The III Percent
Mission Statement: Rightful liberty is
unobstructed action according to our will
within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. ~ Thomas Jefferson
It is time to excise The Stupid from the III. When the public looks at us they see a joke - a dangerous, not-funny joke. Part of that is because we let our community be defined by the wrong people - people who do not defend their own lines in the sand, people who are intellectually and otherwise dishonest, people who 'play Patriot' as a hobby, people who simply are not serious.
Not long after we hosted another very successful PatCon here in Idaho, on the eve of returning III Arms products to market, as Phase I construction drew near for another project, as a fellow Patriot was working R&D on a serious Comms tool for our fellow III, as more and more people buy homes and move to our AO, as serious Patriots signed on to be trainers at the Jedburgh Academy - a small group of people decided to once again launch an anti-K campaign. The timing of the attacks is understandable if you comprehend the larger picture. The Kerodins partner very successfully with other Patriots to get real, tangible work done in the Liberty Movement.
Believe it or not, there are people who do not want the III to be a serious component of the Liberty Forces. Some of those people are in our midst. Some are trolls. Some are Provocateurs. Some are simply miserable Souls who struggle with their own demons by lashing outward. A few of those people have been invited into my core at one time or another, only to have been separated. The current knot of anti-K silliness is centered around several FSA, FedGov and StateGov parasites – interestingly, all of whom claim to be not only ‘Patriots’ – but ‘III’ as well. (And these idiots claim to be the A-Team defenders of Liberty!!!) They have developed a very unhealthy, unhinged obsession with me and my wife – I think they should seek mental health professionals. Srsly.
I have let their little hamsters run free for about 2 months now. At the end of the day, what have they proven? For all the direct and implied accusations, what is really on the table? Take a good look, folks. For all of the public record searches and man-hours spent trying to find some instance where I have done wrong – they got nada. There is no there there. There is no new information and nothing that was 'hidden'. Where is the line of people whose pockets have supposedly been picked and legs supposedly broken?
Where is the corpus delicti? (Translated: Where’s the beef?!)
Some of my friends and allies have expressed concern that I haven’t responded in public. I’ve been here before. I’ve been here many times before. Red Mike began 5 years ago. The smears being leveled today are the same, simply recycled. I just can’t get excited by The Stupid or let it distract me from the serious work we are getting done. I also let it ride because I knew where it would all end – right here, with not one single living person with a verifiable injury caused by me.
does not mean
underway - it
just means I am
not going to
(That I haven't responded online does not mean action isn't underway - it just means I am not going to discuss those measures publicly.)
The argument process they have used should be quite familiar and easily identifiable by serious Patriots, afterall, our Leftist enemies use it all the time. Here’s how it goes: Kerodin is a man. Men have penises. Men with penises rape people. OHMYGODS!!! Kerodin must be a rapist! - or - Kerodin is a man. He’s a white man. White men owned slaves. OHMYGODS!!! Kerodin must be a racist slave-owning KKK leader! - or – Kerodin is a red-head. Everyone knows red-heads have cooties. OHMYGODS!!! Kerodin must have cooties!
The problem with this style of attack? THERE ARE NO VICTIMS STANDING UP WITH GENUINE INJURIES.
To my friends and allies: I have stated many times I will remain on point – that I am built for it. I will take the headwinds so that you may make forward progress for Liberty without suffering the Enemies of Liberty that will constantly try to impede our work. I do not care if I am liked – I care if we can work together to forward Liberty.
This has been me staying on point and taking the headwinds. I can and will continue to do so, as long as I know you have my back and will not fold in our march toward Rightful Liberty.
