Tools In The Service Of Tyranny

What does a virus, a Marxist movement, and bans on firearms have
in common? Nothing, superficially. Delving deeper, they are tools of
federal oppression.

An obvious common element of the three tools is the fear they engender:
of infectious death; of unchecked rioting and looting; and of gun
violence. These dangers are in fact greatly exaggerated or fabricated
altogether.

Stanford economist Paul Romer is credited with first saying, “a crisis is a terrible thing to waste.”

Washington has taken this idea to heart.

In
2019, when no crisis existed, the Washington establishment created the
perception of existential threat from COVID that would kill 2.2 million Americans without drastic federal intervention.

In fact, COVID carried a risk for the general, healthy
population similar to seasonal flu and was only dangerous to elderly,
immunocompromised individuals with pre-existing conditions. Biden,
Fauci, and the media made it seem as if we all would die if we did not
follow Washington draconian orders for lockdowns, social distancing, and
vaccine mandates.

Fauci commanded Americans to put aside concerns about “personal liberties
for the greater public welfare. We had to accept federal suppression of
constitutionally guaranteed rights such as free speech, religious
liberty, right to assemble, and even right to work to defeat the “common
enemy.”

The “swamp” used fear of COVID as a tool to impose pseudo-martial law.

Biden
COVID mandates exceeded federal authority. They are unconstitutional,
as the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals recently reminded Washington. Public
health measures are state, not federal, responsibility.

BLM (Black Lives Matter) is a proudly Marxist, domestic
organization hiding behind the obvious slogan that the lives of black
people matter – just as the lives of all people matter. Yet the Biden
administration has tolerated the violencearsonlooting, and even murder by armed BLM agitators in all-black garb and ski mask anonymity.

Washington and Biden’s DoJ tacitly condone BLM’s domestic terrorism for
one reason: it promotes an atmosphere of fear and insecurity. This led
to cries to the federal government: Do Something, Anything! In response,
they changed or suspended rules, laws, and constitutional rights using
violence in the name of social justice as an excuse. Washington
encouraged defunding local police departments while offering federal
“policing” for local communities.  

Washington’s tolerance and covert encouragement of BLM is another way to justify extending federal power and reach.

When
the Bill of Rights was written, there was no real difference in
military power of a state militia compared to the Continental army. They
both had muskets, handguns, bayonets, horses, and even cannon. The
Second Amendment does not use words such as “may” or “should” or
“cannot.” It reads “shall not [italics added] be infringed” is a simple, unambiguous, and unarguable command.

The
Founders wanted private citizens to have the military capability to
resist central government attempts to reimpose tyranny on its citizens.
Thus, after free speech and religious independence, the next most
important “right” was to keep and bear (use) firearms, in armed defense, if necessary, of personal liberty and American freedom.  

This
is why Democrats seek to circumvent the Second Amendment and take away
guns from private citizens. Gun bans are another tactic of federal
oppression.

In progressive hands, COVID, BLM, anti-gun laws, and many others are tools in the service of tyranny... if we allow it.
