Gun-grabbers are using Rule 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.
Alinsky's Rules for Radicals ^

Posted on 01/08/2013 6:18:01 PM PST by E. Pluribus Unum

ALINSKY'S RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.

How can we fight fire with fire?

The efficiency of the truly national leader consists primarily in preventing the division of the attention of a people, and always in concentrating it on a single enemy.

-Adolph Hitler

Seems similar doesn't it?

Dang right they are, and we’d all best get ready to fight it. It’s pretty easy to see Obama’s people have put the word down to their media, because guns run the front of ever single news segment.. Within weeks, gun violence will be woven into every network TV show.

I pray every day it will not come down to fire. I would rather know I struggled for a cause rather than pass in a home pissing and crapping on myself.

"How can we fight fire with fire?"

We can start by letting everyone we know understand that a federal law against our 2nd amendment rights is unconstitutional. Listen to Oath Keeper, Sheriff Richard Mack spell it out, plain and simple. Then find out where your sheriff stands with respect to keeping his oath of office and defending your liberty.

“Go after people, not institutions”.. Does that apply to Sandy Hook too, or just afterwards..

Here’s one. I googled for the photo of the *assault rifle* Janet Reno’s people had pointed at Elian Gonzalez with him crying & terrified. Does anyone doubt that they’d do it again? Or that Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dorn or Barack 0bama would hesitate to blow up the children of the “capitalists” they hate?
If someone more competent than me would post a big old version of that photo, I would be eternally grateful. I know that the dummies watch us as closely as I watch them.

Yes. They are liars, exploiters, manipulators, & hypocrites. They are using these children as pawns & do not give a damn about their safety otherwise. In fact, the angst their male bashing, White bashing, & the gender confusion they’re pushing on kids is turning them into basket cases. I blame them.

(sorry for the rant. I’m just so done.)

Funny how the media didn’t seem upset about ‘assault weapons’ when the 0bama administration was busy flooding Mexico with them.

Hit the Hollywood celebrities and the Congress critters who have concealed carry permits. Expose them, get a camera on them on their way to the store or their kids' school. Shout at them, "Are you armed, NOW? Do you have your registered weapon on you, NOW? What are your bodyguards armed with? Semi-automatics or fully automatics?" Expose them for being hypocrites. Get member lists of all of these gun-control organizations. I bet you find quite a few are bogus. Expose Soros. How come no one has cameras on this guy? Expose the Leftist academics pushing for repeal of the US Constitution. Shut down their 1st Amendment rights.

I demand that the unConstitional Gun Control Acts of 1934, 1968 and 1986 be fully repealed. “Shall not be infringed” is a Constitutional mandate. Does this nation have a rule of law or not?

How can we fight fire with fire?

In professional firefighting terms it is called : “BackDraft”

You use the same combustables , you light a fire with the intent of depriving the main blaze of its fuel source.
So we apply it where it counts , contain the source of the fuel .

That means that we all become “community organizers” in our own communities , and we use Alinski’s rules .
That is how we got “the IMPOSTER “ in the first place ...

Clock King, I only have one minor suggestion to make on your above excellent statement. In the last sentence, I would personally make that, “Shut down their ABUSES of their 1st Amendment rights.”

I didn’t even read it. (Stuck on what McChrystal said). That’s not too far off, figuratively speaking. Stuff like this always makes me wonder if the person was dirty all along. Ugh. Hate it when that happens.

Elian Gonzales. Waco. Ruby Ridge. Coddling Bin Laden and the Taliban. Its a long list of stupid moves.

I do not doubt for one second that the communists will exterminate a plethora of innocents if they think it will make them the sole possessors of firearms, ruling over a disarmed fearful cowed citizenry. These are the same people who gave AK47s to the Sinaloa cartel to enhance their control over the drug trade in the US, and place firearm sales in the US in doubt.

History is replete with such examples of tyranny. Americans will not fall for it. In the beltway and the progressive communist scheming halls, the nationalist socialists and communists are way out of touch with the heartbeat of America. Matt Bracken had a great article about that yesterday.

I have a hard time deciding whether the left is delusional (actually believes what they say) or if it’s a whole puffed up Wizard of Oz kinda thing. Doesn’t matter, I guess. It is what it is. I, too, put nothing past them. Some of their doofy, idealistic (more harmless) followers are in for a big shock.

I don’t think I’ve been to Western Shooters since before the holidays. It’s wild around here, though. If I have, it was for a specific link. I’ll go see. Thanks

Wait. I just read that again. lol I’m goin’. Right now.

Its worthwhile, Trav outdid himself again over at Western Shooters. It was posted here too last night.

I still believe there is more to the scheming, watch their hands is what my instructor advises, don’t listen to what they say. The whole antigun thing is more likely tied as a sideshow to the fiscal implosion to be visited upon us shortly, and the unleashing of illegals, ramping of debt again, and increasing of taxes again, coupled with the deployment of the govt armed civilian force promised long ago.

How I Pray you are right.

After last November, I worry as to how many Americans would really understand the significance of destroying the second ammendment.

wow. Chilling stuff. You know that I’m a woman, right? Waaay above my pay grade. But still. I’m sorry to say none of it surprised me...what you think, but don’t say/ write out loud because that makes it *too* real. Sink in too much.

I spend a lot of time reading between the lines, but on the internet, most of the people talking are just dupes. I pay more attention to whose comments are hidden/ deleted. You can figure out who are the herders & who are the sheep.
What are the herders *doing*? (they aren’t using words or at least discernible words)

A sideshow could well be true (& wonder, every time there’s an Aurora or Sandy Hook, what they did this time. They did *plenty* last year if that’s an accurate indication. Media hype is a dead giveaway, pardon the sad pun).
Knowing the resumes of some of the not obvious people who are not only connected to this admin, but *have been there all along* since the 60s/ 70s makes me very uncomfortable.
I don’t put anything past them. We haven’t even started the 4 year sentence yet. :-(
How long has it all been a lie?
