Fascist Anti-NRA Group Posts Video Suggesting Soviet-Style Farm Labor Camps For Gun Owners

Reaction was pretty much what one might expect.

On Wednesday, the fascist anti-NRA Facebook page “Hunters Against NRA” posted a video in which it suggested Soviet-style farm labor camps for gun owners.

These camps, according to “Skylar B.,” are for gun owners who either can’t or refuse to pay his gun property tax.

“This is not forced labor,” the group claims.  “If we made this a law, you wouldn’t have to pay a gun property tax if you didn’t own a gun. Otherwise, you can work off the property tax at 90 cents an hour at a government-owned or non-gun owner’s farm. The options are: owning a gun and paying the tax, owning a gun and working off the tax or not owning and not having to deal with the tax. Not paying the tax in any way if you were required to would be the an issue for the IRS, of course.”

This is just the latest harebrained idea Skylar B. has put forward.

He started with a nationwide gun census and moved on to a wage garnishment programin which gun owners would have their wages taken whenever a mass shooting takes place.  From there, he proposed a gun property tax program and then suggested a Nazi-like ID badge for gun owners.

As with all of his other videos, Skylar issued this warning: “As per our lawyer Andy…You are NOT ALLOWED TO SHARE THIS IF YOU ARE PRO NRA OR PRO GUN. This goes for sharing to groups, pages or your personal profile. Please keep the comments positive and constructive and do not comment more than 2 or 3 times a person. Also stop following the page if you are troll. This is the same as cyber-stalking.”

Here’s the video:

Reaction was pretty much what one might expect.

In addition to violating the first, second, eighth and fourteenth amendments, this group now proposes to add violating the thirteenth amendment,” one person said.  “How many more constitutional violations do you propose with your agenda?

Apparently, as many as it takes to get the Second Amendment stripped from the Constitution…

So a $400 shotgun gets a $200 tax, according to a previous video. So to pay off that $200 at 90¢ you would have to work 223 hours in one year, sounds like forced labor (slavery) which is illegal unless used as a punishment for a crime and convicted in court,” another person said.

Making matters worse, the page actually claims to be conservative and pro-Trump.

Putin Puffs Out His Chest: Crossing ‘Red Lines’ Will Prompt ‘Asymmetrical’ Response

Putin has been extremely antsy as of late.

Russia

It appears that US President Joe Biden is really getting under the skin of Russian President Dictator Vladimir Putin. These leaders of the world two preeminent superpowers have been trading barbs for weeks now, and on a range of subjects.  The latest focus of their fury has to do with the Kremlin’s continued aggression against Ukraine, where Russian military forces are lining just over the border, with “invasion stripes” painted on their vehicles to prevent friendly fire. This is a tacit admission that there will be fire, and Biden isn’t going to stand for it. The US first sent warships in the direction of the Black Sea in an attempt to deter Putin from poking the bear.  The Russian government responded by blocking the entrance to the area and warning that America’s maneuvers were “adversarial”. Biden responded by sanctioning Russia over a major hacking attack that took place months ago. Now, just ahead of what is believed to be an inevitable Russian invasion of Ukraine, Putin is once again puffing out his chest. Russian President Vladimir Putin, in his annual State of the Nation speech, warned on Wednesday against provoking his country, promising a swift retaliation against anyone who crossed “red lines.“ Moscow will respond “harshly,” “quickly” and “asymmetrically” to foreign provocations, Putin told an audience of Russia’s top officials and lawmakers, adding that he “hoped” no foreign actor would cross Russia’s “red lines,” according to a Reuters translation. Russia is also facing international condemnation for their treatment of journalist Alexei Navalny, who is believed to be at death’s door at a Russian prison hospital.  Joe Biden has said that Russia would “pay a price” if Navalny were to perish in custody of the government.

DOJ Opens Investigation into Minneapolis Police Department

The investigation will feature the department’s civil rights division.

On Tuesday, Derek Chauvin was found guilty on all charges in the death of George Floyd. Chauvin was seen on video kneeling on the neck of Floyd for nearly 9 minutes as the restrained man slowly suffocated, in a moment that has haunted our nation for a year. Now that Chauvin is off to prison, and a likely, lengthy appeals process, the Department of Justice is now hoping to find out exactly what went wrong in Minneapolis, and whether or not there is some systemic issue with the police department itself. Attorney General Merrick Garland announced Wednesday that the Justice Department will be conducting an investigation of law enforcement in Minneapolis following the death of George Floyd. The announcement comes one day after a Hennepin County jury found former police officer Derek Chauvin guilty of second degree murder for killing Floyd. “Yesterday’s verdict in the state criminal trial does not address potentially systemic policing issues in Minneapolis,” Garland said during a press conference. Garland said the probe will be a “fully comprehensive review” that will look into whether the Minneapolis Police Department has a “pattern or practice of unconstitutional or unlawful policing.” He specificed that this includes “using excessive force, including during protests,” as well as “discriminatory conduct and whether its treatment of those with behavioral health disabilities is unlawful.” The DOJ will utilize their civil rights division in the investigation, and the Attorney General said that the move could protect “good cops” from their not-so-pristine peers in the precinct. “I strongly believe that good officers do not want to work in systems that allow bad practices,” Garland said. “Good officers welcome accountability because accountability is an essential part of building trust with the community and public safety requires public trust.” Chauvin was moved to prison on Wednesday, and promptly…
