Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action, which is part of Bloomberg’s initiative, said her organization plans to reach out to women and mothers over the next several months leading up to midterm elections.
“In many ways this is about emotion. The gun lobby has done a good job over the last 30 years of making a vocal minority afraid people will take their guns away. As a mother, I’m afraid someone is going to take my children away,” she said.
A friend sent me this link and asked:
I am puzzled how groups that claim to seek to empower women encourage them to embrace the false security of being disarmed and relying on others to defend them.
And I replied:
Unfortunately, these women are very eager to believe that they can live in the land of unicorns and fairy farts. They don’t want – or cannot even conceive of – personal responsibility for anything. They see oppression on every hand when their choices and actions result in pain and loss (when they can actually see and admit it at all)… it’s someone else’s fault, of course – and their lives would be so wonderful if EVERYONE they don’t like were forced to be mewling newborn kittens. They can’t even begin to see the hypocrisy here.
They believe with all their hearts that they can play naked and defenseless among strangers and never have their least whim disappointed. They want a “choice” to murder their babies, and can’t even be bothered to give them away to someone who wants them. Or keep their damned pants on (or take a pill) if they don’t want to be bothered. And we won’t go into the insanity of turtles and fish being vital to the “planet” but babies are disposable garbage.
I could go on, but you get my drift. It is about so much more than who has guns. It’s about control. It’s always about control. And those who do not want to control their own lives by being responsible for their choices and actions freely choose masters like Bloomberg.
Bloomberg appeals to these cretins because he promises that he will fulfill their unicorn dreams and never hold them responsible. He promises what is not, and never will be, of course. And then one day, perhaps, they’ll help put him up against a wall…
