Enemy at the Gate: When Free Speech Is Made Criminal

In July, retired U.S. Army General Wesley Clark, who sought the Democratic nomination for the 2004 Presidential election, made the startling statement in an MSNBC interview that Americans who are “disloyal to the United States” should be subjected to internment “for the duration of the conflict.” The conflict to which he referred is the amorphously

Enemy at the Gate: Disobeying Unconstitutional Orders

Last month’s column made several not-too-complimentary references to “hired government muscle.” That may have raised a few eyebrows in a publication with a target audience with so much, well, “hired government muscle.” As a former “muscle” myself, I should clarify my meaning, which was certainly not intended to cast aspersions on the professions of law

Enemy at the Gate: Hate Speech Is Free Speech

A poll conducted by YouGov in May found that 41% of Americans and 51% of Democrats favor outlawing public speech that would “stir up hatred” against certain groups of people. The idea was opposed by 37% of Americans in general and 26% of Democrats. That’s right—the majority (by a nearly two-to-one margin) of Democrats surveyed

Enemy at the Gate: Anti-gunners’ Endgame

“We don’t have to vaporize all the guns,” writes Andrea Grimes, senior editor for RH Reality Check, a lefty journal dedicated to “Reproductive & Sexual Health and Justice.” “Let’s just vaporize white men’s guns.” Although she adds that eventually firearms should be taken away from everybody, white men are a good start. “As a bonus,”

Enemy at the Gate: Yassuh, Massah Bloomberg!

We activists have been saying all along that “gun control” is really victim disarmament. I can’t recall our enemies ever addressing that issue directly, but now one of the biggest guns (you’ll pardon the expression) in the anti-gun movement has admitted the truth. And boy, did he admit it in a big way. Michael Bloomberg

Enemy at the Gate: Right To Rebellion

Is there a right to rebel against government? “No way!” says Paul Begala. So who is Begala and why should his opinion count for anything? He was a chief strategist of the 1992 Clinton/Gore presidential campaign and a prominent advisor to Clinton. He later co-hosted CNN’s Crossfire political-debate program. He’s a professor of public policy

Enemy at the Gate: Bloodlust of the Anti-Gunners

The Bloombergian “moms” and their friends have been violent lately. “You see a GunFilth waving its penis substitute, exit, call police. Armed robbery in progress.” So recommends Twitter user LittleBlackDog. Lest you be tempted to think that creatures like LittleBlackDog are anomalies—embarrassing creeps who get quickly put down by the more sincere, life-respecting “moms”—have a

Enemy at the Gate: We Don’t All Need To Be Rambo

I own guns. I’ve had some decent training, but it was a while back. I don’t practice frequently. When I do, it tends to be with a favored few firearms. I haven’t rehearsed clearing a room or firing while “moving in a highly dynamic manner” in ages. Nor do I regularly practice things like shooting

Enemy at the Gate: We, The Rattlesnake

British colonists arriving on America’s shores discovered a lot of inhospitable things. Rocky soil and nasty weather in the north. Malaria in the south. And eventually hostile natives everywhere. Among the many unfriendlies were rattlesnakes. Colonists on the north coast encountered the timber rattlesnake. Those farther south had to deal with the eastern diamondback, the most massive pit viper in the world.
