Today kids are learning a valuabe civics lesson. Government won’t do anything for people, without a gun to its head.

OH THE IRONY. But Poe’s Law probably governs in high schools too. For the same reason irony doesn’t compute on social media: adolescent frontal lobes.

I don’t have much use for guns myself, but it’s obvious to me that when the corporate media gets behind a public issue like gun control, it can’t be in the people’s interest. AT ALL. Since when have even Big Dems supported anything righteous?

The news usually blacks out calls for social reform. Unless it’s the common people you’re asking to disempower, not corporate hegemony. Today the press is platforming the protests with live feeds and biographical highlights of the youthful petitioners. This is MANUFACTURED DISSENT. Nickelodeon suspended its television programming to accommodate, in essence, a protracted commercial break. A young person’s choice to “walk out” from school today is not rebellion, it’s conformity. To the astroturf. Get a load of the profiling of the Florida students, portrayed as movement organizers! Their role more resembles contestants for America’s Got Talent: the Protest Edition.

The #March14 school walkouts across the country only confirm the mendacious education our children are getting.

Gee kids, when you graduate, to no job, no health care, no environmental protections, no economic rights, maybe even no home, AND a leveled playing field of NO PRIVILEGE for any of you, you kids are going to need guns.

    Well, Eric, here’ one:

    You should be commended for your discernment and, I might add, courage. I say discernment because sound political analysis based on recognition of power-relationships is becoming rare now that what passes for politics consists mainly of posturing and sloganizing—“meme”-slinging. And I say courage because I am sure not a few of your readers expected from you the kind of glowing report published by the “greens” of the Independent, and must think what you wrote “deplorable.”

    The Anti-Gun molls hate the ham actor in the White House. So what? Even self-declared fascists hate the creep—perhaps more than anyone else since it must pain them that their superior Nordic brains failed to grasp the impossibility of their National Socialist Revolution being accomplished through a depleted billionaire whose daughter keeps a glatt kosher kitchen. Antipathy to the POTUS or, better said, BLOATUS, is no cause to endorse a silly charade that was, no doubt, from the start orchestrated to serve Imperialist purposes.

    Since your weapon of choice—apart from the Luger— is the blade, you may not perceive why current anti-gun propaganda places so much emphasis on on the .223/5.56mm NATO semi-automatic AR-15. That is because it is the commercial version of the standard selective fire military and police rifles. It is also the weapon in which large numbers of civilian men have been trained. In a revolutionary situation, one does well to use firearms of the same calibre as those of the oppressor. Until the drastic legislation of 1919, gun control in Great Britain was kept to a sensible minimum. What prompted the trampling of a traditional right of Englishmen was—as the parliamentary debates show—the ruling-class’ fear of Bolshevism, not gun-related crime. A special concern was the possession of military weapons by civilians. In 1940, most Britons realized this legislation had been a big mistake. In Italy, and, so far as I know, other continental countries a civilian is not allowed to possess a weapon of military calibre.

    Any sensible person should know that disarming the people down to the very last hat pin, as in Britain—and that is the ultimate purpose of this ballyhoo—will not prevent things like the shoot-up at the yeshiva in Florida.

    I’ve heard these people say that arms dealers ought to be held liable for the misuse of their products by spree-killers. (Not by military and police, of course. “They protect us.”) “What the NRA needs are some lawsuits!” But what about the pharmaceutical companies that manufacture the “psychotherapeutic” drugs commonly found in autopsies of the carcasses of the defunct gunmen? What about the splatter-film manufacturers of Hollywood? The gore-game boys of Silicon Valley?

    The Imperialists, frantic because little brown men armed with stuff you can get at any gun show have delayed the establishment of Legree Plantations International, Inc., are increasing their effort to round up, pen, brand, and geld everybody within their immediate reach. Part of that is an emotive campaign against civil liberties. It has affected the thinking of both Left and Right, exactly as intended.

    Although Bush & Co. ran the Bill of Rights through the paper shredder, a few scraps personal freedom remain in the form of the 1st and 2nd Amendments. They must be defended. Is it too “Tea Party” to say that the ballot of last resort is the bullet? Or that Free Speech for Peter Brimelow is Free Speech for Eric Verlo?

    Let’s face it. The smug pussy hats who emerged from their gated communities to shriek inane slogans, dragging along their hapless offspring, value neither freedom nor social justice. The values of their class are peace, comfort, conformity, and “safety.”

    As for “safety,” I’ll take a hat-pin over a cell phone any day. But a gun is best.

    „Waffen in den Händen der herschenden Klasse sind Waffen gegen das werktätige Volk!“

    –Ernst Thälmann

    (“Weapons in the hands of the ruling-class are weapons aimed at the working class!)

    Reading over what I just wrote I noticed the reference to “Nordic Brains.” No slurr intended. R e a l Nordics are pretty smart cookies, especially Norskies. Or course Danes are smart, too, and also s l y. No matter, we Mediterraneans are the real geniuses.

    Once again, Blademan—touché!

    One note about how the NRA and related anti-American zealots put into their responses is FEAR. Of course the threats they make, very real terrorism, but also the fear they hold in their very essence of their being. Fear so hardened they won’t come out into the streets without having their weapons locked and loaded, safety off, IN DIRECT CONTRADICTION OF THEIR STATED SAFETY RULES. The numbnuts in Arlington Texas parading around with fully armed fully auto Assault Weapons (a term they refuse to recognize) waving them around with no concern for their fellow citizens. And of course their selves. The Safety Rules they swear to obey are a clone of the military rules. If you leave your weapon unattended in the Army, no matter how many safes, locks and watch dogs, if it ain’t guarded by a Human, you get time in the stockade. Guys who have a lot of guns and ammo are supposed to Have Them Guarded. Take a gun on post and see what happens. If it’s got the magazine in, even without ammunition, you Go Directly To Jail Do Not Pass Go Do Not get $200. If you’re lucky enough to get a second chance (after doing the jail time) the second offense is usually punishment is more jail time and a Bad Conduct discharge. In small words an Alt-White person would un der stand, have ammo in your gun or in your pocket, car or anywhere near your gun is big no-no.
