There comes a point when a protest is no longer a protest.
When a protest violates court injunctions, when it risks vital national infrastructure, it becomes an illegal blockade.
And there are times when an illegal blockade becomes more than an illegal blockade.
When it starts to devolve into setting trains on fire, attempting to derail trains (which could cause explosions and hundreds of deaths), an illegal blockade becomes domestic terrorism.

Amid ongoing illegal blockades, there is a concerning possible escalation of the threat.
According to Quebec Premier Francois Legault, illegal blockaders in the Mohawk community of Kahnawake are armed with AK-47s:
“Legault told reporters in Quebec City the government has information from what he called “good sources” that there are AK-47s in Kahnawake.
He says Warriors on the reserve are armed, and the situation is very delicate.”
This is yet another possible escalation of the illegal blockader threat, and the possibility of a violent clash is continuing.
A car was set on fire in Tyendinaga, Ontario, blocking railway tracks close to where multiple illegal blockades have taken place.
This latest act of domestic terrorism comes amid an escalation in danger, with illegal blockaders attempting to set trains on fire, and reports that Mohawk blockaders are armed with AK-47s.
You can view the video of the burning car below:
“A car was engulfed in flames on Wednesday on the railway tracks at Shannonville Road in Tyendinaga, Ont. Firefighters arrived on scene to extinguish the fire and it is currently unknown if protesters set the fire.”

4. Police arrest people doing illegal blockade, no charges laid.
Lots written, nothing said. But 11 people shot at after iconic football game in New Orleans this AM. Someone was detained but not clear it was the shooter.
After years of Islamist terror attacks from Paris to the Riviera that have left hundreds dead, you might think that the French are inured to the fact that they are the jihadists’ favorite target in the Western world. But now they have been shocked into the realization that the situation is even worse than they thought. Last week’s massacre at the monumental Paris Police Prefecture on the Île de la Cité near Notre-Dame cathedral occurred despite repeated government assurances that all possible measures had been taken to prevent further random slaughter. If one of France’s most secure buildings could be infiltrated by a terrorist, commentators are saying this week, no one is safe anywhere.
“This is a major turning point in Islamist terrorism,” says Gilles Kepel, a specialist in Middle East and jihadist studies. “It’s hard to believe that the police [force], which we rely on to protect us and is supposed to be our last rampart against terrorism, can itself be the victim of terrorism, with throats slit in the holy of holies of the Police Prefecture.”
The attack was also a powerful symbol of France’s ingrained, systemic vulnerability to the jihadists. The two countries’ law enforcement systems are too different for an exact analogy, but it’s a bit as if an FBI special agent at the Bureau’s Joint Terrorism Task Force or a CIA operative in the Counterterrorism Center suddenly ran amok. The implications for French — and Western — security are broad and acutely troubling.

In Nam the government had to move the families of the policemen into fortified barracks to keep Charlie from murdering them. The infamous picture of the South Vietnamese General blowing a prisoners brains out helped turn people against the war but the full story is rarely told. The General was the Chief of Police for Saigon, the prisoner was the head of a unit of men that was (during the Tet offensive) going to the homes of all of the police and murdering their families.
This puts a very different slant on the photo.
Martin Sellner is the Austrian head of the excellent classically liberal organization, Generation Identitaire. Patriotic, non-violent, creative, and of course the victims of police and government persecution in many countries for well thought out large signs and demonstrations of national pride.
***New information suggests this is bad information. There is new and better links that may point to the actual mass stabber in Florida, but this is looking like planted info.***

“Terrorist slogans”. Talk about a total betrayal of the people of Australia
A knife-wielding man who allegedly went on a rampage through Sydney’s CBD, leaving one woman dead and another injured, was found in possession of material about “mass casualties around the world”.
The man, later identified as 21-year-old Mert Nay, allegedly fatally stabbed a woman, 21, whose body was found in a unit on Clarence Street about 3pm on Tuesday.
A short time earlier, a 41-year-old woman was found with non life-threatening stab wounds to the back. She was taken to hospital in a stable condition.
During the alleged rampage, Nay was captured on video running through the CBD streets, shouting “Allahu akbar” while being chased by members of the public who managed to apprehend him.

And the terrorist’s concern is who will look after his kids while he is in prison. A stunning question for someone planning to murder hundreds of people, most of whom had kids or are kids.
