Quote of the day—Sarah A. Hoyt

Here’s something for the leftists who really want to do what they can to prevent the next one of these events from happening. How about you all stop with your self-righteous crap about how the NRA has blood on its hands when your side will all but literally stand on the bodies of dead children to politicize any tragedy just because they know it’s the only damn way they’ll ever get any movement on guns.

Accept it. It’s a lost cause for you. If you couldn’t get a change in gun laws like you wanted after Newtown, you’re not going to get it. It’s just not going to happen.

  1. I honestly believe SOME of those Anti-Freedom Lefties do NOT want the Mass Murders to stop, no matter who dies, so long as it’s not THEM. How can they advance their Agenda if there were no Atrocities committed?

    • I’ve seen internal memos that appear to support this hypothesis. I can’t seem to find them right now though.

      • I suspect it falls under ‘never let a crisis go to waste’. Invariably, these shootings occur in ‘gun free zones’ where the magical power of the red circle-and-bar ward has strangely failed to work.

        It’s akin to ‘attractive nuisance’; they set out sheep, then act shocked, shocked when the wolf comes calling.

    • Hey, but you guys love it because, after every shooting, you can be like Joe the Plumber and say “I’m sorry your kids died but I’m THE REAL VICTIM HERE!”

      • Well yeah. How many lives would armed muggers and home invaders take if their victims weren’t armed?

      • Tough talk from someone whose beliefs boil down to ‘a woman raped and murdered is morally superior to one who shoots her attacker stone dead’.

      • Funny, I’ve never heard anyone claim that.

        But, hey, beating strawmen you erect yourself is a heck of a lot easier than logic.

  2. It’s a simple formula. Enact licensing and restrictions, gun free zones, etc. Violence continues, enact more restrictions all of which “fail” and eventually claim that all the “halfway measures” “aren’t working” and that there’s nothing left to do but total disarmament. It’s always worked, but pulling it off in America is proving to be far more difficult. That’s a big problem for the forces of evil, because America is the primary target and She’s not playing along as hoped. So far.

    Two steps forward, one step back. Push too far, then back off for a while, then push again. That’s the only strategy that can work here– Long, slow demoralization. It is impossible to overthrow a confident, noble people. America isn’t demoralized quite enough yet, and so we need more demoralization. They’re working on it.

    I wouldn’t call it a lost cause yet. Consider the fact that no one alive today remembers a capitalist America, or a fully functioning second amendment, or a time when government didn’t own education, agriculture, energy, and transportation. New proudly stand in line for our licenses, pay our fees, and rebuke one another for not knowing and complying with all the restrictions, while we look over our shoulders dreading the next IRS audit, or the neighbor who might get pissed and “inform” on us out of spite, resulting in a SWAT raid.

    No, Grasshopper; it’s far from being a lost cause. You’re looking at one, currently stale-mated front in a global, multi-faceted, all out war for keeps, and the enemy never gives up to go off and mind it’s own business for a while. You ARE its business.

    • It’s kind of funny that you say this: “Consider the fact that no one alive today remembers a capitalist America, or a fully functioning second amendment, or a time when government didn’t own education, agriculture, energy, and transportation.”

      My father’s family is kind of different since they live a long time and have children late in life. My grandmother (dead now) was born in 1870. My father is almost 100. He remembers “a fully functioning second amendment” and a time when there was no department of transportation or energy (or roads or electric lights or a whole lot of other things).

      • So in an attempt to try and rebut him all you can think of is a family member who is alive and that somehow can help you sink his argument?

      • Huh. Interesting. Three of my four grandparents were born in the 1890s, and my parents were both born in the 1920s. But it’s funny – their memories of how things were in “the big picture” is really skewed by their political leanings, and often don’t seem to make any connection between what they experience on a daily basis vs polities and actions of the time. It’s sort on an odd disconnect that I don’t understand.
        The family never discussed politics when I was a kid. They tried to raise us to think independently. They were shocked that all three of us boys became conservative/libertarian as adults, even though we all went totally our own path to get there.
