As of 2016, according to the United States Census Bureau, there are approximately 310 million men, women, and children living in the United States of America. Every single dot on this map represents one human life.
According to various sources, including the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), and the Congressional Research Service, there are currently 357 million guns in the United States. There are more firearms than citizens.
According to various sources, including the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), since 1959, the number of American households possessing guns has fluctuated. Estimates range anywhere from as low as 36% to as high as 51%. The FBI revealed Americans applied to purchase more firearms during the Fall of 2015 than any other time in history, and those numbers have gone up ever since, it’s rational to conclude the percentage of households with firearms is closer to the 50% threshold. Even if it were as low as 36% that still means there are over 111 million gun owners in the United States. That is approximately the combined population of:
North Dakota: 672,591
South Dakota: 814,180
New Mexico: 2,059,179
The number of crimes prevented by gun owners every year is difficult to estimate. In April of 2013, The New York Times reported that the Violence Policy Center claimed 67,740 crimes are prevented every year by gun owners. The National Rifle Association claims that number is closer to 2 million. Being such vastly different statistics, let’s compromise and presume 100,000 crimes are prevented yearly by gun owners. That is the approximate population of Norman, Oklahoma.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that approximately 11,208 people are murdered every year with firearms. 11,208 is the approximate population of Webb City, Missouri. Let’s put that in perspective. People who hate guns would make you think those 11,000 lives are all innocent victims, but the truth is that many of them are criminals shot by the police, gangbangers killing rivals in the ghetto, and families protecting themselves from rapists and murderers. That 11,000 also includes every shooting at our schools and churches and movie theatres, every terrorist attack at a Christmas party and military recruiting center, and every crazy college student who goes on a rampage. Everyone. 11,208.
Among our population of 310 million, those 11,000 gun deaths represent one 0.0035% (35 ten-thousands of a percent) of our population. When you realize how few people are harmed by guns, it becomes clear that the motive behind gun regulations isn’t to protect this small fraction of victims. Gun laws are intended to control and subjugate the citizens who own them.
Since guns prevent crimes at least 100,000 times a year, while only 11,000 people are killed, guns protect our families and our children 10 times more frequently than they harm anyone. Banning guns from 310 million citizens, will endanger 100,000 people every year, in an attempt to protect 11,000. Allowing 100,000 people to become victims of rape or murder, in order to protect 11,000 people from harm, many of whom are violent criminals, is illogical and unethical.
You know what kills more people than firearms?
Alcohol. Every year, 29,001 die in alcohol induced deaths. You hear the media use words like “epidemic” to describe gun violence. Twice as many people die from alcoholism as they do from guns. No one ever says alcohol is causing an epidemic. They use that language to manipulate the public. Instead of reporting the facts, they sensationalize reports with carefully chosen words in an effort to condition you.
You know what else kills more people than firearms?
30,208 die from falling every year.
33,804 die annually in car accidents.
46,471 die in drug induced deaths.
51,966 people are killed by accidental poisoning.
53,282 die from pneumonia. That’s right. You’re 5 times more likely to die from pneumonia than being killed by a gun.
But what about the children? People who hate guns always cite the deaths of children as justification to ban guns.
A mere 460 kids between the ages of 0 and 14 die each year in shootings. 460. That is 0.00014% (14 hundred-thousands of a percent) of the population or 1 in 673,913. That means if our population was the size of North Dakota, one child per year would be killed by a gun.
You know what kills more children than guns?
675 kids in that same age group die by drowning. Do parents ever rally to ban swimming? Bathtubs? Does the president try to create more executive orders to protect the children from pool parties? 50% more kids die by drowning than they do by guns! Guns are not an epidemic. Swimming pools are far more deadly to a child.
1,083 kids between the ages of 0 and 14 die each year in car accidents. More than twice as many kids die in cars than they do from guns. Cars kill 135% more kids. Politicians want to sue gun manufacturers if a gun kills a child. But are politicians trying to sue auto manufacturers when a drunk driver uses their car to murder a child?
Worst of all, the highest statistic for murdered children is worse than you think. 380,000 kids are murdered every year by Planned Parenthood. Every year. That is over half the population of Alaska.
460 kids killed by guns. 380,000 children murdered by Planned Parenthood. Here is their own statistic on their own website. Think about that. These people murder more babies in one year than guns have killed in the last century. When a stranger shoots a child, they call it murder. When a mother kills her child, they call it abortion.
You see, my fellow Americans, the mainstream media is deceiving the public. They all have the identical agenda to censor freedom of speech, rob you of your liberties, and outlaw your ability to defend yourself. Hollywood and the news are not being honest with you. These media outlets are manipulating you. Brainwashing you with repetition. Influencing you with rhetoric in order to illicit an emotional response. The politicians are crying crocodile tears. The numbers prove gun violence is a fable and politicians have no justification to vilify firearms. Therefore, the only way they can influence the public is through hysteria and terror. Irrational fear is the only ammunition these treasonous lawmakers have, so they try giving Americans the false impression that all citizens are in constant danger of being a victim.
As a novelist, issues like freedom of the press and weaving fiction are my expertise. When I look at the facts, the fiction of the mainstream media becomes obvious. Historically, an attack on our Second Amendment rights always precedes an attack on the First Amendment. Take away their ability to defend themselves. Then take away their ability to speak out. As a writer and a patriot who believes in our liberty and freedom, I have an obligation to counter these attacks. To speak out. Every time people lose their right to defend themselves, they lose the right to speak their mind. That’s when writers and journalists with integrity start disappearing from their homes in the middle of the night. We are always the first to go. Followed by business leaders, then ordinary families like your own. Gun violence is far worse than you have been told, because everything you have been told is a grotesque lie. Gun violence doesn’t exist. Gun violence is a myth. Study the facts. Educate yourself. Firearms are harmless. Comparatively speaking, alcohol, cars, swimming pools, feminists and slippery floors are far more deadly than guns.
As a writer, I’m really intrigued by language and the way it is used to communicate.
With that in mind, I want to conjure a little story for you. Just imagine that you and your fellow countrymen have decided to colonize a new land. You can imagine it’s another continent or you can pretend it’s a new planet. Whatever you want.
So, there you are, living in this colony. As time goes on, your colony starts to become more and more self-sufficient. You don’t need outside help anymore. The government in your home country is kind of slacking. In fact, as your government starts to give you less and less support they begin to downright harass you. Your friends and neighbors are getting hauled off and convicted for completely unjust criminal offenses. A military occupation is started and soldiers are barging into your homes and stealing your food and assaulting your family members.
Finally, you and some of your neighbors get together and decide you’ve had enough of this tyrannical government. You’re going to start a revolution. You’re going to stand up to these injustices. Now, here’s where the story gets really amazing.
You and your friends are so brave, so badass, that you decide you aren’t going to be some underground, secretive band of guerrilla freedom fighters. No. You actually get together and write it all down. You put your intentions on paper. Then, you make copies of this declaration and you send it off to the leaders of other countries all around the world, including to your own government. On top of all that, every last one of you signs it. You put your names on it!
Now, keep in mind, just because you and your neighbors are pissed off doesn’t mean all your neighbors are on your side. Some of your neighbors still support the tyrannical government. You don’t know everyone in your town. You don’t know how many neighbors are on your side or how many neighbors would betray you. And you just wrote a giant “fuck you” to your dictator, sent copies to the whole world, and signed your name to it!
That sounds like the plot of a crazy Hollywood movie. But it’s not. It’s exactly what really happened when the United States of America composed The Declaration of Independence – the most punkrock essay ever written. This great nation was founded by men with balls of solid rock.
I often wonder, how well do you think those men who signed the Declaration of Independence slept that night?
Can you imagine what they were going through emotionally? Did any of them go running off to the docks at midnight, trying to stop the ships from sailing? “Wait! Wait! I changed my mind! Take my name off the… oh, shit!… Fuck!”
They go sulking back home, “What the fuck was I thinking?”
You can tell how scared everyone was by how small they signed their names. Like they were hoping if the revolution didn’t pan out, maybe no one would notice their signature. And what about John Hancock? That crazy bastard must have been really pissed off. John Hancock must have been insane! He was just like, “Gimmie that quill, bitches! I’ll show you how to sign a fuck you to King George!”
It’s easy for us to look back on history and imagine the way things played out were the only way things could have gone. But of course, that’s never true. Not at all. We might have lost. There was no guarantee we were going to beat the King of England. No one ever had. England was the most powerful empire in the world. Do you know how many countries ever beat the British Empire in a war? With the exception of the Norman invasion, England pretty much kicked everyone’s ass all the time. There were British colonies all around the world because the English were some serious thugs. Historically speaking, there was a really good chance we American Colonies were going to get the crap kicked out of us. King George III was probably going to win. We didn’t stand a chance. If America had lost the Revolutionary War every single man who signed the Declaration of Independence would have been executed. And do you think the tyrannical King of England would have shown mercy to their families? No. If your name was on that list, your wife and your children and your extended family of aunts and uncles and grandparents and cousins would probably be executed too. And most likely, not in a quick and merciful fashion. Probably in a way that would be painful. And take long time. In fact, if you signed the Declaration of Independence and we lost the war, King George III would probably make you watch how he executes your family and kill you last.
The men who signed that document, our founding fathers, were some damn brave motherfuckers.
Today, the Declaration of Independence is just as relevant as it was 200 year ago. We face the same dangers. The same threats. Our freedom and liberty must continue to be carefully safeguarded against the rise of tyranny.
Have you read the Declaration of Independence? I don’t mean in high school when you didn’t give a shit about it. I mean have you read it? Really paid attention to what was being said?
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
That is a damn fine and noble opening. I particularly love the phrase “a decent respect to the opinions of mankind” as it shows a magnanimous tip of the hat to all the world. They were simply explaining that they wanted to be free and this document would tell you why.
The second paragraph is even more impressive.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
Hilarious that there are ignorant people who claim our nation was not founded under religious pretenses when “God” and “Creator” are mentioned in the first two sentences. Notice it says “among these”. In other words, life liberty and the pursuit of happiness are only a few of our unalienable rights. This infers that all men possess additional unalienable rights. I personally declare that among those unnamed rights are the unfettered freedom to speak and write ones opinions, and the right to self-defense through whatever means necessary. Which of course mirror the first two items in the Bill of Rights, but that’s an essay for another day. The declaration goes on to say…
– That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,
Two things to note are “just powers” and “consent” – the powers of government must be justified and fair. It doesn’t say “unlimited powers” or “tyrannical powers” or “oppressive powers” or even “powers” alone; no, it specifically says “just powers”. What is more, these powers derive from the consent of the people. Consent. These just powers do not override the will of the people, such powers only exist with our consent. In other words, the government has no power unless we the people permit the government to have it. And the powers they do possess must be justified. That’s pretty punk rock.
I’ve known some police officers who misguidedly believed that their job was simply to enforce the law. However, this is absolutely not true. The caveat of consent means blind obedience is specifically prohibited. There must be a personal morality at work to define that which is just. Unjust orders or laws need not be tolerated. As government workers, law enforcement personnel can only enforce just powers from the consent of the governed. No one in the government has any power or authority to enforce laws which are unjust nor do the citizens need to conform to injustice. The Declaration of Independence is the founding document and therefore supersedes all other laws, including the Constitution. Members of the military and armed forces all swear an oath to defend and protect the Constitution. But again, they are only imbued with just powers from the consent of the governed. Nothing more. They are under the moral obligation of upholding their oath to defy and refuse to enforce any laws or orders which are immoral or unconstitutional.
In fact, the Declaration of Independence proves this by going on to say the most punkrock stanza of all…
– That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it,
Let me pause here. Let’s think about that. The founders of our nation deemed this a self-evident truth! The very document used to create the United States of America encourages the citizens to destroy the government if need be! Start a revolution – to alter or abolish the government if the government ever stops supporting our liberties. This one line is an astounding statement. How many countries in the history of humanity have ever been that radical? How many nations have been built upon the principal that we will burn this mother down and start over if we have to? Of everything written in the Declaration, that single sentence is more punkrock than any fiction. That one line illustrates a sense of righteousness and determination the likes of which most people have never experienced. It goes on to say…
and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
Once again, the Declaration reiterates that all governmental power is granted through the will of the people. The citizens are the ultimate authority in this great nation. Not kings or courts or judges or politicians or military forces. The people are the ones who determine the course of their safety and happiness and we American citizens possess the sole authority to empower the government to enforce those ideals.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
That is an astonishing statement to place in a political document. Rather than declare a stance or voice an edict, it instead acknowledges a weakness of the human psyche. So much truth and wisdom (plus an esoteric observation of human tendencies) in a single sentence. While the declaration reminds the people that we have a duty and an obligation to start a revolution if our government becomes tyrannical, it also reminds us that our motives for said revolt must be duly justified. Citizens are required to overthrow tyranny, but we shouldn’t dismantle governments for lighthearted reasons. That wouldn’t be sensible. Sedition can only be vindicated by severe (and often not until they are prolonged) violations of ones liberty.
On the flipside, that sentence also reminds us not to tolerate too much crap. Our founding fathers remind us that human beings are likely to sit on their butts and tolerate scumbags longer than we should. Far easier to just sit back and endure the nonsense than to rise up and battle a war. The problem there is that the tyrants know this too. Oil companies did that to us. Remember? Back in 2007 or so they raised gas prices and raised them and raised them, until the people couldn’t take it anymore, and stopped buying gas. Then the prices miraculously dropped back down just low enough for people to find it sufferable without storming the gates. Why do we tolerate such greed? Because as our forefathers predicted, mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
The Declaration reminds us…
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
Once again, the Declaration of Independence reiterates their cause and their determination to do this right. Again, it declares we’ll tear down the whole place and start over if the government screws up. How many documents founding a nation encourage the citizens to start a revolution and destroy the government? Only ours. America was founded by rebels and outlaws who just couldn’t take anymore freedoms being stripped away. Our founders reminded the world that we will become outlaws again if need be. The Declaration concludes with three eloquent paragraphs.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
That paragraph is so fantastic because it calls out King George III on so many levels. We admit that we tried to reason with him. We voice our anger at how he ignored us. Then we clearly declare that he is unfit to be a king if that’s going to be his attitude.
The next paragraph is wonderful too because it reiterates our desire to remain amicable to our fellow Englishmen. We basically say, “If you are an English citizen and you support us, we are your allies. If you support the King, you are also our enemy.” But listen to how beautifully those sentiments are written.
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.
Finally, we get to the paragraph that lays it all on the line, the declaration of our independence. Note there is also a strong reference to God in this next sentence, when the founders cite their desire to appeal to the Supreme Judge of the world.
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do.
The Declaration of Independence is the most eloquent and articulate “fuck you” ever written, ending with a beautifully composed sentence of unity and brotherhood which states:
And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.
Once again, our forefathers declare their conviction in God. Their reverence for Divine Providence is irrefutable proof of their faith in forces beyond themselves at work. The beauty of the phrase Divine Providence instead of “God” shows an ignostic respect for the spiritual beliefs of everyone involved. For any religion, including atheism, can acknowledge that the mysteries of serendipity may be rooted in forces we do not yet understand, and that we can pay homage to under the phrase Divine Providence.
More than that, it vows to protect and defend each other. They acknowledge that we are all in this together. A noble sentiment written by men who understood that honor was sacred, promises are to be kept, and word is bond.
So there you have it, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls. The most defiant and punkrock manifesto every put to parchment – our magnanimous Declaration of Independence. The supreme law of the land. The founding words. The basis of all our ideals. The brave and reckless document that started the American Revolution, and won our freedom.
“I disagree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”
I still remember the first time I heard that phrase. I was only about 14 years old and I heard it said on some television program. I don’t recall the exact nature of the show. Perhaps some history documentary on National Geographic or something similar. Although I may not recall the exact context, I shall never forget the effect those words had upon me. Oddly enough, if memory serves, my Freshman history teacher repeated that phrase in class a few days later, as though the universe itself were attempting to reiterate the importance of such words.
The phrase hit me so hard because it was such a powerful idea. And at that age, it was an idea I had never considered before. I was still a kid. I was just a child. And as children, our world view harbors a very selfish and narcissistic protectiveness towards our own viewpoint. Right? Children don’t tend to deviate from the herd. We like having friends with similar interests. We don’t want conflict. We don’t want people with different opinions. Children prefer to befriend and surround themselves with clones of their own personality. Nothing wrong with that. In a big and scary world of uncertainty, it’s a natural part of the human condition to wish to feel camaraderie within our tribe. Children take great comfort in being cocooned in a sort of homogeneous conformity. As children we attack those who are different. We make fun of them. Ridicule those who do not fit our ideologies.
So, I was astounded when I heard that phrase, “I disagree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”
Here was the idea that freedom of expression is of such tantamount importance, we should be willing to forfeit our very lives to preserve it. But more than that, individual freedom is so sacrosanct, we should be willing to lay down our lives in defense of others freedom, even if their views are diametrically opposed to our own ethics.
As a kid in junior high, this concept of “I disagree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it” completely blew my mind. It was one of the most noble and righteous principals I had ever been taught. There is a sense of dignity and self-respect encapsulated in that philosophy which I immediately embraced and have held unto steadfast since the moment I first heard those words.
“I disagree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”
Which brings us to the brilliant Nicole Arbour and our freedom of speech.
For those of you who do not know who she is, Nicole Arbour is a Canadian actress, model, and cheerleader with a channel on YouTube hosting around 300,000 subscribers that launched a viral video in September 2015 called “Dear Fat People”. Let me start by saying I have never met or spoken to Nicole Arbour. I have no personal connection to Nicole whatsoever. Nevertheless, I absolutely love and respect her talent. She is among the most hilarious, articulate and insightful commentators I have ever seen. I genuinely admire and envy her command of language, because she can phrase her thoughts so succinctly and so beautifully, she expresses her ideas with more wit and charm in 5 minutes than I can do in 20 minutes. Seriously. I’m long-winded as hell. I don’t know when to stop. I just keep going. Nicole is such a talented writer she can say things with far greater eloquence and brevity than I ever manage to do. Anytime she’s unscripted, she is also endearingly awkward. As well-spoken as she may be in her writing, she’s rather hyper in interviews and that makes her all the more charming. Nicole is incredible, intelligent and quick-witted. I adore this girl.
In her “Dear Fat People” video, Nicole made a lot of brilliant and hysterical remarks about how one shouldn’t take pride in the gradual suicide that is obesity. Since our culture is rapidly devolving into a society of morons who think every single behavior should be celebrated, including those which are highly immoral or self-destructive, the video received a tremendous amount of backlash. In fact, the backlash was so severe, her entire channel was briefly banned from YouTube as “hate speech” even though the whole point of the video was a very supportive message to overweight people saying, “Hey, stop killing yourself!” That’s a good message. That’s a positive message. But our culture has become so scared to criticize or demean anyone (except heterosexual Caucasian Christian males), that people are actually stupid enough to think Bruce Jenner is a chick just because he started wearing a dress. If I have sex with a bearskin rug, that doesn’t make me a grizzly… That was a bad analogy. Should have had Nicole write a better one. Let’s move on…
Now that you have a little background on Nicole Arbour, you would think the story would end there. Right? YouTube personality with a respectable subscriber base. Made a video. People got offended. YouTube took it down. YouTube took a lot of heat for unjustified censorship and brought her channel back. That should be the end of the story.
But something far more fascinating happened. A little microcosm of YouTube began to fester like a sociological experiment in a petri dish. What happened in the months that followed was intriguing in ways I never would have predicted.
People just keep hating this girl. The amount of vitriol and venom against her is rather bizarre. There are countless fake news channels on YouTube, you know those channels with the hipster assholes posing as reporters where someone with a 6th grade reading level writes inane commentaries on people who don’t fit their political agenda. I won’t name them because I don’t want to give any of these charlatans ( or The Young Turks or ETC News or InformOverload) more publicity. Nevertheless, numerous such outlets have created videos attacking Nicole. Worst of all, they are vicious and brutal against her in very personal ways. This wouldn’t bother me so much if they admitted to being personal commentaries. The reason I find these criticisms so abhorrent and unscrupulous is because they purport to be “news” channels, yet nothing could show a lack of journalistic integrity more than making personal attacks and pretending you have all the gravity of Walter Cronkite, when you’re more like Ron Burgundy. Those who hate Nicole Arbour have field days attempting to discredit her. When some ex-boyfriend of hers made a video where he breaks down in blubbering tears while insinuating that she abused him, the virtual pitchforks went ballistic. Some of these weirdos have gone so far as to compare old videos and timelines, taking her to task and trying to prove that Nicole is lying about inconsequential remarks she made in videos 4 years ago. Really bizarre high school drama bullshit. Trying to dig up any dirt they can find on Nicole, just to make her look bad.
You get the idea. The point is, Nicole didn’t fade away into obscurity like I expected, because people keep on getting all riled up by her for no good reason. She’s like that little girl in gradeschool that everyone ignored, then she played piano in the school talent show, and now the bullies pick on her for the rest of the school year. Relentlessly.
For the life of me, I can’t figure out why.
Obviously, part of the reason Nicole gets verbally assaulted is because she’s popular. Her channel has hundreds of thousands of subscribers and her viral videos have over 10 million views. Once you begin to stand out above the crowd, it’s far more likely the unwashed masses will start pelting you with rocks. That’s what uneducated lemmings like to do. But there has to be more to it than mere popularity.
Why unleash so much animosity towards a random blond chick on YouTube? Why does anyone care about her? Why are people so obsessed with crucifying her?
This raises an even bigger question: Why did I care so much? None of my business. I don’t even know her! What difference does it make to me? Why do I care what happens to her?
These two questions kept on kicking around in my head. Why do people hate Nicole? Why does it bother me that people are attacking her?
Suddenly it hit me. The answer to each question was obvious.
In the series of social commentary videos she is creating, Nicole is saying things that the silent majority of people are thinking and feeling. And those views go against the opinions of the liberals and the politically correct and the social justice warriors. Every single one of these YouTube channels who attack Nicole Arbour are channels that espouse extreme left-wing liberal agendas. Liberals have proven time and again, their primary objective is to crucify and silence anyone who fails to conform to their dogma. Liberals will even go so far as to use courts and lawyers to drive people out of business if you dare disagree with their principals. Since Nicole Arbour is extraordinarily politically incorrect and her viral video garnered a huge amount of attention, she was crowned the poster child of libertard hatred, the ideal effigy for angry femnazis and millennials to batter and burn like a sexy Barbie pinata. That is why these people are so relentless and obsessed with continually vilifying some random Canadian chick on the Internet. Nicole speaks out against them. Nicole calls them on their bullshit. Nothing disproves the emotionally charged lies and propaganda of fascist liberals faster than articulate logic and reason. Nicole threatens the ignorance to which they so zealously cling.
That answers the question of why they are incessantly harassing Nicole.
But why does this bother me so much? Why do I care that this girl is being ostracized? I’ve never met her. I’ve never spoken to her. She’s not even an American citizen. Why does it make me so angry to see people condemn her? Because the methodology used by these commie bastards to shame and ostracize people into conformity with their ideologies goes against every freedom the United States stands for.
It’s not about defending Nicole like some teen White Knight moron yearning to score some Canadian sexting. It’s about protecting what Nicole represents.
“I disagree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”
Truly a noble sentiment. Men and women who agree with those words comprise the foundation of American values to defy tyranny and defend liberty.
Liberals and social justice warriors do not possess any honor or nobility for they have mutilated that phrase into their childish mentality. Their mantra is:
“I disagree with what you say, so I will fight you to the death and suppress your right to say it.”
Won’t it be a great day when people finally remember that you can disagree with opinions without ostracizing those who have them?
Many citizens today fail to understand that The Bill of Rights have never been political rights granted to We the People by the government. The Bill of Rights enumerates intrinsic human rights which are applicable at all times and in all situations, political or otherwise. The Bill of Rights serve as commands reiterated to the government, enumerating and clarifying additional inalienable rights endowed by our Creator, as stated in the Declaration of Independence.
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
Our freedom of speech and the press aren’t merely rights that can not be legally abridged by the government, they are rights that can not be ethically infringed by anyone. No individuals. No corporations. No communities.
Nevertheless, we see the evil tyranny of liberals trying to undermine these basic human rights all the time. They are nothing but patrioteers, twisting the meaning of our most sacred founding documents to fit their personal agendas.
Those who embrace this Marxist mentality, those who support such fascist political agendas, need to be convicted as traitors to our country for their sedition against our Bill of Rights, because these socialist ideologies of censorship mirror the dogma of all tyrants and dictators. Everything they represent, everything they stand for, is in direct violation of human freedom and undermines our Constitution and all it stands for. These turncoats support the very same usurpations which forged the Revolutionary War and impelled We the People to take arms against those who would dare to oppose our liberty.
Patriots, willing to fight and die to preserve the ideals of America, can no longer be idle or silent in the face of these domestic enemies of our Constitution. We swore an oath to protect and defend the principals of that document. Remaining silent in the face of injustice neither protects nor defends our ideals and instead permits the toxic lies of censorship to prevail. I implore my fellow patriots, the silent majority, to break your silence. Speak out. Fight. Words are weapons and this is war.
You remember that other saying. The one we were taught as children, but kids today are never being told:
“Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me.”
Liberals don’t have any sticks or stones. They only have names. Racist. Bigot. Sexist. Intolerant. When slinging those juvenile names proved to be inconsequential, liberals started inventing brand new meaningless words and phrases. Rape culture. Homophobic. White privilege. Gun nut. Microaggressor. These names are a joke. These names are all nonsense, but liberals think they are very important. That is because name-calling is the only weapon liberals and gradeschool bullies know how to use. Childish names are their preferred way to attack those who oppose them… But names will never hurt me.
I’m not the only one who thinks these people are a joke. The inevitable backlash of riddiculing their mentality grows stronger everyday and is illustrated wonderfully in this song called Trigger Warning by Sunshine Skater kids…
Showing the irrational insanity of these people as demonic deathmetal is quite accurate. They sound like monsters and demons.
We can no longer allow these liberal villains to engage in their sociological terrorism of frightening patriots into silent conformity. We’re Americans, damnit. We never conform to tyrants. We drive them back across the sea. Since the birth of our great nation, that’s what Americans have always done. Some of us may die fighting those battles. But we’ve never lost those wars, and I’ll be damned if we start losing now.
This war we are fighting is not simply an American conflict. This is a World War and all free peoples of Western culture from Europe to Australia to Canada are being attacked by these fascist ideologies. The armies of Mordor are on the move and the orcs are flying rainbow banners.
Fighting the good fight brings us full-circle and takes us back to the dear Nicole Arbour.
Nicole Arbour may not be an American citizen, but Nicole is an American patriot, for her candor and fearlessness for speaking her mind embodies the highest ideals America represents. Never let anyone tell you what words you are not “allowed” to say. No human being will ever have such authority over you. Speak your mind. And if the opinions of Nicole Arbour hurt your feelings or offend you or make you feel bad or trigger your sissy ass to cower in your safe place, go cry to your therapist like the pansy you are and leave the rest of us out of your egocentric drama. You may not always agree with Nicole. I don’t always agree with Nicole. In fact, as a passionate supporter of the Second Amendment, I hated this video. Nicole regurgitated the typical false statistics and irrational analogies of anti-gun zombies… but I will defend to the death her right to speak her mind.
