A Political Hypocrite Gets Ripped

Watch Beto attack the hypocrite Abbott on stage.  Whether or not Beto is doing this for political gain or sincere convictions is beside the point.  The point is Abbott and many of his Republican comrades have pushed and pushed gun rights for a gun toting minority until the rest of our citizens have no rights when it comes to walking the street without fear of being shot by one of the 350 million legal guns in the USA. Guns graciously provided by the gun manufacturers and legalized by hypocrites like Abbott who make it easy for any nutcase, maniac or person with a grudge to buy a gun without a permit, gun training and in some cases without a waiting period or a background check.  Even as they provide their remorse for the deaths of 19 young children and three adults, these hypocrites are doing all they can in Michigan and other states to block any gun controls that might make us safer.  

If Beto is an embarrassment, if he has forgotten civility, then maybe we should all put good manners aside until we have people willing to do what is right.  Let’s call out these hypocrites whether Dems or Republicans for the money and favors they receive from the gun lobbies.  These favors are paid for with the blood of our citizens.  My kudos to Beto for standing up and speaking out.  

“Federal lobbying is not the only way to influence political debates. From 1989 to 2022, gun rights groups contributed $50.5 million to federal candidates and party committees. Of that, 99% of direct contributions went to Republicans.”Gun rights groups set new lobbying spending record in 2021

I will personally vote against any politician who takes one cent from a gun rights group or a gun lobby.

    I have memories of Sandy Hook, Columbine and more in between. Nothing is ever done, America’s gun culture defended and continues at the expense of the cruel waste of lives. I can’t imagine being caught up in any of the repercussions of such massacres. Politicians seem to have lost their direction. Sending sympathy…

      Thanks Margiran. I know so many people who are grieving over this. Each time another senseless and probably preventable tragedy hits, Americans are more traumatized then before. The problem is we need action and not trauma, prayers or moments of silence. IMHO. JOhn
