Implausible, you insist?.. How Close ARE We?



(Matt Bracken wrote this essay in 2012 for Western Rifle Shooters Association, where it quickly racked up over 400 replies and comments. He reposted it in American Partisan on May 31, 2020, during the George Floyd riots, without revision.)

In response to recent articles in mainstream military journals discussing the use of the U.S. Army to quell insurrections on American soil, I offer an alternate vision of the future. Instead of a small town in the South as the flash point, picture instead a score of U.S. cities in the thrall of riots greater than those experienced in Los Angeles in 1965 (Watts), multiple cities in 1968 (MLK assassination), and Los Angeles again in 1992 (Rodney King). New Yorkers can imagine the 1977 blackout looting or the 1991 Crown Heights disturbance. In fact, the proximate spark of the next round of major riots in America could be any from a long list cribbed from our history.


Go read the rest here<<<< 


  1. Already read it a while ago.

    "If ye are prepared ye shall not fear."

    Most of the people here are either preppers, JOATMONs, or all of the above. We're as ready as we can get.

  2. I remember the riots back in 1967-8 . dad used to sit on the front porch with his shotgun when it got bad.
    and I also remember the LA riots in 92. the peaceful protests of 2020 should have woken up even the blind.
    kind of like the mobs on black Friday fighting over a fucking toaster or tv... so just what do you think those same assholes will do over food ? read it. and then get yourself a scope sighted semi auto rifle and at least 10 magazines
    for it. even a 22lr rifle is good out to 100 plus yards. but a 308 gives you a lot more distance between you and them.
    if you going 5.56, try the 69 and 77 grain ammo. this is not going to end well for us at all.

  3. The only fallacy in Matt's description of events is that the cell service/internet the rioters (and defenders) depend on will be cut. We have seen in foreign countries where the officials cut the net at the first sign of large opposition. Stop their communications and it is much harder to organize.

  4. as i recall the idiots in the cities voted for all the BS to come.

  5. If they have fuel, then we may expect to see "raids" coming out of the cities to smaller towns, villages. This won't be instantaneous, but once they've devoured what's there and in the surrounding suburbs, then it happens. Martial Law is a given, restricted movement and all that goes with it. The question is, can the "authorities" hold, or do they collapse? My guess, well I'm buying more beans and bullets..........

  6. All of Brackens stuff is entertaining enough reading, and in it are seeds to promote thinking outside the box. Worth one's times to review. Some of his stuff (written years ago) is scarily on the money. The sheep have no clue how precarious the global systems currently rest, from economics, energy, population migrations, healthcare, and war, just one significant event could easily initiate a cascading collapse.

    Add to the scenario a energy restriction and things get spicier quicker. Want to shut down commo? Easiest way to kill majority of commo is kill the power. At this point I'm just sitting here waiting for a inevitable (that which cannot last, wont) and listening to Mark Knopfler Cleaning my Gun. I didn't ask, nor do I want any of this shit, and Im going to do what I've always done, protect and provide the best I can my family, and then my community. Wish it wasn't like this but it is, I don't make the rules, I just play the cards I'm dealt.

  7. If election results look bad enough for the administration, I can see them postponing the election by simply surreptitiously voiding the EBT card. Quick, effective, and easy to blame on anyone but them.
