Is Dr. Ignatius Piazza a Racist?

September 28th, 2009  

Last Monday’s Blog, “My Debt of Gratitude” literally overwhelmed my personal mail box with letters of thanks from those who rallied in towns and cities around the country or marched on Washington DC on September 12.

It also brought me some hate mail from people calling me a racist!

Well here is my response…

When I asked them why in the world they would call me a racist over “My Debt of Gratitude” Blog post they responded that my reference to the “Million Man March” and “Obama’s Inauguration” indicated I was a racist!


Just for the record, my reference to the Million Man March and Obama’s Inauguration was due to the fact that those two gatherings were PREVIOUSLY the LARGEST gatherings as compared to the historic 9/12 March on Washington DC.

So for anyone suggesting that I am a racist, let me advise that I am not. I do not care from what race Front Sight’s students, members, or instructors may be. As long as you are a responsible, law-abiding individual with no history of mental illness or substance abuse, Front Sight stands ready, willing, and able to provide you with a level of training that far exceeds military and law enforcement standards.

We have been doing this for 12 straight years and doubling our organization every year.

Let me further advise those who are so quick to play the “race card” that when jumping to such unsupported conclusions, YOU appear to be a buffoon (and a racist) in the likeness of Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson!

And speaking of the size of the 9/12 demonstration, there seem to be people who feel the numbers were exaggerated. Well, not by me. The media has the numbers of the gathering ranging all over the board. I simply reported what was reported to me BY NUMEROUS, UNRELATED  PEOPLE IN THE MARCH who were told by the National Park Police that it was the biggest gathering they had ever seen with the size of the group estimated at over 2 million people.

When you consider the numbers of people participating in 9/12 Rallies in cities and towns across the country the overall numbers were even greater.

Either way, IT WAS A BIG MARCH!

So here is the original blog post that resulted in words of thanks and praise flooding my inbox, right along with a some folks calling me a racist.

And make sure that if you attended any of the local Rallies or Marched on Washington DC on September 12, make sure you take advantage of my sincere thanks and gift of gratitude as outlined in this blog.

Here is last week’s blog:

I owe a debt of gratitude to over two million of my fellow American patriots and I intend to pay that debt in a manner that has never been done in the history of our country.

As the Founder and Director of Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, an organization that has doubled every year for 12 straight years and is on track to double again this year, my duties often prevent me from physically being where I would like to be.

September 12, 2009 was one of those days.

While Front Sight was training upwards of 500 students on our 550 acre facility near Las Vegas, Nevada that weekend, 2 MILLION of our fellow patriots descended on Washington DC to send a peaceful, yet strong message to our current government.

And even more patriots across America participated in local Tea Party demonstrations.

Of course, the mainstream news media barely mentioned this historic, record-breaking demonstration of the silent majority. If they did mention it all, they referred to “thousands” of demonstrators instead of the MILLIONS who sacrificed their time and money to travel to Washington DC so our politicos could witness a gathering of discontent that dwarfed the Million Man March and President Obama’s Inauguration.

I wish I could have been there.

Since I could not personally make the trip, I am going to reward those who participated in 9/12 Tea Party demonstrations, in an unprecedented manner.

You can also show your thanks to the millions of patriots who represented us in such an admirable way by simply spreading this message far and wide.

Please forward this message to all the Tea Party Organizers, conservative talk show hosts in America, and everyone you know, asking them all to do the same so each man, woman, and child who participated in the 9/12 Tea Party demonstrations can learn of my reward for them and take full advantage of my “THANK YOU.”

Before I share with you the “Thank You” I have created for our Millions of Patriots, see some of the photos from the historic 9/12 March on Washington DC…


My absolute favorite signs:

unnarmed teaparty

Now here is what I am asking you to do to help me reward the millions of people you see in these photos.

Please forward this blog to all the conservative talk show hosts in America and ask them to spread the word that I have a $17,000 Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, Lifetime Membership for every man and woman who participated in 9/12 Tea Party demonstrations or the 9/12 March on Washington, DC.

Please forward this blog to everyone you know and ask them to forward it to everyone they know so we can get the word out to those who marched and give them the opportunity to take advantage of my way of saying, “Thanks for standing up for us in such an exemplary manner!”

Here is how I want to reward ANYONE and EVERYONE who participated in the September 12, 2009 Tea Party demonstrations or the March on Washington, DC:

I have created a special Front Sight Firearms Training Lifetime Membership that I am calling the FRONT SIGHT 9/12 LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP in honor of those who participated in the 9/12 Tea Party demonstrations or marched on Washington DC, September 12, 2009.

I have hand selected our most popular firearms training courses. These are the courses that Front Sight students cherish most and attend repeatedly throughout their lives.

The FRONT SIGHT 9/12 LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP provides the following benefits:

  • Attend the following courses Free of Charge and As Many Times As You Wish FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE:

    With a Front Sight 9/12 Lifetime Membership you have the opportunity to achieve a level of self defense, Skill at Arms that most people could spend and entire career in the military or law enforcement and still not receive.

    This is not marketing hype. There is a good reason why Marine Corps officers, and law enforcement firearms instructors become members at Front Sight… It’s because we can provide them with more consistent and expert firearms training than they get from their own agencies.

    And when you become a Front Sight 9/12 Lifetime Member you will get to train right along side our nation’s finest peacekeepers and warriors helping build a lifelong bond between the law-abiding armed citizens who are the backbone of our country’s defense and the brave men and women who place themselves in harm’s way on a daily basis to protect and serve our nation.

  • You will also receive 2 Front Sight Course Certificates… that you can sell, transfer or donate to anyone who has not yet attended a course at Front Sight. Certificates good for one person to attend a Four Day Defensive Handgun, Tactical Shotgun, or Practical Rifle Course. Two people may use the same certificate to attend a Two Day Defensive Handgun, Tactical Shotgun, or Practical Rifle Course. Certificates have NO EXPIRATION.This benefit is a GREAT way to start your entire family on the road to safe and responsible firearms expertise or introduce your friends to the fabulous experience that awaits them at Front Sight. Either way, you will be a hero in their eyes for taking it upon yourself to get them Front Sight trained!
  • Guaranteed Placement in Your Courses with Two Weeks Advance Enrollment… No worries about whether you can “get into a course.” As a member your spot is guaranteed. Just fax or e-mail your Application for Training within two weeks of the course date and you are in! Like everything else we offer, no other school can offer you such flexibility with your scheduling!
  • Invitation to Annual July 4th Lifetime Members’ Reunion Celebration… So you and your family can celebrate July 4th each year in a manner that makes our Founding Fathers proud!
  • Name etched in the Front Sight Lifetime Members’ Monument… So generations from now, your grand kids will know you were part of the patriotic group who built Front Sight!
  • Password to access exclusive and restricted Lifetime Members area of web site and e-mail forum… Now you can positively converse with all of our like minded First Family members!
  • Front Sight Lifetime Member Card and Hat… Identifying you to all students and staff as a loyal and supportive patriot assisting us in positively changing the image of gun ownership in our lifetime!

What is the Value of this Front Sight 9/12 Lifetime Membership?

As you know, the cost of a Four Day Course alone at Front Sight is $2,000 and a Two Day Course is $1,000.

If you were to simply attend each course in your 9/12 Lifetime Membership just ONCE, the value is $13,000! Plus the two, Front Sight Course Certificate your receive provides another $4,000 in value for a total value of $17,000!

We know you won’t attend each course JUST ONCE! We know you will attend them all multiple times! Especially the Handgun Skill Builder, Advanced Tactical Handgun and Handgun Combat Master Prep Courses. After attending all the courses, the Skill Builder, Advanced Tactical Handgun, and Combat Master Prep course will quickly become your favorites! We know this after watching thousands of students attend our courses….

We also know what you will be saying to yourself and everyone who will listen back home…

The most common words we hear students say after the FIRST DAY of their FIRST COURSE is “I cannot believe how much I did not know!”

The most common words we hear from students after the SECOND DAY of their FIRST COURSE is, “I cannot believe how much I am learning!”

The most common words we hear from students after the THIRD DAY of their FIRST COURSE is “I can’t wait to bring my family and friends back with me!”

And the most common words we hear from students after the FOURTH DAY of their FIRST COURSE is “I can’t believe there is so much more to learn! I’m coming back for every course on my membership and bringing a different gun each time!”

Don’t take our word for it, click here and let members who recently attended courses at Front Sight tell you in their own words…

Get the Flash Player to see this player.

So if you attend each course JUST ONCE (which we know you won’t) you get $17,000 in value… If you attend each course multiple times with different weapons (which we know you will do as much as possible) the value of your 9/12 Lifetime Memberships exceeds $40,000!

Why am I doing this?

Because I want to thank the millions of people who participated in the Tea Party Rallies by training them to a LEVEL OF SKILL AT ARMS THAT FAR EXCEEDS LAW ENFORCEMENT AND MILITARY STANDARDS– and I can do it — in a caring and compassionate manner, without any boot camp mentality or drill instructor attitudes.

How does this work for Front Sight?

Because each time you return home you will tell everyone you know about what a great time you had at Front Sight and each time you return to Front Sight you will bring another family member or friend with you and help us grow our organization and strengthen the backbone of America!

So if you were one of the millions of patriots who marched on Washington, DC or participated in a Tea Party Rally on September 12, 2009 you are going to get $17,000 to over $40,000 of value out of your Front Sight 9/12 Lifetime Membership and we are going to get a lifetime of your good will, good words and great referrals– and the satisfaction of knowing we put real teeth into the Second Amendment by training you to levels that exceed law enforcement and military standards.

So What’s the Catch?

There is no catch.

None whatsoever.

My hundreds of thousands of students call me the Millionaire Patriot because over the last 13 years I have literally given away millions of dollars in free and discounted training to assist responsible and law abiding Americans in securing the level of skill at arms that our Founding Fathers envisioned for Americans– skill at arms equal to or superior to any standing army.

Because I was so impressed with the way millions of my fellow patriots conducted themselves across America, I want to reward them in a way that only I can.

So instead of the Front Sight 9/12 Lifetime Membership having a cost of $17,000 or $12,000, or $5,000 or $2,500 or even $1,000… I am effectively giving this 9/12 LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP away at THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS BELOW MY COST!

I’m doing this so each and ever one of the millions of patriots who sacrificed their time and money to represent me and the rest of America’s like minded gun owners in the historic 9/12 Tea Party Rallies and March on Washington DC can have the opportunity to become Front Sight trained for life and liberty!

Here is what I mean:

Front Sight 9/12 Lifetime Membership

Total cost: a single payment $912.00

That’s right! Only $912 for a lifetime of training in our 9 most popular two day and four day courses!

All you have to do is complete the Secure On-Line Enrollment Form and your 9/12 Lifetime Membership will be priority mailed to you within a week and you can begin taking courses immediately. I even pay the shipping!

If you were one of the millions of patriots who participated in the 9/12 demonstrations across America then PLEASE allow me to show my thanks and provide you with a lifetime of training in handgun, shotgun and rifle– training that will leave you with a skill at arms that exceeds our own military and law enforcement community.

I look forward to seeing you at Front Sight as a 9/12 Lifetime Member and look forward to seeing those you refer to us as well.

And if you were like me, and were not able to participate in the Tea Party Rallies then PLEASE forward this blog to all the Tea Party Organizers, every conservative talk show host in America, and everyone you know and ask them all to spread this message far and wide so we can honor and thank those who did march on our behalf.

Thank you for your efforts to assist me in spreading the word.

I will keep this offer open until midnight, Friday, October 16 so everyone who participated in the 9/12 Tea Party demonstrations or march on Washington, DC have the opportunity to take advantage of it.
