Another Stooge Heard From


A reader sends this link to the Greensboro, NC paper, with the following gem from Congressman Brad Miller:

***
…U.S. Rep. Brad Miller , D- 13th District, counters those fears assume “a tyrannical government.” He said the idea that armed citizens serve as an effective check on a modern military is “kind of a fantasy.”

“Given the power of the military now, the weaponry available to the military and the powers of the government, the idea that armed citizens are an important check on government just seems unrealistic,” Miller said. “And it leads to the kind of carnage that we saw in Aurora.”

Does anyone think the gentleman from North Cackalacky understands that FREEFOR will NOT be aiming at .mil forces, at least in the early stages of the Coming Festivities?

Thought not.

The spear is not the point.

The point is not the spear.

Audentes fortuna iuvat.

  1. F– face. Boy, does this piss me off. Posted.

  2. Yeah, because big federal armies always destroy insurgents with ease.

    Because after a decade of effort, American soldiers are not still dying in a Central Asian backwater populated mostly by goatherds. The war in Afghanistan is won and the country is at peace. Right?

    And after nearly 9 years in Iraq, the war is won and the country is at peace. The US military did not withdraw with its tail between its legs. There were not 7 incidents this month of post-withdrawal insurgent activity.

    Did you just cough, CA? Because it sounded like you said Chechnya. Or maybe I heard Bosnia. Or Kosovo, Yugoslavia, Mexico, Cuba…

      Excellent!
      And WE ARE the finest armed civilian force in the world, period.

  3. Dear Jesus, what a fuckwit. His colleague in the Senate, J. McCain (Rino) Az, want to arm the Syrian rebels. American rebels don’t need to be armed. Re-supplied, maybe. Armed? Not so much.

  4. Does he have enough mental wattage to realize the fallacy of his “logic,” if someone were to actually point it out to him?

    Nah, me neither.

  5. LOL. He think the military would be targeted and not traitorous bastards like him! What a dumb ass!

    The military hasn’t legislated away our rights – pieces of crap like him have.

      The military hasn’t legislated away our rights – pieces of crap like him have.

      And a rapist will rape your wives if you let them…

      As you were saying?

      Neither has the military prevented your rights from being legislated away… like you… me… us.

      Just try to be a little honest.

  6. I’ll be blunt: Brad and his globalist friends cannot Gulag the planet until they disarm the White American middle and working classes. And they know it. Thus their increasingly frantic gun-grab efforts. As for Civil War II, I expect entire states will eventually secede. Bringing whole National Guard divisions with them: AFVs, A10s, etc. That’ll somewhat egalize the playing field against the Central Regime.

  7. Hey, all you need is votes. The ballot box will protect us.

    Sorry fellas. He’s called it.
    Government’s gotten too big for you puny mortals to contend with.
    Best y’all drop those guns along with yer breeches and grease up for what’s a-comin’.

  9. ghostsniper

    Why take on the military when it’s the Brad Miller’s of the world that need cappin’. jest sayin’

  10. What he really said:
    ” and the powers of the government, the idea that … citizens are a…
    check on government just seems unrealistic,”

  12. Tell that to the Middle East, Bosnia, North Africa. Seems to me like a bunch of rag-headed goatherds does very well against the professional militaries, especially ours. And as others have said, by the time the army gets involved, a lot of the politicos will be taking dirt naps or living in other countries under assumed names.

    How many of our soldiers will be out there shooting their neighbors and friends? And how many of them will be turning their weapons on the traitors who sold the country out? How do these brainless morons get elected into office anyway?

  13. First mother fracking troll limps in here with bile covered lips spewing that rank and file US combat troops, who by now have figured out how they’ve been hung out to die, will kill their fellow citizens to prop up tyrannical assholes like O’fucnutz can eat shit and die.

    Don’t even bother.

  14. Motive, people…..

    Who stands to gain by convincing you that the odds are long and hopeless?

    The same commentators appear here and elsewhere, over and over, with a monotonous litany of despair; a drumbeat of overwhelming, insurmountable odds; a gloomy, fatalistic acceptance of the inevitability and finality of ultimate disaster.

    Why? What sort of contribution to the cause of Liberty is that? How does that encourage resistance or enable victory? Who are these people? What motivates them?

    It’s one thing to gather intelligence and squarely face the facts, and quite another to turn it into agitprop.

    You can assess, evaluate and plan for the first, but only react negatively to, or learn to IGNORE, the second.

    Spiritual Armor, my friends, in these dire straits, is the FIRST order of preparation. It matters not whether you are a “religious,” the principles are the universal:

    Our cause is just. (Anyone who doubts that needs to stfu and search their bitter, wizened little souls.)

    The Enemy of Mankind is Evil. Our opponents are the servants of Evil. Their utter destruction is our goal. Justice must be done. (Doubters see parenthetical comment just above.)

    Fear and doubt are our greatest obstacles. Become immune to the voices of doom. The Enemy has many liars, both the willing and the unknowing.

    Make your life and your death count toward Victory, so that…

    Liberty is bequeathed to our posterity. Our children’s hopes rise or fall with us.

    A warrior must believe.

    Action cannot evolve from paralysis. Right action cannot proceed without faith.

    • And still….

      Remember your Stockdale:

      http://westernrifleshooters.blogspot.com/2009/01/stockdales-paradox.html

      “You must never confuse faith that you will prevail in the end – which you can never afford to lose – with the discipline to confront the most brutal facts of your current reality, whatever they might be.”

      See also from the linked article:

      ***
      …I didn’t say anything for many minutes, and we continued the slow walk toward the faculty club, Stockdale limping and arc-swinging his stiff leg that had never fully recovered from repeated torture. Finally, after about a hundred meters of silence, I asked, “Who didn’t make it out?”

      “Oh, that’s easy,” he said. “The optimists.”

      “The optimists? I don’t understand,” I said, now completely confused, given what he’d said a hundred meters earlier.

      “The optimists. Oh, they were the ones who said, ‘We’re going to be out by Christmas.’ And Christmas would come, and Christmas would go. Then they’d say, ‘We’re going to be out by Easter.’ And Easter would come, and Easter would go. And then Thanksgiving, and then it would be Christmas again. And they died of a broken heart.”

      Another long pause, and more walking. Then he turned to me and said, “This is a very important lesson. You must never confuse faith that you will prevail in the end – which you can never afford to lose – with the discipline to confront the most brutal facts of your current reality, whatever they might be.”

      There are folks who urge spiritual faith and courage.

      Those are good things.

      There are also folks who do not yet understand that those who take on the machine in the way that the machine has been training for more than a decade on the two-way range are not going to stay alive very long, let alone win.

      There are other folks who know that the way the Vietnamese insurgents and the Islamic insurgents have defeated the American military machine over the past 37 years is to concentrate serious efforts on the American home front battlespaces of psychology, personal self-interest, and overall cost/benefit.

      How many FreeFor folks really get that point in all of its fullness?

      • I wrote against endless and fatal pessimism, not in favor of any sort of blind and insupportable optimism.

        I asked one and all to consider the motives and/or mindset of our perpetual jeremiahs, to consider the effects of dwelling incessantly on doom.

        And I urged Spiritual Armor or if you prefer, psychological and mental preparation for the suffering and heavy tasks ahead.

        I hope that, whether or not these questions and advice are dealt with in these comments, my friends and compatriots will ponder and answer in their hearts.

  15. I get it, boss. But WTF, I didn’t always. It will just be a long, crappy haul, and victory goes to the ones who quit last. As in Endeavor to Persevere.

    “Endeavor to Persevere” as spoken by Chief Joseph and later by Chief Dan George (in the excellent “Outlaw Josey Wales” movie) are words I’ve used before, and expect they may characterize what lies ahead for us in the most efficient and concise manner possible.

    Keep your powder dry, and Endeavor to Persevere,
