Welfare rights are pseudo-rights: They rely on the force of law to take private property for the use of others without compensation and without consent. Public charity is forced charity; it is not a virtue but a vice.
I recently posted some sarcastic gallows humor about American patriots “dealing with” government thugs coming to take our firearms. And yeah, it was sort of a bit of feel good patriotism. But it was just and nothing more than a bit of sarcastic humor. Let nobody believe that when – and it’s no longer if, unless we remove the Democrats – the government decides that the 2nd Amendment is moot and begins fully or mostly disarming the People, that it’ll be in a way where the majority of the citizenry will do anything about it.
In other words, this man is wiser than most of us.
Fuck Around And Find Out
The phrase, “Fuck Around And Find Out” has been gaining a lot of exposure and popularity across social media among Americans of or near my age. Apparently, Americans of Generation Jones and Generation X have co-opted the phrase from the Farther Left. Indeed, there’s a lot of my people using the phrase in response the Democrat gun-grabbers’ voiced desires.
The problem is that so many of us are forgetting that this applies to us as well and equally. Do nothing now, before the Democrats can get their de facto firearm confiscations underway is “Fucking Around” and we, the People could easily end up “Finding Out” exactly what that means for us, our children, and our children’s children.
If we look on and do nothing now, by the time we do do something to defend ourselves, or Heaven-granted rights, and our families, it’ll be far too little and far too late. And our domestic enemies know this and are counting upon it.
Now that you’ve ceded authority to the government for the supposed sake of your safety and everyone else’s once, what now? What about the next time the would-be dictators, benevolent or not, want to strip your constitutional rights away under the penumbra of it being for your health and safety and that of everyone else?
You’ve Set A Precedent
You’ve set a precedent, a precedent that the government at any level can freely violate most parts of the 1st Amendment if they rationalize it as being for the sake of public. Precedents are hard to overturn once established, especially if they’ve been accepted by any court.
And, when a precedent favors the government by expanding their control, it will be used again, each time with a little broader scope or in a context a little further away from whatever crisis was the basis for setting that precedent.
In the same hour-long “exit interview” with Oprah Winfrey in which Michelle Obama lamented that Donald Trump’s election victory stole all hope from those demographics Michelle and Barack support, enable, and pander to she also had some “interesting” things to say about the role of the POTUS, specifically her husband’s role in that office.
He and I and so many believe that – what else do you have if you don’t have hope? What do you give your kids if you can’t give them hope?
I feel Barack has been that for the nation in ways that people will come to appreciate. Having a grown-up in the White House who can say to you in times of crisis and turmoil, ‘Hey, it’s going to be okay. Let’s remember the good things that we have.’
— Michelle Obama
Michelle has now voiced and interesting and quite telling opinion. Then, stress and/or tragedy tend to lower one’s inhibitions and cause the truth of what one is and one believes to come out into the light. And of course, the truth of Michelle and her beliefs are rather repugnant to the American people and much more than a little hypocritical coming from her.
The State Is Mother, The State Is Father
You can’t get past the fact that if Obama is “grown-up in the White House,” then we, the People are children – often unruly, needy children – in Michelle’s mind. That’s not just insulting; it’s downright dangerous because that the mindset that empowers the nanny state and leads to the most pernicious and persistent forms of despotism.
In the outgoing FLOTUS’ defense, if one looks at many of her husband’s constituency, the idea that they are unruly, needy children who desperately require and demand parental guidance and attention is not too far-fetched. If, as is likely given her history, Michelle bases her opinion of Americans on them, it’s understandable that she would believe they need the State as mother and father. They obviously need something by way of aid and comfort.
The problem, however, is it is the same sort of failed parenting that produced these snowflakes that is exemplified by the majority of Liberal social policies. As such, this is not a philosophy that can be allowed to take hold in our national discourse.
So Very Offensively Insensitive
Still, Michelle’s rare, honest views are not without their humor or, at the very least, delicious irony. Looking at them from the borrowed viewpoint of many of her husband’s constituency, they’re very offensively insensitive to the experiences and narratives of both Blacks and Womyn.
Given that in any given year in recent memory 66% – 75% of Black offspring do not a have a father in residence, bastardy having become their cultural since the “success” of the 1950s – 1960s “Civil Rights” movement, the FLOTUS’ casual normification and valorization of a father figure is at best racially tone deaf and at worst an endorsement of White Privilege and a tacit remonstration of Black Culture.
Similarly, Michelle’s comment could quite easily be considered as horrifically offensive and insensitive to the plight of the current wave of Feminist womyn inside America’s borders. With the FLOTUS essentially casting Obama in Robert Young’s role, it would seem that she has normalized the “Patriarchy” with Obama being the wise and caring father figure and the head of the should that America represents to Michelle.
Pretty much, if she wasn’t the First Black First Lady she would have been excoriated for this lament with its insensitivity to the special needs of much of her husband’s constituency. But then, her husband enjoyed similar leniency throughout his tenure because he was a Black.
