NEVER LET THEM DISARM YOU
PUBLISHED: 22nd September, 2019 | By MATT MARSHALL
So gun control is back in the news. Flamboyant homosexual Democrat candidate Pete Buttigeig is proposing new measures of gun control, combined with “tackling hate online”. All other Democratic candidates have voiced support for some measure of further gun control. In Canada, current Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has promised to ban semi-automatic assault rifles, initiate a major buyback program, and allow municipal bans on handguns. An obvious deflection from his recent embarrassing blackface photos, but I have no doubt he will follow through on this re-election promise. New Zealand has passed the Arms Amendment Act 2019 in response to the Christchurch Massacre. And of course much of Western Europe with the exception of Switzerland has very tight gun laws, with Great Britain notably now venturing into the territory of knife control (someone please shoot me).
I am not an American; I am not a great admirer of the United States Constitution and not a legal expert. I have no answer to how to stop mass shootings of innocent people or to keep weapons out of the hands of criminals and lunatics more generally. But I will say this, if you support gun control as a right-winger, congrats on digging your own grave. While there are legitimate questions about the proliferation of firearms and them getting into the wrong hands, these will have to wait. You simply cannot trust the people who would be in charge of control. Giving up your firearms to these people is the equivalent of a house cat voluntarily declawing itself on the recommendation of a coyote.
As I mentioned in my article on Charlottesville, America has a long history of upheaval and rebellion. Before even the revolution, colonists protected themselves against hostile Indians, French raiders, and rebellious slaves and occasionally overthrew local governments, all through the power of the musket. During the revolution, both Patriots and Loyalists formed armed militia to protect themselves from the other side. Texan revolutionaries battled Mexican state troops in their war of independence. White Southern men frequently carried guns, even to Church, to protect against the possibility of slave uprising. During the American Civil War, irregular raiders on both sides used hunting rifles to deadly effect behind enemy lines. During Reconstruction, blacks and pro-Union whites used rifles to protect against the Ku Klux Klan. The “Wild West” was a period where a gun often meant the difference between life and death on the wild and untamed frontier. Moving into the 20th century, armed uprisings by workers and the poor were a surprisingly common event. Immigrants and those who reacted violently to unwanted immigration both sought the power and deterrence of a rifle or a revolver. In 1946 citizens of Athens, Tennessee, overthrew a corrupt local government with weapons from their service overseas in WWII. As the racial and political battles of the late 1950s and 1960s intensified, both whites and blacks used firearms to defend themselves against the depredations of the other. In 1992, the Korean storeowners of Los Angeles famously opened fire on armed looters and gang members. You get the idea; the private citizen with the gun is as American as apple pie and baseball.
Yet it is not only an American ideal. Canada, Australia and New Zealand are frontier countries as much as the United States is, and have the same history of “Wild West” style settlement. In Europe there have been numerous revolutions and uprisings since the spread of gunpowder technology in the 15th Century. Some of them with a distinctly reactionary flavour. French monarchists, Catholics and conservatives resisted Jacobin terror in the Vendee Uprising and paid them back in the Thermidorian Reaction. Similar uprisings occurred in Italy and Spain against Napoleon’s Imperial Rule. Going forward in time to the end of the First World War, paramilitaries of every ideological flavour appeared. Fascist blackshirts battled leftists in the Italian countryside with knife and gun. In Germany and Finland in 1919, local farmers and hunters with their own guns supported right-wing Freikorps and “White” Finnish forces. As the Russian Civil War degenerated into warlordism and banditry in so many areas, peasants formed their own militias to protect their lands and daughters from those that would take them. The Polish Home Army was a constant thorn in the side of German occupiers during the Second World War, and of course there was the brief “Werwolf” guerrilla movement in post-war Germany and the multi-faceted partisan warfare in Italy. Throughout the Cold War, there were armed uprisings and guerrilla warfare against Communist forces in Eastern Europe, most notably in the Hungarian Revolution of 1956, and the successful Romanian Revolution of 1989. This is just a few of the brief historical examples of guerrilla warfare in European history.
“Gun control” is peak neoliberalism, the corrupt elites disarming the proletariat for its own good. I don’t agree with the far left on much but one thing I will credit communist, anarchist and Antifa groups with is their objection to gun control. The claims of some right wing figures not withstanding, communists have typically only pushed for gun control in countries they already control, and anarchists and Trotskyists see gun control as a threat to worldwide revolution. Moreover none of these groups trust the neoliberal world order and they are right. The Establishment agrees with the far left on their social goals, but are still a bunch of money grubbing fat cats opposed to anything but “capitalism without borders”. We on the right who oppose both the economic and social goals of the establishment are truly in their cross hairs.
The fact is the powers that be see nationalism as a barrier to their private fortunes, religion an out-dated relic that opposes their power, and Indo-Europeans as a useful scapegoat for all the world’s elect. Our current overlords don’t care if certain ethnicities and languages fade into the mists of history. They don’t care if the reality of binary sex and innate heterosexuality is buried under oceans of degeneracy. All they care about is their own bank accounts and personal pleasures. The elites don’t so much as hate us as have a cold and psychopathic indifference to us. The neoliberals aren’t necessarily far-left, but they willingly align with the far left to destroy us because we prove an opposition. They will deal with any recalcitrant leftist later.
The preceding is my own personal opinion on the motivations of the globalists and other right-wingers, including some other of my fellow commentators here may disagree. That is fine. Why the elites seek the destruction of Christendom and the Occident is less relevant than how they are planning to do it. Mass immigration, complacent political strategies, constant uber-left wing propaganda, abortion, and yes gun control. The disarming of the white man and anyone sympathetic to him is a must. Lone lunatics and damned murderers will be used to scapegoat the entire whole. It isn’t that our perfidious elites fear violence, indeed they welcome mass shooters and racial violence as an excuse to increase control. What they fear is the potential resistance to authority that the gun entails. An armed population is a potentially subversive and restless population. One that is hard to coerce and control.
A simple hunting rifle is a great equalizer between the individual and the state; men have done more with less. The fact is that it is a terrifically bad idea to grant any state that you do not trust with your own soul a monopoly on violence. I’m a Tory Monarchist, but even I believe that any just king would never deny the right of a peasant farmer to defend his own land and livestock. And in that I find strange common ground with George Orwell. Don’t let the state disarm you dear readers. Do not let them take your weapons and leave you as easy prey to whichever enemies they have incited against you next. Malcolm X was against gun control. Meir Kahane was against gun control. Oswald Mosley was against gun control. Your wannabe cowboy uncle in the countryside is against gun control. The “gender-queer Maoist” who thinks you are literally Hitler is against gun control. The immigrant storekeeper down the block is against gun control. Everyone who realizes the Establishment might turn against them is against gun control. Whatever the laws are in your country, oppose them going any further. Vote, petition or bury in the backyard, but do not let them simply walk over you.
