The Insurrectionist (more)

WhiteManistan Good Will Tour.

One of the common motivations now on display by the gun nut minority in WhiteManistan is the need to appear threatening. One must either appear on websites or on video, or in pictures, talking about killing others, revolution, or doing something that amounts to waving a gun or assault rifle in the face of average citizens.

Behaviorally, it’s profoundly anti-social, nothing an actual civil society would be proud of. It is not a demonstration of freedom. More accurately, it’s the behavior of people who are more interested in bullying entire swaths of society. And it doesn’t take a degreed expert in human psychology to get it.

The media mainstream has a hard time dealing with it because it comes almost exclusively from white male America, a demographic which has, up until now, been shielded from substantial and continuing pressure and criticism. It’s the equivalent of a symbolic pistol whipping, the behavior part and parcel with the surge in gun and ammunition hoarding, a retail arms-buying stampede in which it has not been difficult to find any number of belligerent white guys proclaiming they’re ready to offer the government armed resistance.

Those flaunting weaponry never admit to why they’re actually doing it. The service is always about generously educating others, allegedly furnishing some social good by showing the safe carrying of assault rifles.

From the Salt Lake City Tribune:

Cindy Yorgason was in line at the J.C. Penney in Riverdale on Wednesday when she looked up and saw a shopper with “a large gun.”

Yorgason said the rifle was slung across the back of the man in front of her. When she looked closer, she saw that he also had extra ammunition clips and a sidearm in a holster on his right hip …

On Thursday, 22-year-old Joseph Kelley identified himself as the man in Yorgason’s pictures. Kelley described himself as a firm believer in Second Amendment rights and said he decided to bring the guns to the store to demonstrate that they are not dangerous in the hands of law-abiding citizens.

According to Kelley, the rifle was an unloaded AR-15 and the handgun was a loaded Glock 19C. He said he has a concealed-carry permit, is a former member of the military and contacted police dispatch before leaving his home to tell them about his plans. Kelley also said he was told that he was “well within his rights” and that bystanders’ reactions were positive.

Opinions vary.

“I thought that he was pretty much an idiot,” Yorgason told the newspaper.

In Portland, a man named Warren Drouin engages in the same activity, showing up in various neighborhoods on patrol with his AR-15. This has invariably resulted in calls to 911 with police dispatched so often they now know Drouin by name.

Drouin videotapes these encounters and uploads them to YouTube, part of an effort, again alleged to be educating people on their second amendment rights.

Drouin qualifies as an aggravating public nuisance, someone who goes into a neighborhood toting his assault rifle in the full knowledge 911 calls will ensue with the police dispatched to check on him. The local authorities have not been able to creatively figure out how to put an end to it although enforcement of laws to remove vagrants or curb flashing, public urination and other similar disturbances would seem to have some application.

In addition, one questions the mental status of someone who is jazzed by the idea of others calling 911 when he shows up in their area with his AR-15. And whether he should even have a gun permit in the first place.

During the Blair administration, Britain came up with a remedy for nuisances called ASBOs, or anti-social behavior orders.

The application of them has been patchy with much debate about their necessity.

Nevertheless, an ASBO is defined thusly:

Under section 1C(2) CDA an order on conviction may be made by a court following conviction for a relevant offence if the court considers:

That the offender has acted, at any time since [1 April 1999], in an anti-social manner, that is to say in a manner that caused or was likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to one or more persons not of the same household as himself, and

An order under this section is necessary to protect persons in any place in England and Wales from further anti-social acts by him.

The case of Gosport Borough Council, R (on the application of) v Fareham Magistrates Court [2006] EWHC 3047 (Admin) states that there should be some evidence before the court that the behaviour in question has caused or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress.

The order is given to prevent the individual named from repeating the nuisance activity.

The display of AR-15s in department stores or ex-urban household neighborhoods — well, DD thinks a case can easily be made that it constitutes activity which the perpetrators implicitly know many in the general public, not in their family, will find harassing. And that’s a big reason why it’s done — the full knowledge that it’s very noticeable, uncivil and intimidating.

WhiteManistan Gemutlichkeit. You see, they’re just educating us. Bigger.

    The laws around the ASBOs are the last thing you want. These will eventually only be used for white manistan, not against it.
    In the wake of this nonsense GB got terrible laws, that are rightfully fought against:
    If you only now Rowan Atkinson as Mr. Bean then this my be a bit of a surprise. As is often the case the comments to the video are quite revealing.

    Since Gemütlichkeit is a german word you could argue, that it is a decidedly white state of mind. Personally i find the idea best manifested in the painting “The poor poet” bei Carl Spitzweg

    You nailed it with the painting, Chris. But it’s too subtle for America. Even Gemutlichkeit, used wryly, is too subtle.

    You may be right about ASBOs and abuse of such. There’s already abuse of vagrancy misdemeanor law in the US, used mostly to pick on the poor and, more recently. Occupy.

    But this underlines the point I’ve been making about WhiteManistan. So far, no one drags off the white right wing dbags who do open carry of assault rifles as belligerent nuisance theater. So far, they’re allowed to harass the polity at will. And it inspires a growing resentment, increasing the perceived polarization in America, that there is the cultivation of a sentiment for civil war between a white minority that believes it is the bedrock of patriotism and victimized because of it.

    Well this is something, that i can not understand in the least. Under german law which is extremely strict as far as gun control is concerned, you are not even allowed to openly carry an air gun or even a replica, since someone might feel threatened by this. There are of course more than enough ways to get a gun, legal or illegal, but people don’t tend to show them around. We also divide guns in the classes hunting and sports weapons or weapons of war. The latter are absolutely prohibited for private use of any kind. Getting caught with one will get you into jail without probation.
    I don’t think your gun control laws will ever be anything like this, but the proposals i heard so far seem to indicate, that at least the “weapon of war” category may be introduced, which in my opinion doesn’t change much, but is a step in the right direction.

    “”since someone might feel threatened by this.”

    Seems sensible. That’s why we flout it. It’s about making those not in the tribe of gun nut feel threatened. It’s all bound up in exhibitions of white male potency. Around twenty years ago a substantial part of America decided that being sensible was anti-American.
