What If They Could Confiscate All of the Guns?

What would happen if Democrats were able to impose tyranny at the level required to eradicate the 434 million firearms in civilian possession? For the answer, we turn to the authoritarian left’s favorite role model, communist China.

CNN ran this story a year ago:

Over the weekend, six people were killed and 14 injured after a knife-wielding man stabbed passersby on a pedestrian shopping street in the eastern Chinese city of Anqing.

In contravention of liberal ideology, banning guns does not ban the evil and insanity that cause people to indiscriminately murder:

With guns strictly controlled and out of reach for ordinary people, knives have become the most common weapon used in such atrocities.

Maniacs behind the Bamboo Curtain even attack schools with knives:

In April, two children were killed when a knife-wielding man entered a kindergarten in southern China. An additional 14 children and two teachers were wounded, according to state news agency Xinhua.

There are limits to the body count you can run up with a knife. The weapon used in the worst mass murder at a school in US history was not a knife — or a gun either. The killer used dynamite.

One of the most conspicuously evil mass murders in recent memory involved an attack on a Christmas parade. The weapon of choice was an SUV.

Not that you can’t kill a lot of people with a knife:

In December, another mass stabbing in a small city in northeastern Liaoning province left seven people dead and another seven injured. State media reported the 62-year-old suspect was socially withdrawn after losing his son and getting divorced, and carried out the attack to express his “dissatisfaction towards society.”

No wonder Biden et al. want to pretend the firearms that have been integral to American culture from the beginning cause mass killings. If the actual cause is “dissatisfaction towards society,” one solution would be for him and his party to go away. Under the current administration, 79% of the US population understands that America is on the wrong track.

As in the USA, the immediate cause of mass murder in China (not counting the genocidal government) is psychos on the loose:

In China, public access to mental health services remains limited, partially due to a shortage of qualified mental care professionals.

Don’t look for stories like this from CNN in the near future. The liberal establishment is in exploitation mode following the shootings in Uvalde. Democrats don’t want to hear about mental illness when they have a chance to deny law-abiding citizens their fundamental right of self-defense.

Beto O’Rourke Hijacks Abbott Response to Uvalde

Democrat candidate for Governor of Texas Beto O’Rourke has confirmed that he is still at his party’s vanguard by hijacking Uvalde for the sake of self-promotion and authoritarian left-wing politics.

You thought Biden hit rock bottom with his divisive demagoguery? Robert Francis O’Rourke digs lower still:

During Gov. Greg Abbott’s press briefing today updating the public on the latest developments following yesterday’s deadly mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, O’Rourke took it upon himself to crash the proceedings in a simultaneously shameless and shameful attempt to score political points.

Watch in horror at what prominent Democrats have become:

The gent who accurately observed that O’Rourke is a “sick son of a bitch” is Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin.

During his rare emergences from his basement during the 2020 campaign, Biden promised to make Beto O’Rourke his gun confiscation czar, in charge of rendering the US population defenseless by disarming it. Maybe this shameful publicity stunt was meant as a reminder that O’Rourke is the right moonbat for the job, in case running for governor doesn’t work out.

Nancy Pelosi Attacks Catholic Church

This should put an end to high priestess of moonbattery Nancy Pelosi’s pretense of being Catholic:

Pelosi lashed out against the Catholic Church after she was banned from Holy Communion by San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone over her “extreme” position on abortion, taking her case to MSNBC to lecture the world’s oldest religious institution.

As noted earlier, it is no overstatement to characterize Pelosi’s advocacy of abortion as extreme. To allow her to take communion while she obstinately persists in manifest grave sin would contribute to the campaign to destroy Christianity from within, subordinating it to leftism.

Pelosi took to the obsequiously supportive far-left platform Morning Joe to denounce Catholicism:

“So these same people are against contraception, family planning, in vitro fertilization,” she continued. “It’s… it’s a blanket thing and they use abortion as the front man for it while they try to undo so much, that’s what they tried to do in the Affordable Care Act, which didn’t have anything about terminating an abortion,” correcting herself, “a pregnancy.”

Pelosi added, “So let’s just say that, you know, I wonder about death penalty, which I am opposed to, so is the church, but they take no action against people who may not share their view.”

That is, she equated killing innocent children with executing murderers in accordance with the law. Nancy Pelosi is moral depravity incarnate. No wonder Democrats choose her to be Speaker of the House.

She then accused Archbishop Cordileone of being a homophobe, a cardinal sin in “woke” leftist dogma.

She denounced Cordileone for opposing the LGBT agenda, which all Christians do by definition, the Biblical position on sexual depravity being clear. While doing so, she sanctimoniously cited the gospel of Matthew. As William Shakespeare wrote, “The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose.” So can his myrmidons like Pelosi.

Speaking of servants of Satan, the media takes her side. The San Francisco Examiner demands that Cordileone be removed from his position for not kneeling before Big Government by allowing Pelosi to take communion in violation of his faith.

Divisive Demagoguery From Atop Dead Children

When tragedy hits, the country needs a leader, to pull us together. The opposite of a leader has been installed in the White House. Disgustingly, Biden immediately exploited yesterday’s shootings in Uvalde as an opportunity to climb atop children’s corpses and stridently attack the Constitution:

Biden passionately called on Congress to pass gun control legislation and urged the country to “stand up to the gun lobby” Tuesday, just hours after a gunman killed 18 children and multiple adults at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas.

The body count is now up to 19 children, two adults.

Shrieked the Great Unifier:

“When in God’s name are we going to stand up to the gun lobby? When in God’s name are we going to do what we all know in our gut needs to be done?”

His teleprompter programmers laid on the rhetoric thick and heavy:

“Why are we willing to live with this carnage?”

The point of course is never to let a crisis go to waste:

“It’s time to turn this pain into action,” the president stated. … “It’s time to act and to tell those who obstruct or delay or blocked the common-sense gun laws, we need to let you know that we will not forget.”

The phrase “common sense gun laws” is a euphemism for attacks by left-wing authoritarians on the crucial Second Amendment.

Our constitutionally protected right of self-defense did not kill those kids and teachers. Evil did. The solution is not to disarm the law-abiding, or to pretend that firearms can be uninvented, which would be the only way to keep them out of the hands of criminals. It lies in confronting the evil that is corroding American society. More concretely, it lies in addressing the mental illness epidemic that was exacerbated by the Covid lockdowns and providing better security for schools.

Biden’s divisive demagoguery failed to impress Tucker Carlson or Will Cain:

Imagine the school security that could be purchased with the recent $40 billion handout to Ukraine.

In his shamelessness, Biden is a fit figurehead for the political wing of the liberal establishment. Other moonbats are lining up to exploit the dead children:

“The blood of every child that dies of gun violence in this country is on the hands of the Republican Party,” Hollywood director Rob Reiner said.

Archie Bunker was too kind when he called this guy “Meathead.”

Podcast co-host of One America pointed fingers at Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and his state’s constitutional carry laws passed last year which allow for citizens ages 21 and over to openly carry handguns without a license.

Salvador Ramos was only 18 — not that open carry laws have any relevance. Progressives may be surprised to learn that it is already illegal to shoot children in all 50 states.

Ade Osadolor-Hernandez, the advisory board director of the pro-gun control group Students Demand Action, joined MSNBC’s Ari Melber to respond to the shooting by pointing to “systemic inequities” in the “LatinX” community.

If a Hispanic shoots other Hispanics, it could only be because America is racist.

Hold on, it gets crazier. Women’s March board member Lucy Flores uses the dead kids to promote producing more dead kids through abortion:

“Texas is trying to force women to birth children just so they can be shot in school.”

It is safe to assume that Salvador Ramos was insane. There is a lot of that going around.

Creepy Neighbor State Farm Takes Half Step Back

The liberal establishment aggressively supports the perverse sexual indoctrination of children. That does not mean the entire country has become so depraved that it deserves to be flushed into hell. State Farm’s furtive program to groom kids 5 and up resulted in enough public outrage that it actually backed down slightly from its progressive stance. In a statement, it proclaimed that it no longer supports GenderCool in a campaign to distribute LGBT propaganda to elementary schools:

“This program that included books about gender identity was intended to promote inclusivity. Conversations about gender and identity should happen at home with parents. We don’t support required curriculum in schools on this topic. We support organizations providing resources for parents to have these conversations.”

Aiding and abetting abusive parents who corrupt their own children is relatively uncontroversial.

“We will continue to explore how we can support organizations that provide tools and resources that align with our commitment to diversity and inclusion.”

State Farm originally denied that the books were going to schools, but had to abandon that lie after it was quickly exposed.

The perv watching kids play through his blinds has been forced to step back — but grudgingly, and not very far back. State Farm has a long way to go to regain public trust.

Andrew Abdullah Should Have Been in Prison

Here is how NYPD Chief of Detectives James Essig describes the shooting of Goldman Sachs employee Daniel Enriquez, allegedly by Andrew Abdullah Sunday morning aboard the Q train heading into Manhattan:

“The male suddenly and without any prior interactions or provocation walked up to our victim… and shot him one time in the chest.”

There was no discernable motive. Random violence has become one of the most prominent characteristics of New York, as civilization crumbles under the constant onslaught of moonbattery.

Who’s to blame? It can’t be Andrew Abdullah; that would suggest personal responsibility, which is out of fashion.

Liberals will blame the gun used. It would be more sensible to blame the liberals running a system that returns sociopaths to the street again and again until someone dies.

Abdullah, who has at least 19 arrests in more than a dozen incidents since 2015, fled the Canal Street station after the shooting and had been the subject of a police manhunt.

He had been freed after a stolen car bust in April, despite Brooklyn prosecutors asking that he be held on $15,000 bail.

In no sane country would Abdullah have been running around loose, gunning down random passengers on the NYC subway.

The single biggest stimulus to the economy are the unemployment benefits we're paying. These people go out and they spend the money. They go out and they have to get by to everything from paying their mortgage or buying food or just getting by.

Big Government Causes Pilot Shortage

Shortages caused by government hypertrophy apply to more than baby formula. Thanks to steady strangulation by bureaucratic growth, we are also running out of pilots:

Just so long as politicians can posture as if they are “doing something” about some problem hyped by the media, that’s the important thing.

At least there is a silver lining. If flights are reduced because there aren’t enough pilots, that will cut down on harmless carbon emissions. According to the ideology of our government, this could save life on earth.

Meanwhile, what pilots are recruited are increasingly selected on an identity group basis. Would you trust Ketanji Brown Jackson to pilot a jet?

Sooner or later, Affirmative Action hiring will lead to disasters. It may come as a relief when Democrats make flying illegal so as not to offend the climate.

Brian Stelter’s Equivalent in 1984

In their rush to impose totalitarianism, Democrats sometimes overstep and have to retreat. The American public is still armed, and our elections have not yet been reduced to total farce, so despite Democrat control of Big Tech and 90% of the media, they can’t move too far too fast. That’s why they had to pull the plug (for now) on professional liar Nina Jankowicz’s Ministry of Truth.

Americans are relieved; the anti-Americans comprising the liberal establishment are not. Brian Stelter squeaked mournfully that the Ministry of Truth “sounded logical” but was “doomed to fail” because conservatives destroyed it with the sort of misinformation the ministry was designed to protect against.

If Stelter seems familiar, you might be thinking of the character Tom Parsons from 1984:

He was a fattish but active man of paralyzing stupidity, a mass of imbecile enthusiasms — one of those completely unquestioning, devoted drudges on whom, more even than on the Thought Police, the stability of the Party depended.

Brian Stelters are almost as important as the ratlike Merrick Garland and Carl Cameron types who run the bureaucratic machinery or call out thought criminals so that they might be carted off to the Ministry of Love.

Biden Confirms High Gas Prices Are Part of Plan

If skyrocketing gas prices have been crippling for you, look at the bright side. The guy who deliberately caused them with his systematic war on domestic energy production (see e.g. here, here, here, here, here) thinks they are wonderful, because they will lead to an “incredible transition” from affordable and reliable energy to energy that is neither affordable nor reliable, but that Democrats prefer because it is useful for money laundering and because it is politically righteous according to their climate ideology.

Croaks Biden:

“[When] it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it’s over, we’ll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over.”

This means that it will not be over when Democrats take their boot off the neck of the oil industry, because that would be a return to the status quo ante, not a transition. It will be over when we stop expecting to be able to drive wherever we want and run our computers every day. Wind turbines just won’t generate that much energy, even if Democrats deface the whole country with the hideous monstrosities and use them to chop the last eagle to bits.

Already, Biden’s war on energy is costing the average American thousands of dollars per year. Letting Democrats take power doesn’t come cheap.

It would be nice to think that this will at least result in more pleasant weather, per leftist ideology. Whether even Biden actually believes that is doubtful. We’ll get the same heat in the summer; we just won’t be able to afford to run the AC.

State Farm Promotes LGBT Indoctrination of 5-Year-Olds

Just 2 years ago, corporate America was liberal-leaning but more or less conventional. Then came the Black Lives Matter riots, which inspired virtually every major corporation to throw in its lot with the radical left. The devotion to extreme moonbattery by companies like State Farm is now almost beyond belief:

State Farm is encouraging its agents in Florida to donate books promoting transgenderism to 5-year-olds to their local schools or public libraries, according to an email shared by a whistleblower.

That will teach Ron DeSantis a lesson for putting the brakes on sexual indoctrination in the classroom for kindergarten through third grade.

State Farm has partnered with the GenderCool Project, which promotes issues of gender identity in children through various advocacy and public awareness programs, to donate a packet of three books to local schools and public libraries.

The books push the insane, perverted, and exceedingly unhealthy dogma that boys can become girls and vice versa. GenderCool Project markets them to age 5 and over.

“The project’s goal is to increase representation of LGBTQ+ books and support our communities in having challenging, important and empowering conversations with children age 5+,” the email said.

How siccing LGBT groomers on 5-year-olds helps sell insurance is anyone’s guess.

In the email, State Farm’s Jose Soto, a Florida “corporate responsibility analyst,” seeks to recruit insurance agents to help distribute the books. The purpose is “to give back,” confirming that this expression is as meaningless as it is irritating, and to “help support the LGBTQ+ community” — that is, support it in its efforts to corrupt children by sowing seeds of mental illness and sexual depravity.

Florida may be ground zero because Disney leads the march to hell as the quintessential morally rotten moonbat corporation and because Governor DeSantis has put up resistance. But this campaign is not limited to one state:

“Nationwide, approximately 550 State Farm agents and employees will have the opportunity to donate this three book bundle to their local teacher, community center, or library of their choice,” Soto wrote in the email.

Such books will be illegal in Florida classrooms through third grade as of July 1, thanks to the Parental Rights in Education Bill.

Some degree of trust is required when buying insurance. Would you trust the sort of people who ignore the law in an attempt to sexually corrupt 5-year-olds?

We have seen what pushing the sick LGBT agenda on children has done for Disney’s public image. Let’s hope it does the same for State Farm.

“Like a good neighbor,” go the ads, “State Farm is there.” If you have neighbors like State Farm, keep them away from your kids until you can move.

The history of mankind is a history of the subjugation and exploitation of a great majority of people by an elite few by what has been appropriately termed the 'ruling class'. The ruling class has many manifestations. It can take the form of a religious orthodoxy, a monarchy, a dictatorship of the proletariat, outright fascism, or, in the case of the United States, corporate statism.
