The Danger of Political Civil Unrest This Week


Armstrong Economics Blog/Civil Unrest Re-Posted Jan 18, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

The Kent University State Massacre took place on May 4th, 1970. It was the killing of four students and the wounding of nine others who were all unarmed students by the Ohio National Guard. I certainly hope there is no violence this week. The National Guard after Kent State was never again to appear with loaded weapons. Here on the 20th, it appears that Pelosi preferred marines rather than unarmed “weekend warriors” as she views the National Guard. To placate her demands, the National Guard this week will be armed.

The rise of Antifa really took shape starting with the Berkeley riots in 2017. The Antifa handbook was published in 2017.  As the cycle turned, political protests have erupted around the world. There is basically no place that has been immune. My deep concern is that we have reached the culmination of this cycle here in 2021 and the arming of the National Guard is indicative of the start of a new cycle and this appears to be one of increased violence that will lead to revolutions in many parts of the world. All we can do is pray that they do not attempt a siege in Washington this week. It will not end well and can easily be another Kent State Massacre with total repression nationwide thereafter.

This photo has been used to paint Trump Supporters as crazy barbarians. I remarked that it appeared to be staged. Indeed, this is showing that they were not Trump supporters. There was the Democratically appointed Judge’s son from Brooklyn dressed up as a caveman and his buddy carrying a Confederate Flag. This appears to be done for theater but they are the ones being put out there as the Trump supporters. This has been choreographed for political purposes.

Pelosi and AOC are doing their best to profit from this event. AOC said, without description, she had a close encounter where she thought she was going to die. Well, she also thinks we will all die from climate change in 7 years. Let us hope there is no violent siege this week because Pelosi has ensured here “weekend warriors” have loaded weapons that were banned after the Kent State Massacre. There is nothing more she would rejoice than being able to order another massacre and use that as Hitler did to impose total suppression nationwide. Biden has already vowed to end the NRA. They will use violence this week as an excuse to go after guns. The NRA is already declaring bankruptcy but moving its headquarters from New York to Texas.
