    Rioters in Seattle, Portland are seditionists, not protesters

    Cal Thomas: Rioters in Seattle, Portland are seditionists, not protesters

    If these anarchists are allowed to get away with their crimes, there will be more anarchy.


    By Cal Thomas | Tribune Media Services


    President Trump sends more federal forces to Portland as violence escalates in US cities

    Cities across the U.S. see a clear escalation in violence at protests for racial justice; Dan Springer reports from Seattle.


    The violence perpetrated in the streets of cities across America continues because state and local elected officials (all Democrats) refuse to do what is necessary to stop it. These acts no longer fit the definition of protest. Rather, sedition defines them: "incitement of discontent or rebellion against a government."

    President Trump has ordered agents from the Department of Homeland Security to quell the disturbances in Portland, Ore., and Chicago, which appear to be coordinated, and stop them from spreading to other cities. Last week, the White House announced the deployment of what it terms "federal assets," which William Barr defined as "street agents and investigators," to targeted cities experiencing the most violence.


    Some contend the president is exceeding his constitutional authority and what's known as the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878, which "prohibits the use of U.S. military forces to perform the tasks of civilian law enforcement such as arrest, apprehension, interrogation, and detention unless explicitly authorized by Congress."


    DONALD TRUMP, JR.: BIDEN WOULDN’T REDUCE RIOTING AND CRIME – HE’S CONTROLLED BY LEFT-WING PUPPET MASTERS


    It may be splitting hairs to say DHS forces are not the military, but the larger question is this: Should the president allow federal property to be destroyed and people shot, given the refusal of some mayors and governors to intervene? Or, for the sake of preserving "domestic tranquility," saving human life and protecting public and private property take the action he has taken?


    Perhaps the media should ask people whose jobs have been disrupted, their businesses destroyed, their work suspended -- or ended -- if they are OK with allowing the rioting to continue. Pundits and activists can pontificate all they want from the safety of their basements and the security of uninterrupted paychecks, but what about the victims? Have they no right to be safe and secure?


    More from Opinion





    A federal law known as 18 U.S. Code 2385 and titled "Advocating overthrow of Government" says this:

    "Whoever knowingly or willingly advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any state, Territory, District or Possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein ... and if two or more persons conspire to commit any offense named in this section, each shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction." (Emphasis mine.)


    That sounds clear to me, and it should be clear to everyone else, that there are forces that wish to destroy not only the presidency of Donald Trump and prevent his reelection, but who hate the country. These protesters, who appear to be mostly spoiled, mostly White and mostly young, have likely been radicalized in their universities and on social media.

    They are destroyers, not builders. Elected leaders who refuse to stop them are as guilty of abetting a crime as the driver of the getaway car after a bank robbery.


    The president is right to put a stop to this just as he would be right to order the military to oppose an outside enemy seeking to destroy the nation. If these anarchists are allowed to get away with their crimes, there will be more anarchy.


    Peace through strength is not just a slogan to be invoked when fighting foreign enemies and terrorists. It is also a policy that will deter this spoiled mob that has no gratitude for a nation that has given them everything and to which they have returned little.

    They should be arrested, prosecuted and locked up so that order may be restored.

    Seattle Police recover fireworks, bear mace from van parked outside East Precinct

    Seattle Police Department

    SEATTLE – A search of a van found parked outside of the East Precinct during protests on July 25 turned up fireworks, bear mace, improvised spike strips and nails, believed to be used during Saturday’s protest police say.

    The Seattle Police Department announced the investigation Wednesday.


    Police say a search warrant was issued for the van which officers observed following protesters as they marched northbound on along 12th Avenue on Saturday.


    The van then parked outside of the East Precinct around the same time that explosions occurred outside of the precinct, police say. The department says explosives were also thrown at officers and one blew a hole in the north wall of the precinct.


    According to the police department, a witness told Seattle Police that they saw the same van parked on Broadway earlier in the day.


    Police say the witness told them they saw a group of people standing around the back of the van with what appeared to be improvised shields, gas masks, baseball bats and a large assortment of pyrotechnic explosives inside the van.


    Update on investigation into Saturday's protest (KOMO News)

    During the protest, police say a group of individuals used Molotov cocktails to set several trailers on fire at a construction site at the King County youth detention facility.

    Several businesses in the area were also damaged as the crowd marched north to the department’s East Precinct.


    Police say a total of 59 officers were injured and 45 people were arrested during Saturday's protest. It is unclear how many protesters were injured.


    The investigation into Saturday's protest remains ongoing.
