Your Blogmeister’s Hotel Room
Why am I not much participating in the gun debate that has sprang up all of a sudden, even though I have plenty of opinions thereof?
Because I don’t want to participate in the left’s diversionary tactics. When we start debating about guns, we’re not noticing Islam. And that’s all the left really wants out of this, is for us not to notice Islam. They don’t care how the gun politics turn out, even though they have a preference. All they need is for us to conduct our politics and debate in a way such that their coalition of the fringes is not threatened, in spite of it murderously turning on each other. And really it’s not about Islam per se either, all that matters is that one element of the fringe coalition spilled the blood of another. For instance, if it was a Black Lies Matter activist who did Orlando and said he wanted to murder gay Hispanics in the name of the black racial cause, we’d still see the same zomg guns diversion presented to us right now.
