Molon Labe

Posted in Politics on January 25th, 2013

μολὼν λαβέ, pronounced moˈLON laˈVE, and sometimes written in the modern age as ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ or Molon Labe is a truly classical and laconic expression of defiance reportedly spoken by Sparta’s King Leonidas I in response to to Xerxes I of Persia’s demand that the Spartans surrender their weapons at the Battle of Thermopylae. It means simply, “Come and take them!”

Molon Labe - ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ - μολὼν λαβέ - Come and Take Them
Molon Labe – ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ – μολὼν λαβέ – Come And Take Them

No matter the orthography, the sentiment is clear and is as true, right, and applicable in the America of 2013 as it was in the Greece of 480 BC. 2493 years don’t change anything of meaning.

The same “offer” is being made to Americans today. Our lives in exchange for our ability to defend both those lives and the liberties that make those lives the lives of free men and women. And the same response must be given to our modern day Xerxes, Obama and to his coterie of Liberal and Progressive gun-grabbers.

Come and take them - Molon Labe – ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ – μολὼν λαβέ Come And Take Them…If You Can

We, the People, the true-born sons and daughters of America, have not rendered offerings of earth and water to our domestic enemies and we are not subject to- or subservient to them.

Liberal “Anti”-Racism

Posted in Politics, Society on January 23rd, 2013

Margo Davidson - Jabbering about Murdering WhiteyLiberal “Anti”-racism is a amazing thing, not in it’s value but in it’s inherent prejudice and bias and it’s foundation of lowered expectations of- and requirement from Blacks. Liberal views on racial relations and “equality” can be summed as the strident call to lower the bar – any bar, even basic civility – for any and all non-White people while simultaneous holding Whites to ever-shifting but always unreachable standards.

Daryl MetcalfeA current example of this particular Liberal failing is their and the MSM pundits’ total silence on the matter of Pennsylvania State Representative Margo Davidson’s (D-164) tacit threat to gun down fellow Pennsylvania State Representative Daryl Metcalfe (R-12) while debating an expansion of PA’s Castle Doctrine, a law allowing lethal self-defense to be used by an armed citizen who feels threatened.

If the gentleman from Butler County stood yelling, knowing that he’s a gun-toter, and I felt threatened, would I be protected under court law if I blew his brains out?

That’s what passes for anti-racism in Liberal and Progressive circles. A Black female asking such a question about a White Man in a public forum, a Legislative forum in point of fact, is not something to commented upon. Yet, can we imagine what would have been the hew and cry from the left and their jabbering Black political sharecroppers if the races had been reversed?

This is also likely an example of Liberal anti-Sexism as well, given that Davidson’s female and Metcalfe is a man. Female bad behavior is normally excused by the Left, especially when directed and Men and/or boys, but the Feminists would have a hysteria-laden field day if it’d been Metcalfe who asked that “question” in reference to a woman.

But that’s thing about the so called anti-racism and anti-sexism measures demanded by America’s domestic enemies. They’re all based up maintaining different standards for different groups and basing those standards upon race and gender as applicable. Indeed, any attempt by Americans to apply a single standard for anything is decried by the left and their minority tenants as being racist and the most common argument that they use is that doing so “disproportionately affects” one or more of their “protected” groups.

Think about that for a moment. It seems to me that either those “protected” groups are incapable of adhering to normal standards and, hence, are undeserving of any sort of protection or the Liberals perceive them to be so. If the latter is true, isn’t that the worst form of racism or sexism?

NOTE: Personally, I have no problems with Davidson’s question. Sometimes hyperbole and shocking statements or questions are necessary to wake people up and get them thinking about the possible ramifications of a proposed or planned course of action. I have a problem solely with the double-standard and the metrics used to form it that the Liberals have concerning such things.

#TGDN Scares #Liberals

Posted in Politics, Technology on January 22nd, 2013

Various Liberals and Progressives on Twitter regularly worked together to silence and remove Americans from that particular social network by flagging them as “spammers” and misusing Twitter’s fully automated spam blocking system to have those Americans’ accounts suspended. This led to the creation of the Twitter Gulag Defense Network (#TGDN) and that scares the runny, stinking shit out of the Liberals and Progressives.

TGDN v. Libtards
Do Not Engage #TGDN Accounts!

Two things to always remember about Liberals and Progressives: they hate it when they can’t use numbers to bring down an inherently greater and better man or woman, and they go absolutely mad when their own preferred tactics are used against them.

It’s ironic that this Zach Green character, a Liberal, advocates segregation as the solution to a group he finds inimical to his own. I thought that they were against that. 😆

I’ll take the victory, lackluster as it is, though. If our domestic enemies refuse to engage, they cannot silence us and have effectively retired in defeat. They can rant and carp to each other to what passes for their hearts’ content and it’ll mean nothing as long as Americans continue to speak truth and patriotism wherever we choose to travel on the web.
