TTAG reader Phuqit (not his real name) left this underneath our April post Quote of the Day: A European Discovers America’s Gun Culture…And is Horrified:
Most Europeans have been raised in cultures that are saturated with leftist, socialist, nanny state values. The result of that is that they are used to being told what values are to be considered civilized and acceptable.
They have been flagellating each other with superficial, phony manifestations of guilt that has been trained into them as the proper response to their colonial history of exploiting, subjugating, and committing mass murder against other people who either believed differently or live the life that Europeans deemed more primitive than theirs: and thereby worthy of extermination.
The sad thing about the supposedly “civilized” Europeans is that they have conditioned the impulse for unbridled freedom without government permission right out of their societies.
Those who believe that human beings who are adults have the God-given and natural right to be free to do everything within their ability, without regard to the permission or approval of the government or others–so long as it doesn’t harm or kill other human beings– are seen as outliers, rogues, antisocial, or some other sort of pejorative term for nonconformists to the pacifist, gonad-less norms.
Unfortunately most of them don’t recognize what sheep they have become until some wonderful “migrant” is sodomizing their son, raping their wife or daughter, shooting up their church, murdering the Jews in their midst, or some other violence is being perpetrated upon them and they are incapable of exercising the most basic human right: the right of self-defense in order to preserve your own existence.
With the exception of Switzerland, because the Swiss recognize that every citizen must be armed, and equipped–mentally, physically, and emotionally–to use a weapon to protect themselves, their families, their neighbors, and their nation–Europe will either undergo some massive social reawakening regarding fundamental freedoms and basic natural rights, or it will find itself at the inevitable destination of the road that it is now upon: Eurabia.
They will be stabbed, raped, run-over with vehicles, blown up with explosives, shot dead, or have some other act of violence perpetrated upon them and their society that will drive them into the dustbin of history.
America was founded by people who recognized the fundamental nature of the natural God-given freedoms and rights into which we are all born by legacy. Quite fortunately there are still a preponderance of American citizens who will defend to the death against those who would European-ize our values into the socialist failure of the government of nearly every European nation.
No one in Sweden is ranting and raving loud enough about the fact that Swedish society is accepting of the fact that statistically speaking 25% of the female population in that sad nation will be raped–without doubt. Why human beings would accept that is what shocks ME exponentially more than exposure to the freedoms that we enjoy as Americans shocked our little European snowflake.
I, for one, will not “go gently into that good night,” but I will indeed “rage, rage against the dying of the light!” I might be found dead, lying in a ditch one day, but I guarantee that I will be lying in a pile of brass. There are many adjectives that I find appropriate to describe myself, but one mantle that I will never allow to be placed upon my existence is that of “victim.” Si vis pacem, para bellum!
