Will the 2016 election spark armed revolt across America? According to some, the answer is “yes,” and it doesn’t matter who wins.  In a post published Tuesday at Natural News, Mike Adams suggests that chaos will break out in under 100 days, regardless of the victor.

“If Trump wins,” he said, “the left goes full terror.”

He added:

As I’ve publicly predicted numerous times over the last year, if Donald Trump wins, the radical extreme leftists go on a violent rampage that leads to the rest of us begging for martial law. After half a dozen cities burn with riots and looting, Trump invokes a national emergency, deploying National Guard troops across the most devastated urban areas, and the radical left finds itself in a shooting war with the government.

The same applies if Hillary Clinton wins, he said:

If Hillary Clinton wins, all the Trump supporters who have been violently assaulted, spat upon and physically attacked by the radical left un-holster their concealed weapons and start shooting back. This quickly escalates into open warfare between lunatic leftist Hillary supporters and armed Trump “Second Amendment” people who basically figure they’ve got nothing left to lose anyway, so why not fight to save America?

This, he said, was pointed out by a comment posted at the Burning Platform:

With the rise of Donald Trump, the plan of the political elites has been to provoke violence and blame it on him, thus scaring the normal populace. Early-on there were the road-blockings, the threatened riots, the cancelled events in Chicago and Cincinnati, the beatings, the police ordered to “look the other way”…and it has continued: The screaming harassment and physical attacks on Trump supporters as they leave his rallies. The spitting. The intimidation. The thrown eggs. The shoves and punches. The cars blocked and damaged. The hats snatched off people’s heads, stomped on, and then burned on the ground. All of it approvingly ignored or downplayed by the mainstream media.

And through it all, the Trump brigades remain oddly docile.

The elites and their leftist thugs doubtless have concluded that Trump supporters are incapable of retaliating. In other words, the elites and their supporters see the Trump movement as placid and toothless. People may be attacked and abused at will, without consequence.

The commenter added:

That is going to be shown to be a big mistake. The people who support Trump are increasingly well-armed, and increasingly seething with justifiable rage. For now they hold back. Donald Trump himself has repeatedly observed that “the safest place in America” for anti-Trump protesters is at Trump rallies. And that is true. For now (except for the one old cowboy who punched out the protester, he was an octogenarian outlier). Why is this? Why the docility in the face of clear provocation?

Trump supporters, the commenter said, know full well that any retaliation will be instantly seized upon by the press and used to further the notion that Trump is dangerous and invokes violence.  Supporters endure the physical assaults, the theft and vandalism for the sake of the candidate.  But that won’t always be the case:

But what happens after the election? It matters not who wins. If Hillary Clinton is elected, by hook or by crook, the mass movement harnessed by Donald Trump will be free to respond to physical attacks. If Donald Trump wins the Presidency, there will similarly be no reason to continue to endure physical attacks and humiliations by the street thugs of the Democrats. Whether Trump or Hillary Clinton is in the White House, there will be no reason to hold back.

Adams goes on to note that a Clinton victory would set off what he called “an immediate popular revolt.”

“I can’t overstate this point,” Adams said.  “Things are at a breaking point in America, and the only thing holding back a mass revolt right now is the looming election, which presents at least a glimmer of hope to the people of America that they might beat back tyranny and government oppression with a Trump victory. If that possibility is taken from them — either by the election being stolen at the ballot box or already pre-stolen by outrageously biased media deceptions — many of them will conclude that they really have no remaining option other than ‘refreshing the Tree of Liberty with the blood of patriots and tyrants’, to quote Jefferson.”

We heard this kind of talk before — specifically, in the months ahead of Obama’s re-election.  The situation then was quite different, however, and things have escalated quite a bit with the rise of violent anti-cop groups like Black Lives Matter and the deliberate murder of police officers across the country.

America has already suffered one civil war, and it wasn’t pretty.  We certainly don’t want another.
