Let’s take a quick look at the Bill of Rights.
Here’s a few things that stand out: the most important ones mention the rights of “the people.”
4th Amendment: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated”
2nd Amendment: “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
And you see, the same liberal big government worshipers who feel like they are justified in infringing on a right that shall not be infringed will ultimately feel every scintilla as justified in violating rights that shall not be violated.
Maybe a liberal wouldn’t mind explaining to me why “the right to vote” means not having to show ID when the right to keep and bear arms without being infringed upon somehow necessitates not only an ID but background checks up the whazoo. Their argument might amount to “the right to vote never killed anybody.” And I’m saying, SERIOUSLY?!?!? Dude, the Nazi Party in Germany was ELECTED. We watched several years back as the Palestinian Liberation Organization – a murderous terrorist organization – was ELECTED. We just watched as the Muslim Brotherhood – a murderous terrorist organization – was ELECTED in Egypt. And that organization just imposed fascist sharia law over the nation’s constitution by fiat almost immediately afterward.
The right to vote is FAR more dangerous than the right for law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms. And you are a moral idiot to the extreme not to understand that.
Moral idiots are far worse and far more dangerous than intellectual idiots. Because moral idiots are people with dishonest minds and dishonest minds prefer lies to the truth. Moral idiots such as those who run our culture today devote their intelligence to advancing lies. And they are the first to justify extreme policies with the notion that the ends justify the means.
Let me point out that the very biggest moral idiots of all are the so-called “intellectuals” who dominate our universities and our political think tanks. Thomas Sowell interacted with George Orwell to produce this gem:
“George Orwell said that some ideas are so foolish that only an intellectual could believe them, for no ordinary man could be such a fool. The record of twentieth century intellectuals was especially appalling in this regard. Scarcely a mass-murdering dictator of the twentieth century was without his intellectual supporters, not simply in his own country, but also in foreign democracies, where people were free to say whatever they wished. Lenin, Stalin, Mao and Hitler all had their admirers, defenders, and apologists among the intelligentsia in Western democratic nations, despite the fact that these dictators ended up killing people of their own country on a scale unprecedented even by despotic regimes that preceded them” – Thomas Sowell, Intellectuals and Society, p. 2.
And a lot of the people who are such beyond-belief fools are the very same people who continue to be for banning guns “despite the fact that these dictators ended up killing people of their own country on a scale unprecedented even by despotic regimes that preceded them.” They are consistent only in that they are so consistently morally stupid.
The nature of the big government socialist left was, is and will always be fascism. And the nature of fascism has always been to deprive human dignity and freedom – starting with the right to self-defense.
Because herd animals shouldn’t have a right to defend themselves. We don’t want our hamburgers getting guns any more than fascists want their people to resist their policies (such as Hitler’s Final Solution, such as Stalin’s Collectivization, such as Mao’s Great Leap Forward).
Which is why they’re going after our guns first just like Hitler and Stalin and Mao and Castro and Pol Pot and Kim Il-sung did before they brought the Horror against unarmed and defenseless people. Considerably more than 100 million people were brutally murdered by leftist big government dictatorships during peacetime alone. And the one thing all these governmental philosophies had in common besides big government totalitarian control was the initial disarming of the people they were about to impose horror against. This is a fact of history.
What has the left done with the 2nd Amendment? First of all, they have defined the right as belonging only to a militia. Okay. Then the 4th Amendment (and other important amendments such as the First Amendment) needs to be only for militias, because the same amendment which says the right of the people to bear arms says the right of the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures. And if “the people” in the 2nd Amendment refers only to “militia,” then ALL of the rights accorded to the people only pertain for those belonging to a militia. Because a right recognized for “the people” either applies to “the people” or it doesn’t. And which is it? Which do you want? “The people” either refers to a militia or to the actual “people.” Just because the right to arms are also granted to well-organized militias does not in any way, shape or form abrogate the right of “the people” to keep and bear arms any more than the mention of the right of the press somehow abrogates the right of the people to freedom of speech and to peaceable assembly as guaranteed in the First Amendment.
They also try to limit the 2nd Amendment by asserting that it somehow only allows for hunting. Why shouldn’t we have a right to the frankly dishonestly named “assault weapons”? Because you don’t need thirty bullets, or even ten, to shoot a deer, we’re told. That is absolutely absurd. The founding father’s writings are jam-packed LOADED with their clearly expressed view that the ultimate purpose of an armed citizenry was to serve as a safeguard against a tyrant government along with serving as a means for a free people to defend their homes, their property and their persons. Lastly, they have infringed ALL OVER the 2nd Amendment guarantee while dishonestly saying they’re not infringing on anybody’s rights.
Fascism and government tyranny has started with the confiscation of guns from the people, to disarm them in order to control them. Big government is ALWAYS about controlling people.
If you value ANY of the other rights of the Bill of Rights, then you’d damned well better protect the 2nd Amendment.
I keep telling anyone who will read me, over and over again: the beast is coming. And he most certainly is. And soon.
The thing you need to realize is that by the time he gets here, the Democrat Party will have given the once-great and mighty United States of America into his hands by disarming the people. And it will be Democrats who worship this ultimate big government leader and take his mark on their foreheads or their right hands as a sign of that worship.
We just went through a disgusting act of propaganda via incredibly deceitful editing of video by the leftwing MSNBC. Neil Heslin – the father of a slain Sandy Hook shooting victim – said, “I ask if there’s anybody in this room that can give me one reason or challenge this question … why anybody in this room needs to have one of these assault-style weapons or military weapons or high-capacity clips.” And then he categorically stated, “Not one person can answer that question.”
Yeah, Neil. We CAN answer that question. We have a right to be able to protect ourselves with the same sorts of weapons that either predatory criminals or an even more predatory criminal thug government possess. Our founding fathers gave us that right, and our ancestors died to preserve that right for us. Here’s a question for YOU, though: can you answer to the hundreds of millions of families who saw their governments brutally murder their parents, their children, their brothers and sisters, their grandparents, their cousins, etc. etc., just why it was that they didn’t deserve the right to be able to defend themselves??? Can you explain why you believe government ought to have the right to slaughter us like farm animals by the hundreds of millions???
That’s my question.
Consider smoking. First the left forced restaurants to divide their buildings, airplanes, etc. into smoking and non-smoking sections. But the nature of the left is to keep taking, keep building more regulations with more penalites. Now you can’t smoke at all in any government place – whether the owner of that place likes it or not – and many people are not lawbreakers even for smoking in their own homes. If that isn’t bad enough, you’ve got liberals saying that now that the left has taken over and socialized health care, it is too expensive to give the smokers the Medicare and health services they paid into. And so they should die. And I mean literally be killed by denial of medical treatment.
You’re only one government regulation away from being treated like Hitler treated the Jews or Stalin treated the Ukrainians or Mao treated, well, pretty much all of his people.
