Mike Bloomberg, Liberal Fascist (Part Two)

What’s wrong with this picture? Besides everything. Let’s go over the four basic rules of gun safety:

  1. The gun is always loaded.
  2. Never point a gun at anything you’re not prepared to kill.
  3. Keep your finger off the trigger until you’re ready to fire.
  4. Always be sure of your target and know what’s behind it.

Anyone who follows these four simple but very important rules is highly unlikely ever to have an accidental discharge of a firearm or, worse, an accidental shooting of another person. And yet this is what New York City’s nasty little fascist of a mayor, Mike Bloomberg, and his rogue’s gallery of Mayors Against Illegal Guns are currently advertising as normal gun-handling behavior.

This life-threatening nonsense has been widely pilloried in the blogosphere, by the estimable Emily Miller among others:

Mike Bloomberg is spending $12 million on attack ads designed to force U.S. senators to vote for national gun control laws that will supposedly save lives. However, the New York mayor’s commercials running in 13 states over the next two weeks could cause injury or death by showcasing irresponsible handling of a firearm.

Mr. Bloomberg’s organization, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, produced two ads featuring a man holding a shotgun, wearing plaid flannel with a camouflage cap and sitting on the tailgate of a pickup truck. While a child swings on a tire in the background, the man says, “I support comprehensive background checks so criminals and the dangerously mentally ill can’t buy guns.”

To which I’d like to add: take a look at the suspiciously well-manicured, bearded intensity of the man in the video and tell me you want this guy anywhere near your children, or even your senators:

Note also that Bloomberg and his fellow busybodies are attempting to disguise their fascism — “universal background checks,” a euphemism for a centralized information bank that would prevent parents from handing down weapons to their children without first going through the Washington bureaucracy — as “protection” for hunters. “Vote to protect gun rights” — yeah, right. The Leftist genius for disguising its true intentions has never been more brazen.

But let’s leave aside for the moment that the Second Amendment has little or nothing to do with hunting. The last thing the Leftists of the criminal organization masquerading as a political party and its hypocritical offshoot, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, want you to think about is your own personal safety, whether from street criminals or tyrannical government. (You can read all about a counter-organization, Gun Owners Against Illegal Mayors, here.)

As these two videos make clear. They depict a “progressive’s” kindly fantasy of yeoman rural America, right down to the flannel shirt, the camo cap, and the pickup truck, as if to say “we’re one of you” — but only an urban liberal would fall for it. No shotgun owner in his right mind would have his gun locked and loaded, with his finger on the trigger, while his kids played in the background. Because (see Rule No. 1, above) even when the gun is not loaded, The Gun Is Always Loaded.

As many have said, if the right to self defense is unwarranted then Obama, Bloomberg and other politicians advocating gun control can prove it by having their bodyguards go unarmed.

"a centralized information bank that would prevent parents from handing down weapons to their children without first going through the Washington bureaucracy"

In the only bill put forward on this idea, lending your life-long friend your rifle while the two of you are plinking on your back-40 would be a felony with a 5-year prison sentence.

The goal is to create a whole class of felons from people guilty of a purely harmless act.

The issue is never the issue.

But try telling that to supporters of Gay Marriage down in Simon's thread.

Here is the rule of thumb. Liberals want guns - just you can't have one. Liberals do not want America without guns. Liberals want an America where the people who now have guns don't have them anymore.

Remember its not the guns that Liberals don't want, its the people the Liberals don't want. And they certainly don't want them to have guns.

Bloomberg, IMHO, is a power mad control freak in addiiton to being afflicted with little man's over-compensation syndrome.

The left wants every gun in America in gubmint hands, pure & simple.

First step toward a totalitarian form of government is the disarming of the public. Along with that first step is the telling of lies to convince the people to willingly give up their right to bear arms against an overbearing govt. And these very things are happening right now.

Congratul;ations! You said the Secret Word: Totalitarianism. And that is why the article's author is 100% wrong to use the word "fascist" in describing Bloomberg. Rightists are united in being ruthless defenders of existing society. They support religion, culture, language, and all societal foundations against those -- Leftists -- who exist to destroy existing society. Now, nobody in his right mind can believe for a seciond that Bloomberg has anything but hatred for American society. He lives in an anti-American enclave (NYC) and probably has no normal ethnic-American friends. Remember the NYC writer who couldn't understand how Nixon could've won in 1972, because she didn't know one person who voted GOP? She didn't live in America. Now Rightists regimes tend towards authoritarinaism, because they enforce existing societal norms. Leftist tend towards totalitarianism because their goal is to destroy all norms, religion, custom, and history and this requires attention to every single act anyone could perform, to education, to religion (re-defining marriage), to re-writing history, pop culture, mass media, and as stated, pretty much everything anybody does or thinks. Leftists politicize everything (look around the US today) while Rightists destroy politics. The difference between Left and Right is the difference between the USSR and Franco's Spain. No normal person has to take more than a second to make this choice. If you can't decide which is preferable, you're probably a Leftist (i.e., an abnormal person).

We should keep in mind that the Obamas, Bloombergs, Reeds, and Pelosis and their ilk do not want the average man and woman to have the means to defend their rights and freedoms from an overbearing and corrupt government, because these officials are the keepers of the flame for benevolent government. Lincoln's passionate phrases have now been turned on their heads so that now we have 'government of the elites, for the elites, and by the elites.' The people be damned.

Bloomberg's New York City is the local extension of Obama's federal government, for the people know not what is in their self interest. Designate a new law or rule, but do not worry if it's constitutional or not, or whether it serves individual freedom or not. Just pass it, enforce it, and see what happens. If the law fails muster, try again, for unlike the government's opponents, the 'authorities' have the state or city or federal treasury to back their schemes.

The issue is not about marriage it is about I want special rights because of my sexual behavior choice. I want no one to be able to tell me that I can not do what I want. Most do not get married and do not stay together for long especially the men. The advocates who are the most extreme have flat out said they want to destroy marriage completely. They will brook no dissent every one regardless of their religious beliefs except Musilms of course must bow to their wishes. Fascist have always been leftist or liberals because they must have total control.
