Born in Czechoslovakia, I experienced the realities of life very early. My family and I cheated death many times, from being bombed during World War II to dodging snipers in South East Asia.
To escape from communist treachery my family and I crossed borders through muddy fields, barbed wire, and armed guards.
At the age of nine I arrived in New York City. Two weeks in a new country I was immersed in the NYC school system, the best thing that could have happened to me.
I learned English quickly without forgetting Czech or German.
I immediately picked the political party that I would support, the Republican Party. That’s right; I knew where I belonged even at the age of nine.
I was a musician with my own band, worked with various promotional groups, started an out sourcing business for assembly of small manufacturing items, a computer company marketing hardware and software.
I served in South East Asia in Military Intelligence, held several positions in various fraternal organizations, worked on the U. S. Bicentennial Celebration, and now doing my best to strengthen the Republican Party.
The group called itself DisruptJ20, an anarchist group that began planning their violent activities weeks in advance. They posted on social media invitations to “join us in refusing to normalize Trump’s presidency, smashing his facade of legitimacy.”
They claim license to attack anyone they disagree with, under the guise that they are fascists or neo-Nazis.
On their website, they advocate “direct action” tactics, which they describe as taking “collective action to make social change without giving power over to an authority or middle person.”
“We don’t ask permission or put our faith in electoral politics, instead, we use our bodies to stop the smooth operation of the system we oppose,” the group’s website states, citing Black Lives Matter’s efforts to shut down highways as an example of the kind of disruption they have in mind. The group is open about its aim to become “an ungovernable force this winter.”
These protests have spread nationwide, including an anti-Trump protest in Seattle where an activist said we should “start killing people,” and a protest at Berkeley last week where bricks and rocks were thrown and police and the public was assaulted during a riot against conservative speaker Milo Yiannopoulos.
