Six Kenosha Thoughts now that the Shooting Back Has Begun

A long time ago I gave the left a warming:

The left assumes that as long as they don’t strike first at the right they can do what they wish.  It’s reached the point where the very suggestion that the right would fight back is almost quaint.

This forgets a basic fact about the traditional American Culture that the left have abandoned:  Americans take a long time to reach their breaking point but if you keep prodding them they eventually reach it. 

That’s all the folks in Kenosha they can stands, they can’t stands no more!

About a year ago I tweeted that I thought civil war was unlikely

Portland, Seattle, Washington, Minneapolis and Atlanta reinforced the misconceptions of those folks too stupid to care. Now that people are fighting back they might start.

For those of you worried if we are going to see a full blown Civil War, the answer is No.

But what Kenosha represents what we WILL see if this continues, which is a lot of small “range” wars like the Lincoln County Wars where there is no “formal” war but different groups of citizens shoot each other.

This is bad news for people who want to live the ordinary life that America offers but if the alternative is to let people riot loot and burn I don’t any other solution.

One of the other disadvantages of being on the left is having an education that doesn’t teach actual history but teaches a parody of it that conforms to the left’s worldview.

If leftists knew history they would know that the police are historically a fairly modern invention. For example Boston was founded in 1630. Boston’s police force the 1st in the nation was founded in 1838 over 300 years later and 62 years after the Declaration of Independence. Before then the people who kept law and order were ordinary armed citizens who were not burdened by a lot of rules on the use of force.

It looks very much like that system is about to make a comeback.

For the record I don’t find the shootings in Kenosha funny or good. It’s more like having to undergo a painful operation, you don’t want to have it and there are risks involved but the alternative is much more dangerous.

But I confess I do find the reactions of some on the left online simply hilarious:

I found this tweet even funnier:

and rephrased it thus:

Strange how unappealing a “world without police” is suddenly so unappealing to the left.

Oh and I used the image because the writer blocked me as soon after I replied. Nothing upsets the left more than being called out.

Finally I’ve been saying for a while that the goal of the left has been to produce a “Kent State” moment where they can put a body of a dead useful idiot on display as an attack on their enemies.

Now they have their bodies, but alas for them it wasn’t the national guard or federal troops who produced them.

The media spin on this is going to be very interesting.

  1. As Glenn the Instapundit has said many times, and I paraphrase: “The police are there as much to protect the criminals from the citizens, as to protect citizens from criminals.” The Kenosha shootings look like the first time that the citizens started shooting back. But probably not the last time. I personally think the civil war started when George Floyd’s death sparked rioting in Minneapolis and elsewhere. And I agree with you that it will be fought mostly with small skirmishes by various groups around the country with a steadily rising death toll, as violence begets more violence.
