I’ve been considering writing this article for a few weeks but hesitated because I felt some would believe I was just being melodramatic. Just this week I noticed a couple of prominent conservative news sites featured articles sharing the same exact concerns so I decided this was the proper article for me to write at this point in time.
There are so many factors that have led to my anxiety concerning violence and the upcoming election.
The political left has demonstrated an affinity for violence. The amount of violence they have perpetrated just the last year is staggering. In Portland Oregon alone ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter rioted for over 100 days. How many cities were burned by leftists over police involved shootings this year? We all have clear memories of leftists rioting on President Trumps Inauguration Day. What are the chances of leftists rioting if President wins? I believe they are high especially if it is a contested election.
I believe that there will be a tremendous amount of confusion over election results in many key states thanks to mail in voting. It is widely believed by us on the political right that mail in voting is a tool to steal the election from President Trump. There are far fewer safeguards when it comes to mail in voting and a tremendous amount of fraud has already proven to have taken place. There is a very chance that the Supreme Court will have to settle some state elections and the election will end up in the House of Representatives where President Trump should win. That would trigger a tsunami of violence from the left.
The news media has been trumpeting very loudly polls declaring that Joe Biden has a commanding lead over President Trump. I believe these polls are fraudulent and the media are pushing them on purpose to stir up the left even further after a surprise Trump victory.

Just as in 2016, nearly all political pundits predict a victory for the Democrat candidate. The vast majority of MSM downplay any polls showing Trump leading the race and overplay the ones for Biden. This bias toward the Democrat shapes the perception of the Democrat party (Republicans are mostly skeptical about those polls), setting false expectations for the Election Day results. The pure-evil-fascist-Trump simply cannot be allowed to reign another term. A wide array of the leftist groups is already coordinating efforts to ensure substantial public protests after the election to “defend the vote counting.” “If Trump tries to stop the counting of mail-in ballots after Election Day, or otherwise tries to short-circuit the results, the scale of protests would be that of “the BLM protests on steroids,” they warn.
How many times have the news media speculated that President Trump may not step down if he looses? This is an attempt to cast doubt on a contested President Trump victory and to further inflame the political left, resulting in more violence from the left.
I am worried that the level of violence from the political left will be far greater after a President Trump victory than we have seen so far. Hopefully governors and mayors take proper precautions. I fear a lot of Democrats in authority will not.
Just as I was getting ready to publish my article I came across this Federalist article which proves my fears are more than justified.
Riot and protest instigators plan to “make sure Trump leaves the White House” by any means necessary after the Nov. 3 election, according to website posts from the group Shut Down DC and their allies. “W]e’re making plans to be in the streets before the polls even close, ready to adapt and respond to whatever comes our way,” the group says on its website currently.
