Something I see a lot on leftist websites and discussion boards in regards to gun control is "You dumb rednecks can't fight a modern army with stealth bombers so why do you need assault weapons". This argument is often made by fat neckbeards with no experience in the military outside of reading a lot of blogs and ignores recent history, specifically the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq where ragtag peasants managed to bleed out the world's most advanced army.
I've been studying guerilla warfare recently through reading texts by the geniuses of this particular form of combat. Mao, Giap, and Guevera all have fascinating insights that share the same overarching principals (don't group up, beware of holding ground, retreat rather then fight to the end, the enemy is your supply chain) while adding in interesting tidbits that I might not have thought about. Che in particular goes on and on about the importance of footwear. In a first world army where boots are a supply sergeant away, it doesn't seem like a big deal, but when you're fighting the war of the flea, you march on your feet.
Back to the neckbeards, they ignore that you can have the fanciest jets, billion dollar carriers, and all the rest of the high tech shit, but if you can't control the ground, you've got shit. When I was in Afghanistan and Iraq, we controlled where our footprint was. Anything outside of that was a 'maybe' at best. Do they think that the southrons from flyover Red America that they hate so much are just going to turn on their own people in the name of 'progress'?
This mental hypocrisy shouldn't be a surprise for anyone familiar with how the Left thinks. Its simply a series of compartments that have little interaction with each other beyond 'isms' and viewed through a pop culture filter. They have no idea what guerilla warfare is about, but the military they despise when its killing Salafists is the same military that they think is going to turn on its own people en masse. They view anyone not in the NYC-Chicago-LA axis as a fat, out of shape, idiot with too many guns who drives a hoverround and bitches about the government hands in their medicare because that's what the media tells them. The idea that the skills of a successful guerilla and a successful hunter overlap never occurs to them as they pen another screed from the ivory tower, imagining a new diverse Army of lowered standards and female infantry will sweep the board.
The new dawn will be a red one, but not from any sort of Marxism, but with the bloody circumstances they've set up.
