The Democrat 2020 Message is Clear, Socialism Or Bust

Published

on

The Revolution is coming.

The Left’s favorite “democratic socialist” recently published an op-ed for The Guardian calling for his own socialist revolution.

Since Trump’s choice words for socialism in his State of The Union address, the Left has doubled down in their push to turn the U.S. into an economic basket case.

In his op-ed, Bernie Sanders labeled Trump as “the most dangerous president in modern history”, completely ignoring the 100 years of non-stop government growth that have occurred since the advent of the Progressive Era.

Sander’s desire to create “a government based on the principles of economic, social, racial, and environmental justice”, sounds pretty but the means pursued to achieve this pipe dream are filled with destruction and despair.

Just ask countries like Venezuela what happens when you destroy property rights and rational economic thinking in the name of “justice”.

It’s true there’s a growing divide between Middle America and the coastal states. However, this is due to the Progressive style politics that the DC Swamp has pursued in the last century. For that reason, Americans voted for Donald Trump as a means of rejecting this corrupt status quo.

Trump has responded in kind by enacting an executive order to eliminate regulations at a 2:1 ratio, freeing the economy from the shackles of government bureaucracy. This is how you make people prosperous.

Sadly, demagogues like Bernie Sanders don’t get this. Ironically, Sanders thinks Trump is moving the U.S. “in an authoritarian direction”, when his top-down policies would actually move the country in such a direction.

Sanders also talks about taking “on powerful special interests that dominate our economic and political life – Wall Street, the health insurance companies, the drug companies, the fossil fuel industry, the military-industrial-complex, the private-prison industry and multinational corporations”.

But how is he going to carry that out?

Most of these interest groups are powerful because of their exploitation of state power through rent-seeking and other extractions of state privileges.

Sanders’s vision has nothing to do with freedom. The Vermont Senator channeled the gun violence epidemic language again calling for the U.S. to “expand background checks, end the gun show loophole and ban the sale and distribution of assault weapons”. Never mind that expansive gun control and tyranny have historically gone hand-in-hand.

Last but not least, Sanders called for ending “Trump’s support for authoritarian leaders”. For someone who praised the Soviet Union, one of the most repressive regimes in human history, this is an absurd criticism to make.

All in all, Sanders 2020 is no different from Sanders 2016 — a retread of socialist tropes.

Unfortunately, many deluded young souls will gobble up Sanders’s socialist Siren Song.

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.
