Are we to respond to tyranny with pacifism?

This blog is partially a response to some things that Glenn Beck said recently, as well as a Martin Luther King Day message.

Dear Glenn,

We're facing the potential of gun confiscation in the near future, as the Marxists take advantage of the Sandy Hook massacre to punish the vast majority of good people for what an extremely tiny minority of bad people do, by removing even more of our human rights.

It's something known as tyranny. Tyrants have always done it. They would do things, like killing a whole village of people, because one of the villagers killed one of the tyrants. This was an age-old practice that even preceded firearms. Punishing the masses for what one person did. It's just a convenient excuse for tyranny.

On your recent Blaze TV Program, you suggested that if we resist such tyranny with force, it will "only make us look bad", and "we will lose", but we're already losing Glenn, and they've already made us look bad. They've smeared those of us who still support the Constitution and the RKBA - human Right to Keep And Bear Arms, as "violent", as "extremists" and potentially even "terrorists", for doing so!

In fact, on so many of your Programs you've pointed to history, which you've taught us so well, about how our founders had finally had enough and went to war over tea taxes, and gun bans and confiscations that the British did to them. But now you're suggesting using the tactics of Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr., so we don't "look bad and lose" and instead might "look good and win"?

How will that even be possible, when they have already demonized us, just for supporting our own Constitution and the absolute human rights that it recognizes? It looks to me like we're already losing, and will only lose more and more with pacifist tactics, because we've already been propagandized into being patsies, and "the bad guys", "who cling to their guns and religion"?

Frankly, I think you're just like the rest of us at this point. We're feeling a deep sense of distress and grief at the accelerated utter destruction of our Constitution, our nation, and our liberty and we just don't know what to do anymore. But do you really think that pacifism will save us? Really?

Because I don't think they're just going to ban all the guns at once and force everyone to turn them in. They can't possibly do that, given the numbers of them and the numbers of us. No, this has been a "boiling the frog" process for over a hundred years of Progressive Socialism now, as they play what people used to refer to as the "salami game" during the Soviet era. Back then, the Communists were slicing off one country at a time, and finally when they got to Vietnam, we said "No!", and went to war.

That's what they will do here too, Glenn, and they've already been doing it. First, the National Firearms Act of 1934, banning the unlicensed possession of select fire guns. Then the National Firearms Act of 1968, adding even more bans, gun controls and regulations on our "right to keep and bear arms that shall not be infringed".

Now, being they know that they don't have the political capital to do more gun bans and confiscations on a broad scale, it appears that they're focusing, in a Soviet fashion, on "the mentally ill", who are very convenient scapegoats, because who can defend the "mentally ill" and guns at the same time?

It used to be that if someone were "mentally ill" enough to be adjudicated by a court to be a "danger to themselves and/or others", they would be locked up for the protection of themselves or others. But then the Socialists came along, and like the Mariel Boat Lift that Castro inflicted on us years ago, they started unleashing the dangerous mentally ill back into society.

By doing that, they could then start regulating all of us, on the alleged grounds that some of us might be so dangerously mentally ill that none of us can be trusted with our human rights, out here in society. These are all just tactics, Glenn.

So now they want to remove the "adjudicated by a court" part, and of course the Progressive Republicrats were, at first, eager to jump on the band wagon and scapegoat those who might be seen as potential criminals at some future time, because they are considered "mentally ill", without even requiring the adjudication.

So now it appears that they've all set up a great big scapegoat witch hunt, that even some of the Republicrats are getting uncomfortable about, now that they've had some time to actually think it over and imagine the consequences.

For example, you go to your doctor, who you didn't realize was an extreme liberal ( possibly most of them are ) and they ask, seemingly very innocently, if you have any guns. You reply, "yes". Then further into the exam, they ask; "Oh, by the way, have you ever felt depressed about anything recently?". You might reply "yes" to that, being we all feel depressed once in awhile, right? Maybe your dog died and you felt pretty depressed.

And the next thing you know, you have police showing up at your door to confiscate your guns. Not everyone's guns, just yours, because your doctor reported you as being depressed and having guns, therefore possibly representing a danger to school children at some possible future time, even though you've never really ever been a danger to anyone, or even ever had such thoughts. But now you aren't allowed to own guns to defend yourself or your family anymore. Oh and by the way, neither can anyone who lives with you.

That's the way it will happen Glenn, not with mass confiscations, but with just yours. One salami slice of freedom at a time.

So they show up at grandma's house one day. Grandma is 62 years old, and her doctor has just ratted her out to the police because she owns guns and said she has been depressed once in awhile, because the nation is about to collapse from out of control spending and debt.

So the police show up, possibly with a SWAT team, and they knock on her door and when grandma answers, they push the door in and demand her guns. All without a warrant or any adjudication. 

You don't think this can happen? It happened in New Orleans after Katrina, where they went into homes and confiscated guns from good people, while there was looting going on. We've seen the video where they pushed that grandma to the ground in her own home, and took her gun. It was an outrageous act of tyranny. And who was punished for it? Did granny even ever get her gun back? I doubt it. Did the others who had their guns confiscated, ever get them back? I've heard, "no". Pure bald faced tyranny.

So in light of that, and our American history of resistance to blatant tyranny, and the fact that we've already been lied about and smeared by the massive Socialist media propaganda machine, so we "look bad" to begin with, are you seriously suggesting that we meet such tyranny with pacifism? Seriously Glenn?

Yes, most of us simply don't know what to do anymore, as we watch them disassemble our nation and our liberty, one small act at a time. The founders left us few clues about this, except for the fact that they would have appeared in mass, at the tyrants' offices, screaming in their faces.

"Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than live as slaves." -Sir Winston Churchill

And I'm not suggesting any one particular action to the people who read this, because it will always depend on the situation, and we should always respond to particular situations with the actions that are appropriate to those particular situations. Us women certainly know that "one size" does not fit all.

But the tyrants also know that they don't have to take all of our liberty at once, that most people will will be perfectly pacifistic about it, if they just take one little slice at a time. This has been their tactic for over 100 years now.

What will our tactics be? Well, most of us just don't know anymore, and that's very scary and doesn't bode well for our continued liberty. But we need to think long and carefully about it and then do what's appropriate to the situation at the time, and that may not always be a response of pacifism.

I know this, because the half of my familial ancestors who lived in Poland were just "relocated  for their own protection", by the Nazis, to places with signs over the gates that said things like "Work makes you free". And after the war, none of that side of our family existed anymore. And yet most American Jews in this country ( Leslie Marshall ) are pacifists, and won't own guns or learn to defend themselves and their families against all forms of tyrants, with them. How very shameful.

"Find out just what the people will submit to and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress." - Frederick Douglass, Aug. 4, 1857

So the question is, how much will the American people take from these present day tyrants?

Only you can answer that question.

I am tired of the tyranny and tired of the treason.  Of course they will not take all the guns at once...like you said, how could they?  They may think because they have grown out of proportion they can man handle the entire country, but I beg to differ with them.  Hunters alone are large enough in numbers to start and win a revolution.

As for the Mentally ill, of course they are using them as a ploy.  Obama always uses a less fortunate human being or situation to drive home his agenda.  I believe they will start rounding up all the homeless and mentally ill people first and put them in the FEMA camps around the country.  Then they will start confiscating the weaponry from every AMERICAN citizen.  The illegals will be used to build Obama's army.  We need to stop him before he gets to that point...he must be impeached!!!  As long as the GOP continues playing ball in Obama's court, we will never be able to impeach him.  Are we doomed?  Not as long as we have a few good American's who are willing to stand for the Constitution...it may involve a fight.

I did not watch or support the inauguration, because I didn't want to watch a dictator take over my America!

We have another 4 years of praying and fighting against this Marxist President!

But I'm glad to mention how hard woman have worked to find our spot on this earth, but did it in a fair and civil way!

Not like what is happen now with whatever this so called president is trying to achieve, get to the top anyway you can screw anyone and everyone to get there!

And take down the rich an well as the poor and middle class as well! By stealing from the rich and spoiling the poor temporarily by sucking them into his control and the middle by taking away their ability to run small business's thus cutting out employees to work! 

Pray hard folks!

This is good, and my first response is: Who in the Hell would go to a Liberal Doctor? Maybe, unknowingly, but, from the horrible destruction, of Obamacare on Doctors, and their livelihoods, I haven't seen a Doctor yet, who was not enraged over Obama's telling them their business. As for peaceful resistance, the" go along, get along" "play nice" crap isn't cutting it, as you stated Jane, we are losing, everyday, we lose more. If we look at History, as Glenn teaches a lot of History, we see the Jews in Germany. They did not resist, case rests. The Socialist-Marxist plan for America is the slow break down, as you have stated in your article,they invaded our schools, got control of Entertainment to rot Morality,broke up Family Values, but they did it gradually, because they were smart enough, to realize that Americans are so busy, so engulfed in their own lives, and were too lazy to "watch the store". When you ave a business, you must watch your employees or your till will be empty. The cow is out, and it is because we left the gate open. We now need to see how fast we can try to do something about this mess. If you concentrate on one issue, you have power, if you divide your forces, you weaken your ability to be strong. Unity is a must, at some point, we must all reach one conclusion, as for Obama burning hell, I will light the match!!!

Wasn't it Obummer who ordered the destruction of all those collectible M1A rifles from the Korean war?

If there's a hell, I hope he burns it in, for that among SO MANY other things!

As some expert said, it's not the quantity of EOs, it's the content - does it, or does it not, overreach or violate the Constitution. A really bad one is more than enough...

Any doctor who asks us about guns will be our "former doctor".

Comment by Jane Galt on January 21, 2013 at 11:28pm


I doubt Glenn could be forced to do anything.

Comment by MUG on January 21, 2013 at 10:10pm

Jane, Thanks!

By the way, it won't be just "depressed" that makes you unfit to bear arms.  If your extreme Liberal Dr knows you are a Conservative, if he asks if you've been depressed and you say no you feel great, he can turn you in for being Manic, or if you say you are always on an even keel he will turn you in for being out of touch and unable to see things the way they are.  It is a shell game with a pea under every shell he picks.

Nice article and the longer this is allowed to continue without the States and Congress putting a stop to it, the more likely there will be bloodshed. The constitution they are deficating on was fought for and many have died since defending it so to think that Americans will just lay down and accept Socialism and Tyranny is ludicrous. The democrats are feeding the masses with your hard earned money so they can attend the inaugural Balls and still be able to buy minutes for their Obama phone and spend their foodstamp money for booze and a new caar. While we worry about how to feed our families and pay the outragious new taxes coming at us soon.Sooner or later the penilum will swing for the final time and we will not be able to stay afloat then there will be nobody elses money to spend.
