In numerous cities across America, Antifa thugs have used the death of George Floyd to riot and loot. Liberal cities have forced their cops to stand down, allowing chaos to spread even more. But in Polk Country, Florida, the sheriff had a different view. He made it very clear what he’d do to rioters and looters and told them what his residents would do, if they invaded their homes.
It’s no secret that the demonstrations over George Floyd’s death have been co-opted by radical anarchists. These criminal thugs, organized and prepared, just want to plunge our nation into panic and fear. They do not care about the death of an innocent man, they simply want to inflict as much pain as possible.
Yet many state and local leaders have not mobilized their law enforcement as they should. You know who they are: Democrat politicians. In blue cities nationwide, cops are not allowed to prevent rioters and looters from burning their communities to the ground. Why? You’d have to ask those mayors. But there are plenty of other cities where the leaders can actually lead. They will not let peaceful demonstrations be used to fuel violence against law-abiding citizens.
And in Polk Country, well, the sheriff had some powerful words for these thugs.
[Sheriff Grady Judd] stated bluntly, “But please understand: let there be no misunderstanding at all that if you come here to riot, to loot, to injure people, we’re gonna lock you up in the county jail before ‘quick.’ And it’s not one agency or the other; it’s all of us working together.”
He held up a chilling picture of a rioter dressed with a professional mask and clothes to seal out pepper spray or other chemical agents, saying, “This person did not come to Lakeland yesterday to exercise his First Amendment rights.” …
“Because the people of Polk County like guns, they have guns; I encourage them to own guns, and they’re going to be in their homes tonight with their guns loaded, and if you try to break into their homes to steal, to set fires, I’m highly recommending they blow you back out of the house with their guns. So, leave the community alone.” [Source: Daily Wire]
Sheriff Judd was not messing around. He, unlike so many cops in liberal cities, was willing to arrest rioters for the good of his community. He told rioters, point blank, that his cops would throw them in jail. There would be no “standing down,” if punk Antifa scum came to smash windows, burn buildings, and loot local businesses.
He then made it very clear what would happen to these criminals if they tried to break into people’s homes. The gun-owning residents of Polk County would blow them “back out of the house.”
Not mincing words there, I can tell you. In liberal states, gun owners could face penalties if they shot someone on their property. Even if they were defending their lives, they might face jail time. But the sheriff of Polk County had another take. He stated very clearly that Americans had the right to defend themselves. And if Antifa anarchist were stupid enough to break into their homes, they would be shot dead.
You have to wonder why more police aren’t being this clear? Do they want riots to destroy their cities? Are they so afraid of the media that they can’t do their job and end this nightly chaos?
Or are their hands tied, because corrupt, liberal leaders deny them the chance to protect their cities?
I think you know the answer to that. Democrats are too cowardly to stand up to rioters and looters. They fear they’d be called “racist” for calling out the white anarchists destroying mostly black communities. So, because of their lack of leadership, thousands of Americans suffer.
At least in Polk County, Americans can sleep safe tonight. So long as they have a Walther beside their bed.
