Then go join the Democrats

Along with all the other Fake Americans:
A prominent Republican political donor demanded on Saturday that the party pass legislation to restrict access to guns, and vowed not to contribute to any candidates or electioneering groups that did not support a ban on the sale of military-style firearms to civilians.

Al Hoffman Jr., a Florida-based real estate developer who was a leading fund-raiser for George W. Bush’s campaigns, said he would seek to marshal support among other Republican political donors for a renewed assault weapons ban.

“For how many years now have we been doing this — having these experiences of terrorism, mass killings — and how many years has it been that nothing’s been done?” Mr. Hoffman said in an interview. “It’s the end of the road for me.”

Mr. Hoffman announced his ultimatum in an email to half a dozen Republican leaders, including Jeb Bush and Gov. Rick Scott of Florida. He wrote in the email that he would not give money to Mr. Scott, who is considering a campaign for the Senate in 2018, or other Florida Republicans he has backed in the past, including Representative Brian Mast, if they did not support new gun legislation.

“I will not write another check unless they all support a ban on assault weapons,” he wrote. “Enough is enough!”
Hmmm, Florida-based. Checks Infogalactic. Confirmed. Fake American.

Hoffman was raised on the south side of Chicago, the youngest of seven children. His father, a Jewish Austrian, emigrated to the United States in 1906 and opened a poultry store, while his mother was a Scottish-American immigrant who grew up in Kentucky.

Fake Americans neither understand nor respect fundamental American rights. They may be paper citizens, but they are not Posterity and they are not Americans.

If I were the Chairman of the RNC, I would very publicly expel Mr. Hoffman Jr. from the Republican Party. The man is attempting to use his money and influence to disarm Americans and deny them their unalienable rights. I'd call him a traitor, except, of course, he is not an American at all. Even the civic nationalists with their "creedal nation" nonsense can't deny that, as Mr. Hoffman Jr. does not accept the creed or the Constitution.

The Republican Party has a choice. Be a party of partriots or donors.

For they are not the same, and expelling someone who hates guns is a good place to start. Then put primary opponents against the RINOs who are not on the train.

Because one party has to be imperialist, or the American Empire will fall.

While I'm no fan of Bush Jr, he did sit on his hands when it came to letting the original AWB expire (it was only authorized for 10 years and expired in 2004). Worth a modicum of credit anyways.

Also, even before I read that he was a member of the tribe he sounded like a member of the omniparty to me anyways. A big Jeb donor? Yeah, that just screams "fake American".

It really seems like in the last 3-4 generations we have had a much bigger problem with men becoming emotionally incontinent. Yes, mass shootings are tragedies but the entire "we HAVE to do something" mentality is literally a product of someone who can't control their emotions. I expect as much from your average woman, but for so many men (and not just of the millenial generation, either) to clutch pearls and aim for fainting couches is just proof they were never taught to be men.

That credit belongs to Congress, not Bush the Lesser. Baby Bush said he would sign a new AWB if passed by the Congress.

Congress had seen how gun control had cost Gore the 2000 election. If Gore had won West Virginia or Tennessee he would have been president. WV had been a Democrat state for decades and Tennessee was Gore's home state that both he and his father had won in Senate races.

Years ago, I returned a GOP survey that was really a beg for donations with a message written in sharpie -- NO MORE RINOS -- and told them I wasn't sending them any money until they started acting like real conservatives. Before I mailed it, I sent it to Michelle Malkin, who posted it on her website. Their response was apparently to cross me off their mailing list, because I've never received anything from them since.

I realize my contributions meant nothing compared with the kind of money the GOP gets from guys like Hoffman; but if their response to the demand for less conservatism is to cave in, then they'll have signaled that the GOP is finally ready to be taken off life support and die the stupid, horrible death that it deserves. What's the point of having a GOP that's just an incompetent version of what the Democrats were 30 years ago?

There are very few things that get me fired up politically, but 2A is one of them. Keep your grubby statist hands off my guns.

They're not the party of patriots and they haven't been for a very long time. Their alliance with the Conservatives/Evangelicals/"The Right Wing" is merely one of convenience for them. Even Rush has noted on many occasions that Republicans don't "like their base". It's why they're so deaf to our pleas of border security: they're hoping they can jettison actual Americans in favor of a Not-Americans who will vote for them in perpetuity regardless of what they do; just like the Democrats have every other Non-White group inhabiting the country. However, they're too stupid to realize that they will never be able to compete with Democrats in terms of offering handouts and other bribes to vote for them.

Blogger Ben Kurtz February 17, 2018 9:13 PM  

Israel actually has very strict civilian gun laws. They even require regular psychological evaluations as a condition to renewing firearms licenses (in addition to training and proficiency checks), which are mandatory for civilians who wish to own any sort of firearm.

Israeli schools get shot up (and not much lately) by Arab terrorists who get their guns from hostile powers, not crazy loners on one too many prescription pills.

That being said, if I were an Israeli I'd probably trust my government more to run a fair bit strict licensing program than any American should trust his government with the same.

One should always assume that government meddling and influence will always increase. This is especially true for when their presence actually causes more problems than it solves. In those cases, when it becomes apparent their interference is exacerbating the problem, their reflexive instinct is to double down on all their policies.

I like Vox's suggestion very much. Expelling him from the Republican Party for seeking to subvert such a fundamental right would send a strong signal. Doubt it will happen, sadly, but it's the only correct move.

Eh, you really shouldn't. The Israeli government is a mess of corruption, incompetence, and globalist/SJW convergence, too. And yes, getting a firearm as a civilian is much harder there than it is even in most parts of California.

Blogger Hammerli280 February 17, 2018 9:53 PM  

I suspect he was looking for an excuse to bail in any case. We're in the end stages of a shift in political polarity. The GOP thought it was the party of Big Business, but the Big Business interests discovered the profits to be had from crony capitalism and switched their support to the Democrats in the 1990s.

Of course, that meant the Dems had to abandon the working-class voters who had made up a large part of their base. But the GOP isn't called the Stupid Party for nothing, they kept going back to the Same Old Plan and got the Same New Outcome - losing.

Then Trump walked in and started working the voters the Democrats abandoned...and won.

The AR15 is not an assault rifle. It's a semi-automatic rifle. An assault weapon is an automatic fire rifle. And the AR15 is a comparatively weak rifle compared to rifles firing .308 or 30 06.

@18 "What a patriot, doing his part to re-stimulate gun sales..."

Exactly. The last time we had a high-body-count school shooting (Sandy Hook, 2012), the reaction by anti-gun politicians triggered the sale of tens of millions of firearms and billions of rounds of ammunition, and created shortages that only really abated with the election of Trump. This gun-grabber talk of banning of so-called "assault weapons" will only trigger another multi-year frenzy of firearms and ammunition buying.

One thing I noticed from my personal life is that when I entered high school there were about 1200 students - but only about 900+ graduated. That is because a large contingent left school when they were legally allowed to do so at age 16. The amount of bullying and shithead behavior dropped sharply beginning junior year - because the rotten kids left school on their own (or were quietly directed to do so). Thing is though - in those days most of them immediately got jobs in factories, gas stations, full time night shift crew at grocery stores, etc. We didn't have the massive immigrant (legal or not) population that we have now that prevents kids like these from working and gaining self respect. Also we still had mental institutions where the mentally ill were sent to keep them out of society.

Blogger SciVo February 18, 2018 12:22 AM  

Funny thing. The reason why the Bill Of Rights wasn't included in the Constitution to begin with was on the grounds that in the future, ignorant fools might mistake it for granting (and therefore making revokable and limiting by omission) what the Founders saw as natural, God-given, intrinsic human rights.

The reason why the Bill Of Rights was immediately passed and ratified was because of the counter argument: that the greater danger was that in the future, ignorant fools would imagine that their posterity didn't even have those rights.

Al Hoffman Jr. has somehow managed to prove both sides correct at the same time. [golf clap]

OpenID archerfisher21 February 18, 2018 12:30 AM  

Off topic, but it really is true that there is no compromise anymore. An old neighbor, elderly white guy, Christian who does mission trips, was posting about banning ar-15s and how epidemic gun violence is... I posted FBI crime stats and showed how many actual firearm homicides there are, and how few are rifles. He simply deleted the comment.

I also showed my Gen Z 16 year old brother a clip from the converged Arrow show, where Nazis are about to execute Arrow, his bisexual ex girlfriend, etc. I paused, pointed to one of the Nazi soldiers in black, wearing armor and a gas mask and swastikas and explained "this is how the left views us on the Right. They think we're evil Nazis. They see you and me as that guy." It's quite an insult, to smear your political opponents as pure monsters.

@29 "Eh, you really shouldn't. The Israeli government is a mess of corruption, incompetence, and globalist/SJW convergence, too. And yes, getting a firearm as a civilian is much harder there than it is even in most parts of California."

Can confirm. While you "own" the firearm, because you paid for it (about twice the going rate in the US), it's more like on long-term loan. If you move, you might have to sell or surrender it.

It's pretty much shall-issue if you live in Judea or Samaria and have no criminal record or documented psychological issues or ill-advised political or personal associations. But if you move inside "Israel proper," depending on the jurisdiction, you are likely to lose your permit, unless you have what is considered a valid reason.

Further, there is only one handgun and a small number of bullets you can have. No shotguns or rifles.

Steelpalm, unfortunately the government has gotten more competent in ways that are not so pleasant. Such as tax collection.

There is no way in hell that America...with its geography, economy, government, and diversity...could "control" guns. You could strike the 2nd Amendment from the Constitution and every law abiding citizen could peacefully hand over their guns to be melted. And the day after that was complete guns would still be as easy to find on the black market as pot or prostitutes.

I would think even the non-Americans in America could grasp the fact that the Federal and state governments have proven themselves helpless to control contraband of any kind. They make token arrests and 'busts' from time to time to make everyone think they're doing something. But in truth they don't even nudge the market price for illegal goods.

Of course I would be wrong in believing that such easily observed truths are understood by all. So we've got another mass shooting in a "gun free zone." And another news cycle of idiots crying that we MUST DO SOMETHING and enact SENSIBLE GUN CONTROL.

And nothing will change. And in a few months it will all happen again.

It's the gun control advocates who divert the debate from potential solutions who have the blood of children on their hands.

According to the internet, Parkland is a white-flight community about as far north and west as you can be and still live in Broward County. Household income in 2008 was $275,000. Median house price was over $920,000. Boca Raton is about 6 miles east.

They tried to escape their fate and move as far out as they could at a reasonable price, within commuting distance, and still avoid Miami-Dade dysfunction.

Rather than whining about gun laws, they are going to have to bite the bullet and cough up a lot more cash for cops and social services.

Heck, they could emulate Miami-Dade and create their own school police department with SWAT teams, drug dogs, and patrolmen right there on campus to disarm would-be shooters:

http://mdspolice.com/miami-dade-schools-police-congratulates-officers-rodas-and-biamby/

The feeling I get is that the Parklandians tried to create their own rich folks enclave with relatively low taxes right next to Miami and are butthurt that it didn't work.

So who is at fault? Their police department? Broward County? Their lady mayor?

Nope. The FBI, Trump, and the NRA. Its just like it was in Flint, Michigan. You go up the chain until you get to a cluster of white male goyim and blame them. Seems to work, though.
