Watts’ NRA ‘Hate’ Smear Part of Renewed Collectivist Effort to Discourage Truth

By David Codrea

Yet despite all the hysteria, not only didn't they shoot anybody, they didn't even threaten anyone. And note the old “outgun the police” lie being dragged out again for a new audience.
David Codrea in his natural habitat.

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- “The radicalization of America has been encouraged by the @NRA and open carry laws, which enable armed intimidation. #Charlottesville,” Bloomberg Moms Demand Action founder Shannon Watts tweeted Saturday. She was condemning the fact that some protestors chose to peaceably demonstrate while bearing arms.

The truly radical idea, of course, is that exercising an entitlement recognized in the Bill of Rights is intimidating to any but aggressors, and that Americans who do so are a threat to be neutralized, as Watts’ ”Disarm Hate” Twitter header photo suggests.

Fields

No doubt the weekend protest attracted its share of “haters,” most notably as culminated in an evidently low-hanging piece of … uh… fruit using his licensed and registered vehicle as a deadly weapon. But there’s one curious thing about alleged assailant and apparent lone wolf James Alex Fields Jr., whom the media is making sure everyone is told was “a registered Republican” — his Facebook page, where he is said to have praised both Donald Trump and Adolf Hitler has been deleted from public scrutiny. That means is all we will hear about him is what has been funneled to the media and they are parroting. The path for independent investigative journalists to see for ourselves and to pull threads on our own has been effectively blocked, so we’re now essentially dependent on those with an agenda to craft the narrative and to decide what they’re going to include in it for public consumption.

And what we see now is the ramping up of an agenda to tar Constitutional conservatives as racists and haters, a tactic straight out of the Southern Poverty Law Center playbook, and one approved by the so-called “Deep State” including (especially) “establishment Republicans.” It’s obvious that Trump is an avatar for those who support him because what he pledged reflects their views on what America’s laws should be. By “delegitimizing” him, they’re invalidating his supporters, allowing things to return to the fraudulent two-party paradigm envisioned by “progressive” icon Carroll Quigley.

With that status quo unexpectedly threatened, measures to discredit challengers, thoroughly and decisively, are being stepped up. The object here is not just to “convince” a critical mass of Americans, but to also give anyone thinking of dissenting with the “progressive” orthodoxy second thoughts over what it will cost them. It's to make people afraid to speak the truth because they'll be lumped in with the hateful.

So if you believe in the right to keep and bear arms, you’re called a violent extremist. If you believe in having the same immigration laws as Mexico, you’re called a xenophobe. If you think “refugees” need to be properly vetted, you’re called an Islamophobe. And you’re no doubt called a homophobe.  And a white-privileged racist. And anti-Semitic. All of which makes you a Nazi and a fascist, meaning your hate speech is not free speech and can be shut down. And, of course, if you have no right to free speech and no right to keep and bear arms, how can you have any rights? You obviously don’t deserve any, right?

Anybody see a familiar pattern developing here?

No doubt about it, there are American Nazis we’re told are part of the “Alt-Right.” The thing is, Hitler and the Nazis were National Socialists (and don’t let any revisionist liar get away with maintaining otherwise). That they and the commies are at each others’ throats is hardly anything new – rival gangs battle over the turf they claim because it’s what they do.

The other thing is, look at what we saw unfold at the so-called Malheur occupation, where the protester ranks were infested with confidential informants. Who thinks there aren’t similar numbers of snitches and provocateurs, stirring up the hotheads and otherwise distorting the optics to keep the picture focused on where all we’re being directed to look?

The fact is, you can’t be a Constitutionalist and be either a Nazi or a fascist. Those indictments are being hurled by accusers who don’t believe in limited, delegated powers and in the Bill of Rights. And Constitutional fidelity precludes active racism as well, since rights belong to individuals, and stripping them based on ethnicity is a collectivist violation.

It’s not the antis who laud the memory of civil rights pioneers like Roy Innis of the Congress of Racial Equality, or who supported the late Aaron Zelman of Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, or encourage Pink Pistols on their right to defend themselves against physical abuse. But the supposed “liberals” are quick to brutally condemn and disparage any who step forward from those groups for the grievous heresy of not acting according to stereotype.

It’s curious, because there is no more true egalitarian power-sharing arrangement than the right of the people to keep and bear arms. But as we see every time they open their yaps, for “progressives,” every day is Opposite Day.

Moms I'd Like to Mock (MILMs)

And speaking of flapping yaps, one more thing about Watts: Notice how she’s all outraged over open carry. Left to a different discussion is that she doesn’t much believe in concealed carry by non-“Only Ones” either (unless you’re on her armed security detail).

Matter of fact, she and her Everytown subsidizers are not all that keen on you having a gun in the home either, especially if you’re a woman.

Too bad these women who were bludgeoned to death by a lone male assailant evidently believed the anti-defensive gun use propaganda Watts and her useful idiot MILMs spew. But argue against that and you’ll no doubt be branded a radical sexist on top of everything else.

Don’t let the cultural Marxists intimidate you away from freedom advocacy by threats to smear you as a bad and hateful person. You know you're not, as do those you love. Throw their hypocrisy back in their faces. Be defiant. Be confident, because you can see for yourself the truth is on the side of responsible American gun owners. And do it with good cheer.

Besides, nothing makes tyrannophiles rage more than knowing we’re not afraid of them.

I dislike the left libertarian Reason, but thry is a good story up now linked by drudge. VA police have now corrected Governor McCrook’s falae claims with an official statement:

1. They did not find weapon caches hidden around the area as MCCrook claimed in an interview with the terrorist hate group BLM

2. The va state police were not “outgunned” and did not consider themselves to be at a disadvantage

He also denied getting paid. So he has said both things, which makes him a liar one way or the other. It also means that he is a natural propagandist.

As David said, Hitler was indeed a socialist – by his own admission: “We are socialists, we are enemies of today’s capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are determined to destroy this system under all conditions.” Adolf Hitler, May 1, 1927 Nazis – fascism – is socialism.

Apparently the governor and mayor did their best to make sure something like this happened so the psychopaths could grandstand about it. Even the aclu has stated the police did not control the situation or provide proper security to stop the violence. Instead of creating exits, the police on the scene made the people walk through the alt left red brigade antifas. This guaranteed a violent encounter would take place which is what Terry McCrook wanted to happen! It has been documented at every event, but antifa is a true terrorist hate group who hates western civilization, free speech, the… Read more »

I have already called my Congressman to “suggest” that the Mayor and Governor conspired to have a riot. I suggested that Congress investigate by getting ALL email, text messages and phone call records and testimony from ALL parties, involved with Charlottesville rather than continue the investigation into the trumped up Trump Russian hillary meme.

Generally, I agree with you, they’re generally honorable people and the order givers are the prime culprits. However, *every* officer takes an oath to uphold the Constitution, and that oath does not allow for “just following orders”. It is *every* officer’s duty to flat out disobey, or somehow sabotage or thwart unconstitutional or unconscionable orders. No one should become an officer if they think the oath somehow equals “mindlessly OBEY”. That’s why I support OathKeepers, morally and financially. If more officers belonged to Oathkeepers and took the oath seriously, unconstitutional orders would be far more rare. Any officer who obeyed… Read more »

Mr. Codrea is spot on with the suspicion that there has been collusion all the way up to the governor’s office to manufacture an incident. I read a few still unconfirmed eyewitness reports that Mr. Fields’ car was being mobbed by ball bat wielding Antifa when he apparently panicked and hit the gas. I doubt we will ever manage to sift the truth out of all the media hype. I spent some time looking into the involved groups yesterday. What I found could not be further from the MSM white supremacist mantra. There may be one or two supremacist types… Read more »

They might as well quit taking the statues away because they are bringing out the real feelings of the true Americans by destroying our history. Not teaching real history in school was bad enough but it was silent and no one could actually lay eyes on it. They may be biting off more than they can chew. Every snowflake I have ever seen melted eventually.
The next civil war will, more than likely, bring more statues to be erected because I feel true patriots would win and win bigly and we need a Trump type as a leader.

Unlike the cultural marxists, true liberty advocates like codrea don’t change their views based upon who is in power or who is involved in an activity. I still remember the daily warning cries from the msnbc types about nsa spying and drone strikes on civilians when bush was in power. Judging by the reaction of the left, all of that went away for eight years – we would certainly never know spying and drone strikes were dramatically increased under obama. Luckily, now that trump is in power it is ok for the left to suddenly be concerned about foreign wars… Read more »

If anybody, black, white, yellow or red, even green or gray shows up to keep the peace based on the Constitution and law, they’d be welcome. The problem seems to be that BLM wants trouble and violence, so does the KKK, so does the communist party. But Oath Keepers, the NRA, the sheriff and those who swear an oath or have sworn an Oath and don’t recall an expiration date when they raised their hands . None of the “armed” men and women shot anybody. But when the police leave the field as they did in LA 40 years ago,… Read more »

I’m probably not racist enough to understand your comment, so I’m not sure what you meant by it. There’s little need for anyone to “keep the peace” since TEA Party rallies are justly famous for being peaceful and law-abiding. If you were referring to the OathKeepers, they are not generally considered a militia by anyone but leftists, and they have a racially diverse membership. All they require is a commitment to honor your oath to support and defend the Constitution. I’d have no problem with them showing up at a TEA Party rally, in fact many probably do so.

The ground was always cleaner when we left, there was no trash left behind.
If somebody came to “our parade” to cause trouble they never made any overt move. But as it can be seen after Charlottesville, any trouble will be blamed on the conservatives by the MSM.

The “RIOT” WAS PREDICTABLE . When the police were ordered to pull out Governor McAuliffe got his talking point. Was he “hoping” for gun-fire and 100 dead, probably..
Why wasn’t the permit for the “two” groups 2 blocks apart? The confrontation and riot were expected and planned by the city PTB and probably the Governor.

Exactly. But even more telling a question; Why were the police withdrawn? Was it ordered by the Mayor or the Governor?

Seems like somebody issued parade/demonstration permits to set up a confrontation and then pulled the police so the riot could begin.

Did the Governor want the riot and death to create talking points ?
