In 1768, the Powers-That-Be Tried and Failed to Seize Americans' Guns. Wash-Rinse-Repeat in 2022.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: Reading about history is fascinating. Living our own period of history sucks!
Yet I recently found comfort in a brilliant Twitter thread written by The Red-Headed Libertarian revealing the futile (yet eerily familiar) attempts by the British to deprive Americans of their firearms back in 1768.
It didn't work in 1768.
It won't work in 2022.
It'll fail when they try it again in 2237, 3629 and 4152 anno Domini...if the Good Lord allows this cockeyed planet to limp along for a few more millenia!
All we have to do is match our Founding Fathers' steely resolve.
But first, a brief but surprising history about firearms in general.
On Wednesday, this article was "done" and my mouse hovered over the "Publish" button but I could not click it. I had that gnawing feeling in my gut that something was wrong, but I couldn't quite put my finger on it.
Two days later, it still feels wrong but I gotta publish something, dang it.
Our story begins with MonkeyWerx. Remember him from my December 2020 article US Military Air Traffic Quadruples and Everyone's Wondering Why? MonkeyWerx follows the air traffic around the world but in his August 17th YouTube video (see below) he was watching the famous footage from the Kabul airport we've all seen a hundred times. And it bothered him too.
We were told this crowd was desperate to come to America. But to MonkeyWerx and I, they looked nothing like desperate wannabe refugees. In fact, it appears they were happily fare-welling a plane they didn't want in their country. Oh...and you don't walk in front of nor behind jet engines, at least, not without getting hurt or burned. (Where's the mirage, the heat wave shimmers from the heat of the engines!?!) That's probably why this meme, which I actually believe is wrong, is making the rounds of social media.
When the crisis in Afghanistan first broke, we experienced it with our emotions but now we're returning to critical thinking and patriots have already caught the MSM recycling images from Syria on the assumption that Americans will never notice.
How else are they lying to us?
