Parson: Reichstag Burns: Trump vows Justice will be served




By John J. Kirkwood or "Parson" - 

Breaking News: Republican Presidential candidate, Donald J. Trump came out this morning and condemned last night’s burning of the Reichstag: “We will find these thugs and the culprits will be brought to justice.”

In other news, Trump campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, is being treated for 3rd degree burns to his hands that he suffered while cleaning the family grill. He will have to postpone the deposition that was scheduled for his alleged assault of Breitbart journalist, Michelle Fields.


Yes, BLM and MoveOn.org are scum who don’t believe in the American way but “Don’t Cry for me Argentina,” – your candidate chose a liberal college in a liberal city to put on a show. If UIC didn’t screw him, Rahm Emanuel would have.

Was this purposeful or just naive? You decide.

Frank Luntz tweeted, “Trump schedules rallies in middle of cities, where he knows they’ll be met by many protesters – and media coverage,” and shared the line from Denzel Washington’s Training Day – “This sh** is chess, it’s not checkers.”

If only Chicago had that strong commitment to peace that the Chinese displayed in Tiananmen Square, that Donald Trump admires so much.

Yes, the fault lies with fascist scum who interrupted this event but I’m not shedding one tear for the sudden loss of “Freedom of Speech” for a guy who has had more free air time from the Pravda Press than Kim Kardashian’s nude selfie.

This is Chicago. By the way, a city which Trump maneuvered quite adeptly when he was building a Tower on the river. There were no protests then, all the liberal candidates that are condemning him now were cashing his crony checks then.

So Trumpty Dumpty can tell his story walking. He had to know what would happen in Chicago. And maybe he should have Cowboy’d up and gave his speech in front of the building that bears his name.

If you want to throw blame around it goes something like this: 65% BLM and MoveOn.org, 25% the guy who encourages his crowds to get physical with protesters, throw them out, punch them in the nose and he’ll pick up the tab, and 10% the staffers who put the event together – that is, if it wasn’t contrived to produce an effect.

If it was contrived, then congrats to the propagandists in the campaign who are pulling the strings and banging to drums to get the sheeple to dance. Burning the Chicago Reichstag was a great move!

Conservative columnist Steve Deace put it this way:

“Have you ever wondered what would happen when warring factions of phony victims — white nationalists on the Right, and Occupy/Black Lives Matters types on the Left — feel mutually emboldened to display their thuggery?  Well, now you know.

This must be the unity Ben Carson was seeking this morning. Ironic this comes the very next night after Trump said his protesters were cruising for a bruising and he praised Tiananmen Square.

This is like watching the Bolsheviks and the Mensheviks, or the communists fighting the nationalists on the streets of Berlin in the 1920s. It’s what happens when a Constitution and moral tradition that binds a people is abandoned, and everyone does what is wise in their own eyes. And it grieves my soul.

  1. Parson, I think you miss a point. What we saw happen is a direct result of the most divisive president of my lifetime. Yes, America destroyer Obama made this happen. Its true Trump knows how to get attention, but the fact is Trump should be able to go to ANY city in America and not have to worry about domestic terrorists. I didn’t call them demonstrators because they ceased being demonstrators once they became violent and oppressive of people’s rights. I also believe the theater in Chicago was for Hillary Clinton’s benefit, it will create an issue for Trump to deal with when he and Hitlery go head to head for the presidency. Clinton has so much baggage they had to do something for her. Chicago democrats conspired to orchestrate the violent aggression against Trump supporters and the refusal of the Chicago police department to do anything to protect the Trump supporters from the violent liberals. Censorship is the tool of fascists. If protestors from the Tea Party showed that type of hostility against supporters for Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton how fast do you think they would have been thrown in jail? Would the Tea Party been allowed to censor Hillary Clinton? Not a chance! Anyone who thinks justice is blind in Obama’s America isn’t paying attention. Hitler’s Nazi party used similar tactics, not difficult to see who the domestic terrorist democrats learned from. You can bet Rahmbo and Bill “the bomber” Ayers are still laughing about it, Rahm’s corrupt PD didn’t do their job to protect and serve and you can bet the farm the order to stand down came from Rahm and Obama’s Department of NO Justice.. They should have arrested the violent terrorists to preserve the freedom of the Trump supporters. Anarchy is apparently the law in Chicago. The Trump supporters were oppressed by fascist Chicago democrats and lost their right to hear Trump speak. Trump had his right to free speech denied. Freedom stealing Chicago organized crime spit in the face of over 10,000 Trump supporters. Liberal city or not Trump should have been able to speak, this is supposed to be America, you remember, land of the free….
    Illinois constitution: Article 1, SECTION 4
    All persons may speak, write and publish freely…

    Welcome to fascist America!

    Hey freedom stealing organized crime, otherwise known as Chicago gov’t, we all know you knew what was going to happen and you did nothing to protect the freedom well over 10,000 Trump supporters.
    My question is: why hasn’t Bill Ayers been arrested for inciting a violent riot?
    “The government is the potent omnipresent teacher. For good or ill it teaches the whole people by its example. Crime is contagious. If the government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy. To declare that the end justifies the means to declare that the government may commit crimes would bring terrible retribution.” ~ Justice Louis D. Brandeis, (1856-1941) US Supreme Court Justice
    The good citizens of this state don’t have to tolerate your tyranny!
    From Webster’s – Tyranny: cruel and unfair treatment by people with power over others.

  2. Did you hear Tony Fitzpatrick, Chicago’s very own professional hippie, on CNN yesterday morning complaining about Donald Trump?
    He was complaining because he went to UIC to protest, and Trump disappointed him by not showing up.
    A great example of the ‘damned-if-you-do, damned-if-you-don’t’ position Trump is in.

  3. I know Parson Kirkwood as a very honorable man and one of great moral and religious convictions, but he is wrong in his characterization of Donald Trump. Has Pastor Kirkwood ever watched a Trump rally? Did Kirkwood hear the rally where Dr. Carson endorsed Trump and will now advise Trump on education? Did Kirkwood hear the rally where Phyllis Schlafly endorsed Trump. In her talk with Trump, Phyllis presented Trump with what conservatives consider to be the principles upon which conservatism is based. Trump agreed to all the principles and promised that he would appoint conservative judges like Anthony Scalia. Then there is Senator Jeff Session’s support of Trump. Sessions is advising Trump on illegal immigration and the hoax of climate change.
    So under Trump, Rev. Kirkwood, you do have a candidate who meets your criteria for this year’s Republican presidential candidate. Ted Cruz is honorable, but I wish you would read an article published on 3/10/2016: Ted Cruz, “A Bush By Another Name.” Rather than the outsider Cruz claims to be, Ted Cruz is the ultimate insider, a former top Bush 41 policy aide and globalist, Ivy Leaguer, and establishment insider. Cruz is being funded by political insiders like Goldman Sachs and Citibank. His TPP support is the proof in the pudding. In contrast, Trump isn’t beholden to anyone.

  4. http://www.cleveland.com/open/index.ssf/2016/03/donald_trump_in_cleveland_how.html Frank Putz hasn’t gotten a single thing right with his out of focus groups. He had praise for Kasich right before Michigan after Faux News abandoned Rubio. Kasich went on to lose just about every county in the state besides Ann Arbor. Do you know where else Trump had a massive rally? CLEVELAND, just like a bunch of other cities. What is he supposed to do, NOT expand the tent? Isn’t going into Democrat areas what the party has been claiming candidates need to do? At least Trump actually gets people to his rallies who used to be Democrat.
