WorldNetDaily columnist Erik Rush recently appeared on Hannity where, during a debate over Bob Costas’ commentary on gun violence, he got into a shouting match with radio host Leo Terrell and repeatedly yelled at him to “shut up.” Writing at WND, Rush claims that the left is to blame for urban crime: “It is the destructive social policies of the left that have precipitated the dysfunction that leads to violence in the black community…. Societal dysfunction fostered by the left has led to increasing levels of violence, some of which is perpetrated with firearms.”
Rush concludes that “radical Marxists” in the Obama administration hope to “foster” gun violence to justify their plan to “disarm Americans,” which will allow them to “manifest their decades-long dream of a Marxist America.”
While this argument that Obama is intentionally increasing gun violence in order to take away guns is absurd on its place, even Mitt Romney and House Oversight Chair Darrell Issa have given a nod to the conspiracy theory that the Fast and Furious operation was intentionally botched in order to give the administration an excuse to pursue gun control policies.
Liberal blacks who defend gun control on the basis of violent crime in the inner cities are also off base in overlooking that these urban areas have been under the complete political control of liberals for decades. It is the destructive social policies of the left that have precipitated the dysfunction that leads to violence in the black community.
Indoctrinated blacks, of course, do not see the method behind the madness and thus eagerly embrace the simpleton’s impossible fix: Erase guns from the equation. Like so many other Americans, blacks also accept at face value politicians’ feigned concern for our safety.
As we have seen from years of tedious gun-control arguments and activism – some of which have resulted in significant capitulation even from ostensible defenders of the Second Amendment – it matters little that there is no correlation whatsoever between the availability of guns and violent crime. Guns have always been plentiful in America – so why the increasing drive to control them? Simple: Societal dysfunction fostered by the left has led to increasing levels of violence, some of which is perpetrated with firearms.
Once again, we have a problem liberals have created, and which they now intend to “solve” through the stultification of our civil liberties – always for our own good.
The bottom line is that Americans need to wake up to the fact that (as I also said on “Hannity”) all gun-control measures are efforts on the part of the political left to disarm Americans. As governments have known for millennia, unarmed populations are infinitely easier to control than armed ones. This effort will continue to move “Forward,” particularly since Barack Obama was re-elected.
The Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America was intended to facilitate citizens’ protection from a tyrannical government should the occasion ever arise. In layman’s terms, this means militarily engaging the operatives of a criminal regime – with guns. The current administration is bristling with radical Marxists, and I would wager that 80 percent of Americans aren’t even capable of conceptualizing the lengths to which they are prepared to go to manifest their decades-long dream of a Marxist America.
