I have this nightmare scenario in my mind that a group of right-wing conservatives (NOT neo Nazi or skinhead/KKK types) form up and wind up being attacked by BLM/Antifa,  respond and prevail over them, only to find that the government now wants to persecute (I use that word deliberatly) them ..... forcing them to either acquiesce to the .....  "law" .... or to begin to consider it's minions an enemy as well. :facepalm:

Remember Kyle Ritterhouse?  That is exactly what happened to  him.

Yeeeup.   I was contemplating something on a larger scale,  but Rittenhouse is a good example.

Portland PD's rapid response team resigns:

https://www.foxnews.com/us/portland-police-riot-team-resigns-officer-indicted-assault

Quote
All 50 of Portland police’s highly trained rapid response unit voted unanimously to resign on Wednesday during a union meeting in response to the recent indictment of Officer Corey Budworth for allegedly assaulting a photographer with his baton during as an overnight riot broke out last August.

"Unfortunately, this decorated public servant has been caught in the crossfire of agenda-driven city leaders and a politicized criminal justice system," the Portland Police Association said in an initial statement Tuesday after a Multnomah County grand jury indicted Budworth on one count of fourth-degree assault related to an incident that occurred on Aug. 18, 2020.

That night, according to the police union, a group of about 200 demonstrators – many equipped with tactical helmets, faces covered, and armed with a variety of weapons – descended on the Multnomah Building in southeast Portland. Multiple dumpsters were set on fire, buildings were defaced, and windows were broken. A riot soon was declared at the planned event after someone from the crowd launched a Molotov cocktail into the Multnomah Building, setting it ablaze.

This summer could will be "interesting".

I was going to say "in Portland", but on second thought I doubt it'll be limited to that one town.

More hardships for the Portland police
Of course she's making it a race issue despite the fact they later arrested someone who according to the video below could have been mistaken for Hardesty.


Quote
Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty has filed a $5 million lawsuit against the Portland Police Association, the former head of the police union, and an officer after she was falsely implicated in a hit-and-run crash earlier this year.

KATU News receive a copy of the lawsuit, which was filed Monday, from Hardesty's attorneys. As first reported by our news partners at Willamette Week, the suit is seeking $3 million from the police union and $1 million each from former PPA president Brian Hunzeker and officer Kerri Ottoman.

According to the lawsuit, the incident started March 3 when a Bureau of Emergency Communications employee circulated unconfirmed reports that implicated Hardesty in a hit-and-run crash.

“The reported damage to the vehicle was a one-centimeter circle on the white woman’s bumper possibly caused by the license plate screw from the offending driver’s license plates," the lawsuit states. “The white woman identified the car as being a tan Toyota Corolla and ‘swore on her life’ that it was Commissioner Hardesty who had committed the crime.”
Quote
Commissioner Hardesty’s lawsuit alleges that PPB employees and PPA members wrongfully leaked false information to right wing media sources and the Oregonian accusing her of engaging in criminal “hit and run” on March 3, 2021. This was done in violation of city policy and state law and with reckless disregard for the truth. Commissioner Hardesty alleges that the leaked false information was racially motived and designed to punish her for her longstanding and public opposition to race discrimination by the Portland Police against communities of color.

Compare and contrast to what is happening to 06JAN protestors:

https://www.foxnews.com/us/portland-antifa-rioter-charged-assaulting-police-case-dismissed-30-hours-community-service

It's been an interesting case study. 

Axiom: The current government is happy to take political prisoners of conservative protesters. 

I think that statement is defensible with current evidence.  That is deeply concerning.

Should the conservative right ever attempt any serious action - not even revolution, but simply reform to enforce existing constitutional principals - I believe even people unwilling to be involved will be forced to pick a side.  If 0.1% of conservatives made an efforts towards that, the 99.9% would have to either commit fully, or back-peddle as hard as possible hoping that their prior statements, purchases, and lifestyle choices won't target them as political prisoners.  Some percentage wouldn't have a choice - damned if you do, damned if you don't.  For them, the only choice is total commitment or expatriation as political refugees.

It's not inconceivable that all of us on this forum could, at some point, be labeled "domestic terrorists".  And the forum itself an "extremest organization".  That would have sounded highly implausible twenty years ago, but consider that the 06JAN folks have been held for a year.  Their crime?  Making statements and walking around at a place.   =|

Before someone jumps in with it, yes, there were some knuckleheads that destroyed property at the Capitol, and they should face some punishment, but not decades in jail when this person, who tried to blind people - BLIND people - walks with community service. While 06JAN people who did indeed do nothing more than just walk around are sitting in jail uncharged, charged with felonies, or fined exorbitant amounts.

Not to mention the MSM and big tech involvement that helped to hide the identities of antifa protestors while calling on friends and family to hunt down and turn in 06JAN protestors.

As to being marked as domestic terrorists, I would submit that aforementioned MSM, big tech, and a large group of politicians have already marked people like us as domestic terrorists. If Southern Poverty Law Center or similar were to ever accidently stumble into APS, we would be on the lists they distribute.

Oh, and might should be in the DC thread, but related to what I wrote above, CNN is having an 06JAN extravaganza special. I notice the "special guests" are all dems (I count Liz Cheney as a dem).

It's like a party for these people.

So, armed homeowner, probably defending him/herself against these clowns. He/she zips one, wounds 5 others, and their compatriots won't even think about cooperating with the police?

Sounds like a win/win to me.

I kept seeing "gathering" used too much.  Gives the impression they were meeting at someone's house when it was nothing of the kind.  And the homeowner was black.

Came across a video last night where some guy was ranting on about the homeowner will no doubt get away with murder. Only saw maybe 30 seconds before I moved on but he was going on about people getting away with murder while a picture of Rittenhouse was on the screen.

I didn't read thoroughly, but I'm guessing the homeowner's only option is to move someplace that doesn't coddle antifa. Otherwise, they'll be looking over their shoulder for the rest of their lives.

In my opinion, both groups lack the organization and discipline to go very far with anything like that.  It's also why they will ultimately disappear without achieving their goals - goals which are vague, unspecific and nonactionable anyway.  They are essentially emotion-driven rioters who only exist at the behest of local governments who back them with their protection.

 antifa are good at organization and due to lifestyle difficult to infiltrate - like an undercover would have to put up with scabies - have sex with people they wouldn't like to and have to catch herpes or worse to prove their loyalty to the cause - however the discipline part is where you are probably correct, they know how to pull a trigger and buy or acquire a gun - but they are not disciplined enough to be very good at it, however I'm sure there are some veterans in various antifa "affinity groups" which are what they call their cells

 So, from what I saw somewhere-the Portland homeowner who shot antifa is supposed to be a "furry"
I've met a few at Burningman, they're all Bernie voters.
Yet antifa claims the furry homeowner is a NAZI ...
 DOES THIS MEAN HE IS IN THE FURRED REICH?
