Gun Owners Should Welcome Mel Reynolds’ Intent to ‘Go Home to Africa’

Gun Owners Should Welcome Mel Reynolds’ Intent to ‘Go Home to Africa’
Will leaving America after getting out of jail be a Reynolds wrap? (U.S. Congress)

“I’m done with America. I’m going to do this, and I’m going home — to Africa. I’ve given up on America,” ex-Congressthing  Mel Reynolds told reporters after being sentenced to spend time behind bars yet again, this time for tax evasion.

It’s curious, but not unsurprising, that a Democrat who made a career out of transferring wealth from the productive to his constituents should avoid paying his – what do the collectivists call it? – “fair share.”

As for “going home,” I thought they didn’t want him. Perhaps he’s got his sights on nearby South Africa, which is just warming up on exercising the full joys of totalitarianism.

He was deported from Zimbabwe a few years back on pornography and immigration charges, after being arrested for bringing women into his hotel room and letting the cameras roll.

“This is the latest of several legal problems for Reynolds, who … resigned from his congressional seat in 1995 after he was convicted of 12 counts of statutory rape, obstruction of justice and solicitation of child pornography,” Fox News reported at the time. While in prison he was also convicted of bank and campaign fraud. He was in jail until his sentence was commuted by President Bill Clinton in January 2001.”

From one sex offender to another, if rape allegations are to be believed — perhaps asking Bill and Hillary for a “yes” or “no” answer to the question “Is Juanita Broadrrick a liar?” can put an end to years of speculation. Not that they’ll acknowledge let alone answer it.

Reynolds was the successor in office to another political embarrassment, Gus Savage, who a House Ethics committee determined had made “improper sexual advance” to a female Peace Corps volunteer during an official trip to Africa. Savage initially claimed the charges were “racist.” He also insisted that only white people could be racist, and that Reynolds, when challenging him for his seat, had the backing of “racist Jews.” During that campaign, Reynolds backers suspected Savage was behind a drive-by shooting in which the challenger was injured, while the incumbent said the shooting was staged.

Reynolds in turn was succeeded by Jesse Jackson, Jr., who was also national co-chairman of Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, and who himself was sentenced to a 30-month sentence after pleading guilty to wire and mail fraud.

There appears to be some sort of pattern here — but what?

The one key thing all of those sterling examples of criminal political luminaries shared is the goal of disarming their constituents and their countrymen, and Reynolds had consistently been one of the worst of the lot.

“If it were up to me, we’d ban them all,” he told CNN’s Crossfire in 1993.

Reynolds joined Alcee (“Gun owners are racists”) Hastings, impeached as a judge for ethical violations and then, naturally, elected to congress by a “discriminating” constituency, to support Major Owens’ Orwellian-named “Public Health and Safety Act.” The bill was actually a treasonous attempt to ban handguns, back when doctrinaire gun-grabbers did not feel the need for today’s false front that it’s all about “gun safety” and you must be paranoid if you think anyone wants to take your guns. Back then, at least they admitted it.

Reynolds was also a key partner with Dianne Feinstein and Chuck Schumer on the Clinton semi-auto ban and campaigned in 2013 to try to ban them anew.

The bottom line is this convicted felon, a prohibited person who is disqualified by federal law from owning a gun himself, does not trust you with a gun. This … thing, who based on results either cannot or will not control himself, demands to control the rest of us.

Criminal sex offenders don’t get to dictate my rights.

As a personal aside, Reynolds was actually the subject of one of my early published letters to the editor back in 1995, in which, noting his conviction on statutory rape I asked:

“What poses a greater danger to the children of our communities — my lawfully-owned and used semi-automatic rifle or his ‘assault weapon’?”

I also did the cartoon on the right for a pro-gun newsletter I published at the time, and actually got moved to the front of the call-in line by Mr. Snerdley and got a chance to repeat it to Rush Limbaugh on his radio program.

It’s still personal today: Uncontrolled degenerate control freaks like Mel Reynolds have no say on my rights and never will.

Now all that’s left is for the hypocritical reprobate is to make good on his promise and get the hell out of my country.  Let’s just hope he’s not like all those “celebrity” teases that get our hopes up and then fail to deliver.

  1. I hope that Mr. Reynalds will follow-through on is rant to “leave America.” I hope he can find a “GUN FREE” country in Africa, like Sudan, or Ghana, or Zimbabwe! Yeah! Or South Africa, where he can take up the fight against ALL white people!

    Reynalds can organize his own HATE WHITES group and go about murdering white people, with impunity! Go MEL…as soon as they let you out of your “country club jailhouse.”

      1. Report them? For what? I’ve been searching the Web for their GoFundMe page so I can contribute!

        p.s. No one likes a snitch. Well, no one but the Deep State.

  2. Too bad that he’s been booted from Zimbabwe already!

    He might enjoy Cuba, where he could stay with his co-racialist Assata Shakur (f/k/a Joan Chesimard) ! That country has been ruined by the African influence there!

  3. Politicians: They would ALL be ‘convicted criminals’ if only they’d be charged and convicted of their innumerable crimes.

    And STILL, the American people obey the ‘laws’ they pass. As if the process somehow cleanses away the filth of its substance.

    A Republic, until we gave it all away to the twisted notion of practical jurisprudence.

  4. Going home? My bet is they could cares less about this fool. Does he think that by being black they will greet him with open arms? They don’t want him. To them, he is no more African than clinton is. And as far as him having a residence in Africa. BULL. I also bet he will not leave America at all. It’s all mouth.

  5. To Convict Reynolds
    Bye!
    Unless you are a gutless wounder and stay here only to do another con that puts you back in prison, only to blame racism for you getting caught again. More than likely you will stay, unfortunately. Africa, the laws are a bit stricture for your type and that is why you ran back here when you were deported from Zimbabwe. You probably will not be as lucky next time.
    We in America can only hope!

  6. This deranged fool is a model democrat and is also one of the smarter ones. His IQ is obviously really low, but is higher than most dem voters.

  7. Don’t let the door hit you in the ass when you leave . . . you should also take your like minded friends with you

  8. Take them Clinton’s and Emma Gonzalez with you oh and don’t forget David Hogg, he can get the F**k out to, sick of all these slave owner minded fools and yet they have the nerve to call all white people racist.
