I just heard a report on One America News about the fact that today, Antifa took out a one page ad in the NYT declaring Nov. 4th a day of action. Interesting who supports this grop with cash donations, the Tide Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation and the Alliance for Global Justice. They are apparently linked to Hamas as well!
If you are inside the “alt-right” information bubble, you might be preparing yourself for a civil war to commence this Saturday.
Since late September, the idea has been circulating on Facebook groups, subreddit message boards, Twitter, and leading conspiracy media outlets that on 4 November, anti-fascist groups will begin a violent insurrection.
Distract and dismiss: how rightwing media saw the Russia indictments Read more Some websites are telling their readers that antifa groups are “planning to kill every single Trump voter, Conservative and gun owner” this weekend.
Hundreds of Facebook posts show how seriously consumers of such media are taking the news, and comments like “One more threat against white people and I swear to God I’m going to take a goddamn car and run over every #ing one of them” are not unrepresentative of the response.
But antifa groups have no plans to protest that day, and the small leftist groups who are planning protests have only dubious connections to the antifa movement.
So what gives? The whole thing rests on some very slender reeds, according to Spencer Sunshine, who recently wrote a report on the theories for the far right-monitoring group Political Research Associates.
In the conspiracy underground on YouTube, he explains, there has been talk that “there was going to be a civil war” starting in November for some months.

Just for the hell of it, lets pause for a second and imagine that these beta-male, sunken-chested communists succeed.
What sort of government will emerge from their victorious take-over?

I haven't been manipulated in the least. If the result of this manipulation is increased preparedness/defense posture, then I think they already failed. I prepare for every eventuality and contingency. If there is even a 0.1% of this being real, then it is prudent to have a plan for protecting yourselves.
I am always in a perpetual state of "alert" but it varies based on the threat landscape. Not being taken by surprise (awareness) coupled with mental attitude/equipment/skills will keep you safe from the predators out there. It isn't a magic bullet, but you'll be one he** of a lot safer than the people walking around with their noses in their cell phones all day.
We should all refuse to be victims.
and to assume that this is a declaration of "Civil War" is straight lunacy
