Singleton: To Be Disarmed Is To Be Powerless, And That’s Dangerous

Guns laws always disproportionately impact Black people, and when we’re told new gun laws are to stop violence, don’t believe it.

If we want to stop violence in our cities, we must build up the Black family and the value it adds to building a stronger community. We must also become insular in our outlook and how we navigate the political space.

There is a need for better jobs, transportation, education, and resources that we must demand the resources to obtain those things for our [community]. Don’t trust [it] will come; we have to demand it.

Violence isn’t rooted in the existence of the gun; it’s rooted in other systemic issues that go mostly ignored, hence why we must deal with our problems as a community to the best of our ability.

With all of that said, remember this: To be disarmed is to be powerless, and that’s a dangerous position to be in.

  1. “To be disarmed is to be powerless, and that’s a dangerous position to be in.”

    This is even more painfully the case today now that the tech lords have kicked away the soap box, fraudsters have stuffed the ballot box, and the weaponized justice system has failed to bring obvious criminals to trial before a jury box. Is it any wonder that it’s hard to find ammo boxes today?

    • Soap Box; Ballot Box;….and, now, Mail Box; Cartridge Box; Pine Box. We have lost what our Founding Fathers gave us via the first three. It will take a liberal….pun intended…..application of the last two to regain and preserve our Liberties, Rights, and Freedoms. All is on the line.

      In Thomas Jefferson’s letter of 1787 to William Stephens Smith, the son-in-law of John Adams, postulates on the newly drafted Constitution and what it will mean. One of his statements succinctly deals with our situation today, and I quote: “What country before ever existed a century and half without a rebellion? And what country can preserve it’s liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is it’s natural manure.!” Our Founding Fathers dealt with a plethora of issues, and provided guidance accordingly; hoping it would never come to this!

      And there, boys and girls, is the Xiden Gun Violence Prevention Plan in a nut shell. It’s all about protecting Socialist tyrannical politicians from American Patriots.

      BROKEN ARROW!!!! BROKEN ARROW!!!! BROKEN ARROW!!! Expend all available ordnance on our coordinates!!!!

  2. According to the world revered Smithsonian this guy sounds like a white supremacist.

    Coca Cola should teach him to embrace the opposite of education, family, empowerment of the self and employment to liberate himself from the shackles of his oppressors.

    • “According to the world revered Smithsonian this guy sounds like a white supremacist.”

      If “White Supremacy” and “Systemic Racism” actually existed to the extent as they claim, that’s a powerful argument for immediately passing 50-state constitutional carry into federal law…

      • Oh yes. As an elderly white man living in Florida, Gun Lovin’ Goof knows everything there is to know about systemic racism.

        • Don’t you think Black Americans would have loved having some guns when the military wing of the democRat Party better known as the KKK came by to terrorize them or likewise when nazi ss thugs marched around with no worries about rounding up unarmed helpless Jews for the slaughter houses? Sounds horrible doesn’t it? Well you are looking at the face of Gun Control.

          What do you say smh @ gth will you join me in holding the democRat Party liable for all of their democRat Party race based atrocities? Atrocities that occurred coast to coast and not just in the South as sneaky democRat Party history rewrites want gullible people to believe.

          I know the democRat Party has worked hard trying to hide their embarrassing past democRat Party race based atrocities by covering up their mess with a trinket promising smiley face. However the stench remaining from their long, long history of race based atrocities never goes away. That is until Justice Is Served.

          All who directly or indirectly endured slavery, segregation, Jim Crow, the KKK, lynching, Eugenics, Gun Control and other democRat Party Race Based Atrocities are owed. If there is anything left in the democRat Party coffers include all of the little mentally abused white kids growing up in the 50s and 60s that had no choice but to witness Jim Crow Bigotry.

          Since the marxist democRat Party gets all giddy about holding so called capitalist pig companies liable for billions in past damages don’t you think it fitting to hold the one remaining race based atrocity political party in the world liable for its long, long history of disgusting race based atrocities?

          Where’s all of this “no justice no peace” “systematic racism” crap when it comes to the laundry list of race based atrocities that belong lock, stock and barrel to the democRat Party?

          Are we to follow the democRat Party party lead that implies every white owes Reparations or are we going to protect the innocent and hold the guilty as sin democRat Party liable for Monetary Reparations? LMK.

    • You need both. It does no good to have knowledge without a means to defend yourself. And it does no good to have the ability to defend yourself without knowing who to defend against or how.

    • “Power comes from knowledge, not the end of a barrel of a gun.”

      Many tens of millions of dead Chinese and Russians people in the past century proves that claim is laughable… 🙁

      • You have to love it when a fat, pasty white sentient crash test dummy like Gun Lovin’ Goof chimes in with his worthless commentary.

        • How does it feel being Geoff’s bitch? Apparently you’re into it, and bully for you I suppose. The world needs bottoms.

        • How *amazing* is that the widdle troll gets his bitch-ass kicked into next week on such a consistent basis!

          It’s like *nobody* agrees with it!

          What a pathetic loser you are! Why don’t you make the all the pain go away and just kill your self? 😉 😉 😉

      • “All political power comes from the barrel of a gun. The communist party must command all the guns, that way, no guns can ever be used to command the party.”
        Mao Tse-tung

  3. Liberals hate guns because it does not allow them to have control over people so they will try to disarm Americans to take away our freedom under the 2nd Amendment and our power to keep our freedom as free Americans. They will then turn around and use guns to control conservatives whom they identify as terrorists. If we conservatives do not stand up to liberals’ evil politics to control us, we will loos our gun rights, our 2nd Amendment of the constitution and become their slaves, threatened by their liberals laws, and fearful for our lives under their socialist and communist government.

  4. I said pretty much the exact same thing yesterday on this website:

    “The root of the problem [rampant violent crime in urban population centers] is the near-complete elimination of the nuclear family and traditional values.

    When millions of single mothers — often young teenagers — produce children and fail to raise those children with love, stability, and traditional values, those children will become the very monsters that we see in our nation’s urban Hellscapes.”

    Until society tackles the real problem, everything else will fail to significantly reduce violent crime in our urban population centers.

    • Race peddlers pushing the victim narrative doesn’t help either. Growing up believing that your station in life is stymied by the fact that your ancestors were slaves (and therefore being born in America as opposed to Ghana) allows you to rationalize the most vile behavior. Sort of the exact opposite of the traditional Judeo-Christian ethic.

    • The Dems do NOT want racial equity. “Racial equity” is their powerful tool to achieve their goals. Dems must have victim group (blacks, rainbow, confused “its”,”hair on fire we’re all gonna die” incompetents, social do-gooders, et el….ala divide and conquer strategy), a scary bad group (functioning, productive, Constitution loving, God fearing Americans,…), and their positioning as the protector/savior to achieve their agenda of control. power, wealth. Turn the victims into Government Plantation Dwellers via Santa Claus free shit dependency. To Dems, racial equity means to slow the productive citizens down to the dependency level of the victims.

      • “Dems must have victim group”

        I am a victim of liberal victimization.

        How is it my fault that I am smarter, better looking, and own much more ammo than they do?

        How is it my fault that I am a better shooter, revel in my whiteness and believe in the Constitution?

        How is it my fault that I am a producer instead of a typical mealy mouthed democrat on the dole?

        How is it my fault that God looks kindly upon me, but democrat loving Satan hates my guts?

        How is my fault that I can think for myself, as opposed to regurgitating talking points?

        IT IS ALL SOCIETY’S FAULT…

        I demand reparations, in the form of more ammo and guns…. 🙂

        • Obviously yo’ mamma’s and daddy’s, with you included for good measure, faults. Sleazy, crazy senile ole Joey and Kameltoe have the cure for you. Trust and believe.
          Reparations approved!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  5. OK one more time: There are five things you should never do and one always
    1) Never thing you know it all
    2) Never allow yourself to be disarmed spiritually or physically
    3) Never get on the bus (wear the mask, take the jab, get the chip, go FEMA)
    4) Never stop improving your situation
    5) Never quit
    Always seek His face, hear His voice, obey His will – QED

  6. Well said Mr. Singleton(well except for the “gimme” list). The Dim’s want “racial equity” BS. Already happened…

    • Remington/Bushmaster ACR.

      He’s also obviously paid his $200 to get permission to make it extra evil/deadly/assault-y by having the barrel shorter than the sacred, non-cancer causing, Wizard-of-Oz designated & approved 16″…

  7. Hey fellas have you heard the news
    You know that Joe’s back in town
    It wont take long just watch and see
    How he takes gunm owners down

    His style is new but the face is the same
    As it was so long ago
    But from his eyes a different smile
    Like that of one who knows
    Lawbreaker, lawbreaker, break.

  8. You can’t truly call yourself “peaceful” unless you’re capable of great violence, if you’re not capable of violence you’re not peaceful, you’re harmless.

    • The last time I heard that concept articulated the absolute butthurt involved made suffering through the sociology course worthwhile. Thank you for reminding me of a fun scholastic meltdown.

    • Not only harmless, but helpless also.

      Never heard that particular turn of phrase before. I’m going to store that one away in the ol’ memory banks.

  9. Throughout history Freedom and Liberty has been attained and preserved at the point of a sword, spear and firearm. The only reason for those in Control to disarm a populace is to ensure they never attain Freedom and Liberty from the Tyranny of those in Control. Your Freedom begins and ends at the point of a sword, spear, or firearm. Either you lay them down willingly out of Fear or Complacent Cowardice in exchange for continued life albeit under the Boot of Tyranny, Or you choose to Stand and Fight with the point of a sword, spear or firearm. Doing so with the knowledge that your Courageous Sacrifice may cost everything including you life. Choosing to do so for something greater than yourself. That Freedom and Liberty may be passed down to your children and their children’s children as was passed down to You. On the Blood and Sacrifice of those who Stood, Fought and Yes Died for something greater than themselves. Freedom and Liberty. Mere words have never won the day when the end game is either Enslavement or Freedom. History has shown that and will show so again. Which will be the future of “We the People”. Keep Your Powder Dry.
    P.S. Remember We All Die in the End. It’s how We Live and are Remembered that is Our Legacy.

  10. WOW…..one of the absolute best Comments section ever!!!! Lotta wisdom and truth conveyed. But, it’s only words on a screen until we act. Our Founding Fathers would already have been finished shooting a second time. America has been over run from within without a shot being fired. Sadly, blacks…and large growing segment of non-blacks…..have become the Useful Idiots of the Libtards/Socialist attack from within. The play call…..victims, scary bad guys, the “protectors”…..aka divide and conquer.

  11. There is a need for better jobs, transportation, education, and resources that we must demand the resources to obtain those things for our [community]. Don’t trust [it] will come; we have to demand it.

    Turned into $100 bills each, all the grains of sand in the world will not buy a solution to America’s problems created by the Dems. I’m tired of paying for “better jobs, transportation, education, and resources”. Borrowing/paraphrasing from Obummer………”The Dems’ bull shit isn’t shovel ready.” Only personal initiative, personal responsibility, effective parental imprinting and guidance, et el will solve the problems……..all of which the Dems’ plan has worked effectively to eliminate from the repertoire of the Government Plantation Dwellers……aka blacks…..and a growing segment of non-blacks…..the Useful Idiot Legions.

  12. “To be disarmed is to be powerless”

    It certainly seems like a lot of YBMs have taken this to heart. Otherwise, they’d be launching drive-by spitballs.

  13. TRUE HOW TO TEACH / HELP PEOPLE NOT TO HARM OTHERS WITH A GUN OR ANY WEAPON , EXCEPT SELF DEFENCE .
    I KNOW DREAM ON AND ON .
    PEOPLE HURT / KILL OTHER PEOPLE NOT THE WEAPON FAULT .

  14. The best thing a black person can do for themselves is to stop thinking like a “white Liberal”. Stop accepting the thought process of the white socialist progressive’s. Two decades ago Walter Williams, RIP, wrote an opinion piece complaining that white Liberals were working to turn black people into “white Hippies”.

    In order to get the White Liberal money donations, the civil rights black leadership began to eschew the second amendment. So law abiding blacks began to give up gun ownership. However the black criminal class has never given up gun ownership.

    Accepting gun ownership is a first step to rejecting white Liberal thinking. And reject the thinking of the “white sexually liberated”. Both would be a good thing for black people.

  15. Systemic… Communities…

    Small subtle hints of race baiting lose me everytime. I get it, your black, you want to reach other black folk… It’s just hard for me to give a fuck when your purpose is race driven and “demands” “equality”.

    Drop the race crap. Join the rest of us who “demand” freedom, then maybe you will see we are part of the same “community”. I grew up around folks like this, and I grew apart from them for that reason too. Diversity is chaotic, and it’s never equal. We are numbers, not races.
