A Comment Revisited

I would like to address a comment made on the policy updates on this site:

It’s Statist censorship.
ALL DISSENT IS QUASHED.

I know that we will never win this war against evil except by default. That means the other side becomes so drunk with power that they collapse. The consequences of that scenario will depend upon us. How we act and if we trust in the Lod and understand public virtue.

Can we win the war by fighting? The only course of action I see happening is infighting. Consider the fact that no one but me pays for this site. You probably do not even think about that there are no ads or popups. You probably do not think about me period and that is fine: the purpose of this site is to give people a venue to comment and discuss relevant issues pertaining to this country. In too many cases, you do not think before commenting. Rational thought and strategic planning are what is needed if we want to win. The above comment is what I receive.

Let’s break this down:

It’s Statist censorship.

Definition of statist:

an advocate of a political system in which the state has substantial centralized control over social and economic affairs.

Everyone knows that I know we cannot vote our way out of this. I do not vote and I am not registered to vote. I criticize political stances and statements but I do not and have not advocated for a political system on this site for 14 years. How then can I be a statist?

ALL DISSENT IS QUASHED.

No. Comments that violate the rules are deleted. No one but Wes knows the absolute trash we receive for comments. The rules are based on decorum and family oriented values. You do not see porn or soft porn on this site. You do not see vulgar language or physical threats on this site. I do let Wes moderate comments on his posts unless they violate those tenets.

What I also delete are comments which make the commenter look stupid. I have been leaving comments up that are based on “feelings” such as the unsubstantiated rumor that Griner is a male. Really? That is what people think will win this war? I guarantee the Biden traitors are having a huge laugh at that response.

Which leads me to the idea that people think they should be in control for no other reason than it is their “right”. If I did promote a single ideology and silence the rest, is that not my right? Do you think than walking into a store gives you the “right” to tell the CEO how to operate his business? No one forces anyone to come here and it is your right to leave. However, the only ideology that is promoted here is that we are at war with an evil government. If we lose this war, our children will be further enslaved and the light of Liberty will be extinguished from their lives. Why would I waste people’s time reading comments that are divisive, abusive or misleading?

If you disagree with that “ideology”:

Voting, playing keyboard warrior or attacking fellow patriots will not win this war. Maybe some of you are ashamed at your inaction and are taking it out on others. Maybe you are working for the government or social media. Maybe you get some perverse satisfaction at trying to incite others. Do you think Samuel Adams would have cared:

Your world is changing faster than you know. You have decisions to make but there are two that first must be answered:

  1. Do you believe in God?
  2. Will you act like a man?

I hope that people will come together and fight the real enemy. I hope for many things but I pray for guidance from the Lord. You can continue to think that you can control other people by commenting on a small patriot blog. You can continue to do nothing but whinge. I hope that you can look into your children’s eyes this Christmas and recognize what is truly important.

A statist? I have not heard such a BS statement since being on this website. Probable the person making this statement is the statist I am sure. Thank you and everybody at NCRenegade for all you do.

I do find it funny the people that preach about freedom, are the ones that want to force their you or something you own. David is right, he pays for the site and he has the right to say what is said. It is like going into a mans home and not respecting his rules while being there.

The evil men do will come here shortly, if we do not stick together we will hang together.

You pay the freight here. Your site your rules. I read some unbridled sites where topics go of on wild tangents because of no oversite.

I am first in line for the whoopin’ on this one, and I hate to say it, but its a thought that has been gestating for a little while for me. I believe that it is-please forgive me-comments sections like this on blogs and web pages that in some part tend to “keep us in our seats and out of the streets”. Any decent psychotherapist will tell you that “triangulation”-that is telling someone over here, what your problem is with someone over there-creates inertia and tends to not solve problems. These boards give us vent of frustrations and fears and anger, and instead of enjoining face to face with our peers and the problem solving, solutions oriented energy that that creates, we spill our guts and voice our opinions in the comments sections, feel a little better, eat dinner and go to bed. That’s part of why sometimes I stay off the comments for a few days here and there-I get more done that will help my family when things are finally all broken apart. I actually today intended to take such a break starting today, but for better or for worse, I could not help myself.
All that said, I know that the largest part of us really appreciate NCRenegade, the folks that administer it, and similar pages and their admins.
We always offer that we can’t get together because of “them”, and fear of being infiltrated, and then we spend hours putting our thoughts on the internet for posterity. Even when there’s an article posted here today that suggests that the FIB is busy corelating cell data to find persecutable scapegoats for the power outage/sabotage in NC. We know they are tracking our electronics and our internet footprints and keep doing it anyway. I believe the “intel” we gather on pages like NCRenegade is often very helpful. The sitting and prognosticating for hours, not so much. Maybe I’ll do the right thing and keep my keyboard silent for another good stretch. God bless you all and God help us as we move forward.

Put succinctly: If our founding fathers had had one line comments boards, would there have ever been a revolution?

The questions, yes, I believe in God almighty and the son who did his fathers will and by grace gave us a chance for everlasting life. I have tried to act like a man since the age of nine, when my dying father told me I am now the man of the house. Have I lived up to that declaration, not by any means, in this human condition I fall short of expectations. I have been on a spiritual journey for a long time, perfection is what I strive for, but I will probable still need some work up until I get that dirt shirt. That said I have been turning my physical self into to a weapon going on 40yrs, have I reached perfection, there is always room for improvement. I thank God every day for my God given ability’s, we all have them unique unto ourselves. Anxious about our country you bet, in my heart I know there is only one solution left for us, I am committed to it, alone or together, I am committed heart and soul.

No, some of us here have not only been preparing for ourselves but also for others that will join the fight. Talking to both the like minded and normies, I find anyone not completely asleep can feel the winding of the spring. When it lets go the fury of its’ action will be biblical in affect and evil will be swept away without mercy or quarter. Folks like “been here before” will be unprepared and not able to cope. The most hilarious thing is that the regime thinks it really has full control of the military.

What’s truly important to me is that my family is saved and we will be together for eternity with Christ Jesus our Lord! We are Not of This World! Sure we can be good stewards and do our best to point others to Jesus Christ, but ultimately it’s “Where are you spending eternity?”
Merry Christmas! John 18:37

I hope that people will come together and fight the real enemy.” Sir, that is my hope, too. And please, sir, never think for a moment that you are not thought about. I, and I’m sure that many, many others, appreciate your website and have the highest respect for your thoughts and views on a host of issues. I consider your website a light of hope in a field of darkness. God bless you, sir. Merry Christmas!

Do you think calling people cowards every day, every chance for not doing the ‘one’ thing is helpful?
Is all self esteem gone? Is all sense of personal responsibility gone? You have done nothing! Really that is your message of unity?
So we lash out and attack each other demean and destroy with baseless lies in the cause of “Unity?”
Do this ‘one thing’ now or else you are a pacifist a coward. Do not ask questions and expect and answer. Expect to be called a name get a down vote.
“Christians” who scream “Who are you to judge?” Yet they sit at their computer screen, the metaverse that we ourselves have created (the web of many lies, opinion and our continued destruction.) and do not speak up when they are being judged by many sites many articles on a daily basis?
We do well to get a glimpse of each other in these moments. Repeating lies do not make things true, no matter which side you think you are on.
Join the collective? Neither collective looks all that appealing at this time.
i do not believe the enemy of my enemy is necessarily my friend. Perhaps neither should you! My salvation is in the middle, He is set-apart and above all this muddy water.

You’re joking, right? Many articles on this blog reference how we are all cowards for letting the country get in this mess. “Look in the mirror at the coward looking back”. “Don’t make your family bury a coward.” Etc.

The site. Perhaps not you specifically yet i do think silence is a compliance of sorts.
i do not hate anyone here per say. But i think attacking the choir is not the way to go. i can look in the mirror, why can’t others? i am not hiding from anyone.
My way or the highway rubs me wrong. Telling me we have but one choice or two does not work for me either. i can not speak for others.

“I hope that you can look into your children’s eyes this Christmas and recognize what is truly important.”
i consider my King and Master each and every day, along with my children as i pray they are His also.
Look at this world and yourselves through the eyes of His Son.
