Five Reasons I'm not worried about Antifa

I was having a discussion with Jesse in DC about what could be the coming Civil War 2.0. Not the 2nd American Revolution because it's our own government that's out of control and our own citizens that seek to enslave or kill us. He stated concern over the fact that their side is so much better organized than ours. Recent experience with someone who turned an attempt to organize the Patriot community into building his own mini-kingdom and slush fund has taught me that we are pretty much a group of lone wolves not easily organized. Kind of like trying to herd kittens on crack. But when the occasion warrants, like when one of us is in trouble and needs help, the Patriots come on fast and furious. Nothing can stop us. Why? Well, President Trump touched on it in his address to the Polish people. We have a little something called "will to survive." We have the strength of conviction to fight for what we believe is good and true, fight for our inalienable rights, fight for this amazing social and government experiment called  a Constitutional Republic. What does the other side have?

Well, money and organization. That's at the top. Way, way, way at the top. At the tippy top far above the blood and smoke of the battlefield. They are the politicians, the rich socialists (ever wonder how a socialist got rich?), the professors, the "elite." They have no intention of getting their hands dirty, that's why they have all those kids they've been grooming for the last few generations. Their soldiers in the field, their Antifa Warriors.



Stop giggling, that's rude. You'll trigger them and send them running to their safe spaces. I have actual valid reasons to not be THAT worried. Yes, at the moment they outnumber us, but so did the Tories. Ask them how that worked out against a bunch of pissed off lone wolves with resolve. Here are my top five reasons to not fear Antifa.
  • Winning. Seriously, if you've lived your entire life not being allowed to feel the sting of defeat, how will you handle it when you lose a skirmish? When you can't call time out because things aren't going your way? When you can't quit, take your ball and go home to mom's basement? The Powers in charge of Antifa haven't thought this through. They've raised generations full of quitters, crybabies, and whiners. They had to have safe places after President Trump won an election. Do they really think the people with the money are going to come save their asses when it gets dicey? George Soros doesn't give a shit, Bill Gates can't shoot, and Obama's on another vacay.
  • Leadership. In addition to always winning, these kids have had it planted in their soft little heads that they're too special to be anywhere but at the top. They've all been groomed to be chiefs with 100K salaries and corner offices. When they realize they aren't going to be Chiefs, but lowly Injuns, things will start falling apart. You think someone with crippling debt who refuses to take any job available because it's beneath them is going to be happy as a foot soldier getting shot at?

  • Dependency. The Soldiers of Antifa have never been independent. I'm not sure they even know what independence means. They went from mom and dad's support to Uncle Sam's support by way of colleges and/or social support programs. Someone has always paid their bills to the point that they expect someone else to pay the bills. Right now, they have a sugar daddy in Soros, but they don't understand how tenuous that support is. Soros isn't going to pledge his life, fortune and sacred honor to topple the US government, he's not that devoted. If either his life or fortune is ever threatened, he'll pull out faster than a Catholic with 12 kids. And let's face it, he's a little short on sacred honor. Once the money is pulled, the Antifa movement will dissipate.

  • Preparation. Yeah, they're organized, but they ain't exactly prepared for actual war. Throwing Molotov cocktails, rocks and right hooks, spinning sticks like a basement ninja, these aren't the battle skills they're going to need to take on Patriots. How many of you have been to the range or out in some field shooting? This week? This month? Today? Most of them have never held a pistol, never served in the military, never had to zero a rifle on the run. Most of them have never had to run. Now don't get cocky. I'm better than most, but nowhere near as good as I need to be. The eyesight and headache issues have kept me off the range for the last six months. Dry fire drills just aren't the same. Stay prepared my friends.
  • Cohesion. Last but not least, cohesion. The Left has been pushing identity politics for generations, pitting one special interest group against another. Now they think they can organize the split special groups into one force against the Patriots. Uh-huh, sure. Let's see how that works out. They're already at each other's throats. The BLM crashed the LGBTQ Rainbow parades. The BLM and Muslims hate the LGBTQ. The Feminists hate, well, pretty much everybody; they're attacking PETA over bikini-clad models. Nobody can stand the Fems. And the illegals don't give a shit as long as they don't get deported. One thing about the Patriots. We may not like each other, we may not always agree, but if we know we're all fighting to protect the Constitution, we can put our petty differences aside. And that's what Antifa is really attacking: The Constitution.

So there you have it, the reasons I can sleep at night. Oh, that and the Sig next to the bed.

All jokes and name-calling aside, cohesion is the big one. Yes, they have organization. They have over-organization. Everything is a committee, everything is consensus. Everything requires a mission statement and declared intent. What it amounts to for most of them is simply talk. Maybe organized protest. Antifa is a little different in that they actually get out of the meeting, but it just comes down to a strong leader directing some angry kids who got bullied a lot in school. Even then, it comes down to Making A Statement, not making effective changes.

As far as "our" side not being organized, I disagree. We're very tight on the local level, the cell level. While we disagree on some of the specifics, and tend to be insular at times, overall we have the same general goal: an America that will essentially leave us alone and let us get on with it. But, with many of us having military and law enforcement backgrounds, or associations with those who do, we have a much better understanding of chain of command and getting past personal differences. If it comes to civil war, we'll be in a much better position to both come together for it, or disappear into the woods, metaphorically or otherwise.

Interesting times.

Pats not organized??? Darlin, if I may call you so, time to bring the Bundy Ranch stand-off front and center. And that was a tiny skirmish with the fed. NOW imagine a civil war with liberals as all well regulated militias come together...

Your missing a important peice of this. Antifa and BLM both have two sides. The 1stis what you mention above. The 2nd are training and planning.

The 1st group are the useful idiots who will be used to riot, cause mayhem and potentially soak up bullets. They don't know they are expendable and are the 'useful idiots'.

The 2nd group are the ones I worry about.

I read the speech Trump gave in Poland. Made me feel a little tingle of nostalgia, as if Reagan were still around. Not like the previous resident at 1600 Pennsylvania ave. As to a civil war, God help us that it doesn't come to that, but if it does, the main thing that Patriots have going for them, is that our cause is one that we are willing to defend with our lives, if need be. I doubt that many on the left are that committed. Freedom is just a word to many of them, while to the Patriot, it is not a way of life, it IS life.

Dan said...

Antifa is just ONE of a multitude of fronts and groups funded and puppeteered by the commie left with George Soros chief amongst the puppeteers. In and of themselves they are mostly impotent whiny brats throwing temper tantrums. The real issue is what is behind groups such as Antifa. Those are the people who can truly
wreak havoc on our society. Antifa is a symptom....you can treat a symptom but the disease doesn't go away. We need to get to the root of the problem....the people in the shadows who are working very hard to overturn what's left of the US and take back power.

Bobo the Hobo said...

Brava, Angel! An articulate, well-reasoned argument as to why we need not worry (too much) about those whiners. Keep your powder dry, my friends.

"Stand your ground. Don't fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war let it begin here." Captain John Parker, to his Minute Men on Lexington Green, April 19, 1775.

Defend the Constitution for this is the hill I am prepared to die on. I wonder if they understand the consequences of their actions. Bobo the Hobo

Author Matt Braken has an article over at WRSA that covers his observations and thoughts about the next civil war; it's worth reading.

Sorry, but disagree with the post and most of the comments. I see the classical error of belittling and underestimating one's opponents. They may seem like a bunch of over-indulged amateurs, but then so were the Russian revolutionaries: in the beginning. The rest of course is history; history we are still living with.

hiswiserangel said...

And I respectfully disagree with you. You're comparing apples to orangutans. The Russian revolutionaries were heavy with disgruntled military, working lower class used to hardships with little or nothing to lose, and left-leaning middle-class. In America, the military was starting to purge Patriots under Obama and would have continued under Clinton. They didn't plan on a military re-birth under Pres. Trump and Sec. Mattis. If there are Marxist revolutionaries in the military, they're in the minority.
The underclasses in America have been systematically pitted against each other by the Left to keep any one group from gaining too much power. What they didn't count on was the identity politics taking such deep root in the fertile soil of welfare entitlement mindset. Each group feels they should be more entitled than the others, and when push comes to shove, it will be easy to turn them against each other.

And finally, American middle class in the 21st century compared to Russian middle class at the turn of the 20th century are soft and coddled. They can't even imagine the hardships they'll face in a revolution and have no practical skills of survival. Most Patriots are crazy ass "preppers" who know at least basic survival skills and have basic provisions laid back.

The Russian Revolutionaries were prompted to overthrow the government because their living conditions were untenable. The Antifa Revolutionaries are being prompted to revolt because they aren't getting enough free shit and some people don't want co-ed bathrooms. There's really no comparison.

Angel, I've been wondering if we had anyone who could approach the clarity and detachment of Mike Vanderboegh.... question answered.

Thanks Angel for reminding us that we come here for more than just humor and recipes. Many voices out there but not so many voices of reason. Yours is one and we thank you for taking the time to use it.

hiswiserangel said...

Thanks, I think? People either loved Mr. Vanderboegh or hated him, there was no middle ground.

Anonymous said...

I thought of that, but whatever the opinion held of his views, he was always clear and detached. You could always see his point, and either agree or disagree. I would love to write as well as either of you!

@hiswiserangel

I differ slightly as to why the communists, eventually prevailed in Russia, but can list other significant historical instances not taking the other side seriously examples.
1. Our own War of Independence. The British did not take seriously our resolve or our ability to go toe to toe with their army (yes, the French did help)
2. Napoleon. His famous quote that the British were a nation of shopkeepers. Some shopkeepers they were.
3. Our Civil War. Both sides were equally and disastrously wrong about how seriously they took each other.
4. The Germans in WWI and in WII. WWI, when asked about the significance of American intervention, one German general is said to have remarked, he'd send the police to arrest them. In WII, they (and the Japanese) grossly underestimated/ did not take seriously our industrial capacity, the willingness of our soldiers to fight and our technical ability to produce superior weaponry.

Guess we'll have to agree to disagree.

Roy said...

"...technical ability to produce superior weaponry."

Our weaponry in WWII wasn't all that superior. Indeed, some of it was very much inferior. What we *did* do was produce a whole lot more of it.

Fish Out of Water said...

@ Roy. To a degree I concur. Our tanks were not all that good nor were our early fighters (Wildcat) or torpedo bombers (Devastator) or torpedoes. But remember the P-51 fighter, the Hellcat and Corsair fighters which were superior to German/Japanese fighters. And yes, the Germans were the first to put a jet fighter in combat and could have done so much earlier had Hitler not been such a stupid control freak.

And for the German stuff, true their tanks were technically much better, but the Germans over-engineered them, making them more difficult to produce and more difficult to keep running in the field.

J Bogan said...

I would put my Garand up against any other battle rifle fielded in WW2. I have shot SVT40s, K43s, and Enfields of all stripes. The M1 is far superior. In the end, it is the Grunt that takes and holds property, and our guys, man for man, clearly had superior arms.
Like Angel says above, we, or at least I, am willing to die to save my country. Are they?

If we ever lose our liberty it will be the elected legislature, the police and the military that take it with bullet and bayonet. What your detractor seems to forget is that the Communist revolution in Russia had been underway for decades to no effect, UNTIL, the Russian military and Duma joined the soviets. As long as this is only street riots we have nothing to fear--Ray

That is the true measure of the battle for the country. Who is the most willing to defend it.

carson said...

any comparisons to the Russian Revolution and what we are seeing/experiencing now in the US with antifa/radical left/not-so-radical left/whatever-term-we-apply-to-The Left is very much misplaced."Apples to oranguatans" at a minimum. the Russian Revolution in its purest form was a fight for personal liberty vs the complete opposite: totalitarianism - the essentially intransigent monarchy. the revolution was hijacked after the fact by the bolsheviks. what we see today with "antifa" et. al. is the opposite: the same and more "controls" from the central government at the expense of personal liberties.

Allen said...

(posted over at WC's. I shoulda posted it here..my bad)

the problem comes when antifa brings in outside help. the commie equivalent of general Von Steuben. antifa has divisions all over the world, and many of them are not as inept as out local crop of snowflakes. the other problem we have is what percentage of the US military are african american or hispanic? and how many of them are convinced by the media and their officers (those that survived the obama purges, that is) that we are rabid racists, bent on exterminating anyone who doesn’t look like us?

we may easily win a war..but will we win the war that comes after? the PR war for the hearts and minds of those that ain’t us? I haven’t seen much evidence we are even prepared for such a thing.

Jack Spadoni said...

First, I have been reading your blog for about a year now. Great stuff, keep it up. (Your posts often put a smile on my face)

Second, the patriot movement is not completely unorganized. Here in PA we have a very strong militia movement. During Antifa protests in Harrisburg, and Gettysburg, we had a very strong contingent of Light Foot, III%ers, and Oath Keepers. And in fact were recognized and thanked by LEOs, State Police and even the FBI.

Anyway, I don't fear Antifa for reasons and others.
