“The calls we are hearing today for gun control have nothing to do with protecting Americans from violence. What you’re witnessing is a kind of class war. The left hates rural America, red America, gun-owning America, the America that elected Donald Trump. They hate them. Progressives are still in charge of most of the major institutions in this country and they despise the autonomy of an armed population. They want collective punishment for the sins of a few. They seek to obliterate our core constitutional right rather than trying to mitigate its downsides. They call it gun control, but it’s not. It’s people control. For the left, voters who can’t be controlled, can’t be trusted.”
Tucker Carlson, February 15, 2018
I trust everyone had a grand Christmas. The law mines are usually fairly quiet between Christmas and New Years. I have two real estate closings on tap this week and otherwise I hope I can use the time to perform some necessary, albeit mundane, tasks and, in general, to catch up.
Tucker Carlson provides a list of a hundred items proclaimed by some Leftists to be racist this year. Go here to view the well documented list. Feel free to add to it in the comboxes. Racism is a terrible thing, but Leftists have largely rendered the charge a nullity by insisting to use it as a shorthand insult for people who have the temerity to disagree with them. It also doesn’t help that while Leftists purport to be all about fighting racism, most Leftists express sentiments against whites that are clearly racist. This seems to be a common mode of operation for the Left these days, embracing what one claims to be fighting. Thus we see Leftists calling themselves anti-fascists while embracing groups that dress in black, punch out people in the streets and howl down in public forums speech that they hate.
