In an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo on “Cuomo Prime Time”, Beto O’Rourke made sure to pull the race card right off the bat.
He argued that President Donald Trump can’t be allowed to “get off scot-free” for his years of allegedly “racist” actions just because he delivered a speech in which he resoundingly condemned white supremacy.
The former congressman implored journalists to “connect those dots” between Trump’s rhetoric and alleged attacks on minority communities.
O’Rourke told Chris Cuomo that Trump is “the most racist President we’ve had since perhaps Andrew Johnson, in another age and another century, and he is responsible for the hatred and the violence that we’re seeing right now.”
O’Rourke added that he “cannot leave that just to me to say that. It’s got to be you, and those who are helping this country understand what is happening in our name, to connect those dots of these actions that can seem unconnected or disparate or random or just strange.”
He continued his accusations against Trump: “They’re all of a pattern, and they all follow what this President has said from that maiden speech when he ran for the highest office of the land.”
The perpetrator of the Walmart massacre wrote a memo filled with rants expressing racist and environmental totalitarian sentiments.
The former congressman from El Paso claims that this memo’s language is similar to what Trump has used on the campaign trail and throughout his presidency.
“The words that he was using were many of the same words the President had been using,” O’Rourke declared. “We cannot allow him to get off scot-free just because he gave a speech here today.
He concluded by saying that “We cannot let him get off without any complicity or justice or accountability, given what he has made possible here. There has to be — there has to be — justice at the end of the day.”
The El Paso native has fully exploited this shooting, which has put him back in the spotlight after weeks of floundering in the polls during the 2020 Democratic Party primaries.
Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
