Guest Post: Survivor Of Communist Cuba Defends 2nd Amendment

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Submitted by Brandon Smith of Alt-Market,


In the past, I have corresponded with a few survivors of communist despotism, and what I have found is that most if not all immigrants that actually lived in a collectivized state with a disarmed population fight harder to defend the U.S. Constitution than half of the people who were actually born here.  There are a lot of overgrown children in this country today who have NO understanding of the consequences of the path our society has been set on.  They look to big government to take care of them because they are too lazy or apathetic to do it for themselves.  They look to big government to protect them because they are cowardly and have no concept of self-defense.  They look to big government as an attack dog that they can hide behind when they seek to impose their ideology and zealotry on the rest of us.  They bow down to big government because they are afraid of becoming the "nail that sticks out".  They submit to authoritarianism because they have no honor, and, no sense of appreciation when it comes to the concept of true liberty.

These sad but useful idiots within our population love to argue in the name of the state, constantly claiming that the ongoing restrictions of our individual freedoms and constitutional rights are "for the greater good" of our society as a whole.  They insist that even though the political measures being taken in the U.S. today are almost identical to those implemented in communist police states, this time "things will be different".  This time, the collectivists will "get it right".  Not surprising, though, is the fact that the vast majority of those that call for rights restrictions and socialized mega-government have never actually lived under the kind of system they are demanding.  They have absolutely NO idea what it is really like, nor do they ever attempt to learn from those who comprehend full well.

Some people know.  Some people have lived it.  Some people have experienced the consequences first hand.  And, for anyone with the intelligence to listen, this is what they have to say about gun control and the path to tyranny...

A lot good old boys can reach out and touch their game at distances a lot further than 400 meters. With new tech like this built into optics magnum hunting rifles in the hands of even the average shooter are good to 800 meters and further.

BTW, That Savage is allegedly a spectacular gun for the price.  Additionally, it weighs about 1/2 the Onlylongrange product.  When it comes down to what your average citizen "should" get, 10-15 pounds extra of rifle is a LOT.  You'd be better off spending the saved difference at the range, and spending some time out in the country developing some field craft.

Those target guns are fine if you have a hardened bunker to shoot from but I don't. I will choose a weapon that is easily portable and is 1 MOA less accurate over 300 meters anyday.

Any good old deer rifle will do just fine, 30.06, .270, 6.5, 7mm, even .243.

Or, if you are poor a plain old surplus Mosin. It probably still has dirt on it from when it was recovered from a ditch outside Leningrad, and it may not have been cleaned since 1945, but it will go BOOM without being cleaned on the proper schedule with a $10/oz synthetic Teflon infused designer bore cleaner.

For hunting, a Savage model 110 is cheap and shoots straight.  Hard to beat for the price.  All calibers mentioned are fine, but .308 is NATO and generally easy to find.  30.06 is not bad either and with 180 grain bullet, will take down a moose.

Mosin 91/30 is a reliable $100 beater gun and 7.62x54 steel core ammo is cheap.  Not a great hunting gun without a bit of work.  In which case, you should have just bought a Savage.

Regardless, any gun you buy is AN INVESTMENT WITH RETURNS GREATER THAN GOLD.  With the UN's bullhorn Cult (Feinstein, Schumer, Blumenthal, Bloomberg... see a pattern?) and Obama screaming gun control, gun values double each year.

the lapau is way too overpriced ... just get a Remington 700 .308. get the face of the bolt trued and have fun.  the firing pin needs to be modified as well, as it can become "sticky" within the carrier in cold weather and create an unsafe condition. (fires when you close the bolt).

that's what i used in USMC snipe school and it's a great platform.  1000 yds plus all day long with a little breathing control and a steady base.

i have a rock laying on the ground at the corner of my dead end road 3/4 mile away from my front door.  engraved on that rock are the words "past this point, you are in range" my neighbors know this to be true and feel safer for it.  just a phone call away and i can cover many of their houses.  several have told their children to call me before calling 911 if they have a break-in etc ... now that folks, is why I joined the USMC.

Oh common the .308 is just warming up and in the realm of the nancy-boy round the .223 which is starting to have as much kinetic energy has a BB gun (Ok that was a joke AR15 crew)

Sure 300 to 400 yards with my Aimpoint, but once I change the glass, and I'm good out to 600 to 800 yards.  But wind is still a bitch.

It seems to me that Dear Leader and his regime believe their own propaganda. I don't believe they fully appreciate how angry the citizenry has become - not everyone can be pacified with an Obamaphone and a SNAP/EBT card at a strip joint. It is very telling that a lot of state governments are starting to very publicly push back.

Maybe the coming shit storm can be avoided, but I doubt it. Dear Leader seems to almost be intentionally aggravating the situation - reckless economic policies, stirring up racial tension, demands for draconian gun control, and ignoring the rule of law and the Constitution.

Bingo! Intentionally aggravating the situation is exactly what they're doing. It's a game of poke the tiger with a stick. As soon as he (we) swipe, out comes the declaration of Marshal Law and then outright gun confiscations - DHS gets to use their shiny new APCs, drones, LRADs, and loose some of those newly obtained .40 cal ala Dorner style. How successful they will be in that scenario is another matter.

We just have to not swipe at them, but wait them out using what legal methods are still viable to stop them or until the system implodes. Which ever comes first.

@Proofreder [sic]

Said the pot. I think your glib post says more about you than it does me.

Let's break it down, shall we...

While my marshal was a whopper and embarrassing my usage/spelling of loose was accurate as one of the meanings is "to let fly" a la "loose an arrow," not lose as in gone missing or misplace, or lost face (http://www.thefreedictionary.com/loose). I guess I should have used 'shoot' instead. With that, let's do some substitutions to see what makes more sense:

FS&2: DHS gets to use their shiny new APCs, drones, LRADs, and loose [to let fly] some of those newly obtained .40 cal ala Dorner style.

Proofreder: DHS gets to use their shiny new APCs, drones, LRADs, and lose [to misplace] some of those newly obtained .40 cal ala Dorner style.

Uh oh, Grammar-Nazi made a grammatical error.

Proofreder: Such tragic errors - just totally invalidates the missive. Idiot or Fool? Not to difficult to figure this person...

Project much? Just how is my "missive" invalid, esp given your invalid missive. Guess you're just as idiotic and/or foolish as I.

There are way more intelligent posters on ZH than either of us. Even they occasionally make grammatical errors. It's inevitable. What I find interesting is that you're not posting belittling comments to them. Why not? Was it something I said that rankled your hippie sensibilities?

We'll never know since you weren't capable of adding any substance to the discussion. Rather, you attempted to invalidate my post purely over one dumb grammatical error (with one of your own) instead of debating it. Your post has as much importance, value and knowledge here as the Krugman I deposited in the toilet this morning.

I think you should study up and try again tomorrow.

Thanks for playing

Too bad this author had to confuse "collectivism" with tyranny.  Roads, schools, airports, parks, GPS, defense from unelected tyrants, etc., are all collectivist products.  The key -- as imagined by the Founders of the U.S. -- is balance.  We are WAY out of balance and that needs to be fixed by taking crony out of capitalism and politics.  The 2nd Amendment is a very important part of the balance and in that I agree with the author.  Much of the rest is ideological bullshit which divides and solves nothing.

I would think that appropriate collective projects are based on democratic cooperation as opposed to those imposed from the top down.  In top down schemes the rubric "we know better" is employed, and the desires of the vast majority of the people are ignored.

For example, I have trouble comparing the Eisenhower interstate highway with the White Sea canal.

I agree.  My objection is with the idea -- advanced by many who identify with libertarianism -- that all collective action is bad.   The libertarian ideas would be much more likely to actually gain traction as a mainstream idea if authors such as this one toned done the rhetoric and acknowledged that some collectivist or socialist or other demonized concepts are actually worthwhile.  For example, even the most ardent libertarian wants a court system but such a system by definition requires collective funding and enforcement of judgments.

I think libertarians are OK with voluntary associations and collaborations.  Would they object to an Amish barn raising?  I say 'no'.

As for the court system, libertarians see the need for a court system, but not this one.  Activist justices that invent law from whole cloth invalidating common law and the constitution?  No thanks.  The court system should be more like mediation, not dictation. 

This country has swung so far to the side of the "directed collective" that to discuss compromise is simply unreasonable.  The current path has lead us to the brink of demise.  The people need to be empowered through the ballot box and the marketplace now, or this country is dead.

Ideology to one side, this country needs to decentralize and devolve power now.

Do not confuse the goals of individualism in libertarianism and the view of teamwork, versus collectivism.  One promotes indvidual success so that it can be shared, willfully, and without oppression for a common goal, the other says "fuck your personal bullshit, get to work.. it's for the children". 

Class dismissed.

There is no confusion, it is crystal clear.

So, basically you're saying..."you didn't build that"?

Stupid Soetorite. Hey parasite, here's something for ya to chew on:

...the mind is an attribute of the individual. There is no such thing as a collective brain. There is no such thing as a collective thought. An agreement reached by a group of men is only a compromise or an average drawn upon many individual thoughts. It is a secondary consequence. The primary act—the process of reason—must be performed by each man alone. We can divide a meal among many men. We cannot digest it in a collective stomach. No man can use his lungs to breathe for another man. No man can use his brain to think for another. All the functions of body and spirit are private. They cannot be shared or transferred.
     “We inherit the products of the thought of other men. We inherit the wheel. We make a cart. The cart becomes an automobile. The automobile becomes an airplane. But all through the process what we receive from others is only the end product of their thinking. The moving force is the creative faculty which takes this product as material, uses it and originates the next step. This creative faculty cannot be given or received, shared or borrowed. It belongs to single, individual men. That which it creates is the property of the creator. Men learn from one another. But all learning is only the exchange of material. No man can give another the capacity to think. Yet that capacity is our only means of survival.
     “Nothing is given to man on earth. Everything he needs has to be produced. And here man faces his basic alternative: he can survive in only one of two ways—by the independent work of his own mind or as a parasite fed by the minds of others. The creator originates. The parasite borrows. The creator faces nature alone. The parasite faces nature through an intermediary.
     “The creator’s concern is the conquest of nature. The parasite’s concern is the conquest of men.

I'll raise ya one more:

“The ‘common good’ of a collective—a race, a class, a state—was the claim and justification of every tyranny ever established over men. Every major horror of history was committed in the name of an altruistic motive. Has any act of selfishness ever equaled the carnage perpetrated by disciples of altruism? Does the fault lie in men’s hypocrisy or in the nature of the principle? The most dreadful butchers were the most sincere. They believed in the perfect society reached through the guillotine and the firing squad."

LetThemEat Rand --  You misunderstand the meaning of  the term 'collectivist'.

Individuals can work together to achieve common goals that they agree with. That is not 'collectivism', any more than a baseball team is 'collectivist'.

Collectivism is the forced pushing of an agenda, usually with the use of force. It does not recognize individual rights. It is done in the name of some 'common good'. Those in government aren't granted their powers by the people; the people exist to meet the collectivist objective.  Of course, its all bullshit. The 'common good' is nothing but a scam used by those at the top of the collectivist heap to gain the wealth of everyone else in the system and to gain power, which they love. 

You didnt attend the usual collectivist public 'schools' by any chance, did you ?  Theyve turned your brain to mush.

Maybe it is only me thinking this way, and I hope I am wrong, but this current gun hype is creating a great distraction (nothing with teeth is going to pass congress).  I am not saying the 2nd amendment isn't important...it just may become irrelevant.  It may not be too hard to disarm the populace anyway.  While most of the US population wasn't caring, TPTB have almost completed the takeover of the food supply with its regulation (the 2010 food law is just getting started), consolidation, terminator seeds, etc.  Starvation brings all kinds of desperation, and like Esau to Jacob will be guns and more to the government from those with weaker hands...and that may be enough.

There are three hundred million guns in this country. At some point "the control freaks" will suddenly cause actual militias to re-appear...waving flags, blowing bugles. Horses named "Nellie." Paens to our landed destiny given. Imagine the votes! No, I'm all for this gun control lunacy...once it causes America to start making its own ammo then finally we will more ably get to practice at a reasonable price.

Yep, there *are* 300+ million guns here. And yet the vast majority of folks.... the same people who _just heard_ "their" government mewl shit like "There are 10 million wetbacks living here! We can't ever even get close to deporting them all!!".....they fall for the 'We comin to gitcher guns, peckerwoods!' dodge each & every time the statist swine trot it out.

If the USG "can't posssibly do jack shit about 10 million wetbacks" - their own assessment - how the fuck are they ever gonna go after 300 million firearms? A fair percentage of which will be shooting back at them? Answer: they can't, and they know it. I think it's all a misdirection con: while freedom lovers are all lined up at the gun stores trying to buy ammo, NObody's paying any attention to what USG is doing while they're distracted. Cyprus, anyone? 401K's? IRA's? Gigantic brand-spankin' new NSA facilities popping up like mushrooms? A "7.7%" unemployment rate which is actually 15%? Drones as thick as flies? Race riots in the large cities, although the Reich's propaganda department isn't referring to them as such? ("Boisterous youths party down, 15 dead for no specific reason") Obamacare starting to demonstrate what a nightmare fuckstory it's gonna be?

Get out of the ammo line & look around some, folks.

"barry X, the abandoned b a s t a r d of an illicit union between a deranged, teen aged, communist w h o r e and malcolm X, has his instructions from london to permanently destroy America and her economy via debt, debase her currency, euthanize the greatest generation, demoralize her military via homosexuality, exhaust it in a wild goose chase in the "graveyard of empires", and disarm it via fiat. He does hate America, especially White America, and does love his works of treason and destruction. It is through this that all his actions may be understood.

I hope the military honors their oaths, steps up and eliminates this a s s h o l e. This son of a w h o r e is the walking definition of a "domestic enemy" and we won't sit still anymore for his treason.

NEVER EVER forget the mainstream media that conspired to foist this muslim nation wrecking b a s t a r d on America is responsible. They intentionally sold us this traitor.

The demokratik soviet is comprised of 22% of the population (blacks, jews, queers, transgenders, illegals, communists, muslims and abortionists) An amalgam of misfits tied together by nothing more than malevolent envy and hate for Property Rights and Natural Law.

This man is actively destroying an America he was raised to hate, is supported by communists in the media and must be neutralized for the good of all.

"There are a lot of overgrown children in this country today who have NO understanding of the consequences of the path our society has been set on."

EXACTLY.

The path to Tyranny is straight and wide when the populace is disarmed, and not allowed to own the same guns the police and military carry.

The Second Amendment of The Constitution is explicitly to allow the populace to arm themselves as a militia against tyranny; it has nothing to do with hunting or target practice.

We must live with extant technology, and not pretend that pushing the populace into the dark ages while allowing those in power to control the tools of the 21st century will somehow lead to justice and liberty.

The right to bear arms is not just enshrined in the second amendment.  There is legislation and case laws that invalidate the gun grabbers arguments.  See the Dick (yes) act, for one.

At this point it isn't even about guns anymore.  The President, Vice President and the media have committed a lot of political capital to this and they have been beaten.  Cleanly.  They are now desperately seeking any kind of face saving maneuver that is available.  They have only a few months more before the reality of Obamacare kicks in and they are reduced to lame duck status.

So this isn't about "the kids" or "safety" or "Gaby" or "Lee Harvey Oswald" or "old people using guns to end their lives".  It's about a President saving face.

Ah, one favourite of mine. Wonderful.

As usual, 'americans', as they can not face 'americanism', are forced to side track.

The 'american' proposition is that the gun ownership avoids tyranny.

That is the proposition to examine, not the potential dangers of gun control.

As this 'american' author is such a fantasist so disconnected with reality (a waste of 'american' talent who could have made in Hollywood as a script writer), he also prefers to peddle the highly fantasical tale that "they" are after your guns in the mecca of 'americanism' on Earth, 'America'.

'Americans' run a business of extorting the weak, farming the poor. The US is the top dog of the'american' pack, the ganglord of the syndicate of 'americanism'. An impossible move to an extorter/farmer is to surrender the means of coercion employed in the schemes of farming the poor, extorting the weak.

Guns play a heavy part in that kind of schemes: an extorter can not drop the gun he uses to coerce the extorted.

As 'americans' can not end their nature, they will keep extorting the weak, farming the poor and as such, will never drop their guns. They simply do not have that option on the table.

Expect even more guns as 'americans' feel insecured, fearing that dire straits might lead the extorted and farmed to surge.

Another consequence: in an extortion/farming scheme, primary enforcers of the scheme are given predominance. They are the backbone of the society.

Expect even more worshipping to the military, even more free pass given to the police.

Such is the way in an 'american' world.

And yeah, guns proved nothing when it comes to avoidance of tyranny. And all when it comes to enforcement of tyranny.

It's not defending the 2nd Amendment, it's about our natural rights, we are born with these rights and no other can rule over us unless WE CONSENT. The Government swore an oath to the constitution, and when they violate that oath they are commiting treason and must be removed from office. The People out here over the land that understand the Law are working to hold public officers accountable to their oath.

You will not see this on any of their controlled media outlets. They control every television, radio, newspaper, major book publishing outlets, reuters, assoc press etc. etc.

Try to convince the ignorant blacks and liberal unamerican Jews that this goverment wants to enslave them.  Would only work is the President was a white Republican!

Democide

Where governments kill their people. The numbers dwarf other forms of murder.

The simple truth is that these guys will and have killed millions before they will admit they were wrong.

Anybody that survived any kind of despotism or even their descendants fights harder to avoid it happening (which is why me, as a Portuguese - a country that was under Fascism until 74 - find a lot of the Police and Surveilance State shit I see in the UK - where I live atm - seriously scary so I end up participating in a lot of UK based forums, even though it's not my country).

The author screwed up the article when he singled out Communist despotist.

It seems to be quite a common blind spot (or maybe Achilles heel) in American libertarians: the inability to see that the right-wing speech is as much subverted as the left-wing one to bring about statism.

Remember, consumerism, removing Glass-Steagal and the liberalization of banking (which brought us the corrupt, broken system we have now) were justified with the right-wing speech of individualism, free trade and trickle down economics, not with the left-wing speech of society, state control over natural monopolies and helping the less well off.

In the end there are good ideas on both sides and yet both can and are abused. Yet, while the psychopats in both fields work in tandem for personal benefit (they share the ideology of numero uno above all else), the moderates keep themselves apart due to having been brainwashed by divisive propaganda (divide and conquer: oldest trick in the book).

Unless this changes, the US is screwed.

The US is not screwed until the constitution is torn up and the last patriot is thrown into a FEMA camp.

A lot will have to go wrong before that happens...

I'd like to share in your optimism.  Unfortunately, I don't think there are enough of us to stop the train wreck that we are on...

I guess you don't get it - left or right, it's all the same. They have the same goal.

 

I didn't vote on any of the things you mentioned, they were and are imposed from above by fiat.

 

I don't see what a group of tyrants do as discrediting individualism and personal liberty because they mouth the words.

Voting other than local elections seems to have no effect. Therefore, we must reduce the reach of government to local only.

The real issue is how many Americans realize, that as we speak, thier government is in full treason mode.

Lets all stop this macho chest beating for a second.  Lets hope and pray it never comes to the point where we need to defend our freedom from our government.  They have drones, tanks, body armour, dogs, grenades, claymores, bombs, missiles, communication, command and control, and sharp sticks. Not a cakewalk.  Not fun or glorious.  Awful. The Afghans can do it, and so could we, but just realize what we're talking about.  Don't wish for it.

It would be a battle that would last years and would be a horrible site.  I see DHS and it appears as if they are itching for trouble.

In situations such as this, the best approach would be to create a court of highly regarded individuals (with full armor uniforms) and create a document that states the facts, chronological order, money trail, and begin a court hearing parallel to the "official" yet corrupted courts available to the people of the world.  Offering rewards to whistleblowers through lenient fines and their ability to write a book would entire those with a grudge who always exist in a world where fairness does not exist.

Gag order.  Fear of retaliation and being black balled from their industry or field.  Loyal and rewarded investors.  Same country club.  Weak characters.  i don't know...

Sure, globalization sounds lovely but without an election, so the majority decide exactly who rules the world, we'll be setting up future man's destiny right back to the dark ages.  Centralization has already proven to not be in the best interest of the customers.  Customers are being phased out of the picture.

An attorney apparently represented an OWS member in court.  His father told me that it ended up being an impediment when it came to being accepted whereever it was he was applying.  But they did get it straightened out, I recall he added.

In most cases

 

it takes real, live people to don the armor, train the dogs, throw the grenades, drop the bombs, and wield the sharp sticks.

Oath Keepers

Probably our last and only hope when it all comes down. (and I hope it don't land on you)
