    The Tyranny of the Perpetually Offended

    Someone had commented how much this blog has changed over the years, for the worse, as he saw it. He's probably right. I used to write a lot about the Constitution, about the violations, specifically and line by line with supporting case law, etc.

    The problem with that sort of thing is that we no longer live in a Constitutional republic. What is the point in going on and on about a document that means nothing, that is irrelevant and disregarded. One only need to read the headlines to understand that an entire presidential administration operated outside the law, with aid and support of the federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies to see what I mean. That is an impossibility in a government where there is the rule of law, that it is respected by the government as well as the people and that world just no longer exists.

    What we have now, they "system" under which this nation operates is something else entirely, it is more akin to a democracy the likes of which the founders hated. "A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty nine." Thomas Jefferson.

    Now, they don't even need fifty-one percent, rights are being taken away wholesale by government bureaucracies, not with legislation, but with regulation. But even worse, we are a nation governed almost completely by the tyranny of the perpetually offended. If a gay couple wants a particular person to bake a cake and that person refuses to trade his labor for their money, he will be compelled to do so by law. If a Muslim doesn't want to live next to a butcher who sells pork, the Muslim can have the butcher shop shut down.

    Lost is the understanding that the majority votes for the representative, who represent the people. The senator is supposed to represent the state, not people at all and the president is elected, actually, by the electoral college, not the masses. This was wholly to avoid the idea that the majority would be in a position to deny the rights of the people.

    Rights were never intended to be privileges, as they are conceived of by today's citizens, something that can be revoked if they are offended by those rights. All they have to do is get some commissar in black robes to agree with their political perspective and voila, rights disappear or created at the stroke of a pen, no need to go through the messy process of Constitutional amendment, that would be too hard and the tyrants, the perpetually offended would not get their way quickly enough.

    Now, we stand on the precipice of losing the Second Amendment and with it any hope of retaining the others. The Second Amendment stands as the last hope of empowering the individual, to allow them to defend themselves, protect their property and, at times, supply them with food. All of the things they are told the government can handle, despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary. As they say, when seconds count, the police are just minutes away.

    Yes, there are those living on the ragged edge that rely on hunting as a supplement to their income, even today. Though, those people will never be considered in the argument, because the argument is not over people, or children or rights, it is over whether the perpetually offended will be able to exert their tyranny over the individualists they have so long sought to destroy through government dependency. The perpetually offended are really collectivists who seek power over the individual and the whole individualist ideology and by being offended they work their destruction through the courts.

    So, this blog has changed, because the recognition that we live in a post-constitutional tyranny is inescapable.

    There may come a day when we pick up a rifle and smite the bastards. If that ever happens, I can promise you this:

    In the beginning, few will come. Many will claim to be willing, but will stay at home rather than risk life and limb. A few will start, a trickle of men from the boondocks and the inner city. With each blow struck against the Leviathan, more men will come. The trickle will become a stream, a river, a torrent, eventually sweeping aside everything in it's path.

    I can also promise you this:

    Those of us that do this will suffer more than any man can possibly bear, and our blood will flow through the streets like tides. We will burn up all the years of our lives in one moment to drive the enemy back a little further. For many of us, our first battle will be our last. We will bleed, we will die, we will cry for our mothers, we will bury our friends, and we will eventually lose our sanity in a world gone utterly mad.

    Yet we will do these things, for if we do not, then everything we've ever loved will die.

    The slippery slope is steepening.

    At the bottom is a vast effusion of blood.

    Thoughtful essay that is more intelligible to those who’ve been raised with the principle of personal responsibility as a key foundational principle of the social contract. Not a done deal yet, win or lose, but the death grip of the perpetually aggrieved PC is being loosened a bit more each day by our President and all patriots.

    This crap all took off with Madalyn Murray O'Hair.

    Watching her in film clips you can see just how despicable 'noble' causes can be.

    Attributing racism and “discrimination” for the “unequal outcomes” SJW’s like to point to as “proof” that because blacks are jailed out of proportion to their numbers in society (or don’t finish high school, or earn less, etc ad nauseum) without reasonably examining what choices these individuals made that caused them to fail at life is a preposterous, irrational, infantile level of reasoning which should not be continued to be allowed in adult discourse about the matter.

    The only thing that stands in the way of complete control is the fact that there still exists the possibility of an armed response.

    The PTB have been very careful to keep the incremental process slow enough as to not trigger this response. The plan is to use all three branches to ensure "the day" never happens. Pass the law, enforce the law and have the SCOTUS been the law is constitutional. That leaves only those willing to be labeled as felons to resist. The greatest fear of the PTB is to move too quickly and force the "day" before they can forcibly disarm.

    Are you sure this is the thread you meant to post this in?
    If so, what does race have to do with the OP?

    Left wing thought must be made a pariah.

    The whole TACTIC of being “offended” supposedly justifying immediate, repressive, actually illegal retribution upon those people, things, or events that “give offense” to some group, ESPECIALLY “proteced” group is NOW MOST ofen used by black militant SJW because it aligns being offended with “taste” and claims NO accountability or need to actually rationally, reasonably “justify” being offended before they either expect IMMEDIATE, EXTRA-LEGAL, satisfaction of their demands or else assert some right to react violently and destructively. They completely IGNORE anyone elese’s rights in the matter as being without standing.

    It is long past time to move the “offended” into the “IGNORE” catagory of “news” and let em whine, without attention.
