Gettysburg

Postby rickdun » Fri Jun 30, 2017 4:02 pm

Here's an article I came across about a bunch of crackpots who want to destroy the Gettysburg Battlefield Anniversary on July 1-3.

That would not be a good idea. Almost all reenactors are veterans or active duty military. The unit I commanded was almost entirely made up of marines. There will be around 12,000 on the field. God, I miss the old days.

I figured it was just a matter of time before it was going to be an issue for Gettysburg, with all the Confederate monuments there This is crazy! Makes my stomach churn to see this crap happening across the country. History is history. It's what birthed this nation. I need an island or a hillside somewhere away from humanity. -k

The only way to kill this beast - is to starve it to death. Stop all charitable giving (this includes useless family that should be doing for themselves), pay as little in taxes as you can, vote against increased benefits or taxes - no matter how deserving, and don't spend or keep a dime in the system that you don't have to.

'Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without.' Put any savings in tangibles that cannot be traced! Your are either part of the solution or you are part of the problem. Self Reliance and Barter should be your highest priorities and is their greatest fear! When the system collapses and it will, their priorities will change in a hurry! Will you be ready? Swamp

Develop a personal scorched earth policy to avoid aiding the enemies!

A military strategy of burning or destroying buildings, crops, or other resources that might be of use to an invading enemy force.

Armed 'patriot' accidentally shoots self in leg at Gettysburg battlefield
http://s.pennlive.com/GdjGcUE

GETTYSBURG--A patriot who brought a revolver to Gettysburg National Military Park Saturday amid rumors of desecration of memorials accidentally shot himself in the leg Saturday.

The man in his 20s accidentally triggered the revolver, which was inside a leg holster, when he temporarily rested the bottom of his flag pole against the holster, according to witnesses.
Park police were nearby when the shooting occurred and officers quickly applied a tourniquet that may have saved the man's life, said Sgt. Anna Rose, a spokeswoman with the U.S. Park Police.

A tourniquet type device covered the wound on the man's left thigh as he was loaded into an ambulance. He talked with paramedics and seemed in good spirits.

The gun then went off a second time about 1 p.m. when police were trying to unload the weapon. The gun was pointed at the ground in a field north of Meade's Headquarters along the west side of Taneytown Road. A PennLive reporter witnessed the second shot, which occurred as visitors to the park milled nearby.

Officers said the gun was "bad" and they had a hard time getting the rounds out of the chamber. After they forced all of the rounds out of the revolver, they secured the gun.

Other patriots nearby said they had just talked to the man who was injured and that he came by himself to the park. He was not part of any specific group, but was just there as a patriot, they said.

Dozens of self-described Patriots came to the park about noon Saturday after hearing rumors that Antifa protesters might crash the park's events and try to desecrate memorials. Members of Antifa caused a ruckus in Harrisburg recently at an Anti-Sharia rally and one member was arrested for swinging a wooden pole with a nail attached at a police horse.

The rumors on Saturday appeared to be just that: rumors, as no Antifa members were seen at Gettysburg park Saturday.

Instead, there were dozens of men in camouflage outfits, some carrying long rifles or handguns or both, milling about the park holding large American flags. They walked outside of the perimeter of the fenced-in "official" demonstration areas, which were nearly empty all day.

A handful of members from the Real 3 % Risen group sat in one fenced area wearing Confederate flag hats and t-shirts while a lone man with a sign aligning the Confederate flag with slavery and racism sat alone in another fenced area.

The goal is to destroy history but only the southern part .
This will only effect a few Americans so to the rest of the population just don't care .
To see things as they are not as they want you to see them .. With the stroke of a pen all you rights and freedom can end ...

I have come to believe, that they wish to rewrite history to validate their view of America. No different than Hitler did to German history during his rise and the Jews did to Jewish history after his fall.

A few more years of californication and leftist news and we may be welcoming ISIS as our liberator. Swamp
