Democrats should grow some balls on guns. In debates or ads they should ALWAYS ask any Republican opponent POINT BLANK why they support arming terrorists over defending America. Not poll tested bullshit like “gun safety” or “universal background checks” but “why do you vote to give terrorists guns?”
We should also not be shy about linking our opponents to terrorists when they routinely encourage them on Twitter and endorse white nationalism. Let’s also stop saying “domestic” or “mentally ill” or “lone wolf” when describing these people.
Are they are part of a sophisticated global network of ideological aligned fellow travelers? Check. Do they commit mass violence to instill fear and attack our freedoms? Check. Are they being supported by state and non state actors? Check. The only difference with Al Qaeda is that they are frankly the more clear and present danger and they hate Jews and women for different reasons.
Let’s be real and let’s get tough. The suburbs won’t be crying over single payer plans if they are rightly terrified their mall, or place of worship, or school is next. This should be one of our top issues going forward. Breaking up terror networks and disarming terrorists.
