MLB Star Whose Family Fled Castro Has Perfect Response to Critics of His Stance on the Second Amendment

I think all Americans can learn a thing or two from those who fled Castro in the 60’s.

I think all Americans can learn a thing or two from those who fled Castro in the 60’s.

Cuba has become somewhat of a romanticized example of the glories of communism to young, idealistic, economically-illiterate leftists, but a quick survey of the history of the establishment of Cuba’s communist government would give anyone pause.

The Cuban population in the US is made up largely of refugees and descendants of refugees who know all too well the price of free healthcare and national literacy: gross human rights violation, seizure of private property, and the imprisonment, torture, and death of political dissidents.

So Major League Baseball star and Cuban-American J.D. Martinez knows all to well the power of an armed populace to protect against tyranny, since his family fled tyranny during the Cuban revolution and appreciates American liberty in a way many here simply cannot.

This was his attitude when critics descended on him this week for a five-year-old (that’s right, five) Instagram post defending the Second Amendment.

Here was the post:

The quote, attributed to Hitler, is likely a misquote, The Blaze points out, but Hitler’s comments on gun ownership for private citizens is even more chilling:

“The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subjugated races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subjugated races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing.” — Hitler’s Table Talk, 1941-1944: Secret Conversations

Martinez, the Daily Wire reports, did initially apologize if the post offended anyone, but refused to back down on his support for the Second Amendment, citing his family’s history:

“As most of you guys know I’m Cuban-American, and most of my family was run out of Cuba because of a brutal dictator,” Martinez told a swarm of reporters on Tuesday. “It’s terrible. It’s one of those things where I’ll never get to meet some of my family because of it.”

“I love my country. I stand by the Constitution and I stand by the Second Amendment,” he continued. “It’s something I take pride in and it’s something I’ll back up.”

“Everybody has a right to stand by what they believe in and that’s what makes us American,” added Martinez, according to the New York Daily News. “We’re not all going to believe in the same things, but that’s what makes this country so great.”

Amen to that!

Russia Completely Censors Navalny News After USA Issues Threat

Is Putin hiding Navalny to avoid further condemnation from the US?

Published

on

As Vladimir Putin continues to work up his reputation as the world’s most despicable and despotic leader, it appears as though he does have some jitters when it comes to dealing with the mighty USA. Over the course of the last several weeks, the two superpowers have exchanged a number of insults and threats, centered around any number of issues – all of which are of Putin’s own doing. First, US President Joe Biden went ahead and told the world that he believed Putin to be “a killer” – a statement that reportedly irked Putin to no end.  And then there were the hack attacks against the United States that saw Biden slap a number of hefty sanctions on Moscow. Now, as anti-Putin journalist Alexei Navalny continues a slow and agonizing march toward death at a Russian prison camp hospital, Biden and the US government have warned Putin that his demise could brings a world of pain to the Kremlin. This has pushed Putin to enact a total blackout of news on Navalny’s condition. Russian state TV has imposed a virtual blackout on coverage on Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny amid claims he could die at “any minute” in a prison hospital. The imprisoned 44-year-old, a prominent critic of President Vladimir Putin, has been on hunger strike and there are planned protests in 77 cities as a show of support. The protests on Wednesday will coincide with Vladimir Putin’s key annual state of the nation address to parliament. The Russian Government have said the protests are illegal. Putin and Biden had briefly considered a summit meeting to discuss this latest dissonance, but there is no telling where those negations stand after this latest malfeasance by the Russian government.
