I can’t count the number of times my Rant of the Week’s subject has been about liberals who excoriate conservatives for doing something they do all the time. “Don’t do as I do, do as I say,” is a fundamental precept of liberalism and now there’s another shining example of how low a liberal can go.
California assemblyman Evan Low, apparently an avid shotgunner, recently posted a video on his Facebook page showing him handily dispatching clay birds at the Los Altos Rod and Gun Club. Low knocked them down at a rate that would indicate he was pretty darn familiar with the business end of a shotgun.
Now I understand that there are plenty of Democrats who love shooting every bit as much as Republicans but when it comes to Low, it’s a bit perplexing. As a California Assemblyman, Low is not known to be an advocate of the right to bear arms nor a friend of the NRA.
A TruthRevolt.com article relates how Low holds the National Rifle Association directly responsible for mass shootings. According to the May 18th article, shortly after the Orlando terrorist attack Low personally called out NRA lobbyist Dan Reid during a hearing saying, “It’s very difficult for me to sit here and look at you in the eyes and have respect for you, sir, Dan, because – not only because of lives that have been cut because of your organization, mothers and fathers, but many lives have been shattered by it.” Then he goes a little lower.
After reading out loud the names of some of the Pulse nightclub shooting victims, Low stooped still lower by saying none of them could be present because they were all dead and accused Reid of murder.
Specifically, Low said, “Of course, the reason they were murdered was because of basically your organization, which has vigorously lobbied to allow for these things to occur and to acquire weapons.”
Interesting words from a guy who appears to be a shooter and it makes me wonder how many Islamic terrorists he thinks belong to the NRA. Apparently, no one bothered to tell Low that the 49 people who died that night were killed by an Islamic terrorist. As difficult as it may be to wrap your brain around this so far, Low sinks even further.
Assemblyman Evan Low is a major proponent of the idea of making the entire state of California a sanctuary state for illegal aliens. Unless you’ve been tied up binge watching all 30 seasons of The Simpsons, you know sanctuary states for illegal aliens are… well… illegal on several levels.
First of all, illegal aliens are, you know, illegal, period.
Second, many illegal aliens go on to commit violent crimes in the local community.
And finally, declaring a state to be a “Sanctuary State,” essentially a get-out-of-jail-free card for illegals to live there is, in-and-of-itself, illegal. Of course being illegal doesn’t deter the blue states one bit. Being illegal is another of the fundamental precepts of liberalism.
Other brilliant positions Low holds include demanding President Trump’s resignation, or if necessary impeachment, and abolishing the Electoral College. I have no doubt at this very moment he’s hatching another wacky anti-second amendment idea which begs the question – How low, can Low go, I don’t know.
