Mike Vanderboegh links this Zerohedge piece where the following statement is apparently made by someone affiliated with some self-proclaimed militia.
“You see an illegal. You point your gun dead at him, right between his eyes, and you say, ‘Get back across the border or you will be shot.’ …We are not worried about an ‘International’ incident.”
In the clearest possible terms, let me make the following statement to whoever said this: You … are … an … idiot!
Mike further says this:
And if I cannot convince you that the border situation is not the immediate threat that you have to worry about — if you think I am, as some have called me, a “traitor” because I refuse to endorse a precipitate rush to the border — then, okay, fine. But please, do us all a favor and lose the boogeyman face paint. Because Bob is correct, you do look like “dangerous foolish children playing dangerous foolish games.”
Mike is a nice guy, but I’m not. If you are the one wearing paint or doohickey’s around your face, I don’t really care what you think about me or what I’m writing.
But just to pull these threads a little more, those who rushed to the border to stop this catastrophe use your eyes, but you don’t see. You listen, but you don’t hear. You cannot discern the signs of the times because you think you control too much and trust yourself and your power more than you should.
God will humble you, as He will us all. And now I’ll invoke my theological views, and if you don’t want to read this analysis because of that, you’ve been warned. Stop reading now, and don’t whine and bitch in the comments about my theology. I’m not interested. I’ll just delete the comments.
There are times and epochs when God judges nations and peoples. We are in one of those times. The innocent will suffer in the wake of his judgment, for this isn’t personal judgment – it is corporate. He will not let nations get away with what we’ve done without paying the cost.
The threat of illegals may not be immediate, but it is existential and the things that threaten America will prove fatal. Illegal immigration and an evil president are only symptoms of the problem. God has commanded that nations not live with insurmountable debt and usury, and yet our entire economic system is based on that. God has commanded us to protect the little ones, and yet millions have been aborted since the “freedom” provided to women in Roe v. Wade. God commands men to work, and calls one who doesn’t provide for his own “worse than an infidel.”
And yet, there are 92 million Americans who are not in the labor force. The number of unemployed Americans increases by more than 100,000 every month. What are you going to do, militia? Shoot every last one of those 100,000 every month? They represent the same sort of existential threat to the American system as the illegals crossing the border.
You cannot change things. You cannot shoot enough people, you cannot threaten your way to security, you cannot vote your way out of this. The system if beyond repair. America doesn’t exist anymore. It is finished. The seeds of its destruction were sewn long ago and they are coming into bloom as we speak.
It is true that I have recommended that we deploy the Marines to the Southern border with specific RUF/ROE to shoot anyone crossing the border with a weapon, whether they constitute an immediate threat or not. The objection of posse comitatus rings hollow, as border security shouldn’t be seen as a law enforcement function.
But I have also recommended that we see Mexico as an enemy state, close the border to commercial traffic, stop trade and eject all illegals. Those things will not happen because America lacks the heart to protect its children, heritage, or the integrity of its laws.
My late professor, Dr. C. Gregg Singer, said:
That the Western mind is sick unto death and that Western culture and the civilization to which it gave birth are in serious danger of collapse are facts that have become so evident that few observers are prepared to dispute this conclusion and argue for their vitality (From Rationalism to Irrationality, Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing Company).
This is truth, spoken with sadness of heart, for I knew Singer well. We cannot heal America with furor, we cannot repair what’s wrong with America with our guns. America has a heart problem.
What can we accomplish? We and our guns and ammunition can prepare, plan, protect and secure to the extent God allows, our family, clan and tribe. That should be our focus. Every attempt to heal America will come to failure without a new reformation.
You do have family, clan and tribe, don’t you? They are your first concern, aren’t they?
