Thirdly, Montana is an open-carry state. Consequently, when antifascist 
forces started talking about armed direct action, it created a real 
sense of panic. As I repeatedly explained to them in long-distance 
midnight calls, these antifascists had not laid any groundwork in 
introducing, much less explaining themselves or their tactics. I could 
easily envision a confrontation between armed Nazis on one side and 
armed non-local anarchists on the other. Obviously, that would have been 
an unbelievable disaster in every respect.

I thought any three of these scenarios would have been profoundly 
demoralizing and would have represented a significant setback for both 
the Whitefish community and for all of us trying to build a strong 
resistance to all that Trump enables and represents.
