Context: This is not about one candidate over another; this is not about where one falls on the political spectrum (though indirectly, whether you may get attacked or not has a lot to do with your political beliefs and who you support). This is simply about not becoming someone’s punching bag or worse, homicide victim. There are NO ‘safe places’ anymore.
See the image above? This is a Trump supporter being chased down and subsequently beaten by a ‘person’ who doesn’t hold that having different political views is acceptable. The guy who’s getting attacked made a terrible error. No, it’s not attending the Trump rally. It was not being prepared to defend himself while at the rally.
Read this Op-Ed by ‘Fred’ to see where the problem stems from. We are through the looking glass here, folks. The old ways are no longer viable. You know, exchange of ideas, debate on philosophy. Agree or disagree, he brings up some very good points. Here’s a key quote: “The conflict is between freedom and social totalitarianism.” And, it’s being conducted with increasing violence from the social totalitarianists. One more: “Filth and illiteracy are not just tolerated but exalted.” Get it? This is purposeful, and it’s aimed at you, your spouse, your children (especially your children), your friends, your family, your church membership, your neighborhoods and everything you are.
A viable solution? Learn to fight. Become able to defend yourself with or without weapons. When attacked, Finish It Now. The threat was stopped? Great, go on about your business. Definition break: A threat is not being screamed at and called names. You can disengage from that sort of encounter. A threat is when someone lays a hand on you or is in the process of striking/cutting/attempting to shoot you.
If you’re thinking of learning to fight effectively, you will need to be in better shape than you are now, most likely. Fighting takes a lot out of you, and if you want to last the 30 seconds to a minute you may be in physical contact with your attacker, you need to be in shape. A minute is forever in a fight. Ask people who know. Adrenaline drains your energy reserves at the speed of light.
So, if you’re serious, start a PT program, and find a place that teaches you how to Finish It Now. We can help with that. Drop us a line.
Lastly, here’s a link that demonstrates you are on your own:
San Jose undercover police officer: “…Trump supporters being spit on, objects being thrown at them, punched, kicked and even robbed of their personal belongings. In these instances I observed victims running for their lives because protesters began adopting the mob mentality and attacking people.”
He goes on to say that he couldn’t do anything to help these people because it would jeopardize his undercover status….meaning, “they were on their own.”
