Compare the two – and recall that Lizzy Warren (Fauxahaunus, with (maybe) 1/128th AmerInd blood) claims that she is that “wise Native American woman” we need so much in the White House.
After the attack this weekend on the West Freeway Church of Christ meeting in Texas, she was asked about changing her mind on concealed carry. Her reply? ” The first part is, I say that the reason those people were injured was that somebody came into that church with a gun. And that’s how it is that people got hurt in the first place. The second thing is I don’t think there’s any data to suggest that universal concealed carry makes any of us feel safer. I don’t feel safer going to my church knowing that somebody could be sitting next to me with weapons. I don’t feel safer going to the mall knowing that some fight that ordinarily might have escalated into a little push and shove could escalate into everybody whips out weapons. I don’t feel any safer. But I will say this. We have a gun violence problem in America.”
She can’t even get her lies straight, can she? There is certainly a lack of logic in her response. One might even say there is a large amount of madness in it. The crowd, of course, most all her supporters and therefore advocates of massive increases in American socialism – as well as disarmament – exploded in cheers.
It is very hard to see these misguided sheep – following her and the other 13 remaining major Demo candidates for Massa – as anything but our enemies. The enemies not just of us and liberty, but of society and civilization itself.
However, we need to understand that they are deluded, fearful, and (mostly) educated in government institutions. They must have some demagogue to follow. And preferably with blind faith.
They are the ones terrorized by the ads which tell us “crime rates are exploding” and so we must buy whatever it is they have to sell us. They are the ones that Limbaugh used to satirize as the people who subscribe to “Bad Living Magazine.” Who are terribly afraid that everyone else is like them: vindictive, unable to control their reactions, filled with hate (however much they try to disguise it), and lusting after control over their neighbors.
What can we do about them?
As much as possible, ignore them. Let their insults and bad “facts” and fears slide off our backs. Do everything we can to avoid them, to keep out of their clutches, and give them any hope of lording it over us. (More than they already do.)
But at the same, we need to be vigilant. We need to keep a careful eye on them, to make sure that we know what they are doing. So we can, among other things, take more action to negate their attempts to control us more and more.
And because sometimes there WILL be an opportunity to teach them. After some shock, after some leader of their mad rush over the cliff is revealed as the hypocrites and liars that they are.
Although those leaders – like Warren and virtually everyone running for Prez this year – are hypocrites and liars and tyrants, they are more. They may seem to be as stupid as the people they are leading. But they are not. Like demagogues of the past, they know what buttons to push – and they realize the results of the actions that they are pushing. The more that they whip up the emotions of the mob, the more that they like it. Because it lets them further their agenda.
If we lovers of liberty are not careful, we will find ourselves, our liberties, our families and our communities completely in thrall to these people. That is what happened in Virginia last year. That is what happened in California years ago.
Don’t let it happen again: be vigilant, be prepared, be ready to act.
