Califonia – -(AmmoLand.com)- As they say all politics is local. A local Califonia chamber of commerce was setting up a “meet the candidates” event, there was only one problem they were not inviting any of the conservative GOP candidates to the presentation. Antonio Sabato running for CA26 and Rhonda Kennedy for State Assembly 44 were somehow excluded from the agenda.
So, when I pointed this out, gave out the name a phone number of the coordinator of the event and ran a small email campaign calling them out all hell broke loose. Yes, in the email campaign I used the very words you see above.
Initially, the left assumed I was a bot. A Russian computer avatar designed for no other reason than to frighten children and destroy democracy in America.
Then I was a shill for the GOP, part of a vast rightwing conspiracy to stalk and intimidate anyone who will not back and support Trump and his racist and homophobic, anti-freedom agenda. Somewhere in the conversation the existence of right-wing death squads even came up.
For the record, I laughingly deny any and all knowledge of right-wing death squads. It seems to me all the violence is on the left.
Lastly, I got a call for the head of the GOP for the county asking if I could pull the offensive verbiage from the message; seems the liberals hated it when their racism is pointed out to them in public, and he was getting blamed.
In talking to two members of the Chambers of Commerce, they were blunt. No way a GOP candidate could win, and unless we show allegiance to the Democrats there would be a price for them to pay. (I’m a small business owner in the City, and so I know some of the members.)
Running for the local city council are three women, while they WERE anti-gun activists who organized “Death to the NRA” protest rallies and threatened NRA members they now plan to (if elected) change the zoning laws and eliminate all gun stores in the City and ask the Sherriff to stop issuing CCWs within City limits. More than that they have promised revenge against the restaurants who hosted Friends of NRA events.
EVERYONE must pay for not staying on the plantation.
This is what America has become. If you’re the Left, your goal is not to advance the country it is to destroy your opposition and anyone who disagrees with you.
The left has isolated itself. They de-friend anyone they disagree with and only talk to those who share their opinions and beliefs. To them anyone they disagree with MUST be wrong, and a minority voice that is unenlightened and uneducated. They ARE the elite in their minds, and they act like it.
Grudgingly the Chamber has decided to let the conservative candidates attend.
It is the end of American democracy when:
- When you have a President, who promotes FBI agents and DOJ official based on their loyalty to the Democrat Party.
- When you have political parties offer almost $1 million for the wife of an FBI agent to run for Congress, while that agent is investigating your candidate.
- When promoting your party takes precedence over doing right by people.
It is the same as we see here in a local setting as in Washington. Ultimately this is what got Donald Trump elected, and the drive to destroy him is to keep power in the hands of the liberal elite.
There are 120,000,000 gun owners in the US. WE ARE THE LARGEST VOTING BLOCK IN THE COUNTRY. Yet we are treated like crap by the left. They use threats and intimidation to cow good people; to silence anyone who disagrees. Like the local chamber, support the democrat or pay a price. With 15,000 illegal aliens voting in CA26 every year nothing is ever supposed to change, the left see themselves as having a monolithic hold on power.
Rally to our cause. It is more than just the defense of the 2nd; it is the defense of our Republic.
Let me be blunt. All politics is local. With the elections so close find a local candidate YOU can support. I don’t care who they are but who you can vote for. Then donate some time.
Make a difference; we are not just the militia, we are the grassroots that make a republic survive. God bless you all, and yes you make a difference but most of all VOTE Tuesday, November 6, 2018
