You might mosie on over to FOX website and look for today’s Glenn Beck Show’s Video for this. I never thought I’d hear it, but I did. On the Glenn Beck Show today on FOX News Channel, Glenn Beck reported Alaska Second Amendment groups meeting. The Mistake: Glenn Beck looked into the camera and said, “Violence isn’t the answer.”
Glenn Beck guest Governor Palin then joined him and echoed the words just as much into the camera when it was her turn to speak, “Violence is not the answer.” Oh, well, even a cat loses its equilibrium and will fall out of a tree once in a while and bang his head.
Violence is not the issue. Reminding second amendment purists who invoke due process that ‘violence is not the answer’ is like lecturing Schwarzenegger on getting some exercise. I am most disappointed that both of them would attribute violence to Alaskans who subsist on a spirit of preparedness and anticipate more harassment from their very own servants. The problem today is that such anticipation is proving to be reasonable. With talk of martial law and with a history of servants’ having confiscated guns, a little support for the citizen would be welcome. I am surprised that two people who understand our public servants so very well would even suggest that Alaskans would be ones to throw the first punch, or fire the first shot.
Gun owners, whether they be in Fairbanks or Honolulu, do not seek change at gunpoint, but safety and protection of our independence at counterpoint, depending heavily on due process. Gun owners are not the ones who have circumvented due process, kids. These two ought to know by now that the sovereign are not the problem, nor are they the aggressors; the servants are the problem, and from other reports from FOX today, conrgress critters aren’t to be trusted if they seek Congressional confirmation for new positions if they are unseated in November for pushing health reform. So much for the golden parachutes.
Pleading with the village not to storm the castle with ropes and flaming torches is insulting to the listeners and viewers outside of Alaska who have been so very loyal, very patient and restrained that it seems almost improbable. I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t seen it with my own viewing eyes.
Am I standing on a single-issue sort of thing? Well, as a matter of fact, it sort of has to be, since the only way to really understand liberty is to comprehend who is the sovereign above all others and how that sovereignty is backed. [In a legal sense, the sovereign can do no wrong, a legalese [sovereign immunity] formerly reserved for the King. Here, we are King, and officials are not. Sovereign immunity as a doctrine was partially abrogated by judicial decisions; the rest is incompatible with our liberty, and as servants, they may not quarrel with our right to keep and bear arms. This is no encouragement to break the law, but to understand that gun control breaks the law in restraining the sovereign: Us. All gun control is a challenge to our sovereignty. This is why there can be no such thing as a legal or sensible gun law.]
To plead with Alaskans for calm is to believe that Alaskans are the aggressors and to forget who is the sovereign. Whatever generated the second amendment meeting has to be discovered in context before presuming that Alaskans will be instigating something and not reacting or reasonably expecting something. How is a ‘meeting’ to be an indictment or a presumption that second amendment liberty purists need to be admonished?
Without understanding that context and history first, Beck and Palin are one step away from asking Americans to disarm when they actually believe it necessary for them to say to us that violence is not the answer.
I don’t have to explain whether violence is or isn’t an answer to something, because violence wasn’t the issue. What has happened?
