One recognizes the true mettle of a person when the going gets rough. When the crap hits the fan. In calmer seas it is easy to exhort this or that. But it takes a special sort – male or female – to buck PC constraints, as well as the designs of the established political (often filtering down to the military) order.
While all American patriots have a right, to be more precise, an obligation to protest impending tyranny, few place their lives on the line to secure against it like its fighting forces. As such, when targets are placed on their backs, it is mandatory to back them up, not only because it is the right/moral thing to do, but because its effects will reverberate on all the citizens.
IF specifics are required, look no further.
Few are unaware of the travesty of injustice meted out to Lt. Colonel Lakin, a heroic man of impeccable credentials - adinakutnicki.com/2012/08/11/lt-col-lakin-a-hero-a-role-model-protecting-freedom-honorable-unwilling-to-sacrifice-core-values-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/ …. as an out of control Pentagon, under the purview of their wayward Commander-in-Chief, behaved more than dishonorably against a patriot doing his duty. And if anyone fails to intuit how the fish stinks from the head up, wrap your mind around this - adinakutnicki.com/2012/12/10/another-bullseye-painted-on-the-backs-of-u-s-military-vets-addendum-to-the-hunt-against-vets-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/. All orders emanate from the Radical-in-Chief.
The regime’s obsession with U.S. heroes, and patriots in general, is beyond the pale, irrespective of the Thug-in-Chief’s (every now and again) blatherings that he “values” their service. Not unlike a rapist, opining that he really, really “respects” his victim - adinakutnicki.com/2012/10/01/u-s-heroes-are-targeted-under-the-thuggish-reign-of-barack-hussein-obama-addendum-to-lt-colonel-lakin-a-hero-a-role-model-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/ . Ya think?
Alas, “Obama’s America” is not a nation where patriots dare live - adinakutnicki.com/2012/10/27/obamas-america-entering-the-parallel-universe-of-radical-politics-gone-haywire-a-short-path-to-dictatorship-addendum-to-gunning-for-tea-party-activists-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/ … as a hellish nightmare (eventually) awaits them.
Once again, a patriot rises to the occasion, and others should take his lead. Pay heed.
‘U.S. Marine’s Scathing Response to Sen. Feinstein’s Gun Control Proposal’
January 3, 2013
Senator Dianne Feinstein,
“I will not register my weapons should this bill be passed, as I do not believe it is the government’s right to know what I own. Nor do I think it prudent to tell you what I own so that it may be taken from me by a group of people who enjoy armed protection yet decry me having the same a crime. You ma’am have overstepped a line that is not your domain. I am a Marine Corps Veteran of 8 years, and I will not have some woman who proclaims the evil of an inanimate object, yet carries one, tell me I may not have one.
I am not your subject. I am the man who keeps you free. I am not your servant. I am the person whom you serve. I am not your peasant. I am the flesh and blood of America.
I am the man who fought for my country. I am the man who learned. I am an American. You will not tell me that I must register my semi-automatic AR-15 because of the actions of some evil man.
I will not be disarmed to suit the fear that has been established by the media and your misinformation campaign against the American public.
We, the people, deserve better than you.”
Cpl, United States Marine Corps
Being free means citizens can march to their own drummer. Different strokes for different folks. Well and good.
Yet while some are more effective directing “this and that” from behind the scenes, others are out front leaders. It will take both sorts, to bring the American ship of state back from the abyss.
Everyone (other than the very young, infirm and elderly) has a part to play… something to contribute.
