The Civil War and Abraham Lincoln.
Occurring near the end of the American Civil War, the assassination was part of a larger conspiracy intended by Booth to revive the Confederate cause by eliminating the three most important officials of the United States government. Conspirators Lewis Powell and David Herold were assigned to kill Secretary of State William H. Seward, and George Atzerodt was tasked with killing Vice President Andrew Johnson. Beyond Lincoln's death, the plot failed: Seward was only wounded and Johnson's would-be attacker lost his nerve. After a dramatic initial escape, Booth was killed at the climax of a 12-day manhunt. Powell, Herold, Atzerodt, and Mary Surratt were later hanged for their roles in the conspiracy.
America Teeters On The Edge Of The Cliff?
Antifa (/ /,) is a predominantly left-wing, anti-fascist political activist movement in the United States comprising a diverse array of autonomous activist groups that aim to achieve their objectives through the use of direct action rather than through policy reform. Activists engage in protest tactics such as digital activism and militancy, involving property damage, physical violence, and harassment against people whom they identify as fascist, racist, or on the far-right.
Individuals involved in the movement tend to hold anti-authoritarian and anti-capitalist views and subscribe to a range of left-wing ideologies such as anarchism, communism, Marxism, social democracy, and socialism. Both the name Antifa and the logo with two flags representing anarchism and communism are derived from the German Antifa movement.
Peaceful protests were organized across the land to call attention to the injustice and wrongful murder of an innocent man...George Floyd. Again perfectly ok and with just cause. But that movement very quickly got hijacked by the Radical Leftist Socialist. Now what is going on is not about George Floyd or justice.
