Antifa, Political Protests, And Political Violence: What 70’s Cops Taught Us

Journalists beaten bloody and sent to the hospital simply for covering political protests.

Protesters savagely kicked and punched just for carrying an American flag.

Black-clad, masked thugs blocking traffic, threatening drivers and then chasing down and beating an old man who drove through their roadblock.

A man armed with a rifle and fire-bombs who tried to burn down an immigration detention facility.

What do all these attacks have in common?

The violence was all done by Antifa – the people who are taking over sections of American cities RIGHT NOW!

This “anti-fascist” group was something most people had never heard of before a couple years ago.

After the 2016 elections, they started showing up at political rallies and events more than ever, making it dangerous for anyone to express an opinion in public.

Left, Right, Center… it doesn’t matter, because if you’re not with them, they’ll attack you.

But violence at political protests, and trying to silence opinions you don’t agree with by beating people with pipes and crowbars, is nothing new.

In fact, the “old school” cops of the 1970’s had to deal with civil unrest and political violence all the time.

That’s why now, more than ever, we need to talk about. . .

What 70’s Cops Can Teach Us About Civil Unrest & Political Violence

Antifa And Political Protests: Survive Riots And Civil Unrest

If you’re my age or older, you remember how turbulent the 1960’s and 1970’s were.

Self-described anarchists and domestic terrorist groups like The Weather Underground, The Symbionese Liberation Army, and the United Freedom Front grabbed a LOT of headlines back then.

They bombed police stations, carried out kidnappings and armed robberies, conducted coordinated ambush attacks on cops, and were frequent players in the riots and political unrest of the day.

Against that violent backdrop, cops and first responders from the Seventies — a time decades before the term, “first responder,” was really used — had to learn how to deal with political violence and keep the peace.

Here are three lessons they taught us that we can apply to today’s political violence:

1. Don’t Assume The Other Side Is Stupid

We like to think of ourselves as the prepared, trained ones.

Often, we sneer at those we consider “sheeple,” people who don’t train or prepare like we do.

That’s a mistake.

Cops from the 1970’s learned fast that guerrilla groups of domestic terrorists were highly organized and capable of carrying out sophisticated ambush attacks.

And they did it all without social media!

Today’s street fighters and political activist groups use social media and technology to coordinate their assaults.

They also use the same technology to identify and target people who criticize them, often surrounding and beating down their targets at political events.

You HAVE to assume the “bad guys” are capable of working together to come at you (or anyone else).

Never underestimate how dangerous they are.

(I cover some of the other dangers of social chaos, and the gear you can use to protect yourself,  in my survival gear secrets report. More on that in a bit.)

2. Be Prepared For “Body Armor”

Cops in the 1970’s quickly learned that they needed to wear their bulletproof vests.

The only way to protect themselves from snipers and ambush attacks — apart from being very aware and watching each other’s backs — was to make sure they had some defense if they were hit when they didn’t expect it.

They understood the defensive power of body armor.

Well, if you’re at a political protest, don’t be surprised when the political street fighters show up wearing improvised body armor, carrying shields, and wielding clubs and even spears (usually disguised as flags).

They’ve started wearing other improvised riot gear, too, which makes them a LOT harder to take down if you’re forced to fight back.

If you find yourself facing down armored opponents, avoid that fight at all costs.

If you’re not armed, your hands and feet are no match for steel-pot shields and motorcycle helmets.

3. Riots Can Develop FAST

Cops in the 70’s knew that riots can happen when you least expect them.

A single incident can be the match that ignites a powder-keg.

Back in the 60’s and 70’s, riots like the civil unrest in Watts happened after a single interaction with police.

Much more recently, we saw days worth of violent riots in Ferguson after a single shooting by a suspect — Michael Brown — by a police officer.

Yet, these days, people seem inclined to stand around, watching and recording the action on their phones, never realizing just how vulnerable they are to mass violence.

If you see a violent incident go down, especially one involving the police (or anything with political or racial overtones), you need to get out of there right now.

Don’t wait to see what happens.

Don’t record “evidence” on your phone.

Don’t try to intervene or stand up for the people involved.

You need to LEAVE and then decide whether what you saw is worth a call to 9-1-1.

Otherwise, you and your family could get caught up in something that spirals out of control and becomes a riot.

These lessons from the 1970’s are just a few of the tips and tricks you can use to escape and evade civil unrest and political violence.

There are a lot more — and even sneakier — methods and carry items for social chaos in my survival gear secrets report, which you can see right here…

It’s loaded with things you should be carrying to help you deal with ANY situation in which you’re targeted for an attack by a group of people during collapse, riots, civil unrest, and martial law.

This type of political violence has become a fact of life for all of us, and it’s only going to get worse as we get closer to the next presidential election.

Learn how to protect yourself and your family now so you don’t get caught unaware.

Civil Unrest: Sneakiest Escape And Evasion “Riot Defense Trick” EVER!

Riots / Civil Unrest Escape & Evasion Trick
Jeff Anderson
Jeff Anderson, Editor

I’m about to show you what could possibly be the sneakiest escape and evasion trick for riot defense you’ve ever seen.

As you’ve seen on the news time after time, whenever there’s a breakdown in rule of law, people go absolutely bat-sh*t crazy.

Looting… setting cars on fire… throwing rocks… shooting in the air… and even attacking innocent civilians.

They realize that when the police are overwhelmed and there’s no one to stop them and it’s a free-for-all “anarchy party”.

If you and your family are suddenly caught in the rampage – either because you were out and about when an instant “flash mob” riot breaks out or if roving bands of looters come to your front yard, then…

Here’s A Sneaky “Escape And Evasion” Trick To Protect Yourself In A Riot

Riots / Civil Unrest Escape & Evasion Trick
Riots / Civil Unrest Escape & Evasion Trick

Now first I have to warn you…

The “trick” I’m going to teach you is something you’d ONLY do if you were facing serious violence and being targeted by looters, gangs, or adrenaline-junkie rock-throwers during a breakdown.

You see, the thing about thugs like these is that they know that the stakes are much higher if they attack a police officer than it is to attack a regular citizen.

They know…

… cops remember what they see…

…they never stop tracking someone who’s harmed them…

…and they’re trained, ARMED and deadly!

So let’s say you’re caught up in a flash mob attack during a post-disaster crime spree and you’re cornered by a gang of scumbags as you try to escape to safety.

Now you “could” try to fight your way out of the attack… maybe even pull out a concealed pistol?

But this could make you even more of a target for an ambush later on – either for revenge or to steal your weapon (a hot post-disaster commodity)

Here’s what I would do…

Reach behind me on my belt and pull off my shiny gold “badge”… stick it out forcefully in front of me… and yell…

BACK OFF! Just go your way and I’ll go mine and neither of us need to make this an issue. Got it?”

Then you just back out to safety as you assume their agreement while they’re gathering from the shock of not knowing what to do.

Now, let me be clear…

…I’m NOT saying to impersonate an officer!

But, assuming that police aren’t the target of the attacks, having a badge that “looks” like an officer’s badge could ward off attackers who wouldn’t think twice about victimizing a defenseless citizen… but will go look for an easier mark if they think they’re facing a seasoned cop.

You can order these types of badges online and choose any version that’s NOT a real law enforcement badge, like…

  • A “concealed carry” badge
  • Private Investigator badge
  • Even a Security Guard badge

THESE are the type of “sneaky tricks” you need to know for scenarios like mob attacks… demonstrations gone wild… food-shortage overthrows… and post-disaster looting sprees.

That’s why I want you to pick up a copy of the “Social Chaos Escape & Evasion” package.

It’s like having your very own “little black book of magic tricks” to get you and your family to safety in a breakdown in civil order.

You can pick up the entire package here…

In case you haven’t seen the news lately… it’s a pretty dangerous place out there.

So NOW is the time to prepare, right?

Our Social Chaos Escape & Evasion package will be your favorite guide in your library as soon as you start reading!
