USA-(Ammoland.com)- Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, there lived a group of people who called themselves the Moriori. In the past they had a history of violence that included cannibalism, but many centuries ago, their reverred Chieftain, Nunuko, demanded an end to the violent behavior.
He commanded, “From now and forever, never again let there be war…”. And so they obeyed their wise Chief and then lived peacefully together in the Chatham islands near New Zealand.
Yet, that peace lasted only until 1791 when British foreigners and Taranaki Maori found the Chatham Islands. These foreigners quickly realized that the Moriori people would never fight. And the Moriori quickly realized that they and their children would be enslaved and/or eaten if they did not resist.
A meeting of tribal elders sealed their fate. They decided that, “the law of Nunuko was not a strategy for survival, to be varied as conditions changed; it was a moral imperative.” There would be no resistance.
The chosen non-violent Moriori path was seen by the Maori invaders as cowardice and so, they brutally treated their new slaves as worthless cowards. On March 19, 1933, the last full-blooded Moriori, Tommy Solomon, died.
Chief Nunuko had created a suicidal culture that would eventually accept slavery, rape and death for their families and themselves.
We today view this as a failed culture, but there are some who would thrill to the bravery of the Moriori, whose principles guided them onto the path of death rather than to the use of violence, violence that would have protected their families and children. One might almost admire such a virtuous path, until we imagine the horendous screams of dying families.
We gunnies do not accept the virtue of such a path. It defies our acceptance because we would never abandon our families to such a fate and we understand that sometimes the mere threat of violence would suffice. So many of our countrymen do not.
So, when President Trump used the words “fire and fury” to warn N. Korea about the certainty of reprisals, he was characterized, by the super-moral journalists and politicians (READ: Progressives), as a crazed drooling rogue.
We can describe, here in the US, a large group of super-moral people, who believe that we should be so helpful, giving, virtuous, and totally nonviolent, that we are willing to impoverish ourselves and send our own culture of freedom to the graveyard of ancient history. Yet, this group is full of idiological confusion.
Unlike the steadfast nonviolent values held by the Moriori, this dangerously confused super-moral group, who preach generosity and non-violence, shows acceptance and respect for the behavior of their violent sub group of black clad thugs. They explain that those of us on the Right are so deplorable and dangerous that intimidation and violence against us is acceptable, useful, necessary and even the most virtuous behavior available to them.
At the same time, the super-moral critters do not wish us to carry or use weapons, including knives and defensive sprays, insisting that we should open our national hearth, and our national bank account to all who claim sanctuary. It seems not to matter if there is a growing liklihood that eventually we become so financially bankrupt that such admired conduct would come to a pitiful end.
It appears that these critters would take joy from the inevitable cultural genocide that would surely follow an open borders policy. They value the open borders concept as part of their definition of morality, but care not to admit that they are stealing our kid’s gift of freedom.
The leaders of these critters are an elite power group, depleted of any morality, who have learned how to create their wealth from an impoverished nation rather than from the prosperous nation we once were and could again be.
Although, we Americans believe in the success of our Founders social system expiriment, and the longevity of our Constitution. The ideas therein written, were written with our blood, but can be destroyed just as readily if we are cowed into accepting our guilt, as charged by the super-moral culture, which has developed around us.
We freedom loving Americans cannot continue to accept the huge numbers of humanity who could, unknowingly, overwhelm and destroy the culture of freedom and prosperity. We can not, WILL NOT, accept the destruction of our Democratic Republic, nor its practical national agenda, or the President that we elected to implement it.
It would appear that we are beginning to successfully push back against the silly, even rediculous, claims of the Left, that we, not Antifa, are the violent demonstrators. We note that some of the super-moral leaders have been forced, by our resistance, to walk back their blatantly false rhetoric.
We The People, have a strong set of ethics and morals. We all believe that neither we, nor our President, lie, as do those on the Left. We do not need to falsely attack our adversaries or slant statistics to win their minds. We know in our hearts that we are not fibbing by omission.
We know that our moral values have placed us on a virtuous path. We do not need to compromise with liars, nor should we. WE ARE NOT THE PROBLEM, and the SUPER-MORAL COWARDS, the LEFT, among us, need to understand that WE DO NOT FOLLOW THE PRECEPTS OF THE MORIORI.
