Virginia GOP House Leader Promises to ‘Stand United’ with Democrats a Day Before Gun Rights Rally

The Republican Party is capitulating, as usual.

Virginia House Republicans are siding with Governor Blackface Northam, who has demonized gun rights activists as terrorists and revoked the 2nd Amendment before tomorrow’s 2nd Amendment rally outside of the Capitol.

House Republican Leader Todd Gilbert released a statement this weekend confirming that he would “stand united” with Democrats against supposed hate mongers and white supremacists who the governor and the fake news media have claimed would attend the event.

“So there’s no mistake, this is my message to any group that would subvert this event: you are not welcome here. While we and our Democratic colleagues may have differences, we are all Virginians and we we will stand united in opposition to any threats of violence or civil unrest from any quarter,” Gilbert said in a statement.

Gilbert’s entire statement can be seen here:

Gov. Northam, aided by the deep state and fake news media, has created the narrative that hate groups, anti-government militias, and white supremacists are planning to commit acts of violence at tomorrow’s rally. He has provided no evidence to the public that backs up his assertion.

“No weapons will be allowed on Capitol grounds,” Northam said as he announced his promulgated state of emergency last week. “Everything from sticks and bats to chains and projectiles…. The list also includes firearms. It makes no sense to ban every other weapon but allow firearms when intelligence shows that armed militia groups plan to storm the Capitol.”

Because of the tremendous cowardice of the Republican Party of Virginia, that phony narrative has been strengthened by the political entity that is supposed to stand for the 2nd Amendment.

Gilbert has followed the lead of Rep. Nick Freitas, the libertarian Virginia delegate who pays lip service to the 2nd Amendment but then throws gun owners under the bus when it suits him:

Virginia state delegate Nick Freitas took to social media on Saturday to virtue signal and echo Governor Blackface Northam’s baseless propaganda about “hate groups” attending tomorrow’s gun rights rally at the Capitol.

“It has been rumored that certain hate groups may try to show up and hijack the 2A rally on Monday,” Freitas wrote. “This rally is for those of us who want to defend 2A rights for EVERY law abiding citizen. Those who peddle in hate and racial supremacy will find no support or aid from us.”

“We defend everyone’s right to defend themselves and will not allow these groups to pervert that message under any circumstance. So if you are a member of a hate group…do us all a favor and crawl back to your parents basement. You are a threat to our citizens and our liberties and we don’t want you in our beloved Commonwealth,” he added…

By releasing his statement on social media, Freitas has re-affirmed Northam’s lies and demonization of the rally scheduled to take place tomorrow. This career politician is doing Virginia gun owners no favors with his lack of a backbone.

The Republican Party of Virginia is abandoning gun owners, and doing Gov. Northam’s bidding heading into tomorrow’s contentious rally. That is not good news for 2nd Amendment proponents, as tyrants of various stripes are all uniting to steamroll their core freedoms.

Black Rifle Coffee Does Not Support Second Amendment Hero Kyle Rittenhouse

At this Time, Cons

Published

on

Black Rifle Coffee, a coffee company based in Salt Lake City, is not defending 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.

The company said that it was against a tweet that Blaze Media reporter, Elijah Schaeffer,  posted that featured Rittenhouse wearing a Black Rifle Coffee Company shirt captioned “Kyle Rittenhouse drinks the best coffee in America.” Rittenhouse was released on November 20, 2020 after supporters were able to raise $2 million for his bail. 

In the tweet, Schaeffer posted a discount code for the coffee. Sara Tabin of The Salt Lake Tribune noted that online Twitter users “questioned whether the coffee company had a sponsorship deal with Rittenhouse and accused it of supporting murder and hate.”

This prompted Black Rifle Coffee, the sponsor of the Slightly Offens*ve podcast, to release a statement on November 21 declaring that it is not sponsoring or supporting Rittenhouse.

Initially, there was a misunderstanding about the company withdrawing its sponsorship of Slightly Offens*ve. However, a spokesperson for the company told the Salt Lake Tribune on November 21 that “We are not fluctuating our ad spend.” The coffee spokesperson added “We did have a conversation with Schaffer, and he understands that the post was a mistake.”

She stressed, “We don’t traffic in national tragedy and to us, that’s what this is. We are not legal experts or members of law enforcement. We fully support all law enforcement officials and believe in the integrity of the legal system.”

The spokesperson reiterated that the company will maintain its sponsorship of Blaze Media. She explained: “Our concern is that use of the discount code in the post did not reflect our values. That’s a concern we’ve addressed with the journalist and that he understands.”

Blaze employees “make decisions about how to allocate ad dollars within the Blaze,” she remarked. Although the spokesperson did not go into further detail about the company’s status as a podcast sponsor, it noted that the coffee company and the Blaze are in talks about “how to move forward with the allocation of ad dollars.”

Black Rifle Coffee positions itself as a pro-Second Amendment, conservative company that was founded by veterans. Black Rifle Coffee co-founder Evan Hafer released a statement on November 21 declaring that “We do not support legal advocacy efforts. We do not sponsor nor do we have a relationship with the 17-year-old facing charges in Kenosha, WI.”

At the moment, Rittenhouse is facing two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot back in August. In addition, he’s being charged with one count of being a minor in possession of a firearm. During the riots, Rittenhouse was attacked by Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse was carrying an AR-style rifle as he was walking down the street to protect private property from looters.

It is disappointing to see supposedly pro-Second Amendment businesses fold to the mob. Although the Left is very effective at mass politics and causing certain businesses to get cancelled, some businesses will have to take a stand. Submission to these radicals only encourages them to become bolder in their attacks.
