Statists and Violence

Posted by Tom Sawyer.

What do Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, Leonid Brezhnev, Mao Tse Tung, Pol Pot, Adolph Hitler, Fidel Castro, and numerous others all have in common?

Besides being twentieth century statists who saw government as the end-all solution to every human problem . . . they were all brutal murderers who (ab)used government to murder their own citizens on a very large scale.

They made Tim McVeigh look like a piker.


And what do Ted Kaczynski, Bill Ayres, the Black Panthers, and other sixties radicals have in common? They are all leftists who murdered people in the name of their revolutionary cause.

The Left has a long history of violence in the cause of its statist ideology and has murdered millions. Yet, let someone stand up for individual liberty and he is labeled an anarchist or a Timothy McVeigh by some idiot, leftist drone.

This is done for a reason. It is a tactic known as "poisoning the well" and is utilized by those who are losing the argument and cannot substantively promote their viewpoint.

This is why those of us who champion the individual against the collective are labeled with such epithets as racist, sexist, bigot, homophobe. This is why all politicians on the right are mocked as stupid while all of the leftists are honored as being the smartest people in the room.

Poisoning the well. Obviously everyone who opposes tyrannical government is a murderer in the bud. We are all Timothy McVeighs.

By the same (il)logic then, all environmentalists are Ted Kaczynskis, everyone who supports government-run health care is a Hitler, and all who believe that it "takes a village" are Stalins, Lenins, and Maos.

Right?

Ha! You're the one labelling the left with Nazism here.

And that's what YOU damn well believe.

And by the way, it's AdolF with an F. Hitler himself never spelled it with a ph.

"The US Government is an organization run by criminals that constantly abuses federal funds and violates the American people's trust by violating our civil liberties" - Allen Lewis

"The next thing you need to realize is that the money you are receiving is mine. It was taken from me by force. Worse than that, if you want to get more specific, it was taken from my children and grand-children, for it is they and their hard work which will be used to pay back this monstrous debt. So money was taken from us--taken by threat." - "Tom Sawyer"

"(The Republic) has been replaced by a monolithic government which robs men of wealth, property and liberty. That monolithic federal government so little resembles the Great Republic of Washington, Jefferson, and Adams that these men would not even recognize it. Their Republic has died the death of a thousand cuts--none of them budget cuts to be sure.

Individual liberty is on the run. No longer in fashion, she has fled in search of a defender, a protector, a refuge. She finds it nowhere, not in either major political party, not in any major city, not in any newspaper or major media outlet. Those who still love her are few and those among them brave enough to stand up for her are impugned barbarously. Tyranny is now in vogue and woe be to those who oppose that ravenous beast." - "Tom Sawyer"

"Those who betray or subvert the Constitution are guilty of sedition and/or treason, are domestic enemies and should and will be punished accordingly.

It also stands to reason that anyone who sympathizes with the enemy or gives aid or comfort to said enemy is likewise guilty. I have sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic and I will. And I will because not only did I swear to, but I believe in what it stands for in every bit of my heart, soul and being.

I know in my heart that I am right in my struggle, Steve. I have come to peace with myself, my God and my cause. Blood will flow in the streets, Steve. Good vs. Evil. Free Men vs. Socialist Wannabe Slaves. Pray it is not your blood, my friend." - Timothy McVeigh.

You know what is really weird? It is this:

1. You and Allen use exactly the same sort of language as Timothy McVeigh did.

2. Obama and Liberals use a completely different sort of language used by Hitler, Stalin and the rest. If you had actually read any of Hitler's works, or Stalin's speeches, or understood communist ideology (in all of its stupidity) you would actually realise that Obama and Liberals are different to them. But instead you choose to listen to Limbaugh and Fox News and be led by the nose. Rather then critically analysing what important people say you either accept it blindly (in the case of Limbaugh, Coulter, etc) or you dismiss it entirely (in the case of the mainstream media, Obama).

3. You're not a rebel, you're a slave.

Quite the reactionary aren't you?

Allen posted something the other day and has done so more than once about how much he abhors war and violence. He has named peace as one of his core principles. I, myself, have expressed more than once my viewpoint that civil disobedience is the correct and Christian response to tyranny, not violent revolution. yet you persist in saddling us with Tim McVeigh. Why? Because you are a Leftist and you are poisoning the well. I stand correct, not corrected. You see what you want to and are blinded by ideology.

Are you a Mao, Stalin, or Lenin? No, of course not. You are simply a fool and an ass. But worse than that you are an enabler, for it is gullible people like you who enable unscrupulous, power-hungry monsters like said thugs to obtain and maintain their power.

And I laugh at your labeling me a slave.
