Tucker Carlson Antifa Riot Hints Cuba’s Campaign to Export Mob Attacks Is Succeeding
Breitbart ^ | 10 Nov, 2018 | Frances Martel

Posted on 11/10/2018 9:44:32 AM PST by MtnClimber

The mob attack on Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s home this week by radical Marxists – leaving his home with a broken door and vandalized with leftist slogans – has triggered widespread shock on the part of most decent Americans. For those aware of the way “Antifa” elements operate internationally, however, the incident was nothing new.

Pro-democracy and right-leaning political activists, journalists, and artists 90 miles from our shores, fighting for their rights in communist Cuba, have faced similar mob attacks on their homes for years. Unlike the Carlson incident, in Cuba, the government actively organizes the mobs. The riots are so common they have a name: actos de repudio, or “acts of repudiation.”

In the past several years, since dictator Raúl Castro took over for late dictator brother Fidel, Cuba has endeavored to export the practice of actos de repudio, attacking the presence of dissidents at international summit events, violently beating them in public on foreign soil, and even using mob behavior to silence American diplomats at the United Nations.

I believe if a mob busts your door, you should be fear for your life, and act appropriately to defend yourself.

Right, the anarchists and communists used to fight but the communists won. If you want to be an anarchist, you have to follow communist orders!

At some point, if these assaults on peace and property continue, one of these law abiding citizens who is armed is liable do what they feel is necessary to protect their home and family.

And when they do...

But why did they hit Tucker right after he helped them in the elections?

This won’t end until they kick in the wrong door and there’s a dozen bodies piled up in the front yard.

Tucker was doing his best to suppress the republican vote by throwing out hints that the dems were winning. This was hours before the polls closed.

If a few people who are legitimately be threatened with serious physical harm shoot some of these bastards, this stuff will stop very quickly.

This ain’t new and it’s not from Cuba. The left (communists) have always used this tactic. It’s to cause fear and intimidation.

The French Revolution was a mob. The Russian revolution was a mob. The Iranian revolution was a mob. Even Hitler came to power because of the mob

Yes, one would agree, that the act of trying to bust thru someone's front door would morally justify putting at least one bullet thru the door in defense. (Not thru the exact middle of the door, one would think... maybe more like about 4' high and at about the two-thirds point between the hinge side and the latch side...)

That's a moot point however, as the law in (probably) all states requires that one wait until they've actually busted the door down and have made entry into one's home before opening fire on them.

Not saying that's right, just saying that's the way it is.

Law enforcement needs to throw huge nets over the mobsters, tighten the straps, and leave the mobsters in the street for a couple of days.

“Yeah unfortunately gun laws are tougher in Va”

Lifelong Virginian here.

Several months ago I was talking to the Sheriff about such a scenario.
He gave the following advice:
1. Have a firearm
2. Keep it loaded
3. When needed fire until you run out of ammo or targets.

Virginia is an open carry state with pretty lenient requirements for concealed carry.
A former Marine who does the training for concealed carry permits told me that if you have a clean criminal record and are intelligent enough to chew gum and walk at the same time the state will issue a CCP.

I don’t see any widespread shock by anyone other than some Fox news people. Even the police dont seem to give a F***. Have any arrests been made? Did they even show up?
