New York Democrat Carolyn Maloney claims that her office has received death threats as a result of her anti-constitutional activities:
Rep. Carolyn Maloney said she received death threats Tuesday at her upper East Side office warning her not to move forward with gun control legislation.
“They said they were going to kill me,” said Maloney. The Democratic congresswoman was so disturbed by the three menacing phone calls — which came about an hour apart — that she skipped a dinner Tuesday night of the Friends of the Upper East Side Historic Districts, where she was supposed to present an award. “I couldn’t go. Who knows what could happen?”
While I think the odds of an assassination over gun control policy is generally infinitesimal (the last Congressional Representative killed in office was Leo Ryan, gunned down by Jim Jones’ cultists in
Africa South America in 1978), the current political climate suggests that their is the remote but emerging possibility of such an action.
- Politicians up to and including the President and his Executive branch officials are waging a war of disinformation and outright lies to undermine the rights of the American people.
- The mainstream media is actively colluding with these politicians to wage a war of disinformation and outright lies regarding the role of firearms in crimes, firearms and firearms laws, and slandering the nearly 100 million Americans that are part of the firearms-owning community.
- This collusion between these groups (which I’ve argued is one incestuous group, dubbed the “polimedia”) have led to the passage of the most draconian gun laws in history in the states of New York, Connecticut, Maryland, and Colorado. The polimedia intends to spread to other states and the entire Republic if at all possible. This is causing considerable economic harm, and dramatically restricting Constitutional and God-given liberties, creating a motive.
The Alinsky tactics celebrated and used by the radical Leftists from the President down to the lowliest media stenographer are excellent at attacking law-abiding organizations and groups, but they have a fatal flaw; Alinsky tactics only work when they are used by the corrupt to target the equally corrupt. These vicious Marxist political tactics may run the distinct risk of triggering an unpredictable, potentially violent response when applied against the citizenry itself.
It is not easy to rouse the American public to take up arms against government, and that is as it should be. The overwhelming majority of American citizens are very much like the Colonial citizens of the 1760s and 1770s; they wish merely to be left alone to live their lives without government interference.
We have no desire to initiate conflict, and will avoid it if at all possible. We have always been slow to anger.
Even on April 19, 1775, it took the British massacre of Parker’s dispersing militia on Lexington Green and the British assault on the Acton Minutemen at Concord’s North Bridge and the British forming up to launch a third unprovoked attack on Colonials following the column before the citizenry committed to taking the fight to General Gage’s gun-grabbing forces, triggering the bloody war that led to our Republic.
I personally do not expect the next revolution to break out in this nation until the government itself once again launches an unprovoked attack on the liberty of the People, but many thousands of Americans feel that the actions of this Administration, this polimedia, are already waging that war against the citizenry.
It only takes the breaching of the peace by either side—a present-day Waco, or perhaps a single assassination of an anti-Liberty politician or media figure—to let slip a cascade of actions and retaliations that will lead to a slide into anarchy.
We’ve read enough of war to know that we do not want our children to experience it firsthand for themselves.
But we must face the fact that we live in a time and place where there are good people who are calculating whether war, while horrible, is the worst of things.
We live in a time where good people are weighing the loss of their own lives against the loss of freedoms their children and grandchildren may experience if our generation fail to stop a creeping tyranny.
In such an environment, thousands of Americans may have already done the bloody calculus, and have judged that the motive of liberty is sufficient, and that they will act to put a petty tyrant in the grave if they have the means and the opportunity. Opportunity, of course, is only limited by imagination and determination.
So yes, Carolyn Maloney, “who knows what may happen?”
I continue to hope and pray that the seemingly inexorable march towards a rending of this Republic can be resolved peaceably, but I am a student of history, and know that once the citizenry has judged the government is a threat and not a servant, then that government will fall, or will continue down the path of becoming monsters, devouring the very people they are sworn to protect.
Si vis pacem, para bellum.
