|The reason for the gun grab? The impending George Zimmerman Acquittal?|
Law abiding citizens the nation over watch as an incredibly feckless GOP capitulates to virtually every Obama decree, knowing no politician or political opposition would ever dare confront a black man (but promoting Dread Tim Scott as the savoir of the GOP... another priceless move by Conservatism Inc.).
Now, he comes for guns.
Liberal icon Michael Moore, in an inspired Yule-message, notified white people it's time to put away the guns [Michael Moore: ‘Calm Down, White People, and Put Away Your Guns’, CNSnews.com, 12-26-12]:
Three things, according to Moore, make America unique in its violence: poverty, “fear/racism,” and the “me society.”
“We're an awfully fearful country considering that, unlike most nations, we've never been invaded,” he said. “Why on earth would we need 300 million guns in our homes?”
“I get why the Russians might be a little spooked (over 20 million of them died in World War II). But what's our excuse?” Moore said. “Worried that the Indians from the casino may go on the warpath? Concerned that the Canadians seem to be amassing too many Tim Horton's donut shops on both sides of the border?”
“No. It's because too many white people are afraid of black people,” he said. “Period.”
Moore continued: “The vast majority of the guns in the U.S. are sold to white people who live in the suburbs or the country. When we fantasize about being mugged or home invaded, what's the image of the perpetrator in our heads? Is it the freckled-face kid from down the street – or is it someone who is, if not black, at least poor?”
“I think it would be worth it to a) do our best to eradicate poverty and re-create the middle class we used to have, and b) stop promoting the image of the black man as the boogeyman out to hurt you,” he said.
“Calm down, white people, and put away your guns,” said Moore.Actually, two thing makes America unique in violence: black people creating conditions in a community where economic activity is a 'life-or-death' situation for business owners; and an inability by the state to have put down black riots in the 1960s and in 1990 with lethal force, thereby directly ceding power to the lawless.
With major cities like Detroit, Chicago, Memphis, Newark, Rochester, and Camden turned over to lawless black people, white people fled to the suburbs; and yes, they purchased guns to protect their families and property where the state had failed.
It could have been different. Reading "A Nation on Fire: America in the Wake of the King Assassination" by Clay Risen, one name stands out as having the audacity of courage to have potentially changed the direction of not just his city, but the entire nation as well: Mayor Richard Daley:
Saturday evening Richard Daley and his fire chief, Robert Quinn, had climbed into a helicopter for a 45-minute tour of the riot damage in Chicago. They flew up and down the West Side, maneuvering around billowing smoke from still-burning fires and lingering over the occasional looters. As they went, Quinn pointed his finger at the looters, then at the firemen. They couldn't work under this kind of threat, Quinn said. He told Daley to get tough. Looters, he said, should be shot.Well... we know what happened next in the United States, with the ideology of Black-Run America (BRA) seeping into every institution in the nation.
They he landed at Meigs Field, on Lake Michigan, and a scrum of reporters me them as they returned to City Hall. " I never believed it cold happen here, " Daley said. "I hope it will not happen again." Then he called his police superintendent, Richard Conlisk, and dressed him down for not issuing shoot-to-kill orders.
A week later, on April 15, after the riots in Chicago had died down and the looters gone home, Daley would hold a press conference... he explained that the riots were the result of a breakdown in order among the city's black population, particularly in the schools.
"I have conferred with the superintendent of police this morning and I gave him the following instructions... I said to him very emphatically and very definitely that an order be issued by him immediately and under his signature to shoot to kill any arsonist or anyone with a Molotov cocktail in his hand because they're potential murderers, and to issue a police order to shoot to maim or cripple anyone looting any stores in our city... In my opinion, policemen should have had instructions to shoot arsonists and looters - arsonists to kill and looters to main and detain. I assumed the instructions were given, but the instructions to the police were to use their own judgement.
The next day, April 16, with the riots still fresh in the national consciousness, the press conference was on the front page of almost every major paper in the country. The Chicago Tribune ran a page-one banner headline reading "Shoot Arsonists: Daley."
But even as he was taking the defensive, Daley had an aide tabulate the letters and telegrams coming in on his comments. A week later, he proudly reported that he had received ten thousand letters and a thousand telegrams, and they were running 15-to-1 in his favor. Daley, it turns out, was giving voice to what many already felt.
As one letter writer told the Chicago Tribune well before his speech, the anger of Chicago's urban whites went deeper than the April riots, even as those events brought it to a rolling boil. "Guilty men, even murderers, are free if not 'advised of their rights," wrote Daniel Sobeiski. "Rioters and lawbreakers are not punished, but psychoanalyzed and given government grants. We forget about brutality to police and society. You may not yell fire in a crowded theater but you can freely advocate burning a city down. Is it no wonder that sick minds, seeing this, feel free to act?"
Another reported that "the white community waits apprehensively, fearfully anticipating violence led by black militants." Yet another asked, "What are people to do? Put up with this sort of thing or run from the neighborhood we worked hard to maintain?"
Chicago alderman Thomas Keane gave voice to many when he said, "I don't know why were are disturbed about the mayor's statements. .. Instead of criticizing actions of the police, I feel it's time to use brass knuckles and get down to telling those committing to stop." (p.178 - 181)
Today, the Obama Administration and his lapdog press would simply issue one directive, reported this way: Shoot those who don't disarm and give up their guns.
Today, Chicago stands on the edge of death, courtesy of black criminality driving away investments, and potential law-abiding citizens (and the precious tax-revenue they produce to subsidize the black population).
It's another story, this one from the late-Charlton Heston. In his book, "The Courage to Be Free," he wrote:
The message from the cultural warlords is everywhere, delivered with the arrogant swagger of absolute confidence. Summarized, it is this: Heaven help the God-fearing, law-abiding, Caucasian, middle class, Protestant (or even worse evangelical) Christian, the midwestern or southern (or even worse rural) hunter, apparently straight or admitted heterosexual gun-owning average working stiff, or even worse still male working stiff, because not only do you not count, you're a downright obstacle to social progress. Your tax dollars may be just as welcome and green as you hand them over, but your voice deserves no hearing, your opinion is not enlightened, your media access is virtually nil, and frankly mister, you need to wake up, wise up, and learn a little something about your new America.This book came out in 2000... since then, the silence from the group of people Heston defended has been... deafening (though had the GOP tried to rally them in 2012, Romney would have won). Instead, the GOP has decided to promote individuals like Dread Tim Scott as the new face of conservatism, believing that black people in South Carolina - who voted overwhelmingly for the cretin Alvin Greene for senate in 2010 - will come sprinting to the GOP side.
And until you do, why don't you just sit down and shut up! (p.5-6)
Meanwhile, no champion can rise to defend the untenable: the white population of America.
But it is one more story from Mr. Heston's book that needs repeating, with Mr. Obama and his lapdog press doing a full-court press for guns:
Police couldn't stop the riots in the wake of the Rodney King trial verdict in Los Angeles. I know. I was there. I was at home in the Los Angeles area when those riots broke out just a few miles away. And I was armed. Like everyone within a radius of fifty miles of those riots, I was concerned when I realized that the Los Angeles police Department could not , or would not, control the carnage and vandalism.Perhaps Mr. Obama, Eric Holder, and the media are well-aware that George Zimmerman will soon be acquitted of all charges in the Travyon Martin incident, knowing the track record of self-control that black people possess and their historical record of engaging in Spontaneous Blackness at a moments whim...
The fear ran so quickly and so deeply throughout the Los Angeles basin that even my liberal friends were frightened. My phone rang day and night. As TV news choppers hacked through smoke-darkened skies over L.A., I got a phone calls from firmly anti-gun friend in clear conflict.
"Umm Chuck, you have quite a few... ah guns, don't you?"
"Yes, I do."
"Shotguns and... like that?"
"Could you lend me one for a day or so? I tried to buy one but they have this 15 waiting day period..." (p.73)
Is this the reason to go for guns?
White people are right to be fearful of black criminality -- look no further then 2013 Detroit, a 92 percent black city, for a powerful reminder of the type of community black people are capable of creating.
Never forget this one sentence: White America owes Black America nothing.
Not even our guns.
