    It was in an earth day comic . But I believe Pogo author Walt Kelly had used it before . The original saying was from Commander Perry in the Battle of Lake Erie . (we have met the enemy and he is ours ) .
    Here is the comic I remember .

    POGO was a regular strip in the comics section of my local paper back in the day. Your memory amazes me yet again.

    Today the nation was treated to Trump dipping his toe into the waters of dictatorship. His use of an 1807 law was misapplied, no doubt on the advice of fatman Barr.

    I answered Trumps legitimate use of the Insurrection act in the other post . Suffice it to say when it was used to put down union organizing it was misused . When it is used because local leaders are afraid to confront pajama boys nihilists on the streets throwing gasoline in Bud light bottles then it is up to the Federal Government to protect life ,and the property of the people .

    Those pajama boys nihilists are now uncovered to be white supremacists posing as antifa.

    You have no proof that ANTIFA was involved and neither does the dufus. That never stopped him before though so what's your excuse?

    Your link only applied to a fake Twitter account. I don't think there is any evidence that White Supremacists (all 75 of them) are on the streets faking it as violent Antifa members.

    There are a lot more than 75 white supremists. Didn't use the caps on purpose.

    Yeah, I'm sure there are, but there's not many. Ever see any of their demonstrations? If two dozen show up, it's a big turnout.

    This Antifa group is just the latest manifestation in a long line of leftist agitator groups going back at least to SDS or Weather Underground that led riots in the 60s ;and 2 of them Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn were mentors to the community agitator ,the emperor . Their favorite weapon back then was the bomb. They kept up their domestic terror activities until at least the Brinks job in 1981 . It is a clever deception and false flag to say that White extremists are doing the attacks. Nothing on Twitter can be taken at face value . They have already demonstrated their political biases .
