The Time Has Come, The Threat Is Here, Will You Stand Ready?

Written by Larry Usoff on October 9, 2020

The time has come…

“The time has come, the walrus said, to speak of many things, of shoes and ships and sealing wax, of cabbages and kings.”  That’s from “The Walrus and the Carpenter” by Lewis Carroll…and I think it’s time to talk the talk and walk the walk.

America is under siege and it’s time, maybe past time to take it back. In my not-so-humble opinion, we, the patriots, are going to have to take a very hard line and it’s not going to look good, even though it will be necessary.

In the past few weeks video clips have shown cities in flames, open looting with little or no response from the police, and a resurgence of “the knockout game”. I wouldn’t presume to know what is in the minds of those in charge of those cities, letting them be laid waste, but I can see that it’s not good.

Because I’m not running for any political office and nothing that is written by me will have any effect at all, the plan can be laid out in very simple language…harsh, but simple. BLM, Antifa, and any other group that shows definite anti-American, anarchist tendencies must be faced, with overwhelming force and yes, that means lethal force, if necessary. When they are in your city, you should be, as the police say, “armed and dangerous”, but not to the good guys. Sometimes just a show of force will do the job, like brandishing a weapon to a potential mugger. In other instances, just showing will not be enough, you will have to actually shoot someone.

Don’t think that it’s going to be like a video game, or a long-distance shot that snipers make. No, it’s going to be up close and personal, but it will be a choice between their life and yours…victim or survivor. If you believe that you can, or cannot, do that, you are making the choice to be victim or survivor. Should you decide to be a survivor, and you do not own a gun, buy one…or two. Choose that weapon carefully because, in truth, your life may depend on it one day. Get to know it well, and be able to use both hands to shoot it.  Find a gun range and visit it once a week and shoot at least two loads of ammunition through the gun.

If you will be carrying a concealed weapon, make sure that you are legally allowed to carry it and that you can reach it and bring it to bear on the threat. My personal carries are two .380 semi-automatic pistols that are in my front pockets. When I am out of the house or the car, at least one hand is in my pocket and my head is on a swivel. Some videos have shown people walking past older folks and then sucker-punching them with the intent of killing them with one punch, which is called “the knockout game”. Do not assume you’re in a safe area just because no one is close. An attacker can close the distance of 10 yards in about a second, so it’s important that you are aware of who and what is around you.

No one, truly, is going to avoid being subject to some form of this madness that has overtaken America. If the United States is to survive in its present form, clear heads, and patriots, are going to have to persevere. We are rapidly approaching an election in which the hyperbole has come true. We ARE going to vote for an America in which time-and-tried values will continue and we will still be a constitutional republic, or we will be divided into large(and small) areas in which socialist/communist ideas will be in practice. The latter is not the America in which I would prefer to live and hope that the patriots in my country will feel the same…and show up at the voting booths and affirm that commitment.

Once again, at the risk of sounding like a warmonger, a hawk, or whatever other label is being used, it appears to me that rioting and looting has not been for political reasons no matter what the signs and banners might say. It boggles the mind why the stealing of a large-screen TV might be, in any way, honoring the death of someone. It also calls into question why statues that have stood for a hundred years or more are suddenly offensive and must be taken down. We, as Americans, have collectively brought to life a nation that is like no other on earth and, for those same hundreds of years, was the model that other nations emulated…or tried to.

Previous administrations, and in particular the Hussein reign of timidity, stupidity, and criminality, saw nothing wrong with the statues, the businesses that were performing their daily routines and the marches that were peaceful. The marches turned into riots, the riots turned into looting, and the level of anti-authority rose to the point of open anarchy.  President Lincoln, during the FIRST American Civil War said this: “A house divided against itself cannot stand. It will become all one thing, or all the other.”

Parting shot: If it comes down to a neighborhood-by-neighborhood shooting war, make sure that you are alive when the fracas is over. America MUST survive as the noble experiment it has always been. America first, always.
