Most Ominous Quote of the Week – December 12, 2020

“I don’t know how this ends without violence and death.”

Clint Watts, a Senior Fellow at the Foreign Policy Research Institute and at the Center for Cyber and Homeland Security at George Washington University, expressing concern about the response by right-wing extremist militia groups to Donald Trump’s loss

Watts also believes the worst is yet to come, adding, “They now have had time to think about what they want to do.  They have heard continuous false claims – which they want to believe – and now they are being pushed and pointed to places to mobilize.”  Watts noted the dynamic could intensify after Trump is ejected from the White House, COVID-19 becomes less of a threat, and there are more public targets as people start returning to public life.
