Many of you are far better versed in the details of the French Revolution than am I.
This post is about the Reign of Terror: Not the personalities and forces involved in France, but the larger concept of people unleashing their inhibitions and taking the decision to be rid of their enemies by any means necessary. I’m not looking for an education about the motivations of the various factions in France – I am specifically looking at the methodology employed in the Reign of Terror.
Any student of American history must be aware that we are not above such total war.
I contend that we are fewer than 3-5 years from conditions in this country that will include the same fundamental methodology of the Reign of Terror.
I know many of you dislike the use of Left and Right concepts, but it is an effective tool of language that helps us all understand the conversation.
The political Left in this country, in which I include the Establishment Right (for the Establishment Right has zero interest in the Constitution), is quicker to violence and mob behaviors than is the political Right (in which I include genuine American Patriots and Constitutionalists…even those folks who mock the Constitution but who hold personal Liberty in the highest regard).
It is the political Left that is quicker to turn to violence in America. This is not news to any Patriot. I believe that the Masters of the political Left believe that the time to finish off the Patriot Class is at hand. We watch Occupy and we see the hand of puppet masters with hardcore socialist and communist goals. We watch these Left mobs guided to violence, and we have seen them arrive at the homes of political enemies.
How long before that threshold of violence upon their political enemies comes to pass?
I say you will see that political violence from the Useful Idiots of the Left in the late Spring & through the entire Summer of 2012.
I contend that the methodology used by the French in the Reign of Terror is a tool that the political Left in America is prepared to unleash.
This topic deserves more than a simple post at this blog. It deserves a column at Kerodin.com, and I would hope that those of you who write your own blogs, and those who read and comment would give some serious mental energy to this topic with me.
I see the Occupy and LEO theater today as nothing more than a test run, the same sort of practice our best Commandos engage in before a live raid. Test, assess, tweak and get ready for the real deal.
I see Occupy raising the levels of violence in the spring and summer…and I see the liklihood that their Masters will encourage and support a full-throated deployment of Reign of Terror tactics through the November elections.
I am convinced that the Enemies of Liberty believe that the time has come to effect the coup de grace and be rid of us, we remnants of serious Constitutional and Personal Liberty respect. I see mobs on the lawns of Patriots. I see Patriots dragged from homes and beaten. I see escalation to burning of homes, of destruction of “Patriotic” businesses. I see well-resourced and supported Useful Idiots turned loose to be rid of the last vestiges of Jeffersonian Principles.
I may be wrong. But I offer my observations as a man who has lived in the DC area my entire life, moving in and out of political circles over the years. I offer my predictions from the perspective of a man who has spent much of his adult life studying and engaging in real conflict. I offer my warnings as a man who has a wife to protect, a republic I wish to see restored.
Look for signs that the Left is beginning to unleash Hell.
Be prepared to respond…and to prevail.
I have no desire for violence.
I see that the Enemies of Liberty are intent on violence.
I implore you to be ready to be uglier than even you think you are capable. When it gets real, there are no rules. You will have to be uglier. You will have to be smarter. You will have to be willing to survive and prevail, by any means necessary.
The choice is theirs. Violence must be their decision.
If they choose violence, be ready to shove it down their throats.
I may not live – but I will die a Free man at Liberty. That may be the best victory for which I can hope. So be it.
