If you own a firearm, particularly an AK-47 or an AR-15, liberals now say you very well may be a hate-filled white supremacist. In the era of identity politics, nothing works better than placing an entire group under an umbrella.
That umbrella is the notion that hate-filled white males are gunning down black- and brown-skinned people due to racial motivations. Give me a break.
In a very few cases, they are right. Dylann Roof, for example, tried to start a race war in South Carolina. It didn’t work, wouldn’t work, and, frankly, couldn’t work.
Liberals love to focus on the outliers, the criminals like Roof and ignore the stats that show the overwhelming majority of the nation’s gun owners are law-abiding citizens. That is especially true of CCW holders, who very well may be the most law-abiding citizens on the planet. Crime rates among CCW holders are incredibly low at about 0.02 percent.
Statistics show the vast majority of CCW are white males under the age of 65 – the same demographic now targeted as purveyors of hate. Yet, we have politicians now telling us white supremacists are the primary sources of mass shootings and the biggest security threat in this nation.
Former President Barack Obama was first to declare white males out in the backwoods are the true “domestic terrorists” and threats to our way of life.
More recently, Democrats vying for that party’s presidential nomination in the upcoming Iowa Caucus are claiming hordes of white supremacist males are roaming city streets looking for black and brown people to pick off.
South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg has declared a “national emergency” due to the availability of firearms and the potential for them to “fall into the wrong hands.” Those “wrong hands,” he says, are white supremacist males.
Echoing that sentiment, former San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro – a former Obama cabinet secretary and 2020 hopeful – told Iowans we need to “disarm hate” by combating white nationalism. “White nationalism” is liberal double-speak for Pres. Donald Trump and the voters who support him.
They hate Pres. Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan, because it is has been so effective. So, they claim the President and his supporters want a return to the Jim Crow South – a time when white men biasedly ruled the nation, while women and people of color were lucky to be deemed second-class citizens.
At least, that is what anti-gun Democrats and liberals in general want us to believe about Pres. Trump and his political supporters.
Anti-gun liberals and Democrats say the recent mass-shooting in El Paso, Texas, underscores the threat of white supremacists. There, a young white male gunned down a few Hispanic shoppers in addition to bunch of white people in a Walmart store.
He had posted a hate-filled white-supremacist manifesto shortly before committing the horrific act. Democrats blame the President for correctly pointing out problems with border enforcement and say he is fanning the flames of hatred. Yet, Democrats clearly are invoking race and stoking flames of hatred.
With a wide-open field of mostly weak candidates, Democrats know unseating the President during the 2020 election is harder than they present to media and the general public. So, they are using the basest, most offensive form of identity politics at their disposal and declaring gun owners and supporters of the President to be hate-filled white supremacists and white nationalists who are so afraid of losing power they’re willing to kill others who don’t look like them. It’s ridiculous.
They even have their own jack-booted thugs out in force attacking those whose political views differ from theirs. They are called Antifa, and they absolutely are the true fascists and a threat to our republic. A great example is the most recent mass-shooter in Dayton, Ohio. That attack occurred 13 hours after the El Paso murders, and was committed by a far-left supporter of Sen Elizabeth Warren.
The extremely deranged young white male who committed that horrific act wrote in his manifesto that he hates capitalism, loves socialism, and is a strong advocate for increased gun control. He proved it by targeting innocent people in a gun-free zone.
At least the Walmart in El Paso allowed customers to carry firearms. The Warren-supporter targeted innocent, unarmed people in a Dayton bar. You can bet one of his intentions is to push public opinion more toward disarming law-abiding citizens via knee-jerk legislation.
The notion that mass shooters are white supremacists and supporters of Pres. Trump has no basis in reality or fact. Liberals say most mass shooters in the United States are young white males. That helps them to push the false white supremacist narrative.
They do all this just to get votes and to keep themselves in power. It’s shameful at best and dangerous at worst. These politicians must be voted out as soon as possible. Your vote is the only thing keeping this country sane.
