Posted on 01/28/2013 9:55:57 AM PST by JoanVarga
What was the legend that the hapless political wonk invoked a year or so ago? The Romans would roll into town and crucify the first five people they laid hands on and then theyd have little trouble from the rest of the proles? Something like that.
Over at Pat Dollards place there is a fine sentiment showing manly, warrior support for Ted Nugents Concord Bridge comment. I love it. But much of the bravura and dispute in the comments is about firepower and armed conflict. Were nowhere near that point yet. I think the Dumbed-down Party will allow us to keep our guns for another year or two. They still have much work to do, and many examples to set up to bring about the desired fear. And if not outright fear, then the desired sobriety of a man considering the ends of ones actions.
However, ALL OF US are already being made examples. Daily we comply with all sorts of indignities and insults to our sovereign sense of human rights. We answer intrusive questions, we suffer molestation in public by the TSA, we sigh at bureaucratic sand in our economic gears.
But heres the thing: Obama wont send an army, hell send your neighbor, the one with the IRS job. Or youll try to travel and a local NHS satrap will show up to investigate you, express serious doubts about your online comments, and ask you to get in his car, quietly please, as your wife and kids look on and your neighbors whisper, I always thought something was strange about him. Some municipal quisling will bring four or five officers and arrest you for making a video, or for refusing a smart-meter on your home. You will be shamed in the local paper, not the New York Times.
Death-or-glory charges are for the fresh young recruits. Cannon fodder, sadly. But their story comes long after the thousand paper-cuts of the Diktat. The apparatchiks are your neighbors. And you wont raise a gun to the man with whom youve shared a meal.
If Solzhenitzyns how we burned in the camps later essay doesnt WAKEN us to the fact that its not them but its folks right here, next door in our communities, then we are doomed to lose this country. You have friends with public sector jobs who cant afford to lose them. Hell, the garbage collector doesnt want to lose his job. Hell report you for not recycling if its required of him. Nice people will unwind the strands of liberty one concern at a time.
Brave talk, this idea of forming a militia to counter such tactics. But theyll never use the tactics youre imagining. It wont be a bang, itll be a whimper. Freedom is fragile, and its lost one city block at a time. One tax return at a time. One example at a time.
Addendum: I say all this to illustrate the immediate need to communicate, in real space, with your neighbors and family. To speak up, loudly if necessary, at community events and city hall meetings. Win hearts and minds NOW. Speak up NOW. Count the cost, NOW.
We are doing some good “groundwork” in our county and state.
Works for me.
Now I do love that plan. I do believe I have a whole house full of stuff that needs registering. Hope I can find the place to register them.
“You infer that a lot of us are soft targets for the government, but that cuts both ways.”
A forgotten fact about WWII is that numbers of Nazi occupiers were murdered in their beds by partizan resistance. The `Liberator’ pistol was designed to kill Nazi soldiers & seize their weapons. Reynard Heydrich died horribly from a flung grenade.
“That cuts both ways.” Ja wohl, es schneit bestimmt.
