We just caught a portion of a live commentary on Fox News by Judge Jennine Perino after exiting the movie “The Mocking Jay, Part 2”. The movie was pretty good.
If your not familiar with this series, “The Hunger Games”, it involves a struggle for freedom in a futuristic setting in the wake of a dictatorship. Great movies. Check them out.
Anyway, the Judge was laying it down, “shucking some corn” as my friend Jackie would say. I like her, generally, but this time she was playing on ignorance and fear when it comes to protecting ourselves from terrorist attacks like ISIS.
What I took exception to was her reactionary suggestion that we further “weaponize our police” to better protect all of us. Ummm…. Red Flag sister, er… Judge!
She alluded to the San Bernardino massacre that was obviously a radical Islamic terror attack. She thinks they were running around like keystone cops. Maybe they were but the Militarization of our police force as a reaction to these ISIS cues plays right into the progressive liberal “gun control” narrative. Are we really that scared and stupid?
This administration is looking to capitalize on incidents like San Bernadino. We have Muslims in the Whitehouse like Valerie Jarret (she runs things, not Barry) that capitalize on your fear.
Right after militarization of our police is confiscation of our weapons. You say no? We say gun confiscation is eminent if we allow government to grow and our Constitutional 2nd Amendment rights to erode. The 2nd Amendment protects us from a rogue government. It keeps our 1st Amendment rights intact, especially our right to religious freedoms.
Bottom line ~ Our right to protect ourselves and our family is inalienable, of God not man. It shall not be infringed.
We don’t need to further weaponize police in this country. We need to protect our borders, reject Syrian refugees, and teach our kids and family how to be proficient with a weapon, basic self defense. Teach them how not to be victims.
We must dilute our need to be protected by becoming the protectors.
