While Cory Booker is channeling George Orwell, once again the ground has supposedly shifted on Liberty Control.
Good news, the Left has come up with some ‘new’ memes in their synthesized self-righteous condemnation of Liberty in the midst of a ‘Serious Crisis’. Anyone on social media will recognize this all too familiar pattern that will begin the moment the news breaks of a tragedy they can exploit:
- The Left will immediately politicize the pain of others – while projecting that on everyone else.
- ‘Thoughts and Prayers’ are then mercilessly mocked.
- It will be said that the defenders of Liberty ‘have blood on our hands’.
- Then the calls to ‘do something!’ – anything, whether it will solve the problem or not.
- Further restrictions on civil liberties are the made by opportunistic politicians.
- Demands for laws that already exist on Background checks or Civil commitment.
- While other Leftists make more demands for gun confiscation.
- As emotions subside, entreaties for compromise emerge.
This is usually the end stage of the crisis sequence, after all of the juvenile invectives hurled by the Left, after all of the demands that we ‘turn in our guns’, after all of the exposition on how our basic human rights are to be controlled – by them. The national socialist left will realize they won’t be able to bully us into giving up our basic civil liberties. Hence, they will look to exploit something – anything – out of the ‘crisis’, they will try to force us into a compromise whereby they give up nothing and we move down the slippery slope to gun confiscation once more.
Afterwards, any ‘compromises’ or ‘bipartisan’ agreements that restrict the human rights of the innocent will inevitably fail to work. Then when another tragedy takes place the whole sequence begins once again. Existing laws will be ignored in lieu of new laws that do the same thing – while denigrating liberty in the process. This is ‘progress’ to the national socialist Left, seeing each ‘serious crisis’ as an opportunity they can exploit for political gain while never addressing the true causes of these tragedies.
The ‘new’ momentum meme addition to the same old crisis exploitation of the left.
A ‘new’ aspect of the debate has the ground shifting more than the San Andreas Fault. Leftists love their euphemisms, using every kind of synonym for confiscation they can muster. The ground shift meme is no exception, with endless variations that essentially try to exploit the same idea over and over. The problem is that the ground shift meme is only viable once. Then it becomes just one more piece of useless rhetoric thrown out into the ether. The ‘blood on hands’ accusation was the same at one point, now it’s just a pathetic attempt by the left to exploit a crisis they created.
From December 2012 [7 years ago]:
From last year:
March 1, 2018
Fla. Dem: ‘The ground is really shifting’ on gun control.
Apr 9, 2018
Pa. legislature becomes test bed for shifting sands on gun control.
December 26, 2018
2018 Brought A ‘Tectonic Shift’ In The Gun Control Movement, Advocates Say.
Then this year:
April 24, 2019
Democrats Shed Fear of Gun Control in Momentous Shift Entering 2020 Election.
August 4, 2019
Dayton and El Paso Shift Focus to Gun Control and Racism.
August 20, 2019
The political battle lines on guns are shifting.
It getting to the point that these pieces are merely wishcasting by the Liberty Grabbers hoping to move something that isn’t there.
Cory Booker channeling George Orwell.
It’s one thing to reuse the same meme over and over while trying to pretend it’s brand new, it’s quite another to try and sell socialistic slavery as ‘freedom’. Yes, there is nothing like taking away some people’s basic human rights to make them ‘free’. In this case it’s everyone’s favorite political ambulance chaser from New Jersey, Cory Booker, trying to sell the idea that fear is supposed to justify the restriction of the common sense civil Liberty of self-defense. Eliminating fear from modern life would of course be impossible and there is no end to the rationalization of government control that could be used with this absurd pretext.
Apparently he thinks that the government and criminals having a monopoly on the use of force will serve to protect liberty because reasons. Since we all know how criminals and governments scrupulously follow the law, he has the perfect solution to the problem. Sadly because of what the left has done to the culture, we are witness to some more of these tragedies. Statistics show that thankfully these are decreasing and there are ways to solve the problem without restricting Liberty.
Unfortunately, the left has a very myopic view of the situation, only seeing opportunities for them to exploit rather than problems to be solved. Perhaps it is time to leave them out of the conversation and consider real reforms that will save lives instead of destroying Liberty.
One final word.
We of the Pro-Liberty Right need to start using one word when it comes to the Authoritarian Socialist Left’s demands that we incrementally give up our common sense human rights. We have compromised over and over without so much as an acknowledgement or thanks from the left, much less any type of compromise on their part.
There are ways to solve this problem without punishing the innocent and confiscating their private property. These need to be considered to solve this societal problem instead of focusing on inanimate objects. As for the Left’s incessant demands that we give up our basic human rights, we only need this one word response: NO! [Repeat as many times as necessary]
