Nonviolent warfare
personal | 9/07/2011 | Louis Foxwell

Posted on 09/07/2011 3:11:55 AM PDT by Louis Foxwell

When Sarah announces there will be a barrage of legal challenges to her personally and to the Tea Party by government agencies and political action groups. We can also expect to see agitators at rallies generating violence. It will get very, very ugly.

Do not expect the MSM to be objective or truthful in all of this. They will be actively promoting chaos and blaming all violence on conservatives. It is vitally important to adopt a nonviolent strategy to counter malicious intent on the left.

We are still a society that respects the truth. We must believe that we can win this struggle by taking the high ground. Should the time come when we are being murdered in the streets by government police action open warfare will be required. Until then we must not engage in acts of violence or retaliate with violence. We can win the hearts and minds of our fellow citizens with reason, truth and justice.

Compromise with leftist dogma is absolutely not acceptable. The destructive force of Marxist doctrine must be understood by all Americans. We must finally bury this evil doctrine. We do this by shining the bright light of truth and reason. We keep the faith with those who love this country and seek its return to greatness.

No compromise, no violence and speak truth into the darkness of deceit. This is our campaign. Now, if we only had a leader who believed these principles and was willing to fight for them. Oh, right, there's Sarah. Don't see anyone else.

Myself I am also aware that on the internet and even here will be some suggestive talk of violence, such of the type that I believe isn’t exactly what we need as it could be subtle instigators.

Of course we are angry but we are NOT going to evolve into a lynch mob.

Not at this moment at least.

I’m not sold on the idea of a non-violent response to violence. If the left wants a fight, and starts things with violence, they will find out very quickly who has the guns and who knows how to use them.

Can you give an example of the legal challenges you expect her to face?

I wasn’t aware that she had anything that she could be challenged on.

Tis true,
Some SEIU or teamster thug or two care to take a bat on someone with a CCW then they be fair game.
Hope it is on camera though.

“Compromise with leftist dogma is absolutely not acceptable. The destructive force of Marxist doctrine must be understood by all Americans. “

Too late! The sheep are fully lobotomized. We now live in “Alice in Wonderland” where nothing is as it seems. It takes work to find the truth. Not many are interested in nor can handle the truth.

We all know about not taking a knife to a gun fight, but taking a gun to one can be pretty chancy, too. Responding to violence with videos of the perps directly uploaded to the web seems more likely to succeed in the long run. Protecting the videographers would justify strong measures, though.

If I'm at a TEA party rally, I always travel with my pal; I've never gone looking for trouble and I've not run from it, and won't begin because you axe me to take a beating and wait until someone is murdered.

You are a nit wit.

First, Sarah has not announced.

Second; standing around holding hands and singing "Kumbaya" is not going to stop the Marxist thugs.

Limp-wristed responses are what is expected from the "weak".

Violence is coming

It will not be initiated by those who have voiced a support for liberty but by those who oppose American style freedom. They are desperately seeking a conservative/Tea Party-labeled crisis to justify their over reaching, over reactive policies and actions.

Remember your last teachable moment with a liberal?

Just as their verbal defense of their parochial ideals always degrades into personal vitriol so to now that their puppet in chief has begun to fail, with arguments void of reason, violence is their only recourse.

Any one not aware or preparing for this is foolish.

Nonviolence is an agressive tactic. It is in your face and invokes rage. Its power is in exposing the evil of violent men.

There have never been firm legal grounds for the countless suits filed against Sarah and the Tea Party.

The few who are brave enough to stand in the breach and receive the blows of ignorance and hate will stand tall though they may be beaten to the ground.

That is the idea, to show the darkness of leftist hate.

Whimpering and skulking are not acts of nonviolence. They are the work of cowards. Nonviolence involves civil disobedience and confronting evil directly and forcefully.

Incidentally, a useful observation from a Nineteenth Century French anarchist: “You can’t avoid violence, you can only choose to be the victim.”

(This is a paraphrase, it’s been a long time since I saw the original. But the thought is there.)

"Nonviolence involves civil disobedience and confronting evil directly and forcefully."

Right; that's what I said.....sit-in's, holding hands, and singing Kumbaya as the country dissolves under the Marxists....you've got a GREAT PLAN, there.

Nonviolence is a workable tactic if ones opponent is civilized. SEIU and the Teamsters Union Management are goons with a long history of violence against unarmed opponents. Using nonviolence also requires a free press that will show what’s actually going on. We don’t have that.

Opponent need not be civilized but the culture must be. A deeper investigation of nv power demonstrates it is most effective when it is proactive and confrontational. The Tieneman Square massacre did not produce immediate change but its long term effects have been substantial. The CPC is still the most opressive regime on earth but is acts with greater circumspection. The sacrifice of freedom loving Chinese has not been forgotten. Their bravery will bring down the reign of terror that is the CPC.

I’m not sacrificing myself to any SEIU or Teamster union punks for some future benefit. If a conflict starts some of them will meet a .308 at near warp speed. If there are going to be bodies in the square, I for one hope they have union cards.

What you are advocating is foolish. Letting yourself be beat to a pulp or possibly killed is not an acceptable response, except for fools who have never been exposed to that type of violence. If you are ever at a tea party rally and try this sh** you are spouting, I hope you are the one lying on the ground bleeding and not some poor fool who listened to you.

Been there, done that. You have no understanding of the power and effect of nonviolence.

Only one of Satan’s minions would ask such a question. First you compare yourself to Christ, then you speak with Lucifer’s tongue.

Begone, evil. We see through you.
