[I discovered this after investigating a probable case of reasoned discourse involving CSGV lying yet again. Ignoring the fact that it was Twitter that made the final decision to suspend the CSGV account. Facts and the truth mean nothing to these people.
I do not understand how the pro-rights side of this argument is scary. You have absolutely nothing to fear from any of us. There is claim after claim that we are just going to go and shoot people we disagree with, yet it has NEVER happened. I subscribe to the same philosophy as Capt. Malcolm Reynolds:
"You don’t know me, son. So let me explain this to you once: If I ever kill you, you’ll be awake, you’ll be facing me, and you’ll be armed."
Again and again we are portrayed by them as nothing but maniacs who wish death upon everyone else but ourselves. The facts though is that we wish for every person to be able to make the choice to defend themselves and prevent someone else from forcing death upon them. We are not murderous, we are not short tempered, we do not want to see people needlessly injured or hurt. Scary we are not, if you do fear us your fear is irrational unless you have behaved in such a way as to threaten us or our families. We do not wish ANYONE harm yet again and again the other side has wished it upon us.
Are we relentless, you bet your ass. That is but one of the many reasons as to why we are winning.
CSGV attacked Linoge and was attempting to intimidate and harass him publishing information that is no one’s business for no other reason than intimidation. If that isn’t the case, then why would the CSGV, Joan Peterson, or anyone else on the other side of the aisle make exactly that claim if we did the same thing. Names are one thing, listing information geared at locating an individual, tying him to specific employment, and other acts is intimidation. Blogging under a pseudonym isn’t to hide, it is done to separate one’s professional life from their personal life. Blogging is personal, tracing down employment is an attack on their professional life. So why shouldn’t Linoge be relentless in this case? Their behavior could cost Linoge his job if his employer supports the anti-rights bigots. It’s happened before.
We are relentless because to enjoy freedom and liberty requires eternal vigilance from those who would seek to destroy it. The Brady Campaign currently is using the crisis of terrorism to attempt to deny people an explicitly enumerated right without due process of law. We are relentless because to do otherwise would mean that we think the rights that we fight for are without meaning or unnecessary. Ultimately we are relentless because we do not think that anyone should have the ability to force their will upon another by use of force. Should someone attempt to do so, that person should have the ability to fight back with the best tools for the job. The anti-rights bigots would disarm us by force without our consent, to then be at the mercy of someone else. Forcibly disarmed to not be able to defend ourselves. Relentless, you bet and we don’t stop until the threat has stopped!
One thing though my wife took direct offense at was that Joan Peterson referred to all pro-rights bloggers as men. This side of the fence is not just men, it is full of women and frankly I find it down right sexist and offensive as well. Never do the bigots make mention of the fairer (and much more beautiful) sex. My wife thinks its because it’s known that all the good looking ones with great figures are on this side of the debate. I think it’s much more simple than that.
They can not argue against them. Attempting to argue against them shows what they really think about self defense. It shows that they don’t want women to be self reliant. It shows that they think they should be at the mercy of anyone stronger who would do them harm.
All of these facts, don’t matter though because the other side has made up their mind. We are sub-human to them and unworthy of life. For that reason we will relegate those bigots to the dustbin of history.
