The destructive and immoral policies of the radical left are enforced on American culture through a systematic abuse of language.
George Orwell understood that those who control language control culture. In his brilliant novel about the nightmare of modern totalitarian regimes, Nineteen Eighty-Four, Newspeak is the language of Big Brother and its vast propaganda machine through which citizen are turned into slaves:
War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.
When lies become truth, civil society is exterminated.
The radical left in America—Barack Hussein Obama’s Democrat party—takes its cues from the soulless, fascist regime of Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four.
The phrase gun violence is the left’s latest mission and assault against language. By joining the word gun to the word violence, all guns and all gun owners are demonized.
Of course, the philosophical root of this obsession with guns is the radical left’s rejection of good and evil. To the left—wedded to Marxist materialism and amoral moral equivalence—it becomes necessary to assign inanimate objects a certain amount of free will.
Thus, guns are bad—unless in the hands of the state.
It’s the same totalitarian philosophy that animates Nanny Bloomberg to ban 16 oz. sodas and table salt. Only the state should have the power to dispense such dangerous food groups.
We can just imagine Haman and his liberal Jewish supporters—today these Jews sing the praises of all the President’s Jew-haters, Hagel being the most recent of a long line—fulminating self-righteously against “sword violence.”
We who thrive on common sense, we who believe in the Constitution, who support limited government, and we who believe in good and evil, must reclaim language.
Gun violence should be rebranded as… gun goodness.
Or something like that. I know, it needs work

Stories in which guns are used to protect and preserve innocent lives, stories which happen every single day in America, must be reported as widely as possible by those of us who care about liberty.

One suspect is dead after a quick-thinking 21-year-old man sprang into action and grabbed his father’s gun to fend off three armed intruders and protect his parents in Texas.
The Houston-area young man and his parents were at home baking a cake Thursday night when there was a knock on the door, KHOU-TV reported.
“I see a young boy and I think it is a friend of my son so I open it a little bit,” the father, who didn’t want to show his face or give his name on camera, told KHOU. “These guys push and out comes two more, they push me on the ground.”
With the father down, the suspects went after the mother, telling her to get on the ground. She ran to her bedroom, where her son was already grabbing the gun from under the bed.
“I just hear a couple of times, boom, boom, boom,” the father said.
The son opened fire and struck one of the suspects, who died in one of the back bedrooms. The other two fled the scene, but deputies responding to the call picked up two men matching their description and took them in for questioning.
The entire attack lasted less than a minute, the family said. No charges are expected to be filed against the son, but they’re not taking any joy in the outcome.
“One young life is lost,” the father said.
