“Don’t fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here.”
April 19, 1775
In the U.S. Army we were trained never to hate the enemy, because hate is an unstable emotion that clouds the judgement and leads the hater to do stupid things.
It is far better to let the enemy hate you, so that he will make foolish blunders that ensure his defeat.
I’m impressed the patriot side in this Cold Civil War that stands with fearless icy cold determination never to submit to the demands of the Left.
I stood with modern American patriots in the counter demonstration to the May Day celebration and marches by the Left in Seattle. I marched with them for hours in the cold Northwest spring under cloudy skies in a small sea of American flag proudly raised on high all over the central part of the city.
The patriot march and counter demonstration ended at Westlake Park, the center of the city and business district, where the patriots stood silently while a howling mob of hate filled Leftist traitors filled the air with curses against the Republic and President Trump.
There was no command given to be silent and stand the line. We were a collection of rugged individualists from all over the Northwest. Many of my fellow marchers told me they carried concealed weapons for self defense and were licensed by the state of Washington to do so. I couldn't help but think of Captain Parker at Lexington on April 19, 1775 when confronted with a British Army unit ten times the size of his force:
No shots were fired in Seattle on May 1, 2017.
No Second American Revolution broke out.
Both sides peacefully withdrew from the field going opposite directions.
The patriots will not give into the political hate sweeping the nation, but they will stand the line shoulder to shoulder, armed in legal self defense, and continue to fight the Cold Civil War by peaceful and legal means until the party of treason decides otherwise.
