We Shall Overcome?

sitin

In yesterday’s all-too-rare celebration of happy events, I forgot to mention some other awesome things that happened recently: the total failures of the Democratic filibuster, the “Civil Rights” themed sit-in, and the four hastily drafted gun control bills that were rammed (unsuccessfully) through the Senate.  For those keeping score at home, that’s three colossal, embarrassing failures.

The failure that makes me happiest though is that stupid sit-in.  What I find particularly offensive/hilarious is that a doddering, semi-literate old veteran of the Civil Rights Movement appointed himself the leader of this misguided act.  Let’s stop for a moment and ask “What exactly was being protested?” and “Whose civil rights are we talking about here anyway?”

ARs

What these clueless Social Justice Warriors were protesting is the American people’s unwillingness to slap new bans on “assault rifles”.  Here’s where reality and facts jump in and reduce John Lewis’s sit-in to a temper tantrum thrown by a bunch of overgrown mental toddlers.

True assault weapons were banned in 1934.  What is being protested is more accurately called the “Modern Sporting Rifle” or “MSR”.  I’ve got one, you’ve got one (or want one), we’ve all got them.  AR-15s are a fun and relatively inexpensive platform with which a law-abiding citizen can do a number of totally legal activities such as range shooting, casual plinking, varmint control, or hunting small-to-medium game for the dinner table.

The “problem” that SJW-Progressivists have with the MSR is that it’s a ridiculously popular item among the peasantry.  More AR-15s are sold in this country than any other kind of gun.  That means there are a lot of them out there “in circulation”.  Nearly 10 million by some estimates.

So if there are so many of these scary black rifles out there, why aren’t we all dead?  You’d expect mass shootings constantly, especially when you consider how crazy the average person in this country seems to be.

The truth is this: proportionally very few murders are committed with MSRs.  Exceedingly few.  As in, almost none.  Murderers vastly prefer handguns (pistols).  In fact, knives are used in more murders than rifles of all types!

But wait, here’s more truth for you!  A ban was already tried on MSRs and various other scary looking rifles back in the mid-90s and it failed to accomplish anything.

So since Bill Clinton’s “Assault Weapons Ban” didn’t work 20 years ago, and since true assault weapons were already banned in 1934, then we should keep trying to ban scary black rifles, right?  That right there folks is the definition of insanity.

What Rep. John Lewis doesn’t realize is that he is not fighting for any kind of “civil rights” this time.  In fact, he is doing precisely the opposite.  The NRA fights for my civil right to self-defense – and they do a pretty stellar job at it, thank you very much.

That’s right, my human right to defend myself with the weapon of my choice is a civil right no different than sitting in the front row of the bus or at the “wrong” lunch counter.

Pay attention to who wants your guns.  They are the same tyrants that want everything else you possess: your income, your property, your freedoms of speech, association, and assembly.  They are Statists and Collectivists and their ways always end in death.

But since they’ve failed so spectacularly – this time – let’s raise a glass and toast our own continued liberty.  Cheers!

Score Three For The Good Guys

Brexit This

What a difference a week makes!

Last week we all felt under siege from the forces of darkness arrayed against us.

But just a few days ago, the clouds parted and wonderful things began happening.  What?  You didn’t notice?  You couldn’t feel that gust of fresh air?  Well, let’s run down the list of recent events that we, the People, should feel overjoyed about.

  1.  A Baltimore police officer was acquitted in the death of Freddie Gray.
  2.  The Supreme Court blocked Dear Leader’s Executive Order on Immigration.
  3.  The people of the United Kingdom voted to leave the EU.

Why is #1 big?  It is a kick in the nuts to Black Lives Matter, The Revolutionary Communist Party, Social Justice Warriors everywhere, and all of the other anti-police activists who prefer anarchy and chaos to law and order in our inner cities.  Because anarchy and chaos is what you get when police are too afraid of lawyers and judges and prosecutors to do their jobs.

If you didn’t celebrate #2, you are reading the wrong blog.  SCOTUS got it right by taking power from the Executive Branch that it had un-Constitutionally appropriated.  At the same time, SCOTUS highlighted its own relevance in the run-up to the election this fall.   Bottom line: one candidate will unbalance this court and decisions like this will become a thing of the past as Progressivism takes total control of the levers of power and drives this country into the dirt.  The other candidate won’t.

#3 was the kicker and possibly the best news of the entire year.  People win, elites lose.  The “experts” all got it wrong.  Individualism, sovereignty, and self-determination whooped up on collectivism, globalism, and central planning.  The “Stay” side played the fear card…and lost.  The biggest reason Brexit won?  The massive groundswell of popular opposition to invasion by non-assimilating immigrants, refugees, and third-world migrants.  It’s happening in this country too (finally) and should play a big role in November.

So there are your Three Things To Cheer About for this past week.  More please!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Here We Are

The flag you see here is important.  Remember it.

Welcome back to “Rhyming With History”!  Did you miss me?

I last posted here over six months ago.  In that final post of a turbulent 2015, I described the “invasion” that is underway in the West.  Not necessarily an invasion of immigrants.  Nor of peoples of “diverse faith”.  And not particularly brown-skinned escapees from Third World shit holes.

ISILmigrant

The invaders are the armies of alien cultures.  They represent cultures that are totally incompatible with ours and desire nothing less than to destroy (“fundamentally transform”) the Northern-European, Christian culture we have enjoyed for centuries on this continent.  And the politically progressive defenders of the status quo are flinging the gates wide with so much vigor and enthusiasm that the hinges have literally melted off.

We’re doomed.

Over the past four years on this blog, I’ve offered you a peek inside my own personal philosophy of forward-looking, situationally aware, pragmatic, self-dependent survivalism.  I’ve suggested things that in no way can be considered “racist” or “privileged” such as starting a home garden, beefing up your ability to defend your family, and even relocating to a more secure location.  That was phase one.

Beginning today, I will no longer dispense prepper advice.  Let’s just assume we are all in this mess together and that we can all take care of ourselves.  The amount of food you can grow or the size of your ammo supply simply has no bearing on where we are headed as a nation and as a culture.  The invaders are here.  The war has begun.  And there is no voting our way out of it.

Comacho 2016 indeed!

Still don’t believe we’re being invaded and our own government is in on it?  Read this.  Pay particular attention to the company mentioned on the third paragraph.  You can research them on your own time but for now, let’s just connect the dots.  The Orlando shooter was an employee of that company.

Let’s get back to flags.  Do you recognize this one?

mexflag

Now how about this one?

BLM

If you saw this one being carried down the street by an angry mob, how would you react?

It is important that you correctly identify these flags because they are the battle flags of the enemy.  The first is the flag of the Islamist “Jihad” movement that seeks to establish a global Islamic caliphate under Sharia Law.  They are an enemy of not just our nation and our culture but of the entirety of Western Civilization.  The second is the Mexican flag and is typically carried by illegal border-jumpers and Aztlanistas who are fighting for the Reconquista.  They are another enemy of our nation and our culture.  The bottom flag is the “Pan-African” flag typically carried by Black Power forces, The Black Panther Party, Black Lives Matter agitators, and all of their various race-hustling adherents.  If you are white, they are your enemy too.  Think flags don’t matter?  I’m guessing that flags matter a lot to this guy:

power

While we are identifying our cultural foes, let’s line up the rest of them: the facilitators, the sympathizers, the Social Justice Warriors, the Cultural Marxists, and those who – either out of fear or laziness – refuse to stand against our enemies.

power2

And these enemies are everywhere.

What to do?  Well, the best advice anyone ever gave me was “Avoid crowds”.  Second best was “Read a book.”  Reading this blog is also good.  For as long as this lasts (and until I completely unplug and bug out to my cabin in the mountains…the clock is ticking), I will continue to point out your options.  Yes, you have lots of options.  In the meantime, stop worrying about being called names!
