A Long Read on Past and Future Civil Conflict

People have completely forgotten that in 1972 we had over nineteen hundred domestic bombings in the United States.” — Max Noel, FBI (ret.)

As I write this, the ’rats are in the process of stealing two senatorial elections: Florida and Arizona.  It’s the classic playbook: a close election, after which “uncounted ballots” are discovered in Democrat-heavy districts, their precise numbers undisclosed, with slaver lawyers parachuting in to make sure, as the rent-a-mobs chant, they “count every vote”.

Here is a long blog post, “Days of Rage”, dating from 2017-01-20 which I commend to your attention.  It starts out as a review of Brian Burrough’s 2015 eponymous book and then, like so many of my book reviews here, veers off into a long (in this case 13,000 word) riff on the book and what it means for us today.

For much of this young century, and especially since 2016, the U.S. has been in a Cold Civil War, and it is beginning to heat up.  People forget that in the early 1970s there were thousands of bombings by domestic revolutionaries who considered that their cause justified lethal force.

Today, the “correlation of forces” has changed.  The collectivists control the institutions and the means of communications, and they are more and more overt in exercising their power to silence the opposition.  And it is they who put the shock troops on the street.  Champions of liberty take comfort in the reality that we are armed and they are not, but they have demonstrated that they are willing to take the streets, destroy property, intimidate people, and cause injury.  We are much better behaved.

If you say, “It can’t happen here”, be aware that it did happen in the 1970s, and a converged media have suppressed the plain facts accessible by reading old newspapers or Burrough’s book (which I am reading and will review here in the fullness of time).

  1. Why do people in a peace movement blow things up?

    Why do people in a free speech movement shout people down?

    Why do people who are anti-racist say one race needs to feel shame and guilt just for being a certain color?

    I think the answer to these questions is the other side is not worthy to be considered as equals. They must be squashed so the “millennium” can be brought forth.

    People out of power want the right to speak but the same people when they get power want to deny people the right to speak. It is insidious that people for the “community” trample and squelch opinions.

    My answer is to lather up with Walker’s Law and shave with Occam’s Razor.  They do these seemingly contradictory things because it’s all a scam, and this is the the simplest explanation.

    SDS poster: “Bring the War Home”In the 1960s, the radical left, such as the SDS, were not about peace.  Here is an SDS poster from 1969.  “Bring the War Home” was the slogan coined by Mark Rudd, who would later join Weatherman (note, singular; the group would later be renamed Weather Underground to appease its feminist contingent).  These were not peace activists, as noted in the “Days of Rage” blog post,

    You have to understand: in 1968, many radicals absolutely believed that the United States was getting ready to collapse. One Weatherman puts it: “We actually believed there was going to be a revolution. We believed 3rd World countries would rise up and cause crises that would bring down the industrialized West, and we believed it was going to happen tomorrow, or maybe the day after tomorrow, like 1976.”

    This was a guerilla force aimed at pushing the U.S. over the brink by bombings, with their activities largely funded by bank robberies and other crime.  This was, of course, completely crazy, but those were crazy times.

    These are crazy times, although not as yet so violent.

    What the Left wants is not peace, or freedom, or equality but power.  So it has always been—the high language is to scam and/or shame the useful idiots who will aid them in gaining power.  Afterward, those supporters will be jettisoned: one person killed or starved is a tragedy; a million is a statistic.

    What is different is that now they’re increasingly open about their goals.  It isn’t just a bunch of smelly ne’er-do-wells who are talking about “smashing capitalism”, the “good censor”, or “white genocide” today: they’re in the universities, media, technology companies, and, more and more, public office.

  3. Are they going to succeed in snatching our victory away from us?

    Unbelievable, the ‘rats are always talking about the demise of democracy.  Well: there is no clearer indication of that  than when elections no longer settle things.  That is so Third World.

    Oh yes I remember the 70s.  And I remember Nixon being reelected in a landslide in 1972.

    SDS and its ilk has shown itself to be a virus like herpes.  My contrmporaries were infected with it back in college.  It may have lain dormant in them but now it has flared up again.  I have lost many friends to this scourge.

    What has changed, in places like Arizona and Florida especially, is that the ‘rats  have smuggled in a lot of non-Americans.

    And I’m not talikn’ about legal naturalization. Many people who go through that do so only so they’ll be better positioned to destroy our country from within.

    They’re hell-bent on extinguishing the light of the world:America.  And I’m afraid they will do it.

  4. John Walker:
    They do these seemingly contradictory things because it’s all a scam….

    Over the past two years I have seen several long essays that decry the loss of civility and political polarization.   They usually blame Republicans.   Some of the more silly and shallow ones blamed President Trump, but usually they blame the Moral Majority for pushing and pulling the Republicans further right.

    The real history goes back to the 1960s and the Leftist infiltration of the Democrat Party.   Following their disastrous 1968 Convention they changed their rules to make set-asides that guaranteed delegates to blacks and women.   Those positions mostly went to the most radical of the Leftist leadership, who, once obtaining a say within the Party, began to purge conservatives out of the Democrat Party.

    They were quite successful.   By the 1996 cycle we saw a popular Governor of Pennsylvania prevented from speaking at the Democrat Convention because he was pro-life.

    In a two-party system there was only one place for conservatives to go.   It took a long time, and it is only with this election that the GOP has finally gotten rid of its own Progressives.

    Political strife used to be Americans quarreling over how best to address issues we mostly all agreed on.

    Now political strife is the pro-America GOP versus the anti-American Democrat Left.

    Our position is precarious.   Half the country is poised to vote for the Anti-American Party, also known as the Treason Party or the Party of Death.

  5. I have told this story over at the other place. I was in the Army at Ft Gordon Ga between June of 1968 through June of 1970. Because I was a colonel’s driver I was normally  exempt from company duty like Charge of quarters but my colonel went on a 30 day leave and I was put on the roster for that time. I was my one and only experience at being in  charge of quarters which involved staying up all night and watching over the company. You also had the keys to the company armory where a couple hundred M-16 were kept. It was a totally uneventful night for me however not so for the next company over from me. This took place in the late winter of 1970. Our Battalion was very near a gate to the Fort that was only open during the day. The exit had those spikes like at a drive-in movie.  Somehow they were lowered and either the Black Panthers or the Weather Underground came to the company next to me. They duct taped the Sargent in charge and stole all the M-16 and a couple of 45 pistols. The Sargent happened to be a friend of mine and also he was black. The intruders told him that because he was black they wouldn’t slit his throat. The CID and FBI interviewed me but I didn’t hear or see a thing. I was told to never tell anyone (48 years later probably ok). I never saw it mentioned anywhere. Always wondered what happened to those weapons. BTW no ammo was stored in the armory.
