B.L.U.F. Train of thought comes off the rails in regards to “don’t call people names”
Having read “But HE said it first!” I had a long hard think on it. I do not like the way Hagar said some of the things she said but I do understand where she is coming from.
For years I was told to take the high road. If they go low, we side step and take the high road. Over the years this came to mean getting kicked in the balls over and over again. Playing by the rules when they were cheating just didn’t work.
One time I treated a useful idiot who wanted “common sense gun control” after Sandy Hook exactly as she treated me. I said she wanted to kill children because she would let teachers carry in schools. I was told to back off. That I made her feel bad. That everybody knew she didn’t want to kill children. She had devoted her life to children.
This is the problem. We aren’t allowed to strike back.
Earlier J.Kb. posted Female privilege won her a stupid prize. In the video a young woman is attacking a larger male. She is swatting at him. Hitting at him. It seems pretty obvious that she wanted to lay hands on him.
He attempted desculation. He backed away. He tried using his voice to get her to stop.
She finally connected. He responded, picked her up and tossed her on the ground.
She got up, and started back at him and he just shoved her backwards and moved forward in an ok fighters pose. His fist were clenched.
Then, and only then did the people around step in.
You aren’t allowed to strike back. If you do, you are the bad one.
If you take it day after day, week after week and finally snap and strike back, verbally or physically, you are the evil one. You are the bad one. You should have just sucked it up.
The left learned that no matter what they said, nobody would do to them what they did to us.
Look at January 6th. For a year we had watched the riots around the country. Week after week we saw the left attacking federal buildings, marching in “black blocks”, attacking anybody that stood up to them.
We cheered on those few occasions when the leftist thugs ran into somebody that was willing to fight back. When people fought back they won.
The media painted those that stood up for themselves as extremist. Right wing extremist. The slapped a label on us and started the name calling. It was generic name calling. It worked.
When “Patriot Prayer” had a permitted event out there in leftist land, the cops showed up. They didn’t let anybody into the event space with anything remotely like a weapon. The leftist thugs gathered outside the police lines. Fully armed. When the thugs attacked the police retrieved.
The people at the event were attacked and were unarmed, until they took the weapons from the thugs attacking them.
Over the last 5 years we have all learned to fight back. Most of us do it verbally. We do it in our articles here at GunFreeZone. We do it in our interactions with others.
This is a safe place, for us. When I write something here, I hope people will read and learn. I hope that some times our articles make it out into the wild and it brings in a few more readers.
But this is my safe space.
As a representative of Miguel’s creation, I attempt to keep the name calling to a minimum.
If Hagar doesn’t feel “safe” is that because she isn’t safe? I don’t think so. I think it is because she equates the nasty name calling that happens to her to be extend here.
Bluntly, if somebody was to start calling any of our writers or commenters derogatory names, they would lose the privilege of posting.
If you want to say that my opinion is moronic, go for it. If you want to debate with me, I’ll have that debate.
I’ve taken more than a couple of comments from our readers and responded with full articles. Because they had a point.
Having babbled for to long, I’ll leave you with this:
Try not to call individuals derogatory names. There is enough stupid stuff our enemies do that you can point it out all you want.
Is this a rule? Nope. You get to say what you want within the rule posted. “Don’t be a dick”
Thank you for being with us.

Off topic, is there anyway to subscribe to comments on a post without making a comment? I have nothing to contribute to this discussion, but do want to see future comments.
I posted a TL:DR level comment on Hagar’s write up which basically said “it’s unrealistic to expect everyone on one side of a political aisle to live up to the standard you have set.”
1. It is impossible to know what another human being will find insulting.
2. Not enough people understand that. Therefore…
3. People get insulted for stupid reasons.
The Gun Free Zone should be a place where people can say what they want, within the bounds of adult conversation, without fear of reprisals. If someone is insulted by one of my comments, I am sorry. I do not intend to insult, but sometimes snarky can be offensive to an individual.
So far, I have not been too disappointed.
Keep up the good work.
“It’s impossible to know what someone will find offensive “. THERES the problem. A simple statement of a fact today can and will “upset” somebody… you don’t even have to name call.. people are becoming more and more difficult to even say “normal “ pleasentrys to. So I don’t talk to people, period. Here on GFZ I find many topics to ponder, some I enjoy some I don’t. I am somewhat vocal on here and try to nudge things in a positive direction. When liberals resort to insults and name calling you know you have won, and its time to walk away. As the old quote says-“some people you just can’t reach”… I have mumbled enough, peace yall, be nice heh
