Snyder: "While Many On The Right Are Sleeping, Many On The Left Are Promising To Bring War To The Streets Of America"

Authored by Michael Snyder via The Economic Collapse blog,

You might want to start taking the radical left seriously.  When they tell us “you ain’t seen nothin’ yet” and that “this is just the beginning”, they are making threats that they intend to back up. 

There have been other times in modern American history when the left has resorted to physical intimidation and violence, but I believe that what is coming is going to far surpass anything that we have ever experienced before.  Of course not everyone agrees with me. 

On Monday I authored a piece about the “civil war” that is rapidly approaching, and there were some that loudly criticized me for it.  They insisted that we didn’t have anything to worry about from the left and that I was blowing things out of proportion.  As you read the rest of this article, I hope that everyone will start to see that I am not exaggerating the threat one bit. 

And what we should all be able to agree on is that the radical left is super energized right now.  Just look at what happened on Tuesday.  28-year-old radical socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez absolutely crushed 10-term congressman Joe Crowley in a Democratic primary in New York.  She was outspent 18 to 1, and in normal times something like that would never happen.

But these aren’t normal times.

While many on the right are in a deep state of slumber, the radical left is seething with anger.  Many of them truly believe that Donald Trump is the closest thing to Hitler that America has ever seen, and they also believe that anyone that supports Donald Trump is essentially a modern-day Nazi.

And if you take that line of thinking to the rational conclusion, any form of resistance against Nazi tyranny is justified, including the use of violence.

For a few moments I would like to examine an article that a progressive writer named Hamilton Nolan authored for Splinter entitled “This Is Just The Beginning”.  In his piece, he posed an ominous question to those of us that are conservatives…

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.

It doesn’t take much reading between the lines to figure out what he means by that.

In fact, later on in the article he tells us exactly what he meant

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.

For those of you that still don’t get it, he is openly telling us that domestic terrorism is coming to U.S. cities.

There are many on the left that actually crave a violent revolution, and they look back on Bill Ayers and the Weather Underground as inspiration.  The following comes from Art Moore

In the years 1971 and 1972 alone, according to the FBI, more than 2,000 bombs were planted throughout the United States by domestic terrorist groups. Among the chief culprits was the Weather Underground, led by Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dorn, who hosted a fundraiser at their home to launch Barack Obama’s political career. Among the Weather Underground’s targets were the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol.

Hamilton Nolan is not just some crank.  He has actually written an article for the New York Times, and he is quite popular in leftist circles.

In his piece for Splinter he was quite careful not to call for bombings himself, but at the conclusion of his article he did state that it was time to “start fighting” Trump and to begin treating members of the Trump administration as “criminals”

Stop working for this man. Stop enabling him. Stop assisting him. Start fighting him. The people who are responsible for what is happening are not going to get out of this with their happy wealthy respectable lives unscathed. This is a country that locks poor people in cages for decades for trying to make $20. This is a country that is “tough on crime.” Remember? And the ones who make the laws are not going to like what happens when America starts to regard them as the criminals.

So far, Nolan’s piece has been read more than 798,000 times.

And of course Nolan is far from alone.  This week radical leftists all over the country have been circulating a video on social media that seems to imply that Trump supporters should be gunned down at restaurants.

If this kind of hatred continues to be spewed relentlessly, it is only a matter of time before widespread violence breaks out.

Sadly, progressive leaders just continue to get more and more heated with their rhetoric.  For example, Michael Moore just compared Donald Trump to a rapist and his supporters to accomplices to rape

Grabien News reported filmmaker and frequent MSNBC guest Michael Moore likened Trump voters to accomplices to rape.

“If you hold down the woman while the rapist is raping her, and you didn’t rape her — are you a rapist?”

Moore added: “Anybody who enables, anybody who votes for and supports a racist is a racist. You are culpable, white America, I’m sorry.”

If you don’t believe that chaos is coming to the streets of America, just go hang out in places where radical leftists talk with one another on the Internet.

They are quite clear on what is ahead if they can’t take back control of America at the voting box, and it isn’t pretty.

And to a certain extent it has already started.  In a recent article, Kevin McCulloughsummarized just a few of the things that we have seen happen in recent days…

Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was literally shouted at until she left a dinner at an eatery near the White House. Press Secretary Sarah Sanders just Friday evening was told she would not be served (nor her family) at the Red Hen eatery of the Shenandoah Valley in Lexington, Virginia. She was told she was refused service was because she works for the President. Secretary Nielsen has had additional groups camped outside her house playing loud speakers, disturbing the peace of she and her neighbors. Entitled leftist celebrities like Robert De Niro bogart awards shows encouraging viewers to sexually violate the President. Washed up former TV stars like Tom Arnold claim they will harass the First Lady at her son’s school. And true Hollywood losers like Peter Fonda claim that Sarah Sanders’ as well as Melania Trump’s children should literally be raped by pedophiles and sex traffickers.

Sadly, the list keeps growing.  On Monday, a group of angry leftists ambushed Senator Mitch McConnell’s vehicle while he was leaving an event, and on Tuesday authorities in Los Angeles arrested 25 people that were protesting in anticipation of the arrival of Attorney General Jeff Sessions…

Arrests were made as hundreds of protesters gathered in downtown Los Angeles Tuesday ahead of a planned visit by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Twenty-five people were taken into custody after the peaceful organized protest was declared an unlawful assembly by Los Angeles police. Clergy were seen among those being arrested.

Crowds holding signs were given a five-minute warning to disperse by LAPD before the arrests took place, according to authorities.

All it is going to take is one large trigger event to set this country ablaze from coast to coast.

Anger and frustration are already at unprecedented levels, and this is happening even though the economy is performing relatively well.

Imagine if it wasn’t.

The Republican Party has just released a new video entitled “Unhinged”, and I recommend that you take a few moments to watch it.  If the radical left is this crazed now, what are they going to be like once things really start to go bad in this country?

For now, many on the right are ignoring this growing threat on the left, but I believe that is a huge mistake.

Chaos is coming to the streets of America, and it is going to be here a lot sooner than many conservatives would dare to imagine.

In the 70s, I don't believe a large chunk of the population including Hollywood and the MSM were rooting for the bombers. If this civil war goes hot there will probably be parts of the US Military on both sides, meaning it will be between Nuclear armed factions. The USA could be nuked back to the stone age. Clearly assassinating and disappearing key lefties now would be the more humane solution.

I’ve thought about the .mil response for a few years now.. They are under the cic for one - but aside from soft support dousches in the af and the like, the actual hard-core -the guys that can each neutralize 100 regular army in 20 minutes or less — the left FAR overestimates the numbers that will follow overthrow of the country. Sure, Obama’s generals will “I’m with her.” Im pretty sure that’s related to why the colonels and lieutenant colonels have side-arms. Treason in war has set rules and while I don’t know the specifics, there are guys willing to die for far less.

Then the next part is the trucking halt. It takes VERY few well trained guys to put up roadblocks and enforce gas-truck no-gos. The electrical system is even easier to modify as it leads to their centerpoints (lib cities.)

They think it’ll be easy. They probably have something in place to kill trump. Pray for him. But he needs to replace pense. Maybe mike lee? Ted Cruz? There are other dependable choices. 

Anyway, they assume much more support than they’ll have and they VASTLY underestimate the response.

Not that many extreme left posters on here like before and the one's who are still here are more moderate. I wonder if the extreme left has made them moderate as in what the extreme left is doing has made everyone make a decision. A decision to choose sides for the battle to decide the soul of America.

"Battlefield America" remember Senator Graham yelled out after voting for the NDAA which took our last constitutional rights away. Detention without due process and held indefinitely under the order of the president. The left and the right gave Obama total martial law powers. Remember? Now those same martial LAW powers belong to Trump.

Chicago? will be cleaned up in less than a week, says 82nd Airborne Commander who assured the president that the communist insurgency led by Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel will be terminated. No need to deport Emanuel back to Cuba, termination for being a communist Cuban Jew is good enough. Trump explains, I didn't even realize I had unlimited martial law power given to Obama in NDAA, but now I can use it. It's much easier this way, while Trump is cleaning up the entire country.

Let the games begin.

Rahn Emmanuel was Obama Chief of Staff during the economic stimulus rip off of nearly a trillion US tax payer money handed out to armies of homosexuals and communist. Very few shovel ready projects. That's an investigation the FBI never even thought of doing, the TARP bank robbery and next Obama economic stimulus rip off. What does the FBI do? so much corruption, now we find out the FBI is corrupt to the core.

This is NOT coming out of the middle of nowhere.

March 2017 former United States Attorney General Loretta Lynch said this:

I know that this is a time of great fear and uncertainty for so many people,” Lynch says. “I know it’s a time of concern for people, who see our rights being assailed, being trampled on and even being rolled back. I know that this is difficult, but I remind you that this has never been easy. We have always had to work to move this country forward to achieve the great ideals of our Founding Fathers.

It has been people, individuals who have banded together, ordinary people who simply saw what needed to be done and came together and supported those ideals who have made the difference. They’ve marched, they’ve bled and yes, some of them died. This is hard. Every good thing is. We have done this before. We can do this again.

Maxine Waters: "You ain't seen nothin' yet."

One thing I often forget because I am so aware and frequent places with other aware people, the average American has never heard of Justice Kennedy, has no idea who is on the Supreme Court or what any appointment really means. They don't watch news, they watch fun stuff on TV. 

It will be a small group that protests and commits the violence.  Half the country is not going to join them, they will back the President and the country. The left will just commit suicide like the owner of the Red Hen, Michael Moore, Peter Fonda, Kathy Gifford, Robert Dindu because they are insane and can't face being locked out of power. When controlling people lose control of others, they themselves spiral of control.

That's what we are seeing now. So if you are on the right don't go off half cocked thinking "this is it" most likely it's not it. Its just acting out by a handful of mentally unstable people who are going to end up dead or in prison. The civil war has been going on since Obama took office and it will continue to go on via laws, appointments, elections, culture shift. Don't get killed for these assholes, let it play out.

You are all missing that they won't be using your weapons, they will be using the coward's tool, bombs.

Terrorism, not warfare. You can handle warfare, but it won't be.

It will be a police action, and anything else is vigilante, not known to be justice. Just what they want, in fact, over-reaction from us that will trigger more laws and provisions enabling their power.

The CIA has another good tool to use against a regime, in other words, right here at home, nutured by the Soros crowd for years.

So that is what is ahead of us, lots of bombs, exactly what we have allowed our CIA to do so very often via tools like ISIS, Al Qaeda, etc. People they fostered overseas as Soros has done here at home, same playbook.

Remember how much power the FBI, etc. got out of the Weatherman? Terrorism and a terrorized population, a winning tool for authoritarian governments for millennia.

Blowback. Karma. We let it get out of control. We are responsible.  We are doing very little to correct the situation. And it is probably too late, terrorist events will cover the world's reporting and the worlds average mind.

Now people suffer. Our neglect.

Great advice. But it’s extremely optimistic and steeped in normalcy bias.

I do hope that I’m just being paranoid and over-analyzing — it wouldn’t be the first time.

But here’s a cautionary tale: my grandparents were hyper-rich. They lived throughout Central Europe. They weathered the Nazis. So when the Russians were coming, my grandmother said “we’ve been here for hundreds of years. We’re strong enough that we survived Hitler (although her brother died in dahau for saying that he wasn’t a fan, but she stayed positive.) She’d shouted down SS guys that tried to stop her taking wagonloads of food and clothing to her friend she learned was in a Jewish ghetto. Stuff like that.  She was very confident.

The reds came. That very night they killed all the staff, burned and looted everything and put my family in valporo, a communist concentration camp.

Cog, we're talking about American commies here, they'll blow themselves up trying to make a bomb.

Chemistry is not their forte' and they're much to impatient ;-)



Like I said below.....

Which is precisely why the intelligence agencies will infiltrate the leftist organizations to supply the know-how and material to create the bombs.

It is a classic divide, conquer and control technique used extensively during the 60's and 70's here in the US and around the globe.

The vast majority of petroleum, natural gas, electricity and food that all cities depend on flows from or through flyover country. Sorry city folk, but we will just cut off your supplies and wait until y'all eat each other.  Because there's only nine meals between peace and civility and total anarchy. So though, I don't advise that you do so, go ahead and start your shit.

I made bombs when I was a kid.

I had a friend who went to jdl summercamp. He told me that they were being taught bombmaking and similar resistance techniques. We were about 15.

 Even muzzies can make bombs, and they’re with her, as it were.

In Daniel, (I don’t think it’s a part Luther cut, so you can probably find it) there’s a section about the queen of the south making war on the king of the north and how her loss is final as well as surprising.

This may not be that, of course, but there’s often a rhythm or background beat in prophecy...

While I would never admit to a felony past or, it's not all that difficult. But I still submit that more lefties would die trying to make them from scratch than would be used against others. It's not like there's TNT laying around like back in the day and they're not gonna get their hands on C4 without insider help and it's got tagging agents mixed in anyways so, traceable. 

Could there be a few Unabomber-types on the other side with the knowledge and skill to make them from scratch? Sure. But not in the quantity required for a civil war. 

Larger picture, the left doesn't possess the skill set of weapons & tactics as in the past. This is largely due their drift (over generations) away from all things military and/or martial, they simply abandoned all interest in it besides the protesting of it.

That is to say, "the professionals" remain on our side by default due to many influences, patriotism, nationalism (communism is one-world not nationalistic), the lack of a draft etc...the way I see it, they don't have what it would actually take to do anything besides die trying.

Which is fine too ;-)

I suppose that there are advantages to getting old - I was a kid before safety was invented so there wasn’t any problem with learning about chemistry back then. We also didn’t have to wear helmets and bubblewrap when we went outside. I remember when cars had a couple of lap-belts tops and at the end of grownup parties people said things like “would you like one for the road?”

Fear not, there is a very powerful antidote. Every Conservative knows at least a few dyed in the wool liberals who they absolutely cannot stand. If the libs start killing innocent people with bombs, the Patriots will do the same. If every Conservative gun owners shoots three liberals they know every time the lib bastards set off a bomb in the States, the problem will soon be over. There easily could be a million dead liberals within a week. 

Let's see how many bombs they want to set off then when each bomb costs them a million of their comrades.

I'm a Sig man myself. 556R and my "go to" P226 side arm uses .357Sig ammunition. I want to shoot through most walls and ballistic protection. For quiet wet work I plan to use a Ruger Mark IV.

Once this starts, I believe that unfortunately most of the killing will be done at distances of less than 100 meters. It's going to be very upfront and personal, just like it was for me in Fallujah. Some people will be too civilized and won't be able to handle the violence and gore. Accuracy will take a back seat to volume of rapid fire. Full auto AK's or even home built 9MM sub-machine guns may be the weapon of winners in the urban and even suburban settings. Indiscriminate use of Molotov cocktails will burn huge swaths of the big cities. When the sappers and guerrillas attacked our embassy in Saigon in 1975, the weapon that triumphed for us cleaning out the vermin was the Beretta M12. Compact, small round (9MM) but deadly with rapid fire in close quarter and personal combat. 

Get good night vision and ballistic protection. You'll need it. Oh, and stock up on socks and TP. 

When you wake up and attack good quiet people, you should expect they will give you no quarter or mercy.

God bless and Semper Fi.

Like I stated in a previous post... America will see its own version of Weimar Germany.  But, remember this... the Brownshirts - once fully enraged and bound by a determination to end the chaos and insanity of their own "Left" - soundly defeated the communist wretches both in the streets and at the ballot box.  And once they held power in an iron grip, they moved on to deal with the (((forces behind the scenes))) who caused it all. Within the span of a year, they had turned their country around both economically as well as spiritually.  Believe all of the victors' dubious post-war myths if you will, but the fact remains that while an organized band of mature, honorable and focused men held the reigns of power, there was order, harmony and true prosperity the likes of which few nations have ever experienced.
