I had originally titled this post, “Well, That Didn’t Take Long”, but out of respect for the dead and their families, I repent of my urge to be snarky and hard-hearted. May God have mercy on us all in these dark times.
As I just stated a few hours ago, they are pushing for the disintegration of civil society in America. And, at least one someone gave in to that pressure last night, and opened fire on a concert from the balcony of a high-rise hotel room. There are now
20+ 50+ 58 dead and over two hundred 400+ 515+injured in Las Vegas, per the latest reports on this mass murder, this blatant act of war against our society.
We just got our next ‘Sandy Hook moment’, folks. Every news outlet is already wielding the words “the deadliest mass shooting in US history”. The news reports are also plainly peppered with the left’s preferred language for attacking gun rights. Numerous outlets are
already calling the weapon a “semi automatic assault weapon“ declaring that he had “an arsenal of assault rifles”, and all the usual suspects are already screaming for new Gun Control measures – http://dailycaller.com/2017/10/02/democrats-immediately-call-for-gun-control-after-las-vegas-shooting/
After all, “never let a good crisis go to waste” as Democrat top operative Rahm Emmanuel said.
As I wrote many years ago;
“Collectivism does not admit any; rather, it demands that all be enrolled regardless of their will, and has as a core value that there should be no free choice anywhere – even outside the collective; no man, once enrolled by the collective, may recant his entry thereto, for the collective releases those who dissent only by death. Even death is denied it’s dignity by the collective…”
What we are witnessing is the big push, the last hundred yards to the finish line of imposing their tyranny across the West. Events like this are how they destroy our choices – who we associate with (or choose not to associate with), places and events where we choose to visit or not, what choices we have to defend ourselves and our families, etc., etc.
WE HAVE BEEN WARNED
The Left is causing as much danger and disruption in society as possible because eventually frightened people ask for SOMEBODY to take charge and DO SOMETHING. Many people will GIVE UP their rights for the illusion of Safety, which doesn’t exist anyhow. That’s how we get totalitarian states. That is what they are after. Safety is an illusion. It has never existed. But having your own gun and training makes you and your family SAFER than you are disarmed and with Leftists in charge.
Lawlessness, last days
There is a clear course of action we should follow -- it would clean up our Country and restore our Constitutional Republic. Control the borders, deport the undesirables already here, downsize the federal government to its constitutional powers, and understand that the welfare state is immoral because it is based on coercion, envy, and theft, and is a violation of God’s Laws protecting private property and condemning envy and theft.
But the American People are too ignorant, stupid, and lazy to bring this about. I attended recently an event where candidates for office spoke. Most of the candidates were completely clueless as to our problems. One candidate for a County office complained that his County wasn’t getting any federal grants -- and that if he was elected, he’d get those federal grants. Candidates who preen themselves for being a “conservative”, mouth meaningless platitudes, and how we must have the federal “safety net”. And Americans who are “conservative” applaud them and love them.
Precisely correct. And well said.
we are at war accept it or be slaughtered like the poor folks out there
