I have had a troubling thought the past week or so pertaining to the left ramping up, ramping up, RAMPING UP the attacks on Trump.

This is a simple formula that both parties do and to a lesser extent the smaller parties.

When an election cycle starts, pick the hot button topic, the wedge issues, make a hard stand and run with it.

Now, the left is a lot better at it because frankly the media is an extension of the DNC, at this point. They have support, they have cover, they can deliver their propaganda a lot more effectively than the right.

We have seen since Trump came into office the massive amount of pushback that is all over the media.

We know that the left has no problem making sacrifices of the citizenry for the goal... By All Means Necessary.

We've seen it in BLM, Occupy, anti-2A messaging.

The base of the left has been spoon-fed crisis after crisis after crisis since November of 2016. Keeping them focused, keeping them mad.

With this current "don't separate the children" madness, it seems to have reached a boiling point... there is no middle ground politically anymore to be in. You are with us or against us... no discussion needed.

I heard a commentator today telling Democrats "Remember. This election, it is not about Trump. It is about the people that VOTE for Trump. Every single one of them are actually the people that are ripping children from their mothers at the border. THEY are the problem."

DBCowboy was right in his Nazi thread... Trump supporters are rapidly being dehumanized.

So what is next?

The media seems all too eager to feed an ever-increasing maddened part of our population enough hatred to fuel a revolution.

A violent one, if I know the left.

Summer is coming.. things will get hot, people will get more frustrated, things are already almost off the rails.

Are we about to see the most violent #resistance in our lifetimes, if not ever?

Any thoughts on this, fellow ATS'ers?

BRING IT!!

I'm a vet, professional fighter and armed. I have friends who are just like me and if they want to ramp it up we're waiting.

A vet as well "fist bump" but the collateral damage would be staggering.

Although I don't think it would come to that... just enough violence spilling over in the streets for the President to have to pull troops in... then it would be political madness.

So not a "TSHTF" scenario.. but a political win for the left to force the populace to find a solution.

A Progressive solution.

I often think of the division in this country...the same people hating trump would adore him if the news said so.

If there was a "fight" however who do you think would win? Not the coddled "men" who are confused if they are a girl or not and need their safe space I can tell you that.

When you say "the Left" what do you mean?

Literally.

Because most "left" Americans are like most "right" Americans and most "middle" Americans ... we want to live in peace, take care of our families, go to our jobs and create the best life we can.

Who do you conceive as this proto-militant group that may be a danger to you?

I think more and more conservatives are starting to realize that they have to actually not just sit back and vote anymore they are now realizing that we have to at some point put our foot down with the children and kick some ass (not physical violence but generally speaking)

So either you have no actual idea what I am talking about, or you are deliberately being obtuse.

K.. onto the next response!

The Democrat NGOs (MSM, paidPACs, etc) are just getting warmed up.

The closer we get to November, the more they pour it on.

Little do they know, their tactics only work in Democrat voting pockets.

Everybody else knows who the Democrats are and what they stand for.

The "Names" in the "Name Calling" will get worse too.

Yeah, it could go south fast. One thing you have to remember though, there are a lot of former military out there with great training, many of which just want to be left alone, but will have no problem if they are pushed. The problem with these dystopian progressives is they can only push if they have anonymity or if they are in a mob with anonymity. The true mark of cowards when they are out playing in our reality. I honestly think they all have fetal alcohol syndrome.

Now it seems to be getting a bit quieter north of the border in Canada. It might be because it's now illegal to wear a mask in a protest. Instant arrest if the cops catch you as it is presumed you're there to create trouble, and rightly so. Maybe the states should try that, outlaw masks during protests, it might calm things down a bit.

I'm all for peaceful protests as a vehicle for the redress of grievances, but not for violence and social extortion protected by anonymity.

If it does get stupid, well, it's better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6. Somebody bothers me, I won't stand down.

Cheers - Dave

So much is coming out rapidly in reports and testimonies and what not...

It's hard to keep track.


But a lot is coming out that some people just do not want to hear or believe and they are unable to process it.


The next few months should be highly entertaining.

I honestly don't think it would escalate to a full-blown civil war.

I am just saying that if there ever was a time for rioting to commence, this would be the time.

I am also saying that the left is deliberately stirring the pot to make it happen.

Rioting would be in the left's interest. Politically.

I think if the police decide they will stop protecting these anti American a-holes the problem will solve itself

I know exactly what you're talking about. You have this conception that there is a nefarious group of people out there that oppose all your values and want to take something away from you ... you just don't know who they are.

Unless you think that all left-moderates, left-libertarians, liberals, Democrats, Progressives, Socialists etc. are all the same.

If you can't respond with something resembling a legitimate response in the future, please don't bother.

with these kinds of people it's not full scale war we would be facing anyway they are to cowardly and lack the training and fortitude to pull it off

they would revert to other forms of terrorism and attacks, that's what everyone should really be worried about

So groups involved in public health are now on your hit list?

Which ones?

Which groups?

Which Democrats? Which liberals, which progressives, which ... whatever.

Who are you talking about?

These kind of people eh?

Spoken like a true keyboard warrior.

I've known a lot of folks that talk big, and most that do, are shooting blanks.
