AmmoLand News’ Content the Target of Elizabeth Warren’s New “Ministry of Truth” VIDEO

Opinion

Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- “If we lived in a State where virtue were profitable, common sense would make us ‘good,’ and greed would make us ‘saints.’ And, we'd live like animals or angels in the happy land that needs no heroes. But since in fact, we see that avarice, anger, envy, pride, sloth, lust, and stupidity commonly profit far beyond humility, chastity, fortitude, justice and thought, we have to choose, to be human at all. We must stand-fast sometimes, even at the risk of being heroes.” ~ Sir Thomas More (played by Paul Scofield), from the 1966 film version of Robert Bolt’s book, “A Man for All Seasons #add”

In a state where “secrets of the heart,” or “thought crimes” were in force, that state could arrest you and eventually cut your head off, for “thinking non-government-approved thoughts.”

Our Founders wisely rejected that dangerous path!

In our civilization, “crimes” are defined in statute as specific acts. All else, you are free to do, and “Secrets of your heart” remain so. Refrain from committing crimes, and the state will leave you alone.

At least, that’s the theory of it.

For example, in our civilization, “bigotry” while opposed by “public policy” is still not a “crime.”

“That man is a bigot” may not represent a complement in most quarters, but “being a bigot” is not a crime. As an American, I can “be a bigot” when I so choose and still walk about safely.

The reason is elementary, and should be obvious to all: The term “bigotry” is too vague and too subject to wide variations in interpretation to find a legitimate place in Law.

You can make the same persuasive case against terms like “racist,” “sexist,” and “abuser of power.”

It would require an all-powerful “Ministry of Truth” to “interpret” such ambiguous terms, and with history to guide us; we can confidently predict the Ministry’s “definitions” will be even more vague, puzzling, and evasive than the original, undefined term.

As Ayn Rand reminds us,

“No discussion, cooperation, agreement, nor understanding is possible among men who substitute emotion for proof.”

This is why “crimes” are (usually) carefully defined, and require a specific act.

The accusation, “That man is a criminal,” should invoke the response:

“What crime has he committed?”

When the response is silence, that man should go his way in peace, his rights of citizenship unmolested.

Unfortunately, leftists, who love personal power more than they love this country will dishonestly alter the “Law” in order to create a way of punishing non-supporters, and particularly those who speak out against them. They have done so for as long as any of us can remember.

To do this, the left perverts our legal system by turning thoughts into crimes, so that “racists,” “bigots,” can be herded into gulags, and quietly disposed of. This is exactly what Elizabeth Warren is currently proposing, with a straight face.

Interpretations of “thought crimes” can easily, conveniently be altered to fit the circumstances.

Thus when the state, under leftist control, tries to “help” a certain class of citizens, which it likes more than all other citizens, results are just as ruinous (to the individual and the nation) as when the state actively persecutes a certain class of citizens, a class which it dislikes more than the rest.

Such professed “assistance,” to some, and punishments to others (like taking all your guns away, without you ever being so much as accused of a crime), are always marketed to a naive public with cries of moral superiority, and predictions of “Armageddon” if they don’t become the Law of the Land.

How many times must we explode this evil, socialist/Communist falsehood?

Self-professed “liberals” want to retain the glory of capitalism, while vilifying, then punishing, capitalists.

Worse yet, they flirt with socialism/Communism, naively thinking predictable ruinous results (ecumenical squalor, poverty, slavery) can be somehow avoided.

“The Law is not a ‘light’ for you, nor any man, to see by. The Law is not an ‘instrument’ of any kind. The Law is a causeway upon which, so long as he keeps to it, a citizen may walk safely.” ~ Thomas More, again

To hell with this psychotic communist bitch. Her latest pathetic pander to the libtard voters is she promises to have a 9 year old tranny kid choose who she hires for her cabinet positions if she is elected. If that doesn’t prove that she has completely left the reservation I dont know what could.

Call me old fashioned, and I know I’m downright ancient at the age of 31 and all, but I remember when people didn’t lie simply because it was immoral and wrong… Welcome to 2020 where righteousness and morality have so long been forgotten that threats of criminal punishment have become a final, meager, and wholly inadequate attempt at coercing humanity back into just beings. Suddenly going out like the dinosaurs doesn’t seem so bad a fate, given the Democrat run alternative of perverting and subverting humanities every last foundational principle. At this point, my only Godly request would be to… Read more »

The problem with “responsible gun owners” is that they tote their hardware around as push-overs bearing no lethal threat of response when the radical left is busy shitting all over the very thing that gives them that right. Being a “responsible gun owner” is the same as being a Girl Scout with a box full of cookies just waiting to be pilfered by those who have no fear of us because we have proven over and over again that we are indeed, no threat. That needs to change. They need to know that we are dangerous, and can do much… Read more »

StWayne, You might consider toning it back just a few clicks. While it is right and good to be willing and able to defend oneself against attack, even from illegal acts by a corrupt government, it is a long prison sentence away from speaking of killing government officials, and the other types of violence that you seem to be attempting to entice. Nobody who is a modern Patriot would be willing to sit back and let the government waltz in and take their legally and morally owned weapons away from them, without a fight. But advocating that we be the… Read more »

Just gonna post the link to this missive again. The writer has penned a few pieces here as well. The important part is the bit about HANSOBS. I see them as the local solution to a national problem for many things communist.

If you go back through the AmmoLand archives, you will find all sorts people in many different places using inflammatory rhetoric. My response to that is, and just as pointed out by USA, is that as an ex eight-year military veteran sworn to uphold the Constitution of the United States against all enemies be they foreign OR domestic, that it’s these would-be socialist/dictator assholes who should live in fear of the people, and not the people in fear of them. Let me put it this way: if we can’t vote them out of office, do we just continue to let… Read more »

The Miller Court examined in detail, at pages 179-182, not only the duty to assist in the common defense but indeed the legal obligation each individual then had to possess the arms necessary to undertake that common defense. Citizens arrests. Assisting the sheriff in apprehending hoodlums. Taking frothing at the mouth leftwing socialists into custody and remanding them to a state mental hospital for testing and prolonged electroshock therapy… candidates include Warren, Biden, Mini Mike, Sanders, Booker, O’Rourke, Giffords, Cuomo…

I will assume then that the Republicans can count on Warren to speak up for them in their liable court cases when folks like Hillary clam that a republican candidate is a Russian asset?

Finally the socialist, communist and now NAZI types in the Democrat Party are coming out of the closet. Notice how many of the morons running for president are like this–every damn one of them–and so many others like Adam Shit, Pelosi, Schumer, etc., the list is just huge! Anyone thinking this country is not under threat from within, better think again!

Wake up, people. The commiecrats want to criminalize free speech itself. They’re not merely after your 2A rights, they want to take away ALL YOUR RIGHTS.

Case in point, the VA legislature voted for, and Tyrant Northam signed, a bill to criminalize all speech that criticizes them. Hey Coonman, I may be in Indiana, but I dare you to come over here and come get me. Go ahead, make my day!!
