Anti-Gun Activists are Outraged Over Pro-Gun Lawmaker’s “Sexist” Behavior

Published

Gun control activists were enraged at a handful of male lawmakers wearing pearl necklaces at a gun control hearing in the New Hampshire House of Representatives.

During arguments over a red flag confiscation bill, the cameras focused on the male lawmakers donning necklaces.

Like clockwork, accusations of sexism were lobbed at the lawmakers.

In the gun control activists’ view, “These politicians thought gun-control activists were “clutching their pearls” in overwrought and self-righteous outrage — and, specifically, female outrage.”

The gun control advocates, members of the rabidly anti-gun group Moms Demand Action, felt they were mocked.

The founder of Moms Demand Action, Shannon Watt said “It really is shameful to behave that way when your constituents are being brave enough to share their stories.”

Watts added, “They clearly did not come to this hearing with open minds or compassion for their constituents.”

“Red flag” confiscation orders allow family members, acquaintances, and law enforcement to obtain court orders to take away an individual’s firearms with complete disregard to due process. This legislation is the gun control flavor of the week that’s already become law in 14 states.

However, there is more to the story.

Members of the pro-gun Women’s Defense League of New Hampshire came to the defense of three lawmakers, Daryl Abbas, Scott Wallace and David Welch, who wore these pearls. Their members argued that the pearls symbolize opposition to the red flag gun confiscation scheme in question.

In their view, wearing these pearls represents standing up for gun safety and women’s rights. Kimberly Morin, the president of Women’s Defense League of New Hampshire, made this very clear in a tweet:
“The PEARLS are in support of the Women’s Defense League. Women who ACTUALLY PROMOTE GUN SAFETY and WOMEN’S RIGHTS.”
Anti-gun Democrats jumped in on the outrage.
Democratic State Representative Debra Altschiller, the sponsor of the red flag gun confiscation bill, said that her Republican colleagues should have been more considerate to the Moms Demand Action activists.
Altschiller commented on Twitter:
“There are families who have lost loved ones here & this mocking prop shows how little they empathize with suicide.”
Democratic presidential candidates also got their licks in.
New Jersey Senator Cory Booker said, “Moms who want to keep their kids safe from gun violence don’t deserve this.”
California Senator Kamala Harris added,  “These moms are fighting to confront gun violence and protect our children.”
In Harris’s view, these activists “don’t deserve to be mocked.”
Moms Demand Action and their anti-gun cronies doth protest too much. This is clearly a case of sensitive leftists trying to find outrage where it doesn’t exist.
The modern-day Left is offended by practically everything and likes to turn the most casual of behavior into a media-fueled outrage.
The only thing offensive about this situation is the fact that a gun confiscation bill is being introduced.
That should make any freedom-loving American outraged.

Flashback: Ann Coulter Warns Steve Bannon about Donald Trump’s Hires During 2016

Coulter tells it like it is.

Earlier this week, former White House adviser Steve Bannon reached out to President Donald Trump, in an apparent move to reconcile with the president. Bannon was one of the more renowned advisors in the Trump administration who received a lot of attention for his unconventional views. The former White House adviser is likely looking for Trump to pardon him for several federal criminal charges that he is currently facing.

Bannon was one of the strongest contrarian voices on the right who questioned traditional conservative dogma on free trade and immigration. His rise to prominence represented a raw, populist anger that was building within the Republican Party base. Bannon ended up leaving the Trump administration after the infamous Charlottesville rally. This left a massive void for populist voices within the Trump brain trust, which was never adequately filled with populist figures.

Most of the strong populist voices during the Trump era came from the outside. Conservative commentator Ann Coulter has been one of the leading figures trying to steer populist discourse in America.Although a harsh critic, Coulter did her best to hold President Trump accountable and watch his every move, especially personnel decisions that did not align with his America first vision. To the average pro-Trump individual, Coulter’s criticism may come off as abrasive, but it was and still is  necessary to have a viable nationalist movement.

As a reminder to her followers about how she knew that there were subversive elements in the Trump administration who wanted to gut the president’s America First agenda and pursue more traditional Republican policies, she tweeted about email correspondence she had with Bannon dating back to December 2, 2016. In light of the rapprochement between Bannon and Trump, Coulter called attention to how she warned the former White House adviser about some of the latter’s questionable staffing decisions during the early stages of his presidency.

Coulter tweeted, “No, actually, I knew Trump was betraying us pretty early on – and that it would cost him re-election. My December 2, 2016 email to Steve Bannon:”

In an email sent on December 2, 2016 with a subject line titled “ghost of christmas future”, Coulter warned then-White House adviser Bannon about some of Trump’s hiring decisions.

She first noted that “the fact that Trump is even CONSIDERING rep. Mccaul (rubio in the house) for homeland — and is NOT considering kobach— tells me we’re not getting any major deportations, no removal of refugees, no e-verify, no end to end anchor babies… and trump will be dead.

also, “mad dog” isn’t going to build a wall.”

She was referring to Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, a known mass migration booster and a potential nominee for the head of the Department of Homeland Security. United States Marine Corps General James Matthis would be Trump’s first Secretary of Defense, who ended up turning out to be a Deep State hack. On the other hand, Kris Kobach is a nationally recognized immigration hawk, who gained fame for implementing some of the stiffest voter ID standards in the nation during his time as Secretary of State.

The Trump administration was successful in implementing several administrative changes that limited immigration and also did not get involved in any nation-building engagements like previous administrations.

Nevertheless, Coulter’s incisive suggestions still have use for future Republican administrations. The new GOP should follow Coulter’s pro-migration restriction suggestions if it wants to not only remain politically relevant, but also protect the integrity of America’s political system.
