Why Do Americans Think We’re Immune From This Sort Of Violence?

BY Herschel Smith

Via WRSA, Chateau Heartiste:

A few years ago, I struck up a conversation with a white guy from Zimbabwe — in the Wal Mart checkout line, of all places. Fair number of blacks around, but the guy was totally relaxed. It was a comparative matter, you see. Back home, he explained, there was just just no way his car would still be in the lot when he exited the store, since in the present case he had left no one armed to watch it. Just having that luxury — not leaving an armed person and believing his car would be present —   was like heaven.

And Americans may look back on years gone by as like heaven compared to what’s coming.  What’s coming won’t exempt military or LEOs because they carry guns or a badge.  Everyone will get swept up in it.

As for Christians in California, let’s take a look at where they are right now.

According to its website, Summit Ministries, an organization devoted to advising Christian youths on how to live out a Christian worldview, has canceled its scheduled appearances at Biola University in Los Angeles “due to concerns that California will forbid some of what it teaches.”

Summit’s concern is real.

The fact is that California is about to make into law A.B. 2943, a bill recently passed by the state Assembly and probably soon to be ratified by the state Senate.  The proposed law seeks to punish by fines and penalties any goods and services and services “offering to engage in or engaging in sexual orientation change efforts with an individual,” claiming that such efforts constitute deceptive business practices.

[ … ]

The reluctance to fight is in some ways understandable because of the high-profile examples of the Christians whose businesses and lives have been destroyed by radicals of the LGBT movement.  Even big fish like Hobby Lobby and Chick-fil-A have been threatened because their managers have dared to stand up for the Christian view of marriage.

Moreover, many times, fellow Christians do not come to the support of other Christians who are attacked.

Well, they’re too busy watching football and worrying over racial reparations while they’re at worship.  It only goes downhill from here.  Diversity means submission, Sharia law means for your women too, and MS-13 had better be appeased or they’ll hack you to pieces with machetes.  They clearly want to do something like that to Mr. Trump.

In the mean time, you’d better purchase some good firearms and ammunition and learn to fight if you haven’t already done that.  Make sure not to forget PT.  It means everything.  Without PT you will be too winded and weak to defend yourselves or your families.

    Re: “What’s coming won’t except military or LEOs because they carry guns or a badge.”

    Is it too late to change your spelling, i.e., “except” to “exempt”? Spell-check isn’t always what its cracked up to be!

    Thanks. Exempt as in exempted from the violence. But it read stilted. Changed as recommended.

    From the PJMedia article:

    “No matter how offensive such artwork is, death threats against artists are horrific and unacceptable. The right response to offensive speech is corrective speech, never violence.”

    Really? Apparently, groups like antifa and BLM never received that memo.

    “…compared to what’s coming.” What’s coming may be a full-blown police state. John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute gives his observations here:

    We’re already having problems similar to those in Rhodesia and South Africa in the US, despite the black population only being about 11% of the total population.

    In Charlottesville, Virginia a black man who initiated attacks with a D-cell Maglite, giving one man a fractured skull (I treated this man) gets “charges dismissed” for attempted murder and the two men which stopped the attacks get convicted of “malicious wounding” with 10 year and 6 year recommended sentences it’s not hard to see where this is headed.

    There will be a correction. A rather harsh correction.

    These are the “good ole days” and it’s later than we think. Use them wisely.

    South Africa may not be a Good Example of what is coming Here, except on the ‘micro’ scale. SA is, and always has been, a White Minority ‘nation’, Created by White Europeans, and then Abandoned to the indigenous savages.

    Whites in SA had a Chance, back when they were Fighting the communists led by Mandela, (and his foreign (((bolshevik))) Supporters) to have used the Nukes they had Developed to Squash a few of the communist-dominated neighboring ‘countries’, and then Made Order of their Own State by Expelling/Eliminating Mandela and the communists.

    Somehow, their ‘leaders’ went Soft, (or were Bought Off by the bolsheviks) and the Country fell apart without White Leadership. No, that’s not “Racist”, it’s just a Fact, on that We ignore at great Peril.

    Now, the remaining Whites in SA are a Minority under Siege by the ‘government’ that is run by feral savages. I doubt we shall see that Here, as the ‘minority’ populations that are feral are concentrated in Cities that are already nearing Full-on Zombieland status… the ones that manage to escape the Mess of their own making will be Spread too Thin to be a big problem, particularly once the ability of the .gov to Protect the Criminals from the People wanes due to the Chaos.

    Buy More Ammo!

    Perhaps through all of your, our, we, mine, etc., Internet bluster, one needs to ask themself two questions:

    1. Am I willing to end my life as I know it, and kill domestic communists ?

    2. Am I willing to die defending myself from the tyranny foisted upon me by the scum of government ?

    Once you, us, we, they, I pull the trigger/thrust the blade, one can never go back.

    What are you willing to do ?

  9. On May 8, 2018 at 4:33 pm, Herschel Smith said:


    I wouldn’t call it “internet bluster.” It’s an online journal with related thoughts and advocacy.

    Still … nothing in the post can possibly be construed as anything other than legal and righteous self-defense.

    Make no mistake though. America is 20 years won’t look anything like America today.

    100 percent true Herschel. If no other problems were even on the table, importing a murderous cult with the ultimate intention of defeating our society and replacing it with their own will ensure massive conflict, probably before 20 years have passed.

    Everyone should know that when the Dutch (white Christians) arrived near what became Cape Town, there were no subSaharan negroes south of the Limpopo River. Essentially, all of the blacks in South Africa are more in a “immigrant” status than whites were.

    The pygmies that were in the area at the time weren’t SubSaharan negroes and weren’t a problem. They couldn’t work on farms or much of anything else.

    DanIII –
    “1. Am I willing to end my life as I know it, and kill domestic communists ?
    2. Am I willing to die defending myself from the tyranny foisted upon me by the scum of government ?”

    Offensive vs. Defensive Actions. (1.) does not become Practical until (2.) interferes with the Daily Lives of Many (perhaps Millions) of People. That is the Tightrope the (((bolsheviks))) are walking, a Mile Above the Grand Canyon Floor.
    Continued Trampling of the Natural Rights of the People “Works until it Doesn’t” and they know it.
    It is Why there has been no ‘Mass Uprising’, SO FAR. They Saw and Learned from the ‘Bundy Ranch’ Incident, and I believe that .gov had to re-asses the Speed at which it could openly impose Tyranny. On the other Hand, a Lot of Patriots who have wondered what sort of ‘incident’ calls for being a Minuteman
    got an Example of what would make the Beast back down.

    (((they))) Cannot live in Peace with Honest Men – psychopaths never Can – and so I believe that we shall see another attempt at Naked Intimidation, beyond the False-Flagged and Politicized stuff like Vegas and Florida, something that is Directed at Patriots instead of Innocents.

    Everyone will Know when that Line has been Crossed; remember, the ‘senator’ from Nevada, shitstain mccain, was demanding that the Air Force make a Drone Strike on the Bundy Ranch… Anyone care to Imagine where That would have went?

    Until something of that Magnitude happens, it’s useless for Patriots to Argue about “who’s going to get off the Porch” or any other Speculative >Offensive<

    This has nothing whatsoever to do with race or skin color. Our fundamental philosophical approach to life is different. If you’ve learned nothing about me visiting these pages, you must know that.

    America is founded and based on a Christian world and life view, culture and system of law. Rejection of said world and life view is the root of all of our problems. Nothing else.

    Only true religion, acceptance of the vicarious atonement, the historical doctrine of the Trinity other fundamental doctrines can save America. Only the doctrine of the Trinity can be a basis for a stable government that protects liberties.

    I commend for your reading R. J. Rushdoony’s “The One and The Many: Studies in the Philosophy of Order and Ultimacy.”


    Also see my own post:


    To quote one commenter on this post:

    “Nations, societies, cultures, peoples must bow before God’s Mediatorial King, Prince Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ. With the “no religious test” clause there is an explicit rejection of Him.”

    Race is irrelevant. Skin color is irrelevant. Ethnicity is irrelevant. There is only submission to the God-man, truly God and truly man, Christ Jesus. Only He can save America, just as only He can save individuals. Only application of His law-word can be the basis for a stable society.

    EDIT: And yes, I’m a Christian reconstructionist, viz. R. J. Rushdoony (hundreds of books) and Greg Bahnsen, “Theonomy in Christian Ethics.”
