Remember Wounded Knee and Little Big Horn

December 18, 2015

Just a short history lesson…

December 29, 2015 marks the 125th Anniversary of the murder of 297 Sioux Indians at Wounded Knee Creek on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. These 297 people, in their winter camp, were murdered by federal agents and members of the 7th Cavalry who had come to confiscate their firearms for their own safety and protection.

The slaughter began after the majority of the Sioux had peacefully turned in their firearms. The Calvary began shooting, and managed to wipe out the entire camp. Over 200 of the 297 victims were women and children. About 40 members of the 7th Cavalry were killed, but over half of them were victims of fratricide (“friendly fire”) from the Hotchkiss guns of their overzealous comrades-in-arms.

Twenty members of the 7th Cavalry’s death squad, were deemed National Heroes and were awarded the Medal of Honor for their acts of [cowardice] heroism.

We hear very little of Wounded Knee today. It is usually not mentioned in our history classes or books. What little that does exist about Wounded Knee is normally a sanitized Official Government Explanation. And there are several historically inaccurate depictions of the events leading up to the massacre, which appear in movie scripts and are not the least bit representative of the actual events that took place that day.

Wounded Knee was among the first federally backed gun confiscation attempts in United States history. It ended in the senseless murder of 297 people.

Before you jump on the emotionally charged bandwagon for gun-control, take a moment to reflect on the real purpose of the Second Amendment: the right of the people to take up arms in defense of themselves, their families, and property in the face of invading armies or an oppressive government.

The argument that the Second Amendment only applies to hunting and target shooting is asinine. When the United States Constitution was drafted, hunting was an everyday chore carried out by men and women to put meat on the table each night, and target shooting was an unheard of concept. Musket balls were a precious commodity and were certainly not wasted on target shooting. The Second Amendment was written by people who fled oppressive and tyrannical regimes in Europe, and it refers to the right of American citizens to be armed for defensive purposes, should such tyranny arise in the United States.

As time goes forward, the average citizen in the United States continually lose little chunks of personal freedom or liberty. Far too often, unjust gun control bills were passed and signed into law under the guise of for your safety or for protection. The Patriot Act signed into law by G.W. Bush, was expanded and continues under Barack Obama. It is just one of many examples of American citizens being stripped of their rights and privacy for their personal safety.

Since the recent occurences of mass shootings in Paris, France and San Bernandino, California, the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is on the table again, and will, most likely be attacked to facilitate the path for the removal of our firearms, all in the name of our safety.

No matter how often and how vociferous we may support the 2nd Amendment, you can rest assured that the Left will equally continue their often and vociferous attacks our your God given right to protect yourself, your family and your property.

Before any American citizen blindly accepts whatever new firearms legislation that is about to be doled out, they should stop and think about something for just one minute…

Evil exists in our world.

It always has and it always will.

Throughout history evil people have committed evil acts. In the Bible one of the first stories is that of Cain killing his brother Abel. We can not legislate evil into extinction. Good people will abide by the law, and the criminal element will always find a way around it. No amount of “gun control” laws will thwart the desire of evil people wanting to commit evil deeds. If they don’t do it with a gun, they will find other weapons with which to commit their crimes.

Evil exists all around us, but looking back at the historical record of the past 200 years, across the globe, where is evil and malevolence most often found?

In the hands of those with the most power: governments. Your elected officials. The people YOU and I voted for…

…think about that a few minutes and let it sink in.

That greatest human tragedies on record and the largest loss of innocent human life can be attributed to governments.

Who do the governments always target?

Scapegoats and enemies within their own borders… but only after they have been disarmed to the point where they are no longer a threat and able to defend themselves.

Ask any Native American, and they will tell you it was inferior technology and lack of arms that contributed to their demise. Ask any Armenian why it was so easy for the Turks to exterminate millions of them, and they will answer We were disarmed before it happened.

Ask any Jew what Hitlers first step was, prior to the mass murders of Jews in the Holocaust: confiscation of firearms from the people.

Ask countless other millions who were slaughtered by the Bolsheviks, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, and the plethora of tyrants who wantonly killed their victims, and their voices will hauntingly echo back from the abyss: they disarmed us.

Wounded Knee is the prime example of why the Second Amendment exists, and why we should vehemently resist any attempts to infringe on our Rights to Bear Arms. Without the Second Amendment we will be totally stripped of any ability to defend ourselves and our families.

If it comes down to the 2nd Amendment being taken away from us, rest assured: We The People of These United States will NOT comply. We WILL revolt.

History has a way of repeating itself…

We had a little party in Boston that culminated in the Revolution.

We are making a statement again, in the same vein as our Declaration:

“That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, 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. 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. 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.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.”

The infringement of the 2nd Amendment is not a “light and transient” cause. It will be the cause of the next revolution.

Injustice and violence will continue to rear its ugly head in any society, and each time it does, it needs to be decapitated in short order. Wisdom tells us not to deny or ignore history. Praying about it won’t make it go away. Sticking our heads in the sand will not make it disappear. Only when we rise up and carry the burden of the “heavy lifting” of fighting will we beat back our oppressors.

For those who are want to lick the boots of their oppressors, they must be reminded that their necks will also be held down… by the other boot.

History will repeat itself if we do nothing. If voting the miscreants out of office isn’t the solution, then the only other course of action we have is to follow the recent example of the Egyptians: oust the bastards!

The entitlement “low information” voters will also vote against you…

…you can’t fix stupid. You can only fight against them.

They outnumber you. You can’t out-vote them. When they come for your 2nd Amendment, you can only stand and fight.

No amount of praying will shield you. God told Joshua that he gave them the city of Jericho: it was “in their hands.” All they had to do is do the heavy lifting of fighting the war.

The gun control minions will read this and will post their radical comments only to be moderated into oblivion, because I do not run a democracy on my blog. I do not run for election. I am dictatorial. Get used to it.
