This will be short and to the point. Imagine if a Republican senator, not to mention one in a leadership position, threatening, by name, Justices Sotomayor, Ginsberg, or Kagan? Imagine if Republicans threatened to “stack the court” because they were not getting their way? Imagine if a Republican tried to dismiss criticism about a completely out of line comment by offering a greater lie?
I am here in Brownswood, Texas and listening to Sen. Chuck Schumer offer his excuse for making his abject threat against two Supreme Court Justices. It is all about fighting for a woman’s right to choose. A choice to do what? To murder unborn babies as a means of birth control?
No community has suffered under this Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Wade, like the black community. We have witnessed in the past 47 years a genocide in the black community of 20 million unborn black babies…at the hands of an organization founded by a white supremacist and racist, Margaret Sanger.
It is utterly disingenuous for the leftists to assert this constitutional right, all while denying and undermining, the well-established Second Amendment constitutional right of all Americans. For the left, this is all about their ideological agenda. If something aligns with their agenda, it is a declared right. If it does not, it is not a right.
We have stepped over into a new arena now. The left is embracing infanticide and late-term murder of babies. Chuck Schumer is nothing more than a modern-day priest of the god Moloch, the Canaanite god of child sacrifice.
Schumer did as all leftists do, claimed that he was overtaken by emotion and misspoke. He did not apologize. He was wrong in levying a personal threat, by name, against Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh. He was wrong in placing a target on them, stating that they will “pay a price.”
Then again, as I have always said, leftism is only advanced by threats, intimidation, coercion, bullying, and ultimately, violence. Violence, as we have seen enacted by groups like Antifa, or a lone shooter, a Bernie Sanders supporter, against Republican members of Congress at a baseball practice.
You can push folks only so far, and the rhetoric of the left is causing the immense philosophical chasm in our Republic. There is no defense for what Schumer said, but we must recognize that the left will advance it’s tyranny by any means necessary, and are unapologetic for it. Be it ripping up the State of the Union Address, or threatening Supreme Court Justices, by name. And, give me a break about the absurdity of Schumer’s comments being aimed towards Senate Republicans, it is still a threat.
Are these the folks we want in power in our America? If this is the type of anger, rage, emotional meltdown evidenced because there are those of us who defend the rights of unborn children, God help us. Think about it, they want to disarm law-abiding, legal gun owners in America. They then will have free rein to leverage their anger against you.
I say no to these bullies.
