rebuttals to "Gun Control"
My ancestry hails from the British Isles. I am one hundred percent Anglo Saxon on both sides of my family. Nearly every Brit I’ve met in my travels was polite (and often wonderfully witty). My father fought side by side with Brits in the Pacific Theater in WWII and his praise for their courage and honor was unbounded. I was raised an Anglophile, a person who truly appreciates the people and culture of Great Britain. However, I haven’t yet visited Great Britain.
And now, by choice, I never will.
Because Great Britain has become the one nation on the entire globe that I hold in irrevocable contempt. Yes, even more than the tyrannies of Iran or Red China or the African despots.
The Iranians, the Chinese, or the Somalis are transparent about what they are: impervious to "democracy" and disinterested in the concepts and responsibilities of personal freedom. They are socially addicted to fanatic religious, tribal, or age-old caste/cultural dictatorship and ruthless strong-arm rule.
In our lifetimes the Iranians, the Chinese, and the Somalis will likely NEVER know personal freedom. It is not in their mentalities, their culture, or within any context of any historical memory that any of them can relate to. Within their nations, they are "immune" to democracy and personal freedom. And so be it, that’s just the way it is.
But my fundamental grudge against England is that Great Britain has willfully chosen a degrading, cowardly, and amoral plummet into self induced slavery and cultural suicide. They have chosen to destroy one of the most productive freedom based cultures of the last five hundred years.
There are four steps that the Brits took toward cultural suicide, and America is not far behind.
THE FOUR STEPS:
#1. Socialism was America’s initial step towards the "English Ideal". Thank the cultural Marxists (it’s their blueprint), Franklin Delano Roosevelt (The New Deal), and Lyndon Baines Johnson (The Great Society).
(An intriguing aside: The "National Firearms Act of 1934 under FDR, and the "Gun Control Act of 1968" under LBJ. Coincidence?)
#2.Multiculturalism (which is far, far different from the Yankee "melting pot" assimilation ideal) is America’s second step towards English Pudding World. Recently, British Prime Minister Cameron declared that multiculturalism had failed. I’ll leave that there. Even that socialist twit can finally see the forest through the trees.
#3. Political correctness is the third step toward British moral and judicial perversity. In England you go to jail for saying critical things about certain races, religions, ethnic groups, or sexual orientations that here in America are still legal, if only barely so. When "hate language" is illegal in America this will no longer be America. Jailing for politically incorrect speech is right at our borders, friends.
#4. Gun control" is the fourth step towards the wondrous "British System". The dependency upon government that began with socialism is now complete: the government will protect you. You don’t need a gun. Surrender your firearms.
Multiculturalism exacerbates tensions among the races and cultures and these tensions breed a tendency toward violence. "You still don’t need a gun." Just let the cops wield even more power over all of us. Give the government even more power over the individual as an excuse to quell "racial tension". So, to instill multicultural peace? Surrender your firearms.
And political correctness shuts us all up. The emperor has no clothes, but we have been so brainwashed and manipulated that none of us dares speak out with the truth. Guns are now bad! Our children are sent to a shrink for drawing a picture of a gun in school. "Conflict resolution" has taken the place of simply beating the daylights out of the bully on the school yard. This nation’s liberals think self defense is barbaric, "macho", and "Neanderthal". Surrender your firearms.
Now, look closely at this photo: *
This is the end game of "gun control". An innocent man is attacked and has no means of self-protection. This pitiful photograph was taken during the recent London riots. It says it all. This is the final fetid result of the Nanny State that is now Great Britain.
Do you think this event could ever happen in a "Constitutional Carry" state like Alaska, Vermont, Wyoming, or Arizona? Would this be even remotely possible if the thief understood that a robbery using deadly force could be met by the chance that this smaller, weaker fellow, might be packing a Glock? Don’t give me any cultural relativity blather regarding "oppression" and "pent up rage" or any of the other politically correct regurgitation used by the talking heads to excuse the rioting in London.
Just answer the question: Could this happen in Arizona, Wyoming, Vermont, or Alaska?
Could this happen in a state known for a high density of licensed concealed carry? Don’t prevaricate with any "well … that depends" and other such bilge. Yes or no?
The British have been turned into insipid weaklings. From "the sun never sets on the British Empire" to pulling down one’s pants on demand. This is sickening and disgusting.
Additionally, we should feel a deep empathy for the millions of still proud Brits who must realize that their chance to turn any of this around is over. They have been effectively disarmed. There is now NOTHING dissenting Englishmen and women can do. They are helpless.
So every time you hear some American advocate for socialism, multiculturalism, political correctness, or "gun control" spouting off, bring the pathetic image of this photograph to mind.
This is where America is heading. Anyone who denies it is either a fool or a liar. Thank you, Great Britain, for providing a warning about what’s to come.
