When a member of a minority group who is also a conservative speaks out or gains publicity, you can count on the left to attack. It is imperative for the liberal cause to maintain the support of enough minority members and get them to the polls in order to win elections.
As a result, brilliant African-American scholars such as Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams don’t fit the mold that the left promotes. There are a lot more like them, and the degree to which they speak up for their conservative beliefs is the degree to which liberals will get well-deserved heartburn.
As we are painfully aware, the gun-grabbers are working overtime right now. Tragedies have given them opportunities to press their agenda. Minorities, good liberals they are all supposed to be, are to line up on the side of the gun-grabbers. But to put it bluntly, blacks have the same rights and needs regarding self-protection as any other citizen. So the left errs when it thinks it can assume minorities will attack the Second Amendment with them.
Note this story:
A black gun owner slammed those who would want to restrict guns from law-abiding citizens during a Tuesday city council meeting on how to combat gun violence.
“You want to restrict my right to buy a firearm and protect myself from some of the very people you are talking about in here tonight,” Mark Robinson, a Greensboro, N.C., resident said. “The law-abiding citizens of this community, of other communities we are the first ones taxed and the last ones considered.”
That last quote of his is spectacular. A good conservative could run on that one and get some traction.
“I’m the majority. I’m a law-abiding citizen who has never shot anybody,” Robinson said. “Never committed a serious crime. Never committed a felony. I’ve never done anything like that. It seems like every time we have one of these shootings, nobody wants to put the blame where it goes, which is at the shooter’s feet. You want to put it at my feet. You want to turn around and restrict my rights.”
There’s really nothing more that needs to be added. This man has said it all.
