Democrats Counting on Ignorance and Apathy to Swing Midterms
“Dem candidates embrace gun control in campaign for House takeover,” Fox News reports. “A study by The Wall Street Journal found that of the 63 candidates on the House Democrats’ campaign arm’s list of seats to flip in November, 62 support expanded background checks for gun purchases.”
Of course that’s not all they “support.” We know from statements made by gun-grabbers that the goal is evisceration of the right to keep and bear arms, with no less a figure than House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi lauding a “slippery slope” and former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens advocating repeal of the Second Amendment. The mask should be off on what the end game on guns is for anyone paying attention.
But that’s the problem — most people aren’t, including most gun owners. What little they know they get from “mainstream news” sources pushing a citizen disarmament agenda. At the same time, smaller alternative voices are being suppressed by social media and rigged search engine algorithms.
So in the furtherance of their goals, the gun-grabbers offer “baby steps,” and repackage their blatant infringements as “commonsense gun safety laws.” Doing it that way, along with plenty of illusory emotional appeal produced with slick and fake Madison Avenue-generated “PSA’s,” they start with proposals that sound reasonable on the surface to anyone who hasn’t looked any deeper.
That’s why “pragmatic” gun-grabbers are emphasizing “universal background checks.” Never mind that what they’re really claiming is ceding to government the power to forbid the private sale of property.
Never mind that it won’t make one bit of difference with the criminal population. Never mind that the same totalitarians who think they can control guns crossing borders demand open borders. Never mind that the National Institute of Justice has admitted:
Effectiveness depends on the ability to reduce straw purchasing, requiring gun registration…
And we know where registration leads, but for now, “baby steps”…
Like expanding the list of “prohibited persons” to include prior restraints and due process denials to those accused — but not proven beyond a reasonable doubt — of being ineligible to own a gun…
And then questioning why anyone NEEDS this firearm or that magazine or ammunition or accessory…
And we get back to the problem identified a few paragraphs up: The same people who will go to the polls swayed by the propaganda have no clue they’re being manipulated. “Democracy” really does rely on the forehead-slapping level of ignorance we laugh at in Mark Dice videos.
How do we inform our countrymen in time, so they don’t blindly fall for a birthright swindle that takes us along with them?
It can’t be done – and it won’t be done – unless you are a force multiplier. It’s up to you to share information with those in your sphere of influence. Regularly. No one can or will do it for you. If you don’t do it, it won’t get done.
And if it doesn’t get done, the choices, efforts and sacrifices you and yours will face will be a lot more difficult and final than sharing links to information the DSM suppresses Or recruiting members and kicking in a few bucks to support worthy efforts…
