“For when they say, ‘Peace and safety!’ then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.” (1Thessalonians 5:3)
“They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” (Benjamin Franklin 1775)[i]
THE MARCH FOR NATIONAL SUICIDE
An ‘Untouchable’ mob of 500,000 invaded Washington last week to demand more gun control. ‘Untouchable’ because at their head were the student / survivor / victims of the Parkland shooting. With David Hogg, their foul-mouthed, profanity spewing, spiritual leader the participants in last Saturday’s rally uttered inanities and advocated irrational solutions to stop the gun violence. The students while sincere were often unwittingly used by anti-gun organizations.
This from Breitbart. “The same progressive organizations that launched the Women’s March to protest the election of President Donald Trump planned, promoted and scripted the National School Walkout on Wednesday where middle and high school students were asked to walk out of school for 17 minutes to ‘honor’ the 17 victims.” Millions of dollars were spent by various organizations – a completely unplanned event, I’m sure![ii] In some places across the country, including Washington D.C., that walkout turned into marches and protests to demand “gun control” and to demonize support for the Second Amendment, including blaming the National Rifle Association for “gun violence” in schools. The article went on to finger Planned Parenthood and the George Soros funded Move On.Org.[iii] The protests targeted ‘assault weapons,’ background checks and the Second Amendment to the Constitution. It got so bad that retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens called for the repeal of the Second Amendment as a way to get at the NRA.[iv] But there was something just a little too slick about the whole thing. Immediately after the shooting the wheels began to roll for the protest in Tallahassee. Then came Washington with millions of dollars pouring in. This is nothing less than a very thinly disguised gun grab. David Hogg admitted the real intent of the movement when he announced: “We are here to start a revolution,” accompanied by his obvious disdain for opponents and symbolism reminiscent of Nazi Germany.
The irony of it all is that with the exception of the background checks, the measures generally called for by the protesters would not have stopped the shooting in Parkland, Florida. It is good people with guns that stop bad people with guns. That’s just the way the world works. Case in point: the school shooting in Maryland. The shooter in that case, who had shot his girlfriend in the head and one other student in the leg, took his own life, when confronted by school security.[v] I myself was shot during a holdup of a convenient store in which 4 illegal guns were used. The laws were already in effect. No new law would have prevented my shooting. The next week, my cousin’s restaurant was held up, and the perpetrator was shot – and stopped – by a patron with a legal gun. Making more guns illegal will not slow down the crime wave. When weapons were taken away in other countries – as well as in parts of the US – murder and shootings went up. Evidence developed by the University of Pittsburgh finds that 80% of crimes are committed by people illegally in possession of those firearms.
Furthermore, the disarming of a people is always dangerous to their survival. That was a lesson learned by our Founding Fathers. That tyranny follows disarmament of a population has been proven true by the historical experience of the 20th century. In a piece written for the National Institutes of Health, Miguel Faria Jr wrote: “Civilian disarmament has always preceded genocide in authoritarian and totalitarian states. Repressive governments that conducted genocide and mass killings of their own populations have first always disarmed their citizens.”[vi] This has resulted in mass murders, sometimes spanning decades that have killed an unfathomable number of deaths. The USSR took the lives of over 61 million of their own people. Mao’s China checked in at about 35 million. Nazi Germany; nearly 21 million. Japan of the 1930’s & 40s; close to 6 million. Add in Cambodia, Vietnam, Turkey, Poland and Pakistan with all over a million. And there others.[vii] The double irony in all of this is that Hogg and his cohorts are marching to take away their own constitutional rights. They are endangering themselves and their country for the sake of some notion that government can provide them security. They are marching for national suicide.[viii] Russian Communist Dictator Nikolai Lenin used a phrase to describe people like that: “Useful idiots!”
But this is about so much more than gun control. This is the advance guard of a revolutionary movement. It is the latest hand being played by the Deep State, the Radical Left, the anti-Trumpers, and their New World Order handlers that really call the shots. And if you are a Christian, a conservative, a patriot, a supporter of the 2nd Amendment, oppose abortion, a Libertarian, an advocate for biblical truth, or a believer in a nuclear family with just one representative of the two sexes – then you are a target. This New Revolutionary War is being waged by the Deep State operatives – long entrenched in our government in places like the FBI and the State Department and the CIA….and some even snuck into the President Trump’s administration. But as we see, with the rash of new firings, that swamp is now being drained. But it seems such slow going and many on our side are discouraged at the rate of progress. [That Hillary Clintons, with all her baggage, seems free of legal responsibility is especially irksome. There are the missing emails, the Uranium One scandal, and the Clinton Foundation, the FISA Court / FBI / Steele Dossier issue to name just a few.]
Regarding the ultimate triumph of justice, Dave Janda of Operation Freedom is perhaps a little more optimistic than most of patriots. “When we are talking about people like the Clintons, Obama, the Bush family and Soros, we are talking about middle-level people. These are puppets of the globalist syndicate. These people are in the Rothschild and Rockefeller axis. In order for our country to get back on its feet, taking down the Clintons, Obama and Soros is not enough because that creature will come back to life again. They need to take down the entities above those middle-level players. That’s what is taking so long…. The ultimate goal it is to take this up to a level to take out the Obamas, Clintons, Bush family and Soros, and then apply the necessary pressure to go to the top.”[ix] Janda believes it is in process of happening right now.
While the darkness may seem overwhelming, we can only do our part. It is God that is in control. And as in all things, we MUST trust Him in this matter. Daniel 9:21-22. “He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise And knowledge to those who have understanding. He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, And light dwells with Him.” Amen and Amen!!
