Just be a Victim…

DC’s solution to Crime.  Just be a Victim.

You shouldn’t have guns in DC, because opposing Crime just “escalates the situation”.

This sort of Liberal Soft Brained thinking is why our country is so messed up today.  This “Be A Victim” response is asinine and anti-american.  This is even more disgusting than that slut Rush insulted.

  1. It’s a false argument. “Just give him your wallet, it’s not worth your life/killing someone over.”

    No, $40 and a couple of credit cards aren’t worth dying for, but what if the ‘mugger’ is threatening your life, meaning that intend to maim or KILL you? At that point, you’re dead anyway, if you fight you just might win.

    Three men with guns verses two unarmed people. . . That kind of disparity of force, especially in a town where virtually nobody is a threat to the muggers, doesn’t mean they really want your money. They are doing it to easily control the situation, and once they establish that control, they can do whatever they want.

    That is Highly Threatening behavior, and the ‘don’t escalate’ talk just says to me that this ‘leader’ just doesn’t want to think about it.

  2. I just saw her picture tonight. I find it hard to believe she has enough guys lining up to get it in that she is going broke buying protection. More like wishful thinking.

  3. Oh, and on the original topic. This is America and we are Americans and we don’t just stand around and get robbed and anyone who suggests otherwise should consider a change in citizenship.

  4. *facepalm*

    George, I had this very same talk with someone earlier today after they told me about a bullying “incident” that happened recently at a nearby school.

    Short version: a student tried to confront a bully who was picking on another student, the bully physically assaulted that student with a weapon (improvised, yes, but still a weapon) and said student slugged the bully in the mouth.

    I just about had a stroke when the person who told me the story insisted that the student who intervened “took the wrong course of action” when he punched the bully. IMO, the school should’ve given that student a freakin’ medal and filed criminal charges against the bully. But no, they can’t have the sheep standing up for themselves!

    Could someone please explain to me HOW IN THE HELL being a victim became morally superior to self-defense?

    1. It is the mindset that the political aristocracy wants the peasantry to have. If you won’t stand up to a bully or fight off a mugger, you wont intervene when an exalted knight is stomping your neighbor to death.

    2. Actually, I agree… that was the wrong course of action…

      You don’t go bare-fisted against someone who is armed. The student should have improvised his own weapon, first, before confronting the bully.

      Anyway, I have this Gandhi quote I like:
      “I have been repeating over and over again that he who cannot protect himself or his nearest and dearest or their honor by non-violently facing death may and ought to do so by violently dealing with the oppressor. He who can do neither of the two is a burden. He has no business to be the head of a family. He must either hide himself, or must rest content to live for ever in helplessness and be prepared to crawl like a worm at the bidding of a bully.”

      If /Gandhi/ is calling your behavior pathetically-wimpy, you /know/ that you are a pretty sad specimen. I love breaking that one out when someone starts going on about pacifism. Sorry, but even the world’s most famous contemporary pacifist said that capitulation is worse than violence. By his standards, you should face death with honor, but if push comes to shove and you can’t bring yourself to do that, you should fight back with honor.

      I guess that’s the problem with these folks, really: it’s not that they hate violence, it’s that they hate honor.

  5. After thinking about it for a bit, I think lawyers are to blame. A lot of corporate lawyers are the business of saving money for their employers, which means limiting the employer’s liability. By encouraging employees to not get involved, they may be able to avoid paying out in lawsuits.

    On the flipside, we have people who are trained to protect you, who have seen so much violence that they would rather have you do everything you can to de-escalate the situation. Although statistics have proven that victims who figth back have a higher survival rate, the passivity myth still prevails.

    What happens when these two modes of thought collide? You get people who are being attacked, submitting and waiting for someone to come help them, and then you have a populace that has been told it’s whole life to shift responsiblity away, to not get involved, and therefore no one lifts a finger to help.

    Thankfully, this isn’t the case everywhere in America, but the culture of avoiding responsibility is making nobody any safer.

    I recently saw a facebook post by students for concealed carry, where the police were advocating that students take action to stop an active killer that comes into their classroom. One commenter refelxively said that he thought it was irresponsibel and unprofessional for a cop to tell unarmed students to take on an armed attacker. (Because you might get hurt if you resist, right?) What they failed to realize, is that in that situation, if nobody stops that bad guy, then HE’S GOING TO KILL EVERYONE IN THE ROOM!

    I think that if there is an active killer in your classroom, you may as well try something, because you’re going to die anyway, you’ve got nothing to lose.

    1. Seriously. I recently heard of a case where two robbers held up a convenience store, robbing both the store and the roughly half-dozen customers… at knife-point.

      That’s just sad. Aside from the fact that /someone/ should have had a gun, why not just pick up some canned food and start pelting the robbers with it? Or bottles of washer fluid? Or /anything/ off the shelves? I mean, they’re outnumbered, at least three to one, and they don’t have ranged weapons. Even if you can’t shoot them because you irresponsibly left home unarmed, a barrage of thrown items will either drive them out, or knock them out.

      It’s truly pathetic, how sheep-like so many are…

  6. “Against stupidity the gods themselves contend in vain.”
    You can’t argue or have a rational discussion with people like that DC politician. Their arrogance is inversely proportional to there intelligence. The only thing that will cure them is to be thrown out of office and in DC that will only happen if second amendment conservatives take control of the legislature and the executive branch.
