The Brother of a Sandy Hook Victim Calls Out Joe Biden: He’s ‘Either a Liar or He’s Losing His Mind’

Joe Biden is a liar.

So says JT Lewis, who lost his 6-year-old brother, Jesse, in the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre.

According to JT, then-President Obama made a point to visit every single family that lost a loved one.

But now Joe Biden’s claiming the same, and JT’s calling hogwash:

“This is a lie. Obama came to Sandy Hook and met with every family. Joe Biden DID NOT. In fact, my family was not allowed on Air Force One because we refused to support Obama/Biden gun control efforts.”

Being that 2020 quickly approaches, these, of course, are the days of big claims. Everyone wants to take credit for anything and everything good.

See for yourself:



It’s one of the perks of the primaries — watching people get silly trying to outdo one another.

But JT’s not much for that happenin’ with Jiveturkey Joe:

“Joe Biden just claimed that he came to Sandy Hook after the shooting and met with every family who lost someone. It was actually Obama who did that, NOT Joe Biden. Biden also thought he was VP when Parkland happened. @JoeBiden is either a liar or he’s losing his mind.”

The grieving brother also laid it out to The Daily Caller, insisting, “Biden has no idea what he’s talking about. He thought he was VP during Parkland and thought he met with every family during Sandy Hook. Not a good quality in a presidential candidate.”

But while JT’s firm, JB’s holding the line, too.

In his defense, he said he “think[s]” he met with everyone:

Still, ya might wanna make sure before you create a campaign video.

The strange clip sounds as if he’s talking about the murderer — Joe decries the evil of Sandy Hook and says, “[T]he simple proposition is, it’s wrong. It’s wrong. And they should have more of a conscience…”

Then it turns:

“[T]hey should have more of a conscience, the manufacturers. They should have more of a conscience, the NRA.”

Joe sounds confused as to who destroyed lives that day. And what.

It wasn’t a manufacturer.

It was a human being intent upon killing the most innocent among us.

And, in my opinion, that tragedy shouldn’t be used for political maneuvering.

But that’s just me.

As for the above clip’s Twittering, Giffords has “hidden” one of the replies.

Here it is (hold your nose, Teen Vogue):

Police Continue to Bash Beto Over His Promise to Send Authorities to the Homes of Gun Owners

Failed Democratic Texas Senate candidate and failing Democratic 2020 candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke made some promises on behalf of America’s law enforcement that America’s law enforcement isn’t happy about, and they’re speaking out about it.

Recently, O’Rourke went on MSNBC and told Joe Scarborough of “Morning Joe” that if he became president and by some dark miracle managed to make AR-15s illegal, he would institute a mandatory buyback. Should you as a gun owner not participate in that buyback, then O’Rourke said he would send law enforcement to pay you a visit.

As I reported, Sheriff’s departments from across the nation began speaking up and letting O’Rourke know that his threat wasn’t only not going to happen due to its unconstitutionality, it’s absolutely foolish in that it could result in the deaths of both civilians and officers. They lambasted O’Rourke for being so flippant about putting lives at risk.

(READ: Sheriffs Send Beto To The Burn Ward Over His Threat To Send Law Enforcement To Gun Owner’s Homes)

Apparently, the bashing from law enforcement is continuing, but now it involves the largest police union in the nation.

According to the Washington Free Beacon’s Stephen Gutowski, the National Fraternal Order of Police not only stated that his threat was unconstitutional but rubbed salt in the wound by stating that O’Rourke is likely to never be elected:

“Mr. O’Rourke may not be aware that state and local police officers (who comprise more than 90% of all police in the U.S.) receive their orders from their local jurisdictions – not from the Federal government,” Jim Pasco, executive director of the FOP, wrote in an email to the Free Beacon. “Further, any such legislation, if it passed, would no doubt be vigorously litigated with a view to its apparent inconsistency with the Second Amendment.”

“In view of the foregoing, and in view of Mr. O’Rourke’s current standing in the polls, we do not view this as an issue we will have to grapple within the foreseeable future,” he added.

It doesn’t stop there. Gutowski also reported that Sheriff AJ Louderback of Jackson County, Texas, warned that officers would mutiny en masse should a politician try to implement a threat like that into action, and flat out stated his refusal to participate in such an action should he be ordered to:

“I think he’s seriously misjudging the law enforcement response to what he wants to do,” Louderback told the Free Beacon. “Many sheriffs would not comply with his plan.”

Louderback sits on the immigration and government affairs committees of the National Sheriffs’ Association, which represents over 3,000 sheriffs across the country. He described O’Rourke’s plan as unworkable and counterproductive.

“This guy’s plan is ridiculous,” he said. “Everyone is looking for solutions to violent crime but this isn’t one of them. I’m not going to harass my citizens for owning guns.”

The National Association of Police Organizations, which represents a massive number of officers, also verbally slapped O’Rourke for his threat:

“It’s ironic that Beto O’Rourke, who was slamming police as ‘the new Jim Crow’ just a year ago, now finds a need for police when he wants to disarm individuals,” Bill Johnson, executive director of the group, told the Free Beacon. “Maybe poor Beto should spend less time live-streaming his visits to the dentist and attend a basics civics class instead. He’d be reminded that the very first law every police officer swears to uphold is the Constitution.”

The number of officers refusing to do comply with Democrat’s “door to door” promise of gun confiscation should tip off the left to what kind of country they’re trying to disarm. When even law enforcement officials at the very top of offices and unions are openly revolting against you before you’re in a position to be revolted against, you’re not going to have a good time getting your authoritarianism into action.

Must-See Tweets Displaying Chile’s Violent Response to Protesters Shows Us Why Gun Control Is a Bad Idea

Westlake Legal Group ff260d6b-4131-4295-9611-d5489b7c6ddd@news.ap_.org_ Must-See Tweets Displaying Chile’s Violent Response to Protesters Shows Us Why Gun Control Is a Bad Idea second amendment police brutality Guns gun rights gun control Front Page Stories firearms democrats Chile America 2A

Gun control advocates often laugh at people who like to say they keep their guns around because it prevents authoritarians in the government from getting out of control.

As they laugh, we see how the police dominate their unarmed citizenry with brutal force and cruel tactics. We’ve watched as it happened in China, Venezuela, North Korea, and now Hong Kong and Chile.

In Chile, what started as a protest about rising metro faires has blossomed into a full-on riot thanks to rising costs of living, with police reacting with overt violence. One Twitter user from Chile going by “pinkitsvne,” has tweeted out images and videos showing just how bad it has gotten.

One thing she noted, in particular, was how the government was manhandling protesters and rioters thanks to Chile being a “disarmed country.”

“THIS IS CHILE RIGHT NOW,” she tweeted. “The government set the military on the streets just because people were demanding rights. Salaries aren’t enough. WE ARE A DISARMED COUNTRY. They fight us with guns and we have bare hands.
Media is censoring this, please RT. MAKE THE WORLD SEE.”

The Twitter user posted other images and videos, including a GIF of police destroying public property and blaming protesters for the act.

One image, in particular, stands out, however. An unarmed older man can be seen holding his hand up to a Chilean officer who is pointing a gun directly at him. Included is a video of police firing guns at unseen protesters.

“This image makes me so so sad honestly. It’s literally representing what’s happening, a gun pointed at us when we just want to be heard,” tweeted pinkitsvne.

It’s possible that these shotguns contain beanbag rounds; they have has not been confirmed as having been shells that are deadly. Regardless, you can see how the police abuse their authority by shooting teargas into the property of protesters and even using batons to beat a child.

Those laughing at American people who want to keep their Second Amendment rights alive and well are the laughable ones. We see a constant stream of examples of what happens when a government doesn’t have the threat of violence looming against them, with Chile just being the latest.

Gun rights advocates are watching and learning. They’re paying attention to historical patterns that show that an unarmed populace is a conquered one. It’s only a matter of time before it overtly shows.

When Democrats tell us we need to give up our guns and America refuses, what we see in Chile is what it’s refusing.

Watch: Amazing Video of Coach Stopping Gunman In School, Hugging Him

Screenshot from this video

Back in May, there was a story about how a football coach at the Parkrose High School in Oregon stopped a troubled young man with a gun at the school.

But now, KOIN 6 News has released video of the event, showing just how dramatic the situation was and how lucky everyone involved was that that coach was there and did what he did to stop the young man.

The student, Angel Granados-Diaz, was 18 and he brought a shotgun into a classroom at the school.

The coach, Keanon Lowe, who doubled as a security guard, had been called to the building to find Granados-Diaz.

He then tells what happened next.

“I walk in there, I get to the classroom, I’m in the classroom for 15, 20 seconds — you know, I ask the teacher, ‘Is the student here?’”

Granados-Diaz was only steps away with the shotgun tucked under his coat.

“The door opens — I’m within arm’s length of the door, about 3 feet away from the door, and there’s a kid with a gun, a shotgun,” Lowe said. “In a fraction of a second, I analyzed everything really fast,” he said. “I saw the look in his face, look in his eyes, looked at the gun, realized it was a real gun and then my instincts just took over.”

Lowe said running away never crossed his mind.

“I lunged for the gun, put two hands on the gun. He had his two hands on the gun and obviously the kids are running out of the classroom and screaming.”

Lowe handed off the gun to another teacher and then held the student in a hug, both to control him and to soothe him. “I felt compassion for him; a lot of times, especially when you’re young, you don’t realize what you’re doing until it’s over,” Lowe explained.

Meanwhile the other students ran and police started to flood into the school looking for the the man with the gun.

Here are the videos showing it as it happened.

The gunman entering the hallway with the shotgun and the coach entering the hallway unaware the gunman is there.

Lowe comes upon the gunman, grabs the gun and then passes it off to another teacher as Lowe hugs the student.

Kids run for their lives, Police looking for the gunman.

It turned out that the gun only had one bullet and they believe the student planned to kill himself.

He got a sentence of 36 months probation for unlawful possession of a firearm in the school and another count of unlawfully having it in public.

Pretty amazing and thank God for Coach Lowe.

Sheriff Sends Beto to the Burn Ward Over His Threat to Send Law Enforcement to Gun Owner’s Homes

While on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Democratic 2020 candidate and wannabe tyrant Robert “Beto” O’Rourke made it clear that in an America where he’s president, he will send law enforcement to the homes of people who choose not to participate in the mandatory buyback program and take their gun by force.

O’Rourke told “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough that in the instance of a gun owner keeping his AR-15 to himself, then he can count on a visit by someone with a badge and a gun.

“In that case, I think there would be a visit by law enforcement to recover that firearm and to make sure that it is purchased — bought back — so that it cannot be potentially used against somebody else,” said O’Rourke.

(READ: Beto Clowns Himself Explaining How He’ll Punish “Buyback” Reluctant Gun Owners With “Consequences”)

It would appear that law enforcement has some things to say about that, and O’Rourke may not like what they have to say.

In fact, according to Townhall, San Juan County Sheriff Shane Ferrari said if O’Rourke thinks law enforcement is going to cooperate with “President O’Rourke” to strip the people of their legally owned firearms, he’s “delusional.”

“Mr. O’Rourke is delusional in regards to his gun control ideas,” Ferrari told Townhall.

“The biggest fear of any free society is the government at your door wanting to take away your rights by force. I do not see the men and women of law enforcement sworn to uphold the U.S. Constitution doing this,” Ferrari continued.”In an act of desperation, Mr. O’Rourke is shamefully using tragedies our country has experienced and fear for his political gain. The very foundation of law enforcement is public trust. Frankly, no one should trust a man who talks out of both sides of his mouth.”

Eddy County Sheriff Mark Cage also made it clear that O’Rourke is out of bounds.

“I’m not sure whether his statements are naive or just plain ignorant and arrogant. Maybe it’s all three,” said Cage. “The thought of anyone utilizing my sheriff’s office or any other law enforcement agency in this country as their personal Gestapo to go door to door violating citizen’s rights is disgusting, unrealistic and downright un-American.”

Cage noted to Townhall that “bloodshed would be inevitable,” and added that “some of my constituents are already adopting the mantra of ‘Come take mine Beto!’…His rhetoric has gotten old and I look forward to the day when he shuts up.”

Weld County Sheriff Steve Reams questioned the constitutionality of O’Rourke’s threat and noted that the entire situation puts both his officers and the citizen in harm’s way.

“I think that you have to be concerned for the safety of the citizen [too] because, at that point, they don’t know if law enforcement is coming to protect them or disarm them and that creates a very tense situation,” Reams told Townhall.

Reams is more or less correct. More than just a few Americans will be hiding their rifles from the government if ever there should be a law passed that bans them. The proof that Americans are okay with this lies in the fact that the purchase of firearms, including AR-15’s, skyrockets whenever the threat of a ban even so much as peaks its head out.

In order to confiscate so many guns, O’Rourke would have to send law enforcement from home to home to search it. Seeing as how you need a warrant for that, just going to search that many homes would be a very long and arduous task, not to mention a dangerous one for everyone involved.

If O’Rourke wants to truly make sure all the guns are confiscated, he’d have to eliminate the Fourth Amendment, which will likely never happen. So calling him “delusional” is more than just a jab, it’s likely an accurate descriptor.

Not to mention that while O’Rourke would sit safely in the White House, law enforcement officers and civilians would be putting each other’s lives at risk in order to defend freedoms. So not only is he delusional, he’s foolish in thinking that this will stop the violence. It will only create more.

Ideological Pandemonium Breaks Out as Ben ‘Nazi’ Shapiro Prepares to Speak at Stanford, and I Have Questions

Controversial conservative commentator Ben Shapiro, editor-in-chief of the Daily Wire and former editor-at-large of Breitbart News, addresses the student group Young Americans for Freedom at the University of Utah’s Social and Behavioral Sciences Lecture Hall, Wednesday, Sept. 27, 2017. Shapiro uses his web-based talk show and online columns to support President Donald Trump’s policies and criticize the “self-righteous media.” (Leah Hogsten/The Salt Lake Tribune via AP, Pool)

 

 

If you’ve watched much of Ben Shapiro’s podcasts, you’re sure to have walked away with some characterizations — “fast talker” being among the possibilities.

One not likely to make your Top 10: Nazi.

Yet, in a world with more information at our fingertips than ever before, there are young people protesting his appearances with signs and language that make obvious they’ve not thought to find out who or what he actually is — they just heard some Satan guy was comin’, and they were down for some outrage.

If I may…

Unsolicited advice to protestors, in general: Only protest things you know about.

Better.

They’ve got plenty of time to put that into practice ahead of Ben’s speech at Stanford University — he’ll be talking fast in a big room on November 7th.

Some people are already decrying the event, including cartoonist Eli Valley, who believes Jewish Ben is Jewish hater (?) Ben (?).

Let’s look, for a moment, at some defining characteristics of Nazis:

  • Anti-Jew
  • Opposed to an armed citizenry
  • Socialist
  • Fond of banning things which don’t adhere to a particular viewpoint

Moving on, here’s Eli’s new ‘toon:

So college Republicans (AKA Hitler Youth) = hate group.

And hate group = opposing Jewish people.

But Eli Valley ≠ opposing Jewish person Ben being able to show up and speak somewhere.

It’s hard to imagine the Hitler Youth inviting a man with a yarmulke to school them on how to be smart.

It seems to me we’re at a place in society where a whole lot of things are said just because they seem like they’d sound good to say.

Don’t like someone? Call ’em a Nazi — those guys are supposed to be jerks. Think someone’s got wrong ideas? Label ’em a fascist ’cause you heard that’s bad. Then black their eye and ignite their car.

Hate who won the election? Say they’re ending the system of democracy forever and ever amen (here, here, and lots of other places, too). Impeach!

But in Eli’s defense, he did take time to explain why the YAF should be wearing Michael Jordan mustaches:

You’re right, Arsenio.

Sorry — here we go:

And they’re not just Nazis; they’re also terrorists:

“They should’ve been thrown off campus” — I’m not in any way suggesting Eli’s of the Third Reich persuasion, but isn’t that kind of a Nazi thing to say?



Another guy speaking out against Ben being allowed to talk on campus is Dr. Eugene Gu, who believes the prodigious violinist (here playing “Schindler’s List”) should be straitjacketed:

If you aren’t familiar with the reference, here’s Beto’s expressed plan to pull tax exemption from any institution which doesn’t endorse gay marriage, followed by Ben’s response:

Eugene’s absolutely anti-Ben-speaking because Shapiro has “zero…critical thinking skills”:

This was the doctor in July:

This is where I end the article abruptly like a bad SNL sketch, because I believe there’s nothing left to say. And I think it’s your turn — I look forward to hearing your thoughts on all this. Was Ben’s gun message wrong? Can you make sense of Eli’s Nazi deduction? Are you familiar with the propagandistic weekly German tabloid-format newspaper, Der Stürmer, or to what incident the cartoonish refers? Are you a man who’s had an abortion? Was Michael Jordan insane? Let us all know, in the Comments section.

Beto: Yes, in case it isn’t perfectly clear, I’ll be sending cops to your door to take your guns

Westlake Legal Group b-4 Beto: Yes, in case it isn’t perfectly clear, I’ll be sending cops to your door to take your guns The Blog police Guns confiscation buttigieg Beto O'Rourke

In case there was any doubt about the “consequences” for noncompliance that he had in mind last night at the debate, this clip should resolve them.

Gotta give the guy credit: Somehow he found a gun-control position so radical that other Democrats were forced to tell him “dude, no” on national television.

Did he really not foresee when he endorsed a mandatory gun buyback that he would be asked endlessly about implementation? He looks constipated here admitting that, yes, of course police intervention might be required in some cases. It’s called a “mandatory” buyback for a reason. What’s the alternative, “Turn in your guns if you feel like it?” A law is only as good as its enforcement.

I can’t tell if this is the same position he held last month or a new one. In September, when he first went all-in on gun confiscation, he assured skeptics that police wouldn’t go door to door confiscating guns. Instead, it seemed, assault weapons would be treated like other forms of contraband, e.g., drugs. The cops won’t randomly show up to your door asking about it, but if they happen to find contraband in your possession while they’re there on other business, you’re in trouble. Listening to O’Rourke now, it sounds like he does imagine the police being sent out in some cases, at least, for the express purpose of confiscating weapons.

Which isn’t really a surprise. Beto’s views on gun rights have been evolving at light speed since he was a Senate candidate in Texas.

It’s interesting to watch the skepticism he’s getting even from Democratic-friendly media over his gun proposal. It’s not just Scarborough. Check out the pushback he got from Alisyn Camerota of CNN this morning:

There’s no upside, only downside, for liberals at this point in O’Rourke’s quixotic attempt to gain traction in the primary by venting the progressive id. Grab the guns, tax the churches, tear down the border wall — the media no doubt sees value in these ideas, but they also recognize how poisonous they might be in a general election. It’d be one thing if O’Rourke had caught fire among Democratic voters and now needed media protection from Republican attacks as the presumptive nominee, but not only is he going nowhere electorally, he’s handing the GOP ammo against Elizabeth Warren or whoever else happens to end up facing Trump. He’s so far out in left field that opportunists like Pete Buttigieg are now using O’Rourke’s radicalism as a foil to reposition themselves as moderate pragmatists for the benefit of Joe Biden’s voters:

What is this guy’s long-term game plan? His presidential bid has failed and he’s so tainted by outlandish radicalism like “seize the guns” that the nominee won’t even want him as a prominent surrogate next year. Having him around on the trail will make it too easy for Trump to tar him/her by association. If he goes back to Texas, he’s finished for the foreseeable future as being too left-wing for what’s still a semi-solidly red state. Is he trying to establish himself as the most true-blue progressive culture warrior in the field ahead of a 2024 presidential run, believing that the party will have caught up to him by then? Or is this exactly what it looks like — a desperate candidate who made a high-risk bet that radicalism would generate momentum for him, and who’s now left with nowhere to go upon realizing that it hasn’t?

About the only thing I looked forward to seeing Tuesday night at the fourth Democratic debate was the scrap between Beto O’Rourke and South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

Beto and Mayor Pete have been needling each other for weeks on the issue of gun control, and specifically O’Rourke’s mandatory gun confiscation plan. Mayor Pete has referred to Beto’s plan as an unattainable “shiny object.” Because of that, O’Rourke has countered that the Mayor, who served in Afghanistan, was “afraid of doing the right thing right now” because he was supposedly more interested in focus groups, consultants, and polls than saving lives.

CNN’s Anderson Cooper, one of last night’s debate moderators, teed up the tense exchange between the two by first asking Beto about how he planned on implementing his plan. After Beto gave a non-committal answer as to what he would do, Cooper then turned to Mayor Pete for his thoughts:

COOPER: Thank you. Mayor Buttigieg, just yesterday, you referred to mandatory buybacks as confiscation and said that Congressman O’Rourke has been picking a fight to try to stay relevant. Your response on guns?

BUTTIGIEG: Look, Congressman, you just made it clear that you don’t know how this is actually going to take weapons off the streets. If you can develop the plan further, I think we can have a debate about it. But we can’t wait. People are dying in the streets right now.

Beto responded by emphatically stating that we can’t wait on gun confiscation, the time is now, and we need to do the right thing, etc. etc. He also added the below comments, which was another swipe at Buttigieg’s courage regarding taking what Democrats would characterize as bold action on gun control:

O’ROURKE: No, let’s decide what we are going to believe in, what we’re going to achieve. And then let’s bring this country together in order to do that. Listening to my fellow Americans, to those moms who demand action, to those students who march for our lives, who, in fact, came up with this extraordinary bold peace plan… that calls for mandatory buybacks, let’s follow their inspiration and lead and not be limited by the polls and the consultants and the focus groups. Let’s do what’s right…”

Buttigieg at long last let him have it:

BUTTIGIEG: The problem isn’t the polls. The problems is the policy. And I don’t need lessons from you on courage, political or personal. Everyone on this stage is determined to get something done. Everyone on this stage recognizes, or at least I thought we did, that the problem is not other Democrats who don’t agree with your particular idea of how to handle this.

Watch:

I’ve said before that I’d be content with them both destroying each other at future campaign stops and debates because they are both pompous, sanctimonious hypocrites on a number of fronts, but Beto really did have that coming to him.

Booker to Buttigieg: Calling a Buyback Program ‘Confiscation’ is Doing the NRA’s Work for Them. So is Saying That

The NRA defends gun rights, and guns prevent crime. Guns are also employed in crime, but how else might one stop that crime, if not with guns?

Yet, the National Rifle Association’s gone from a somewhat neutrally-perceived organization to the Essence of Evil. When and how did this become an accepted idea?

Word on the woke street seems to be the 2nd Amendment advocacy group is a devilchild, and I’d be willing to bet many believe that but don’t know why.

As I covered previously, 2020 hopeful Pete Puttigieg recently decried Beto O’rourke’s promise to steal America’s most-popular hunting rifles from the homes of its citizens (here).

Cory Booker didn’t like that, so he came up with a neat idea: Just say it isn’t what it is.

Presto-change-O.

Good as new-O.

Mayor Pete referred to the Beto’s plan as “confiscation,” and aspiring physical assaulter Cory used Twitter to revolt against the meaning of words:

“Calling buyback programs “confiscation” is doing the NRA’s work for them, @PeteButtigieg—and they don’t need our help.”

I hate to do this, but I will anyway — I’ll say what you already know:

1. It isn’t a “buyback” program because, given that we are not a socialist country, the government doesn’t own all products and means of production. You cannot “buy back” that which you did not sell.

2. “Buy” denotes a mutual transaction; confiscation does not. I’d love to “buy” the Knight Rider car for $20. Sadly, I will — at some point in my life — be forced to confiscate it. The joyride will be bliss, until KITT ignores me and I’m taken to jail in my black leather jacket.

And I could possibly find myself sitting next to a certain punk rocker who apparently’s got an itch to steal guns that he’s psyched to scratch.

A guy who didn’t much appreciate Pete’s putdown.

Here’s what Beto had to say earlier this month:

“I think [Pete] represents a kind of politics that is focused on poll-testing, and focus group-driving, and triangulating, and listening to consultants before you arrive at a position. I think our politics has to be about doing the right thing and saying the right thing.”

As reported by The Daily Wire, this isn’t Cory’s first time to defend forcibly taking firearms. Following September’s Democratic debate, he laid it out for reporters:

“You have to set up a system that is mandatory, you have to set up a system to pull them off, but this idea, this imagery that the fear-mongers and demagogues try to say of somehow armed police officers showing up and confiscating weapons — that’s the fear-mongering. And people trying to obscure and make people forget what we have done before as a nation with machine guns, what other nations have done with assault rifles.”

Of course, there are no “assault rifles” in this case, but hunting rifles that look particularly scary, in the same way that a black widow looks more menacing that a grandaddy long legs.

But no matter what you call it, they’re spinning a web of confiscation.

“Look, I hate when Democrats use the language that Republicans try to use to scare people away, as opposed to sort of the pragmatism and practicality of this.”

Said the spider to the fly.

On Sunday, I covered Pete Buttigieg’s bless-his-heart-style swipe at Beto O’rourke over the punk rocker privileged millionaire who’s not at all in favor of privileged millionaires’s announcement that he’d “make…a priority” of taking away tax exemption from any church that doesn’t support gay marriage (here).

There was also a not-so-favorable mention of Beto’s fundraising techniques and aspirations toward hunting rifle thievery.

A tweeting Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez heard tell of such and, Monday afternoon, went to bat for Beto:

“Small-dollar grassroots campaigns, aka what Buttigieg insults here as ‘pocket change,’ out-fundraises him by millions. Our nation’s leaders should be working to end the era of big money politics, not protect it.”

How might a leader “work to end the era of big money politics”? Get small money? If they get small money, they’ll never be elected in order to do anything, much less end big money politics.

In politics, it’s easy to say things. Harder is to make sense, and even more difficult yet is to speak words with the distinction of having value.

Anyway, put on your mask and fins; we’re diving deeper into her tweet:

“& Beto’s gun policy isn’t ‘picking a fight,’ it’s taking a stand.”

It should be noted that the two aren’t mutually exclusive.

We have a man in the running for the Democratic nomination who’s literally promised to steal your hunting rifles. That’s an incredible line to have crossed, but he jumped right over it with a “Yeehaw!”:

I find it strange Beto didn’t realize he was saying to millions of Americans, “Whatever you do, make sure I’m never put in charge of anything.”

But he’s got his own style.

And AOC, apparently, is a fan.

Pete prefers something more tempered. As reported by The Daily Wire, in September, he touted small doable steps over impossible giant leaps:

“Look, right now, we have an amazing moment right here on our hands. We have agreement among the American people for not just universal background checks but we have a majority in favor of red flag laws, high capacity magazines, banning the new sale of assault weapons. This is a golden moment to finally do something because we’ve been arguing about this for as long as I’ve been alive.”

And he ain’t into Beto’s burglary:

“This is a policy disagreement, and it is about governing. I get it, I mean he needs to pick a fight in order to stay relevant. But this is about a difference of opinion on policy and my focus right now is getting something done.”

America is beset by violent crime; some of that is accomplished via guns, just as some is prevented by guns; violent crime with guns almost exclusively involves handguns; therefore, Beto will steal all people’s hunting rifles.

His own style indeed: the style of being a goofball.

And of this:


He could use a new stylist.
