From the Occupy protests to the recent machinations of the editorial staff of The Journal News, it is becoming painfully obvious that the left is more than happy to demonize law-abiding private citizens in order to forward their version of social change via issues, problems, crises and chaos.
Whether it is Occupy protesters squatting on someone’s private property and driving customers away in droves, or The Journal News’ plot by activist, anti-constitutional crusaders to release the personal information of law-abiding gun owners—potentially endangering their general welfare—brings us to the point where the left has become criminal in their intent and actions—without concern for the safety and security of those affected by their nefarious actions.
Anyone with some street wisdom knew right off the bat that by releasing the personal information of lawful gun owners The Journal News had alerted criminals to the location of homes with guns. Thieves like guns. Additionally, criminals also know the location of homes without guns—a real win-win for the local Ali Baba’s and neighborhood career stalkers.
Almost immediately, inmates in local jails started threatening their correction officers following the release of the map.
Gateway Pundit reported:
“A home of legal pistol permit holder identified by the Journal News was burglarized Saturday. The vandals went straight for the gun safe.”
Just like clockwork.
The problem here is threefold:
- Making this list public put gun owners in danger. There are former judges on that list—even reportedly a woman who was the victim of stalking. There are lunatics on both sides of the aisle, and we have already seen proof of that. There have been threats to the paper and it’s personnel, even their families—so much so they had to hire security to protect them. And there are gun owners who have been contacted by fanatical gun opponents who have threatened their lives as well. (The gun opponents wouldn’t be using a gun, I assume?)
- What good does this do? Or will it do? The friends and neighbors in Newtown, Conn. knew that the shooter’s mother was a gun collector who had guns in her home. That did not prevent the massacre; nor will listing these people’s names and addresses prevent any potential violent act by one of those gun owners or anyone in those homes in those two counties.
- It’s a slippery slope. What’s next? Lists of those who are on welfare? Lists of those who subscribe to pornographic magazines? You get the point. We as Americans are entitled to some level of privacy—gun owners included.
I, myself, have had it. This type of bad behavior by the left is the final straw. It is now putting people in danger. And if we take it higher—meaning: the Oval Office—we see the president and his cabal of czars and advisers murky involvement—currently under the cloak of executive privilege—in the Fast and Furious gun-walking scandal, and allegations of gun-running in Libya.
Possibly even worse, The Washington Examiner, quoting retired Four-Star Admiral James Lyons, writes: “the attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi … was the result of a bungled abduction attempt…. the first stage of an international prisoner exchange … that would have ensured the release of Omar Abdel Rahman, the ‘Blind Sheik’…”
The domestic threat to our security is threatening to become a greater threat than the danger our sworn enemies present abroad—all fomented by the self-professed radicals of the left—squeezing from the top-down (White House) and from the bottom-up (grassroots).
If any of these allegations are true, it would represent the most criminal, duplicitous, blood-stained, scandalous, treasonous administration in history of the United States. Watergate would be like utter child’s play compared to an administration that is involved in actively killing its own citizens for the express purpose of undermining the very system and government that guarantees the individual protection from such tyranny and sheer evil.
Congress needs a select committee to thoroughly investigate these serious allegations of gross and criminal misconduct immediately. The dead can’t speak for themselves. We must speak out for them. If Congress chooses ignore this whole fiasco that left four Americans dead, not to mention the Fast and Furious operation, then I will be ashamed of my country then.
The deafening silence of the president and the Democrats regarding innocent civilians being put in harm’s way should be the final straw for every American who truly believes in the rule of law and the inalienable rights of the individual. To me, it is a de facto endorsement by the highest office in the land to turn law and order on its head, and replace it with the rule of force.
