The Violent Left Says They Want a Civil War: Antifa Forming A ‘Red Army’

A year ago, I wrote about the left’s civil war heating up in America. Since then, Antifa and company continue their armed marches against freedom and liberty. Initially, Antifa groups got away scot-free, beating Trump supporters bloody while, of course, calling them fascists and Nazis. More recently though, Antifa’s masked thugs have been the ones suffering the thumpings in direct confrontations.

In response, radicals have ramped up their efforts to form what they’re calling a “Red Army.” Why? To “annihilate” their enemies, of course.

Really. From one of the Red Guards Austin manifestos, posted August 19th and still online:

Oppose the Counterfeit! Antifascism Must Take On a Paramilitary Character!

…The fact that no fascists were harmed in the making of this “counter-protest” only proves that the main organizers have no stomach for antifascism—for us antifascism is concrete—it does not mean simply voicing a disagreement it means stopping fascists in their tracks and hurting their efforts to the point where they stop organizing.

…On the basis of our principled united front work, fascists and their collaborators can be drowned out, run out, routed, beaten bloody, and even annihilated. These are our principles and we aim to hold them to the very finish.

The twisted minds of these radical leftists view their unlawful, unprovoked violence against their political enemies as self-defense. In reality, their “self-defense” looks a whole lot like textbook fascism. In other words, using force and violence to suppress opposing points of view.

One thing seems perfectly clear. If the authorities do not stop and prosecute this sort of political violence, peace-loving American gun owners will. The will have no choice but to protect themselves, as is their right.

Looking back to the 2016 elections, the radicals in Antifa and their Black Bloc BFFs freely “drowned out, run out, routed, beaten bloody, and even annihilated” their fellow Americans. Local cops, some ordered to stand down, allowed the political violence to go effectively unchecked.

The Left’s Civil War: Antifa Forming A "Red Army" To Annihilate Us

Or worse yet, cops in some places acted in concert with the violent left. In San Jose, Ninth Circuit appellate court justices have allowed a lawsuit against the police to proceed. Cops there not only failed to protect Trump supporters at an organized rally, but actually routed them into a mass of violent “counter-protesters.”

The Left’s Civil War: Antifa Forming A "Red Army" To Annihilate Us

How did these Antifa types get away with this for so long? Sympathetic local government leaders, coupled with Americans’ reluctance to settle political disagreements via violence allowed this to happen.

It goes without saying that Antifa has no reservations about using violence to achieve their political goals. In fact, these masked thugs who fancy themselves anti-fascists live by Alinski’s Rules for Radicals.

  1. “Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.”
  2. “Never go outside the expertise of your people.”
  3. “Whenever possible go outside the expertise of the enemy.
  4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”
  5. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”
  6. “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.”
  7. “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.”
  8. “Keep the pressure on.”
  9. “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.”
  10. “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.”
  11. “If you push a negative hard and deep enough it will break through into its counterside”
  12. “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.”
  13. “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”

Particularly when it comes to violence, the left loves Rule #4 by counting on their fellow Americans not to risk possibly breaking the law to defend themselves. The left knows that everyday Americans will avoid resorting to violence, sometimes even when attacked. Since childhood, our society has taught people to eschew, and not embrace violence. And decent, well-adjusted, civilized people do indeed avoid violence.

Couple the reluctance to fight back with Rule #9, “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself,” this allows bullies to make threats to bully and intimidate others into silence. In other words, using the threat of violence is enough to suppress opposing viewpoints. That’s fascism.

Antifa never really believed that conservative Americans might actually answer violent attacks…with violence. It’s one thing for bullies to intimidate through force of numbers. It’s another when bullies see and taste their own blood.

This past summer, the right has organized and successfully pushed back against masked troublemakers. In most cases, it hasn’t gone well for the true fascists. Masked toughs don’t respond well when their intended victims don’t run, but fight back instead. In fact, masked tough guys tend to break and run pretty quickly when faced with violent resistance.

The Left’s Civil War: They Are Forming A "Red Army" To Annihilate Us

Take Mr. Masked Antifa, who tried to wield an expandable baton in Oregon earlier this summer. One punch and he was down for the count. Here’s the video.


In the streets where I live, attacking someone with a baton – with or without a mask – carries the risk of getting shot and taking the room temperature challenge.

Speaking of Portland: the battle of Portland his summer resulted in a near complete rout for the Black Bloc.

At another Portland event, an Antifa member’s crash course in kung fu got him knocked out cold. He learned that going hands-on carries risks. Especially when the other person is not intimidated by a group of Black Bloc bullies.


So faced with these humiliating defeats, the Antifa crowd now apparently is seeking an arms race.

From that same Red Guards Austin manifesto:

we encourage the formation of paramilitary organizations on two levels. The first being those who are mainly unarmed but are prepared and trained to carry out fist fighting or using blunt weapons like axe handles or flagpoles as well as shields and basic armoring. The second level is the more advanced embryo of a Red Army, which is trained militarily and operates as soldiers all the time, engaging in production and mass work among the proletariat and the oppressed nation’s people. [emphasis original]

The Left’s Civil War: Antifa Forming A "Red Army" To Annihilate Us

I know from experience participating in and teaching Appleseed shoots that gun ownership doesn’t make a skilled marksman any more than piano ownership makes a skilled musician. At the same time, we know that bad music won’t kill innocent people.

Hopefully this is nothing more than fanciful talk from the radical left and will go nowhere. However, they have already demonstrated a willingness to tool-up and to use violence to suppress opposing viewpoints. If and when these “Red Guards” put their two acts together, they may win the first round of bloodshed.

Shortly thereafter, sanity will prevail and they will learn first-hand what Americans are willing to do to defend their freedom.

          The Oligarchy is behind these people. The Oligarchy WANTS violence in the streets, to take the public’s attention away from the real issues (public corruption, insane debt, unfunded liabilities, banksters, deep state, military industrial complex, cultural degeneracy, government overreach, environmental degradation, declining oil availability, and many other issues).

          The Oligarchy WANTS violence in the streets, to scare the public into accepting more and more gun control, and more and more strong handed police state action.

          Never let a crisis go to waste! Cause the crisis yourself if you have to!

          I don’t know exactly who the Oligarchy is comprised of, but they do f*ck over everyone pretty much all the time.

          the want us to fight each other instead of opposing them.

          The educational industrial complex is largely controlled by the Oligarchy. The media -news-entertainment-TV-Hollywood industrial complex is controlled by the Oligarchy. Amazon, Youtube, Netflix, Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc. are part of it. Monsanto and big Ag. are part of it. The Democratic party leadership, and the RINO leadership are part of it. The Banksters and the Federal Reserve are part of it. Gun control is part of it. Feminists are part of it. BLM and Antifa are useful idiots who work for the Oligarchy. As a Protestant, I think the Pope is part of the Oligarchy (but many Protestant leaders are too). The Oligarchy always seeks centralization and consolidation of power.

          Above all things, the Oligarchy hates the true King, Jesus Christ. The Oligarchy hates the Bible. The Oligarchy hates strong healthy happy families. The Oligarchy hates people being debt free, and financially strong. The Oligarchy hate strong masculine men, and beautiful feminine women. The Oligarchy hates fathers and husbands. The Oligarchy hates wives and mothers. The Oligarchy hates children. The Oligarchy hates Conservative Christians, who are debt free, financially stable, happily married, have babies, and are well armed. The Oligarchy hates the strong free people who built this nation, and the hate the very essence of this Republic.

          By the way, the Oligarchy has been pretty much running the show for a long time. The war between the Oligarchy and the people will continue he until the True King returns.

        Because your average CCW holder who runs into these people is gonna be carrying a 25lb MG that’s an NFA item… or a subgun, which is also an NFA item…

        1. avatar Rocketman says:

          It’s not what you have, it’s how you put it to use. You get someone with a 6 shot revolver who is an expert in knowing how to use it and that person will be at least a match for 4 or 5 ANTIFA thugs carrying semi-auto carbines at say 50 yards away.

        2. avatar Corey Gray says:

          Ummm, dude…unless you’re talking trained combat soldiers, then the weapons they’re carrying aren’t good for the close quarters engagements they’re suggesting be used, for the most part.

          They want to work in tight, crowded environments…shotguns and other long guns are damn near useless in such circumstances (hence why enlistees in current deployments are being issued pistols, when it used to be pistols went only to officers, MP’s, and (sometimes) tankers/vehicle crews. In current environments, they often have to revert to the pistol to be functional in conditions.)

          IOW, your “average CCW holder” *will* have the advantage over someone carrying any long gun, including a shotty, in the circumstances under which they intend to engage.

          The weapons they’re carrying? For combat engagements exceeding 50 yards, or for aggressively clearing rooms and hallways, when you know anyone in THAT direction is an enemy…not the crowd of mixed enemies and friends Antifa would have to fire into.

        4. avatar Guardiano says:

          @Corey Gray: What are you talking about? Nobody is being issued handguns as primary weapons on deployment. Where are you getting this from?

        5. avatar Corey Gray says:

          @Guardiano
          I never said primary weapon. I said that, for the first time in a LONG time, standard enlisted men are being issued pistols. For exactly the circumstances I listed…you can’t use an AR or a shotty in crowded areas at short range, unless you know for a FACT everyone in front of you is an enemy.

          Mid seventies to the early oughts, officers, MPs, and occasionally tankers or crews for heavy mech infantry were issued pistols in the Army…and the tankers and Brad crews were usually using “need to be retired” grease guns, or the M-16 variant guns designed to be mounted from INSIDE, so the infantry passengers can join in the “fun” during vehicle actions, not pistols.

          Pistol has ALWAYS been a secondary weapon in the field, even when on an officer’s hip. But they carry it for a reason…I listed the reason, and specifically pointed out ANTIFA idiots will kill more of their own than of their opponents, using the weapons they’re amassing.

      3. avatar New Continental Army says:

        FG 42 !!!! A weapon I suggest the US consider resurrecting at the squad or even team level since “overmatch” is such a desire now. I figure they want to get rid of the SAW, and get a squad/team weapon with more reach/power. Why spend a decade and billions on something that will probably get canceled, when we could simply re introduce the FG42 and it’ll fill the exact need that army wants it for.

        1. avatar pwrserge says:

          The FG-42 has serious design and durability issues. The firing mechanism alone is a failure to fire waiting to happen. Great gun for WWII, hopelessly outclassed in 2018.

And there are plenty of small groups that are just as extreme on the far right.
      So there’s folks who call themselves antifa what about sovereign citizens? Or Atomic Waffen? And lots of other small groups of ultra right wing crazies are out there. To bad we can’t round up all the nuts on both sides and dump them somewhere and let them off each other.

        Sorry but your post is nonsense. Antifa, Resist, Occupy and BLM are massively funded at much larger numbers and have way more violent adherents and commit way more violence by any metric.

        Adherents and supporters of BLM and Atifa are responsible for 60 people being shot in the past two years (Dallas, GOP baseball team and more) as well as massive number of people inured by steel pipes used to hold up protest signs, concrete filled soda cans, etc, and tens of millions in property damage and policing costs to control their violence. They are not just unilaterally beating and assaulting Nazis, but fully justify their violent attacks on the half the country that voted for Trump

        1. avatar Blkojo says:

          Correct.

        2. avatar KenW says:

          Sorry but if you look at this site there are quite a few on here that seem to want to belong to the ultra right wing. . Think I’m wrong? Why the love then for a guy holding a rifle? I wonder how many here know that guy longs to bring back military dictatorship rule to Brazil, disappearances, children taken and adopted by others, no real rule of law. But he is OK because he’s for guns. Sorry but I do not hold just guns as making a politician someone I would support.
          And there are more than a few here longing to be able to start shooting leftist. If what they long for were to happen they should remember the words to a Who song. Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss.
          Most revolutions except our first ended up executing many of those who participated on the winning side.

          Also if you look into who is in the lead as far as killing people the ultra right wing is in the lead still. Since 2011 72 people killed thanks to them. But if you go back, Timothy Mcveigh, Eric Ruldolf, Posse Comitatus members, and others have far exceeded the left wing count. But you probably do not know that or care as it did not come from infowars or 4chan and Q has not told you what to believe.

        3. avatar Excedrine says:

          @KenW — Sorry, but if you actually took your own advice — for once — and looked at this site, there are very, very few people that could even be conceivably be classified as “ultra-right wing.” Whatever that’s supposed to mean. We happen to know for a fact that you’re wrong. Nobody here has any love for any rifle-wielding mook that cavorts with communists. There’s no need to wonder how many here, except you of course, long to bring back the Junta in Brazil. Nobody does. Again, except for you, because then you’d actually be telling the truth for a change.

          And there are almost exactly none that actually want to shoot anyone except as a last resort. Again, you — and only you — want it to happen so you’d actually be telling the truth for a change. Also, if you again actually took your own advice, for once, and looked into who’s in the lead for killing people the ultra-leftwing is still in the lead. And will be for the foreseeable future. If you actually do go back, The Weather Underground, the PPK, The Simboanese Liberation Army, The Black panther Party, and others have far exceeded the alleged “right-wing” count. But, you damn well know that by now and simply don’t care as it comes from the Department of Energy and CNN, Tumblr, and Reddit have already told you what to believe.

        Ignorance is bliss:

        There are multiple blocs of “Antifa” that assemble… Some of those are simply older “comrades” that protest without violence because they can’t fight, some are street fighters that rapidly assemble to punch “Nazis” that come out in public, others are armed with long guns…

        Antifa isn’t an organization, it’s an idea/ideology. There is no central power controlling the groups. They mobilize/conspire online to meet in person to deal with the problematic “fascists.” These types of people are numerous and reside in many countries. It’s like ISIS starting out in Iraq and Afghanistan, then expanding as far as the Philippines.

        These Antifa types are usually young and/or dumb. The only way you can get rid of them is to teach the youth why it’s a stupid ideology, why it’s morally wrong and why it’s regressive. If you can’t do that, you will be dealing with their growth and sustained presence; eventually they will win because a strong minority is able to push the passive majority to the path of least resistance.

        Antifa have a goal and they can organize. Gun owners can’t even put together a well regulated militia or get outside to protest.

      Nazis had top notch gear, firearms, vehicles, training, discipline, command structure, tactics, etc. The Red Army was made of brave people, and of people who did not have a choice, and realized they had a better chance to survive by protecting the motherland vs deserting and getting shot by a fellow Soviet. Hell forget about the Reich and the Reds, the average illiterate peasant in early 20th century Europe would shoot the average antifa dead any given day of the week.
      Antifa is a bunch of spoiled clueless azzholes, some are dangerous as they are willing to sucker punch you and it doesn’t take a war hero t throw a projectile or kick someone on the ground. However, in a civil war, they will get a memorable spanking. I have seen many videos and pics, they are pausing (sometimes with BB guns) and sometimes they do not even know how to hold a firearm in a resting position.
      Some in the antifa bunch believe they have a chance, they think they are like the talibans or NVA. Breaking news, antifa don’t fight for their life or for their land, they do not have the motivation or religious brainwashing (muslim fighters) that will lead one to fight dirty until death. Their lives are somehow comfortable, they have more to lose than to win, and if enough of them are stupid enough to start it they will quickly realize it nationwide. They bark a lot, and as many videos have shown it as soon as they make one mistake they get a spanking (I love the one punch video). If they think they have a better chance with guns, we have more, better people, more veterans, people willing to kick ass not to destabilize a nation but to save it and defend our Constitution, for the kids, for the future.
      I am not impressed by them, and not worried. Be vigilant, but remain confidant, we will be fine trust me.

I view them as similar to the Dentist’s and Lawyers who dress up like bikers and pay way to much for a motorcycle.

      Despite its claims to be anti-fascist, Antifa is in fact fascist in both ideology and practice. There’s a lot of agitprop going on which attempts to instruct people to think that political conservatives, who tend to believe strongly in market-capitalism, are somehow the inheritors of the fascist socialist economic and political model that flourished in Italy prior to WWII.

      Despite being popularly known as “right wing” market-capitalist political conservatives are the antithesis the kind of authoritarianism and socialism that characterizes Italy.’s fascist era. It’s also worth noting that America’s progressive political movement was originally heavily influenced by Italian fascism. Modern progressivism continues to be essentially fascist in it’s ideology and practice. Antifa, far from being against fascism, is in fact a perfect example of Italy’s black-shirt fascism. So why does this blatant shuck-and-jive work? Agitpropaganda depend on the relative ignornace of its target populations. Most Americans, including the Antifa protestors, have no idea what fascism actually is.

    Whatever. In my experience, Trump supporters gleefully call for a civil war all the time because they think only ‘conservatives’ own guns and that they’ll get to shoot the ‘leftists’.

          @LL — And here’s why nobody takes Snopes seriously, and consequently why no one takes you seriously. Here are some real citations, not just more deliberate leftist disinformation:

          Over the last 30, 50, and 100 years, it’s actually been you blues that have as a matter of fact killed far and away many, many more people to boot.

        Saying almost all mass killings is X political group is moronic. The common denominator is crazy, period.

        1. avatar Phil Wilson says:

          Let’s accept your premise that the common denominator is crazy. I’m actually sympathetic to that view point.

          If crazy was equally distributed among ideologies, you’d expect roughly equal representation of ideologies in politically motivated violence. We do not observe even close to equal representation in politically motivated violence.

          So, all that remains is to determine causation if possible. So, ether leftism makes people crazy, or crazy is disproportionately attracted to leftism. I have an open mind as to which. We’d have to consider base rates, too of course.

    3. avatar New Continental Army says:

      There’s a big difference in the talk actually. I’ve been around these types on both sides, face to face. “Right wing” militia types are defensive in nature, and nearly all are ok with violence only as a last resort, if their hand is forced. They generally want to be left alone. The left however, is HIGHLY aggressive towards conservatives. They see conservatives as backwards subhumans who need to be changed by force. The left is not content with being left alone, they not only want their own views in their own circles, but they have a desire to force their views on all others, because anyone not in agreement with them is a threat. Now, what these left wing terrorist groups lack however, is proper training, supplies, and numbers compared to the “right wing” militias. The left wing terrorists will likely find success fighting like Al Queda. Bombing innocents, mass shooting innocents, shooting unsuspecting people in the back, abductions, and arson. But when the fighting gets toe to toe in an actual fire fight, the “right” has a clear massive edge.

      1. avatar Southern Cross says:

        They will take inspiration from the Irish Republican Army, Brigado Rossi, and the Baader-Meinhoff Red Army Faction.

        Kidnappings for ransom and political leverage, assassinations, massacres of innocents to promote more gun control, bombings of train stations and shopping centers.

        1. avatar Mark N. says:

          Which got them….killed or imprisoned.

        2. avatar Southern Cross says:

          They were all arrested, killed, or made irrelevant by events.

      2. avatar Rocketman says:

        That’s pretty much my view as well New Continental Army. There are a lot of ex-military types in right wing militias but only a handful in left wing ones. If the shooting does start expect ANTIFA to quickly turn to bombings and assassinations because they will be losing far too many of their “soldiers” going one on one.

      3. avatar IamWaiting! says:

        Very interesting post. For those who ignore or forgot it, commies and anarchists have committed terrorist acts once upon a time in Europe.

      4. avatar KenW says:

        Must have different militia and sovereigns where you live. The ones I know all pine for the day when it happens and the United States crumbles in some big event. Then they with their weapons will be the new rulers.

        1. avatar Excedrine says:

          @KenW — The ones you allegedly “know” hardly account for any statistically significant percentage of supposed militia groups in America, and it’s still nothing but anecdotal evidence anyway.

          Anecdote is not data. The plural of anecdote is not data. You have no argument.

      5. avatar Guardiano says:

          Let me guess, you haven’t been in L.A. or another big city during one of their ‘peaceful protests’?

          Believe me, there is a ‘them’.

        2. avatar Excedrine says:

          You might want to take your own advice, for once, and actually read and watch what happens when these far-leftards gather in large numbers. There is, unarguably, a “them” to speak of and they most certainly do, beyond all doubt, “think about that.”

          Whether you personally like to think so is irrelevant, inapplicable, inadmissible, and inconsequential.

    5. avatar neiowa says:

      “right-wing militias” has only EVER existed in the empty head echo chamber of the prog MSM. Clear back until the Clinton apologist days. The progs still LOVE the fascist twits of Soviet Union and National Socialism. The “Trump/russians” is just a smoke screen to give cover for Obumer and Hellery.

      1. avatar LL says:

        Right wing militia and violence is just a fantasy?

        tell that the the people who died in Oklahoma City

        1. avatar Excedrine says:

          @LL — Except that wasn’t committed by any so-called “right-wing” militia. In point of fact, the OKC bomber was rightly turned away by every militia he tried appealing to. He acted alone. Had you actually ever done even a moment’s research into partisan violence, you’d know that and a whole lot more into why you’re categorically wrong. But, you don’t because you haven’t — and don’t try to lie by saying you have, either, because we both know damn well for a fact that you actually haven’t, period.

    6. avatar arc says:

      Most left wingers and antifa don’t have a clue on how to properly use their weapons. They don’t have any training in combat life saving, defensive positions, fire and maneuver, immediate/remedial action, and most of them are spindly little twerps. The best they can do is make threats and run about in a mob and get their asses kicked.

      Most of the retired military are on the right, as are the gun owners and establish small, efficient, freedom cells. They cross train and share their expertise with each other. Most of them are good on their own, in a team, they can easily issuing the whippings the parents of anti-fa never handed down.

  3. avatar Waffensammler98 says:

    Antifa will not set foot outside the bastions of leftism they’re protected in/trying to make their own. We will see some city mayors order cops to stand down when these fvcks take to the street around election time. Would love to see a Battalion of them take on a squad of Army/Marine grunts in the woods. Many lulz would be had.

    1. avatar No one of consequence says:

      That would be an … interesting … choice for a sitting mayor to make in many parts of the country.

      1. avatar Waffensammler98 says:

        Its not far off. Look what happened with BLM in Baltimore, “Room to destroy” and the protests at UC Berkeley

  4. avatar Swarf says:

    I get that a lot of people on the right are desperate for an enemy, but is siding with white nationalists and making a mountain out of the pipsqueek antifa’s molehill really the best way to get sane people on your side?

    Additionally, since when is armed protest not okay? It’s only okay for the Proud Boys and Patriot Prayer guys? Is that it?

    1. avatar neiowa says:

      What “white nationalists” is that trollboy?

      Soros/Blimpbergs minion are really out today. New month = new trolling budget?

    2. avatar DaveDetroit says:

      ANTIFA is a terrorist organization and should be hunted down and terminated. Any governor or mayor who shields them or otherwise protects them from the prosecution should be charged as a collaborator and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

      Last I saw Nazis aren’t much of a thing- they are a bad joke from an old Blue’s Brothers movie. ANTIFA? They are violent thugs out to harm anyone they can sneak up on. Had they the conviction of their beliefs they wouldn’t need masks.

      Honestly, how hard would it be for the FBI to penetrate ANTIFA, gather the huge amount to of easily discoverable emails and texts, identify and prosecute them for actively planning and carrying out terrorist activities? Just more evidence that the higher levels of the FBI have been compromised and that the organization has been reduced to a group of political hacks.

    3. avatar IamWaiting! says:

      When you make your intention of committing crimes, from assaulting innocent people up to basically being a domestic terrorist, sorry but you do not deserve to enjoy the 2A.

    2. avatar IamWaiting! says:

      I disagree. They do not want to be martyrs, they aren’t brainwashed religiously, and they know whatever they fight for is not worth losing a life they are not desperate or oppressed enough for that. What they want is to impress, to scare, to force people and governments to submit to their tantrums, to normalize their actions. They fight a cold war for the most part with the MSM, some politicians, other organizations (BLM, La Razza…). That’s how leftists win “wars”, these people aren’t the NVA or the Red Army, they don’t have 1% of their guts or mindset.

        @LL — Even though that’s demonstrably untrue, and all the Mueller probe has uncovered is past DemoKKKratiKKK malfeasance in collusion with the Russians. None of the convictions or indictments so far have anything to do with foreign interference in the 2016 elections, just shady bank transactions (which doesn’t surprise me either way being that politicians are all whores for sale anyway).

        So, no, it’s actually the blues. Again. Still. More.

  8. avatar Richard Turyn says:

    Gentlemen and ladies, the above article is 99+% BS and disinformation calculated to scare (or strongly concern) you and prepare you to act violently out of such fears. The majority of the people I have known in my 67 years have been moderately to extremely politically left-wing. Even the most extreme in their opinions and ambitions aren’t violent people. They don’t own or want to own any kinds of weapons unless you count some of the womens’ pepper spray.

    Fear is the easiest way that bad people try to manipulate others. Don’t let their disinformation make you afraid of left-wing people. The left wing here, mostly soft, privileged people with what they feel are benign intentions, are not and will never be a threat to you, your loved ones, or law and order in the USA.

    Appreciate your understanding.

      First time here old timer?!? I am nearly 65. Most of my acquaintances are NOT left/lib/or progtard. I assume your buddies VOTE Democrat.

Same deal except there is a quantum increase of good conservative armed Americans willing and able to defend their right’s. Understand😄

      1. avatar Danny L Griffin says:

        Richard Turyn is a left-wing radical.

        Aside from that, FWW I come to Highland/Hammond about 4-6 times a year. We should get together one of these days, even if it’s at Hammond Baptist. (I used to attend Central Baptist in East Chicago when Iived there.)

        1. avatar former water walker says:

          How do you know which Richard Turyn it is?!? Or IF? I’m not at Hammond Baptist every week as we are often working. I don’t see a fakebook page so I’m guesssing that’s your real name…how would everything work?

        2. How do you know which Richard Turyn it is?!?

          Are there multiple Richard Turyns? Yes, that is my real name…Danny Lee Griffin. I never even thought about inking my facebook page to TTAG messages.

          I’m not worried about putting my real name out there. I used to be very active on another forum. I had cops, actual real cops, threaten me. I then posted my name, address, and phone number and invited them to come see me. Repeatedly I did this. I’m still here, they’re still hiding. And I’m talking State Police on down.

          Anyway, we can meet for coffee if you want one day. A meal is better, but coffee is adequate. I’ll see if I can link my facebook to the website link. Let’s see if this works.

      Nah Richard, they just flood the county will illegals, register them to vote with motor voter or city issued ID cards, and then tell them they will get free stuff if they vote for the democrats. Totally benign..

      So sick of this…for years the left’s intentions are completely clear, and here comes the useful idiot who starts telling people, “Don’t believe your lying eyes and ears, they deceive you, believe me. There is nothing to see here.”

      Open borders and free health care (among other things) for anyone that can make it here. Why would that be a threat? The left hates this country and that would seal the deal on the internal destruction of the U.S..

    4. avatar New Continental Army says:

      That’s not true at all. I’ve spent plenty of time around leftists. We all don’t live in some conservative backwater where the only time we see a liberal is on the news. I’ve got a ton in my family. I’ve interacted with actual left wing militias long before “antifa” was some soy bois wet dream. The left actually does have some very dangerous people in it. People who have absolutely no problem using violence as a means of progress. I know of one anti Christian group that physically assaults anyone wearing crosses. The difference is the media plays down these groups and plays up the right wing ones. And the right wing ones are simply far larger and far better organized.

      1. actual left wing militias

        1. avatar New Continental Army says:

          Fair point. Substitute militia with Angsty kids with guns.

        Where in the 1980’s did you live? Because you’re just spouting out your ass unless you happened to live in Central America instead of the United States of America.

          Actually most of the regular ‘demonstration bombings’ were in the 1970s, not the sixties. Look up the Weathermen. Led by some guy named Bill Ayers, you might have heard of him, but certainly not on CNN.

          I lived in Chicago where my lawschool advisor, an ANC member followed in their wake, trying to throw cold water on their racist attempts to get Black people to be their cannon fodder.

          There isn’t a dime’s worth of practical difference between the Aryan Brotherhood and [anti]fa. They’re both slimy racists and anti-Semites.

      2. avatar Richard Turyn says:

        You and others who push the fear of “left-wing violence” are inventing threats, and people, and a “movement” that is imaginary and simply don’t exist. Don’t be manipulated by disinformation.

        1. avatar Guardiano says:

          Antifa doesn’t exist? Did you read this article? Have you read the countless other articles or watched YouTube videos showing them in action? I’ve seen them in person. They are very real, and they very much want their political opposition dead.

        2. avatar Excedrine says:

          You and others who apparently blatantly deny the existence of AntiFa, BAMN, and others while inventing “threats,” “people,” and “movements” on the right are pushing an imaginary fear that doesn’t exist. Stop spreading misinformation yourself and maybe people won’t be manipulated.

    6. avatar Vic Nighthorse says:

      Richard, it is not about the garden variety progressive who only commit violence by proxy but a very small minority that makes up Antifa. Yes, all statists left and right commit violence by proxy. I have no idea of the relative sizes of left and right paramilitary organizations in the US though.

    7. avatar Southern Cross says:

      Peaceful good intentions, such as the Fabian Society whose stated aim is “the spread of socialism through covert means“?

      Your agents of influence in government, media, corporations, public service, and education are starting to get impatient for the promised utopia and are starting to act impulsively.

      Perhaps the left needs a purge before the revolution instead of afterwards.

    It’s funny how in 2018, being a Libertarian (one who advocates against any environment where one may impose their will upon another) is tantamount to being a fascist.

    I would like to think that some level of intelligent discourse would help illuminate the fact that libertarianism or as a whole, liberty itself, is the antithesis of both fascism and tyranny. And communism. And jingoism. And autocracy. And… you get the picture.

    But the realist in me seriously doubts there could be any intelligent discourse with antifa types, even if we hate fascists as much as we hate communists. Intelligence being the prerequisite.

    They want to start shooting, they will get creamed. After one or two exchanges – if they are really stupid enough to take things that far – I predict they will lose their taste for it.

    This is not the 1960s/early 1970s. Then we had real civil strife. Today we have pockets of punks who don’t represent much besides old lefties getting vicarious thrills and money from Soros types.

      The Antifa definition of “fascist” is anyone who doesen’t hew to THEIR party line as defined at any given INSTANT.

      To these sniveling cowards, Rosa Luxemberg and Leon Trotsky would be “fascists”.

      They’re not “antifa”, they’re just “fa”, and like their brownshirted ancestors, they’re going to come to a bad [for them] end.

    Seriously now, the real threat of civil war is coming from the neo-fascists, the Tiki-torch neo-Nazis like those at Charlottesville. Antifa isn’t much of a threat at all to those who’ve actually seen them, they’re pipsqueaks. The extreme right wants a civil war because they feel threatened by blacks, Jews, Asians, Mexicans, Native Americans, Muslims, Hindus, atheists, women, liberals, et cetera… be honest now!

      There are about two dozen Nazis living in their mothers’ double-wides, making IMPOTENT threats with multiple IDs and downloading kiddie porn over dialup.

    ANTIFA mostly haunts Leftist controlled Cities. Let them cobble together their new “Red Army”. Most likely any attempt they make to use it will result in a serious confrontation with local PD’s because they will be in violation of “no open carry laws’, “assault weapons violations” and some number of other anti-gun laws put in place by the other Commies running the Locality.

    They NEED to try to force confrontations with “the other side” because those who cause Government entities grief first automatically become the outlaws the authorities have to deal with and forfeits any claim to legitimacy of their cause.

    If you have read any of ANTIFA’s other propaganda, you will know that they HATE EVERYBODY and are anarchists at heart who want no organized Society/Polity. Their only future is their own doom.

    Prepare to defend yourselves and your own, but otherwise refuse to take ANTIFA’s not very clever bait and make them piss-off the Local Authorities and make the Local Authorities use their resources to deal with ANTIFA.

    Sooner than later these amateur “revolutionaries” will screw-up and destroy themselves.

    For anyone who would like to pretend that the left is either not a threat, or that the far right is more of a threat, I would like to bring a few points up.

    Post 2016 election, I lost a good number of “friends” who were in hysterics that Trump had won, and were openly discussing violence as a “resistance” measure.
    One such person who didn’t immediately unfriend me on facebook, despite me calling him out, still posts increasingly radical far left propaganda, such as stuff that calls for a communist revolution, or at least alludes to one.

    These aren’t random schmucks paid to agitate by Soros and co.
    These are people who live in the same town as me, and who I’ve been / had been friends with since high school.

    Second point. Communism has a much higher death toll than any far right ideology, and while we, as Americans, should be wary of either, communist/socialist ideologies always seem to take root supringly easy, with their promises of social justice, and wealth for all.

    Articles like this aren’t fear mongering. They’re facing the reality of the changing politcal landscape of the US.

    1. avatar 22lr Creedmoor says:

      Anarchists and commies are two different animals, they could ally and tolerate each others to fight us, but ultimately one cannot exist with the other, and the idea some leftists believe muslims are their bff is even more laughable but that’s another topic. When I analyze the antifa phenomenon in the USA, I can immediately tell you it is a circus that will never become a huge deal outside of their cities. These people are confused, you see USSR or Che Guevara propaganda, then you see Anarchy stuff, and when they aren’t role playing I bet some wear Nike, Abercrombie…in Europe when the more legit commies and anarchists protest and riot, you do not see them mixing up. It often occurs during protests organized by unions. You have the different unions leading the way, then you have a smaller group of commies (mostly baby boomers, and a minority of millennial and college students), and finally at the end or around the protest the anarchists, some more determined than others. Even in Italy, Germany, or France where socialism and communism is far more normal than in the US, where people do not carry firearms for SD, the show never goes far. Commies and anarchists have killed (bombing, shooting) in Europe in the past, but it was another kind of crazies for many reasons.

  26. avatar Free Texas says:

    There is a lot of talk about commies and fascists and Nazis these days, but I wonder how many of those using these historical and political terms have ever studied the Nazis or the Communists, how many have ever actually gone beyond the worse than useless education they received in public schools about these complex social movements. And how many that have done so have even considered looking through, past or beyond the wartime and post wartime propaganda and their own native obscurantism to try to learn who were the “good guys” and who were the “bad guys” of WWII behind all these labels. Having only scratched the surface of non-establishment, non-Allied victors’ historiography myself I have come to appreciate the fact that things are not so simple. One could start to remove the blinders by examining the works of David Irving so as to strike a more balanced and nuanced position on these complex matters.

    1. avatar Chris Morton says:

      There’s nothing “nuanced” about Nazis or Marxists.

      Between the two of them, they’ve killed more than 100,000,000 people in the last hundred years.

      They’re nothing more than homicidal sociopaths with juvenile domination fantasies. Where they gain power, millions die.

      1. avatar pwrserge says:

        The Nazis killed a fraction of what Stalin alone did. Add in his buddy Mao and it’s not even a contest. The reality is that in WWII we fucked up by backing Stalin. We should have left Russia swinging in the wind and fought a defensive war in Europe until Hitler got taken out by his own officers and Germany could have been brought to the negotiating table.

          RogueVal you fail world history 101. the Soviet t union was ALLIED with the Nazis at the start of the war. They did not ‘start” it??? The soviets invaded Poland and ended Poland’s existence. Their secret agreement to rape and destroy Poland was the REASON for the start of the war!

          And the Soviets killed WAY more civilians in the 20th century and enslaved hundred of millions. your contention that Hitler murdered more than Pol Pot, Mao, Stalin is literally absurd.

          Antifa, BLM and the left wing violent groups in the US are much larger and more violent. their violence also receives support from the Democrat leadership mainstream.

        4. Derp, we backed the 1st and 2nd most murderous despots in human history against the third. From where I sit, that’s seems stupid. But hey, I can do basic math.

          The Nazis were the immediate threat.

          We later recruited Nazi scientists to assist us in the Cold War against the Soviets.

          We later allied with the mujahedeen against the Soviets in Afghanistan.

    After reading the comments above, I think to many at TTAG underestimate the possible threat of left wing violence. You have to remember that these people don’t believe in God, the Republic or even themselves. They have never been educated in history, philosophy, politics, or natural law. Government schools have left them unequipped to deal with sophisticated messaging. People that inhabit Anti-fa and the like are easily swayed because they have never actually understood who they themselves were and are. All that is needed is a Hitler, a Lenin or a Mao who understands the mob and knows how to ride the angst, and suddenly the crowd goes from brown shirts to black shirts. (The 1930s-40s Variant) Yeah it’s funny to laugh at the feeble, pasty, spoiled rich kid throwing a punch for the first time in their life but give it 5 years a little training and suddenly they become a real threat to freedom, liberty, and truth.
    People who love the good that our forefathers gained for us better start getting involved, voting, and making public argumentation an art form.

    1. avatar New Continental Army says:

      That’s one reason I continue to make the Al Queda analogy. Al Queda fighters weren’t exactly strong, well trained, hardasses like Spetznatz. But they’ve killed probably near a million people in their existence through cowardly but brutal acts. Al Queda in Iraq couldn’t even stand against the piss poor Iraqi Army like the other insurgent groups could, but Al Queda killed far more people through their terror style tactics.

        Religiously brainwashed folks and our antifa clowns are two different beasts. Keep in mind some Al Qaeda, ISIS etc are from horrible countries. Some grew up oppressed, poor, starving, and in the middle of wars. I say “some” as we know Europeans etc have joined ISIS, Al Qaeda, and more will join, but again there is a strong notion of religious brainwashing there. They reach a point of non return where they accept death (martyrs) as part of their purpose on earth. You very rarely find that in anything politically motivated, as people know they have way too much to lose, especially in a country like ours. Antifa also lacks the mindset of the resilient folks defending their homeland (Vietnam, or Taliban vs the Soviets), and obviously they did not grow up in such harsh conditions so they are softer individuals who will give up much faster.

    See, those on the Right have something that the Left will never have. More Guns. They might have a few crappy rifles and some pistols with their allowance from mommy and I’d say maybe one spare mag at most. We have more guns. Guns we can give to our friends and neighbors who are willing to fight alongside us. Most have much better guns. Reluctantly, I don’t have better guns, but I still have multiple guns. However, we also all have some form of body armor. Myself included. Anybody can shoot. Some can shoot well. Very few can shoot after being shot, and we seem to have realized this last fact. We have also spent more time with our guns. We can clear a jam better, perform maintenance better, and more accurately shoot our guns.

    But, I will cede some points to the Leftists. They are more willing to use terrorist tactics. They are more willing to harm innocent civilians. They are more willing to shoot indiscriminately. They are also more willing to run away when shit really goes down.

  33. avatar ATTAGReader says:

    Antifa will instigate one of two bits of violence that will cause their demise. Choice 1 is a repeat of the Death to the Klan rally as in Greensboro NC 1979. Many Antifa types shot. Some killed. Police stood by. Choice 2 is an action in one of their typical left wing cities that gets out of hand. They physically attack a CCW carrier or a cop, maybe an off duty cop. Antifa shot and killed. This sparks a 1960’s style riot except governor calls in State Police if mayor allows the rioting. Antifa shot and killed because State Police. Antifa crawls back into its hole.

    There is no discourse possible with ANTIFA, and that is by design. They are not stupid, in fact many of them are college professors and associate professors. They know perfectly well their philosophy leads to violence and civil war – that is exactly the point. They want to provoke a violent response that will trigger a civil war, martial law, UN troops and the end of America. Don’t take the bait. ANTIFA are nothing but stage props in a preplanned fake narrative. The globalists have to take down America before they can impose total control over the planet.

  37. avatar Hellbilly says:

  38. avatar strych9 says:

    I’ve been mulling this over for part of the day as I ran errands (and I’ve been letting the comment section grow just to see what people have to say). Here’s my $0.02, rather short (for my rambling ass at least) since I covered this in depth like a year ago. (Reposted, most courteously, by John Boch here: http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2017/02/john-boch/ttags-armed-intelligentsia-sound-off-on-civil-war/)

    There are definitely some very, very dangerous people on the far Left. I don’t much care what they call themselves (Antifa, The Weather Underground, Tom’s Chicken and Waffles or whatever). They’re dangerous, violent and looking for a fight. Talking about “right wing groups” at this point is fucking stupid. Whatever you think of Trump or his followers your average person wearing a MAGA hat is not a violent fucktard. Your average person wearing the “Black Bloc” outfit is, on the threat scale, a much higher priority unless you’re a violent fucktard who agrees with them. If you disagree with this then, well, you’re dumb. Sorry, it’s statistics and the current statistics say it’s the Left that are the worrisome ones.

    Now, I still don’t think civil war cometh. I stand by my statements from long ago. However, I would point out that anyone who says this is a bunch of basement dwellers is a fool and unfortunately I see a lot of that flavor of stupidity (or maybe chicanery) here. Such people would do well to read up on how much trouble the Red Army Faction caused in Germany before their eventual demise (which btw was political rather that violent). A small group of assholes can cause a hell of a lot of trouble. Germany had the RAF, we had The Weather Underground (a group that gave up violence only after one of their members fucked up and killed a bunch of WU members when his bomb blew it’s wad early) and the idea that such groups can’t make a resurgence and cause a TON of trouble is, at absolute best, intellectual tomfuckery. They can, and left to their own devices, they probably will return in some form.

    Unfortunately sooner rather than later given the polarized political climate we have today. Fortunately, the chances that you meet any of them is low (unless you go looking for them) and the chances you have a violent confrontation with any of them are therefore, by definition, lower still.

    1. avatar Shiitland Oregon says:

      They are basement dwellers sort of speaking. Show me videos of them putting a good fight when: The cops are not ordered to stand down, their enemy is organized and ready to fight back, or they are not in a cesspool like Berkeley or Portland.
      Again I am in a corner of FL where we have leftists, but I have never seen anyone parading as an anarchist. If the mental midgets were attacking people and destroying property, it would go horribly wrong for them. And that’s in a relatively multicultural, politically divided, and touristic part of Florida.
      I tolerate them to be honest, as long as they keep pooping where they are eating. The moment they have the brilliant idea to start their circus here, and give me one lawful reason to use force it’s all fair game.

      1. avatar strych9 says:

        I suggest you read up on the RAF and WU.

        Confrontation isn’t really their style. Bombings and Dallas style shootings are more their kinda thing.

  39. avatar Shiitland Oregon says:

    You can find footage (other than the excellent videos above) of the antifa scums getting a spanking in their own playgrounds in Portland and California.
    I live in a corner of FL where I see humans everyday, not just gators, and I have not seen any anarchist or commie showing their colors. We have liberals, we have minorities, immigrants, illegals, LGBTQ, you name it…every once in a while you may spot a “resist” or “impeach” bumper sticker, but for one of those you’ll see 50 Molon Labe, MAGA, Hillary for Prison, God bless America, support our troops etc. Again, I am not even in the most conservative part of FL, and FL is far from being the most conservative State.
    The overwhelming majority of these folks are not desperate or oppressed to the point they’ll risk (consciously) their lives (think revolutions through history, militias in Africa and Asia, Talibans…). They back up very quick as soon as they figure the enemy is going to fight and/or the cops have been ordered to do something. It doesn’t take a brave man (or woman) to throw stuff at people and yell like an idiot. Most of these clowns are soft, they did not grow up in a shiithole country, they did not serve, they never had to work hard, and everything has been handled to them either by their parents or the “government”. This is some sort of role playing, and a bunch of idiots seeking a “clan” because as individuals they know they are mediocre. It’s funny seeing them wearing and displaying Soviet colors. I cannot think of many roles these idiots could have taken in URSS, surely not fighting the Nazis in Stalingrad (or anyone anywherre), not even with a miracle considering the beta males and retarded drugged up “females” I have seen in many antifa videos.
    Anyway, here we are on TTAG shiiting our pants because we are hearing/reading “war” and “guns” from punks in tight jeans, junkies, unemployed lazy motherlovers, attic trolls, nerds gone mad, VIP members of planned parenthood, and the 26 years old “kid” still trying to figure out his future with the community college advisor.

  40. avatar Erik Weisz says:

    I follow this stuff pretty seriously. Some things you all need to know:
    The organization behind antifa is BAMN (By Any Means Necessary), run by Shanta Driver (who you should look up) and her former law partner Eileen Scheff, who is also a member of NAMBLA (North American Man-Boy Love Association) and said “I call on all progressive people … to defend NAMBLA and it’s right to advocate for consensual sex regardless of age”. NAMBLA is described as an “ally” of the RWL (Revolutionary Workers League), which is the parent organization of . . . BAMN.
    So, if you’re following so far, yes, some (very real) self-described radical communist pedophiles from California are the actual pinko-commie circle-jerk kiddy-diddlers behind all this bullshit. The Mayor of Berkley (the guy who told the cops to stand down during the riots that prevented Milo Yiannapoulos from speaking there) is an admitted proud member of BAMN (look at his facebook page).
    You may have also seen BAMN’s Yvette Falarca appear on Tucker Carlson – here’s a good primer on her: https://usefulstooges.com/tag/yvette-felarca/
    It was just a few days ago that Don Lemon was openly siding with antifa on national TV.
    I myself am torn between not wanting to see anyone get hurt and waiting for the day antifa finally does something not even the mainstream media (Pravda/TASS) can ignore or excuse. It’ll be open season.

    I don’t believe a single everloving word of anything you jokers say to be true. I remember last year when you clods were all hyped up that “Antifa Super Soldiers” were going to start a revolution on November 4 with “weapons to surpass metal gear” and then ABSOLUTELY NOTHING HAPPENED.

    I spent so much money on supplies it put a strain on my marriage. I BELIEVED IN YOU. Do you realize I looked like a damned FOOL to my nieces and nephews? They outright LAUGHED in my face and told me “metal gear” was from a damned VIDEO GAME.

    I would not be so quick to dismiss this bunch in Austin or their affiliates.

    From the link in the article:

    “Red Guards Austin is a Marxist-Leninist-Maoist, principally Maoist collective based in Austin, TX. Working to build the Communist Party alongside Red Guards Los-Angeles, Red Guards Kansas City, Red Guards Pittsburgh and Red Guards Charlotte.”

    *****************************************************************

    Consider one of the ways that Mao accomplished his goals.

    “At a secret meeting in the Jinjiang Hotel in Shanghai dated March 25, 1959, Mao specifically ordered the party to procure up to one third of all the grain, much more than had ever been the case. At the meeting he announced that “To distribute resources evenly will only ruin the Great Leap Forward. When there is not enough to eat, people starve to death. It is better to let half of the people die so that the other half can eat their fill.”

    I’m not implying that the Austin group or others at this time have the ability to do this, but it is indicative of how they think. And if given the opportunity and political backing of certain politicians that are running for office, they will do many of the same things that Mao did with the goal of purging the country of all opposition.

      Oh, absolutely. That’s the reason they are so keen to control healthcare and other basic needs to the greatest extent possible. Denying the basic needs of life is so much safer, effective, and efficient than direct violence. People won’t obey your will, just starve them. And now that people are proportionally even more reliant on others to provide food for them (far fewer family farms now), we are even more vulnerable to the tactic.

    2. avatar Erik Weisz says:

      74 million people starved to death in Mao’s China in less than 4 years. If memory serves, this was in the 1970’s, long after the “people’s revolution”. This was the worst mass slaughter in human history. Our largest tech companies (and Hollywood as well) cooperate with the oppressive government that still venerates Mao and punishes anyone who dares even talk about this fairly recent act of democide.

    “Hopefully this is nothing more than fanciful talk from the radical left and will go nowhere.”

    Don’t count on it. Sure, most “Antifa” are just angry brats who were improperly potty-trained, but there are enough Bill Ayers — Weather Underground — FALN — BLA wannabees among the great unwashed to do a lot of damage.

    Some of them will blow themselves up, like Terry Robbins and Diana Oughton. Some, like Ayers, will blow up government or corporate buildings (which is why a lot of companies are kowtowing to the Left, hoping to avoid being blown up). Some will be shot down like the dogs that they are. And some will become successful Democrat politicians or educators of your children’s children.

    They should be careful what they wish for. They may just get their wish. I for one say, Bring it!

    Had a conversation with a friend yesterday (not a gun guy) and I invited him to go shooting. May be a convert, we’ll see. He said he did not have a gun, I said not to worry I will take care of that. He asked where we can buy ‘bullets’, I said I will take care of that. He asked how many ‘bullets’ do I have. I half-jokingly told him that I am ready and waiting for the revolution. We laughed. If only he knew……

    Their perceived power is only in liberal cities and in large numbers. If they attempt their shit by bringing it to the red part of this nation they won’t return alive. Patriots won’t heed to their close quarter tactics. Head shots with scoped hunting rifles from 200 yards away that they won’t even hear being fired….starting with the ones in the back..These fools will run like chickens..when heads start exploding..

    Public Officials who in the face of masked vandals order the police to stand down should suffer the following:

    1. Immediate dismissal, with loss of any and all employment related benefits.
    2. Criminal prosecution for grand larceny based on their non-performance of employment responsibilities.
    3. Additionally, the non-performing law officers, aka police agencies should, under penalty of law, be required to explain their non-performance.

  63. avatar Wacker123 says:

    In Virginia it’s against the law to wear a mask in public. In the two recent protest in Charlottesville, why didn’t our prior Democrat governor and the current Democrat Governor (Governor Ralph Northam) order the arrest and prosecution of any and all ANTIFA members wearing a mask, be arrested and tried in court. If the radical right had worn mask you can rest assured they would have been arrested.

    The fact Governor Northam didn’t apply the law equally speaks volumes as to his allegiance to the leftist and Socialist radicals identified as “ANTIFA”

  64. avatar Mikial says:

    Hey, we already had to defend ourselves against the Left’s primary voting block of welfare druggies, criminals and illegals. Then we had to protect ourselves from the Muslim terrorists the Left loves to cozy up to. Now, they’re pushing it up to the next level just like Chairman Mao teaches, to open insurgency. The Left has always been the home of the loonies, the haters, and the people who want to destroy society but have nothing to rebuild in its place. All I can say is “Bring it.” Everyone in my family is trained, legally armed at all times, and prepared to defend ourselves from whoever chooses to try to target us. In other words, this changes nothing.

    I am concerned that leftist professors have corrupted thousands of our children into becoming hate filled zealots for the DNC Socialist Party. The attacks on innocent people that dare support a strong economy, safe streets, prosperity for all, over democrat demands to end free speech, and spread socialist limits on our freedoms are real. The DNC has corrupted Federal Officials and promoted a Coup D’Etat against our President for doing his job. They want another Obama to spread racial hatred and support Islamic terrorism.

  67. if we dig will we find Hillary and Obama behind door number one? and if this is supposed to be a “red guard” why are they wearing orange? they really that stupid? and red guard has been done before, aarp standing behind Hillary, those in venezualla, and the communist countries, well guess I am right about them being communist after all. and also they are anti gun right? but now they have guns, AND passed a background check to get them. and I ‘ll bet they have the demoKratic ( communist scumbags) party behind them supporting their every move.

  68. we need to organize, because they already are. or we have a dim future for this country.

    Exhibit N * answering: “Why does anyone need** an assault-style weapon***, or high-capacity magazine?****”

    * Where “N” is a large integer.

    ** Demonstration of “need” is not required.

    *** Meaningless in use. But if y’all want to ban it, I’m making the argument that it’s useful.

    **** Also meaningless. Mags are made things. Whatever a mag’s size — and sometimes size does matter — it has the *appropriate* capacity. A “high-capacity magazine” has the appropriate capacity for whatever is being done with it, or whoever is using it would have chosen a different size.

    “High-capacity” bans aren’t bans on things; they are bans on uses.
