Violence Gets You Nothing!

BY Herschel Smith
2 years, 2 months ago

So says Glenn Beck.  Jim Treacher piles on at Instapundit.  Mark Levin wants the perpetrators to be prosecuted, demands it, screams it at his audience.  There is no end to the parade of “conservatives” joining the chorus of outrage and demands for retribution.

This will be brief, but I must say that as I’ve had time to think about it, I don’t really care what happened in Washington, D.C., except that a good woman perished.  I don’t really care if it was a false flag event, I don’t care what was or wasn’t accomplished.  I wouldn’t care if the capital building had been burned to the ground.  I don’t do business there, and any shutdown of the business of the controllers can’t help but be good for the liberty of America.

But what I do care about is the rank, despicable, repulsive hypocrisy of those who enjoy the liberty bought for them by the blood, sweat, tears, toil, labor and in some cases the lives of better men who risked everything to purchase that independence from tyranny – but then who demand that the very tactics they chose to obtain that independence, absolutely necessary tactics as proven by the fact that the king had dispatched his armies, are never acceptable, bring nothing good, never accomplish anything worthy, and are to be avoided at all costs.

Such were the arguments in the continental congress, with the state of S.C. being the last to concede (because they knew that the Southern port of Charleston would be a foci of any campaign against the colonies and that S.C. would pay a terrible cost).  Those arguments failed even for the delegates from S.C.

Violence against King George didn’t accomplish anything good, until it did, and liberty was purchased and freedom won.  Spare me the moralistic preening, screaming outrages, and demands for justice.  Those demands should have been proffered over the 2020 election fraud rather than the people who rebelled against that national crime.

And if you wish to criticize what happened at the capital, spare me your complaints about the next four years.  I’m not interested in hearing them.  Shut up and take it.  You lost your moral justification with your claims that violence gets you nothing.  Violence brought an end to the Islamic occupation of Europe, where little girls were raped and turned into sex slaves, boys were forced to become Islamic hoodlums, women were raped and then killed, and all of this happened in front of the men who were then tortured and killed.

Your threshold for invoking violence may or may not be the equivalent of mine or anyone else, but don’t tell me that violence gets you nothing and then reach for a gun when a criminal busts in your door to harm your family.

    And absent initiated and threatened violence, no state on Earth could exist. The whole statist framework is based on using the violence of government, a gang by any other name without the colored rags and bad music, to cajole and steal from the plantation dwellers into fear and obedience.

    But the real magic is making the victims of the royal scam beg for more.

    All the media is approved media. Ok? Please tell me that y’all finally understand that when I’ve said here on many occasions that everything over the corporate media infrastructure is pre-approved by either CIA or State. Please get it. Please. If you only knew how bad it really is. If you only knew. None of the names mentioned here, and throw in tucker have ever told you that there are solutions outside of government saving us from government. It’s all propaganda, pro government propaganda. Please get it! Nobody on media will ever offer a solution to anything outside of seeking government. That’s the job, to keep you needing the State religion. Please get it. It’s propaganda.

    How can men, learned men in Soviet history, readily and easily accept that the propaganda was total and often effective there, but then listen and watch it here and suspend disbelief for that little taste of cultish hope? Please tell me that you get now.

    Those “conservatives” that say “violence never accomplishes anything (or, gets you nothing)” are lacking “objectivity” (or willfully forgetting world history from the earliest records of civilization).

    History teaches (me) that if the instigator of violence survives the defensive moves and counter attacks of those who possess the object of the violence – then the instigator gets what they want. … E.G., control of local “unlawful” or “lawful” activities including “taxation” in whatever form; … or in the case of the “shot heard round the world” (4-19-1775) – the ability to establish a new form of government; … or in the case of suppressing an insurrection, say in the form of secession of states, the ability to compel submission to a centralized form of government, …

    And then there are the organized, spontaneous protests a la BLM, Antifa, … (dare I say) Hitler’s Nazi Party … (What could the objective there be ? Were they achieved ?)

    It is somewhat humorous that when “conservative pundits'” income streams are threatened by the possibility that they have no capacity to serve as “wartime consiglieres” (“devoid of ambition and dispenses disinterested advice”) they advocate for patience. … Somewhere in that statement I suspect there is an analogy to how the Democrats have kept the “black Americans” on “the plantation” ever since they were emancipated (wait that was a Republican that emancipated them; could it be the “Civil War” was not about slavery but “control” ?).

    I totally agree, Herschel. I desire to live at peace with all men, as far as it depends on me. Sometimes, though, the universal language of violence is the only one some people will hear and respect. I always found it a bit odd
    that people venerate the founders of our country and put them up on a high pedestal, but then turn around and condemn those who would dare to take a just stand against the abuses perpetrated by the U.S. government today.
    Apparently they don’t grasp that the founders were considered traitors and rebels against the ruling government of the day. They felt so strongly that they actually picked up weapons and killed agents of that ruling government. Apparently all of the patriotic things we feel and sing about on July 4th were won with Yankee Doodle, magic pixie dust, and good thoughts, rather than guns, balls, and violence. Those people would most certainly condemn the founders if they had done their deeds today rather than back in the 1700’s.

    Pretty encouraging to see exactly how much the “leadership” of our side really doesn’t believe in anything it previously said, isn’t it? Those that didn’t call for the murder of the protestors only fellated the state and demanded prosecutions. Guess we know who will be joining the new KGB/Red Guards and become its most fanatical and ferocious enforcers.

    “War is the continuation of politics by other means” – Carl von Clausewitz

    For those who don’t know, Carl von Clausewitz is widely considered one of the finest military thinkers ever to have lived, certainly in the top dozen or so most influential military minds of all time. His masterful treatise, “On War,” is essential reading for those intent upon understanding what has been called the “ultimate trade” as plied by its ultimate practitioner – man himself.

    If you’ll forgive the vulgarity, the hand-wringers and sky-is-falling chicken little types don’t have the sense to pour warm spit out of a boot. They’re fools and idiots of the worst kind – those who are convinced of their own brilliance. What’s more – they’re cowards and probably afraid of their own shadows.

    How bad is it? Bad, very bad. If it interests you, consider picking up “Legacy of Ashes: The History of the CIA,” (2007, Doubleday) by Tim Weiner. Bearing in mind that none of the worst stuff still under wraps has been released, what is now in the public domain is none-the-less hair-raising stuff.

    Pretty much since the Dulles Brothers era of Eisenhower and the 1950s, the agency has been out-of-control and off its leash. Ike’s famous farewell address in which spoke of the dangers of the military-industrial complex were not pro forma; the warnings were very real. Likewise, Ike’s predecessor Harry Truman – who had signed the executive order forming the CIA – later stated that he wished he had not done so. The plain-spoken and hard-nosed Missourian knew he’d made a big mistake.

    The CIA has been influencing media content in the biggest newspapers, magazines and electronic media outlets since the mid-late 1950s and “Operation Mockingbird.” That was more than sixty years ago, and if you believe things have gotten ‘better’ since then, I’d like to sell you a bridge and I’ll throw in some prime swampland, too.

    The CIA charter specifically forbids the agency from operating on U.S. soil or against American citizens, but those rules went out the window when the Patriot Act was signed.

Trump was the best president Wall Street and Israel ever had.

The vaccines will continue to cull those Gates, Fauci, the Bilberbergers, and the Obama Cabal have deemed useless eaters.

    We’re approaching a time in this country when violence will be the order of the day, they have left us no choice. That is unless you wish to live on your knees.
    There will be no avoiding collateral damage. Expect losses. No war was ever won without losses.

    @Sisu: “…could it be the “Civil War” was not about slavery but “control” ?


    “Lincoln couldn’t, of course, shut down foreign newspapers, and the view from across the pond is enlightening. Virtually every European newspaper of the day thought the cause of the U.S. Civil War was ‘tariff and trade policy’, not ‘slavery’. The U.S. heavily tariffed manufactured imported cotton goods. The South produced cotton as its major crop, sold it to whomever would pay the going price, and that cotton would become shirts and other white goods in the mills of England, Massachusetts, and Connecticut, but the products arriving from Europe were exorbitantly priced due to the added tax. Eventually, Europe stopped buying cotton from America because they weren’t selling any product there, switched to Egyptian cotton, and left the South with only one place to sell their output: the North. The North, now with no competition for the South’s cotton, could squeeze the South on price. It wasn’t slavery that caused the Civil War, it was economics. The South was getting screwed by the North, and everyone (especially in Europe) knew it.”

    @FrankClarke I know; I suspect we mostly share many understandings in common. … But, as second generation on my Father’s side and third on my Mother’s, all came through Ellis Island and stay in NYC, a product of NYC public schools and city university – this history and more of our country was not hidden to me. Yet, I am amazed how many from other states (including the southern) and highly educated through the military do not know of the issue of “states’ rights” vs centralized government in Washington, or that Lincoln was anything but a “national hero” or the reconstruction amendments all have dubious legitimacy given the manner in which they were passed. …

    My point in the first comment (it was late and I was cynical) is it is always about ceding “control” to others knowingly or (mostly) unknowingly.

    Unfortunately, this country’s past success and freedoms were more illusory based on open space and (over the long term) expanding economy, which led most to the attitudes: “you don’t want to know how sausage is made”; “a land of laws not men”; “you can’t fight ‘city hall'”; “that what you pay taxes for”; “the meek shall inherit the earth”; … all readers can contribute their own nonsensical “pearls of wisdom” they’ve heard since first grasping the language.

    Republican Rep.

    I suspect that when they say “you”, they mean the class of people who are both the governed and who foot the bill for their governance. And that governance is done by violence, by the threat of lethal force. Every law enacted is that, a threat of lethal violence against those who oppose it. And that violence is freely dispensed by the armed forces of that government and their select militias, whether police or federal or state agents. So the State relies for its own existence – in the current state of affairs – on the proposition that violence gets the goods, figuratively and literally. And, as Sun Tzu says, supreme excellence in warfare is to win a battle without fighting.

    What has been done cannot be undone in the current system. Hypothetically, lets say T throws a last minute hail mary pass and the ‘republic’ is saved… Thats well and good but so what! Why would you want to go back to the old system? Income & property taxes, gun laws, endless wars on ‘terror’, drugs, poverty, racism ect, quotas over merit, foreign aid, inter generational welfare, rigged elections, corrupt courts, off-shoring, federal reserve – on and on and on. Unending evil. Why go back, WHY? What, are you going to reform a corpse? Are you going to vote harder next time? lol. Even if all was lollipops and rainbows in our current nation – you will never ever be represented in a polity of 300 million souls!
    I’ll tell you what the answer is and what the goal should be:
    A small nation(s) of like minded folks. Think many Switzerlands.
    Don’t get too into the weeds about details or borders and what if’s. That will all come… as long as smart, patriotic folks have a goal to work towards. A goal that offers a just and free future for your children and generations yet unborn.
