Annnnnnd… there’s another one. This is the 18th mass shooting since Uvalde, TX. 18 MASS SHOOTINGS IN A WEEK IN THE UNITED STATES.
I said it a few days ago and I’ll keep saying it: AMERICA IS AT WAR. After last week’s Transcendence Diaries post about this subject a few people timidly emailed me to ask “what do you mean “at war”?” “Timidly” because most, if not all, Americans have been brainwashed and indoctrinated since birth to be scared sh*itless to talk about guns or gun laws. It’s a more delicate and tense subject than religion sex or politics. And that’s just how the enemy wants it to be. They want everybody to be scared to death of talking about guns. So nobody speaks up about.
It’s not that people don’t care. They care. At least half the people care a lot. Polls show it’s a lot more. But it’s only half or less of the American population who have the courage to speak up about it. I witnessed it profoundly last week. Everybody who agreed or had an opinion about the issue and the essay and social media posts private messaged me or emailed me. Nobody wanted to comment or speak about their shock or horror or sadness publicly. And we are talking about WEEKLY MASS MURDER here.
An entire population of 370 million people socially terrified to voice their concern their sadness or their shock about mass shootings in their own country or the mass proliferation of guns in their country or the barbaric and primitive near complete lack of laws governing guns. That’s a shocking reality.
But it’s been beaten into the psyche of Americans for centuries. “Guns are a constitutional right and mass shootings are an inconvenient byproduct of that right. Deal with it. And if you find that odd or disturbing or surreal, well you must not be a patriotic American.” Even if you served in the military to defend your country you are still “unpatriotic” if you support gun safety legislation”.
So we will keep saying it over and over and over. If AMERICA IS AT WAR, who’s fighting who? Who are WE? And who are WE at war with?
WE are the American people. Any American citizen who finds our history our reputation and our present reality regarding guns and mass shootings barbaric, abominable, deeply disturbing, completely unnecessary and wants to change it.
WHO are we at war with? WE ARE AT WAR with anyone who continues to stand in the way of the country’s desire and commitment to evolve and progress on this issue, and stop the weekly sometimes daily mass shootings in our streets.
We are at war with the NRA. We are at war with the senators and congress people who are on the payroll of the NRA (nearly all of the Republican Party) and deliberately pass laws to make guns easier to get and own, OR overtly and proudly prevent laws from passing to control gun violence in America.
The enemy uses every trick and strategy in the book to defeat us. They’re doing it now. As they always have. They deliberately mess with your mind. Do not let them. They are COUNTING ON your fear of speaking up. They are counting on appealing to your patriotism or “respect for those who have different viewpoints”. They want you to believe that “mass murders are just a different viewpoint”, that it’s THEIR RIGHT to defend guns and mass shootings.
They’ll tell you that guns are their right. It’s in the constitution. Just like slavery. Just like “negroes are only 3/5ths human”. Just like “the right to steal the land of and kill so called “Indians” (this is the ignorance we are battling). Just like women not having the right to vote.
Considering it’s despicable record on human rights, “American constitution” is the poorest excuse the enemy has to defend guns and mass killings, except the fact that they’re literally trying to defend GUNS AND MASS SHOOTINGS.
The enemy will tell you that “guns aren’t the cause. Evil is”. No one of a rational reasonable even semi-intelligent mind need respond to that level of idiocy.
The enemy will tell you that mental health is the cause of mass shootings and they want to improve it. But they don’t. They consistently defund it.
The enemy will tell you that we need to create schools more like prisons in the United States, with steel doors and armed guards (with more guns) at all the entrances, but NOT do anything about the guns.
The enemy is NOT our friend. They may be in our family. They may be part of our friends’ group. They may be our neighbor or go to our church. They may be “nice people”. But if they’re defending the mass proliferation of guns without laws or licenses or permits or background checks to buy or own them, they are NOT our friends. They are the enemy.
If they are voting for or donating money to senators or congress people who deliberately prevent gun laws to protect us, they are NOT our friends.
Be sad. This IS sad. It’s heartbreaking. But GET MAD. Do not be afraid. Do not be intimidated. Do not get sucked into “respectful debates about guns or gun laws” with these insane people. Those days are over.
If you are tired if you are sick if you are repulsed and disturbed and shaken to your core by the constant parade of mass shootings in the United States and believe we needed to do something about it decades ago, GET MAD, STAY MAD, TAKE ACTION. EVERY DAY.
We need to stop this madness. The reason we are at war is because the majority of us already know this. Do not be mislead. The enemy will continue to tell you you’re crazy for wanting gun laws until you’re kneeling in a street clutching your own murdered child. THAT is who they are.
They’ll tell you they’re “sorry” and offer you “their prayers” but advise you that “we can’t take away their rights to freely buy and own as many guns as they want to and they don’t want to be boggled down by laws”.
Do not listen to them. Do not debate with them. Do not believe you have some obligation to respect them. You ARE sane. The idea that you’re not just because you want to increase laws on gun control is extreme gaslighting. Don’t fall for it.
America is at war. This is Week Two. TAKE MORE ACTION. We will win this war the same way we won emancipation of black people, or women’s right to vote, or civil rights, or hate crime laws, or equal rights for LGBTQ or Black Lives Matter . We WILL win this one too ✊🏽.
