Where would conservatives be without manufactured hysteria?

Did you know tomorrow is going to be the actual Battle for America, a/k/a the Antifa Apocalypse?

A series of anti-government, leftist rallies set to descend on major cities nationwide Saturday is drawing the attention of local officials, who, like the organizers themselves, fear the events could be hijacked by violent masked anarchists.

The leftwing "Refuse Fascism" group is using Nov. 4 as its kickoff for demonstrations in nearly two dozen U.S. cities -- protests it says will continue "day after day and night after night -- not stopping -- until our DEMAND is met." The "DEMAND" is the removal of President Trump and Vice President Pence.

The gatherings are being described as a kind of "Antifa apocalypse" on rightwing media, according to The Washington Post, with several sites expressing particular alarm about the loosely-defined left-leaning group that preaches a version of ferocious anti-government chaos that often uses "domestic terrorist violence," according to a recent FBI report.

Just Google November 4th, especially on YouTube. The warnings are everywhere. And guess what? They believe them. It's really a small Communist group, possibly Russia-backed, who planned it. Vladimir Putin would love it if you come!

J.J. McNab, a writer who tracks right-wing extremism, says the rhetoric surrounding the event from extremists is much more directly violent than usual. Here's a few samples:

If there's an event near you tomorrow, it would probably be a good day to stay in and binge on Netflix.
