The more President Donald Trump wins, the crazier the rhetoric from the left. Maxine Waters, the face of today’s Democrat party, claims God is on the left’s side in encouraging mob action against Trump administration members. Others post missives not-so-subtly encouraging political violence, including bombings against Trump supporters.

Only a fool would ignore such warnings. Tool up. Your life may depend upon it.

Americans have watched the radical left increasingly turn to uncivilized behavior, and even physical force, to overthrow the existing political order here in the United States. This past week, the rhetoric has heated up still further. Mad Maxine relishes speaking before the more radical wing of the Democrat party. Days ago, she encouraged direct action against Trump’s people.

Normalized Mob Violence Yet Another Reason To Carry

“If you think we’re rallying now, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet. Already, you have members of your Cabinet that are being booed out of restaurants who have protesters taking up at their house, who say, ‘No peace, no sleep. No peace, no sleep.’ God is on OUR side! On the side of the children. On the side of what’s right. On the side of what’s honorable. And so, let’s stay the course. Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up and if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

This came on the heels of repeated incidents of mob action by Democrats unhappy with the current political landscape. Intolerant leftists kicked Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her family out of the tiny Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia and then followed them across the street, continuing to cause a scene.  At about the same time, another mob harassed DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen until she left a Washington, DC-area restaurant.

Meanwhile, another senior DHS official found the burned carcass of an animal on his doorstep. Moreover, Florida’s Attorney General Pam Bondi faced an angry mob when she and her boyfriend emerged from a movie. And another mob aggressively got in the face of a legal American immigrant – Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao – as she left a dinner in D.C.

We have already seen how unhinged members of the radical left will turn to physical violence when they can’t win in a debate…or an election. Recall the violence at the Presidential inauguration.

And then there’s politically-motivated gun violence. James Hodgkinson, from my state of Illinois, tried to assassinate a group of Republican House members last year during a baseball practice.

One of our Guns Save Life members approached me after the incident and said they had met Hodgkinson at a home inspectors conference. That GSL member described Hodgkinson, in plain English, as a “very opinionated, hot-tempered strange bird.” Indeed, he had domestic violence tendencies at home, too. And even the FBI reported on Hodgkinson’s anger management issues.

Unfortunately, some on the far left are calling for more violent acts just like Hodgkinson’s. Take this fiery piece written by an ex-Gawker scribe at the hard-left publication Splinter.

This Is Just the Beginning

Do you think that being asked to leave a restaurant, or having your meal interrupted, or being called by the public is bad? My fascism-enabling friends, this is only the beginning. …

Not being able to go to restaurants and attend parties and be celebrated is just the minimum baseline here. These people, who are pushing America merrily down the road to fascism and white nationalism, are delusional if they do not think that the backlash is going to get much worse. Wait until the recession comes. Wait until Trump starts a war. Wait until the racism this administration is stoking begins to explode into violence more frequently. Read a [bleep]ing history book. Read a recent history book. The U.S. had thousands of domestic bombings per year in the early 1970s. This is what happens when citizens decide en masse that their political system is corrupt, racist, and unresponsive. The people out of power have only just begun to flex their dissatisfaction. The day will come, sooner that you all think, when Trump administration officials will look back fondly on the time when all they had to worry about was getting hollered at at a Mexican restaurant. When you aggressively [bleep] with people’s lives, you should not be surprised when they decide to [bleep] with yours. …

This is all going to get more extreme. And it should. We are living in extreme times. The harm that is being done to all of us by the people in the American government is extreme.

Given that sort of rhetoric and encouragement, there exists a high likelihood that more of Hodgkinson’s ilk will resort to violence. After all, living in their cocoon, they believe that the majority of America supports their radical beliefs and that justifies their use of physical force. Even for those not (yet) turning to guns, or bombs, other far-left Democrat mobs will grow more emboldened by the Maxine Waters and Hamilton Nolans of the left-wing echo chamber.

Sooner or later, this mob will expand their potential targets to anyone perceived as a possible Trump supporter. They may target specific people like Pam Bondi and her boyfriend, or they may select targets of opportunity. Either way, guess what: no matter your politics, if you’re a gun owner, you are their perceived enemy.

We teach people not to ignore an articulated threat by a potential attacker. If someone angry at you says, “I’m going to kill you,” you should listen. As they say, the FBI would call that a “clue.” You should take credible threats seriously and act accordingly to defend yourself.

The gun-hating left is telling you what they intend to do. With this in mind, the prudent people will take precautions for their own self-defense. If you have a carry license, or live in a constitutional carry state, make sure you carry a gun. If you have not yet acquired your CCW, do so right away.

Don’t forfeit your life because you left your safety rescue tool at home.

  1. So… anybody else want to tell me that the DNC is not a terrorist organization that needs to be proscribed and purged?

      • 10-term incumbent…” That guy needed to go. He was at least 7 terms overdue.

        It may actually be a blessing that he was pushed out by a literal communist. Makes it very clear to everyone what kind of choice they’re making when they vote Democrat.

        • That’s the more beautiful part of this story… the “blue wave” is starting to look more and more like it’s property of the tidybowl man.

    • You mean to tell me that the Commiecrat’s aren’t the warm and fuzzy inclusionists they claim to be.

      • At one time they kind of were, but the hard-line Marxists are now purging the party of anyone remotely reasonable. “Bleeding heart” liberal is being supplanted by “blood-soaked” leftist.

        The DNC sucks and always has, but our system relies on a strong and valid counterpoint to the party in power. The DNC coming totally off the rails is a very, very bad thing, even if they don’t manage to seize power in the process (which would be an apocalyptic thing).

        I really hope we see the RNC continue it’s split into libertarian and business-oriented interests; that’s the natural set of competing interests for a nation that’s focused on success and not trying to murder itself (i.e. the US until the abolition or progressive movements started controlling parties). They can split into two formally divided parties right around the time the DNC is mopped up for good.

        • Without a valid opposition party (Democrats) pushing for gun control, the Republicans won’t need to embrace pro-2A platforms. The Republicans will rapidly turn back in to the party of “common sense gun laws” re: Ronald “FOPA 86′” Reagan, George “Import Ban” Bush, and James “Brady Bill”.

        • Yes, indeed! We are headed for a disaster of biblical proportions. . . Old Testament, real wrath of God type stuff! Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling! Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes…The dead rising from the grave! Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria!

  2. Maybe it would be better if the civil war came quickly – old white men may get killed and they would take down the troublemakers. If they wait until the registered guns get taken away, they might just have a chance.

    • Their side does not want a piece of our side. They simply want to instigate violence and have us act out, so they can record it and put it on YouTube. Much like the kid who hits his sibling, then runs behind his mother.

      • I still think we should bring it. Let the angry mobs come, I’ve got plenty of ammo and I’ll save the last bullet for myself.

  3. Justice Kennedy just announced his retirement effective July 31st. Let’s get a solid Constitutionalist in place of a swing this go around!

  4. Hey Maxine — Show us what you look like without the muskrat glued on your head.

    I bet you look like Woody Strode or Scatman Carothers.

    • Whatever you can afford. Don’t obsess.
      I will say out and about fmj may increase your chances of a through and through hitting an unintended target. Cheap name brand jhp can be bought bulk.

      Or go full sheepdogthreeperpiehitter and nothing but g2rip will do.

    • One that reliably goes bang when you pull the trigger. Other then that you shouldn’t be to picky. If everything does go to shut on you that last thing you will be thinking about is “did I pick the right ammo”.

      • Don’t forget one that feeds and cycles reliably. Don’t go messing with steel-cased anything, or any slavshit except for Prvi and Sellier & Bellot.

      • Whether a particular caliber/bullet design, etc. is “good enuf” is a question that can usually only be answered by the guy who just got shot. Many times he will tell you; “No it ain’t, and now I’m gonna rip your head off.” If you don’t get an answer, you can normally assume it was good enuf, but just to be safe you should plant a couple more in case he’s faking it.

    • In a SHTF scenario, the best ammo is what you have on hand. At that point, I think we’ll be beyond worrying about overpenetration. In fact, it might become a feature instead of a bug, IYKWIM…

    • For 9x19mm, I prefer 124 grain Federal Law Enforcement HST. It runs around $0.40/round online. Good expansion and penetration.

    • Don’t limit yourself to a handgun. That’s what you use to fight your way to a rifle or shotgun, and I don’t mean some small game/bird gun.

      • I’m a big fan of belt fed semi-autos. That way, you never have to worry about reloading. The MCR I just got is beautiful.

        • Actually strych it doesn’t. You can still only link up 10 rounds or 30 rounds or whatever, if the state doesn’t outright ban belt-fed guns.

        • You mean the things that do less than nothing against their intended target? Still don’t know who at NERV thought it was a good idea to give Raytheon a weapons contact for a giant robot. Now positron rifles… those I can dig.

    • I use same weight in defensive ammo as fmj target rounds. So I use 230 gr Federal HST in my 45, and Hornady Critical Defense 115 gr FTX in my 9mm.

      Whatever ammo you select be sure and try it at the range for that particular gun. Guns can be finicky eaters. I’ve had misfeeds on different types of ammo. An annoyance at the range, a disaster in an emergency.

  5. I hope the old hands have finally cottoned on that it’s not good news when this flavor of leftist decides to tool up. We’re not talking about lifelong Democrat voters who are discovering a love of sport shooting; we’re talking about paranoid psychopaths whose idea of “fighting evil” is opening fire on people who use the wrong pronouns or wear the wrong hat in public.

    • They already have groups with guns. Some of those groups claim they are training to take on the enemy. They love the kalashnikov and SKS.

      There are way more people like them than people like to think. California is pumping them out in mass via their school system, it’s the most populated state and they are importing Mexican socialists to make their direct democracy stronger.

    • Can’t she get arrested and charged with “incitement to commit violence” or something similar? Even the first amendment has limits and this really crosses the line.

      • That doesn’t apply to high profile people. You or I could be visited by the FBI, but if you have power, you’re immune.

  6. “When you aggressively [bleep] with people’s lives, you should not be surprised when they decide to [bleep] with yours.”

    Maybe somebody should tell Hamilton Nolan that this goes both ways.

    He’d better hope to hell that people like me don’t decide it’s time to start taking care of people like him. There’s more of me & mine than there are of him & his.

    • I remember that..sick scum attacked him for being white..he should have run their blakasses over. Folks, time to pack hi capacity now in case you need em. I have and feel that any situation will be resolved quickly.

  7. If you legally carry a gun and won’t allow illegal search or seizure cops tend to arrest you for “disorderly conduct.” Will cops arrest mobs of harassing coercers for disorderly conduct? What cops won’t do will show which side they are on.

    • To CZJay,

      Yup. LE needs to be stepping up before someone gets hurt or killed. This will be real interesting.

      Mad Maxie is preaching to others to violate the law. Stalking, harassing, accosting, unlawful assembly, inciting, etc.

      It’s going to get ugly.

    • LE has arrested plenty of antifa nutcases. Often when they won’t remove their little masks at public protests. The irony being that laws against such masks were put in place to deal with the KKK.

      Actually, maybe it’s not ironic.

  8. I love the irony here. Yeah, the trump and his administration and supporters are quite often human garbage fires with authoritarian/totalitarian leanings. So what’s the response from “the opposition? To be a bunch of human trash fires with authoritarian/totalitarian leanings.

    No one really likes individual liberty, everyone’s a tribalistic fearful monkey, everyone is just awful. Fuck it. I’m going to just pound beers and watch the show.

    • Tell us more about the present administration’s “human garbage fires with authoritarian/totalitarian leanings”.

      I’m intrigued.

    • Care to name some of those authoritarians in the Trump admin.? Trump’s a market-capitalist and could care less about the typical kind of petty antics that authoritarians tend to favor. The same can be said for the people who work for him. Liberal Progressives are authoritarians. In the 20’s and 30’s progressives were much enamored with Italian Fascism. They’re not much different now.

  9. The places individuals need to carry a gun to protect themselves and their family don’t allow it.

    In California, if you’re not a Communist, how will you get yourself a permission slip to carry your gun to protect yourself from the mobs that will hunt you down for not being in their tribe? People who hate America like to say, “by any means necessary” and “punch a Nazi,” yet I don’t think that will be enough to get you a permission slip.

    • If I were forced to live in CA, I would establish my “official” residence in one of the locations where getting a permission slip is possible. Fortunately for me, I can envision no circumstances where I would be forced into CA.

        • A permission slip from one county is good in all other counties in the State of California, and don’t let anyone suggest to you otherwise. It is a STATE CCW, it just happens to be issued by your local sheriff. However, it is possible that you could be stopped by a cop in a “no issue” jurisdiction that has never seen one….

          And by the way, most of the 58 counties in the State are “shall issue.”

    • There are many areas of CA where you can easily obtain your illegal permission slip to exercise your constitutionally protected right. I have 1, as does most of my family. But the mobs won’t come out here…. they know better 😉

      • 👌 Good for you guys. Keep your heads on a swivel. Infestations are difficult to contain especially long term. Be safe, brothers and sisters.

    • Mississippi. Look it up. It’s one of the States in which you can carry concealed without a permit, among other niceties. CA, NJ, NY, etc. hate us, but luckily they can’t find us. 🙂

  10. To heck with condoms, next time I wanna practice birth control, I’ll remember that photo of Maxine…

  11. Yep carry EVERYWHERE. Getting a new gun tomorrow. Mad Maxine will be the 1st casualty in the coming conflict…😄

  12. They use Nazi tactics. They use Nazi rhetoric. Yet, they accuse their opponents of being Nazis. Projection? Distraction?

    Hitler’s antisemitism wasn’t just “Jews! Get ’em!” It was about how a very small percentage of the population held most of the nation’s wealth. Hitler rose to power promising jobs with fair wages, health care for everyone, guarantees of advanced education. His followers used organized violence to shut down opponents’ political rallies and silence undesirable speakers. Oh, by the way, all of that didn’t really pick up until after his first major electoral loss.

    Note to Maxine: one of my relatives has a shoe box full of belt buckles proudly declaring “Gott mit uns” above a swastika-clutching eagle. You really want to go down that route?

  13. To the owners and Editors

    have you ever looked to see, or asked for help to see, how many of your posters calling for civil war and the end of America are actually americans?

    You are surely aware that Russia has been proven to use sock puppets to inflame hatred and violence on our websites.

    Your site here seems to be a hotbed of such talk. How sure are you that you are clean? Are you happy to spread propaganda for a hostile foreign nation bent on weakening our country?

    • Are you talking about the article’s cited comments by a sitting congresswoman? Because that’s where I’m seeing calls to violence and incitement of a second civil war, not in the comments. Are you sure YOU aren’t a Russian bot?

      • well knightofbob you must not be paying much attention. The congresswoman suggested people tell politicians their policies are not wrong and that they (in the case of Ms sanders, a person who lies from our white house in front of our flag every day) are not welcome.

        That is what we call freedom of speech in America.

        The comment section does indeed talk about civil war, not sure how you missed it. Our President, unlike Congresswoman Waters, has also directly advocated violence against fellow americans. You probably missed that too.

        Anyway my comment was perhaps about you but not directed towards you. Have a good day.

        • She calls for mobs to form in order to harass, stalk and intimidate people (that don’t have the same politics as them) everywhere they go.

          Going to people’s property to harass them (and their family) isn’t freedom of speech. Stalking is not freedom of speech. Forming rage filled mobs to intimidate people into breaking U.S. law is not freedom of speech. It’s coercion tactics of political extremists who want the individual to fear the collective over-thrower’s might to the point they will follow orders. For them facts are irrelevant, effective social coercion is all that matters.

          It’s like a gang member confronting you with, “Where you from? You in the wrong neighborhood, fool! This our street. You better leave before you get hurt. If you ever come back around here we’re going kill your ass.”

        • I’m sorry, I must have missed it. Where exactly has Trump called for violence against fellow Americans? Keep in mind, people who are here illegally are not Americans. They are invaders. Also, don’t bring up anything about anti-muslim sentiments. Muslims bring that sort of hatred on themselves.

          Mad Maxine needs to be removed from office. She’s clearly trying, and succeeding, in stirring up hatred and dividing our country far more than any silly Russian bot ever could.

        • Maxine Waters is on the record advocating harassment and violence against political enemies. Not sure how you missed it. The behavior she is encouraging is both not protected by the first amendment, but also cut and paste SA tactics, not sure how you missed it.

          I am vocally opposed to any kind of civil war, not sure how you missed it. Maxine Waters and many in her party have called for violent revolution against their fellow Americans, not sure how you missed it.

          I’m a fucking veteran with years of government service as a civilian who cares deeply about his country, not sure how you missed it. Donald Trump has said many objectionable things. Most were when he was a registered Democrat. Not sure how you missed it.

        • Whoops, forgot to mention you’re a Nazi. Or a Russian. Which are somehow the same thing?

    • I don’t consider purging communists to be “weakening our country”. From my personal family experience, getting rid of commies is a great way to make your country stronger. Oh, and one of you commie cucks tried to dox me a few months back, so yeah, I’m an American IN America.

    • II, It’s a bit warm here in Texas. I understand St. Petersburg is a more pleasant place in summer.

  14. Makes me glad I carry a gun everywhere. And that I moved to Idaho last year. I see more gun bumper stickers in a week here than I did in 13 years in Oregon.

  15. What she did is absolutely unacceptable. And if someone gets hurt or killed she should be held responsible for condoning it.

  16. Wait… Conservatives and right-leaners are the Facists? Let’s take a look here…

    Fascism:
    Fascism is a form of radical authoritarian nationalism, characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition and control of industry and commerce, which came to prominence in early 20th-century Europe.

    Forcible suppression of the opposition? That’s a liberal tactic. Control of industry and commerce? With all of the regulations and controls that the Democrats place on everything, yeah that one’s theirs too. And God knows they sure act like dictators when in power… “I have a pen and a phone!” Constitution and Legislative Branch making the laws be damned!

    Yeah, I think they have that backwards.

  17. I will never go looking for trouble and sure as hell won’t harrass someone I disagree with in public. But if they ever come to where I live looking for a fight, (very unlikely) it will be short lived and they will be dumped in the swamp on the back of the property. Gators need to eat same as the worms.

    • You are right on the money, JD!!! I have been around firearms all my life and have never hurt anyone!! Neither have any of my friends or family…but backed in a corner, facing a grave threat to my home, myself or my family I will have absolutely NO PROBLEM defending any of it, with deadly force if necessary. I have never been squeamish about the use of guns, nor am I afraid to use one if forced to do so. Anyone physically assaulting me or my family will get exactly what they deserve…since I don’t live close to a swamp area, a dirt nap will have to suffice!!

  18. Personally, I do not believe that the people who are hounding Sarah Sanders and others in the Trump administration are “protesters”. The people who are showing up are more likely paid henchmen. The Left is controlled by some people with big money behind them. They are organizing rallies and such on mass scales, not with true protesters, but with people who are paid and bused in.

    I do believe in the right to assemble, but I do not believe in having paid perpetrators assemble to block my right to assemble.

  19. Who needs a “high-capacity magazine?”

    When you guarantee the mob coming at me will be 5 or less, we can talk about limiting my mag size to five.

    BTW, passing a mob law isn’t a guarantee, any more than “banning” guns keeps guns away from BGs. So, show me how you’re gonna make sure that never happens, and we can talk. Or we can talk about an alternative. You want to limit my mags to 5, you’ll make me whole after anything done to me by a group of 5 or more.

  20. If carrying a pistol is deemed appropriate, don’t forget an extra magazine or two. I much prefer to live peacefully, now and then sending a few rounds in the direction of paper plates. That said, as I do not mess with other people, they are politely advised to leave me in peace too. This is a message that unfortunately these days needs to be posted.
