There are few things that scare the citizen control movement more than those individuals that dare remind the citizenry that the primary purpose of the Second Amendment isn’t about hunting or even defending your home from criminals, but defending your community against tyrants, both foreign and domestic… even if that comment is made in passing.
Think Progress’s Ian Millhiser is the latest dainty progressive to take to his fainting couch over someone stating the obvious:
During an interview with a conservative podcast, New Hampshire state Rep. JR Hoell (R) predicted that a day may soon come when conservatives need to rise up in armed resistance to their elected government.
If you listen to the actual audio Hoell doesn’t mention anything at all about “conservatives” rising up in armed resistance to the government at all. Millhiser is being purposefully dishonest.
The audio comes from interview about a coalition of hunting and outdoors groups who were going to be protesting at a GOP fundraiser. One of the men interviewing Hoell asked if protestors would be open carrying slung rifles and shotguns, which has happened at protests in the past.
Hoell advised protestors not to open carry because he’s aware of how the progressive media likes to dishonestly spin such displays as “threats”, leading in to the following statement:
We’re not here to threaten anybody. We’re here standing on our soapbox as opposed to standing with our ammo box in hand to make a point politically. The message needs to get out that Scott Brown does not represent New Hampshire.
If things continue the way they are, there may be a day or a time where firearms and ammo are necessary. It happened in the Revolutionary War. I’d like to think we’re not there yet, but as things continue to unravel, that may be the next step.
Let’s stand on out soapbox this time, and get out there with orange jackets and vests and hats, and make a big deal about, “this is not new Hampshire.” Scott Brown is a carpetbagger from a different state…”
Threatening anyone with firearm anywhere was never part of the conversation, and the dishonest propagandists at Think Progress own J.R. Hoell an apology.
