From Ersel Schuster, a former multi-term McHenry County Board member and Seneca Township Supervisor:
A Retired Public Official’s Lament (Part 1)
It is fair to say that most Americans are proud of their country.
It is also fair to state that for centuries, millions put their lives in danger to gain access to our country so they could share in the promise of our Constitution.
Knowing this, many ask, why?
Why are so many Americans exposing such raging anger toward our country?
Why do they feel the need to riot, loot and destroy the property of fellow Americans as witnessed over the last few weeks?
What is driving this hatred and anger?
Could one reason for this disruption and spiteful activity be cover for what those mired in the DC swamp realize is about to be exposed?
Following three plus years of the “Russia” hype, we are learning that legislators, people we have elected to office… in coordination with people within government, have been working behind closed doors to
undermine this president and our great country.
We are learning that elected officials are openly working in concert with Antifa, Black Lives Matter activists (BLM) and many in the gullible “woke” crowd, as they rip their communities apart.
We are learning that infiltrated into these groups of protesters are people desperate to tear down anything that exposes our rich history and the goldmine of opportunity America provides to anyone willing to take advantage of it.
Our prosperity does not fit the narrative they want to inject into the country.
Studying history, two famous quotes by Nikita Khrushchev, First Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, state: “We do not have to invade the United States, we will destroy you from within.”
And: “You Americans are so gullible. No, you will not accept communism outright, but we will keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you will finally wake up and find you already have. We’ll so weaken your economy until you’ll fall like overripe fruit into our hands.”
As our “woke” generation, encouraged by Antifa and BLM activists, storm the streets of our major cities; it is not much of a stretch to realize that we have come face-to-face with the fruits of Nikita’s promises.
