KeepAndBearArms.com -- Regarding: Flier
raises questions of 'Hate Speech' http://jrnl.com/cfdocs/new/stories/fp03mc03202002.htm
In Montgomery County, Maryland, Augustus Alzona is
in trouble with the Democrat and Republican parties and the Jewish Community
Council of Greater Washington. Republican officials have started proceedings
to remove Alzona from his position on the local Republican Central
What exactly did Alzona do to bring such wrath down
upon his head? He distributed a flyer (created by the Tyranny Response Team http://v1.net/trt) implying that a
proposed gun registration and licensing scheme (which would require all gun
buyers also to submit to fingerprinting and mug shots) was Hitlerian. The
flyer showed the faces of three Democrat politicians digitally imposed onto
photographs of Nazi soldiers.
Apparently some critics have decided that this flyer
constitutes "hate speech" and is even "anti-Semitic."
And therefore, Mr. Alzona must go.
Earth to critics:
1. Fact: The Nazis (initially using existing
laws of the Weimar Republic) required registration of firearms. Hitler then
used these laws to confiscate all firearms from Jews, thus making it more
difficult to fight back against his Final Solution. The flyer Mr. Alzona
distributed is accurate in implying that "gun control" advocates
have something in common with Nazis.
2. Fact: Calling an opponent a Nazi can
hardly be "anti-Semitic," and it's astonishing anyone could be so
ignorant as to think so. In this case, it's PRO-Semitic. It is a warning to
Jew and other minorities (of which Mr. Alzona himself is one) not to trust
excessive government control. From Pharaoh to the Tsars to Stalin to -- yes
-- Hitler, powerful governments have never been good for the Jews. It's a
mystery why so many Jews in America support citizen disarmament. Do
America's Jewish Councils have the same mindset as their predecessors, the
ghetto _Judenrat_ of Europe, which urged their people to cooperate with the
Nazis -- until almost none of their people were left? (This attitude was
clearly depicted in the NBC-TV film, "Uprising," which can now be
seen on video.)
3. Fact: Jews for the Preservation of
Firearms Ownership has repeatedly documented the connection between
"gun control" and genocide, including Hitler's Final Solution, in
books (_Death by Gun Control_, _Gateway to Tyranny_) and articles http://jpfo.org/genocide.htm.
Anyone who doubts the accuracy of the TRT's flyer can look at the documents
on our Web site.
4. Finally, to the accusation that Mr.
Alzona's distribution of the flyer constitutes "hate speech," I
can only say, "Wake up. You live in America. We have free speech here,
not governmental mind control. When freedom is at stake, political speech
can -- and should -- be vehement and strong." In this case, I remind
you, it was not only strong, but accurate.
I am a Jew, a Semite. My organization, Jews for the
Preservation of Firearms Ownership, has used the image of Hitler to
characterize those who want to control, and eventually deprive us of, our
This image is one of the most popular JPFO has ever produced -- and it's
popular with both Jewish and Gentile supporters.
If you want to take me on for producing
"anti-Semitic" "hate speech," go ahead - make my day.
