01.18.07 – Another Ruby Ridge in the Making Here Folks?

It sure seem that way here in both respect to the foreshadowing for state sponsored violence and ready-made answers to why it always seems to go down this way. This news item caught my eye on the Drudge Report website today.

A former militia man convicted of tax evasion,” says the story, “prepared for a government siege Friday at his fortress-like home, but U.S. marshals gave no indication they were planning to confront him.” [Emphasis mine]

Ah yes, goes the mainstream media, a much dreaded and no-doubt thoroughly reprehensible oaf of a tax cheat and “ex-militia man” [sic] is holed up in his “fortress-like home” in the Granite State waiting for his own personal Armageddon with the feds after being convicted in absentia of tax evasion. But the slagging doesn’t stop there folks. Look at what the article goes to say about the people that support this man.

The Browns' case has found support on the Internet from militia members to libertarians and anti-tax groups.” Yikes! Militia members, anti-tax groups and even libertarians are in support of Mr. Brown; A trifecta of subversive evildoers to be sure, eh sheep? [Emphasis mine]

No doubt some day soon, stories such as these will include terms like abolitionist [sic] and freedom-lover [so called] as well, should those terms find any widespread acceptance. And they will be added to the mix for sure, should the rebranding nomenclaturists of the liberty movement make any headway whatsoever in their rebranding efforts in order to circumvent the influence of the mainstream media, pundits and academics, as seems to be the intent.

Chalk up another media coup for the Southern Poverty Law Center, the ADL, and all the other regressive sorts who make it their business to dominate political discourse and language, and hence the perception and interpretation of current events in American political culture. And so, if and when Mr. Brown and his wife get arrested, shot, gassed, burned alive, or whatever sad fate no-doubt awaits their Custer-like “last stand,” it will all be swallowed whole by the ever content and listless grazing sheep that inhabit this nation as their just desserts.

And so it goes.

Pink Floyd:
What do you get for pretending the danger's not real.
Meek and obedient you follow the leader
Down well trodden corridors into the valley of steel.
What a surprise!
A look of terminal shock in your eyes.
Now things are really what they seem.
No, this is no bad dream.

if only there were a group ready to defend these people. i wonder how far the state is willing to go for some tax dollars?will they shoot it out with 20 guerrillas? 30? i'd like to find that out.

Well, like the loan sharks say, "it ain't the money it's the principle of the thing". The small amount this guy "owes" is dwarfed by what the feds have spent chasing him down. They do it because it can't ever be seen that they'll relent or forgive those who won't pay up. The FUD they create with such actions are the whole basis for their power.

Mr. Brown seems to have a Custer-like desire to make some kind of final stand. Brave, but futile.

i agree that it is futile, but what should he do?
i think it's great if folks don't pay taxes, but that's about as far as my opinion goes on the subject. after that, i don't know what people should do to protect themselves. i don't really believe in tax protesting; it's more like i just don't pay debts i haven't incurred.
