The liberal left is on a tear this week, eschewing their own last fibers of decency in order to attack American gun owners and the all important Second Amendment.
The right to bear arms in America is very likely the most important freedom that we have, given its nature as the guardian of all other liberties. Without weapons in the hands of our citizens, there is no way in which we could mount an offensive against a turn to tyranny by the federal government.
In that far off scenario, all other amendments would be rendered moot without the ability of the people to rise up and protect our livelihoods.
That is why we become so disconcerted with the left’s constant belittling of the importance of the Second Amendment, and their incessant and imbecilic attacks on those who fight for liberty.
While the political nitpicking is likely to drag on for months after the Parkland, Florida mental illness-induced attack of Nikolas Cruz, a great many corporations are bending to the will of the emotionally-manipulative liberals this week.
Entereprise Rent-a-Car is one such company.
“Enterprise Rent-a-Car will cease offering discounts to NRA members, it announced late Thursday afternoon.
“They are one of the numerous companies against which PR campaigns have been launched to pressure separation from the NRA.
“For example, Think Progress suggested there are ‘at least 22 corporations that the NRA says offer incentives to NRA members.’”
The rental car giant isn’t the only one bowing to the “social justice” pressure of the reactionary liberals either.
The First National Bank of Omaha has also decided to cease its relationship with the National Rifle Association – an announcement that the financial institution made via Twitter.
This aberration of the free market’s intent could very easily devolve into discrimination and segregation, if we are to allow the left a long leash. NRA members themselves could find themselves singled out for harassment and denial of services, effectively branding conservative gun owners as second class citizens in the near future.
For a “tolerant” bunch of Americans, the left sure are filled to the brim with anti-republican bigotry.
