Outing the Gun Owners and the Left's New Savagery
American Thinker ^ | January 4, 2013 | Robert Spencer

Posted on 01/05/2013 8:14:36 AM PST by neverdem

As Michael Walsh noted last week at PJ Media, the Westchester Journal News has published the name and addresses of legal gun owners in Westchester County, New York...

--snip--

A Leftist journalist named Nathan Lean, the editor-in-chief of Aslan Media, who has been published in the Los Angeles Times, Washington Post and New York Daily News, has sent me several tweets and emails containing personal information about myself: where he thinks I live, who he thinks my wife is, and more.

The purpose of these messages was unmistakable: Lean was signaling to me that he thought he knew my whereabouts (and that of my family), despite my attempts to conceal them because of the many death threats I receive. And why would he want me to think that he knew where I was? So that I would be frightened into silence, afraid that one of his many violence-inclined allies might do me in if I continued to speak out for freedom and human rights. Yet despite his appetite for menace, Lean had no trouble getting published in flagship mainstream media outlets -- which tells you a great deal about them.

In the 1930s, when the National Socialist German Worker's Party, aka the Nazi Party, was consolidating its power in Germany, its storm troopers regularly terrorized its opponents: showing up when they spoke to shout them down and intimidate them, vandalizing their messages, and sometimes attacking them outright. We are rapidly approaching the same situation in America today, as the Left's demonization of its opponents descends to this menacing new level.

The Westchester Journal News does not have the moral high ground, and never did. Any doubt about that was removed when it published the addresses of the gun owners. But soon thuggish demonstrators outside the homes of those gun owners...

I don’t know anybody in my community that doesn’t have a bunch of guns in their home and we don’t have CCWs or any gun permits in Alaska. I must be living where I belong.

In an information society, information is a serious weapon.

The Left believes that it’s at war... with capitalism, with history, with reality, and with G-d. In their war, they see themselves as the underdog, fighting for a golden future against the forces of darkness.

Therefore, the Left thinks it’s justified in taking any tactic against its enemies, including tactics such as these.

We are less than half a step away from a latter day NAZI USA. Don’t kid yourselves. Obama is no dummy. He knows where he wants to take us and he is executing his game plan flawlessly.With Jarrett and Axelrod calling the shots the Reichstag fire cannot be far off.

You have to have a handgun permit here in Michigan but we have both open and concealed carry. Anybody can have a shotgun or rifle and there are a lot of them here.

Insane people can injure & kill with weapons of any kind. Even shooting off information into the public arena that can endanger not just the folks the info is about, but everyone in the society, including the info-shooter themselves who were apparently not thinking sanely at the time they shot off the info into the public arena.

Side question... Is it bad to keep my .223 rounds loose in the ammo can as opposed to boxed in the original packaging? I don’t want to spend a lot of time unboxing them later.

It’s interesting to me in that I was just reading a novel that had a character saying something that really resonates with me about what I am seeing in the news/blogs and commentaries today about gun-control.

It is: “Why is it that people like you always think you’re more ruthless than people like me?”

The people that want to control every aspect of our lives think that they have either cowed everyone of their opponents or that we will meekly walk into the concentration/extermination camps because fighting back is so un-civilized. It isn’t so, but their life experiences lead then to believe that. What they should be deathly afraid of is when the “Civilized” population sets aside that facade and unleashes the wolverine that has been leashed.

But then, it will be too late.... for them that is. Once that genie is out of the bottle it will be nigh impossible to cram it back inside. But as usual they will push and grasp for their goal of total control because their hearts’ desire is just in reach.

The cost will be horrendous I fear, and all because of that greedy desire.

For the Left in general, their opponents are evil, and so can and should even be put in physical danger if that is what is needed in order to bring about its silence and submission.

**********

Make no mistake about it, the Left harbors deep seated contempt for conservatives whom they view as greedy and uncaring neanderthals. Liberals view themselves as moral and intellectual superiors and therefore entitled to dictate to and control the "feral savages".

These are self-righteous people who believe that the ends justifies the means, hence their viscious tactics against all things conservative are justifiable in their own distored minds.

Once upon a time, political opponents could agree to disagree, then go out for a beer together after the vote. They all had the same goal, just different ways to approach it.

Those days are decidedly gone.

We are at war. The two sides are so far apart, and so committed to their way of thinking, that this cannot possibly end well.

Of course, once upon a time we all accepted the Constitution as the baseline for all political discussions in America. Those days are gone, too.

Where does Nathan Lean live? We should know that. A good place to start is property records which are public and free in most counties.

When confronted with a similar comment from a scum bag I was investigating one time my comment to him was: bring six people with you because you will go out of here feet first. Please don’t back down or show weakness to any vermin.

Therein lies the issue ... 'civilized' (i.e. conservatives) turn the other cheek, then turn it the other way, then turn it back again. Boehner "negotiating" with Obama is a great example. Wimpy legislators letting Leftists have an inch on gun control and then watching them take the proverbial mile is another. This cr@p with the newspaper publishing info on legal gunowners, even if public info, should be slapped down and hard. Protests in front of gunowner homes? Hell no ... it should be the other way around. Two quotes ... and yes, it's time for some ball ripping and if that doesn't work, the Leftists will continue to push until bullets will likely be next:

"Son, you don't poke a wolverine with a sharp stick unless you want your balls ripped off." -- Grandpa Vanderboegh.

That is a TERRIFIC graphic! Not sure if you found it somewhere or if you photoshopped it yourself.

If the latter, respectfully request you perhaps consider adding two Muslim organizations at the bottom, down there with NAACP: CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) and ISNA ( Islamic Society of North America), as they are very much part of the “network.”

Again, thank you (either way).

>>>I don’t know how “most do cuss words here.” I thought most people write them as *%$^# or some such.<<<

You’re right. One of the reasons Free Republic remains a place I like to go to is the relative absence of commonly written vulgarisms. Not that I’m a prude; I have tossed a few F bombs around with the best of them. However, it’s nice to have intelligent discussion in which people actually use adjectives and adverbs that have nothing to do with excretory or sexual function or questionable parentage. Or all three.

I can also respect you typing “G-d” as you do. I’m Jewish, and those of us I know about who are faithful are asked not to mention the name of the creator - and your wording is quite like their own.

I sometime act in the role of grammar police - I’m a high school English teacher in my real life - but how you worship and express it is your business alone.

If someone wants vulgarisms and swear words, pop into any liberal website like the Daily Kos or the Democrat Underground. It’s excruciatingly dull with the constant repetition of swear words, as well as demonstrating a lack of intelligence. IMHO

Where do you think the criminals acquire their guns.... from the local Wally-world or pawn shop?

So.... unless you tote them around with you or stay at home 24/7, you are now a mark.

How’s that for a downside?

It is a mark of respect many American Christians have picked up from the Orthodox Jewry's tradition of not writing out the Name of God.

It a practice that seems to be particularly prevalent among Evangelicals with a great love for Jews and Israel. Perhaps so as not to give offense to the "Older Brethren."

That is because there is room for compromise.
For instance, giving up “some guns” or allowing “some gun control” means that gun controllers win, and can come back for more later.
So draw the line, make sure you’re locked and loaded, and dare ‘em to cross it.
