How many times have you heard Democrats accuse the NRA of bribing politicians to keep guns in the hands of killers? Let’s debunk this right now.
Billionaire and Everytown for Gun Safety founder Michael Bloomberg, all by himself, has more money than the entire NRA. He spends more money on influencing elections than the entire NRA.
If Republicans are for sale, why doesn’t Bloomberg simply buy them off and get his gun control?
Of course, the narrative doesn’t end here. How many times have you heard the NRA called murderers and terrorists? The Southern Poverty Law Center officially labeled the group as a terrorist organization. So have politicians in California.
What’s crazy is that they miss the irony. They hide under this narrative that words are violence, and they use that to suggest that the NRA is committing mass shootings without firing a shot. Yet, that very acknowledgment admits that the problem is with people, rather than guns.
If they were capable of two, consecutive, intellectually-honest thoughts in a row, they might finally come to the conclusion that mass murderers are responsible for mass murder. What a revelation.
A New Poll
Considering all of that, the new poll you’re about to read won’t surprise you. It was run by Rasmussen. They asked about 1,000 Democrats how they felt about the NRA. Rasmussen found that 28 percent of Democrats fully support outlawing membership to the NRA.
Keep in mind that it’s not even against the law to join the KKK or American chapters of ISIS, but a third of the left thinks it should be illegal to support the 2nd Amendment. They don’t care that this idea violates the first two Amendments simultaneously.
But, there’s more to this 28 percent. This number also tells you how many Democrats in the country support radicals like “the Squad” and Robert Francis ‘Beto’ O’Rourke. It’s a little over a quarter.
Stop and think about this for a minute. Roughly three-quarters of Democrats aren’t actually against the NRA or the 2nd Amendment, yet the mainstream platform of the party involves an illegal, unilateral, unconstitutional seizure of weapons. The Democrats are going far to the left to support a minority of their voters. 28 percent of the party is calling the shots for the rest.
A moderate Democrat physically can’t elect someone who supports their beliefs because those candidates don’t exist. The radicals are in complete control.
It’s a cliché to compare modern events to WWII, but there is a valuable lesson here. The Nazis took over Germany without ever winning a majority in an election. They got some seats in the government, but it was the bullying and intimidation that truly gave rise to their power and Hitler’s dictatorship.
The Nazi party was a minority of about the same size and temperament as the current radical left. When the majority caved even a little, the Nazis used their power to seize more control, and the end result was the terrible history we all know so well.
The far-left and the progressives are adopting this exact strategy in America right now. They genuinely want to be dictators of the country so they can seize your guns, your money, your property and your very lives. As AOC herself put it, “We’re in charge now!”
Worse, O’Rourke and Harris both admitted in a Democratic debate that they want to dictatorially take away gun rights in this country. This is not a hypothetical situation. They’re brazen enough to admit their goal. Harris even laughed when it was pointed out to her that she was proposing the destruction of the Constitution.
Here’s the final thing to remember. The NRA isn’t what protects us. They make it easy to assemble and keep things peaceful, but they aren’t the failsafe. The 2nd Amendment itself is the failsafe. It was written as a direct threat to these would-be dictators. It has successfully armed over a hundred million Americans.
That militia is a greater fighting force than any military on the planet, and it will not be quelled. The far-left would do well to remember that threat as they try to forcefully seize power. The militia is the difference between modern America and 1930s Germany. It won’t be 28 percent who win if they force this conflict to turn bloody.
