Romania on the Hudson?
That is obviously what they’re afraid of. Back on December 25, 1989 the Romanian people gave themselves a nice national Christmas present when, after a brief show trial, Nicolae Ceauçescu and his wife Elena were executed by firing squad in the courtyard of the courthouse in which they had been tried. Not content to merely shoot the dictator and his wife the men of the firing squad emptied the standard capacity 30 round magazines of their AK-47’s into them. There’s no kill like overkill when you have to be absolutely sure, absent a wooden stake. So much for “I ♥ my Leader.” It has come to my attention that mention of Romania makes the members of the Communist Revolutionary Junta in DC nervous, for some strange reason.
Good to know, say I.
Perhaps it is a good thing that the American People did not rise up as Alexander Hamilton recommended in Federalist 28:
If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no resource left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defence, which is paramount to all positive forms of government; and which, against the usurpations of the national rulers, may be exerted with infinitely better prospect of success, than against those of the rulers of an individual State. In a single State, if the persons entrusted with supreme power became usurpers, the different parcels, subdivisions or districts, of which it consists, having no distinct government in each, can take no regular measures for defence. [… ] The citizens must rush tumultuously to arms, without concert, without system, without resource; except in their courage and despair
The November 3, 2020 electoral coup would certainly have propelled our Founding Fathers into tumultuous action, but not us. Why is that? Why are we so restrained?
First, we are wealthy and complacent, having largely forgotten why and how we got here. The wealthy are always loath to put their material well being at risk. Second, Normalcy Bias, the sense that everything will continue as it has in the past despite an emerging crisis. Even though we knew that there has been a certain amount of voter fraud we accepted is so long as it was kept down to a low roar. It is difficult to believe that an American election could be so blatantly
fortified stolen. Consequently Americans hesitated in the face of a new circumstance and adopted a wait and see attitude. Despite the restraint the Commie-crats know themselves to be in mortal peril. They are terrified that at any time Americans might “rush tumultuously to arms” and redress the situation.
Bear in mind that they have seeded hundreds, likely thousands of violent, trained terrorists in gangs all over the country. They have no qualms about using violence in pursuit of power. This is kind of what defines them. The 2nd Amendment scares the ever loving crap out of them because they can’t imagine that their political enemies (that’s us) would be any less blood thirsty than they are. That’s why they have been trying to disarm us all these years. That’s why, as predicted, one or more mass shootings would be programmed into the mix to “justify” another gun grab”:
Your Irascible Correspondent will venture a turn at playing the prophet for you. It will not be enough for them that all the media outlets will be echoing the same drumbeat refrain about surging gun violence. No, they will stage at least one horrific mass shooting in which a person not of color will be the star. It will be another Sandy Hook, Pulse Nightclub, Stoneman Douglas High School or Las Vegas type event. Do not doubt that they can and will manipulate some poor schlub on psychiatric medication, the kind that has the potential to turn the sufferer into a rage monster, to go over the edge and give them the propaganda coup they need.
How convenient, mass shootings on demand, just in time to be grist for their propaganda mill. Betcha there will be more. ‘Course, it won’t be a patch on what they want to do to us. Mass murder has ever been their calling card. Remember the Branch Davidians at Waco, and the folks at Ruby Ridge? Waco was so bad that the FBI actually bulldozed the site before any investigation could be done. Thank you, Janet Reno! Not, mind you, that we lack examples of officers of the law blowing citizens away above and beyond the call of duty.
Generally your Irascible Correspondent supports Law Enforcement Officers, but recently we’ve seen a lot of them not doing their jobs, as when Antifa and BLM riot and tear up local communities and the cops just stand around and watch, if they show up at all, or catch and release the perps the next morning. Increasingly the ordinary citizen is on his own. Worse, we have seen the police and the FBI arrest and charge citizens who were attempting to defend themselves against the attacks of the Communist Revolution’s paid terrorists.
Our new self proclaimed overlords are totalitarians. This means that they want to control every aspect of our lives to benefit themselves. We are cattle to them, nothing more. I don’t so much refer here to the operatives of the Parties, as to those behind the scenes who pay the politicians and lobbyists to set us up. The politicians and the Deep State minions know that they are really vulnerable, they are the interface between the great mass of We the People and the hyper rich who are their puppet masters. When the American people decide to exercise the Ceauçescu Option it is the politicians who will be on the receiving end, something never very far from their minds.
As long as the American people do not yet revolt, the likelihood that they will do so diminishes; normalcy bias again. Bear in mind that the Romanians had endured over 30 years of Nicolae and Elena, and had suffered greatly during that time. It is likely that as our national suffering increases that we, too, will reach such a breaking point. Clearly we are not there yet. It would be better sooner than later.
It is the nature of these devils to destroy everything they touch, therefore they will end by driving even the most peaceful, law abiding Americans to revolt. It is their foolish, nay, demonic dream that by disarming us they can maintain their power and wealth in perpetuity. Disarmament would indeed put off the day or reckoning, but the day will inevitably come. Best that the day when Americans spill American’s blood in the service of freedom never come again. The first time was bad enough.
News now that the National Rifle Association has agreed to support Red Flag laws, the disarmament of “dangerous” people and enter and to enter and confiscate citizen’s guns without a warrant. Humans are the top predators on the planet, we are all, from least to greatest dangerous, by definition. Allowing ourselves to be disarmed would indeed be an even greater disaster than what we have so far endured, would deepen and extend it; we must not allow it. As the Zombie in Chief and the Demon-crats push all kinds of gun control initiatives it is going to be necessary to exercise civil disobedience. What is needed is a counter revolution. Let it begin now.
