Why the Liberal Hatred of Citizens With Guns?

snipe 2013/02/17 01:35:52

The liberal penchant for gun control starts with their obsession with controlling the lives and actions of those considered to be their inferiors ... and anyone not liberal is inferior. To amplify the point; progs believe that their innate intellectual superiority gives them a right to control the lives of the not-so-bright. You can only buy a 12 ounce soft drink, you ignorant fool. Stop putting all that salt on your food. You can’t negotiate your own contract with an employer. We’ll tell you how much you’re allowed to work for. Union membership is not a decision for you to make. We’ll make that decision for you. We know best. Do as we say and you’ll be just fine.

What amazing arrogance! Liberals (the more self-aggrandizing among them prefer the term “progressives” – I just call them “progs” or “proggies”) have the most dangerous of superiority complexes … superiority complexes coupled with power.

Now since liberals are entitled to use their superior intelligence to order and control your life, it stands to reason that they’re going to get their proggie panties in a wad when the great unwashed start to show signs of individualism and self reliance. And to a lib there is no act of independence and self-reliance that is more infuriating and alarming than the act of owning – and perhaps using – a gun for the purpose of defending your life and your freedom. How dare you accept the responsibility for your own safety?

And there you have the crux of this anti-gun effort the left and their Dear Leader are putting forth. The very architecture of this gun control campaign is based on an attack on individualism. These anti-gun zealots know their assault weapons ban will not save any lives. The last one didn’t, the next one won’t. They’re fine with that. Saving lives is not their goal. They know that background checks wouldn’t have prevented Sandy Hook, Aurora or almost any other mass shooting. They’re fine with that. Saving lives is not their goal. They know that not one gun control measure they have proposed would have stopped this rogue LA cop. No problem. Again, that’s not the goal they’re working toward. They know that the so-called “gun show loophole” is a complete fiction. Doesn’t matter. The media certainly isn’t going to call them on that, and it’s the best lie available for moving toward gun registration; which, history shows us (even in this country) leads to confiscation.

The left is trying to reign in a beast. Well, a beast in their eyes anyway. To a liberal -- to today’s progressive Democrat -- the independent freedom-loving and self-reliant American is a dangerous beast who must be controlled, a wild horse that must be broken. Individualism must be attacked and discredited. There was, after all, a reason liberal icon Ted Kennedy referred to and praised our “war against individualism!”

We’re supposed to all be a part of a team ... a team of well-behaved horses pulling the carriage of big government along. A headstrong horse that refuses to respond correctly to the master’s whip cannot be tolerated. A person with a strong sense of self-reliance and individual self- worth is, similarly, a dangerous and out of control wild animal that must be corralled … corralled for the common good. The person who celebrates their individualism, and the laws that protect their individual rights, is a threat to the Democrat holy grail of all-encompassing governance. The individual, the independent American, the self-reliant and freedom-loving troublemaker must be wrestled down and the bridle of government domination slipped over their heads.

Obama and the Democrats had their gun control plans ready long, long ago. The plan was ready to be implemented; they were just waiting for two things to happen.

First, of course, they had to re-elect Barack Obama. The second necessary element needed to be a crisis – a mass murder committed with guns – preferably so-called assault weapons. That first criteria – Obama’s reelection – would be the reason liberals didn’t implement their push against the Second Amendment when the shootings happened at the theater in Aurora, Colorado. Obama was still campaigning for his second term. Dang it! A crisis that can’t be exploited! But then, after Obama’s re-election, came Sandy Hook. That was it – prerequisites satisfied – it was time to move against guns.

Democrats love the term “gun violence.” You heard it last night during the State of the Union speech. Note, please, that the term refers to an inanimate object, the gun, not the person who used that gun to kill or wound. To cite the perpetrator would be to hold an individual responsible for their actions with the gun. In the liberal world this cannot be allowed. The instrument must bear the blame, not the individual using it, for you cannot hold an individual responsible for their actions without first recognizing the concept and free will of the individual in the first place. In the world of the left the gun commits the crime – the spoon eats the ice cream.

    That's a good synopsis of the radical left but you don't go far enough on properly labeling them. Like Hitler and Stalin, they are progressive Marxist

    The Left knows that without our guns, they can take over COMPLETLEY, once and for all. NEVER give up your guns or 2A rights.

    It's their plan and has been for quite a while, they think that right now is their golden opportunity.
  • UnusualSuspect 2013/02/17 23:28:56
    For new gun owners:

    Check their backgrounds, test them, photograph them, finger print them, and implant a GPS device in their necks.

    Anything less is asking for trouble, and more deaths in this country.

    What does that matter? What they had IN COMMON is what you should consider. BOTH had complete dictatorial control over nations. How they got there doesn't really figure into the equation.
  • DeathBy... Aqua Su... 2013/02/18 20:49:52
    That is a ridiculous thing to say. I think we should consider the similarities AND differences. Not just what they had in common. Just because Stalin and Hitler had total authority doesn't mean they share the same agenda. And yes how they got there is tremendously important to the equation.

    Obama and Bush were both presidents of the United States with executive control over their nations. Therefor they have the same agenda. This is basically what you just said.

    That is the lie that lets the Left sleep at night:

    As socialists, we are opponents of the Jews, because we see, in the Hebrews, the incarnation of capitalism, of the misuse of the nation’s goods. - Joseph Paul Goebbels

    We are Socialists, we are enemies of the capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance and we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions. - Adolf Hitler

    If you depart from moral absolutes, you go into a bottomless pit. Communism and Nazism were catastrophic evils which both derived from moral relativism. Their differences were minor compared to their similarities. - Paul Johnson

    The Big Lie of the late 20th century was that Nazism was Rightist. It was in fact typical of the Leftism of its day. It was only to the Right of Stalin's Communism. The very word 'Nazi' is a German abbreviation for 'National Socialist' (Nationalsozialist) and the full name of Hitler's political party (translated) was 'The National Socialist German Workers' Party' (In German: Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei). - Dr. John Joseph Ray

    Less than 1000 people have been killed by a mass shooting in a school or public place.
    There are 10-12,000 alcohol related fatalities each year but you don't see anybody outlawing alcohol or making the law tougher on DUI's. No federal bank of offenders so states can know an offender has DUI's somewhere else. My point? The interest in gun law now is Barry's way of pouncing on emotions and making himself look good, he doesn't care about loss of life, he cares about politics.
