• About Those Richmond Pro-2A Riots … Nevermind …

    Surge Summary: Predictions that a pro-Second Amendment rally in Richmond, VA would result in chaos and violence went unfulfilled this week. It’s another case of the Left’s attempting to link every conservative value with the “hatred” slur.

    by Gary Bauer

    For the first time in a generation, the left has complete control of Virginia.  It immediately set out to expand the right to abortion while limiting the right of individuals to protect their families.

    For many years people of all economic backgrounds and races have attended what’s known as “Lobby Day” at the state capitol in Richmond to rally in support of the Second Amendment.  While the left often criticized the rally, this year was different.

    For days leading up to the event, the media described it as a gathering of white nationalists and extreme militia members.  Apparently these proud Americans didn’t get the memo.

    CNN and MSNBC led the media smear machine, while Gov. Ralph Northam and progressive Democrats fueled the controversy with a pointless state of emergency that suspended gun rights. (Kudos to the brilliant writers at the Babylon Bee for satirically exposing the media’s twisted hysteria.)

    More than 20,000 people showed up [Monday], and there was not one incident of violence.  There was only one arrest – a 21 year-old woman refused to remove her bandana from her face.

    How can that be?  Where were the riots?  Well, these were law-abiding gun owners exercising their rights.  Sadly, the left despises them and is trying to turn them into criminals.

    But it fits a disturbing pattern.  The left is trying to marginalize and redefine as “hate” every position central to the conservative worldview.

    If you believe in the Second Amendment, the left says you’re a militia member who hates government.

    If you believe in the sanctity of life, the left insists you hate women.

    If you believe in borders, the left insists you hate foreigners and Hispanics.

    If you believe marriage is between a man and woman, the left says you’re homophobic.

    If you believe that men and women really are different, that boys shouldn’t be in girls locker rooms, the left says you’re transphobic.

    If you are concerned about radicalism in the Islamic world, the left says you’re Islamophobic.

    If you believe in America, the left says you’re a nativist bigot.

    As I have said before, the left isn’t just trying to impeach Donald Trump.  It’s trying to impeach YOU.  It wants to throw YOU out of the public square.

    My friends, we are in the middle of an epic battle for the heart and soul of America.  Please, while you’re thinking about it, click here now to make a donation of any amount you can afford to help us defeat the radical left this November.
