LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Police near Atlanta are investigating an attack on a group of women as they protested on an interstate overpass and carried signs calling for President Barack Obama's impeachment.

The women told police they were demonstrating on the Steve Reynolds Boulevard overpass in Gwinnett County on Saturday, when a man pulled up beside them. They said he pointed a gun at one of them and splashed another with an unknown liquid.

Controlled, protected, incited, and weaponized

abetted by the greedy, whoring, stealing, self-immune,
self-indulgent, accommodatingly treasonous, US Congress.

Good thing there was no physical description of the assailants.

We wouldn’t want them to get caught or suffer repercussions.

I'd recommend that they have video cameras running continuously recording traffic both coming and going.

If anyone tries that again they will have both the individuals face, vehicle description and tag numbers.

Only real question will be, will the police do anything with the evidence?

The women say they plan to hold another protest Saturday at the same spot.

Then they should arm themselves with at the very least some pepper spray or better yet...

This is not particularly complected folks...

When organizing protests like this include a couple of hidden cameras on remote. Police tend to catch libs faster when the plate number and attack are on Youtube.

Also, cops arresting protesters tend to drop charges faster when Youtube shows the only lawbreakers were them.

I keep a can of that nasty stuff in the truck. Never know when I might encounter some pesky insects. And there’s likely to be far less paperwork than if I have to go to Plan B (aka “CCW”).

I will say this, if these women’s husband[s] let them to go out there again without them, they are not men. They are metrosexual males. If they do not have a husband, then a male relative should go. It may just be me, but I will defend my wife and children to the uttermost.

You better watch out. With that one post, they could convict you with conspiracy to commit a federal crime: using a product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling. Wasp spray is not defensive pepper spray. Using it that way will get you fined or indicted for a federal crime.

You see, they have laws that anyone can break for a reason. There's always a way to convict us.

To borrow from Atlas Shrugged:

"Did you really think we want those laws observed?" said Dr. Ferris. "We want them to be broken. You'd better get it straight that it's not a bunch of boy scouts you're up against... We're after power and we mean it... There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What's there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted – and you create a nation of law-breakers – and then you cash in on guilt. Now that's the system, Mr. Reardon, that's the game, and once you understand it, you'll be much easier to deal with."

- Ayn Rand, 1957-

GA Ping List ping.

Brandishing a gun at anti-Obama protestors is likely to lead to a gunbattle, would be my take on things. This isn’t NY. There are a LOT of concealed carry licenses out there. Based on some quick calculations using numbers from GACarry.org and Wikipedia, 5.6% of adults in GA have a concealed carry license.

Yes, and it’s happening here. All of these “spontaneous random” acts of thuggery are instigated amongst one group. They attack with impunity, in broad daylight and in public. They’re rarely caught or prosecuted, and when they are, the consequences are inconsequential. They’re given no publicity and no pattern is pointed out, as it would be if a rash of white “teens” were perpetrating this upon random minorities. They know they’re protected, or they wouldn’t have the gall to post videos of their own crimes for the world to see. One “teen”, after a beating a man into unconsciousness, went back into the convenience store where it happened, shouted statements of victory and pumped his fist, and went back outside for a few final kicks to the victim’s head.

Unless possession is de facto evidence of its misuse, I'll take my chances.

Personally, I have the pepper spray and the paper necessary to carry it. My wasp spray suggestion was for those who don't and would need something simpler in case they were 'in fear for their life'.

Plus, if their husbands had a single hair on their collective arses, they'd be accompanying their wives to the bridge next time, obviating the need for any chemical response. A short piece of 1/2" conduit "found on the side of the road" would suffice.

“Before the Nazis came to power, they were using thugs on the streets too.”

They came to power because those thugs were the “law & order” that was lacking in Weimar Germany; the country was faced with a communist uprising, and chose the socialists instead. The Nazis rise to power has to be seen through the prism of the rise of communism in western Europe through the 1920s and 30s; when people felt the very right to private property was about to be outlawed, they were quite willing to support anyone who would oppose the communists. The communists themselves represented the most useless, unproductive, and envious citizens, which is why they lost in Germany, Italy, Spain, and Portugal.

There wasn't a nickel's difference between the Communists and the Nazis.

From my FR profile page, a nice passage by an educated contemporaneous observer of the time:

Although our modern socialists' promise of greater freedom is genuine and sincere, in recent years observer after observer has been impressed by the unforeseen consequences of socialism, the extraordinary similarity in many respects of the conditions under "communism" and "fascism." As the writer Peter Drucker expressed it in 1939, "the complete collapse of the belief in the attainability of freedom and equality through Marxism has forced Russia to travel the same road toward a totalitarian society of un-freedom and inequality which Germany has been following. Not that communism and fascism are essentially the same. Fascism is the stage reached after communism has proved an illusion, and it has proved as much an illusion in Russia as in pre-Hitler Germany."

No less significant is the intellectual outlook of the rank and file in the communist and fascist movements in Germany before 1933. The relative ease with which a young communist could be converted into a Nazi or vice versa was well known, best of all to the propagandists of the two parties. The communists and Nazis clashed more frequently with each other than with other parties simply because they competed for the same type of mind and reserved for each other the hatred of the heretic. Their practice showed how closely they are related. To both, the real enemy, the man with whom they had nothing in common, was the liberal of the old type. While to the Nazi the communist and to the communist the Nazi, and to both the socialist, are potential recruits made of the right timber, they both know that there can be no compromise between them and those who really believe in individual freedom.

-- F.A. Hayek, The Road to Serfdom

Of course, "the liberal of the old type" that Hayek refers to, we would refer to as a conservative. In the U.S., "liberal" has been bastardized and co-opted by our socialists who have run from accurate nomenclature regarding their political philosophy.

There was one large difference: national socialism (with the racial overtones and a more local outlook) versus world socialism (with class overtones and a global outlook).

Hitler never thought he would dominate the world; his whole military was centered around European conflicts. Stalin intended to spread communism around the globe, and he and his successors succeeded.

WHAT!

This occurred in Georgia! Georgia has CCW permits.

Why weren’t those women armed?

That Drive-by Thug shudda been shot, IMHO, because his actions posed a reasonable threat of death or serious injury and could have been shot.

He was attempting to violate a citizen’s Constitution guaranteed rights and so doing with a firearm and dangerous chemicals.

Anyone going anywhere without being able to defend themselves is taking an easily avoidable risk.

Wrap yourself in the Second Amendment and then you need fear no one.
