The Many Moral Aspects of Violence and Resistance

Ammoland Shooting SportsUSA -( Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, there lived a group of people who called themselves the Moriori. In the past they had a history of violence that included cannibalism, but many centuries ago, their reverred Chieftain, Nunuko, demanded an end to the violent behavior.

He commanded, “From now and forever, never again let there be war…”. And so they obeyed their wise Chief and then lived peacefully together in the Chatham islands near New Zealand.

Yet, that peace lasted only until 1791 when British foreigners and Taranaki Maori found the Chatham Islands. These foreigners quickly realized that the Moriori people would never fight. And the Moriori quickly realized that they and their children would be enslaved and/or eaten if they did not resist.

A meeting of tribal elders sealed their fate. They decided that, “the law of Nunuko was not a strategy for survival, to be varied as conditions changed; it was a moral imperative.” There would be no resistance.

The chosen non-violent Moriori path was seen by the Maori invaders as cowardice and so, they brutally treated their new slaves as worthless cowards. On March 19, 1933, the last full-blooded Moriori, Tommy Solomon, died.

Chief Nunuko had created a suicidal culture that would eventually accept slavery, rape and death for their families and themselves.
We today view this as a failed culture, but there are some who would thrill to the bravery of the Moriori, whose principles guided them onto the path of death rather than to the use of violence, violence that would have protected their families and children. One might almost admire such a virtuous path, until we imagine the horendous screams of dying families.

We gunnies do not accept the virtue of such a path. It defies our acceptance because we would never abandon our families to such a fate and we understand that sometimes the mere threat of violence would suffice. So many of our countrymen do not.

So, when President Trump used the words “fire and fury” to warn N. Korea about the certainty of reprisals, he was characterized, by the super-moral journalists and politicians (READ: Progressives), as a crazed drooling rogue.

We can describe, here in the US, a large group of super-moral people, who believe that we should be so helpful, giving, virtuous, and totally nonviolent, that we are willing to impoverish ourselves and send our own culture of freedom to the graveyard of ancient history. Yet, this group is full of idiological confusion.

Unlike the steadfast nonviolent values held by the Moriori, this dangerously confused super-moral group, who preach generosity and non-violence, shows acceptance and respect for the behavior of their violent sub group of black clad thugs. They explain that those of us on the Right are so deplorable and dangerous that intimidation and violence against us is acceptable, useful, necessary and even the most virtuous behavior available to them.

At the same time, the super-moral critters do not wish us to carry or use weapons, including knives and defensive sprays, insisting that we should open our national hearth, and our national bank account to all who claim sanctuary. It seems not to matter if there is a growing liklihood that eventually we become so financially bankrupt that such admired conduct would come to a pitiful end.

It appears that these critters would take joy from the inevitable cultural genocide that would surely follow an open borders policy. They value the open borders concept as part of their definition of morality, but care not to admit that they are stealing our kid’s gift of freedom.

The leaders of these critters are an elite power group, depleted of any morality, who have learned how to create their wealth from an impoverished nation rather than from the prosperous nation we once were and could again be.

Although, we Americans believe in the success of our Founders social system expiriment, and the longevity of our Constitution. The ideas therein written, were written with our blood, but can be destroyed just as readily if we are cowed into accepting our guilt, as charged by the super-moral culture, which has developed around us.

We freedom loving Americans cannot continue to accept the huge numbers of humanity who could, unknowingly, overwhelm and destroy the culture of freedom and prosperity. We can not, WILL NOT, accept the destruction of our Democratic Republic, nor its practical national agenda, or the President that we elected to implement it.

It would appear that we are beginning to successfully push back against the silly, even rediculous, claims of the Left, that we, not Antifa, are the violent demonstrators. We note that some of the super-moral leaders have been forced, by our resistance, to walk back their blatantly false rhetoric.

We The People, have a strong set of ethics and morals. We all believe that neither we, nor our President, lie, as do those on the Left. We do not need to falsely attack our adversaries or slant statistics to win their minds. We know in our hearts that we are not fibbing by omission.

We know that our moral values have placed us on a virtuous path. We do not need to compromise with liars, nor should we. WE ARE NOT THE PROBLEM, and the SUPER-MORAL COWARDS, the LEFT, among us, need to understand that WE DO NOT FOLLOW THE PRECEPTS OF THE MORIORI.

I thought God was the Commandant…


No, that was Hugo Chavez el comandante 🙂


Very well written article. Demonstrates the necessary path to life includes the right to defend ones self.

Bobby Guns

I realize that the article was about what to do from a moral standpoint, but it appears that some have decided that this is a perfect forum to discuss religious issues/interpretations of an ever-widening description. Can we please get back on the issue of self defense, which was the reason for the article in the first place?

“Anyone who clings to the historically untrue and thoroughly immoral doctrine that violence never solves anything I would advise to conjure up the ghosts of Napoleon Bonaparte and the Duke of Wellington and let them debate it. The ghost of Hitler would referee. Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than any other factor; and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Those that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and freedom.” – Robert Heinlein. It is imperative that we answer violence with violence if we are to prevail.

The City Fathers of Carthage would most certainly disagree with the precept that “… violence never solves anything…”

Gregory Romeu

Once evil unleashes violence upon a peaceful nation, it should be met with swift and unrelenting pain and desecration a hundred fold, without politics or regulation. Always leaving just that one guy alive to run back and spread the story of unsurmountable gore just witnessed. Else, you would have others coming to you with books written and titles such,as, “What Happened”?


no idea in history has ever come into being without the push of a bayonet ,the shot of a gun or the swing of a sword

My moral compass: If someone cares so little about his own safety and life as to commit crimes against you, then you should not care about his safety and life. Fire away with gusto.


The Commie/NWO/DemoRat/Left has been in our Nation since the 1900’s but had been held in check by the Patriot’s of our Nation. Now much of that has changed…they teach that our founding Fathers where terrorist and that our Republic is evil at the Core! This is completely wrong and anyone that knows their history knows this to be true. But since our children have been brain washed from K through College now our grasp of what our Nation was and still should be is nearly gone. In 10 to 20 years or less, these little Commies will be running our… Read more »

@USPat1, Good observations, and the progressive/socialist/Marxists are using our own political system and police to protect them while they subvert our nation. If there could be just one week without law enforcement, we could fix this mess.

Gregory Romeu

How many of us pray for just that one week’s vacation?

Larry Brickey

Communist? What is that in your mind? Yes, we must be on guard for our liberties but from both right and left. Seems that anyone you disagree with is an imminent threat. Historically the country has not always been on the moral high ground but it is the best one going.

Wild Bill

b. Anyone that disagrees with another, is a potential threat, not an imminent threat. You over state the your point.

Larry Brickey

You may be right.

In the meantime the only cure for the violence of evil men is righteous violence in return. We have a God given right to defend the gift of life and freedom that He gave us. It is also our duty!

Gregory Romeu

That’s rwo of us!


God protected peacefully minded people from people who were not peacefully minded. The Violently mind people ate human flesh. Those people were possessed by demons who want to eat us through the soul that is in a person. The person is not aware of that. God ordered people to kill such people. God did that himself. God is long suffering toward us. He does not want anyone to perish, but to come to repentance. They that repent will not see God as a consuming fire when seen in his glory. Wicked don’t suffer forever. They are obliterated from existence body… Read more »


You are a looney toon


Canaanites, Hittites, Perizzites, Jebusites, Ammonites, Moabites, Baal, Baalim worshipers and Philistines. There is a reason why those nations don’t exist. Read up on them. You will see why they no longer exist. You don’t know the old testament. Moabites ambushed the Isrealit6es when they were fleeing the Egyptians. God ordered the destruction of the Moabites. God is longsuffering toward people. The Moabites turned God’s Spirit away constantly. That is why they were violently minded. The church perverts scripture. Hell is not a place of eternal burning. Hebrews 12:29 for our ” God is a consuming fire.” 1 John 1:5 –… Read more »

Artie! If you really bothered to READ The Bible, God does dictate to idiots like YOU to NOT shove, HIS word down our throats, lest you PISS US OFF AND TURN US AWAY FROM HIM! Now, SCOOT THE F OUTTA HERE!


Arty you made the statement that “the church perverts Scripture.” What do you then do with the verse that declares that the church is the “Pillar and ground of truth.” ( 1 Timothy 3:15) Surely of you’re referencing churches that teach that Hell is a real place? I’m assuming you believe that Heaven is a real place. If that’s the case then when God saw fit to speak of a place called hell (the lake of fire “prepared for the Devil and his angels” [Matthew 25:41]) in the same way He spoke of heaven then why do we take one… Read more »

whitefox, Hmmm, yes. I can see that you are right. Just keep in mind that all elections are on Wednesdays.


God does not consider what day it is when he is in all points in time at the same time.

Larry Brickey

Don’t take the Bible as word for word accurate. It isn’t. It’s more about why than how.


See the words of Jesus when you look at the words in the bible. People would look at the words of Lucifer had the words in the bible not be the words of Jesus. The Bible would read like the Quran. The Biible does not read like the Quran. you are not aware of what the Bible teaches.


Wicked become ashes under the feet of then righteous. Ashes cannot suffer. God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked. The churches don’t teach the truth. God is the judge. His light when seen is what judges the living and the dead..
