We need to be prepared to deal with home invaders, street criminals, rioters and — after a crisis hits — looters and scavengers. Now there’s a new threat that needs to be considered; heavily armed far-left militias seeking an “armed struggle” against society.
- Far Left Watch recently reported that “the recent spike in political violence has come overwhelmingly from the Left. Even more concerning is the growth of far-left organizations openly advocating ‘armed struggle,’ especially considering the targeted shooting of Republican Majority Whip Steve Scalise and three others by a deranged left-wing activist.”
- A leading far-left militia is Redneck Revolt, which claims to have 30 branches already and is growing fast. It describes itself as a “pro-worker, anti-racist organization” — but it’s calling for an armed struggle against “the oppressive systems which dominate our lives.”
- It’s easy to see what groups like this mean by “oppressive systems.” Redneck Revolt sent a group of openly-armed members to a MAGA rally in Phoenix last March, in a blatant attempt to intimidate supporters of our elected president.
- Groups like this are likely to seize any opportunity to use violence as a political tool. They’re armed, they’re informing themselves about guerilla warfare tactics and they’re spoiling for a fight. You can’t assume you’ll be facing untrained criminals; with far-left militias in the picture you need to be ready for a serious fight.
