My favorite comment is from Dave Ragozzine, who writes: "Anyone can have a blog, who cares what the dude says(?)" Truer words were never spoken. Of course, most typical is this reaction to David's piece from Bob Richardson: "I no longer go to the Examiner website because of all the intrusive and vocal ads." I wonder how all those folks like Richardson really expect us to believe that they will be there at muzzle-point shouting "Molon Labe" opposing the evil machine when they, a. lack the intelligence and/or gumption to obtain a free ad-blocker so they can read David's work without further bother and, b., are so easily deflected from the search for truth by mere momentary inconvenience. And we are expected to think of such people as serious allies?
The only thing more ridiculous are the chest-thumpers who say they want to "get it on" now before they grow too old for the fight. Really? Are they ready for a civil war? Have they made all the preparations they need to? Have they trained, networked, worked the intelligence problem, or any of a million things necessary to prepare for such an eventuality? Do they even understand what that means, what the human cost would be? Recently, I walked with Bob Wright through the national cemetery at Shiloh battlefield park in Tennessee. We talked about what he called "the tiger talkers" and how he wished that he could drag all of them through the cemetery to get some idea of the reality of civil war, of the cost in blood and tears and irretrievable human potential.
In clinging to the competing notions that this is some form of political game without future cost, or, to the equally naive idea that "we can whip 'em easy," both sides demonstrate an unthinking ignorance that they will be swiftly and violently disabused of come the awful dawn of real civil war. In these illusions they are the doppelgangers of the collectivists who believe that just because they win an election that cloaks them in the color of law, the rest of us will meekly fall in line for their tyranny when they say so.
But the paradigm, as they say, is about to shift and there is a rough beast slouching toward Bethlehem, Connecticut to be born.
We have the promise, whispered in the halls of power in Connecticut, that the gun raids begin after Malloy's re-election. It is past time to seriously consider what will ensue when that happens. When the first innocents are dead in their living rooms, what then will the timid trolls and the tiger talkers DO? They should give some consideration to that eventuality now, for if Malloy is re-elected it is coming. Believe me, it WILL come.
