Maintaining Civility in the Face of Political Violence (Strategy)
IWB ^ | Daniel Carter

Posted on 07/02/2018 6:01:26 AM PDT by davikkm

In the year and a half since Donald Trump swore in to become President of the United States, the political climate has gone from bad to downright hostile. Every week seems to bring about a new issue that drives people into deeper and deeper hysteria. It may only be a matter of time before our country is torn apart by another civil war.

Over the past few weeks, the mainstream media has whipped the masses into a frenzy over the country’s immigration policies. Illegal immigrant families are being separated at the border when they are processed to be sent back home. This policy, which clearly predates the Trump administration, has leftists in a moral panic and screaming “Nazi!” It even has Congresswoman Maxine Waters telling people to form mobs and “push back” on people who work for the Trump administration.

Another media source talking civil war. Something’s fishy here.

Civility? Fuggedabadit.

Do you think Maxine Waters and her ilk are going to be civil?

The GOP has been dominated by pussies for too long. We conservative Americans finally have a tough SOB in Trump to lead us into this battle.

The Left knows this and they are going crazy.

My son has been seeing reports on social media (GAB, not Twitter) that the Antifa scum has brain damage, possibly hemorrhaging, from the incident. He could even die.

I’d like to see that confirmed.

If true, we should have a moment of silence for the scum. That’s because it is poor form to pump one’s fist while saying “Yes!” over the misfortunes of a scumbag and you need the silence to regain that self control.

Mexico has been an aggressor country toward the U.S. for many years. With Obregon just elected down there it will just get worse. He is an America-hater. Through the mechanism of a broken border, and acting as a sieve for the entire population of Central and South America to migrate to the U.S., the upper ruling class of Mexico is effectively setting U.S. immigration policy all on its own. That country just keeps ramping up the financial and cultural assault upon the U.S. taxpayers and middle class. The U.S. needs to stop self-flagellating and declare war on its enemies. Give them one chance to save face. Then, when the U.S. military has done its work, and the example has been set, illegal immigration as we know it will cease.

Or worse!

Like I would believe something that ANTIFA would post. They are worse than the Palis.

The ANTIFA punk was swatting him with a wooden rod. She was asking him why he's so angry.

I'd say the gentleman who put down the punk showed quite a bit of restraint.

She attacked him - he could have. He showed restraint. If she continued to attack or brandished a weapon, I could see him more actively defending himself from her.

The side that maintains peace and civility the longest will gain a huge advantage, especially if the situation escalates to war.

nope. Use force to nip violence in the bud before it gets out of control.

Don't.

As my dad used to say, don't start anything but always finish it.

Being civil to the violent only encourages them, they will continue to escalate until we are playing with lives at stake.

Excellent GIF. I see the good guy defending himself had the forethought to wear some kind of arm pads so the stick or rod had no effect on him but his right hook sure had an affect on the antifa thug.

Good stuff!

For context on this excellent gif, at about 7:33 on the video, the thug who gets punched uses his baton to hit a man who is already down. The haymaker is even more beautiful when you see how much this pathetic coward deserved it.

Just before your gif starts, the Antifa terrorist uses his baton to strike a man who is already down, hitting him in the head. That makes this beatdown even sweeter - the baton strike was a cowardly and evil action by a domestic terrorist. The girl in black? She's an Antifa leader, subtly directing others in a lot of that day's video, and she is there to provoke something that will look good in Antifa propaganda. She tries to reclaim the dropped baton, but this guy handled it perfectly. If the terrorist dies from his injuries, I'm okay with that.
