The tomb is empty, Christ has risen. Happy Easter.
It has been almost seven days, almost an entire week, sense a lone student attempted to slay 22 individuals at a Pittsburgh High School, and the people of this nation are silent. Not a single soul has stood up to demand that our government find a way to defend our children from such reckless violence. 21 students sent to the hospital, their lives forever altered, and no one has offered up a serious proposal to prevent it from happening again. It is outrageous that so many are sitting silent.
There were almost instantaneous demands for action after the New Town tragedy. The smoke had barely cleared and Diane Feinstein and the like were up on their high horses demanding action be taken to prevent another tragedy. They demanded that new gun control legislation be in acted to protect our children from maniacs. Where is Senator Feinstein now? Where is President Obama now? Why are they not demanding action be taken by the government? Do these progressives not care about the students in Pittsburgh? Is their pain not something worth dealing with? Or is it that this tragedy does not further their radical agenda?
When a school shooting occurs the progressives roll up their sleeves and jump to action. The sirens are still waling in the background when their first demands for new gun control legislation spew from their lips. It was the guns fault that those children were shot. It was the guns fault that they died. It was our racists founding fathers who idiotically gave us “rights” that led to the tragedy. Clearly the only option is to ban guns, strip us of our “outdated rights”, and relinquish our security to the hands of the government.
So if school shootings are prevented by eliminating firearms, why is it that when a massive rampage with a knife occurs Ms. Feinstein does not jump up and demand new knife control legislation? Why is she not demanding federal restrictions on the sizes of fixed blades, and demanding registrations for all those who carry pocket knifes? Why has the President not called for common sense knife legislation, requiring background checks on those who wish to purchase such a deadly weapon?
The answer is simple. First banning knives, or restricting our right to carry one, would no more prevent massacres such as the one in Pittsburgh, than restricting firearms would have prevented New Town, or limiting the size of soft drinks would keep you from getting fat. Second, the progressives do not benefit from banning knives. They do not disarm the population, or remove a final check on federal tyranny. Not only would demanding for knife legislation not make it easier to subjugate the American People, it would further destroy their creditably.
Progressives call for gun control for two main reasons. The first is that they want the people to be subjects to the government, rather than the government being a servant to the people. An armed populous makes, that much harder to do (of course progressive zealots will always beg to differ with that point). The second reason, is that they can use their usurpation of our rights as a political tool, a sword to stab into their conservative enemies. They say things like “Those evil tea bagging conservatives hate children. They don’t care about their safety. They would rather protect their guns, then the lives of children.” Of course, this is an outrageous lie, but it is a successful marketing trick.
Typically what happens when the progressives start their, “conservatives hate children” speech, is that conservatives come out and explain simple facts that disprove the progressives radical theories. We discuss for instance how gun control legislation typically leads to higher crime rates. How so called “common sense reforms” typically end with total confiscation. We discuss the fact that states that allow people to carry fire arms have seen crime rates go down, not up. The progressive respond by saying that Conservatives just want things to remain the way they are. Conservatives respond with calls to fix our society, to help those with mental illness. Progressives respond with more emotional arguments devoid of a factual base.This continues for a while, then things go back to the way they where.
Obviously, banning/restricting knives is not going to serve the primary reason that progressives exploit mass shootings. However, one would think that they could still use banning/restricting knives to meet the secondary purpose. So why haven’t they? Why haven’t they called for more restrictions on knives. Surely this would help to divert some attention away from obamacare, an issue that will see President Barack Obama made a lame duck President. Yet again, the answer is simple, and painfully obvious. Calling for knife control is ridiculous, and the American People would never buy it.
We have been conditioned by the progressives for years to think that guns are bad. Many people do not own firearms, so to many they are a mystery. People fear what they don’t understand, so it is easy for progressives to demonize firearms. Knives on the other hand, are something we use on a daily basis. We can see people can see their practical uses, and see that they are not tools of death and destruction. People are not afraid of knives. So blaming the injuries of the students in this tragedy on the knife rather than the mental state of the one committing the atrocity becomes a hard trick to pull off. People see the knives in their kitchen, then have a hard time linking it to a tool of death. They would then simply see the progressive’s demands for knife control to be outrageous, exposing them for the radicals they really are.
If progressive’s truly believed that the key to preventing school shootings was banning guns, they would also believe that the key to preventing mass stabbings would be to ban knives. Clearly that is not the case. Think about that next time one of these radicals, or their zealots, comes up to you demanding gun control legislation.
Harry Reid has to be one of the most despicable creatures walking the Earth. The depths of his corruption know no bounds, he’d ice skate with the devil to protect his political hide. The wretched Senator from Nevada has shown us time and time again that his heart is a barren waste land devoid of compassion or decency. Now he has once again shown us that his soul is also devoid of honor and virtue. Senator Harry Reid actually took to the floor of the Senate and accused the Republicans of calling him a liar. Rather than me paraphrasing let us allow Mr. Reid’s own words to tell the story.
Wednesday March 26th, 2014 Senator Harry Reid took to the Senate floor and said, “Mr. President, the junior senator from Wyoming has come to the floor several times talking about the fact that examples that he and other Republicans have given dealing with Obamacare, examples that they think are bad, I’ve called lies.” Mr. Reid then continued, “Mr. President, that is simply untrue. I have never come to the floor to my recollection, and never said a word about any of the examples that Republicans have given regarding Obamacare and how its not very good.”
How does this wretched sack of putrid filth live with himself, the smell of his rotting soul would be enough to drive any decent human being mad. This is a flat out lie, there is no defending it. This is a pathetic attempt by a corrupt thug to try and cover up his outrageous claims on the Senate floor. Before the progressive zealots rally to his aid, allow me to remind everyone of Senator Reid’s words just one month prior.
On February 26th, 2014 Senator Reid said, “Despite all that good news, there’s plenty of horror stories being told. All of them are untrue, but they’re being told all over America.” So here he is in black and white, telling the world that all the horror stories about Obamacare are lies. Of course, he didn’t actually mention Republicans… wait he did, Senator Harry Reid went on to say, “We heard about the evils of Obamacare, about the lives it’s ruining in Republicans’ stump speeches and in ads paid for by oil magnates, the Koch brothers. But in those tales, turned out to be just that: tales, stories made up from whole cloth, lies distorted by the Republicans to grab headlines or make political advertisements.” These are his words, he said them, on the Senate Floor. He said them in front of a camera. It is there for all the world to see. He was lying in February and he was lying in March. The man is nothing but pestilent trash, unfit for office.
This is the nature of progressives, and this is the exact reason why this November is so important. This man, this worthless waste of flesh has been holding not just this nation, or the government, but the democratic principles upon which our republican form of government operates hostage. His vitriolic rhetoric, and rampant partisanship have brought this country to a stand still. He brought us to the brink of collapse, when out of pure partisan hatred, he refused to allow bills passed by the House to even be heard on the Senate Floor. This act of selfishness, shut down the government, a threat that the Democrats love to wave over our heads. Did Senator Reid get any of the blame for the actions of his iron fist, of course not, the blame was assigned to the House of Representatives, and Republicans. The House remind you, being the only aspect of government that has shown any willingness to compromise, received the blame for Harry Reid’s actions. Why? The answer is simple, his soft spoken demeanor makes him easy for the media to defend. It is easy for the media to paint him as a soft spoken, rational man, something the American People are looking for in this divisive age. When in reality he is a thug, a tyrant, bent on maintaining his own power.
Harry Reid is the Soft Spoken Tyrant of The Senate. He is the Man who shut down the United States government out of partisan spite. He is the man who when asked about restoring funding for children’s cancer research said, “why would I want to do that?” And he is the man who thinks that the American People, that you, are dumb enough to believe his lies on the Senate Floor. Every time I think the progressive thugs in Washington have sunk to the bottom of the abyss, every time I think that they have run out ways to astound me with their arrogance, somehow they find a way to surprise me yet again. The fact that Harry Reid thinks that he can walk out on the Senate Floor and say, “I have never said that”, and that the American People will buy it, just blows my mind. We have his words, we have the video of him calling the GOP liars, and blaming these horror stories on those evil Koch Brothers (who rank 59th on the list of campaign donors from 1989-2014).
I ask you how can our nation function as a Republic if we allow scum like Harry Reid to control it? How can we be a beacon of hope to the rest of the world, with in human monsters like him representing us? This man has had control of the Senate for far to long. His reign of mocking the American People, and defacing the Senate Chamber has gone on long enough. 2014 is our chance to restore some decency to the Senate, to remove the obstacle that has been stopping progress. 2014 is our chance to return power to the people of this country.
You have a choice, you can side with The Soft Spoken Tyrant of The Senate, the man who looks down upon you as nothing but mindless peasants, or you can stand for Liberty and the promise that our Republic holds. The choice is yours.
