Georgia GOP Candidate Rebukes Conservatives, Socialism is Not a “Threat”

Did State Representative Kevin Cooke miss Stacey Abrams’ run for Georgia Governor?

State Representative Kevin Cooke has now thrown his hat into the ring for the open seat in Georgia’s 14th congressional district, which current Congressman Tom Graves is vacating at the end of the year.

Cooke claims to be a small government conservative. However, one statement he made shows a somewhat tone-deaf view of what is going on politically in America.

In a press release that his campaign distributed on Wednesday, January 22, 2020, Cooke stated “Contrary to popular belief, a giant wave of socialism is not the biggest threat facing our nation, but rather it is the slow drift away from our Constitution allowed for decades by BOTH parties that stands to destroy our country.”

Interestingly enough, Cooke voted for an Internet Sales Tax, HB 276 on January 16, 2020. Obviously, this tax will be used to fund more bloated government by robbing Georgia citizens with purchases they make on the internet. Sounds a bit like socialism.

Don’t forget that Georgia almost elected Stacey Abrams, who keynoted a speech for avowed socialists.

That’s what makes Cooke’s ‘socialism isn’t a threat’ claim a real head-scratcher.

Cooke doesn’t even consider or acknowledge the rise of socialism among younger generations of Americans.

According to a YouGov poll, 70 percent of millenials indicated they would vote for a socialist. For Cooke to be oblivious about this trend, speaks ill of his cultural awareness.

In times like these, prospective elected officials should know what cultural threats are emerging and ultimately respond to them in an effective manner.

For all we know, Cooke will likely end up like countless generic conservative candidates who talk a big game about small government, but end up voting with the rest of the political establishment to grow the size of government. Just like he did with the internet sales tax boondoggle, earlier this month.

Cooke joins the 14th district race in a crowded primary highlighted by America First patriot Marjorie Greene.

Greene has received endorsements from Right Women PAC and the House Freedom for Fund, for her staunch conservative values on issues ranging from the right to life to free-market economics.

Additionally, Greene’s staunch support for the Second Amendment is rather important in times when the Left is working hard to de-legitimize the concept of legal gun ownership.

Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation

Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.

If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.

Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional. 

AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.

In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.

At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”

In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.” 

Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”

According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”

When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”

Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
