Be afraid of your neighbor…get the Glock…keep the loaded weapon in the house…the intruder might not be the neighbor’s drunk teenager.
Be afraid of the neighborhood…don’t let your kids out of sight…no more outside play…keep them on their IPads and TVs…the police might arrest you for child endangerment if your young ones are outside alone…no more exploring the woods or canyons or crawling on the monkey bars…something bad might happen…be afraid.
Police, be afraid of the man on the street. He’s probably better armed than you. Thanks to the NRA every psychopath in the country can have his own arsenal. Be afraid to knock on the door…it’s probably a trap, a set-up…barge right in. Bring out the assault vehicles, bring in the SWAT team. Be afraid of the dog in the yard…so what if he’s defending his home…can’t he see your badge? Don’t be afraid to shoot first…shoot to kill…fear is its own justification.
Be afraid…be afraid of the police. They are afraid of you…don’t move toward them, don’t ask for help. Submit…the beatings will end, eventually.
Be afraid…be afraid of the Democrats…they are bound and determined to have government monitor and control your every move. Be afraid of loss liberty, of freedom curtailed, of your guns confiscated, of being told what you can eat. Be afraid of your business sucked dry and your income confiscated to redistribute to the unworthy and unwanted.
Be afraid…be afraid of the Republicans…they are bound and determined to have government monitor and control your every move. Be afraid of loss liberty, of freedom curtailed, of your body no longer your own, of being told who you can love. Be afraid of your computer hacked and your phones monitored…someone somewhere has contacts with some bad guy somewhere, and no sacrifice is too great to achieve security.
Be afraid…be afraid of the Libertarians…they are bound and determined to have government stay out of the way of everyone else who is afraid, who do what they do because they can, those that think rules are for sissies and the market will self balance. Be afraid of rampant individualism…for them there is no shared society.
Be afraid…be afraid of migrants and immigrants…they want to be here, so something must be wrong with them…they’re diseased, they’re ignorant, they don’t speak English.
Be afraid of our allies…they are all socialists anyway…they don’t carry guns…many have health care for their citizens…they only help us in our wars reluctantly, if at all…
Be afraid of the Russians…they want to bring back the Soviet Union and their empire…who cares if their country defines alcoholic.
Be afraid of the Chinese…they are on the march gobbling up nearby territories and distant resources…who cares if the air in Beijing will kill you.
Can someone please tell me why and how Americans came to be so afraid…what happened to using common sense, having a little self-confidence that did not come from a finger on a trigger—individually or as a Nation? Just asking….
