Don’t Be Dumb

It shouldn’t need to be said but it still needs to be said, and I say it on a recurring basis. The Powers That Be in this country want to see you in prison or preferably dead. Most of you get that but I assume some newer readers might now and need this reminder: don’t make their job any easier. Don’t be dumb online and don’t be dumb in real life.

Something that goes alongside “don’t be dumb” is that just because something should be legal and acceptable doesn’t mean that it is legal. The laws and more importantly the application, interpretation and enforcement of laws are made by people that by and large hate you. Break those laws and at best you get arrested and there is a pretty decent chance you get murdered.

Case in point, the recent murder of an Arkansas business executive named Bryan Malinowski who was gunned down in his own home by an ATF SWAT team. Lee Williams did a good write up of his murder here: UPDATED: ATF SWAT raid that killed Arkansas man raises more questions of excessive force.

Mr. Malinowski was a 53 year old man in Little Rock, the executive director of the Clinton National Airport and a gun enthusiast. He apparently purchased a lot of guns, “142 firearms from 2019 to 2023”, which granted is a lot of guns but then again, guns are perfectly legal and unlike almost anything else you can buy are protected by the 2nd Amendment. The problem seems to be that he was then selling guns at gun shows, which is also legal. I don’t have the affidavit but the New York Times writes:

The authorities accused Mr. Malinowski of having purchased more than 100 guns in recent years and of illegally selling many of them, including at least three that were later found to be connected with a crime. Mr. Malinowski first bought the guns legally, checking a box on purchase forms stating that the guns were for himself, before selling them privately to individuals, the affidavit states.

He would go to gun shows, the affidavit said, including two in Arkansas and one in Tennessee, and sell guns to people “without asking for any identification or paperwork.”

Photographs included in the redacted affidavit show Mr. Malinowski at a gun show, standing behind a booth filled with firearms. The affidavit also states that Mr. Malinowski had sold guns to two undercover agents who were investigating him.

I am not sure if those “illegally sold” guns were actual straw purchases or if he was just selling the guns at gun shows to people that weren’t legally eligible to buy a firearm. The ATF was clearly looking at him closely as they had undercover agents buying guns from him at a gun show, and selling guns privately at a gun show is something that again is completely legal. Regardless the ATF decided to make an example of this man and kicked his door in at 6 AM. There was an exchange of gunfire in which Mr. Malinowski was fatally shot in the head and an ATF agent received a non-life threatening wound. This raises a bunch of questions.

I don’t know about your house, but in my home someone banging on the door and yelling “ATF! Search warrant!”, assuming they even did that much, followed by smashing down my door when I am sound asleep means a few things:

One, I almost certainly wouldn’t hear them declaring themselves. I probably would hear *something* but would it be clear enough for me to know what they were saying? Certainly not.

Two, before they even got to the door my dogs would start barking like crazy making it even less likely that I would hear them announce themselves.

Three, as soon as that door was breached my dogs would be on the entry team like white on rice and you know how much the Fed Alphabet bois love to shoot dogs.

Now, here I am up in my bed. I hear my dogs making a commotion and some muffled shouting. Then I hear my door being kicked down and gunfire as they shoot my dogs. At this point what am I supposed to think, especially since I am not a criminal and have no reason to think LEOs are going to be kicking in my door (nor did Bryan Malinowski). My only assumption is that someone is here to harm my family and that means that as a father and husband, and theoretically a free man in the United States of America, I have not only a right but an absolute responsibility to protect my family. As I have no way of knowing who has entered by home, I have to assume the worst.

Now I come downstairs in a home in chaos, armed and prepared to defend my family. The Feds see a guy with a gun and I probably can’t see much with the flashlights shining at me. You can see what happens next.

There is a major quandary here. In Indiana we are under a pretty strong set of “Castle doctrine” laws. When it comes to protecting your domicile, per the Indiana code:

(d) A person:

(1) is justified in using reasonable force, including deadly force, against any other person;  and

(2) does not have a duty to retreat;

if the person reasonably believes that the force is necessary to prevent or terminate the other person’s unlawful entry of or attack on the person’s dwelling, curtilage, or occupied motor vehicle.

If you are trying to break into my home, I am justified in using deadly force if needed to defend my dwelling. That same Indiana code also has specific rules about using force, including deadly force, against “public servants”, emphasis mine…

(i) A person is justified in using reasonable force against a public servant if the person reasonably believes the force is necessary to:

(1) protect the person or a third person from what the person reasonably believes to be the imminent use of unlawful force;

(2) prevent or terminate the public servant’s unlawful entry of or attack on the person’s dwelling, curtilage, or occupied motor vehicle;  or

(3) prevent or terminate the public servant’s unlawful trespass on or criminal interference with property lawfully in the person’s possession, lawfully in possession of a member of the person’s immediate family, or belonging to a person whose property the person has authority to protect.

(j) Notwithstanding subsection (i), a person is not justified in using force against a public servant if:

(1) the person is committing or is escaping after the commission of a crime;

(2) the person provokes action by the public servant with intent to cause bodily injury to the public servant;

(3) the person has entered into combat with the public servant or is the initial aggressor, unless the person withdraws from the encounter and communicates to the public servant the intent to do so and the public servant nevertheless continues or threatens to continue unlawful action;  or

(4) the person reasonably believes the public servant is:

(A) acting lawfully;  or

(B) engaged in the lawful execution of the public servant’s official duties.

If you are in the act or on the run after committing a crime (a police pursuit in other words) or you attack the public servant or do something to provoke them or you “entered into combat”, in other words attacked the public servant, then this doesn’t apply. It also doesn’t apply if you “reasonably believe” the public servant is engaged in the lawful execution of their official duties. That becomes awfully murky. On the one hand, the “public servant” in question is “engaged in the lawful execution of the public servant’s official duties” in the execution of a warrant, but on the other hand in the scenario described above I have no way to know that is what is going on and no way to “reasonably believe” that the public servant is engaged in the lawful execution of their duties or even that they are a public servant in the first place. All I know is that someone who is armed has entered my home without permission and shot my dogs.

That is why “no knock” SWAT raids should be extremely rare and reserved only for cases where there is no reasonable and prudent way to execute a warrant in any other fashion. Instead they have become almost the default.

This is the critical point: it won’t matter.

If the ATF shoots me dead after entering my house with a warrant, they will almost certainly face no repercussions. If I shoot and kill an ATF agent who has entered my home because I have no idea who they are and I am trying to protect my family, I will almost certainly be prosecuted, found guilty and imprisoned for life. That is assuming that the other SWAT team members don’t just gun me down.

In the case of Bryan Malinowski, pictured below:

….would it not seem reasonable to come to his home in the light of day, knock on the door and present him with your warrant? Or even as suggested in the linked article from Lee Williams, wait until he leaves, pull him over and then arrest him? A 53 year old executive who has no criminal background (he regularly purchases firearms and is approved in background checks) approached by uniformed law enforcement in a reasonable manner is really not likely to resist or pull a gun.

I am not blaming Bryan here. I am simply pointing out that being visible as a seller at gun shows, shows that are chock full of ATF agents, is a great way to be identified as someone they would like to make an example of. The ATF has declared that they are looking at gun shows and many of the FFLs that have been shut down were targeted because they were primarily selling at gun shows. They also declared that selling guns for a profit is a problem if you don’t have your FFL. Right or wrong (spoiler: it is wrong) that is what the ATF is doing.

This promises to get worse. The people actually running the Biden administration have announced a new National Extreme Risk Protection Order (ERPO) (aka red flag laws) Resource Center that will be tasked with encouraging state and local groups to use red flag laws:

The Justice Department launched the National Extreme Risk Protection Order (ERPO) Resource Center (the Center) which  will provide training and technical assistance to law enforcement officials, prosecutors, attorneys, judges, clinicians, victim service and social service providers, community organizations, and behavioral health professionals responsible for implementing laws designed to keep guns out of the hands of people who pose a threat to themselves or others.

“The launch of the National Extreme Risk Protection Order Resource Center will provide our partners across the country with valuable resources to keep firearms out of the hands of individuals who pose a threat to themselves or others,” said Attorney General Merrick B. Garland. “The establishment of the Center is the latest example of the Justice Department’s work to use every tool provided by the landmark Bipartisan Safer Communities Act to protect communities from gun violence.”

ERPO laws, which are modeled off domestic violence protection orders, create a civil process allowing law enforcement, family members (in most states), and medical professionals or other groups (in some states) to petition a court to temporarily prohibit someone at risk of harming themselves or others from purchasing and possessing firearms for the duration of the order.

The “Safer Communities” act will of course make people less safe and less free. These laws have already proven problematic, both for targeting people inaccurately and not stopping the very sort of people the laws are supposed to prevent from carrying out shootings. So of course the plan is to expand their use.

I am not totally a “Gray Man” sort of guy, obviously I use my real name when I write my ThoughtCrimes. But I still try to be careful and not go out of my way to draw a shitstorm down on my head. They can kill you and they can get away with it and they know it.

One of the items on my personal list of rules to live by (and yes I have an actual list of pithy thoughts) is this:

The future will be made by the people who make it to the future.

If you are dead or in jail, you probably aren’t doing much to win the future for our people

It is a fine line. We need people speaking out publicly about what is happening. I know I put myself at risk by blogging and speaking out using my real name, both from the alphabet agencies and the leftist loons who think mocking trannies is LITERAL GENOCIDE. But we need to be smart about what we are doing. I can’t emphasize this enough: just because you should be able to do something doesn’t mean They won’t kill you for doing it.

Do what you want. I can’t tell you what to do and I wouldn’t if I could. Just weigh the pros and cons and recognize the consequences. Don’t do shit in real life that will draw the Eye of Sauron and don’t say stuff online that will do the same. I want you all beside me when The Time comes and you won’t be if you are dead or rotting away as a political prisoner in some gulag.

    You don’t keep one under your pillow?
    Probably not as important living rural.
    Only about two people I can trust on guns and that red law crap has one foot in Pineland forest due to local and family busybody Karens who need a constructive hobby besides interfering in the lives of others.
    SWATting or getting some poor dumb Slats Grobnik caught up in a court case is funny to them.
    Maybe they are hoping to be first riders on the Indian Ocean High Speed Rail that Brandon is building or an increase in rations from the historic cargo cult czar when it all goes tits up. (/s)

    The guy was being stupid. He was buying guns from online wholesalers, having them delivered to his friendly FFL, and reselling them at gun shows as “private collection” sometimes within 48 hours, visibly taking guns out of factory new packaging to sell to undercover agents. Probably the most egregious case of dealing without an FFL that I have ever heard of.
    Still. He was guilty of at most white collar paperwork crimes, and busting in his house with a SWAT team to perform an execution was a statement, not a necessity. The excesses of the ATF during and since the Clinton administration are well known. Nothing new there.
    The red flag law coordination center is to target dissidents with FPOs and if they can kick a few doors and get some kills, they will like it even better. That is something new-ish, at least.
    Don’t be stupid.

    Solzhenitsyn wrote of how some burned in the camps, wishing they had defended themselves when they could still do so (even if unsuccessfully) instead of submitting to arrest. Once you submit, you are at their mercy, or the lack thereof, and can die at any time.

    Some of us have already decided that there are conditions not worth living under, and will defend ourselves from these circumstances by means. The likelyhood of survival is irrelevant. It *is*, however, morally incumbent upon us, that we *cost* them, more than we’re worth. Too bad this fellow didn’t achieve that objective.

      it has been pointed out previously, lenin never killed anyone. stalin never killed anyone. hitler never killed anyone. mao never killed anyone.

      grubmint employees killed millions.

      • Mike_C

        Well, yeah. Fair enough.

        But ideas and policies are what matter. I’m pretty sure Barbara Lerner Spectre never personally raped a Swedish girl either, but she has some responsibility for EVERY girl raped by “immigrants” in Sweden, whereas culture-enricher Ahmadou is responsible only for the specific girls he’s raped. (Don’t get me wrong, both have to go, but Ahmadou is retail, BLS is wholesale, with a government mandate, yet.)

        • old geezer

          what they all had in common was, they were following orders.
          and they obeyed.

          my guess is some of them … well lets just say their underlying personality meshed well with their job requirements.

          it is happening right here, right now.

  4. Jeffrey Zoar

    A lot of opinions that get posted here, both up top and in the comments, would get a person imprisoned in UK or Germany, among other places. It is probably just a matter of time before that becomes the case on these shores. Certainly there are many who would like to make it so.

    The other day, on another dissident site, I saw a post in the comments about how the poster would, hypothetically, go about committing mail in ballot fraud on behalf of R candidates. And I thought of Douglas Mackey. Seemed to me like anybody who wanted to could make a conspiracy case out of that one. After all, who would stick up for the accused? All they have to do is say he’s a “racist” and it’s case closed.

    Things to bear in mind as we shitpost. It’s probably best not to think out loud/larp like that

        @Steve S6
        Not in this case. Most (not all) 2A types are on board with Trumpenstein and his lickspittle love of pissrael and the chosen. If they were offered the opportunity to become deputized in order to fight Natzees they’d take it without question – happily patting themselves on the back keeping Merka ‘free’.
        In general, lots of gun owners around but few willing to pull the trigger!

    • saoirse

      “It is probably just a matter of time before that becomes the case on these shores.”
      Yep. It’s inevitable. They started with ‘hate crime’ legislation, then tossed in ‘hate speech’ to make it more all-encompassing. Running parallel, anti-‘anti-semitism’ laws have been fast-tracked and are now codified in many states. The jews and their lackeys have made these ‘special’, as witnessed by their precedent over all other enactments.
      This country WILL follow most of western Europe because most White people have abdicated their rights in favor of bread and circuses. You can see their compliant behavior on display daily as they welcome the draconian censorship. The willfully ignorant cowards think they’re fighting Natzees and anti-Merkun subversives.
      There is however some ‘noticing’ starting to occur. Doubtful it can snowball into a viable movement before the balloon goes up – if at all.

      • Mike_C

        “most White people have abdicated their rights in favor of bread and circuses”

        Yep (mostly; see below). The state of things when a goddamn Chinaman (that’d be me) is more of a white advocate and sees more clearly who is most responsible for the anti-whiteness, than probably 90% of whites in the US. The absolute fucking state of things.

        But I’m actually not black-pilled in this. I’m seeing a LOT more noticing over the last few years. And I think it’s going to increase as the economic situation gets worse. Right now there’s a lot of “preference falsification” (term of art basically meaning people say/act/vote what they think they are expected to say for social conformity reasons). I would not be surprised by an upcoming “preference cascade” (where people say and do what they really think, after they realize they’re not only not alone, but maybe in the majority).

        I don’t think most whites have sold out their birthright for bread and circuses. Instead, they’ve drunk the leftist (yes, that’s code) koolaid thinking they’re being fair, kind, decent by embracing the multiculti, negrolatry, and sexual deviance propaganda. They’ve been misled (and primed for it through deliberate hacking of the Christian operating system/ethos, mostly by the people who insist on hyphenating themselves right before “Christian”). Don’t write off these misguided persons. Help guide them back to reason. (Note I did NOT say “back to the fold”. I utterly reject the “we are sheep before a psychopathic desert god” mindset.) They are your brothers and sisters, your kin. There’s few enough of you in the world you can’t spare any, excepting only the worst, irredeemable cases.

        Anyway, I take Jeffrey’s points. They’re valid. But i let it “hang out there” (in real life) more than is strictly prudent exactly because I want people to see that they are NOT alone. “Mike noticed that Out Loud, and the sky didn’t fall on him.” Maybe some day it will. But I’ve literally had people come up to me (privately) and say, “I didn’t know anyone else thought like that,” or “I didn’t believe what you said, and I looked it up. It was true! Holy shit!” And of course that’s your opening. Cliché or not, hearts and minds, yeah?

        • saoirse

          You said:
          “I don’t think most whites have sold out their birthright for bread and circuses.” – then spent the next two paragraphs explaining how they did it. They wrote themselves off.
          I think the main difference between you and I is how many Whites can be salvaged.
          I’ve spent 30+ years in this game and learned, after maybe 15, that it’s useless talking to most Whites (approximately 90%) about the issues that plague our race and their root causes.
          When I say talking I mean going way beyond gutless republicunt, christian, paleo-cuntservative, capitalist, nationalist, pay-tree-ot etc. platforms because that’s where reality, hence the truth, resides.
          When you’re rebuffed by nine out of every ten people you approach (politely) over the course of 15+ years you realize that you’re wasting precious time that could be used to solidify your own (and like-minded cohorts) survival strategies.
          Regarding those rejections; most have been the cognitive dissonance kind but more than a few have resulted in threats of violence – three with the drawing of weapons. We have had enough of our “kin” and refuse to stick our necks out any longer for them!
          There are plenty of facts, supported by mountains of in-your-face evidence, in plain view (saturation point) to turn anyone ‘on the fence’ in the right direction – without having to have it pointed out by some coach. Seems like a given but it ain’t. Yes, the kikes and their lackeys have brainwashed them, but you don’t acquiesce to this point unless you’re a weak failure. These folks need to be culled not saved.
          Best of luck to anyone thinking otherwise. If you think there’s a great epiphany looming in the near future then it would be advisable to wait til the current paradigm collapses before sticking your own necks out to confirm it’s arrival!

          • old geezer

            fwiw, i’ve seen the same. it’s next to impossible for some one to admit their entire worldview has been wrong … for as long as they can remember.

  5. Don Curton

    One of my first thoughts, also mentioned elsewhere – he was buying the guns online at market prices, paying for shipping and FFL fees, then re-selling almost immediately at a gun show? Where you can literally walk another 5 feet over and cross-check prices? There’s no way he was making money unless he included a hefty surcharge for selling “privately”. That’s sketchy as shit right there.

    Another lovely thought (not my own) was that he was an ATF contact used to help frame cases for them. He decided to make a stink and that was that.

    That said, there are plenty of ways to serve a search warrant without killing someone. The ATF apparently decided to ignore them, much like Waco.

  6. Mike_C

    “would get a person imprisoned in UK or Germany”

    If only there was a solution to this free speech problem. A, um, lasting solution? Nope, that doesn’t sound right. Permanent? Terminal? Nope nope. A “fire-and-forget” solution? Now we’re definitely losing the thread. Hmmm. Penultimate? That’s close. Real close. But not quite there, somehow. Hmmm. Just can’t find the correct adjective. A real headscratcher, I’m sorry to admit.
