White, “Christian” and Treasonous: Who Will They Kill? (Guess who he's talking about?)
Patheos ^ | January 23, 2013 | Frank Schaeffer

Posted on 01/23/2013 5:03:41 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

The battle over gun control has exposed a truth the mainstream media is apparently too shy to mention: A bunch of far right white mostly southern paranoid extremists are preparing for armed revolution and apocalypse. They speak treason: literally.

They are preparing to “defend” America from America with arsenals of weapons and stockpiles of ammunition. Their “enemy” is everyone in America not like them.

They think the world is ending and/or that the government is out to get them. That doesn’t mean it will happen. But expect violence and assassinations. Their ideology is made up of equal parts racism, evangelical Christian fascination with the “end times,” hatred of president Obama, resentment of the “Old South” variety and a Fox News/Glenn Beck/Rush Limbaugh version of world “history.” As the New Yorker noted:

“Every demographic and political trend that helped to reëlect Barack Obama runs counter to the [South’s] self-definition:…The Solid South speaks less and less for America and more and more for itself alone… Solidity has always been the South’s strength, and its weakness. The same Southern lock that once held the Democratic Party now divides the Republican Party from the socially liberal, fiscally moderate tendencies of the rest of America… The South’s vices—‘violence, intolerance, aversion and suspicion toward new ideas’—grow particularly acute during periods when it is marginalized and left behind. An estrangement between the South and the rest of the country would bring out the worst in both—dangerous insularity in the first, smug self-deception in the second.”

The Republican/white/southern extremists make reasonable gun control impossible. Their cataclysmic irrationality risks taking the debate into the twilight zone, and that “zone” is a zone of violence: call it the civil war continued by other means...

We aren't mostly southern either. There's scary rednecks outside the city limits nationwide.

Identify the target.

Freeze the target.

Demonize the target.

When do they start handing out all of the ammunition they’ve purchased?

It was Obummber who told a collective of faggots in San Fransicko that he would have to shuck and jive in some political speeches in 2008 to win over some voters in flyover country who "cling to religion and guns".

We knew he was lying then about "not gonna take your guns" and "I'm a lifelong Christian" and "I oppose same sex marriage".

I have no gun in this battle. I don't own a gun.

But the president is a lying bastard and both of those words are true and will be his ultimate legacy.

You forget that to a progressive all "ethnic minorities" look alike.
And, to the left they all look precisely as they should.

My take away from all of the “Southern” talk is that they intent to divide their opposition geographically first. The raids and trumped up charges should begin soon. People with “arsenals”, “voiced threats”, “planning attacks, maybe against schools”.

The Northern folk are about to get some head pats about what good Elmer Fudds they are, while those southern folks (otherwise just like them) are a bunch of racially crazed hillbillies.

“cataclysmic”

I imagine the fruit who wrote this would find the South to be cataclysmically awash in testerone, in comparison. He strikes me as someone who would pick up a gun by accident, then squeal and drop it.

Communists acknowledge that there will always be a sizable bloc of the population who will not succumb to political re-education and must be imprisoned in gulags or killed.

Bill Ayers’ Weather Underground figured it would be tens of millions of “hold outs” who would refuse CHANGE.

Those who seek to toss the Constitution on the scrap pile are SEDITIOUS. The POS-POTUS just swore to uphold the Constitution “so help me God”.

What does that mean when he’s repeatedly on record trying to find ways around the language in the Constitution and the separation of powers?

Sounds like projection to me. I think you’ll find old school types in more of a defensive posture.

As far as “who will they kill?”
Must be talking about democrats ...

The five worst mass killings have a common thread.
Hint #1: they don’t belong to the NRA.

Ft Hood~~~ Registered Democrat ~ Muslim

Columbine ~~~ Too young to vote; both families were registered Democrats and progressive liberals

Virginia Tech ~~~ Wrote hate mail to President Bush and to his staff ~ Registered Democrat

Colorado Theater ~~~ Registered Democrat; staff worker on the Obama campaign; Occupy Wall Street participant; progressive liberal

Connecticut School Shooter- ~~~ Registered Democrat; hated Christians.

Common thread is that all of these shooters were progressive liberal Democrats.

Also, of the worst killings in the last several decades, only one was a female, all the rest were boys, barely men, and none of them had a strong male father or role model in the household. Their role models were rappers, action movies, comics and violent video games.
Our problem isn’t weapons, it’s boys without boundaries who live in ‘progressive’ households.

Republican/white/southern extremists

All right people. Did a little research on the "author's" background.

Here is an excerpt from his father's bio-Francis August Schaeffer.

A number of Christian leaders, authors, and evangelists credit Schaeffer's ideas with helping spark the rise of the Christian Right in the United States and were strongly influenced by him. Among them are Operation Rescue founder Randall Terry, Focus on the Family's James Dobson, the 700 Club's Pat Robertson, Prison Fellowship's Charles Colson, columnist Cal Thomas, preacher and author Tim LaHaye, former Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris, and Liberty University and Moral Majority founder Jerry Falwell.[2]

Franky Schaeffer is a shame to his late father. This is the same formerly young evangelical who wrote "A Time for Anger," not that long ago, advocating a militant Christianity that was all but in its racist connotations, precisely the kind of violence he imagines brewing in basements in the Old South.

Somewhere along the line, after his father passed away (1983?), "Franky" lost his faith, or the faith of his father anyway, but obviously none of his venom.

That's not to say all he imagines isn't actually the case. I'm certain that it is, certainly at least a part of the kind of stew one should expect when the Rule of Law regresses again to the Rule of men, or of a man.

If those who derive whatever authority they might presume to have from the Constitution decide that document no longer means what it plainly says, all kinds of subjective reasoning is likely to come to the surface.

What does Franky hope to accomplish with this latest diatribe? Does he advocate stirring up a million Wacos? Is his the cry of liberal despair?

It's not enough that those whom conscience dictates they accede to liberal ascendancy, they should also desire to leave a tip for the executioner and stick their heads laughingly into the noose.

(I still say it's spinach, and I still say to hell with it.)

I think the ferocious defense of guns is because gun right defenders refused to be forced into total dependency on and submission to - government. There is a principle in there somewhere.

Duuuhhh!

The last I read indicated that the ammo, reloading and firearms sell out was a “nation wide” thing. The Citizens are afraid of a Federal Government running totally out of control. The approval rating of Congress is the lowest ever charted.

This is not about racism, although some in DC who are Black and Racist seem to be at the epicenter of the chaos.

It is about freedom being threatened.

The left would love to find an excuse to use martial law on those who disagree with them. The press would clearly help them work this up.

Now witnessing stores bare of ammo and guns should sober them, but it only angers them. They should be afraid, but not of White Southerners, but Angry Americans.

DC, shut up and fix this mess. Or we will replace you.
