It’s no coincidence that the same people who refused to protect their disabled fellow human beings in 2012, by voting “ NO” on the United Nations Convention of the Rights of Persons With Disabilities are the same people who refuse to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act, and are the exact same group of people who protect the powerful NRA and refuse to even speak about changing our violent, gun-crazed society.
Among their ranks are bigots, hypocrites, liars and greedy gun lobbyists who believe that the right to own a military style assault rifle trumps the right of a first grader to grow up.
These are the exact same people who demonize teachers (who they now want to arm), firefighters, police and all public employees, insisting that they earn too much.
These are the same people who demean the office of the President of the United States by their racist hatred of President Obama and their unified obstruction of America’s progress, including revising an amendment written by men who could never have envisioned the death toll of one AR15 .
Many of the same characters are also gun lovers who regulate the type of gun that can be used to shoot ducks, but have no such rules pertaining to the shooting of children.
The same people who believe that caring about your community is Communism, believe that the answer to gun violence is MORE gun violence.
It’s not a coincidence; it’s a value system and an ideology. It’s an ideology that, unless we stand up to it, will destroy the soul of America.
