Good Morning Pioneer Baptist!

I don’t like Antifa, but I love horses!, in answer to the question “What is Antifa?” states “Antifa is a left-wing political movement, made up of various autonomous groups, that opposes fascism and other right-wing ideologies, often through militant protest tactics.” I know them to be violent, intolerant, and of anti-American values, so, I don’t like them. And you can be assured that when they are burning, maiming, and blocking streets, they are doing so without a permit, even from the often liberal cities in which they are protesting. The cops, who Antifa is cussing-out and physically attacking, have often been severely limited by the liberal governments they are serving, even being forbidden to use non-lethal forms of crowd control, such as, but not limited to, pepper spray.

Here’s some of what God says about the majesty and power of the horse: “Hast thou given the horse strength? hast thou clothed his neck with thunder? Canst thou make him afraid as a grasshopper? the glory of his nostrils is terrible. He paweth in the valley, and rejoiceth in his strength: he goeth on to meet the armed men. He mocketh at fear, and is not affrighted; neither turneth he back from the sword. The quiver rattleth against him, the glittering spear and the shield. He swalloweth the ground with fierceness and rage: neither believeth he that it is the sound of the trumpet. He saith among the trumpets, Ha, ha; and he smelleth the battle afar off, the thunder of the captains, and the shouting.” (Job 39:19-25)

Why not triangulate Antifa, liberals, and the horse of God’s Word? That appears to be what the cops did in Austin, Texas, a couple of days ago, and I loved the resulting “crowd control” of those unlawfully blocking an intersection. This is from the Austin government website: “Support Ground Officers: The Mounted Patrol unit supports Walking Beat officers by clearing crowds from sidewalks and the street where problems arise. The effectiveness of one officer on a horse is equal to 10 officers on the ground. The mounted officers are able to clear crowds without causing panic, as people generally yield to horses because of their size. Mounted officers rarely have to make any physical contact with citizens, but provide very visible direction. In addition, officers on horseback can monitor a crowd from a “bird’s eye” view. Mounted officers can then respond and alert ground officers of any disturbances.”

God ultimately doesn’t “Horse Around” with those who challenge His authority, and neither do the Austin Cops!

I don’t like Antifa, but I love God’s horses!

Love and Prayers to you all,
