First, the truncated version of the original video. This is the one that has been making the rounds. I'll get to the full video in a bit, but soak this in for a moment. This person does in fact appear to be active duty military.
Understand that if active duty military actually get deployed within the United States that weapon is not just pointed at other people, other countries. It's pointed at you. If you do not get in your house when I tell you to, you become the enemy.
I'm just spitballing here, but I think active duty military personnel should probably talk about about things other than pointing weapons at American citizens. Really, anything else would be fine, the weather, sports, understanding white rage...
But what about the context?!?!? We need the context!!!
Yes, we do.
The context can be found in the full video which was originally posted by the Sergeant who goes by "Lord Daddy Nugget" on TikTok. I say "originally" because this is what you get now if you try to click on the link (just hours after it went up):
Funny how that happens.
In any case, it appears to still be available on Twitter. (Language Warning.)
As you can see, Lord Daddy Nugget was responding to a woman who had made her own video. Here's a screen cap. She's the one in the background.
This woman had a "message" for our military.
This is a message for our United States Military: The Air Force, the Army, the Navy, the Marines, Coast Guard, SpaceX...
Yeah, she said "SpaceX." Not exactly a big credibility builder. She might as well have added The Jedi Order and F-Troop.
In any case, her message was more of a question: Given that the military swears an oath to uphold the Constitution, "where are you?"
"You've got millions and millions of gun owners who are ready to walk out and start a complete #&$%@* blood bath. And we're beginning to wonder where our #&$%@* military is.
I would put this in the loon category, to be honest. People are rightfully upset, but, um, talking about the Coast Guard getting together with Elon Musk to support a citizen uprising, well, this is probably someone you would just nod at and smile as you slowly back away.
But no, Lord Daddy Nugget couldn't resist relishing in the thought of exactly what would happen were she to be deployed in the United States:
Your little good-ol'-boy system is not going to fare well for you.
As mentioned at the beginning, it is at this point where she starts speaking about your being the enemy as we quoted above. The basic point is that if active duty military gets deployed, they are probably not going to be your allies, they are probably going to be pointing the guns at you.
I have two reactions to this:
- It is absolutely outrageous for her to say such a thing.
- It is absolutely accurate for her to say such a thing.
As for my first reaction, having an active duty military person speak this way really is... unwise, particularly when you're responding to someone who's already pretty ginned up. While much of what Lord Daddy Nugget does on TikTok is intended to be humorous in a progressive snarky late-night-comedy non-funny way (think more clapter than laughter), it's an odd tone to strike when discussing such a horrific scenario. In fact, she says it with a bit too much enthusiasm for my taste. (More on that later.)
As for my second observation, well, yes. I certainly could see the military following orders and putting down a genuine insurrection. You know, one that involves bombs and guns and not Trump flags and selfie sticks.
Regardless, the elasticity with which our Constitution is viewed today would make it difficult for a soldier to even know whether or not the orders he or she has been given are lawful. Heck, you could argue most of the military actions we've been involved in in recent decades were not constitutional given the notable scarcity of formal congressional declarations of war.
Besides, if you were going to rise up against flagrant violations against the Constitution you should have started a long time ago, like 100 years, or at least since FDR's time. The Constitution's protections and limitations against large government have been shredded to the point that our founders would find today's federal government either unrecognizable, or all-too recognizable given what they were trying to avoid.
And you can't credibly claim to have a small government with limited powers when you have federal spending (never mind adding in state and local) consistently comprising more than a third of the economy (sometimes much more) since the days when disco ruled the airwaves and Bruce Jenner was on a box of Wheaties and not the cover of Vanity Fair.
And given that the military's command structure, and increasingly its enlisted ranks, are fully woke anyway, I don't see them having any compunction about pointing guns at you if ordered to do so.
Our Lord Daddy Nugget here is a great example. Her TikTok videos are like listening to a Robin Diangelo audiobook as narrated by Rachel Maddow. She particularly likes calling out white people for being racist but occasionally takes a break from that to do things like point out to a black woman that she's been "programmed." I can't (and probably shouldn't anyway) embed a TikTok video, but the link is here.
This is the woman she whitesplains to.
But throughout that ten-video rant I noticed one thing, and I hate to be the one to have to tell you this, but you are programmed. You are programmed by the same whitewashing of history that I was also programmed in.
She says it with such feigned sorrow, too. It really is quite the performance.
It took many years for me to deprogram that $#%@.
We should linger on this for just a moment. This is what CRT is. This is what all those race-baiting corporate anti-racism seminars are for. This is what is going on in the education system, public, private, religious, and the entire university system.
Lord Daddy Nugget is a product of those efforts, and an intentional one.
Her videos are such an endless stream of woke virtue signaling, regurgitating and recycling CRT talking points about white supremacy, structural racism, and on and on, that you really have to stop and wonder just how dependable she would be should she be called upon to defend us from a foreign enemy.
I mean, domestic, we know she's ready for, almost eager, to turn that gun around. But foreign? Is she really going to lay down her life for a white supremacist structurally racist country?
Getting back to the video we started with, this is how she ends it.
Martial Law. You know, where your rights get curtailed. You don't have all those same freedoms that the Constitution guarantees at that point. So be careful what you wish for. And stop opining about things you don't understand.
She found this part particularly amusing.
Put that on a recruitment poster.
The good news is, we're not there yet. The sacrifice of those Marines in Kabul is a testament to the bravery, and honor of our military. It's something genuinely precious, and we might be in danger of losing it.
