Steve Scalise’s Powerful 2A Argument Neutered by Dismissive Democrats

Ignorance may be bliss for the democrats, but a half-truth is still a lie…even if it occurs before Congress.

Thankfully, a massive majority of Americans have never been involved in a shootout, a gunfight, or a revolutionary war against a tyrannical government.

The sheer terror that one would face in any of these situations would be enough to change your views on the world around you, likely immediately, and irreversibly.  There are epiphany-laden lessons within these horrifying moments, however, and we would be wise to listen to those who have had the misfortune to experience them.

For instance, the well-manicured Constitution of the United States, which was written by men who not only faced a prolonged hail of British bullets, but were called upon to protect the rest of this burgeoning nation as well…including its women, children, elderly, and impaired.  This experience was so profound that it spawned one of the most powerful and well-articulated pieces of literature ever created – and one that includes the all-important Second Amendment.

And while few sane Americans are going to deny that the Founding Fathers were correct, we live in a nation today which is afraid of such harsh truths…particularly as it pertains to our right to bear arms.

This is precisely what Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise is worried about, and why he appeared on Breitbart Radio to explain the democratic blackballing of his own harrowing experience.

Scalise said, “They’re moving a gun control bill this week. The Democrats have, with their hard shift to the left, they’re already moving towards taking away the right to law-abiding citizens to have a gun. So we’re having a hearing on gun violence in the new Democrat-controlled House Judiciary Committee, and Doug Collins, the Republican on our side, wanted me to be one of the witnesses to testify.”

Scalise explained, “Historically, if a member of Congress — Republican or Democrat — wants to testify before a committee and they have something unique to say, we provide that venue from him to do it. We’ve done it in the past when were were in the majority, and Democrats in the previous majority did. For whatever reason, the Democrat in charge of the committee says he won’t let me testify in that same forum. [He is] trying to block my testimony on gun violence. How ridiculous is that?”

Scalise added, “The irony is, can you or anybody else name who was on that panel that day? Typically, these congressional hearings get no attention. But when he banned me and tried to stop me from testifying, I ended up getting a lot more national attention for my message.”

Then the formerly targeted Congressman laid it out even more plainly.

Scalise went on, “Look, it was people with guns who saved my life. Because the bad guys out there, they’re going to find a way — whether it’s knives or guns or bombs — they’re going to find a way to do what they do, with or without new rules that block people that are law-abiding citizens.”

Ignorance may be bliss for the democrats, but a half-truth is still a lie…even if it occurs before Congress.

Ivanka Trump Responds To CNN Panel Mocking Trump Supporters, Says What They Did Is ‘Disgusting’

Published

on

A panel on CNN mocked Trump supporters over the weekend in a video that has since gone viral and earned the ire of not only those who back the president, the president himself, but also his family members. Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter came to the defense of millions of Americans who voted for her father in the previous 2016 election, calling what the panel did “disgusting.” In the video, CNN host Don Lemon and friends made fun of Trump fans, calling them “rubes” who can’t read or do basic math. Here’s more on what Ivanka said about the whole fiasco via The Daily Wire: Early Tuesday morning, Trump’s daughter Ivanka took CNN to task for the panel, pointing out that the network constantly bemoans the divisions in the country while making fun of those who don’t vote Democrat. “You consistently make fun of half the country and then complain that it is divided,” Ivanka tweeted. “The arrogance, mocking accents and smug ridicule of this nation’s ‘Real Elites’ is disgusting.” https://twitter.com/IvankaTrump/status/1222126462347681793 As The Daily Wire previously reported, the panel consisted of writer Wajahat Ali and Republican consultant Rick Wilson, who claimed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo “knows deep in his heart that Donald Trump couldn’t find Ukraine on a map if you had the letter U and a picture of an actual physical crane next to it.” Wilson later went on to dawn a horrible fake southern accent and said, “He knows that this is, you know, an administration defined by ignorance of the world, and so that’s partly him playing to their base and playing to their audience, you know, credulous boomer rube demo that back Donald Trump, that wants to think that Donald Trump’s a smart one, and y’all — y’all elitists are dumb.” Here’s a full transcript…

CNN Panel Mocks Trump Supporters In Viral Video; President Calls Don Lemon ‘Dumbest Man On Television’

Published

on

Popular left-wing news outlet CNN has a well earned reputation for being a little less than trustworthy when it comes to the stories they pursue and cover for their viewers, but what’s worse is how they treat folks who tend to have a different worldview than the one they ascribe to. A recent clip, which has gone viral, of a panel on CNN disparaging Trump supporters is proves this claim to be true, but thankfully, we have a president who isn’t afraid to punch back and to defend his backers when someone attacks them. Here’s more on this from the Daily Wire: In the discussion, which occurred over the weekend, the host, Don Lemon, and two Trump critics, op-ed writer Wajahat Ali and Republican Rick Wilson, suggest that Trump supporters are illiterate “rubes” who can’t read a map or do basic math. Speaking of Sec. of State Mike Pompeo, Wilson said that he “knows deep in his heart that Donald Trump couldn’t find Ukraine on a map if you had the letter U and a picture of an actual physical crane next to it” — a line that Lemon found side-splittingly hilarious. Wilson then widened his mockery to include Trump’s “base” of supporters. “He knows that this is, you know, an administration defined by ignorance of the world, and so that’s partly him playing to their base and playing to their audience, you know, credulous boomer rube demo that back Donald Trump, that wants to think that Donald Trump’s a smart one, and y’all — y’all elitists are dumb,” said Wilson, adopting a southern accent. “You elitists with your geography and your maps and your spelling…” mocked Ali. “Your math, your reading,” said Wilson. “Yes, your reading, you know,” Ali added. “Your geography knowing other countries. Sipping your latte.” “All…
