Liberals Remind Me of the Viet Cong
David A. Lombardo 6/11/2016
Liberals remind me of the Viet Cong: relentless, ruthless, chaotic and willing to chip away forever at whatever happens to be their cause. Liberals talk about tolerance, being inclusive and accepting people for who they are, unless who you are isn’t who they think you should be.
Liberals believe the end justifies the means and will lie, cheat, steal and use the federal government to intimidate anyone at all to further their goal. If a conservative so much as raises a finger, the liberal propaganda machine goes into full force to discredit them. Worst of all, liberals are pseudo-intellectuals who firmly believe they know what’s best for everyone else because the talking points tell them so and they’ve personally amassed shelves full of trophies and plaques extolling their virtues for attending some event.
Liberals unabashedly make up their own facts to support the hypothesis they wish to impose upon everyone else. Their hopes and schemes are aimed at desensitizing John Q. Public to the point the masses will fall lockstep under liberal control so they will be saved from some idiotic, made-up liberal threat such as global warming, oil drilling disasters and, of course, guns, which brings me to the point.
Earlier this week the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit issued a decision in Peruta v. the County of San Diego in which Peruta challenged California’s capricious concealed carry laws. The plaintiffs sued the San Diego County Sheriff, challenging the state’s “good cause” requirement for obtaining a concealed carry license, which, as interpreted by San Diego, requires some very special threat of harm to the applicant. Inexplicably only Hollywood movers-and-shakers and politicians seem to meet that standard.
In true liberal fashion the federal appeals court ruled the Second Amendment does not permit Americans to carry firearms in public. The en banc ruling strikes down a 2014 decision that the right to carry a firearm is guaranteed by the Second Amendment.
The ruling, written by Judge William Fletcher, declares, “Based on the overwhelming consensus of historical sources, we conclude that the protection of the Second Amendment-whatever the scope of that protection may be-simply does not extend to the carrying of concealed firearms in public by members of the general public.”
Be damned the Supreme Court’s Heller decision. Be damned the words of the Second Amendment. Be damned the many written documents from the founding fathers who opined at length about the fear of a tyrannical government and the absolute necessity for John Q to be sufficiently armed to throw off the cloak of tyranny should it enshroud the citizenry.
Of course the overwhelming consensus of historical sources suggest concealed carry isn’t a right when you pick and choose isolated quotes, hark back to several-hundred-years-old British Monarchy law and garnish it with liberal conjecture. These people are shameless, and they’re bent on disarming John Q at any cost. So now the citizens of California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Hawaii, Arizona, Idaho and Montana have to contend with this nonsense. As an aside I can’t wait to see how the good people of Arizona, Idaho and Montana react to this. Who knows? Maybe Americans will give the Viet Cong a run for their money one more time.
