(Bugout.news) We are about to enter into a long, hot summer of discontent, so the best thing you could do for yourself and your family is to begin preparing for it now.
As Breitbart News reported this week, there has been little mainstream media coverage of what is brewing, but make no mistake – it is.
The same radical, Left-wing groups responsible for organizing the protest that shut down GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump’s University of Illinois campaign rally in Chicago last week are planning a mass civil disobedience movement that is set to kick off in April. The intent is to involve masses of people to march up and down the East Coast with the objective of sparking a “fire that transforms the political climate in America.”
Pretty ominous, considering most who are familiar with Marxist community organizing in the mold of our current president know what the language means – transforming the political climate into one of chaos and revolution.
Even the name of the operation – “Democracy Spring” – is hypocritical, for those hired guns who will do the “protesting” are so filled with hate they can’t even fathom their own hypocrisy is shutting down a man’s right to campaign and to speak. Some “democracy.”
Promising theirs will be the “largest civil disobedience action of the century,” these radicals are anticipating that thousands of their own will wind up behind bars at some point.
“We will demand that Congress listen to the People and take immediate action to save our democracy. And we won’t leave until they do — or until they send thousands of us to jail,” the website for Democracy Spring declares, using rhetoric from the “Occupy” movement.
The movement is backed by several Leftist organizations including MoveOn.org, which is funded in part by billionaire George Soros, the Institute for Policy Studies and Demos, Breitbart News reported.
MoveOn.org has been dominant in organizing anti-Trump activism, including last week’s shutdown of Trump’s Chicago rally.
And while Democracy Spring is stating that its protestors won’t incite violence or destroy any propoerty, we saw how that worked out in Chicago: It wasn’t Trump supporters doing the violent protesting there, it was Left-wing Trump detractors, as former U.S. representative and retired Army Lt. Col. Allen West noted on his blog.
The Left has a violent history of protest, because Leftist organizations have always fomented straw men and anger among key demographics. In the case of Trump his supporters are angry, too, but at being left out of the political process by a party many have supported for decades; Trump has tapped into that anger, he hasn’t created it.
The point is, there is a great deal of angst on both sides in this election, causing many to become agitated and animated enough to actually participate in the election process this time around. And with more protesting being planned, it’s quite possible that it can – and will – get out of hand at some point over the summer, especially if Trump goes on to actually win the Republican nomination. He is as successful of generating disgust and hatred as he is at generating unyielding, unmitigated support, given his campaign style.
Pile on top of this anger the seething resentment tens of millions of Americans have felt towards President Obama’s famous liberalism for nearly eight years, and it won’t take much this summer for some people to completely lose their minds.
Are you ready? Are you prepared?
While you may have no intentions of attending a political rally, the unrest that such rallies may unleash will eventually spread throughout our cities; protests and violence completely unrelated to campaign events, but fomented by them, can crop up anywhere, there is that much anger out there. So you need to take this pledge by Democracy Spring seriously – enough so to make plans to protect yourself and your family, and ride out any social unrest or societal breakdown.
That will include:
— Stocking up on additional food
— Storing plenty of water
— Securing your home
— Keeping enough spare fuel for a generator and/or portable heating device
— Paying more attention to the news of the day
— Taking a bugout bag with you to and from work, also keeping one in your car when you are out and about running errands
— Getting in some extra range time
— Being extra alert and vigilant
Some say we should do these things all the time, to always be ready, and that is true, but we all know that sometimes we let our guard down somewhat. This summer will not be a time to do that, if these protest groups make good on their promise to block more of Trump’s events.
