“They better hope that the opposition to Antifa decides not to mobilize,” President Trump said yesterday.
During an Oval Office interview with The Daily Caller, President Trump warned violent leftists & Antifa thugs that an opposition to them may mobilize, and it would mean “big trouble” for them.
The president continued, “These people, like the Antifa, they better hope that the opposition to Antifa decides not to mobilize. Because if they do, they’re much tougher. Much stronger. Potentially much more violent. And Antifa’s going to be in big trouble. But so far they haven’t done that and that’s a good thing.”
The Daily Caller asked Trump about the wave of political violence during his administration, beginning with violent Antifa riots across the country on his inauguration day.
TUCKER CARLSON’S WIFE ATTACKED
BY ANTIFA THUGS NIGHT AFTER MIDTERMS
When asked specifically about the recent mob outside of Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s house, the president said, “I spoke to Tucker, I think Tucker’s a great guy, and I think it’s terrible. They were actually trying to break down his door.”
The mob gathered at Carlson’s house last Wednesday night. Hate-filled Leftist agitators vandalized the home and cracked the front door while chanting, “Tucker Carlson, we will fight. We know where you sleep at night!” and “You are not safe.”
WHAT SHOULD POLICE DO ABOUT POLITICAL VIOLENCE?
The Daily Caller asked the president what tactics law enforcement should practice when dealing with groups like Antifa.
“They’re sitting back and watching and they’re getting angrier and angrier,” Trump said about Normal Americans.*
“They better hope that the other side doesn’t mobilize,” Trump concluded, “Because if you look, the other side, it’s the military. It’s the police. It’s a lot of very strong, a lot of very tough people. Tougher than them. And smarter than them.”
Since Trump’s election, violent Antifa arrests have become commonplace coast to coast. Antifa is especially active in the Portland area where this writer lives. Indeed, many reporters believe Antifa first organized in this area. That is highly likely since Normal Oregonians have suffered under ever more oppressive Liberalism for decades.
The majority of Antifa thugs are 20-something men, but middle-aged and elderly Liberals can also be seen screaming obscenities at and about Normal Americans.* This writer is even acquainted with a number of female attorneys (yes, educated professionals, some in their 60s) who participated in the November 2016 – January 2017 riots in downtown Portland.

*This writer coined the term “Normal Americans” as a shorthand way to describe the majority of Americans. Since the 2016 election, dysfunctional Americans, a small, small minority, have taken over the national stage with their histrionics. Of course, these people existed before 2016, but they hid their sociopathic tendencies behind masks of normalcy.
Due to Trump’s election win, their masks came off. For some, they are too dysfunctional to control themselves any longer. Their masks just fell off in their rage against Normal Americans. I saw this first hand on January 26, 2017 at a gathering of fellow attorneys. After two hours of watching a sickening display of childish temper tantrums, I drove home in shock. When my husband asked what happened at the event, I was speechless, unable to articulate what I had witnessed until several minutes had passed.
For other members of “the resistance,” they no longer feel the need to hide their lunacy. By exposing themselves, they think they can overwhelm and intimidate Normal Americans into silence, into hiding in the shadows. We have been so tolerant for so long that Liberals took us for granted. We allowed them to run roughshod over us for decades, such that they mis-judged how far they could push us. With President Trump’s support Normal Americans finally found their collective backbone.
