Good Advice

I remember the brouhaha when Insty suggested that motorists, when faced with rioters blocking roads, simply “Run. Them. Down.”

And what should We The People do, when violent rioters and activists start threatening our food supply?

Farms, abattoirs and factories have been subjected to vandalism, and owners and staff sent death threats during an alarming increase in incidents.
But a minority of vegan campaigners want the UK to become a meat-free society and are going to extreme lengths to achieve their goal.
The National Pig Association and the British Poultry Council are among the organisations being advised by specialist police.
Leading food writer William Sitwell recently described the vitriol he faced after making a flippant comment about vegans.
“There were threats to rape my wife, tie her up and cut off her genitals,” he told this newspaper.
According to an investigation by Channel 4 Dispatches, Jewish workers were branded Nazis when members of vegan group SAVE began protesting outside kosher Kedassia abattoir in East London two years ago.
Some broke in and daubed the walls of the abattoir with anti-Semitic slogans, according to the programme, and one protester yelled: ‘It’s a holocaust. You Nazis!’
SAVE admitted on Facebook it was responsible for daubing Holocaust images, initially suggesting the use of the term was justified, but it later apologised.

Big of them.  Over Here, I’m trying to think what I’d do if I was faced with this situation at Kroger:

I’m thinking polite requests to let me through at first.  Then trying to force my through.  (This bunch of skinny malnourished twerps would not be able to offer much resistance, methinks.)

However, if they were to turn violent, or even threaten violence?  Maybe I’m over-imagining things, mind you, because I don’t see this nonsense getting much traction in the United States, and certainly not in Texas except (maybe) in Austin, where I’m willing to bet that the vegan infestation is six times that of anywhere else in the state.  And I don’t shop for food in Austin, ever.  (Hell, I hardly even visit  the place except when I’m visiting Longtime Friend Trevor.)

It strikes me that these fucking headcases are quick to threaten violence to get their own way.  Perhaps they need a quick lesson or two in real violence, just to keep them in their place in the social pecking order.

I’m not thinking of going to the guns, of course:  this situation doesn’t even come close to that course of action.  However, I do think I need to invest in a can or two of decent pepper spray.  Anyone have recommendations as to brands and / or strengths?

  1. I thought it was Kurt Schlichter who wrote that liberals think violence is a knob that can be turned up and down and to conservatives violence is a light switch. It’s either on or it’s off and when it gets turned on, the bodies start stacking up. I can’t find it (my duckduckgo-fu is weak today)

    The prog’s should be careful of getting what they are asking for.

      1. that’s it, thank you, couldn’t remember who wrote it.

        here’s the quote:

        that was for most people on the left political violence is a knob, and they can turn the heat up and down, with things like protests, and riots, all the way up to destruction of property, and sometimes murder… But for the vast majority of folks on the right, it’s an off and on switch. And the settings are Vote or Shoot Fucking Everybody. And believe me, you really don’t want that switch to get flipped, because Civil War 2.0 would make Bosnia look like a trip to Disneyworld.

    1. That is a GREAT perspective….And they should be careful, lest they find the knob turned up to 11. Or 12.

      In the mean time, I’m willing to help these tunts achieve oneness with hogs…

  2. I got my wife Saber spray. They’ve got a 3-in-1 that has pepper spray, Mace and a UV dye so the idiots can be identified later.

    They’ve also got a spray that’s a gel stream, so the wind won’t blow it back at you.

  3. I prefer a heavy cart. Make sure to put the large bag of dog food & a large bag of cat liter in the cart. Accidently hit/ram them with the cart or run over their little feet.

  4. A paddy wagon, trip down to the station, and a choice for these brave protestors: 30 days in the can, or a 2000.00 fine. Mommy and Daddy would not be amused.

  5. Do not initiate assault.
    Go around them.
    If they move to block your passage, require them to “Move.”
    If they refuse, request one more time, “Now!”
    Blocking you is assault and assaults are to be met with defensive force.
    Pantywaists fold under the impact of a punch in the face and sometimes instantly turn into freedomists.

  6. People are freaking nuts. A hunting buddy of mine who lives in Austin TX told me about a high end housing addition that went in up on the top of a hill. Often when the wind and tempreture are just right the wonderful smell of smoking meat at an old barbeque place rises to the tops of the hill and some of the new homeowners are offended by the pollution, not harmful to health, they just don’t like that wonderful Texas smell. I think a law suit was filed and have no idea what happened.

    I live in a neighborhood of Texas smokers and I don’t mean tobacco.

    1. @Old Tex – your story sounds like the idiots who move next to an airport and then complain about the noise from the jets & the smell of jet exhaust.
      This reminds me of something that happened about ten years ago in Boston. Location – the wharf where “Old Ironsides” aka the USS Constitution is moored. Navy tradition has the gun crew fire the cannon twice daily – at raising the flag in the morning & lowering the flag at dusk. Great tradition.
      Well . . . as progress would have it, some old buildings near the wharf got converted to luxury condominiums. Yuppies, with all their snow-flake sensibilities, moved in. Then they complained about the noise from the naval artillery. The Navy, and most of the neighbors told those yup-pups to go screw. One person slyly even suggested grape-shot instead of just blank powder charges. In the end, the Navy refused to back down and the snowflakes LOST.

  7. I recommend Fox Labs Mean Green H2OC. It only has a shelf life of 3 years, but the green dye is permanent meaning a perp can’t wash it off. Small canister, many shots. Only had to use it once but it put the goblin down fast and hard. Funny watching it cry before the police arrived.

  8. An important note: A lot of these worthless skinbags propagate in places that are politically friendly to their views. In other words, liberal cities like Seattle, NYC, etc. As a result, they get kid-gloves treatment from the police (to the point of the police not even enforcing the laws against them) and rarely if ever facing any consequences. If you find yourself in one of these cities, just /go/. Don’t try and start anything, because the scum have City Hall in their corner.

    So far, most of them have been smart enough not to try and start shit outside of those strongholds, since if you live in a civilized state, picking a fight could end with a skinbag in a body bag. But you never know with fanatics.

  9. Just saw this today, It’s an expandable baton, about 2″ long in your pocket, 5′ long:

    Self defense gurus recommend this spray:
    Comes with a practice spray unit. The design has a flip lid to protect the trigger button. I hear the rotate and press types have a tendency to go off in your pants pocket. Not a good thing!

  10. Should this start popping up in the U.S., I’ll be interested to see what the corporate brigade elects to do. The options run from “nothing, and hope it just sort of goes away” to “trespassing arrests and prosecution.” Somewhere in there is “the shoppers will take care of it themselves.”

    I suspect more than a few corporate futures will hinge on the enforcement of policies; if a for-profit enterprise is dependent upon money-paying customers – especially in the time value arena of food shopping – anything but a vigorous removal of impediment to productive shopping time will lead to a corporate funeral. Since metastasis of SJW practices is endemic, I’d offer that it might be prudent for supermarket HQ staff to formulate an”approved” response for its local management.

    But, to deal with our host’s original question, the Sabre 3-in-1 as mentioned above by the DMan has, in my experience, proved pretty effective, especially when followed up with application of Newton’s Second Law of Motion to achieve a status change in mass per Newton’s First Law. Pro Tip: When buying pepper spray, of any brand from any supplier, also order a pair of pepperless “training” canisters and practice with them until empty. Second Pro Tip: Take care to not mix up the training tools with the Real Stuff; while practicing with actual pepper spray is highly educational and probably not an unreasonable thing to experience once just for its informational value, attempting to dissuade a miscreant with pressurized water will not have the result you were hoping for.

  11. I’m an old man. I got this way by eating what I want, as much as I want, and most of that has been some sort of meat. If I were ever confronted with this sort of foolishness, I would ask them to let me pass as I began to move through their line. My rule: touch me and I’ll drop you.

    I might be old, but I’ve learned a few moves over the years, and I don’t have much to lose anymore.

  12. Will,
    This “Expandable Magic Metal Staff” sounds too flimsy to be used in a self defense situation. ASP and others make expandable batons that the police use. Three pieces of heavy tapered steel nested inside each other, expands with a flick of the wrist, available in various lengths. Although not as compact to carry and not five feet long deployed, they would be more durable than coiled sheet metal that I’d suspect wouldn’t survive intact beyond the first swing.

    1. Amos:
      too many states/locales make the ASP baton a crime to carry/use, unless you are anointed with le badge. The spring coil thing looks like it would make a good fake to dissuade the antifa types who didn’t see it deploy, and might not be judged to be an actual weapon by the courts.
