A Serious Question For ‘Armed Patriots’
By George Rasley | Conservative HQ | September 13, 2020
Anyone who follows the growing evidence that Democrats and the Far Left plan an insurrection, not an election, will eventually come across a post on social media that says something like, “bring it on, conservatives and MAGA supporters have all the guns.”
And while it is true that there’s plenty of evidence that the vast majority of gun owners support President Trump, and the traditional American view of constitutional liberty under God’s laws, it is certainly not true that “conservatives have all the guns.”
Leftist gun clubs have been on the rise, and organizations like the Socialist Rifle Association, Huey P. Newton Gun Club, Trigger Warning Queer & Trans Gun Club, Puget Sound John Brown Gun Club and other chapters of the John Brown Gun Club have successfully trained and armed radical Leftists.
According to the Daily Beast, in Seattle, John Brown Gun Club members have generally been showing up on an individual basis, rather than as part of a coordinated campaign. However, the group was tapped to provide a security escort for “some very prominent black voices” who were doing speeches at the now defunct Seattle Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone.
And these armed Leftists are not just limited to the radical urban areas of the west coast.
Mawa Iqbal, reporting for flatlandkc.org, says the mid-Missouri chapter of the John Brown Gun Club, which styles itself as an armed, left-leaning social justice group is based in Columbia, Missouri. Unlike most left-leaning groups, though, gun ownership is central to its strategy.
The mid-Missouri chapter of the John Brown Gun Club was founded in August 2017 in response to President Donald Trump’s inauguration, and long-predates the 2020 riots. The Russell, Kansas John Brown Gun Club went live in late June of 2020 and now counts 33 members. They have since co-organized a Black Lives Matter rally with about 75 people in attendance and organized multiple range days for members to practice using their firearms.
But all of this testosterone-fueled firearms talk on the Far Left belies the reality of how Democrats and their Far Left allies plan to oust President Donald Trump when he wins reelection.
In his “It’s the Ballgame” memo to the conservative movement, CHQ Chairman Richard A Viguerie made the case that the future of our constitutional republic hangs in the balance in the 2020 election. In his article “America Slides into a New Civil War” David Franke reviewed today’s political situation and made the case that a pent-up political bubble has burst and revolution in the form of civil war has come to America, and in “Unconventional Warfare – The Democrat Plan To Oust Trump” we outlined the likely initial Phase Lines and tactics the Left will use in that civil war.
None of those articles suggest that the Left is going to shoot it out in the streets with the US military or conservative defenders of the existing constitutional order. As we see it, the Left will use extra-constitutional assaults on the election process and massive civil unrest to intimidate weak decisionmakers, like Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, into bending to their will.
“Insurrection and Violence – A Citizen’s Guide” from our friends at www.unconstrainedanalytics.org assembles information from experienced and proven analysts on intelligence, crime, politics, revolutionary warfare, history, survival, and trauma medicine to provide citizens with information on how to assess and mitigate their risk during the violence expected in the aftermath of Election Day.
“Insurrection and Violence – A Citizen’s Guide” will equip you with many important tools for the work and dangers ahead, but perhaps the book’s most important contribution to surviving and defeating the coming revolutionary unrest is in the Chapter 2 analysis of the current situation which explains who constitutes the enemy in this civil war.
As the authors explain, it is not just BLM, ANTIFA or criminal gangs, we are under attack by an ‘insurgency syndicate’ employing unconventional warfare tactics. And this North American Insurgency Syndicate (NAIS) is currently gaining strength and they are on the offensive.
You can read a first hand account of the effectiveness of NAIS command and control through this link.
You can also read a first hand account of how it was operationalized against a conservative citizen journalist in the recent BLM action in Georgetown, DC through this link.
The point of this chapter-length analysis is to increase your “situational awareness.” The book describes the current situation in the United States – that we are at a critical point where the NAIS is successfully exploiting a national emergency to rapidly gain strength. The authors provide a synopsis of the various and disparate insurgent organizations and movements that are involved in direct-action violence, harassment, agitation, and social media attacks.
Then the authors explore the syndicate structure. At the tactical level, the NAIS relies upon self-organizing groups of insurgents united for insurrection. The syndicate, waging unconventional warfare with new and innovative tactics, intends to change or overthrow the government.
Once one absorbs all this information, the armed patriot is left with this troubling question: Who is there to fight? If you are in Portland, Seattle, LA or one of the other cancerous lesions on our polity governed by Democrats you might certainly find it necessary to defend your life, your family or your home. But what if the Left turns out a million people to riot in front of the Supreme Court, and you live in East Overshoe, Ohio where everything is absolutely normal the day after the election?
Conservatives, MAGA patriots and people who just want to maintain the existing constitutional order may have the vast majority of the guns, but what is inescapably apparent is that the Left’s ‘insurgency syndicate’ has an effective system of command and control of their forces, and patriots have little to none. Leaving us to ask our fellow armed patriots, who is in charge of the counter-revolution, and how do you plan to get in touch with them?
