The World Is Holding Its Breath

Pretty solid quote from Claire Wolfe:

"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards."

From 101 Things to Do 'Til the Revolution (1996)

Sure that quote is from 1996 so it has been awhile but in the grand scheme of things that isn't that long.

This seems to capture where a lot of people are. When you read online, even over the last few years since Trump was elected, what you are seeing is people growing more radicalized as they realize things are coming to a head. The reality of demographic changes, the realization that the Deep State is so embedded like a tick on a dog that it can't be dislodged politically and was even involved in a more or less open attempted coup, the dawning understanding that most of the significant institutions in America are openly hostile to heritage America, are all working together to increase the temperature. You can sense the tension online, it is palpable and getting more open. Maybe it will fizzle out, maybe not. At some point if the Left oversteps too quickly, you could see the balance shift away from "I don't want to get in trouble" to "I don't care anymore". Gun confiscation seems to me to be the most dangerous trigger and it looks like virtually every Democrat has some plans for that, by executive order if nothing else, if they win in 2020.

The time is growing short.

    It's a good time over there.

    I think that most of them (nationally) will think that confiscation is a bridge too far. Maybe not, but I think they'll treat it like the Right treats abortion, yell, jump, scream, but don't do anything.

    The state governments, however . . .
