The Dissonance Of Leftists

Recently I read something posted online by a man who speaks of "building a new world", and who states that he "hereby renounces his 2nd Amendment rights".  He believes the lie that terrorists and violent criminals are not the problem, that guns themselves are the problem.

I know this man personally.  He's a decent man who cares deeply about his family, and I have a great deal of respect for him.  But the "new world" he speaks of is based on a vast lie, and he will not see that.  It is a lie told by people whose only goal is absolute power, and if it comes to pass, it will be at the expense of his family's Freedom.  This man is a Christian, but he chooses to preemptively surrender his ability to defend that Freedom.  I don't believe this dissonance is based on fear, but on his willingness to ignore reality, and to believe the false assurances made by men who would enslave us.

Freedom is not a condition allowed at the discretion of other men, it is a right given to us by God.  In the pursuit of power, other men will try to take that Freedom away, and the only choice we have in the matter is to surrender it, or fight to defend it.    

I am grateful for that gift from God, and I will defend it with my life.  I carry a gun for the same reason I look before I cross the street.  God made me a sentient being, and I accept the responsibility to take care of myself and the people around me.   I have a right and a duty to do that.   As a Christian, I can do no less.

Something Scary For Halloween

It was the Fall of 2065.  The monsoons had ended, and the terrain was dry.  Silently, two fire teams, led by Captain Matthew Falk, moved west through the Sitgreave Range toward the command post on Chevelon Bluff.  A new moon had risen in the east two hours before, and the men knew the area very well.  The bluff lay another 5 miles to the west, and they would be there before sunrise.  They had just crossed the creek, and the terrain began to rise as they moved uphill toward their goal.  They would relieve two of the teams that manned the CP.  The bluff marked the western boundary of the Arizona territory.  It offered an unobstructed view to the west, and from there they could control the choke points that offered the only access for approaching jihadi probes.  Other such compounds existed across the nation, and slowly, they would be reunited. 

Years before, the Arizona group had joined forces with the Navajo.  We had collaborated before, in the face of a different enemy.  They had lived in this terrain for millenia, and, to a man, they were warriors.  Their lands were sacred to them, and they would not tolerate the insult imposed by people who had no honor.  In the face of this threat, as before, they too were Americans.  What Captain Falk encountered as he returned through the Sitgreaves would haunt him forever….

When Our Public Servants Become Our Masters

Try walking into any foreign country and announcing: "Your laws do not apply to me, only the laws that I brought with me.  Furthermore, any rights your people have are null and void if they offend me."  How far do you think you would get?   Islamists believe they have the right to do just that, and they get more than a little help from the people running our government.  When our public servants become our masters, they are free to redefine the nation as it suits them.  

Bill Killian is a US Attorney with the DOJ who informs us that any criticism of Islam violates the civil rights of Muslims.  He said:  
“This is an educational effort with civil rights laws as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion. This is also to inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are.”

My right to have an opinion, and my right to express it, are clearly spelled out in the Constitution.  But the constitution didn't create those rights.  The constitution is merely a document that places boundaries on the government's ability to interfere with those rights.  I'm not a free man merely because the constitution says I am, I'm a free man because I say I am.  The freedom to express my thoughts is one of the "unalienable rights" enumerated in that document.  They were given to me by my Creator, not by the government.

Fourteen Years Later, Our "Leaders" Will Not Name The Enemy

In 2012 President Obama said "the future must not belong to those who insult the prophet of Islam."  Like it or not, until something changes, he has the power to define that future.  As always, his priorities have more to do with the accommodation and appeasement of those who are causing the problem, and less to do with America's interests.  Policy is being made by him, and by people who think like him.  We have put the nation's security and America's future in the hands of a man whose sympathies lie with those who would destroy us.  

The future has arrived, and the question is whether we will remain free men or whether we will be on our knees at the mercy of a global caliphate.  Leftists ignore this reality.  They elected, and re-elected, a man based on his skin color, and on vaporous claims about 'transformation'.  We are witnessing now the result of allowing political correctness to replace objective reality.  People who think like this don't deserve to live in a free society.  If we allow it to continue, none of us will.   

The left has fallen prey to their own deception.  Political correctness is a weapon devised to silence opposition to their utopian ideas, but their cowardice in the face of Islamic terrorism has brought them to apply it to their own thinking.  It offers them a way to rationalize their willingness to get on their knees in the face of the very thing that will put an end to their right to have any ideas about anything, utopian or not, if it does not conform to the ideology of Islam.  The absurdity of this appears to be lost on the left, but it is not lost on the people who have declared war on us.  "Peace at any cost" is a suicidal mirage.  In the face of an aggressive enemy, it guarantees an opposite reaction.
