An Armed Citizenry vs. A Tyrannical Government

By Kirby Ferris
Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership

“What if the American government ever “goes bad” and becomes a police state? That tyrannical government, IF it could enlist the willing support of every American soldier and every American cop (which is thankfully doubtful), could field perhaps a total of 1.5 million armed personnel. These duped soldiers and cops would have to go to their jobs each day facing a bare minimum of 10 MILLION very, very motivated and angry armed American citizens. The other 55 million would sit on the fence waiting, with their guns, to see which way the tide was flowing.

Additionally, you must logically ask WHY the present government is so obsessively committed to “gun control”. If our government has become so overpowering, so omnipotent, and it’s a waste of our time to even imagine resisting tyranny, then why do “They” even worry about the citizens being armed?

And why did the political regimes that committed genocide though the history of the 20th Century, first REGISTER and then CONFISCATE firearms before marching unarmed masses off to killing fields?

If an armed government is so omnipotent, why have so many armed governments gone to the effort and expense of gun confiscation?

The Turks did it to the Armenians. Lenin did it to Russians. Hitler did it to many Germans and all Jews. Stalin gave Russians a horrific double dose. And Mao, the world record holding mass murderer, did it to Red China.”

JPFO Founder the late Aaron Zelman, in an “Open Letter to Michael Savage” in 2009

Amidst all the hysterical screaming of leftist politicians, pundits, and the mind controlling socialist media in the wake of the Tucson lunacy of Jared Loughner, it is easy to lose sight of the “elephant in the room”.

The Second Amendment has nothing to do with “hunters’ rights”. It is not even to protect us from burglars, rapists, muggers, or even lunatics like Jared Loughner. These uses of a firearm for food or self defense are actually “spin offs” of the original intent of 2A.

An armed citizenry is a polite citizenry, this is true. However, an armed citizenry is the ONLY way to insure, to guarantee, that the potentially megalomaniacal egos of politicians, authoritarian police hierarchs (like Sheriff “Dimwit” Dupnik of AZ) and the military leadership are kept under a quiet, and yet very emphatic, restraint.

An armed citizenry whispers into the ears of every politician, soldier, and cop: “Steady there. Think again. Remember, if you get too far out of line, and come to enslave us, ‘We the People’ have retained the power to kill you.”

After all, these tax consumers all blithely refer to themselves as “public servants” don’t they? Then that makes “We the People” the masters, doesn’t it?

Don’t misread my words. All those hysterically addled leftist mind manipulators out there secretly know this is true. They hate it. But they know it is true, even through the fog of their gun phobic mental illness. Read “Raging Against Self Defense”.

If someone wants to accuse me of “hate speech” they’d better first begin by indicting, in absentia, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and virtually the entire cast of our Founders. I’m just an ordinary American who cherishes the liberty they created for me and my loved ones to enjoy. I, and millions of others, take this stuff very, very seriously.

A friend of mine once said it rather succinctly, right to the face of a 2A sympathetic police officer, a righteous and loyal American cop: “Obey the Constitution, and we won’t shoot you.”

The police officer was stunned…at first. And then he smiled and offered his hand to my friend. As these two patriotic Americans (my friend was a Marine Corp veteran) shook hands, the police officer said: “You got a deal.”

Want to learn more about these outstanding American police officers and soldiers? Go to the “Oathkeepers” website.

In closing: Friends, if you don’t own a gun, get one immediately (with at least 100 rounds of ammunition). Learn to use it well. And then pray that you never have to use it for the true reason our American Founders intended.

And one final suggestion: The more they tell us to “turn down the rhetoric”, the louder we must become. History teaches that this approach, and nothing else, will preserve our freedom. We cannot compromise with evil.

by Quagmire



As Preston and his comrades are busily outlining a functional anti-state strategy (and as a functional anti-state movement is busily coalescing around them) they have grown into a lightning rod for thunderstorms of left-wing hysterics. These have predictably emanated from those echo chambers of our institutions of lower learning known officially as the left-libertarian message boards.While I dedicated a past entry to defending his honor, I’ve neglected to pair my defense with a sturdy offense. My contempt for these over-protected mocha sippers is apparent from even the most cursory glance at this blog. My rationale for such a low evaluation, however, is not. So, while avoiding a backslide into rhetorical strawmen and ad hominem assaults, I have prepared this expanatory eviscreation.
A defining factor in the left-libertarian mindset is a decisive split from reality, one that renders them incapable of understanding, much less opposing, our current state of affairs. This is not unique to this faction, but likewise plagues the broader left of which they are an obvious subset. Specifically, they all but base their approach on the Marcusean identity politics inherited from the now graying New Left. This should not shock us in the least, given their origins as products of our academic idiot factories where those remnants have long held sway. Like their youthful disciples, these stale leftovers hail not from the underclass hordes whose interests they’ve appointed themselves to speak for, but from the very same strata they (correctly) attribute their misery to.
Somewhere between washing the mud off their legs and swapping cocaine for rogaine they found themselves at the helm of the very establishment they once told us we could never trust (a helm inherited, no doubt, from their bourgeoise folks.) With this dubious ascension the hollow nature of their rebellion became apparent so they started singing a different song. The establishment is your friend, the caring mama bear who will shelter you from white hoods, shaved heads, and tanned necks… and all the other nefarious nasties lurking under every bed and in every closet. Such scares are but a figment of the alzheimer’s encroached imagination of this mama bear. This time it’s the parents who are seeing and hearing things. And, another historic first, this time the kids actually listen to their parents. And…no break with tradition here…the kids repeat what they hear.
This effectively traps us in a cultural way back machine, with university engineered and approved TAPS teams chasing after ghosts that stopped hauntin’ these parts long ago, blind to their own status we should pull our covers over our heads for. When the well-off (and well-financed) anti-establishment agitators stormed the castle, they didn’t take a wrecking ball to it. They walzed on into the throne room of the new ousted monarch, assumed the throne, and unleashed a terror over the kingdom all their own. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. The aging W.A.S.P. feudal lords were thrown out, but the feudal system itself was not…their positions were merely assumed by those cut from a more colorful cloth.
So, if you’ll allow me to transition from medeaval conquest back to modern hauntings, we arrive at an unsettling conclusion. Not only do the young false exorcists of the modern Left lack the theological know-how to properly expel spirits, they themselves are the spirits that need exorcising. So, if you’ll allow me me to time-warp yet again back to the middle-ages, we find that it is in fact the former lords and ladies of our cultural kingdom that need to take up arms. For those taking up arms with thems, the strategic implications are clear…and which I will share in common English.

In this world of “hate speech” legislation and “sensitivity training”, is it really that radical a move to wail about “institutionalized racism”…or to defend free speech and open inquiry for the insensitive? Is it that bold to crusade in favor of “women’s rights” in this era of family courts and university-mandated feminist studies…or to act on behalf of father’s rights? Is railing against “homosphobia” that radical a cause in a country where the lifestly is mostly viewed as an amusing novelty…or to agitate for freedom of speech and association for bible thumpers who find it a bit over the top? Is it that courageous to prattle on about “peace” and “non-violence”…or to snag a position on your local NRA chapter’s leadership board? I find these truths self evident. It’s indeed an odd paradox where conservatism has become radical and leftism reactionary.

The liberal-capitalist status quo takes as its basis the atomized individual, and its reason de’ etre that individual’s whims and wants. In this societal conception, these faceless particles construct their own mini-realities through an impersonal web of economic interaction and exchange. Preffered social relations are those concieved materially, with those that aren’t submerged under pavement. This process, starting at the dawn of modernity and within recent decades shifting into high gear, is effectively dissolving traditional ethnic groups, national boundaires, and cultures. How can effective ressistance, then, be found among those who dismiss such things as archaic abstractions (to be disposed of, naturally, so we can finally discover our universal “humanity”)?

For all the shrieking over alt.anarchism’s supposed “collectivism”, I fail to detect any flaw in a social system hardwired for organically constituted communities. If living and working with those you share commonalities with is such cardinal sin, why not just have the nanny state intervene for reprogramming purposes? Because a liberal universalist agenda doesn’t fit all, but a state enforcing it does, the answer to the debate over which side is more prone to authoritarian slipups is clear.

In his televised 1971 debate with Noam Chomsky, no less a leftist icon as Michel Foucault dismissed then contemporary radical movements on the grounds that their underlying philosophy was often wholly in line with that of the prevailing regime. His AIDS-related passing in 1984 was unfortunate, as he never got to see the realization of this observation among the inanities posted on the LL messageboards.

The Petulant Fallacies Of Anti-Racist Action

Those who are most sensitive about “politically incorrect” terminology are not the average black ghetto dweller, Asian immigrant, abused woman, or disabled person, but a minority of activists, many of whom do not evenbelong to an “oppressed” group but come from priveleged strata of society.”-Theodore Kaczysnki, Industrial Society And Its Future

By Qaugmire

Those who regularly follow this blog will no doubt be familiar with my fellow writer Dustin Stanley’s incisive polemics against leftist race huckster Tim Wise. Dustin does an excellent job refuting the erroneous claims put forth by Wise, but the battle extends far beyond the man himself. You see, Wise reproduces at an rabbit-like rate, and his mutant offspring, upon sliding out of his fetid womb, begin carrying on his work prior to their eyes even opening. It is these vermin who shall bear the brunt of my wrath today. The faction referring haughtily to itself as “Anti-Racist Action” is the litter of puppies Wise had after getting pounded by Morris Dees. Like Wise, their membership is exclusively white. Like Wise, these scabs were raised in the comfort of middle-to upper-middle class backgrounds. And, like Wise, the self-hatred they bear over this leads them to embrace not only an utterly warped view of our society, but also an utterly warped way of combating it. Let us take a look at what they’re saying, shall we?

Points Of Unity

1. We go where they go: Whenever fascists are organizing or active in public, we’re there. We don’t believe in ignoring them or staying away from them. Never let the nazis have the street!

It should be pointed out that there exist only a small handful of “fascist” organizations in America, and these are tiny membership-wise with virtually no influence on, or recognition within, the broader society. This is why most ignore and stay away from them-because that’s the only logical thing to do with such groups. May I point out that antagonizing them is precisely what they want, because it shifts attention to them and makes them appear a larger threat than they actually are? As far as “letting them have the street” is concerned, legally they have the same right to organize and demonstrate publicly as other interest groups, and this trumps your youthful self-righteousness.

2. We don’t rely on the cops or courts to do our work for us: This doesn’t mean we never go to court. But we must rely on ourselves to protect ourselves and stop the fascists.
The reason you don’t rely on the law to do your “work” for you is because there’s nothing illegal about most the activities of most of the groups you object to. The only danger you have to protect yourselves from is that which you actively invite from groups you seek to antagonize. If you left them alone in the first place, perhaps you wouldn’t have to be looking over your shoulder for club-weilding skinheads. For instance, you can cease in your attempts to “stop the fascists” from exercising their constitutional rights to freedom of speech and assembly.

3. Non-sectarian defense of other anti- fascists: In ARA, we have lots of different groups and individuals. We don’t agree about everything and we have a right to differ openly. But in this movement an attack on one is an attack on us all. We stand behind each other.

The only ideological diversity to be found in this sorry lot is different strains of the same PC Leftardation. I’m sure a gaggle of shrill poseurs standing in unity together is an intimidating sight.

4. We support abortion rights and reproductive freedom. ARA intends to do the hard work necessary to build a broad, strong movement against racism, sexism, anti-Semitism, homohpobia, discrimination against the disabled, the oldest, the youngest, and the most oppressed people. We want a classless free society! WE INTEND TO WIN!

I don’t see what maintaining a pro-choice stance has to do with “fighting racism.” It’s actually worth mentioning that legalized abortion has already wiped out what would be a third of this group’s beloved “people of color.” Ialso don’t see what dragging out the usual laundry list of isms and phobias has to do with a “classless free society”, as such a world will likely only have freedom for those who agree with this ideology, and class is an economic factor distinct from race, gender, sexual orientation and the other PC pressure points this group puts on a pedestal.

Have Fun…Stay Young…Smash The Fash

Sooner or later, you’ll get older, your life will cease being fun, and you’ll replace “smasging the fash” with working a real job and tending to a dwindling hairline.

The fun continues on their FAQ page.

Q: What is Anti-Racist Action?

A: Anti-Racist Action is an international network of people from all walks of life dedicated to eliminating racism, sexism, homophobia, and other forms of discrimination from their communities. Since then, we’ve expanded into dozens of communities in five countries and three continents, making us one of the world’s largest and extensive anti-racist youth movements.

Anti-racist action is a human morass of middle-and upper middle class white kids whose microscopic minds have been molded by the publik edukashun establishment, and hence live under the delusion that we’re still living in Jackson, Mississippi circa 1958. This delusion is the flipside to their other, more prominent delusion, that carrying on about “racism, sexism, and homophobia” somehow makes them rebels raging against the machine. And yes, they have spread like a minor virus, but nothing a trip to the doctor won’t fix.

You get the picture. The group’s website contains a veritable treasure trove of gems like this, and I scarcely have time to share all of it with you. That I must unfortunately save for our next installment.

In Defense Of Keith Preston: A Rebuttal To Charles Johnson

“But with only five percent of the world’s population, is there some reason besides drippy universal brotherhood that we’re still recieving more immigrants than the rest of the world combined? Is it possible that behind all these multicolored baloons and heartwarming interracial photo-op handshakes lies the desire for a suplus pool of tractable laborers?”-Jim Goad, The Redneck Manifesto

By Quagmire

Keith Preston, the self-described “pan-secessionist” who mans the attackthesystem blog, has come under a degree of unfounded criticism recently, which I feel I must respond to. Keith has been subject to attack before, but never from worthy sources, and never for worthy reasons. This criticism has predictably come from cultural marxists, who insult him with vulgar strawmen for not kowtowing to their social agenda. It is the most recent example of this that I will be dissecting here. This steaming load of tripe comes from one Charles Johnson, who posts under the pseudonym “Rad Geek”, a name that is only half-accurate as he is most certainly a geek, but most certainly not a radical. Charles is a figurehead of the so-called “left-libertarian” aggregation, a relatively small group who attempt to meld populist libertarianism with cultural leftism and, in doing so, end up with something that reads like an exaggerated satire of left-anarchism. This is the problem with Keith and his strategy, from his (and their) perspective-

my problem with Keith’s approach is not that he suggests allying with criminalized, marginalized, or lumpen people.

We all agree with this. There is no need to point it out.

My problem is, first, that he has what I consider to be a disastrously selective view of whose criminalization and marginalization counts as legitamate libertarian concern.

And…it begins.

And, secondly, that he has the wrong idea about what the process of building such an alliance, and the terms on which allies might ally themselves with each other, looks like.

Keith wishes not to associate with the politically correct, as he feels that they are useless in this struggle. Given the collective failure of that crowd to accomplish anything during their four decades of existence, it appears his hostility is vindicated.

Hence, for example, his bizarre efforts to coddle pseudo-populist right-wingers who support the immigration police state and the mass criminalization of people without papers.

Let us deconstruct this statement. There is nothing at all “bizarre” about attempting to forge an alliance with the populist right, as they share the same decentralist vision that we do. Notice how he uses the word “coddle”, as if conservatives are intellectual children, and the term “pseudo-populist” as if embracing a leftist cultural agenda was a necessary requirement to be a crusader for the little guy. Also, there is no “immigration police state”, only open borders, and no “mass criminalization”, only amnesty and full access to a welfare state subsidized by the american taxpayer. I also adore the term “people without papers.” Softening the language to take the sting out of reality, Charles?

Whereas, in my view, if you’re concerned about identifying with the most criminalized, marginalized, exploited, and oppressed, it would be harder to find a better place to start than standing up for the rights of “illegal alein” workers confronting the border Stasi without government papers.

Why not side for the American poor and working class whose already sagging fortunes are worsened even further by this influx of immigrants ? “Rights” are legal constructs that have no existence indepent of human invention. The closest thing you have to “rights” are concessions granted to you by the regime you toil under. As such, these immigrants have no “rights” per se to stand up for. Finally, the term “illegal aleins” should not be subject to scare quotes because that is precisely what they are: aleins to our culture who tresspass in our country against the will of the majority of the population.

It is this breed of drivel that poisons and debilitates liberatory struggles. Understand that I point not one finger of blame on the mehicans themselves, as I understand their reasons for coming here. Contrary to the delusions of liberal multiculturalists, immigration is not a natural and inevitable fact, as no one uproots and leaves their home without good reason. It is only caused when dire economic circumstances render that home an unbearable place to live, which is precisely what capitalist globalization has done to Mexico. Our efforts should, then, be focused squarely on combating globalization in all its institutional manifestations: NAFTA, the WTO, the IMF, and the World Bank, as well as the state apparatus that allows its industrial beneficiaries to thrive. It is these same corporate bigwigs that are not coincidentally the foremost supporters of open borders, out of their endless lust for cheap labor and even cheaper production costs. You can’t fight an enemy whose interests you unkowingly agitate for.

Noam Chomsky: False Moses Of The Controlled Opposition

by Quagmire

Since 1955, American linguist and MIT professor Noam Chomsky has produced a prolific number of works exposing the unsavory proclivities of the U.S. regime and its moneyed masters. For this, he has enjoyed a kingly status within the American left, with generations of young activists and radicals hailing him as their brightest beacon. This has even spilled over into popular culture, with everyone from rockers U2 and Rage Against The Machine to funnyman Bill Hicks citing him as an inspiration. However, that appreciation is not universal, as the same antiestablishment screeds that earned him his iconic status on the left have embittered him to the american right, who have marked him a “traitor” and dismissed his criticism of our foreign policy as “anti-american.” Either way, he has dedciated his life to combating the American imperial regime, and it is in this capacity that I find him somewhat useless. Despite his claiming the title “anarcho-syndicalist” and his publicly stated commitment to anti-authoritarianism, his actual legislative postions belie this. Such as…

(on Ron Paul’s isolationism) “He is proposing a form of ultranationalism, in which we are concerned solely with our own wealth and extraordinary advantages, getting out of the U.N., rejecting any international prosecution of US criminals (for aggressive war, for example)etc. Aside from being next to meaningless, this idea is morally unaccpetable, in my view.”

I’ve grown weary of leftists cheerleading for the United Nations, as it demonstrates their profound ignorance when it comes to foreign policy. The U.N. is no check on American military aggression; rather it enables it through a sort of good cop-bad cop partnership with our regime. It’s main purpose will be to serve as a front for the American empire, when it finally attains global dominance.

(on gun control) “It’s pretty clear that, taken literally, the second amendment does not permit people to own guns. But laws are never taken literally, including amendments to the Constitution or Constitutional rights. Laws permit what the tenor of the times interperets them as permitting.” (from Secrets, Lies, And Democracy)

Why does this self-proclaimed “anarchist” take the same postion here as a mainstream liberal would? Whether the constitution allows citizens to possess firearms is irrelevant. What is not irrelevant is the encroaching police state our fearless leaders are imposing upon us, the only bulwark against which is an armed and well trained populace. Incidentally, it’s this sort of mental inconsistency that causes young birkenstockers to champion gun control while simultanously denouncing the PATRIOT act as an egregious violation of civil liberites.

The gems continue…

(on federal power)”I’d like to see the power of the federal government increased.”

If the power of the federal government was increased any more, it would explode. It’s been rapidly increasing in size since it was first instituted, and during this time so has the corporate system, the police state, and the foreign empire. Such developments prove it neccessary that anarchism be a decentralist affiar. Or is Chomsky still an anarchist?

on the draft) “So I was very much involved in the resistance (to the Vietnam War) but I was never against the draft.” (

What?

(on the welfare state) “It (classical anarhist thinking) leads directly to support for the people facing problems today: for enforcement of health and safety regulation, for provision of national health insurance, support systems for people who need them, etc.”

Actually, classical anarchist thought leads to the realization that such things are minor concessions intended to co-opt and pacify those to whom radicalism has the most appeal. Bakunin predicted this during anarchism’s infancy, and, over a century later, he has been proven correct. It has been well-documented by Gabriel Kolko and others that the welfare state he was referring to was initially conceived as a power consolidation mechanism for corporate interests. The health and regulatory agencies he refers favorably to are staffed by a revolving door of lobbyists and insiders, representing businesses for whom the added cost of regulation can be passed effortlessly on to the consumer. Meanwhile, the same costs cause increased difficulty for working people attempting to develop alternative economic systems outside the state-connected and stae-priveleged corproate framework.


It is obvious that Chomsky has been duped into swallowing the managerial-liberal line, somehow failing to realize that the liberal-progressive system he favors is merely the latest front for capitalist class rule. Unfortunately, the budding leftists who take their marching orders from him are drawn through the same trick door, entering the shapeless void of an increasingly wrongheaded and irrelevant left.

“Tolerance”: The Ongoing Pussification Of American Culture

by Quagmire
The now unavoidable dogma of “tolerance” and “sensitivity” is, when stripped of the utopian and idealist visions it is intended to provoke, a form of cultural regression. In the same way consumerism reduces what would otherwise be functioning adults to the the intellectual status of children, political correctness reduces these same hapless victims to the same low status emotionally. What would in cultures untained by this contagion be accepted as inevitable and dismissed as non-events in the “tolerant” culture becomes elevated to the level of a natural disaster or similar catastrophe. The heavy-hand of the law is summoned as the only remedy where that law is uneeded and where its prescence is undesirable. Case in point:
Police: Boy, 16, made racial comment a N.J. Wal-Mart
A 16-yr old boy, someone fairly low on our societal food chain, made a “racial comment” at a New Jersey Wal Mart, someplace farily low on our societal food chain-and the police get involved? Is there not legitamate criminal behavior occuring in the area for them to be involved with?
WASHINTON TOWNSHIP, N.J.-A 16 yr old boy who police said made an announcement at Wal-Mart ordering all black people in the southern New Jersey store to leave was charged with intimidation and bias harrassment, authorities said Saturday.
Blacks have already successfully survived slavery and Jim Crow, I highly doubt they would feel “intimidated” and “harrassed” by a scrawny, crater-faced adolescent yowling through an intercom. Notice how he is being “charged” with hurting people’s feelings the same way one would be charged with hurting someone’s body. Any nation that considers emtional and physical wounds to be morally equivalent is a nation of infants.
The boy, whose name is not being released because he is a juvenile, grabbed one of the courtesy phones at Walmart’s Washington Township Square sunday evening and calmly announced: “Attention, Walmart customers: All black people, leave the store now” police said.
This sounds more like a juvenile prank than anything else. A prank in poor taste, but a prank nonetheless. May I point out that certain individuals possess an innate tendency to embrace cultural taboos, and that the hypermoralism of political correctness grants these things a humorous appeal they would not otherwise have?
The teen was arrested friday and released to the custody of his parents; police did not know whether he had a lawyer.
So the police actually spent a full workweek tracking this idiot down and arresting him…five days after the fact? And if he was immediately released into his parent’s custody, what was the point of arresting him in the first place? Ooooh now he needs a lawyer to defend him because he said bad wowds that huwt peopw’s pweshus feewings. Again, only in a nation of infants.
“This was an extremely disturbing event on many levels” Glouchester County Prosecutor Sean Dalton said at a news conference. “Any statements like these that can cause harm or great concern must be addressed as quickly as we possibly can.”
Some teenager pulling a dumb prank-and it was a dumb prank-is “an extremely disturbing event on many levels.” Any juvenile antics like these that can cause crying and bedwetting in a community of pussified liberals must be laughed at as loudly as we possibly can.
Dalton said the case would be handled in juvenile court in neighboring Atlantic County, where the boy lives. He would not say whether the boy has a criminal record, citing the teen’s age, and would not disclose the teen’s race, saying that did not factor into the equation.
Ooh now the New Jersey taxpayer is getting bilked to pay for it, and lawyers and judges are being sapped of their valuable time to handle it. Are there not legitimate cases these resources could be allocated to? Given the dystepic situation of young people in our decaying world, i’m sure the juvenile court system has plenty.
Authorities would not say if the announcement was planned or had been made impulsively. Police said they were also investigating a teenage boy who had accompanied the suspect to the store, but the other boy has not been charged.
Again, they’re talking about this as if it was a legitimate crime. Were the huwtfuw comments unplanned or premeditated? And how exactly are they “investigating” his buddy? Are they going to question him with things like “Did you help him come up with this idea?” or, better yet “Is he working for you?”. And if he does end up geeting charged, what will those charges be?” Accomplice to first degree insult”?
Officials for Bentonville, Ark.-based Wal-Mart Stores inc. said the announcement was “unacceptable”, and Dalton praised the company for its strong cooperation in the investigation.
Damn, I can’t think of a smartass comment to throw in here. So we move on…
“We’re pleased this matter is resolved” Wal-Mart spokesperson Dave Tovar said in a statement issued after the news conference. We have updated our intercom system at this store to prevent this from ever happening again. We again apologize to all of our customers and associates who had to listen to something so offensive.”
Well, I’m glad they’re taking that first step to recovery. Perhaps Hillary Clinton can now show up and “help the healing begin.” Dave, man, your customers and associates aren’t entitled to an apology. Everyone at some point has to listen to something offensive-it’s a law of nature and inevitable fact of life. Instead of apologizing, you should educate them on the emotional benefits of growing a pair of balls and getting the fuck over it.
Although a manager quickly went to the intercom and apologized for the remark, many customers expressed their anger to store management. Some community members said Saturday that they’ve heard reports of similar incidents happening that were not reported to the police.
I’m sure he did, and I’m sure they did. The reason those incidents were not reported to the police was because it’s not their job to take care of everything that is offensive to you. I have no idea precisely what type of community this is, but its members seem to have an entitlement mentality.
“We are concerned about that, and we’re looking into these incidents. We want to work with the community to make sure these types of incidents don’t happen,” said Loretta Winters, president of the Gloucester County chapter of the NAACP.
And how exactly is that to be accomplished? With surveillance cameras and voice recorders posted everywhere? With Tolerance Police patrolling the streets? I’m onto you fucks.
Winters said she hopes the boy will get counseling and be educated about sensitivity so he can understand the consequences of his actions.
Read: She will demand that the boy be coerced into attending a mandatory sensitivity training course where he will be stripped of his individuality and he reporgrammed as another mindless drone within the hive of the multicult. Personally, I hope someone introduces him to Tom Sunic so he’ll understand why he is right and they are wrong.
“I’m assuming this person didn’t realize how hurtful his comments were” she said.
Again with the infantile bellyaching about hurt feelings. Let me make this crystal clear: nothing in the united states constitution gives you a right not to have your feelings hurt, no matter how hard you want to believe otherwise.
The incident is the latest in a series of problems the retailer has had in its dealings with minorities and women.
Oh, I bet.
There have been several past instances of black customers claiming they were treated unfairly at Wal Mart stores, and the company faced lawsuits that women were passed over in favor of men for pay raises and promotions.
If you’re shopping at Wal-Mart, then life is treating you unfairly in the first place. Yes, and if man were passed over in favor of women for those advancements it would be positive discrimination, a neccessary step in the struggle for social justice.
In February 2009, the retailer paid $17.5 million to settle a class action lawsuit alleging racial discrimination in the hiring of truck drivers.
Ooh I wanted a job and you didn’t give me it so now you owe me money.
And the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission sued the company in May 2009, claiming some Hispanic employees at a Sam’s Club subsidiary in California were subjected to a hostile work envieronment. That suit alleges managers failed to stop repeated verbal harrassment, including the use of derogatory words, against employees of Mexican descent.
The purpose of this dreadful buraucracy is to ensure you have equal opportunity, not to protect your precious little ears once that opportunity arrives. Perhaps those Mexicans should have stood up for themselves and told their harrasser’s to fuck off, which I would respect far more than trying to enlist their bosses to fight their battles for them. This is the adult world equivalent of tugging on mommy’s dress and pointing to the kid who called you a bad name. Well, when you get to a certain age mommy is going to stop caring, and you’re well past that age.
However, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has said the company has worked hard in recent years to show it cares about diversity.
Diversity=a broad range of skin colors, genders, sexual orientations, and other superficialities, all processed through the same social engineering mechanisms and subordinated to the same secular theocracy.
Dear reader, this bullshit can only last a limited period of time before it self-destructs. Upon that glorious day, we can dance the tango on its charred remains.

Progressivism: Capitalism With A Human Face

by Quagmire

The foremost requirement for vanquishing a foe is a thorough understanding of the foe and how it came into and maintains its existence. If you understand how existence is maintained, then you know how it is destroyed. Without this understanding, your foe is impervious to your attacks and will continue to successfully reconstitute himself. The capitalist system was borne a child of modernity, and as such is to blame for the erosion of the institutions we as Radical Traditionalists seek to defend. Was it not capitalist individualism that first atomized the individual and destroyed communal and familial ties? Was it not capitalist industrialization which severed humankind’s relationship with nature? Was it not capitalist globalization that produced the internationalist structures that are currently destorying the sovergnity of all nations? Is it also not that same system which is opening occidental borders and allowing in the current tidal wave of third world colonists? Was it not capitalism that destroyed genuine arts and literature and produced the shallow consumerism we live with today? I believe that the identity of our enemy is self-evident. Our guns must be set for the capitalist system and its plutocratic overlords, but first we must gain an understanding of its functions, without which we are merely firing blanks.

Capitalism is a most monstrous system, one that suboridantes and extracts wealth from the vast majority for the sake of the tiny few. It is not “individualism”, as its supporters claim, but a strictly regimented, class-based collectivism. It is not a “free market”, for its foundation is a thick ground of state intervention. The only “freedom of choice” it affords its victims is the choice between labor and starvation, and the only “upward mobility” it allows for is an ever expanding toyshelf of consumer goodies. It is an economic sociopath. In order to prosper without their true nature exposed, sociopaths need an appealing face, a non-threatening mask behind which to hide. For sociopathic persons, that mask is a respected position in the local economy or community, or within a family. For capitalism, that mask is progressivism, the ideology of managerial liberalism and social control that first hold in this country with the Wilson Administration. While movement conservatives attack it with great frequency, those attacks are always entirely innaccurate. Progressivism is not marxism, nor is it even a form of socialism; it is not a kinder, gentler way of transforming us into the Soviet States of America. It is a kinder, gentler way of dominating and exploiting the majority of the population. It is capitalism with a human face.
Movement conservatives are correct to demonize progressivism, even though they are doing it for completely incorrect reasons. The American welfare state is not an attempt by crypto-marxists to subvert and destroy a non-existent “free market”. It is an attempt by technocratic elites to subvert and destroy genuinely liberatory movements for the sake of what is most definitely not a free market. The statist institutions it has spawned exist for the purpose of subverting radical movements by placing those who would be drawn to them under the auspices of specially trained technocrats (the so-called “New Class”) and pacifying them through state dependance. The publik edukashun system, as exposed by writer and researcher John Taylor Gotto, is a thinly veiled instrument of social control; deliberately neglecting to instill in its young victims the tool of critical thought, it does its job of preparing “our future” (i.e. the next forgettable wave of competent workers, satisfied consumers, and law-abiding citizens.) The New Deal welfare state, imposed on us by Franklin Roosevelt, serves the same purpose with the poor; by herding them into the urban plantation of public housing and handing them a small check every month, they are effectively pacified and genuine class warfare is prevented from erupting.
The left has continually failed in its long-running crusade against the American industrial establishment. This is because they have bought into the myth of progressivism, viewing these distortions as “gains” and “reforms” and believing mistakenly that they were “fought for from below” rather than imposed from above. So instead of working to undermine the facade that legitimizes their foe, they have embraced it and allowed it. In doing so, they have become useful idiots for the very enemy they ostensibly oppose. (They have also embraced wholeheartedly the liberal-capitalist system’s cultural component, cultural marxism, further eroding their relevance and dooming them to failure, which I am dedicating my next post to elaborating on.) However, we among the revolutionary right will not repeat that mistake and in doing so, will beat the left at their own game.

White Lies

White Lies

Richard Hoste seems to differ from my view that the Right (used, of course, in a very broad sense) could in no way benefit from misrepresenting MLK as a small-government conservative. Richard believes that if we continue to tell blacks the noble lie, which the neoconservatives and Glenn Beck have worked so hard to spread, we may be able to neutralize all the race-hustling black leaders.

There are at least three problems with this argument that come readily to mind. One, the lie is so transparent that until now only movement conservatives have bought it; and in this case we are dealing with people who are so incredibly gullible or so thoroughly bribed that they’ll say anything they’re told to say by those who move their strings. I myself have never met a movement conservative or GOP hack who actually thought that King was a “conservative theologian” or an exponent of Thomistic natural law. Rather I’ve encountered dolts who read NR or Weekly Standard and who have told me “we should say this because that’s what we have to say.” Of course the same humanoids have proclaimed Joe Lieberman to be a conservative “because he’s good on the war.”

Two, nobody, including blacks, could possibly believe the crass lie that Richard wishes to see propagated. There is overwhelming evidence, plus media treatment of King’s life and influence, that would keep anybody with even room temperature intelligence (which may exclude most movement conservatives) from buying the proffered snake oil. Watching Beck go nuts (that is more nuts than he usually seems) because a black celebrity described King as a socialist, I had the definite feeling of being on Mars. Does anyone on this planet with even a grade school education not know that King was a left-leaning socialist, who favored special rights for his race? One can quote until the cows come home that banal line about judging people by “the content of their character.” But this does not change the rest of King’s politics, which are an open book, even for blacks.

Three, the cult of King is intertwined with a political purpose, from which it cannot be dislodged. It is a replacement theology for a now mostly moribund Christianity, which incorporates certain older religious themes but places them in a multicultural context. King is the suffering Redeemer, whose birthday comes a few weeks after the traditional date for celebrating the Christian Redeemer; and his death was expiatory, like that of Christ, although, unlike Christ’s kingdom, that of the black socialist savior is situated in this world. King’s mission began the process of cleansing white America of its original sin of racism. But this redemption did not work all at once when he died. Further sacrifice is demanded of the sinner in the form of the demands that the fallen Redeemer laid upon us, that is, more socialism, more set-asides, more rites of atonement, etc. To try to change this powerful symbolism by reconstructing King into something he clearly was not, perhaps a precursor of Glenn Beck or David Horowitz, is a fool’s errand. King was exactly what he was. That he has become the replacement Deity in a post-Christian public theology may strike some of us as laughable. But that elevation is connected to what he said and did. The cult of MLK reflects a certain reality, while Richard’s counter-narrative builds on nothing more than a neocon lie.
