According to a new report from The New York Post (don’t look for it on Twitter), New Yorkers are thinking about getting the hell out of dodge before election day. Nervous that unhinged left-wingers will turn the city upside down if Biden doesn’t win the presidency, some Big Apple residents think they might need to look for higher ground just in case things don’t go the way the left wants them to go.
Nor are their fears unfounded. A recently-leaked NYPD memo shows that the police are preparing for that exact scenario.
“This November 3rd will be one of the most highly contested presidential elections in the modern era. There is also a strong likelihood that the winner of the presidential election may not be decided for several weeks,” the memo advised, telling police officers to be “ready for deployment.”
The New York Post says it was “enough to make some residents run for the hills.”
They spoke to 25-year-old university student Paulo Wei, who said he was going to seek refuge at his family’s farm upstate.
“I felt trapped in the apartment — the protests were overwhelming,” Wei said of the summer racial protests. “It could happen again and I don’t want to be caught up in that. No matter who wins, someone is going to get upset. I’ll come back when everything is settled down.”
The Post also spoke to 31-year-old Andrea, who told a similar story.
“I went to my parents in New Jersey for about two weeks when the BLM protests got bad and the looting started. So I definitely want to get out of here the week of the election,” she said. “I’m thinking if Trump wins, it’s going to be a disaster — the city will be on fire. People are going to go nuts.”
This isn’t a phenomenon limited to New York City, as a recent report in the Sacramento Bee makes clear:
At the Katadyn North America foods plant in Rocklin, where freeze-dried and canned foods are processed and packaged for sale around the West, the rush to meet demand is becoming increasingly intense.
A big reason is the most volatile election season in decades.
“It may be a combination of election craziness, the wildfires, a lot of unrest — political unrest, societal unrest,” said Shawn Hostetter, president of Katadyn North America. “I think there’s a lot of nervousness.”
Leftists have made it clear that they intend to hit the streets if Trump wins reelection, and this year has given us more than enough evidence that when they say they’re going to “protest,” they actually mean they’re going to burn down neighborhoods, stop traffic, and attack police, among other things. Brainwashed to believe that Donald Trump is the living personification of eternal evil, they are primed to go absolutely nuts if Biden fails on November 3rd.
If ever there was a time to prepare for the worst, this might be it.
