Tactical success of the Resistance will mean nothing if the people, who are the ultimate target of the Resistance’s political activity, do not support the goals of the Resistance. …[T]he general population must support the Resistance. Otherwise the efforts of the Resistance will ultimately be futile.
– Dr. Joseph P. Martino, Resistance to Tyranny
Let’s imagine, for sake of discussion, that a patriotic revolt against the Federal Leviathan takes shape. Given the necessity of gaining popular support, how might any resistance effort hope to achieve this when a 20th-Century-era race-hustling Marxist just got popularly elected? Does this not evince that we have a population that prefers slothful, micro-managed servitude to the “animating contest” of freedom and self-governance?
Not to mention the fact, as previously discussed, that the Liberal Establishment will go on an all-out demonization/propaganda campaign against any patriotic resistance, further ensuring that popular support remains wholly against the freedom fighters.
Two clips to illustrate the point:
Anyone paying attention knows how this story ends. The problem is, by virtue of relentless indoctrination combined with the importing of useful idiots by the millions from 3rd-world hellholes, the general populace isn’t paying a damn bit of attention. Or, if they are, they’re foaming at the mouths thinking they’ll be getting a piece of the action by playing sycophant to the Liberal Establishment.
How might a resistance movement ever hope to win over such severely brainwashed, hopelessly idiotic, or outright evil people? I tend to agree with AWD that attempting to reason with libtards is an exercise in futility. So what then? Is Dr. Martino’s contention that any resistance must have the support of the population behind it incorrect? If not, then is resistance futile? Or might there be lessons to be learned from the original American Revolution (loyalists, Hessians, etc.)? Etc.
Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say “what should be the reward of such sacrifices?” Bid us and our posterity bow the knee, supplicate the friendship and plough, and sow, and reap, to glut the avarice of the men who have let loose on us the dogs of war to riot in our blood and hunt us from the face of the earth? If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom — go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!
– Samuel Adams, speech in Philadelphia, August 1, 1776
