One guy even brazenly talks about "armed resistance brigades" to stop electors from casting their ballots.
I’d assemble armed resistance brigades in and around states that voted for Trump. I’d make sure the participants are well-trained in urban combat. I’d do drills. I’d ensure that secure communications have been established to enable inter-state coordination. I’d impart to participants that they should be prepared to face severe state punishment for their rebellious acts— perhaps even death.The writer was cautious enough to put plenty of disclaimers in his article. But, he also highlights his ignorance of military operations.
One: Where is he going to find enough armed left-wingers to form resistance brigades?
Two: Training for an operation like this would take weeks, if not months. The election is next Monday. Good luck with that bit of pre-operation planning.
Three: He's talking about insurrection, if not open treason. Taking up arms against the US government is a death-sentence offense, and the electors for the President are a very important part of the United States.
I know that they are butt-hurt, but they should be very careful. It's one thing to demonstrate, cry, protest. That's okay, I get it. But, once you cross that rhetorical Rubicon into armed resistance, you go to a dark place where there may be no turning back.
I understand your anguish, but I have taken an oath to Protect and Defend the Constitution, against all enemies, foreign and domestic. I do not believe that I have ever been relieved of that obligation. So, I'm pleading with all my liberal friends; do not make me uphold that oath. It won't be pleasant, There are millions of folks like me across the United States who have been trained for such things.
Take it from one who knows. That kind of talk is dangerous. Get a grip on yourself and don't go there.
