…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.
