Survivalists know that widespread civilizational breakdown is a possibility.
One catastrophic event could ignite the powder keg that throws major cities into chaos.
Now one leftist terrorist serves as a reminder that it’s time to get practical about self-defense.
The United States is currently engaged in a culture war.
It feels like the soul of America is at stake.
On one side, Donald Trump is fighting to preserve the ideals that make America the freest and most prosperous country in the world.
On the left, we’re seeing ascendant radicals overtaking the Democrat Party and intent on tearing down the Constitution.
These radicals are openly socialist and communist, something that would’ve been unthinkable for a mainstream politician just five years ago.
But now the far-left is in charge of the Democrat Party with their militant wing known as ‘Antifa.’
The self-proclaimed “anti-fascist” group is actually a loose connection of violent communists intent on bringing about a revolution by any means necessary.
And sadly, they have numerous allies within the government and the media.
After weeks of incitement by Democrat Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her cohorts calling ICE detention facilities concentration camps, a deranged Antifa member attacked an illegal alien facility in Tacoma, Washington.
Antifa terrorist Willem van Spronsen went to the facility armed with a rifle and incendiary devices.
He firebombed vehicles and tried to ignite a propane tank before police officers shot and killed him in self-defense.
But even more terrifying than this terrorist attack was the left’s predictable response.
The liberal media dragged their feet on covering the attack.
They didn’t even seem curious about the fact that he left a manifesto espousing his lifelong commitment to communism.
This violent attack came on the heels of Antifa thugs beating up independent journalist Andy Ngo in Portland.
The media was slow to report on that story as well.
Some outlets gave half-hearted coverage, while others tacitly excused the attack because they deemed Ngo a conservative (even though he’s a centrist).
Ngo is gay and the child of Vietnamese immigrants, which would normally give him a lot of currency with the left, but because he reports on the craziness of liberals, he’s fair game for assault.
During the savage beating of Ngo, he was also attacked with a milkshake laced with cement.
Throwing milkshakes at conservatives has become a trend among the left.
They think it’s funny, but the left’s endorsement of the activity only begets bolder violence, which is exactly what we’re seeing.
It’s scary to think that the attack on the ICE facility may only be the beginning.
It wouldn’t take much to bring on full-scale riots in the streets.
That’s why you should be prepared to defend yourself if the rule of law breaks down.
Make sure you’re able to defend yourself and your family, because the liberal politicians and their allies in the media are all too eager to exacerbate the political rift in the country.
They’ll do anything for political power even if it means throwing oblique support to a violent communist terrorist.
