AZ AGW Itching to Hut! Hut! Hut!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Here’s video of an Arizona armed government worker swaggering around with an AR-15 (finger poised over the trigger) for no apparent legitimate reason. He’s also carrying two pistols, multiple mags and all the usual Tacticool kit, including body armor.

It appears a “welfare check” is being performed – by a squad of heavily armed men who look like they’re ready to invade Grenada.

The men video recording the scene aren’t especially coherent but their real crime is affronting the Authoritah of this real-life GI Joe wannabe. Who isn’t a “real American hero.”

They are lucky to have escaped with their lives.

We have been Stockholm Syndromed and gaslit into accepting as normal the transformation of what was once upon a time civilian police into an occupying soldiery little different in appearance and attitude toward the occupied than German soldiers in Poland circa 1940. These are not fellow citizens who are charged with keeping the peace. They are brutal enforcers – they use exactly that term to describe themselves.

One cannot reason with an enforcer.

A start would be to revert to less violent language. People often assume the roles described by the words. Doing away with enforcer would likely lead to less . . . enforcement. And doing away with the accoutrements of soldiery –  weapons of war, such as AR15 and the carrying to multiple magazines just like a soldat of the Waffen SS  – as well as the preposterous and dangerous practice of awarding “ranks” to people who aren’t in the army – would serve to further de-escalate things.

There is a false narrative that all this Hut! Hut! Hutting! is necessary because of “the times.” But the fact is violent crime is lower now than it was back in the ’90s; the main threat to the safety of us – the people – are militarized enforcers imbued with a paranoiac fear of the populace, who have been encouraged to regard us as the enemy and a perpetual “threat” that must be met with Shock and Awe at the first display of the slightest lack of “cooperation.”

Which – to them – is synonymous with failing to remove our caps and bow our heads like Warsaw ghetto juden.

Enforcers are anathema to a free society – which is why America is no longer that. It will never be that, again, so long as there are enforcers.

  1. Have you turned anti-gunner? AR 15….weapon of war? I wouldn’t be surprised if it were an M 16, an actual weapon of war.

    • True. But George Washington would be appalled that civilians cannot readily obtain select-fire weapons, and certainly would be horrified that there’s any discussion of banning and confiscating AR pattern rifles, which, compared to their military counterparts, are somewhat reduced in capability (i.e., no full-auto or multi-round ‘burst’ capability). In his first address to a joint session of Congress, our First President said, “A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined..”.

      I would invite all the gun grabbers to please cite any discussion of not only the Founding Fathers but right up to the War of Confederate Independence (what them Yankees term the “Civil” war, which certainly wasn’t ‘civil’ to the Confederacy, suh…) of restriction of firearms to civilians on the basis of capability and/or technology. Go on, find ’em! I’m damn sure they CAN’T. That’s because the several able-bodied citizens constitute the unorganized militia, and for them to have a degraded military capability compared to regular forces would have been preposterous when the Second Amendment was penned.

  2. “The whole good cop/bad cop question can be disposed of much more decisively. We need not enumerate what proportion of cops appears to be good or listen to someone’s anecdote about his Uncle Charlie, an allegedly good cop. We need only consider the following: (1) a cop’s job is to enforce the laws, all of them; (2) many of the laws are manifestly unjust, and some are even cruel and wicked; (3) therefore every cop has agreed to act as an enforcer for laws that are manifestly unjust or even cruel and wicked. There are no good cops.” ~Robert Higgs

    • Arizona is the first stop east of the Democratik Republik of Kalifornia. It is nearly impossible to get a civil service job of any kind in this state unless you are an alumni of the Rancho Cucamonga Community College ________ academy.

      Take a bunch of “helicopter parented” morons overloaded with immature emotions and repressed masculinity, and give them weapons and “authoritah”. What could possibly go wrong?

  3. It is sad but the Waffen SS in the second picture look a lot more respectable and professional (and sane) than the goon at the top who is the subject of the article.
    A wise man once said,” never threaten a little man- he’ll kill you” and these pussies are most assuredly little men.

  4. To Protect and Serve…. who? Their Master of course.

    From the “Law” Dictionary: Welfare Check.
    Most people think of the police as patrolling the streets looking for wrongdoers or responding to calls. What many people don’t realize is that the police in their community are also available to conduct a police welfare check. This essential law enforcement function is an important tool for building safe communities.

    R i g h t!, Sure, Okayyyyy.

    What is a Welfare Check?

    Friends, family, and neighbors are important social contacts. They may regularly check in with loved ones to see how they’re doing. When a loved one fails to respond, the police can be called in to conduct a welfare check.

    So it took 4-5 fat man SUVs and 6-8 Stormtroopers in full regalia to check on Granny. And this is an essential function.


  5. I think the majority of California earthquakes are from Joe Friday (Jack Webb) spinning brodies in his grave.

    While the police once earned the respect of the public, now they are merely deserving of ridicule.
