22 Feb Buyer Beware: Never Go Full Benchmade by Bill Buppert
Publisher’s Note: Just remember that you have approximately 700 shopping days until the Mango Mussolini may lose to the other socialists in the largest voter fraud yet in 2020.
Stock up while you can.
And train like your life depends on it…
Communism is a human neurological software virus. As Christopher Hitchens wrote in 2007 in “God is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything”:
“When I was a Marxist, I did not hold my opinions as a matter of faith, but I did have the conviction that a sort of unified field theory might have been discovered. The concept of historical and dialectical materialism was not an absolute, and it did not have any supernatural element, but it did have its messianic element in the idea that an ultimate moment might arrive, and it most certainly had its martyrs and saints and doctrinaires and (after a while) its mutually excommunicating rival papacies. It also had its schisms and inquisitions and heresy hunts. I was a member of a dissident sect, which admired Rosa Luxemburg and Leon Trotsky, and I can say definitely that we also had our prophets…Those of us who had a sort of rational alternative for religion had reached a terminus which was comparably dogmatic.”
As Arthur Koestler wrote in the seminal “The God That Failed”:
“Something had clicked in my brain, which shook me like a mental explosion. To say that one had ‘seen the light’ is a poor description of the mental rapture which only the convert knows…The new light seems to pour from all directions across the skull; the whole universe falls into a pattern like the stray pieces of a jigsaw puzzle assembled by magic at one stroke. There is now an answer to every question, doubts and conflicts are a matter of the tortured past.”
C.K. Ryan recently penned this gem:
“These days, when I see that copy of “Das Kapital “on my shelf, my mind turns not to its author, but to Socrates. For during my years as a Marxist, I lost touch with the philosopher’s greatest insight: “I neither know nor think I know.” Socrates was the smartest man in Athens because he recognized his ignorance. It is perhaps the oldest lesson that philosophy has to teach us, yet so many of us have forgotten it.”
Political cults are caravans to mass graves and fortunately all politics has a shelf life, some folks just like to put the pedal to the metal when it comes to scrambling over the ideological cliff for their masters.
The current infantcide cavalcade is yet another unmasking of the true intentions of the communists as they press ahead with their evil agenda. Just ask them one question: …if your moral framework allows you to maim, dismember and murder the most innocent, vulnerable and defenseless among us, what exactly does your moral compass stop you from doing?
Burn this into your skulls and sear it into your brain: the quaint term “Deep State” is nothing more than a civilized synonym for communism.
Manhood is the sole brake on communism whether you like it or not. My friend Boston does a brilliant disquisition on this.
Pleasant dreams, Helots. -BB
I am enjoying the mass exodus from supporting the cretins at Benchmade.
Like the Billion Dollar PR lesson for United Airlines when they dragged a paying passenger off a plane, Benchmade out of Oregon yelled “hold my beer” and tried to practice some extreme of backwards customer service.
Of course, the airlines continue the practice. On domestic airlines , you’re an inmate, on international flights with foreign flagged airlines you are still treated like a paying customer.
Anyway, I wonder at how many more “tacticool” companies are snickering like the commies at BM at taking money from the gun and knife enthusiasts and supporting government weapons-grabbing collectivists with the proceeds.
Funny how their fondling of coproach genitalia led to the discovery of their political donations. Don’t they know that fraternizing with the police never advances freedom? But then again, serendipity can be a bitch for commies in patriotic drag.
I am underwhelmed by BM quality and own very few. Benchmade has had rotten QC for the last decade or so. Off-center blades, wobbly locks, breaking springs, gaps between bolsters/scales/back-spacers, asymmetrical grinds and edge bevels. And they take the moniker of “handmade” to a new fabricated level. And you pay a high price for these.
I wish folks with time on their hands would do the public records research to see what these collectivist vermin are donating to. We know that the geniuses at Bag of Dicks and Leatherman have been worshiping at the disarmament altar for awhile. Leatherman, Gerber, CRKT, Kershaw/ZT, and Benchmade are all produced near the Portland area and Zero Tolerance knives have been my top pick for years for a quality folder. I do hope revelations don’t reveal a government supremacist contagion in the water there that turns knife businesses into communist pod combines.
I always wonder at the curious phenomenon of a tool or outdoor company thinking that socialist justice virtue signalling will garner more sales. How many of the soi-boi legions actually spend the money on the middle-tier knife offerings like Benchmade?
Sort of like the other C-Suite vermin at the aforementioned companies spitting in the faces of their own clientele like Dick’s and Field and Stream...
At least we know as crazy as Lynn Thompson is, Cold Steel will never go full Benchmade. You never go full Benchmade.
Maybe we’ll discover in a curious moment of enlightened seppuku they donated to the Labor commies in the UK to help ban knives too.
Benchmade: “Another feature people love but don’t really use is the lifetime warranty and sharpening.”
Free markets have so many attributes that make them adaptable and ultimately superior to government when it comes to quality goods and services. You choose who you support.
Can everyone just break the knives and call on the lifetime warranty? Asking for a friend…
PSA for Benchmade: BFYTW.
As Pete says at WRSA: “Stop spending your money with businesses that want you dead.”
