Why a Red Flag Law is dangerous: democrat language and rhetoric

On Monday gun rights activists gathered in Richmond, Virginia to make their case against the gun-control demorats in that state.

The rally was peaceful and not one fight broke out – very much the exact opposite of Antifa gatherings. Heck, attendees at the rally even cleaned up after themselves!

But that hasn’t stopped the media and demorat gun grabbers from portraying the attendees as dangerous, racists white nationalists. See the following examples:

Rep. Don Beyer (demorat): “Annual gun lobby day protest in Richmond drew large numbers of white nationalists, militias, and racist conspiracy theorists this year. Neo-Nazis tried to use this rally to launch violent attacks. Trump’s symbolism and memories of Charlottesville are vivid in many minds today.”

HuffPo: “The Colossal Gun Rally In Richmond Was Co-Opted By Extremists

Gov. Ralph “Coonman” Northam: “We are all thankful that today passed without incident. The teams successfully de-escalated what could have been a volatile situation. I will continue to listen to the voices of Virginians, and will do everything in my power to keep our Commonwealth safe.”

Reported by Turning Point USA: “MSNBC’s Chris Hayes says today’s Peaceful Pro-2A #VirginiaRally sent an “explicit and implicit message” of “don’t you dare enact your policies, if you do we will use these guns against you.”

Media Hogg: “How many of these people do you think would support the Black Panthers right to carry? Or armed resistance to the white militias that stole the North American continent? Answer: none because they only want guns to enforce white supremacy.”

David Rothschild (a Twitter blue-checked verified economist): “The White Men (and they are all White Men, because non-White Men would not be safe in this crowd) are explicitly TERRORIZING US to demonstrate to lawmakers they will cause more TERROR if they pass gun safety measures the voters wanted and voted them into office to pass.”

Another one of David’s tweets: “The FACT that there were a handful of minorities at the rally designed to terrorize the Virginia lawmakers AND no one got shot, does invalidate the stated goals of the rally to terrorize Virginia lawmakers. Nor does it make the movement inclusive.”

As you can see, the narrative is that there were very, very dangerous people and gun owners at this rally.

Why is their hyperbole so dangerous? Because of this: “Virginia Senate advances ‘red flag’ gun law, despite rally”

From the AP article:

“The day after a massive gathering of gun-rights activists at the Virginia Capitol, the state Senate on Tuesday advanced legislation that would allow authorities to take guns away from people deemed dangerous to themselves or others.

The Democratic-led Senate gave preliminary approval to approved the so-called “red flag” law. The measure is set for a final vote in the Senate, likely Wednesday, before going to the House.”

I’d be curious to see the red flag law text that defines how a petitioner can deem someone is “dangerous” to others. Because based upon the inflammatory language demorats use, they will always deem us gun owners as a “danger.”

CNN’s 7-hour Climate Town Hall extravaganza cheered by activists

HARD PASS for me and this “extravaganza.”

From MSN: Organizations that advocate for the health of the climate and the urgency of global warming are praising CNN after the network announced that its climate-focused town halls next week will run for seven hours.

On Sept. 4, the network will broadcast 10 back-to-back town halls with Democratic presidential candidates focused on climate change, running from 5 p.m. ET to midnight. Network anchors and hosts Wolf Blitzer, Anderson Cooper, Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo, Erin Burnett will do the questioning.

“Tackling the climate crisis is one of the top polling issues among voters this election, which is why it is important that CNN is doing the right thing and devoting so much time to a conversation that the public wants to hear,” said Adam Beitman, a spokesman for the Sierra Club. “The network deserves kudos. We’re hopeful that this is just the start of CNN and other TV news outlets devoting much more airtime to the climate crisis, which threatens the health and safety of communities across the country.”

“We’re glad that CNN is devoting this town hall to the climate crisis,” said Denis Dison, a spokesman for the Natural Resources Defense Council Action Fund. “After four years of climate denial from the White House, the next U.S. president will have to take bold action to put America at the forefront of a clean energy economy, so the least we can expect is for the political media to press the candidates for realistic plans about how they intend to do that.”

“Devoting hours of air time to the climate crisis is a good step that we hope spurs other networks, news outlets and organizations to follow suit,” said Laura Daniel Davis of the National Wildlife Federation.

Many climate advocacy organizations are displeased, however, that the Democratic National Committee has not agreed to host a climate-focused candidate debate. “CNN has stepped up where [chairman] Tom Perez and the DNC deliberately dropped the ball,” said CREDO Action campaign manager Jelani Drew-Davi. “Seven hours of content focused on the climate crisis is huge for over half a million grassroots activists who pushed the DNC for an official climate debate.”

But, added Drew-Davi, “town halls and summits simply don’t get the same viewership that an official DNC debate does.”

A spokesman for Greenpeace USA also framed the town halls in the context of a potential climate debate. “The format of CNN’s town hall shows exactly why a DNC-sanctioned climate debate would have been ideal: to have the candidates all on stage at the same time discussing how they would combat the climate crisis,” said Ryan Schleeter. “The seven-hour format makes it incredibly difficult for viewers to compare the candidates’ policies and make an informed choice as to who is best positioned to act in the interest of people and the planet.”

CNN, which did not respond to a request for an interview about the town halls, is not the only game in town, however. The network’s left-leaning competitor, MSNBC, is partnering on a two-day climate change forum at Georgetown University on Sept. 18-19. MSNBC hosts Chris Hayes and Ali Velshi will moderate the forum and interview 2020 candidates about how they would address the crisis.
