Blessed Are The Weak

In between blessing rigged elections for tyrants and offering his backside to Iran (and all its proxies), our 39th President enjoys a good book, walks along the beach, and gratuitously smearing people interested in self-protection:
But none of us wants to own an assault weapon, because we have no desire to kill policemen or go to a school or workplace to see how many victims we can accumulate before we are finally shot or take our own lives. That’s why the White House and Congress must not give up on trying to reinstate a ban on assault weapons, even if it may be politically difficult.
In this brief yet noxious screed, Carter shows us the kind of dedication to weakness that characterized his disastrous presidency. Rather than acknowledging the individual right to bear arms, Carter chooses to smear all tactical weapons owners as cop-killers, and to repeat the tired “our guns flow into Mexico” canard. Of course, there is no acknowledgement of D.C. v. Heller. There is only a collection of half-truths and omissions…not to mention this early entrant for Irony Of The Year (emphasis mine):
Many of us who hunt are dismayed by some of the more extreme policies of the National Rifle Association, the most prominent voice in opposition to a ban, and by the timidity of public officials who yield to the group’s unreasonable demands.
Of course, Carter saved his special brand of timid yielding for the unreasonable demands of anti-American tyrants…which leaves no room for yielding to American citizens’ Constitutional concerns. Carter always knew how to do “politically difficult”… unfortunately, these “political difficulties” often came at the expense of our national security, economic stability, and our global standing. Carter represented then, and still does now, the worst combination of the liberal’s misguided sense of justice and blame-America-first weakness.
Blessed are the weak, for they get ink while America still cleans up their mess.
