Rick Scarborough’s Tea Party Unity group hailed the recall of two Colorado Democratic state senators whom were targeted by gun activists over their support for tough gun laws by likening the lawmakers to the 9/11 hijackers. Tea Party Unity, which recently hosted an event honoring Rick Santorum and American Family Association founder Don Wildmon, published a column originally posted on the Tea Party Tribune on how the Colorado recall is “a fitting commemoration of 9/11.”
Tea Party activist Stephen Nemo said that Colorado voters rose up against the “gun grabbers” just like the passengers of United Airlines Flight 93 and colonists fighting the British.
There is a reason I describe Colorado’s recall as a fitting commemoration of 9/11. That September morning twelve years ago, average citizens aboard United Airlines flight 93 fought the first battle against jihadists in America. The terrorists were determined to destroy our way of life, the freedoms we enjoy – our rights as individuals. American freedom is in direct conflict with the jihadist’s submissive, dictatorial ideology.
“Are you guys ready?” telephone operator Lisa Jefferson heard United passenger Todd Beamer say. “Let’s roll.”
Jihadists piloting the airliner were so alarmed by the unarmed but determined Americans charging them, they crashed the hijacked airplane into an open field in Pennsylvania in a last desperate act. It’s believed Beamer and his fellow warriors stopped al Qaeda terrorist from crashing the commandeered craft into the Capitol Building or the White House. Beamer led what our Founders defined as a “well-regulated militia.”
At the Battle of Lexington in 1775, American militiaman John Munroe told a fellow soldier, “I’ll give them the guts of my gun” as he lifted his musket to fire on the advancing red line of British troops. The Red Coats, you see, were under orders to confiscate the “guts” of Munroe’s gun in order to secure the conceits of a petty, royal tyrant.
Thomas Jefferson said, “The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it.” Colorado’s petty tyrants tried to take a cherished right from their people and paid the price for their conceit at the ballot box.
Coloradans from every walk of life, crossing party lines, said “No” to the gun grabbers …
… and “Yes” to unalienable rights.
