Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy said the NRA was a terrorists
organization. This slander may shock most of us, but I wonder what took
Governor Malloy so long. Malloy and the Democrats have run out of ideas.
Their democrat controlled states are failing and shrinking. US citizens
pack up and vote with their feet. They flee the failed democrat
policies that drove out jobs and ruined lives. Now, Governor Malloy
announces his newly discovered terrorist threat. Democrats told us that
Trump is Hitler, republicans are Nazis, and the NRA and its members are terrorists who kill children. Those are the words of desperate politicians and dangerous men.
would a Democrat governor call the NRA and its supporters terrorists?
One answer is ignorance. Most people don’t know that the NRA is the nation’s largest source of firearms safety training. The NRA has the largest program in the world that teaches children’s safety around guns. By
calling me and the NRA terrorists, the failing Democrats are presenting
ideas that are popular with their shrinking base of support. Democrat
politicians are also saying what the mainstream media, the public
relations wing of today’s Socialist party, wants to hear.
that name-calling with the actions of a growing and vibrant political
party. A growing political movement plays to the middle in order to
attract new members. A growing party reaches out independents and
centrists. That certainly isn’t what the Democrats are doing today.
democrats the mainstream media say “Let’s try Socialism.” I’m sure that
today’s big-government intellectuals are sincere in their desire to try
the same old idea of Socialism. The Democrat politicians are desperate
for any distraction that will take attention away from their growing
lists of failures.
The shining star in the Democrat constellation
has to be the failing city of Chicago. The Windy City was once the city
with broad shoulders, the city that worked for a living. Chicago was
once the home to middle-class americans and thriving industry. Chicago
was a vibrant multi-ethnic melting pot when I lived there. Today the
working class has been driven out of Chicago and out of Illinois by
Democrat policies. Now, Chicago is populated by illegal immigrants and
those who are too old or too poor to escape.
Chicago isn’t alone.
Add Detroit, Baltimore, Saint Louis, Los Angeles and the Bay Area to the
lists of proud Democrat failures. The Democrats say that these cities
failed because their great Democrat public policies were not executed
strongly enough. We’re told that the rest of the United States should be
more like them. Frankly, that is hard for us to believe.
failures were laid bare by the Trump recovery. Today, the Democrat
politicians are desperate for a new distraction. The NRA supported
President Trump in his election victory over Secretary Hillary Clinton.
That makes the NRA an obvious political target for the Democrats and
their mainstream media.
There is another reason to attack the
NRA. Owning a gun is one of the strongest predictors of political
affiliation. Firearms ownership is ahead of sex, age, race, or religion
in predicting your political beliefs. Calling the NRA and its members a
bunch of baby-killing terrorists is simply calling core republicans
terrorists. It justifies the media’s global war on conservatives. That
slander comes as a surprise to the growing number of women and racial
minorities who recently became gun owners and joined the NRA. Gun
ownership moved mainstream. That threatens the extremists Democrats.
political conservatives is an old tactic. The Democrats, the so called
party of tolerance and diversity, has used every political manipulation
to shut down free associations like the NRA. NRA banquets and
educational events are cancelled after businesses get blackballed by
local democrat political machines. It happens. Look it up for yourself.
reason for this latest political attack could be more deeply political
and self-serving for certain politicians. Perhaps this latest attack is
in retaliation for the Trump Justice Department’s recent release of
records from the Obama Administration. We’re still getting documents
about Obama’s gun running to Mexico called Operation Fast and Furious.
We haven’t seen all the records from the IRS witch hunts against
conservative political organizations. Those releases put the political
future of Attorney General Erik Holder at risk. It might put Holder in
jail. It certainly leaves Obama’s legacy at risk. I want to see those
records, and so do most of us. The NRA was vocal in its condemnation of
Holder’s gun running.
This condemnation of the NRA is also a
tantrum that simply makes the Democrats feel better. Obama’s economics
failed the rest of us. Of course Obama’s Chicago style corruption worked
out well for Barack and Hillary. They banked millions of dollars by
selling political favors access while the rest of us searched for
part-time jobs. The Trump recovery showed that welfare and part-time
work are not the new normal as the Democrats claimed. That has to hurt
if you are a loyal democrat.
Those failed Democrat economic ideas
are only one part of a long list of failure. We are told that the NRA
kills children, while we’re asked to ignore the atrocities of Planned
Parenthood. Democrats call for unrestricted immigration while they also
tell us that greater levels of welfare are necessary for the unemployed.
Democrats say we should end drug prohibition because it failed, while
at the same telling us that firearms prohibition will succeed. Democrats
claim that gun prohibition will keep guns out of criminals hands, while
our unsecured borders deliver billions of dollars of drugs to our inner
cities. That magical thinking doesn’t make sense.
More and more
of us noticed the Democrat dependence on magic. It gets harder and
harder for the mainstream media to spin democrat press releases as
You resort to slander and name-calling when you’re out of ideas.
this next fact to the din of cognitive dissonance coming from the
Democrats. They are trying to both rewrite history and to repeat it. The
same people who said that Trump is Hitler and conservatives are Nazis
are now the loudest voices calling to disarm minorities. I’ve read what
happened after the Nazis disarmed the Jews and “undesirables” in Nazi
Germany. Many of us won’t allow genocide to happen again. If you doubt
me, then I have to remind you that the NRA helped arm and train the
civil rights movement in the 1950s. That is the proud record of the
organization the Democrats now call terrorists. I am one of them.
Please pay close attention to what the democrats say and do. Desperate politicians will try almost anything.
