Texas Police Instructor Warns Antifa in "Public Service Announcement." The Left Goes Nuts.
The Antifa terror organization, for all its bluster and violence, has yet to face the full wrath of Texan gun-owners.
Last week, Texas police officer and academy instructor Phil Ryan wrote a warning to those that would damage statues throughout the state. Ryan points out that under Texas law, it'd be perfectly legal to use deadly force against an Antifa hoodlum bent on destroying historical effigies.
Here's the full post:
Of course, leftist media sources immediately set off discrediting Ryan, much in the way they intentionally misrepresented James Damore as a misogynist.
Taking his post wildly out of context, leftist writers accused Ryan of:
- "Urging" his followers to use deadly force against vandals, even though he doesn't.
- Mentioning specifically Confederate statues to imply Ryan is a white supremacist, even though his post makes no mention of any specific type of monument.
- "Endorsing" the "legal justification for murder", even though Ryan simply pointed out the law and made no comment for or against it.
Many of these outlets also implied that Ryan was not actually a police officer and even went so far as to suggest he was either impersonating one or had been previously fired.
Our research reveals that not only was Ryan a decorated member of the Texas Rangers, he's been stabbed and shot in the line of duty and served three terms as Sheriff of Wise County. Ryan was also responsible for the arrest of serial killer Henry Lee Lucas.
Ryan's post makes clear two important points:
While Antifa aren't the only ones capable of violence, their actions are completely in the wrong.
Just because something is legal doesn't mean it's a good idea.
So take note, Antifa. When you all decide to bring your violence and destruction to Texas, you're not getting away with it — Texans are cutting you a break because of human decency.
Stay alert. Stay alive.
