Skip to comments.Violence Is Not the Answer...Or Is It?

The Right News received the following email which we feel represents a large portion of Americans attitudes at this time in our history. One day, we just may wake up and find out that our country has been taken away by those in Washington.
From: A Concerned Citizen
Now first off, I am not trying to incite violence. I do have a question though. Why are these politicians surprised when desperate stripped people fight back the only way they can.
These politicians live in their ivory towers, surrounded by police, private security, and their teams of bulldog lawyers while they dictate how every common man and woman should live their lives.
When they implement laws that negatively effect people, it makes sense for people to get pissed. These pissed off citizens can respond in 1 of 2 ways.
1. Diplomatically, we can make phone calls, faxes, emails, organize town hall meetings all in opposition of these treasonous acts and what do OUR elected representatives do? They ignore us or even worse, try to spin everything we say into nutjob gibberish resulting in nothing. If in fact someone is actually successful in challenging them, the team of bulldog attorneys and endless funds only solidifies their decisions. It's a lose/lose situation.
2. Violence. This is the option that is funny to me. I was listening to the radio today and they were talking about the congressman who's BBQ tank propane line was cut. They began going on and on and on about how horrible violence is and how it is never justified. What's so funny about it? These people have effectively bogged the system so far down in BS, that the average person will never have a chance at undoing the damage they have done. Desperate people snap when they have nothing to lose and these politicians are surprised when people react with the only thing they got left?
I have never been the type of person to think the sky is falling, but I am worried for the first time in my life that things are going to unravel. Desperate people who have nothing to lose are going to snap more and more and there won't be a thing anyone can do about it. These politicians who refused to listen to the people who voted them in office are going to become the targets through their own doing, and the whole time they are going to complain that it isn't justified. Well, if they had listened in the first place, people wouldn't have had to resort to violence. It will be their own fault and it's going to be scary to watch.
I sure hope I'm wrong, but what else can be effective against teams of attorneys and endless money other than violence?
Vote em out in November? Yeah right, like the new ones voted in will be any different? What then?
Scary times we live in.
Both parties sit there and accuse eachother of Fear tactics, what these POS’s in their ivory towers don’t understand is that WE are seeing our entire way of life go down the toilet. Not in the future but right now!!!
No, they won't. The reason being is the individual Representatives or Senators do not set the agenda, the party does. Unless the PARTY is changed or eliminated, the mere changing of the individuals is meaningless.
Compare the capture or killing of jihadists. They will be replaced by others who walk to the tune of Islam. As long as Islam exists so will attempts at our annihilation.
In each case we are striking at the wrong entity. We are attacking individuals instead of their ideology. In the struggle for survival either you go for the jugular or you might as well capitulate. Harry Truman decided to stop the bleeding and struck two decisive blows against Japan.
What will it take for us as a nation to finally say, enough is enough and strike the blow(s) to put a stop to the bleeding caused by foreign and domestic enemies???
Who is John Galt?
Cloward - Piven
To be exact it is a fascist agenda ie state control while leaving the figleaf of private ownership .
The state control is for deteriming who gets to provide goods/services,at what amount of profit ie that deemed to be excessive is seized by the politicians for thier own use,who will be allowed to buy goods/services,what amount of goods/services will be allowed to be provided to the public.
Remind the politicians of just what they have done to our country & remind them how Mussolini ended up.
Beer talk. Too many have too much to loose (ultimately, we will loose all) to risk throwing off the commie apparatchik that have infested Washington, DC. And they have just flipped the last card of control over the people - eventually they will deny health care to any (and their families) who oppose the new "status quo". We're in charge now, as these abject bestial, tribal morons cry, we're in charge! And the American ideal will die for a millennium.
loose = lose. Ugh.
Meanwhile, the laws that are passed are insidious in their cleverness. They won't ever do something that can't be justified as kindness and compassion, thereby confusing and flummoxing over half of us. They won't ever confiscate weapons. Instead they will find ways to make owning them and using them so expensive that very few people will be able to afford them.
No - the answer is communication, of all kinds. The pen is mightier than the sword. But, you say, the MSM own communication, not any more. There are a lot more tools at ouer disposal than were availble to Tom Pain and Ben Franklin. We can write, shoot video, haunt social networking sites and more. Look at some of the very clever work being done by young people such as Jason Mattera: http://www.nrbookservice.com/products/BookPage.asp?prod_cd=C7581
My favorite tool is ridicule. http://www.buzzfeed.com/sarahmorgan/obama-zombies-d8 and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KhbYjkxxYc
But, do whatever you are good at, even if it's a crayon drawing. Besides, have you noticed that ammunition is getting really expensive? I don't think the factories can keep up.
Good comments. It is true about the workers in government, as a homeschooler, it has been those who make their living inside that system, that scream the loudest when homeschooling is discussed.
The division between government workers, and private serfs will become the fracture line that will cause civil unrest. I just think that ultimately, it will be the government union workers who will start the violence.
And thank you about Ferfal’s book, I have read his very long post last year before he had a blog. I need to do that today. I have been meaning to get it for awhile.
OK. I think I understand what you mean with the Cloward-Piven reference.
So, are you saying that we shouldn’t go Galt, and crash the system? Are you saying crashing the system just plays into their hands? Because I don’t see how, if enough people stop paying their mortgages, if enough people aren’t paying into the system, the banks precious “liquidity” will be gone. End game of the FED. They won’t have the means to do much IF ENOUGH PEOPLE PARTICIPATE.
Hmmm? What say you?
Oh yes they do understand we are loosing our freedoms....that is the plan of this administration. But I think people are just getting it that Gov. is not about “we the People”....it is about retaining their seats and their control...we just are not settling for crumbs off their table any more.... Rather We’ll feed ourselves.
What happeneds when you poke a tiger in the cage relentlessly, he gives you warning, he growls, an attention getting roar until he’s had enough. They need the citizenry to crack and revert to violence. It is thier justification, thier ongoing claim that Republicans and teaparty people are voilent enemies of the government. We must not give them the satisfaction. When that line is crossed there’s no turning back. Set your sites on November and when all possible hand your representative who ignored you and voted for all this crap a thank you and a flower. I think that would be more distrubing to them.
Well, that is the weak point, isn’t it?
It would have to be a movement, with a month picked out along with a campaign to promote it. Otherwise, it’s just spitting into the breeze.
