USA – -(Ammoland.com)- “Yet another mass shooting has devastated an American community — this time in San Bernardino, California,” the email from Moms Demand Action, a wholly-owned subsidiary Michael Bloomberg, begins. “We don't just need another moment of silence. We also need a moment of action.”
Really? What kind of action?
Are they going to be looking at how the government’s insane cultural terraforming, partly in order to ensure an overwhelming Democrat majority at the polls, is putting us all at risk, and how the assurance of “rigorous security screening,” meant to lull us all back to sleep, is a hollow fraud?
Are they going to urge us to look to the wisdom of the Founders as to what is “necessary to the security of a free State”?
Hardly. If they did that, they wouldn’t be MILMs.
So what’s the plan?
“Right before the third anniversary of the Sandy Hook shooting, supporters will gather all across the country to participate in Orange Walks to honor all of the lives lost to gun violence in America, and show just how determined we are to end it,” the email explains.
Actually, all it does is explain what they’re going to do at their stupid photo op. It doesn’t explain how doing that is going to end “gun violence,” especially since everything they’re demanding is aimed at punishing people who haven’t done anything wrong. It doesn't explain what they're prepared to do about those of us who have no intention of giving these useful idiots an inch to keep them from initiating “gun violence” like this country hasn’t seen since the 1860s.
“There's an event in Cleveland — can you join us?” they ask, giving the address along with an “RSVP” button.
And it’s not just planned for Cleveland — that just happens to be the city near where I live. They’re planning similar walks in Everytown.
No doubt the press will show up, but funny thing — there’s not a lot in the “news” announcing things at this writing. My guess is, they don’t want it to turn out like Bloomberg’s bus tour, where they kept stops secret because they didn’t want subsidized “supporters” outnumbered. Still, look for the media to give the handful of indignant zealots who do show up inordinate exposure, and to position their camera shots to make it look like the events draw widespread public participation.
“Orange is the color hunters wear to stay safe and visible in the woods,” the MILMs explain further. “It represents the value of human life, and it's become a powerful symbol of the gun violence prevention movement.”
Aside from the fact that the Second Amendment isn’t about hunting, to watch a sportsman field dress a deer would no doubt send most of these herbivores into post traumatic stress paroxysms worthy of a slap from George Patton. It’s fair to wonder if gun owners in blaze orange showed up, open carrying, of course, how welcome they’d be at the walk. It’s also fair to wonder why those who claim they’re all about “the value of human life” never want to talk about what their precious monopoly of violence historically devolves into — far too often to be a coincidence.
For “progressives,” every day is Opposite Day.
“At Orange Walks across the country, supporters like you will gather with family and friends to bundle up in as much orange as they own and walk in their town squares, schools, or houses of worship,” the MILMs conclude. “There's an Orange Walk happening in your community, and we hope we'll see you there.”
You can find one near you here if it’s been a while since you attended a freak show, or if you just miss the sound of shrieking harridans.
Did I say “conclude”? My bad. They’re not just holding a blood dance, it’s also a taxi dance, and they need you to commemorate the dead by paying Bloomberg Enterprises for the privilege. To that end, they not only solicit contributions, they also offer a complete line of clothing and accessories from Everytown’s “Wear Orange” store!
Seriously? Wear orange in response to violent Islamist terrorism? Maybe they figure a show of solidarity will clear up all the misunderstandings.
Inspired choice, ladies. And look, it works: No “gun violence”!
