Celts, Ogham, Tarka the Otter, Jordan Peterson, Dark Night of the Soul

 

 

 

 

 

 

This book, which appears for the first time on the Internet at sacred-texts.com, is one of the best scholarly treatments of the ancient Celtic religion. Written early in the 20th Century, Religion of the Ancient Celts includes extensive treatment of that perennially fascinating subject, the Druids.

There is very little documentary evidence to go on. In particular, we have no actual sacred texts of the ancient Celts, as their texts were transmitted orally only to initiates, and disappeared forever when the last Druid died. Christianity became the dominant religion in the Celtic area before the oral traditions could become written down, unlike the Vedas in India. Ancient Celtic religious beliefs must therefore be inferred from second-hand classical accounts, hints from Celtic mythology, legend and folklore, as well as archaeological and comparative anthropological evidence. MacCulloch marshals this body of evidence, extensively footnoted, so that an authoritative and clear view of ancient Celtic religion emerges.

MacCullough details the Celtic belief in reincarnation and a spectral otherworld; documents the enormous pantheon of now-obscure gods and goddesses, including many local deities; and describes totemistic and animistic beliefs. In addition, MacCulloch does not flinch (nor sensationalize) when describing the darker side of Celtic practices, including the famous ‘Burning Man’ human sacrifices, cannibalism and exogamous incest.

With so much spurious, flawed and poorly cited information floating around on the Internet about Celtic beliefs, it is important to review what is actually known about this subject. Hopefully putting this book online will provide some balance.

Ogham Translator, Transliterator, Transcriber — what’s the difference?

Ogham is not a language, but an alphabet. Much like the English language uses the Latin alphabet, the ancient Irish spoke Primitive Irish and used the Ogham alphabet.

A translator translates from one language to another, whereas a transliterator or transcriber converts letters from one alphabet to the corresponding letters of another alphabet.

This tool simply converts Latin characters (eg. ABC) to Ogham symbols (eg. ᚐᚁᚉ) – this is called transliteration. This tool does not translate from English to Primitive Irish and there is no such translator in existence.

If you are looking for examples of the Primitive Irish language as used with Ogham, please see the Wiki article Ogham inscriptions.

  • Any wood carvings have of course long vanished: the Celtic runes are known principally from inscriptions cut on the edges of rough standing gravestones. These are found primarily in west Ireland, but they have also been found in Wales, Cornwall, western Scotland, the Isle of Man, and the Shetland Islands.
  • The Irish had no other written alphabet until Christian missionaries introduced Latin (though runes may have also been used).
  • Ogham ceased to be used after the first few centuries of the Christian era, as the use of inscription languages (like runes and ogham) was reviled as a pagan practice.

The Ogham script recorded the earliest Old Irish texts dating between the 3rd and the 6th century CE. Ogham inscriptions are found exclusively in Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. Mostly they are genealogical inscriptions in the form of “X son of Y” on corners of large stone slabs. After the 6th century CE, Old Irish was written with the Roman alphabet, and Ogham disappeared from general but the knowledge must have been preserved in some form because our knowledge of Ogham comes from the chapter Auraicept na n-Éces in the 15th-century work The Book of Ballymote (Leabhar Bhaile an Mhóta), which also contains geneologies, mythologies, and histories of Ireland.

Various opinions exist on the exact origin of ogham. Some claim that it stemmed from a cryptic way of writing runes, some say that it was inspired from the Roman alphabet, and yet others hold that it was independently invented.

The Ogham letters are divided into four groups, each containing five letters. This yields a total of 20 Ogham letters.

When inscribed on stones, Ogham is written vertically from bottom to top. The following chart lists all Ogham letters in their vertical forms, along with their Old Irish names and meanings.

Wales has the greatest number of Ogham stones of any region outside of Ireland (35 stones with definite Ogham inscriptions), but as can be seen from the map below, they are unevenly distributed, with large numbers in the south-west and the south-east, and only a handful in the north :

Ogham inscriptions in Ireland, Wales, and Scotland

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

HW was also a great admirer of The Story of a Red Deer by Sir John Fortescue, younger brother of the Earl Fortescue, whose family seat was nearby at Castle Hill, in the tiny hamlet of Filleigh, North Devon, on the southern edge of Exmoor. In early 1925 HW asked Walter de la Mare if he would approach Sir John on his behalf to ask if he would be willing to write an introduction to Tarka. This approach proving successful, in due course HW sent off a typescript copy of his book to Sir John.

A letter from Sir John (from Windsor Castle, where he was librarian) dated 4 May 1925 (two days before HW’s marriage to Loetitia Hibbert – thus HW probably received it on the morning of his wedding, giving him much needed confidence) states:

I return your story . . . I read it once & liked it well; twice & liked it better. I am willing to write a little introduction for you . . . but I think the book striking enough to stand without need of any such prop. You have taught me more about otters than I ever dreamed of, & of many other creatures besides otters . . .

Sir John does suggest HW avoids ‘outlandish words’ and gives a couple of examples (‘autochthonic’ being one!). Sir John was currently writing a multi-volume History of the British Army and his work as Royal Librarian was quite arduous. One letter refers to ‘editing George III’s papers, & there are tens of thousands of them’. Another has a ‘PS’ written across a corner:

I reckon that my history has brought me in ¾d a line gross. I could never make my living with my pen – you can. [Permission to quote from Sir John’s letters was given by the Fortescue Estate at the time of my HW biography.]

On return from the honeymoon trip to the battlefields HW was busy honing and refining his story. The file of business letters shows that he was also looking for the best publishing deal possible, once again taking this on himself instead of leaving it to his agent, Andrew Dakers. I have already explained the problems that arose with Collins (see The Pathway entry), his original publishers. By September 1925 HW had placed this new book with Selwyn & Blount, but then Richard de la Mare (who had been best man at his wedding) warned him that the firm was in financial difficulties, and he withdrew. The book was finally placed with Putnam (who were also publishing The Old Stag).

HW now went over all the details again, walking the river banks, visiting the various places where the major scenes were set and undertaking a great deal of revision to his tale. He noted details such as the plants growing in various places, and made diagrams of terrain to aid him with descriptions. For instance he walked up to Cranmere Pool (a remote, wild, boggy area high on Dartmoor, only reached with some difficulty) accompanied by his wife’s younger brother (Robert, but known as ‘Bin’ as if ‘Robin’: he features in the future Chronicle novels as ‘Sam’).

https://www.henrywilliamson.co.uk/bibliography/a-lifes-work/tarka-the-otter#book

The Charles Tunnicliffe illustrated Tarka was published later that year with 23 full page woodcuts and 16 line drawings as ‘tail-pieces’: the illustrated The Old Stag appeared in February 1933; The Lone Swallows later that same year; and The Peregrine’s Saga in February 1934. (There were many reprints of these books, including, in 1945, a new uniform limited edition of 500 copies each.) Tunnicliffe had never before drawn falcons at close quarters. HW sent him off to a professional falconer in August 1933. The artist was totally overwhelmed by this bird, sending HW a letter headed with his first sketch of the head of a peregrine (see AW’s biography, Henry Williamson: Tarka and the Last Romantic, p. 150) which is so powerful that the bird seems alive.

The awesome Jordan Peterson. I do like listening to him.

 

Dr. Jordan B Peterson has been a dishwasher, gas jockey, bartender, short-order cook, beekeeper, oil derrick bit re-tipper, plywood mill labourer and railway line worker. He’s taught mythology to lawyers, doctors and businessmen, consulted for the UN Secretary General’s High Level Panel on Sustainable Development, helped his clinical clients manage depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety, and schizophrenia, served as an advisor to senior partners of major Canadian law firms, identified thousands of promising entrepreneurs on six different continents, and lectured extensively in North America and Europe.

He has flown a hammer-head roll in a carbon-fiber stunt plane, piloted a mahogany racing sailboat around Alcatraz Island, explored an Arizona meteorite crater with a group of astronauts, built a Native American Long-House on the upper floor of his Toronto home, and been inducted into the coastal Pacific Kwakwaka’wakw tribe.

With his students and colleagues, Dr. Peterson has published more than a hundred scientific papers, transforming the modern understanding of personality, and revolutionized the psychology of religion with his now-classic book, Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief. As a Harvard professor, he was nominated for the prestigious Levinson Teaching Prize, and is regarded by his current University of Toronto students as one of three truly life-changing teachers.

https://jordanbpeterson.com/

In 1999, Routledge published Peterson’s Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief. The book, which took Peterson 13 years to complete, describes a comprehensive theory for how we construct meaning, represented by the mythical process of the exploratory hero, and provides an interpretation of religious and mythical models of reality presented in a way that is compatible with modern scientific understanding of how the brain works. It synthesizes ideas drawn from narratives in mythology, religion, literature and philosophy, as well as research from neuropsychology, in “the classic, old-fashioned tradition of social science.”

Something we cannot see protects us from something we do not understand. The thing we cannot see is culture, in its intrapsychic or internal manifestation. The thing we do not understand is the chaos that gave rise to culture. If the structure of culture is disrupted, unwittingly, chaos returns. We will do anything — anything — to defend ourselves against that return.

—Jordan B. Peterson, 1998 (Descensus ad Inferos)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jordan_Peterson

On Quora, Jordan Peterson was asked this question:

“What are the most valuable things everyone should know?”

Instead of answering in a long essay, he wrote 40 maxims that I’ve presented below.

Before you read, keep in mind that these maxims are not your ordinary list of self-help tips.

They are simple. They are short. But they contain within each of them decades of study and thought.

Jordan Peterson said in his video entitled 45 minutes on a single paragraph of Nietzsche’s Beyond Good & Evil:

http://highexistence.com/jordan-peterson-rules-living/

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Both these chapters have contributed to the reputation of St. John of the Cross as a consummate spiritual master. And this not only for the objective value of his observations, but because, even in spite of himself, he betrays the sublimity of his own mystical experiences. Once more, too, we may admire the crystalline transparency of his teaching and the precision of the phrases in which he clothes it. To judge by his language alone, one might suppose at times that he is speaking of mathematical, rather than of spiritual operations.

http://www.ccel.org/ccel/john_cross/dark_night.iv.html

Nowhere else does the genius of St. John of the Cross for infusing philosophy into his mystical dissertations find such an outlet as here. Nowhere else, again, is he quite so appealingly human; for, though he is human even in his loftiest and sublimest passages, this intermingling of philosophy with mystical theology makes him seem particularly so. These treatises are a wonderful illustration of the theological truth that grace, far from destroying nature, ennobles and dignifies it, and of the agreement always found between the natural and the supernatural—between the principles of sound reason and the sublimest manifestations of Divine grace.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

I think that being kind, gentle, compassionate, courteous, considerate, tolerant towards others, is virtuous, ‘a good thing’.

On the other hand, what do you do if, through no fault of your own, some of those others are determined to injure you, kill those you love, drive you off your land ?

Frida Kahlo – Tree of Hope Remain Strong

Being generous and gentle towards them is not going to work. There comes a point when either you give up, surrender all responsibility for those you should defend and for your property and heritage, or else, whether you like it or not, you are obligated to act and defend yourself.

That means becoming more fierce, deadly, ruthless, clever, than the other guy, or else they win the conflict and that’s the end of  you and yours.

There’s nothing new about this dilemma, it’s been going on for thousands of years. It’s been addressed in the Bible, the ancient Chinese writings, by Buddha, by Shakespeare, all sorts of folk have had to face up to it.

You can try appeasement, like the Danegeld paid to the Viking marauders, but if you pay someone not to attack you it’s like being taxed by the Mafia, it’s never going to stop and will likely get worse.

To willingly pay taxes people have to be persuaded to consent on the grounds that it is in the interests of the common good, almost everyone benefits. That’d be things like a fire service, hospitals and ambulance services, roads, places to care for widows and orphans, that sort of thing. And police and soldiers.

It all makes sense at a certain scale. It’s obviously beneficial to pool the available funds of a community, whatever surplus there is above what folk rely upon to survive, and use those funds for things like say building a bridge across a dangerous ravine that’ll save travellers time and effort having to go many extra miles.

It’s easy to propose a convincing argument in such simple cases where the taxed community is of a certain size and they can persuaded of the general benefit. It gets tricky when it’s scaled up to hundreds of millions over vast areas governed by authorities of dubious virtue.

Even in a tiny region like Wales, with only around three million inhabitants, it’ll be difficult to persuade everyone to contribute some of their income towards the common good, and so some kind of threat is required to get people to pay taxes.

In the United Kingdom we’ve had at least a thousand years, you could argue far longer, to sort these kinds of dilemmas out and find optimal solutions. That’s why we have police and health and welfare services. So that we don’t have to step over rotting corpses in the streets, and women and children can – mostly – walk around without being robbed, raped, or abducted. There are plenty of parts of the world where the people, for a variety of reasons, are unable to organise this luxury.

I once met a market trader, in England, who took pride in the fact that he paid his taxes several years in advance, without any legal requirement to do so. He liked to see himself as someone who contributed more than most toward the general prosperity of all. He was a Tory voter.

    Let me get this straight. He brought in TEN guns over three days (where they in their cases or broken down and hidden?) into the Mandalay hotel (with all those cameras)and nobody saw anything? BS. I’ve been to Vegas three times and stayed at the Luxor (been through walkway with shops/restaurants from the Luxor to Mandalay)which is connected to the Mandalay. Too many things are going on at the same time. One thing happens, MSN talks about it for about a week then they are onto the next thing. What ever happened to hurricane Harvey? No ones talking about that anymore. People in Texas are talking about the FEMA camps and people disappearing never to be heard from again. I don’t like guns. It’s a personal choice but I support the 2nd amendment and this feels like another attempt at going after the right to bear arms and anyone who was in the military.

    Take a look at this exterior photo of the Mandaley Bay hotel provided by NBC news (see: http://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/images/user5/imageroot/2017/10/01/32nd%20floor_0.jpeg ). We see a broken window from two different rooms on the 32nd floor of the hotel.

    Now let’s take a virtual tour of a 550 square foot luxury room in the hotel (see: https://www.mandalaybay.com/en/hotel/resort-king.html ). We see there are two adjacent floor-to-ceiling windows. Referring back to the NBC photo, we can estimate there are at least 4 rooms in between the rooms with the broken windows.

    It asks the question, “Can a lone gunman run between two different rooms to shoot automatic fire at a crowd in the late evening (10:00pm est) hundreds of yards below the floor?” The second question even more incredulous is, “Why would he/she take such measures?”

    I don’t believe the “lone gunman” theory at all. We must look elsewhere for answers to this most horrific crime.

    The whole story about Stephen Paddock smells fishy. He’s 64 years of age, retired, apparently well-off and with an otherwise squeaky clean police record. He’s reclusive but many men aged 60+ years are loners. Could there be a possibility that Paddock was set up as a patsy or that his ID papers were stolen? Perhaps his girlfriend should be a person of interest for the police.

    The ISIS connection is very odd too and it’s possible that whoever was behind that ISIS tweet jumped the, er … gun, so to speak. People may well start to see ISIS for what it is now: something (by whom?) to whip the public into panicked hysteria with.

    5,000 years ago, the Yamnaya culture migrated into Europe from the Caspian steppe. In addition to innovations such as the wagon and dairy production, they brought a new language — Indo-European — that replaced most local languages the following millennia. But local cultures also influenced the new language, particularly in southern Scandinavia, where Neolithic farmers made lasting contributions to Indo-European vocabulary before their own language went extinct, new research shows.

    Most historical linguists agree that words such as ‘wheel’, ‘wagon’, ‘horse’, ‘sheep’, ‘cow’, ‘milk’ and ‘wool’ can be attributed to the Yamnaya people who migrated into Europe from the Caspian steppe 5,000 years ago. The nomadic and pastoral Yamnayans introduced their material culture to the local peoples through a new language known as Proto-Indo-European, from which most European languages descend.

    However, not all words in the European languages are of Proto-Indo-European origin, linguists say; there are words for flora and fauna, which must have been incorporated into Indo-European from local cultures. But where could such cultural exchange have taken place?

    According to a New York Times report…

    “Among the weapons authorities discovered were two rifles with scopes on tripods positioned in front of the two windows that had been broken out, a law enforcement official said.”

    “Tripods” or “bipods” – there’s a difference – probably unknown to the NYT.

    “Benjamin Paddock [perp’s father] was convicted of serial bank robbery in 1961, according to news reports from the time. After he escaped from prison, he was on the F.B.I.’s “Top 10” most wanted list for much of the 1970s”

    Good ol’ efficient FBI…

    Where he got some of the guns…

    Quote

    Christopher Sullivan, general manager of Guns & Guitars, a gun shop in Mesquite, Nev., said he was awakened at 4 a.m. Monday by a telephone call from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, which was tracing Mr. Paddock’s guns.

    Mr. Sullivan confirmed that Mr. Paddock had bought three guns at his shop — a handgun and two rifles — within the last year. All the purchases were legal and cleared routine federal screening, Mr. Sullivan said.

    “The man does not have a criminal history,” Mr. Sullivan said of Mr. Paddock.

    Mr. Sullivan, who said he had also been contacted by the F.B.I. and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, would not provide detailed descriptions of the guns. “We have cooperated with local and federal authorities,” he said.

    End Quote

    “Video of the shooting captured nine seconds of continuous rapid fire, followed by 37 seconds of silence from the weapon and panicked screaming from the crowd. Gunfire then erupted again in at least two more bursts, both shorter than the first.”

    I don’t understand how he wounded 500 people with that level of fire, even considering he was firing into a mass crowd. However one of the country singers said this:

    “‘This is not an exaggeration: This shooting was going on for at least 10 minutes,’ he added. ‘“It was nonstop.'”

    That might indicate a high body count – assuming the witness is anywhere close to accurate with his time count. If the shooter did have ten rifles, and assuming they were ARs (more likely than AKs) with thirty round magazines, and assuming he didn’t bother to reload until all ten magazines were empty, he could get off three hundred rounds in that time if he wasn’t actually aiming.

    However, his brother claims the shooter wasn’t a “gun nut” at all and had no training. There’s no indication – so far – that he had range time.

    “SWAT units swarmed the upper floors of the Mandalay Bay, closing in on the source of the shooting, a room on the 32nd floor where they found the gunman with “in excess of 10 rifles,” the sheriff said.”

    We only know of two rifles, which matches what he bought legally. Where did the other eight come from, if they existed?

    I think it’s unlikely at this point that he had fully automatic weapons, since they are not that easy to get if you don’t have significant criminal contacts and there’s no indication of thefts in the area (Las Vegas has a gun range where you can shoot full automatic weapons – it’s done every year at the DefCon computer security conference.)

    Clinton trying to derail the legislation now in Congress to take suppressors out of the NFA status is no surprise. Suppressors definitely would have made no difference, since suppressors just reduce a few decibels off the report of a weapon, they don’t “silence” them like in the movies.

    Adam Garrie at The Duran notes the parallels between this attack and one in Manila a few months ago:

    Las Vegas shooting has eerie parallels to a recent attack that the media won’t tell you about

    Investigators found 18 to 20 firearms in alleged gunman’s hotel room

    /quote/
    Investigators found 18 to 20 firearms, some fully automatic, … The weapons included AR-15-style and AK-47-style rifles as well as a large cache of ammunition, the official said.

    [The terrorist* possibly used] a trigger crank or a Bump Fire, which uses a combination of forward movement and recoil to engage the trigger rapidly. Such accessories are far cheaper and easier to obtain than an automatic weapon.

    Many local law-enforcement officials refuse to approve the transfer of machine guns … As a workaround, gun owners have obtained them through the use of trusts, legal entities that don’t require permission from sheriffs or police chiefs.

    The number of gun trusts jumped from 840 in 2000 to 40,700 in 2012, as they became more widely known and promoted, prompting ATF to update its regulations.
    /endquote/

    *Under Nevada law definition this incident was undoubtedly terrorism and the man a terrorist.

    Nevada is rather lax with any gun control.
    The man had no past crime record and was a reasonably well off retiree (acc. to WaPo). He likely would have past ATF scrutiny. He also had enough money to buy some old but expensive registered full automatics.

    I Agree. Why would one shooter with a good view of the event waste time moving to another location that looks farther than the confines of one hotel room when he was obviously in a hurry to kill as many people as possible? Why would a multi-millionaire, living with a partner, who enjoyed his poker and could afford it, do a thing like that? And in his 60’s with no previous? How did he get the weapons up the room?

    I find the brother’s behaviour in interview unconvincing. There is a lot of eye movement and jerking of the head, a bit reminiscent of the pathologist at Sandy Hook. There’s even a little joke – he ate burritos, as if pre-scripted. He told us he was in shock but he didn’t seem to act like he was. I think if my brother was dead after massacring so many people my head would be down in shame and in sorrow. I would avoid eye contact. I would mumble. I would be devastated.

    @Blacksmith21 That’s why we have people in pink NASA t-shirts running around from the JPL

    Let take another look at this message from Stratfor just hours before the Vegas happening

    Hello Comrades,
    Today I bring you Pizz*a from Stratfor. They say it takes a burning bush and a unicorn before we are merited a look at God but I’m not so sure about all that religious stuff. Instead I read Stratfor emails and think about the destiny of man.
    One day, I came across this email and thought, I bet those pizzagaters would find interest in this, so I copied it down and kept it in a small refrigerator by my desk, where I keep all my memes fresh.
    Would you believe, today, of all days, is the day, I feel motivated to share it with you? The main character of the story is a little creature called David, who lives inside the paper cabinets of Stratfor and only comes out once a week, when his parents, who pretty much run the united states, leave DMT rocks around the offices of Stratfor. We can’t all be lucky enough to have weekly DMT hunts, the rest of us just have to smoke our own pineal glands and hope for the best.
    So let’s take a look at this email and what the elves were really trying to tell us
    Re: Gray if you ever so much as criticize me again I will hurt you intentionally.
    I killed Osama Bin Ladin as the scapegoat from your dad’s childhood for his and mine bombing the Pentagon and WTC’s, believe me… I’m sure he has mentioned it to you and laughed
    Gray aspires to be more fascist like Branden Lee Allen wishes he was more Indian when he takes mushrooms but doesn’t know that they were from India who did that. Just, stupid motherfucking confused dead people. I would kick Gray’s ass too
    I happen to know Gray works with several CIA agents. haha. That’s funny.

    False Flag Validated: Shots Fired from 4th Floor, NOT 32nd (Video proof conclusive)
    Posted on October 2, 2017 by State of the Nation

    See the muzzle flashes in the video (right above the arrow) somewhat synchronized with the sounds of the rifle shots

    http://stateofthenation2012.com/?p=85244

    Seems to me that there might have been shots from the 4th AND 32nd, and the two smashed windows are on yet another floor ?
    Maybe it’s like Kiev, Ukraine, when there were several shooters brought in and then whipped out again whilst the blame was placed on others.
    Perhaps Paddock was used as a patsy.

    Why have we not heard more about the the girl saying that she saw a woman come to the front row of the concert saying that “we were all gonna die tonight” about 45 minutes before the shooting started?

    In the meantime, look what slipped onto the wire, including new and interesting facts such as the timing (exactly as I suspected) and the targets (exactly as I suspected). Perhaps the source of the attacks is also as I suspect.

    > HAVANA (AP) — Frightening attacks on U.S. personnel in Havana struck the heart of America’s spy network in Cuba, with

    —–> intelligence operatives < ------- NEW FACT among the first and most severely affected victims, The Associated Press has learned. It wasn't until U.S. spies, posted to the embassy under diplomatic cover, reported hearing bizarre sounds and experiencing even stranger physical effects that the United States realized something was wrong, individuals familiar with the situation said. While ------> the attacks started within days of President Donald Trump’s surprise election in November, < -------- NEW FACT the precise timeline remains unclear, including whether intelligence officers were the first victims hit or merely the first victims to report it. The U.S. has called the situation "ongoing." ---------- These New Facts(tm) are most interesting aren't they. We now return you to oh look a squirrel. TuPhat's picture TuPhat Big Twinkie Oct 2, 2017 9:36 PM He had something to with it. He was the patsy that died. The gunshots don't sound right. My M16 on full auto fired much faster than that. It sounded more like a chainsaw when on full auto than what was in the video. That sounded more like an M16 with a blank adapter firing blanks. Maybe someone who has been in the military more recently can verify what an M4 sounds like. Do they fire more slowly? My first reaction is that something stinks about this whole thing. chubbar HopefulCynical Oct 2, 2017 6:54 PM We are all assuming the guy did it, but he is dead and can't defend himself.

    What bothers me about the possibility of gun control here in America is disarming whites. Intentionally imposed mass immigration will make whites minorities, eventually.

    Now look at what happened in South Africa and Zimbabwe.

    Whites need their guns to defend themselves. Even more as time goes on.

    Also, it’s a big disincentive to breaking into someone’s home. Are they armed or not?

    All things considered, still against gun control here in the USA.

  25. ulvfugl says:

    Thanks G.

    Someone, or someones code, has been messing with this blog earlier today. Stopped me being able to post anything. I eventually cured it by deleting one particular YT video.
    That’s kinda interesting. When you are taking flak, means you are over the target. But WHICH target ? I dunno, hahaha.

    I’m also against stopping whites having guns in the USA.
    I changed my position on that a few years ago.
    Taking away the protection that weapons provide for the good guys, means that the good guys are left defenceless against the bad guys. The bad guys still get the weapons even if they are illegal.

    in Catalonia there are numerous videos of innocent people with real blood pouring out of real wounds.

    in Vegas there are numerous videos of a crowd of 20,000 being sprayed with high caliber machine gun fire, supposedly killing 59 and wounding over 500…

    and i’ve yet to see a corpse, or even a drop of blood.

    how do they do this?
