After Oklahoma City Mayor David Holt made an announcement on Twitter that he signed a referendum petition to repeal the Constitutional Carry law passed by the Legislature earlier this year, Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum has remained silent on the issue.
The Tulsa World reports that they did not receive a response from Bynum after they reached out to him on Thursday, August 22, 2019.
Bynum posted a message on his Facebook page later in the afternoon stating that “some things don’t fit in sound bites.”
The Tulsa mayor claims that he ran for mayor promising to bring the city together to confront its biggest challenges.
Bynum wrote, “So if you are in a job like mine, you focus on the things you can really make a difference on — and you bring together people who otherwise disagree on the other stuff to fix those things within your purview.” He added, “You sacrifice your right to express your opinion on every issue in service to the job you’ve been given.”
The Tulsa mayor is well aware that some of his friends get frustrated by how he doesn’t comment on national politics, add his name group letters to the U.S. Senate or “jump into the fray on state initiative petitions.”
“As a citizen, you should feel free to do all of these things,” Bynum declared. “As a citizen, I have opinions on all of them too. But as mayor, I have a responsibility to pull our city together so we can move it forward.”
The previous week, Bynum said that he did not sign a U.S. Conference of Mayors letter to the U.S. Senate calling for immediate legislative action on gun control because he does not sign group letters..
In a tweet on Wednesday, August 21, 2019 , Holt did not express his position on Constitutional Carry but threw his support behind the referendum petition to repeal it.
The Oklahoma Supreme court recently weighed in on the Oklahoma Constitutional Carry repeal petition. It declared that the petition organizers such as Democratic State Representative Jason Lowe must now count the number of petitions that they submitted to the Oklahoma Secretary of State.
For this petition to be put on the ballot, they need slightly under 60,000 petition signatures.
A repeal of Constitutional Carry would set Oklahoma back in terms of its overall gun policies. It is already ranked among the most pro-gun states according to Guns & Ammo magazine, which puts it in 6th place for best states for gun owners.
Hack Economist Paul Krugman Celebrates the Death of Elderly White People
On June 30, 2020, economist Paul Krugman expressed his desire for the death of White Americans.
He tweeted, “Reality is coming for white supremacists driving golf carts” in reference to an article from Bloomberg News that highlighted how the Wuhan virus pandemic is particularly deadly and disproportionately impacting older segments of the American population.
According to Bloomberg, “record numbers of Floridians 75 and older are testing positive for Covid-19,” according to a June 29 report.
The report added:
Florida hasn’t seen a departure from its relatively low rate of Covid-19 deaths, but it can take weeks from onset of symptoms to death, and the surge in infections is recent.
The new positivity rate — which measures the proportion of people testing positive for the first time compared to the day’s overall testing — started climbing significantly about two weeks ago.
Common sense measures such as quarantining and isolating the elderly population make sense in these circumstances. But total lockdowns are an overreach.
To the point of Krugman race-baiting, this is not a surprise given his status as a mainstream economist.
Political correctness is his M.O., from pushing central banking to perpetuating destructive identity politics.
The Right will need to assert itself against this mob and keep them from gaining power.
More importantly, they must implement policies such as defunding public education at all levels to prevent these people from further consolidating power.
