2020 Democrat presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg is dumping big bucks into Texas in an attempt to buy off politicians and advance his anti-gun agenda.
Ammoland reported that the gun control group Everytown for Gun Safety is vowing to spend $8 million in Texas. This is part of the $60 million the anti-gun group plans on spending in order to elect gun-grabbing politicians in the 2020 election cycle.
The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms sees this as a “leveraged buyout” of the Second Amendment. Former New York City Mayor Bloomberg is using his vast wealth to effectively buy the 2020 election.
“Michael Bloomberg is spending a fortune on his Johnny-come-lately presidential campaign,” CCRKBA Alan Gottlieb said. “But the one prize he really seems to want—a chance to turn America into his kingdom—will prove to be beyond even his financial reach. He’s tried to tell us what to eat, he’s tried to tell us how much soda we can drink and he has been unrelenting in his crusade to erase the Second Amendment from the Bill of Rights.”
“But Bloomberg can’t buy American liberty,” he added, “because Americans aren’t willing to sell. He has amassed great wealth, but that doesn’t give him the right to say nobody else has any rights. And we’re certain that the more Bloomberg talks and the more he spends, the more people will realize this man should not be trusted with the future of the United States.”
“The Everytown Action Fund pledge to spend ‘at least’ $60 million to elect gun prohibitionists to public office at all levels should alarm, if not terrify, every American voter,” Gottlieb commented.
“If Mike Bloomberg thinks he sees a pricetag on America,” Gottlieb finished, “he shouldn’t run for election, he should run to the nearest doctor for an eye exam, because he’s seeing something that isn’t there.”
Democrat elites are clearly desperate, so they’ve pushed oligarch Michael Bloomberg to try to enter this race and buy it off.
Bloomberg has already spent $350 million in TV and radio ads to position himself prominently during the 2020 elections.
A Bloomberg presidency would be one of technocratic globalism, which would threaten basic American civil liberties such as the Second Amendment.
Free Speech Organization FIRE Defends Kansas State Student Jaden McNeil From a Politically Correct Lynch Mob, KSU Will Not Expel the Student
Given the tense climate of American political discourse in 2020, there was speculation that he was about to be expelled from the university.
Nevertheless, online activism from the likes of staunch right-winger Michelle Malkin helped create sufficient pushback against the lynch mobs that were descending on McNeil.
Now, McNeil has even more backup with free speech organization The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) coming to his defense.
FIRE sent KSU a resounding warning:
The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education is a non-partisan, non-profit organization dedicated to defending liberty, freedom of speech, due process, academic freedom, legal equality, and freedom of conscience on America’s college campuses.
FIRE appreciates that Kansas State University is one of the few institutions in the country whose policies earn a ‘green light’ rating from FIRE. We write today in response to the University’s statement that it is reviewing its “options” concerning KSU undergraduate Jaden McNeil’s statement on social media.
KSU made a suggestive tweet in response to McNeil’s original tweet about Floyd:
A message from President Richard Myers:
The insensitive comments posted by one K-State student hurts our entire community. These divisive statements do not represent for the values of our university. We condemn racism and bigotry in all its forms.

A message from President Richard Myers: The insensitive comments posted by one K-State student hurts our entire community. These divisive statements do not represent for the values of our university. We condemn racism and bigotry in all its forms.
We are launching an immediate review of the university’s options. Black Lives Matter at Kansas State University and we will continue to fight for social justice.
McNeil tweeted jokingly, “Congratulations to George Floyd on being drug free for an entire month!”
FIRE’s letter served as a reminder to KSU that as a public university it is bound by the United States Constitution and is compelled to protect free speech per the First Amendment. Yes, even when it comes to offensive speech.
The letter added:
While McNeil’s tweets may be deeply offensive to many, they do not fall into a category of speech unprotected by the First Amendment, which strictly limits public universities like KSU from punishing protected expression.
The entire statement can be read on Michelle Malkin’s twitter feed:

The stakes are high in 2020, as free speech hangs in the balance thanks to relentless pressure from the PC Left and Big Tech.
The good news is that KSU announced that it will not expel McNeil over his Tweet. But the fight is far from over.
Anyone who values American freedoms should stand in solidarity with McNeil.
