The looters are all offense and the police are all defense. Because the police have no missile weapons and are too weighed down with armor to pursue their enemy, the looters can engage and disengage at will with absolutely no risk to themselves.
This got me thinking about English history and one of the past’s most significant military upsets. In the spirit of offering allied assistance to the capitalists, conservatives, and wealth producers in Great Britain, I would like to remind English men and women of their heritage. England, if your government doesn’t let you have guns, relearn the wonders of the longbow.
Remember the Battle of Agincourt – 1415!!!!
The two enemies faced one another, exchanging taunts designed to provoke an attack. Henry marched his force close enough to allow his archers to unleash a hail of arrows upon the French. The French knights charged forward only to be caught in a slippery quagmire of mud. To make matters worse, the French attackers were unable to effectively swing their broadswords because of the tight quarters of the battlefield and the continuing forward rush of their comrades behind them. Henry’s archers fired lethal storms of arrows into this dense mass of humanity until the French began to retreat. The archers then dropped their bows, picked up what weapons they could find and joined the English knights in slaying their foe. The setting sun left a battlefield heaped with the bodies of thousands of French knights and the cream of France’s ruling class. The English had dealt their enemy a disastrous blow.
The reason for my post today is that I have been contemplating being a bit more proactive on personal defense recently. It started last week, when I met a dynamic 50-something woman who does medieval weapons training and battles. Her sword skills are fantastic. However, that style doesn’t really match my strengths — whereas I do have some small skills with archery.
Add to it the class-warfare/entitlement mentality that has lead to the troubles in London. I fear that with the open class-warfare being instituted in this country, with additional fear-mongering and hate-tactics being promulgated by the “progressives” in this country, we may be headed that way. For example, Wisconsin pundit and citizen reporter was attacked yesterday. This potential threat to San Diego tea party peeps was on a comments section in one of the SLOB posts: ” I’d say your lives are in danger at this point, especially when the shit hits the fan. Those in the spotlight as such should be careful.”
There is utterly no tolerance among the extreme leftists in this country. As their world view is shown to be built on lies, this misrule, law-breaking, and incivility will continue and increase.
Then, there are the race-based, social-media-organized attacks occurring throughout the country. These are being entirely unreported by our elite media. My family lived through the 1968 race riots in Detroit. My dad won his Pulitzer Prize covering this event. I still vividly recall panic teens coming across the street from the nearby high school to our house, begging for safety and a chance to call the police.
My mom was stunned to learn of the attacks through to country. She is deeply worried and is now carrying pepper spray. I am planning to get some, too.
I am planning to resume archery lessons and training at Performance Archery by Miramar. I will be buying arrows and the best bow for my body type and abilities.
I am not comfortable with guns. I don’t think I could hit the side of an aircraft carrier even with targeting accessories. I don’t like the idea of guns in the same home with my son. I don’t like having to bow down to the bureaucrats in the state to assert my 2nd amendment rights.
However, if these shadows do not change, I may have to upgrade my personal defense line to include this enhanced technology. I admire those 2nd Amendment supporters even more now, who have allowed me to make this choice that our English friends to not have. It is a good think Operation Fast and Furious has been upended, otherwise we wealth producers and conservatives could be much easier targets.
Englishmen, remember why so many of your people are named “Archer” and “Fletcher”. Recall your heroes. You cannot trust your government to defend your property and person with as much vigor as you can. Johnny, grab your bow!
Lodon, how far your leftists have lead you away from these immortal words of your brave King!
By Jove, I am not covetous for gold,
Nor care I who doth feed upon my cost;
It yearns me not if men my garments wear;
Such outward things dwell not in my desires.
Do you really want the new English motto to be: Robbing from the earners to let the takers keep?
In honor of KT, I conclude with this graphic:
