Well, now it looks like the Second Amendment is racist, too

Postby dorminWS » Mon, 09 Oct 2017 14:47:41

A local liberal, trying to fan the flames for Northam, just posted the article below on several local FaceBook pages. Judging from the comments, some people are swallowing this stink-bait, hook, line and sinker.

The revisionist line is that “southerners like James Monroe, George Mason (who owned more than 300 slaves) and the southern Christian evangelical, Patrick Henry” insisted on the 2nd Amendment to insure they could maintain "slave patrols" and thereby prop up their oppressive "police states"

The strategy is obviously that if the Second Amendment was racially motivated, activist liberal judges and politicians can ignore it.

Fake news, fake morality, and now fake history.

The article:

Gun-crazy? Me? I'd say the gun-crazy ones are the ones that don’t HAVE one.

I don't think it's a good idea to put that online. WHO KNOWS who's checking? I love big-caliber and longe-range rifles and 1911 pistols, and I've got a few.

Next Firearm:
I can always use another 1911.

How come you never hear them complaining about the racist history of gun control?

Northern States had, and still have, constitutional militias that needed to be armed also, and since they didn't have slaves...

I had dinner with a black couple, last night. Lovely people, great friends of mine (they were in my wedding). They were showing me their new pistols.

I get the distinct impression, that even if the 2nd Amendment DID have racist roots, they would not care, at all. At this point, it would be irrelevant.

So, then, my questions to the author, (using the lefty strategy) are, "Why do you want to disarm black people? Don't their lives matter? Why can't they defend themselves? Why do you hate them?" Then, I suppose, I could scream, "RACIST!!" at him.
