Vast majority of domestic terrorism in the US is from right wingers.


Horse and droppings.

Let's look at the list of left wing on right wing violence....shall we?

Please note - each and EVERY one is documented by another source.

Over 600 ATTACKS (Verbal, Physical, Weapons) since President Trump was elected.

...

Their obstacle is that they can't bring their gun to do harm? I'm not sure what you mean.
Knife attacks, plowing cars through crowds, bombs, illegally gaining firearms.

Honestly I don't let fear keep me home. Money might, but not fear.


Knifes get confiscated by security, Blizzcon is inside so don't have to worry about cars, bombs I assume also would be identified and confiscated by security, same with any illegal firearms.

I would be a lot more worried if they let people bring guns to Blizzcon, even if they did have a permit. I'm not worried about anything else you listed because there are security rules against them and they're not allowed.

You just unironically linked us a Breitbart article as a legitimate source of information. Oh my god.

That's gonna be a major yikes from me. Let me just dig up my source to contradict you from the unbiased news website www.LeftWingersNeverDoAnythingWrongAndAllRightWingersAreEvilIncarnate.com

The amount of hyperbolic paranoia in this thread doesnt surprise me at all but it sure is crazy. Nothing gonna happen at blizzcon. I'm 100% positive that there are armed guards lurking the building.


Ironic, eh? That even liberals will hire armed guards for security, but look down their noses at someone who carries their own weapon. Kind of like the Hollywood elite with their bodyguards and mansions surrounded by walls. Living truly "gun free" is only for the six figure salary and below crowd... lol

...Please, by all means proceed. I mean are we talking about the guy who supported Bernie Sanders who shot up a Softball Team, or the Democrat who shot up a concert, or the anti-NRA Democrat Cop who went on a shooting Spree in LA, or the guy who tried to shoot up a charity organization because he was pro-gay marriage?


I have never heard of any of these except the first one. I even live in the LA metro area and I've never heard anything about someone going on a shooting spree near here recently. And I do pay attention to the news.

Are you sure dude?
Yes I am sure. I pay attention to these. Just like it's more than 90% likely to happen in places where people can not carry guns to defend themselves. The ones who do this are almost never rightwing. I am not even sure that the most recent one wasn't done by a socialist or not, because we are talking how rare it is for the psycho to be right wing.

If they take knives, then guns are even less likely. Then again what you are afraid of happens more often in places where you cannot carry a gun legally.

Can you link some sources then?
We actually posted an update on the BlizzCon site about security about 2 weeks ago. Sorry for the less than timely reply to the thread today as I've been super busy finishing up last minute BlizzCon things!

https://blizzcon.com/en-us/news/22564764/blizzcon-2018-entry-points-update-be-sure-to-arrive-early

First, in order to keep up-to-date with the latest security standards for conventions like BlizzCon, this year there will be metal detectors in addition to bag checks at each entry point where you show your BlizzCon badge. You’ll need to pass through these security measures every time you want to enter the convention area.

You really got my hopes up there. I was actually hoping that was a real website. =_= Still, good post.

However, it seems real partisans are apparently starting to flock to this thread, so I better bow out now.

Hope you guys at least keep it civil, ya durn angry folk! (I have to stay out of it because I'm an Imperialist, and more extreme in my views than most) :(
Are people actually going to Blizzcon this year? I thought it was already stated nothing will be announced?

The best part is this is one of their examples of "left wing violence":

June 15, 2018: Man has MAGA flag stolen at rally.


Violence against flags? HOW DARE YOU!
So... your concerns are now laid to rest? Woohoo! Thread issue solved.


I mean yeah, they pretty much already were in my OP because I'm going to go anyway. I just had some anxiety about it, but reading what other people said I think I'm alright now. Thanks for all the helpful replies!

Could you also google them yourself. I don't really mind too much, but honestly it's not hard to do.

LAPD Officer https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christopher_Dorner_shootings_and_manhunt

Pro-Gay Marriage Guy: https://wjla.com/news/local/chinatown-shooting-leaves-two-wounded-78851

Go ahead and look into it yourself.

Also lol@counting verbal "attacks" as violence.

Even with the amount of security there, with everything that's going on right now in the news, I honestly can't really lie and say that I'm not at least a little bit worried/anxious about something like that possibly happening at Blizzcon.

I'm not going to let my fear get to me of course and I'm still going to go, but it's hard to shake this feeling and it really sucks.

Does anyone else feel the same at all? Any suggestions on how to feel better about it and not let it ruin your enjoyment of Blizzcon?


When it's your time to go, you won't be late trust me, wither by someone else's actions, your own or just old age

Death is 1 for 1 and that's 100% odds you will die one day, where you go after that should be the concern, I know it's not popular these days to believe in God, but you should consider it serious sometime on your own and make your own opinion not based on mine or anyone else's opinion

Personally I believe in God as the Bible says, and do not fear death or dying at all

a) don't live in Europe
b) Canada has bailed out the US in many more battles than the US has ever bailed us out.
c) the only country to beat you on your own soil is Canada.


Mexico won a few battles in what is now the US during Texas independence, and 1812 was the British, not the Canadians.

Canadians are lol generally. Just look at who you elected president, if you guys had any balls you would laugh him out of office and vote Jordan Peterson in.

How bad is it when I shoot better than you, !@#$ better than you, bench press more than you, vote out patsies, and know more Canadian history than a Canadian?


You know Canadian history eh?? It's Prime Minister NOT president!

If you think that's actually a relevant reply to what I had to say then, well, you're wrong. Not going to call you names about it because of how strict the rules on the forums are but, I suggest getting your information from sources that aren't Breitbart. Y'know, places that aren't just going to go looking really hard for any and every attack that could be vaguely assumed to be motivated by left-wing politics, while brushing a ton of right-wing attacks under the rug. You unironically linked a news source that's known to be more biased and partisan than fox news. Again, not going to directly insult you over it in a place like this, but I'll give you an other yikes.

LOL thanks. I'm bowing out after this last reply too. Politics in forums aren't usually my jam, and I don't want to add to the derailing or anything.
