Skip to comments.The Critical Role of Gun Clubs in the Approaching Civil War
Posted on 01/26/2019 1:06:02 AM PST by vannrox
As all our regular-readers know, this site tracks the coming civil war in Europe because we know it is the only hope the European peoples and lands have at avoiding Muslim enslavement and death. The Muslim population of Europe is on a shockingly high growth curve, with those of Islamic background already representing a majority of the under-18 population in many areas. All sober observers recognize the dire future such demographic realities promise. For these reasons the study of how events are unfolding in Europe, and analysis of how 4GW/civil wars are fought, are of the utmost importance.
Therefore we watch with hope as talk of civil war spreads throughout Western Europe. This has increasingly been the case in France in particular. As the Gatestone Institute recently wrote:
We are on the verge of a civil war. That quote did not come from a fanatic or a lunatic. No, it came from head of Frances homeland security, the DGSI (Direction générale de la sécurité intérieure), Patrick Calvar. He has, in fact, spoken of the risk of a civil war many times. On July 12th, he warned a commission of members of parliament, in charge of a survey about the terrorist attacks of 2015, about it.
In May 2016, he delivered almost the same message to another commission of members of parliament, this time in charge of national defense. Europe, he said, is in danger. Extremism is on the rise everywhere, and we are now turning our attention to some far-right movements who are preparing a confrontation.
What kind of confrontation? Intercommunity confrontations, he said polite for a war against Muslims. One or two more terrorist attacks, he added, and we may well see a civil war.
Whether Calvars comments about far-right extremists are accurate or stem from the usual European-traitor/elite fear mongering, his statements on the imminence of civil war must be taken as accurate and significant.
If we analyze the actions of other traitorous European governments we can come to a similar conclusion. In Germany recently the police carried out massive raids arresting native citizens for extreme, far-right postings (see here). No doubt many of us would- if we lived in Germany- have to fear similar treatment. The German governments motivation must of course be ascribed in part to their radical religious ideology of national-suicide, but it must also be ascribed to increasing fear of vigilante justice and revolution, stemming from their increasingly enraged native citizenry (see more on that here).
In civil war or other times of societal destabilization, certain things take on outsized importance. To get an idea of this, we have a helpful article from Politico about Albania in the 1990s.
Guns were the first thing we went for, then flour for bread, said Aleksander Marleci, a local politician in the town of Shkodra, in northern Albania.
That was in 1997, the year Albania teetered on the brink of civil war. The pyramid scheme that suckered in most of the population had collapsed and half of Albanias GDP disappeared overnight. Protests gave way to street fighting and looting. At the top of looters shopping list were the countrys bountiful arms depots.
Guns, as anyone might expect, take on this outsized importance. So too do organizational apparatus. As a result, when the Yugoslav government fell and Albania (and the rest of the Balkans) fell into anarchy in the 1990s, Albanias reverted back to their old patterns of Kanun a clan-based societal model replete with ancient, violent customs in which familial loyalty and organization trumps all other, and families often war with each other in the absence of law-enforcement authority. Once the Albanian government had to reassert control- around the time the county was (of course) entering the EU, they had to mount full-scale military advances upon certain Albanian towns, some of which certain clans even tried to repel with mortar and rocket-propelled grenade fire! Such is the power of tribal loyalty.
Thus the cultural particulars of Kanun do not concern us as much as what their re-adoption tells us about anarchic, civil-war like conditions: organization is of the utmost importance.
One of our very wise readers, Nxx, has pointed this out as well. That in the American civil war, it was George Washington who became military leader not because he was the only one with the skills and training to do so, but because he was plugged into a well-oiled command and control structure- the Freemasons. Such C4ISR structures, which already possess ranks, hierarchies communication networks, and the logistics to move manpower and materials and rapidly react to changing conditions on the ground (remember the OODA Loop), are of the utmost importance in civil war conditions.
This confluence of guns and organization brings us back to modern Europe. From CNBC:
France, a nation long considered a beacon of liberty and stability, may be on the edge of something resembling a civil war.
I wish I could say this was just hysterical exaggeration. But the evidence does not support complacency. Just down the road from me on the outskirts of Montpellier on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, theres long been a gun club where enthusiastic game hunters can polish their skills during the off-season. Unlike in Britain, it is perfectly legal for members of such clubs to own pistols and semi-automatic rifles.
In the last few months, since the wave of terrorism has intensified, the membership of the gun club has quadrupled, from 200 to 800 members. The new members are not all motivated by the love of shooting sports. Benoit, a local olive farmer who owns more than a dozen rifles, pistols and shotguns, as well as an AK-47 assault rifle, admitted to me this weekend something much darker.
Theyre getting ready for a war, he said.
This hopeful (to us) article echoes something I discussed on the Red Ice Radio podcast last month (before I had seen the above article), which is that gun clubs are- in my opinion- the organizations in contemporary Western Europe most suited to serving such a C4ISR role in the coming civil war.
We as modern Westerners are in a much different situation compared with the late 18th century Americans or with 1990s-era Albanians. This is because we typically have very small families and very weak social networks. We do not have clans, and modernity has left us with much less tangible and robust bonds than those in George Washingtons time period. As a result, it is that much more important for us to deliberately seek out any organizations or groups that serve these purposes. With this being the case, I believe gun clubs are almost ideally situated for the task.
This is because, as formal organizations, and indeed ones with ties to other gun clubs all around the continent, they possess a command and control structure. Sure, right now this structure might serve no greater purpose than organizing fox hunts or shooting competitions, but it is there nonetheless. Such clubs are vehicles for human organization they are the logistical apparatus needed to effect action, whatever that action might be.
Another key utility they possess is the ability to distribute weapons. As Europeans stock up on guns in preparation for their governments falling and ethnic violence escalating, the importance of this cannot be overstated. Similarly, gun clubs train their members on how to use weapons, which is a skill very few Europeans already possess.
All of these things make gun clubs- in my opinion- the most logical choice if one is to predict which organizations will serve key roles in Europes coming civil wars.
As a result, it is quite likely that the genocidal/suicidal governments of countries like France and Germany and Sweden will eventually ban them. Quite frankly I find it somewhat shocking they are even allowed today. Yet were those governments to forcibly shut down gun clubs, it would still be a victory from a 4GW perspective, as it would further separate remaining normies from their governments.
In the meantime however, I would humbly encourage any Europeans reading this to research their local gun clubs and join them. Become like Benoit in the CNBC article and begin preparing for what is to come. While I myself am not yet able to go to Europe to aid in the burgeoning civil war (which is of course my goal), I am still going to be joining a gun club and beginning firearms training.
As more Muslims rampage through cities like Nice wreaking horror and destruction, as millions more Muslims arrive in Europe every year, and as more and more White women and children are raped in broad daylight, the citizens of nations like France will naturally lose faith in their governments. Simultaneously those governments will also be under rapidly increasing pressure as a result of the overwhelming logistical and financial costs of mass immigration. This is a recipe for collapse and civil war. As it approaches, let us do our best to ensure that the ranks of gun clubs soar.
Editors Note: If you are in Europe (or anywhere for that matter), please tell us if you know anyone in a gun club. Does your local town have one? What other organizations do you think might play similar roles as events escalate in Europe?
Oops, wrong war.
What can you tell us about the source of this article? Are you familiar with it? Is it a source to be trusted for its knowledge of the subject discussed in this article?
We do not predict or hope for civil war in Europe in the literal sense, but rather understand that Western Europe is entering a period of profound destabilization and violence. This will escalate soon for a variety of reasons, until ethnic violence and anarchy are common in countries such as France, Sweden, and Germany.
As horrible as this is, we recognize that- tragically- this scenario is preferred compared to the alternative, which is submission and complete Islamization. This is not hyperbole but is borne out by demographics. Already in some Western European countries the male 18-29 year old demographic is near 50% Muslim. As the native European Baby-Boom generation passes on, and as mass-immigration continues, the overall demographic picture will look just as alarming.
As Europeans living on the continent and in the worldwide European diaspora, we would be remiss individually and collectively to not do everything humanly possible to prevent Western Europes destruction, as engineered through its suicidal, Cultural-Marxist elites; and as effected through mass-Muslim immigration.
This site is an attempt at 1) documenting the situation, 2) analyzing it, and 3) fighting back.
Maybe it was the wrong guy.
I do think in the modern era command and control is somewhat over emphasized in asymmetrical warfare. Certainly C&C is a requirement in the superior side of the asymmetry but what the inferior lacks in Command and control and other elements of logistics the inferior side makes up for by spontaneity and numbers. All the elements required by the well resourced side are actually liabilities for the inferior. Planning enables spying. Spontaneous attacks that arise from all quarters ultimately win by sheer numbers and will. We all realize this which is why we have such faith in our ultimate victory over libtardism. They have neither the numbers OR the will to win even when they own the gummint.
I want to be a warrant officer this time.
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government. - Thomas Jefferson
Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. - Thomas Jefferson quoting someone else during a speech.
The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it. - Thomas Jefferson
When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty. - Thomas Jefferson
If we desire to avoid insult, we must be able to repel it; if we desire to secure peace, one of the most powerful instruments of our rising prosperity, it must be known, that we are at all times ready for War. - George Washington
The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that's good. - George Washington
Arms in the hands of the citizens may be used at individual discretion for the defense of the country, the overthrow of tyranny or private self-defense - John Adams
I ask sir, what is the militia? It is the whole body of the people except for a few public officials. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them... - James Madison
That the people have a Right to mass and to bear arms; that a well regulated militia composed of the Body of the people, trained to arms, is the proper natural and safe defense of a free State... - James Madison
Let us recollect that peace or war will not always be left to our option; that however moderate or unambitious we may be, we cannot count upon the moderation, or hope to extinguish the ambition of others. ...The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed. - Alexander Hamilton
"The Constitution of most of our states (and of the United States) assert that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed." -Thomas Jefferson
"Americans have the right and advantage of being armed, unlike the people of other countries, whose leaders are afraid to trust them with arms." - James Madison
When firearms go, all goes - we need them every hour.George Washington.
Oppressors can tyrannize only when they achieve a standing army, an enslaved press, and a disarmed populace. James Madison
The supposed quietude of a good man allures the ruffian; while on the other hand arms, like laws, discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world, as well as property. The same balance would be preserved were all the world destitute of arms for all would be alike; but since some will not, others dare not lay them aside. Horrid mischief would ensue were one half the world deprived of the use of them. - Thomas Paine
A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government. George Washington
"No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms." - Thomas Jefferson, Virginia Constitution, Draft 1, 1776
"I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery." - Thomas Jefferson, letter to James Madison, January 30, 1787
"What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms." - Thomas Jefferson, letter to James Madison, December 20, 1787
"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined.... The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun." - Patrick Henry, Speech to the Virginia Ratifying Convention, June 5, 1778
"The Constitution shall never be construed to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms." - Samuel Adams, Massachusetts Ratifying Convention, 1788
great collection of quotes
very nice post
Extremism is on the rise everywhere,
a phrase for those against the destruction by the globalist politicians put in place who are allowing the invaders to rape and murder their populace and take over their country
Time for me to join a gun club.
sadly there doesn’t seem to be anything on the site newer than 3 years old.
Nice set of TRUTH!
And get your name and address put on a list?
I’ll just freelance; but thanks anyway.
Great collection of quotes, but it includes a number of totally bogus ones.
