Published

Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke’s comments calling for the confiscation of AR-15s has ignited political debate on social media in the aftermath of the recent Democratic Party debate.

Tensions on both sides have been so high that O’Rourke supporters on social media are now calling for Texas State Representative Briscoe Cain’s arrest.

BLP covered how Cain made waves by stating that “My AR is ready for you Robert Francis” after  O’Rourke declared on Twitter, “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15s.”

On a Facebook post shared by The Washington Post, O’Rourke’s most rabid supporters pounced on Cain immediately.

 

O’Rourke received what he described as a “death threat” from a fellow Texas politician.

Posted by Washington Post on Friday, September 13, 2019

 

One poster said, “I stand by Beto! He makes sense and has displayed courage! Weapons of war have no business in the hands of private citizens.”

Another poster even called for Cain’s arrest stating, “Your own statesman threatening your life.? Really? Have him arrested, vote him out of office! Come on Texans? Is this your best?” 

Similarly, another user left a comment calling for the FBI to arrest Cain. She said, “Well, I hope the FBI comes knocking on the door of that Texas politician. Beto just proved why they shouldn’t be in the hands of the public. Those guns are meant to kill people. They should not be on the streets or in the homes of Americans. End of.”

Political debate has stayed heated since the El Paso shootings in August. Politicians from across the political spectrum have called for gun control legislation ranging from universal background checks to red flag laws.

However, O’Rourke has pushed the envelope by advocating for the direct confiscation of AR-15s.

O’Rourke is at the bottom of the polls right now, but his latest anti-gun declarations represents the most radical element of the Democratic Party’s anti-gun agenda.

It could be a matter of years before the rest of the Democratic Party follows suit and starts advocating for gun confiscation.

Black Rifle Coffee Does Not Support Second Amendment Hero Kyle Rittenhouse

At this Time, Cons

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.
