It is socially acceptable for liberals to say they want to kill conservatives, but it is not acceptable for political conservatives to say the same thing. Welcome to the new social norm of approved liberal bigotry. I see a broad and consistent pattern. Liberal academics and their trolls have asked for the death of people who have a political idea with which they disagree. Here is what they said and what you should do about it.
David W. Guth is a tenured professor of journalism in the William Allen White School of Journalism and Mass Communications at the University of Kansas. After the mass murder by a psychotic individual at the DC Navy Yard, Guth wrote “#NavyYardShooting The blood is on the hands of the #NRA. Next time, let it be YOUR sons and daughters. Shame on you. May G** damn you.”
I gave you the complete quote. The murderer wasn’t an NRA member. The murderer was a government contractor who was off his meds and murdered people in a gun free zone. Consider how long and loud the media would shout if professor Guth had called for the death of Obama’s children after those deaths. We now have a standard where some lives are more equal than others… where only liberally approved lives matter.
James Pearce is an adjunct professor at Southern State Community College in Hillsboro, Ohio. Pearce wrote
Look, there’s only one solution. A bunch of us anti-gun types are going to have to arm ourselves, storm the NRA headquarters in Fairfax, VA, and make sure there are no survivors. This action might also require coordinated hits at remote sites, like Washington lobbyists. Then and only then will we see some legislative action on assault weapons. Have a nice day.
Again, I gave you the complete quote. The college said they would take no action until a federal investigation is concluded. I doubt the school would have said the same thing if the professor said to kill our recently favored and protected classes such as Muslims or immigrants… and to “make sure there are no survivors.” It is okay to threaten gun owners who are stereotyped as old white men. Southern States Community College has let its bigotry show.
The double standard extends beyond liberal white male university professors. Melinda Rhodes-DiSalvo is the interim director of the Center for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning at the University of Cincinnati. DiSalvo said, “Want to help this country? Kill the NRA.”
Really? The solution to our nation’s problems is to kill the NRA? The NRA is one of the oldest civil rights organizations in the United States. The National Rifle Association was formed in 1871, immediately after the US civil war. The NRA was teaching blacks to shoot while the Democrat inspired Klu Klux Klan was disarming and lynching them. DiSalvo was a journalism professor at Ohio Wesleyan University. DiSalvo is also a vocal supporter for Hillary Clinton.
That tells us why the media is so quiet on these stories. Ask yourself what you’d hear from the media if a prominent conservative publicly suggested bombing abortion clinics and killing Hillary Clinton. The flood of condemnation would go on for days. Welcome to the double standard practiced in academia… and by the socialist media.
This is more than a war of words directed towards political conservatives. A man named Mir Islam called police and pretended to be someone else. Islam claimed he was NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre. Islam claimed that LaPierre had killed his wife, and that LaPierre would kill police as they responded to the LaPierre home. Police in Virginia sent an armed Special Weapons and Tactics team to La Pierre’s house where LaPierre was briefly detained. Fortunately, La Pierre was not injured. Mir Islam was sentenced to two years in jail. He received a year off his sentence due to time served. I’m relieved there was finally some sort of punishment.
I’ve shown that this bigotry is not an isolated event. It goes beyond that, and is official policy for some organizations. The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence thinks civilians should be disarmed… violently if necessary. The CSGV publicly urged their supporters to call the police on anyone their supporters think might have a gun. “If you see someone carrying a firearm in public—openly or concealed—and have ANY doubts about their intent, call 911 immediately and ask police to come to the scene.”
Evidently our rights end where liberal emotions begin. That is the heart of the matter. We are not allowed free speech or freedom of action if it could possibly offend delicate Socialists sensitivities.
That isn’t free speech. That isn’t protecting our right to go peacefully about our own business without hurting someone. The moral message from socialists is that they can and should stop anything with which they disagree. We’ve seen this from the news media and from Socialist politicians. They advocate for positions they clearly don’t understand. Too often, socialist’s dogma and campaign contributions determine their positions.
Notice what this bigotry does to our freedom of action. Rather than being free to do anything that does not injure others, the new double standard is that we can’t do or say anything the Socialists have not approved… lest it offend. What offends Socialists is considered important. What offends people who love liberty is unimportant. There you have the double standard fully exposed.
That pattern started before Obama used the IRS to wage a campaign of intimidation and harassment on conservative political groups. Liberals didn’t complain then, and they don’t complain now. It is now approved behavior to silence you.
What should we do? The antidote is to speak up. Conservative commentator Dana Loesch received texts and phone calls threatening her and her family after she spoke up about armed self-defense. The caller is a fool. You can’t silence or even slow down Dana Loesch with attempted intimidation. Threats reinforce her belief that the topics of free speech and free expression are important. Dana Loesch is a brave woman and threats make her want to speak louder. Follow her example.
What did you say? I can’t hear you. It is time you got involved and spoke up.
