This is absolutely how you do it. And in practical application - it started with escapist fiction. Comics and Sci Fi, gaming, computer gaming, finally mainstream cinema... and it is almost all driven by LGBT+ activism. All of the Identity Politics in ALL of these groups was introduced by the LGBT community agitating for "representation" - and BLM and AntiFA and actually, the Church of Satan, are all part of this too.

But really it is *socialists* who infiltrated the LGBT community and then aimed them at these groups. They got the LGBT community to become activists promoting their interests, then they did the same thing with PoC, feminism, Atheism.


Here is when you know your niche tribe is in trouble - when suddenly people aren't "A SciFi fan, or a FRP fan, or a Computer Fan, or a Comics fan..."


But instead, they are a "LGBT TG POC Comics books fan..." When they start adding modifiers in front of their fandom - they've arrived, and soon you'll be getting called a gatekeeper and driven out of the community you nurtured in obscurity for 4 decades.

And once they get a big enough presence and enough high level control in each community, they start directing everyone there - who understands the penalty for non-compliance is exile from this community that is core to their identity - toward specific targets.


That is another problem with the Internet - It used to be that the disenfranchised weirdos didn't have a united voice, where the popular and accepted were all united, each on a local level.


The Internet made the outcasts and misfits realize they were legion - and that even if they thought they were alone in their local community - no, there was a whole ARMY of people who liked dressing up as My Little Pony and buggering one another. And that gave them power and a voice.

And it turns out, that is a terrible thing.

We are losing the culture war, and we will all pay for it one way or

another.  Unfortunately I don't know how to fight a culture war. 

I'm a computer nerd.  I've never been very popular, nor have I ever

been very good at convincing others to adopt my ideas or opinions of

things.


The way you fight a culture war is as follows:

You pick a bunch of strategic groups an infiltrate them. I am not talking about big groups such as "Military" or "Moviemaking", but small groups such as "The Local Chess Club". Then, you use those groups for political dealings. "I will support your urbanism plan if you give us a handout for purchasing 200 chess boards."

At some point, the sum of the groups you control is so big that you may start taking bids. You support the party that gives you more of what you want.

The trick is to use, in the begining, groups that are not recognizeable as political entities. Everybody knows chess is apolitic, right? So it is easy to move into a Chess club and overtake it because there won't be resistence. They are not politic so they won't care much if somebody shows up with a don't thread on me shirt. This allows you to bring more of your friends until the Club belongs to you.

Except you should try not to be very obvious until it is too late for the normal Chess club members to react.

The issue in these cases is having friends to begin with, so you can start with the infiltration. You can also create your own group from scratch if need be but that is more work and you still needs friends on board with the plan.

Once you are big enough you are an economic power on your own. There is people who depends on you. Maybe they need your club to exist because you are the only place in the area where they can play Chess. Maybe you are the main consumer of Chess pieces in the State, so boardgame factories depend on you to survive and will defend you to the death. This is the endgame point because in that moment you have a whole lot of people fighting for your political goals and funding your political goals even if they don't have any special interest in them.

I am in local politics, and THIS is the handbook.

Now what you have to do is find people enough, with free time enough, to do it. There is a reason why the left is always poaching for students: they have a lot of energy and a lot of spare time, so they provide a lot of bang for the buck if you manage to recruit one.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: anti-gun people deserve to be shot.

Garage clean/purge continues.

Ran across a sardine can of 7.62x39 stripper clips buried under a box of computer books ( no wonder i didnt see it there ).  Nice to find ammo instead of expend it...

 

Books get donated of course.

I've been thinking lately about AR pistols and why don't I have one. What are your thoughts on pistol braces? Are they here to stay, or is it only a matter of time before they're bumpstock'd (which I think is actually in limbo right now, at least in part of the country. Didn't some lower court strike it down?)?

By the way, since I couldn't find one in my area for rental, I finally just bought an old worn out P-01 on the cheap. In case anyone was dying to know the answer to my question about its width, the frame is just over 1 1/16". Like maybe 1 3/32. I don't have calipers so I have to eyeball it with measuring tape. So: just slightly thicker than a G19's dust cover, but a little thinner than the rest of the G19 frame. And I was right, that 1.4" metric comes from the total width including the slide lock or decocker.

I think a *true* brace that is 'pinned' ( solid piece with straps, like a shockwave blade  ) will stay.   Anything adjustable will be gone in the near future.

Of course you can always register as a SBR and avoid the legal concerns. i see that continuing to be an option for adjustable braces, and not a true ban 'call it a SBR, pay us $ and you can keep it '.

Bleh. I prefer to at least pretend to myself that the government doesn't have a list of what I own.

Yes, its pretending. Unless you buy 100% from private sales with cash, including ammo and any accessories, they know.

 

I may have told this story before:

Years ago i was in a guy's office and he got a call from the FBI.  There was a attempted assassination of a senator or something. It was an odd sized caliber that they used, and the FBI tracked down everyone in the entire country that bought parts for that caliber. He had bought a barrel upwards of 10 years before via mail order.  "where is your gun and where were you"...   Scary stuff actually.

That is scary and also not at all surprising. So I try to limit my purchases to a) things that are super common, and b) bought in person and with cash. In my state I can do FFL transfers without a NICS check because I have a carry permit. Of course, they know I own *something* because I'm in the permit database, but hopefully they don't know exactly what or how many. But then there's the back-door registry that the ATF will collect all of the transfer papers if my FFL ever goes out of business, so I do my part to keep them financed.


You can tell me it's all theater. I know this, but it still makes me feel like I'm at least making it a little hard on them.

Unfortunately most of what i have was purchased from a local shop where the owner got ill unexpectedly, and closed up shop about 10 years ago.  So all his records were absorbed by the ATF. If i had known they were doing that, i might have chose a different route and gone to the yearly shows instead.  Not that i had anything to 'hide' but its none of their damned business really.

Another store i used for a few transactions, was shut down for selling out the back door so their records got sized... 

Sure they dont know *what* i have today due to sales since then, but they know what i *did* have.. So for me its a wash.
