THE RIGHT OF SELF DEFENSE–EVEN IF VIOLENT
Video version at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eWMy9NQ1z6E
A few months ago I stirred the cyber pot a bit with a few posts that suggested
that a second coming of civil war may be brewing in this country. The comments
back were varied. Some believed we should oil our muskets now, others wrote
my post off as yet another lunatic who created a few minutes of recognizability
by simply hitting the Record button on the laptop and letting the rant fly. One
notable YouTuber, Mark Connors, suggested that we let Trump take care of
things as he undoubtedly would now that his hand has officially returned
from the Bible to his pen after the swearing in.
But, it appears I was right. Hate to say it, really, but I was. I wanted Connors
to be right and me wrong. But I’m not. I’ve been watching closely the rise of
The Resistance. The Resistance isn’t a bunch of protesters. They are radicals.
Marxists. Revolutionaries in the the manner of the Bolsheviks who did not
get their way in the 2016 Presidential Election.
And they have gone violent since that day.
Now the issue isn’t that the Marxist has gone violent. The issue is nothing
has been done about it. And no, a few days in jail for a very few of them
is not resolving nor will resolve in the future these actions of these now
nationwide radicals. In Berkeley they have used violence when right wing
speakers are scheduled to orate. They are, with no exaggeration, attempting
to shut down our free speech. And not too long ago I watched a video of the
police simply let them throw M-80s as well as physically attack the Trump
supporters. Two police officers were filmed and asked why they weren’t
intervening. One answered, and I quote: “That’s a good question for the
Well, that’s not a good enough answer, Officer. You have a sworn duty to
uphold the law, regardless of unlawful orders from above. And those
orders telling you to stand down? To allow the thug to engage in criminal
acts? To allow people to be assaulted? They are unlawful. Period. Obeying
them is a neglect of your sworn duty. So when you refuse your duty as you
Then the citizen has every right to defend himself from violent revolutionaries
with violent force.
That would mean at that point you step aside, Officer, as you have already
forsaken your oath and the law. You have forfeited your right to carry the
gun. You have dissolved your right to carry the badge. You do not get to
intervene only to support the radical violent thug.
The problem is, and I’m pointing the finger to many conservatives as well, is
you keep letting violent thug protesters get away with violence. Recording it
and posting on Facebook? Very clever and entertaining. But obviously it
isn’t going to stop it. Not when the upper echelon now sides with the rioter.
We have every right to engage in violent self defense against violent
protesters. It is not up to us to sit at home, afraid to exercise our right to
free speech. It is not up to us to file a complaint after the fact of an attack,
when the blood has dried, especially when you have clearly shown, law
enforcement, that you are unwilling to enforce the law.
That would mean that violent protesters may get hurt. Because you sat
in your squad car and let the criminal continue. That means that violent
protesters may get killed in their acts of violence. Because you sat in your
squad care and let the criminal continue. If law enforcement is unwilling
or unable to contain these thugs then that’s what should happen. Maybe
if the next feminazi attempts to throw a bottle with an M-80 in it at Trump
supporters, which has happened and is on video, by the way, maybe she
gets her head bashed in during the attempt. Because you sat in your squad
car and let the criminal continue. As that would be self defense as well as
defending against a domestic enemy. Maybe that means if the next ANTIFA
group charges then they should be met with a riddle of bullets. And maybe
we are at the point where we will have to declare civil war on all of them.
Proactively. And why? Because you are sitting in your squad car and letting
the criminal continue.
Maybe we are so far gone that hundreds of thousands will have to die before
we are the land of liberty again. Because right now we are not. Right now a
conservative isn’t free to ride around with a Trump sticker on his car. And
why? Because there are supposed to be consequences for actions. And you,
Officer, have given none to these violent radicals.
Now the Officer will tell you he is only doing his job. No, Officer, you are
doing the exact opposite. You are siding with tyranny. And be advised
if you are going to support the violent protester then you should have no
safe quarter as well. For if you are aligning with the tenets of tyranny, then
you are no better than a guard in old Germany following orders in the
concentration camp. But when this finally happens, and it appears it is
starting to as the Trump supporters are starting to fight back, do not cry
that we are being lawless. Do not cry about the extremity of the counter
violence. Remember, you let it happen. You, Mr. Prosecutor, do not get to
use the phrase “law and order” when you clearly abandoned it.
I’m not a global organizer like Jim Gilchrist of the original Minuteman
Project. I have a few skills, but global leadership isn’t one of them. But
I’m waiting for a Gilchrist. Or a Washington. We’re waiting, Donald Trump,
for your intervention. But if you can’t give it, Mr. President, then we will
have to rely on another Continental Army. For it is coming close to the day
when we are going to have to carry our own buckets to the fields to water
the tree of liberty before it finally perishes.

midst of Christ’s return. A dire prediction of failed Progressive thought takes form in
