Biden’s Bullet Points

“Every tyranny must decide whether to rule by brutal force or by persuasion,” contended Josiah Lippincott on November 5. “Brute force isn’t an option for the modern Left. They lack the Soviet talent for mass scale political violence. Vladimir Lenin had legions of men like Yakov Yurovsky, the killer who butchered the Russian czar and his entire family, at his disposal. Does Joe Biden?” 

Good question. The answer might start with the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  

Back in 1992, the FBI’s sting operation on Randy Weaver turned deadly for Weaver’s son and a U.S. Marshal. The FBI then deployed some 400 heavily armed agents, helicopters and armored personnel carriers against a single family. The rules of engagement allowed deadly force against any family member seen with a firearm, but in effect the policy was to shoot on sight. 

FBI sniper Lon Horiuchi shot Vicki Weaver in the head as she held her infant daughter. She had committed no crime and there was no warrant for her arrest. Snipers are trained carefully to “acquire” their targets, so the chances the killing of Vicki Weaver was accidental, as FBI bosses claimed, range between slim and none. The following year, the FBI-military axis mounted a surge. 

“A host of Patton tanks were part of an arsenal of military hardware that the FBI used against the Davidians during the 51-day siege that killed 84 people,” reported Robert Bryce of the Austin Chronicle.  

The Patton tank, a combat engineer vehicle (CEV) stands 10 feet tall, spans 12 feet wide, weighs more than 120,000 pounds, and was designed to fight the Soviet Union. As it emerged in court testimony, the FBI had at its disposal five Patton tanks, 10 M2 Bradley Fighting Vehicles, one M88 tank retriever, and one M1A1 Abrams tank, as Bryce notes, “the most sophisticated battle tank ever built.” 

The use of the tanks, “was just one facet of a massive armored invasion of the Branch Davidian site. During the siege, the distinction between police and military all but disappeared.” The Waco assault was “the bloodiest and most controversial police action in American history.” 

In 1993, same year as Waco, the FBI failed to stop the first attack on the World Trade Center. Assigned to prevent terrorism, the FBI also failed to stop the massive attack of September 11, 2001. The FBI knew all about “soldier of Allah,” Major Nidal Hasan, but failed to stop his murder spree at Fort Hood in 2009. 

In similar style, the FBI failed to stop deadly attacks on the Boston Marathon (2013), San Bernardino County government workers (2015), and revelers at an Orlando nightclub (2016) before actual domestic terrorists slaughtered scores of innocent Americans. While failing at its appointed tasks, the FBI mounted covert operations against candidate and then President Donald Trump, and not a single FBI boss has faced criminal charges. 

The FBI now echoes Joe Biden’s view that anyone less than worshipful of the Delaware Democrat is a domestic terrorist, militant extremist, and so forth. Biden adds “semi-fascist,” and “Ultra MAGA,” to the mix. When people call you names like that, they are laying the groundwork for repression and violence. 

Biden’s September 1 hate speech, backdropped in red, featured two U.S. Marines in the background. For all but the willfully blind, this was a clear threat of military action against the people. Recall that 26,000 National Guard troops walled off Biden’s inauguration and 7,000 remained in Washington until the end of January. The National Guard has a history that people of a certain age may remember. 

In early May 1970, during protests of the war in Vietnam, nearly 1,000 National Guard troops occupied the campus of Kent State University, making it appear like a military war zone. Ohio Governor James Rhode called the protesters the worst kind of people in America, and said that every force of law would be used against them. 

On May 4, 1970, National Guard troops fired into a group of Kent State anti-war demonstrators, killing four students and wounding nine others. A bullet struck Jeffrey Miller, 20, in the mouth. Allison Krause, 19, took a shot in her left side. William Shroeder, 19 took a bullet in the left side of his back and Sandra Scheuer, 20, a speech and hearing therapy major, took a fatal bullet in the neck. 

National Guard troops shot Dean Kahler in the small of his back, leaving the student paralyzed from the waist down. Eight others were wounded, including Donald MacKenzie, struck in the neck. This is what happens when politicians turn a college campus into a war zone. 

The Biden junta can also count on the forces of Antifa, BLM, and freelance criminals, willing to burn, loot, and murder. For Biden, Antifa was only an “idea,” not a militia, extremist group, or domestic terrorist organization. During the worst of the violence, the FBI looked the other way, and now deploys massive force and military weapons while arresting peaceful pro-life protesters

According The Black Book of Communism, the Chinese Communist regime murdered more than 60 million people, the most domestic casualties of any nation, and far surpassing Joseph Stalin’s Soviet Union. Biden believes the Chinese Communists are “not bad folks,” and the Delaware Democrat sees the greatest threat from those who want to make America great again. 

This demented misanthrope has the forces for mass political violence at his disposal. As Americans protest his destructive policies, don’t be surprised if the tanks roll, the bullets fly, and the bodies fall.
