Quote Of The Day

From Brandon Morse:

Riots are popping up in cities over the murder of George Floyd, completely overshadowing the legitimate protests containing peaceful people making a valid point. Some of these rioters, namely those belonging to the group “Antifa,” have mentioned that they’re going to leave the cities and move their destruction and violence into the suburbs.
Rioting in a city is, for all intents and purposes, safe for the rioter. Even if you do have a confrontation with police, you’re more than likely going to get a few bumps and bruises. At worst, some blood might be drawn from superficial wounds.

The rules change in the suburbs. You’re not robbing a private store and destroying public property anymore. Now you’re in home territory. The house is full of valuable possessions and luxuries, yes, but more than that, this location has family members in it.
You’re far more likely to die in the suburbs than in the city in this situation. You may think moving the riots into neighborhoods is going to play out the same way. It’s not. You’re at a massive tactical disadvantage. The residents know these streets, the layout of their homes, and the defense capabilities of their residence and themselves.
You don’t. Each home will be different, each resident will have different approaches, and each home may have more than one or two gun wielders inside. The goal isn’t non-violent control of the situation now. It’s not about tear gas and high-pressure hoses now. Now it’s deadly force. You can’t just wash a bullet wound out and keep going.

In the city, you were the pack of lions seeking whom you may devour. In the burbs, you’re the gazelle.

What these little shits don’t realize is that among the crowds of “Internet tough guys” (like me) are also some genuine tough guys — and the toughest are likely to be the quietest, the ones nobody knows about.

But hey, Pantifa/BLM:  give it a go anyway.  Let’s see how it works for you.  And by the way:  our suburban cops aren’t the pussified ones you face in the city.  These are some serious rednecks who, in all likelihood, will ignore the fact that homeowners, in many cases their actual neighbors, are shooting you in the face.  They may even join in the fun.

Stick to the cities, assholes.

Oh, and by the way:  this shit?

Red dots show up real well on that.


  1. I’d just like to add: If they want to move the riots out past the suburbs to where I live, it just gets worse.

    A lot of the good old boys out here not only have a plan to deal with rioters, they’ve been dreaming about it for years. They talk about it every time they see riots on TV.

  2. I suspect the organized leadership and there is organized leadership understands what will happen in the outlying suburbs and smaller towns. At some point I do fear they will send a bunch of uninformed rioters out to get them killed and kick it up a notch. If that happens the rules will be different for sure.

    1. I suspect you’re right. The Antifa leadership is itching to get a few of their cannonfodder killed, and use that a justification to “kick it up a notch.” Those cannonfodder will be kids; the younger the better. And when they’re killed breaking into homes, the compliant media will raise holy hell about the “injustice” of a young life being killed over “property.” Completely ignoring, of course, the family inside the home.
      The reaction to those kids being killed will not matter in court. It is the court of public opinion and media attention that matters; a homeowner wrung through the legal wringer, even if he is ultimately vindicated, will make it much less likely that other homeowners will risk defending their homes with deadly force. That’s the point. They’ll either cower in fear, or move.
      The right answer, of course, is that the defenders of their homes must not even be charged. But in our legal system, that’s problematic; we have too many prosecutors who are anti self-defense, anti gun, and see these prosecutions as a political tool to rise in prominence. Remember the political prosecution of George Zimmerman.

      1. What amuses me is that these politicians and prosecutors think that when the Red Rage finally explodes, they’ll somehow be immune from “Kill everybody”.

      2. What if: no news cameras around? The bodies of the rioters/looters in the suburbs/rural areas just disappear?

        There’s an old term: “Shoot, shovel, and shut up”.

        1. Drones, cell phone cameras, all kinds of ways of ensuring the events are recorded, and uploaded in real time to servers you can’t get to.

          1. I can have a cell phone sticking out of a shirt pocket recording as I go. I’m sure the edited footage will make the air.

            Folks, you are operating under a surveillance environment. Either plan accordingly or expect to get caught.

  3. Saw a photo posted on twitter of many armed small-town folks congregating.

    The caption said that it was the populace of Snohomish, WA who’d been tipped off that rioters were planning a “demonstration” in their town in order to bring “rural America into it,” but that the “protesters” couldn’t even get out of their cars when they arrived.

    Could just be a random photo and a made-up caption, but… I like to believe it.

  4. Indeed. A Colin County jury is far, far different than a Dallas County jury. (Also, a Northern District of Texas jury is a lot more like a Colin Co jury than a Dallas Co jury.)

    1. My old roommate from West Point is a County Commissioner in Collin County – Darrell Hale. He’s a good man and a rock solid conservative. He’s a small business owner, not a career politician. If he’s typical of Collin County leadership, then you’re in a good area.

      1. Hale is a very good man. I remember voting for him, I think, but to be honest, his opponents were of similar ilk.

        1. Glad you think so, Kim. I know how seriously he takes his responsibilities to his community.

  5. Looters broke into a Cabela’s and a Walmart in Marysville, Washington. If they’re trying to acquire guns & ammunition, it’s going to be a bloody summer. I fear it will be, anyway. The people responsible for promoting the coming violence need to be hung in public.

  6. Where can I get an enigma decoder so I can read the fourth and fifth reply to a comment?

    1. I don’t know which is worse; un-threaded comments which make it difficult to follow discussions, or threaded comments, which turn a ten-word response into a thirty-line column of single letters.

  7. It might be fun to “paint” them with a laser pointer just to watch them freak out wondering who’s targeting them.
    Nothing illegal about a laser pointer.
