If Only Our Friends on the Left Were Intellectually Honest and Constistent…

They might care to join us in getting this story out to the public and condemning the government for its part in what happened:

Former Marine Detained for ‘Ominous’ Facebook Posts Speaks Out for the First Time: ‘It Made Me Scared for My Country’

“The truth is very powerful and it has the ability to cut, and the truth is not always nice, sometimes it can be very specific,” he said of the statement.

I urge you to take a few minutes to read this story.  This is just one case of some 20,000 that happen annually — just in the State of Virginia.  I happen to believe it is also the harbinger of things to come.

  1. Black, although I am skeptical of the motives behind the detainment of this soldier for “mental reasons”,it is difficult to opine intelligently without seeing the facebook posts in question.

    I honestly wish “The Blaze” could have provided more information prior to publishing the story.

    • Agreed, but, unlike the “Kill Romney” page, FB pulled his page down before this story broke. All we have now are the govt.’s assertions of what he said and the Marines admission to the same.

      As to the motives: I think a lot of people miss a salient point with my posts. How often do I actually make an accusation or assert my belief that something nefarious is going on as opposed to drawing attention to things that are reported to be happening in our society today and comparing them to events and situations in the past?

      If people were to be as fair with me as they demand others be with them, they might notice that I do not actually subscribe to many of the “conspiracy theories” that have been assigned to me. I just point out that there are an awful lot of odd things happening that defy the explanations that we’re fed — and which too many readily accept.

      THAT HAVING BEEN SAID:

      I think you might be aware of how the psychiatry has been used in the past to “contain” political opponents. I would not be surprised to learn that this is a precursor to resurrecting these practices as the laws have never been taken off the federal books.

  2. Joe, I think you’re wrong about FB–unless they put it back up. I just spent a few minutes reading his Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/brandon.raub?sk=wall

    He seems like a bit of a nut, but I see nothing there warranting detention–pretty typical “truther” stuff. So count me as one “friend on the left” who is at least tentatively critical of whatever gov’t. agency was involved.

    • Thanks for the info. To be honest, I didn’t try to go to the page. When I read that the guy admitted to posting what the govt. accused him of saying, honestly, I didn’t see any reason after that. If the govt. says you did A, and you say yes, I did A, then why bother — especially when A doesn’t warrant the actions taken.

      So, it looks like we agree that this should be viewed with skepticism toward the govt.–that’s all, nothing more. In which case, I say THANK YOU, as one citizen to another.

      • You’re welcome–and you’ll see that I went through and pasted some of the comments, before I saw your response. And regardless of this particular case, one of the things that scares me most about Obama is the rights he has declared that he and government have (including the right to kill American citizens).

  3. OK, some of it is much, much weirder than I saw on first glance–though especially since I don’t know more about the government’s actions, I’ll just post this to let others decide how weird is too weird. https://www.facebook.com/brandon.raub?sk=wall

    And just in case others can’t access his page, these seem to be some of the oddest or most inflammatory comments (though he regularly blames 9/11 on the government):
    “Cuz pills or no pills I’m still a battle axe-warrior.”
    “Sharpen up my axe; I’m here to sever heads.”
    “The Revolution will come for me. Men will be at my door soon to pick me up to lead it. ;)”
    “This is the picture of the Pentagon, right after our leaders shot a missle into it.” [photo included]
    “Do you know why the American people will win the civil war that is coming? Because we are Americans.”
    “The people responsible for posioning the America people from the sky will be held accountable. And there is going to be justice.”
    “This is a picture of the government dropping Barium and Aluminum Powder from the air on American Citizens.”
    “You deserve to kow the truth. There has been an overwhelming amount of evil enacted and planned against you, your children, and your countrymen. It is great in scope. Your government evil. It is as simple as that. And the calvary is coming.”
    “I know many of you think I’m going crazy, and are wondering just why I have been posting the things I have been posting. I don’t have the energy to explain. Just know that a new beginning is coming.”
    “The time for choosing has come. Will you continue to ignore the obvious lie of 911 or will you stand and fight for your people?”
    “I’m starting the Revolution. I’m done waiting.”
    “This is the part where I tell the Federal Government to go fuck itself. This is the part where I tell Generals, training our young men to fight Americans, I am coming for you. The Veterans will be with me.”
    “Do you know that world leaders sacrifice children in robes?”
    “I am standing against a great evil. I will do it all by myself if I have to.”
    “If you are my friend, you deserve to know the truth. This world is secretly run by a shadow organization of people who among other things enjoy raping children. Some of leaders were involved with the bombing of the twin towers. It was a sacrifice and a complete inside job. Also the Bush’s are very sick twisted problems. I believe they have a secret Castle in Colorado where they have been raping and sacrificing children for many years. Think I’m crazy? Think again.”
    “Fuck the New World Order. I’m bringing it down.”
    “I am starting a revolution. The goverment has gone to far.”
