Whose ‘Safety’ Does La Raza Have in Mind with U.S. Citizen Disarmament Policies?
“Following Orlando Shooting, National Council of La Raza Passes Gun Safety Resolution,” the Human Rights Campaign announced as part of its “Stop the Hate campaign.” How infringing on rights advances them was left unsaid, but as they demonstrate with practically everything they do, for “progressives” every day is Opposite Day.
HRC, of course, came up with its own “common sense gun violence prevention policies,” which when you cut through the wordiness (they do love to go on) distills down to:
- Banning any semi-auto worth a damn in a multiple assailant situation;
- Ending private sales; enabling registration through prior restraints;
- Throwing due process and the concept of innocent until proven guilty out the window (at least for the people who don’t go around shooting up gay nightclubs).
Naturally, devising safeguards against radical Islam and being personally responsible for your own defense were not part of that mix, because as we all know, that would be “hateful.” Right?
In its statement, La Raza called such gun owner controls “reasonable restrictions … consistent with the protection of the civil rights of all Americans,” which appear to be kind of like non-infringing infringements or tolerable Intolerable Acts. Sometimes it’s hard to keep up with the contradictions.
While they’re undermining the ability to field that which the Founders deemed ‘necessary to the security of a free State,” La Raza’s other hand is doing what it can to “broaden pathways for people to enter the country legally to work and reunite with their families [and] provide an accessible path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. And that, of course, will result in – per all credible polls and as we can see from the California experience – politically unchallengeable Democrat/anti-gun supermajorities with the ability to pass any edict they please and appoint judges to uphold them.
Of course to warn about that carries the risk of being tagged with the new scarlet letter, “R” for “racist,” and of incurring the penalties “progressives” have in mind for us once those supermajorities are achieved. Forget that it’s La Raza that means “the race” (even though Opposite Day “progressive” apologists are out there denying the obvious and distancing themselves the same way socialists do with, well, you know).
The other things they want forgotten while they culturally terraform the Republic:
- The Preamble to the Constitution, which sets up the reasons why our government exists in the first place, and especially its mandate “to secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.”
- Mexican immigration policy. If you haven’t seen what they require, take a moment and check out that link. It looks perfectly reasonable and like what we ought to be doing here. No one is accusing them of being racists and haters.
- The more radical agenda behind the mainstream face the National Council of La Raza provides, including ties to those committed to “Reconquista” and the “ethnic cleansing” that will be needed to establish Aztlan.
It’s that last point that brings into focus why La Raza may have motivation other than “gun safety” for pushing citizen disarmament.
I know a lot of Oath Keepers appreciate Matt Bracken’s work, and “Domestic Enemies: The Reconquista” is the title of his second book in his EFAD trilogy. If you haven’t read them (along with his other books), it really is your loss, especially since they’re available in the economical e-book format as well as in paperback.
