PSA: November 4th 2017

First, no one knows what “antifa” is planning on November 4th. Forget all the fearmongering “they’re planning civil war” hype clickbait headlines I keep seeing all over social media.

While I tend to laugh at the antifa dirtbags and their antics as much as the next guy, I am very concerned about this November 4th fiasco in light of the intel I’ve gathered about the groups involved and the statements they’re making. Couple that with the escalation in incidents of unprovoked physical violence and well, I’m concerned.

Here’s what we do know:

  • The leftist organization Refuse Fascism is calling for mass protests/civil disturbance starting on November 4th 2017.
  • Antifa has stated that they are working hand in hand with Resist Fascism for the November 4th date.
  • Refuse Fascism states in their November 4th posts that Antifa are welcome.
  • The Revolutionary Communist Party USA has a very rambling (and slightly insane) statement about November 4th on their news site.

You can read the whole thing here, but this is the bit that concerns me:

What people don’t know, and need to know, is that THEY ARE THE WAY OUT OF THE NIGHTMARE, if they join together and act outside all the normal avenues that they expect society and government to provide for redress of their concerns—outside the ways that they would normally think of to act themselves for remedy. Waiting for investigations, waiting for the Democrats to act, thinking that Trump will implode, hoping for 2018 Congressional elections, even protesting each abuse—as righteous and part of people raising their heads as such protest is, these are all acting within the normal frameworks that people have grown accustomed to thinking and acting within for change in policy and direction.

We also know some other things:

  • Steven Crowder sent someone undercover in an antifa cell and he recorded video of them handing out weapons to “stab nazis” and discussing ambushes involving firearms. 
  • Their definition of “Nazi” seems to look a whole lot like anyone who isn’t far left.
  • Antifa likes to get violent at events.
  • Refuse Fascism likes to block freeways.
  • George Soros just dumped $18 billion into what is now the largest activism group in the world.

Now, the antifa cell that Crowder penetrated was arrested by local PD, so that particular group isn’t currently a threat, however couple the revcom statement above with what we saw in Crowder’s video, and Soros’ $18 BILLION, and this is now a credible threat.

All three groups I’ve talked about have stated that this November 4th fiasco is just the beginning, they’re talking in terms of starting on November 4th and continuing for days, weeks, or months.

So we have one group discussing on film using small unit tactics to ambush people they disagree with and lure them into staged ambushes using rifles and shotguns, and the other two talking about mass protest/disruption until the lawfully elected President and everyone associated with his administration are removed, possibly months.

Add to this all now a deputy US Marshall going on video stating that they have credible intel that antifa plans to target first responders and you’ve got quite the recipe for chaos.

Could this lead to Civil War? Well, yeah. At least potentially. Will it? Doubtful.

But, I think the time has come for us law abiding gun owners to start evaluating this riff raff as a credible threat. They’re targeting you.

Be smart. Don’t go get involved in protests (even high speed low drag operator types can easily find an ice pick in their kidney in the chaos we’ve seen in the last few protests). Pay attention to the news, and don’t get stuck in traffic jams caused by this nonsense. Make sure your friends and family know what is going on here and what is potentially at stake. If you live in a major metro area (especially one being targeted for the November 4th fiasco), make contingency plans and plan an evacuation route. Make sure you have gas in the car and a go bag or two prepared.

I’m not saying it’s go time, but be alert and be prepared.

Don’t play their game, and don’t let their bluster control your life, but be aware of the herd mentality and how fast things can go from “hey that’s not really cool” to “oh look half of LA is on fire.” Learn the lessons of the 1992 LA riots. 

Now think about what we’ve seen over the last couple of years in Furgeson, and Charleston, and Berkeley, and many other places. Protracted civil disturbance can have a very real and very severe impact on your day to day life, and as tensions rise it becomes more likely that an inciting incident will occur which ignites a riot.

These are the locations and times I’ve found that have been gathered from posters advertising the November 4th fiasco:

  • Seattle, WA – 12pm, 4th & Janes St. (Seattle City Hall Plaza)
  • Portland, OR – 2pm, Salmon & Fountain
  • San Francisco, CA – 3pm, Union Square
  • Los Angeles, CA – 1pm, Pershing Square
  • Philadelphia, PA – 2pm, Thomas Paine Plaza (1401 John F. Kennedy Blvd.)
  • Honolulu, HI – 9:30am, Ala Moana Park (EWA Side)
  • Cleveland, OH – 1pm, Public Square
  • Chicago, IL – 1pm, 219 Dearborn (Federal Plaza)
  • Boston, MA – 4pm, 1 Franklin St. (Shoppers Plaza)
  • Austin, TX – 1pm, 422 Guadalupe St. (Republic Square Park)
  • Atlanta, GA – 4pm, Euclid & Moreland Ave. NE (Little 5 Points/Findlay Plaza)

I hope I’m totally wrong, and this all turns out to be nothing to worry about.
