Two imperial dreams died in Russia, Napoleon’s and Hitler’s. Another dream, of stopping and dismantling the Roman Republic, died in Italy, not by the brilliance of generals, but by scorched earth tactics. In the wake of the Sandy Hook shootings, Diane Feinstein is proposing a total ban on all handguns other than revolvers, fingerprinting of owners, and a national gun owner registry, with yearly mandatory payments. Since Senate Democrats don’t go to the toilet without Obama’s permission, it is safe to say this is Obama’s handiwork. Certainly Democrats in say, West Virginia, Virginia, and Pennsylvania are not afraid of the NRA, gun bans, and any backlash from White voters. Leading one to suspect they are not afraid of elections period, either planning widespread fraud or suspending them indefinitely as Democratic Governor of North Carolina Bev Perdue once proposed. Regardless, Feinstein’s bill is destined to die in the House (it will likely pass the Senate, as Harry Reid has told the NRA to go to hell). And Obama will simply enact it by fiat like everything else he’s done.
But its one thing to enact gun bans. Its another to make them stick. And still another to negotiate the difficult terrain that making ordinary White (and Asian) citizens subject to periodic ethnic cleansing mob action by Blacks (and Hispanics) and daily low-level crime cleansing creates. Obama may have just invaded Russia. And he is sure to face Fabian style scorched earth.
Obama “won” re-election with a popular vote margin of around 2.8% or so. That’s not a resounding margin of victory. Republicans held the House with minimal losses. The reality is that Obama to pull off a solid sweep of all ten swing states would have required a popular victory margin of around say, 8% or so, rather than his tally of around 3%, give or take. Obviously Obama cheated, and everyone knows it. Obama’s share of the White vote, still the largest bloc and the one that pays all taxes, fell from 2008’s 44% to about 36% in 2012. Obama is politically and socially and culturally, about where Napoleon was after years of the Peninsular Campaign, or Hannibal after the losses at Cannae, where despite wiping out about 70,000 Roman centurions, he nearly lost himself.
Obama politically resembles Hannibal, Napoleon, and Hitler, in the nature of his coalition. Their coalitions are strong, united in adoration of a strong man, and hatred of their enemy. For Hannibal, the Gauls, Iberian Celts, Numidians, along with Greeks and his own Carthaginians, all hated Rome and wanted it destroyed. But being disparate and squabbling, though united in the hatred, they lacked initiative, resourcefulness, and the ability to above all, find or transport FOOD. Those were the weakness of Napoleon and Hitler, who also desperately needed warm clothing for the brutal Russian Winter, and arms and ammunition, and in Hitler’s case, gas and diesel fuel as well.
The famous line chart showing the temperature and size of Napoleon’s armies as they advanced and retreated from Moscow at the top of this post is telling. All of Napoleon’s skill as a general, and the poor state of Russian military men and generalship, could not fight against Winter.
Russia had then (and now), bad to appalling roads, a population used to invasion and practiced in scorched earth and moving away, and brutal weather that made travel possibly only by Summer and early Fall, with Spring and Late Fall the mud season (where nothing moves) and Winter being completely snowed in, impassible for all save natives practiced on snowshoes (later skis). The distances are vast, resupply is not possible because of the distances, there are no fortified positions that can be held against attack, terrain does not favor “bite and hold” because Russia lacks the deeper valleys and mountains of Western Europe so favorable for defense. All that was known to both Napoleon and Hitler, who attacked anyway seduced by the weak, ineffective, and inept generalship of their enemies (which was in fact appallingly bad) and the degraded state of the men who were kept as serfs that formed the bulk of the Czar’s and Stalin’s Soviet Armies.
The map, however, is not the terrain. Anyone who had traveled to Russia from say, Berlin in either era would have advised against it. Tyrants however do not take serious counsel.
That was the downfall of Hannibal also. After killing about 32,000 Romans at Trebia in Northern Italy (after making a shocking and surprise crossing of the Alps and before that a stealth advancement through Gaul), and then about 15,000 at Lake Tresimene in Central Italy, Hannibal pulled a hat trick by killing about 70,000 Centurians at Cannae. Yet four years later Hannibal was recalled to North Africa where he was soundly defeated. For all his magnificent generalship, his men still had to eat. The Romans made sure they did not, by practicing scorched earth tactics, and building their own naval forces to prevent resupply, while refusing any decisive engagement against Hannibal.
This is the model for Republicans against Obama and gun bans. Obama will look weak and tyrannical, both, as Obama moves deeper into his reign as pseudo-monarch and semi-tyrant, and as he resorts to gun raids and imprisonment of gun owners, who will be of course 100% White and almost certainly middle class. There are about 100 million gun owners in the US, and Obama and Dems promise to make them all criminals. While of course allowing Black and Hispanic thugs freedom to use and possess Black Market handguns and assault rifles. No one is, Steve Sailer to the contrary, talking about a gun sweep of say, South Side Chicago, and arresting lots of Black felons holding guns in violation of current laws. Rather Obama and Rahm and Feinstein are talking of gun sweeps to arrest a middle class White guy who did not register his father’s 1911. Said 1911 now illegal to own under the new Obama Executive Order which Obama argues has the full force of law. Because “I Won.”
The model being to fight Obama at every turn, offer no decisive battle of annihilation, and cut off his money supply. Over the fiscal cliff? Sure. It will hurt Obama’s ability to “feed” his army of Sandra Fluke sluts doing paper-pushing NGO or government jobs, push more EBT money to ghetto voters and barrio (illegal alien) voters, and hand out goodies generally to crony capital. Obama’s great weakness is that while his army all HATES HATE HATES Straight White men like Hannibal’s hated Rome, they still have to eat. And none of them are good at finding food on their own.
In this analogy, wealthy Conservatives buying up media operations, and running them at a loss as a “navy to challenge Hannibal” is a good idea. It will prevent Obama from getting resupplied via media money to hire his cronies at make-work jobs (George Stephanopolous, Chris “Tingles” Matthews being excellent examples). Since the media will be chasing the same ad dollars with more competition (weak players propped up zombie like by Conservatives with money).
What Andrew Breitbart did was important, it needs to be pushed even farther. And “moderation?” That was one thing when the golden prize of the Presidency was at stake, but given the demands of Fabian warfare, politically, moderation is a loser. A war of attrition and supply is what is needed. And that demands no moderation at all. Rather a grinding semi-guerilla warfare to pick off and make examples as the Partisans in WWII did with the Nazis, or Cossacks did to the Grenadiers in Napoleon’s time.
Obama will need to divert more and more of his capital to round up and take guns. He will in doing so transform most White guys, who look favorably on the US government as composed of kick-ass Marines and Army guys such as their grandfathers (ala the late Ed Winters, of “Band of Brothers”) into guys who figure the government is their mortal enemy, comprised of angry non-Whites and go-along White guys aiming to punish them for the sin of being a non-connected Straight White guy. [Which incidentally, happens to be true. That IS what government is all about and has been about since about 1964.]
But practically speaking, Obama does not have enough people to guard the borders (and is committed to Open Borders to get lots of illegals into the US to create votes, and of course allow all sorts of narcotics in as well). Thus the US will be flooded with guns, and hard core guns too, the hardest of the hard, including disposable and silenced weapons, and AK-47s which are globally cheap. Initially most White middle and working class people will hunker down, but very quickly they’ll react as they did in Prohibition, and violate the law flagrantly and repeatedly. As they do now with laws regarding Marijuana.
The whole purpose of gun control and gun bans is to create a feudal class. Which is why women like it so much.
Free men own weapons. Slaves own nothing. Not even their lives.
A de-facto Princely class protected by men with guns (Obama, Warren Buffett, David Letterman, and other big shots) is what is wanted by the elites and lets face it, most White women and pretty much all non-Whites. Then there are the knightly class, formally and approved armed men (and women) in the police, military, TSA, and myriad government agencies like Dept. of Education, Social Security, and the like. This includes the private bodyguards of rappers, celebrities, and the like. Then there are the serfs, legally third-class citizens who are allowed nothing, not even defense of their lives. These guys are know as Straight White men without connections and money. Which describes about 90% of them.
For most White women, this makes “spot the Alpha” easier. It is the dominant, big guy, the biggest ape in the group, not the perhaps smaller, weaker guy proficient with weapons. What women really hate is the ability of a weak guy, oh like say Doc Holliday, to intimidate because he’s proficient with weapons. Technology being the equalizer that evolution still has not caught up with yet. This is why women LOVE gun control and gun bans. And why particularly White guys hate hate hate the idea.
But Obama’s view of America is basically, a supersized Chicago. He has no idea of America’s breadth, its history, its traditions, its values, and in fact hates all of it and wants it destroyed. As do frankly most Black people, viewing America as irredeemably tainted by Slavery and Segregation and the failure of Black people to dominate math and science and Silicon Valley as they do the NBA and NFL proof of America’s sinful racism which is all that keeps them from running Apple, Google, and Twitter. They know this because every scientist, teacher, doctor, and researcher they see on TV is Black.
But the reality of gun ownership is that most White men feel it a requirement to protect against the grinding violence of Black crime, day after day, and irregular eruptions of Black mob violence better classed as anti-White (and Asian) pogroms. At four in the morning, a home invasion can be stopped by a shotgun racked, or shots fired from a pistol. The police? They may or may not come, minutes or hours (often hours in rural areas) even if called. They certainly won’t be there in seconds. Not even in dense urban areas. And most often, a home invasion, street robbery, assault, break in, and carjacking is likely to be the work of several Black men. Not always. But mostly. That same shotgun or pistol will protect against brutal White or Hispanic or Asian home invaders as it does against Black ones. Guns don’t discriminate that way. They are useful in equalizing violence which is why so many people globally want them.
No multicultural society has ever had low ownership rates of guns, like say Japan. None. At best they have illicit, hidden ownership, because you can’t do anything if you’re dead, and avoiding death is priority number one for most people.
Obama is likely going to make public examples of various Middle Class White guys, a bad move (Machiavelli argues a Prince must be cruel early in his reign and generous in the later years, as people forget the cruelty after a few years, but despair if it continues or gets worse). This will only make most White Americans into avid lawbreakers with respect to taxes, and turn America into say, Italy or Greece in tax collection and general honesty. Meanwhile the ghetto will continue to be plagued by guns and various home invasions will take place, with spectacular prosecutions of White homeowners defending themselves against Black or Hispanic attackers, with “illegal” firearms while said home invaders are given immunity from prosecution for their crimes including “illegal” firearms.
All that will do is make Whites more angry, more radical, and more distrustful of the government in every respect. Whites (save the elites of course) are likely to try to avoid government wherever possible, and turn to organized crime networks of well, guys like Whitey Bulger, to “navigate” through Obamacare and other bureaucracies. I.E. payoffs for better care, and even perhaps do it yourself mafia threats to insure a good outcome. Things like that are not unknown in other countries.
ObamaCare + Gun Bans = Organized Crime Windfall.
Obama’s dream of a universal, socialist America with gun bans, constant “kill Whitey” days (just like Hawaii’s Kill Haole Day and rule by a “Royal Family” of princelings is likely to founder on lack of money.
What conservatives must do is to hasten that day, by denying Obama’s organizations and allies the money. Starve them. Scorched Earth. Obama advanced too far. He can dominate any one city or metro area, but he can’t get everyone’s guns in America. He does not have the people. Or the money. And guns will flood in like cocaine and heroin and marijuana and illegals do now, as soon as they are outlawed by Executive Order.
This will have to be the acts of spontaneous people, not a coordinated central authority. Obama is good at destroying those, with the media on his side and America’s love affair with Black people enabling him to destroy any potential leader against him. [America, by and large, loves Black people and can’t get enough of them. America loves Black people killing White guys, as the $27 million for “Django Unchained” over Christmas and the day after proves. Oprah’s billion dollars and Jay-Z’s half billion show just how much America and White people love Blacks: a whole lot. Which is Obama’s great advantage — a lot of Whites love him because he’s Black.]
But once Obama cannot “feed” his army, they will melt away as the Numidians, the Greeks, the Gauls, and the Iberians did from Hannibal. Or the Germans, Poles, Dutch, Italians, and so on did for Napoleon, retreating from Moscow. Or the Hungarians, Romanians, and Italians, did for Hitler. The one great weakness of coalition armies is their lack of discipline, particularly under stress, and always under hunger. They lack the ability to conduct fighting retreats while starving and tend to collapse fairly soon when hunger hits.
As much as Obama’s army of White women, think Sandra Fluke or Lena Dunham (which describes sadly most White women under sixty today), Blacks, Hispanics, Gays, and hard left elites, HATE HATE HATE straight White men, and wish to see them exterminated, they lack the discipline to work month after month without money. So they should not have any. And attacks of opportunity, such as the blogger who listed the names and addresses with Google street views of the newspaper that published the same kind of maps for gun owners in NY State, should be encouraged at every opportunity. The same of course goes for demanding David Gregory be sent to jail for a year for violating DC’s gun laws by waving around an AR-15 magazine in the DC studios of Meet the Press.
Obama thinks he’s just defeated the final remnants of White guydom in banning guns (which is why he’s all for it — Obama really DETESTS White guys like most Blacks, though he’s fine with White women). Most likely he’s invaded Russia, with winter fast approaching. Let’s hope he has as much fun as Napoleon and Hitler, and encounters the same scorched earth that Hannibal found.
