The February 14th Parkland, Florida school shooting continues to embolden the fascistic Left.
On MSNBC's Deadline: White House Thursday, New York Times writer Bret Stephens joined host Nicolle Wallace to throw out any pretense of not "coming for America's guns." To the contrary, the dynamic Democratic duo made things absolutely clear: you have no right to own a firearm.
According to Wallace, citizens opposing gun control -- once "civilized" -- have become "repugnant." Furthermore, those repulsive proponents have been fighting for something that American liberty should absolutely not afford them:
"There is something kind of aggressively and inhumanly repetitive about this line that guns are essential to American liberties – a hard one to stomach when so many thousands of people are dying every year for this so-called ‘liberty."
Uhh, no, Bret -- the desire to defend oneself is not "a hard one to stomach." Only in your leftist, elitist bubble may it seem so. Furthermore, what about personal transportation? Is that a right worth fighting for? It's a freedom which crashed and crumpled 40,000 Americans to death in 2017. How's your stomach feeling about driving?
Incredibly, Wallace seconded Stephens's portrayal of the 2nd Amendment as a "so-called" freedom:
"How do the voices of law enforcement, the voices of the victims...on -- I agree with you -- a so-called 'right' not break through this time?"
So, the voices of the victims are not heard, if one desires to retain the right to protect oneself? If there were no legally-owned guns -- if there was no "so-called right" of law-abiding citizens to own firearms -- there would be more victims. Not fewer. But don't expect the left-wing radicals to understand such common sense. They're too busy with their culture clash, their war with mainstream America, dismissing those who value the 2nd Amendment as part of one of the greatest treasures of this country: the Bill of Rights.
"Well there doesn't seem to be even a moment of silence and compassion and thoughtfulness on the part of gun advocates for what has happened."
That comment is hard to stomach.
