A Trojan Horse for gun control was elected as Senator on November 3, 2020.
And his name is Mark Kelly. Mark Kelly became Senator-elect by defeating incumbent Senator Matha McSally by a 51.7 to 48.3 margin. In doing so, Arizona now has two Democrat Senators for the first time since 1953.
This was one of the very few bright spots in a night where Democrats underperformed expectations for picking up seats in the Senate, House, and even state level seats across the country. The media narrative was that Democrats would make overwhelming gains in the House, retake the Senate, and even flip several state legislatures. None of that materialized on November 3.
However, the only win that Democrats could cling on to was in Arizona when Kelly took down incumbent Republican Senator Martha McSally. McSally was a weak candidate who did not inspire much energy from the grassroots. In addition, demographic tailwinds such as Arizona’s growing Hispanic population and college-educated professionals helped Democrats flip the Senate.
Kelly ran a relatively smart campaign by focusing on “science-based decision-making, affordable health care and insurance coverage for preexisting medical conditions against the backdrop of a lethal pandemic”, according to the Arizona Republic. He did not make overtures to the radical Left or join in on the Black Lives Matter hysteria.
The former astronaut is the husband of former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who ended up forming Giffords, one of the fastest growing gun control lobbies in the country. Although Kelly was rather silent about gun control on the campaign trail, this was likely a political ploy to obscure his otherwise anti-gun platform. After all, this is Arizona we’re talking about, one of the most pro-gun states in the country.
However, once in office, politicians are capable of doing anything if voters are caught sleeping. For his part, Kelly’s website indicates that he’s in favor of universal background checks and other “commonsense” forms of gun safety. The latter phrase is the new euphemism that the gun control crowd is using to obfuscate the real aim of their agenda — civilian disarmament.
From a bigger picture standpoint, conservatives will have to make sure that both of Georgia’s special elections in early January don’t go the Democrats’ way. A 50-50, with Kamala Harris as the tie-breakers will make gun control a potential reality. Democrats are practically unified on the issue, and Kelly will likely play a crucial role in casting one of the decisive votes for gun control now that he’s heading into Congress.
Black Rifle Coffee Does Not Support Second Amendment Hero Kyle Rittenhouse
At this Time, Cons
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.
