FlyoverPress: Real Reason they Arrested Raub: Strip Him of His Right to Bear Arms… (“Veterans, the handwriting is on the wall”)
Liberty Knows No Compromise
That is exactly how Stalin did it. If somebody was in his way, he just had them declared “insane” and disposed of them.
The best thing we (and especially we veterans) can do is get to these guys before they get into the VA system. All initial “counselor” interviews will ask them about guns. They need to know that it is not immoral to lie to any government sumbitch for exactly the same reason it is not immoral to lie to a common street thug who puts a gun to your head and demands your money or your life.
Not only does someone need to get ahold of the Army’s document, we need to figure out how to help this poor bastard. — jtl, 419

Attention U.S. Military: You are Being Demonized. This is an Extremely Important Article … It’s now becoming overt. The meme emanating rapidly from the mainstream media is that the U.S. military is a threat to the nation! It sounds very 1984 and backwards, but what isn’t these days. What really captured my attention is a very clever and dangerous article published by Reuters titled “U.S. Army battling racists within its own ranks.” It sounds benign enough at first and as you continue to read it all seems pretty reasonable. Who wants crazy racists running around the armed forces? Nobody. That said, there is a tone throughout that clearly attempts to make the sheeple public suspicious about returning veterans, which is bothersome in its own right considering these young men and women are being sacrificed daily by the elite power structure that would never dip their dainty little toes anywhere near any action. – libertyblitzkrieg.com
Dominant Social Theme: Champions of free speech, anti-tax promotions and the right to keep and bear arms are closet white supremacist Neo-Nazis. Watch out!
Free-Market Analysis: The real reason why they arrested former US Marine Brandon Raub and then confined him to a psychiatric ward is now emerging.
It may be part of a deliberate Pentagon policy to declare people who are vets and concerned about eroding freedoms – as Raub obviously was – to be emotionally disturbed and thus ineligible to carry or use weapons.
It seems to have something to do with a new demonization of US military personnel, as Michael Krieger over at libertyblitzkrieg.com suggests.
Krieger brilliantly dissects a recent Reuters article, and has the insight to focus on a brazen statement right in the middle of the article. (It’s called “burying the lead.”) Anyway, here’s how Krieger presents it:
… the article didn’t really get me concerned until the section where they discuss a presentation that the U.S. Army itself is apparently showing to its own troops. Reuters watched this presentation and they write:
“The standard hateful message has not been replaced, just packaged differently with issues like freedom of speech, anti-gun control themes, tax reform and oppression,” the presentation says, noting that recruitment may be difficult to detect, occurring quietly “in bars and break areas” on bases.
Wow. Do you folks see what this is saying? They aren’t talking about racism anymore. They are essentially saying that people that defend freedom of speech and the right to bear arms are the new “white supremacists!” They really expect people to be stupid enough to fall for this. This is incredible. A U.S. Army presentation is apparently saying that military members who believe in the Bill of Rights are the enemy, despite the fact that they have sworn an oath to protect that very document.
You see? Raub is incarcerated in a mental facility to assess his level of loony racism. Why is he considered a racist threat? Because he has written on “issues like freedom of speech, anti-gun control themes, tax reform and oppression.”
Never has the novel Catch 22 been more applicable than these days! The level of sophistry in which the Pentagon indulges is reaching Tower of Babel proportions. On another level, as analyzers of the dominant social themes of the elite, we have to admit a grudging respect for this sort of positioning.
Say you are worried about 500,000 vets returning from foreign wars having had a bellyful of violence and the hypocrisy that goes with it. You are worried about these young men and women because you are trying to build world government and American exceptionalism stands in your way.
America needs to be pacified. But though you’ve tried over and over again, America’s frontier “gun culture” has resisted all attempts to overthrow it. And now all these young trained killers, male and female, are returning home and beginning to read the read Internet.
Soon they’ve got it figured out. The whole thing was phony! They’ve seen it first-hand, after all. They couldn’t put their finger on it, but now in retrospect it becomes clear … There never really was a “war on terror.” The entire rhetorical exercise was aimed at … them – and their families.
At this point a number of soldiers go on drugs – anti-depressants, etc. These are horrible drugs that cause massive levels of suicide because it is easy to squeeze the trigger when you are detached from reality.
But not enough are dying fast enough? The power elite that apparently wants to take over the world is perhaps concerned that these vets form an impediment to their plans.
They’ve been through it before, after all. One reason global governance moved so slowly in the 20th century was because of the “greatest generation.” They couldn’t do anything too overt. Hell, they probably would have had considerable backlash with a name like “Homeland Security.”
Everything was sold very softly in the 20th century. But in the 21st, the proverbial gloves have come off. The elites are not waiting anymore. Panicked by the Internet and what it has revealed about the globalist conspiracy, they’re rushing ahead full-speed.
We would argue that it is still too soon. The Internet Reformation has forced their collective hand. And as a result, their actions are more and more transparent. If you pay attention, you can see the mechanism at work.
So … what do you do with a fellow like Raub? First, you conflate racism with constitutional- and liberty-oriented rhetoric. Once you’ve made the connection, you can arrest him and place him under observation.
Nobody can quite figure out why Raub was arrested (as the sentiments he voiced are posted every day on the ‘Net) but if our analysis is correct, Raub was picked up at least in part for exhibiting racist tendencies. He’ll be let go, in our estimation, but not before he’s labeled as emotionally disturbed and receives a weapons ban.
Isn’t that the ultimate aim of this exercise? Conflate racism with patriotism, arrest those who make freedom-loving statements, cart them off to the loony bin and strip of them of their right to bear arms. (Of course, over time we’re well aware the policies will move beyond mere gun-stripping. But, hey, you’ve got to start somewhere.)
It’s self-selecting authoritarianism once you’ve established the racism-liberty link.
Conclusion: Somebody should try to get the document the US Army is supposedly showing for training purposes
