Bernie Sanders Uses New Zealand Shooting to Call for ‘Assault Weapon’ Ban

The socialist is indicating that he would be an enemy of the Bill of Rights if he obtains the presidency.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has wasted no time exploiting the tragedy in New Zealand to push his socialist agenda to eviscerate the Bill of Rights and invalidate the Second Amendment of the Constitution.

Sanders is calling for the ban of so-called assault rifles, one of which was used by killer Brenton Tarrant as he slaughtered 50 Muslims during last week’s terrorist assault at two New Zealand mosques:

He is joined by far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who applauded New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Arden for not even waiting for the bodies to get cold before announcing a firearm ban.

While it is expected for a radical socialist to oppose gun rights, Sanders does have a record of standing for the 2nd Amendment in the past. His home state of Vermont has a rural culture that supports gun rights, and Sanders – always the pandering politician – played to that constituency to stay in public office.

Sanders has frequently shown a willingness to support gun rights if he feels it may help him boost his independent credentials. He actually voted against the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act when it came up on the US House floor back in 1993. He also voted in favor of legislation protecting gun manufacturers from frivolous lawsuits designed to put them out of business as a Senator.

Now that he thinks he might be able to win the Presidency, Sanders is aggressively disavowing his previous record of actually standing for the Constitution. He made it clear from his announcement speech for his 2020 presidential run that crushing firearm freedom is a central tenet of his divisive campaign of class warfare.

“I’m running for president because we must end the epidemic of gun violence in this country. We need to take on the NRA, expand background checks, end the gun show loophole, and ban the sale and distribution of assault weapons,” Sanders said.

Radical Marxists can always be relied upon to turn their backs on freedom when it counts. The rise of Sanders as a viable presidential contender is emblematic of the new radical shift the Democratic Party is taking. The only thing standing in the way of their extreme socialism is President Donald Trump.

Black Rifle Coffee Does Not Support Second Amendment Hero Kyle Rittenhouse

At this Time, Conservatives Cannot Afford to be Timid

Published

on

Black Rifle Coffee, a coffee company based in Salt Lake City, is not defending 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.

The company said that it was against a tweet that Blaze Media reporter, Elijah Schaeffer,  posted that featured Rittenhouse wearing a Black Rifle Coffee Company shirt captioned “Kyle Rittenhouse drinks the best coffee in America.” Rittenhouse was released on November 20, 2020 after supporters were able to raise $2 million for his bail. 

In the tweet, Schaeffer posted a discount code for the coffee. Sara Tabin of The Salt Lake Tribune noted that online Twitter users “questioned whether the coffee company had a sponsorship deal with Rittenhouse and accused it of supporting murder and hate.”

This prompted Black Rifle Coffee, the sponsor of the Slightly Offens*ve podcast, to release a statement on November 21 declaring that it is not sponsoring or supporting Rittenhouse.

Initially, there was a misunderstanding about the company withdrawing its sponsorship of Slightly Offens*ve. However, a spokesperson for the company told the Salt Lake Tribune on November 21 that “We are not fluctuating our ad spend.” The coffee spokesperson added “We did have a conversation with Schaffer, and he understands that the post was a mistake.”

She stressed, “We don’t traffic in national tragedy and to us, that’s what this is. We are not legal experts or members of law enforcement. We fully support all law enforcement officials and believe in the integrity of the legal system.”

The spokesperson reiterated that the company will maintain its sponsorship of Blaze Media. She explained: “Our concern is that use of the discount code in the post did not reflect our values. That’s a concern we’ve addressed with the journalist and that he understands.”

Blaze employees “make decisions about how to allocate ad dollars within the Blaze,” she remarked. Although the spokesperson did not go into further detail about the company’s status as a podcast sponsor, it noted that the coffee company and the Blaze are in talks about “how to move forward with the allocation of ad dollars.”

Black Rifle Coffee positions itself as a pro-Second Amendment, conservative company that was founded by veterans. Black Rifle Coffee co-founder Evan Hafer released a statement on November 21 declaring that “We do not support legal advocacy efforts. We do not sponsor nor do we have a relationship with the 17-year-old facing charges in Kenosha, WI.”

At the moment, Rittenhouse is facing two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot back in August. In addition, he’s being charged with one count of being a minor in possession of a firearm. During the riots, Rittenhouse was attacked by Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse was carrying an AR-style rifle as he was walking down the street to protect private property from looters.

It is disappointing to see supposedly pro-Second Amendment businesses fold to the mob. Although the Left is very effective at mass politics and causing certain businesses to get cancelled, some businesses will have to take a stand. Submission to these radicals only encourages them to become bolder in their attacks.
