I saw this excellent explanation of how some of the stupid Democrats are blaming political rhetoric on the horrific shooting on Sunday in Tuscon, AZ that critically injured a Congresswoman, injured many others and killed 6 other people including the granddaughter of Hall of Fame baseball coach Dallas Green. As usual, the Liberals are politicizing a horrific event for gain when in fact, you had a mentally disturbed person for whatever his reason maybe, decided to open fire on people. I think it was stupid of the media and some people, including an officer (stated before he had any facts what so ever), that this was politically motivated. A majority of Americans DO NOT believe that this politically motivated at all, because we are smarter than the people in power. Read this article too from the Wall Street Journal. This kid of bullshit needs to stop. Period. By the way, the shooter, I hope you rot in hell you bastard.
Democrats in the aftermath of the Arizona massacre in which Jared Loughner went on a shooting spree, killing six innocent by-standers and critically wounding Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, immediately defined their agenda: blame conservative pundits and the Tea Party.
But casting the blame on Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and Fox News is only part of the agenda of the far left Democrats. Let it be known Democrats have a two-fold agenda:
Democrats Agenda #1: Shut Down Free Speech
When you try to silence your opposition it is an outright attack on one of the most basic natural rights in our Republic-FREE SPEECH. Since Democrats believe rights come from government and not God, this is not a problem with them. Democrats can’t win in the battle of ideas, because history has shown their programs fail! With the recent massive losses Democrats suffered in the 2010 midterm election, Democrats are more determined now to blame Sarah Palin and conservatives in the aftermath of the Arizona shooting. Jim Hoft elaborated this point this morning:
After two years of policy failures Democrats have now switched gears and are trying to silence the opposition. They understand their policies don’t work and have decided that smearing their conservative opposition may be their best way back into power.
This explains why the democrat-media complex including Media Matters, Daily Kos, Keith Olbermann, CNN, The New York Times, democratic politicians, etc. are working overtime to pin the mass murder by an anti-war, anti-Christian, anti-Constitution, left-wing, pro-Marx, anti-flag, “quite liberal” lunatic on right-wing politicos. The left can’t win in the arena of ideas. Their policies have been a complete disaster. So, rather than acknowledging their errors and correcting course, they are trying to silence good God-fearing conservatives.
So now you have Democrats like Robert Brady who are determined to introduce legislation outlawing inflammatory language. This is nothing more than an attack on free speech. I wonder where Congressman Brady stood when Democrats used inflammatory speech again President George Bush? How does Robert Brady feel about the inflammatory speech used by MoveOn.org when MoveOn.org compared President Bush to Adolf Hitler? Remember this:
Or how about the inflammatory speech used by Chris Matthews when he said he “wanted Rush’s “head to explode like a blimp” and wanted “to be there when it happened.”
I wonder if Democrats like Robert Brady were outraged at the inflammatory language of Barack Obama when he said the following:
** Obama: “They Bring a Knife…We Bring a Gun”
** Obama to His Followers: “Get in Their Faces!”
** Obama on ACORN Mobs: “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!”
** Obama to His Mercenary Army: “Hit Back Twice As Hard”
** Obama on the private sector: “We talk to these folks… so I know whose ass to kick.“
** Obama to voters: Republican victory would mean “hand to hand combat”
** Obama to lib supporters: “It’s time to Fight for it.”
** Obama to Latino supporters: “Punish your enemies.”
** Obama to democrats: “I’m itching for a fight.”
Democrats believe in free speech as long they are the ones who are allowed to speak, but not when it comes to their opposition.
So clearly in the aftermath of the Arizona massacre, the Democrats’ agenda is to shut down free speech. But there’s another agenda which is not being talked about.
Democrats’ Agenda #2: Gun Control
While the Democrats attempt to silence free speech is abit disturbing, Democrats have another agenda in the aftermath of the Arizona shooting – enter Carolyn McCarthy.
Carolyn McCarthy entered politics after her husband was murdered and her son injured in the mass shooting aboard the Long Island Rail Road by Colin Ferguson. Ferguson killed six and injured nineteen. After the tragedy, McCarthy became one of the nation’s leading anti-gun advocates. Naturally, she leapt on the Arizona shooting as an easy excuse to further her anti-gun agenda. She did the same thing after the Virginia Tech Massacre, even though she could not correctly identify exactly what it was she was trying to ban. Now she’s got another chance to push legislation that is squarely against our right to bear arms, protected in the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States.
One of the fiercest gun-control advocates in Congress, Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.), pounced on the shooting massacre in Tucson Sunday, promising to introduce legislation as soon as Monday targeting the high-capacity ammunition the gunman used.
McCarthy ran for Congress after her husband was gunned down and her son seriously injured in a shooting in 1993 on a Long Island commuter train.
“My staff is working on looking at the different legislation fixes that we might be able to do and we might be able to introduce as early as tomorrow,” McCarthy told POLITICO in a Sunday afternoon phone interview.
Gun control activists cried it was time to reform weapons laws in the United States, almost immediately after a gunman killed six and injured 14 more, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, in Arizona on Saturday.
I don’t doubt that gun control activists like McCarthy have good intentions. Knowing a loved one was a victim of gun violence will undoubtedly make you want to take action. However, the saying “the road to Hell is paved with good intentions” exists for a reason, and taking guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens does nothing but ensure that they are defenseless when confronted by a criminal who undoubtedly will not care about gun control laws.
The idea that guns cause crimes is ludicrous. The only thing that causes crimes are the people that commit them. A well-armed populace is a well-protected populace, and even the FBI found that a rise in gun sales meant a decrease in violent crimes. Consider, for example, that gun sales surged after Obama was elected. In 2009, after the surge in gun sales, violent crime dropped in every category: armed robbery, assault, vehicle theft, and even murder, which dropped an astounding 10%. You can see the exact opposite in countries like Great Britain, where handguns are banned — and violent crimes are the norm. In 2008, they doubled down on their idiocy and sought to ban knives because the rate of stabbing deaths had grown so alarming. It’s absolutely ludicrous, because even if guns and knives didn’t exist, people out to spill the blood of innocent people would still find a way to do so – and probably wouldn’t mind circumventing weapons laws to do so either.
What we can see, however, is that law-abiding citizens who do have guns can prevent crimes by being in a position to defend themselves. Imagine how different mass shooting sprees, too, could end up if even one of the victims had been armed. From the shooting that killed Carolyn McCarthy’s husband, to the Virginia Tech massacre, to the recent recent school board shooting, to this weekend’s shooting in Arizona — one armed citizen could have stopped the crazed gunman in each situation.
Unfortunately, when you have an unarmed populace, you have innocent people who have no recourse other than to cower and pray for mercy from a murderer until police arrive. This isn’t an indictment of police, of course, but it’s good to keep in mind the saying, when seconds count, police are just minutes away. Whatever the situation — someone breaks into your home, tries to steal your car, or starts shooting up the mall while you’re there with your family — being armed and able to defend yourself is an asset, not a liability. Gun control does nothing except make law-abiding citizens sitting ducks before criminals who will still arm themselves and be emboldened knowing that their victims can’t fight back.
Aside from this common sense line of thinking, there’s one other thing that needs to be remembered before Rep. McCarthy is allowed to push anti-gun legislation in the wake of this tragedy. It’s unconstitutional. We have a constitutional right to keep and bear arms, and people like Carolyn McCarthy are exploiting the Arizona shooting in order to infringe on that constitutional right. If Rep. McCarthy has a problem with our constitutional right to bear arms, then perhaps she shouldn’t be serving as a member of Congress. Maybe she could consider moving to Britain, where they share her distaste for guns. Would she feel safer there, I wonder? If she does not like guns, then she does not have to own one. That doesn’t give her the right, however, to keep others from owning guns.
The image below says it all about the Democrats’ agenda:
The Democrats’ agenda must be stopped in its tracks!
The Democrats agenda can be best summed up in one word: progressivism. As Glenn Beck has stated, “Progressivism is the cancer in America and it is eating our Constitution, and it was designed to eat the Constitution, to progress past the Constitution.”
Since the Democrats have this agenda which is to deny EVERY American their constitutional rights, the agenda the Democrats have clearly defined must be stopped!
