Time to control your boys before shit hits the fan. (Part 1)

It is no secret that I hold serious contempt for  the 3% crowd. From what I have personally seen, most of them are one step removed from Internet Ninjas and those kids that dress all tactical to play with airsofts. No, I don’t know how the movement started or who did it and I couldn’t care less but one thing is certain: the founders of this thing will be facing a shit storm soon enough if they don’t have their kiddies tone down the rhetoric.

I know I am not the only one sick of the NO COMPROMISE hollering and then the sudden silence when one request proof their achievements. We are tired of the innuendos, accusations and falsehoods spread all over the interwebs just because or for whatever idiotic reasons they have to insult and belittle those who are actually are doing something but does not meet their stringent criteria of No Compromise, a criteria that besides impossible to realize, they designed from the comfort of their couches while typing warrior-like posts in their favorite forums.

All that is fine and dandy. You have the right to mentally masturbate as much as you want and live in your life of fantasy telling everybody how you will slay the enemies of the country with the latest and coolest M4gery with all kinds of cute tactical gear attached to the Picatinny rails and one much different is when you cross the threshold and actually threaten the people on your side but who do not happen to share your inflated and imaginary views on how things should be done.

I happen to be the target of a local ThreePer who believes I am the reincarnation of Uncle Joe Stalin. This particular Idjit and I have butted heads in a private forum I administer because I have dared to: 1) Challenge his bullshit and 2) Remove posts that are not in concordance with the forum mission statement (and that you must agree to belong) but he chooses to ignore and 3) Open hostility against any Law Enforcement personnel which is dumb when you realize that about one third of the membership is LEO from local, state and federal levels .  Mr. Idjit is “preparing” for the “upcoming civil war” and I am guessing he is doing his sick version of Santa’s List and checking who is a patriot and who is not under his nutjobbery standards.

So far we have managed to avoid real life confrontations when we are at the range. Mostly I ignore the shit out of him, but the tension is palpable. If you look hard enough you might see a dribble of foam in the corner of his mouth whenever i pass by. I know that he has been issuing less than nice comments about me at the after matches reunions some shooters have at the local beers & wings establishment and some of the fellow shooters have informed me so. It was not the comments themselves (I’ve been called asshole once or twice before and sometimes with reason) but the level of hate and vitriol spewed has been such that people have felt the need to warn me. Initially I did not give too much care about that, but when I started to receive this messages, my view changed a tad:

you need to be removed. you are nothing more than a petty tyrant that uses his position to silence and obstruct opposition. when you go, take rob with you. understand that i will be sending a like message to him. love and kisses.

Another charming message went:

your days are numbered. do you not understand that the men i establish bonds with at (local eatery), (another local eatery) , and (another local eatery) far exceed your influence? i suspect that has a lot to do with it. you have no influence except for your petty tyranny. that and you being a socialist and all. you are a dry twig after the summer. winter will see you fall from the tree

And a third example:

again, your days are numbered. slowly but surely, day by day, deleted posts by deleted post, you dig your own grave. i have but one mission in life now, and that it to see you relieved. you are nothing more than a petty tyrant. *spit*

I am not worrying too much, but then again I am not turning my back when this asshole is around. We have already lost members because of this guy’s attitude and absurd verbal bellicosity. As one other threatened member has said “for all the talk about revolution, this is probably the kind of guy that will dig a deep hole and hide when the bullets start coming his way.”

So what is it to you? You are probably saying: “Dude this is your particular and very local problem. One crazy dude.” The problem is I am seeing more and more of the same blundering BS posted by other 3Pers in forums and blogs across our patch and in every state of the Union. The formula is usually I Hate LEOs-I Hate NRA-I Hate .Gov-I Hate You For Disagreeing with Me. They are visitors of certain No Compromise blogs and brand as traitor anyone who does not agree 1,000% with them. They see those who have a different view as rats against their version of the Cause for Freedom and I wouldn’t be surprised if some are having their own little Robespierre plans on how to deal with us.

The only problem is, we ain’t SanFran Hippies easily cowered by their attitude. Do not wish war, fire and brimstone upon us, you may not like our response.

  1. ….please don’t make generalizations when you’re talking about Airsoft players. A large number of our “kids” here in the North Texas airsoft community are ex or reserve military (and yes, some are still kids) and the vast majority of our younger players are more mature than than most adults I know. Not to mention that through the same community, I’ve made great connections and wonderful friends. There’s always a temptation to makes jokes about kids playing with toy guns, but if you look deeper than the backyard players you’ll find a great group of people.

  2. Seems to me there is a time honored way to handle situations like these within “units”. The leader speaks his piece and if that doesn’t settle things down the antagonists can step up and act like MEN, go behind the woodshed and settle things. Personally, I have no time for “my vagina hurts” cause johnny was mean to me crappola. I will be posting the same response on the other side of this hairball.

  3. I don’t know what to say about the postings by folks that represent themselves as 3Pers. It would be fair to say that the guy that started it (Mike V) and many of the thoughtful posts regarding Civil War would agree with your sentiments.

    I’m ashamed that another shooter and person that is supposedly concerned with personal freedom and rights would give you such a hard time. It is probably more correct to surmise that he is an asshat, a provocateur or just generally ill mannered but to see him as a representative of the movement is unfortunate.

    Mike’s fundamental concern is that no more firearms restrictions be put forth as they ultimately will lead to the scenes that you have included in your above post. I think we all understand that. Mike is also fairly inclusive of differing political beliefs but has no patience for the ‘going off half cocked’ mentality as well as any form of collectivist nonsense so often embodied by the racist types.

    To be honest you both sound like pretty level headed men that would probably find more common ground than you would think.

    All the Best,

    Cory

  4. “Do not wish war, fire and brimstone upon us, you may not like our response.” That’s very close to the ending of the 3% statement. So you aren’t so different, are you? And consider the facts facing us right now – if the Constitution is scrapped for our great leader’s socialist/Marxist goals, and the republic is truly threatened, will you become part of the 3%, or will you lay down your arms and capitulate?

    The Declaration itself says, “…That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.” Do you foresee ANY circumstance where it might become necessary to accomplish this in the same manner as our founders?

    Just asking… Do not paint the entire 3% crowd with one angry extremist. And we ARE everywhere!
