Two stories reported by the progressive mainstream media illustrates the hypocrisy and foolishness of the media and those progressive social democrats who govern Chicago...
The first story shows anti-gun rights activist David Hogg marching around the empty NRA headquarters, protected by armed security – and the second story notes that 40 people being shot in the progressive socialist Democrat-governed utopia known as Chicago, Illinois. The city where the universal laws of physics are suspended and guns just jump up and shoot people.
Ironically, those who are calling for stricter gun control must be missing the basic facts: one, Chicago already has some of the most stringent gun control laws in the nation; two, all of the actual behavior of those involved is already covered under the existing laws; three, it appears that the progressives who govern Chicago want to allow plea bargains to remove gun charges – especially those involving minority felons in possession of guns – before the case is adjudicated; and four, the progressive fools entirely ignore human nature that posits you cannot control criminals, crazies, and terrorists with any laws, rules, or regulation because they neither respect nor abide by the law.
David Hogg -- the perfect progressive useful idiot…
It appears that David Hogg, the jumped-up, self-anointed drama queen “shooting victim” activist who seems to be controlled by professional progressive socialist democrats activists and agitators, bravely strode in protest against an empty NRA building accompanied by armed guards to protect his lily-white ass.
Anti-gun protester David Hogg hates guns — but not enough to not be protected by them. Hogg and a collective of anti-Second Amendment agitators protested outside the NRA headquarters on Saturday, and as the group points out, he was protected by armed guards. The NRA’s photos show, among other things, Hogg with several security agents. For his part, Hogg unwittingly tweeted a photo showing additional armed security protecting him. <Source>
Hogg, whose father is a former FBI agent, has never addressed the failure of law enforcement, including the FBI, and school officials to address the mental issues of the shooter even though he was well known as a disturbed individual with aberrant behavior.
The FBI admitted agents received a tip in January from someone who was close to Nikolas Cruz, giving information on his “gun ownership, desire to kill people, erratic behavior, and disturbing social media posts, as well as the potential of him conducting a school shooting.” The FBI said the tip should have been assessed as “a potential threat to life” and forwarded to the Miami Field Office. This would have led to additional “investigative steps,” which were not conducted. Police responded to Cruz’s house 39 different times over seven years, according to documents CNN obtained. <Source>
What protest would be complete without the progressive gays, the communists, and radical racists? Here Hogg celebrates with Congo native Therese Okoumou, whom Hogg called one of his “biggest inspirations.” If the name Therese Okoumou sounds familiar, she is the one who climbed the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty and at another rally started screaming, “America, you motherf*ckers! You drug addicts! You KKK! You fascist USA!” Perhaps she should leave America and return to the utopian paradise that is the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Then comes the progressive socialists in Chicago that believe that guns, not individuals, are killing their citizens…
At least 40 shot in Chicago Sunday, including 8 wounded in Gresham shooting
Dozens of people were wounded in shootings across Chicago Sunday, police said. Since midnight, police said 40 people have been shot, four fatally. Since Friday at 5 p.m., 57 people have been shot, six fatally, in shootings in Chicago.
"We know that some of these incidents were targeted and are related to gang conflicts in those areas," said Chicago Police Chief of Patrol Fred Waller at a press conference Sunday afternoon.
Police said there was a "trauma lockdown" at Stroger Hospital with only immediate family members of victims are being allowed in the emergency room. A spokeswoman for Stroger Hospital disputes the police account.
Police said a group of people, three teens and five adults, were standing in a courtyard in the 1300-block of West 76th Street at about 12:40 a.m. when several people approached on foot and opened fire at the group. The victims range in age from 14-years-old to 35 years-old.
Several had multiple gunshot wounds. All of them were transported to area hospitals and all are expected to survive. No one is in custody in connection with the shooting.
A shooting in the Lawndale neighborhood Sunday morning left a 17-year-old girl killed and five people, including an 11-year-old boy, wounded.
Police said two gunman got out of a white Impala and shot four people at a block party in the 1600-block of South Avers Avenue at about 12:02 a.m. Later Sunday morning, a 17-year-old girl was killed and five other people wounded, including an 11-year-old boy in a shooting in the 1300-block of South Millard Avenue. This comes just days after Superintendent Eddie Johnson visited ABC7 and talked about decreasing crime numbers and overall violence in Chicago. "I think some of our more challenging, communities, it's just imperative that police and the community work together to reduce this gun violence," Superintendent Johnson said. "We just have too many guns on the streets of Chicago." <Source>
Would this be the same community that hates and disparages the police? Would this be the same community that refused to cooperate with the police even when they can identify the shooters? Would this be the same community beset with gang violence that appears to be tolerated by both the community and the authorities as long as it stays in the inner cities?
Common sense dictates that criminals, crazies, and terrorists do not obey the law and that disarming or disadvantaging the law-abiding population only creates larger victim pools and increases the murder and mayhem. The sad fact is that you could remove all of the guns in the community and the evildoers would revert to an earlier time using knives, chains, nail-studded baseball bats – and anything else handy at the time.
It is about time that our politicians hold individuals, of any stripe or color, responsible for their actions and quit making minorities into victims.
We are so screwed when we elect these idiots to high office or listen to a high school student who happened to be near a tragic shooting and has now become an expert on gun control and the progressive agenda.
