights, regardless of gender, religion, race, creed, color, etc.
In 1999, in Jama’at al-Tawhid wal-Jihad, an Islamic militant group in Syria became known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, commonly referred to as ISIL or ISIS. This group would go mainly unnoticed until 2014, when several people from various countries, including Syria, Britain, America, Algeria, Lebanon, and Iraq, were beheaded on video, which was leaked to the countries. The United States was outraged by this act, and promptly began to attack ISIS. Meanwhile, terrorist attacks from the group appeared in America, France, and Britain.
In 1950, the United States aided South Korea in it’s defense against North Korea and Russia. The fighting ended in an Armistice, separating the two countries and forcing them to stand down. While United States relations with North Korea has never been stellar, things began heating up in 2009, when North Korea detained several American journalists. Bill Clinton resolved the matter in August of that year, but since then, America and North Korea have always been at each other’s throats. However, during the late Obama administration and early Trump administration, North Korea began working on it’s nuclear program more and more, threatening America with a nuclear missile attack should they ever think of harming North Korea. In response to this, trade from many countries has been shut down with the dictatorship, South Korea has begun training an assassination team to attack Kim Jong Un, leader of the country, and the United States has expressed it’s willingness to use extreme force in retaliation against North Korea.
Antifa (and all affiliated groups)
In 2011, the term Social Justice Warrior appeared on the social media site, Twitter. While originally a positive term, it quickly gained a negative reputation during the Gamergate Controversy of the late 20th century, in which video game developers were accused of sexism, due to female designs in video games. The term often references a person who believes in extremist racist, heterophobic, and sexist beliefs, targeting heterosexual white men, who they believe to be the ultimate oppressor of women, LGBT peoples, People of color, and various other groups. This term is often associated with Tumblr and Buzzfeed, social media websites that promote the harassment of heterosexuals, whites, men, and previous generations. Social Justice Warriors often times believe the United States is a rape cultured country that promotes the sexual assault of women, that white men control the country, and that open borders, communism, and anarchism is the path to true freedom.
In 2014, after the acquittal of Officer George Zimmerman for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, the movement “Black Lives Matter” began on twitter, with the hashtag “#BlackLivesMatter”. This group started off as a simple movement with simple, easily achievable goals. However, this changed drastically over the year of it’s founding, as Ferguson, Missouri became subject to a massive riot, known as the “Ferguson Unrest”, which took place in 3 waves, dispersed between August 2014 and August 2015. Violent outbreaks from this group continued, and Police Officers and their families were often targeted, with the group killing many police officers and their families from 2014 onward, including a Baton Rouge officer who was left paralyzed after a BLM related shooting in 2016. Black Lives Matter claims to be a peaceful group, yet the number of police officers left dead on the streets continues to grow.
Antifa is a radical leftist militant group in the United States, which bases it’s belief system in Anarchism, Anti-fascism, and Radicalism. The group began growing in 2017, after the election of President Donald J Trump. The organization has over 200 cells in the country, and has been labeled as a domestic terrorist organization as of late 2017.
Antifa became a prominent in 2017, in the Berkeley Riot of 2017, at the University of California, Berkeley. They wore all black and masks, beat peaceful demonstrators who supported right wing or conservative beliefs with bludgeoning weapons and shields, threw Molotov cocktails, and smash windows, causing $100,000 worth of damage. Police were ordered to stand down to avoid becoming the next George Zimmerman, and stood by as innocent people were beaten to the ground.
In Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017, Antifa began a very similar riot, wielding sticks and shields, and beating White Supremacists who were peacefully demonstrating. If you didn’t know, the first amendment of the United States protects ALL speech, not just the stuff we agree with. They were not hurting anyone and had even organized the event with the city beforehand, and therefor did not break any laws. Antifa however, broke many laws, and members were charged with Assault and some were even charged with Attempted Murder.
THE WHITE MINORITY AND MY INTERACTIONS WITH THE LEFT
Now I am no journalist, nor am I even old enough to drink. But my name is Kappa, or my pen name is at least. I am 16 years old, living in the heart of Southern California, on the west coast of the United States. I am a Native American-White mix. And I am here to document what is happening in my beloved country in 2017, and why I think we could be facing the end of the Modern America. From this point on, this essay might contain very opinionated content, but please note that all the opinions are rooted in facts.
I have been living in the United States my whole life. I was born here, and I was raised in the early 20th century. I am in Generation Z, One of the most liberal generations in American History. For most of my life, I was liberal. Left winged. Even before I understood most political concepts, I was liberal at heart. I was raised as an Atheist, and that is how I remain to this day. But after hearing speakers such as Milo, and youtubers like Mr. Repzion, The Sargon of Akkad, etc., I have begun shifting to a more conservative viewpoint.
In 2017, Donald J Trump was elected president of the United States. While not entirely agreeing with all his views, I did support him, as he promised to fix our country’s overwhelming debt, and reduce the crime on the streets, something I was very familiar with, growing up in a crummy neighborhood in SoCal.
When I went to school on the day after the election, I was verbally abused by teachers, students, and I was even threatened with violence. Most of my school was made up of Hispanics whose parents had not legally immigrated from Mexico. One teacher even told me that “You must have supported Trump, seeing as how you want the whites to stay in power so you can be above the rest of us”. This, as much as it pains most people to believe, was blatant racism. But seeing as how most of my school district hated the very idea that our president was going to close the border, if I complained, I could be pinned for wasting faculty time.
The country was just as divided as my school after the election. Liberals and Democrats began taking violent action against the established government, and I was caught between the two communities I fell under, Minority and Majority.
THE PROBLEM TO THE EAST
Back to Politics, America is facing 3 major attacking forces: The East, The Middle East, and Ourselves.
The Problem in the East lies within the Korean Peninsula, in the dictatorship of North Korea. Over the last few years, The North Koreans have begun bolstering their Nuclear Weapons program, under the Kim regime. Their actions have broken the Geneva Convention’s Laws, the law’s governing war and how war should be conducted. Not only that, they have threatened the United States with Nuclear Attacks.
This deeply concerns me. Not only are we facing a country with a bad-shit insane leader, but they are targeting the West coast of the country, where my family and I live. These threats have done nothing but decrease my sense of security in my own home, knowing that if a nuclear bomb were to be dropped on Los Angeles, my family would be in direct danger.
The United States, along with the UN, have taken steps to protect my family and I, with South Korea prepared to shoot down any missiles coming from their Northern counterpart, and America pointing it’s entire nuclear arsenal at the tiny nation, prepared to turn the country into a parking lot, but that doesn’t make me feel much safer.
THE PROBLEM IN THE MIDDLE EAST, AND HOW IT IS GETTING TO MAINLAND AMERICA
Islam is a religion based in the Middle East. It follows a strict code of laws known as Shariah Law, which requires that Women be obedient to their husbands and kept out of the driver’s seat of vehicles, Gays be stoned to death publicly, and cheating women be publicly executed. While this problematic religion has oftentimes kept to itself and stayed within the confines of the Arabian Peninsula, Islam has finally reached the Mainland USA. Muslims and self-proclaimed Muslims are now everywhere in America, and along with them has come the threat of terrorism and war with the group calling themselves ISIS.
Islam is defended and praised by the millennial generation, who oftentimes know nothing about the religion itself. A video by MTV on the topic of the life of a homosexual Muslim (An Oxymoron) shows the blatant conflict that the old religion has with American beliefs. Americans cherish the rights given to women and the LGBT community, while Islam completely denies these rights.
Islam has been responsible for the attacks on September 11th, 2001, as well as the beheadings of various Americans in the Middle East. ISIS has taken the credit for these attacks, with the organization declaring war on the United States in the late 20th century.
THE PROBLEMS WITHIN THE COUNTRY AND WITHIN THE UNITED NATIONS
The United states was founded on the principles of free speech and equality. Laws are in place now to ensure that the freedoms of all Americans are protected. But the millennial generation has somehow convinced themselves that equality means the same thing as inferiority. The 3rd wave feminist movement in the country exemplifies this, believing that men should serve women, but not be given respect in return. Another example is the Black Lives Matter movement, in which a member of the organization told the media that “Whites should give up their houses to African Americans to repent for their ancestor’s sins”. Black Lives Matter has a history of using White Guilt against people however, so this does not surprise me.
The concept of racism has been with the country since the beginning, but no matter how much we try, we can’t seem to kill this cockroach of a system. However, the government, as much as people don’t believe it, is not to blame for racism in Modern America.
Racism is the discrimination of a group of people due to their ancestry or skin tone. Therefore, the verbal abuse that whites often receive for the actions of their ancestors would classify as racism, yet it is overlooked by most institutions. If people want a racism-free America, I would recommend practicing what you preach before asking for something.
Antifa came into the big picture when Trump became president of the US, defeating a Communist and a Woman in the campaign, to most people’s surprise. Because he is capitalist, white, male, straight, rich, and from an older generation, he fits right into the classification of people that leftists hate. Antifa took advantage of this unprecedented hatred and used it to grow in numbers, becoming a prominent militant group in America.
Antifa in 2017 has made a name for itself for assaulting innocent demonstrators in Charlottesville, vandalizing public property in the South for being “racist”, and starting a riot in UC Berkeley that left the college with $100,000 in damages to windows and the campus in general. After becoming known as a terrorist organization, they began organizing an armed revolution, set to take place on November 4th, 2017.
The United Nations responded to this by defending the organization, blaming the demonstrators in Charlottesville for the riot. On August 30th of 2017, the UN urged the United States to consider revoking the first amendment rights protecting free speech, to combat hate speech and bigotry. Of course, the US denied these requests, but the fact that countries without protections for the freedoms for their people are telling the “Land of the Free” to step down as a free country really rubs me wrong.
In California, The First Amendment might already be in the process of being revoked. A California Bill is in the process of being passed, in which anyone who willfully and repeatedly refuses to use a transgender’s preferred name and pronouns could face a $1,000 fine and up to a year in prison. This is a blatant ignorance of the first amendment.
A SUMMARY OF ALL OF THIS: WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR AMERICA?
If we don’t begin educating these ignorant people, America, for lack of a better phrase, will disintegrate before our eyes. States will begin receding, such as the proposed Calexit and recession of Texas, in which California or Texas would recede from the union indefinitely.
Antifa threatens the safety of millions of Americans, and as their numbers grow, the less capable that our police forces will be able to protect American Citizens from them. SJWs, the UN, and California Legislature all threaten the first amendment rights granted to all citizens by our forefathers. I would suggest government intervention on these domestic terrorists, cracking down on their cells in our country.
ISIS is becoming a more capable military force every day, and is threatening more terrorist attacks in the future, potentially deadly to innocent Americans. These people do not care about whether their victims are elderly, children, men or women, sick or able bodied, they only aim to kill innocent people. I suggest upping our presence in the Middle East, keeping our fellow countrymen and women safe.
North Korea is threatening the West Coast of our nation, and every day they can continue their operations, they get closer to killing millions of people. Are we really prepared to wait until Los Angeles or Seattle is in ruins to finally defend ourselves from the looming threat of annihilation? That is my question for the US government.
I have always loved my country, and I always will. America gives me many freedoms that I wish other countries had. It would make so many people happy to have the same freedoms we take for granted every day. But we are just one country. We should take the earliest opportunity to defend the freedoms we already have, or we will lose them all.
“I pledge allegiance, to the flag, of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands. One Nation, under god, indivisible, and with liberty and justice for all.”
