KVAL-TV ^ | 5/12/13

Posted on 05/13/2013 7:33:19 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

EUGENE, Ore. -- Dozens of moms spent their Mother's Day marching against gun violence.

The 14th annual Million Mom March in Eugene stepped off from EWEB Waterfront Plaza Sunday afternoon.

Before the march, Mayor Kitty Piercy and other women spoke about the need for stricter gun laws.

Betsy Steffensen helped organize Eugene’s march, and said the event gives moms the power to make a huge change in the world.

This is all a misunderstanding: it’s really the Multi-Mom March.

I’d like to see their giant magnet that they’re going to use to gather up all the guns, not only in America, but the world.

Also, while they’re at it, they need to show us the “mass amnesia” machine that removes all knowledge that firearms existed and how to make them.

From the FBI Portland October 29, 2012:

“Today, the FBI released its annual Crime in the United States report for American cities. Nationally, violent crime fell for the fifth year in a row, dropping 4.5 percent (per 100,000 people) in 2011. Property crime fell for the ninth year in a row, dropping by 1.3 percent.In Eugene, there were decreases in the number of rapes and motor vehicle thefts, but increases in the numbers of robberies, aggravated assaults, burglaries, and larceny-thefts. There were no murders/non-negligent manslaughters in either 2010 or 2011.”

NO murders 2001-2012. WTH are they marching for?

These are exactly the people most likely to be victimized by violence. If anyone should be armed it should be them.

Multi-Mom March.

"dozens" showed up??? By my count, the main picture at the article source shows 11. That's not even a Baker's Dozen... title should be: "Almost one regular dozen Mom March"

Guess they missed the “highly publicized” DOJ(?) and Pew info that just came out about the 39%/49% reduction in “gun crimes” since ‘93 despite the huge increase in gun ownership. But they really don’t care about facts anyway. Useless idiots.

In the absence of firearms, a physically stronger person is able to impose his will pretty much whenever he feels like it, or at least whenever another even stronger person doesn’t stop him.

In case these ladies hadn’t noticed, this is not a recipe for female equality.

A 100 pound lady with a Glock has very nearly the same potential lethality as a 300 pound bruiser with a Glock. Possibly greater, since the big guy is an easier target. Without the weaponry the disparity is a good deal more significant.

One problem here is that most of these women have (despite their obsession with it) never suffered physical violence by a male. They really have no idea how vastly they are outclassed in a physical contest.

Shoulda-coulda-woulda....

The breakdown of the two parent family especially with whites into single Mom and kid families has resulted in a large % of American wimmmin who see the government the way families of the past saw God, and add certain minority groups.
They trust it and pin all their hopes on it and to the extent that it fails to deliver they simply blame Republicans for it.

I’m sure they don’t mean to disarm agents of the government.

And that’s the point - no one should be able to resist the government imposing its will on everyone.

IMHO gun ownership IS what reduces crime, but like you say they refuse to believe it.

Women are far more easily swayed by Liberal rhetoric than men because women’s emotion all too often overrides their logic. If you’re a woman and reading this truth upsets you, stop being so emotional.

Remember media math, when it comes to protests in favor of their scared cows:

"Dozens" = Couple of people standing on a corner, shouting at cars

"Hundreds" = A dozen or two people, maybe with signs and a bullhorn.

"Thousands" or "Tens of Thousands" = A couple of busloads of people, mostly Union Reps, standing on the steps of some gov't building (for credibility).

Meanwhile .....

250,000 - 500,000 Tea Partiers on the National Mall in DC = "Crickets Chirping".

Why the Gun is Civilization

A Nation of Cowards


Pacifism: The Ultimate Immorality by Raymond Kraft

Last week, Jack and Jill Pacifisto were walking home through the park after dinner with friends, during which they had spent a few hours discussing the immorality of violence and war and their commitments to send more money to progressive activists over the next year. Suddenly, Tony Thug stepped out of the shadows and pointed a pistol at Jack and said, “Give me your wallet,” and, pointing the gun at Jill, “Your purse.”

“What?” asked Jack, incredulous, “Hey, we don’t want any trouble. We’re pacifists. We aren’t going to hurt you.”

“Not my problem,” said Tony, “Gimme your money.”

So Jack and Jill did, and then Tony said, “And now gimme your watches, rings, jewelry, everything worth anything.”

“Hey,” said Jill, “This is my wedding ring!”

And Tony said, “Not my problem.”

Jack and Jill handed over their wallet, and purse, and all their jewelry and Rolex watches, and then Tony shot them both twice in the chest and picked up the loot and stepped back into the shadows.

As Jill lay dying she whispered, “Jack? Why didn’t you fight back? Why didn’t you have a gun?” Those were her last words.

“I couldn’t,” whispered Jack. “I’m a pacifist.” Those were his last words.

A few days later, Bill Thaxton and his wife were walking home through the park after dinner, when Tony Thug stepped out of the shadows.

“Give me your wallet, your purse,” said Tony, pointing his gun first at Bill, and then at his wife. He did not know that Bill was an old lawman, and had been a Marine sniper when he was young, and was active in the Single Action Shooters Society and had a concealed-carry-permit. Tony assumed that the old man was just an old man with some money and a few credit cards in his wallet walking home from dinner.

“Sorry, friend, I don’t like guns, and I don’t want any trouble,” said Bill.

“Not my problem,” said Tony, “Gimme your wallet, your purse,” he said, waving the gun at Bill’s wife, “Rings, watches, everything.”

“And what if I don’t?” asked Bill.

“I’ll shoot you both. Her first,” said Tony, pointing his gun at Bill’s wife again.

“Well,” said Bill, “Okay, honey, do what he says.”

She tossed down her purse. Bill reached slowly for his left lapel with his right hand and then, like lightning, did a cross-draw with his left and came out blazing with his trusty little 9, nailing Tony three times.

As he lay on the sidewalk dying, Tony Thug was heard to mutter, “Damn, I shoulda stuck with the pacifists . . .”

An acquaintance wrote me last week to tell me proudly how he had been a pacifist since the ‘60s. His letter set me thinking about pacifism, which is the ultimate and vilest form of immorality.

If you are Hitler, or Saddam, or Osama, or Ahmadinejad, your desire to kill those you dislike is at least honest and open. You wear you hate on your sleeve and we know who and what you are. But the Pacifist wears his refusal to resist evil as if it were a badge of honor, and claims it as a sign of his or her absolute moral superiority. The Hitlers and Osamas are at least honest about who they are, the Pacifist is not. Not even to himself.

The German Pastor Martin Niemoller wrote a poem circa 1946 about the quiescence of German intellectuals in the face of the Nazi rise to power that has become famous. Translated, it reads:

When they locked up the social democrats,

I remained silent,

I was not a social democrat.

When they came for the trade unionists

I did not speak out,

I was not a trade unionist.

When they came for the Jews

I did not speak out,

I was not a Jew.

When they came for me

there was no one left to speak out.

The Pacifist says something like this, but, unlike Niemoller, without apology. He says:

When you come for my allies

I will not fight you,

for I am a Pacifist.

When you come for my countrymen

I will not fight you,

for I am a Pacifist.

When you come for my neighbor,

I will not fight you,

for I am a Pacifist.

When you come for my mother,

my father, my brother,

my sister, I will not fight you,

for I am a Pacifist.

When you come for my wife,

my husband, my son,

my daughter, I will not fight you,

for I am a Pacifist.

When you come for me,

I will not fight you,

for I am a Pacifist.

The Pacifist claims that he (or she) is too good to fight against evil, and this is the catastrophic intellectual and moral failure of Pacifism. In the guise of being too good to oppose evil, the Pacifist invokes the ultimate immorality by aiding and abetting and encouraging evil, on the pretext of being too pure, too wise, too sophisticated to fight evil, thereby turning the pretense of goodness and purity into an invocation and license for evil to act without opposition.

The moral stance of the Pacifist is, unwittingly perhaps, homicidal, genocidal, fratricidal, suicidal. The Pacifist says, in effect: “There is nothing good worth fighting for. And there is nothing so evil worth fighting against.”

The Pacifist is willing to give evil free reign, because he or she thinks or feels that fighting against evil is even worse than evil itself . . . an intellectual and moral equivocation of monumentally staggering proportions. In order to be a Pacifist, one must hold that Nazism or Islamism or Communism or any other puritanical totalitarian ideology that seeks to slaughter or oppress all the Jews or all of any other race or tribe is no worse, is not morally inferior, to the existence of Jews and Judaism, or whatever other race or tribe is the whipping boy of the day.

To be a Pacifist, one must hold that acquiescence to a Jihad that seeks to destroy Western Civilization is no worse than Western Civilization, even though the Jihad seeks to extinguish intellectual freedom, religious freedom, political freedom, and ultimately even the freedom to be a Pacifist.

As the English philosopher Edmund Burke said, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” The Pacifist replies, “I am so good that I will do nothing, I will hurt no one, even if that means that good will be destroyed and evil will win. I am so peaceful that I will not discriminate between the goodness of good and the badness of evil, certainly not with enough conviction to take up arms, literally or figuratively, against the triumph of evil over good, of totalitarianism over freedom, of barbarianism over civilization.”

And so the Pacifist, perhaps unthinkingly, unwittingly, mistakenly, is deeply mired in his intellectual confusion, but surely and unequivocally, the epitome of evil itself, For the Pacifist devoutly believes that by refusing to fight against evil he is affirming that he is good, too good and pure to oppose evil, too good and pure to fight evil, to good and pure to kill evil. But in the end, he is the enabler without whom the triumph of evil would not be possible.

good post.

I can think of a few instances where pacifism is a positive thing. The clergy comes immediately to mind. Conscientious Objectors throughout history have found ways to serve their country - think of all the medics who've served (and been killed) over the past generations.

But to use pacifism as a shield to hide behind - as you succinctly put it - is reprehensible.
