Kirsters Baish| With the mainstream media and liberal America succeeding in their quest to brainwash high schoolers, the Second Amendment is under attack. These students are getting more and more attention, and not all of it is good.
Parkland, Florida school shooting survivors David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez have become the poster children for gun control and the Democrat Party. People have been noticing some big red flags with the protesters during their rallies over the weekend.
Gonzalez made her way onto stage on Saturday during one of the many “March for Our Lives” rallies. She delivered a speech which placed full blame on anyone who owns a gun in the United States for the horrific school shooting that took place in February.
What Gonzalez was saying wasn’t the shocking part of the whole thing. There was something about what she was wearing that caught everyone’s attention.
Conservative Tribune reported:
While standing on the podium, the anti-Second Amendment activist wore an olive green jacket that appeared to be a military uniform, with military-style patches sewn onto the sleeves. There was not a single American flag anywhere on the fatigues.
There was, however, a Cuban flag patch on her right shoulder — exactly where the American flag normally is worn.
One pro-Second Amendment Facebook page commented, “You can’t even make this up. She is wearing a Cuban flag, a communist country that is well known for disarming its own people and then slaughtering them wholesale; while addressing the U.S. about gun control.”
They definitely aren’t wrong. To replace the American flag with the symbol of a communist country is the definition of disrespect. She’s wearing this all while telling Americans to give up their guns… That certainly doesn’t look so good for their argument.
The executive director of Gun Owners of America Larry Pratt explained, “Hitler took several years to disarm the population using gun registration lists, but Castro moved against private gun ownership the second day he was in power.”
“He sent his thugs throughout the island using the gun registry lists — compiled by the preceding Batista regime — to confiscate the people’s firearms. Different tactics, same objective. A defenseless people don’t give the all-wise leader any lip,” Pratt went on.
The Castro regime in Cuba used a similar gun control tactic to disarm the public. Anyone who fled the island is aware of that and should understand just how insane it is to take guns from citizens.
Luis Valdes, a Cuban-American gun rights advocate questioned, “In modern Cuba, firearms are regulated by the National Revolutionary Police, the Ministry of the Interior and the Ministry of the Revolutionary Armed Forces. The private sale and transfer of firearms is prohibited. And Cubans continue to flee for the U.S. Surprised?”
Valdes stated, “We should never forget that purchasing a firearm is an important part of the American Dream.”
“Gun ownership is the one few tangible acts that we can do when exercising our Constitutional Rights. When you hold that firearm in your hand, you’re holding a literal, physical representation of freedom,” he continued.
Fidel Castro murdered thousands and thousands of his own people. When he was alive, R.J. Rummel, a University of Hawaii professor who tracked mass government killings around the world, estimated that around 141,000 innocent people were murdered by the Castro regime.
The report also stated, “And that was just through 1987. Since then, of course, thousands more have been killed.”
Emma Gonzalez shamed our country when she disrespected the flag. She chose to show support to a Cuban dictator rather than her own country. The Nazi salute gestures through the “March for Our Lives” events didn’t help either.
