2nd Amendment Discussion

  • The Battle of Athens (Tennessee) is a case in point for remaining armed and trained, with modern rifles, to overthrow government corruption when necessary. We think of armed conflict in the United States in terms of the Revolutionary War or Civil War. We don’t think in terms of having to take a county government back by force. But that’s exactly what happened in Tennessee in 1946. Here’s an interesting point of history you won’t read in mainstream publications, because like the intentionally buried CDC reports on defensive gun use, it supports the right to keep and bear arms. From a group of people who may know a little something about victim disarmament and genocide: http://jpfo.org/filegen-a-m/athens.htm

    @boothe Working my way through the story, but one interesting note is that those attempting to prevent an honest election were the Democrats. What’s even more interesting is that the first shot fired was from one of the men sent in to bully the voters and that he shot a black man in the back. It seems the tactics might change but the Dems remain the same.

  • Oh, do you mean like this Democ-Rat? http://www.intellectualtakeout.org/blog/did-lbj-say-ill-have-those-nggers-voting-democratic-200-years Yeah the Democ-Rats are such fine, truthful folks. They do everything they can to keep all of us “on the plantation”, not just black people. Seems like Kanye West sees through their “squid ink” and the leftist propaganda machine entertainment industry is having a fit. “Disarmed & Dependent” should be the Democ-Rat’s motto. That would be truth in advertising. Don’t hold your breath. When you finish up with the Battle of Athens, here’s some food for thought on the racist roots of gun control: http://jpfo.org/articles-assd02/cramer-racist-roots.htm

  • Well, well. It finally comes out. The Parkland school shooter, after repeated denials by superintendent Robert Runcie, was referred to the Promise Program. Runcie was on record with this: “Let me reiterate this point. Nikolas Cruz, the shooter that was involved in this horrific accident at Marjory Stoneman Douglas, had no connection to the PROMISE program.” Now it turns out that was a lie. http://dailycaller.com/2018/05/07/parkland-shooter-was-part-of-controversial-discipline-program/

  • The CDC did extensive surveys on defensive gun use from 1996 - 1998. Why did they bury their findings? What they discovered almost exactly mirrored Gary Kleck’s 1992 assertion that defensive gun use occurred 2.5 million times a year in the United States. Somehow I don’t think those were the results the Clinton administration was looking for. XD

  • @boothe not only that but around half of all gun related deaths are suicide. So the whole guns are the big bad narrative is weakening by the minute

  • administrators

    @iattacku Actually it’s closer to 2/3 of all gun related deaths are suicide. I believe I remember a number of 30,000 annual gun-related deaths being thrown around back when Camera Hogg was still relevant, but they were including suicides which was approximately 20,000 of those deaths.

  • @jak Your “closer to 2/3” figure is quite correct. Even the New York Times had to acknowledge that: https://www.nytimes.com/2015/10/09/upshot/gun-deaths-are-mostly-suicides.html

  • If you don’t believe the “progressive left” want to take your guns, think again. They want to stop school marksmanship programs even if it’s just air rifles or archery to prevent spreading the “gun culture”. Archery? Now what in the world does archery have to do with this so-called “gun culture”? See this: http://dailycaller.com/2018/05/11/new-york-linda-rosenthal-shooting-sports-spreads-gun-culture/

  • Boothe my man, I have to somewhat disagree with the Dems being consistent over time. Have they been consistently evil over time? Sure. The Repubs have been consistently milquetoast-evil over the same time period. Both of them more from successful exploitation of the political ecosystem than principled adherence to some kind of demonic DNA.

    It is easy to see a consistency and say, “ah! it’s been the same thing all along.” How easy is it to create a multi-generational conspiracy? It’s a bit like the Federal Reserve Bank. It couldn’t have been designed in order to enslave the world into debt over a hundred and fifty years. The people who started it did not care about their great-great-great grandchildren ruling the world. They just set something into motion that affected the next ten years, they were replaced by people who had their eyes on the subsequent ten years, and so on. The systems inhabit niches and attempt to expand them. The consistency is more due to a relatively-stable social energy dynamic over the observed time period. Institutional memory, not constitutional memory.

    All in all, if the Democrats of today were suddenly replaced with the Democrats of a hundred years ago, I’d probably vote for them – but they’d have to bring their own spittoons.

  • @ransom If I came across as thinking that the Democ-Rats were consistent over a long time-line, let me clarify. We have actually seen the D and R sides of this WWE style staged political cage fight flip sides. It was, arguably, the Democ-Rats that wanted to keep slavery intact and the Rethuglicans that wanted to free the slaves (not really, but it was good PR to keep the French and English out of the war). There is credible historical evidence that Lincoln supported socialism and especially National Socialism. There’s no doubt that “Honest Abe” was a Henry Clay whig. Here’s what that means: https://mises.org/library/henry-clay-national-socialist

  • @boothe don’t forget teddy the og progressive

  • @boothe Huh, Henry Clay. Sounds like a scoundrel.

    This is what I hate about history. The only truly effective way to understand history is to completely understand all 200+ billion humans who have ever lived. Anything less is a low-fidelity approximation.

    The Mises article on Clay was interesting, but it said he backed a sort of national socialism. Their article on Natsoc (https://mises.org/library/national-socialism) covered new ground for me. I don’t really see how Clay was any sort of Natsockist though. Let alone that Natsoc hadn’t been formally defined until the 1900s (though anyone can hold the beliefs before the theory is laid out), the article makes Clay seems more like a manic plutocrat than a principled Natsockdrawer.

    Anyway, screw Lincoln. I don’t see why it’s so important to like him. That’s the trouble with fame; legacy becomes a tool to use rather than something actually left behind.

    @Iattacku Yeah, the Tedster. I do kind of like him though, if only because he actually dove into the chaos he created instead of standing back and turning other men’s blood into money. I don’t agree with his beliefs but at least he seemed sincere for the most part.

    It’s funny. He is generally a hero to the left but if he came forward in time and opened his mouth they would all pass out from psychic anguish. That’s probably true about a lot of the people I admire as well.

  • @ransom yea i im the same as you. I like him as a person and all the cool stuff he did but i dont agree with all his political beliefs. And you are right unlike most modern politicians Teddy wasn’t a pussy.

  • @ransom and true about the history thing. Humans and human society is rarely black and white and there are motivations upon motivations in any movement, group, etc.

  • @iattacku said in 2nd Amendment Discussion:

    @ransom and true about the history thing. Humans and human society is rarely black and white and there are motivations upon motivations in any movement, group, etc.

    Yeah. There is so much going on that people can draw out pretty much whatever narrative suits their purpose, consciously or not.

  • @ransom One thing that I do to filter the noise is to read what the historical figure said and wrote. As in the case of Lincoln, you can read his words and draw your own conclusions. Something I have learned over the years is this: When a man tells you who he is, believe him.

  • @boothe Heh, to a point.

    On the one hand you have Jesus. On the other, Nero. Both claimed to be God.

    I don’t know that Jesus had any stringed instrument experience though.

  • @ransom Maybe you took my statement “When a man tells you who he is, believe him.” a bit too literally, LOL. In Yeshua’s (Jesus) case, He claimed to be the son of man. I would refer you to Mark 10:18 “And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good except God alone.” Nero on the other hand…
