On June 4th I published the warning from ANTIFA that they were heading out to make rural America feel just as unsafe as their big city counterparts. Here is the headline and a blurb from that article:

BULLETIN: Antifa moving attacks to rural heartland this weekend
“Today Natural News has learned that Antifa operatives are organizing a plan to bus large numbers of Antifa terrorists to the vicinity of Sparta, Illinois, where they will be directed to target rural white Americans by burning farm houses and killing livestock. The purpose of the attack, according to sources, is so that Antifa can send a message to white America that “not even rural whites are safe” from the reach of Antifa, and that if their radical left-wing demands are not met, all of America will burn (not just the cities).”

That’s all well and good, but The Bitterroot has more firearms than fingers and we are halfway between nowhere and nowhere else.

Sorry neighbors, but you need to park your complacency and begin paying close attention to your surroundings. There are solid signs that The Bitterroot has arrived in the ANTIFA crosshairs.

I serve as a leading participant in the Bitterroot Emergency Amateur Radio Services (BEARS). It is a group of radio operators, technicians and engineers who plan and gear up for communicating in emergencies when other forms might fail us. We have ex-military radio operators, special forces and rangers for whom radio was integral to every assignment, a rocket scientist, professors, engineers, commercial radio gear fabricators and others of us who have been working to absorb and apply as much as we can.

These resources with extensively varied, relevant experience have raised my ALERT LEVEL to CONDITION ORANGE.
In condition orange, you have identified something of interest that may or may not prove to be a threat. Until you determine the true nature of whatever has piqued your interest, your “radar” is narrowed to concentrate on the possible threat and will remain so focused until you are satisfied no threat exists.

I urge you to pay closer attention to your area of operation with a much heightened suspicion level. I also recommend you begin sharing your sightings of the odd or unusual with others. Hopefully one or more will consolidate data, perhaps analyzing and coordinating coherent responses.

Not in The Bitterroot? You are safely ensconced in some other Podunk Place that is surely safe? I would be very, very suspicious about now.

I have been directed to study 4th Generation Warfare. Tanks, bombs, missiles and major force projections are not how most wars are fought any more. I am half-way through the definitive 4th Generation Warfare Handbook, and have consumed several articles and less formal publications.

I plan to share a lot more on that topic soon. Suffice it to say that the near-brainless inarticulate rioters are simple tools of those running the show. The planners, plotters, schemers, billionaires and operators fueling them are MUCH MORE DANGEROUS than the violent simpletons on the front lines might have us thinking. I will go no further on that topic here and now except to say that the control elements have merged (some cry “hijacked”) the Black Lives Matter (BLM) and hilariously mis-named Anti-Fascist (ANTIFA) movements. Needless to say, they are one in the same now.

Here is what you need to be looking for

I received a third report this morning of ANTIFA / BLM targeting The Bitterroot. This finally got my attention.
The first was them simply passing through – inconspicuously dogged by some really knowledgeable local cadre.
The second was an aggressive BLM chasing a local out at Lake Como.
This morning was a fully-ANTIFA-costumed (black mask, hoodie, clothes) posing in front of town hall doing a photo shoot while giving the rejuvenated Black Panther salute with the DARBY MARSHALL sign in the background.

The first was probably cadre scoping out the possibilities.
The second likely lead elements arriving on scene.
The third smells a bit like the creation of a recruiting poster to bring, ahem, excitement to Darby.
Fourth was a very redneck-looking truck with a very un-redneck driver touristing our communities and the hills overlooking us. California plates are not all that unusual around here, but the combination caught my alert observer’s attention.

Are you ready?
Are we ready?
Are we awake?

On hearing the first I thought Hamilton, Florence or another of the ‘bigger towns’ would be targeted.  Now I realize all of us really ought to review and consider the Rapid City, South Dakota model.

communities that don’t burn

So many of the elements impressed me, but the biggest is the absolute lack of violence on both sides. This has happened many times throughout rural America as the ANTIFA/BLM schemers try to take it to us. Overwhelming force of normies turns off the kids freshly emerged from Mommy’s basement with Soros $25/hour paychecks to pillage the peasant class.

I am also thinking we do not have gobs of time. The recruiting poster could go out at the speed of cell-phone.

I called Ravalli Dispatch this morning. They patched me in to Darby Marshall Larry Rose. He and I talked for quite a while. He was interested, asked good questions and seemed to appreciate my offer of help. I have been working on that topic most of today.

Two things motivate my efforts. I don’t want my community, my neighbors and friends to suffer, and I HATE BULLIES. For nearly all of my life, I have intervened whenever I see one plying his trade. My business or not, I make it mine.

Wake up before your community makes the news headlines.
