One Man’s Terrorist is the Mainstream Media’s Gun Owner



By Mr. Curmudgeon: 

Last week, the Los Angeles Times assured its readers that “cells of angry men in the United States” are “preparing for combat with the U.S. government. They are usually heavily armed, blinded by an intractable hatred, often motivated by religious zeal.” The lead editorial for March 8 goes on to inform citizens of the City of Angels that “right-wing Americans, nearly all with an obsessive attachment to guns … represent a greater danger to the lives of American civilians than international terrorists.”

The Obama Administration’s push for stricter gun laws, says the Times, will likely lead to trouble. What kind of trouble? “There’s no knowing,” said the Times, “but some kind of serious attack is increasingly possible.”

That same day, Huffington Post blogger Bob Burnett wrote, “Multiple excuses have been offered for the difficulty of enacting gun control legislation, but the most obvious problem has not been mentioned: the U.S. contains millions of Republican anarchists. These ultra-conservatives fear the government and buy guns for protection. Their Tea Party Congressmen will do everything they can to block common-sense legislation … [ultra conservatives] believe that Democracy gives them the liberty to seek their own self-interests by exercising personal responsibility, without having responsibility for anyone else or anyone else having responsibility for them,” lamented Burnett.

And with that, Burnett gets to the crux of the matter: free thinkers, God-fearing gun-owners or not, aren’t keen to allow “anyone else to have responsibility for them” … especially when that loving “responsibility” is forced upon them against their will.

The rejected advances of the creepy authoritarian stalker usually end in force. Psychologists tell us the goal of demented rapists is not sex but power over their victims. And the excuse often heard from the self-satisfied rapist is, “She was asking for it.”

That, in a nutshell, is what the opinion-shapers of the mainstream media tell the American people. “Freedom-loving Americans are asking for it.”

“These groups should be closely monitored,” concluded the Los Angeles Times editorial, “with resources adequate to the task, even if it means shifting some homeland security money from the hunt for foreign terrorists.”

The Times needn’t worry. The well-reported ammunition purchases by the Department of Homeland Security are enough to have them fanning their gun hammers for quite some time. One estimate says DHS has procured enough ammunition to power an Iraq-style ground war for at least twenty years. And news reports tell of DHS urban warfare exercises taking place in cities across the United States.

The mainstream media’s coupling of al-Qaeda terrorists with law-abiding gun-owners is enough to give one the uneasy feeling that there is a greater purpose behind the anti-gun hysteria: preemptive war. The purpose of which is to defeat an enemy’s offensive or invasion before it occurs, giving the preemptor the strategic advantage.

Dissent in the face of Progressivism’s creeping totalitarianism is defined as terrorism. The Obama-adoring media that once excused PLO atrocities, saying, “One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter,” has abandoned the moral equivalence of the past for a new absolutism: if you don’t conform with the Administration’s anti-Second Amendment initiatives, you are a terrorist.

And you know what President Obama does to terrorists? Just ask Osama bin Laden.


  1. Bloodly civil war is coming to America because they will try to disarm the people. At this point you cannot eliminate three hundred million weapons from the public domain without a fire fight. The people are too aware of the recent history of gun control and the genocides which followed.

  2. They have given us fair warning – they will leap at every opportunity to declare us a danger. The scary part is that they now have the Homeland Security arsenal to enforce their will.

  3. pls don’t forget that obama is funding and forming his own domestic army with a budget of some $415 billion answering only to the king of these united states of obamadom. including armored troop carriers for what, certainly not to protect the f-in border

  4. "common sense" legislation to a friggin' liberal means that law abiding citizens will willingly give up their firearms.
    NOT gonna happen libturds .

    • Liberalism is a mental disorder and should be treated as such.
      The Wicked Witch of The West Diane Feinstein is the queen of liberal insanity.

  5. Comrade Fecalstain is of a belief that all veterans suffer from PTSD and should not be trusted with any weapons. There was an attempt to enter into her anti-gun bill an exclusion for veterans which brought on her remark we all suffered from PTSD. She is disgusting and a poor example of a representative of California and should resign.

  6. Given the penchant of the obama administration to ddemonize ffre thinkers and adherents to the constitution, if they wish to classify me as a terrorist then so be it. Unfortunately, if the confrontation happens it will be due to the initiation of force by the government. We, the so called terrorists will NOT be the first to use force but you can damn well bet we WILL be the ones to react with overwhelming retribution for violating our god given rights and freedoms and violating the supposed laws of tbe land. Maybe they need to read it study it and read what the founders thought. There is no evaluating it validity. It is more valid now than it was then. The Constitution is the inconvenient truth that the liberal progressives fear most of all.

  7. The Obama Admin gags at calling a real terrorist act what it is, while demonizing law abiding citizen gun owners. It's worrisome what they're up to. From TSA's invasiveness and "conditioning," to DHS's stocking of over a billion rounds of ammo, thousands of real, full automatic assault rifles and thousands of massive, armored and intimidating MRAP (Mine Resistant Ambush Protected) vehicles, with gun ports, no less, to rumors of FEMA "camps" and FEMA buying thousands of stackable, metal coffins, it seems they're getting ready for the civilian uprising their own overreaching and intrusive policies are fomenting.

    See my "What's Our (Maybe Not So) 'Friendly' Department of Homeland Security Up To?" at:

  8. I havent herd of any gun owner saying they are going out and killing un-armed civilans. Think about t have you? No is what I exspect for an anser. Would owners fire at gun confinscaters? Yep. Since gun owners have the right to keep and bear arms that means you are protecting your self and your property. Trying to take my guns is an assualt on my person and property. I ILL RESIST TO THE BEST OF MY ABILLATY.

  9. “Our Founding Fathers were proud that Americans were trusted with arms because they knew that only when people are armed could they truly be thought of as free citizens. And that's where the circle closes. Those who want to DEPRIVE YOU OF YOUR RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS ARE INTENDING TO DEPRIVE YOU OF YOUR FREEDOM, period. Like the criminals their policies encourage, these elitists know that it is always best to disarm your victims BEFORE you enslave them.” — Charley Reese

    I WILL NOT be fingerprinted for LEGALLY owning a gun!
    I WILL NOT have my picture taken for LEGALLY owning a gun!
    I WILL NOT register my LEGALLY owned guns!
    I WILL NOT surrender my LEGALLY owned guns
    This Vietnam vet says I WILL NOT COMPLY!!!!!
    If the Government comes to take my guns ILLEGALLY, they will get them BULLETS FIRST!!!
    MOLON LABE!!!!!
    Live FREE or die!!!!!

  10. You can’t believe the libs definitions any more then you can believe them. Their definition of a terrorist is a free citizen just like their definition of an assault rifle is a semi automatic rifle. Mr. Webster is rolling over in his grave…

  11. How much do you want to bet that the Clinton Global Initiative is driving this"Small Arms Treaty"? Anyone have any idea what happens to a countries populace when gun control is instituted? Ever hear about genocide?
