Mike Vanderboegh’s Patriots Day speech at the Bundy Ranch.
Archive for the ‘Resistance’ Category
A ramble through human nature …
Mack. Smack that man. He had to have known — had to from all his years of experience — that this stupid and apparently completely untrue blat would not only be picked up by every enemy of freedom, but that it would be remembered, and exaggerated, for the next 20 years. (“Oh yeah, the Bundy Ranch militia people. They were the ones who used women and babies as human shields …”)
Whatever possessed him?
- I’ve been trying to find out how many New Yorkers dutifully lined up by yesterday’s deadline to get their
yellow Star of David badges“assault weapon” registration forms. New York officials aren’t telling. Unofficial estimates are interesting.
- In Seattle (where cops have been under federal scrutiny for being such brutes), apparently police aren’t the only badge-wearing thugs.
- My apologies to LarryA for not linking this the other day, but it’s a good one even if I’m late with it. “Women’s intuition” and concealed carry meet a very surprised robber.
- One more reason to exercise no matter how old you are: healthier skin.
- No, it’s definitely not over at the Bundy Ranch. But the watchers remain ready.
- Man, poor Mark Witaschek can’t catch a break. Just keep repeating to yourself, “This is the freest nation on earth, this is the freest nation on earth, this is …”
Like most here I’ve been watching the standoff at the Bundy ranch. I’ve had nothing new to add to the discussion, so I haven’t blogged about it. Like others, I was just trying to figure what to make of it. I only hoped it wouldn’t end up being another Weaver/Waco massacre.
Not this time:
(Image via Sipsey Street, where Mike Vanderboegh has some spirited things to say about it.)
- Well, it appears that Albuquerque residents have seriously had it with their thrill-killer cops.
- Churches. Being converted into pubs.
- Did you know … that “dog whisperer” Cesar Millan came to the U.S. as an illegal immigrant? (Tip o’ hat to PT)
- Another reason for drug warriors to suspect and harass you: having a Colorado license plate. (Will having a Washington state license plate be the next sure sign that you’re a monster possessed by Reefer Madness?)
- This writer asks why “we” make children sit still in class. But she dodges the answer. That’s curious, because John Taylor Gatto and many others have addressed that question in books and articles. “We” make children sit still in school (and obey bells, and associate only with those of the same age, and study each individual subject as if it’s unrelated to any other) because our government school system is based on a Prussian model designed to produce obedient little drones.
Paul Bonneau dropped this astonishing video link into comments. It deserves a post of its own. ¡Viva General Vivas! ¡Viva la resistencia!*
* I hope that actually says something meaningful in Spanish — which I don’t actually speak. Never can quite be sure whether “la resistencia” might actually just be a property of electricity, or maybe a cuss word, rather than what I think it means.
The ever-fiery Mike Vanderboegh sends a warning to anti-gun state legislators via the tale of “Aunt Jenny.”
Maybe if you’re in Alabama (as Mike is), Jenny lore is in your blood. Dunno. I’d never heard of her. When I looked her up, I discovered that no two accounts agree. They’re so far apart that even her name is disputed. So are the political sympathies (or apathies) of Jenny and her vengeful brood — even though those views played a huge role in triggering the bloody doings.
I’m taking this version of the story as definitive, mostly because it doesn’t claim to know what nobody knows, yet adds some scintillatingly grim detail.
However you slice it — and slice is a deliberately chosen word here — whotta tale, whotta woman!
And that’s not a good thing. Simon Black on food, revolutions, and other matters. (Nothing you don’t already know, but some good reminders, nevertheless.)
The main difference is that Westerners have been brainwashed into believing that the civilized people voice their grievances in a voting booth rather than doing battle in the streets.
It’s a false premise. Unfortunately, so is violent revolution.
As my dictionary so perfectly defines, “revolution” has two meanings.
First, it can denote an overthrow of a sitting government, whether violent or ‘bloodless’.
But in celestial terms, ‘revolution’ denotes a complete orbit around a fixed axis. In other words, after one revolution, you end up right back where you started.
