Guest Post: Gun Grabbers Call For Re-Education Programs In Public Schools

Submitted by Brandon Smith of Alt-Market blog,

Was the shooting of 20 students in Newtown, Connecticut the Neo-Liberal version of 9/11?  The question merits considerable thought, but let me explain further what I mean.  In the aftermath of the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks, a sense of shock and awe sunk into the minds of the American populace like nothing seen in decades.   This overwhelming fear, this logic crippling terror, infected the public to more destructive ends than any deadly virus in existence.  Conservatives were especially vulnerable to the infectious symptoms of the event, abandoning all reason and even their small government values to support the fascist inklings of the Bush Administration; a Neo-Con (fake conservative) driven presidency with ambitions of constitutional reversal.  Whatever you may believe about the true causes and culprits behind 9/11, no one can deny that Bush and his ilk sought to exploit the tragedy to gain political capital to be used in the destruction of American civil liberties. 

More than a decade later, the Neo-Liberal (fake liberal) Obama Administration and its minions continue the Bush legacy by exploiting our latest tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary as a means to an end; a political opportunity to assert federal authority as more valuable than constitutional freedom.

The onset of the illegal wars thrust upon the Middle East after 9/11 brought with it mass resistance from the “left” side of the political spectrum.  Protests abounded, dissenters were numerous, and Bush responded in kind with unprecedented domestic surveillance programs and attacks against free speech.  Democratic leaning citizens saw the criminality of it because they were unhindered by bias.  The archetypal manipulation of 9/11 and the fear mongering of the terrorist myth was less effective on them.  However, times have changed...

With a Democratic president in the White House, the left has grown addicted to their perceived (but illusory) social leverage.  The intoxicating symptoms of power overdose have clouded their vision, and that which they fought against in the Bush years now appears rather fair and acceptable to them today.  Obama has so far committed every war atrocity that Bush was ever guilty of in his tenure, while expanding on liberty nullifying pieces of legislation Bush set into motion.  Liberals cry out in horror at the deaths of 20 children in Connecticut while cheering a man like Obama, who orders predator drone strikes that result in the deaths of children everyday.  Of all the people in this country, self proclaimed “progressives” are the most hypocritical and the most disappointing as human beings.

Adding to that disappointment, Obama’s more aggressive socialist support base (useful idiots) along with the establishment controlled mainstream media are attempting to squeeze every last ounce of political advantage from the Newtown massacre to gain superiority in a battle over one of the last portions of the Constitution that people still seem willing to fight and die for:  The 2nd Amendment.

In the past few days I have seen an unprecedented tidal wave of media stories promoting anti-gun sentiments and prejudice against gun ownership.  Counterpoints to this philosophy are almost never given credence in print or on television, and when they are, gun rights advocates are interrupted with incessant Alinsky arguments attacking their characters or distracting away from the real issues.  What the MSM is attempting to do (blatantly and shamelessly I might add) is to create the illusion of consensus.  Through a deluge of constant propaganda, they hope to implant the false perception that a “majority” of Americans are in support of strict gun control or even confiscation.

What I have found though in my seven years as an analyst in the independent media is quite the opposite.  America’s appreciation of gun rights and gun ownership is increasing exponentially.  Not because of some newfound love affair for “hunting”; that’s just nonsense.  Instead, the public is embracing our gun culture because they are slowly realizing the need for self defense in these precarious times, and this need extends to defense against a highly corrupt government (hence the public’s right to military style weapons).  Gun ownership has even increased amongst Democrats after the election of Barack Obama, and gun sales have skyrocketed beyond all expectation.  Interestingly, some gun grabbers are willing to admit that 2nd Amendment principles are pervasive in the U.S., and have suggested that the Obama Administration target not only gun ownership, but our “gun culture” as well.

Numerous mainstream articles have been published attacking the gun culture as the root cause of all our nation’s ills, but I felt one Reuters piece in particular stood out as indicative of the truly despotic depths to which leftists (who claim to be champions of freedom) are willing to sink:

The piece begins by comparing the battle for gun control to the battle for civil rights of black Americans during the reign of Lyndon Johnson.  As painful and absurd as this sounds, the author appears to take the premise very seriously. 

The article attempts to promote the idea that desegregation was achieved due to the actions of the Johnson Administration, who supposedly used the threat of cancelled supplemental funds to state schools as a means to force them into enrolling black students. 

The goal here is to promote a worshipful attitude towards the Federal Government as the sole arbiter and savior of the people.  It’s funny, but I thought it was the dissenting protests of millions of civil rights activists that ended desegregation, NOT Lyndon Johnson, who by all accounts was a racist who only wanted to use the black community as a voting bloc to revitalize the Democratic Party. 

In this White House recording, Johnson complains that using the argument of discrimination to impose federal controls on taxation in Texas was not working because there were too many “n*ggers” voting there to make it seem plausible:

Johnson is also famous for this quote:

"I'll have those n*ggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years."
From Ronald Kessler’s “Inside The White House”

Clearly, Johnson saw the tragedy of the oppression of the black community as a tool he could exploit to further his goal of decapitating states rights.  Progressives and centralists often use the argument that if the states are left to their own devices they will implement freedom crushing legislation like segregation.  I would point out that anti-constitutional and anti-freedom actions by ANY government, whether state or federal, need to be stopped by the citizenry.  The federal government is supposed to keep the states in line constitutionally, but states are also supposed to keep the federal government in line constitutionally.  In the meantime, the people are supposed to keep BOTH of them in line constitutionally.  The Federal Government was never designed to be an unaccountable and unstoppable dictator in the affairs of the states or the populace.  They do not get the last word; the Constitution and the people do. 

In light of this information on Johnson, I find it interesting that the author of the Reuters article above uses Johnson’s methodology as an argument for Obama’s gun control.  Whether he realizes it or not, he has made a very astute comparison.  Obama does not care about Sandy Hook, the children who were killed, or similar tragedies in general.  Like Johnson, though, Obama does care about how he can use the event to further federal power and chew away at our constitutional rights.   

The LBJ / Obama connection aside, the article gets much worse…

The author goes on to propose that Obama use Johnson’s strategy of flaunting federal money as a carrot to get states to submit to centralized gun control.  This plays into the overall meme that the mainstream media is pushing post-Newtown; the idea that Obama must bypass Congress and take action against gun rights unilaterally.  You know…like an emperor…

And still, it gets even darker…

What is the author’s ultimate methodology?  What edict does he hope the Obama Administration will implement?  Use the threat of lost federal funding to force schools across the country to institute government approved “gun safety and violence prevention” programs. 

But what does he mean by “violence prevention”?  The author dances around the specifics of the issue while throwing out a couple small placations to states rights advocates, but slips up by admitting he wants the gun control ideology taught to schoolchildren while blaming the American “gun culture” as equally responsible for the attack at Newtown:

“…Public debate and discussion about the role of guns and gun culture in American society must be a key component of that process. The question that many Americans will be asking is: Why did the shooting occur and how can we prevent another shooting in the future? It is not just that guns are available, it’s also the culture that surrounds them. It’s about the people and the tools, not one or the other. A comprehensive attempt at gun control would better inform Americans about gun safety and the hazards of guns. But how best to do that? I offer one possible solution: the power of federal government intervention through schools.”


“…the Obama administration would begin to chip away at a culture of violence that is clearly deeply rooted across the country…If we can link federal funds to mandatory standardized testing then we can certainly do the same for gun-control education. This will not only be a practical step to ensure that an event like the Newtown shooting does not happen again. It’s also a moral one to combat a culture that’s buying an increasing number of guns—guns that can easily have dire effects in the future.”

And there you have it.  The answer, according to gun grabbers, is to force schools to reeducate your children to fear and disdain the very idea of gun ownership.  This is almost the equivalent of a “Prima Nocta” policy against the gun rights movement.  Essentially the Reuters author’s philosophy is to “breed us out”, taking away our ability to pass on our 2nd Amendment principles to our children through propaganda conditioning, instead of trying to fight us head on.    

Is this really the point we have come to in America?  Where hack journalists feel no qualms about openly calling for the execution of political propaganda in public schools to manipulate little kids into believing what the establishment wants them to believe?  I realize that this is sadly already happening in many ways, but it has always been a subversive and secretive process because, well…because it is abhorrent and they know it!  Now, they openly petition for it as if it should be commonly accepted?!

Here is the bottom line:  If you can’t convince people through rational debate that your position is the correct one, and, if you have to threaten them, lie to them, or brainwash them before they will adopt your ideas, then there is something wrong with your ideas.  The truth wins out eventually under its own power.  Only disinformation needs to be forcefully injected into the public consciousness.  Obviously, there are a great many truths behind the concepts of individual self defense and gun ownership if gun grabbers find it impossible to prevail without subverting our youth.

As I mentioned in my article ‘Teachers:  It Is Time To Arm Yourselves Regardless Of The Law’, the Liberty Movement has already offered a solution to potential gun violence that can and does work far better than gun restriction or confiscation; let teachers carry their own firearms, training to defend themselves and their students.  We should demand that this solution be given the consideration it deserves instead of being outright ignored in the public arena.  If we allow gun grabbers to “shame” us into silence, or, god forbid, reeducate our offspring, the outlandish Orwellian concepts peddled by the mainstream today will seem like child’s play compared to the tyranny of tomorrow.

If you a pro 2nd Amendment, have your kid start a gun club in his/her school.

Off campus, monitored by police/military.

Hobbleknee's picture

Why should it be monitored by pigs and military that are not defending our Constitution?

Fellow parents, participate in your kids lives.  We don't need government to organize.

Caged Monkey's picture

Wait a minute, whoa, whoa, whoa...


People still send kids to school?

"... have your kid start a gun club in his/her school."

Yeah, right.  In this day and age they'll pump your kids full of drugs to keep them calm and level-headed right before they take them away to a government-approved foster family and stick your freedom-loving ass in the pen for supporting a terrorist activity.

My son was in the local youth trap and skeet club for several years.  We went to competitions where there were hundreds of 8-18 year olds walking around with shells and shotguns, and never once did I feel I was in any sort of danger.  In fact, I have never heard of an accidental discharge, let alone an intentional discharge at one of these youth events.  I only wish that Feinstien, Shummer, Bloomberg and Co.... could come to one of these events to see young people enjoying a shooting competition.

That would be awesome, if those guys do show up, be sure to invite Dick Cheney.

It would be great!

Taxpayer funded, armed detachments (read private body guards bearing arms) shooting it out against each other.

We could make a movie...Elitists Gone Wild...or sumpin...I am afterall, paying for these people to be armed protecting "public servants" as a taxpayer and I'm also a capitalist ;-)

Cheney don't need no stinking bodyguards. Put a Lone Star in one hand and a 12 gauge in the other and he is quite capable of shooting people in the face all by himself.

Turn on the TV for 5 seconds, Extreme Psychops. Same with radio and newspaper. Terrorism. Propaganda. Brainwashing. No wonder your average American is about as smart as a red brick.

NeedtoSecede's picture

That's racist! And an insult to red bricks everywhere...

I have also been involved with youth shooting sports and we have had hundreds of kids shooting on the range at the same time, and just like the poster above, never even an accidental discharge. Shit, I would trust any one of the sixth graders I have coached over the years to be safer and more responsible than most of the worthless politicians in DC.

Sad how this nation is so dedicated to its own destruction.

Secession anyone?

TwoShortPlanks's picture

Why not just ban all firearms. Is the Constitution really that up-to-date anyway? I doubt it; we're not living in the Wild West anymore.

I reckon the right to bear arms is all about fear of the Government, not your fellow citizen.

At least limit it to Bolt Action Sporting there really a need to have Semi/Fully-Auto Assult Rifles, Hand Guns, and 0.50Cal Sniper Rifles...really?!

You can't point your finger at Banks and cry Moral Hazzard when you've got so many people armed to the teeth. It's the same principle.

And think about it, is it any wonder as to why American Cops need to be equally armed? I reckon American Cops aren't armed enough when you consider what's for sale.

How about you change your handle to "short two bricks"

TwoShortPlanks's picture

The way I see it, how can anyone point to their constitutional rights with one hand and grasp a gun with the other and claim to be free…LOL…if you do that you’re certainly not free from fear. And is there any worse freedom to lose than freedom of fear, and thus to live in fear daily? No! That’s a prison.

People who refuse to give up their right to own weapons are actually shackled to fear itself, and they will yell, scream and fight to protect their bondage to fear. Fear breeds paranoia, and that paranoia in turn feeds the fear, like a dog chasing its own tail, these people enslave their own mind. They build their own prisons, lock themselves in, and toss the key away. THAT, is insane!

I hear and read words like freedom, liberty, truth, justice, rights, civil liberties, equality, etc…where do these all come from, the end of a gun barrel?

All those words come from one place and one place only, and the term Guru is where it all starts.

Guru: One who conquers the darkness or ignorance from within…to conquer fear brought about from ignorance…to remove fear and negativity through the teachings of the truth.


'Land Of The Free And The Home Of The Brave'...WTF?!...really, do you think so?! I think the average American is utterly terrified of his/her own Government, and the Government is utterly terrified of its' population...oh dear, it's a Mexican Standoff.

Letting go of fear and then letting go is the only way to be truly free. I pity those who do not know that reality.

But then again, I'm probably a raving lunatic from some fucktard corner of the world...what the fuck would I know, right?!

"The way I see it, how can anyone point to their constitutional rights with one hand and grasp a gun with the other and claim to be free..."

Sure...and along with freedom of speech, association, press, petition, habeas corpus...purely alien concepts to freedom, naturally.

Not the type of freedom that is in an ant colony.

The Second Amendment is to protect ourselves from that type of thinking.

If you wish to understand the system in its' complete form, you must study all aspects. The conqueror, the conquered, the soon to be conquered behave.

Maybe if you pulled your head out of Obama's ass you'd have the chance to guage what fresh air smells like. Go back to your SPLC or Brady Campaign toadstool and suck up to the gun grabbers gonads.

When the government is capable of eliminating drugs from the streets and the gang bangers along with the drug cartels, get back to us.

So far we have a war on drugs, a war on poverty, a war on terrorism, a war on hunger, a war on ignorance (public school funding), a war on illegal immigration, and yet the Federal government is losing on all fronts.

So, after the Federal government has started a war on US citizens via Homeland Security and the TSA, they want to open a new front in that war by confiscating the firearms of US citizens.

No wonder Homeland Security has purchased billions of rounds of ammunition. I guess they figure they're going to need all that ammunition killing US citizens that own lawful firearms.

Sadly, some 20 children had to die so the UN elites could have a reason to confiscate the firearms of US citizens.

If that's what it takes....sure!

  "If you wish to understand the system in its' complete form, you must study all aspects. The conqueror, the conquered, the soon to be conquered behave."


OK  You asked for it.

The article brilliantly dissects a meme being propagated by the news agency known as Reuters, an agency that perhaps requires some greater historical scrutiny....

(My God! Reuters is to objective, non-NWO the Washington Post is to....oh, wait)


It is difficult to approach journalism without taking into account its companions of a trinity, propaganda and espionage, and we find in this book many instances of their relationship.  On page 200, Sir Roderick [ Chief of Reuters News Agency] relates a bit of history which will not be found in the universities.  It describes a luncheon given by him for General Smuts, Sir Starr Jameson, and Dr. Walter Hines Page.  He says:
"We dined in a private room at the Windham Club, the one in which twenty years later the terms of the abdication of King Edward VIII were settled.  We drifted on to the question of the United States entering the war, for which Britain and France so patiently waited.  Dr. Page then revealed to us, under seal of secrecy, that he had received from the President that afternoon a personal communication upon the strength of which he could affirm that, at last, the die was cast.  Consequently it was not without emotion that he found himself able to assure us that the United States would be at war with the Central Powers inside a week from that date.  The Ambassador's assurance was correct to the day.  We dined on Friday, March 30.  On April 2, President Wilson asked Congress to declare a State of War with Germany.  On April 6, the United States was at war."

Perhaps not a news agency so much as as a news writer or “news” promoter?

No, wait...Pre-crime reportage!! must close the Trans-Atlantic circle...Let’s not forget WaPo!:
The Washington Post was purchased in a bankruptcy auction in 1933 by a member of the Federal Reserve's board of governors, Eugene Meyer, who restored the paper's health and reputation. In 1946, Meyer was succeeded as publisher by his son-in-law Philip Graham.

No.   I am not going to connect the obvious dots of the Wilson Administration and the Federal Reserve in this context out of respect[contempt?] for those damned to repeat history.

Hey Short Brains;

I have a friend who was driving around with an AR-15 (armalite) and a Shotgun in a rack behind his pick-up seat, and he was asked by a cop, what he was afraid of.  He said "sir, I ain't afraid of shit"!


Evidently short brains, you are not a gun owner, only a "poser", and a troll.  You have your wiring messed up.  Probably that public school indoctrination shit.  You have ample reason to be afraid, because you have your shit mixed up, and if you thought logically you would understand that without the second ammendment, you have none of the others.  Take away the second ammendment, and the others are indefensible.

The RKBA derives from the right to self-defence... it is NOT a Constitutional "right". 


That is, the RKBA is not derived from the Constitution, merely acknowledged by the Constitution.



"the right ... shall not be infringed"  indicates that the Founders recognised the intrinsic right of all men to protect their own lives and bodies ... these being their most personal of Private Property.  

And, if you cannot protect your Property from predation, then your Property has no value... thus, a life unprotected has no value.  Any passing predator can take it from you.


Since the RKBA exists independently of the Constitution, then it will continue to exist even in the absence of the Constitution. You can wriggle and scheme and politic, so as to have the document amended, but the RKBA belongs to men. Forever.


And women, too.  : )

I agree that you are a raving lunatic from some fucktard corner of the world...probably popping pills like there won't be tomorrow. Funny how police officers have the authority of "law" on there sides but still feel the need to be armed with a firearm, back up magazines, a shotgun in their squad car, a baton, a taser, a big heavy flashlight, and a phone at their chin with a fucking computer in their squad car. Obviously they don't feel safe in their defense. The 2nd Amendment, shall not be infringed means don't fuck with it!

Anusocracy's picture

You have it ass backwards.

The world would be a far safer place if governments were disarmed and individuals were fully armed.

Four hundred million killed by governments in the 20th century. That's mankind's problem, not someone trying to defend himself.

The Constitution was a document based on reality and the reality of human nature, not some utopian ideal.  That was the other guys.  You've heard the saying "freedom isn't free", haven't you?  It is a saying also based in reality.  Nothing is free, nothing is easy, nothing is perfect.  We can however, do the best we can if allowed to run our own lives.   This includes personal self-defense.

I hope whoever it is that provides you with a life which you can view through the happy little haze of, "but this is how it should be..." , stays healthy and financially secure for a long time.  

 Because if they don't  - you're fucked, dude...

Things are worse on us now than they were on our founding fathers. Our current criminals are much worse than the Redcoats. Back then Americans had the balls to keep their freedom. Americans today are just putting their heads on the chopping block willingly. Zombies all of them. Sad.

“zerohedgers often love and revere the beast that is the united states government".

There are people on this planet who aren't happy unless they're miserable about something, anything. It's a sickness. Likewise, there are people who aren't happy unless they are fearful about something, anything. It's a comfort blanket. It's a curse. It's ignorance.

I cannot believe that people are so blind. America's aggression is turning inward at a thousand miles an hour, and the US public will give its' Government EVERY excuse to do something about it...get ready to disarm.

At $85Billion/mth loss of sovereignty to foreign entities, that fear will turn inward, with a slavery/serfdom flavour, within the next few years.

Can't wait for those lights to go out.
