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

DeSantis Directs Secretary Of State To Investigate Facebook For Election Interference

Published

on

Facebook

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) has directed Florida Secretary of State Laurel M. Lee to investigate Facebook for alleged election interference after recent reports suggesting that Facebook impacted the results of state and local elections.

“I hereby direct that your office immediately investigate this alleged election interference caused by Facebook through its whitelisting program – and any other previously undisclosed program within Facebook – in order to determine whether any violations of Florida’s election laws took place,” DeSantis said in a letter to Lee. “Your office should use all legal means to uncover any such violations, including but not limited to, issuing subpoenas, conducting witness interviews, reviewing all available information and consulting with law enforcement.”

“The thought of technology companies clandestinely manipulating elections is an affront to the basic principles of our republic,” DeSantis added. “Floridians deserve to have faith that their elections are fair and free from intrusion by Big Tech monopolies like Facebook.”

DeSantis cited a recent report from the Wall Street Journal, which found that Facebook has a secret list of users that are not subject to Facebook’s content posting rules.

“According to a review of internal Facebook documents conducted by the Wall Street Journal, Facebook has created a shadow list of certain users who are immune from Facebook’s enforcement actions on posting content,” DeSantis wrote. “These elites – selected by Facebook behind closed doors – are able to post material without being subject to the opaque review process that normal users endure. This “whitelist” effectively creates two classes of speakers on Facebook’s platform: those who are privileged and those who are not.”

According to the Wall Street Journal report, “While the program included most government officials, it didn’t include all candidates for public office, at times effectively granting incumbents in elections an advantage over challengers. The discrepancy was most prevalent in state and local races, the documents show, and employees worried Facebook could be subject to accusations of favoritism.”

DeSantis’ office said in a press release, “If the Wall Street Journal report is accurate, Facebook has created a privileged class of speakers and has empowered them to manipulate our elections with impunity. Even more disturbing, these elite users on Facebook’s ‘whitelist’ were allegedly selected by the tech giant behind closed doors. The selection process, scope, and real-world influence of the whitelist is concealed from the public and known only to Facebook. If true, this process may have provided a benefit to incumbent elected politicians over their challengers in state and local elections.”

BLM Leader Vows to ‘Abolish’ NYC Mayor De Blasio’s Vax Passports

Says ‘Free Pass to Racism’,  ‘Modern-Day Freedom Papers’

Published

Chivona Newsome

New York Mayor Bill De Blasio’s vaccine mandates and consequential vaccine passports necessary to enter most bars and restaurants in the city are being dubbed racist by a Black Lives Matter leader.

Chivona Newsome co-founded the Greater New York Chapter of BLM and also ran as a congressional candidate in 2020 for New York’s 15th district sent a statement to Fox News explaining the claims of racism.

“Although Mayor Bill De Blasio ran on progressives values, nothing in his tenure will attest to his campaign promises,” Newsome stated. “The September 13th vaccine mandate is racist and specifically targets Black New Yorkers. The vaccination passports are modern-day Freedom Papers, which limit the free will of Black people.”

De Blasio’s mandates went into effect September 13, ordering indoor establishments making patrons show proof of vaccination before entering. Businesses can face fines up to $5,000 for not complying. On September 20, the Mayor’s office announced it had already issued 3,200 warnings to businesses in the first week.

Newsome continued, “The vaccination mandates infringe upon the civil liberties of the Black community…It’s more than where we can dine or enjoy entertainment, it will result in loss of income. As of Monday, September 27, Black health care workers and educators will lose their jobs.”

Newsome’s concerns for minorities and repercussions such as losing jobs is the same reasoning hundreds of groups and unions across the country have stood up against Biden’s vaccine mandate. Postal workers, Police unions, Nurse Unions and Hospital administrators are all amongst those expressing outrage.

Newsome says De Blasio’s actions are a direct attack on black Americans, and he “chose to disenfranchise and force the very people who elected him into poverty and second-class citizenship.”

She explained that de Blasio is, “fully aware of the hesitancy and distrust people of African descent have about vaccination and their interactions with government and law enforcement.” Newsome concluded, “the vaccination passport will not be a free pass to racism. Our organization pledges to demonstrate until the vaccine mandate is abolished.”
