Cooper is to Suarez as Jefferson is to Marx
Col. Cooper: Let us reflect upon the fact that a man who covers his face shows reason to be ashamed of what he is doing. A man who takes it upon himself to shed blood while concealing his identity is a revolting perversion of the warrior ethic. It has long been my conviction that a masked man with a gun is a target. I see no reason to change that view. [Emphasis mine - K]
By contrast, here is a bit of Gabe Suarez ideology: When I was on SWAT our view is that "We will always win....even if we have to burn down your entire house by bombing it....we will win". Period.
Followed by this gem from Gabe: Notice that I have not even gotten into the "right or wrong" discussion. Why not? Because it is not relevant.
This Suarez topic has many in our community growling. I think this is because Gabe's recent posts wonderfully articulate the differences between Patriots who genuinely love Liberty and our Countrymen who cherish the coin of the King and choose to feed Ego at the expense of innocents. Gabe helps put a face on one aspect of our national shame.
Here's a piece by Ursus Minor that articulates the conversation well.
And here is a piece sent to me by The Great and Wonderful Zoomie that fits nicely with our topic.
Stand and be counted, folks. Silence is now consent. Do not let any insult to your Liberty pass without protest, even if your only protest is on a blog or the ballot box. We must raise the volume on our discontent.
We are all in that time when we shall choose to be Free men at Liberty or forever crouch to lick the hands that feed us.
