ON A SAD ONE MONTH ANNIVERSARY — 22 Comments

  1. Read in detail the “Why Are We Doing This?” paragraph of the link below to discover the REAL AGENDA of the anti-gun leftist progressives who are involving schoolchildren nationwide in today’s March 14 walkout.

    What they hate and whom they hate (pathologically) become crystal clear!

    Targets of their hatred include: Guns. Gun Owners. “Brutal” police. “Militarized” police. School Resource Police Officers. American foreign policy. America’s ongoing export of “gun violence” to foreign countries.

    P.S. Examine the sentence structure, the word choice, and the style of writing of the paragraph in question. No student at high school level composed this paragraph. No way. This is “agitprop” of the highest order that would bring a smile to Vladimir Lenin’s face.

    • Given the general literary abilities of today’s high schoolers this written rhetoric is way “above their pay grade,” to paraquote our recent anti-President.

    • @ Curtis – You are 100% correct. This statement is a direct expression of the “Policy Planks” of the extreme left-wing of the Democratic Party. What the Left is doing is as clear as words written in black ink on a white page. The Left has:

      1) Totally penetrated the American Education System and gained control of it.

      2) With this control, they have done their best to indoctrinate the youth of America into Left-Wing ideology and into the leftist thought-pattern.

      3) Their indoctrination of the children has been so successful that they now feel comfortable using them tools and props to push the leftist agenda against gun control and, as Curtis points out, on general left-wing targets such as “Police Brutality” and “Imperialistic America Foreign Policy”.

      The children make ideal tools, especially for gun control, since the entire operating procedure of the Left is to divide Americans into specific “Victim Groups” and then motivate them to protest their “Victimization”. The shooting of children instantly promotes them to “Victim Status”.

      As I noted before, the hearts of these manipulative leftists soar whenever a school gets shot up and children are killed. The deaths of children gives the American Left a propaganda tool which their school indoctrination efforts readily allows them to exploit. The deaths of children by (as the leftists call it) “Gun Violence” is pure gold for the left’s propaganda efforts. They leap to exploit each and everyone joyfully!

  2. Actually, that first paragraph, “why are we doing this” comes straight from communist propaganda speeches of the 1950s. Whether it was a student or not is not as important as that we see it for what it is. They have a MUCH bigger agenda than simply gun control. Registration. Confiscation. Subjugation. It has happened elsewhere. let us remain on guard.

  3. My school district met this abomination head-on and cancelled school for the whole day due to bad weather. We had a snow “event” and rural parts of the county were dangerous to drive in. After a two, then a three hour delay classes a cross the county were cancelled. SOP for our county when bad weather strikes.

    I hadn’t heard about this wakout, nobody mentioned or discussed it in school yesterday or Monday as far as I know, and I was there.

  4. Well said good Curtis. To much screaming invective and pithy smart mouthing,(even from gun owners) I myself, have made this point clear for years.

    This is exactly what helped lead to the downfall and destruction of Germany, Russia, China et al.

    They scream for more government, and demand no one but criminals and military be armed.

    We see how well that worked in the last century…

    And, as to Lennin.

    “Give me four years to teach the children, and the seeds I have sown will never be uprooted!”

  5. Unfortunately I think that the only ones in our country today that recognize our values are those of us who either served in the military or some form of law enforcement. That being said we can’t forget about the millions of good gun owners who hold jobs that do not require carrying a gun every day. I happen to be a retired Deputy Sheriff from the great state of Wyoming and graduated from their law enforcement academy. We have since retired to north Idaho. Greatly enjoyed former president Reagan’s address the that meeting of the NRA. I probably heard it in 1983 but had forgotten some parts of it. The post on the women’s march could not be more true! Obviously as suggested someone else wrote that post and the comment about Vladimir Lenin is spot on!

  6. The great preponderance of “active shooters” has been male. A thorough understanding of insane male aggression is particularly necessary from the male perspective to achieve effective security. Anyone with a mental block against using sensible, armed security of adequate quality and quantity, which is abundantly available, needs to realize that said mental block, especially if gender-specific, is a huge part of the security problem.

  7. President Reagan was a good President! But, remember, this is the man that “outlawed machineguns” and gave us an illegal immigrant amnesty.

    • Machine guns have been controlled since 1934…..No one is using a machine gun YET The crank trigger and Bump stocks are toys make a common weapon more dangerous and I have no problem seeing them totally outlawed. I’m indifferent with large cap mags. 2 reasons . It’s been proved repeated some one who know how to shoot can get the same number of rounds off from a 7 rd mag a s another with a 10 rd mag. If you need more then one round you need to practice. If you put 2 round mid sternum of a bad dude the law may have a different view of th eneed to fire that second round. Depending on the round. 22-38-380 etc 2-3 may be needed 45..One will do fine. 357 no question so watch the 2 in the chest through the vest and then removing the head. Fun on the range but my be a legal problem later.Many will debate every word I have said.. Cool. That’s why we live here at least for a little while longer. Big Business and there leadership may decide they don’t like other opinions. Keep your powder dry.. I love this site. 1st post long time reader..

  8. The sad thing is todays field of choices to lead this country. I don’t vote FOR someone anymore, I vote AGAINST someone to keep them out.

  9. If only Not Real Activists had knowledgeable committed leaders who were intent on solving the problem rather than exacerbating it to enrich and
    empower themselves and their cronies. I quit the NRA shortly after Wayne’s rise to power. Gun Owners of America represents me.

  10. Jeff Sorosiak……………..Liberalism: When you believe teenagers don’t know enough about guns to own them, but know enough about guns to decide whether YOU should own one.

  11. It seems to totally escape a great many folks that Northern Ireland had/has the type of gun laws that some find admirable. Despite that, the sectarian violence continued. Until the population (of both faiths), decided they’d had enough and stopped cooperating with the thugs and started cooperating with the authorities.

    Entirely too many of my generation, and later ones, refuse to accept civic,parental or personal responsibility. Bluntly this needs to change. We need a watershed movment like Northern Ireland had.

  12. BTW: Here are 4 Causes of DEATH, that KILL MORE People, every Year, than the Total Gun Deaths, of ALL Kinds! Why Aren’t People Howling, and Screaming, to have these Causes of Human DEATH Banned, or Out Lawed?

    1.) Cancer, 03/14/2018, Source: TTN, by: TTN Staff

    The CDC reports that 595,930 Americans died of cancer in 2016. That’s 54 times more people than were a victim of non-suicidal gun violence. Those poor folks weren’t all smokers, either. The following is an abridged list of things that cause cancer, which should be the object of protest by students:
    Tobacco smoking; Sunlamps and sunbeds; Aluminium production; Arsenic in drinking water; Auramine production; Boot and shoe manufacture and repair; Chimney sweeping; Coal gasification; Coal tar distillation; Coke (fuel) production
    Furniture and cabinet making;Secondhand smoke; Iron and steel founding; Magenta dye manufacturing; Occupational exposure as a painter; Paving and roofing with coal-tar pitch Rubber industry; fungi.
    Alcoholic beverages; Areca nut – often chewed with betel leaf; Betel quid without tobacco; Betel quid with tobacco; Coal tars; Indoor emissions from household combustion of coal; Diesel exhaust; Mineral oils; Chinese-style salted fish; Shale oils; Soots; Smokeless tobacco products; Wood dust; Processed meat; Asbestos; Arsenic and arsenic compounds; Benzene; Cadmium and cadmium compounds; Contraceptives, hormonal, combined forms (those containing both oestrogen and a progestogen); Contraceptives, oral; Formaldehyde; Mustard gas; Neutron radiation; Nickel compounds; Outdoor air pollution; Particulate matter in outdoor air pollution; Radon-222 and its decay products; Silica; Solar radiation; Talc containing asbestiform fibres; Ultraviolet radiation; X-radiation and gamma radiation.

    According to left-leaning 538 blog, “Two-thirds of the more than 33,000 gun deaths that take place in the U.S. every year are suicides”. That means approximately 11,000 people are murdered by someone else with a gun. Around 40,000 people died in car accidents in 2016; about a quarter of those involved cell phones. These woke kids should be smashing their smartphones, but it is ironic that their protests can involve Actually blocking roads.

    While the snowflakes agree with former gun-grabbing mayor Michael Bloomberg on guns, maybe they should agree with him on nutrition, too. The CDC tells us that 79,535 died from Diabetes in 2016. Now The Feel-Gooder’s really have a lot of ground to cover with their protests. They can protest Starbucks, 7-Eleven, and even their school’s vending machines that sell sugar. If you think that’s bad, check out the next slide.

    Heart disease kills over 57 times more people than guns do in the United States. In 2016, the CDC reports that 633,842 people lost their lives to heart disease, with around 11,000 non-suicidal gun deaths. A hidden killer that’s driving this statistic is sitting. So, to stop this horrible killer, students should start protesting chair manufacturers, car manufacturers and dealers, commuter trains and buses, and their own schools for not having standing desks.

    Also, throw in anyone that sells trans-fat, televisions, computers, cell phones, and the list goes on. These mathematically challenged kids really need to put numbers in perspective and stand up to their lousy teachers. The math doesn’t lie. Liberals do.

  13. I served under President Reagan as a U.S. Marine. He was a great man and leader but at the start of this speech he talks about the negotiations that led to Israel’s withdrawal from Lebanon. This withdrawal resulted in a civil war that allowed the Hezbollah terrorists to take over Lebanon which led to their bombing of the Marine Barracks in Beirut in October 1983 which killed 241 Marines.

  14. Unedited Extract from NY Times Thursday Briefing March 15 2018

    Take note of the content of paragraph 3 below. This is the sole instance of reported student non-participation in the March 14 anti-gun nationwide walkout that I could find.

    For the most part, the modern day Pravda mainstream media lionized the students who walked out on March 14th as if they were modern-day “Komosol Kids” marching both to protest against pro-gun “hooliganism” and to encourage the public denouncing and outing of “hooligans” who dare to support the private ownership of guns, or worse, to actually own or carry guns.

    Do any other blog readers sense that the mainstream media might eventually encourage heavily indoctrinated “Komosol Kids” of 2018 to inform on family members, friends or next door neighbors who either “think incorrectly” about guns or who own and carry guns?

    I am laughing right now as I compose this message, but take a moment to consider the vulnerability of impressionable K-12 school students who cannot find China, Iran, North Korea or Russia on a map and who probably think that “Soviet” is a new brand of athletic footwear. I am no longer laughing, are you?

    Unedited extract from NY Times Thursday Briefing March 15 2018 is shown below:

    Out of class, into the streets

    1. Thousands of students walked out of schools across the U.S. on Wednesday as part of a coordinated protest calling for gun control.

    2. The walkouts generally lasted for 17 minutes, one for every victim in last month’s school shooting in Parkland, Fla.

    3. Although the protests commanded attention on TV and social media, it was clear that many students did not participate, especially in rural and conservative areas where gun control is not popular.

  15. We live in a time where very few of the population have paid a price for the freedoms guaranteed by our constitution. A time where some 40% + don’t pay any income tax, yet enjoy benefits not available to those that do. Politicians cater to these non-contributors and they in turn do the bidding of those politicians. This leaves only around 10% who need to be convinced that our historical values and traditions are evil and need to be replaced. The media and academia has been very successful indoctrinating the young minds of those still being supported by their parents. I fear we are only a generation away from voluntarily giving up our freedom. We take pride in the beautiful house we inherited while tolerating the termites steadily destroying the foundation. We know what’s going on, we gripe and complain, they keep gnawing away and multiplying.

  16. Our cause is lost. This is the mentality, lack of self awareness, and lack of knowledge of the activists being cultivated in our schools by the forces of darkness.

    Note the student displaying an anti-NRA poster who is oblivious to the fact she is wearing a sweatshirt printed with the pro-gun slogan “Molon Labe” so popular among pro-2A folks. And folks wonder why we’re losing our country.

    Teens Already Know How to Overthrow the Government
    By Lisa Miller

    I am confused. If the “bad ass”, “furious” and “button-downed” anti-gun Parkland FL teenage activists (no doubt funded, guided and influenced by hard core leftist progressives) are involved in a “rebellion” (see article category above) and are lauded by the article’s author because they “already know how to overthrow the government”, has a nascent, nationwide anti-gun “protest movement” evolved overnight to become a bona fide “seditious movement” meriting investigation by the FBI? My inquiring mind wants to know.
