Leftists Practically Foam At The Mouth Because A Conservative Dares To Speak At An Ohio College

Published

Around 200 protestors marched outside of Galbreath Chapel at Ohio University to protest right to work laws and a National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation speaker who gave a speech at campus on Monday, September 16, 2019.

The protest came in response to Ohio University scheduling William Messenger, staff attorney at the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation, as a campus speaker.

Based on the protest’s event on Facebook,having someone like Messenger speak gives a platform for a cause that “would surely be filled with lies and deception.”

Messenger is an OU alumnus and he started his lecture at 7:30 p.m., but protestors began marching around 6:30 p.m from the college gateway to the chapel that day. They held up signs against right to work and chanted “get up, get down, Athens is a union town” while demonstrating around the chapel.

The right to work movement’s mission is to reassert the principle of freedom of association by making union membership voluntary and paying dues no longer a condition of employment.

Many of the protestors  at the event believed that right to work laws lower wages.

Gary Crihfield, a worker who participated in the protest, claimed that he isn’t a union member. He attended the protest because he is worried that wages would be lowered if a Right to Work law was passed.

“My wages reflect the union wages,” Crihfield stated. “Everyone who works at OU would be affected by it.”

However, evidence shows that in the 27 right to work states in America, affordable cost of living, higher levels of disposable income, and higher percentages in employment growth are the norm in states with right to work laws.

So, this narrative about lower wages may be misleading when considering how unions not only price out other workers from entering the workforce, but also waste taxpayer dollars and make other goods and services more expensive.

For those who want higher levels of worker productivity and standard of living, labor freedom is a must.

Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation

Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”

Published

on

Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.

Under The Background Check Expansion Act,  gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm. 

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House

“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.

According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.

Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms. 

Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.

Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
