McCain 2.0 Strikes Again: Dan Crenshaw Supports Gun Confiscation

Congressman Dan Crenshaw wants to bring Minority Report style ‘pre-crime’ policing to the United States.

After the El Paso and Dayton shootings, Crenshaw expressed his horror at these atrocities.

But he took it a step further.

In a tweet he stated that “The solutions aren’t obvious, even if we pretend they are. But we must try. Let’s start with the TAPS Act. Maybe also implement state “red flag” laws, or gun violence restraining orders. Stop them before they can hurt someone. https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/838/text

Crenshaw’s endorsement of The Threat Assessment, Prevention, and Safety (TAPS) Act reveals his establishment colors.

BLP previously reported on the TAPS Act introduced by Congressman Brian Babin (TX-36) in the House of Representatives and Senator Marco Rubio (FL) in the Senate:

It does the following:

Standardizes and provides a behavioral threat assessment and management process across the Federal government.  Provides states the training, resources, and support needed to stand up community-based, multi-disciplinary behavioral threat assessment and management units. Recognizes that behavioral threat assessment and management processes must become part of the culture and fabric of contemporary law enforcement.  Urges that this is a matter of national security – if we act now and work together, we can save lives.

Harmless title notwithstanding, many believe that the TAPS Act would potentially function as a pre-crime bill.

David Leach of The Strident Conservative argues that Marco Rubio’s version of the TAPS Act, S.265, would “encourage law enforcement to give EVERYONE a personal threat assessment (adults and children) and single out those they deem as future threats.” From there, this information could later be used to “stop dangerous individuals before they can commit an act of violence.”

Mark Angelides of Liberty Nation also commented on Babin’s statement on the TAPS Act and the implications it has for civil liberties:

But what result would be measured as a success? If the individual has committed no crime, why should they have their privacy invaded and their life chances hindered with a government record deeming them to be “threat”? If the individual in question has committed a crime, then there are already laws in place to deal with them.

This push for TAPS Act and “red flag” style legislation is part of a new wave of gun control that is making rounds across the nation.

With Lindsey Graham already working to push red flag bills again, it’s only a matter of time before this legislation comes to a vote in Congress.

Gun owners will have to be ready to fight back.

Is Sherlock Holmes About to be Cancelled?

Will Sherlock Holmes be the next victim of the woke purges?

According to a report from Express, certain literary experts believe that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote “crass racist descriptions” in his novels about Sherlock Holmes. Arthur Conan Doyle was the author of the world famous Sherlock Holmes novel.

Doyle had a statue built in Edinburgh built in Edinburgh across the house Doyle was born in.

In one of Doyle’s short stories, The Adventure of the Three Gables, he wrote about an occasion in which Holmes stared at the “hideous mouth” of a “huge negro” and informed the “savage”: “I don’t like the smell of you.”

Similarly, in The Sign of the Four, the second novel which featured Sherlock Holmes in 1890, Doyle describes the indigenous people of the Andaman Islands off the coast of India as “naturally hideous, having large, misshapen heads.”

Dr. Merrick Burrow, a professor of English at the University of Huddersfield said to The Times of Scotland: “Especially in the early Sherlock Holmes stories, there are crass racist descriptions.”

“There is no question that the language used to describe people of various ethnicities is inflammatory, offensive and insensitive by any contemporary standards. The stories are almost all narrated by Dr Watson and there is a racist framework of descriptions of immigrants in negative terms,” Burrow remarked.

Burrow asserted that the author should not be judged by contemporary standards. She emphasized that Doyle’s “crass characterizations were fairly typical of his time [The Victorian Era].

He continued: “There is a massive difference between someone who was a slave trader or waged military campaigns and someone who wrote books.”

Jonathan McCafferty, the president of the Sherlock Holmes Society of London, said there was “lamentable instances of language” in Doyle’s works.

Such concerns over Doyle’s alleged racism come in a time when Black Lives Matter protests have flared up in American and all over the world.

Such uproar has given the radical iconoclasts the opportunity to call for the destruction of Western history.

Doyle’s works are among the many pieces of European history that are fair game for destruction.

What we’re witnessing across the West is what happens when political correctness is allowed to run rampant.
