Goodbye, Blue Monday

Goodbye, Blue Monday!

Thanks as always to Pirate’s Cove, The Other McCain and Bacon Time for the Rule Five links!

I got a kick out of this:  Fellow blogger, shooter and sci-fi writer Larry Correia over at Monster Hunter Nation had this to say about “peaceful protesters” who wondered when law-abiding gun owners were going to come to their aid.  Excerpt:

A friend of mine posted about seeing this: “Where are all you gun owners now that the federal government and police are attacking citizens in the streets?? Now that the National Guard is out oppressing citizens? I thought this was the moment you’re waiting for? So why aren’t you out there fighting them with your guns? You’re nothing but a bunch of fucking cowards!”

My response was the GIF of Nelson Muntz going HA HA.  ?

But I’ve seen this sentiment a lot too over the last few days, so please if you are so incredibly fucking dumb that you are actually wondering why America’s gun culture aren’t commuting into the democrat cities you have banned us from in order to get into gun fights with the National Guard on your behalf, allow me to elaborate.

Hypothetical Liberal “Ally” Who Lives in the Suburbs Which Aren’t On Fire – “Hey, gun owners! Here is some civil unrest! Why won’t you come and help us?”
Snort. Fuck off. ?
Go, then, and read it all.  It’s one of the best things you’ll read this week.

I couldn’t agree more.  Larry, if you’re ever in the Denver area, reach out so I can buy you a beer (or the beverage of your choice.)

In the first place, about the “peaceful protestors” of Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Seattle and Portland I can confidently say two things:

  1. These children are the useful idiots of the leftist movement in the country right now.  Most of the morons on the street don’t know anything; they are almost universally upper-middle class white kids.  They think that when the “revolution” comes, they’ll be the ones in charge, but if you look at the history of socialist revolutions, the useful idiots almost always end up against the wall, looking at rifles from the wrong end.
  2. Were we, as law-abiding gun owners, for some reason to join these shitheads and help them, they’d turn on us in a moment once the battle was won.  How do I know?  Because they have been fucking telling us so for the last few decades.

Here’s the thing about these “protestors.”  They are, almost without exception, parasites on the society they criticize.  They toil not, neither do they spin.  And unlike the lilies of the field referred to in this parable, they don’t even pretty up the landscape; just the opposite.

And they openly deride us, the productive members of society, who produce their clothes and cell phones and the food they eat.  We do toil and spin, and they don’t seem to realize that in the grand scheme of things, they need us, but we don’t need them.

So, as far as I’m concerned, these useful idiots can take a long running start and go fuck themselves.  I wouldn’t spit on them if they were on fire.  As Larry states:

Liberal “allies” are quick to call gun nuts the bad guys, but we’re not trying to disarm people. We want everybody to be able to defend themselves. It’s a common thing to see some meme on the internet, showing a black family shooting or posing with their guns, with some caption like “bet this offends the NRA”, which is liberal projection, because in reality in my social circles everybody is like, “fuck yeah, good for them”. And the harshest complaints I’ve seen have been about trigger finger discipline or lack of eye protection.
My side isn’t the one that wants the state to have a monopoly on force. We know the 2nd is for everybody, regardless of skin color or where you live. You fuckers are the ones who keep declaring we can’t fight the government with AR-15s because they have tanks and nukes, but then you bumbling fuckheads try it by throwing rocks?

So not only no, but hell no.

Bravo, sir.  Bravo.
