Dry Violence 1924

Ku-Klux Khristan Love

Martial law was declared shortly after an explosion at a corn sugar plant. Almost all of the alcohol consumed in the USA during prohibition was made from corn sugar. From the same edition:

The Glucose Trust, The Yeast Trust

Corn Sugar produced 95% of all moonshine (link)

The Ku-Klux Klan were fanatical enforcers of prohibition, and were given plenty of leeway when it came to dealing with the subjugated recipients of Christian tough love, thanks o the New York Times portrayal of Blacks on the eve of signing of the Harrison Act. In its 08 FEB 1914 edition. Ten years after, in 1924, it was the Demon Rum that threatened the very foundations of civilization. So an upstream corn sugar plant blows up, and the Klan involves Federal troops in looting operations 82 years before George Waffen Bush funds faith-based looters on asset forfeiture rampages to wreck the economy. Here’s the last of the story…

Faith-based asset forfeiture looting

82 years before Bush Jr faith-based asset-forfeiture Crash

The present situation in Williamson county developed when citizens said to have affiliated with the Ku Klux Klan caused prohibition enforcement officers to come into the county and conduct raids. The officers deputized between 300 and 400 citizens, many of whom were armed when the raids were carried out.
The first raid was staged December 22, when posses, headed by the enforcement officers, swept over the county making wholesale arrests. W.A. Peters, police magistrate and a member of a raiding party at West Frankfort, a small mining town, was wounded by two foreigners, and two foreigners were wounded when they resisted arrest. One hundred and thirty-six arrests were made. The second raid was made on January 5 and 50 arrests were made.

KLAN ACTIVITIES

–A report that the Ku Klux Klan had contributed $3000 for law enforcement in the county was denied, but it inflamed those opposed to the hooded organization. The raids were conducted without the knowledge of Sheriff Galligan. It was intimated he was not told of the movement because the news might “leak out.”
The Klan staged numerous parades in different parts of the county and there quickly sprang up an anti-Klan organization known as the Knights of the Flaming Circle. Clashes between the organizations were narrowly averted on several occasions.
Sheriff Galligan told Adj. General Black today that the raids conducted by the federal officers and citizens had become more than mere law enforcement raids. He charged irresponsible purposes has seized upon them to burn buildings and rob. Only the presence of troops could keep order, he said. (Aurora Daily Star 09JAN1924 1)

Flag-burning

POLAND, 1939, Ten people executed for tearing down the German flag. Radios confiscated, censorship imposed. But that was then and over there. Besides, even though under the National Socialist Program Germany was a Christian nation, it couldn’t happen here, right?

Not so fast… In Nixon’s America it was patriotic to burn women, kids, houses and villages the Political State had listed as infested with commie atheists. But all hell broke loose when Christian America’s equivalent of “Jews”–pot-smoking hippies who thought only of themselves–dared to desecrate the symbol of the monopoly on the use of coercive and deadly force as a protest against the exact same involuntary servitude listed in the Declaration of Independence as cause for its overthrow and replacement. This was the part that says:

“[The King] constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the Executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.”

To facilitate comprehension this passage was translated by HL Mencken:

“He grabbed our own people when he found them in ships on the ocean, and shoved guns into their hands, and made them fight against us, no matter how much they didn’t want to.”

Granted, conscripts are usually ordered to kill foreigners, but even to this day involuntary servitude as executioners of individuals in other jurisdictions is legal because the Supreme Court declared it so based on the laws of such exemplary icons of freedom as China, Bulgaria, Greece, Germany, Nicaragua, Peru, Russia, Serbia, and Turkey. In practically the same breath the elderly and exempt Bench-sitters declared it a felony to hand out pamphlets on which were written the Thirteenth Amendment. That decision from a century ago, unlike the prior Dred Scott decision upholding the sanctity of slavery, is the Law of the Land today. But surely the maniacal frenzy of collectivism that spawned it is gone, right?

Here is a quote from the President–not of National Socialist Germany–but of These United States, after failing to obtain a Constitutional Amendment to make burning a flag a felony:

The President: “I don’t view that as partisanship. I think respect for the flag transcends political party. And I think what I’ve said here is American. It isn’t Republican or Democrat; it isn’t liberal or conservative; and I just feel very, very strongly about it. And perhaps I haven’t been quite as emotional as I feel about it, but I want to take this opportunity to say protest should not extend to desecration of the unique symbol of America, and that is our flag.” This same father of another U.S. President then said: “It is an emotional issue, and I am firmly positioned in favor of overturn of Roe V Wade. And that’s my position, and I’m not going to change that position. But I don’t want to see the divisiveness that whole issue causes split this country. And yet the decision is going to be – I don’t know what they’re going to decide, but my position on it is very clear.” (GHW Bush Papers 1989 Vol. I  808)

The Republican Party, always an enemy of individual rights, wrecked the US economy through prohibitionist asset-forfeiture looting that turned its militarized police forces into roving gangs of predators. That is not fiscal conservatism, but rather, mystical vandalism of the nation’s economy and economies in all foreign countries to which such policies are exported.

The Libertarian Party platform calls for freeing the USA from the 1848 Manifesto income tax, from military conscription in violation of the Thirteenth Amendment and abolition of the venal and selective prohibitionism now crowding our prisons with individuals who have harmed no one. Every libertarian vote makes part of that platform a reality.
