91% of Democrats See Political Violence Coming. What That May Mean for You

(AP Photo/John Rudoff)

The Washington Examiner reports that the vast majority of Democrats expect to see politically-motivated violence resulting from the current political war of words. In fact, 91% of Democrats believe this, compared to “only” 61% of Republicans.

Here’s an excerpt from the Examiner story:

After a week that saw President Trump and his foes toss toxic words at each other, there is now a warning that the next phase could be “violence.”

Nearly 8 of 10 Americans told the Pew Research Center that supporters for both sides could “act” on the politically charged rhetoric with violence. It was higher for Democrats, 91%, than Republicans, 61%.

“Could be” violence? Have the folks at Pew been living under a rock? Have they forgotten the Bernie bro from Illinois who tried to assassinate Congressional Republicans?

From Buzzfeed:

At around 7:06 a.m., a man in a blue T-shirt approached the field and fired 62 7.62x39mm rounds through a lawfully purchased Century International Arms SKS-style semiautomatic assault rifle, according to Alexandria’s elected prosecutor. The shooting, he concluded, was “an act of terrorism” that was “fueled by rage against Republican legislators.” The day was one in a continuum of violent, surreal days over the past year, from mass shootings to Charlottesville.

You may love them, or you may disagree with almost everything they stand for, but that morning, the roughly two dozen people on that field just tried to stay alive. Those nine minutes were a near miss of modern American history, between the dark aftermath of a deadly, mass political assassination and our own reality, in which most people don’t think very often about June 14, 2017, the difference between everything changing and almost nothing changing at all.

Read a vivid description of what happened at the link.

 

Meanwhile, over at Law Enforcement Today, they have expressed serious concerns about the possibility of more political violence. Obviously.

91% of Democrats and 61% of Republicans surveyed by the Pew Research Center believe that the political war of words will escalate to violence.

These “words” either involve law enforcement or are directed at members of the law enforcement community, since our police officers are the first line of defense in protests and neighborhood “assemblies.”

But not only for law enforcement officers.

This translates directly into violence towards our police in a very simple way – Trump supports law enforcement, and the mainstream media doesn’t. Liberals attack those they’ve been programmed to attack, and the enemies are delineated very clearly – conservatives, the police, the military, and anyone who supports any of these elements.

Citizens with only a minimal disdain for authority or those in police work have been effectively radicalized, and watching this unfold has been significantly horrifying. It’s nearly impossible to attack the President physically, so people are motivated to attack those he supports and those who support him…

Rhetoric is programming and radicalizing people, it seems, and with violent results. What we thought of liberals in their tolerant, “hug everybody” and advocate for the environment and animals agenda has devolved into straight out violence against anyone they disagree with – and our police and conservative leaders have been some of the first to be attacked.

Among my close friends, we talk the brewing civil war in America.  And how long it will take before it goes “hot”.   We agree in our belief that given how the far left’s violence has heated up, it’s almost inevitable that incidents of armed conflict will happen. It’s not a matter of if, but when. And where.

At this point in one of those conversations, I said, “I wish I knew where…”  To avoid trouble, of course.

They chuckled. “Don’t worry. They’ll come to you.”

And they already have, puncturing my tires at my home a little over a year ago in the dead of night. How long will it take for one or more of them to work up a little more courage and employ some direct action against me and/or my family instead of just property? I try not to worry about that.

If the worst happens, that bite-trained German Shepherd will be the least of their concerns.

But looking at the larger picture, how many besides me will have political violence touch our families in some way? Will your family become involved? Are you prepared for political violence?

      Coming? It’s already here.

      Absolutely correct.

      Remember that Democrat partisans viciously sucker-punched two conservative candidates (one woman, one man) this last election cycle because the candidates were “political enemies”.

      And these two attacks are only the tip of the iceberg.

      The Left keeps begging for a war. It’s time we give them what they want.

      1. avatar Phil Wilson says:

        It may be inevitable that conflict will escalate in some form, but be careful before you give your enemy what they want. And I’m not talking about ANTIFA street thugs, I’m talking about the ones funding and organizing them. They want chaos. As long as it’s the state policing lawlessness, it’s survivable. However, devils often find opportunity in chaos.

        1. avatar Dennis Sumner says:

          Exactly right! Beware the puppet masters, they do indeed want and foment hate and chaos. When the dust settles and the blood has dried, they’ll come out of the shadows and seize the power they so desperately want. History, people!

        2. avatar Miner49er says:

          Get a grip, there are no shadowy organizations funding antifa street thugs.

          Anyone who believes that drivel is a victim of the propaganda. 98% of the Democrats share nothing in common with a spoiled rich kids rioting over animal rights or whatever. Sure, you can use the overpublicized pictures of some nuts breaking windows in order to justify arming yourself but it still isn’t based on reality.

          Sorry, no Bustin protesters, no paychecks from George Soros and no secret meetings in shadowy dungeons as black-clad thugs plot government overthrow. Hilarious.

          You are just being effectively distracted from the billionaires looting the American taxpayer, as the military industrial complex ramps up their wars of profit across the globe.

        3. avatar Joseph Quixote says:

          BS. Who says, you? Just walk the streets of any major city and you will see Antifa types looking for trouble. Soros is well documented to fund anything and everything that goes against traditional life in the United States. Who funds most of the anti gun groups? Soros and Bloomberg, both anti liberty billionaires.

      If you mean the Northwest Detention Facility in Tacoma… I’m a local photojournalist and was covering it that day. What was frightening wasn’t that the loon did it… it’s the handful of protestors/supporters who were there later that day. Off camera, we were told “The cops murdered him, he was a pacifist and wouldn’t hurt anyone, he was only trying to destroy property…”

      He tried to shoot at cops but his rifle malfunctioned, he was throwing firebombs at the facility, he tried to blow up a 500 gallon propane tank next to one of the buildings, he had a previous assault arrest for attacking a cop (at a protest last year, a cop tried to arrest someone, and he tried to pull the cop off the arrestee, getting himself arrested).

      Also, “He was justified in what he did… it’s all Trump’s fault…” and apparently he emailed a manifesto the night before saying he was doing this. many of the folks I talked to off camera most likely received it… and did nothing. The shear amount of self-righteous delusion and lying to themselves was just scary to hear.

      I doubt a “civil war” is coming. But I do NOT doubt that let wing violence is going to increasingly become a thing, and that if Trump wins in 2020, there will be violent attacks that result in people’s deaths.

      1. avatar Phil Wilson says:

        “But I do NOT doubt that let wing violence is going to increasingly become a thing…”

        Absolutely. The only reason the leftists have been relatively peaceful (and they have been relatively peaceful, for leftists) is that they have been getting their way through other means. If their power continues to slip, they will get violent.

      2. avatar Garrison Hall says:

        What you are describing is right out of the Fascist/Nazi playbook. Most people really have no idea that the AntiFa thugs are using tactics that perfectly mirror the way the “Black Shirt” Italian Fascists and “Brown Shirt” Nazis acted in the 1930’s. There’s nothing at all new about any of this. It’s not even surprising that AntiFa has the tacit support “Progressive” local authorities. And—again no surprise here at all—this morning there are news reports of “White Shirt” thugs with tacit government backing attacking demonstrators in Hong Kong. What we’re seeing in all these cases is Fascism, not Communism, nor some form of Democracy. This is Fascism, put and simple.

        1. avatar Hydguy says:

          And yet again, fascism is a left wing ideology. Funny how it keeps coming back to leftist ideology being so violent and destructive, in order to further the power of the State.

      3. avatar Miner49er says:

        “handful of protestors/supporters“

        The keyword is handful. Sure, there’s always a few loons out there who will support these nut jobs, it’s human nature.

        During World War II there were actually American citizens marching in support of Hitler’s concentration camps, look up the American Bund.

        The vast majority of Democrats are reasonable citizens who are not in favor of open borders or total gun bands. A majority of Democrats in the United States own firearms, don’t be fooled by a few high profile weirdos who just want to spark outrage for their personal entertainment.

        1. avatar Hydguy says:

          While I don’t have any hard numbers, I doubt anywhere near ‘the majority’ of democrat supporters are for stricter immigration controls, or even doing what Schumer and Pelosi supported even 4 years ago, as indicated by the hard left turn the party has taken in the last 10 years.
          As for how many own guns, I’d say it’s fewer than 40%, and if the ones that do, the majority obviously don’t care to be ardent supporters of the 2A. The few of the leftists that openly admit to owning the very guns the majority of the left want banned only do so for things like shooting cops, conservative politicians, innocent people, and CBP detention facilities.

      Antics sucks, and has killled zero people. Right wing terrorists and violent men in the US kill more than a dozen people a year.

        Also, I don’t particularly care about national socialists running over international socialists. To me, that’s a win-win.

        You commies need to learn some basic history that doesn’t involve sucking dust out of Stalin’s mummified crotch.

        1. avatar Hydguy says:

          It’s amazing how the media has pushed the narrative that national socialists are right wing when socialism is a left wing ideology, and low IQ morons (everyone on the left) eat it up.
          Nazis, commies, maoists, marxists, socialists, ‘progressives’, ect are all left wing ideologies that put the government above all else.
          There is nothing wrong with nationalism in and of it’s self. If you don’t believe your nation is the best on earth, you should find one that aligns with your views.

          The political right is about “God (Christianity), family, and country”.

          Communists, and fascists are both on the political left. Democrat Republican etc is a false dichotomy. At the end of the day, we all either serve Jesus Christ, or we serve the serpent. Commies and fascists both serve the serpent. The serpent is tricky, and mascarades as an angel of light.

    2. avatar I Haz A Question says:

      No, none of us truly wants this thing to go hot. Many keyboard commandos might think it’ll give us a chance to use the guns we’ve acquired, and the training we’ve gone through, but this isn’t something that will be pretty, or short. Or even end up the way we wish.

      As soon as the spark is lit and a slew of increasingly frequent shootings under the same group/manifesto is apparent, all conservative gun owners will begin carrying, damn the legal CCW consequences. And that’s exactly what LE in blue states like my own CA will anticipate. There will be declarations of martial law, and stop-and-frisk (currently not a generally permissible procedure in CA) will start by regional diktat. Mayors, police chiefs, and Sheriffs all over will suspend the legal niceties in favor of getting ahead of the train curve and keeping the peace.

      Many LEOs and departments will be acutely aware of the raw tensions and will attempt to conduct themselves to avoid escalation with members of their own communities. But all it’ll take is a couple of I-have-a-badge-and-I’m-badass cops overstepping their authority and getting shot for it, to have this mess go ape crazy. Here in L.A. County, we’re a prime “ground zero” for such a spark, and I absolutely guarantee that LAPD knows they’re outnumbered 100-to-1 (if not much more) by not only all the good people who own guns and don’t want to be messed with, but all the gangs who don’t want to be messed with. There would quickly be a pandemic of “Blue Flu”.

      Remember…a polite society is a social construct. It’s simply an unspoken agreement by all within it, nothing more. If that trust erodes enough, it’ll collapse.

      1. avatar Unrepentant Libertarian says:

        Satan wants human kind to kill ourselves off. His followers will keep pushing good peoples buttons until we finally react. This will lead to general mayhem for all. The authorities must do their job of tamping down the violence to stop this from escalating to full blown carnage. If the powers that be do not put an end to the extremists starting mayhem, than all bets are off and Satan will be a very happy being.

      2. avatar SomeDudeThatHasAnAssloadOfGreentip says:

        Speak for yourself. I legitimately pray that this turns hot. These sh*tbag leftist deserve nothing and everything must be taken from them. IDGAF who the leftist is, they are the enemy, and you don’t negotiate with your enemy, you destroy your enemy. . . .

        There is no such thing as a decent leftist. It doesn’t matter how close to center, or how far out they may be. They are the enemy. The time for negotiation is long past, the time for tolerance has come and gone. The time for direct action to get rid of the f*ckbags is here.

        1. avatar I Haz A Question says:

          I think we all share your ire for the Leftist idiots fomenting an escalation, but when I mean this won’t go as we wish, I mean exactly that.

          9/11 gave us the DHS, the TSA, and a more intrusive government. The Black Panthers flaunting their guns led to the first gun control law (thanks, Reagan) in CA’s long march toward massive overreach.

          A hot war would start off in a few locations, but spread wildly to encompass numerous cities. Whatever happens, and over whatever time span (perhaps a couple of months?), you can bet your panties that both Fed and State governments everywhere will be clamoring to do whatever it takes to stop it from happening again. Goodbye, easy-to-purchase $300 ARs.

        That’s assuming that Trump wins reelection. When you take into account how much the democrats are going to cheat in 2020 he may not. I advocate a meeting of governors outside the USA border to split up the country and when the violence really starts have the American people move to where they are most comfortable. Northeast U.S. to the hard core leftists, Wisconsin and Minnesota. The states of Wyoming and Montana go to the Libertarians. The plains states go to the Republicans and so on. There’s no need to kill each other if we recognize we can just move instead of killing each other.

          Besides, state lines aren’t usually the dividing line. Those in upstate NY have more in common with those in rural Georgia than many in Atlanta. Same all over the country.

          @Porridgeweasel,

          I have family there, and was in Milwaukee last year. It’s been moving leftward for a while, and downtown was just as Progressive as any other Lefty metro area. They even have a crosswalk formally updated with rainbow paint (instead of the classic white lines everywhere else) at a certain intersection in the middle of the city to celebrate LGBT. Even L.A. doesn’t have that.

          My chats with some of the locals out in the suburbs where I was staying didn’t reveal any conservative leanings.

          It *is*, after all, only a short drive from Chicago, and many former Illinoisans moved there and have been changing it. Similar to how Californians have been moving to Las Vegas for two decades and have now flipped that state blue.

        6. avatar FrankTX says:

          I Haz A Question,

          There is so much more to Wisconsin than Milwaukee and Madison. Just like New York, the rest of the state is nothing like those 2 liberal junk yards. I have family around the Green Bay area, and they are more like Texans than anything Chi-Madi-Waukee has to offer.

        7. avatar Sam I Am says:

          “There is so much more to Wisconsin than Milwaukee and Madison.”

          Attitudes outside the major population centers are only relevant if the “outsiders” outnumber the city trogs in votes. Not sure how many states have an inverted ratio, where city trogs are of little electoral consequence.

          @ I Haz A Question

          I had a longer reply/rebuttal in the works but Frank covered the jist of it for me.

          Milwaukee is 1 city. Just one. I’d give you Madison as well (Particularly the college). It won’t matter. There is a much, much larger portion of people in the state that are NOT leaning demo/lib/communist in their general beliefs about government and its role,especially the ideology of ANTIFA. They are simply not as vocal as the left, Don’t confuse bemused silence with acquiescence and agreement.

        9. avatar I Haz A Question says:

          @Frank, @Porridge,

          I hope you guys are right. I’m just saying I’ve never experienced it whenever I was there (going back again soon, too).

          I *will* say, though, that spending the Holidays in WI is more pleasantly “Americana” than in CA. People I met were all nice, albeit not outwardly conservative.

          Like others have noted about WI, Minnesota also has a large metro area that is very liberal. The rest of the state is not. I’ve often thought it would be nice if the Murderapolis metro area would secede from the union and become their own little city state. Minnesota may have a chance of turning red then.

      3. avatar SGT Preston says:

        Bro, if Trump did that, there would be no democrats left to run against. The demos has been fomenting violence for a prolonged period, both in their regular guise as “regular people” and as the “antifa” cretins who think they have a right to violench for violence’s sake.

        1. avatar pwrserge says:

          That’s would be the plan. I wonder how long Nancy would keep her seat when 2/3 of her buddies in the house wound up in handcuffs.

  4. avatar Hank says:

    My take: Antifa will likley become an Al Queda like organization to include funding from a mad leftist billionaire. They will use bombings, assassination, arson, and kidnappings, in the same manner as Al Queda used to take power. By using fear and terror to convince the population to bend to their will. Also like Al Queda, they will not see any of their opposition as “innocent.” They will target conservative legislatures, judges, LE, but also what we would consider civilians. They key (to them) of the terrorism they embrace is striking regular people who might be conservative, or “alt right”, or simply not left wing. They’ll think nothing of bombing or shooting up a country music concert let’s say, as they’ll assume all the attendees are “red staters”.

    Now, although Al Queda was made up of what you could say were more dedicated, and even better trained individuals, Antifa will have institutional support from the media and factions in government, that will make them more of threat then Al Queda could ever become.

    1. avatar Dan W. says:

      Soros related “front” organizations. The Left in America has a long history of using organizations with benign sounding names to provide support for hard-left activities. AntiFa has been around for quite awhile now and is obviously well-funded. Following the money trail shouldn’t be all that hard.

    I give it three years if Trump loses, one if he wins.
    I’m sure it’s been pointed out plenty, but we’re passed the point of a Cold War, and are dipping our toes into a “Warm” war, where one side culturally supports the politically motivated guerrilla warfare, while the other is reactionally defensive. I leave it up to you to decide which is which.
    Obviously, that radical side would lose if they managed to irk enough opponents in a sufficient enough manner for them to ignore rule of law and effectively engage them, so those covering for them try desperately to minimize their actions via biased reporting, light or no sentencing, obfuscating evidence against them, etc.
    Of course, that can only last so long.

      You are extremely optimistic, these people are openly bragging about arming themselves while holding the asshole terrorist who tried to kill ICE agents and burn a government facility as a fucking MARTYR. It has already begun, they have pulled down an American flag and replaced it with the flag of a foreign nation at a government facility, they physically attack people in swarms, they destroy random properties, set up illegal roadblocks and all while hiding behind masks showing the world what COWARDS they really are.. IF they go all in it won’t be a face to face confrontation, they will continue their cowardly ways by shooting people in the back from the dark holes they hide in..
      This is not about TRUMP, this would be happening to anyone who beat HILLARY in 2016, this is about their failure to continue the destruction of our Constitutional Republic begun by Obama and to be concluded by Hillary (Obama on steroids) Clinton.. They are angry because her loss/failure has set them back quite possibly as much as two to three decades and a Trump win in 2020 would put them in a hole they might never be able to crawl out of all because they prematurely began to celebrate their perceived victory and showed their faces as they bragged about the “TRANSFORMATION OF AMERICA”, the successes (in their minds) of HOPE and CHANGE and the ultimate overthrow of this Constitutional Republic to be replaced by their version of Democratic Socialism (an oxymoron) which in reality is nothing more than some fascist/communist hybrid that would make Kim Jong Un shudder with delight.. The only way forward now for ANTI-fascists and radical progressives is the elimination of law enforcement and right wing political leadership.. Hell, an attempted assassination of Trump would not surprise me at all especially if the Dems can’t produce a viable candidate to run against him in 2020 and there is certainly no one currently declared who fits THAT description..

        I disagree. So far, local mayors and/or police chiefs have supported Antifa (and their ilk) and ordered the police to allow Antifa to operate.

        I think it will have to be We the People of our nation who will have to end the employment of those police officers.

          When the police and mayors protected antifa violence, it reminded me of the academics praising the early soviet society.

          The problem here is there won’t be uniforms to identify most so my bet is most conservatives will hole up and defend what is theirs. That’s what we did “for the most part” when Clinton and Obama were elected. When George Bush was elected in 2001 and Trump in 2016 the liberals lost their minds and couldn’t function.

    Yoda said, “Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering…”

    The testosterone pumped, gun bearing arm of the Pro-Life right is rightly feared by all. Aggression and violence are the cornerstones of many gun owners and their reputation precedes them. Because the right fears a socialist state it is likely that they will use violence to oppose whatever issues our new president (Kamala) puts forth. These 2A Jethro’s need to be taught a lesson. Perhaps it is time to institute a nation-wide red flag law: If you threaten verbally or physically – regardless if you are wielding a gun or not – a person within 100 feet of yourself, your guns are taken away and your CCW if you have one is terminated. Permanently. The legal process will have to be ironed out but with people like Pelosi, Schumer, and AOC, not to mention the deep pockets of Bloomberg, an efficient system could be put in-place within months.

    Yes, I also fear violence may be coming sooner then later but the socialist movement can use the threat of violence to their advantage. Let the right wing make the first tragic mistake a la North Carolina. Let them draw first. The youth and immigrant movements will be watching. All hell will break loose. and guns will be eliminated – once and for all – from this great nation.

      Since we can charge presidents for campaign rhetoric, let’s see “Punch back twice as hard.” “If they bring a knife, we bring a gun.” – guy arraigned. I’ve heard that “incindiary rhetoric” is bad mmmm-kay?

      Spitting, milkshakes, glitter bombs are alk assault, and battery if tbey connect, with many incidents on camera. I do believe from the video evidence that the hat kid in D C was assaulted.

      I agree that Antifa is not a particularly worrisome threat. What i fear is the Left Wing “Deep State” that intends to tear down the country, first by taking the White House, and then by taking both branches of Congress. They will accomplish this by skewing the vote to assure a Trump defeat. Google is already making plans. https://www.liveleak.com/view?t=CQs49_1547712684 If they succeed,they will attempt to eliminate the Electoral College, and replace it with the supposedly “fairer” one man-one vote system that will assure Democratic Party dominance until the entire country crumbles (aka USSR). Currently, Democrats out number Republicans in raw numbers (but fall far behind in actual territory,as their power bases are centered in the urban centers). In California, the urban centers run the state. In NY, NYC runs the state. In Illinois, Chicago runs the state. The same is true for Massachusetts and most of the north east. Atlanta is trying to crowd out the rest of the state. And so forth and so on. Having political power gives them the police power, and the police will obey. Ony then will the country be ripe for a strident revolt such as is going on in France now–except that the revolutionaries here have guns. For now.

      If Trump loses, the travails will happen sooner than later. If he wins, it cold be another few decades before the barricades are manned. An it may not get hot–fly over country controls the food supply.

      She’s right, at least in major urban centers. Most of what I know about it comes from the police side of things where cops had to adopt tactics on patrol to prevent everyone from being taken out in an ambush. The shootouts with left wing reactionaries were the stuff you would have trouble imagining today. Hundreds of cops in an all-out firefight over blocks of Philadelphia that ended with them dropping bombs from a helicopter on top of a fortified building (the “MOVE” organization shootout). Machine gun emplacements. To say nothing of the string of political assassinations.

      The republic largely survived it although I’m not sure the political atmosphere will allow it to do so again.

      As an aside it’s interesting how police are hated by one side or the other of the political spectrum as decades go by as if it’s a pendulum. In the 70s you had police as the ‘law and order’ force that were hated by liberals only for things to chance in the 90s when the conservative movement and cops had a bit of a falling out with some high-profile interactions (notably Ruby Ridge and the looney tunes at Waco). At that point liberals didn’t embrace the police but chilled out a bit. Then, of course, 9/11 happened and people liked cops almost as much as firefighters. Now it’s a bizarre situation where cops seem to catch a lot of hate on both sides while both sides ALSO demand the police do what they want to the other side. I have no idea where things are going to go from here except to suspect it might look a lot like Chicago in a lot of places soon.

They are already training the police to do such attacks against citizens during a “civil unrest.”

      Look at how the police stand down as ordered in Virginia, California, Washington, Oregon, New York, etc as to allow criminals to attack people who want to protect the Bill of Rights. The cops stand there and allow felonies and treasonous terrorists run the streets. Don’t assume they will be on your side when they are simply order followers that enforce the rule of law. Republicans will not be on your side when you attack government.

    Well yeah. Of course democrats see political violence in the future because they’re the ones causing most of it. So far the only confirmed example of serious politically motivated right-wing violence this decade is some ethno-stater a-hole that hit some people with his car killing one. And contrary the MSM narratives most of that ‘right wing violence’ has been isolated to online threats. Not that this is anyway acceptable. But but as counter left-wing violence has been rampant for the past half decade. Especially after the 2016 election. Multiple riots, arson attacks, and ever a few mass shootings and attempted bombings.

    1. avatar User1 says:

    Seems Democrats are smarter then Republicans because they actually know first comes words than comes violence. You would think Republicans would notice that speech comes before guns in the Bill of Rights.

    You can talk things out, walk away, give up or fight. Sometimes the options are limited.

    Disappointingly, white millennial and gen Z males want to fight with their brothers and sisters. They are thinking about killing them in the future. Once that idea is in your mind you could actually act on it; you are already half way there.

    I keep hearing from white males that they foresee a civil war, that they will kill every lefty and win a flawless victory. Some of those males also want to send back all the non whites and ban non whites from the U.S. They have disdain for diverse/integrated societies. These people think their way of life is the best way and should be the only way to live. If you don’t like it you can leave or else.

    In the Bible it says there will be a race war and other events that will lead to even worse things. Some crazy religious people are actually trying to make that a reality right now. From the Christchurch gunman to talking heads like Alex Jones. A lot of Trump’s administration (who are also anti 2A) want these conflicts to happen, they want WWIII to start after they attack Iran. They talk about it regularly. They say Trump was sent by God to bring forth the rapture. Even black activists (some who pretend to be black when both their parents are white) on “black Twitter” try to spark race conflicts between white and black to make sure there is no unity only conflict and violence.

    There are FBI agents on the Chans trying to get young males to commit attacks. They lurk and post to radicalize teens and make groups look bad.

    Unfortunately, the current Republican party and modern Christians are on board with bringing down America in exchange for the return of Jesus or crushing commies with an iron fist. Texas is full of these types of people, their government and police are being designed around it. This is why a lot of them worship Trump, defend everything he does even when it goes against their proclaimed principles and ignore all the bad he has done.

    The left see this and want Trump out by any means necessary. The general left doesn’t like religion and they have romantic fantasies of communism. When the left calls people out the right immediately labels them as anti semites or anti America, then the Republicans start chanting in rage

    The rest of us in the middle just want to keep America free and retain our liberties. Yet we have two major tribes fighting for tribal supremacy and government domination. I don’t want to be “raptured” or enslaved.

        Japan is not just a nation state but also an ethnicity known as Japanese. Most nations have been that way until recently. Italians are not just people born in Italy or given citizenship there…

        Which is why its very weird to refer to Europeans whom live in the U.S. as Americans or to call “Indian” people Mexicans or to think Mexican is a race/ethnicity. Americans don’t really think of Mexicans/Latinos as being white/European. Heck, I have seen straight up 90%+ white people say they are Mexican not European as if being Mexican is a race or that somehow in a couple of generations they have genetically evolved from being Europeans into North Americans.

      User 1, you seem to have a reading comprehension problem with the bible. Satan put his minions at both ends of the political and religious spectrums to attack those who are not as extreme. The Bible says nothing about race – that is the realm of the political extremists. (Far more from the left than the right.) Right now, Satan has far more followers that follow the leftist viewpoint vocally, while those followers on the extreme right are fewer and more subdued. He will use each to push normal people into the other camp by extreme events and to attack those who are not interested in joining either extremist group.

      Relax man. There would have to be a perfect storm of events for an actual civil war to take place. Assassinations, mass killings (during protests), a coup attempt or two, a city wide blackout (oh wait). But you get the picture. I’m not sayin there won’t be skirmishes and some deaths in the next couple of years but nothing so bad as to start a war. Even a modern version of Kent State wouldn’t be enough to do it.

Saying you are going to fight a war and fighting are do very different things. Killing is easy to talk about especially when you’ve never done it. They think they are tough because they gang up on some defenseless reporter or college student. I can guarantee when the REAL SHTF and people start bleeding and dying their bravado will die as fast as their comrades. So if they want a Fight. I say bring it on.

      Actually Antifa doesn’t think the cops are on their side and they call for them to be abolished (and ironically they support gun control too). Most young Democrats hate the police state. The old hippies are anti police. BLM people are anti police. The typical activist Democrat doesn’t believe the police are no their side. Of course they will use the police as useful idiots if they will do their bidding. Typically they think the police are the tools of the right wing and white America.

      The Democrats that worship the police are the soccer mom’s who hate guns or the racist white person that doesn’t want some black teens walking around their community/home. The general state dependent scared of everything type of Democrat.

      It’s usually the Republicans that think the police are on their side. When use of force occurs by police the Democrats are likely to say the police did something wrong regardless of the truth, the Republicans are on the other side thinking the cops are always doing the right thing and it’s the suspects fault.

      Democrats only “respect” the police when they follow Democrat’s demands. Republicans respect the police at all times and follow the police’s demands.

      The remaining hard core communist/anarchists/intersectional/fruitloops will go underground and probably form some sort of SDS/SLA/Weather Underground/ELF type groups and resort to arson, bombings and crime to support “the cause”.

    Trump has already strongly hinted he may never step down from the Presidency unless the Military takes him out feet first. His fanatical storm trooper supporters want a dictatorship and an American 3rd Reich with no freedom of speech and a Christian Protestant Caliphate. His jack booted followers hate everyone who is not a WASP and everyone who is not Protestant. The current state of political affairs in the U.S. mimics Nazi Germany and is in lock step with Hitler’s book Mein Kampf which Trump keeps by his beside and was verified by his own wife.

    Yes not just Democrats but Independents too are becoming increasingly worried about the rise in hate groups since Herr Drumpf lied his way into power. Herr Drumpfs racist political campaigns mimic that of Adolf Hitler and his attacks on the Jews and other minorities. Trump like Hitler has also strongly demonized all opposing political opponents and parties often promoting and suggesting extreme violence and claiming all that oppose him are unpatriotic even when he himself was a draft dodgers along with his chief War Monger John Bolton also a draft dodger. Bolton saved his own skin by avoiding the war in Vietnam but has no qualms about sending thousands to die in the new American Wars of rape, pillage and conquest in the 21st Century. Both men are hypocrites and charlatans.

    Hopefully Mueller may inadvertently foster a “Nixon Moment” in his upcoming testimony before Congress where hopefully the American People will see that both Herr Drumpf (by working closely with the Russians) and Mitch McConnell (by refusing to Russian proof the voting machines) will both go down in political flames in the 2020 elections.

    America stands at its most critical time in history with Democracy hanging precariously in the balance.

          Miner49er I love it when a non believer tries to understand scripture God’s word says it is foolishness to those who are perishing if you die in this state of unbelief your very words will haunt you forever

          Wow.. miner got so much wrong it’s actually humorous.

        3. avatar Miner49er says:

          Buddy, what are the errors in my post?

          Eating Sim Bolick foolish and drinking symbolic blood is not ritual cannibalism?

          And what prophet in the Old Testament spoke of the Trinity?

          And I’ll bet you think that the serpent in the garden was Satan as well, don’t you? Even though the Bible says the serpent was the lowest beast of the field and there’s no mention of the serpent being a fallen angel. That’s just more propaganda.

        4. avatar Hydguy says:

          miner, Jesus never said he was God. He only stated he was the Son.
          It’s funny when idiots like you, who have no working knowledge of the Bible try to act like they know shit, but it’s so easy to see that you don’t know shit about anything, much less the Bible.
          Run along before you make yourself look even more stupid.

      See kids vlad is a good example of why you should never:
      1. Drop acid
      2. Watch the Hand Maiden’s Tale.
      3. And defiantly don’t do 1. and 2. together.

      1. avatar Hydguy says:

        Nothing wrong with dropping acid. Did it more than once in my youth, and I’m nothing like that idiot Miner.
        But I can’t say the same about watching The Hand Maiden’s Tale, as I have no experience with that.

    We won’t need to rely on shootingthebull410 reviews of ammo to determine effectiveness. Armed leftists open themselves to armed response. This isn’t a video game where you respawn and play again. We are quickly moving toward a place where radicxal lefties dont care about laws and dont fear police. Letting antifa do whatever they want has emboldened them. When they meet serious determined people who also don’t give a fuck Charlottesville will be mild in comparison . I sure hope it doesn’t happen but I’m prepared to defend myself and family from these masked mudderfukahs. The ms13 gangs are dangerous and have no qualms about killing but these spoiled brats don’t have the balls to do it. As soon As they raise it up they are done for.

    Of course 91 percent of Democrats expect political violence. They’re about to be the people that start said violence. It’s their history and their habit.

  54. avatar Justin says:

    I see alot of folks are underestimating the enemy. Saying they wont be able to shoot or when they see their buddy shot they will run and hide, that may not be what will happen. Likely it will just solidify their resolve to fight and cause them to evolve into even worse shit. In military ive seen the skinny kid that no one thinks would do well have bigger nuts than the neckbeard who thinks hes a tactical god when under fire. When the rubber meets the road i think we will all be suprised by how people we think are one way or another will react. Even the nicest animal when backed into a corner and threatened can be a vicious beast in an instant.

    1. avatar dprato says:

      That’s precisely why the Left should not misjudge those of us on the Right and Center who are law abiding and don’t go out looking for trouble. That certainly does not mean that if threatened or attacked we will not defend ourselves because that is simply not true. I am a law abiding gun owner and do not go looking for trouble just because someone disagrees with my beliefs or politics. However, it would be a grave mistake on anyone’s part to physically threaten or attack me as they will be extremely surprised at the full on reaction they will receive. I know many people who feel as I do who are fed up with all the Leftist anti-American rhetoric and it would be a huge mistake on their part to think because we do not behave as they do we will sit back and let them walk over us. Not likely.

    Between the armchair commandos, the conspiracy theorists, and those who have no problem saying they actually want to go out and shoot someone, this place is getting weird.

    1. avatar Ralph says:

      Getting?

    2. avatar Hank says:

      This place has kinda always been like that, more or less. You should go back and read the slug fests on here from 2013, during both the height of the AWB and the bundy ranch stand off. Them times were pretty interesting. Not to say they’re not interesting now.

  57. avatar LL says:

    Do the owners of this site ever look at posters to determine which are our enemies trying to hurt America? Why provide a platform for them? Why write stupid inflammatory articles like this one for that matter?

    Russia has stated goals of inflaming sectoral and race hatred to cause internal strife.

    Lots of posters here do that, in increasingly extreme ways. Are they americans?

    1. avatar R says:

      The “russians” aren’t the problem. The Left and their violent pets are the problem. They hate America and the very people who created this country.

  58. avatar BusyBeef says:

    Who do you think is coming to confiscate your guns?
    The politicians who wrote the laws?

  59. avatar ATTAGReader says:

    I am surprised that the current heat wave has not spiraled into urban rioting. If (hopefully when) Trump wins a second term, I expect there will be urban riots like in the ‘60’s. National Guard will be called up by governors because mayors of the big cities will follow the Baltimore model and let the riots go unchecked. Fortunately we live in a smaller community where the riot-prone population would be put down with prejudice, most likely by the local police but if needed by the rest of the local community. Lots of gun stores here and a strong anti-crime stance from the politicians. No registration. Open carry is legal. All is good.

  60. avatar Bierce Ambrose says:

    9% of Democrats willfully blind to political violence already taking place?

    Pretty sure that’s not a good look.

    I love the fact that the Republican number of 61% is glossed over. THAT IS A HUGE NUMBER too! I love the fact that the author says him and his friends talk about the “brewing civil war” The civil war is here and it isn’t being fought “hot” it is being fought “cold” with 1s and 0s. With information. We are literally David going up against goliath with the advantage they have on us with Silcone Valley and the MSM. They know they lose the hot war with us. They are attempting to win the war via information.

  63. avatar Neil R Glenn says:

    One thing most gun-grabbing liberals, and those who fund antifa, etc, fail to realize, is that most of the conservatives whom they wish to control, DO possess most of the arms, which they are DEFINITELY unwilling to surrender. Plus, they outnumber the cops, should liberals believe THESE will protect them. And NOT those rabble-rousers! When push comes to shove, the conservatives WILL use them to defend self, property, and friends!! The rabble, OTOH, have sticks stones, ice-cream and eggs! Never bring a knife, only, to a gunfight!

    1. avatar burley says:

      I tend to agree, but: the issue with us conservatives is that we are rugged individualists. If we don’t start practicing TOGETHER, we will be picked off as individuals.

    2. avatar balais says:

      You bring up a good point (and ill counterpoint by arguing that there is nothing liberal about these gun grabbers and sjws, they’re authoritarian leftists)

      Many on the ‘other/opposite side’ of antifa understand violence quite well. Many are OIF/OEF vets, law enforcement, etc, who have a very familiar grasp of what organized violence is.

      They’re simply barking up the wrong tree and will regret initiating violence

  64. avatar Bob says:

    The modern left has rejected the concept of the sovereign individual, which is the very basis of western society. Identity politics dictates their entire worldview, which is why they no longer support an individual right to free speech (“black faces must have black voices”). I fear that there is no way to reconcile with them.

    1. avatar Phil Wilson says:

      Your are correct. The ideologies of Americans and Progressives are diametrically opposed. I still hope that the progs have already seen their high water mark (for the next few decades at least).

  65. avatar dprato says:

    I consider myself a law abiding responsible gun owner and I am strictly a self defense type person. I will never go out to start anything but I will also defend myself and my family to the death. I know many folks like myself who are not looking for trouble but will not run away from it if it comes our way. Let the Left be warned. You start it and we will destroy you with a vengeance you can’t even imagine. There are millions of us who have sat quietly and listened to your childish BS. You start something violent and we will not be like the pussy footing cops are today who let you do whatever you want. We will utterly and completely destroy you.

  66. avatar burley says:

    It means that you need to keep your aim sharp, your arms clean, your mags full and all close to hand. Never leave home without it…
