With only weeks to go before the election and the "blue wave" looking more like a swell, if anything, Democrats are desperate. Several party leaders have called for violence against Republicans. Others have pulled yard signs and encouraged people to harass Republican senators and representatives in public, to drive them from public view. Antifa, the military wing of the Democrat Party, has been more active and more violent; willing to assault anyone who does not immediately capitulate to their demands as was seen in Portland.
Where all of this ventures into the dangerous, civil war territory is that actions such as these have not only been condoned and encouraged by the mayors of the cities in which Antifa is active; cities that have rebuked the laws of the United States by claiming they are "sanctuaries"; cities that have refused to facilitate federal law enforcement; cities that have incited violence by refusing to arrest the perpetrators and instructing their police officers to stand down. They are trying desperately to get some patriot to the republic to take drastic action against these injustices.
In Minnesota two candidates for state office were either attacked in one case and assaulted in another case for their political views while on the campaign trail. It doesn't matter what justification these violent assailants use to defend their actions, they have been emboldened by their political leaders in the Democrat Party.
When one political party encourages violent action against another political party, that is the definition of civil war. It has gone "hot" and can no longer be ignored by the political party under attack. But, where is the pushback? I mean other than rhetoric. Where are the demands that someone is held accountable for inciting violence? Once again, the Republican Party can not be trusted to protect its supporters.
As Patriot Prayer and the Proud Boys proved, when political speech cannot be protected by laws, self-defense is justified. I recently told attendees of the Patriot Conference in North Carolina that it will become necessary for them to defend themselves from these attacks, because with the support that Antifa has from communist mayors across the land in every city in the nation, the violence will only spread. This violence is designed to intimidate and drive conservative thought into the weeds and to establish communism as the only accepted form of government. I mean, that is the actual goal of both the Democrat Party and their goon squads of pink-hatted women marchers and Antifa.
Antifa is misreading its successes as acquiescence. It takes a lot to rouse a patriot to action, they have jobs and obligations that don't allow for being arrested and tried, even if the ultimate outcome of the experience is exoneration. But, nothing stirs the blood like watching the violence in the streets that we have seen over the past few weeks.
For a while, patriots will allow the proper authorities to do their jobs; they will wait for Republican politicians to work within the system to make sure these criminals are dealt with in an orderly fashion, but if that fails (and I suggest that it will due to the weakness of Republican politicians to support their supporters) there are those patriots who will not stand by and watch people be assaulted by these goons.
Keep in mind this will not deter the Democrats Socialist Party and their henchmen. They want this civil war to go hot. They want to destroy capitalism and republicanism and recognize that a civil war is the only way to achieve that. Our engagement will only mean that they have been effective, which is why I would prefer that these thugs be arrested and sent to prison for 10 years as they should. That would do more to end this aggression than anything else we could do.
