That politics makes strange bedfellows is a well-proven political proverb. It’s playing out once again. This time in the form of anti-gunners and the far-left politicians they support. It would appear anti-gunners are in bed with anti-U.S. terrorists and murderous Iranian leaders who recently shot down a civilian airliner.
Instead of blaming Iran for shooting down an airliner days after attacking a U.S. embassy in Iraq, they blame President Donald Trump for “stirring tensions.” That is akin to claiming the Holocaust happened because Sir Winston Churchill “stirred tensions” by refusing to make peace with the Nazis.
The very same people who want to disarm U.S. citizens and abolish the Second Amendment rue recently successful efforts to protect U.S. citizens abroad. Iranian terrorist leader Major General Qasem Soleimani organized the attack. He likely hoped to inflict deaths, like what happened in Benghazi.
Instead, President Trump effectively defended the embassy. A couple days later, he ordered the drone strike that killed Soleimani. The same people who want to disarm U.S. citizens here attacked the President for taking out the bad guy.
Nancy Pelosi called the attack “escalatory” and “out of proportion” with the recent attack on the U.S. embassy in Iraq. Leading that attack was the same guy President Trump ordered the U.S. military to take out in a surgical strike from a drone-launched missile — Iranian Major General Qasem Soleimani.
Soleimani is directly responsible for killing and maiming U.S. soldiers in Iraq. He was one of the world’s leading terrorist figures. He is responsible for many terrorist acts and organized the recent “protest” that targeted the U.S. embassy in Iraq. Soleimani did not succeed in repeating the Benghazi boondoggle that resulted in the death of a U.S. ambassador and the very few men left to protect him.
The same anti-gunners who want to disarm U.S. citizens here called the action there a “protest” instead of a terrorist attack. They claim the Iraq embassy, likewise, was targeted by a political protest – never mind the fact it was organized by a known Iranian terrorist who wore a military uniform.
Trump ordered the man’s death via surgical drone strike just days later. It succeeded. The anti-gunners in the U.S. declared it murder.
So, we have anti-gunners in the United States attacking our Commander-in-Chief for effectively defending U.S. soil and lives. Meanwhile, they praise Soleimani, rather than condemn him for being a terrorist. The same anti-gunners attacking President Trump for “stirring tensions” by protecting U.S. lives and soil tell us we should give up our arms and depend on them for protection against bad guys.
Unlike in the United States, the people of Iran are upset their leaders shot down a civilian airliner, killed many people, and lied to the nation and world about it. They are protesting their government and not President Trump, as the far-left Democrats claimed.
The only people attacking the President for effectively defending U.S. lives and interests are anti-gun liberals and Democrats in the United States. Those are the same people who think effectively armed U.S. citizens are a threat to public safety.
Like President Trump, they do not want us to effectively protect ourselves. That amounts to “stirring tensions” in the minds of the far-left anti-gunners. They prefer we depend on them to defend us when bad guys come knocking.
