Hat/Tip to Brandon Darby at Breitbart.

So the murderous regime that is the Chinese government is now seeing fit to lecture us on the 2nd Amendment.

The Chinese state-controlled media’s statement, titled “Innocent Blood Demands No Delay for US Gun Control,” is primarily focused on the Newtown tragedy in which 26 Americans were killed by a mad gunman. Twenty of the victims were young children.

The Chinese government stated, “Their blood and tears demand no delay for the U.S. gun control.”

It would seem that the Chinese powers that be feel that they need to engage in propaganda to subvert freedom. So they tell of tragic episodes when deranged people use a gun as their choice of weapon to slaughter innocent people, but they leave out the parts of the stories where lawful gun owners put an end to the shooters’ rampages.

In an apparent effort to restrict information to their populace, the Chinese government wrote of a number of US mass shootings but failed to mention they were either stopped by a citizen legally carrying a firearm or otherwise only occurred in the controversial gun-free zones that critics say make prime targets for madmen.

The Chinese government states:

The past six months have seen enough shooting rampages in the United States. Just three days ago, three people were shot dead at a shopping mall in Oregon. Two weeks ago, a football player shot his girlfriend dead and then committed suicide. Five months ago, 12 people were killed and 58 wounded in a shooting spree at a midnight screening of a Batman film in Colorado.

The government went on to express a strong dislike of the National Rifle Association while also attacking the Republican Party as somehow complicit in the violence. Conversely, the article heaps praise on the Democratic Party:

The Clinton government launched a series of gun control policies at the end of last century. And the Democrats lost the Congressional election in 1994 and the presidential election in 2000, with the shadow of the NRA present in both defeats.

Isn’t it ironic that a regime known for the slaughter and genocide of TENS OF MILLIONS of innocents is in favor of taking away the right to bear arms?

The current Chinese government, the communist People’s Republic of China, was established in a revolution led by Mao Zedong, who killed an estimated 40-70 million people with starvation, executions, and re-education camps.

Man Told To Remove His NRA Instructor Hat Before Being Allowed To Vote

Hat/Tip to Chuck Ross at The Daily Caller.

In Georgia, as he was early voting, a man named Bundy Cobb was told to remove his hat before being allowed to vote.

While he was early voting on Friday, a Douglasville, Georgia man says he was asked to remove a hat he wears everywhere, one that reads “NRA Instructor,” because poll workers said it was too closely associated with the Republican party.

Bundy Cobb, who is certified by the National Rifle Association in firearms training, wears the hat in part to promote his business, True Aim Defense. But poll workers apparently saw it as something different.

“I went by the first two ladies, and they didn’t say anything. And then the next lady, she said ‘sir, you’re going to have to take off your hat,’” Cobb recalled in an interview with The Daily Caller.

“What are you talking about?” Cobb said he replied.

Cobb, who is a veteran, says he looked down the voting line and saw another man with a hat on. “What’s the difference between his hat and mine?” Cobb asked.

That’s when workers told him that his NRA hat was perceived as being associated with the GOP and that he couldn’t wear it near the voting booth.

Upon being contacted, the local board of elections supervisor cited a rather vague court case as justification of Mr. Cobb being told to remove his hat.

Laurie Fulton, the Douglas County board of elections supervisor, explained that the decision was made out of an abundance of caution.

“The courts have found that anything that suggests associated with the NRA in many people’s perceptions is associated with the Republican party,” Fulton told Fox Atlanta. “So in an overabundance of caution Mr. Cobb was asked to remove the hat so that no one could interpret that we were playing any favoritism over one party versus the other.”

But reached for further comment, Fulton couldn’t cite the court case she alluded to and told TheDC that there was no clear precedent at the state level prohibiting NRA apparel.

Eventually, the real reason came out.

Instead, Fulton said that the policy came about after she consulted a colleague following an incident that took place in Douglas County earlier this week.

“It started earlier in the week when a voter complained to me about a hat a man was wearing [an NRA hat],” Fulton told TheDC.

Like Cobb, that man removed his hat after being asked.

“I consulted with one of my contemporaries in another county,” Fulton said. They determined that the NRA hat “fell under the same sort of grey area” as a ruling that barred voters from wearing a “Don’t Tread on Me” t-shirt, Fulton said, citing apparel that is popular among tea party and other similar groups.

Fulton was unable to recall if that ruling came from the Georgia Supreme Court or the state election board.

Mark Levin Slams GOP as ‘French Republicans’ at NRA Convention

Share
Talk Show Icon, Mark Levin
Talk Show Icon, Mark Levin

Conservative radio icon, Mark Levin was a guest speaker at the National Rifle association’s annual convention Friday, at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana. He only spoke for a little over 10 minutes, but just like a scatter gun, he hit a lot of targets.

Now it’s obvious to many of us that we live in a post-Constitutional period. This has been the objective of the Democrat Party for a century. Meanwhile, the other party acts like a bunch of French Republicans, confounded, confused, not sure what to do.

They’re looking for a new agenda, they’re looking for a way to reach out. I have one. It’s called the Constitution of the United States.

They’re looking for a new economic policy. I have one. It’s called capitalism.

He took aim at Retired Justice John Paul Stevens’ recent book in which he proposes several changes to the Constitution, chief among them, the evisceration of the 2nd Amendment.

“That would destroy the Second Amendment,” Levin said. “Well, I have a proposed amendment out there, too, that would limit justices to 12-year terms.

What do you think of that one?”

The crowd of more than 2,000 cheered.

” … And limits members of Congress to 12-year terms. What do you think of that one? And empowers three-fifths of the state legislatures to overturn a federal statute or a Supreme Court decision.

What do you think of that one?

He went after Speaker of the House, John Boehner and the cesspool of Washington corruption all at once.

“The Internal Revenue Service has been sicced on conservative and tea party organizations, and the Democrats defend it — and the Speaker of the House will not call a special committee to investigate.

“The NSA is collecting our numbers to see who we’re calling,” he continued. “Well, we’re not calling terrorists, dammit. Don’t track our phone numbers. Track their phone numbers.

“The Department of Justice has run amok. The Environmental Protection Agency has run amok. The Interior Department has run amok,” Levin said. “The whole damn federal Leviathan has run amok.”

He ended his well-received speech with this:

I want the media in this country to know; the President and his party to know; and the French Republicans to know: We’re not going anywhere, this is our country and we’re stayin’ put, and we’re right and you’re wrong!

Watch his speech in it’s entirety.

Great Moments in Civil Discourse: Kansas Professor, David Guth, Wishes Death on Innocent Children

Share

civility

It seems that reciting lies about mass shootings for political points, and then, wishing  death on innocent children is all in a day’s work for journalism professor, David Guth. 

A journalism professor at the University of Kansas (KU) turned to Twitter on Monday to suggest he would like to see the murder of children of National Rifle Association (NRA) members at the hands of a deranged gunman.

A journalism professor has defended tweets he sent out which called for the death of NRA employees children.

“#NavyYardShooting The blood is on the hands of the #NRA,” tweeted David Guth, who is an associate professor of Journalism at the university’s William Allen White School of Journalism.

“Next time, let it be YOUR sons and daughters, he continued. “Shame on you. May God damn you.”

 LIKE CAMPUS REFORM ON FACEBOOK

Speaking with Campus Reform on Wednesday, Guth confirmed it was he who sent the controversial tweet.

“Hell no, hell no, I do not regret that Tweet,” he said. “I don’t take it back one bit.”

Guth also doubled down on the statement when other Twitter users pressed him, suggesting it was was shameful to call for the death of children.

“God’s justice takes many forms,” he tweeted in response.

In other words, he doubled down on the hate, and added a nice chunk of unreality for good measure.  Then again, he is a liberal.

The Universities are FULL of people like this. They are trained and conditioned by the higher education system to indoctrinate ever multiplying waves of useful idiots.  And, of course, he would be a journalism professor.  And I’m sure he teaches his students to be unbiased and based their reporting on facts, right?

Sarcasm aside, Guth is a product of the “long march through the institutions.”  He has been “programmed,” as indicated by our friend Bezmenov.  And not matter how many facts you expose him to, he will never accept reality.  For Guth, and others like him, facts are the enemy, and those that discuss them are to be crushed.

Jared Marcum, Age 14, Faces Possible Year in Jail for Wearing NRA T-Shirt

Share

Of course, the powers that be will not say that it has anything to do with the shirt, but it appears that Jared Marcum, a 14 year-old student is facing potential imprisonment for wearing a NRA T-shirt. We covered this back in April…

And, as the TV report indicates, the shirt in question does not violate school policy, yet they took some rather extreme actions against him. Here is a bit more from WOWK…

“I don’t’ see how anybody would have an issue with a hunting rifle and NRA put on a t-shirt, especially when policy doesn’t forbid it,” Lardieri said.

The Logan County School District’s dress code policy prohibits clothing that displays profanity, violence, discriminatory messages and more but nowhere in the document does it say anything about gun images.

“He did not violate any school policy,” Lardieri reiterates. “He did not become aggressive.”

Now, Lardieri says he’s ready to fight until the situation is made right.

“I will go to the ends of the earth, I will call people, I will write letters, I will do everything in the legal realm to make sure this does not happen again,” Lardieri said.

Eventually, he was off the hook, and was greeted in school with an act of support-other students were wearing the same shirt.

Now, however, his redemption must be denied, as the DA is now seeking to punish him.

It seems that no matter what, this child has to be punished.

8th Grader Suspended and Arrested for NRA T-Shirt

Share

When liberals run schools, there subject the children to, among other things, “tolerance and diversity.”  Now, the irony of “tolerance diversity” is that it only extends to those that agree 100% with the regressive agenda.  If you have an opinion that differs one iota from the regressive line?  Well, then to forces of “tolerance and diversity” become rather intolerant.  Just ask Jared Marcum.  He is an eighth grade student, whose school did not like his NRA t-shirt, so they had him arrested and suspended when he refused to change it.  WOWK has more…

Countering Mayor Bloomberg’s Anti-gun ad Campaign…

Share

Mayor Bloomberg is a typical statist who believes we the people can not be trusted with self-governance.  That all of our actions must be managed by some governmental agency or policy.  We simply do not know what is best for us, so he’s more than willing to spend his money to run ads that tells us what he thinks is best for us in regards to gun control and background checks and quite frankly I find this insulting and offensive on so many levels.  These ads are to be used to sway or shift public opinion in regards to gun control to the left and that concerns me.  The left is very effective at using propaganda to sway and win the hearts and minds of the uninformed and with each passing day the uninformed continue to grow in numbers in America.  Wayne Lapierre sat down with David Gregory on Meet the Press and discussed Mayor Bloomberg’s plan.

H/T Mediaite News

David seemed a tad bit hostile towards Mr. Lapierre.  That’s the problem with liberals, they don’t want to hear or deal with facts so they block them out and continue to press forward with their objective.  Mr. Gregory’s objective was to make Wayne Lapierre appear out of touch with the American people and unreasonable.  This is why he threw up those poll numbers and questioned whether the NRA was going against the will of the people by not supporting universal background checks. Make no mistake people the left’s war with the NRA and our second amendment rights is on.  They will try to make the unreasonable appear reasonable so you will trade your liberty and rights for a security that can never be attained and that’s the point Mr. Lapierre is trying to make.  No matter how many laws we impose crazy people will not be recognizable in the system and criminals will circumvent the system  You will never be able to prevent another Sandy Hook or Aurora Colorado shooting event.  You can only take steps to minimize the carnage when an event like that happens again in the future.  And those steps require less restrictive gun laws and more people carrying weapons on their person to defend themselves.  The left doesn’t want to acknowledge this even when the facts support it.

Think about this, if one teacher or one person in either of the above shooting events was armed the chances that the shooter would have been taken out before they killed so many increases dramatically.  Those who support gun control cannot wrap their brains around the notion that a responsible armed citizenry is the best defense against these nut jobs.  Instead they see it much like Mayor Bloomberg as a self-governance problem.  That an armed citizenry cannot be trusted and that only government can solve our problems.  This flies in the face of everything our founding fathers believed and fought for during the revolutionary war.  Armed citizens not only helped keep good order in the colonies, but they were essential in defending the colonies against King George’s tyrannical acts.  This is why the founders believed that the people’s right to bear arms was never to be infringed on, because they knew an armed citizenry was essential for a free society to function properly.  It kept the government and people honest with each other.

So how do you counter an ad campaign designed to sway public opinion in favor of gun control? You implement your own ad campaign to show how crucial the right to bear arms is in our society and highlight the positive aspects of it.  You appeal to the need that everyone has when it comes to self-defense in a chaotic world.  That’s how you counter the left and that’s how you win.  The NRA needs to consider this.

Liberty forever, freedom for all!

Des Moines Register Editorial Suggests Death to Gun Owners

Share

It kinda reminds you of why we have the Second Amendment.  It isn’t to hunt, or to target shoot.  It’s to protect us from tyrants, and moonbat editorial writers from the Des Moines Register, who suggest death to gun owners.  Moonbattery has more…

Sandy Hook served as a pretext for the following homicidal bile:

“I would tie Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, our esteemed Republican leaders, to the back of a Chevy pickup truck and drag them around a parking lot until they saw the light on gun control,” he wrote. Is that a threatening James Byrd reference? “And if that didn’t work, I’d adopt radical measures,” he continued.

Kaul’s solution to gun violence is the equivalent of curing a headache with a guillotine:

“Repeal the Second Amendment, the part about guns anyway. [… Gibberish confirming that he doesn’t know what the word militia means in the context of the Constitution. …] Owning a gun should be a privilege, not a right.

“Declare the NRA a terrorist organization and make membership illegal. … Make ownership of unlicensed assault rifles a felony. If some people refused to give up their guns, that ‘prying the guns from their cold, dead hands’ thing works for me.”

In other words, kill gun owners, because they are violent. That maniacs like Kaul have a tendency to acquire political power is all the reason you need to stock up on guns and ammo.

They’re loud.

They’re pushy.

They’re batsh*t insane.

And they want the power to do what they want, which is to kill a ton of people.

It’s people like Mr. Kaul that we need protection from.  And, according to the Founders, we can do that all by ourselves.

NOTE:  I’m not suggesting that we do to Mr. Kaul what he he would do to us.  We actually believe in freedom.  However, we do need to be vigialnt, and protect our freedoms, instead of using threats and insanity, like Mr. Kaul.

Student Sues School for Bullying: Was Abused and Threatened After Wearing Romney/Ryan Shirt to Class

hypocrite

For all of the talk about bullying, Conservatives get left out of the mix.  For the proof, take a look at this video, via Gateway Pundit…

See, bullying is bad, unless you belong to the following “categories”…

1.  Conservatives

2.  Christians

3.  Jews

4.  Tea Party members

5.  NRA members

You see, “anti-bullying measures” are meant to protect liberals from dissent (yes, they might protect some poor kids from general abuse-at least while someone is actually looking, but that is another story).  Anyone who disagrees with the regressive agenda are still subject to discrimination, abuse, death threats, violence, and the like. After all, Saul Alinsky was the master bully, and they left isn’t about to throw out that playbook.

Liberals Threaten NRA with Death, Forgets That Clinton Made Same Suggestion

Share

hypocriteThe hypocrisy runs pretty deep in liberal-land.  If fact, hypocrisy might just be the bedrock upon which planet liberal rests, but that is a post for anther day.  Yesterday, the NRA responded to the horrific massacre at Sandy Hook, by advocating for armed police to be in each school.  Liberals all over, from political figures, to media talking heads, all vilified the NRA President, Wayne Lapierre, and many death threats were issued.  However, all of these useful idiots failed to recognize that one of their own, then President Bill Clinton, made that exact same suggestion after the Columbine incident in the 90’s.  The Lid has more…

As the Associated Press reported at the time:

“In our national struggle against youth violence we must not fail our children; our future depends on it,” the president said in his weekly radio address.

Parents, teens, teachers, youth workers and others will discuss research that indicates the preteen years set patterns for behavior and success in adulthood. Other subjects will include the risks, challenges and anxieties faced by young people today and what can be done to avoid dangerous or risky behavior.

“We need to talk about safety and security in every house in America,” Clinton said.

Republican critics said the federal government is a clumsy middleman in trying to cope with problems that should be addressed locally. They cast doubt on whether the teen conference would accomplish anything, accused Clinton of ignoring media violence and said he should support stiff jail sentences for anyone carrying a firearm in a violent or drug-related crime.

Clinton announced $40 million in grants for 23 school districts that he said have found successful, comprehensive approaches to help troubled young people.

“These districts are bringing school nurses and counselors together to respond to warning signs like depression or bullying,” Clinton said. “They are improving classroom security and expanding after-school and mentoring programs.”
Clinton also unveiled the $60-million fifth round of funding for “COPS in School,” a Justice Department program that helps pay the costs of placing police officers in schools to help make them safer for students and teachers. The money will be used to provide 452 officers in schools in more than 220 communities.


“Already, it has placed 2,200 officers in more than 1,000 communities across our nation, where they are heightening school safety as well as coaching sports and acting as mentors and mediators for kids in need,” Clinton said.

SHHHHH! Please don’t tell the liberals that Clinton supported a program very similar to the one presented by NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre today…It might cause their heads to explode…or even worse It might make them to think instead of politicizing.

Well, and that’s the whole point.  The Democrats have been “on the down-low” with gun control.  They want it, and want it badly, but they though it was a loser of an issue, until now.  While this story is hot, they have a chance to whittle away at our gun rights, so they’ll take their shot.  In other words, they’ll use dead children to score political points that will help no one-other than their long term agenda to disarm the rest of us.

Great Moments in Civil Discourse: Liberals Threaten to Kill NRA Members

civility

They’re liberal, tolerant, diverse, and loving…

And they’ll kill you if they disagree with them.  At least that’s what many of the liberals on Twitter were saying as of late. Freedom Outpost has the details, via Free Republic…

kill nra

 

Um, do these people even know that they are proving the point? If someone did go after a NRA event, or a NRA office, what are the odds that they will be killed by an armed citizen?  Go after a bunch of NRA members at an event, and they may go down in a hail of gunfire!  But that’s the point, right?  The reason that mass shootings are successful is that there is no one there to defend the defenseless, or that adults are not permitted to defend themselves, or others.

But, these folks are liberals, so reality doesn’t matter to them, only their own tolerance hate.

NRA deal opens the way for DISCLOSE Act

Share

Well it finally looks like the way is clear for the controversial DISCLOSE Act (H.R. 5175) to be brought to the House floor.

On Monday, Democratic leaders cleared the bill’s way by cutting a deal with the NRA, exempting the massive gun-rights organization from the Act’s requirements. Democrats in moderate districts were wary of crossing the NRA by trying to limit its campaign ads.

You can read more about the NRA deal here.

Democratic leaders now believe they can ram the bill, H.R. 5175, through the House without any opposition to stop it.

This bill is so loosely crafted that it’s an absolute train wreck that not only threatens free speech in America, but could indirectly impact the current free exercise of speech bloggers enjoy.  See my May 20 post on this subject.  The bill was originally written to counter the Supreme Court’s recent ruling in Citizens United V FEC.  The court ruled that provisions of the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law restricted corporations and nonprofit groups from running political advertising were unconstitutional.  This was in my opinion a huge win for free speech.  Not so much for the Democrats who face a tough political landscape this November.  So what do they do instead of addressing our serious economic concerns, our skyrocketing debt, our out-of-control spending, our falling dollar; they take the time to craft a bill that will place serious limitations on free speech rights guaranteed by our Constitution’s 1st amendment before an election cycle…sweet!

Americans for Tax Reform and over 50 other groups, including The American Conservative Union, CatholicVote.org, the Center for Competitive Politics, and Citizens Against Government Waste, have sent a letter to Congress calling the bill “an unequivocal ban on free speech, masquerading as an exercise in accountability.”

Below is a list of the new rules if the DISCLOSE Act becomes law.

It would expand the window for “electioneering communications,” which was 30 to 60 days under   McCain-Feingold, to 90 days before a primary or caucus. During that period, corporations and nonprofits would face stringent procedures for any corporate advertising. The electioneering window, once opened, would continue through to the general election. So because presidential primaries fall well before the election, the restrictions could conceivably be in place for over a year.

The bill requires a mountain of paperwork, because companies must submit a list to the FEC of all donors who contributed more than $600. “In the 1950s, the NAACP went to court to say it should not have to disclose its membership list,” Heritage Foundation legal scholar Hans Von Spakovsky says. He contends the provision to disclose members’ names poses constitutional problems “because it interferes with their right to associate.” It prohibits any company that received government contracts, or that received TARP bailouts, from spending any money on election advertising.

In a precedent-setting exemption, the Disclose Act for the first time would restrict the activities of nonprofits and companies, but not unions in some cases. Opponents point out that unions recently spent over $10 million in an unsuccessful bid to defeat Arkansas Sen. Blanche Lincoln in the Democratic primary. “This is the empower-labor-unions-over-everybody-else act,” says Norquist. “It’s making it illegal for Americans to participate in politics.”

It bans any advertising from foreign companies, including domestic companies that have 20 percent or more foreign control.

The names of all donors who give $1,000 or more to an organization must be disclosed to the FEC, if the organization spends more than $10,000 on political advertising. Labor unions are included in this provision.

It requires CEOs to appear on camera stating they “approve this message.” Those familiar with how political fund-raising work say this alone would scare away political speech by the vast majority of companies and associations. Curt Levey of the Committee for Justice, one of the groups that signed the anti-Disclose Act letter, tells Newsmax: “I see this as a threat especially to conservative nonprofits, but really to nonprofits in general, because that’s ultimately where the corporate spending that is being attacked here is coming from. Donors very often ask about anonymity. That’s important to them. I could see the groups losing a lot of donations. It’s meant to have a chilling effect, and it will have a chilling effect. I think it’s going to have a horrible effect on nonprofits groups….”

The top donor to the organization, who might not have donated any money for that particular ad, would be required to appear in the commercial to provide the public with information on those funding the commercial. Also, a TV ad would have to list the top five funders to the organization, and radio ads would have to disclose the top two funders. Disclose Act opponents point out the additional time required for the burdensome disclosures would make the ads prohibitively expensive.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot; Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

What part of this does Congress not understand?

Liberty forever, freedom for all!
