The Spirit of Freedom

Folks, this is the English Language Forum .

On January 19, law abiding citizens in the U.S. went to demonstrate for their 2nd Amendment

rights all over the country. The MSM has pretty much ignored the events or willfully played

down the numbers of participants.

Here's a link to one of the many videos on youtube showing the rally at the State House in

Boston, MA

Here is a transcript of the speech by the naturalized Chinese citizen in the above video

The past Monday I decided to visit the Minuteman Park in Lexington and pay tribute to Captain John Parker and his fellow minutemen. A thought came to my mind, that the founding fathers of the United States and Chairman Mao had one thing in common: they all realized that guns are important political instruments. Their similarities, however, ended there:

Chairman Mao wrote: ‘Political power grows out of barrel of a gun’, and he dictated: ‘The party shall command the gun’. James Madison and his compatriots, however, believing that the power of the state is derived from the consent of the governed, ratified that ‘the right to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed’.

23 years ago, I was a college freshman exercising my freedom of speech and assembly in Tian’anmen Square, much like we are doing here today. We grew frustrated by the restriction of personal freedoms and the corrupted Chinese government, and we thought peaceful protest would make the country better. Our young passion and patriotism was crushed by hails of full metal jackets out of AK47’s. (Some AK purists here would argue they were really type 56’s). We could not fight back, because we did not have an inch of iron in our hands, to borrow a Chinese expression: we were unarmed.

Gun owners like us often say: the Second Amendment is the protector against a tyrannical government. Some may argument that a man with a rifle is no match to the military machines of today, so such beliefs are no longer relevant. However, 20 million peaceful Beijing citizens in 1989, sure wished that they had a few million rifles in their hands!

Freedom is not free. Liberty has costs. We recognize that in this free society, criminals or mentally deranged could get weapons and murder the innocents. The answer, however, is not to disarm the law abiding citizens. Not only criminals and the deranged will violate the laws anyway, but more importantly, when a government turns criminal, when a government turns deranged, the body count will not be five, ten or twenty, but hundreds, like in Tian’anmen Square, or millions, counted in the 90-year history of the Chinese Communist Party.

Our constitutional republic may look fuzzy and loving today (if you think so, I’ve got a TSA agent you should meet), but keep in mind that absolute power corrupts absolutely! And when a government has monopoly on guns, it has absolute power!

Do you know that the Chinese Constitution guarantees almost all the nice things we have here? It is written that Chinese citizens enjoy freedom of speech and religion, they have human and property rights, and that such rights cannot be taken away without due process of the law. And do you know what? Chinese people do not have the right to keep and bear arms. I assure you all those nice guarantees, are not worth the paper they are printed on, because when the government has all the guns, they have all the rights.

I was not born a citizen of the United States, I was naturalized in 2007. In 2008, I became a proud gun owner. To me, a rifle is not for sporting or hunting, it is an instrument of freedom. It guarantees that I cannot be coerced, that I have free will, and that I am a free man.

Now suppose the 20 million Beijing citizens had had a few million rifles, how many rounds should they have been ALLOWED to load into their magazines? 10? 7? How about 3?

Never, never, never give up the fight, my friends. It may be a small step that you give up your rifle, or a 30-round magazine, but it will be a giant leap in the destruction of this great republic.

In closing I will quote the words of Captain John Parker: "Stand your ground. Don't fire unless fired upon. But if they want to have a war, let it begin here."

Nutnfancy ist stinksauer, gut so! United we stand!

So muss auch unser Slogan hier in Deutschland leuten für 2013/2014 und darüber hinaus, egal ob als Bogenschütze,Sportschütze,Paintballer oder Jäger.

Richtig! Wir alle wären so eine Macht, wenn wir nur alle an einem Strang ziehen würden...

Here is a transcript of the speech by the naturalized Chinese citizen in the above video [...]

Not only criminals and the deranged will violate the laws anyway, but more importantly, when a government turns criminal, when a government turns deranged, the body count will not be five, ten or twenty, but hundreds, like in Tian’anmen Square, or millions, counted in the 90-year history of the Chinese Communist Party.

Or millions like in Communist Russia, where the gun laws sucked. Or millions like in Nazi Germany, where the Jews had to turn in their weapons before they were deported and killed. And the horrible list goes on. Governments, which turned deranged and killed their own people or people under their control in the 20th century:

Google "democide"!

This is so important but the mainstream media do not inform us about democide. This shows me, what to think about mainstream media.

Here in Germany, democide happened four times* in the last 165 years! We should have learned something from it, but it seems most people have not. And unfortunately, disinformation and propaganda are still running in high gear.

* 1. Failed revolution in 1848; 2. WW I; 3. WW II; 4. GDR regime.
