This is a follow up on the Max doesn’t play well with Idiots Post. No, not so I can continue to argue with them, this is far more interesting. In fact, after reading comments today I have resolved to not waste my time with the unreachable 97%, and concentrate on training the III%.
This is in fact far more interesting. I just got off the phone with JC of Mason Dixon Tactical. He is a good guy and runs training at a site close to mine in WV. Here is the lowdown:
Henry Shively of From the Trenches World Report, the site on which the Idiots post occurred in comments, was on his radio show tonight criticizing me. Apparently he is angry because I “attacked his guys” in comments. I today severed my relationship with FTWR and removed my book ad, refusing to pay for it further.
Apparently, Shively is a rabid anti-semite. This means that he is the worst sort of advertisement for the Liberty movement, and in fact such hostile prejudice disqualifies you as a member of FreeFor – it makes him a tyrannist. There are plenty of bad people in the world, and they are not limited to the ‘Jews’. If you espouse radical fundamentalist hater views, you will be unable to gain the support of the reasonable members of the population. There are plenty of non-white people, veterans etc, who would fight for FreeFor, and will, if they didn’t think they would then be murdered by the resulting neo-Nazi dictatorship.
Anyway, he said that I had recently insulted a friend of his. That can only be ‘Lonnie’ of my Paranoia post. So extrapolating that, it makes sense that, as he said, he had been looking for a reason to drop me. He found it with my response to his two idiots on the Dec 14 Snowmaggeddon post.
Shively is the champion of your coward on a hill. He supports the untrained ‘hunter’ or ‘retreat sniper’ dying on his hill. These are “his guys”. He also brought up ‘Lonnie’s’ point that I may be a “plant”.
Here are two quotes of mine from comments over at his site:
“Relying on your inner mall ninja to emerge and triumph when the games begin is just not going to cut it.”
I also quoted Mosby, because I think it sums it up well:
James & Steve: I call it like I see it. You made me think of a quote I found on the Mountain Guerrilla site. He quotes Julius Caesar:
“It is easier to find men who will volunteer to die than to find those who are willing to endure pain with patience.”—Julius Caesar
Mosby: “I see a lot of guys respond to suggestions to do more PT or other training with the idea that “Training is too hard. I’ll just sit on my hill and die. Like Julius Caesar, I think that’s a coward’s approach. Take it how you will.”
But anyway, none of that matters. The facts of what I said and why I said it doesn’t matter. Because it was just a set up, an excuse by a rabid anti-semite to attack me, because I criticized his beliefs. Shively is a fundamentalist and a ‘conspiracy theorist’ of the worst kind. Not conspiracy fact, but those far out theories. He discredits FreeFor.
So there it is. It has just increased my resolve to focus on those that are serious and worthy of the training. I mean, without false modesty, I know I do good training, and by doing this he is depriving some of the ability to get that training, because they will be turned away from me. But the silent majority of good reasonable people will not. They know the truth of what was said.
It is clear that we live in a time of tyranny, a police state. But it is also clear that there is no mileage in blaming that on on racial group, such as the Jews. Such hatred is anathema to Liberty. People like Shively are, in fact, enemies to Liberty. The sort of Liberty these types would usher in, if they ever gained power, would be one of hate and murder. Being a fundamentalist of any sort, including a hater like Shively, does not advance liberty.
Shively is a traitor to Liberty.
Why is this important? Why am I discussing it? Because it is important. It is not just ‘drama’. The difficulties that I have experienced here are a lesson to all of us. They show the difficulty of advancing the cause of Liberty. It shows that many so called ‘FreeFor’ are not at all. It shows how small the pool of actual Resistance fighters is/will be.
III%? I think that may be wildly over the top. But no matter, it is only those that are prepared to train and fight effectively that will make a difference, the rest are just committing noisy suicide. Cowards.
