As The Daily Wire reported this week, the San Fran Board of Supervisors voted to declare the National Rifle Association a “terrorist” organization as they continue to harbor an unhealthy hatred for an advocacy group that hasn’t murdered anyone and only seeks to ensure more people don’t get killed by stark-raving lunatics.
As noted further by Fox News:
The resolution, which passed Tuesday and says the U.S. is “plagued by an epidemic of gun violence,” accuses the NRA of using “its considerable wealth and organization strength to promote gun ownership and incite gun owners to acts of violence.”
Further, “All countries have violent and hateful people,” the resolution continues, “but only in America do we give them ready access to assault weapons and large-capacity magazines thanks, in large part, to the National Rifle Association’s influence.”
So — when big labor unions lobby for higher-paying jobs that result in companies charging consumers more for their products, does that make them economic terrorists? Or just a special interest looking out for its membership? (Related: NRA field editor: Obama has ‘divided us on course for a civil war’.)
While that comparison is sorta apples-to-oranges because the NRA is protecting a constitutional right, you get the idea. Yet to the San Fran board, when a pro-gun, pro-liberty organization tries to defend our rights, it’s terrorism. And we bet they passed this resolution under the protection of men and women with guns and “assault” rifles (namely police officers — whom the Left hates as well).
Meanwhile, these same Marxists who have disdain for portions of the Bill of Rights have no problem with the murder of tens of thousands of babies every year because of a ‘woman’s right to choose’ — to kill her unborn child.
As SGT Report notes:
Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion mill, is systemically engaged all across the country in the shameless promotion and enactment of taxpayer-funded prenatal infanticide.
The site notes further that San Fran’s designation of the NRA as a terrorist group could lead a conservative community — say, Oklahoma City — to declare Planned Parenthood a terrorist group. And so on the exchange goes.
“…[I]t is shameful for the woke white liberal denizens of San Francisco to disingenuously defame a decorated, longstanding civil rights group — one founded in the aftermath of the Civil War to, in part, secure the newly enshrined constitutional rights of black freedmen — with such a label,” SGT Report added.
None of this ‘reason’ will matter. The authoritarians at the San Francisco gate have spoken. Guns in the hands of citizens: Bad. The NRA lobbying to protect and defend the Second Amendment: Bad.
Planned Parenthood’s murder of the unborn: Good. Human waste, drug abuse, homelessness, and crime in the streets: Good. Perpetuating the ‘haves’ and ‘have-nots’ that the Left claims to hate: Good (ever tried to buy a house in San Fran let alone rent one?).
What else does the Left hate that America was founded and built upon? God and Christianity. Dad-mom families. Individual responsibility. Corporate profits (unless they are being generated by the same Silicon Valley paying all the bills in California). And traditional American values of self-sufficiency, self-defense, and self-sacrifice.
The American Left is no different than the Communist Left, the Nazi Left, the Soviet Left, or the Marxist Left: They abhor the one country that stands in the way of global tyranny…with an armed citizenship.
