As a follow-up from yesterday’s “Heroes identified in east Texas tragedy”, it is quite evident after scanning the news leads this morning that the DemoMarxist party, Hollywood and most entertainers, their Big Fake News media and their operatives, especially social media, are the consummate purveyors of hate, violence, death, division, and falsehoods all across this ‘fruited plain’. Especially when it comes to gun control.
Not to use too much sarcasm in my commentary, but the DemoMarxists are the party of poverty, corruption, failed public schools, abortion, and crime-ridden inner cities across America, led by the most stringent gun-controlled of them all, Chicago, which, after this past weekend’s activities, is on the brink of passing 600 killings for the year not yet over.
If nothing else has become abundantly clear since Obama left office and Hollywierd and the DemoMarxist party have been exposed as criminals and hypocrites, the Left has no morality and therefore no access to the moral high ground. Let We the People never forget that, and never let the left think otherwise. The ‘weaponry’ referred to by Obama in yesterday’s piece (ie “May God also grant all of us the wisdom to ask what concrete steps we can take to reduce the violence and weaponry in our midst.”) could be reduced drastically if he and all the leftist political elite would simply just get rid of their bodyguards and security. There. Problem solved.
Thank God that the 2nd Amendment was put in place by the wisdom and foresight of the Founding Fathers. It is there for a very good reason and must be protected and preserved at any and all cost, since it exists solely for the purpose of protecting We the People from what Obama and his acolytes would like to be doing. Basically enslaving us.
Just for the record, the real tragedy here is we already have “sensible gun control laws” on the books that would have prevented the Texas shooter from legally purchasing firearms. Those tasked with enforcing the law(s) dropped the ball. Not once, not twice, but several times.
The Air Force failed to notify the FBI of several transgressions committed by the insane Kelley which then never made it into the national database. While the State of Texas did report violations that would have prevented the shooter from legally obtaining a weapon, it was the Federal government who failed again to update their systems. Rather than write new laws we need to review the competence of those who run the national system of Federal approval of gun sales. No laws on earth work when they are not enforced.
Let’s segue` now to Earick Ward of Conservative Junction and his piece in American Thinker “Liberals’ reaction to Texas church shooting is not about gun control” …
The current clamor for sensible gun control legislation is not about gun control.
Don’t get me wrong – the left will take any and all advances against the Second Amendment, and our constitutional right to bear arms, but that is not what is advancing the current narrative.
No, division and deflection are fomenting the current gun control narrative. By getting out in front of the narrative, and the facts, leftists are attempting to secure the moral high ground. They, and they alone, care about these victims. Republicans, by deduction and assertion, are responsible for the deaths. This is a despicable political ploy, but sadly, we need to come to terms with the fact that nothing is below the Left. Nothing. (See this story, for example.)
Within minutes of the church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas, Chelsea Handler tweeted:
“Innocent people go to church on Sunday to honor their God, and while doing so, get shot and killed. What country? America. Why? Republicans”.Not to be outdone, Barack Obama stated, in what is being described by the media as a solemn tweet:
“We grieve with all the families in Sutherland Springs harmed by this act of hatred, and we’ll stand with the survivors as they recover. … May God also grant all of us the wisdom to ask what concrete steps we can take to reduce the violence and weaponry in our midst”.

It is indeed laughable, and repulsively hypocritical, when Obama attempts to invoke his so-called ‘Christian Faith’ into anything. Remember the infamous interview with George Stephanopoulos who had to correct ‘Muslim’ faith to ‘Christian’. For him, it will always be politics all the time. After all, invoking the values which underpin Western Civilization is a trope to be used as a tool only when needed and for a limited purpose.
Thread commenter with the handle ‘Arthur_Dent’ takes us out with this: “I know I am preaching to the choir here mostly, but keep this in mind when the topic of gun control is being discussed. The 2nd amendment was instituted to give We the People recourse against a tyrannical government, but it is also becoming clear that it provides recourse against an unhinged and tyrannical Left.
“The loser who opened fire on the church was outspoken about hating Christians. Not content to just disagree with them, he felt justified to actually kill them. I fear this is not an isolated incident nor attitude; if the Left were to somehow get our guns, conservatives and Christians would not only be less safe, they would be targeted. It is becoming quite clear that the Nazi atrocities are not something that would never happen again.
“Think FEMA and re-education camps are an impossibility in the United States? The Left has shown they are quite willing to respond violently to those they disagree with. [end]
