Quote of the day—Larry Correia

To pull off confiscation now you’d have to be willing to kill millions of people. The congressman’s suggestion was incredibly stupid, but it was nice to see one of you guys being honest about it for once.  In order to maybe, hypothetically save thousands, you’d be willing to slaughter millions. Either you really suck at math, or the ugly truth is that you just hate the other side so much that you think killing millions of people is worth it to make them fall in line. And if that’s the case, you’re a sick bastard, and a great example of why the rest of us aren’t ever going to give up our guns.

The 2nd Amendment is Obsolete, Says Congressman Who Wants To Nuke Omaha
[The quote above is the conclusion to his post. The post is basically a confirmation of my Boots on the Ground analysis.

The political left doesn’t understand numbers and they don’t understand the psychology of gun owners. Correia gives them some insight:

A friend of mine who is a political activist said something interesting the other day, and that was for most people on the left political violence is a knob, and they can turn the heat up and down, with things like protests, and riots, all the way up to destruction of property, and sometimes murder… But for the vast majority of folks on the right, it’s an off and on switch. And the settings are Vote or Shoot Fucking Everybody.  And believe me, you really don’t want that switch to get flipped, because Civil War 2.0 would make Bosnia look like a trip to Disneyworld.

Don’t expect the political left to let facts get in the way of their beliefs.

We live in interesting times.—Joe]

  1. I read that piece from LC elsewhere and that particular segment got me thinking about history. It’s not been unusual for figures who are now known for extreme behavior to evolve rather quickly from everyday nondescript folks.

    I’d prefer not to witness it, but from an observational perspective it would be interesting to see if “the right” actually finds it in itself to resist the Progressive Left and then who the leaders of the various movements would be and what their backgrounds were.

    I believe that seeing something as an existential threat would have a significant impact on actions, boundaries of behavior and a departure from societal norms.

  2. “In order to maybe, hypothetically save thousands, you’d be willing to slaughter millions.”

    Sounds like what every socialist/NAZI regime has done in the last 100+ years. Yet we’re the threat to society.

  3. “Either you really suck at math, or the ugly truth is that you just hate the other side so much that you think killing millions of people is worth it to make them fall in line.”

    Remember; to the run-of-the-mill leftist, the thought of reducing the world population by millions would be seen as a good start, but hardly enough to get excited about. Don’t forget; they all truly believe that there are billions too many people already.

    Don’t try to dissuade the left using dire warnings of the numbers of deaths which might result from their policies and actions. Mass death is a feature to them, not a bug.

    They believe Mankind to be literally destroying the planet, a pont which they try to make daily, and so the thought of wiping out a few million Americans (racist sexist bigoted homophobe redneck Neanderthal colonialists who breed too much) would only encourage them. If a few million leftists have to out along with them, that’s OK too. The more the better.

    If there’s anything they hate more than a principled, law-abiding heterosexual American man with a gun and a Bible, working hard, being productive and asserting the perfect law of liberty for all, if there’s anything they hate more, even than a hundred million gun owners of all colors and stripes getting along with one another in America, it’s a few billion “Breeders and Eaters” (as they put it) worldwide.

    That general belief and attitude is now built-in, and dwells at some level inside every “liberal”, Progressive, leftist, Marxist, papist, et al.

    In most cases that concept of Mankind as Vermin is what defines them and drives them. Once you understand that, their behavior and seeming contradictions all make a kind of “sense”, and they become predictable. It is their secret, and often no-so-secret, desire to elevate themselves to the status of gods, in the traditions of the ancients, and to execute judgement on the rest of Humanity. It’s a desire to return to the system of the Dark Ages, this time with all the high technology that our system of liberty has built for them.

    • A few million Leftist rank-and-file. Your typical leftist thinks he will be part of the ruling class and won’t be blinking in disbelief in the Gulag as he composes a letter to Comrade Stalin or whoever, about how it’s all a big mistake and here are the important facts (where the facts and truth FINALLY matter to a Leftist).
      The totalitarian Leftists always had a concept of “Party Member”. It is a fraud on rank-and-file Leftists for them to believe that having registered Democrat means they are now considered “Party Members” and entitled to more than the most minor of consideration if times get hard. In the United States today, the equivalent of a Soviet or Nazi Party Member is someone who has been proven reliable enough to be ELECTED to public office by the Democrat party. The voters are merely “useful idiots”, dependably voting for the privileges for the party members

  4. The concept of violence as a knob or an on/off switch is remarkably similar to the positions of the two sides in the Vietnam war. How did that work out.

  5. He obviously doesn’t understand the mechanics of what he whats to do, which shows he has no experience in military or law enforcement.
    Nukes take out everything in a (relatively) concentrated area – they would be (relatively) ineffective at destroying a rural population but would be more effective at destroying an urban population. Their use anywhere in the US would destroy roads, power lines, pipelines, etc and cause HUGE ripple effects globally.
    As you mention, their use would kill millions – most of whom, even in the South, are Liberals… doing what he suggests would HELP conservatives and gun owners!
