Extra Protection Request for ‘Squad’ another Example of Democrat Double Standards

Proud of his “F” grade from NRA while demanding taxpayer-funded police protection. Somebody ought to tell PETA about the bearskin on the gun-grabbing Fudd's office wall. (Rep. Bennie G. Thompson / Twitter)

U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie G. Thompson, D-Miss., was seeking extra protection for members of Congress on Monday after President Trump’s tweets and remarks about the progressive ‘squad,’” Fox News reported Monday. “In the letter for House Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving and Senate Sergeant at Arms Michael Stenger, Thompson argued that the Capitol Police Board should meet to ‘analyze the current threat environment and set thresholds for enhanced safety of Members.’”

With that one action, Thompson advanced the fake meme that Americans who voted for the president based on his campaign promises are dangerous.  Disregard that the armed “anarchist” lunatic who attacked the Tacoma ICE facility was a creature of the left. Ditto for the hate-filled piece of collectivist crap who shot up Republicans at the ball field.

With the Democrat-dominated House now pushing for a resolution to condemn the president’s “racist” comments, the other half of the smear job is complete, as so tellingly “articulated” by The Daily Beast:

“Trump Is a Racist. If You Still Support Him, So Are You.”

The president is an avatar for those who believe in what he pledged (even though delivery has been less than stellar). The destruction his enemies wish on him they wish on his supporters.

This is a continuation of the old SPLC “hate” smear, one used to great effect by those who find political advantage in chilling alternative thought by making those who would express it fear being tarred as racists and as “Nazis.” And as the calculated cultural Marxist saying goes, “Free speech isn’t hate speech.”

It’s no surprise that gutless “moderate” Republicans like Joni Ernst feel compelled to make sure everyone knows how much they agree with racism charges – like that will stop the Democrats from lumping her in with the “haters” the first chance they get.

The president actually leveled his criticism at:

“Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how…”

True, Ilhan Omar was born in Somalia and Rashida Tlaib was born in Detroit, the daughter of Palestinian immigrants. Other members of the so-called “Squad” were born here, but Trump never named names, so the manufactured Democrat and media presumption that he ignorantly meant all of them is just that. It’s “fake news” to spread the fake meme that he was telling “brown” and “black” women to get out of our “white” country.

If the president’s message is aimed at any color, it’s the Reds. These are avowed “socialists” whose interests are to culturally and economically terraform America as they systematically attempt to take over and control the very free institutions that made this a country people from more repressive lands want to flee to. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff admitted as much when he proclaimed the so-called Green New Deal “wasn’t originally a climate thing at all … we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.”

The failed ideology “The Squad” would impose on the Republic is a foreign one, and a big part of that would have to be enforced through citizen disarmament. You’d think someone who walked the talk would grasp that there is no more egalitarian power-sharing arrangement then the right of the people to keep and bear arms, but then again, we’re dealing with political frauds whose only real interest is unchallenged control. And that makes Bennie Thompson’s call for more police protection for his fellow gun-grabbers all the more hypocritical.

“As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States,” Ilhan Omar tweeted to Donald Trump. It’s significant that no Democrat called her on that, because the oath they swear – and it says it right on the House website – is to the Constitution. Hers is a much greater political gaffe than Trump’s.

If she and they had any intention of honoring that oath, they’d stop trying to tear down the Second Amendment while providing armed security for themselves at taxpayer expense. And with all this talk of Americans who believe in nation and heritage being “white nationalists,” racists and haters, it’s not we Constitutionalists trying to keep peaceable women, people of color and people of alternate sexual identities unarmed, defenseless and reliant on police “protection” that can’t possibly arrive in time.

It’s them.

I'm reminded of a young lady I met when covering the Kent State open carry walk last year, an immigrant from Ghana who is now a proud American and a firm defender of the right to keep and bear arms. One “tolerant” leftist, an older African-American woman, enraged that a person who was born into a “monopoly of violence” did not share in her demands for disarmament, furiously dismissed her as a “house n*****.”

There’s an old saying from the Sixties that still rings true for “refugees” who would foolishly or maliciously erode the very unique protections of individuals that differentiated the U.S. from the rest of the world and made it the attraction that it is: “America, love it or leave it.”

Can there be anything more self-defeating than fleeing tyranny and crippling poverty and then helping subvert the political and economic system that made prosperity possible?

There’s another older saying that those who choose to immigrate here would do well to consider, this one attributed to Saint Ambrose:

“When in Rome, do as the Romans do.”

Don’t come here uninvited, especially those of you with your hands out, demand we adopt your ways, and then scream “Racist!” when some of us balk. Or do, and don’t be surprised when some of us refuse to surrender our arms and the country we built to foreign ways that are inimical to our freedom.

    There are plenty of “white” people especially in Hollywood that hate this country that their removing themselves would be an improvement. Alex Baldwin has said if Bush and Trump were elected he would leave the county. Please make good on your promise. Senator McCarthy was right but was over reaching.

    There is no reason for special concern for the armed guarding of four newly selected members of the elected elite. The elected elite has long been arm guarding themselves against what they consider to be the over armed masses. Masses that are becoming various prohibited person underclasses.
    We, has pro-arm rights or not citizens are allowing this. If all of us, not yet prohibited, voted against the democrats would not alter the agendas of the elected elite. As things are going some will have the privilege to vote as forced.

    David, your last paragraph says it all and I have been saying this for decades. There is no secret why commiefornia and Hi. are so liberal for that reason. Very good article. Pelose handed the democrat house to them yesterday in her rant about Trump, which is not legal to do, but she got away with it. She called them “sisters in congress”. Does she think this is a sorority or a high school club? She is old beyond her age and needs rooted out but just like granny Ginsburg, she will stay around until someone can’t stand the smell… Read more »

    Probably not his intent, but Trump’s remarks caused Nancy Pelosi to disclose the fact of her fake feud with the socialist extremist in the House. I hope the RNC has taken note. They’ve been, I imagine, sitting around laughing about how the Democrats are falling apart, self destructing. Here is the truth. They’re all together in the master socialist Communist plan.

    Don’t you think instead of “the squad” they should be referred to as the “Gang of Four?” That’s in reference to the Chinese Communist Gang of Four…not the 1970’s punk rock group.

    Other people’s opinion of me is of absolutely no consequence. They may call me anything they wish to call me… but their “say so” alone is worthless. And my self-esteem/dignity can easily weather the stupidity of ignorant liberal asses who are in dire need of immediate psychiatric therapy. My parents taught me to evaluate others in exactly one – and only one – manner. Nothing about anyone’s physical traits (hair color, skin color, eye color, height, weight, or shoe size) means anything. The only salient point, the only important issue, is a person’s character (or in the case of liberals,… Read more »

    Bennie should give them all the security that he’s willing to pay for out of his own pocket or they can pay for their own security. Better yet they should be prepared to protect themselves and not rely on taxpayers to provide for them.

    @GO, They are typical of their movement. They can do nothing or pay for anything, themselves. They just expend words and the government is supposed to do all of their bidding. Thus it will be when the SHTF, they will use the government to do their bidding. That is why it is so important that we win the primary and general elections, and not lose our cool.

    they should READ that pesky Second Article of Ammendment which clearly places the responsibility of “the security of a free state” (society, not a government entity at all) rests upon their own shoulders as members of this society. And THAT is precisely WHY those wise ones who built our COnstitution declared that the RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE to keep and bear arms shall NOT BE INFRINGED.. by anyone, or anything, at any time, for any reason. Grow up and take responsibility for your own situations, you slimy congresscritters who blame everything wrong on someone else but continue to make things… Read more »

    I don’t care what opinion these people would have of me. If they think I am a racist because I hold certain values or agree with certain people (which have nothing to do with race), then so be it. I know the truth about myself others like me and I am not afraid of being called a racist because I know I am not. We are good, giving, and caring people, and I would wager we are some of the most inclusive people you could find. I cannot be shamed or insulted or intimidated by them because I grant them… Read more »

    Like all Socialists, they want gun control for you, but armed guards for themselves.

    They have all condemned the President and called him a racist from the floor of the Congress, which is in itself a flagrant violation of House rules. Pelosi just harumphed at that. (Rules are always for other people with them).

    I don’t think they will stop until they tear down the govt of the US, which will naturally have some surprising backlash for them.

    These democrat progressive socialists have tried everything they can think of to get rid of President Trump and he is still standing as strong as ever. They know he is probably going to get re-elected, too. They are so desperate, now they are trying to start a race war to help them tear down the USA they hate so much. These are very dangerous and violent people, so be prepared if this thing blows up.

    @Alan in NH, They can not start a lawn mower, much less a civil war. All they can do is talk. If they can talk themselves into power, they will command the government, and its resources, to do their bidding. Then we may have war.
    That is why it is so important to win the primary and general elections. Pick a not-corrupted-yet primary candidate. Throw a street party or barbecue for them. Invite voters and donors. The sharia law and socialist crowd can not compete with fun.

    NH is behind enemy lines. we used to be one of the most republican states in the country. So many people have moved here from Mass, NY, Conn, RI, Del, they wanted to get away from the rat race down there and have taken over almost our entire NH state government except the Governorship. They have passed all kinds of new gun control laws here this year only to be vetoed by Governor Sununu thank goodness. Don’t think it can’t happen where you live. Live Free or Die

    Nah don’t take down the high standards of the noble women of the tribes who were here before we came. Those women bore the children raised them up to be contributing members of their societies, kept the homes well, did much of the work to assure the food they had was plenty and good and wholesome, taught the young to value society and tradition, be hard workers, do their part for the good of the tribe and nation.
