Just remember…this is an election year. Which means it’s critically important to distract attention from the fact that the United States just absorbed a hit by an ISIS-inspired terrorist, costing 49 lives. At least this time they’re not claiming it’s due to a YouTube video.
The November election is the reason why an attack by a militant Islamist Hillary supporter has been alchemized by Democrats and their compliant media megaphones into an indictment of the GOP, the homophobia Republicans have allegedly fueled, and the supposed violence of America’s law abiding firearms owners and gun culture.
So now we’re treated to this little display:
Georgia Rep. John Lewis, a congressman known for historic contribution to the civil rights movement, is leading a sit-in on the House floor Wednesday to push Republicans to address gun violence.
“Sometimes you have to do something out of the ordinary. Sometimes you have to make a way out of no way. We have been too quiet for too long,” the Democratic civil rights leader said, as nearly 30 of his colleagues came to join him on the floor. “There comes a time when you have to say something, when you have to make a little noise, when you have to move your feet. This is the time. Now is the time to get in the way. The time to act is now. We will be silent no more.”
The group the chanted from the floor: “I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired!” and “No bill, no break!” while the House remained in recess as of 1 p.m. ET.
CNN compliantly equates the current cynical, naked political kabuki with the fight for civil rights Lewis and others waged 50 years ago. It’s too bad that since then, the Congressman and his partners in slime have decided to pick and choose the civil rights for which they’re now willing to fight; conspicuously ignoring that the RKBA is every bit as integral to freedom as the right to free speech, assembly, voting and due process. But you probably knew that.
