Communist Revolution: I Never Thought It Would Come to This

Since I was about 12, I have known that the communist left was dedicated to replacing America with a collectivist tyranny.  I remember Khrushchev pounding his shoe on the table at the United Nations and threatening "We will bury you!"  I became a news junkie at 13, scouring the San Jose Mercury News each morning for the latest Cold War developments.

I never could understand it.  How could anyone believe in a totalitarian tyranny that destroys freedom, starves millions and executes millions more?  Apparently, a lot of people do -- or at least, believe in their version of it.  The long march through the institutions was completed some time ago, and both academia and media have a near monopoly on the transmission of biased news, cultural demolition and the ability to affect public attitudes.  The "closing of the American mind" is just about complete.  Moonbattery blog has an article today called "Brainwashing Works."  The author, Dave Blount, points to a sign in NYC's Penn Station where a graffiti artist has penned "Kill All Republicans!"  This sentiment is not an isolated occurrence. reports daily the most vile bile from the left, the unhinged hatred, the desire for violence against Republicans and conservatives.   The Democrat Media Complex has created a vast swath of human botnets, which can be set off in mass to launch denial-of-liberty attacks on any and all who oppose the New Progressive Order.  Like computer botnets, the human variety is programmed and programmable and act in concert, unhindered by scruples or actual thought.

Lately swarms of human maggots on Twitter have tweeted their joy at the death of General Norman Schwarzkopf yesterday, expressing hope that he died painfully and is now burning in Hell.  They have said similar things about former President George H.W. Bush, who is in the hospital with a serious illness, hoping that he dies "in agony."  I do not recognize this leftist human scum as fellow citizens, but as traitors, agents of hostile foreign powers and ideologies.  With the election of one of their own to the presidency, they are now emboldened to finish off the Republic, and as Blount notes at Moonbattery, are now in a rush to disarm us.  A generation ago, Diane Feinstein's proposed gun control bill (to photograph and fingerprint all gun owners) would have resulted in widespread outcry and alarm.  A day or so after its announcement, there is hardly a peep from the populace.

With all the Leftist shit that I see going on before my very eyes, I have to say that I'm feeling more and more pessimistic. And powerless too!

We are living in an ugly alternate universe of inversionism. I noted yesterday or the day before at the web site of the WaPo so many liberals rejoicing over the death of Stormin' Norman and cheering for the death of George H.W. Bush. What the HELL is wrong with these people?

More and more, I feel as if I should seek out a rock and live under it.

AOW, the treasonous left has never been stronger or more powerful in the United States than it is today. I noticed on Legal Insurrection blog that almost all available gun ammunition has been purchased by the public since Commie Obammie was re-elected. People seem to know where this is headed.

I arrived in the U. S. in 1962, a child-exile from Communist Cuba. I will be eternally grateful to the American people for having offered my parents and me a place of refuge and the opportunity to make a place for ourselves in this country (allowing us to rise from absolute poverty to comfortable middle class status in the space of a few years . . . albeit with a great deal of hard work and disciplined husbandry). Because of the great love that I bear this, my adopted country, I am made sad beyond my powers of expression, by the apparent willingness of so many of its people to surrender the ancient liberties recognized by the U. S. Constitution, of which the right to keep and bear arms is one of the most important. (Note that only the fundamental rights of conscience and its expression come before it in the Bill of Rights.)

One of the first steps historically taken by would-be totalitarians is to disarm the population to be ruled: the Bolsheviks did this in Russia, the Nazis in Germany and the occupied countries, the Maoists in China, the Castroites in Cuba, and on and on. In some cases, as in Cuba, weapons of limited military value, like single- or double-barrelled shotguns, are allowed--as a privilege and under permit--to be possessed by the well-behaved . . . though permitted ammunition is generally limited to birdshot. (Of course, especial rules apply to members of the _nomenklatura_, e.g., many of the Soviet big-wigs were avid big-game hunters.)

I fear that our Leftist ruling class--cynically and heartlessly following Rahm Emanuel's dictum never to let a serious crisis go to waste--are exploiting the Newtown, Connecticut, tragedy to take the first (of many to come) steps intended to disarm the American people. Note that they are artfully "shaping the narrative" in terms of limiting the possession of "unneeded" military-type weapons, like semiautomatic rifles and pistols, while grandly and generously permitting us to retain what they deem to be "acceptable" weapons for self-defense and hunting . . . though you can bet the farm that this latter category of acceptable weapons will be progressively whittled down, until, if we are lucky and our overlords are generous, we shall be allowed to retain single- or double-barrelled shotguns with a "reasonable" number of birdshot cartridges.

The right to keep and bear arms has next to nothing to do with hunting or self-defense (though these are admittedly useful incidental consequences), and everything to do with the people's ability, when all peaceful political action fails, to defend their ancient liberties. A tyrant can never feel secure when he tries to impress his will on an armed populace, which is why the regimes to which I alluded above moved early and vigorously to disarm their populaces. If we let the the crowd now in power do the same to us, our future as a free people shall be compromised for a long time to come. We must fight them, else we shall deserve the long, dark night of tyranny that shall eventually descend on us.

Wow, fantastic comment, Carlos. Thanks so much for writing.

President George Washington:
• Government is not reason. It is not eloquence. It is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.
• Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance. They are the teeth of the people's liberty.

Well said and quoted, Andrew.
