The left has a funny habit of falsely accusing the right of everything they themselves do or openly espouse.
The left accuses the right of being anti-American and wanting to destroy the government. Yet it’s the left that burns flags, curses the country, and pushes for a radical overthrow of government in the name of “revolution.”
Actor Michael Ian Black’s twitter outburst is the latest example of this mind-bending phenomena.
Black called the NRA a terrorist group, but I’m sure he would never say the same about Black Lives Matter, Antifa, James Hodgkinson, the growing wave of college campus radicals, or the various other unhinged leftists.
We have two separate parties that have deep, systemic divisions on how government should be run and it’s associated issues, free speech, gun rights, health care etc., so a truce on the rhetoric was never going to happen. Just like it didn’t happen after Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-AZ) was shot. Even as House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) fought for his life, liberals were more or less saying he deserved it because he had the voting record of a conservative Republican. Scores more were hoping that he died.
Now, as the health care battle is upon us, Democrats are saying the GOP wants to kill people, and that the GOP health care agenda will lead to thousands of people dying. This truce was never going to last long because a) we’re on the verge of an election year; b) Democrats want to try and retake Congress; and c) this is politics—win at all costs. And health scare tactics work very, very well.
On the issue of Second Amendment rights, what better characters to fan the flames of nonsense than the Hollywood Left, like actor Michael Ian Black, who thinks the NRA might be a terrorist organization. He even looked up “terrorism” in a dictionary. The FBI’s definition is probably the one you should cite in a debate: “There is no single, universally accepted, definition of terrorism. Terrorism is defined in the Code of Federal Regulations as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.”
To those who say I don’t know what I’m talking about (and I freely admit I often don’t), dictionary def. of terrorist organization. NRA?
Is the NRA a terrorist organization? I don’t know. But I don’t think the answer is a definitive “no,” and that’s troubling enough.
One wonders if Michael Ian Black would’ve called the NRA a terrorist group when they helped blacks fight the KKK, an actual terrorist organization.
The article continues:
This is all because NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch released an awesome video showing that conservatives will fight liberals on the battlefield of ideals with the “clenched fist of truth,” right?
A video where she condemned violence used in the context of a political debate by anyone or any side. Right now, it’s the Left who are engaging in politically motivated violence, rioting, burning stuff, vandalizing college campuses, attacking pro-Trump demonstrators, and taking shots at GOP lawmakers as they practice for a charity baseball event.
Yet, it’s the NRA, the oldest civil rights organization in the country, that’s the real problem because they want to protect something that’s enshrined and codified in our Constitution.
Second, there was no call for violence in Loesch’s video. If you think words that denounce violence is itself … a call for violence, I don’t know what to say other than see a doctor and ask if Xanax is right for you.
When James Hodgkinson, an avowed leftist, tried to execute a mass assassination on Republican lawmakers, that probably could be construed as an act of terrorism. We may never know for sure because the FBI decided to screw up the endgame by saying this was a totally random act, or something.
Right, and the list of names that were found on him was just a constituent call list, right?
We’ve got to the point, where advocating for issues that liberals don’t like makes you a possible terror suspect. That’s insane.
People on the left like to preach tolerance and civility, yet they’re the first to label anyone they disagree with a Nazi/terrorist/bigot.
This furthers the point that leftism isn’t an ideology for these people. It’s their religion. That’s why all infidels and apostates must be met with extreme measures.
That’s why a group that protects constitutional rights is considered a terrorist group.
