BarackObama.com wants you to share your gun violence story.
There are millions of these stories to tell… at least 262 million murdered by democide in the 20th Century alone. If you aren’t familiar with the term, democide is “the murder of any person or people by a government, including genocide, politicide and mass murder.”
There are as many ways to kill citizens as there are tyrants with imaginations, but all democides have one thing in common: for them to occur, the victims have to be disarmed first. A properly-armed citizenry cannot be overpowered, and democide has never occurred when the oppressed citizens had the arms to stop the slaughter. Democides have occurred from before written history, and they continue today. And yes, they’ve happened here and almost certainly will again if the citizenry disarms.
I’ve chosen two examples to send in to BarackObama.com.
The first is this April 16, 1946 photo of the Buchenwald concentration camp in Weimar, Germany. In the top left of the photo are American soldiers, mostly military police by the looks of them. They’ve dragged the citizens of Weimar who lived around the camp to look at some of the results of their handiwork. Like today’s Democrats, they’d fallen for a pretty dictator who was elected to office on a web of lies, and turned a blind eye as he built his cadre of homeland security forces into his own private army. They engaged in willing self-deception as they gave away their freedoms to the state, never allowing themselves to see what was happening in plain sight in front of them. When Buchenwald was captured, These “innocent citizens” who claimed they have done no wrong were rounded up and forced to see first hand what they had done. No dictator rises alone.
They were responsible.
No one knows for sure the identities of the dead piled up on the cart like such much cordwood.
Almost certainly some were Jews and some where Jehovah’s Witnesses. Some were POWs. Some were Poles or other “lesser” peoples. Freemasons, homosexuals, and other undesirables were among the 56,000 who were worked to death in Buchenwald.
The second submission I’m going to make is Larry Grathwohl’s testimony about his time inside the Weather Underground.
The Weather Underground was a 1960s-early 1980s left-wing terrorist group. Among their leadership were Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn. They hoped that once they’d successfully overthrown the American government, that they’d be able to “reeducate” most of the nation to adopt their radical leftist philosophy (which is the reason both Ayers and Dorhn and several other leaders of the group eventually became deeply involved in public education to this day). They figured, however, that no matter how hard they tried, that there would be bitter Americans clinging to their capitalism and their religion no matter how much indoctrination they were exposed to. These unfortunate souls—which they guesstimated would among to about 10% of the population—would be sent to “camps” where they would be exterminated.
These are the plans for massacring Americans that Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn never refuted or renounced. These are the plans made by the people that were Barack Obama’s mentors, who worked with him, and who kicked off his political career in the socialist New Party.
These are the people who inspired the man determined to disarm Americans of the very arms most useful in resisting the sort of tyranny his mentors hope to impose upon us.
The earth is littered with the mass graves of those who disarmed “for public safety,” and “for the children” with “common sense” laws and “reasonable restrictions.”
Gun violence can be bad, of that there is no doubt. The violence that occurs when citizens no longer have the arms to counter a federal leviathan, however, is far, far worse.
Do not ever surrender your arms. When you surrender your arms, you are not longer a citizen with rights. You become a subject with wants, and the government will give and take from you as they see fit.
Arm yourself. Train to fight. Never fire the first shot, but if they want war, let it be with our generation, so our children breath free.
