    I haven’t figured out yet if you’re a satirist or whether you actually believe what you post on this site, but on the chance it’s the latter:

    you DO realize, don’t you, that the Sunni/ISIS Movement and the “Communist International” (which I guess you’re including the Ferguson October Movement as part of) are CLASHING philosophies? And that if somehow between the two you actually DID bring down the United States, the two philosophies will then be in a death struggle against each other?

    And in such a struggle, my betting money is on the ISLAMISTS, not on the COMMUNISTS. Because Islamists are actually willing to DIE for what they believe in: you communists AREN’T. Sure, you communists will happily sacrifice countless millions of OTHERS for your Marxist/Leninist ideology – but you WON’T sacrifice YOURSELVES (at least not WILLINGLY).

    Regarding your point about how the media portrays Christians unfavorably because that media has a very ulterior motive in doing so:

    remember, Nero blamed the great fire of Rome that ravaged the city around 65 AD on the Christians because he needed a scapegoat for the fire, even though no evidence then or now has ever been produced that Christians had anything to do with the fire (and contrary to what has become so-called conventional wisdom by now, it is unlikely that NERO started the fire, for the Hebrew historian Josephus, a contemporary of Nero, recorded that Nero was actually at his villa 50 miles away when the fire started and that when he first got the news about it, rather than EXULT over the fire, Nero immediately raced to Rome and made frantic efforts to try to STOP the fire).

    Look at all the things the Jews over the centuries have been made scapegoats for.

    So making scapegoats of, and demonizing, the blameless is as old as human history itself. LITERALLY, in fact, because look at how Cain reacted to the fact that God accepted his brother Abel’s offerings while rejecting Cain’s: he SLEW Abel even though Abel bore no blame for why God rejected Cain’s offering.

    And in fact, Jesus openly warned His disciples – and by extension, ALL who would follow after Him ever after – in John 15:20 that if the world persecuted HIM, they would persecute THEM as well.

    Indeed, in the prior verse, He warned them that since they no longer belonged to the world but had been chosen by Him out of the world, this is why the world hated them.

    I have discovered in my own personal life that when you reject things because they are antithetical to your walk with God that people who have no wish to walk with God heartily embrace, those that embrace them often do NOT take kindly to your rejection of what they love. Because they see it as making a pejorative statement not about those things they love but about them PERSONALLY.

    As a for-instance, there are almost NO movies I go out to see in the theaters anymore, and this has been the case for over 20 years, and for at least the last 25 years, I have shunned prime-time TV on the Big 3 broadcasting outlets, and both for the same reason: because I simply refuse to give my attention OR money to a product I find offensive and that in fact often seems to be intended TO be offensive to people of faith.

    Yet I have NEVER tried to tell anyone ELSE that THEY shouldn’t be watching prime-time broadcasting of the Big 3 or the movies that Hollywood makes: all I tell them is that I WON’T. Yet merely by eschewing fare that many others embrace, I’ve raised the hackles of more than a few people.

    As what would by any standard be considered a “fundamentalist Christian”, I certainly wouldn’t try to say that Lance Ford is wrong that today’s evangelical church is totally blameless in its negative perception problem. Just as in a marital breakup, it is very rare that one of the two spouses is Simon-pure of blame for the dissolution.

    And in fact, in a column he wrote about two weeks after Bill Clinton’s initial election to the White House in 1992, so this was over 20 years ago, former Moral Majority vice-president and current syndicated column Cal Thomas himself stated that one of the things that evangelicals needed to do to position themselves in an America in which it was becoming increasingly apparent that government action alone or even primarily was NOT going to return America to its religious roots was to become known for what they were FOR rather than what they were AGAINST.

    That having been said, America is hardly the first society to turn en masse away from God. Israel, of course, has had more than one such episode in its history – to its great woe.

    And even living a totally blameless life will STILL incur the violent enmity of at least SOME toward you. Jesus Christ, of course, is the ultimate example of this. Because righteousness, even with humility, is STILL a real threat to some, just as Jesus’ righteousness was a real threat to the Pharisees – and thus they were determined to eliminate that threat by eliminating Jesus Himself.

    I fully agree with you that Obama IS gutless.

    And I contend that this was proven at the Bundy ranch in Nevada earlier this year, when the feds BACKED DOWN when confronted with scores of armed citizens who flocked to Nevada to stand in solidarity with Cliven Bundy and in open defiance of the feds.

    You see a LOT of people all over the Internet, including THIS site, who claim that Obama is just SALIVATING for an opportunity to unleash the organs of the federal government in brutal repression against the American people.

    Well, I contend that he HAD just such an opportunity at the Bundy ranch. So WHY didn’t Obama seize it?

    So I fully agree with you, if massive riots break out all over the nation over Ferguson or something ELSE that irks black Americans, Obama is NOT going to interfere with states and localities and even private citizens taking whatever action they deem necessary to quell and protect themselves from those riots – even if they’re running up a steady body count of black troublemakers in the process.

    Even if I assume purely for the sake of argument that FEMA is maintaining/preparing internment camps for millions of American citizens, just WHO is Obama going to be able to get who will do the ROUNDING UP of all those citizens?

    Do you REALLY believe, given how despised Obama is by now within the ranks of our military (and forget about how much he may have packed the upper echelons of our military with bootlickers, it won’t be GENERALS who will be doing the round-ups, it will be those at the “boots on the ground” level), and how much he surely now must be despised within much of our law-enforcement community given the very anti-police overtone of his Justice Department’s intervention in the Ferguson situation, that Obama is going to be able to get those in our military/National Guard/civilian law-enforcement to DO the roundups of the citizenry to fill those FEMA camps?

    And if he tries to turn to those in the CIVILIAN federal workforce, like FEMA, DHS, IRS et al, for such work, all I can say is, any of those in any of THESE bodies who actually try to carry out such orders, before setting out, better kiss their spouses and children good-bye as though they’re doing it for the very last time – because for many of them, it WILL be. Because there are MILLIONS of citizens who will fight to the death first before they let THEMSELVES be sent to such camps. Because unlike the poor Jews during the Holocaust, they’ll KNOW they’re being sent to their deaths.

    @ barber2

    You replied at 3:03am to sasquatch08′s 2:31am post with: “08: Exactly. The Radical Left is just nudging susceptible blacks toward a repeat of the Watts riots.Charles Manson had this one correct.”

    The grand jury just might surprise you. After all, a LOT of us thought the Florida jury was going to throw George Zimmerman to the wolves in fear of riots – and DIDN’T.

    There’s one thing that Charlie Manson WON’T get correct, however.

    Remember, Manson believed that blacks would WIN the upcoming race war.

    But if black Americans are foolish enough to go on the warpath on a nationwide scale, over Ferguson or some OTHER incident, they will NOT win that race war, and having Barack Obama in the White House won’t change that fact.

    In fact, my bet is that if they ARE foolish enough to attempt such madness while Obama is still president and expect that Obama will mobilize all the resources of the federal government to aid them in crushing and bleeding white America, I think they’re going to discover to their horror that no such federal cavalry will be riding over the hill to save them.

    Obama is only all too happy to let them get slaughtered in droves. They’ve ALREADY outlived their primary usefulness to Obama, which was their VOTES, since Obama already GOT those, TWICE, and is never running for anything anymore. NOW, as far as Obama is concerned, they have only one remaining useful purpose: to become cannon fodder in his vendetta against whitey.

    @ Sargeking

    Thank you for your response to my 5:39pm post inquiring about whether you would have obeyed certain types of orders while you were still in the Guard.

    The things you brought to my attention about the Guard that you stated that a lot of people don’t know, well, I didn’t know any of that EITHER, so thanks for the background information.

    By the way, just so there’s no misunderstanding, in asking you the questions I did, I firmly believed that I would get no OTHER answer than the one you gave me, in fact, I was fearful that you might be offended that I would even ASK you such questions as though I believed you just MIGHT answer YES.

    And since by now I think you’ve seen plenty from me on this site to know what my beliefs are as to what level of cooperation Obama would get on such orders from the Guard, just let me reaffirm, I have OFT-stated on this site that if Obama DID try to use the Guard to help impose and enforce a national state of martial law, I firmly believe that he would get VERY little cooperation from those in the Guard for such an endeavor, just as I believe the same thing about those in our active-duty military and those in civilian law-enforcement.

    By the way, I’ve seen people on the Internet who have stated that National Guardsmen from Utah who sent to help restore and keep order in New Orleans in the the wake of Katrina told their superiors before they embarked that they would NOT obey orders to disarm the locals.

    MKFlyBoy, you replied at 5:48pm to RJJinGadsden’s 5:35pm response to Sargeking’s 5:31pm post with: “Yes, she CLAIMED she had a permit, but did she REALLY? It doesn’t say, but I find it hard to believe anyone with a legal permit would push so many anti-gun positions, even if they ARE a democrat.”

    I very strongly suspect that MANY liberals who own firearms because frankly they’re very much afraid of that element of their OWN party’s voter base that they have grown and enabled and coddled and abetted by their votes LIE to their FELLOW LIBERALS about whether they own a gun.

    What would be REALLY fun is for some reporter to ask Ms. Nasheed just WHO she was carrying that gun to protect herself AGAINST.

    Since presumably she wouldn’t DARE say it was to protect herself against the COPS, since she’d be admitting by so doing that she would have been willing to open fire on a policeman (now wouldn’t THAT just REALLY make the day of the Ferguson police force), HOW would she answer the question? Is she going to say she was carrying to protect herself against one of Ferguson’s minority of WHITE PEOPLE?

    And then she should be asked that if SHE feels the need to carry a gun when in the midst of a preponderance of BLACK PEOPLE, well, then, why shouldn’t WHITE PEOPLE be able to exercise the SAME privilege?

    If she was in possession of the gun in a way that violates Missouri law, don’t expect her to be charged with anything. It seems just being a Democrat is a “get out of jail free” card.

    On another thread today, I noticed that you stated that you used to be in the National Guard.

    Therefore, I’d like to ask you something (and if you feel I’m getting too personal in asking this or have some other reason for not wanting to answer my inquiry, I’ll understand):

    during your time in the Guard, had the president of the United States issued a declaration of a national state of martial law, and let’s assume it was for a reason OTHER than a natural disaster (such as massive nationwide rioting), if YOUR unit had been called up to actually help impose it (and in the process, you were ordered to participate in disarming the local citizenry of wherever you were sent or maybe even in rounding up citizens to be sent to detention facilities WITHOUT CHARGE) but NOT by the governor of the state to which you were sent to impose it, would YOU have obeyed such orders?

    @ tejanodude

    You replied at 1:58pm to Oregon-Trailblazer’s 1:46pm post with: “The progressives, aka communist party, are using the LGBT organizations to tear apart religion, family and this country. Commies do not believe in God. They want a Godless society, like in China and Russia. As soon as this country becomes 100% socialist, they will go after the LGBT’s as well.”

    FULLY AGREED!

    And it won’t be just the LGBT’s, either: if the progressives ever get their communist utopia in this country through using the LGBT’s and other constituencies of the leftist coalition (blacks, unions, OWS types) to bring down traditional society in this country, once ensconced in power, they will turn their lash on THOSE groups as well. And those in these groups will find out the hard way WHY Lenin referred to those like them as “useful idiots” – AND what happens to “useful idiots” once they have completely outlived the useful phase of their idiocy to those they were useful idiots FOR.

    I’ll GUARANTEE you that under communist rule, black Americans WON’T be living lives of leisure on the public dime with Obamaphones and EBT cards anymore, since to communists, one’s worth is strictly whatever value one returns to the state – and useless eaters return NO value to the state. The communists will MAKE them work, and blacks that demur or protest or simply refuse to work will quickly not be long for this world. They’ll quickly learn to say, “YAS SUH, MASSA COMRADE!”

    @ Tired_of_Pastels

    You ended your 1:43pm reply to foobared’s 1:30pm post with: “Sin should not be celebrated.”

    The Democrat Party will fight THAT mentality tooth and nail.

    Because if the notion that sin should not be celebrated becomes firmly ensconced in our society again, the entire raison d’etre for the Democrat Party is GONE!

    You replied at 1:03pm to Marcus_Tullius_Cicero’s 12:46pm post with: “nah.. i think its more to do with efforts to slow kids murdering each other in cities. not to take grandads shotgun.”

    You want to slow kids murdering each other in the ciites?

    GET THE FATHERS BACK IN THE HOME!

    But since liberals by now have rejected the traditional nuclear family concept, THAT’S probably not going to happen

    If the grand jury currently deliberating about whether Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson should be indicted for a crime decides that he should NOT and blacks go on a national rampage as a result (with the incitement and encouragement of many Democrat politicians, no doubt), the Democrat Party and its base are going to turn a LOT of Americans who at present are either not terribly supportive of or at best indifferent to the 2nd Amendment into staunch 2nd Amendment advocates!

    Obama has ALREADY gone a long way to accomplishing this all by his little lonesome: before he became president, I was never a gun owner before in my life and probably was at best indifferent to the 2nd Amendment – but I’m a gun owner NOW. And I KNOW that I’m representative of countless MILLIONS of other Americans since the start of Obama’s presidency.
