Quote of the day—Wil Radford

The left is agitating for a fight. They don’t care how bad it gets. Keep poking the bear long enough and you will get a fight. They want the fight to serve as the catalyst for the destruction of all civil rights expressed in the Constitution, and granted by God under Natural Law. Sickening how ignorant they are, mere “useful idiots”. They will be the ones screaming the loudest about their “rights”when they are being walked out to the execution wall.

Comment to NJ Dems Have 20 Gun Control Bills Lined Up If Murphy Becomes Governor
[The USSR, Italy, Germany, China, and Cambodia all come to mind. When the “intellectuals” who pushed for the political change realized things weren’t turning out as they planned and started complaining the tyrants in power sent them to the gulags, firing squads, camps, and killing fields. This was because these people had some level of influence and hence were a threat to the tyrant’s power.

Those that advocate for the elimination of individual rights believe the conditions they bring about will only be hostile to their political foes and are often surprised when those very conditions they imagined are imposed upon them.

The proper role of government is to protect human rights. The further it strays from that domain the higher the risk of enabling extreme evil.

Be careful what you wish for. You may get it.—Joe]

  1. “Those that advocate for the elimination of individual rights believe the conditions they bring about will only be hostile to their political foes and are often surprised when those very conditions they imagined are imposed upon them..”

    Let me write a letter to Comrade Stalin, If I can explain to him what has happened, he will understand that it is a mistake that I am in this Gulag.

    • The other thing the Leftists remind me of is the conversation between Roper and Sir Thomas More in “A Man for All Seasons”.

      William Roper: “So, now you give the Devil the benefit of law!”
      Sir Thomas More: “Yes! What would you do? Cut a great road through the law to get after the Devil?”
      William Roper: “Yes, I’d cut down every law in England to do that!”
      Sir Thomas More: “Oh? And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned ’round on you, where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat? This country is planted thick with laws, from coast to coast, Man’s laws, not God’s! And if you cut them down, and you’re just the man to do it, do you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then? Yes, I’d give the Devil benefit of law, for my own safety’s sake!”

      I’m going to have to buy that movie. I can’t trust to the media to rebroadcast such a subversive film any time soon.

  2. I suspect, but do not know, that those agitating for “direct action” (the “bear pokers”) are of the mind that it will be at least minimally organized and therefore subject to some sort of control, and that once control is gained, however that may occur, and to what degree, the direct action can be managed (see: “armistice, negotiated.”).

    I seriously doubt that will be the case; there may be a certain degree of apparent unity, but it will be manifested as uniformly consistent individual activity, aka application of “the 400 meter rule” which will persist until participants have exhausted supplies of either ammunition or targets.

    Given the purchasing behavior of the past several years, it will be the latter rather than the former; it should also be noted that as the inevitable supply of high value targets declines, targets of lower, even of zero value, will be substituted. No part of this process bodes well for either the agitators or the Republic.

    • The question always arises as to how, and when, the participants of the 400 meter group decide to cease action. It would start cleanly, but eventually turn into a free-for-all, I suspect. Lots of ages old resentment that would be revisited on bureaucrats and their lackeys. Unfortunately, no long term lessons would be learned by those attracted to .gov service, judging by human history. More and more, I can see the wisdom of Jefferson’s “feeding the tree of liberty” every 20 years or so. Object lessons only stay learned for a single generation.
