I saw RNL reader Trappedinca’s comment about the phrase Molon labe in the comments section of one of my other posts and had to look it up. That’s when I realized it is another version of the same revolutionary spirit embodied in our founders’ battle cry, come and take it! Then I realized the issue of gun control might be the issue Obama and his handlers have been trying to find for a long time. I have written before that I believe the Left is trying to create a violent backlash from the Right to justify their use of force to finally repress and subjugate all of society. The key to their plan is finding (or manufacturing) a situation that will not only allow them some justification to use violence against American citizens, but finding such a situation that will cause many people to actually call for government action against their fellow citizens. This is the same pattern Lenin, Woodrow Wilson, Hitler, Mussolini, FDR and Castro all used to implement their policies of repression. So it should be no surprise that Obama and his handlers are trying to manufacture such a situation again. It’s just that, in this day of modern media, they have to be more careful about how they do it. The appearances have to be just right or they risk turning the people against them rather than those us us who are still clinging to our God, guns and gold (i.e. rights and freedom).
But there’s more. As a nation, we are more divided than we have been since the Civil War. And just to show things never really change, that divide seems to be largely along the same lines as it was back then: the right of the liberal North to tell the Libertarian South what to do and how to live. It is along this line that Obama and the Left has been working to drive their wedges. We can see it in the recent polling data:
For those of us who stand on the side of individual rights and liberty, these polls should be alarming, especially when viewed in conjunction with the last two:
Now, if you are one of those who have been skeptical of my assertions that this nation is heading in the direction of open tyranny, I ask you: can you not see the indicators in these polls? You have more people supporting socialism than the free market; more people supporting one-party rule; and a growing number of those people siding with the socialist-leaning Democrats. Add to this to the growing divide between those who still cling to the notion of individual rights and liberty, mix in the deliberate and calculated attacks on property rights, gun rights and religious rights – all calculated to inflame the Right to the point of violent reaction – and you have everything you need but that Waco moment. And when it comes, are you really going to trust the media and government when they explain what happened and why they had to imprison/kill all of those involved?
If you still don’t see what I see, all I can tell you is that you can now explain to the rest of us who never understood how the Germans embraced Hitler.
