72% of Americans Expect Political Violence: Take Steps to Protect Yourself From Riots and Violent Protests Now

Political violence isn’t supposed to happen in America. U.S. history is characterized by peaceful changes of power no matter the election results. However, in the age of President Donald Trump, things have changed. A new poll commissioned by the UK’s Independent shows some shocking results: almost three-quarters of Americans worry about political violence on election day and beyond.

Here’s a snip from The Independent.

Nearly three-quarters of Americans are concerned about riots and violence after election day, according to a new poll by The Independent that suggests the United States is a tinderbox of partisan angst.

Almost three in four voters, 72 per cent, describe themselves as very or quite concerned about post-election violence, according to a JL Partners-Independent poll.

More than 70 per cent of both supporters of Donald Trump and Joe Biden, the Democratic presidential nominee, said they have such concerns.

Worries are higher among the president’s backers, with 77 per cent saying they fear violence and riots. Among the former vice president’s supporters, 73 per cent described worries.

We may see real violence as soon as this coming Monday when the full Senate votes on the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court. (Monday also marks Hillary Clinton’s birthday!)

Clearly with all the political violence we’ve witnessed across America since the death of George Floyd, prudent Americans will take steps to protect themselves and their families. Millions of Americans have already done so by taking the first step of buying a firearm and ammunition for the first time this year.

But there’s a lot more to preparing than just buying, or owning a gun. The first step involves educating yourself about Antifa and its tactics.

Who is Antifa?

Antifa organizes allegedly “mostly peaceful protests” in cities across America. Their goal? They want to overthrow of the American system of government.

Some have said Antifa’s thugs are the militant arm of the Democrat party. Not true. These people aren’t Democrats. They’re Marxists. They might use sympathetic Democrat politicians as a means to an end, but Antifa aren’t Democrats. They are dedicated Marxists and generally speaking, not America’s best. They tend to attract a lot of felons, petty criminals, wife beaters, child sex offenders and other social misfits. Some call them “underachievers.” You might call them losers and malcontents.

They and loosely-affiliated “affinity groups” have operated with relative impunity in jurisdictions with sympathetic political and/or law-enforcement leaders. This includes hard-left District Attorneys who make prosecuting decisions.

Many of these politicians have bought their way into office with George Soros’ money. Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx won her race in 2016 largely thanks to about $2 million of support from Soros-funded organizations.  And they’re bankrolling her with another $2 million for her re-election race this year.

Soros only underwrites the most radical of Democrat candidates. Certainly not your grandfather’s Democrats from the John Kennedy era who loved America and would fight to defend her, our form of government, and our way of life.

Antifa also enjoys sympathetic mainstream media coverage. That’s not surprising considering how the mainstream media today are too often just radical political operatives with bylines.

And even if local officials aren’t Soros-funded lefties, Antifa can certainly intimidate local mayors, prosecutors and police chiefs by targeting them — and their families — at their homes.

How does Antifa do this?

Antifa’s black bloc “uniform” conceals their identities and anonymizes them at the same time. It allows their members to act with little or no fear of arrest or prosecution.

Add in local police and prosecutors who probably aren’t going to stop them and Antifa’s insurrectionists can destroy property and attack people without fear of any consequences.

Meanwhile, the complicit mainstream media will cover for them, calling them “protesters” conducting “mostly peaceful protests.” Never mind how these “mostly peaceful” actions have led to over $2 billion in insurance claims.

They also sometimes use guerilla warfare tactics against traditional law enforcement, that police have a hard time countering. Cops can’t be everywhere even in normal times. Now? These aren’t normal times.

With prosecutors not only ignoring looting and rioting arrests, but also hammering cops with claims of “excessive force,” these are anything but normal times. It’s no wonder the cops have frequently stood down. Why should they risk their lives and freedom if the mayor, police chief and local prosecutor won’t support them and the rule of law?

Antifa has learned what works best after months of nightly conflict with law enforcement in Seattle, Portland and other cities. They create a “fog of war” using smoke bombs, strobing flashlights, high powered lasers, thrown bricks and rocks, pepper spray and commercial fireworks. They use these against both cops and innocent civilians.

Much of this merits a deadly force response. But Antifa takes away their targets’ situational awareness. It can be hard to pin down the source of these potentially lethal attacks because you can’t see who is responsible. And decency prevents the law-abiding from just shooting into the mob, even though all individuals among the mob share culpability for the actions of some.

The professional Marxists leading this violence love to mingle among legitimate protesters. These troublemakers also turn out for their own “direct action” events to attack opposing events or tear down statues.

How does this affect you?

Know that Antifa mobs can do pretty much anything they want to you and you can’t stop them. They’ll destroy your vehicle or you residence and the police won’t come to protect you. Neither will the fire department.

If you get taken down to the ground in a fight, you probably won’t get up. They will kick you in the head with their steel toe boots until you’re unconscious or dead. The neutered police won’t save you. On the other hand, those same cops will arrest you if you use deadly force to resist a frenzied attack.

And even if you break off from their attack, oftentimes Antifa will follow you, identify you and then dox your personal information. Then they will come threaten and harass you at your residence, at your workplace or both.

Sadly, Antifa is winning in the sense their fascist tactics intimidate a lot of people, keeping them from expressing their beliefs for fear of reprisals.

Things you can do

There are a number of things you can do in the near term to protect yourself and your family from Antifa and “affinity group” violence.

  1. First and foremost, act to the standard by which you will be judged. Show restraint in using force, especially deadly force in self-defense. Retreat looks really good to juries.
  2. Carry your gun. Your five-shot revolver or .380 makes a fine backup gun. Against a potential mob or gang? Bring enough gun. If you run out of ammo, they will rip you apart. Literally.

Remember, Antifa mobs in several cities have not backed off against armed good guy civilians. They’re accustomed to armed good guys showing great restraint when it comes to using force in self-defense.

  1. Buy self-defense insurance so you can have the best legal defense in case a prosecutor attempts a political prosecution for using force in a self-defense situation. The state has a lot of resources. It’s only fair that you have resources too, so it’s at least a marginally fair fight. US Law Shield has a great product (I’m a dues-paying member). Also worth a mention: Armed Citizens Legal Defense Network (also a member) and US Concealed Carry Association.
  • Protect your home and business with modern, state-of-the-art video surveillance. Cameras won’t protect your life in the moment, but they may protect your freedom (in glorious, vivid ultra-high definition) from mob justice in the aftermath.

  • Consider installing a dash cam system in your car. These help in accidents. In a deadly force encounter? This footage could prove priceless, especially with the audio inside the car for a jury to witness first-hand what the occupants experienced if you’re attacked in your vehicle.

    1. Remember that crowds can form quickly. And violence can start in a matter minutes, especially in a crowd that’s “managed” by these experienced professional agitators.

    You think it can’t happen in your city? Let me dispel that notion. Kenosha has a population of roughly 100,000. It can happen anywhere.

    1. Be especially vigilant if your local PD shoots a black person. This goes double if the person is “unarmed.”

    Lots of Antifa “professionals” in major cities happily travel to a new city on a few hours’ notice. They can come to your town just as easily and they have turned up in small towns like Kenosha, Wauwatosa or Rochester, New York.

    1. Don’t agitate a mob. In your car, avoid crowds in the streets. In your home, pull the blinds and stay inside.
  • Lastly, you can submit to their intimidation to avoid becoming a target. But frankly, Americans don’t have a long history of cowering. Particularly not when faced by fascists.

        Kenosha is an example of what happens when the left faces a real fight. After a Rittenhouse lawfully and heroically defended himself and others, the antifa terrorism ceased that very day.

          Let’s be careful out there! Antifa is a crowd of bullies (which makes them cowards as others have observed) who work in packs to take people down. Their favorite tactic is to surround a target casually and then start their beating with a “sucker punch”. If you watch the videos you will see them do this over and over. Once you are down they all fall on you and kick the crap out of you. So don’t go alone to these “peaceful protests”. Have a group of like-minded individuals with you, all dressed like ANTIFA so you blend in, and then wait for one of their vulture like swoops to take them to task. Be prepared to use weapons that you have available and don’t take a knife to a gun fight. ANTIFA has weapon carriers in each pack who will show up to hand over bats, clubs, knives, tear gas, etc. when the pack needs them and then retreat with the weapons when the beating is over. As you have previously seen, once you make the bullies pay they tend to leave town and look for easier targets, the same way home invaders are put off by security lighting and dogs. But it will take “fighting fire with fire” because that is the only way that they will get the message. They are a bunch of misfits who want to be in control and get off on beating people — that is until someone shows them what it’s like to be on the receiving end. You must be able to trust and rely on the people that you are with!

        Soooooooo… Disagree with this. The democrat party today is not the democrats of the 1990s. The 1990s democrats were capitalists that wanted a little bit of marxism. They were marxist/socialist sympathizers that liked the idea of, some, of what socialism had to offer. Now they were not old school socialists of the late 1800s or early 1900s (socialism = seizing the means of production and distribution and managing directly). No. They were new world socialists (socialism = seizing the money from private production and private distribution and then redistributing it to certain select productions and distributions). Fast forward 30 years, and modern day democrats are very much new world socialists. They want to tax you at like 60-80% (think Bernie) and then redistribute those funds to select productions and distributions like healthcare, education, and safety nets. The goal is to de-privatize healthcare, education, etc. Now the democrats already achieved this with retirement (social security (which they bankrupted), Medicare/Medicaid) and other safety nets like obamaphones, section 8 housing, WIC, Food stamps, EBT cards, etc. Now the federal budget spends about 60-70% of its entire budget on these social programs. But they want to expand them to encompass all health care (single payer), and completely subsidize universities. And don’t get me started on the “green new deal” which is essentially heavily regulating anything the produces vaporous carbon (CO, CO2, methane, hydrocarbons). And money is no object for these people. It’s almost like they see money as just something they are entitled to, that is to be harvested from the people. And so I disagree that democrats today are not socialists. They are more socialist now than they ever have been, and everyday they go further and further “left.” Antifa are the young people, all young people, and are the future of the democrat party, many of which are specifically trained in “activist studies” such as gender studies, african american studies, womens studies, American Indian/Native/Indigenous studies, Hispanic studies, LGBT studies. Examples: https://www.conservapedia.com/Worst_College_Majors#Courses

        The future of the democrat party, is marxism/socialism. The youngest members of elected democrats, are marxists. Example: AOC, Rashida tlaib, Ilhan Omar, etc. They advocate “activist studies” related topics, and the solution to their perceived problems is socialism/marxism.

          Yes there was a suspicious amount of downplaying going on in this article, as far as the connection between the democrat party and violent leftist (antifa, BLM). That connection is obvious for anyone willing to use their powers of observation and apply common sense.

          Democrats of the 1960s are not the democrats of today. Democrats in the 60s liked America.

          1. avatar anonymous says:

            Yes. Example:
            “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.”

            This is not the message of democrats today. Today, democrats are the party of free **** at everyone else’s expense. Commie, “sharing is caring,” crap. Are you a wealth business magnate? That means you stole the labor of the oppressed and downtrodden to become rich. Are you a part of a large corporation? That means you need to “give back” as if you took something away to begin with.

          I think you are describing Fascism but I get the point.

          1. avatar anonymous says:

            What Fascism and Socialism have in common are power grabs. In both systems, obtaining the ability to force the populace to do what is wanted by those in power. So in reality, the problem isn’t left vs right, but freedom vs tyranny.

            Fascism is traditionally nationalistic. Separatist. Call for unity. And strict control over behavior and processes within bureaucracies. It is extremely orderly. Fascists literally force people to do what they want, and they call it “direct action.” But it is not fascism until the power grab is performed.

            Marxism (socialism/communism) is collectivist in nature. The “collective” has rights. Not the individual. The individual becomes a metric. Everything is “shared.” It is “equality extremism.” But it is not marxism until the power grab is performed.

        5. avatar SoCalJack says:

          Sorry ‘anon’ – the CURRENT state of what was the ‘democRAT’ party is flat out marxist. Period.

        7. avatar Chris Morton says:

          Saying that Antifa and BLM aren’t Democrats is like saying that Ernst Roehm and the Sturm Abteilung weren’t Nazis. They have shared goals and leading Democrats enthusiastically defend them.

          Yeah and they share many of the same funding sources. Democrats are either the dumb ones that believe anything or in with the idea of a french revolution being executed by the street soldiers. The street soldiers are the marxist groups like blm or pantifa.

        the lead-in of this article is very misleading. Sure, recent history has been characterized by “mostly” peaceful transfers of power, but this has certainly not always been the case…

        The fact is, this country has a long history of competing factions warring with each other. Heck, it was founded in a similar manner. (I am not advocating violence, just pointing out the truth.)

        1. avatar gus says:

          in the latter 1800’s early 1900’s there was certainly violence over race, union labor, and religion. there had been times they even deployed machine guns to break union strikes. I think nowhere near as much violence over politics but America was no stranger to violence and fear.

          right now we don’t have as much person-on-person violence as there was for those other reasons 100-150 years ago, but the next few months has the potential to eclipse any of that by far.

          and the current thrust of the Marxist-Democrats almost guarantees that eventually. they proclaim their goal to hold America hostage with violence, destruction and discord, building up their twisted reasons for it by blaming their belligerence on everyone who isn’t with them.

          they aren’t asking for a compromise or even a discussion. the only deal they offer is capitulation (give them political power, turn the government socialist/marxist, and surrender your rights, and your way of life, and those of your children, and their children, and so on) or you get violence and destruction.

          literally. this is not an overstatement. that is what they are doing.

          there should be no compromise with terrorists.

        2. avatar Chris Morton says:

          The Democrats and their Antifa and BLM surrogates are returning the Democrat party to its traditions as a deeply racialist party and enthusiastic users of terrorist violence to suppress dissent against them.

          The Democrat party is the party of:
          * slavery
          * secession
          * Jim Crow
          * lynching
          * racial concentration camps

          Today’s Democrat party is just returning to its roots.

Local lakes will be stripped of fish, and frogs will soon follow.

          That is their play… I prefer the “take out the obvious instigators/leaders and the rest will crumble crawling back to mommies basement basking in the fading glow of what might have been as they trade stories of delusional grandeur with fellow losers…

          1. avatar strych9 says:

            You don’t take out the instigators and leave the rest.

            Marxism, especially its more violent strains, are aggressively expansionist. Survivors will regroup and come back at you.

            This goes sideways that bad, where they “go Khmer Rouge”, then the only option for the rest of us is extermination. Us or them, one group is getting wiped out eventually because that’s how this game goes and when you dance with the Devil, he picks the tune and you wait for the damned song to stop.

            This is why I’ve always disliked the boogbois. They’re idiots who have no idea what they’re asking for don’t actually have the stones for what they would get.

            You go down this road in a country this large and you’re talking tens of millions dead. The boogbois don’t have that kind of sack. If they did they’d be signed up with the Kurds to kill Hajis and get in on some war crimes.

          2. avatar MADDMAXX says:

            Survivors will regroup and come back at you

            No, they won’t… Don’t know how much EXPERIENCE you have with this but in my dealings with groups like this the “brave” goes away when the brains and blood become a reality… There is a big difference between playing stupid games with little or no resistance and the realization that there might be FATAL consequences to their actions.. However, you can go scorched earth and answer to whomever you must, I’ll show some restraint and stop when the threat is removed.. If they do come back they will already be aware of my resolve AND I have a shit load of bullets in reserve…

          3. avatar strych9 says:

            So, let me get this straight, just to make sure I’ve got your argument down.

            You’re the one who brought up THEM starting literal killing-fields mass murder and, according to you, your next move is to pop a few and hope the rest, who now have literally nothing to lose, are just going to run away and wait for LE/mil to come and take them off the death row?

            That’s your thought process?

          4. avatar MADDMAXX says:

            That’s your thought process?

            I never said anything about THEM.. that line of thought was started by Southern Cross who brought up the Khmer Rouge thing… I have personal knowledge of the killing fields, I WON’T go there and doubt seriously if ANYONE posting here has the stomach for such wholesale bloodshed.. Your tactics may look good on paper or in Call of Duty but in any circumstance other than all out war that shit won’t fly… You have totally misconstrued what I said OR you just don’t understand the English language…. It matters not, it’s a lot easier to sit around and talk about killing a shitload of people than it is to actually do it (something I have done.. Have you?)

          5. avatar strych9 says:

            *Yawn*

            First, you’re replying to a thread about them “going Khmer Rouge”… so that’s baked into the conversation.

            Secondly, you start this from the point of anyone who disagrees with you has zero experience and your experience leads you to infallibility… And then you move to insults. Nice, very erudite and adult of you.

            Oh, and yes, done seen some shit first hand. Unpleasant type things in unpleasant type places on other continents.

            However, having done that I’ve also studied how this actually works when it’s a civil war under certain circumstances. See, there’s this whole thing about a civil war in this country and at this point in time that’s entirely different than what we’ve mostly seen before. The closest widely known analogue is something akin to Syria (though some shit in Africa is probably better but significantly lesser known). This is because at least one side has been taught, via propaganda, that the other side doesn’t just have a disagreement with them but is, instead, essentially subhuman in a very specific way.

            The problem is that at least one side has internalized not hatred but disgust with the very existence of the other side. Hatred is tempered over time by hard realities. Weariness can cause hatred to fade to anger and angry people can, in fact, be reasoned with. Disgust doesn’t work that way. And in a conflict where one side is disgusted enough with the simple existence of the other side that the first side is willing to open up “the killing fields”, which is what this little sub-thread is about, that shit’s not going to stop until one side or the other “wins” which means that the other side is gone to the point of being undetectable. That’s what genocide like this is. A “cleansing” if you will, and you don’t stop cleaning while things are still dirty, do you? You don’t just kill the leaders of the roaches in your house, do you? No, you wipe them out.

            The propaganda I refer to has been increasingly common in the last 40 or so years and is like Hitler’s type of propaganda. It’s extremely dangerous because it activates something in people that doesn’t stop until one side or the other is wiped out. It’s what makes concentration camp guards, SS units and, yes, killing fields.

            And this is why I’ve said that there will be no “amicable divorce” (though I agree that would be preferable). You can’t have one with people who are disgusted by your mere existence. At best you’ll end up with a country that has a contiguous border with yours and is full of people plotting a war of extermination against you.

            The point here is that what people like you or I might want doesn’t matter. I judge from your comments that you’d prefer to be ethical but that doesn’t matter when *they* are not. When you go this far down the road discussed in this thread what you or I want doesn’t matter because the other side won’t stop until one side is basically eradicated.

            There is no other option and if you wait long enough they’ll bring that shit to your doorstep. Just like Burma, Cambodia, Algeria, Yugoslavia, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Japan in Indochina, China under Mao, Nazi Germany, the USSR, Uganda etc etc etc etc.

            If it goes that far, to actual killing fields then the choice you get is binary at that point. They die or you die because you will not reason with someone like Idi Amin. He will stop only when, for one reason or another, he can no longer carry on acting on his disgust. But the sad fact is that his followers are basically the same way.

        Brown shirts. Sturmabteilung in German. Hitler’s thugs roaming the streets and literally pummeling anyone they perceived as not being loyal to the Nazi Party. The Brown Shirts evolved into a stronger force, but was eventually disbanded entirely as the National Socialists collapsed.

        Antifa. Terrorists in modern American English. Marxist thugs roaming the streets and literally pummeling anyone they perceive and not being loyal to their anti-capitalist and anti-freedom ideology. The current Starbux Hipster version is evolving into a stronger force complete with weapons, but will eventually collapse once enough of them are sent to the Hereafter as a result of people fighting back against their violence.

    13. avatar RGP says:

      Antifa and BLM can only operate in areas where they have the full cooperation of local government, local law enforcement, and local courts. This has been proven repeatedly when they’ve tried to “expand” and take it to small towns and suburbs, and it’s been proven repeatedly when they are protected by prosecutors and prosecutors have instead gone after victimized citizens who have defended themselves against the mob. Without full cooperation of local authorities, Antifa and BLM are literally dead in their tracks.

      2. avatar Justsomeguy says:

        Your comment needs to be shouted far and wide because it is the basis for their current tactics. They are trying to provoke a response and put the respondent between them and the legal system. That only works if the legal system is complicit. If they don’t have a complicit legal system they would have to change to more direct tactics and they know that their chances are not good if they do that.

      This will happen only in Democrat-run cities and towns.

      Things will be very different in Conservative-run areas. The warning has already been made down here in central Florida by the county sheriff, Grady Judd :

      “I would tell them, if you value your life, they probably shouldn’t do that in Polk County. Because the people of Polk County like guns, they have guns, I encourage them to own guns, and they’re going to be in their homes tonight with their guns loaded, and if you try to break into their homes to steal, to set fires, I’m highly recommending they blow you back out of the house with their guns.

      Political violence isn’t supposed to happen in America

      Unfortunately this is no longer THAT America… That America has been infiltrated by ideologies that are not compatible with the American way of life.. People who can’t stand to see other individuals walking around freely making their own choices daily about the direction of their own lives… Those people have spent decades/generations cultivating the youth, gaining power in ALL levels of government, the judicial system AND the education system while twisting the words of the one document that they truly hate to change the very fabric of American society.. We should have stood up when they used “separation of church and state” to get rid of school prayer.. THAT was not the intent of “Freedom of Religion” It simply prohibited the state from CREATING a national church and forcing the citizenry to become a part of it (Church of England)… That was the beginning of the downfall and they have been chipping away at the edges ever since… The Constitution was NOT designed to be “interpreted” It was written in the plain language of the day and the meanings of those words have NOT changed since it’s inception… We have come to the point where those who would see America destroyed have gained enough power to (in the words Barack aka “Beijing Barry” Obama) fundamentally change the country… They have corrupted our youth by erasing their history and replacing it with the narrative that everything, from the foundation of this Republic to the use of the phrase “sexual preference” (Webster’s dictionary changed the meaning of those words OVER NIGHT) is based on racism, homophobia, xenophobia, sexism or whatever other derogatory bullshit they can come up with to describe the American people (now it’s WHITE American people).. This can not stand, either we purge our government and our schools of this plague or we fall, the country that saved the world “twice” will not be able to save itself and the seemingly hollow (at the time) prediction of Nakita (“we will bury you”) Khrushchev will come to pass as this once unique and highly prosperous experiment will have proven to be just another failed society fading into the obscurity of the history of the world… I used to ask “A hundred years from now who’s going to give a fuck?” I have finally found the answer and it is NO one…

        The Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday unanimously advanced the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett at its executive business meeting despite a decision by Democrats to boycott the Thursday markup in protest of how close Republicans are moving the nomination to Election Day.

        Barrett was reported favorably out of the Judiciary Committee by 12-0, with no Democrats present.

      A little lesson from my dear departed Old Man. Living through the Depression there was a saying Butter and Bullets. Those were the two things everyone needed. The butter referred to food in general and bullets had a two fold meaning. 1) You needed bullets in order to obtain food,Hunting. 2) You needed bullets to protect what food you had from those who would steal it. Nothing much has changed in the last 90 years. Food it still a top priority as well as security. The big difference really is in the procurement of food. Many people during the Depression raised much of their food and willingly shared what they could. I remember my father talking about how the men in the community would go on hunts to help provide additional food for the entire community. These days that kind of behavior is pretty much non existent. Now everyone goes to the grocery store for their food and we’ve seen in recent times when food and other supplies have been in short supply due to the Chinese Flu. Much of the food delivery system is still in perilous condition. Now throw wholesale violence into the mix especially in the major cities and imagine the resulting chaos. The whole point of this post is this. If you aren’t prepared for shortages even bigger than those created by the Chinese Flu Pandemic. You damn well better be stocking up hard and fast. I see No good coming on November 4th regardless of who wins. President Reagan said: We are but one generation away from the extinction of Freedom. This may well be that generation or at the very least the greatest test of Our nations resolve since the Civil War. I hope all who read this take heed and prepare. The cost of not being prepared could well be higher than anyone wants to pay. If nothing comes of this and all ends well. Nothing you’ve stocked or stored will go to waste as it can be used as necessary. Just know that the hardest thing to face is the regret of not being prepared and suffering because of it. Keep Your Powder Dry.

      Thankfully (also intentionally) I live in a place where this shit just isn’t going to happen. One time, one ANTIFA group threatened to show up at a local business. 20 heavily armed local community members did, they didn’t, everyone said their goodbyes and thank yous and went home. Not a peep since. No BLM bullshit either, even though we have a large black population and it’s almost 50-50 Lefties and Righties amongst everyone else. Our Democrats are the Blue Dogs, who I hope have discovered that their party doesn’t give two shits about them. Pretty much every Hispanic person I know is hardcore on the Trump Train.

        “The neutered police won’t save you. On the other hand, those same cops will arrest you if you use deadly force to resist a frenzied attack.”

        So this touches on something I’ve been hesitant to say but which every person who finds this whole thing concerning had better spend a moment thinking about. In such a situation, at what point do you realize that you’re fucked and just take as many with you as you can?.

        I’m not referring to Antifa. I mean TPTB. Politicians. Bureaucrats. Their enforcers. At a certain point they have all declared themselves to be enemies of both YOU and of the Republic. It would be wise to reflect on what that point is for you personally, which is to say, at what point do you simply raise the black flag and slit the throats of everyone who presents a threat to you, yours and your country regardless of who they are or how they identify themselves?

        Sorta heavy, but I suggest you “get right with the Lord” before you, God forbid, have to decide on the fly. Know in advance where your personal line in the sand is so that there’s no question what happens when someone crosses that line.

        Sorry to say it but if Antifa can attack you without consequence and the cops will come after you for defending yourself then the only difference between them is the color of the uniform they wear. At that point both are your enemies and you better have that sorted out in your head before shit goes down.

          4. avatar uncommon_sense says:

            jwm,

            Good question. Here are a couple Bible versus of interest:

            Ephesians 4:29
            Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.

            Colossians 3:8
            But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth.

            On a more general vein, people of faith regard sex in marriage as a wonderful and sacred gift from God whereas the term f*** suggests sex is casual and anything but sacred.

          5. avatar strych9 says:

            Colossians is an interesting one since the very next line could be taken to suggest that “filthy language” is referring to knowingly speaking untruths, that is, lying.

            It’s also interesting to scan down the page to 3:22 where it says “Slaves, obey your earthly masters in everything; and do it, not only when their eye is on you and to curry their favor, but with sincerity of heart and reverence for the Lord.” which is interesting considering the current circumstances. Odd juxtaposition between that Heavenly command and the concept of being free, eh?

            I mean, if one were to take 3:22 in a literal and serious manner, the ATF/whatever government agency can do no wrong and you are bound to obey your masters at all times “with sincerity of heart”.

          6. avatar uncommon_sense says:

            Strych9,

            That verse for slaves to obey their Earthly masters refers to debtors who were “enslaved” to pay off their monetary debt. That verse is basically telling those debtors to not sandbag.

            That verse is not referring to government. There is a separate verse instructing people to submit to governing authorities — and other Bible verses make it clear that God only expects us to submit to governing authorities as long as the demands of those governing authorities are righteous and do not conflict with other commands from God.

          7. avatar strych9 says:

            “That verse for slaves to obey their Earthly masters refers to debtors who were “enslaved” to pay off their monetary debt. That verse is basically telling those debtors to not sandbag.”

            I would question this since Jesus Himself, historically speaking, got nailed to a piece of wood for saying the opposite. Christ’s killing was about money and politics, not religion. Christianity wasn’t just “revolutionary” in a spiritual sense, it was quite the revolutionary movement socially and politically.

            Matthew 22:21 is pretty explicit about this if you follow the actual logic of Christianity out of Judaism. The only debts you can really owe are to God and “the law” in Judea at the time had for decades been Roman, making it, particularly in the eyes of an iconoclast like Christ, both pagan and sinful.

            If you look back at the history that coincides with the Bible Matthew 22:21caused quite a stir, particularly among the high-ranking and rich Jews in the area. It was not lost on them that they were, in Christian eyes, identical to Caesar; naught but ashes and dust. Therefore they could never own anything, the only real owner was God. And if one cannot own anything one cannot be owed anything, which is the point of Matthew 22:21’s comment on taxation (and also a source for a lot of dislike towards the Jews later on because they could engage in “usury” for profit where Christians couldn’t loan money at interest). This differs from the Jewish tradition on the subject(s) and it’s a big part of what makes the historical Christ a radical in the eyes of so many people at the time. Christianity is the first large religion in the area to essentially say “ALL things belong to God at ALL times. At best he lets you use them out of His love for you.” That is radically different from the Jewish view on temporal objects like money and property.

            Read against the Jewish revolts, which are obviously motivated in large part by anti-tax sentiments and juxtaposed against the “persecution” (in quotes because some of the more radical Christians intentionally brought this on themselves and even spurned Roman legal attempts to let them off the hook because they believed it would bring about the Rapture) of Christians by the Romans from the time of Christ until the fall of the Western Empire it makes very little sense to suggest that this is about debt bondage which was a huge issue for both Abrahamic religions at this point and a bone of contention that had gotten a lot of them killed by TPTW.

            It’s especially hard to believe considering that within the Empire, as Christianity is expanding rapidly from the 100’s and into the 200’s, the two really large constituencies of Christians were, in order of size, were slaves and soldiers. Followed by middle and upper-middle class housewives interestingly enough.

            And set them upright at their dear friends’ doors,

            And on their skins, as on the bark of trees,
            Have with my knife carved in Roman letters,
            ‘Let not your sorrow die, though I am dead.’

          Totally agree, and I’ve been beating that same drum for months. But the left doesn’t hold a monopoly on cognitive dissonance and our side can be just as mind numbingly stupid. Between the police responses to the (illegal, immoral, and unconstitutional) COVID “shutdowns” and then the riots over the summer, it has become ABUNDANTLY clear that the police serve the state, and when told to choose between serving their paymasters in government and the people they’re sworn to protect, 95% will side with the state at the expense of the people.

          Ironically, given the hatred the two groups have for each other, Antifa/BLM can ONLY operate with the support and protection of the police, a service they seem quite happy to provide

        2. avatar FormerParatrooper says:

          Maybe I should clarify.

          They were brothers in arms.

          Think back to the Civil War as well. West Point classmates fought each other in the field. Brothers fought each other. Neighbors fought each other.

          After the war, some kept the animosity and often in was fatal. Some reconciled, and 50 years later the celebrated the end of the war in thier respective Blue or Gray uniforms as brothers again.

          However, I do not think reconciliation would be possible if they were to lose the war they seem to want. They have a hatred that goes to the core of their being, they will never accept thier loss or ever attempt to be civil. They may want to claim coexistence, but we know when someone wants you subjugated or dead, coexistence is not possible.

The thing that sucks, is that your average college student today has virtually no idea who said what and who did what and has virtually no critical thinking skills. This is evidenced when they find out that Biden is the one who actually said all those racist things, but then continues to state that they will vote for him anyway, because Orange man bad.

      I read an article from a conservative trans that infiltrated Antifa. They are truly provocateurs. Their goal is to harass with apparent minimal force and then record an overreaction. The example given was repeatedly shoving a cop and then posting a video of the cop punching a “protestor.” They’ll usually arm themselves with common items that can be utilized as weapons (bike locks and skateboards), hit their target (police line, burn government building, etc), and then scatter in all directions. They also have access to guns, but they aren’t carried much because that doesn’t fit the innocent image they’re trying to project. The best thing you can do it not engage them. If you must, then leave your ego at home, laugh in their face, and turn the other cheek. Even better is to capture them being the aggressive harasser of an innocent, law-abiding citizen and getting no reflected aggression.
      I expect then to riot either way the election comes out. Either it’s rage against Trump, or it’s a celebration of the inmates getting to run the asylum. The practical effect will be indistinguishable.

        I don’t get this provocation crap. if someone shoves/punches/kicks you, you have the right to fight back. if you are confronted with a mob of threatening people, and you think some of them might have weapons, you have the right to draw. even if none of them have weapons you still have the right to use deadly force to protect yourself from assault by a mob.

        Even if they happen to snatch and yank my MAGA hat off me… which also happens to be my favorite fishing hat. You know… the one I keep plenty of extra fishing hooks stuck in… for when I go “fishing”.

        I would really hate to lose that hat… but I won’t attempt to get it back. Besides, all that screaming surely won’t be good for my nerves. So, I’ll probably just call it a loss and walk away… and not be confrontational.

The 🖕🐀💩 dem cities and states will look like a war zone that lost the war! The buck fiden family cartel will go down in flames! Got Gitmo Joe? Stocking up on Ukraine and China post cards to send them in jail! Sad part is they are the tip of the manure pile! How many other politicians have sold us out using the foreign aid policies to get money through their families? Quite a few I bet! Time to excavate the swamp!!!%

      I expect riots regardless of who wins. These will be in the usual suspect places. Glad I don’t live in any of those places. Where I live, we have the usual city, county and small town policing dynamics. We are in a small town, buffered by the county from the city. This county and all the others surrounding it have declared themselves as 2A sanctuary areas. The prosecutor and judges are known for zero tolerance on drug dealers, perverts and pedophiles, and violent criminals. No problems there. The small town police force here really is pretty good and after an incident a few years ago with a mental patient and an AK the cops now have AR’s in the vehicles. Many are recent military. The $64 question is the Democrat-controlled smallish city and how the police would be told to respond if there were riots. There are a LOT of gun stores in the city, and a lot of retired military and LEO live here, especially in the smaller towns. Since the violence began in the spring, we have kept clear of downtown and other areas where trouble might be found. I now carry pretty much every where. We keep plenty of food and protection at home. But I am still concerned for other areas of the country that are not as demographically fortunate.

      I agree, No matter who wins, November 4th will be a mess. I just wish voters would educate themselves, Every time a dem opens their mouth, they are lying. The SCOTUS nomination and hearings of Judge Amy Barrett is a great example. This is a perfect choice for the court. She follows the law and the constitution, what could be wrong with that. For the dems it’s not about a better America, it’s about controlling the populous. Why do they want control of your health care. it’s about controlling you. Biden was there for the last 47 years, think about that, 47 years and he did nothing but line his pockets. Democrats are the new communists. I wish someone could prove this wrong, not a chance because facts matter.

    50. avatar Ralph says:

      If Trump wins, the left will riot. If Biden wins, the left will come for us, but they’ll probably send in the Crushers to do their dirty work. If the cops can’t or won’t do it, they’ll send the military. Either way, we’ll need to defend ourselves.

      I’m not a big fan of .223, and most of my ARs are 7.62×39.

      I do have a bunch of mags full of M855, and am very happy to report that I just scored a case of brass cased 55gr pointed soft point.
      Did I mention the 20″ barrel?

      Bye bye bicep!

        2nd that. I built one after my Saiga kept giving me fits. 7.62 on the AR platform is where it’s at.

      3. avatar gus says:

        I heard that no 7.62×39 AR mags are reliable, and the bolts have a habit of breaking.

          You’ve apparently been given some bad information by someone using CHEAP shit… I have two ARs in 7.62×39 and I’ve run 1000 rounds plus through each of them and they’ve performed flawlessly… Buy GOOD stuff get GOOD results…

      ANTIFA is not Fascist, using Fascist tactics, it is Communist, using Marxist tactics. The so-called Fascists rose as a legitimate response to Communism, after Conservative groups proved unwilling, impotent, or just too (((cucked))) to provide the necessary level of response.

      1. avatar jwm says:

        There is no, repeat, no difference in a communist and a fascist. They are brothers under the skin. They seek control and are willing to murder for it.

      Black Aces Tactical Magazine Fed Semi-Automatic Bullpup 12ga. Is back in stock today at dealers but they will be gone by the weekend. 28″ long 18.5″ barrel stick and 20rd drum magazines. #4 buckshot or Rubber Buckshot. The rate of fire is impressive. Makes up for your lack of number of shooters v rioters and for spray and pray shooter it fills the bill. You have about ten days to shore up your stuff so get after it now. AMMOSEEK.COM has sources for ammo in stock. 00 Buck Rio about buck a round.

      1. avatar gus says:

        most people don’t pay attention to this, but a shotgun will only last 2 or 3 weeks of hard use before breaking so bad it needs a gunsmith to fix, if not thrown away and need a new one. good for occasional use, not good to rely on for extended use in trying times.

        you don’t want to be left with a broken shotgun and a pile of shells when you could have bought an AR or AK instead.

        1. avatar MADDMAXX says:

          What kind of rinky-dink cheap ass stuff do buy? Really I want to know so I don’t screw up and buy the same the same crap… What do YOU consider “extended use”? NORMAL use for my gunS is three to four trips to the range monthly, including 12 gauge shotguns (sometimes more with the hand guns) running at least 200 rounds per depending on what I take that day (the Mauser only gets 30 to 50 rounds per trip x four time per year) I clean my guns after each trip and keep them well lubed… Try it you might be surprised…

        Personally, I use a range to threat rule: I have my AR scoped for out to (in my area) around 200-300 yards max distance before line of sight is blocked – usually less than that even. When the 13 magazines are empty by around 50 yards Black Bess is transitioned for my shotgun and it’s time to get “plumb, mad-dog mean.”
        No doubt a few will make it past the hail of 7, 3″ rounds of #00 Buck, and since they will be propelled by the rapturous joy of Marxism I can then use my Glock 19 at 30 yards in. As a last ditch measure, to curb the zeal of the last Antifa rodents I can New York reload with a handy .380 Ruger pocket rocket for the last couple of stumbling goofs. If there is still one left I have various sharp implement as well as at least two longarms that will do double duty as clubs.

        After that I’ll light a cigar and go back inside to finish watching “Outlaw Josey Wales”.

        1. avatar Scott High says:

          Sounds like a reasonable plan but since they are all semi-autos you might want to have a (bolt action) Ruger Gunsite Scout in your preferred caliber as a backup. Just applying Murphy’s Law!

          1. avatar Scott says:

            Yeah, I’d love a Scout but I’m broke after buying all that toilet paper for the Wupocalypse. I have a few pocketfuls of slug for the 870 to extend the range some, and being a pump it ought to hold up long enough to bring em in to pistol range. I’m tempted to get a flamethrower for the stragglers but I figure a lot of them will drop their molotovs in the dying process and add to the confusion as well as enhance target acquisition with the firelight.

            The house is two-story, and being too broken and getting too old for rucking and rollicking the second floor with abundant visibility will have to be the hill I die on in the pestilential Blue City I live near. I’ll go all Rorke’s Drift on the commies for as long as I can or they get the hell off my lawn.

            In any case I’m getting sick and tired of people worrying about if they are Marxist or Socialist or just stupid doom-lemmings LARPing their way through RiotsRUs. If they are a direct threat while they do their direct action-ing then they will be shot regardless of ideology. That’s all the thought that needs to go into it other than the legal parameters of being able to shoot them – it’s a one-size fits all thing.

            Tactically, if anyone thinks going to a riot is a good idea then vaya con dios, my friend – can you give me your keys before since you probably won’t be needing them anymore? Distance is out friend in such matters and I have no reason at all to voluntarily get close enough to any of those commies to go mano a whatever they identify as. But if they come to my neighborhood then I have been ready for years for that sort of nonsense and am more than willing, trained, and able to do what I need to to protect my home and family. We have our plan, the kids are grown and gone, and the older I’ve gotten the more I’ve taken to heart the things said by wiser men than myself about how when you have nothing left to lose you are actually free again. All manly humor at deer camp aside, let them come so I can do my part so hopefully my kids or grandkids won’t have to.

          2. avatar Scott High says:

            I am not about to attend any “peaceful protests” no matter where they are and I hope that no one else does without overwhelming numbers, the proper weapons, the willingness to use them, and the skills of a ninja. It is a recipe for disaster to jump into a crowd of confusion and assume that you are smart enough to sort it out. Be prepared for when Trump wins. You ain’t seen nothing yet. I prefer to have my back against the wall of my own home and know that any threat coming towards me is a legitimate danger.

      The violence and destruction in our cities and towns is being funded and supported by the democrat party and its big donors! The cops are reluctant to stop these terrorists so the people will be on their own! Are rioting, looting, arson still a crime?

      1. avatar Scott says:

        You might want to look up your state’s laws on lethal force to protect property.

        In my state the only exemptions to not being able to use lethal force to protect property are: “When the person reasonably believes it necessary to prevent the commission of arson or a felony by force and violence by the trespasser.”

        So I think BLM/antifa goons brandishing molotovs and/or threatening me with bodily harm fits the bill. Lord knows there is plenty of precedent lately on the evening news and these goofs don’t seem to worry about broadcasting intent.

        An interesting aside – I Googled the statute to get the language right and what came back as the the first highlighted entry was some bit from the local news channel saying that there is NO legal right to use lethal force to protect property. Man, I pity the average person who would probably see that, look no further, and just let their home burn down or be swarmed and beaten half to death on their porch because they didn’t do ten seconds of effort to look up the law from actual statues in stead of whatever some talking suit collaborator claims it to be.

        Remember kids – in such life and death matters GOOGLE is not your friend. Use your head.
