Countering Leftist Lies: The Second Amendment

The Constitution is widely subject to interpretation. Even though the Constitution itself is very clearly worded, even a very specific document can fall prey to the selfish (ideological or power hungry) nature of human thinking.

Leftists and collaborationists on the right (what many people call "Fudds") believes that the word "militia" means police and military. The argument falls flat on its face with the final fourteen words of the amendment ("The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed"), but many people can fall for it.

The militia was every able bodied male and there were never restrictions on women from owning weapons. The founders wanted no standing army or federal police forces. Well regulated militia meant well trained militia.

Psychological Warfare

The left is winning without a shot being fired because they are very good at using psychological manipulation to control how people think. You can read an article on the methods here. Below are their favored methods with prominent examples so you can recognize the signs. (Update: added Minimalization). Feel free to copy the whole post to your own blog or forum. The more people who get educated, the better.

Gaslighting: a form of psychological abuse used to get the victim to question their own perception, beliefs or sanity. When they claim they support the 2nd Amendment while New York police are confiscating guns from people on anti-depressants, or when they call gun owners the "black helicopter crowd" while voting on a national registry, that is gaslighting.

Projection: scapegoating the victim for the actions of the abuser. They accuse constitutionalists of being anti-government when they undermine the existing multi-branch government with unaccountable, unelected "Tsars" and non-congressional committees (the health exchanges with their death panels).

Rationalization: what many people call "spin." Justifying their actions, either falsely or by throwing in a dash of Negative Reinforcement ("It's for the children").

Misdirection: Changing the subject. This one is notoriously effective when they use Shaming ("you're a racist!" "you're a tinfoiler!") or Guilt-Tripping ("you love your guns more than our children") to throw their intended victims on the defensive to regain control of the narrative.

Positive Reinforcement: Superficial Sympathy. Seen a few times when Obama showed his crocodile tears. Also famously played by Franklin Delano Roosvelt ("There is nothing to fear but fear itself!").

Denial: The least effective but has been played by Janet Napolitano (denying that DHS is turning into a war machine).

Lying by Omission: Maintaining the appearance of accountability by telling only a little bit of the truth. We have seen this one played on attack on Benghazi.

Minimalization:  A type of denial combined with Rationalization. Martial Law in Boston was called "Shelter in Place."

How do you counter these? Always remember that the flak is always sited near the target. Stay on the offensive and stay on the subject, no matter what they throw up. Enlighten everyone you can to these methods by spreading this around. Defeating propaganda goes a long way toward shattering the facade of legitimacy (a true statesman would never resort to any of the above) and infallibility (an illegitimate regime is nothing without the support of its victims just as a wife beater has no one to abuse without a wife to fall for him).

Gaslighting

Gaslighting is a form of psychological abuse where the abuser convinces people to question their own beliefs or sanity. Blue's blog explains in more detail. I am simply putting into perspective by citing examples.

Obama says "weapons designed for theaters of war don't belong on our streets," while being protected by a civilian agency armed with FN P90s, backed up by SUVs armed with retractable gatling guns. The Whitehouse itself is protected by ground launched versions of the AIM-120 AMRAAM anti-aircraft missile and is surrounded by combat air patrols of F22s.

Joe Biden tells people that all that is needed for self defense is a shotgun, while Diane Feinstein claimed that 30 round magazines are not essential, while under the protection of Capitol Police armed with HK G36s.

All of the above in a city whose gun ban has resulted in one of the highest murder rates in the nation.

Joe Biden accused gun owners of being tinfoil hat wearers by calling them the "Black Helicopter Crowd," and further applying the Gaslighting technique by saying sarcastically that "Special Forces Folks are gonna swoop down on America and gather up everyone's guns." The day before this, New York began confiscations of guns from people who were on anti-depressant medications. Let's not forget that soldiers followed illegal orders in 2005 when they confiscated guns from New Orleans residents. During the siege on Waco, the FBI and ATF was equipped and supported by the military.

Every genocide in history was preceded by registration of firearms. People were always told it would reduce crime. The best way to counter gaslighting is to question the gaslighter relentlessly. When they tell you it is to reduce crime, ask them how is it that mass murders always occur in gun free zones. If they claim that you are wrong then force them to back their own propaganda up with hard data. When they inevitably change the subject, keep the pressure up. When they call you a tinfoiler or racist or backwards, ignore the accusations and keep on the offense: never fall into the trap of getting defensive, for that is their counter-attack that allows them to regain control.

US Army breifing cites SLPC

A US Army Reserve instructor, using the SLPC as a source, labeled Evangelical Christians, Catholics and Orthodox Jews as religious extremists, lumping them in with Al Queda as well as the KKK (which is a defunct organization). It even labels "Islamophobia" as "extremism."

The DOD has called it an isolated incident. Who knows what the truth is but this is the same DOD whose West Point parroted propaganda that constitutionalists are terrorists. This is the same DOD whose federalized national guard units confiscated guns in New Orleans.

MAIG = Mayors Adovcacy for Illicit Gains

Not only was MAIG (Mayors Against Illegal Guns) Mayor James Schiliro arrested for committing a violent crime with a gun, Mayor Noramie Jasmin was arrested for accepting bribes. As you will read in the article, these two are just a few of the anti-gun group's members arrested for committing crimes. Their actions prove that the only people who want disarmament are criminals who want free reign.

Federal Government Seizes 3D Printing Gun Website

Read it here. The funny thing is that the government is trying to control somthing that cannot be controlled. The open-source nature of this 3D printing thing means the government cannot stop it. Long before CNC machines were even invented, resistance fighters have made their own guns, as famously demonstrated during the Warsaw Uprising.
