There are only a few weeks left before the midterms. Early voting has already started in plenty of districts, and anyone who cares about the future of this country is watching a number of races with bated breath. In Missouri, an interesting battle for the U.S. Senate has unfolded. The incumbent, Claire McCaskill, is facing a real challenge to keep her seat. Considering the voter base, she has been careful to try and say all of the right things. To the gun owners in Missouri, we have this to say: she is lying and we can prove it.
Let’s start with what can be proven. McCaskill has a campaign website, and she’s been running ads like every other candidate for the Senate. She’s also been serving for a while, so we can compare what she says to what she does. It already doesn’t paint the best picture. Her website used to say that she supported the 2nd Amendment, but that part has recently been removed. Now, it doesn’t mention guns at all. On the campaign trail, she has said that she does not support bans on semi-automatic weapons but that she is for universal background checks. It’s a mixed bag.
When you compare her voting record, you see that she’s pretty far on the left. Even though, her website claims that she is against unconditional amnesty and wants to strengthen border security, anyone can look at the public record and see that she supported DACA and voted for provisional measures to provide unconditional amnesty to illegal immigrants.
She also voted for bans on bump stocks and high-capacity magazines, and she has supported multiple attempts to disarm citizens for a number of different reasons. One of her worst stances is that she voted against due process and in favor of forcibly disarming anyone on a no-fly list. Overall, the NRA has given her an F for her voting history. Still, she says on the trail that she supports your right to bear arms.
The Sting Video
Unfortunately, looking up voting history is too much work for the average citizen. They’ll listen to the lies of a Democrat like McCaskill and never check to see if she lives up to her word. Thankfully, groups like Project Veritas exist. They just published a sting video where McCaskill and members of her campaign unwittingly admit the truth to the world. It went viral instantaneously.
The entire video is rife with people admitting that McCaskill is much farther to the left than she claims. She is on film supporting a ban on semi-automatic rifles, and her staff is caught admitting that she wants to ban all semi-automatic weapons.
They undercover video catches her on other issues too. They admit that she has taken secret campaign donations from Planned Parenthood and that she is actively planning to vote to impeach President Trump.
There’s too much to cover all at once, so we’ll stick to gun issues. The most harrowing moment in the entire video is when a staffer admitting that if given an inch, they will take a mile. They openly claim that their true goals are a complete ban on all firearms across the country. Dwell on that for a minute. The Democrat who claims to be moderate and in favor of the 2nd Amendment sings a completely different tune behind closed doors. She wants to ban all guns. Forever.
A Vicious Response
McCaskill’s response to the video has been equal parts hilarious and horrible. Even though there is video of her talking about banning weapons, she claims that she never said it. She threw her entire campaign staff under the bus and said they were not authorized to speak to her positions. Then, she tried to claim that the video is fraud. She called on the Missouri government to investigate her fraud claims in order to try and silence the video. Her request was summarily declined.
It’s not surprising that McCaskill is in a state of desperate panic. The race was extremely close before the video was released. Now, with only a few weeks to try and stem the bleeding, her back is up against the wall.
What’s important is to remember that McCaskill is in no way exceptional among Democrats. Her views are run of the mill, and her actions are par for the course. Voters in Missouri have a chance to kick her out of Washington — especially now that they have video proof, but voters everywhere have a similar opportunity. There is a McCaskill in every state, and they’re easy to identify. They’re Democratic candidates. Let’s come together as a country and remove these liars and freedom haters from power. Remember this when you vote in 2 weeks at the mid-terms.
