About a year ago I posted some dark shit I was feeling in a screed I called Combat Antenna.
It may or may not be helpful for both of my fans to read it before you go any further.
The following will make sense to some, and not so much to others...and it sure as hell is going to furrow a brow or two with some of my dear family members.
I sometimes have a hard time expressing myself when I'm not being the silly class clown, but here it goes...
Many in the patriot/constitutional restoration/militia community (understandably) whine and cry about poor turnout at our events, and wonder why attendance is so sparse.
I suppose there are many reasons for light attendance.
In my own piss-poor way, I will put forth a reason or two I came up with…
Rightly or wrongly, the movement is portrayed as a bunch of angry old racist southern rednecks running around in the woods with guns.
I, for one, have no problem with “rednecks.”
Hell…I’m a born and bred Hoosier, so it would be hypocritical for me to hate on rednecks, as I pretty much consider myself one.
In fact…I have been called a redneck more than once in my life, and I never took it as an insult.
And guns? Well…I kinda LIKE guns!
Old and angry? Yeah…you got me there.
I suppose I am also a Yankee, but over the years I have found that I have more in common with southern folks than not.
What I’m saying is that I don’t consider angry old racist rednecks to be exclusive to the south.
Clear as mud? Probably not…
That said, I have absolutely no interest in standing shoulder-to-shoulder, risking my ass, breaking bread, or sharing brotherly/patriotic moments with a fucking racist.
If you hate blacks, Jews, Hispanics, Asians, or Indians just because they are blacks, Jews, Hispanics, Asians, or Indians, then I won’t help you, and I sure as fuck ain’t gonna risk my ass along side you.
You better find a better reason to hate a fool, or I won’t help you, and Lord knows we have plenty of solid reasons to hate on the government assholes that tread on our rights and subvert our Constitution like it is cool.
That’s enough hate to last a man a lifetime.
If you are a Kluxer, I won’t help you.
If you are a Nazi, I won’t help you.
If you are a Commie, I won’t help you.
If there is one thing I learned while briefly dabbling in all things Marine Corps-ish, it is that if you have a job to do and your ass is on the line, you don’t give a damn what color of skin the guy has in the hole next to you…or where he’s from.
All you know is that you both have skin in the game.
You both have something to lose if you don’t hold up your end of the bargain.
Kinda makes things nice, clean, neat…and “moral.”
If we don’t have moral…we ain’t got shit…and I, personally, won’t help.
We must have moral leaders also.
I won’t follow any leader who has the morals of an alley cat.
That’s the kinda shit that got us into this mess in the first place.
I ain't steppin' off no porch...and I ain't goin' to no green...and I ain't standin' shoulder-to-shoulder...with a fucking asshole.
