Yea, liberals better hope the new revolution isn’t needed…I figure us REAL Americans outgun them about 200,000,000 guns to 0.
Oh, and nice to see Zed finished his drink…he reminded me of the old Dean Martin TV show…old Dino always had a cigarette and a drink in his hand while hosting…those were the good old days before the nanny state.
Now, over 300,000 legal guns in the USA.
No doubt many more.
The guns? They’re ALL legal, it’s the LAWS that are illegal.
I find it interesting that those who sell weapons illegally on the black market are the only sellers who abide by the Constitution.
“…shall not be infringed.” One of the most succinct in the the list and yet, Progs don’t understand, it’s an illness.
I think “wanting us dead” is a bit of an overstatement. I’d say the left is “heedless” of American deaths on the way to their imagined “perfect world”.
Their means conduce their ends. They’re always right. Any problems or injuries/deaths that result must therefore be someone else’s fault. The people who can’t comprehend the grandness and beauty of the Progressive vision are messing things up for everyone and getting people killed.
I’m not sure “wanting us dead” really is an overstatement. I can’t recall the exact wording, but IIRC Alinsky had something like needing to “eliminate” certain groups in order to bring on the prog utopia. Can anyone help me with the details?
Don’t recall the exact context, but (IIRC) the number that Alinsky and Bill Ayres figured that they’d be unable to “reform” and, therefore, would have to “eliminate” was upwards of 25 million here in the USA. That’s a helluvalotta mass graves, kiddies! Keep stocking up on ammo.
Look up most of the deep-ecology movement. They believe that to “save Holy Mother Gaia” they must not only “de-develop” the Earth to a pre-Bronze Age, agrarian socialist/feudalist culture (castles for them, mud huts for the peasants who spread night soil in the rice paddies by hand), but also they have to reduce the human population of the planet to the ‘carrying capacity” of “Gaia”, which they calculate at between 50 million and 500 million humans. That is, themselves plus abut ten slave and two strongarm types to control same each. John Holdren, Paul Ehrlich, and others tend to wax psychotic on this subject.
Then of course, there was Dr. Eric Pianka;
Who publicly called for a “weaponized” Ebola virus to wipe out 90% of the human race, then tried to “walk it back” by claiming “I just want my grandchildren to inherit a better Earth”.
His grandchildren- not anyone else’s.
(BTW, the Wikipedia entry on “Dr. Doom” tries to claim he was “misinterpreted”, and that those who reported what he said- and the applause he got from the undergrad audience- were lying. Sorry, it was “caught on tape”, as they say.)
Also, Bill Ayers stated that as part of the “Revolution”, it would be necessary to “dispose of” about 25 to 50 million Americans who would not be “re-educable”. His solution? Camps, of course.
There are many other examples. A google search of the subject on deep-ecology, anarchist, and socialist websites, or just talking to any of the above when they think you’re “one of the faithful”, will get the data easily enough. As with all fanatic movements, the “faithful” say things they would rather the “non-believers” wouldn’t hear when they are sure that only “true believers” are present.
No wonder they invoke Godwin’s law in every discussion.
“Wanting us dead’ or ‘wanting us contained’
I would choose dead. I have experienced containment, I will not repeat that experience.
I choose forcing that choice back on them.
That applies to islam AND to leftism.
I watch Deep Green Resistance.
Clever little dears think they have discovered a secret
called “asymmetrical warfare” that no one else knows.
With this in mind, perhaps what we need more are hazmat suits and decontamination chambers.
We can have our choice of guns and ammunition gratis after the Gaia worshipers have their say.
Isn’t it nice for them, that they get to have such delusions and not be on medication for it?
In “National Treasure” Nick Gage utters the same lines. Hell of a concept but it does not have to be the structure of the government only its perverse minions. Remember, lampposts for all.

It is quite alright, Anatoly, to use a set of prompter notes like a pocket copy of both the Declaration (you are atempting to quote) and the Constitution which is the People’s rule book that government is supposed to adhere to but obviously hasn’t in well over 100 years.
It is noteworthy, is it not, that so many of the most grevious infractions against the Constitution happened in or after 1913. Gee thanks FDR.
cap, no your abundant admiration is real but if it’s for anatoly …
While I do admire the character Anatoly represents it is the beautious Naomi that engenders my “abundant admiration”. (See cartoon at top of page for reference.) Thanks Chris.
I knew that cap, just funnin’ ya.
As for ‘Toly, he might not quote it straight but he knows what it means a lot better than most. Pretty pathetic that it takes a Commie expat to appreciate what we have taken so much for granted that we’ve allowed New Commies and Muzbro to take it away.
Toly is an expat from communist country, not a commie.
That would be the more correct syntax, yes…of course the rest of that sentence leaves no doubt where his sympathies lie.
And I’m not sure if we know he was never Communist, do we?
He’s awfully young to have been a communist. You’re kinda old to be trying to split hairs quite so fine?
If he was a Russian military officer before 1990, even a warrant or shavetail 2nd Lt., he had to be a Party member. That doesn’t mean he bought the line, judging from ex-Red Army and Russian Air Force types I’ve met over the years.
Do we have that in his biography? I thought he was in his early-mid 20s, which would have put him around 9 years old or less in 1990. His “formative years” would have been during privation of the late 80s leading into the “collapse” of 1989-91.
“His “formative years” would have been during privation of the late 80s leading into the “collapse” of 1989-91.”
I wondered if we know that Anatoly was never “Communist”, you wonder if we know that he ever was. A rather ironic splitting of a different hair, I guess…
Either way he has seen firsthand what it is and what it isn’t, and has made his choice…and your timeline shows who is responsible for that. I wonder if RR gets any more credit for saving the eastern world than he does for saving the west?
attempting not atempting … one of these days I’ll get these fingers trained … maybe.
This is a deadly serious subject, and Chris has created one of his very few deadly serious strips to address it. ‘Toly is correct, and we aren’t, even yet, engaged with the horror of this problem.
Well. yeah, but if we’re all gone, who’s gonna clean the bathrooms?
forgive the language, but this shit is gettin’ real:
ICE and the Border Patrol have been stoppin’ ’em here in Texas, too. Looks like I might have to shoot off some of that “special” ammo (projectile tips coated in lard or hollow points filled with it) I got prepared. Definitely glad we get to start openly carrying here in a couple of weeks (New Years day).
So many exactly right, in combination. Yes, the shit is getting real. Yes, Toly nailed it, if not to perfect word for word. It gets nearer and nearer, as ugly as it will be. My OATH had no expiration date. Nuff sed?
With the intent now seeming to be to disarm the public rather than protect them, to import jizzlamic animals rather than exterminating them in situ, the incredible reality disconnect demonstrated by the feckless fraud and its brain-dead enablers fast approaches an imperative for revisiting the events of the late 1700s. In this vein, I must observe that a dedicated effort to seize firearms could render ammunition useless. Rather than discarding it, I would urge those required to surrender firearms first to conserve natural resources / minimize our carbon footprint and carefully transfer the ammunition to the proper parties before delivering the firearms to Big Brother & the Gestapo. Everyone can contribute to the vital effort to end climate change!
Just the top portion of the ammunition, however. Retain the brass for recycling.
Anatoly is right. The facist left are no longer fellow americans with different political views, they are the Enemy and deep in their black little hearts they want us enslaved or dead.
They’ve always been that way. Look up the anarchist movement, Rosa Luxemberg, Fabian Society, etc., or just read The Dynamite Club by John M. Merriman;
The modern-day, “sophisticated” idea of “We will create Heaven On Earth, all we have to do is get rid of all those grotty groundlings and reactionaries” has been the foundation of leftist dogmas from the beginning.
Today, they just think they no longer have to hide it. As Joseph Rosenberger once said of the USSR, a movement is most dangerous when they reach the point of believing that they can get away with anything.
To judge by our college campuses, Salon magazine, etc., that point has been reached.
Keep your powder dry.
When? Aye, therein lies the rub. And I really hope it does not descend to that point because outside interests would step in.
If we get truly into it among ourselves the Left’s allies will step in.
The left is counting on that, especially Islam. See “Manson Scenario”;
They believe that after their Triumph, the “stupid” foreign “liberationists” will beg them to run the Brave New World and be their adoring acolytes- terrorizing the surviving slaves into obedience.
They overlook those “foreign liberationists'” track record of disposing of Quislings as soon as they no longer need them. After all, they aren’t about to run the risk that said Quislings would betray them in their turn; they’re not that stupid.
The Left (as looney as some of them are) with their “Oh it will be perfect if or when we can (insert here) mantras, also have in their depths persons with truly EVIL intent to wipe out everyone who refuses to submit.
They crave power. The need to dominate. The need to control. The need to inflict pain. They want everyone fearful. They will destroy if it meets the desired end result.
They want to eliminate freedom – because it’s dangerous.
“When in the Course of human events” indeed. But remember “Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations,” as well.
I’ll continue it:
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies….
And for the WWJD crowd, His umpty-ump great uncle advised,
“There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.”
(Ecclesiastes 3:1-3, 7, 8 NIV)
The man WAS considered the wisest ever. (Well, except maybe when it came to dealing with women.)
And for the hippies, there’s even a song about it. 🙂
But the hippy song leaves out “time for war”. It was a peacenik song in its day.
Actually, it’s in there. They just editorialize on the bit about peace, repeating it at the end.
It gets close by substituting
A time to cast away stones
A time to gather stones together
But most of the hippies probably thought that meant building a temple at their ashram.
As if they even knew how. I grew up around quite a few hippy types, and masonry and bricklaying wasn’t their strong suit.
Like the man says, we uniquely in the world have the option to correct the current course of human events by pulling the trigger. What a lousy option that is…but thank God and the Framers we have it, for now.
Such irony that the attempt to remove it will ensure its employment.
Where to begin….this is so on the mark…the situation in this country has deteriorated in the last 7 years to the point of absurd….race relations were moving along rather smoothly until this administration intentionally stirred the pot….obamatola refusing to bomb the oil fields held by ISIS until France led the way…France!….why was he not impeached as the traitor he is?….he is a Jihadist enabler to all but the blind who will not see it….and now he wants to import it into the country unabated….congress, I’m sure, must have at least discussed impeachment, but feared the race war that would’ve surely occurred….you cannot govern out of fear….do the right thing, damn it….do the right thing….and let the chips fall where they may….”Even Stalin did not import killers”….amen…
Well, actually he sort of did. He used Mongolian troops in Ukraine, Kazakh troops in Belarus, Great Russian troops in Siberia, etc.
In short, he played the different ethnicities within the USSR off against each other. Much as Tito would later do in what used to be Yugoslavia.
I suspect that our present crop of Che’!-wannabees would love to do the same, but can’t quite figure out how.
At least, not yet.
“THAT’S NOT WHO WE ARE!” The cry of the Libtard/Progs.
The explanation for everything they can’t stand or tolerate about those not like them.
As likely one of the few people who can say that they bested, nay devastated, Bill Ayers arguments in a publicly called meeting (in the Engineering Building) in his attempt to recruit people to join him in using violence to change America, I will say that I must not use my personal reaction to him on my one meeting with him to explain him. The word weasel was how feelings were encapsulated in a word.
But a weasel is dangerous, as are the vast infestation of people who have adopted that cause including people like Hillary and Obama and Mellisa Harris-Perry, Bernie the Sandman, Ayers’ father who helped a student from Indonesia, and whole university structures. (Yesterday I watched from a data stick Ben Stein’s documentary movie Expelled concerning cleansing of universities of anyone who supported “Intelligent Design” or just did not oppose it.)
Bill Ayers and all following their Cause or Causes are very dangerous people. Bill Ayers back then was an intelligent articulate and driven person desiring to throw himself into the fight. Muslims react similarly. I know that he had listened to my devastation of his recruitment effort as I heard many of the same words and ideas from his mouth when he was describing what he was doing when he was interviewed concerning that entire staged OCCUPY movement. Shades of Mao. Now we have the crybabies furthering that Mao denouncing tactic.
These people are serious. The world is different due to the small changes Obama has been able to use to set fires, add fuel to fires, and ignore fires across the world using the power of the white house. His fostering and adding to the asymmetric war and invasion of the United States is treasonous. Obama sees it as furthering the many causes.
It no longer is talk that we must tolerate as we were told it made us strong to have all these ideas given stage as alternatives. This cause and end America talk I have heard from the communists I met when I was a small child on to what they all have done since. As the Oxford Anglophile and Progressivephile Melissa Harris-Perry has said on MSNBC, she is adding to a multi-generational movement. Lean Forward was their motto.
This is war. Obama is a general of those who wish to transform America. By transform both he and others mean to destroy America. Transformation, by definition, is destruction. It matters not what they see for afterward, which is not good, but the act in and of itself is to destroy what is there and to cast off all of those ideas and structures that they consider outdated. The constitution is one document that many say is outdated and Obama has said that it is constraining and is a negative document, not a positive document as he has said the Soviet constitution was. Obama believes in the government having rights of the government to do things as the Soviet Constitution contained. This is contrary to the US limitation of government with the rights all vested in the people.
The Republican party better be concerned about vote fraud. I wonder if that consent decree to NOT look at vote fraud By Democrats because it is racist to do so is still in effect. If so we need some more of those (black mostly?) veterans who during an attempt to fix an election in Athens (?) Georgia after WW2 used weapons from the National Guard Armory to arm themselves and surrounded the sheriff’s office where all of the ballot boxes had been taken to be “specially“ counted to make sure their current bosses won the election. The boxes were retrieved and the ballots counted publicly. The bosses lost.
There is great challenge now. Musch opportunity.
Like Zero in the movie The Grand Budapest hotel, I now have nothing of value to lose. I am ready for the war. “When in the Course of human events, …”
Also i have not said this much at all lately. It just is what they say to all others except back at them.
DEATH TO ISLAM.
And I was going to keep this short. Another plan gone astray.
I am beginning to see Chris clearly, lately, as the ‘Samuel Adams’ of our time, and you all know how important he was in our history since The founders.
You can toss in Mike VanderBoegh, David Codrea and Matt Bracken there, too. Lots of voices telling the truth in a world that, for the most part, no longer wishes to hear it.
I wish.Those guys do the work.I’m just an entertainer.
You sell yourself short, my friend, Muir. VERY short, indeed.
A lot of people say that Trump is “just an entertainer” and look how much he’s managed to shake things up, even without being President.
What I am not, and will never be, is a slave. Not while I draw breath and have Ammo. Bill Whittle made a comment (Stratosphere Lounge, #105, IIRC) how one advantage is they always “jump the gun,” instead of waiting to where they have a near-complete advantage ina coming conflict, they go early, and unwittingly gin up the resistance that defeats them. Hitler, as example, went too soon. Another ten years, and England would have rolled over and given up. He was right on the French, wrong on the English. Of course, there aren’t any guarantees, and we need to build up our side as well to have a chance to prevail.
Your opening sentence brings to mind the words of a far wiser man than I. That great orator, Patrick Henry said it better than you or I or even Chris could (Although, in his own way, our Mr. Muir is very eloquent, even elegant). On 23 March, 1775 (less than a month before Lexington, Concord and the “shot heard round the world) Henry spoke these words, Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!
(You can read his whole speech here:http://www.history.org/almanack/life/politics/giveme.cfm)
A great-granfather of mine was grabbed off the road as a child in his native land, put in chains and stuck on a boat. He was denied his language, his faith and his freedom. Contrary to the perception that only certain skin colors are enslaved, he was Irish. To his dying day, he was thankful to have escaped enslavement when he jumped ship; and was a staunch supporter of liberty and freedom as a naturalized American citizen.
Lincoln freed the slaves and the Left wants everyone (but their anointed) to be enslaved for the “GREATER GOOD “.
Ma’am, Lincoln had no authority to free anyone. There was no force of law behind his proclamation. He only did it to PO the CSA. PLUS his proclamation only applied to the slaves held in CSA member states. There was at least one slave state which fought for the union and his proclamation did nothing to alter the status in that state whatsoever.
Bottom line: That treasonous, oath breaking bastard, Lincoln, FREED NO ONE! His one and only goal was to restore the union which he valued ABOVE the Constitution.
All correct what Otto says.
He even says so in a letter to Horace Greeley in 1862.
(a snipet from that letter)
My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that. What I do about slavery, and the colored race, I do because I believe it helps to save the Union; and what I forbear, I forbear because I do not believe it would help to save the Union.
“if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that.” and this IS what he did.
“Why the War was not about Slavery” Vol. I
Donald W. Livingston
The North’s hippocracy:
Slave trade in New England from 1638 to the 1860’s.
Boston slave trade started in 1644.
1 in 4 families in Connecticut owned slaves.
There were slave plantations throughout New England.
Rhode Island – 1 in 14 was a slave and half of all of the Ministers owned slaves.
Glad he made it. As others have said it is really sad that so many Americans want to get rid of the freedoms that were fought so hard for. I constantly point things out to my two kids about the problems around the world – and here – and why we need to fight for them.
As to Anatoly’s history I am hoping that Chris will elaborate at some point in the future(?)
My guess is that he is young enough to not have had to join the Party to become a pilot for the Russian Republic.
Good grades, good attitude towards fliying and a respectful attitude towards his instructors might have been his ticket to the skies.
Well, I understand your concerns and fears but you forget one little thing.
Arrogance is a terrible thing to carry around in your pocket. Arrogance will lead you to make mistakes and miss your errors. I can’t think of a better way to damage and maybe even decimate the decomposing libretard population than to give them shrillary for 3 years. We run out of money, our country is attacked from both outside and inside again and again, and who will defend US(A)?
We will. You and I will. While those morons are weeping in their closets and trembling in fear, or kissing the stinking feet of their executioners before the video is shot of their heads leaving their bodies, we’ll show up and shoot the executioners. I’ll be wearing a T-shirt with shrillary’s head in a circle with that red slant mark across it.
Do you guys have any idea how much damage has been done to US farmland by the demand (by the White House) for increasing ethanol in gas? L-O-T-S of damage. And now that mom-jeans jackass in the Oval Office wants to add more of it, because we need to stretch the supply of surplus oil.
There is nothing more dangerous for people who are out of touch with reality than getting their wishes granted.
May they get what they wish… and regret it for eternity.
The Administration’s insistence on calling ISIS Daesh is yet another example of the liberal belief that you can change reality by changing words.
