The Modern Sons of Doeg

Mike Vanderboegh was scheduled to give this speech at a Washington state rally in support of wrongly “detained” activist Anthony Bosworth. Weather and (participants suspect) other more unaccountable factors prevented Mike from reaching Washington to deliver it.

It’s very much in the spirit of The Zelman Partisans. So go. Read it. Here’s a sample. The story begins with Doeg, chief herdsman, willing agent, and liar-in-chief to the paranoid King Saul. Everything that follows is from Mike.

Excerpts from The Sons of Doeg by Mike Vanderboegh

….So Saul, already more than half crazy from fear and jealously, acted on Doeg’s lie and summoned the High Priest and his entire company and, in a rage, ordered them all killed. As the King James version states:

And the king said unto the footmen that stood about him, Turn, and slay the priests of the LORD; because their hand also is with David, and because they knew when he fled, and did not shew it to me. But the servants of the king would not put forth their hand to fall upon the priests of the LORD. And the king said to Doeg, Turn thou, and fall upon the priests. And Doeg the Edomite turned, and he fell upon the priests, and slew on that day fourscore and five persons that did wear a linen ephod.

Get that? Doeg, knowing it based on his own lie, killed 85 of the high priests of Israel BY HIMSELF. Now, the first thing you can conclude from that is that the priests should have been open-carrying. This verse is one of the most powerful indictment of arms control ever written. But that was not enough for Saul.

Note too that the King’s other retainers refused to obey the massacre orders. Only Doeg was willing to carry it out and carry it out he did with a vengeance. And this was millennia before the Nuremberg defense — “I was only acting on orders.”


Surely Doeg must have had some help from sycophantic like-minded butchers for such an undertaking, although the Bible is silent on the subject. But when my brother mentioned the story of Doeg the willing executioner I could not help but think of all the other sons and grandsons of Doeg throughout history down through the ages to the Holocaust and, 22 years ago, to the massacre of the Davidians, their old men, women and children, by bullets and fire, first at the hands of the ATF and finally from the even bloodier hands of the FBI.

There are murderous spiritual sons of Doeg in every generation. Men — and women — who will play the part of the secret policeman, the assassin of the king, the willing toady of power — not because it is right but simply because it IS the power. Such sons of Doeg attacked Anthony Bosworth. Such sons of Doeg confront us here today — not merely in the open, but play the part of the clandestine spy, the lying snitch, the evil agent provocateur — and they know who they are, these evil men.

Many remember the self-destructive story of King Saul. Few remember the tale of Doeg, yet it is the sons of Doeg that we confront most often, most directly, those of us who wish to preserve our liberty, our property and our lives.

  1. “Weather and (participants suspect) other more unaccountable factors prevented Mike from reaching Washington to deliver it.”
    Several points. First, this is pure conspiracy theory mongering. If something doesnt work out, there isn’t something nefarious about it. The government isn’t lurking behind every forecaster trying to get Mike.
    Second, it worked out that Mike didn’t give this speech as he shouldn’t be teaching Sunday School especially using the KJV. He forgot to mention that the powers that be aware ordained by God.
    Third, Bosworth is an agitator. He would be better served working more and providing his family with a higher standard of living than giving the anti-gun movement ammunition with stunts like this.

        1. None are perfect, each will do as he or she can although I don’t recall hearing any exploits of your own.

          I suppose each must find his or her own courage as they can, some more than others…

          It would seem that the ire of the Marxists is that their arguments Ad Hominem are so easily seen and with no reasonable prepositions one must resort to mere attacks upon the person. The use of logical fallacy is not a very good way to express your concerns. At least try not to merely rationalize your position as an alternative to reality.

        2. What a relief! I’m sure glad to know that every decision I make and every action I take is ordained by God.

          I mean, it’s not like I’m saying I’m not responsible – it’s just that I’m on “a mission from God”! So, don’t judge me bro’.

          All you Davids out there – don’t take a clue from the Biblical, real David. If and when I show up at your place, I’ll be expecting you to roll over and and follow my orders.

          But really, thanks for the ideas. First thing, get a badge.

    1. David B sez:

      He forgot to mention that the powers that be aware ordained by God.

      Was this a typo intended to read “were” where you keyed in the word “aware”? …and if so, was this reference to Divine Right of Kings meant seriously or no? The intarwebs are infamous for their poor conveyance of facetiousness so one can never be sure…


    2. Hmm gone as abruptly as he appeared. No doubt he has more heartfelt concerns to raise in the comments sections of other blogs wherein the topics of I-594, Mr. Bow Tie, or his prominent critics are under discussion.

      Godspeed sir.
