“To those who wreaked havoc in our Capitol today: You did not win. Violence never wins. Freedom wins. And this is still the people’s house.”
“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
“In the end political violence doesn’t work.”

“The statements by Pence and Carlson and several others I’ve heard today are magnificently stupid statements because political violence routinely works. It worked for the Jacobins in the French Revolution. It worked for the Yankees and Abolitionists in the America’s version of the French Revolution. It worked for the Bolsheviks against the Czar. Political violence routinely works. In point of fact political violence has [worked] and is working for BLM, Antifa and the rest of the Cultural Marxist left.
Of course the reason that violence is being denounced today is that people are trying to hold the social order together. However, clearly the social order is already in an increasingly bubbling civil war. In this context the Christian has to realize that God does not hate violence in the pursuit of His justice or in protection of life. To automatically think that God hates violence is to confess one’s self an Anabaptist. To say that violence doesn’t work is to confess one is an idiot.
I am not advocating violence at this point of the social order meltdown. I’m only communicating that Christians have never believed that God hates violence as pursued consistent with Christian just war theory and Christians with half a brain in their head have never said that “violence never wins.”
I am advocating that as Christians we begin to learn about Christian thinking on Just war theory as articulated by faithful Christian men through the ages because we may well be on the cusp of having to know these things in order to determine our actions going forward.
Personally, I am thankful for the successful violence used by the Christian crusaders, for the successful violence in throwing the Moors out of Spain, for the successful violence of Sobieski at Vienna and Don Juan at Lepanto, for the successful violence of Cromwell against Charles I, the successful violence of Cortez against the Aztecs and countless other successful outbursts of violence as pursued by Christian men against wicked. Further, I regret where Christian violence failed with the consequence that evil men and causes triumphed.
Don’t you believe that “violence never wins.” If anything is attested as true throughout history it is that violence often wins.
