The site will be a Free Speech rally in Washington DC this Saturday, the 6th. A link going around takes us to Law Enforcement Today who provides details. They're not just planning to attack any conservatives that might be there (how would they know unless the person is publicly known?), they're promising a new twist on the favored attack of Islamist terrorists in the UK and EU: acid attacks.
An ANTIFA member named ‘Pound Your Boy’ posted on a conservative Telegram channel that:Wax? The specificity of the statement led the rally’s co-organizer, Enrique Tarrio, to contact the FBI and DHS. Both have assured additional security for the event. Enrique Tarrio looked into the specifics and found a rather nasty effect is being planned by Antifa.
“We already have the Muriatic acid, wax, and balloons.”
“According to Tarrio, the threat is especially dangerous due to the use of wax. Muriatic acid can be purchased in virtually any pool store or home improvement store and is already dangerous on its own with the ability to cause minor burns. It can quickly be washed off with water. By combining the muriatic acid with wax, it will immediately form a film similar to candle wax on the injured person’s skin.”I would say “minor burns” depends on who's describing it. I've been burned by muriatic acid and the only reason I didn't have lifelong scarring was getting baking soda on it to neutralize the acid very quickly. It was in high school chemistry so accidents were expected and planned for.
Of course, in the world of the Internet, Antifa can read the information from FBI, DHS and co-organizer Tarrio as well as the intended audience. Pound Your Boy replied:
“How’s DC coming along? Cant fight if you cant see. I want to blind as many of you c— suckers as possible. A nice balloon filled with Muriatic acid, covered in wax will so do the job.”Much like their "free milkshakes" for throwing being handed out last weekend, Antifa can fill balloons with muriatic acid for throwing and hand them out Saturday. The FBI/DHS should destroy those stands as their first order of business. A splash on your arm won't kill you, and if it's gotten off promptly may not be a big deal. A splash in an eye might well blind you, regardless of how fast you move.
The website is for law enforcement, so they go into more details on the messes in Portland, with the Mayor (who is also the police commissioner) telling the police to back off, and more details on the situtation there. RTWT if you're interested. The author has a conclusion to the article that's so good I'll borrow it for here:
What does it say when Antifa has literally taken over the streets where they protest, where their lawlessness is so pervasive that even law enforcement agencies are concerned for their safety?Antifa isn't intending to hurt the DC police, although that might change if they don't roll over and do nothing like the Portland police. No, they're intending to hurt you, if you show up at the rally. The only freedom of speech they support is theirs; if you disagree, you're the one they want to blind with acid. There's some amount of chance that this event goes kinetic and spreads. Keep your eyes open.
What does it say when a sheriff’s office no longer responds to calls? Is it going to become a scenario where the general public is forced to defend themselves against the violence coming from this far-left group that hides behind masks and helmets?
If it comes to that, then what? Will prosecutors go after those that incite the violence, or will they come after those who were merely defending themselves?
One way or another, something has to be done about these lawless “protestors.” And that something needs to happen soon.
