This was written by David Hines and published in Jacobite. It probably does a pretty good job of assuring those who carry bike locks that they will prevail:
“POLITICAL VIOLENCE IS A GAME THE RIGHT CAN’T WIN”
If there’s one thing righties believe, it’s that they could beat lefties in a fight.
You see this attitude reflected over and over again, to the point that it’s probably something engrained in the right-wing psyche. Pajama Boy vs. tactical deathbeast? Pffft. No contest. Look, righties have the guns, righties have police and they have the military. If one day the balloon ever goes up, righties will just organize behind a leadership of their veterans, coordinate with the active service, give all the lefties free helicopter rides, and live happily ever after. Right?
That’s pretty much what the Confederacy thought about the Yankees, and it didn’t exactly work out well for them.”
And then there’s the obligatory Quote From A Commie:
The recent Battles of Berkeley have shown that right-wing defense groups can acquit themselves admirably in street-fights, but hard experience has taught Lefties that an all-one-tactic mentality is a good way to give your opponents time to figure out how to counter you. If righties going to build things, they need to look at how the lefties are doing it, because they’ve been working on it for forty years. To paraphrase Trotsky, you may not be interested in politics, but politics are interested in you — and you can learn a lot from the people who’ve been working them to their advantage.”
