Would please the howling freaks on the left like an altercation in which one of them is harmed in a public and violent way. They are throwing thestupidest and most vulnerable into the fray hoping one of them ends up the next Phan Thi Kim Phuc.
The purpose of their violent demonstrations is simply this: To create an atmosphere in which ordinarily coolheaded people, fed up with the childishness, retaliate. And then that retaliation will be used by all who can to de-legitimize the right. It will take very little to make this happen. It took very little to turn the tide of war for North Vietnam- only a few cherrypicked photographs taken out of context, and the treachery of people like Walter Cronkite and John Kerry. And the punks who got their heads cracked at the Ann Arbor, Berkley, Kent State, and Washington protests are all teachers now, and infuse the mush they fill their students heads with, with the “Glorious” memories of their youths fighting back at the Man.
So there are many, many cattle waiting to be led to the slaughter. And they all hope to be slaughtered, and they all hope that you do it, and they all hope that they can use video clips of you doing it to demonize us all.
I don’t have to tell most people about this, most of you already have it figured out. It’s very tempting to think of how easy it would be to defend yourself against these shit flinging monkeys, but that is what they want- no, what they need to accomplish their goals.
This is the point where we need to take a page out of Gandhi’s book. No, I’m not a huge fan of the skinny little naked pacifist shitbird. But he’s got it right here, and as unpleasant as it sounds, this is how we have to do this.
From On Nonviolent Resistance by Mohandas K. Gandhi
There are two ways of countering injustice. One way is to smash the head of the man who perpetrates injustice and to get your own head smashed in the process. All strong people in the world adopt this course. Everywhere wars are fought and millions of people are killed. The consequence is not the progress of a nation but its decline…Pride makes a victorious nation bad-tempered. It falls into luxurious ways of living. Then for a time, it may be conceded, peace prevails. But after a short while, it comes more and more to be realized that the seeds of war have not been destroyed but have become a thousand times more nourished and mighty. No country has ever become, or will ever become, happy through victory in war. A nation does not rise that way; it only falls further. In fact, what comes to it is defeat, not victory. And if, perchance, either our act or our purpose was ill-conceived, it brings disaster to both belligerents.
But through the other method of combating injustice, we alone suffer the consequences of our mistakes, and the other side is wholly spared. This other method is satyagraha. One who resorts to it does not have to break another’s head; he may merely have his own head broken. He has to be prepared to die himself suffering all the pain. In opposing the atrocious laws of the Government of South Africa, it was this method that we adopted. We made it clear to the said Government that we would never bow to its outrageous laws. No clapping is possible without two hands to do it, and no quarrel without two persons to make it. Similarly, no State is possible without two entities, the rulers and the ruled. You are our sovereign, our Government, only so long as we consider ourselves your subjects. When we are not subjects, you are not the sovereign either. So long as it is your endeavor to control us with justice and love we will let you do so. But if you wish to strike at us from behind we cannot permit it. Whatever you do in other matters, you will have to ask our opinion about the laws that concern us. If you make laws to keep us suppressed in a wrongful manner and without taking us into confidence, these laws will merely adorn the statute books. We will never obey them. Award us for what punishment you like, we will put up with it. Send us to prison and we will live there as in a paradise. Ask us to mount the scaffold and we will do so laughing. Shower what sufferings you like upon us; we will calmly endure all and not hurt a hair of your body. We will gladly die and will not so much as touch you. But so long as there is yet life in these our bones, we will never comply with your arbitrary laws.
Remember how much he accomplished.
“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
Always remember we have the moral high ground. We have to keep it.
