Ron Paul: You Know, The Left’s Push For Gun Control Is Pretty Racist

I’ll admit, I’m not a big fan of Ron Paul. On a lot of things, he’s a Libertarian crank, and hanging with 9/11 Truthers certainly doesn’t help. Though, really, it was the hardcore Ron Paul supporters in all their wackiness that turned a lot of people, including myself, off from Ron. Regardless, he makes a lot of sense here

Progressives Should Defend Gun Rights

Last week’s shooting at YouTube’s California headquarters is certain to add momentum to the push for more gun control. Even before the shooting, YouTube was working to undermine gun rights by banning videos promoting firearms, including videos teaching safe gun usage. (snip)

The Mulford Act is hardly the only example of a gun control law motivated at least in part by racial animus. As Tiffany Ware of the Brown Girls Project, an initiative that teaches African-American women responsible firearms ownership and usage, says, “Throughout much of American history gun control was a method for keeping blacks and Hispanics, ‘in their place.’” One of the earliest examples of gun control was laws prohibiting slaves from owning guns. After slavery was ended, Jim Crow laws denied African-Americans respect for their Second Amendment rights.

While the modern gun control movement is not explicitly racist, it is still likely that new gun control laws will disproportionately harm African-Americans and other minorities. Concerns about this are increased by cases like that of 32-year-old Philando Castile. A police officer who had stopped Castile’s car shot Castile after Castile told the officer he had a firearm in his car.

Those behind the new gun control push ignore how gun control has been used against African-Americans in the past and how new gun control laws will disproportionately harm racial minorities. This may seem ironic since many gun control supporters are progressives or cultural Marxists who specialize in finding racism in every aspect of American politics and culture. However, considering that may other policies favored by progressives — such as minimum wage laws that limit job opportunities and occupational licensing that makes it impossible for many to start their own businesses — negatively impact minorities and lower-income Americans, perhaps progressive support for gun control is not so ironic.

Blacks are a voting block to the Democrats, nothing more, nothing less, who will simply offer them free stuff to vote D again. It hasn’t seemed to matter that Democrat policies tend to hurt Blacks more than help, and continuously make Blacks more dependent on Government. Sadly, too many Blacks just don’t get it, and will blindly continue to vote against their best interests.

And they are the ones who need more access to firearms, at least the law abiding ones. You’ve seen the stats: roughly 50% of all murders are committed by African Americans, and well over 90% of all Blacks shot were shot by another Black. Now, imagine that the non-criminal elements stuck in Democratic Party created slums and urban areas, we’ll just call the Dem Plantations, were easily able to legally purchase a firearm, receive training, and be allowed to carry it both openly and concealed: what would happen to the crime rate when the criminal elements realized they could no longer take advantage? What you might see is a brief uptick of shootings, as armed law abiding citizens who just want to be safe defend themselves. Then, this would go down, as the criminals started keeping more to themselves.

History, including American history, shows that the right to keep and bear arms can be especially valuable to racial and other minorities. Therefore, progressives who are sincerely concerned about protecting minorities from oppressive government should join libertarians and constitutional conservatives in defending the Second Amendment.

They won’t. Because Progressives/Marxists/etc think Government Is Good (for Other People). And they do not seem to actually like Black people that much. Their only value seems to be as a voting block and a means to accuse others of racism.

    According to TEACH…

    Blacks are a voting block (sic) to the Democrats, nothing more, nothing less, who will simply offer them free stuff to vote D again.

    Typical right-wing racism. “Black Americans are not smart enough to realize that Dems use them.”

    Like all of us, Black Americans understand the risk from the right-wing.

      Not all black people are as nignorant as the nignorant angry little black fella.

    • formwiz says:

      How else do we explain the black murder rates in Baltimore, Detroit, Chiraq, and Philly?

      PS How else do we explain Jeffery continually making excuses for the Left?

    • Jl says:

      Typical left-wing racism-“black Americans are not smart enough to obtain voter ID”.

      • Jeffery says:

        I actually recognize my white privilege. Cons deny it.

        And it’s a fact that requiring voter IDs suppresses the vote, which is the goal of the Cons.

        • drowningpuppies says:

          You have no “imagined” privilege.

          Nignorance, yes.

        • o0Nighthawk0o says:

          Funny that one of the main reasons SCOTUS upheld Indiana’s voter ID law was because it was shown that after the law went into effect, minority voting increased. So stop with the “voter ID suppresses the vote” lie.

        • Hoss says:

          Data absolutely contradicts your talking-points.

    • That’s cute how you turn in around, Jeff. You need to put away your privilege and realize it is contributing to racist attitudes against blacks.

    • Hoss says:

      About 10-15% of black folks do. Funny how that monolithic voting hasn’t done shit to improve their lives. The only risk is from the democrat plantation masters who call someone an Uncle Tom or Aunt Jemima when they do escape.

  2. Jl says:

    White privilege is simply white accomplishments. And yes, voter ID suppresses illegal voters, as it’s supposed to do. Liberals of course don’t like that

    • Jeffery says:

      Spoken like a white nationalist. “You” deserve your advantage.

      Any policy that makes it more difficult to vote reduces the vote. And often to favor one party over the other.

      For example, if all polls were located only within cities of 100,000 or more and not in rural areas, Cons would squeal.

  3. Jl says:

    “How do we explain the murder rate in….”. That’s because they’re democratic run cesspools, usually with tight gun control laws. Or, global warming is causing the high rate of blacks killing blacks.

  4. Jl says:

    “it reduces the vote”. Yes, it reduces the illegal votes. Mission accomplished
