Every once-in-a-while I like to make a prediction about social trends, future sociopolitical events or the outcome of boxing matches. I have a pretty good record. I predicted the election of Trump in surprisingly accurate detail on the day Trump officially announced. I once predicted a boxing match result to the round, to the minute and so precisely that the Honduran migrant workers refused to work with me again as they believed I was in league with the devil. When I'm right I'm exactly right. I wish i could predict Stock Markets or my wife's moods. But this yearly super-prediction isn't great or funny or going to win anyone a penny on sports betting. its a very sad and terrible prediction:
We are going to see three modern-day versions of the 1960s and 70s 'Radical Left' horrific mass-murder/suicide events. All over again.
- We are going to see at least one terrible incident where the more radical 'BLM' types will bunker down for a bloody siege and suicidal stand-off with police. In this case, I'd point to the 'MOVE' disaster [which is actually in 1985 despite the group being associated with late-60s style militant black groups] but the comparison of what is coming can also be made to similar Black Panther-like groups Vs Police in the 1960s. We are just a Summer or two away from a Philadelphia type 'Blacks vs Police' situation. Look for similar numbers of a dozen killed.
- There is going to be a 'Charles Manson' incident happening soon enough. Look for this to come out of an 'AntiFa' type group as one influential male is, inexplicably, able to convince young women to join, pledge allegiance to him and carry out a horrific murder of a family/gathering of what they imagine are 'Fascists' but will be people related to Trump, supporters or Republicans. Look for the same demonic murders (pregnant women stabbed to death) and things like 'Pigs' scrawled on walls.
- And for those who remember or know about Jim Jones. It will happen again and soon. I believe it will happen as it becomes clearer that Trump will not only carry out a full term in office but is looking increasingly likely to win 2020. Look for a sizeable strain of Left-Wing types to build and isolate themselves into a commune. Watch for the commune to quickly start imploding on itself in paranoia, mental illness, drug abuse/misuse and what will ultimately end in a horrific murder/mass suicide scenario.
Part of the reason for scrawling out these prediction is to point to the radical sociopolitical insanity and violence the USA has already experienced before (and not that long ago) and maybe let us take a look back. I do believe younger people might not even be aware of some of these incidents or that radical left-wing violence is nothing new in the big picture.
The 'Black Resistance' tragedy in 1985 here:
The Manson Family Murders:
The Jonestown Massacre:
Within 3 years we will see surprisingly similar incidents act themselves out all over again. If there is any hope, I also predict the body counts will be lower and maybe half that of the older versions.
I hope I'm wrong for once!
