Gun-Owners Are Being Blamed for the Failures of Liberalism
Ed. The first paragraph of Brown’s article
offers one of the best definitions of liberalism I’ve ever seen.
Liberalism is largely a process of
adopting illogical and factually invalid positions and then artificially
placing blame on its opponents when policies based on those positions
inevitably fail. For the blame to bear fruit, it is necessary for
people of good conscience to be fooled into believing that their actions and
beliefs are bad for society and have brought about shameful
consequences. At the same time, it is necessary for people whose
consciences have already been deformed and co-opted by the faux morality of
liberalism to be conditioned to think fellow citizens, who have caused no
actual harm but hold contrary views, are evil.
We see this pattern repeated in the
context of illegal immigration, global warming, environmentalism, opposition to
Islamic subversion of Western culture, feminism, and social justice
generally. Nowhere has it been more acutely on display than in the
left's hatred of private gun ownership as the ultimate barrier against
political overthrow. In order to disarm the country, the left's
adherents must be tricked into believing that guns and gun ownership are
irrevocably evil, and simultaneously that they and the policies they endorse
have nothing to do with the "gun violence" they selectively decry.
In order for leftists to succeed,
lawful gun-owners must be tricked into going along with this
illusion. Unfortunately for the left, people who are serious enough
to decide to accept the responsibility of careful stewardship of firearms are
not stupid enough to ignore that we are living in a cesspool entirely of the
left's making. Not surprisingly, mature, responsible gun-owners have
declined the left's invitation to be caricatured and smeared as the scapegoats
for where liberalism has taken us as a culture. As serious people,
they don't have much capacity for irrational, emotionally unhinged accusers
pointing their fingers at those who not only did not cultivate the environment
that has bred mass shooters, but also do not provide such people from their own
ranks. The phenomena of unhinged "mass shooters" and the
predictably vulnerable environments where they carry out their evil are unique
byproducts of liberalism and its failures.
Generally speaking, law-abiding
gun-owners are of a different time and culture. They are
anachronistic. To lawfully own a firearm is a commitment to timeless
principles of maturity, personal responsibility, individual freedom, and civic awareness. It
is a trust, a right possessed by free people who exercise their freedom
carefully and mindfully. It is not a masculine exercise, as men and
women exemplify these qualities equally in their lawful ownership of firearms. It
is rather a uniquely American exercise, which is why the left fully loathes
it. When liberal commentators spontaneously declare themselves
gun-owners for effect, it is unlikely that they are telling the truth, because
the philosophical underpinnings of American gun ownership are anathema to
them. In everything else they do, they shun and disclaim the America
of individualism, honor and integrity. They show no other
willingness in their words or actions to reject their liberal brethren so
totally as to own what their paganism declares an object possessed of evil
So what do I do now?
As true Americans, law-abiding
gun-owners reject the illogic, dishonesty, and corruption that animate every
aspect of liberal politics and social structure. They loathe the
culture that celebrates intolerance and bullying of opposing views, indeed
which goes so far as to turn a blind eye to physical violence when it is
carried out by leftist assailants against Americans to coerce conformity and
acceptance of poisonous ideologies. They reject the culture that
both creates victimhood and then encourages the rage it causes, so that those
who see themselves as victims feel personally and socially justified in doing
harm to people who have done them no harm whatsoever. Truth is
irrelevant; liberals look outward. Their enemy is always to blame.
Law-abiding gun-owners do not accept
that they should be made to pay each time a person who is marginalized and
inflamed by the immoral vacuum of liberal culture snaps, under the ever
watchful eye of exploitative politicians and some law enforcement personnel who
have been told to look the other way to skew statistics showing how out of
control people have become in liberal culture. The outcome is
inevitable, and, having rejected solutions that have worked in conservative
locales, they pretend to be surprised with each slaughter they facilitated in a
gun-free zone. It isn't lawful gun-owners who callously endanger
children and then stand on their corpses or manipulate the survivors to blame
the wrong people. It isn't lawful gun-owners who insist on the
victims' defenselessness. It isn't gun-owners who excitedly wait,
speech at the ready, for the horror to be repeated and for the political boost
it brings to their agenda.
Sacrifice your guns to the left and you'll soon understand!
Law-abiding gun-owners recognize the
damage that liberalism has done to America and the dangers it has
brought. They have chosen to own a firearm as a bulwark against the
immorality and violence that liberalism has brought, socially and
politically. They have made the conscious decision to own a firearm
not to bring violence, for the liberals have brought violence to last for
generations, but to prevent it being done to them and those they love.
The left understands nothing about
those who own firearms as an exercise of their human right to resist the imposition
of evil upon the defenseless. While they force us to live in their
absurd psychological experiment in pervasive stupidity, they insist that we
surrender as they have, and that we be made as vulnerable and defenseless as
they have chosen to be. They hate that we are still free to exempt
ourselves from their fantasy, in which we are daily told that we are the
evildoers who must be punished for the culture they created.
Lawful gun-owners are being entirely
blamed for the cultural and societal failures of liberalism, which are endless
in an ideology built on lies and irrational fantasy. To accelerate
the movement toward forcible disarmament, there will be a "Children's
March" soon. It will be attended or watched by millions of
brainwashed products of the NEA, a liberal advocate for complete government
control, cynically using their right of disinformed free speech to manipulate
children to destroy the right of millions to self-defense against
tyranny. In the process, lawful gun-owners will be blamed for all
they have fought by millions of children who have been told that it is the
gun-owners who are lying about who exposed and abandoned them to the violence
of liberalism and a life of serfdom. No doubt child-sized brown
shirts will be available for purchase at the march.
This is how children are
indoctrinated as agents of the state, which uses them like so many
bullet-catchers and footstools. This is how freedom is stolen.
