the chief intellectual battle zone will be the kitchen table.
between contesting views. and, between spouses, along the lines of this i have to do, to be a man, my good woman.
enough of that.
the chief locales will not be as you might suspect, in my opinion. i don't think we shall see the beginnings and the middle ground in the hinterlands and obscure villages, as in the middle eastern template. there will be some, to be sure, but in such places most of the persons who might otherwise be targets, e.g., "the authorities," are our friends and much like us in belief and disposition.
why kill your friends? who do not try to impose tyranny upon you, and who are in your elk and deer camps? who were vets, who have children in the service, "who come from where you come"?
as to the locales of the fight, i believe that we will move right to the end game.
i believe the battles of the insurrection will be fought in new york city, in washington d.c., and in chicago, illinois and finally, los angeles and san francisco, california because that is where the enemy is. in those cities the insurrection will find its most visible and iconic targets, those most actively seeking the imposition of tyranny. there will be found the politicians who posit public protection when what they really intend to impose is the foundation (in the removal of our weapons) for the attack on our other liberties, ... , that being the imposition of restrictions upon free speech and assembly.
that leads to violence, for sure, does it not?
in those cities the insurrection will find the talking heads and pundits of the great leftist mass media, and their minions, the celebrities of hollywood and the movies and television.
the insurrection will take the fight directly to its enemies. i certainly would not go elk hunting on manhattan island, because there are no elk there, let alone pheasants. i would certainly not look for the enemy within in the fellowship of my elk camp.
no, the fight is brought to our homes and our villages and our little small towns by those great urban centers that look upon us as peasantry to be told what to do, and from whom the wealth that turns the great engines of our economy is extracted.
the peasants will take the fight to the nobles, because that is who brings the fight to us. and, we will attack them in their manor houses, in their board rooms, and upon their playing fields and party houses.
and, the chief reason that we will attack the great urban centers is precisely where the elites are most vulnerable. they think they have security and police force to protect them. it is all an illusion. where will that private hired gun go, when he sees his fellows felled. first. and, most thoroughly.
what will the citizenry of the great eastern seaboard metropolis think when it sees the garbage in the streets, when its water supply is interrupted and despoiled, when its food stuffs are interdicted. how will they find us, as we attack from among them, when we look, talk and act just like them, when all we have to do to escape the scene of an attack is turn, and walk into the crowd on the next block.
we won't be very good at what we do at first. insurrectionists never are. we will take casualties, and we will be captured.
but, we will get better as the matter wears on. people will acquire skills. and, the other side shall grow very weary of being killed, of being canon fodder. my kind, we are used to it, we have supplied the soldiery for this country for generations. their kind, the "them," are not used to getting their hands soiled, ... , they don't work, they count coupons, ... , and they are not used to being targets, and they are not used to shedding blood.
that has been our job for years.
and, we've been good at it, the best in the world. the government is about to unleash the best fighters in the world, ... , upon itself, because they aim to trample on our liberties. and we, we have the option of attacking anywhere and anytime and in any manner in which we choose.
poor bastards. i pity them their stupidity. they are going to put chains on the men and women who fought the civil war, who went ashore at normandy, who fought at iwo jima and liberated the philippines.
bring it on.
p.s. the other great center of the fight will be the f.e.m.a. and "emergency" detention camps, built all over the country, with quite a few of them in colorado. anyone ever figure out what sort of emergencies they have in colorado, that require refuge camps? earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes? they have an occasional brush fire, and some really bad n.b.a. teams, but disasters?
the government shall do the work of identifying the "domestic terrorists" that send the tingle up and the cold pee down janet napolitano's legs, and they shall round them up for us, and indoctrinate them at our leisure, and when they have transformed them from urban types into rock hard committed warriors for liberty, we shall liberate them and put guns in their hands.
we shall harvest the fighters that the government has sowed for us, and we will be there. and, we shall prevail on this battlefield, because we have right, liberty and god on our side. they are mere pretenders at being tyrants, they are not hard enough for the game they put in motion. their own ambitions shall destroy them.
