The Bayonet Is Advancing

     A certain Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov, better known to most who know of him as Nikolai Lenin, advised his fellow Communist agitators and insurrectionists to “Probe with the bayonet. If you meet steel, stop. If you meet mush, push.” To those who seek to bring down a country, it’s sound tactical advice. Just as in ground warfare, the soft points in a nation are the places to attack. Hurling your forces against their strongest positions only guarantees a high body count.

     The coverage of the violence and vandalism that has overtaken many American cities makes it clear that the Antifa / “Black Lives Matter” insurrectionists have selected genuinely soft points against which to “probe.” Indeed, in Seattle, the police have been deprived of all non-lethal crowd-control weapons. They face a choice between firing live ammo at the insurrectionists and doing nothing. So Seattle’s police chief has told them to do nothing:

     In other words, Seattle has gone belly-up to the insurrectionists. The city’s “forces of order” have shrugged and walked away. While nothing quite as stark has happened in any other riot-torn city yet, the mayors and police of those cities have exhibited a similar degree of inanition.

     What remains are the active-duty United States Army, the National Guard, and the armed citizen.

     I’ve said more than once that we cannot remain on defense. We are at war, and have been for some time now. Those prosecuting the war have cast aside all pretense. Many of the insurrectionists are carrying firearms. Some have already exchanged fire with others who would oppose them. If the insurrectionists are not thrown onto the defense by some equally capable force, we will lose the country. The forlorn hope that “the police will protect us” has been shown to be a phantasm.

     On that score, Michelle Malkin, herself a recent victim of the insurrectionists, has a few thoughts for you:

     It's not "socialism" or "communism" under which we suffer. Our dangerously chaotic, selectively oppressive predicament is more accurately described as "anarcho-tyranny." The late conservative columnist Sam Francis first coined the term in 1992 to diagnose a condition of "both anarchy (the failure of the state to enforce the laws) and, at the same time, tyranny — the enforcement of laws by the state for oppressive purposes."...

     Anarcho-tyranny is how hoodlums can toss statues into rivers with impunity, while citizens disgusted by Black Lives Matter street graffiti are charged with "hate crimes" — as David Nelson and Nicole Anderson in Martinez, California, were by a George Soros-funded district attorney two weeks ago.

     Anarcho-tyranny is how rioters can shut down highways and byways on a whim without fear of arrest, while commuters trying to escape the window-smashing barbarians obstructing traffic are charged with "assault" — as poor Jennifer Watson of Denver, Colorado, was this week.

     Anarcho-tyranny is how hordes of gay pride activists marching shoulder to shoulder can defy social distancing guidelines with gushing approbation from radical left-wing medical "experts," while anti-lockdown and anti-mask mandate protesters are deemed public health menaces who now face snitch hotlines, fines, house arrest or jail time.

     Anarcho-tyranny is how 1,000 black militia members can take over the streets in Georgia and point their guns at motorists as they demand reparations, while white citizen militia members in Idaho, Utah and New Mexico have been smeared publicly as racists and face injunctions for peacefully defending their neighborhoods.

     Sam Francis’s vision was prescient. Our countrymen in the riot-torn cities would surely agree.

     I haven’t got anything more to say that I haven’t said more than once already, and I’m not going to wear out my fingers with pointless repetition. Instead I’ll let one of my favorite colleagues, David De Gerolamo of N.C. Renegade, close this essay:

     War is not coming. It is here. If you need any more proof than the shortage of available firearms and ammunition, look to the censorship of the news from the front. War may not be at your doorstep today, but any sapient individual understands that time is of the essence.

     As COVID-19 has now become the government’s means to control us, our work and our food supply, do you think they will abate? The time to have prepared for your supplies is in the past. The time to recognize that the war is here is now. The actions we take today will impact how our children will live in the future. From what I see and hear, Communism is winning and we are kneeling.

     It’s time to get off our knees: to lock, load, close with the enemy, and destroy it. All the less demanding options we’ve relied upon have failed us.

     Have a nice day.

Thank you Francis. In this age of lies I appreciate your clarity and courage.

All true. Guess we are waiting for our John Brown to appear.
