AMAC“AMAC fully respects rule of law, stands firmly with law enforcement, and opposes all types of political violence in our civil society. Our Constitution, as interpreted over 230 years, is our touchstone – and should be the touchstone of every American. That document makes clear that political violence has no place in America. Accordingly, violent acts by political extremists against persons and property, public and private employees, private businesses, and institutions of local, state, or federal government should be and is condemned. 

 

AMAC also condemns unlawful activities that endanger law abiding, peaceful protestors who are exercising their First Amendment rights, and which place our brave law enforcement personnel at risk. AMAC recognizes that the rule of law depends not just on non-violence in civic dialogue but also on trust of those elected and confidence in the electoral process. We are committed to the idea of electoral integrity, public accountability, transparency, and supporting ideals that form the basis of our republic.

 

We are reminded that the text of the First Amendment, like other sections of the Constitution, is clear. It reads: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” We believe this right should be upheld, with vigor and resolve, against any form of public or private suppression, intimidation, cancellation, censorship, or disavowal, including by any form of political violence from left or right. 

 

AMAC believes there has only ever been one America, a nation that puts a unique premium on freedom, equality, civic order, limited government, and accountability of the government to the People. We encourage the exchange of different and controversial opinions, correction of large and small errors, empowerment of all citizens, fairness and honesty in elections, and faith by The People in the truth of self-determination. We are imperfect, but we must strive together for honesty, integrity, and trust – in each other and in our constitutional republic.”

The American People are feed up, and angry. And its only Growing, not going away.
They are tired of the lies, Fake Russia Hoax, Censorship, Biden’s crimes, double standards of the application of laws, corruption, and betrayal by Democrats, and some RINOS, to our enemies.
Blatant Voter Fraud, and other crimes were obviously committed. Are there any investigations? Inquiries? No! They turn a blind eye to all of this. 75 Million of the People’s votes were Stolen and Cancelled!
The Democratic, Swing State, Courts, and SCOTUS abandoned their duties and responsibilities and “kicked the can down the road” or just went along with their party’s political line.  
Democratic politicians have put people out of business, ruined their lives and livelihood. Given BILLIONS to our enemies and foreign countries, while our own people receive $600 (crumbs according to Nasty Pelosi) of Their money.

I lived in Ferguson MO during the rioting. O-bam-a said “keep going” and asked the governor to keep the national guard in an airport hanger instead of helping law and order. Trump said January 6 2021  “Please support our Capitol Police and Law Enforcement. They are truly on the side of our Country. Stay peaceful!” Which presidents’s words were more towards inciting violence, which were for peaceful interaction? The president asking for peaceful is now going to be impeached.

Very disturbing that American citizens believe it is their right to attack/fight with police force & have the right to force their way into Capitol & then vandalize several of the offices. And at last count, FIVE people have died during this siege on Capitol and one of them was Capitol policeman that probably died from blunt forces. During the last 6-months , know of similar breach of State Capitols of Michigan, Oregon, and Idaho and this must stop if our elected officials can fulfill their duties without fear from domestic attacks.

I truly don’t know what to think about the riot at the Capitol Building. I have read so many things that point to Antifa dressed as Trump supporters infiltrating the protesters. One even said that Antifa came in to DC with police escort. Another said the DC police refused an offer for aid from the National guard which was offered long before the riot took place. Don’t get me wrong I support the police completely. There are so many lies and so much fake news that no one knows what or who to believe anymore. I do tend to believe that ANTIFA was involved in some way. One of the rioters was interviewed on camera and he said he was paid along with others to infiltrate and cause trouble. He said that it was orchestrated by some group. I tend to lean toward believing this one because I saw and heard it myself but was the interview contrived? Who knows. Lets just say something smells about this whole thing and let it go at that.

Violence should not be supported by any one. Surely not where our Capitol is the target.
But how do Americans balance that position, as used against us by the Do Gooders/leftists,
with the fact we send our 18 to 24 year olds off to fight for liberty in foreign lands…is our liberty
worth less?

Does any thinking American not understand that the Do Gooders/leftists propagandize us with
the anti-violence argument while they steal our country with violence and expect us to surrender
our liberty without resistence at the level required to defeat them? Insurgents? Domestic terrorists?
Americans know who’s who.

I am disgusted that our people are so easily fooled by the Democrats and rings and we need to get educated and educate our children and grandchildren. Count me in.

Rebecca Weber’s account of the Capitol riot of Jan 6, 2020, is obviously accurate. From her article and other accounts in the media, patriotic Trump supporters gathered peacefully at the Capitol. At some point, rioters armed with flares and other weapons attacked and penetrated the Capitol. The Capitol Police collapsed and capitulated. 
There is zero evidence that any pro-Trump, pro-USA, pro-Constitution individual has involved in the rioting. Only a dozen or so arrests were made. The names, affiliations, and motives of the people have not been released. We have not heard a peep.
Yet, every major media outlet, including Fox News and local TV and radio stations in my hometown of Dayton, Ohio, is reporting that the patriots were 100% responsible for the violence. In the wake of Fox News’s disdain for its audience I have stopped watching Fox News. 

I hope AMAC and other patriotic outlets will counter this Big Lie. Although Parler is in its infancy, I am glad it exists. It is possible for American patriots to develop “bulletin boards” and other virtual forums to counter Facebook and Google. Such outlets, if they exist, could be promoted by AMAC and other pro-American groups.

Just what, if anything, was our Great Republic founded on if not political violence ???
The Founding Fathers didn’t whine and cry to the press and file lawsuits in the courts,,, they loaded muskets and sent lead downrange !!!

I agree with this whole article, I was there also and it was an extremely fun and peaceful rally until antifa took over. I have reviewed the shooting of Ashli Babbitt over and over and to this day do not understand why the 4 ar15 armed guards behind her allowed her to climb through the window to be shot (rubber bullets? No blood splatter on any wall, floor) and then would not allow a medic near her. They did nothing themselves to help her. I cry foul in this debacle. America wake up. Move assets to safe banks, get out of their sphere of internet, and and hunker down. Lets work together to change Congress in two years to loosen their grip on the reigns of power by placing more Matt Gaetz type people there. They must not prevail.

ANTIFA hijacked the conservative protesters peaceful rally! Put the blame on the Left/democrats where it belongs, they are the violent onesf and they incite violence and that is on video.
Leftists liberals looted and burned cities across the nation all last summer and the dems just said, oh well people will do what they will!
Where was the outrage about their Leftist violence? Where were the articles and speeches about that wrongdoing?
Where is the outrage about shooting an unarmed woman veteran? If that was a black person, all heck would break loose! Not one mention was made that she was unarmed; why not use tasers or rubber bullets? and what about the video showing a guard allowing the antifa crowd into the capitol building, its right on video! This was a set up. Dont fall for it conservatives! Stop apologizing and taking the blame for Leftist violence!

More videos keep coming out, but I cannot believe how many of the rioters used flag poles to beat on police and other people plus used them to break out windows. These people are not patriots , but people looking to damage and vandalize and not to respect the flag. Unbelievable to me, but from now on you must leave your flag at the door & not bring into building as it is deadly weapon of destruction.

I don’t think the constitution says one way or the other about violence but the founders had a lot to say about tyranny. Here’s something Samuel Adams wrote, “The liberties of our country, the freedoms of our civil Constitution are worth defending at all hazards; it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors. They purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood. It will bring a mark of everlasting infamy on the present generation – enlightened as it is – if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of designing men.” Rest in peace Ashlii.
