This kind of bullshit was exactly what happened in Kansas which helped precipitate the civil war.

You know, I'm starting to think that may be the only option at this point. Luckily our enemy is largely made up of anti-gunners, so...

The problem with this line of thinking is you're missing information. You can look and see the bias in the media clear as day and you might think it's something new. but it's not.

Back in the 60's and 70's leftists engaged in thousands of bombings of homes and business, collateral damage be damned. The media covered for them then just as they do now. Their motivations and political leanings were downplayed and focus was instead shifted over to peaceful protesters.

So the notion of the flower children of the left is deeply ingrained in society but no one spends much time thinking about the ecoterrorists.

If you were willing to fight for your convictions, you would have done so by now.

Everyone wants someone else to first take up the sword.

you haven't yet met your real enemy in your mind. They tend to have organization and guns.

It's called "Bleeding Kansas", if anyone wants to look into it. Northerners and Southerners traveled to vote whether or not Kansas would be admitted to the Union as a free or slave state. Extremists on both sides goofed each other.

Yup, it went bad real quick. John Brown was known for the raid on Harpers Ferry, but years before that in 1856 he'd led a militarized company in Kansas territory going door to door killing pro-slavery men. Basically knock on the door, get the man of the house outside and then execute him. http://kansashistory.us/pottamassacre.html.
