Watch it while you can…
The first 10 minutes or so is slow to start. A lot of time being redundant about how ya gotta grow a set to do this. Then he finally gets into what “this” is. At 16 minutes details arrive.
Some town in Western N.Dakota I think. Got wind Antifa and worse were going to cause trouble.
A whole bunch of locals, veterans, and bikers, coordinating with the police, did full load out kit (rifles, pistols, body armour, etc.) This included night vision gear, drones, and guys posted to rooftops. Some plain clothes in cafes and such gathering Intel & photos.
Whenever an Antifa cell would case a place and get ready to hit it, the militia guys would come out of the shadows to talk… and Antifa would run off. In one case 2 Antifa with “rifles” were suddenly looking at 2 militia guys (more in the shadows with IR)… turns out their rifles were airsoft guns. Those LARPer Antifa were very lucky the locals were very experienced at gun identification ’cause the locals had the real deal.
Interesting tactical bits:
The Antifa folks case the place the day before. Small towns know everyone so they will be very obvious. Then watch for deliveries of bricks and bottles. If anyone applies for a protest permit, start your counter surveillance.
They arrived in busses with blackout windows. So put spotters on roads in with communications.
After the “protest” part, Antifa in Blac Block uniform split off into small bands to do distributed assaults. So put a fleet of your guys as mobile monitors on bikes to keep tabs, drones help, IR Night gear is very useful, and when they start doing their set up (digging in bags for paint cans and hammers) your guys show up in more numbers and politely ask them what’s up. Having superior numbers already well positioned helps, as do spotters on roofs.
Coordinate with your local police if not in a Democrat Socialist Utopia (I.e. urban 2A hostile asshats).
A more rough group does not mix with the Antifa or protestors but monitored from a restaurant. Then went out to do the big jobs as Antifa scattered in teams. Put someone “uninteresting” in plain clothes w/cell recorder in likely venues along the “protest” route. Capture faces & plates.
I’m sure hoping what this guy describes is accurate and not a ploy. It does match stuff I’d expect the Red Necks in my old home town to do. While I was not part of any group, I was ready to take to the street in my present town, if needed. I’d planned just simple “castle defense”, but was ready to join up with neighbors if anything broke out. Luckily, nothing happened here.
The rioters have no idea what it is like outside the big cities. Even just in the suburbs. Arriving in BUSSES!? Hell, I’ve got one car in brown drab with emergency gear in it and a gun bag ready for bugout. Airsoft rifles? Just enough to give your opponent a good legal answer for why they shot you. Blac Block uniforms so everyone knows who is trouble? Oh, please. Try business casual under a camo hunting jumpsuit w/boonie hat. I disapear in the bushes but in 10 seconds and one zipper become a casual citizen bystander.
So it looks like they have money and organizing behind them, but not much actual skill nor nerve if not in a mob pack on one guy. So prep, watch for the scouts, then overmatch in numbers, tactics, situational awareness / surveillance, and attitide / skill. Helpful to know your local police or citizens militia group.
When I last lived in Florida, it was in Polk County. There’s video of the Sheriff, Judd Grady, warning anyone coming to his county that the folks have guns and he encourages them to use guns. If you’ve not seen it, I encourage a look. It clarifies the attitude in Red Counties a great deal.
The Democrats can let their major blue urban core be looted and burned by ordering a police stand down, but that won’t fly in the rest of the country. All those County Sheriffs in all those red counties and all their citizens ready to back them up, well, they have different ideas.
