Knife Company Stabs Gun Owners in the Back

Published

on

Benchmade Knife Company has received a ton of flack on the Internet lately.

Second Amendment Daily reports that after the knife company was helping local police destroy firearms, gun owners gave the company a piece of their mind.

This news went viral when the Oregon City Police Department released a series of Facebook photos depicting a shotgun and an SKS being chopped into pieces.

The police department’s post read, “Thank you Benchmade Knife Company for assisting us today by cutting up guns that are ready to be destroyed.”

Uproar from social media and gun forums forced the Oregon City Police Department to quickly take down the post.

Oregon City Police Department attempted to do damage control in light of this outrage with a follow-up post:

Benchmade then tried to rationalize their decision to help destroy firearms in a post of their own:

“Benchmade is aware of the recent post from our local Oregon City Police Department.

We apologize for the confusion and concern that this post created. These were firearms that the Oregon City Police Department had to destroy in alignment with their policies. Oregon City Police requested the use of specialty equipment within the Benchmade facility to follow these requirements, and as a supporting partner of our local police force, we obliged the request.

Benchmade is a proud and unwavering supporter of both law enforcement and Second Amendment rights. These are commitments that we do not take lightly and will continue to support well into the future.

When asked for clarity from Oregon City Police Department, Chief Jim Band made the following statement: “When property is to be destroyed, it is the policy of the Oregon City Police Department to destroy property, including firearms, in accordance to our procedures and ORS. The Oregon City Police Department does not sell firearms.”

However, the rabbit hole goes deeper….

A report from OpenSecrets.org shows that Benchmade has been donating to anti-gun Democrats in recent elections.

The most notable recipient of Benchmade contributions was U.S. Congressman Kurt Schrader (D-OR). Schrader is currently one of the co-sponsors of H.R. 8, this year’s Universal Background Check bill, a bill that is at the top of Nancy Pelosi’s wish list.

Oregon is one of the recent gun control battleground states. The state took a sharp anti-gun direction in 2017 by passing red flag gun confiscation orders. However, Oregon gun owners made their presence felt in 2018 by keeping “assault weapons” and high-capacity magazines bans from going on the ballot, while also approving Second Amendment Preservation Ordinances in eight counties.

Benchmade’s gun control gaffe is just the latest trend of corporate virtue signaling in favor of gun control. However, these moves have proven to be detrimental for Dick’s Sporting Goods, as reports showed a decrease in sales for the outdoor company.

We can expect the same for Benchmade’s sales after this gun control incident.

Hitting anti-gun companies’ wallets is how Second Amendment supporters can keep corporate gun control at bay.

UT Professor Gets Fired for Calling for the Deaths of Catholics

Published

on

Last week an adjunct professor at the University of Texas at Austin was fired last week for several inflammatory remarks he made on Twitter.

He called for Catholics to die and wanted the state of Israel to be destroyed.

Brandon Waltens of Texas Scorecard provided an update on the situation:

In a tweet, UT-Austin stated that Wells is no longer employed by the university. ‘Spencer Wells is no longer a faculty or advisory council member at UT,’ they wrote. ‘He previously had a courtesy, unpaid appointment as a part-time adjunct that did not involve teaching. That ended in May and was not renewed. We do not have any association with the views held by Mr. Wells.’

Young America’s Foundation initially reported on this case, The professor in question, Spencer Wells, was challenged by another Twitter user for his comments calling on Iran to bomb Israel. He then went on an unhinged rant.

Per a YAF report:

After being questioned by a Twitter user if he was using sarcasm when encouraging Iran to bomb Israel, Spencer Wells responded: ‘Nope – I despise the Israelis. If you want to see the post-apocalyptic vision of what Apartheid in South Africa would have looked like in 2020, visit Israel. The Palestinians have suffered for far too long – bomb it until the sand turns to glass…’

In addition, Wells tweeted “F*** the Catholic Church” and an article outlining “10 Secrets the Catholic Church Hopes You’ve Forgotten,” with the hashtag #CatholicismMustDie.

Wells’ bio lists him as a geneticist, anthropologist, author, entrepreneur, adjunct professor at the University of Texas at Austin, and the owner of an iconic nightclub in Austin, Texas.

UT is known for being a hub of political correctness thanks to its recent embrace of identity politics.

At the very least, the university was able to hold an unhinged faculty member accountable for his poisonous comments towards Catholics.
