I’ve talked about Skunk for years, an Israeli product delivered by spray cannons to quell rioters along their borders along the West Bank, Gaza, and Syria. It’s been around over ten years now, and other products are available that have the same affect…presenting a smell that is so awful the wearer can’t wait to get out of those clothes just to get away from the smell. A BBC reporter described it this way in 2008:
“Imagine the worst, most foul thing you have ever smelled. An overpowering mix of rotting meat, old socks that haven’t been washed for weeks – topped off with the pungent waft of an open sewer. . .Imagine being covered in the stuff as it is liberally sprayed from a water cannon. Then imagine not being able to get rid of the stench for at least three days, no matter how often you try to scrub yourself clean.”
But this was an Englishman who wrote this. The Israeli’s marketed it as harmless, only found when used among certain types of crowds, as India also reported, it had little effect, likely because it was a smell they had become accustomed to.
During the Occupy events in 2011-2012 (remember, it was OccupyPortland that gave birth to Antifa) a colleague in Arizona attempted to replicate skunk by using human feces and a blender, and a Sinex-bottle type delivery system, and field tested it at the Oakland Occupy event. Not very scientific, he reported he was able hide the spray bottle in the palm of his hand, mingle among the crowd and deliver a squirt on the back of a jacket, or pants leg, then walk away, while a friend observed and measured the reaction time.
I use the term “skunk” generically, since I don’t think IDF is willing to sell their product in 20ml plastic bottles. There are all sorts of products out there now, including the essence from real skunks, as well as delivery systems, (bottles) that hide away in your hand while in a crowd, maybe even avoid the notice of a security camera, fit into a backpack, and even pass through a security scanner at the court house. It can even be weaponized into a larger agent, such as a clearing a tent. I had discussed with some west coast buddies using it at earlier bivouac points of Antifa, for a retired Army ranger told me, having smelled something similar, that “it’s the sort of smell, especially in a tent, that causes you to have to get out into fresh air, and out of those clothes, ASAP.” He suggested breaking up the sleep of Occupy volunteers on a cold night in Central Park.
Think about it.
But that was dark alley thinking in 2013. The objectives of modern equalizing have a different purpose. And are directed toward a different psychology. As we have watched Occupy morph into Antifa, and grow in power and range, and level of training, we know we can no longer simply run a few new recruits home because they were skunked on their fresh new blue bandana, or their nose get bloodied. They can easily be replaced now. We now know they are organizationally ranked not unlike a military command, from buck private to squad leader, platoon leader, company commander, but also a battalion commander, with an S1, S2, S3 and S4. And even a public relations officer and legal officer.
Other organizations that don’t utilize ground forces, are still organized along a corporate organizational chart not unlike that of the military.
You might consider incorporating skunk into your thinking on $1000 business suits, Gucci purses, even in the halls of power in Washington.
But you should also know that your objectives should be closer to home mainly because the Left, as Antifa has proved, likes the spectacle and media. And low-risk cheap thrills. Their management, hidden away, removed from the front lines, never think that they could become targets, or that target area could include the elevator foyer, favorite restaurant or golf course.
This is where embarrassment, inconvenience and fear collide. And it is a power we can over them they can never have over us because we move entirely in the dark, dressed as 75 year olds as easily as we might be youngsters on skate boards. We don’t wear “Kick Me” signs tacked to our backs, which, once upon a time, virtually every public official at every level always carried, and should still carry.
We are nameless, and never even brag and they have not yet reached their Stalin or Himmler level of destroying entire towns just for payback against a single outrage against one of their own. (Just know, that is where their thinking eventually goes, if given enough time and power.)
It’s a wide open territory down at city hall.
Just do your homework and planning. Intelligence and security.
So unwrap yourself from what’s going on inside Washington, or even the state capitol, and realize the better way to affect their thinking is to let them watch what it is occurring beneath them at the grass roots.
Give fear a chance.
Make them stop by being afraid just to walk from the parking lot at Target, much less down the sidewalk of their neighborhood after dark. Most of what they do that is illegal they know is illegal.
Remember, the principal mission of Equalizers is to make them stop what they know is wrong or illegal, or, as in the case of school teachers or professors, to be re-woke to reality. Their choice.
They have no power to make you stop being as long as they don’t know who you are or what you look like. (You brag at your own risk.)
