Fox News media personality Tucker Carlson made an observation on his show on Tuesday night: the media has stopped talking about Joe Biden and his policies regarding gun control.
That’s not usually a good sign. Tucker pointed out that Joe Biden — with the help of the #FakeNews media — managed to avoid talking about his plans for America for the entire campaign.
Tucker Carlson monologues:
Here’s a question for you: What does Joe Biden believe? What are his plans for our country?
The truth is, we still don’t know the answers to those basic questions. Joe Biden somehow made it through an entire presidential campaign — most of a year — without telling us because a partisan press corps let him get away with it. As a result, tens of millions of people voted for a candidate who wasn’t real. They voted for a ghost with a whitened smile. They had no idea who Joe Biden was. They had no idea who they were voting for or what he might do if he got elected. But at the urging of the media, they voted for him anyway. Now the rest of us get to find out what they voted for.
What Joe Biden did say about guns and the Second Amendment was essentially, ‘I’m for any and all gun control that will get leftists to support me after all their favorite candidates have dropped out.’
But if you look at the staff he’s retaining, it’s pretty obvious that what gun owners have feared is coming to pass: Biden is a puppet for some of the most anti-gun leftists in America.
Tucker Carlson went on:
Biden also wants less dissent from the population. The president-elect knows what we all know, which is that an armed society is an independent society. That’s why he’s hired Rep. Cedric Richmond, D-La., as a senior adviser. Richmond plans to disarm law-abiding Americans, not criminals. People who commit gun crimes are now being let out of jail, but people who have done nothing wrong and tried in good faith to protect themselves and their family will be punished. That’s not speculation, by the way. Here’s what Richmond told CNN last year:
RICHMOND, AUGUST 2019: If it is a buyback, then I’m all for it. If it’s a mandatory buyback, I think then you may run into some complications, but the thought of it does not offend me, and it sounds like something I could support.
Joe Biden didn’t have to talk about this radical idea: forcing Americans to ‘sell’ their guns back to the State for a fraction of their value! No, he’ll just put somebody else in power who will push that issue, while Biden avoids taking any heat.
Not A One-Off, Either
One advisor isn’t enough to conclude that Biden is a puppet for the far left. Unfortunately there are a lot more advisors in Biden’s planned administration to make it clear what his intentions are for gun rights.
Gun control didn’t play a large role in the 2020 campaign. There was almost no discussion about it for six months. But it’s becoming clear that preventing Americans from defending themselves and their families is a big part of the Biden agenda, and that’s part of the reason that campaign manager Jennifer O’Malley Dillon is the next White House deputy chief of staff. At a time when a record number of Americans have purchased legal firearms to protect themselves from skyrocketing crime, Dillon has called for the confiscation of more than 10 million legally owned firearms. We’re not making that up. That’s not propaganda. Dillon said it herself:
DILLON: A plan that supports mandatory buybacks of weapons of war. The assault weapons ban is very, very important and we need to have it. But that only takes weapons of war off the streets in the future. It does nothing for weapons of war that are currently out there, and I think there’s 15 or 16 million.
“I think there’s 15 or 16 million.” She doesn’t know the number. She doesn’t know anything. Imagine what she knows about firearms: “What end does the bullet come out of?” She doesn’t know, but it doesn’t matter. She plans to seize them anyway. Mandatory buybacks are seizure, the taking of private property by force. Not because the people who own those firearms have done anything wrong, they haven’t. Jennifer O’Malley Dillon just doesn’t think you should be allowed to have them.
These two in addition to making Beto O’Rourke his ‘gun control Czar’ round out the picture. Of course, gun owners won’t ever forget Beto’s thoughts on mandatory buybacks and outright confiscation.
The Rule Of Law Means Nothing To Them
The left doesn’t care about the Constitution. They don’t care about saving people’s lives. They don’t care about freedom, America, or the desire of free men to stand for what they believe.
They care about power. Power and money for themselves and their friends. And the number one thing standing between them and their goal?
Millions of armed Americans.
