Vet Blasts Liberal Anti-Gunner: "Threat Of Tyranny, Today, No Less Than In 1700!"

At an anti-gun forum on Sunday in the Chicago area speaker Bill Jenkins place a photograph of Nazi paraphernalia with the caption, “this is what a gun show looks like,” and then proceeded to put a picture of a chihuahua with the words “this is what I think the NRA really is” up. But it was panelist Lee Goodman, of the Stop Concealed Carry Coalition, stood up and declared that the Second Amendment may not be necessary today, that a combat veteran had had enough and declared, "The threat of tyranny, today, is no less than at the turn of the century in 1900, in 1800, or in 1700!"

Below is the exchange:

Veteran: Sir, sir. While you’re standing up. I’ve sat here [inaudible] and I’d like to agree with the professor. Everyone standing in this room right now, especially the veterans in the room right now, know, that we are all Americans. The problem with this country right now is it’s us and it’s f***ing them. We need to stop this crap.

Now, the thing I would like you to answer, sir. And I did go to war for this country. Whether it was for everyone in here’s ability to have oil and gas in their cars, or the banks, or whatever. I went to war for my country.

And I went to war for your ability to have the First Amendment, to say what you stood up there and said today, to write what you want to write in your newspaper, and have whatever opinion you want to have. You can practice whatever religious freedoms you want. I would like you to answer the question, since you just said that one of the rights that I went to war over to defend, that is inalienable, to every American citizen. If this discussion was going on, about your First Amendment rights, would you still have the same opinion that we don’t need that any more either.

Goodman: You didn’t hear my answer….that’s not what I said…I said it doesn’t matter what their reasons are, what matters is whether or not it’s relevant today.

Audience member: It’s an eternal truth, an eternal truth….

Goodman: When they consider any part of the Constitution, any law, they’re going to say, “what does it mean today?”

Audience: NO!

Veteran: The threat of tyranny, today, is no less than at the turn of the century in 1900, in 1800, or in 1700!

The passion on display in these types of meetings, is reminiscent to that of our founding fathers. It was an attack on the ability to defend one's self and freedom from tyranny with arms that sparked the War for Independence and it appears today's tyrants are ready to have another go at those of us who love freedom.

    How true, how true. Tyranny is as alive and well as terrorism. Tyranny in America has to be stopped or the last 200+ years of this country have been for nothing.

    The BIG picture right now is...Take away our Arms', the senator that has just made a recommendation to do away with term limits and let obama stay in office until 2020. He knows very well American don't want this, ..So what do we have to protect our self ? the National Guard comes in and arrest whom ever . AND here we are just like Libya, muslim take over and we are in bondage to slavery . obama rules and good-by to us and America.

    The big surprise that is coming for the liberal left is that the real core of conservative patriots in this country will proudly die defending what they believe in rather than submit to a life of tyranny. None of these left wingers have such a conviction. They all want to pontificate their agenda then run and hide behind their ivory towers while big brother does the dirty work. The left expects to win a debate that conservatives will concede to, tuck our tails between our legs and submit. Not going to happen. I honestly have no problem with all of them going about their business and living any way they choose. When they try to impose their views upon me and take my freedom away to serve their own agenda, game on. If any of them think they can stay above the fray when the fur flies, better think again. In for a penny, in for a pound.

  • Jacob Gaines

    God bless that soldier. He not only has proved himself in war, he also has the wit and intelligence to make someone of "higher education" look like a blithering idiot.

  • Patriot

    The way it is going in WDC and NY with the "progressives" we are all going to have to fight to keep our Constitution and our country and our freedom. I am a small person with no arsenal.....not one that could defend against the kind of firepower the nggr king has......but I will fight................and if I die doing it........I will have died free and not in an obysmal Fema Camp.

    I wonder what they would say if we pit their dismissal of the 2nd amendment versus their argument that abortion is allowed under our Constitution. Where in the Constitution does it say ANYTHING about abortion? Nowhere. Where in the Constitution does it grant rights to citizens to bear arms? The 2nd Amendment.
    Of course they will argue that the Supreme Court ruled in their favor on the abortion issue, to which we should counter - they also ruled on the 2nd amendment issue - in favor of citizenship ownership of guns.
    Sorry, liberals . . . you can't have it both ways.

  • Texas Mom

    Our military and vets may be the sleeping giant that the liberals finally awaken in their thirst for tyranny. Whose patriotism would you question in encounters like this?
    My dad, brother, brothers in law, husband and son have all served or are serving in our armed forces. Words cannot express my feelings when I see men like this one stand up for our freedom. They are defending all of us Americans, even the stupid ones who would throw away all of our freedoms along with their own. Too bad they have to waste their energies defending us against our own government and all its' minions.

      Mom, Great post, and yer right! Fact is we are at war, but no shots have been fired yet.
      But the liberturds,are pushin & pushin. I don't think they realize the giant they're wakin up.

  • pduffy

    The 2nd Amendment is the 'canary in the coal mine' of Liberty. When gun control comes, liberty is dead. Wherever the citizens of a country are not allowed to possess arms, they are subjects and not free men.

  • Euclid

    "The right to bear arms" is not limited to simple attack weapons. I am selling tacticle nuclear tipped howitzer rounds that can destroy the center of illegal power in the US. These are legal arms protected by the Second Amendment to our founding fathers Costitution.

    • Shawn A McClenahan

      Euclid, I believe the word you're looking for is "troll."

  • 820 REDHORSE

    My brother in arms ,was speakin to a panel of friggin IDIOTS! But, God bless him for the stand he took and he was 100% correct! A salute from one vet to another

  • Donald York

    We need more people like this Veteran to get in these liberal gun grabbers face.

  • nofreebies4u

    It is really disturbing that liberals like the one in this video have the arrogance to try to impose their will upon the rest of us. They feel that it is their right and duty to rule over us and maintain control over us because they alway know better. They are in for a very rude awakening when they have to face reality one day.

  • jesse

    Liberturds and Liberturdism - ideas so great that they must be forced upon us whether we like it or not

  • Ray Ake

    THAT'S telling the A$$hole's,,they want there right's but they don't want us to have our's,,WHO do the damned liberal's think they are ??

  • retiredmillwright

    Liberals brains don't engage right. They seem not to realize that tyrants always have to be fought if you are going to keep your freedoms. Freedom is not free, it is bought and paid for with someone's blood and sweat. Liberals are easy for tyrants to use as tools to enslave whole countries and today Obama is using tens of millions of these tools to install socialism in America.

    • Clint

      Always remember that Obama is not really the head of the snake, there are those behind the puppet.

  • Joe Davis

    There is no room for gun control in this country. We will never except any infringments on our rights to protection just as the local police doesent. No matter what the cost, we will fight to make this a prosperous America, so when you are trying to tear down our country, we will be there to stop you in your slimy tracks!

  • Drifanwulf

    Coming from a Liberal the question whether or not the Second Amendment is relevant today proves their agenda is to disarm law abiding citizens and render us defenseless.

    • 7papa7

      If the citizenry is disarmed then the Marxist, Socialists and Communists can take over without any fight. The second amendment is also to stop a tyrannical government. The left doesn't know what "shall NOT be infringed upon" means unless it is the right to murder your unborn children. The 2d amendment says that the government can NOT stop us from our guns, our magazines or any other weapon or accessory.

  • scgator2001

    Liberals, Obama included, are clueless or lying to hide their agenda.

    • Patriot

      They are lying. Obama is not "clueless".....he intends to do exactly what he is doing.....destroy this country...........take us down to a 3rd world country................HELP the taliban and al qaeda..........even tho' his mouth talks a different song. He is a FASCIST. He was raised by a Marxist queen and lead by Ayers and those thugs who only want to see Americans on their knees.

    • 820 REDHORSE

      Absolute truth!
