Over the past few days I’ve gotten several emails concerning and have seen on a few sites news about an upcoming civil war that antifa is going to start on 4 November. Their supposed plan is to start shooting cops and other first responders and then move on to plain old regular citizens like you and me that don’t bow down to them – nazis in their vernacular.
I haven’t posted anything about it because it all refers to an “official antifa site” that I can’t seem to find. Admittedly, I haven’t looked very hard because that would entail wading through tons of garbage and to be honest with you, that’s not a way I prefer to spend my spare time.
It’s also not something I’m very concerned about. Why?
For several reasons that they don’t seem to get and the #1 reason is regardless of the press that they get, they are a very small minority in this country. They get the press and attention because they start trouble and that’s news. If you’re going by what the mainstream media has to say, about half the country are antifa members, but that’s just not the case. Ask yourself this: How many antifa members do you personally know? If you were to believe the MSM, that number should be about half your acquaintances.
True, we all know liberals and we all have liberals in our extended if not immediate families. But just because they are liberals does not mean they are antifa. Far from it, if you want to know the truth. Matter of fact, if you’ll go back a few weeks and check out various MSM articles, you’ll see that even the MSM is starting to realize that antifa are nothing but a bunch of spoiled little troublemakers. Now, when you consider that the MSM is the spokesperson for liberal politics, what’s that tell you?
Moving right along, these reports about the upcoming festivities all say that antifa are arming and training themselves. Big deal – the Right has been arming themselves since 2008 when Obama was elected. In fact, that’s been going on sporadically for at least 35 years that I know of – every time it looks like the Left is going to take control, gun and ammo sales have boomed. Remember the Great Ammo Shortages of 2008 and 2012? Those weren’t because gun and ammo manufacturers quit making their products, it was because that stuff was flying off the shelves faster than it could be restocked. It was selling out.
I don’t know the numbers, not even a ballpark figure, but I don’t think I’m exaggerating when I say that over the past 9 years alone, millions of AR-15s have been sold in the US. That’s completed rifles, not the firearms that enthusiasts like you and me have built using 80% lowers and parts kits. Out of those millions of rifles sold, I’ll take a Scientific Wild Ass Guess and say that 99.9% of them were sold to Right Wing gun owners.
Ammo: I don’t know a single AR owner that only has one box of ammo. Not one. Everybody I know that owns an AR is sitting on hundreds if not thousands of rounds of ammo. I don’t know a single AR owner that has only one magazine for his rifle. Again, not one. Everybody I know has at least a half dozen if not more. Hell, I’ve got 14 loaded magazines myself and another half dozen empty ones laying around.
They’re talking about starting their little war by shooting cops and first responders. Okaaay… let’s see how that works out for them. First off, other than the inner cities, cops are largely looked upon by the general public as their protectors. Those of you that have been reading my writings for any period of time know that I spent a few years of my life living on the wrong side of the law and you’ve heard me say that I generally prefer to handle my own problems without getting the cops involved. That being said, I’ve also stated that I feel a lot better knowing that there’s a cop eating a donut just a few blocks from where my elderly mother is sleeping alone at night. The simple fact of the matter is, there’s a lot of people that depend on their local PD or Sheriff’s Office for their safety and well being. The general public is not going to put up with people shooting at their protectors.
Other first responders? Who are they kidding? If they start shooting at firemen and paramedics, they’re going to open up a can of worms like they ain’t never seen before. Everybody supports their local fire department and paramedics. We all depend on them and most of us have used their services at one time or another in our lives and been damned glad they were there. Those people are the ones that showed up when Grandpa had his heart attack or when Johnny got into an accident on the freeway or when Junior was playing with matches and set the house on fire. If antifa starts shooting first responders, they’re going to be strung up en masse from power poles by people that had never harmed a fly in their lives before.
Shooting ordinary citizens? That should be interesting. That old man that retired from his accounting firm a few years ago and now spends his time tending his roses was awarded a Silver Star for heroism in Vietnam. He had no problem killing to defend his Brothers then and he’ll do it now to defend his family. The same thing goes for that guy in his late 20s that manages the local Burger King – he was a squad leader in Afghanistan. Or how about that middle aged housewife that will defend her children to the death? Not just them, but there’s a whole lot of law abiding people that have never taken any crap off of anybody. Some people you just can’t read.
Antifa has let their ‘victories’ go to their heads, but think about this for a second: Every one of their actions has taken place where they have had a solid base of support, i.e. college towns on the east and west coasts. These are areas where the evil Right Wingers have been tightly controlled while antifa was allowed by the school admin as well as local PDs to run wild. Not once have they tried to pull their garbage in Small Town, USA. I have yet to see a single antifa member in Lafayette TN. If they’re here, they’re smart enough to keep their heads and mouths down.
Whether antifa wants to admit it or not, they’re in the vast minority. The Right Wing carried the last Presidential election in a way this Nation has never seen before. Do they not see this? Do they really think the entire population of the US will just submit and convert over to their way of thinking?
Last but not least: antifa is neither Republican, Democratic or Libertarian. They are anarchists. Nobody is safe from them. Wait until they start targeting democratic leaders and politicians – and that’s just a matter of time in the unlikely event that the Right folds and lets them win.
The bottom line is this: They may get some support on the coasts and in the inner cities where they’re egged on by BLM and their kind, but it won’t get much further than that. They may not even survive there once police and first responders start refusing to answer calls because of safety concerns, trucking companies refuse to make deliveries to warehouses and stores there because of damages to tractors and trailers and utilities are cut off because utility workers refuse to make repairs due to safety concerns.
Antifa will be making a major mistake by starting something they can’t finish. It will be quick, violent and bloody and they’ll go down the same path of obscurity as the Occupy Wall Street movement a few years ago. The only reason the American people will remember their name will be because of the universities and newspaper offices that the Right burnt to the ground in the battles.
And yes, we’ll destroy any statues or monuments they might try to erect in their ‘martyrs’ memory. What goes around comes around.
