Democrats finally show true colors
To the editor:
Well, Tex Kennedy, the fake Hispanic, is in trouble with the rest of the Democrats running for president. His crime? Telling the truth about the Democrats’ real agenda, something never allowed until after an election, if at all.
But there he was: “Damn right we’re going to take away your AR-15s, your AK-47s.” He didn’t specify exactly who “we” is and whether or not he’d be in on the actual taking away. (I’d buy a ticket to watch that.) Or maybe it won’t be necessary, he says we’ll just turn them over.
Don Lemon: “So you’re saying that people will just hand over their guns?”
Beto O’Rourke: “I know, it’s crazy, right? But everywhere I go, people come up to me and say, ‘Come and take them!’”
I don’t know what is so “Kennedyesque” about Beto, as some have claimed. Granted, he has been known to drive while drunk and flee the scene of an accident, but that’s about it. He hasn’t killed anyone yet, as far as I know.
Democrats blame the guns, even though a gun by itself is perfectly harmless. Guns have to be in the hands of a person in order to pose any danger. And not just any person, but a person willing to kill someone else.
So the question is, why do we have so many such people? I can think of two reasons off the top of my head: mental illness and the breakdown of the family.
We used to institutionalize the mentally ill, often against their will. But a few decades ago the left decided that wasn’t fair, so it is not so common these days. In addition, our youth today are bombarded with politically correct lies that could drive anyone off the deep end. The world will end in (take your pick) years from climate change; there are (again, take your pick) genders, and you can be any one of them just by pretending; the U.S. is a horrible, racist country responsible for most of the world’s troubles; masculinity is “toxic,” and other vile lies. Is it any wonder that they occasionally snap?
The stable family unit is rapidly becoming a vanishing breed, thanks to LBJ’s “Oh, Great!” Society, which replaced the father with a government check. Every wise man knows that women have traditionally had a civilizing influence on males, demanding that they prove themselves responsible adults who will take care of them and any children. When women give up this gatekeeper role (by sharing their bodies with boys) the society produces immature boys in the bodies of men. We see the results of this every week in Southside Chicago, with 2,000 shootings already this year, that with some of the nation’s strictest gun laws.
But, says the left, Chicago’s violence is “due to lax gun laws in surrounding areas.” OK, but why then do those “surrounding areas” not have Chicago’s level of gun violence? A: Because they do not have Chicago’s residents.
Democrats are, as usual, misdiagnosing the problem, a problem caused largely by their own policies, and thus proposing the wrong remedy. They say we can’t go door-to-door and deport 20 million illegal aliens, but somehow they can go door-to-door and confiscate 400 million legally owned firearms from law-abiding citizens. Good luck with that.
