Antipathy for antifa and “elections”

Before the election, someone asked me what I thought about President Trump’s comment about the Proud Boys: “Stand back and stand by.” I replied that if Biden won the election, there wouldn’t be any right-of-center groups rioting, burning, destroying and looting; but if Trump won reelection, I “guaranteed” there would be leftist groups like Antifa that would.

So on election night Trump was leading in almost all of the key battleground states. Suddenly, vote processing stopped there for a couple of hours, then restarted, and suspiciously, Biden began gaining ground, eventually passing Trump to take the lead in all but North Carolina. A few days later, all of the major news media - including FOX - called Biden the winner. Even so, there was no rioting, not even so much as a single incident of Trump supporters attacking jubilant Biden voters partying in the streets. No Proud Boys retaliation.

Then last Sunday, Nov. 15, hundreds of thousands of Trump supporters held a rally - not a riot - in Washington, D.C. to show their appreciation for President Trump with a celebration of pro-Trump/USA flags, cheers and chants. Then darkness descended. Fiendish Antifa thugs arrived and waded into the by-then thinned out ranks of Trump supporters, rioting, screaming, bullying and beating them. Such is liberals’ progressively cancerous version of democracy. I rest my case.

Except for this: By now you’ve probably heard of Dominion Voting Systems (DVS) and allegations of corrupt software manipulating voting totals to give Biden those “catch up and go ahead” votes in the key battleground states of Nevada, Arizona, Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Georgia. Their website,, has a map that shows states that have counties using their system. That page declares that it is used in 28 states and Puerto Rico, including nine of the top twenty (population) counties and “serving more than 40% of U.S voters & growing.”

The map reveals that DVS is used in all of those key battleground states - except one not mentioned above - that we watched on election night and the days after as Biden’s vote totals caught up to and passed Trump’s. The one exception that doesn’t use DVS is North Carolina - the one key state where Trump kept his substantial lead. Is that just a coincidence, or are there more sinistral forces at work? It warrants a serious investigation. The fate of our voting process - and our republic’s future - is at stake.
