Last Monday there was a large pro-gun rally in Virginia’s capital. It turns out many freedom-loving Virginians aren’t exactly enamored with state gun laws, and have finally figured out that tyranny is at least as liable to arrive through the rule of law as it is to arrive in spite of it. When it comes to tyranny and totalitarianism, arbitrary rule is as often the exception as the rule. In many, if not most, totalitarian societies, the rule of law is largely intact. It is the laws themselves that are the problem.
Before the rally had even begun, the FBI was arresting White nationalists willy-nilly all over America. And while the FBI was running about the country arresting thought-criminals, the lying press was busy blitzing the air-waves with incessant propaganda regarding the rally. There is something of an ongoing White scare in America, if you haven’t noticed. Todd Gilbert, Leader of Virginia House Republicans and shameless cuckservative, took the opportunity, as any good crypto-bolshevik would, to inform those who think differently on controversial subjects that they are simply not welcome in the State of Virginia. Governor Ralph “occasionally a Black man” Northam, for his part, channeled his inner Nicolas Maduro and instituted a “complete weapon ban”, which, if genuinely respected, would have left rallygoers completely and utterly at the mercy of the Washington establishment’s “anti-fascist” shock troops, had they shown up for the rally, as they often do when Americans take to the streets and dare to assemble peacefully, something our half dead Constitution half guarantees.
Yet despite the hysteria and the hysterical decrees that preceded the rally, when the rally materialized, there was, oddly enough, hardly any law enforcement presence at all. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, democratic representative from the great state of New York, where full-blown communism is apparently very popular, implied that this was because the US Government is on the side of White supremacists. Yet nothing could be further from the truth. White supremacists and White nationalists are the perennial bane of the Cultural Marxist state, probably even more so than oath keepers and militia members (though there is some overlap between these groups/categories). Those folks still by and large accept the core values of the Cultural Marxist state: anti-racism, anti-sexism, equality-worship, diversity-worship, etc. They, like neocons and normiecons, are the unwitting allies of their enemies. They profess to oppose tyranny even as they aggressively defend its ideological foundations. They purport to revere tradition but defend the value system destroying it unconditionally. Those types naturally roamed around Monday’s gun rally, embarrassing themselves thoroughly at every turn, by making themselves available to any journalist who would hear them, as they proceeded to denounce “White supremacy” (but not our White supremacist Founding Fathers of course) and “hate” (always ill-defined) and whatever else the left opposes ad nauseum, as if it was going to get them somewhere with their diabolical leftist overlords, when all it really does, is divide the right, thereby weakening us all.
The real reason there was so little police presence at the rally is almost certainly because the government of Virginia and the federal government both, were genuinely terrified of inadvertently inciting a second civil war by overaggressively confronting a massive, heavily-armed crowd. So, in the end, it was much ado about nothing, all wind and no fire. Rallygoers were remarkably civil and perfectly peaceable. They even cleaned up the streets on their own initiative after the rally was over. I think there was but one arrest in all! One stinking arrest!
It is stunning of course to observe the gulf between the repressive tactics of the US Government, on both the state and federal level, along with the massive propaganda campaign instituted by the media in advance of the rally, and the restrained reality of that rally. The panic and hoopla preceding the event were completely disproportionate to the tranquility of the rally itself. Yet the bizarre chorus of state actors and state shills, shuffling to a common tune and bellowing to a common refrain, had to make any reasonable observer entertain the possibility that it was all orchestrated, a giant psy-op as it were: the multiple FBI arrests of “neo-nazis” on what are most definitely trumped up charges, the media blitz, the fake outrage by fake leaders, religious and political, Ralph Northam’s idiotic autocratic decrees, it was all very curious, and it all seemed eerily coordinated.
Now, in the short term, I think the goal of that likely coordinated campaign to delegitimize the rally is obvious. By making the rally seem infinitely more dangerous than it actually was, and by artificially tethering the rally to the omnipresent and omnimalevolent specter of White supremacy, the powers that be legitimized Ralph Northam’s excessive fiats, which would befit any tin-pot communist dictator anywhere on Earth. Doing so also tainted the rally somewhat in the eyes of common folk, likely undermining its vitality. Yet I think the Cultural Marxist US power structure has long-term goals in mind as well. You see, the Cultural Marxist power class wants to link gun rights themselves, not just this particular gun rally, to White supremacy. That way, they can delegitimize gun rights via a grand fallacy of association. Our leftist overlords believe that if they can link those fundamental liberties to a “pure evil” that isn’t (ethno-nationalist political systems are actually quite commonplace around the world), we will gaily tolerate whatever tyranny they have in store for us. If the last hundred years or so of American history is anything to go by, they may very well be right.
After all, the left has already done something awfully similar when it comes to free speech. The left hasn’t the ability to drastically curtail free speech in the government realm (yet), but it has drastically curtailed free speech on the internet, where most speech occurs nowadays anyway. It achieved this by arguing without pause for a full decade or more, that supporting and defending free speech on the internet was tantamount to White supremacy and White nationalism. Hate speech codes are inescapable on the net today, and deplatforming rightist political dissidents is the new normal. Many prominent rightist political dissidents can not even use payment processors anymore to fund their peaceful democratic activities. Powerful leftists and leftist interest groups pressured and persuaded sympathetic Big Tech oligarchs, to censor and thereby democratically neuter the political right, and they have done precisely that on a scale that easily rivals government action. They presented to those corporate leaders the same basic choice they present to us all: do what you are told, in this case combat “hate speech” (a nonsensical Marxist concept completely incompatible with free speech), or you are abetting White supremacy. They do not need to put their ideological allies to the choice in the same way, or apply the same degree of pressure, but the basic format is the same. Of course, not even this is enough for the ADL which recently asked for government action to rein in so-called “hate speech” on social media.
That is the same bargain the Cultural Marxist power class has been offering Americans since the 1960’s. In truth, it is not so much a bargain as a scam. Either you forfeit your right to hire and fire who you please, or else you’re a racist. Either you forfeit the right to sell your own property to who you please, or else you’re a racist. Either you forfeit your right to freedom of association, or else you’re a racist. It’s the same scam, but the stakes have just been raised. Now the offer is: either you cede your Second Amendment rights and the subject of those rights to your benevolent government, or you are a racist, or at the very least, an enabler of racism and White supremacy. Here are some articles that came up with a Google search for “Second Amendment White Supremacy” (without quotes):
Joshua Manson, “The Second Amendment Has Always Been a Tool of White Supremacy” Teen Vogue (August 12, 2019).
Jeremy Scahill, “White Supremacy and the Church of the Second Amendment,” Intercept (February 28, 2018).
Lois Beckett, “‘Dying of whiteness’: why racism is at the heart of America’s gun inaction,” The Guardian (August 9, 2019).
Gun rights are about keeping White men on top,” Washington Post (March 9, 2018).“
Tyranny is not only presented as a reasonable price to pay to defeat [White] racism, it is presented as the only rational option. After all, what can White supremacists do with their essential rights save abuse them? If we are to secure the temple of diversity must we not disarm its enemies? For make no mistake, the Cultural Marxist state would love to disarm and disable those who truly reject its core tenets (White nationalists). Indeed, it would like to disarm and disable even its nominal foes (ordinary conservatives). As a matter of fact, the many new “red flag” laws (like the one recently passed in Virginia, which was being protested against at the gun rally), as they have been termed, will themselves be used as a pretext for law enforcement all over America to confiscate the guns of “dangerous dissidents” (aka any conservative alive). It will not happen to all of us, but understand it will happen to plenty of us, and it could happen to any of us, and if you are expecting due process, don’t, because you won’t be getting any. In the eyes of the US power structure, we are all of us guilty merely by existing, and we are already being disarmed, slowly but surely.
The media blitz and the spate of FBI arrests and the whole coordinated operation are intended to corral us all into the proper pen. Since we supposedly must defeat White supremacy at all costs, and since gun rights uphold White supremacy, what other conclusion could a decent and prudent American peon reach? How could you even entertain any other option? You’re not a White supremacist sympathist are you?
In sum, the left’s depraved attempt to link White supremacy (and White nationalism) with gun rights is a very deliberate thing. And while denouncing White supremacy may make life easier for conservative cowards, it does not advance the interests of the political right or secure gun rights. Right-leaning Americans can not extricate themselves from their association with White supremacy in the minds of the good-thinking liberals who parrot their masters in the elite media and academic world, no matter how much denouncing and disavowing they do. The lying press will never allow it. That is a fruitless trail to tread.
Moreover, if the left succeeds in linking White nationalism to gun rights, even substantially, and it will do everything it can to do so, then every pointless and overzealous denunciation of White nationalism by conservatives and their ilk, inadvertently undermines gun rights. Indeed, if “White nationalism” is truly that evil, and everyone agrees on that (even righties), then how could anyone defend something made to seem so inseparable from it? It would make more sense from a strategic standpoint for righties to rehabilitate White nationalism, given the inchoate association. Ultimately, our leftist overlords are betting that Americans will eventually surrender anything and everything they possess, including their most essential freedoms, to avoid being [labeled] racist. Only time will tell if the Cultural Marxists have finally overplayed their hand.
