Progressives In Action

When Rush Limbaugh died, someone on Wikipedia wrote that his immortal soul had returned to Hell.  The hatred of self-styled Progressives for people on the Right isn't new.  When I was involved with the U of M Objectivist Club, we had several lecturers from the Ayn Rand Institute.  One of the lecturers was Dr. Peter Schwartz on the subject of Environmentalism.  The club put up several posters advertising the lecture.  Some of those posters were replaced by Leftists with posters with obscenities scrawled on them, including swastikas.

My wealth is spear and sword, the stout shield which protects my flesh; with this I plough, with this I reap, with this I tread the sweet wine of the grape, with this I am the entitled master of the serfs.

 -- Cretan Warrior (Quoted by John Keegan in A HISTORY OF WARFARE, page 242)

The parasite basically views the productive population as a form of livestock.  Therefore anyone who objects to this status or otherwise resists the moral and legal primacy of the parasite is identified as a diseased animal and is dealt with as such.  Sometimes the whole hominid herd is subjected to culling, as the Ukrainians were under Stalin, Lenin’s command to kill the Kulaks weren't aberrations, they're simply instances of the normal behavior of parasites in power.  Hatred is normal for Leftists.

“We must teach our children to hate. Hatred is the basis of communism.”

 --V.I. Lenin, 1923

We must understand that no one is entitled to a damned thing, we need to realize that Woke Culture isn't awake and Political Correctness isn't correct.

Some Conservatives don't get it.  

The idea that we on the Right march in lock step is so ridiculous that only a Leftist could believe it.

I strongly disagree with other Conservatives.  Some of them object to Chinese Communist extermination of the Muslim Urgurs.  But Islam is actually a doctrine of murder and oppression.  Islam is an ideology that doesn't allow the right to a Human existence.  The wielding of deadly force against an ethnic minority is cause for alarm, the death of opponents isn’t.  We on the Right side of the political isle must understand the victim of my enemy can also be my enemy too.  One exercises rational judgement on a person’s beliefs, not a non-volitional factor.  From my perspective it looks like a bunch of murderers killing murderers, so what?  Would we on the Right side of the political isle object to the imprisonment or murder of a group of Marxists by the CCP?

Another Step Back, Part 5

January 17, 1976
New York City, NY

The red light on the camera in the NBC studio came on.  One of consequences of the appearance of the Uptimers was that any Marxist would never be hired for cast of Saturday Night Live.

Washington, DC

The Uptimers brought back data on the Waco Massacre.  The FBI was dissolved as a result of The Reformation.  To avoid that fate the Bureau taught about the Waco Massacre.  Prior to The Reformation the common narrative was that perpetrators were the good guys.  After The Reformation the Waco Massacre was seen as act of state terror that it actually was.

Lake Tahoe, NV

The Uptimers had enough of the Andolini Crime Family.  The efforts of The Mafia to get in on the Uptimer thing were annoying.  The effort of the Andolini Crime Family was especially stridently annoying.  The platoon of Rangers that dropped on the Andolini family estate was led in person by Major Benson.  The senior NCO of the Rangers, Sergeant Major Les Keller, was also present.  The leadership of the Andolini Crime Family was wiped out by the Uptimers.

Panmunjom, Republic of Korea

The Korean peninsula was unified by force during a Chinese civil war that followed the death of Chairman Mao.  The Soviets weren't getting involved in the Korean Reunification War.  Kim Dae Jung was subsequently hanged in a public square in Seoul, Korea.  Two officers of the Korean Army examined a tree.  Did the tree need to be cut down? 

Starship Owl, Alpha Centauri System

The jump with the rebuilt hyperdrive was successful.  The crew was now examining the Alpha Centauri System.

Leftism In Action

I have a message for the ubermenschen wanna-be's of the Left:

In the immortal words of Ayn Rand: You need us, we do not need you.

Or to put it in a more common vernacular: Fuck off and die.

Statement On The Firing Of Gina Carano

The thoroughly unpleasant fact of reality is that the Disney Company (and Hollywood in general) is run by a bunch of unimaginative twerps.  It's the kind of mentality that wants to maximize profits but is unwilling to try something distinctly new or different.  Thus the glut of sequels and the ongoing cinemisation of the successful television series.  Even if the project isn't a sequel or a series adaptation, they'll still attempt to reduce risk by only combining elements that appeared to have worked in the past.  Thus The Adventures of Pluto Nash, a movie that combines the elements of Eddie Murphy, Computer Generated Imagery, with the Sci-Fi environment, and still turns out to be an unwatchable piece of crap.  (When I saw the trailer at the 2002 Convergence, my thought was, oh its Moon Zero Two: The Next Generation.)  

Question And Answer

On what grounds can those who deny The Rights of Man can claim protection the under those very same rights?
None whatsoever.

Thoughts Of The Day

They don't know what they're doing.  Instead of objectively observing the real world and thus learning how to master it.  Leftists willfully ignore the facts of reality and stumble about in a surreal fog from error to error and to ultimately stumble about from disaster to disaster.  Leftists openly state their desire to rule over the whole of Humanity and then proceed to conclusively demonstrate that they're totally unfit to do so.  Voting doesn't legitimize anything.  I'm now totally dependent on the welfare state, but as long as I'm still alive I will remain an advocate of Individual Liberty, live with it.  A difference of opinion isn't an expression of hatred, live with it.  There's a clear difference between resorting to force and responding to force.  Some people want to erase this difference.  Reality remains real no matter how many votes are cast.  There's a point where one has to think.  So what? 

What is an aristocrat?  An aristocrat appears to be a person who believes that an act of legislation forbidding the exercise of physical force to benefit themselves doesn't apply to them.  

I'm so reactionary that I believe that a non-volitional physical attribute (such as race or gender) should be politically irrelevant.

When I was a pizza delivery driver I saw a large photograph of John Kerry pasted on an automobile as it were an Eastern Orthodox Christian icon.  During the same job I saw a yard sign for Paul Wellstone attached to the wall of a union hall as it were an Eastern Orthodox Christian icon.  We’re not facing a political faction, we’re facing a cult.

We have to remember that Joe Biden is an idiot.  An intelligent person would never run as a Democrat.  We have to also remember that many Democrats regard themselves as intelligent people.

The alternative to civilized political discourse is political violence.  Many people on the Right side of the political isle (myself included) may actually be more radical than people on the Left side of the political isle.  I have an adversarial attitude when posting on the internet, live with it.

On Pacificism

I would argue that disarming isn't an action resulting from a good intention, but from a bad one.  Because an individual, or a group, can choose to obtain their survival and well being through the use of force against the productive persons or groups it's necessary for the potential victims of such violence to be armed and mentally prepared to to respond with force.  Peace is simply the absence of enemies.  It's the state of being where one isn't subject to the will of a hostile power, be it an individual, a group, or a nation.  In practice, peace can only be obtained through the forcible suppression or outright destruction of the aggressors.  To obtain peace an individual or a nation must have superior firepower and the will to use it.  In order to avoid being subject to the will of aggressors those persons or nations which disarm themselves must enter into a dependent relationship with those who remain armed.  Disarmament is therefore not an act resulting from a good intention.  At best a pacifist is a parasite.  In present practice most pacifists morally condemn the act of self defense and therefore become accessories to acts of violence carried out by aggressive individuals, groups, or nations.   In effect, they've become part of the problem.  And as a rule I favor including pacifists in the solution to the problem of aggressive violence.

Most Peace Activists don't realize that they're supporting evil people or states.

Atlas Shrugged. Ayn Rand. Penguin Group, Penguin Books USA, Inc., 375 Hudson Street, New York, NY 10014, USA. ISBN 0-451-17192-6 Paperback. vii + 1084 pages. 1957. $7.99.

Reviewed by
D. van Oort

Atlas Shrugged is the opus magnum of novelist and philosopher Ayn Rand, and is the first work of fiction to be reviewed in these pages. Its theme is the role of the mind in the affairs of man. Atlas Shrugged illustrates this dramatically and memorably by showing just why, for the first time in history, the men of ability should go on strike against the advocates of incompetence and the purveyors of envy, and what will happen when they do.

"Who is John Galt?" Throughout Ayn Rand's brilliant expose of the decline of the industrialized west disguised as a novel, this is the question that pervades every page. "Who is John Galt?" is not a question, it is a smear spit out by every incompetent, every altruist, every hater of intellect who demands to know how competent men dare to be competent, how selfish men dare to despise altruism, and how intelligent men dare hold the willfully ignorant in contempt. "Who is John Galt?" is the unspoken demand by the mob that men of competence, ability and intelligence serve them as slaves. "Who is John Galt?" is the sneer muttered by stock-yard animals who cringe before the individual who denies the collectivist-altruist premise, "From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs."

The heroes of Atlas Shrugged answer the altruist-collectivist demand for their servitude by refusing them the one thing the altruist-collectivists cannot shackle--their minds. This resistance is beautifully stated by the hero of Atlas Shrugged, John Galt, when the collectivists demand that he return to "do something" to save a world they are willfully destroying:

"We are evil, according to your morality. We have chosen not to harm you any longer. We are useless, according to your economics. We have chosen not to exploit you any longer. We are dangerous and to be shackled, according to your politics. We have chosen not to endanger you, nor to wear the shackles any longer. We are only an illusion, according to your philosophy. We have chosen not to blind you any longer and have left you free to face reality--the reality you wanted, the world as you see it now, a world without mind."

Atlas Shrugged is set in a despicable near future, one much nearer today than when the book was first published in 1957. From the beginning, Atlas Shrugged was denounced and slandered by critics from both the socialist liberal appeaser and conservative Buckley-ite compromiser schools. Precisely because its theme is the role of the mind; because its scenario is a world increasingly of, by, and for the mindless; because it illustrates so beautifully the types of ideologies that lead to power blackouts in New York City and the creativity that leads to the discovery of new types of energy; because it predicted events and policies that have occurred since, and because it is the story of the most intractable of resisters on strike against those very ideologies, events and policies that are choking the life out of us today--this book is not dated. Indeed, it is prophetic. Atlas Shrugged is coming of age with a vengeance.

Throughout the novel, John Galt, defying every disgusting premise of altruism and collectivism travels the country on a mission of sedition to recruit true capitalists to his strike. In response to demands that he return with "the men of the mind" he defiantly states:

"All the men who have vanished, the men you hated, yet dreaded to lose, it is I who have taken them away from you. Do not attempt to find us. We do not choose to be found. Do not cry that it is our duty to serve you. We do not recognize such duty. Do not cry that you need us. We do not consider need a claim. Do not cry that you own us. You don't. Do not beg us to return. We are on strike, we, the men of the mind."

As with any legitimate work of fiction, Atlas Shrugged projects an ideal. So why would the ideal productive genius, Francisco d'Anconia, destroy his copper mines and become a useless playboy? Why would a brilliant young philosopher, Ragnar Danneskjold, sail the high seas as a pirate, waylaying ships transporting looted capital to various "People's States"? Why would the most brilliant of them all, John Galt, whose greatest invention is looted by the unworthy heirs to the once-great company he worked for, wage a clandestine war against the world by removing the men most hated by it? Why would the heroine, Dagny Taggart, after struggling against the combined efforts of the world to destroy her transcontinental railroad, vow to kill this man, and upon breaching the strikers' security, meet him and fall in love with him?

And what kind of new ideology would they forge from the ashes of two thousand years of mysticism, altruism and collectivism? What will be the greatest gift they give to the world, they, the ideal who are only concerned with themselves? This is their gift:

"We have granted you everything you demanded of us, we who had always been the givers, but have only now understood it. We have no demands to present to you, no terms to bargain about, no compromise to reach. You have nothing to offer us. WE DO NOT NEED YOU."

Atlas Shrugged is a long book, a great read for a long winter. But be warned; Atlas Shrugged is much like these pages it is reviewed on, because not everyone can handle it, and not everyone would like for you to read it. In spite of that, it is proper that Atlas Shrugged repeatedly tops the Book of the Month Club's bestseller list, because the type of person who reads this book is the type who makes his decisions on his own, for his own reasons, and for his own benefit.

If you have reason to seek a real literary masterpiece, and if you think you can benefit from a genuine ideological challenge, follow the tale of a few great men and women in a mindless world of "People's States" and cringing appeasers, as they launch the ultimate resistance movement for the ultimate reason, and stop the motor of the world.

Atlas Shrugged will reward you like no other book known to this reviewer. It will do so with entertainment, suspense, one hell of a premise, and a few years worth of things to think about.

But don't take my word for it. Judge for yourself.

Atlas Shrugged may be ordered from: Second Renaissance Books, 143 West St/PO Box 1988, New Milford, CT 06776. 1-800-729-6149 (orders only).

Leftism In Action

Why do I constantly feel like I'm tied up and gagged in the back seat of a car driven by someone who insists on driving on the wrong side of the road and who responds to the appearance of oncoming traffic by denying that it exists and stomping on the accelerator pedal?

We need to realize that Woke Culture isn't awake and Political Correctness isn't correct.  We need to realize that the other side is cheating by our rules and respond accordingly.  We need to realize that the other side values political power and will stop at nothing to obtain it.  We need to realize that to the other side no act is too vile.

We need to realize that John Dewey, the creator of the American educational system, was one of them.  Using our children to subvert our nation isn't too foul for them.  We need to extract Dewey's influence from the education of the children.

Update 1439 CST:

The occupant of apartment 2312 continues to make noise.  He apparently doesn't care about the effect he's having on other people.

Thoughts Of The Day

Our opponents call themselves Progressives but in fact they're Reactionaries.  The latest idea they've had originated in the Stone Age.  The idea was simply beating up people and taking their stuff.  The Left can't deal with reality because in reality they're the bad guys.  They're constantly trying to live off the work of others thus they have to control their "livestock" by force.  Since reason tells us that such behavior is morally intolerable they're left with emotional whining as their means of justifying their actions and allowing themselves to feel good about it.  Any refusal to accept the emotional bullshit and obey the self appointed masters is automatically translated on the emotional level as something to the effect of "die motherfucker!"

Inherent in Socialist doctrines implicit premise that the mere human being is an animal without a mind, or a soul, and thus without rights.  It should be treated as such by the ideal Socialist state.  If there's anyone who has a right to be offended at such public utterances it's the victims of Socialism.

Of course the Socialist believer is going to be offended when the truth is spoken.  Socialism is in practice the destruction of persons and entire societies as a whole.  Socialist  doctrines are the lies that the Socialist must tell himself in order to avoid the self realization that he's in fact a thief and a murderer.  Of course the truth is going to hurt their feelings.  So what?  A Socialist isn't bothered in the slightest when one of them publicly incites a mob to murder elected officials and their families because the officials are upholding and defending the Constitution to which they have sworn.  The Socialist sees this as normal and acceptable behavior.  But because the Socialists can't, or won't, believe in a higher standard of behavior.  They will freak out every time they see a bunch of farmers or other citizens get together for some target practice in fear that this is the mob that's coming after them.

In order to live each man require accurate information in order to make correct moral decisions. Valid knowledge is like food and oxygen, a necessary requirement of human life.  Because the range of the senses of each individual is limited, men have through the practice of verbal (and later written) communication and used communication with each other as a means of extending the range of their own senses.  Thus improving their own prospects for survival.  Societies that value knowledge will generally tend to be more economically and technologically advanced than those societies that devalue knowledge.  Whenever a military confrontation occurs between Rational states and those ruled by the Irrational, the Rational as a general rule, will prevail in the struggle.  As we see our own right to life as sacred, then we must see the Truth as nothing less than sacred.  Those who demand that we ignore the Truth or would forcibly prevent us from learning the Truth should be treated as nothing less than Enemies of Mankind in General, to be dealt will as wolves are. 

What we need to get through our collective heads right now is the fact that the age of politics as usual is over.  No more compromise, no more deals. no more bipartisanship.  There must be a radical clean up of the mess that The Left has created.  The partisans of Socialism must be systematically removed from our public institutions.  If we're to have a future as the core nation of our civilization we must make a special effort to clean out the Augean Stables that our educational establishment has become under the tutelage of The Left.  We must with volume and clarity tell the spoiled brats who imagine themselves to be the heirs of Marx and Lenin to grow up or get out.  Of course, if those idiots would just die, it would be nice too.  At this point it wouldn't be nice, it would be absolutely necessary. 

Is Free Speech an example of Hate Speech?  Only if the opponent of facts hates the truth.

Rush H. Limbaugh III has died of lung cancer at the age of 70.  I used to listen to Limbaugh on KSTP-AM 1500 when I worked at a parking ramp in downtown Minneapolis along with publishing online and contributing to The Resister.   The initial Wikipedia article mentioned his immortal soul going back to Hell, the pejorative has since been deleted.

A Moron I Encoutered

Once upon a time ago I purchased a coffee cup at a gun show with this image:

I took it to my place of work, at the time I was the security officer on the night shift at the former Midway Hospital in Saint Paul and it was converted into an office building for the Health East Care System.  Apparently someone saw the coffee cup with the image on it and felt threatened by it.  Can you believe that?  The site supervisor for the security department had to ask me to remove the cup from the site.  And we let these morons vote?

Thoughts For The Day

A proper Atheist accepts responsibility for their own life.  The concept of the Collective Will appears to be an excuse for a person to not accept responsibility for their own life.  The concept of the Collective Will appears to be a substitute for the concept of God.  Atheists have a bad reputation because some of them openly support tyrants. 

The idea of a steady-state terrestrial climate is pure nonsense.

When one fights for their own life, ONE NEVER USES THE QUEENSBERRY RULES.

Bad people often think of themselves as the good guys.  Might (or in cases of Biden and Harris, the appearance of same) doesn't make right.

On Democracy

I've disparaged Democracy numerous times on this blog.


Democratic government is a contradiction in terms.  To govern is to politically restrain.  Democracy allows or excuses unrestrained political action.  Everyone who attended infantry basic training at Fort Benning (a.k.a. the Benning School For Boys) was taught that there's no such thing as an effective excuse.

The claim of Joe Biden to be democratically elected as President of the United States is complete nonsense.  The legal removal of Biden from office or his assassination won't solve the problem.  The actual problem is a culture that holds the rights of individuals in contempt.  A single removal or assassination won't solve that.  The fencing around the national capitol building and the deployment of soldiers during the "inauguration" of Joe Biden was completely unnecessary.

The legal murder of Socrates by a Democratic vote is clear evidence that the Democratic process is wrong.  The gain of political power of Adolf Hitler by a Democratic process is clear evidence that the Democratic process is wrong.

Thoughts Of The Day

Everyone dies, but not everyone lives.  Some people don't understand the concept of volition.

The monsters are never hiding under the bed, they can be seen in the bathroom mirror.  Killing a member of Anti-Fa or BLM isn't an act of murder, it's an act of self defense.  A non-volitional physical attribute should be politically irrelevant.  Some people on the Left side of the political isle apparently don't understand this.

Enemies Of Humanity (like big name Democrats) should be hanged slowly with a steel wire.  They should suffer, but our Constitution clearly forbids cruel punishment.  But they (like big name Democrats) deny the validity of our Constitution.

If there's one thing we leaned through direct experience in Twentieth Century it's that Peace is never priceless.  The price of Peace is never paid by any pacifist.  The price of Peace is paid by the members of armed forces.  I once a member of the United States Army when pacifists were banging their drums at the main gate of Fort Benning to feel good about themselves.

I was fired from Pizza Hut Delivery for not following instructions.  Why?  Because the training manager and management in general were idiots.

Once force is openly used against those who speak out against the Left then the gloves will come off and force WILL be openly used against the Left.  Once the Left openly repudiates the rules for living in a civil society then their victims will no longer see themselves as subject to those same rules.  Or to put it another way to the Left, break the rules of civil society and you will leave us no choice but to break you.  It's called a civil war.  Cars with bumper stickers, tee-shirts, and other examples of open posturing will make target identification very easy.  What part of "Liberty or Death" does the Left persist in not understanding?  It's generally considered to be bad form to advocate violence against someone simply because of their political views.  But if some Leftist thug finds himself staring at the muzzle of a rifle it is because the stupid Leftist put himself there. 

Once books are burned, people will eventually be burned.

Ideas In Action

One of the ideas gifted to us by George Orwell is the concept of Newspeak.

What is Newspeak?

From my perspective Newspeak is where words are used in opposition of their actual meaning.

Orwell used as a fictional example where the INGSOC party proclaimed that Freedom was Slavery and that War was Peace.  We're seeing this today where those persons who proclaim themselves to be progressive are in fact reactionaries.  The only people who have a valid claim to being progressive are an insurance company.

Those who proclaim themselves to be Liberal are in fact enemies of Liberty.  Those who proclaim themselves to be good guys are in fact bad people.  We saw this historically with the membership of the KKK, the CPSU, the NSDAP, the Khmer Rouge, The BATF, Al Quida, etc.  We're seeing this today with the membership of Anti-Fa and BLM.

We need to understand that Karl Marx didn't work and his ideas don't work.  We need to understand that Karl Marx didn't invent Socialism.  We need to understand that Marxism has a total failure rate.


We need to understand that Anti-Fa and Black Lives Matter are Collectivist groups.  We need to understand that Black Lives Matter is a Racial Collectivist group along with needing to be identified as and dealt with as such.

Thoughts For The Day

Auschwitz was built and operated by altruists.  It's the people with an ego, and thus a conscience, that defied the National Socialist agenda of racial extermination.  

Most members of Anti-Fa wouldn't know a Fascist if they saw one in the bathroom mirror.

It doesn't matter what anyone chooses to believe, Reality is always there.  "A is A," live with it.  There are those who state that the philosophy of Objectivism is immoral.  My response would require the use of obscene language.  I'm often accused of disparaging Democracy.  Hello?  Reality is real, and the facts aren't subject to a majority vote.  Might doesn't make Right, live with it.

We're now living in a dictatorship.  In ruling by executive order, Joe Biden has effectively become a dictator.  There's the censorship thing too.  Joe Biden's fate has already been decided, he needs to hang from neck until dead.  Why don't we assassinate Joe Biden and/or Kamala Harris?  Because their assassinations won't solve the problem.  The actual problem is a culture that holds the rights of indivduals in contempt.  The assassination of Biden and/or Harris won't solve that problem.

When a difference in opinion is criminalized a civil war is inevitable.

Admission of ignorance is the beginning of wisdom.

I'm old enough to remember when Yoko Ono actually sang on an Apple Records album.

Another Step Back, Part 4

January 15, 1976
Washington, DC, United States of America.

President Richard Milhous Nixon hated the Uptimers.

The Uptimers made numerous changes on their own.  Other people made their own changes.  The Black Monday massacre, the slaughter of students at the Holland Elementary School in North East Minneapolis, including the future author of The Concept Of Government, by some Black Panthers.  The Uptimers had their own response to these atrocities.  The Black Panthers and the Democratic Party at the federal level were exterminated by the Uptimers.  The Uptimers lasered from orbit every home owned by George Soros, they really hated him.  Senator Edward Kennedy was tied up and placed in the back seat of a used Oldsmobile.

"Say hello to Mary Jo for me."  Evelyn Boatman said as he shoved the used Oldsmobile out the back of a lander.

The Uptimers exterminated several groups, including The Church of Scientology.  The Uptimers also hated the Communist Chinese, even more than they hated the Democrats.  President Nixon would never visit Chairman Mao in Peking as he was killed because of the Uptimers.

Thoughts For The Day

To us who aren't under the influence of Kant and in fact value our lives, a call for an act of murder has to be taken literally.  There's simply no other morally valid option.  Punishing a man for an act he didn't commit is unjust.   Imprisoning a man for speaking the truth is tyrannical.   Disarming the citizens, who're the sovereign authority of the nation, is treason.

Everyone ages and eventually dies.  Unfortunately I'm condemned to witness the beginning of the Second American Civil War.  What some people will call the Second American Civil War The Reformation.  In fact we're in the opening stages of the Second American Civil War.  Those who walk the path of power are destructive and have to be destroyed, there's simply no alternative.

George Orwell wrote 1984 as a warning, not as an instruction manual. 

Antisemitism in politics is the practical equivalent of a dead canary in a coal mine, I can't say this often enough.  We have to see that Antisemitism is a symptom of a deeper philosophical problem.  We should treat Antisemites as the Enemies of Humanity they actually are.

Paulette Cooper and Shelly Miscavige were punished for simply doing their jobs, this is wrong.  Revolutions happen (real revolutions, not Marxist ones) because the state does something wrong.  Treating Scientology as a valid religion is clearly wrong.

The French used to have a positive military reputation before June of 1940, the Dien Bien Phu thing didn't help either.

Some people are complaining about the Communist Chinese treatment of some Muslims.  Uh, no.  When oppressors are fighting oppressors we should just stay out of way.

Some Liberals can't get a cup of coffee right.

Thoughts For The Day

You need to look at your own actions.  Perhaps you're the problem.

I found though direct experience as a pizza and taxi driver that Democrats didn't tip.  Those people don't identify what's necessary to be good, they just want to feel good.  Many of them believe that because they're Democrats that they're automatically good and therefore they don't have to tip anyone.

To Joe Biden and his political comrades progress consists of disarming the citizen body, of denying the rights of free citizens and instead treating those rights as state granted privileges while imposing increasing restrictions on the acts of speech, peaceful assembly, association, commerce, and worship.  The political state toward which Biden and his political comrades, in both the Congress and the Courts, are propelling America is a form of despotism similar to that found in Communist states such as Cuba, North Korea, China, and Vietnam.

(And if you really want to have fun, try comparing the platform of Biden’s party to the twenty five point program of the National Socialist German Workers Party, sans the aggressive military and race planks.)

Instead of being the party of Democracy, Biden and his political comrades are in fact the party of despotism. When they object to the overthrow of a foreign dictatorship they're simply showing that they care for and have compassion for their ideological kindred.  If anything, the foundation of their political philosophy has not progressed beyond the moment when for the first time a wandering band of nomads came upon a community of farmers and instead of learning to farm and settling down themselves chose to subjugate the farmers and live off their labors.

Although the methods of predatory subjugation have improved over the millennia, Joe Biden and his political comrades are in my view no more than stone age savages.  They're hazards to us, our families, and our nation.  It's about time that they're dealt with as such.  If I had anything to say to a person with a shred of decency it's this, walk away from the Democratic Party, right now.  Republicans should walk away from the Republican Party.  (Such as Senators Ted Cruz and Rand Paul.)  (I've made a proposal.)

Can we now do away with the polite fiction that the Democratic Party is a legitimate political faction and start treating it like the gang of traitors and thieves that it really is?

In Stock

Once upon a time ago about the time I was posting the ASCII text versions of The Resister on Usenet I bought an AK-47 chambered in 5.56 NATO.  It had the thumb hole stock mandated at the time by our masters in Washington.  As a former combat rifleman I took it upon myself to properly zero in the sights on the weapon.  As I was doing this at the Moon Valley range down in Eden Prairie I was rudely interrupted.  It appeared that a scraggly young man wanted to sell me a folding stock for the AK-47.  I said no.  He repeated his offer.  I repeated my refusal.  Eventually he got the point.  I actually had no interest in a folding stock for the rifle.  The folding stock for the AK-47 series rifle is copied from the MP-38/MP-40 series of machine pistols issued by the Wehrmacht.  They're inherently unstable and were used both by the Wehrmacht and the Soviets to shorten the weapon for carriage within an aircraft or armored vehicle.  An acceptable trade off for them but not for me.  Second, folding stocks at the time were illegal.  I wasn't about to ruin a weapon by installing an inferior stock simply for the sake of disobeying our self appointed masters in Washington.  The proper way to deal with a master is to air out his head.  By his demeanor and his insistence on selling the stock to my unwilling self I concluded that this fellow was a stooge for the BATF.  I refused to fall into the trap.  A simple bit of common sense can go a long way.

Thoughts Of The Day

It took less than a term for Barack Obama to replace Jimmy Carter as the worst American president.  It took less than a week foe Joe Biden to do the same thing.  (I'm so old, the United States Army was still issuing the M1 "Steel Pot." as a helmet when I was in it.) 

Those politicians who prefer to feel that they're on the side of progress (but who in fact haven't had an original idea since the Stone Age) are invariably envious of the profits made by major corporations.  So much so that at every opportunity these self styled guardians of the common worker will levy a new tax on corporate profits to the thunderous applause of the ignorant masses.  The dirty little secret that the lords of The Left and their sycophants in the Mainstream Media refuse to tell their victims is that each new tax levied on a major corporation has absolutely zero impact on corporate profits.  The fact of the matter is that taxes levied on business are part of the cost of doing business and are passed on to the consumers of goods with the services created by that business.  A tax on corporate profits is in fact a tax on you.

The National Socialists prevented us from seeing the Soviets as they actually were, a bunch of slavers and mass murderers.  

As to active opponents of national defense, apart from those creatures who sexually molest children, I think there's no one more depraved or despicable than a politically active pacifist.  But that’s a rant for another time.  What we call the Peace Movement doesn't understand reality.  Peace, Freedom, and Security, are three words rational people use for the same phenomena, the absence of someone imposing their will on them.  Rational people have no use for those who proclaim themselves to be pacifists.

When I used to write for The Resister I wrote a feature called the Moral Decision Game in which the would-be patriot insurrectionist had to deal with an anticipated moral problem.  The situation that I presented in the proposal for the feature involved unarmed pacifist demonstrators blocking a choke point.  When I showed the proposal to my landlady she asked me how she was supposed to clean the blood and gunk off of the tank treads.

I could go on about what I really think of peace activists but I'll keep it short by paraphrasing Keith Richards: I don't have a problem with shooting peace activists, I only have a problem with the police.

Conscience and Liberal are two words that don't go together.

It's Happening Again

The Holocaust wasn't a unique event.  The Holocaust (and other horrors) was the result of normal people acting normally.  Why did a particular horror happen?  There's an answer but you may not like it.  A horror happened because the perpetrators believed they were good people with their victims and opponents being evil.  We've seen this before with numerous horrors and it will happen again.  What we're dealing with are people who believe they're good people.  We have to deal with them as such no matter how horrible the things they actually do.  The National Socialists and Soviets believed themselves to be good, we're seeing the same phenomena with Anti-Fa.  Anti-Fa claims to be opposed to Fascism no matter what they actually do.  Members of Anti-Fa will believe the lies they're told regardless of the consequences.  Members of Anti-Fa claim to oppose Fascism, in fact they're what Fascists are.  Most members of Anti-Fa don't know that they're following the dictators handbook.

Those who don't remember history are a highly sought after group of followers.  We identify The Holocaust as the horrible act it actually was.  And we should be horrified.  But we're seeing The Holocaust from an objective perspective.  From the subjective perspective the perpetrators of The Holocaust saw themselves (apart from some psychopaths) as being good people doing good things with their victims and opponents as being evil.  We're seeing this again with the Marxists who make up the membership of Anti-fa.  They see themselves as being good and their victims as being evil.  I've said this before: Killing a Marxist isn't an act of murder, it's an act of self defense.  I have a warning for members of Anti-fa, when you Brownshirt someone, don't be surprised that you're treated as a Brownshirt.  I've found through direct experience that the opposition really believe they're the good guys.  If a member of Anti-fa wants to see a Totalitarian, all they have to do is look in a mirror.  Totalitarians are never hiding under the bed, they're in plain view.  For those who value power no act is too vile.  Killing a member of Anti-Fa isn't an act of murder, it's an act of self defense.  Members of Anti-fa should be engaged with aircraft like the AC-130 and A-10.

Voltaire said it: Those who believe absurdities will commit atrocities.
