Sometimes I think we have a difficult time putting into perspective that the Holocaust took place less than 80-years ago — or that Stalin, or Mao, or Pol Pot, or some other totalitarian despot was busy putting people to death in some organized fashion in the not so distant past.
Obama’s friend from the neighborhood, Bill Ayers, once discussed the necessity of having to kill, say, 25 million Americans who refused to go along with his idea of fundamental transformation, and today, in China and North Korea, political killings are still fairly standard practice. In the case of parts of Africa, I assume there are horrors the likes of which we will never know their true extent.
Which is why I always find it funny that the leftists, who invariably are behind these social experiments in genocide and cultural reorganization, project their behavior onto the “Christian right” or some other designation for people of the Judeo-Christian faith, who are the progeny of the founders of our country — a country whose founding and seminal assumption is natural law, the very thing that gives weight to the primacy of the individual and the idea of true tolerance.
Right now, what’s left of the “freedom fighters” we were supposed to get behind in Syria — at least, I think that’s what John McCain told me they were (though I may be confusing that with his legitimating of the Muslim Brotherhood) — are running their own human slaughterhouses, offering sacrifices in the name of their brand of Muslim radicalism, killing Christians and certain Muslims who don’t adhere to their brand, Al Qaeda’s brand, of pan-Arabia and the subjugation of the world to Islam.
This is happening today, in the age of iPhones, 3-D TV, and other technological marvels. And it’s being carried out by people who want control, who want to take us back to pre-industrial times.
So the idea that it can’t happen here at some point? Well, to borrow from the academics, that’s a mere epistemological bias that may be subject to some concentrated paradigm shift.
Hold on to that second amendment, people. It’s the final firewall.
