We were asleep that day, and had a rude awakening. In a sense, it seems the same thing is happening now with Antifa and how people keep underestimating them. Adam Piggott has a must-read post telling us to stop all that:
Every Antifa member that has been killed or unmasked in the past couple of weeks has been revealed as a convicted criminal, some with quite disturbing rap sheets. In other words, they have nothing to lose. They are highly trained to reach demonstrable objectives on the ground of their own choosing. These guys are not the cartoon idiots that we were encouraged to believe. They are far from it.Most disturbing is his discussion of the local government authorities actively working to support Antifa, specifically in the courts. This is quite disturbing. Really disturbing. It makes me glad that The Queen Of The World and I got out of Maryland.
Read the whole thing. It feels like September 10, 2001 all over again.
