In his article, author Paul Howe asserts that:
I don’t believe that service members would go back into the communities that raised them and conduct raids on good Americans in violation of the constitution.
With all due respect, I think that Mr. Howe needs to reconsider how America's military is enthusiastically recruiting from amongst its immigrant population. This, in addition to pursuing new "diversity" guidelines, only ups the chances that soldiers who feel almost zero sense of community or shared identity with White Christian America—still this nation's majority population along with being its most Conservative and heavily armed—will be available to confiscate publicly held weapons.
Taken in combination with the DHS purchase of some two billion rounds of ammunition including hollow-point styles, this is indicative of some serious preparation by America’s government for a war against its own citizens. With an adult population of some 239 million people in this nation, this represents an easy ten rounds per each individual of fighting age, regardless of gender.
Remember, these forces would have to come from a military base that is surrounded and supported by American communities.
Again, Howe is being unduly optimistic. You can bet the farm that weapon confiscation squads would not be sent “back into the communities that raised them”. The military knows well enough to send troops from an entirely different region to do this sort of dirty work specifically in order to avoid such confused loyalties. What compunction would a heavily armed regiment of Hispanic immigrants or Detroit thug-recruits feel about disarming a small town of rural, Middle American Whites? Face the question squarely.
Civilians would simply cease to support the bases and they would fold in a short time.
As it stands, most urban supermarkets usually have less than 48 hours worth of inventory in-house and estimates are that a majority of American homes have less than two weeks of food stockpiled. It may well turn out that military bases are far better furnished, not to mention how they have a supply chain that is much less vulnerable to interruption. Simply blockading a community’s access roads and halting all inbound deliveries of food or other consumables could drastically alter the situation. Turning off the water supply would have a similar effect.
The Federal government is not large enough or talented enough to seize guns.
Finally some realism seeps in around the edges. It still warrants recalling just how much effort America’s government is making to muzzle the Internet. With emails blocked and cell towers jammed, just how quickly would word of confiscations spread? It casts some reasonable doubt on how this author supposes that, “After the first few raids, the word would get out and Americans would start to fight back.” Equally doubtful is the extent to which local law enforcement would be employed to confiscate weapons. Too many community ties makes their participation a dubious proposition. A sole mitigating factor is the extent to which metropolitan—and, to a lesser degree, suburban or rural—police forces have become heavily “militarized” in recent years.
Beginning with SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics) teams in the late 1960s, more recently there has been an unprecedented increase in the overall firepower and presence of military grade weapons or armor fielded by police departments all across America. One single watershed event which drove this trend was the 1997 North Hollywood Shootout. I refer you to a very well written article—Escalation: Police Weapon Evolution as a function of Demographics—that documents an inexorable upward migration of American police departments from the once-standard S&W .38 Special to more powerful .45 caliber weapons and eventually a shift from revolvers to over to semi-automatics such as the now-ubiquitous Glock 9mm. Readers are also requested to pay close attention to the demographic aspect in the linked article as this will dominate the next several paragraphs.
Americans are better armed and trained today than at any time in our nation’s history. Think about what would happen if just our nation’s veterans stood up. People have been buying more guns and ammunition in the past five years than any time in my life. The guns and ammunition are out there along with the talent to use them.
This is more to the point but for it to matter, America would already have had to effectively spiral into a full-blown civil war. Such an outcome must be avoided at all costs as it places at risk our national security and sovereignty in general. In such a full-blown domestic conflict so-called “hit and run” insurgent actions could prove very effective against less agile military units. However, recent advances in drone surveillance technology pose a serious counterbalancing measure to this otherwise long-accepted wisdom. Again, the willingness of military personnel plays a pivotal role in such a scenario.
For a much more concise and well-thought-out analysis of what a major civil war would entail, please read “When The Music Stops – How America’s Cities May Explode In Violence” by Matt Bracken. His article is a “must-read” and Bracken’s, “A Sample Sniper Ambush Scenario” that involves skirmishing pickup trucks is a far more likely and useful projection than anything offered up by Paul Howe.
In every law enforcement, government and military agency or branch, there are a small number of Kool-Aid drinkers who would blindly follow orders.
To be sure, there is a definite component of government apparatchiks who are all too willing to just “follow orders”. Herein lies one of the worst and most hidden dangers of Big Government. The past few decades have seen a dramatic growth in federal hiring, with DHS and TSA being some prime examples. A huge percentage of “job creation” in response to the recent economic downturn has been through federal hiring. Few, if any, are willing to admit that this merely adds more tax consumers to the rolls even as actual tax producers continue to shrink in number. With this surge of people who are dependent upon Washington DC for their paychecks there comes an increased number of those aforementioned Kool-Aid drinkers.
Be that as it may, of far greater danger are the Liberal Kool-Aid drinking voters who have not only reelected 0bama but are now poised to assist in passing legislation that might lead to an overturning of the Second Amendment. Just how ready are these nanny-state addicts to do such a thing? Here is one of the starkest measures of how bad things really are when it comes to what Liberals will stoop to in order to imperil the rights of gun owners. Just last Friday, Liberal tripe volcano, The Huffington Post, ran this screecher headline:
Why is this of such notice? Here’s why. In order for them to compile this supposedly shocking statistic, these bleeding-heart wankers finally had to include killings that they otherwise absolutely refuse to provide coverage of on any other occasion. Rest assured that the article makes only passing mention of “drive-bys” but never, never, NEVER will they admit the fact that a huge majority of these gun-related killings are committed by minorities.
Liberal media has adamantly refused to publicize the epidemic of violence by minorities against other minorities but especially the unstated race war committed by minorities against Whites. Little to no coverage is provided regarding the following Black on White hate crimes. In equal measure, under Eric “my people” Holder, the Department of Justice has resolutely refused to prosecute even the most blatant “hate crimes” by Blacks against Whites. Here are some examples regarding this “white-out” of media coverage regarding Black hate crimes:
Knockout King: Committed almost entirely against Whites, this “game” typically plays out with a pack of young Black thugs selecting a victim at random, often elderly or frail, and then goading one of their members into a totally unprovoked assault. The attack usually involves a single, roundhouse blow directed full-force at the left temporal lobe—as most attackers are right-handed. Attacks from behind in such cases are not uncommon either.
The injuries sustained often involve immediate loss of consciousness, fracturing of the eye socket or skull, brain damage including aphasia (i.e., loss of speech or literacy) and even permanently impaired vision or a lost eye. There is also collateral injury that results from an uncontrolled collapse onto hard surfaces such as a sidewalk or restaurant floor.
Please take note of the way that the linked article about “knockout king” makes absolutely no mention of race despite how this type of criminal assault is perpetrated almost exclusively by Blacks. For a much more honest article dealing with this phenomenon please read, “The Knockout Game: Racial Violence and the Conspicuous Silence of the Media".
How many readers have ever heard of the “Beat Whitey Night” which took place at the 2010 Iowa State Fair? Again, a total media white-out.
It’s also likely that very few people reading this have ever heard of “Polar Bear Hunting”. Again, a total media white-out.
Similar to “Beat Whitey Night”, there has also been an uptick in so-called “Flash Mobs"—more appropriately called "mahogany mobs"—of rampaging inner city Black youths that assault Whites and, just as frequently, engage in organized looting. Yet another media white-out.
This is the proverbial fly-in-the-ointment, the trout in the milk pail—hard to ignore and demanding of an explanation—which America’s overwhelmingly Liberal-controlled media steadfastly refuses to account for. As an example: Black males between the ages of 16 and 40 probably represent less than two percent of the American population. Yet, despite having already incarcerated nearly one million of such individuals, this age group of Black males is responsible for some 53% of all violent crime—assaults, rapes and murders—in the entire United States.
I encourage you to go to the FBI website and review tables 43, 49, 55, 61 & 67. The numbers speak for themselves.
The point of this being—not just the issue of hate crimes being committed by Blacks—but the fact that the Liberal media refuses to demonstrate any journalistic integrity in reporting on the simple fact that “diversity” and “multiculturalism” not only do not work but, nonetheless, are being imposed upon a majority White America that is just as often the victim of violence at the hands of this “protected species”.
Recall that the Aurora, Colorado theater shooting was given front page and prime time coverage for what seemed like weeks. Now, consider this, each weekend in Detroit, Chicago, Atlanta, Baltimore, Birmingham and other minority-run cities, just as often there are an equal, if not greater, number of killings which go entirely unreported.
Why is this? Again, it is because if the Liberal media honestly and accurately reported the crime statistics of Black and minority criminals, there wouldn’t be any time to make Whites look as bad as these news outlets try so hard to do. Look at how desperately the media attempted to paint George Zimmerman as a Caucasian until irrefutable proof was provided that he was of Hispanic ancestry. Then the New York Times bent over backwards to invent the term “White-Hispanic” in order to keep fanning every last flame of potential race riots over the justifiable homicide of his youthful assailant, Trayvon Martin. Please recall how the media portrayed this nearly adult thug as an angelic thirteen year-old while it insisted upon showing George Zimmerman in his jail jumpsuit.
Few people are aware of how NBC television news edited Zimmerman's cell phone conversation with a police dispatcher. The altered version of his 911 call made it sound as if Zimmerman said, "this guy looks like he's up to no good, he looks black." This made it seem as if Zimmerman had some sort of prejudice rather than simply responding to the dispatcher's interrogation. In reality, the exchange went as follows:
Zimmerman: Hey we've had some break-ins in my neighborhood, and there's a real suspicious guy, uh, it's Retreat View Circle, um, the best address I can give you is 111 Retreat View Circle. This guy looks like he's up to no good, or he's on drugs or something. It's raining and he's just walking around, looking about.
Dispatcher: OK, and this guy is he white, black, or hispanic?
Zimmerman: He looks black.
NBC even went to the effort of intentionally using electronic audio "smoothing" to remove any noticeable "glitches" due to shifts in wind direction or speed and changes in microphone distance. For this actionable offense, Zimmerman is rightfully suing NBC.
Most media outlets also refuse to mention the race of a perpetrator, even if the individual remains at large. A glaring exception to this general rule is if the uncaught perpetrator happens to be White. Then his skin color is trumpeted high and low. Otherwise, this typical silence is a willful endangerment of the public but it goes on without a peep of protest from law enforcement or citizen's groups.
Mass media is not the only responsible party when it comes to this sort of malicious distortion of racially based crime statistics. When compiling crime victim profiles, the FBI segregates Whites and Hispanics into separate categories. However, when identifying perpetrators by race, the FBI combines White and Hispanics into a single category. The only identifiable reason for such malfeasance is to make Whites look as though they are responsible for much more crime than they really are. Incidentally, please don't hold your breath waiting for a big media exposé of this intentional misreporting of criminal statistics.
The point of making all these racial and statistical distinctions centers upon exactly what social elements ordinary, law-abiding Americans would be left vulnerable to if they were disarmed. As if the already charged issue of gun ownership was not Politically Incorrect, imagine just how unsuitable any discussion of racial crime statistics is.
Once more, why is that?
Here we veer back towards the theme of Paul Howe’s original article but not entirely. Both political parties are waging an undeclared war against Conservative White Christian Middle Class America. This one population segment represents the greatest threat to continuance of our currently dysfunctional bipartisan system. It is this core of relatively well-educated voters who are rapidly shedding their allegiance to any traditional party lines and, just as often, actively pursuing the formation of alternate political parties.
As the distracting power of panem et circenses wanes and people migrate away from vacuous network entertainment like American Idol over to the Internet for accurate reporting of facts, the government is in an almost panic state about maintaining the political status quo. For several years now, it has been quite apparent that only by fomenting (relatively) horizontal class warfare can our politicians—and the financial elite that puppet them about—forestall the one thing that they fear above all else; vertical class warfare.
To do this, new policies have been put in place that see inner city housing projects demolished in favor of what is called Scattered Site Housing. This involves taking urban criminal elements and settling them into once crime-free suburban neighborhoods via Section Eight vouchers. The results are devastating. There is an immediate decline in property values, the quality of education plummets as schools are turned into minimum-security detention centers for ineducable juvenile delinquents and property crimes such as theft and vandalism skyrocket.
If there aren’t any other minority thugs around to do the job of destroying the harmony and cultural cohesion of what were once relatively racially homogenous suburbs, the government now imports illiterate Muslim Somali goat herders for that task. Our politicians crow about “vibrant diversity” as they inflict the absolute worst of Third World human dregs upon once stable communities. Soaring crime and rape statistics mean nothing in comparison to attaining their much-vaunted goal of multiculturalism.
In the end I believe that guns are the glue that hold our country together. Guns keep the government in check and the individual American safe and free. Remove guns and the government will no longer be controlled by the people. The government will control the people.
Again, it is a binary equation. Either the government serves the people—which is as it should be—or the people serve their government in what, all too often, descends into unbridled tyranny.
Despite the cogency of Paul Howe’s article, he misses the critical point of why the effort at disarming America is taking place. Of even more importance is the question cui bono? Who benefits? As with all illegal activities that are not crimes of passion, follow the money. And there certainly is lots of money to be made by politicians and Big Government in providing ever-expanding nanny state services to a public that can no longer defend itself nor access the truth.
This is the real goal, an infantilizing of America so that it can be ruled just like any other despotic Third World hellhole and without any challenge to authority. Only a well-armed public can turn back the tide of feral thugs that are being let loose in our midst and only a well-informed electorate can finally vote out our parasitic incumbent political hierarchy that throws us to these criminal wolves. We must make every effort to take back our government through the electoral process. With equal dedication we must ensure that the criminal class encounters deadly force whenever they engage in predatory behavior.
There remains a final and very disturbing possibility that America’s White Middle Class may have to voluntarily accelerate a complete breakdown of the federal government in order to rid itself of its vampire elite. However, that is the subject for another lengthy article.
