We’re seeing a new rash of “demonstrations” by Jew-hating leftists in America.  To date they’ve largely been in deeply “progressive” cities and neighborhoods across our nation.  It’s not just “somewhere else,” it’s right here in Illinois from Chicago to Skokie to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.  Some of these have turned rowdy bordering on riotous, but what do you expect when Antifa shows up?

What should you do if you find yourself on the fringes of one of these “mostly peaceful” mobs?

Watch this video and ask yourself what you would do if you found yourself in one of those cars.

Seattle PD did nothing to remove the traffic obstructions.  In fact, police effectively enabled the blockade by telling folks (near the end of the clip) that the point of protests is to make people feel uncomfortable.

Gee, it’s almost as if the cops are former “protesters” themselves.  Or maybe there’s a woke mind virus that’s infecting them.

Best advice?  Stay in your car and keep your piehole shut.  Consider that mob a hornet’s nest.  What do you do when you see a working hornet’s nest?  You be quiet and slowly extricate yourself in the safest direction possible.

Understand the mob mentality.  Just as you wouldn’t poke a hornet’s nest, don’t yell at any of the “protesters.”   You don’t want to become the focus of the mob’s anger and aggression.

Don’t get out of your car. Definitely don’t get out and start yelling at the “demonstrators.”

Sure, if you’ve got something belt-fed and crew-served and the mob is lighting Molotov cocktails to lob in your direction, you can light them up.  For 99.9999999% of us none of the first half of that is present in your daily driver on your way home with or without the stop for milk and cookies at the grocery store.

And unless the mob is breaking out the windows of your car trying to drag you out to beat you to death, you’re not justified in shooting them either.  Okay, pointing guns (and maybe knives) at you in your car, or trying to light you car on fire would be another couple of easy justifications for you to run people over or start shooting them.  Until and unless that happens, you can’t (legally) do anything.

Running them over is deadly force.  That’s not an acceptable solution either because you cannot articulate that ability, opportunity and jeopardy of your life all exist at that moment.  You’re relatively safe inside your car with the windows fully up.  The mob is not focused on you.  Unless you poke the hornet’s nest, they won’t try to kill you.

Imagine drawing a jury of twelve in that hellhole.  Or in Chicago.  Do you think the jury is going to sympathize with your plight and acquit you for running a couple of those smelly Antifa types?  Do you need reminded where “sympathy” lies in the dictionary?

So swallow your pride.  Practice your deep breathing relaxation techniques as you quietly wait for the mob to pass or to allow the traffic to flow again.  Don’t attract attention to yourself and don’t brandish your Roscoe.  Keep plenty of distance between your car and the vehicle in front of you to allow you to move around that car if opportunities arise.   And pay attention to your surroundings.

  1. Don’t forget, you cannot even use deadly force if an antifa member is pointing an AK47 at you. See, e.g., https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvpNrzA0lw8

    Daniel Perry is now serving 25 years in prison for defending himself against a crazed lunatic pointing an AK47 at him. NOTE how in the above video, they conveniently OMITTED the AK47 that everyone acknowledged the dead guy was pointing at Perry.

    HE DID EXACTLY what everyone in that situation is trained to do, and SHOULD do, and the liberal prosecutor and jury still hanged him.

    Folks, you cannot win this fight. But, if you’re going to carry, by all and every means, CARRY SELF-DEFENSE INSURANCE. I’ve used my gun in self-defense. It damned near bankrupted me.

    1. There was talk about getting him a pardon. Doing a search, there is nothing that comes up from the last six months. Have to assume it’s never going to happen, or is it possible they are somehow still working on it?

  2. When at a stop light or line of cars, you should stop where you can see the rear tires of the vehicle in front of you on the pavement, That should leave room to go left or right

  3. Not just protests, but also at criminal hijacking of Amazon trucks and FedEx trucks. Criminals will block the road and everybody on it so they can loot the trucks. Just another day in pritzker’s Illinois.
