“We may not live in fear of nuclear annihilation, but as long as nuclear weapons exist, we are not truly safe.” Wait. Did those words come out of the mouth of the President of the United States? Surely the President who doesn’t take a you-know-what without the nuclear launch codes nearby is down with the concept of mutually assured destruction (MAD). You annihilate me, I annihilate you; let’s forget the whole thing and get some lunch. MAD’s the only thing that’s been standing between us and World War III for 68 years. President Obama doesn’t really believe in de-nuking the world, does he? Then again, it makes perfect sense when you factor in his stance on gun control. Safety. Reform. Whatever. Think of it this way . . .
“We may not live in fear of a spree killer, but as long as assault weapons exist, we are not truly safe.” Or “We may not live in fear of armed criminals, but as long as illegal guns exist, we are not truly safe.”
Fixed it for ya—in the sense that you fix a dog that you want to breed.
None of this disarmament stuff is logical or rational. It’s impractical. Inadvisable. As the son of a Holocaust survivor it’s almost inconceivable. (But not quite.) Clearly, the President and the rest of the gun grabbers can make make that Evil Knieval-like leap of logic. Otherwise, why would they say it?
Of course, we all know that President Obama and the rest of the civilian disarmament industry don’t really want to eliminate guns. They want the cops and soldiers to have firearms. That way they can eliminate gun violence and create a police state—that they would call something else. Like . . . the United States of America. Or something.
Anyway, now I’m not so sure. The Prez’s no-nukes nonsense has got me thinking that the proto-fascist utopianism that motivates gun grabbers is worse than I imagined. They really do believe that we should work towards a world without guns (and nukes). It’s not just propaganda. It’s get-the-strait-jacket-level self-delusion.
Dangerous self-delusion. Whether on a national or person scale, unilateral disarmament means only one thing: surrender. You don’t have to disarm me to defeat me. I’ll do it for you. Like I said, nuts.
Nuts to that. You disarm. Never again isn’t just half of a James Bond movie title in my house. The President assertion that it’s in America’s interest to reduce our nuclear arsenal—slowly moving towards the point where his pal Putin might fancy his chances on the whole waging war thing—is as scary as his insistence that average Americans don’t need “weapons of war.”
Hell YES we do.
Just as much as our freedom-loving country needs nuclear subs, bombers and missile silos. Can you say deterrence? Do these people even know what the word means? Alternatively, the President does know what it means. He doesn’t want to de-nuke America. Nor does he want to disarm Americans. He was just politicking; sayin’ that stuff to appeal to his base.
President Obama knows that evil people are out there. That America is—Americans are—the guardians of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That we need to be strong, and be seen to be strong, both as a country and as individuals. He understands the importance of nukes and firearms.
It’s not like Barack Obama’s been brainwashed to hate America or Americans or anything. Oh wait . . .
