Apparently liberal nut birds (are there any other kind) who are unwilling to label actual terrorist organizations accurately and even go so far as to categorize terrorist attacks as “workplace violence” so as not to offend the Religion of Peace have no problem launching such inflammatory labels on the National Rifle Association. Of course it makes sense to the perfectly stable and patriotic mind of New York Daly Daily News writer, Linda Stasi. Stable and patriotic to anyone who hates the Constitution and basic logic.
Ms. Stasi claims that, “One terrorist group [the NRA, she later writes] is responsible for more civilian deaths since December 2012 (the Sandy Hook massacre) than Al Qaeda, Boko Haram, Hamas and the Taliban. Yet it is the only nearly-state sponsored terrorist group that is not listed by the U.S. State Department as such.”
She then goes on to show of her expertise in alternate math theories by evidentially making up statistics to “prove” how evil the NRA is compared to actual terrorist groups. She insisted that 87,423 American died in gun violence between 2012-2015. Ms. Stasi was in no way bothered that the FBI has not released that data for 2014 and 2015. No! This cause is too great to be thrown off by such useless things as facts! The important thing is that she wants it to be true. That way the NRA, and by extension gun advocates, can be properly classified as terrorists.
So much for the liberal agenda of eliminating judgmental labels on people.
This line of attack will come as no surprise to traditional, Constitution-defending, Americans (also known as “Americans”). The left-wing jihadists think they’re so close to their Marxist Utopia they can all but smell it. The only thing standing in their way are pesky things like the Bill of Rights and the fundamental conviction that self-determination, government restricted to how it was intentionally defined and the right –not privilege- to defend yourself. But, Ms. Stasi’s particular form of insanity betrays more than the demonic lust for that self-enslavement. By throwing around terms like “terrorist” to describe something that clearly isn’t she is following the strategy outlined by President Obama his statement after the UCC shooting:
- Don’t address the actual motive of the murderer when you can instead use the ordeal to attach scare-words like “terrorist” to completely unrelated entities you don’t like and put fear and confusion into the situation.
- Continued intentional misuse of such terms will water them down for readers who will then feel less threatened and more accommodating when the actual terrorist culture becomes official in the States.
- Imply that the national question is “Why must the 2nd Amendment be more important than people’s safety?” so you can force gun advocates to sound like they don’t care about people or safety all that much.
The only response Americans who love this country as it was created should offer to Linda Stasi is a one-way ticket to Iran so she can enjoy a real State-sponsored terrorist. She might think again about the merits of having a gun, then.
