Antifa can’t really invade Suburbia. Here’s why…
(by Half Dollar) This rumor got started last week, and it’s picking up steam.
Particularly, I’m referring to something reported by Paul Joseph Watson and this recent article:
That’s called “hype”, or trying to seem like a bad arse, and yes, I actually watched some of the live-streams of the Minneapolis riots on Twitter and YouTube last week, in real-time, including that Unicorn Riot stream which was the source of the reporting (but I didn’t see exact part of the live-stream mentioned in the article).
Regardless, in my opinion, this is a lot of street talk, and for all we know, if people are paid to be there, paid to protest, paid to riot, or paid to whatever, then people will also be told to say “we’re coming for the suburbs!”.
Again, who knows the truth?
The truth is, it doesn’t matter.
Here’s one problem with the whole “we’re coming for the suburbs” meme: Once something happens in the very first house on the street, every other house is instantly aware.
I’m casually thinking about the last three neighborhoods I’ve owned a home in, and I’m talking about three different states too, all around the country.
In two of the three places, I would say that for every 100 homes, 98 of them have at least one firearm with the vast majority having multiple firearms.
For simplicity’s sake, let’s just assume there are four firearms per suburban home.
In the third area, I’d say the number was slightly less, but still quite high, with, call it, an average of two firearms per home.
Now, is it possible that in nanny states, such as California, there are less guns per home and per neighborhood than in my anecdotal statistical guess-work?
But the point remains the same, and it is a very big point: Nobody knows which house is the unarmed house, and picking it randomly, well, let’s just say that’s like playing Russian Roulette, only instead of one round in a six-shooter, this pistol’s a fully loaded Glock with one round chambered.
Good luck with that.
Secondly, homeowners won’t shoot to injure, they will shoot to kill.
Because dead men and dead women don’t talk.
You see, a dead home invader can’t claim she was going door-to-door selling Girl Scout Cookies, only to get shot in the leg by an angry homeowner, for no apparent reason.
Those are only two reasons off of the top of my head as to why rioters won’t be hitting small town suburbs, anyway, or at least the suburbs of Flyover America.
Since this is a sensitive topic – yes – these are my opinions, and, more specifically, my thoughts on the matter, and I am not saying “do this” or “don’t do that”, for I am only attempting to stimulate critical thinking on the matter.
But I digress.
I don’t think “Antifa” will even be rolling to the outskirts of some major cities on the Coasts.
I mean, think about it, and let’s consider a hypothetical case presented before a jury:
An Antifa rioter storms a working family, middle-class neighborhood with a hatchet, or pistol, or molotov cocktail, or whatever, only to be shot dead upon intrusion by the home owner who was scared for his life and the lives of his wife and children.
So even if it did come to that, would a jury convict a person on some manslaughter charge under those circumstances?
I doubt it.
Therefore, will the suburbs burn to the ground?
Well, It seems to me that there is still much more city to burn.
Furthermore, it is all of America that is collapsing, because this collapse is really about the collapse of our unbacked, debt-based Unconstitutional fiat currency dependent on parabolic, unsustainable exponential growth, so Suburban America is collapsing too, only, it’s not collapsing at the same rate of speed in which other urban areas are.
Said differently, your mileage may vary.
