Once again we have a glaring example of progressive propaganda spun as entertainment and a stunning example of outright hypocrisy …
Hawaii Five-0 Season 7 Episode 5 -- Ke Ku 'Ana (The Stand)
When a cache of guns is stolen from a gun range, Five-0 discovers the culprit is intent on making a dramatic statement on gun violence.
Let’s review …
The goal of the progressive socialist democrats is world domination under a unified progressive command and control structure that is based on centralized government control over both labor and the means of production. There are no fundamental God-given freedoms and everything becomes a privilege of the state. The Constitution which protects us from a tyrannical government is of little concern to the progressives, as is the rule of law and civil society. These are the people who believe the end justifies the means, fair or foul. These are also the people who put forth diversity, multiculturalism, moral equivalency, and political correctness as their weapons to slowly deny you your God-given rights and to subvert the Constitution and our national sovereignty. Unfortunately, the mainstream media, which is guaranteed constitutional protection, has become a propaganda tool of the progressives and can no longer be counted on to tell the truth about government tyranny and continuing corruption.
Truth be told, the entertainment industry, much of which is owned by the corporate giants who have large investments in the mainstream media, is also becoming more of a propaganda tool than one of simple entertainment. If the truth were told, one would find that disarming millions of law-abiding citizens are officially designating them as victims is not only immoral and un-American, it is also the beginning of the creation of a large victim pool that would “demand” a stronger government for protection. Even though one knows intuitively that law enforcement can never be where they are needed, when they are needed. Additionally, a disproportionate amount of gun-violence today comes from the minorities that are a large part of the core constituency; hence never called out for their actions. We have come to a point where more people are being killed in the progressive-governed inner cites than in a major war. Why? Because the Obama Administration refuses to identify those that perpetrate gun violence much in the same fashion they refuse to condemn radical Islam.
Deliberately deceptive, demonizing, and dishonest …
Chin: This is what our perp was after-- Johnny K's secret stash. A small arsenal of very expensive weapons, many of which are illegal to possess in the state of Hawaii. So this bird jacks a bulldozer from a construction site, and he tricks it out into some kind of bullet-proof battering ram, knocks down the wall of the place, during business hours, when he's pretty sure the vault's gonna be open. Right. Then employees and customers scatter. Our guy goes in there, takes at least half-a-million dollars worth of iron.
Grover: Right, but how's he gonna move it? Criminals like weapons that are cheap and untraceable. These are neither. That's right. And if this guy's smart, which he certainly seems to be, he's gonna take these weapons straight to the collectors' market, which is why I just got off the phone from Norm, our old buddy from Norm's Sportsman's Shop. This guy he knows all the biggest gun aficionados on the island, including the ones with the deepest pockets. I wouldn't say “gun aficionado” 'cause an aficionado, to me, refers to, like, people who collect cars, and cigars and fine wine. Gun nuts are gun nuts. Let's call them what they are. They're gun nuts. That's being nice. Okay, all right. And now that you're the arbiter of fine living? Is that, is that right? Hey, whatever. I respectfully disagree.
Steve: Mm-hmm. He give you any names that maybe we should get in contact with? He did. He gave me a name. This guy. This is Matty McConnell, AKA The Lord of Lead, AKA The Prince of Iron, AKA Papa Firearms. This guy is a gun enthusiast/social media personality.
Grover: He's got over 12 million followers.
Danny: That's a lot of people with bad taste.
Grover (reading): “This is what real karma looks like. It's time for real gun control”" Mm-hmm. And there's a link.
Danny: An anti-gun forum. Okay. So this guy, he levels a gun range. Then he executes a man who made a living glorifying firearms, then he hijacks his social media to promote an anti-gun agenda? We're not looking for a normal killer here. This guy's a vigilante, and he's declaring a war on guns. Which means that anyone who is pro-guns could be his next target.
You may pause for a moment and consider, what about the legal vigilantes, Congress and the Administration, who want to ignore our Constitution into their own hands for the sole purpose of securing their own political power?
Danny: Where are we at with the protection detail for the other potential targets? Well, HPD's already reached out to the obvious ones, your gun dealers, your heads of gun rights associations, and the like. The problem is most of them said, “No thanks.” Their attitude is our guns are all the protection we need. That's great. That's-- it's good judgment. I'm-I'm glad that those people are armed. It makes me feel good. Yeah, Duke's afraid that most of these people actually want Marvin to come after them. ‘’
Steve: Yeah. All right. Well, let's hope it doesn't come to that. Thanks, Lou. Really the height of hypocrisy, isn't it? What is the height of hypocrisy? Well, this guy is using a gun to go on an anti-gun crusade. Hmm. I mean, how else is he gonna make his point, I guess? I think what we should do, get a big magnet, Mm-hmm. glue it to the bottom of a helicopter, fly all around the country, and suck up all the guns, huh? That's good, right? Yeah, it's good. Sucks 'em all up.
“Our guns are all the protection we need. That’s great.” Damn straight it’s great: when the police are engaged elsewhere and you and your family are being threated by an armed gang-banger, or a teenager is threated by a rapist breaking into the family home when her parents are away, it is great. There are millions of law-abiding citizens who are capable of protecting themselves. It speaks to American individualism and self-reliance, not politically correct collectivism and victimhood. As for scooping up guns, that would be a violation of the Second Amendment – but then again, a Supreme Court stacked with a majority of progressives could simply say that the idea of “general welfare” gives them the right to simply ignore the constitution. After all, it worked for Obamacare and the demand that all Americans buy a commercial product under penalty of law – fines or incarceration.
Oh, so you're saying, you're saying you don't believe in the Second Amendment, but that people should have the right to keep and bear arms. I'm not talking about the Second Amendment, okay? That mentions a militia. Okay? It also uses words like “well-regulated”, and good job ignoring me. Okay, so you're saying people shouldn't be able to carry guns despite the fact that you carry a gun. I carry a gun-- I'm a cop. It's my job to carry a gun. Mm-hmm. What are you talking about? I got to, I got to protect the good guys from the bad guys. Right. Exactly. So what if normal people, what if citizens want to protect themselves and their families from the bad guys? Shouldn't they have a right to do that? How about if we just don't let the bad guys have any guns? Then the good guys won't need any guns, and nobody needs any guns, how about that? And you know what else? While we're at it, we can eliminate discrimination, war, hatred, violence, all that kind of stuff. We'll all live happily ever after, and we can, uh, you know, ride our unicorns to work every day. And you'd probably commandeer my unicorn, and drive it to work every day.
The truth is that you cannot legislate human nature. People kill other people. If not with a gun, then with a knife, baseball bat, poison, explosives, or anything else at hand. Your vehicle is a multi-ton weapon and actually has been used for mass murder (four or more dead as the definition goes). So what, are you going to ban vehicles? Has anyone noticed that driving a vehicle is not a constitutional right, that it requires a state license, and you must have insurance – all of which is ignored by most illegal aliens? Despots raise armies, kill entire populations, and the United Nations sits idly by watching the ethnic cleansing. Most of these people are unarmed and fall victims of hostile governments, or even worse, predators acting under the color of authority (like UN Peacekeepers).
Marvin: Get on the ground! Now! (sirens wailing) Take these. Padlock that door. Go. Okay, guys, we got nine hostages inside, two of them are judges.
Chin: You know, it doesn't make sense. Hawaii's got some of the toughest gun laws in the country-- why take over a courtroom here? That's not all-- one of the judges is Justice Isaac Bracken-- HPD quietly issued him a concealed carry permit last year. He's locked in there and he's got a gun-- that's great. Let's hope he doesn't try to be a hero.
The wealthy and the powerful are protected and insulated from the consequences of their actions. Here we see a judge carrying a weapon and the police are hoping he will not use it to protect himself and the hostages. This is the pussydom the progressives are promoting.
To you in three... two... one. Good afternoon. We are coming to you live from inside the Hawaii State Supreme Court. The man next to me, Marvin, has taken control of the room, but has allowed us access. Sir, would you tell us why you've invited us inside?
Marvin: Well, I wanted to speak with the people about something that's become a crisis in America. In the last 30 years, our country has had twice as many mass shootings than the other 24 richest countries on this planet combined. And what has our government done about that? They killed the assault weapons act... (whispers): What are you doing? He's distracted. I'm gonna end this. Please, don't. You're gonna get us all killed. Got to do something, or this son of a bitch is gonna kill us first. Just let the police handle it. You don't need to do this.
Assault weapons, that’s another thing. Scary looking guns are not fully automatic assault weapons. But, with the progressives it’s the “optics” not the reality that counts.
Danny: Look, you are not responsible. This is not on you, Kyle. You hear me? I failed him. I... I failed my son. Listen to me. I am a parent. I got two kids-- I got a son and I got a daughter-- and I know... I know no matter what I do, how hard I try to raise them right, teach them the right things to do, at the end of the day, what they do, that I can't be responsible for their actions. I mean, what-what your son Sean did, he did on his own. There's nothing you could have done to stop that. You don't know that. I'm not the only one with blood on my hands-- the gunmakers, the lobbyists, politicians in their pockets-- they're all responsible, too. (crying): I thought after it happened that maybe something would change, maybe-maybe some good would come out of it. But then nothing happened! That's when I knew that something had to be done. Somebody had to hold these gun nuts accountable. I understand that. And I know that it is very easy to blame the pro-gun crowd. But I-I think, ultimately, we are all responsible, collectively. The gun industry can stop it; they choose not to! The gun industry doesn't police itself. The politicians don't do their jobs. And on it goes, and on and on and on! It's got to end! I agree with you 100%, okay? I am a cop. I am outraged at how easy it is to get a gun, no questions asked. As a father, I'm even more outraged. This is not the way we fix the problem. Uh, stealing guns and-and killing people? I mean, you're no different than any other crazy man with a gun. Right? Look, I don't think you want to hurt anybody else. That's not what you were trying to do. You were looking for a platform. You got it. You said what you had to say. But somebody in there is hurt, hurt pretty bad, and if he dies or if anybody else gets hurt, that's all people are gonna be talking about, okay? Not your message. Not your message. You want people to hear you? Come outside. Put your gun down and come outside. You want people to hear what you have to say, you got to put your gun down and come out. Kyle?
There it is – the essential truth: progressives want to “collectively” blame society or groups so they can justify unconstitutional and confiscatory policies based on “public need” or “public demand.” Where the rights of a vocal progressive minority supersede the rights of the majority. There is no such thing as individual responsibility is the progressive world. Bad guys are bad because of societal injustice or what happened to your ancestors. People were poor and disadvantaged during the depression, but they didn’t turn lawless. Progressives are the ones allowing criminals out of jail early or allowing them to plea down gun charges in return for a guaranteed conviction.
And for those who say the system is rigged against the blacks, show me the black racist mayors, black racist police chiefs, black racist judges, and black racists juries in the progressively-governed inner cities who are sending too many black criminals to jail.
And in real life, the messaging is staged …
One of the emails contained in the Wikileaks’ Podesta email release shows that Hillary Clinton had gun control supporters planted in a town hall audience in Manchester, New Hampshire.
The town hall occurred on October 5, 2015; just four days after a man opened fire on Umpqua Community College campus in Oregon. In the email thread, dated October 4, 2015, a “speech draft” was passed around “on behalf of Megan Rooney.” The email contained “talking points” for Clinton to use to discuss guns in Manchester. The first part of the email reminded other campaign staffers that the town hall had no specific focus, although gun control would be highlighted:
Here are short TPs about guns for the NH community college town hall >>> tomorrow. This is not a town hall exclusively about gun violence — it’s just a >>> regular town hall.
The email then turned, reminding everyone that there would be gun control plants at the town hall; that those plants would be from various gun control groups:
But the person who will introduce [Clinton] will tell a story >>> about gun violence in her life, and there will be people in the audience >>> from gun violence orgs.
The Manchester town hall was held at Manchester Community College. And the talking points advised Clinton to begin by saying, “We’ve seen yet another mass murder – this time, in a community college in Oregon that’s probably a lot like this one.” A text of her speech shows that she promised to “make gun control a top priority” and enumerated controls like an “assault weapons ban,” an expansion of the list of persons barred from gun possession, and more laws against straw purchases.
She did not mention the fact that the Oregon community college campus was a gun-free zone–which means it had 100 percent gun control. Nor did she mention that the gunman acquired his firearms via background checks. <Source>
You will NOT hear mention of the hundreds of blacks gunned down in the inner cities. The progressives have no problem with citing institutional racism in the police department or in the greater community, but cannot bring themselves to note that it was progressive policies that banned men from the homes of welfare recipients and gave us a generation of angry, young males who not only disrespect women, but disrespect law enforcement and life in general. The progressives continue to give us ill-educated children, functional illiterates useful only for their activism and votes. The progressives give us more class warfare, more divisions among Americans, and openly pursue policies that destroy entire communities. The progressives speak about income inequality and say nothing about the illegal aliens, whom they welcome with open arms, who are destroying our social safety nets, our healthcare infrastructure, and prevent wages from rising because they are willing to work cheaply. This is the real source of income inequality in the middle class. What progressives say and what progressives do are often at odds: with morality, with legality, and with commonsense.
Bottom line …
If you are among those offended by the propaganda on Hawaii Five-0, don’t watch the show and don’t purchase the sponsor’s products and services. Campaign for commonsense and the ability to protect oneself and one’s family from criminals and crazies. Not to mention the possibility of having to defend against an increasingly tyrannical government.
Why the 2016 presidential election is important: the courts. Yes, you may get your day in court, but you may not get a fair hearing or a just outcome. One need only look at he tortured language of Supreme Court decisions where they find non-existing constitutional powers to judge matters that are clearly reserved for the states or “we the people.”
I know it will be difficult, but hold your nose and vote Trump. There is the possibility of a future with Trump, not so much with the corrupt, lying Hillary Clinton.
We are so screwed.
P.S. Sorry for the long blog post, but it was my best friend Al’s fault.
