Latest target of gun control activists: Jersey Mike’s sub sandwich chain, which is being threatened with a boycott. Generally, because they allow customers who openly carry weapons, but more specifically because of a photo that went viral on the Internet of one unidentified customer improperly (I’d say “idiotically”) carrying his weapon.
1. I don’t get why Jersey Mike’s is responsible for this, or why every other customer who knows how to carry properly is expected to pay for it. It seems to me that the proper response would have been to point out the customer to the nearest law enforcement officer. For all we know, that might have happened; you can’t tell from one photo.
2. A call to boycott Jersey Mike’s Subs by gun control-supporting liberals is just likely to spark more patronage from gun owners, who probably buy more sub sandwiches anyway (I assume liberals prefer eating lunch at California Jason’s Kale Kollective.)
3. I hope by now this guy has learned his lesson about not carrying a gun this way, either from all the attention on the Internet, or more likely from having shot himself in the rump roast.
So much for the idea that being young, charismatic and photogenic was the key to winning the Democratic Presidential nomination: First, “Beto” O’Rourke packed up his skateboard and dropped out, and now, Kamala Harris looks like the next bowling pin that’s beginning to wobble. Guess accusing your own primary voters of being sexists and racists for not supporting you isn’t any better a strategy than threatening to take away everyone’s guns and religious freedom.
Harris, whose early momentum quickly faded along with her poll numbers, has laid off most of her staff in New Hampshire, the first state to hold a primary, and closed most of her campaign offices there. But she insists she’s not down for the count: she told Fox News, “I’m all in on Iowa, and I feel good about it.”
If anyone believes that Kamala Harris feels good about being in Iowa, “Beto” has a used skateboard he’d like to sell you. (You’ll have to buy your own helmet; I suspect he never wore one of those.)
I wanted to make sure you also read these comments:
Here’s a headline that’s long overdue, and I hope we start seeing a lot more of them: An Antifa thug in Oregon who bashed a man’s head open by attacking him from behind with a baton while he was trying to help another person being attacked was unmasked, identified and sentenced to nearly six years in prison. He also assaulted an officer while trying to escape.
As the story at the link notes, the defendant’s attorney “attacked the nearly six-year sentence, calling it ‘one of the harshest sentences I've seen for someone with no criminal background and young age.’" He admitted that his client had made ‘a really terrible decision’ and acknowledged that he'd been captured on camera, "but he claimed that at least two other people hit Kelly with batons, as well.”
My response: Then find the other two and let his client have two cellmates (to their credit, that’s what local prosecutors say they’re working on.) And his client is 24 years old. Exactly how much older does he need to become before he realizes that it’s unacceptable to put on a mask and club innocent people over the head because he doesn’t agree with somebody’s political views, not even necessarily those of the person he’s clubbing?
For too long, officials in leftist cities have turned a blind eye to the blatantly un-American violence of Antifa, which claims that it’s okay to “punch fascists,” then defines “fascists” as “anyone we disagree with.” It’s long past time that they were made to understand that in America, it’s not okay to commit violence against any person for expressing any political belief, and that if you think it is, then you are the fascist.
If you think we can elect Bernie Sanders President and moderate Democrats in Congress will act as a firewall against some of his more destructive socialist ideas, guess again. If they all don’t bow down before socialism, he’ll go to their states and destroy them and replace them with more socialists.
“Wow, Huckabee, where do you get these wild and crazy right-wing conspiracy theories?!”
Um...from Bernie Sanders...
Bible Verse of the Day (KJV)
"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart;
and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him,
and he shall direct thy paths."
