A Vancouver, British Columbia group calling themselves the Adbusters recently placed an ad in social media calling upon “tens of thousands of our fellow citizens [to] lay siege to the White House” on September 17, 2020 (The White House Siege—Tactical Briefing #1). The siege is slated to last fifty days ending election day November 3rd.
The flyer begins “All right, all you activists” and specifically names #MeToo, #BLM, #ExtinctionRebellion and invites all anti-Trump protestors. “We want to…spark a revolution with you.” “Are you ready for revolution? We are too.” “We will lay siege to the White House. And we will sustain it for exactly fifty days.”
Their literature advocates the overthrow of the president of the United States—even a coup d’etat. Five years ago, it easily would have been called treason but in the “hate Trump era” fed to us nightly by almost all major media outlets and Big Tech, which censors anything good about the man or conservatism, this is the new normal at least until a Democrat is returned to the White House. In a photograph attributed to this movement, the left third of the White House is pictured with smoke and flames ascending into the sky. Through the windows, one can see flames enveloping the center of the building. All Big Tech outlets from which this information is taken, Google, Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter are conjoined in promoting the September 17 event. All allow its advertisements on their platforms. Their literature uses the words non-violent but they have yet to condemn the violence in Minneapolis, Seattle, Portland, or anywhere else, calling these peaceful protests, while they censor doctors advocating saving lives with hydroxychloroquine.
“All right, all you activists,” their flyer calls them, a much nicer name than anarchists revolutionists or even traitors. After all, the election is just days away. These are Biden supporters. Why not go door to door campaigning for him as in the past, unless you are afraid that most of the “smelly Walmart people” actually like Trump?
Anarchists are instead instructed to “Stay in the streets in August [and] Build for UNITED NATIONWIDE MASS PROTEST Saturday, September 5 [and] DEMAND TRUMP PENCE OUT NOW!” Another flyer shows a drawing of hundreds gathered in front of the White House with their fists raised and clenched in anger, “We will lay siege to the White House. And we will sustain it for exactly fifty days. This is the #WhiteHouseSiege.” Why until Nov. 3, because it is the end date to bring Joe Biden to power and this is what the anarchy is all about.
Continuing, “It’s time … for dramatic, decisive action. Which is why, on September 17th, …we and tens of thousands of our fellow citizens will stream into Lafayette Square, in Washington. D.C.” We “will electrify the U.S. election season — and it doesn’t stop there. Drawing wind from #MeToo, #BLM, [and] #ExtinctionRebellion,” and other hate Trump protest groups.
And then their real intent is identified, “We’ll inspire a global movement of systemic change — a Global Spring — a cultural heave towards a new world order.” New World Order is, and always has been, code for world government. Their literature describes what siege means, “You dig in, hold your ground, and the tension accumulates, amplifies, goes global.” This is the real reason Trump is despised. He opposes the one world government which results in the loss of American independence.
Then the coup conspirators threaten the president. They argue President Trump will not leave the White House voluntarily should he lose the election thus, with the people already assembled, they will “drag Trump from the White House when he loses.” Some elections, as in Gore/Bush were close and not resolved for weeks, and this one only by the Supreme Court. Would the media created mob act prematurely? Of course, they already plan to. Their flyer says so. “We will not let Donald Trump steal the election!” Such an outcome is predictable. The revolutionist and their media outlets are setting the nation up for a second Civil War if this election is too close to call right away.
This pre-election seizure of the White House is a threat to all Americans. We believe that it is designed to bait President Trump into aggressive action that is likely to result in injury or death to someone which would be used to propagandize more escalation. Antifa is not above doing something like this. Bloodshed could then lead to another Civil War.
Since the District of Columbia is constitutionally federal property thus federally managed, Trump could surround the White House with a second fence as with St John’s Church. We recommend the closure of the White House and Lafayette Square to the public until after the results of the election are confirmed. Also, extend endangered parameters to up to a half-mile and enforce no camping in public. If the mob defies the closure, with drones or other emitters, spray the park as needed with skunk juice as the Israelis do to defer intruders on the Gaza Strip. Unwanted guests leave immediately as they cannot stand their smell and do not return for up to six weeks because the smell remains. Consider spraying a week before revolutionists arrive.
Otherwise, Madonna’s comment comes to mind, “Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House” (Women’s March Jan. 21, 2017). If this comes off as their photo so graphically portrays, she and the revolutionaries may get their wish.
