The “Spontaneous” Anti-Gun Movement

Anyone who has followed the outbreak of “spontaneous” popular movements in the past four decades and done a little homework has to realize that such popular movements, all lack one basic ingredient–spontaneity. They didn’t just “happen” they were organized and planned and lots of people were used to set them  in motion all at once.

I recall the Kent State riots in 1970. At that particular point in time I was close to two college campuses, one of which I worked at. As the students poured out of both campuses to riot and cause mayhem in the streets, I remember, being there to see some of what went on, that this looked like the most well-orchestrated riot I had ever witnessed. Spontaneous it was not. Those students had been prepped for this, in  some cases by the professors, most of which leaned solidly to the Left. I actually saw one professor with a group of students, lecturing them about how to act and react once they hit the streets.

The little college I worked at had a ton of Leftist propaganda on hand for the students to pass out, some of it printed in North Viet Nam. I know because I took a box full of it home and read through much of it. With the Viet Nam War going on at that time, this was actually a not-so-subtle enemy invasion of our college campuses. I  wondered, if there was all that much enemy propaganda at this little school I worked at, how much of this stuff got shipped to Columbia University?  And who paid for all  this stuff to be shipped in to  these schools?

And now, fast forward to today. We have had a whole series of shootings at schools, all in “gun free zones” and the cry for gun control after each one has continued to escalate. This latest one in Parkland, Florida is a classic case in point. Let me say at this point that I consider most of these events to have been false flag events–something done by some group to create a public response so a  planned agenda can then be forced on the American people–a classic “pressure from above and pressure from below” situation, so  that this situation can be used to fuel a strong anti-Second Amendment fever amongst the public.

Arthur Thompson, CEO of the John Birch Society, has made some interesting comments in regard to this latest Florida situation and to such events in general. He said: “Let us use a little logic in this regard. Someone has to decide the who, what, when, where, and why of any event, movement, etc. Someone, or some group, has to put it all together so that seemingly diverse organizations all come together  at the same time, whether physically, such as a demonstration,  or where all are on the same page with their influence or propaganda.” He noted that social media plays a role in this. And then he noted a group of seemingly “diverse”groups that all  came together using the Parkland situation as their catalyst. He noted such groups and individuals as “Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, MoveOn.org, Planned Parenthood, the  Women’s March LA, Everytown for Gun
Safety,…and the socialist American Federation of Teachers (AFT) to name a few. (Nearly every head of the AFT has been a leader in the Socialist Party or its successors.) Kind of makes you wonder who’s running the public schools doesn’t it? But then, most of us already know the answer to that one–and it ain’t the parents or the local community!

Mr. Thompson found it difficult (and so do I) to believe that all those companies that had worked with the NRA now suddenly stopped, as though the shooting were, somehow the NRA’s fault. He said: “There had to be an effort to prod dozens of companies to make such a decision literally overnight. Particularly since the NRA had nothing to do with the shooting…” But demonizing the NRA makes all guns look bad to the public and that is a main part of the agenda.

And Mr. Thompson observed, again, quite accurately, that “…the Left exploited the Parkland shooting by blaming the gun and rallied immediately to coordinate a movement that has as its ultimate intent the disarming of every American citizen, starting with a few changes now to be followed up by more and more after each new act of terror.” So we are not nearly done with this Leftist  disarmament agenda. There will be more and you can bet the farm that good ol’ David Hogg(wash) will be out there with his Communist clenched fist salute as he and his Leftist buddies work  for the removal of your Second Amendment rights–and that’s what they are all about–make no mistake! You will recall how one of those Leftist girls at the first anti-gun march on March 14th of this year said in a speech–“You give us an inch and we will take a mile.” She told you right there what it’s really all about–gun confiscation! And those that deny that are, quite  plainly, LIARS!

Keep your eye on your congress critters in this election year because most of them will have their fingers up in the air testing which was the anti-gun sentiment is blowing and unless we keep their feet to the fire, they will slip the traces and sell us out! A word to the wise!

I’m Getting Tired of Foul-Mouthed Child Media Activists

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am getting sick and tired of listening to potty-mouthed child “activists” chanting about more gun control or seeing them head up marches that call for repealing the Second Amendment and listening to them lecture older folks about how we don’t know much about “using a f—— Democracy” as though they and only they were somehow born to be the fonts of all human wisdom. If you want my opinion, it is all Hoggwash!

This gifted “activist” (useful idiot would be more like it) berates his elders because they supposedly don’t know how to utilize their form of government, yet he can’t even get the proper form of government correct. I wonder if he knows the difference between a republic and a democracy? Did they ever teach him that in this government school he attended? Bet they didn’t.

There was a time in this country when younger folks respected their elders instead of pretending they were all stupid and calling them profanity-laden names. This present generation, and the one before it, seem to think humanity would not possibly have survived if they hadn’t arrived on the scene to explain to all us elder buffoons about how we should live. Some of these “activist” kids are on a gigantic ego trip and they somehow think the world will never make it unless we all listen to them spout all the talking points they were scripted and coached in by the Leftist agitators who pushed them forward because they could serve the Leftist agenda.

I’ve got news for some of you budding socialists who think you are “changing the world.” Once the Leftists and those who finance them get through using you and getting all the mileage out of you that they can, they will toss you on the ash heap of history like so many wrung-out dishrags and that will be all she wrote for you–and you will wake up some fine morning and ponder over why you ain’t “famous” anymore!

I watched a video on the internet of the indispensable Mr. Hogg berating those who disagree with his infinite wisdom. It seemed that about every seventh word out of his mouth was the “F word.” But then, that seems to be a favorite term with the Left nowadays. When they can’t come up with a cogent argument about anything they just “give you the finger” and that ends the debate! Sort of like calling you a “racist.” That’s supposed to end the debate, only it doesn’t anymore and so in their frustration, they resort to the middle finger because, if the truth were realized, they don’t have anything else!!!

In my browsing recently I came across an article by a John Zigler, the headline for which was The Media Should Not Let David Hogg Be Both a Child-Victim And an Adult Activist. That’s an interesting headline, and Mr. Zigler has a point. Mr. Hogg should not be able to be both–either he is one or the other. But the way it is now, he is playing both ends against the middle–literally! He is practicing that old Marxist game of “pressure from above and pressure from below” that I have written about before–a game to make sure that the middle class, ordinary folks, are caught in the middle between those above them and those below them–who are actually working together to squeeze them out!

So I will just say this to Mr. Hogg in closing–You are not “changing the world” as much as you like to think you are. You are being used to change it by someone else who has a totally different worldview than most of us in this country have or want and they are using you to force their vision of Amerika on the rest of us. You may not like that, buddy, but that’s how it really is. And if you really like the words your handlers are putting in your mouth to spew at the rest of us, then you are part of the problem, not the solution!
