And Training? Lots of Training?
When peaceful populations are prepared for violence against them, they suffer less at the hands of violent people. There are a lot of ways to be prepared in a violent age, but proficiency in firearms is probably one of the best preparations that you and your family can make at this time of top-down planned and financed leftist violence and destruction. Peace-loving people do not want to think about that, but there it is.
Consider Good Patriot and Her Message
She is a blonde, blue-eyed, highly vocal woman who has been making gun videos on YouTube for over a year. Most of her videos have garnered fewer than 50K views. But the video below has attracted almost 600,000 views in just 2 weeks. Take a look and try to determine why.
If you haven’t watched her gun videos, you will be tempted to see her as someone full of false bravado. But if you watch and see what she can do, you will see that her words of life are not empty words, but are instead backed up by “words of death” which are true.
The people rampaging and burning Democrat Party-controlled cities of North America have little fear that their lives might be in danger. Not from police. Not from the people whose homes and businesses they are burning and destroying. Not from the people whose jobs they are eliminating and whose freedoms they are stomping on. But perhaps they should. This is not a dress rehearsal, and things that are burned down and killed stay dead and burned. The mob that has no conscience and no fear, should be taught to fear. Sooner rather than later.
Apologies and appeasement only encourage the bullies. The Woke mob never sleeps. It lives to cancel the lives of others. We are warned: Conform or else.
… The purge should have never been allowed to come this far. But the elitists who control universities, school boards, corporations, the media, sports leagues, have surrendered rather than stand on principle, as have a good number of high-profile individuals… A society in which only pre-approved speech can be uttered is not healthy. It’s a tyranny, rancid and terror-filled. The only choice is to resist. ___ Source
We know this is about a lot more than speech. It is about all the freedoms that are guaranteed by the Bill of Rights, and more.
They Are Stomping on People’s Liberties in the Name of “Victimhood”
They are still looking for “the perfect victim,” with which to beat people over the heads. Having expanded the scope of victimhood to include virtually everyone except straight white males without disabilities, they are re-sharpening their swords and coming for you.
Everywhere around us, people are acting cruelly in the name of eradicating physical harm and arbitrary power. Anyone working in a university, cultural institution, or large corporation today has spent recent weeks reading emails, attending meetings, and participating in conversations that are theaters of moral cruelty. White people in such contexts are asked—or required—to admit that they are culpable, that they lack ethical and epistemic authority, that they must listen to and heed the demands of victims of racism. They humiliate themselves, literally kneeling in propitiation.
… such acts of self-debasement [are] no less cruel and terrifying than the violence that they are supposedly meant to resist. Healthy minded people… do not want to suffer in this way—nor do they want to attain power and self-respect at the cost of presenting themselves as a “model of moral victimhood.” __ Politics of Victimhood
It is true, healthy-minded people would not behave that way — particularly if they had any intelligence or self-respect.
Two Starkly Different Approaches to Government
- In a free society, whatever is not explicitly prohibited, is permitted. Here, the people have more allowable choices, and consequently economic prosperity tends to be greater in the long run.
- In a tyranny, whatever is not explicitly allowed, is forbidden. Here, the government has maximum power to control the actions of the people in a total and arbitrary manner.
We would like to maintain a system of government where all the rights that are not legally and constitutionally claimed by a representative federal or state government, naturally belong to the people.
The US Constitution has been a thorn in the side of the grand leftist crusade for hundreds of years, ever since the newly born US government refused to provide support for the French Revolution and its Reign of Terror in the late 18th century. Since then the US has tended to oppose leftist revolutionary movements wherever in the world they sprang up. The US “defeat of the USSR” in the cold war of the second half of the 20th century did not endear the US to the grand leftist crusade either. And the continuing dominant position of the US as the only global superpower cannot help but infuriate China’s CCP and other would-be “kings of the world” such as George Soros and his associates — who help to finance antifa, BLM, and the rest of the motley wave of economic and societal destruction that is further being assisted by the news media, by large parts of academia, and by Democrat Party factions of cities, states, and federal government agencies.
This is one reason why they act out such hatred and feel such a strong need to defeat Donald Trump in November — and then after that to make such an example of him after he leaves office that no one will think to stand up against them ever again.
Try to Distinguish Between the Puppet-Masters and the Cannon Fodder
The ringleaders tend to stay hidden, and let the low level pols, hack media writers, and street-level cannon fodder take all the risks — such as they are. The ringleaders are frightened to their wits’ end that Donald Trump may be re-elected, and then come after them. They cannot allow that to happen. Neither can Communist China allow that to happen, which is why that tyrannical government lends its support to burners of cities and the anti-Trump alliance.
Private citizens have only limited means to combat the Soros-level or the CCP-level dementors and destroyers of worlds. But they can speak out, and they can vote… and they can arm themselves and train themselves to fight individually and in small units. They can learn to provide for themselves when the critical infrastructures begin to suffer from leftist terrorism, bad governance, and a breakdown in the rule of law.
Hope for the best. Prepare for the worst. It is never too late for a Dangerous Childhood © .
Millions of Russians fled the brutal Bolshevik Revolution and the long genocidal terror that followed. Bloody leftist revolutions in China and elsewhere followed, with brutal terror and death the inevitable consequences.
The horrors of twentieth-century socialism—of Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini, Mao, and Pol Pot—were the offspring of 1917. Seventy years earlier, Marx and Engels predicted the overthrow of bourgeois rule would require violence and “a dictatorship of the proletariat . . . to weed out remaining capitalist elements.” Lenin conducted this “weeding out” using indiscriminate terror, as Russian socialists before him had done and others would continue to do after his death.
The late Rudolph Rummel, the demographer of government mass murder, estimated the human toll of twentieth-century socialism to be about 61 million in the Soviet Union, 78 million in China, and roughly 200 million worldwide. These victims perished during state-organized famines, collectivization, cultural revolutions, purges, campaigns against “unearned” income, and other devilish experiments in social engineering.
In its monstrosity, this terror is unrivaled in the course of human history. __ A Staggering Toll
The instigators and backers of modern insurrectionist movements hope that they can do as well. It would be best if we did not choose this moment to go all wobbly.
More: Refuse the mob
Through the violent politicization of all aspects of American life, the mob aims to destroy the country as we know it and replace it with a new one—an anti-America that trades speech for violence, police for thought police, a free press for an indoctrination network, and the respect due the citizen for the obeisance owed the mob.
There is one way to stop the unraveling: Refuse the mob. We have seen again and again that the mob comes only for those who hope to please it. And when it does, no amount of apology will save you. We stand against the mob and all its aims. We stand against the chaos and violence, the silencing of debate, the purging of heretics, the rewriting of history, and the destruction of the greatest country in the world. We will defend the most majestic achievement of humankind, the United States of America, against the most ignoble impulse in human history, to tear down that which is good.
