This is a matter that Conservatives must confront, quickly and with great prejudice.
With tragedy often times comes conspiracy. There are, of course, the 9/11 Truthers and now, in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, a growing subset of individuals are claiming that the entire tragedy was government manufactured — or that it never happened at all. While reports surrounding these notions have recently surfaced, they appear to be gaining steam.
Israel’s Mossad death squads are likely responsible for the tragic massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn. last month, according to a professor emeritus at the University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD).
Hopefully, you’re wondering what sort of sick, brain-twisted psychos are capable of coming up with conspiracy theories like this. But if you’ve paid attention over the last 12 years or so, it’s not hard to successfully guess where the root of the craziness is.
I suspected that we would see something weird coming out of certain camps regarding Sandy Hook when I kept seeing Alex Jones popping up in the media battle over gun control – and dreaded it.
My suspicion and dread were well founded.
The author of the first article referred to 9/11 Truthers as a reminder of how the nuts among us are capable of not only denying tragedy but twisting it and abusing the victims to further the advancement and propagation of their fantastical conspiracy theories. He was right to do so because the same crackpots that believed George Bush did 9/11 (instead of muslims) are the same ones that are cooking up the scenarios and “facts” to prove their new theories that the government is perpetrating a hoax in Sandy Hook.
It’s easy enough to dismiss these freaks as simply mentally deranged and ignore them. But to ignore them is to empower the enemies of the constitution. Having unconfronted and unchecked psychos on “our side” of the gun control debate does not strengthen our position. If conservatives once more allow deranged idiots like Alex Jones and his minions of truthers, to dominate the gun control conversation, we will have served up – on silver platter – the entire narrative and given advantage to the media gun-bigots.
Our protestations of Constitutional Infringement will fall on deaf ears if we allow the herky-jerky truthers to be perceived as speaking for conservatism – and then you really can kiss your guns goodbye.
You will be seeing more of this.

Learn your lesson, voters. Unless you are the walking, talking equivalent of something a dog left in the yard, you are not going to like what Democrats do once in power, so do not vote for them under any circumstances, no matter what pretty lies they tell you. No one can participate in the obscenity into which the Democrat Party has degenerated without being willing to slit Lady Liberty’s throat.
Rushing through a radical gun law law, passing it without reading it, is what Andrew Cuomo wanted, and his legislature gave it to him.
Cuomo signed the unread law full of half-baked ideas, empty rhetoric, and bad policy moments later, turning hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers into criminals.
He did this all for one reason: the right to claim that he was “first” to “do something.”
Andrew Cuomo did “something,” alright. We just don’t know how bad it is in total, not yet.
What we do know is that the law he forced through the legislature in backroom deals did nothing to address the mental illnesses of or defend against the next Adam Lanza, James Holmes, Jared Lougner, Seung-Hui Cho, Eric Harris, or Dylan Klebold.
He didn’t save any lives. He may cost more than a few.

The gun debate isn’t about shooting deer or paper targets, and it certainly isn’t about keeping children safe from maniacs, who are only stopped by guns in the hands of the good guys. It is about the ability to hold the concrete materialization of individual liberty in your hands. It is about whether we are free Americans who can chart our own courses, or that far lower breed that submits to the fate determined by coercive bureaucrats.

“In fact, the piling on by the political left, and their cohorts in the media, to use the massacre of little children to advance a pre-existing political agenda that would not have saved those children, disgusts me, personally. The second amendment to the Constitution is a basic right of free people and cannot be nor will it be abridged by the executive power of this or any other president.”

Did they just assume since some Pennsylvania polls turned out over 100% votes for (THHO)Der Obama that Pennsylvanians consisted solely of spineless Obamabots?
Pennsylvania gun owners threatened to boycott the state’s largest hunting and fishing expo Tuesday after organizers announced that they would ban the display and sale of assault rifles at this year’s show.
By late Tuesday, a news release on the show’s website was replaced with a statement explaining the organizer’s change of heart.
So there ya go, the heart is directly affected by teeth marks on the posterior.

You want an assault weapon? Simply take whatever gun you have and let a Dhimmicrat hold it …. Voila! Assault Weapon!
Alright, I’ll play along. Yes, I own an assault rifle and it is my right to own the assault rifle, the assault pistol, the assault slingshot, the assault knife and my most prized possession – the assault keyboard …..
I love guns. Grew up with ‘em. As a former police officer with 12 years in the U.S. military, I know how to use them, too – use them well. I plan to buy more – a bunch more. In fact, who’s to say I don’t already have a veritable arsenal?
Point is, tain’t Big Brother Barack’s nor any other candy-keistered-liberal-cream-puff’s bloody business whether I do or not.
the left’s totalitarian brand of “gun control” has nothing to do with controlling guns – or bad guys. Rather, it has everything to do with controlling – disarming – the law-abiding masses. It’s not about protecting the innocents. It’s about rendering the innocents defenseless.
Clichés become clichés for a reason, and the old cliché, “If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns,” rings as true today as it did whenever it was that some homespun fellow coined it.

There was some awkward fidgeting in the media. A few suggestions that maybe there should be a little more diversity. And that was followed by the new official talking point that diversity doesn’t matter, it’s all about the impact of the policies. Suddenly the Party of Affirmative Action began making conservative arguments for merit and representation, over racial preferences.
To some this was proof that liberals don’t really believe in anything. And that’s true and it isn’t ……….
…. I have a responsibility to not push—to not force anybody to do anything but to explain what I think and to educate people to the extent of what I believe that would be in their self-interest. And I think there are certain—lots of kinds of dangerous activities—if you want to do it, they may be things that I wouldn’t choose to do, but I would protect your rights to do that.
He actually had the audacity to say that – after five or six years of forcing everybody to everything he wanted. Even more startling is that he walked away from that press conference sans tar and feathers, no bruises, not even hurt feelings.

“We can’t wait for an increasingly dysfunctional Congress to do its job,” Obama announced late last year. By “do its job” he actually meant “agree with the president and pass laws authorizing him to act.” He let loose with a flurry of executive orders — special breaks for debt-addled students and homeowners, and unilateral revision of immigration laws and welfare work requirements — all via royal dispensation.
…. Obama isn’t the first president to abuse the clause to appoint nominees that the Senate wouldn’t confirm. He is, however, the first to invoke the power when the Senate was — according to its own rules — actually in session.
…. Ignoring those considerations, at the time, the Washington Post editorial board called Obama’s gambit “a justifiable power grab.”
The liberal press is apparently uninterested in the rule of law and the separation of powers. Let’s hope those principles have better defenders in Congress and the courts.
