Eric Holder’s Proposed New Law: ‘Lie Down And Die’

July 23rd, 2013 - 11:20 am

In the wake of the Zimmerman-Martin case, Attorney General and Corrupt Political Hack Eric Holder has taken aim at Stand Your Ground laws because they had nothing to do with the Zimmerman-Martin case but are a distraction from the issue of racism, which also had nothing to do with it.  So… that makes sense.

Stand Your Ground laws allow a person to defend himself against attack without evading the attacker, running away, begging for mercy or freeing prisoners from Guantanamo so they can return to the battlefield. Without Stand Your Ground laws if, just for instance, a teenager trained in mixed martial arts techniques and stoned on cough syrup and watermelon soda found himself smashing your head into the pavement for some reason, you would not be allowed to rush to judgement and automatically take this amiss just because the attacker happened to be African American. Instead, you would be required to say something like, “Excuse me, young man. Pardon me. I say, I understand your people have suffered from discrimination, but would you mind terribly not smashing my head into the pavement?” If he refused and went on to kill you, you would then be permitted to come back to life and shoot him.

As an older individual, I can't take a beating the way I used to. Such assaults can be life-threatening at this stage of the game. So, I have a simple rule:

Assault me or my wife and I will kill you. Without mercy. Without remorse.

Racist? Hardly. Thugs will discover that they're all equal over the sights of my SIG.

Mr. Klavan;
I don't know why you are all knotted up about this proposal.

All any of us would have to do to be exempted from being the target of Holder's ire would be to forsake our HOA Neighborhood Watch and join a Mexican drug cartel gang.

He'd SUPPLY us with more weapons than a gun-nut's wet-dream...and apparently wouldn't even mind if we busted caps into some Federal Law Enforcement Officers with 'em.

No problemo, ess-say!

Stand Your Ground gives the target the option to resist. The regime would rather the victim fall or flee, safeguarding the attacker from workplace violence. OSHA coverage for all professions!

"Lay down and die?" More like "run white boy, run."

This is pretty much how England ended up the mess it is now. At some point, perhaps late 1800's early 1900's, the culture of the elite shifted from self-defense to "it is deeming to fight back and put yourself at the level of a ruffian." Indeed many adherents thought it much better to actually die at the hands of an assailant than to lift a finger to fight back. Then after WWI there was fear of a Communist rising in coal country and the first major gun grab happened.

A short time later the Nazis are swarming across the Channel and guns are in such short supply the home guard is armed with makeshift spears and pepper pots to through in the Germans' eyes. US Civilians send many guns and ammunition to them.

From then on it was steadily worse gun laws up to the present where you pretty well can't own a gun but if you dare fight back at all against a criminal you get hauled off on charges and the state will really slam you in it's desperation to prove it doesn't favor lawful citizens over criminals. Thus while the poor slob is losing his shirt and facing jail time, the criminal might not have even been charged, getting roughed up in the course of his "life choice" seen as punishment enough. That's probably where the US is headed.

Their agenda is to take away our basic rights of self defense. This hurts all of America no matter what color you are. The Blacks need this STAND YOUR GROUND as much as anyone else. You are a racist if you think different.

THE THEORY THAT BECOMING A VICTIM IS SOMEHOW MORALLY SUPERIOR TO DEFENDING YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY MAKES PERFECT SENSE......(
.doesn't it?)

Quite frankly, I think Holder's LDD law falls far short of what is needed in this country. Why should those of us (white, heterosexual males) guilty of all evil ever perpetrated, past, present, and future, have to wait until attacked to be murdered? Instead shouldn’t we simply be required to report “home”, for processing, once we reach a certain age? Much more civil and sanitary.

Eric Holder and Barack Hussein Obama are thugs. They both belong in jail. They are "race baiters" and do not represent the people of the US. Both are a failure; a do nothing, know nothing. Holder was held in contempt by Congress. He should be put in handcuffs and in jail. Obama set all media up to spying on American citizens, did not approve TEA PARTy non-exempt organizations by his instructions to IRS, audited conservative groups and people's tax returns, let 4 people die in Benghazi, bombed Libya without consent of Congress; Obama has broken so many laws and is the most unconstitutional person in the White House; he makes Nixon look like a baby. Obama should be thrown out of office for treason an his racist remarks. He has divided the country into rich/poor, white/black, legal/immigrant, money to rich banks/high unemployment among the middle class; I could go on and and on but he i8 a "faKE" hated by most people in US and world. He started a burning cauldron in the Middle East which is now aflame. He only pressures Israel and not his Muslim friends in the Middle East because he is a Muslim. He called Fort Hood, "man made disaster".; let out secrets about the capture of the Navy Seals in regard to the Bin Laden capture. He is a traitor and traitors are usually hung by the neck.
