As of right now, I’m seeing a whole lot of people on the left outraged over what is happening in our cities. Not the rioting, the looting, the arson, or other forms vandalism. Oh no, they’re upset that federal officers are rolling up and arresting people off the streets rather than trusting corrupt, incompetent, and/or dispirited local police departments to take care of it.
It’s bad enough that Democrat mayors of a handful of large cities seeing massive civil unrest are calling on President Trump to withdraw federal officers.
However, many on the left are now asking where the gun owners are. After all, they argue, we’ve said we want guns to combat oppression, so where are we?
Well, we’re not coming to save you.
I can’t speak for everyone, but when someone calls me racist, misogynist, bigoted, worthless, or any of the thousands of other insults I’ve gotten personally, I don’t feel obliged to risk my life to protect them from a government that was goaded into acting by your own lawless behavior. I’m sorry, but while I’ll defend people I disagree with, I’m not going to risk me or my family over your own poor decisions.
No, you don’t get to vilify millions of Americans, insulting everything from their intelligence to genital size, and then expect us to save you from the aftermath of your own decisions. That’s not how it works. That’s not our line in the sand.
Damned sure ain’t. Personally, I’m WAY more likely to shoot THEM, myself.
“However, many on the left are now asking where the gun owners are. After all, they argue, we’ve said we want guns to combat oppression, so where are we?”
What idiot prog is asking where we are to help them? And what on earth would make an idiot prog think I’m in any mood to not shoot them, problem solved?
Had an entire conversation about this concept with a friend – I asked him for one instance where due process hadn’t been followed.
Just like most people, I think the militarization of police is a bad thing, but what if the protesters are militarized?
Just like all of the leftards’ claims about Trump planning on staying in office for the rest of his life, Trump knowing Kavanaugh was a rapist before nominating him, Republicans committing most of the vote fraud in the US, capitalists putting only unhealthy junk food in convenience stores in minority neighborhoods because of racism, right-wingers shutting down leftist speech, and, really, anything else a leftard says, it’s based on leftards’ delusions, leftards’ desire to play an important role in important events, or leftards’ projections of what they would do if they could.
