SurvivalBlog presents another edition of the Survivalist’s Odds ‘n Sods– a collection of news bits and pieces that are relevant to the modern survivalist and prepper.
Continuing on the antifa subject of last time, reader T.J. sent in the link to a propaganda film by the agitators. I couldn’t make it very far into the piece without feeling sick to my stomach, but an anonymous person posted these notes:
- Notice the high-quality, professional production value of the piece.
- Aiming at young people – effectiveness unknown; try it on some test subjects.
- Uniforms look stupid 99% of the time and are tactically unwise almost as often.
- The odds of a Team Freedom “Only Good Red Is Dead” counter prop is near zero at this time.
I would add that it is amazing that it is the antifa movement that seeks to hide its identity. (Usually that is a mark of those who are ashamed or pursue terrorist goals.) It is also equally amazing to me that these people are trying to portray their “enemies” as fascists while using fascist tactics and goals themselves.
H.L sent in an article from SHTFplan about South Africa. As the apartheid pendulum continues its swing in the opposite direction, some are now calling for the government to confiscate white owned lands. They are then wanting to redistribute those lands to black South Africans. While not yet official this policy will lead towards conflict.. It’s also a recipe for genocide all over again.
Reader D.S. sent in this article about a liberal, feminist, progressive who went to Turkey with her Muslim loverboy and ended up getting raped and beaten. Did she learn her lesson? As you read, you’ll find that she seems to separate the actions of her boyfriend completely from the cultural and political motivations of his Muslim faith. I guess some people just don’t take hints all that well.
DSV forwarded this article from the Washington Times on the Islamic State and their use of social media. ISIS is slowly retreating from towns in Iraq and Syria. So they are taking to social media and issuing new directives to followers on new ways for slaughtering non-Muslims.
Reader T.J. sent in this link showing that British law enforcement is now learning what the pro-gun community has tried to tell them all along: Britain Sees Rise in Acid Attacks after Crackdown on Guns. Duh! The gun is just a tool. The evil is in the person’s intent. Guns, knives, trucks, acid…even fists– all are just tools in the hand of a person.
The Store Room
A blizzard moving through Colorado and Kansas has wreaked havoc on the cattle and wheat industries. Thousands of cattle are being reported as killed . The inevitable shortage will drive the price of beef up again. Additionally, it appears that a significant portion of the western Kansas wheat crop has been lost. I hope you have your beef and wheat stores in good shape right now.
While Flint has dropped out of the limelight in the lamestream media, there are still significant problems there. The latest scam is the local government forcing the residents to pay for water that they cannot use or risk having their homes foreclosed on. There is nothing quite like the feeling you get when your elected officials knowingly poison you. Then they threaten to take your home when you refuse to pay for the poison. I’m wondering when the beatings will enter the equation.
