- Basic Beliefs
Let’s see if they have the chutzpah to actually do it. Their best chance was Jan 6th, when Trump was still in power and they had the element of surprise, and yet not a single one of them fired a shot. Not a single of their bombs went off.
Are they even organized? Who are their generals? Where are their targets?
Won’t be so much a civil war as isolated uprisings and they’ll be facing actual trained and armed military and national guard.
They should put up or shut up because I would like to see them come out into the open and get this over with.
Do not make assumptions about the leadership of organizations such as the National Guard. A poor leader need only hint at his political leanings to affect how his troops will respond. All law enforcement should be apolitical and professional in their duties but I think it would be naive to think this will be the case.
Further, we do not know at what point they would even be ordered to respond. My observation going back as far as the Bundy’s is to let them tucker themselves out depending on what exactly they are doing.
Would a right leaning sheriff in Smalltown, USA tolerate civilian militia conducting traffic stops? Maybe for awhile. Would left leaning city leadership prevent law enforcement from doing their duty in a timely manner so as not to appear heavy- handed? I think we already know the answer to this.
This will happen by degree. They will probe and test to see what they can get away with.
But they are not going away. They have been underestimated since the formation of the Tea Party.
They may not all take up arms but they will have the support of no small part of the country.
Well, if they were given jobs with a decent wage, that would put an end to all this. But we all know that’s unlikely to happen.
