Shots fired in the Capital: What next?
By Wayne Allensworth
Whatever else happened in DC today, the Stop the Steal rally resulted in the fatal shooting of a female Trump supporter, who was part of a group that forced its way into the capital building.
Here are some things we need to keep in mind:
First, as Steve Sailer reminded us, the left has staged similar actions before, with little reaction from law enforcement.
Second, the events in DC will likely be used as a pretext to impose further censorship on the patriotic right and tighten the grip of what I call “the globalist Blob” on all of us. The MSM cast the BLM/Antifa riots as “mostly peaceful protests”—the people who showed up in DC today to angrily protest the rigged election will be condemned as a violent mob.
Third, “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.” As I’ve noted previously, politics are over in what used to be our country. The powers-that-be have excused and encouraged violence against our people, making further violence inevitable.
And fourth, there is an as yet unorganized and undirected Middle American resistance out there. Mass participation in the Stop the Steal rallies has shown that our people can be mobilized, but they need organizers and coordinators at the state and local level—that’s where battles that we can win could be fought. Disparate patriotic groups could form a resistance network. We need to face the reality that national elections will not save us. The aim now is to defend ourselves and salvage something for our posterity, hopefully carving out enclaves where we can live our lives as we see fit.
Do not be taken in by the political show being staged by some GOP luminaries, such as Ted Cruz: Remember that in 2016, Cruz portrayed the violent attacks on Trump supporters at campaign rallies as Trump’s fault.
This will be a long battle. Hopefully, our people will have the determination, will, and wisdom to fight it.
