Posted on 04/21/2018 10:53:40 AM PDT by Simon Green
The anti-gun left has apparently fully embraced that old saying from the late sixties and early seventies: the personal is political. Its not enough to protest the NRAs headquarters, call its leaders Nazis and ask how many kids have they killed today in tediously un-original chants. Now theyre attacking their homes and families.
National Rifle Association lobbyist Chris Cox says his house was splashed with fake blood twice.
Then, someone made a fake website for his wifes interior design business, altering images of artwork to show photos of child gun violence victims.
Last week, two gun control activists protested outside Coxs Alexandria, Va., home and handed out fliers outside his wifes nearby business.
The blood splasher was caught.
An attorney for Patricia Hill, the alleged vandal, did not immediately provide a comment regarding the fake blood incidents. The other protesters say they have been careful not to cross legal lines and knew nothing of the vandalism. They are all part of a growing movement that thinks gun control advocacy should be more aggressive and more personal.
Hill, who is also a professor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, was arrested after the January incident and faces a misdemeanor charge of property destruction. She declined to comment because of the pending case and referred calls to her attorney.
And they wonder how a candidate like Donald Trump not only eliminated more than a dozen conventional GOP rivals, but then beat Hillary Clinton.
Adam Winkler, a UCLA law professor who has studied the fight over gun rights, said such confrontational protests are familiar in abortion and animal rights activism but rare in this realm.
It is a sign of how gun control activists are looking for any new avenues, with Congress deadlocked, he said. Gun control activists are really pushing the envelope, trying any way they can.
They want to de-humanize and de-platform anyone who dares to disagree with them.
I dont think the Cox family is getting enough social pressure, said (Amanda) Gailey (above left), a professor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln who said. People need to stop treating these predatory, sick people like theyre just a neighbor.
Anything in service to the cause.
(Catherine) Koebel (above right) added an armed gun rights advocate once came to her door and demanded to come inside. She filed for a restraining order.
Her protests are by definition less threatening, she argues, because she opposes guns.
If I made him uncomfortable at his house, too bad, he deserves it, Koebel said in an interview. I felt unsafe in my home because of his product.
These new, more aggressive anti-gun activists may not like the result of their tactics. Gun rights supporters have begun to adopt many of the same methods that the fringe left has been using for decades. How would Gailey, Koebel and Hill react if they woke up one morning to a half dozen or more pro-gun demonstrators marching peacefully in front of their homes while openly carrying firearms?
Or how about other leaders of the civilian disarmament movement? Would David Hogg be happy if his parents places of business were the sites of demonstrations against further gun control laws? Does Shannon Watts want to wade through a group of Second Amendment supporters at the foot of her driveway every morning?
Gun rights supporters are, by definition, law-abiding, peaceful people. But continued targeting of the homes, families and businesses of people with whom the anti-gun left disagrees could have results they dont expect or want. Gailey, Koebel and Hill should be careful what they wish for in trying to establish this new standard.
Wouldn’t it be interesting if they used the very same vigor in pointing out how democrats take our tax money from Planned Parenthood?
Someone needs to tell these two hos that they’ve got the NRA confused with their beloved “planned parenthood”. Who REALLY profits off of dead kids? “Planned parenthood” does. These two need to get their heads out of their @$$es.
Someone needs to stand out there besides these two nitwits with prolife signs ... you know, since they’re so concerned with children.
Libel & slander are not legitimate social pressures. Moreover, this deliberate effort at misdirecting attention from what actually works to reduce violence aimed at school kids, is simply more evidence of the sociopathic nature of the American Left.
Thanks Simon Green.
Bunch of these topics now:
The douchebag brunette has the standard model Liberal Psycho Eyes.
These two ‘tards need to understand we can do the same thing to them.
Disgusting. The left is to blame for the killings, by teaching everyone that nothing is right and nothing is wrong.
2 Idiots and an Idiot to take the picture ,yep a very big protest
RICO behavior? These sorts of actions are likely not spontaneous, but are organized, planned, and paid for by... someone.
Sine most if now all of these lunatics are pro choice (pro death), its odd to see them concerned about dead children.
The hypocrisy is so pathetic. Obviously the NRA and a group like NARAL are totally different in what they lobby for. These fidiots would start a civil war to defend infanticide.
They best be careful what they wish for, they might get it.
“They are all part of a growing movement that thinks gun control advocacy should be more aggressive and more personal. ”
Translation: They believe they should physically assault people for the crimes of having and expressing opinions that differ from theirs.
I am beginning to believe the schism between the left and right is nearly insurmountable. I think we may be at or past the point where we can compromise ourselves into some form of unity.
It may well be time to get serious about splitting the nation and letting the libturds go screw up their own country, while the rest of us build a new an stronger conservative nation.
Heh. More new memberships comin’ up. We should be seeing more of a flood, though. Where are you all? Toss some support into the fray, if you value your rights!
So the fake blood thrower(criminal) is a Prof. In Nebraska....
Perhaps some attention aimed towards her illegal behavior to the College President,
Foundation Boards, Regents and or Board trustees is warranted
The blood thrower should have a bucket of slaughterhouse blood hurled in her face.
There have a number of times I wished that I was back in college so that I could throw a bucket of blood or red paint on the doors of leftist professors.
