…which stands for “Not In My Backyard”.  The expression is usually reserved for people like the Kennedys who are all cool about wind power as long as the turbines aren’t located off the Kennedy rat’s nest compound in Martha’s Vineyard, Mass.

Today, however, we look at the term in its more positive sense.  Over at The American Thinker, Bill Gensert talks about the coming political violence when Trump gets reelected to POTUS in the 2020 election.  While what he says is quite plausible, he does utter a basic truth:

Notice there were no Antifa at Trump’s Texas rally [last week].  I wonder why?  I’m joking, I know why.  It’s because Antifa is comprised of cowardly children playing dress-up and preying on the weak.  For those with sociopathic tendencies, it’s fun to punch people who won’t punch, back but unlike in Minneapolis, Ilhan Omar’s stronghold, Texas would have slaughtered them.

Yup.  Some dweeb was arrested while wearing body armor and carrying bear spray, but word is that he was there just in case anyone from the Pantifa Brigade showed up.

It is, as they say, to LOL.  Trump’s audience at the rally was massive — people waited for over a day just to be able to get into the venue — but what was really impressive was that at least twice that number of people stayed outside the arena to hear what he was saying via loudspeakers.

I have absolutely no idea of the truth of this, but I wonder just how many of them were (legally) carrying guns?  Hours before Trump even touched down at DFW, all the local radio hosts were telling people that the place was already full;  so people knew they wouldn’t be getting into the arena but showed up anyway.  I’m willing to bet that a goodly number of the crowd outside were armed, knowing that they wouldn’t have to go through security in the streets outside.

But no Pantifa showed up in Dallas.  I don’t know whether to be relieved or disappointed.


  1. Never underestimate the Left. Not only are they prone to violence, they are proficient at it. Make fun of Antifa but now do the Bolsheviks before the Revolution or the Nazis before 1933. Or Mao or Pol Pot.

    1. Main difference between us and all those examples you quote is that they were never a nation of riflemen.

      1. It was 1917-18. Millions of combat vets from the villages self-demobilized, took their Mosins and went home. Give me a combat vet over a once a year deer hunter any time. The Bolsheviks had their own combat vets with a Mosin but not nearly as many.

  2. Well … in the 60’5 and 70’s we were still a “Nation of Riflemen”, My Prep school in the BOSTON Suburbs had their own range. and in 7th grade at the Military Academy they issued us Surplus M1’s . I don’t think that happens too much any more.

    …. and the Kennedy Compound is in Hyannis on Cape Cod not Martha’s Vineyard. The Vineyard has long been a refuge for middle Class Blacks ( That’s why Obama bought a house there instead of Nantucket ( which since the 1800’s has been very WASP. )) The other choice being one of the Elizabeth Islands off the western edge of the cape …. but those (the entire islands ) are all owned by the Forbes Family and not for sale …. particularly to the Obamas.

  3. They also only tend show up where they can count on the local law enforcement looking the other way. You know, like Austin…

    Although I recall an incident that happened a while back, I think shortly after the election, a group of Austin leftists (not yet Pantifa, but the Usual Suspects) decided to do one of their freeway blocking protests. APD had treated them pretty gently in previous instances.

    Expect the Leftist turds failed map reading and land nav, and did their thing about 100 yards OUTSIDE Austin city limits, in Travis County. Which put them in DPS territory.

    DPS don’t play around.
