Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
- These events never work out the way the fake news media want them to. – President Trump, as promised, visited the ravaged island of Puerto Rico on Tuesday, and everyone at CNN and NBC was horrified to see him enthusiastically received by grateful Puerto Ricans. San Juan’s Marxist Mayor Cruz wore spiked heels to the joint briefing with the President, and no one at Vanity Fair or the New York times tossed a fit about it. Go figure.
- In other news, I had an email from a lefty friend late yesterday, an email that ended with an expression of this person’s feeling that “we really need to have a national dialogue about guns.” That sounded suspiciously like the leftist talking point started by Tom Brokaw Monday morning and parroted by pretty much every Democrat politician and fake journalist who can still utter coherent sentences – which obviously excludes Nancy Pelosi – but I didn’t say that to this person.
- Instead, my reply was very brief: “Ok, I’ll start. You can’t have my guns. Great talk.” Thus, my lefty friend may now be just a lefty acquaintance, I’m not sure, since I never got a reply. I suppose I’ll find out in due time.
- But whatever, this is really the only reply conservatives can offer to lefties on this subject, for one simple reason: the leftist heart is not pure on this subject. Well, ok, the leftist heart is not pure on any subject, but on gun control it is especially not pure.
- This lack of purity of intentions becomes manifestly obvious every time we have a tragic event like the Las Vegas massacre, and every leftwinger in the country knee jerks to offering logic-devoid sophistries about the “need for more gun control” before we even know the name of the maniac who perpetrated the act, much less anything about his background or how he acquired his weapons.
- The Las Vegas shooter is a great example of leftists’ lockstep refusal to deal with facts. Due to his work history, which included stints at the U.S. Postal Service, the IRS and a defense contractor, and in the process of legally acquiring his massive stash of firearms, we now know this scumbag somehow managed to pass more than 30 FBI background checks during his life. He obtained his guns in states with some of the most restrictive gun laws in the country, dotted every ‘I’, crossed every ‘T’, and was able to accumulate an arsenal. Yet I heard half a dozen leftwing idiot politicians, such as the execrable valor thief Richard Blumenthal, talk about the need for more background checks when obtaining firearms. Which part of “30 FBI background checks” do you not understand, Senator?
- But of course, Blumenthal gets a pass from the fake news media, which is uniformly parroting the same false narrative, because enhanced background checks are not the real agenda here. If you give Blumenthal his enhanced background checks, and give Chuck Schumer his desire to outlaw “bump stocks”, then the next time there is a mass shooting perpetrated by some guy who passed all the background checks to legally acquire his firearms, Dick and Chuck are just going to come back wanting something else that won’t have any effect other than robbing law-abiding citizens of more of their freedoms.
- Note to all conservatives thinking about offering concessions to these people: The real agenda is LEFTISTS WANT TO TAKE YOUR GUNS AWAY FROM YOU. That’s it. That’s where they all want to go, that’s what is in their hearts and minds, and everything they do and say related to this issue is designed to get them to that point.
- If you gave Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders 30 seconds to be dictator of America, the one thing he or she would get done in that 30 seconds would be to rescind the 2nd Amendment and send an army of jack-booted, bullet-proof vest-wearing, ironically gun-toting thugs into your home to forcibly take away all of your guns and leave you defenseless. Because leftists believe that only the jack-booted, bullet-proof vest wearing, ironically gun-toting thugs loyal to them should be able to tote guns in our society.
- And don’t think this is really about preventing atrocities like what took place in Las Vegas Sunday. Hell, if it was about that, they’d be trying to ban big white trucks, since a radical Islamic terrorist killed 86 people in Nice last year with a big white truck.
- This is about control. Not gun control, just control. Leftists want to control you. They think they are smarter than you, better than you, know better than you do how you should live your life, and think they should be able to dictate all of that to you. They honestly do. This is how their minds work. It’s how they are wired.
- This is the real nature of leftism: It’s a mental disorder. Throughout the history of the 20th and 21st centuries, the implementation of leftism in any society has inevitably led to a violent end. Venezuela is just the latest in a very long line of nations to sadly experience this inevitable progression. The first two steps in such a progression are always 1) the government takeover of the news media, which was already 90% achieved during the Obama Administration, and 2) the disarming of the public.
- Guess where we are in that progression?
- Offering concessions to these people is no different than offering concessions to Lenin, or Hitler, or Mao, or Castro or Hugo Chavez: The next time there’s an incident, they’re always going to want more concessions, and every concession is just one more step down the road to their ultimate, true goal.
- So stop it. Just stop.
That is all.
