A slight departure from my usual daily post today, in that I switch gears to illustrate the kind of responses I occasionally get in the back room of my visual office. Having heard from scores of you on a similar topic, it occurs to me that the Antifa+ rearguard of the DemoMarxist smear and veer machine is no doubt out and about on their ‘pull out all the stops campaign’ to besmirch and disengage we fearless supporters of our duly-elected president.
After all, when similarly duly-elected Democrap Party operatives like Joaquin Castro step over the line of demarcation daily on revealing 44 San Antonio President Trump supporters and their financial contributions, shouldn’t there be consequences – or am I mistakenly assuming that oops! it was all just a muddled-up mistake (wink, wink)?
Having been in and out of Facebook Jail five times during the past six months for episodes of (quote) ‘not complying with the Community Standards of FB’, my wonder is whether these anti-Trump denizens receive the same treatment?
But, not to digress, let us go straight to the event I opened up with this morning. My inbox had…
“The problem is not guns, it’s hearts without God”. You keep believing that, lol.
The problem is that superstitious people who believe in patriarchal gods tend to hoard guns and are known to say things like, “Kill ’em all and let god sort ’em out,” which is actually a bastardized version of “Kill them all. God will recognize his own,” originally spoken by Arnaud Amalric, an official representative of Pope Innocent III, way back in 1209 when ordering Crusaders to attack the people of Beziers, France, for not handing over the allegedly heretic Cathars.
The problem is not “hearts without [g]od,” it is brains without knowledge. I always find it amusing when gun apologists try to defend their killing machines by saying that other things can be used to kill, too. That may be true, but how many ordinary objects can be used to kill nine people and injure 20+ in less than 30 seconds? It’s possible a car or truck could do that kind of damage, but vehicles require registration and insurance, unlike guns. Oh, and you mentioned that rocks kill people, too. I looked up the stats for that – only 18 people were killed by rocks being thrown, used as a weapon, or falling on them in 2011. You’ll have to do better than that to catch up to the 30K+ deaths by firearms annually.
You do realize you sound like a totalitarian when you say “control the hearts, souls, and minds of the people and you control gun deaths completely.” That could have come straight from the mouth of Chairman Mao!
“There is a bloodlust quality to the modern progressive movement which needs to be defeated. Obliterated even.” Obliterated? Come on, Dennis. Sounds like *you* are the one with the bloodlust.
[the actual full line he/she refers to went: “The unapologetic white man in me cries out ‘figuratively obliterated’, of course”. – conveniently ignored to suit the narrative]
Like most Trump supporters, you rely heavily on conspiracy theories, worn-out tropes, conjecture, and outright lies to support your claims. Too bad.[end]
To which my response is:
And with all due respect, ‘******* *********’, spare me your daily self-righteous stab at indignation. Just keep yourself bound in the arms of whatever jibberish devil it is you worship …
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience”. ~ C. S. Lewis, God in the Dock, p. 292.
I certainly don’t need your approbation in deciding what I do or do not believe. So keep your own self-confessed conscience to yourself. Since its inception, civilization has always been about control, in that busy-body people love to control the actions of other people.
If a government knows the best way to keep us safe, then who knows what’s the best way to keep the government safe from corruption? It’s easy to declare yourself to be the ultimate source of whatever, because doing so absolves you from any challenge of authority while simultaneously making you the master of others. I’ve always found it disheartening that in school, kids are always taught daily to think critically and read between the lines yet when they grow up to participate in society all that ‘thinking’ goes out the window.
Personally, I’ve always been one to probe the deeper question by questioning the question itself.
Stalin; Hitler; Mussolini; Mao Tse-tung; Idi Amin; Pol Pot; Castro; Ho Chi Min; Juan Peron; Khomeini, and countless other murderous malcontents, were all what you refer to in your own words as: “superstitious people who believe in patriarchal gods tend to hoard guns and are known to say things like, “Kill ’em all and let god sort ’em out,” which is actually a bastardized version of “Kill them all. God will recognize his own…”, which resulted in literally hundreds of millions of gunless innocents slaughtered in the first 70-80 years of the last century by their own governments because of the inconvenience of their existence.
Nice try ‘******* *********’, but it hardly passes daily muster with yours truly.
Alexandr Solzhenitsyn described you lot well, ‘******* *********’ with: “Ideology – that is what gives evildoing its long-sought justification and gives the evildoer the necessary steadfastness and determination. That is the social theory which helps to make his acts seem good instead of bad in his own and other’s eyes, so that he won’t hear reproaches and curses but will receive praise and honors … Thanks to ideology, the twentieth century was fated to experience evildoing on a scale calculated in the millions. This cannot be denied, nor passed over, nor suppressed. How, then, do we dare insist that evildoers do not exist? And who was it that destroyed these millions? Without evildoers there would have been no Archipelago.”[end]
And as C.S.Lewis closed out his quote from above: “They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. Their very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be ‘cured’ against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.”[end]
On a final note and especially towards the end of my daily devotions, I unabashedly proclaim God Bless the Constitutional Republic of the United States, now and forever. In Jesus’ name. Amen. To which I add on your behalf – Yours in Freedom, Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness – and Oh, yes, the ability to arm myself freely to dispatch the evil architects of Satanic mischief wherever they are found.
May you have a wonderful rest of the day. [end]
And on that note, time for today’s MAGA Pill – President Donald J. Trump – KAG!
