Interesting that “the Left” is calling themselves out.

By extension, does this apply to “global warming / global kooling / climate change” too?

And all the other Left Wing “causes of outrage” de jour — gun “control”, sexism, racism, etc. etc.

I wonder?

“What do you call it when someone steals someone else’s money secretly? Theft. What do you call it when someone takes someone else’s money openly by force? Robbery. What do you call it when a politician takes someone else’s money in taxes and gives it to someone who is more likely to vote for him? Social justice.” — Thomas Sowell

Cory Booker Displays Profound Ignorance On Gun Laws In Town Hall

*** begin quote ***

Convicted criminals aren’t buying them even from face-to-face transfers from law-abiding citizens, either. Why? Because they don’t want a citizen to ID them. After all, what if the police find out that the gun was sold to Joe Smith, but Joe says he sold it to someone else? Joe is a law-abiding citizen, so the idea of the gun he sold being used in a crime is upsetting. Why yes, Officer, I can give you a description of the guy. In fact, I still have his cell phone number.

That’s bad news in Criminal Land.

*** end quote ***

Three strikes and you’re out.

No one even pretended that “gun control” is anything but disarming the sheep so the wolves can run wild.

In https://www.dailyherald.com/article/20130127/discuss/701279952/, the editors didn’t dispute the statement: “Background checks, no problem. Gun registration is a big problem. Every genocide in modern history has started with a gun registration, followed by confiscation, followed by genocide.” All they did was gripe that it was “plagiarized”.  Argh!  Guess every idea they print is unique?

Remember: “Registration, confiscation, genocide”.  

With the new “red flag” laws popping up all over, we now into step #2.

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? . . .” — Alexander Solzhenitsyn
