(May 11, 2021) — Americans, please turn to year 2008 and try to imagine getting a phone call from the police homicide division in the late afternoon as Mrs. Danielle Bologna did on that tragic day in June. While the police were speaking to her calmly, she was not able to absorb what they were saying. She was rendered speechless by the gruesome words.
But she felt the stab of their serious tone and their shocking notification.–“Your husband and two sons were shot and killed today in a road rage incident. We will need you to identify the bodies.”
You are a wife. You are a mother. You love your family with every fiber in your body. Your love is instinctual, ferocious. It influences every decision you make. Right now, you are swept by the immediate undertow. It’s turbulent and surreal at the same time. The floodgates soon open wide. The assassin of your husband, Anthony, and your sons, Michael and Andrew, is an illegal alien from El Salvador and a member of the extremely violent Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) gang. He has killed before and unaccountably been given several free passes in San Francisco by then-District Attorney Kamala Harris.
Americans, Now Turn to Year 2015
Now imagine a young, vivacious 32-year-old woman enjoying a walk down San Francisco Pier 14 with her father. The air is scented with sea salt. Father and daughter exchange the banter that loving parents have with their grown children. All of a sudden, the young woman feels the agonizing pain of her heart being ripped apart and in July 2015, Kate Steinle lay limp in her father’s arms., with her last dying breath begging, “Help me, Dad.”
Illegal alien Jose Inez Garcia Zarate, in one of his several arrests, was taken to the San Francisco County Jail to await murder charges. However, the powers-that-be refused to hold him until U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) could remove him from the country. Instead, they released him onto the streets of San Francisco.
Then-Governor Jerry Brown extended San Francisco’s “sanctuary city” mandate to cover every city in the entire state. State Attorney General Kamala Harris, in response to the cold-blooded murder of Kate Steinle, displayed a terrifying lack of humanity and compassion when she declared: “Let’s not react to one specific case, when we are looking at a national problem.”
The grieving Steinle family now found themselves in the crosshairs of Sanctuary State law which panders to illegals and destroys American citizens with help from a State Attorney General with ice coursing through her veins.
Americans, Once Again, Turn to Year 2018
His name was Ronil Singh and he was 33 years old. Imagine achieving the American dream when you were only in your twenties. Ronil was born in Fiji and came legally to the United States. At the age of 26, he achieved his lifelong aspiration of becoming a law enforcement officer for the California city of Newman.
Ronil and his wife, Anamika, took a picture in front of their Christmas tree to celebrate and record the first Christmas with their five-month-old baby son. Five hours later he was gunned down by an illegal immigrant gang member, Paulo Virgen Mendoza from Mexico, leaving a young widow and a fatherless son.
He was doing his job as a police officer when he pulled over a truck under suspicion of driving while intoxicated. The suspect had two previous DUI offenses. He did not want another. He shot Officer Singh in cold blood and then tried to escape to Mexico. But he was ultimately arrested, tried, convicted and handed a life sentence.
Singh’s experience is every American’s nightmare. His life was cut short by someone who was in this country illegally, is dangerous, does not care nor respect American law nor her citizens. Singh’s brother Reggie openly cries for his lost sibling. He tells Americans, “I do not want any other family’s law enforcement officer to go through that.” The Singhs were once like all young, growing American families. Today, they are broken by a legal system that prefers law-breakers to law-abiders.
Rubber-Fence Boundaries, Corrupt Politicians and Collateral Damage
Joe Biden, whose presidency is implausible at best and allegedly perhaps a perpetrated coup, is quickly turning this country into vitriolic camps of Americans who despise one another. While we are busy hurling arguments, insults and threats at one another, we are losing our families, neighbors, friends and legal citizens to an alarming upsurge in crime and a virtual tsunami of illegals—many testing positive for Covid 19—pouring over our borders by the thousands.
It is a fair and probable assumption Anthony Bologna and his two sons, Michael and Andrew, Kate Steinle and Officer Ronil Singh would be thriving today if we had two things.
1) A finished border wall.
2) No Sanctuary City/State policies.
Until that time, the message to illegals is “Come on in; America is yours for the taking.”
At the same time, the message to law-abiding and legal American citizens is “Run and hide!”
What kind of country watches their fellow Americans get cut down by medieval gangs (MS-13, whose gang motto is — “Kill, rape and control”)?
In the 1960’s, when our young men were sent to Vietnam to die at the direction of fossilized politicians, the American public would not accept this edict. They marched, protested and brought a corrupt government to its knees—and succeeded in stopping President Lyndon Johnson from even considering a re-run for his office.
Are we strong enough, committed enough, American enough to take to the streets again? Do we care enough about people like Anthony, Michael, Andrew, Kate and Ronil–who all rose to fame by being murdered on the streets of a Sanctuary state?
Are we mad enough to rise above our comfortable lives, our fears of the police state, of the high-tech fascists of the fake media and of the ridiculous Cancel Culture to fight the radical leftists who are promoting this madness at our borders?
As usual, we shake our head in disgust, talk to like-minded friends in animated, passionate conversation and then pour ourselves a glass of wine and make dinner. This isn’t good enough. We cannot just wait for the next election cycle. We have to organize a simultaneous protest in every state in the union. We have to show our numbers. We are 80+ million strong.
Are there organizers in each state? There have to be. We must bring an end to this coup. We must bring an end to Sanctuary policy. We have to bring an end to medieval gangs that are barbarically killing us. We must publicly make the lives of Anthony, Michael, Andrew, Kate and Ronil mean something. We have to honor them, remember them and wrap our big-hearted American arms around their families.
This is our America. Let’s roll. Let’s take her back!
