The Zimmerman Case is not what it seems. We on the Right may have fallen for the shiny object yet again. You see, the Left are very cunning in their means and very disciplined in the pursuit of their ends. They understand incrementalism and often work under the strategy that many small victories over time are worth more than the big win. Look at how the Left have taken over the schools and the media. Many small and often unnoticed wins, step by step, while the rest of American is busy with what seems to be more important issues. Eventually these little steps, these innocuous little wins, add up to intractable situations where the Left has won outright.
The Right does not think in ‘Long March’ strategies. Often the Right is not content with a small win and will destroy itself fighting for an often unattainable Big Righteous Win. Lets use abortion as a generic example, I DO NOT want this thread to be about abortion. It starts with Sanger and goes from a back alley and shameful thing to big business in less than 80 years. The Left won small and often invisible victories over and over again through that time, they nibbled away at the edges until Roe v. Wade. Bad law or not is irrelevant; we can scream about it until we are blue faced and that would change nothing. Roe is simply a codification of the many small victories over a period of time by the left that took abortion from a shameful act to big business. Now, it is folly to believe that Roe would ever be overturned. The Big Win to roll back the abortion business will never happen. Take this as a lesson in tactics and strategy.
Now, what is another major issue that defines the Left versus the Right? Gun Rights. This is another epic battleground between the Progressive Nannyists and those who believe the Second Amendment should be read literally. There have been massive gains for CCW and Shall Issue by State. These gains are mainly over the past 25 years and will be very very hard for the Progressives to roll back. The Conservatives took a play out of the Progressive’s playbook.
However, there can be no rest for the weary on either side. If the Nannyists see CCW and Shall Issue as too much of an obstacle to overcome state by state they can render lead as a pollutant or serial number bullets. This makes the bullets too expensive for range day and too expensive for many gun owners.
How else will the Progressives act? Well, this Zimmerman case is a perfect first step to squash something they hate the most. They can’t stand the Castle Doctrine, AKA Stand Your Ground gun laws. These laws allow citizens to really protect themselves and their property without fear of an overzealous DA trying to convict them for murder for killing the intruder in their house. The Castle Doctrine cuts the Nanny State off at the knees. The citizens are allowed to defend themselves. The Nanny State loses importance and loses power. Power and control are what the Nannyists feed on.
Mr Zimmerman was, according to the evidence, covered by Florida’s Castle Doctrine. Do Not be fooled by all of this race baiting and gyrations about White-Hispanics. The Progressives are using the You Are A Racist Inc. ™ only to whip up a shiny object for us all to get lost in while they start to eat away at the Castle Doctrine. This will start in Florida, then spread. The pundits will begin to question the Doctrine everywhere and at all times all over the media to get it first vilified and then repealed. Put down the shiny object and understand what the Nannyists will try to do. Never let a crisis go to waste.
Keep your eyes on your rights, not the shiny object distractions.
