The armed attack this past week on an FBI office in Ohio by a supporter of former President Donald Trump’s who was enraged by the bureau’s search of Trump’s private residence in Florida was one of the most disturbing episodes of right-wing political violence in recent months. But it was hardly the only one. In the year and a half since a pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol, threats of political violence and actual attacks ..... CORRECTION*


This is the kind of drivel the left is consuming these days. Just saw a bit of TV coverage; they're quaking in their boots. Reminds me of the joke that (a certain group) is upset about the reaction to tomorrow's attack.

The left is doing everything they can to provoke violence. Any violence that happens will be false flag and manufactured for publicity. Wait until they arrest Trump then the real thing happens.

Right-wing rhetoric and an increase in threats are an entirely predictable reaction to increasing provocation. This isn't happening in a vaccume, its being provoked. You can't insult, silence, harass, punish and provoke half the population without eventual blowback. Especially when you destroy their belief in equality of justice, equality of treatment and in free and fair elections. When you destroy a peoples belief in or actually destroy their ability to get change thru the ballot box or thru the courts, what do you think their reaction will be? The last 6 years of liberals assaulting conservatives was brought about by said liberals inventing a story, whole cloth, that Trump stole the 2016 election, preceded by the false story that the SC selected Bush. Couple this with no one being punished for Occupy Wall Street and BLM riots. Current nationwide looting, rampant illegal immigration and letting men into little girls bathrooms, and one can guess where all of this is heading. Worse, one political party insists on feeding the fires.

Ohhh puhleeeze stop. If the “Trump loving” cult members on January 6 behaved like Antifa in Portland the whole building would have been flattened and many LE blinded by laser lights and bludgeoned with frozen water bottle and multiple persons shot dead. Someone should hold the media accountable for spreading this drivel to sell their rags and incite violence. Grrrrrrrrrr.

No actual violence to report, just unsubstantiated 'threats'. Meanwhile, they are too busy reporting on this to tally up the actual violence done in the name of their Leftist agenda. So remember kids, never complain - no matter how partisan, oppressive, or abusive of their power the FBI and DOJ act. Because that could lead to other people saying mean things. And, we can't have that. In fact, we might need to bring in the FBI to shut you up.

Washington and the left are counting on violence. They need it so they can crack down. In the long term it will be the only way they can hold onto power as they continue to lose support. People don't like tyrants, crooks, and incompetents telling them what to do. People don't like it when they see the government wrecking their lives and their country. The irony here is it doesn't really matter what the government does. The mess they have created will pull them down and choke the life out of them. There won't be any money to steal. They will be 'kings' and 'queens' over a wasteland. People won't do anything that may support the government in any way. Especially a productive lifestyle. Why produce when everything you create gets stolen? Our government officials will be objects of mockery and derision on a worldwide scale. Point and laugh, people!

Political violence is nothing new. It's been around since forever. The Bible is full of political mayhem and bloody conflict. It serves a purpose. The United States is no exception. At the core of current American political turmoil is a break between government and the governed. Our authorities are tearing up our social contract embodied in our Constitution with no serious repercussions from any elected officials. That violative behavior has now been openly directed at the one politician who attempted to break the power monopoly invites violence. Meanwhile, regular America has no leadership to coordinate opposition. Regular Americans continue to believe in that "two-party system" and "It can't happen here." Rampant government lawlessness and apparent illegitimacy notwithstanding. Until a substantial portion of the American public decides to actually do something besides whine about the '20 election theft and the '22 "rigged elections", our political diminishment will continue to spiral. Rather than keeping our powder dry, there must either be a "velvet" response building civic awareness and support, or continue to be buffaloed to accept the inevitable future of liberty lost. Violence is not the solution, but peaceful public demonstrations of opposition are long overdue.

Really? A 'supporter of Donald Trump's'? I call BS. More likely a false flag, or at beast a disturbed man who by chance is more fond of Trump than Biden. An AR15 and a Nail Gun? Really? And he shoots the nail gun and runs away? Look, folks. These people are morons, but they don't fear us, because we are not good neighbors, anymore. In Colonial times, Everyone knew everyone. They talked across fences, looked after each others kids, retrieves escaped farm animals and repaired each others homes. They knew when their neighbor don't the street was sick or injured and went to help. They met up in church, sang in the choirs, and if there was discord between members, other members would step in separate them and begin to counsel and help them. In the last forty years, the Left has destroyed that, but that doesn't mean we can't get it back. The Left counts on us being little islands who won't help one another when trouble comes to their door. Those 87,000 new IRS agents? They will be trained to think of themselves as 'US' and everyone else is 'Them' and in any conflict they will treat one another as a neighbor. It's basic military training, these days. And they WILL win, if we don't wise up. They will pick us off one at a time. If we aren't organized and alert. Reform communities. Be aware of who your neighbors are. Be aware of what their jobs are. We are in the Soviet Union, now. When I visited Romania, before the fall of Communism, it was really weird. People, when they spoke, did so quietly, from inches away while looking over the shoulders of their companion to watch for spies and betrayers. They formed family and neighborhood groups and even then, were sometimes taken by the secret police under spurious charges. The government has never been our friend, and now they are becoming threatening. Form militias. Don't call them militias - call them social clubs. but get together with people you trust and form bonds. be prepared to defend one another with your very lives. Form networks of friends form them like chain letters. Your freedom will depend on how strong you form those bonds. Franklin commented near the country's founding, "We must all hang together, or we shall surely 'hang' separately." A cohesive team will beat a team of individuals every time. Stay strong. Reach out, intelligently. Beware of strangers, but lean who they are observe them, and make them friends. Hell is coming.

Re: #14 - I applaud the effort to outline concrete steps that can be taken to slow or halt the downward spiral of traditional American values and freedoms. You've articulated practical actions besides praising Trump for fighting in our stead, bemoaning the cowardice of RINOs, or issuing vague threats of future magically organized kinetic action by normal citizens, sentiments that are most popular on this site by a wide margin. I'm sorry that your effort isn't catching fire and being further expounded upon as easily as should. Keep pushing, as you're on to something.

Give me a break. Select one off Right Wing acts of violence are amplified and shouted far and wide across the nation by the media and liberals while the wholesale rioting and destruction of cities, deaths, violence, and threats of more of the same were carried out by left wing activists across the nation for years, specifically the summer of 2020, and the media never made a negative comment. They were "mostly peaceful protesters" as entire city blocks were burned to the ground and block after block of stores were looted in the name of "justice". They never said justice for what. The media and Democrats have a warped view of the world that makes anything they do not bad, but if someone else does the exact same thing as them, they are satan reincarnated.

And while we're thinking about these two ugly examples, just where ARE Antifa and BLM? On vacation? Waiting for the call? Sharpening up their skills for the next riots and rampages? Still selling off all the loot and booty from the years of pillaging?
