Is she too stupid to get out of the way of a slowly moving car?

While you are both correct, please note that I said that "there's not much that you can do" if people are hell-bent on assaulting you (or worse) in situations like this where there are dozens, if not more, of emotionally charged small thinkers.

Of course, there are always firearms, bladed weapons, using the vehicle as a weapon, and self-defense skills that can buy you time and possibly facilitate an escape, but nothing is a guarantee in these situations. But, he certainly should have kept driving...and had a radio in the truck so that he could have known what he was driving into.



I think I'd rather be in a heavy duty 4x4 pickup. You don't have steps and a huge mirror to grip while jumping up on those steps.

The police are just pawns of liberal mayors.

They are ordered to allow these groups to act violent and when normal people oppose them, the police will run right in arrest

I've seen people scared for their lives while police force them to walk through violent liberal protesters while they are spit on and verbally attacked

The lack of response by the police speaks volumes



Yep, and you only see it in blue cities. That's where all your high crime and poverty is, too. You'd think a politician would have ran those stats by now in an election. Most, if not all, liberal controlled cities are like Portland.

The man needed to go straight and as a US citizen, it was his right to go straight.


Yeah, that's not an actual thing.

If some kid decides to jump rope at the end of your driveway and you can't get out without running her over, you don't get to assert an imaginary right and run that kid down because you desperately want to get to the Circle K.


Last week y'all were all against belligerence, this week you're all about it.


I have no idea what you're talking about but based on this thread, seems like there's ample belligerence to go around.


Yeah, driving on the street is an actual thing. If I had a mob of angry protesters that wouldn't let me out of my driveway, I'd keep driving and they would move or be moved. The only thing they share in common with a jump roping child is the mentality.

Heck, as a mother, if I were out there and had my young son in the backseat and he starts getting scared, what would anyone do?

Do you think I'm going to stay there and let them bang on my car and continue to freak out my kid and myself?


Nope, and as a father and a husband with a young son of my own, I'd tell you to keep driving and DO NOT STOP unless you're far out of sight.

You got it right, they're terrorists. It's time that they get treated like them.

It's right here in black and white...

Terrorist: a person who uses unlawful violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.

After watching that i would have to seriously invest time and money to have the mayor removed from office if i lived there. The police allowed this kind of behavior in their downtown area? And since when is it ok for anyone to direct traffic other than a police officer? So if i go to portland and decide i want to direct traffic they won't stop me?

Im amazed at stuff people allow to occur in their cities i would think the residents would be down at city hall. Maybe its just where i live but we had a similar incident where a group tried to protest they got 3 warnings to stay out the street and stop blocking traffic. After 3rd warning they ended up arresting about 40 people.

When police allow mobs to take over the streets they are creating situations were people will be hurt. That old man couldn't have defended himself his only option was to flee the scene. By the way found out the police know who he was he reported it to the police. Apparently did 3000.00 damage to his car.

I think what scares me the most is i could see my dad getting caught up in that. My dad would never put up with being called a racist and trying to tell him where he can and can't go. Only difference is my dad carries a gun and there would probably be dead protestors if they attacked him like they did that man.


Same as my dad. Locally he carries his 9 mm, but on long trips, he carries his .44 magnum hog leg, and you better have long arms or you won't pull that sucker of its holster. We (my mom, dad, and me) went to the back of my property to shoot my .357 Blackhawk and his 9 mm and hog leg, and my mom's itty bitty .380. I was loading my .357 with practice rounds, my mom was loading her .380 auto revolver with practice rounds, and we heard what sounded like a frickin cannon go off about 10 feet away from us and I almost jumped out of my shoes, my mom dam near turned a back flip. We looked up and the barrel of that hog leg had smoke coming out of it, my dad was looking at us with a huge smile on his face. Once my ears stopped ringing, he asked if I wanted to shoot it. Ehhhhh, I think I'm good, but thanks. Haha. I would most definitely hate to be on the other side of that barrel, it looks like it would blow an arm off.

Proportional escalation only makes sense if both side are evenly matched.

Most of the time it's prudent to use deadly force at the BEGINNING of a hostile conflict, as opposed to the end of one. 

Wouldn't you say?


Um...no. I'd call that murder. There is no virtue in using deadly force when one is not facing deadly force.

And no, I don't subscribe to the "better to be judged by 12 than to be carried by 9" philosophy. In the end, we will all be judged by the only One that matters. And there is no gain if I save my life but lose my soul.


As a Christian, God's not going to keep you out of Heaven for defending your life.

Quoted for truth... Imagine the anger if you sat in the middle of "their" street with the doors locked and laughed at em all while they tried to beat your vehicle and couldn't damage it. A paint ball shooter would be outstanding to have in a moment like that. Crack the window and plap plap plap!

Shooting into a crowd of people blocking a street sounds like a great plan. I expect it to happen within the next two years.

Another perspective: the crowd of protesters were moving across the street.

Seriously?? They were totally blocking the street, or marching in the street, which is what they do all the time - and which is illegal, unless you get permits and the street is cordoned off.

Many States are passing common sense laws that protect drivers who run over these moronic asshats, thankfully.

SORRY there is absolutely no defending these people. ANTIFA is admittedly Communist. I am truly sorry for you. You have abandoned all reason and civility. Condoning or defending this is reprehensible. This kind of action by the police and the mob will lead to nothing less than civil war. Kylaluv the far right you progressives accuse us of being have not perpetrated such acts on civilian population. When we gather peacefully your left progressives threaten. Only in Charlottesville did a fringe group ie NATIONAL SOCIALISTS, cause trouble. My particular flavor of Nationalism does not condone this kind of behavior. As a matter of fact we do it at the polls not the streets. Having said that I should let you know we are strong and if government shows obvious protection of ANTIFA and leans progressive Communist left with lies and intimidation, our side can unleash a fight your side will wish to GOD you never opened.

Of course not. When one's life is threatened, proportionate force is justified. That is self defense.

Any other use of deadly force is murder and is not justified.

ETA: God won't keep anyone out of heaven for defending and protecting life -- Christian or not. We may not understand (or want to understand) that we are ALL God's children, but God knows.

But I think the national out rage would make that difficult.


I would def enforce the law if I were a cop, someone would probably start them a gofundme if he/she was fired for enforcing the law. It would be a big payday for whoever stood up to the mayor by enforcing the law if it went viral.

Back in 2013, some people in WA state were ready for the protestors.

I guess they gave up on the idea or lost to the protestors.

Except "he" specifically stated "Turn the other cheek"...

In fact:

You have heard that it was said, "An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth." But I say to you, Do not resist the one who is evil. But if anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if anyone would sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. And if anyone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. Give to the one who begs from you, and do not refuse the one who would borrow from you.

— Jesus Christ, English Standard Version (Matthew 5:38-42)

Sooo... you are all going to hell?

Well, we can both read whatever we choose either into or out of the Bible. Obviously.

However, the scriptures you cited more appropriately refer to revenge or retaliation in response to an isolated action.

Would anyone suggest turning the other cheek while someone is in the act of raping a woman? Or a child??? Of course not. There is no virtue in turning a blind eye to such evil.

Likewise, there is no virtue in turning the other cheek when someone is actively trying to kill yourself or others, and proportionate force is justified in that moment to stop the attack.

And if I'm wrong, I'll find out when my Judgment Day comes.

Portland Police Want To Charge Driver With Crimes After Escaping Mob Protest

As the videos from last weekend’s protest in Portland have gone viral, namely due to the dereliction of duty on the part of the Portland police allowing the violent leftist mob to take over the city, one particular video has caught the attention of police and Multnomah County district attorney Rod Underhill.

The video in question shows a man in a silver car getting caught up in the protest. Apparently fearing for his safety, the man starts to drive through the protest. One genius decides he’s going to jump in front of the car and try to stop it, as other members of the mob converge on the car, shouting obscenities at the driver and beating on his car. The driver eventually made it through, but stopped at the red light up the block. There, the protesters chased him down, smashed a window out in his car, and started threatening him.

Now police are encouraging the protesters to come forward as “victims” so they can charge the driver of the car with crimes. The police refer to the violent thugs as “pedestrians.”



Here's the video of the incident.



It's not entirely clear to me why the police would take this approach. Nothing makes sense anymore.

they threatened with violence for a political purpose.
Terrorism by definition
Even if the left is only capable of small scale like rocks, bike locks and the occasional slop shot would be assassin followed by threatening to chop up families with an axe.

Don't even go to the movies with your family without a good blade is what I say.
They seem to be showing a pattern at this point, which is an increase in violent behaviour followed by harassing family members of Civil Servants.

Statist Socialism is based off revolutionary conceptualising of Government.
The Democratic leadership is "Rabble Rousing" in some form of "Leadership" to Oppress the Leadership and Government Officials on the right wing...

Might be time to make "That" thread........

I think with the midterms losses, they will riot in their concentration zones.
Portland/Los Angeles/New York maybe.

Others come to mind but I am not concerned with them.

I Guess the DNC and Democratic Left have decided to try triggering a Civil War using their base and supporting movements as pawns to "Radicalize" and send off like the guy who shot Scalise over healthcare.

I'm going to give all of you a warning and some wisdom.

BUY A MACHETE.
You are probably gonna need them by the midterms.

Their leaderships rhetoric is pushing as close to a "Call to Arms" and "Revolution" as they dare go at this time without crossing g the boundary of treason through sedition.

They are targeting our officials, if they manage to start scaring them off they will be running this country.

That's why the Maxine, the anything goes "By Any Means Necessary" routine, and Hillary the Usurper is telling people to "Be Uncivil"
Till power is theirs.

And they are only going to increase their extremity because what they really want is Control, and all they have to do is keep up the rhetoric and sooner threats of axe murdering wives and kids will become actual events if the people targeted DONT RE-SIGN which for every one of them that runs that's a win for the Democrats.

Midterms won't matter if they manage to scare off one.

YOU HEAR ME ATS?!?

ONE.. because if the radicalized left succeed at this obvious agenda even once, they won't stop till they forced OUR REPRESENTATION into RETIREMENT.

First Maxine then that guy that applauded GOP shooting, now more of them.

They are pushing for intimidating the bureaucracy of the Entire Right into surrending their station in order to remove any opposition to their power.

The more I explained the more I see that it is time to make "That" thread.
And Jack up my social media accounts to life to get the ol information Wermacht running again.

Because either one of two things can happen from this,
Either they slowly dissolve the opposing party Leadership through brownshirt tactics,
Or the Nation goes to War against the Democratic Left.

They are exploiting the "Democracy" in a similar manner to how Hitler and the National Socialists seized power.

Intimidate the opposition so their is only one choice come an election... Them.

Exploiting the Democracy to gain Power
...

I will be back later. I think it's time to visit some unpopular sites and have a conversation with some people I know...see if they see the same thing I am and ask them to spread the word amongst the underground Righty Lads if so.

The left is not going to like how this goes down.

We beat em in the Seats and the Vote.
And while they are trying to create more extremists in their base, it is at an infantile stage,
Whereis the Radical Right is quite populous and well developed, and thanks to Bush and Obama we got a whole Buffet of Flavors...

But I need to talk with some people before I go picking out a small meal from said buffet. Plus it hasn't gotten too far yet.

But get your machete and blade fellow REDs, it has unlimited ammo and it's effective and value was proven in Rwanda, Africa.

Might not of been for a good cause but it got the job done.

Didn't need a million guns there, just armed half the country with a few hundred thousand machetes.

By the time a Military force came to stop the chaos the ones with the machetes had already finished with the genocide of a few million people of a different ethnic tribe.

So I think they are effective when properly sharpened.
