Andy Parker is the father of Alison Parker, the Virginia newscaster. Ms. Parker and her cameraman Andy Ward were gunned down last week in a brutal shooting. Immediately after receiving the tragic news, Mr. Parker appeared on the mainstream media to tell the world that he wants gun violence to “remain in the news.” Mr. Parker vowed to fight for more gun control. Taking into consideration the trauma Mr. Parker has just endured, it needs to be made clear that his stated goals are, in effect, to make it more difficult for myself to protect my daughter from a crazed lunatic murderer, whose goal was vengeance against white people . . .
Mr. Parker is in the perfect frame of mind for the mainstream media, Barack Obama, Inc. and liberals in general to exploit. The anti-gun crowd has another high-profile story to try and convince you it was the gun that walked up to Alison Parker, Andy Ward and took away their young lives’ and promising future.
They got their agenda out there quick as always and had their talking points lined up perfectly.
The sociopath responsible for all this is Vester Flanagan, a disgruntled former colleague of the victims – who also provided the gun grabbers with chilling footage of the murders on the Internet for the world to see and the Maoist wannabes in government to exploit. A homosexual and former gay-prostitute, Flanagan, who also went by the name ‘Bryce Williams,’ complained about not “getting enough sex” and expressed anger to friends about race relations and being fired.
A seriously confused and hate-filled, bigoted man planned these murders in advanced and videotaped the entire act for all of us to be repulsed by. All the signs were there on social media, testimony from his friends and co-workers. On a side note: Can a black homosexual commit a hate-crime? I don’t know, but he can sure get the attention of folks who want to restrict and take away your Constitutional Rights.
CNN got to the grieving father who was passionate in his support for stricter gun control legislation; posing the question; “How many Alisons will it take?” To the delight of anti-Second Amendment leftists everywhere, he continued; “I’m not going to rest until I see something happen. We’ve got to have our legislators and congressmen step up to the plate and stop being cowards about this.”
A personal note: Mr. Parker, no one can possibly understand how you feel right now – and we know you’ll think of your slain daughter every day of the remainder of your life. If you said your life was permanently ruined by this tragedy, I’d believe you. Because if it happened to my daughter, everything I know, all I believe in – and any amount of joy I might glean from this world would be gone. Forever.
That’s why I resent people wanting to take away my ability to prevent it from happening to my girls or anyone in my family. That’s why I own a gun and support the NRA and fight to the bone these fascists who want to take my Rights from all of us. You want to go after the real problem? Go after the decay of morals and values, not guns. The weapon has nothing to do with it, Mr. Parker. Nothing, nada, zilch.
But Andy Parker didn’t quite live up to the left-wing dream when he felt compelled to clarify: “I’m for the Second Amendment… But there has to be a way to force politicians who are cowards in the pockets of the N.R.A. to make sensible laws to make sure crazy people can’t get guns.” In fact, Parker surprised the salivating libs by adding in the middle of the gun-grabbing rhetoric that he’s “probably going to have to get a gun…”
But alas, he fell back on words that sounded like it came right off the MSNBC teleprompter: The reason he wants a gun is for self-defense from those of us who oppose gun-control: “I don’t want to take any chances..” Wow well, at least he admits that if he wants a gun for self-protection – he should be able to get one, adding; “I’m telling you, they messed with the wrong family…”
Back to the killer: Before his murder rampage, Vester Lee Flanagan II sent ABC News a fax explaining his motivations and said he bought a gun in reaction to the attack where a white man killed nine black people at a Charleston, South Carolina, church in June. There are other reports that Flanagan’s motivation was to start a race war, but the bigot in Charleston probably wanted something like that as well and it didn’t work.
But here’s the really scary part to me: Andy Parker agreed that this “is a mental health issue.” But went on to tow the Marxist line – I’m not saying wittingly, just that he heard this somewhere and has been hearing it a lot lately: “There’s a linkage there between guns and mental health. And there’s got to be some kind of protocol established so that we keep people from getting guns.”
Guess who’s in charge of the health care system now, Mr. Parker? You said you wanted because you felt you needed a gun to protect yourself. Our reasoning is quite different, but trust me – the gun grabbers now have you and I in the same category. And right in their sites.
A grieving father’s feelings aside, which I know is hard to do – it is our right, indeed, our responsibility to protect our loved ones and I’ll be damned if I let anyone or any incident get in the way! There are bad, crazy people in the world and I will always be the one responsible for keeping them from my family, my property and my life. What are you going to do?
