Leftist Candidate for Congress Wants Assault Weapons Ban, But Tells Supporter She ‘Cannot Say That’ in Public

Published

on

A Democrat candidate for U.S. Congress from New York said privately at a meeting with teenage supporters that she would support an “assault rifle” ban, but that she will not make that belief public for fear of losing her election.

“When I was at this thing today, it was the first table I was at, a woman said, ‘How do you feel about assault rifles?’ And I said they should be banned,” Tedra Cobb of New York’s 21st Congressional District said. “And I said, you know, people were getting up to go, to go get their lunch because it was a buffet, and I just said to her, I want you to know Cindy, I cannot say that.”

The comments were caught on a secretly recorded video.

Cobb is running against Republican incumbent Elise Stefanik, and when pressed by the woman with whom she was speaking in the recording, said that she could not make her position public for fear of losing her election.

“And she said, ‘Well, I want you to [make your position public]’ and I said, ‘I won’t win,'” Cobb said. “I said Moms Demand [Action] says, and Tricia Pleau said, ‘Do not say that you want an assault rifle ban because you will not win.'”

Tricia Pleau is active in the New York Chapter of gun control group Mom’s Demand Action. Pleau unwittingly confirmed what Republicans already know. Every non-profit that says it wants “common sense gun control” secretly wants to ban certain types of weapons, if not all of them. They simply cannot say it aloud because public opinion will not allow it.

“Tedra Cobb knows that she’s wildly out of touch with the district, so she’s desperately trying to hide her liberal agenda from voters,” Chris Martin, regional press secretary for the National Republican Congressional Committee tolf Free Beacon. “First, she was forced to admit that she raised taxes over 20 times, and now she’s being exposed for lying to voters about her support for an assault weapons ban and taking guns away from law-abiding citizens.”

TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District

It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”

Published

on

Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.

The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at PelosiForPrison.co, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.

Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”

“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”

This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
