So the Conservative Tribute started circling this one Facebook (http://goo.gl/sDLpBS) and their site (http://goo.gl/JhbzgO). They also freak out about a video stating that the Black Panthers are marching with AR-15s to take on the police (http://goo.gl/5D933p). You can see the video yourself (http://goo.gl/O28RTr).
While they're certainly yelling "justice for <insert recently killed black person>" they're not talking about killing police or anything.
The Conservative Tribute states, "These violent thugs must be stopped." Hilariously, this is taking place in the SAME PLACE that Open Carry Texas garnered national attention last May after pictures from its "open-carry walks" went viral. Groups of white guys totting AK-47s into Chipotle, Target, and Starbucks. But hey.. they were just expressing their Second Amendment rights.
The following is not mine, but from the Voice of Reason on FB: "So when Teahadist traitors were literally aiming guns at law enforcement officers we were all supposed to agree with you idiots that that sort of thing was an example of patriotism and that all those toothless hillbillies were brave men standing up to an out of control tyrannical government but now that people darker than Marco Rubio are talking the same talk about standing up to a government that they see as not having their best interests at heart it's a problem?
Your "article" quotes Darren X as saying “The complete agenda involves going into our communities and educating our people on federal, state and local gun laws" and then goes on to whine about how alarming it is to see the Huey P. Newton Gun Club (the black alternative to the NRA – gotta love it!) openly carry guns "to an alarming effect." Guess what: You built this.
You people think it's OK to arm yourself to fight the tyranny of an oppressive government unless you're black? You people are now coming to the defense of law enforcement now that black people are using your playbook? You people wanted Americans to have access to guns to fight for their rights but only if their skin was lighter than J-Lo? What part of "shall not be infringed" do you morons not understand?
I look forward to seeing news reports of Darren X and the Huey P. Newton Gun Club marching into every lily white neighborhood in Dumbfuckistan until you realize what a monster you built and force the government that you want to protect you from the scary black people to sign a Mumford Act for the 21st Century. Until then I'll be kicking back and enjoying the schadenfreude."
There is such racial divide now that Open Carry Texas went to do a march through Fifth Ward and the community there stopped them. According to Open Carry they wanted to stand with them in a pro-open carry manner, but the community wanted nothing to do with them. http://goo.gl/x8CAY5
I'm certainly not for the notion of everyone carrying firearms. But division coupled with firearms is a recipe for disaster IMO.
h/t: My bud Andy on FB for the original share.
