One of the ripples that has emanated outward from the brick known as Trump after it was thrown into the swamp this past November deserves far more attention than it is currently receiving. The left has found itself with a lot of young and angry bodies, bereft of the Cinton political machine and the biggest names in the party well into their AARP memberships. With the recent political stunt of Calexit people opening an embassy in Moscow, the human terrain is ripe for an unofficial quasi-government to exist under the Trump administration. Already there exists a growing patriot-esque movement among the liberals that mirrors the antifa movement in Germany. Most of us have seen the call to arms of a few prominent liberals and numerous unhinged Millennials. While many of them appear laughable at first glance, the motive, and soon the means and opportunity will be there for them to adopt an October Revolution mindset.
A great majority are as serious about armed revolution as their threats for expatriation to Canada were, but it would take a mere handful of people with the proper guidance and funding to cripple infrastructure or commit psychological warfare like the recent spate of Trump hoaxes that include arson. I must admit, reading stories of statists arming themselves was initially conflicting to me. Philosophically speaking I am in favor of people purchasing what they want, without the interference of the perpetually misguided little tyrants the government always attracts. As a private citizen and a state of one, it doesn’t mean I have to like it. For a long time now we, the patriot movement, have enjoyed a massive imbalance of firepower, indeed even Uncle Sam is dwarfed in number by the small arms owned by the public at large. The recent trend of the statists beginning to arm themselves is a little, and it is very late, but bears watching. My chief concern is that those buying out of an emotional response will use them emotionally. I have serious reservations about those unable to master even the most basic terminology of a firearm to seek proper training from an industry they are hostile towards and who is generally hostile to them. Statists also have historically had a little problem with gratuitous application of force, albeit thus far in the US is has primarily been through third parties. The current crop of proto-tyrants in education have done nothing but create a barren ideological landscape, devoid of anything that could possibly interpreted as offensive to anyone and anything. I have less than the utmost confidence people who cannot tolerate a ‘white guy smile’ without launching into a diatribe, will have the judgment and emotional stability to avoid doing what they write on Twitter, Facebook and other social media.
Viewed from a different perspective, let’s think a moment about this from a strictly partisan angle. There is significant tacit support for acts of violence and protests, as long as the tip of the spear doesn’t cross the line into delegitimization. Absent that, they enjoy a significant logistics and psyops apparatus. Millions of dollars worth of media coverage, a social media presence without censure and household names to voice their support. They enjoy large donors like the Ford Foundation, Borealis Philanthropy, Open Society Foundation, and Center for American Progress. How much mayhem does does nine figures buy? Trick question, none of us could even begin to guess because at our best we might be able to scrape together six figures once or twice. Those who have read my previous posts know exactly what money buys and how essential it is to establish a beachhead for a revolution. A cursory look at the financing behind the Russian October Revolution will reveal some rather uncomfortable truths as to how and why this destabilization occurred. Jacob Schiff, Felix Warburg (related to Paul Warburg of Federal Reserve fame) and the interactions between William Steed and the Wilson administration make for fascinating reading in this regard. The point here is that there was a discontent, largely uneducated working class who formed the tip of the spear and a very long logistical tail that is barely discussed at all. The rising Alt-left has that logistical tail and we need to very cognizant of whether the tip of the spear is coming together and where.
I do not wish to conjure up imaginary dragons and bumps in the night for us to fear. What is concerning to me is that the coalescence of money behind a thinly veiled communist manifesto trotted out as BLM’s ‘demands’ and the masses of disenfranchised and hysterical voters, many of whom are convinced the opposition is an existential threat and barely human. A political arm also exists that can stay ‘above the fray’ and provide an appearance of legitimacy. Adding small arms to this toxic mixture of hate and statism is asking for conflict. The logistics for that are in place for one side. The other side is armed to the teeth with barely a shred of logistical support and virtually no money. Small arms are far more easily obtainable than $100M+ and national media cooperation. The situation is fluid and we need to recognize it as such. In two weeks there will be motive, and opportunity. All that remains is whether the statists will make good on their desire to have that ability. A dozen Weather Underground groups and countless psyops is an excellent way to create chaos. Chaos is the one remaining revolutionary condition required. Like I said, this is a trend that bears watching.
Individual possession of property, including weapons, is the sine qua non of a free society, and while the comments above sound like much of the tripe being peddled by the SPLC and others, I am not advocating any restrictions from adults purchasing what they want. However, we as a movement and as individuals can and should watch this development closely. Napoleon stated once that a revolution is an idea that has found its bayonets, and while the statists now see the opportunity for corporate, authorized violence by the state now being threatened, the move toward a true revolution is troubling. Conversely, there exists an opportunity for those of us capable and willing to subvert and redirect the recent interest in preparedness and firearms by the political left in a more productive direction. It is a natural inclination to resist plunder of your own resources by others, and I suspect the more self-sufficient a statist becomes, the more naturally he will begin to understand things like NAP and private property. In either case, keep your eyes peeled and know who lives around you, what they believe and trust the words of Mattis…have a plan for everyone you meet.
