Dear law-abiding Americans,

You have done nothing wrong.

Being white is not a crime. Being a Trump voter is not a crime. Being a police officer sworn to “protect and serve” every day is not a crime. Being a non-white police officer proud to uphold and enforce law and order is not a crime. Being a black or brown or yellow American who rejects excuse-making for criminals is not a crime.

Rejecting collective guilt is not a crime. Refusing to acknowledge “white privilege” when you were born poor, or in a broken home, or with physical or psychological challenges, is not a crime. Embracing the historic American nation, instead of erasing it, is not a crime.

Enforcing your private property rights is not a crime. Teaching your wife and children to use a gun in self-defense is not a crime. Owning an AR-15 or two is not a crime.

Do not let the media, Hollywood, academics, or politicians gaslight you. Stop internalizing lies. Who are the criminals? Who are the heroes? Who are the makers and keepers of peace? Who are the sowers and reapers of hate?

The Proud Boys who have guarded their communities and country for the past three years, were lone citizen soldiers in the battle against Antifa that no one else on the ground wanted to fight. The group and its leader, Gavin McInnes, have suffered greatly for trying to stop the violence now raging nationwide. McInnes has been deplatformed everywhere and falsely labeled a “white supremacist.” Scores of Proud Boys of all colors have lost their jobs after being doxxed by Antifa vigilantes. Two Proud Boys are in prison, railroaded by New York Democrats, after a Kafkaesque trial in which the cop-hating Antifa “victims” who lured the Proud Boys into an October 2018 street brawl refused to press charges or testify.

Their crime? These unapologetic Americans stood on their feet, not on their knees.

Journalists and photographers who documented Antifa violence for the past three years, such as Andy Ngo, Chelly Bouferrache, and Brandon Brown in Portland, Oregon, have endured physical assaults, death threats, and harassment. Many others have gone into hiding and suffer in silence.

Their crime? Exposing Antifa anarchy, standing eye to eye against their assailants, on their feet, not on their knees.

Working-class Irish, German, and Polish-American men of Fishtown, a northeast Philadelphia suburb, came together this week to prevent their neighborhood from being pillaged and burned in the name of “social justice” like the rest of the City of Brotherly Riots. They banded together outside the 26th police precinct, armed with bats and golf clubs, and faced down Black Lives Matter protesters who were there to taunt and provoke the cops.

ORDER IT NOW

Turn off CNN and tune into the facts on the ground. At least 25 Philadelphia cops have been hurt during mob violence this week. It’s an all-out war on the thin blue line. At least 150 cops have been assaulted — four nearly murdered — in New York City as of Tuesday afternoon. Two Buffalo, N.Y., LEOs were run over late Monday night. In addition, fifty-one members of the U.S. Park Police were injured, a Cincinnati cop grazed by a bullet aimed at his head, 4 St. Louis officers shot, one retired St. Louis police captain killed, a Las Vegas Metro cop shot, and a federal officer shot and killed in Oakland—all in the name of peace, tolerance, and reparations.

Yet, against this bloody and retributive backdrop, Democrat leaders in Philadelphia who have coddled looters all week condemned the peacekeeping Fishtown Brigade as a “mob” of “vigilantes.”

Their crime? Standing tall on their feet, not on their knees.

Scot Mendelson, a world record-holding powerlifter, protected his southern California gym on Monday afternoon. “If you’re going to destroy something that somebody worked so hard to build, well, you know what, maybe you should be put down,” he told Fox 11 Los Angeles. “You walk through my door, you threaten my life, I’m aiming for the head.”

Mendelson’s crime? Standing muscle-bound and honor-bound on his feet, not on his knees.

Proud and good people hold their chins and guns up in a crisis. It is how Korean grocers responded when the police abandoned them during the Los Angeles riots in 1992. It is how armed small business owners of all colors are now facing an onslaught of crazed, greedy, and evil barbarians hell-bent on destroying every enforcement bulwark that protects our civil society–from our borders to our neighborhoods to the White House.

Weakness is not strength. Confessing sins for which you bear no guilt is not noble. It makes me sick to my stomach to see virtue-signaling police chiefs kneeling before barking rioters calling them “pigs.” I am nauseated by the sight of sobbing white people groveling for forgiveness before sadistic Black Lives Matter demagogues—as if this will appease the unappeasable. It will not and never will.

America, straighten your spines. Unbow your heads. No home or nation was ever saved by kowtowing to invaders or ransackers. Unless you are praying to God, get up off your knees.

  1. I could not agree with this article more. I feel that there is nothing to apologize for . Past acts of racism are past acts. All Americans have the opportunity to make life better for their families and themselves.
    The president is not perfect, but no person is. Was he doing his best to make life here better? I believe he was doing that. I think there are forces doing all they can to defeat him and his policies and will keep trying anything to gain the power back they think they deserve.
    Keep the faith that they will fail in trying to take down this way of life.
    Love this country and all who are fortunate to call America home.

  2. This had to be said, and you said it, Thank You !

  3. This is absolutely spot on! No amount of graveling or appeasement will satisfy the black community. The black community is tired of all the “inequalities“ that they are experiencing (no mention, of course, as to how they contribute to those inequalities), and are not interested in well wishes at this point. The black community only wants two things: political power or money.

    As a political concession to the black community, I predict that there will be an acceleration of bail reform and that many misdemeanors and felonies (robbery, burglary?) will be decriminalized. I also predict an increase of the “Ferguson effect“ across the country as police officers will not want to be involved with policing blacks. Inevitably, the crime rate will skyrocket in black communities across the country.

  4. After watching the the protests in USA and UK and the rest of the world. All chanting black lives matter!!. Well let’s have a look at the continent of Africa. Millions of black not white people die there everyday through war, starvation, disease, mass genocide etc.(Rawanda genocide over one million dead) Families get hacked to death with machetes in the worst possible scenarios. I don’t see the black community in a privileged country like USA speaking or fundraising about them. If they are it’s kept very quiet.How many wealthy black celebrities give to this cause. I would bet it’s minimal. George Floydd was murdered no question about that, and the officers should be rightfully charged. If people think they can destroy and loot other peoples lives and get away with it is insane. The day we hide our heads in the sand and let these thugs run rampant is absolutely ludicrous. The police are there to protect and serve, the day they stop is an end to society as we know it. It’s the lack of education , decency towards fellow human beings is the problem. Round up these problem thugs and deal with with them accordingly.

    I've offered a detailed synopsis of this book on other threads, but I will just suggest it here. Basically, it confirms everything that you have observed about Africa. I recommend reading "Out of America: A Black Man Confronts Africa" by Keith Richburg.

    For a remarkable insight into the twisted mind of an African in America, you should read "Soul On Ice" by Eldridge Cleaver. There is an imagined justification for every heinous crime that a Negro can commit against a White person, and none too latent encouragement to engage in them. He reveals the lust/hate emotions that Black Men have for White Women and exposes his desire to humiliate and harm them. My copy proclaims that it is "An American Classic."

  5. Amen again, Michelle!! Anybody with any sense should be long past tired of this recycled garbage spewed by the lamestream media and their comrades and stand ready to defend their own property, lives, and most importantly…God. I said stand ready vs. stand down, which is what the unwashed want. Actions against folks such as yourself are one of the reasons why I quit ‘social media’ three years ago-and my life is so much more full of peace. I only watch youtube begrudgingly and that is so I can hear the truth, the whole truth, AND ONLY the truth from a select few, such as yourself.

  6. I think most people are afraid to go to prison. Otherwise you’d see massive pushback. The guy in Philly who shot a looter raiding his gun shop was hauled in for questioning. The authorities do not have his back. Going to prison is a deal breaker for most people. I pray this business owner is left alone.

    You have hinted at one of the problems: Americans can defend themselves, but when they do, they risk time in prison. At the very least, they will be dragged into court and suffer the monetary expense of a qualified defense, plus the spine-chilling fear of prison time should they be found guilty when only defending themselves.

    This is a real problem: Americans afraid to defend themselves, as per Amendment II, in fear of being arrested, charged and taken to court for only fighting off those who would harm them, steal from them, rape them, or kill them.

    We are over-regulated -- and this does NOT mean we are a "well regulated militia," as stated in Our Constitution.

    We have the Constitutional right to be armed and to defend ourselves, and that right has already been grossly eroded by legal attacks and court cases. It should be much simpler than this, and it truly is for any real American. It was.

  8. The permanent black victims demand whites apologize for being white. Well, no, go to hell. Blacks are more racist than whites. Blacks need to apologize for being black first.

  9. Teaching your wife and children how to shoot? What is this, the 1700s? I taught my husband how to shoot a gun. Give me a break; you’re the one on your knees…in front of men.

  11. Michelle,
    Thank you for saying what so many sissified folks are afraid to say.
    Also, maybe if there was a nationwide, week long, “blue flu” the dialogue would change.

  12. The ‘thin blue line’ is the problem. They only protect and serve their paymasters in the political realm.

    Get rid of the police and see what happens. People will arm themselves and the invaders will be taken out in body bags. Problem solved.

  13. People kneel because that’s the preferred position when kissing someone’s ass.

  14. Seeing the National Guard take the knee to black looters is more than I can bear.

    America is totally fucked.

    • Agree: Pat Kittle
  15. Thank you for your inspiring words, Michelle. It’s astonishing and disturbing that you have been expelled from Twitter. Your enemies are both ruthless and underhanded. Since they can’t defeat you in an open forum, they want you censored and deplatformed. Their ultimate target is Free Speech itself.

  19. THANK YOU for reminding us all that the Proud Boys were railroaded in kangaroo-court trials to serve draconian prison sentences.

    I know you won’t open your mouth to defend the same principle for James Fields, who is every bit the victim of the Communist elites as the Proud Boys, so I’ll say it.

    FREE JAMES FIELDS. FREE THE PROUD BOYS. At the very least, give then both new trials. Or more accurately: fair trials. Real trials.

    America will be judged, and not just by posterity, for her monstrous crimes against her own in this century alone. And to all fellow travelers who don’t consider themselves Communist scum because “Me? I’m not that – I’m simply progressive/liberal/center-left”….but more importantly, who stand with the despoilers and the parasites mostly because there is strength in numbers and besides, nothing very bad is going to happen to us, we’re in charge now ….. I urge you to examine just these past few months, when What Can’t Happen Here happened like a ton of falling bricks….and every few days, what could not get any worse got much worse, as Democratic mayors and governors gleefully helped make our country a virtual Hell on Earth.

    So say the words “James Fields”, Michelle – you literally have nothing left to lose now.

    The term "well-regulated" as used in the Second Amendment to the Constitution had nothing to do with "regulation by law" and everything to do with being well-disciplined, equipment well cared for and in good working order, and being able to take careful aim to achieve the objective.
    In 18th century parlance, the term "regulate" was used to define being in "well-working order" such as an accurate clock, not "regulation by law".

  25. I’ve been telling people that I’m The Last White Man in America. I’ve been doing that for a long time, but I’ve been increasingly vocal about it the last few days. At grocery stores, I’ve looked in the direction of my smirking, obese, Football fixated, sad-sack peers, saying, “others can get on their knees and grovel it they want to, but I’m not going to do it,” and I don’t get any argument. No one pipes up and says, “Me Neither!” But, no one, including the Big Negroids standing around with their mouths agape, have suggested that I was going to be forced to submit. They seem to instinctively know that I am not just Whistlin’ Dixie.

    But, it seems odd that Black people constantly remind everyone about how Black they are and what it means to be Black and the problems that confront Black people and all that Black people have done and all of their Black dreams and Black, Black, Black, Black, Black, Black, Black….. But, it often seems that I am the only White Man that loudly and proudly boasts of my ethnicity. That defends it. That is willing to take a stand for it.

    Additionally, for the last decade and a half, I have been unapologetically Confederate in speech, dress and manner. I am readily identifiable as being a Southern White Man, and I live in a large Metropolitan area where there are many minority neighborhoods. I grew up in a majority Black neighborhood that has become largely Hispanic. I’ve been fighting since grade school. I went from being known as Punk Ass White Boy as a Child to earning the title of Crazy Ass White Boy as a Teenager. The only step up from that is Bad Mother Fucker, and I border on it. If I was a little younger, in a little better shape, and a lot bigger, I’d be the Baddest Mother Fucker Alive! Well, anyway, that’s my attitude and it’s gotten me in and out of trouble. I’ve been ganged up on and I’ve been beaten down, but I still keep fighting.

    I only wish that there were other White men who had the courage to say what they think and be who they are. But, then again, they probably don’t have an identity outside of their occupations and favorite sports franchise. I long ago learned that those from the suburbs haven’t had the same experiences that I have. They seem to be completely emasculated in the face of the Negro. I’ve had a few White people in the past, though none lately, that have tried to confront me about a Confederate Flag. I told one man, whose wife tried to chime in, that I hope she gets raped by a gang of Negroes and told him that he would probably masturbate while it was happening. I berated him for having to rely on his wife to speak for him. This was in a very public setting with other people watching. The shock and disbelief was priceless. The woman began to shriek hysterically and he hung his head while his testicles shriveled and disappeared. I can guarantee you that they went home wishing that they had never tried to scold me.

    For nearly two decades, I have been convinced that I am born and bred for this. I Thank God that I got an education that you can’t obtain in college. Negrosity 101 to Graduation with a Phd from The School of Hard Knocks. Many other White people are just now taking their primers. We should use this time to offer other White people assistance and to make plans for a rendezvous in the event of a collapse. White People Helping White People. Not an organized Charity, a grassroots Movement for which the time has come.
