ACLU: 2nd Amendment Racist, Gun Rights Used to ‘Inflame White Racial Anxiety’

Published

on

ACLU

This week the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) did what liberals do best: demand something is ‘racist’ to get people to blindly be against it. The ACLU tweeted their own article titled ‘Do Black Americans Have the Right to Bear Arms?’ with the caption, “Racism is foundational to the Second Amendment and its inclusion in the Bill of Rights.”

Foundational to the Second Amendment? The ACLU claims “Anti-Blackness determined the inclusion of the Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights, and has informed the unequal and racist application of gun laws.”

Gun laws are racist, too? Or just the application of them? So much racism, it’s hard to keep up. “The vigilantism of widespread gun ownership puts Black Americans in an especially vulnerable position given the brutality and human cost of discriminatory policing” writes the ACLU.

The article also claims that “throughout the history of this country, the rhetoric of gun rights has been selectively manipulated and utilized to inflame white racial anxiety, and to frame Blackness as an inherent threat.”

Founder of Black Guns Matter Maj Toure told the Daily Caller News Foundation such rhetoric is solely a tactic to “brainwash black people into believing that having the means to defend themselves is nefarious.” Toure said “I think gun control is racist, not the Second Amendment.”

The “Second Amendment is designed to put the government on watch” , added Toure. “The First Amendment says you can say what you want, and the Second Amendment says you can defend what the f**k you just said. I don’t think ‘anti-blackness’ played a part in the framing,”

The Second Amendment is particularly personal to Toure. “I had to use a firearm to defend myself because I have seen the other side most people won’t. I don’t see the Second Amendment as racist. I was given that right by God and I exercised that right. The Second Amendment gave me that right as well. I had that right to defend myself. Without the Second Amendment, without God, my son and I would not be here today. That isn’t ‘anti-blackness.”

    At the local gun store / firing range I go to, I would say 50% of the clientele base is black. Women, men of all colors and background go to buy, work, and shoot at this range. Don’t know what planets these idiots live on, but certainly they have no clue about legal personal firearms.

    Guns don’t ask their handler what race is he/she. Most of gun assaults and homicides I watch on TV are in the hands of born criminals, no matter their race. Where did they got their arms?, 99% of the time was an illegal transaction. If the guns are taken away from legal and authorized owners, what procedure is going to be used for illegal owners?

    2nd amendment right are racist? To Blacks, everything is racist including the constitution and the bill of rights. Those ghetto vermin animals would like nothing better than to see ‘white guys’ surrender their guns so Blacks could rob them easier. Their criminals, born and raised. For me, I’m locked and loaded. Is the ‘castle doctrine’ racist? Step onto my property with intent to harm and find out.

    there is no way that idiot Biden compares to our great President Trump. Everything President Trump did was for America and Americans everything Biden does is against Americans and America he is destroying America. Something has to be done soon to stop this radical liberal maniac

    Its an all out assault to disarm the citizens (especially black citizens) and weaken the Constitution. The liberal leftist socialist have now infiltrated the aclu.
    In 250 years the only party that has been consistently against blacks and minorities has been the democrats. With their history with laws, wars, and promises against blacks they still havent done anything for blacks but deliver misery. They can say they switched places with Republicans, but they can’t act it. Keep believing, if it was up to them, blacks would still be slaves. Don’t give up what protects you, protect the 2nd Amendment

Trump Says Reports On A Conflict With DeSantis Are ‘Fake News’

Published

on

Ron DeSantis

During a Fox News interview on Thursday, former President Donald Trump shot down recent reports claiming that there were rising tensions between the former president and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, saying it was “fake news” and that DeSantis has “done a really terrific job in Florida.”

Trump’s comments came in response to an article from The New York Times claiming that Trump had a “long-stewing resentment” toward DeSantis.

“For months, former President Donald J. Trump has been grumbling quietly to friends and visitors to his Palm Beach mansion about a rival Republican power center in another Florida mansion, some 400 miles to the north,” The New York Times wrote. “Gov. Ron DeSantis, a man Mr. Trump believes he put on the map, has been acting far less like an acolyte and more like a future competitor, Mr. Trump complains. With his stock rising fast in the party, the governor has conspicuously refrained from saying he would stand aside if Mr. Trump runs for the Republican nomination for president in 2024.”

Hannity said that he was recently told that DeSantis does not think there has been “any conflict or bickering” between the two and that the report was “total BS” from the mainstream media.

“Is he right?” Hannity asked.

“Well, he is right,” Trump responded. “I get along great with Ron. Ron was very good on the Mueller hoax. He was right up front along with Jim Jordan, and all of the rest of them, they were fantastic. The Republicans really stuck together. And it was a great thing. And Ron was one of them. And Ron wanted to run and I endorsed him. And that helped him greatly.”

“And he went on and he’s done a really terrific job in Florida, and I think you know, Ron has been very good,” Trump continued. “He’s been a friend of mine for a long time. It’s totally fake news. I think Ron said last week, he said it very publicly, he says the press is never going to get in the middle of my friendship with Donald Trump, we’re not going to do that stuff. And he said it very strongly, I thought it was very interesting, actually. And very nice. But he said that, and I agree with him on that 100%. No, I have a very good relationship with Ron and intend to have it for a long time.”

Youngkin Replaces State’s Department of Equity and Inclusion with Anti-CRT Leaders

Move over ‘Critical Race Theory’ there’s a new Sheriff in town

Move over ‘Critical Race Theory’ there’s a new Sheriff in town. Newly elected Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin just ripped the roof off of Virginia’s “woke” elite. Youngkin completely gutted the employees of the state’s Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) and then rebuilt it, filling the positions with reasonable individuals.

Christopher Rufo tweeted, “Glenn Youngkin has asked all of the state’s DEI employees to resign and tapped anti-critical race theory leader Angela Sailor to lead the department. In her first move, Sailor eliminated the word ‘equity’ and replaced it with ‘opportunity.”

Youngkin asked all of the state’s DEI employees to resign, then put Sailor in charge to lead the department. Sailor is a former policy expert at The Heritage Foundation;. Having replaced the word ‘equity’ for ‘opportunity’ at the department, Sailor is now formally the DOI “Director of Diversity, Opportunity and Inclusion.”

Citizen Free Press reports “Youngkin also issued an executive order to refocus the DEI office, tasking Sailor and her staff to work on economic opportunity, cooperation among religious groups, promoting ‘free speech and civil discourse’ at colleges and universities, and ensuring that Virginia’s history curriculum is ‘honest, objective, and complete.”

Rufo’s tweet included a link to an article by the Richmond Times-Dispatch which reported “Former Gov. Ralph Northam created the state’s Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in 2019 in the aftermath of the blackface scandal that nearly ended his term. The office has been unstaffed since its former chief and her four staffers, who served at the will of the governor, were not asked to stay in their jobs.”

Richmond Times-Dispatch reports:

Youngkin’s first executive order signed Saturday seeks to ban “inherently divisive” concepts from Virginia classrooms.

In recent blog posts for The Heritage Foundation, Sailor said that lessons arguing that “America is systemically racist,” are “the textbook definition of racism.”

“No one would argue that children shouldn’t be thoroughly taught about the evils of racism, slavery, and segregation that happened in this country,” she wrote in July in a piece titled, “Schools Hiding Behind Diversity and Inclusion Rhetoric to Spew Critical Race Theory Vile.”

“But [critical race theory] ignores the hundreds of thousands of lives that were sacrificed during the Civil War to end slavery, the long struggle of the civil rights movement to end segregation and win equality, and the reality that the nation has made great progress.”
