Posted on 01/18/2013 4:00:59 AM PST by Evil Slayer
The Obama administration's current warpath against so-called "gun violence" -- which is Newspeak for non-violence committed by non-criminals with their non-illegal private property -- is a brazen challenge to America's manhood. The progressives have apparently decided that this is the moment when they can play their ultimate authoritarian hand, and let the chips fall where they may. They believe, in other words, that this is the moment when they may be able to break America at last, one way or another.
Through Obama's forceful, smug insistence on taking action in defiance of Congress, along with the aggressive urging to do so from his sycophants in the progressive elite -- from the vice president and the senate majority leader on down -- the leftists are engaging in a game of chicken with the American spirit that is disturbing both for its immediate intentions and for its revelation of their thought process and game plan.
In light of the well-known fact that their proposals and trial balloons will be judged by millions of Americans to be an outright violation of constitutionally protected liberties -- and liberties of the most emotionally trenchant nature, namely those related to the very foundations of limited government -- the progressives' deliberate projection of haste and intransigence on gun control must not merely be taken at face value, and judged on its "merits." It must also be interpreted -- in other words, one must ask precisely what they are hoping to achieve by attacking the most deeply held principles of so many Americans in such a heavy-handed fashion.
It seems to me that there are two plausible interpretations of their open chastisement of "all this debate" over Second Amendment concerns, i.e., their boisterous spitting upon the U.S. Constitution.
The first option is that they believe the citizenry of

The time is near at hand which must determine whether Americans are to be free men or slaves.
"But as the same constitution which gives the Commons a power to check the King by withholding the supplies, gives afterwards the King a power to check the Commons, by empowering him to reject their other bills; it again supposes that the King is wiser than those whom it has already supposed to be wiser than him. A mere absurdity!"
The writer seems to dismiss women with the title of this piece.
“The challenge facing the men of America — not the mere “males,” but the men — is becoming clearer, starker, and more essential every day.”
Women are arming themselves. What about them? Do they not count?
That's going to turn out well...
Absolutely, stunning, totally-true article about the situation. Wow. This is a must read and needs to get to Rush Limbaugh and every other conservative talk-show host for mention as soon as possible.
The postulation works both ways:
If Americans are too chicken to fight against federal gestapo thugs, then those same Americans are too chicken to pound on doors and demand that people surrender their weapons.
Nobody can guess what will happen until it happens. It’s all conjecture.
The only American example we have of what happens when the federal government declares war on its citizens is the Civil War when the army broke in two and we had a war.
The other example we can look at is Libya. When Kaddhafi ordered his army to attack Libyans, more than 75% deserted and returned to their provinces to protect their families. Kaddhafi and his elite mercenaries ended up dead after the deserters joined with the provincial militias and wiped them out.
I will stand alone and fight tyranny if need be.
At least somebody’s willing (and so far, still able) to talk about the problem.
If so-called “conservatives” aren’t drawing up impeachment documents, they should be.
Hundreds of thousands of Americans have died fighting for the freedoms that we are allowing the Left to take away during this un-American president’s tenure in office. Shame on the U.S. for allowing this small group of Marxist revolutionaries to take over our country without firing a shot.
The fight to keep and bear arms is the hill to die on. It is the bedrock of individual rights in this country.
“That sissy metro-sexual against American Men?”
No—hussein is using children as his “card” this time in order to garner sympathy from a majority of people who have no education or understanding of history and/or the Constitution.
I worry about that. At the most simplistic level, all political systems are either Collectivist or Individualist. Socialists, Communists, Fascists, and Democrats are all Collectivists. There are few examples of Individualists systems -- what we are trying to preserve is perhaps the only one.
Men in a collective can do very bad things -- peer pressure, shared, guilt, whatever. Groups do things that individuals will not do (are unwilling to do). Will a group of cowards pound on a door and take away a father from a screaming family? Yes, a group of cowards will do that -- because they are a group.
So the question is: Will an individual stand strong against tyranny, even when it travels in packs? Some indivuals will, certainly. But as many men have become neutered, the pool of courageous individuals declines -- but the mass of cowardly group-thinkers who will do anything they are told to do is probably about as large as ever. That's bad.
It is gut check time.
Article seems to have been pulled...
They are, in the majority, already on Obama’s side. Women, esp. single women, pretty much elected him.
“I worry about that. At the most simplistic level, all political systems are either Collectivist or Individualist.”
Good point. What Americans fear is that they will need to stand alone if confiscation starts, but back up that individual with a dozen men and the recipe changes - strength in numbers.
Conservatives, at present, are crap at organizing. But once they get going, there are none better.
There’s legislation going forward in some states to arrest and disarm federal fascists. When the individuals states band together and pledge to back individual citizens, then we have another different scenario. I’ve never seen this before, and patriots are running for state legislative seats that will make this happen. We have one individual running for a special election state house seat. His platform is resistance to the federal government, and he’ll likely win the election.
Many who are older will see there is nothing to lose when the other option is living under the thumb of government tyranny with the sheep that are left.
There are others that will lick the hand that feeds them.
Gun Violence is a euphemism for Gun Ownership, which is what the left wants to restrict, for obvious reasons.
In case any of you were not aware, Ruger has a feature on their website right now that allows you to send a message to your elected representatives with a few mouse clicks.
Article still there.
[Joke] Nobody here can stand up to A-10s and the O-Holes new LGBT battalions wont hesitate to use them on you clingers The fact is ... and Im not advocating anything just stating the obvious, that these A$$holes can be beat with Ruger 10-22s ... hope you have enough candles ... January Sale at IKEA and get some meatballs too ... lol [End Joke]
Kaddafi ended up dead after Obama intervened with air power, weapons, technical support, and covert boots on the ground. Without that intervention, Kadaffi would likely still be in power.
You've got a friend in me, LLS. I'll fight from the same foxholes if it means knowing that my brother is a FReeper.
That ship has sailed and most males, I hate to refer to them as “men” have made their choice. As demonestrated by the results of the 2008 and 2012 elections, their choice was,”Enslave me dear leader,I wish to lick your boots and kiss your ass forever”. Makes me physically sick every time i think about it.
I hate to be branded a "racist," but I'm going to say this out of respect to the truth:
You all know damn well that this won't be a matter of us fighting against a few PC fag officers in the Army/Navy or some boot-wearing lesbians in APCs.
This fight will be white vs. black. You have the overwhelming majority of blacks voting for Obama because he's black. Obama's and Holder's legions will take their marching orders from their Fuhrer because he's their sugar daddy. He's promising THEM riches and redistribution. White people aren't any part of his plan, you can bet on that, and the people knocking on your doors won't be LEOs serving search warrants. They will be heavily-armed ghetto thugs, trained on the streets in the art of gang-banging, utilizing government-provided weapons to "kill whitey."
This exonerates governments from being involved. They can just chalk it up to "gang violence," and they get guns out of the hands of the "bitter clingers."
The one very short-sighted issue with this: blacks are still a population minority. At some point white people will realize they are targets and will cease tolerating racist home invasions.
Make no mistake, Obama and Holder are fomenting a race war in this country.
When will the American men get tired of being pushed around by this wretched homosexual pansy? I guess the answer is that there aren’t many “men” left in America. The rest of them are too busy with their mani-pedis, applying lotions, sipping fat-free lattes, etc.
TO ALL, FYI;
Please use the correct terms;
1. The revolutionary war is correctly termed;
2. The forces of the O-Hole are counter- revolutionary;
3. A reactionary is an individual that holds political viewpoints which cause them to seek to return to a previous state; a restoration of the founders intent.
4. CWII is incorrect;
5. The coming troubles god forbid should be called The War of Restoration
End information bulletin; alphadog is done barking.
Excerpted from a Salon article last April.
I was working as an independent contractor for an Israeli company when the Libyan civil war broke out. You don’t have a clue what you’re talking about.
Your no racist when you speak the truth ... Didnt the Obama-Phone-Zombies [hereafter OPZs] threaten to kill whitey if someone decent got elected?
There is a $hit load of older(wiser and informed ) people out there and many are waiting for an excuse.
Tell that to the Afgans who kicked USSR a$$.
This whole game only works so long as everyone plays by the rules.
When Rule 308 gets invoked, having 8 orders of magnitude more opponents is not a winning position.
Let us all pray that we never have to fight against any other Americans. I find comfort in knowing that I am NOT alone. GOD bless you brother... GOD bless us all.
We're gonna need his blessings. Bad days are coming our way.
Have you forgotten WACO? After all, it was for the children!
Actually, 1/3 of Americans fought the King, Another 1/3 supported the King, and 1/3 simply did not care which way the war turned out!
Tell the Afghans what? About the January [candle] Sale at IKEA? perhaps you do not understand what I meant.
Send a private msg.
PM sent to you.
I am praying every day.
I saw this behavior deeply embedded in corporate America. People are attracted by popularity and without a deep sense of right and wrong, lacking confidence in their own ability to overcome personal challenges, they rationalize compromising morales and justify following orders that benefit their own self interest.
Yes, that is why they were known as three percenters.
Thanks, it came back :-)
“Have you forgotten WACO?”
Nope. I see Waco as a giant cluster flock by incompetent and gutless worms who were defeated and lost the initial battle. Most people forget that the ATF surrendered to the women and children guarding the church. The ATF tough guys walked away with their hands in the air 15 minutes into the firefight.
Because the ATF fat slobs had to call in tanks, snipers and criminals with poison gas to defeat women and children, some people are equating that with how tough the ATF is.
For me, Waco showed that the ATF is a clown posse that knows squat about combat. It also tells me that the ATF is nothing more than a neo-gestapo terrorist organization with a mission to terrorize and murder women and children.
Ditto that, Sarge.
