We’re now over two months into the Biden administration.
In anticipation of a widely expected “insurgency” which never materialized, the Democrats built a razor wire fence around the U.S. Capitol and mobilized the National Guard to occupy Washington, DC. The QAnon invasion which was predicted to happen on March 4th never came to pass. Instead, a black “insurrectionist” who was a follower of Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam showed up and attacked Capitol Police and killed a While male police officer. In spite of this disconnect between media panic and reality, Democrats continue to use counterinsurgency language and compare the United States to Iraq and Afghanistan and America’s benign militia movement to the likes of ISIS or al-Qaeda.
“Bleeding Kansas began with an eviction attempt. In late 1854, Jacob Branson, an abolitionist from Ohio, started trying to kick Franklin Coleman, a slavery proponent, off his property. Roughly a year later, Coleman ran into a friend of Branson’s at a local blacksmith’s shop. The friend berated Coleman for continuing to squat on the land and demanded that he desist. It’s not clear what, if anything, Coleman said in response. But it is clear what he did. As the friend walked away, Coleman took out a gun and killed him.
Fearing reprisal in what was a largely antislavery community, Coleman fled to a nearby town and turned himself in to a proslavery sheriff. That sheriff promptly freed him and then arrested Branson. Local abolitionists, many of whom were already furious about the murder, grew incensed. They intercepted the sheriff at gunpoint and liberated his prisoner. …
For counterinsurgency forces, fighting a dispersed network poses special challenges. A clearly defined enemy can certainly surprise, but if it has a stated agenda and staked territory, there are known battle lines. When the opponent is a collection of groups with differing aims, there is an especially wide range of targets. In the United States, those targets include some obvious marks—Democratic politicians, Republicans who won’t help steal elections, Black churches, synagogues, shopping centers popular with immigrants. But antigovernment extremists could also select targets that are more idiosyncratic. Investigators have speculated that the Nashville man who blew up his van near an AT&T facility in December 2020 may have been inspired by conspiracies about 5G technology. In February 2021, a group of anti-vaccine protestors temporarily shut down a mass vaccination facility. The next such demonstration might not be conducted peacefully. …”
Joe Biden’s America is not “Jim Crow on steroids.”
Joe Biden’s America is not the Reconstruction South.
Joe Biden’s America is not Bleeding Kansas in the 1850s.
Joe Biden’s America hasn’t produced a Ruby Ridge, Waco or Oklahoma City.
Joe Biden’s America is nothing like the Taliban in Afghanistan or ISIS in Syria and Iraq.
As we saw last week, most of the people who have been charged with trespassing over the Capitol Siege are not even likely to go to jail because the “insurrection” was nothing more than a hysterical media narrative. The vast majority of the people who went inside the Capitol on January 6th did not engage in violence. Baked Alaska ran inside the capitol to chase content for his livestream audience. “White supremacists” are actually underrepresented among the people who have been arrested over the Capitol Siege because the vast majority of them were ordinary Trump supporters.
While the “insurgency” has proven to be nonexistent, the Biden administration’s mounting assault on the civil liberties of populist voters who supported Donald Trump has been proven to be real. American troops in the U.S. Army and U.S. Navy don’t understand why there are now social justice commissars in charge of policing what they can say and read on social media on their own time who also insist that Black Lives Matter is not an extremist group and that it is a legitimate organization. We’re told that the closest thing that we have seen to an actual nationwide insurgency in our lifetimes in which Antifa and Black Lives Matter sacked a police station in Minneapolis, laid siege to a federal courthouse and seized territory and declared their sovereignty in Portland and Seattle WAS NOT an insurgency. The Biden administration has no interest in bringing the people responsible for that real insurgency to justice and has chosen instead to demonize Patriot groups which haven’t engaged in violence.
It is true that there is a growing populist movement in this country. That’s because millions of people can see that the political establishment is divorced from reality and menacing their rights and liberties.
