TTAG reader JJ watched Alex Jones’ pantomime performance on Piers Morgan’schat show last night. The mistsofcarolina.blogspot.com blogger was not amused. He wrote this cautionary response, republished here with his permission.
Khrushchev said that the sure destruction of America would happen from within and that they will take down the country without firing a shot. Stalin himself pointed out that violent revolution often preceded the establishment of a socialist order, which in turn, would become communism. Given these two notions, one is safe in concluding that any current revolution within America will not involve foreign powers, but will come about by a form of an internal, social breakdown. This, one may reason, is also by design. In regards to starting a revolution, my argument (and plea) is for cooler heads to prevail . . .
Many people out there are clutching their guns and talking about starting a revolution. So it is of no surprise to me that the public is being intentionally agitated in order to instigate some sort of armed conflict between the American people and their government. If the American populace fires the first shot, this will not be a good sign. People forget that we never started a war with the British, it was the British that caused that to happen by attempting to disarm the Colonists. The king, in every sense, threw the first punch.
We, as a country and individuals, are in a dangerous situation here; fortunately, the Constitution provided for a way to deal with this issue. However, I have doubts that Americans will properly choose this path. Even now, hotheaded individuals are calling for revolution in order to keep our private property rights and liberties. As was pointed out by a police lieutenant from North Carolina, ‘liberty broadcasters’ (against their knowledge) will be used to fan the flames (in order to start an internal revolution) [Call to Decision, GCN, Jan 2, 2013]. Once the first shots are fired, this in turn will allow for the implementation of martial law.
