At some point I fully anticipate they’ll end up messing with someone who is mentally ill, on drugs, or just snapped who pulls out a weapon and starts just firing into the crowd.

The media will try to exploit that for all its worth but in practice it’s likely to have a chilling effect on the protests. A lot of why they’re so aggressive now is they believe they can do whatever they want and when protestors start getting shot(even if it’s just a single incident of someone shooting up a protest) will make a lot of the casuals stop showing up.

The opposite perspective would be that the incidence of violence is the only thing that keeps these things going. Thats the dirty little secret neither the left or the 1A crowd is willing to admit (the far left definitely knows and admits it but the far right seems more interested in viewing this strictly as a war exercise divorced from the psychology). If they were actually peaceful for a sustained period no one would GAF and casuals wouldnt bother showing up. A shooting to justify more rioting? The nihilist zoomers and millenials would be back there again, waiting for some blacks or antifag to throw the first brick.

I can't help but credit divine providence that misguided accelerationists haven't staged a false flag attack. There was one guy caught with national guard copycat gear who might have been on his way to do something like that but it's amazing others haven't planned and executed such measures. It would be incredibly easy and during chaos like this there's a high chance the perpetrators could get away with it too.

they seem to want a hot war and they're morons. If you shut down the roads leading in, which would be trivially easy to do, there's no more gas coming in and they won't be able to move very far outside their urban containment zones and they lose home field advantage if they try.
