So tired of this “both sides” false comparison. When one “side” wants basic human rights and the other side wants to deny them to people, there is no honest discussion to be had
Regressives hate government services that work, it destroys their false narrative that “the market does a better job”. Their mission is to destroy successful programs by any means possible. First they mismanage and saddle them with debt. Then they defund. They use the argument that “we must cut service due to finances, the same finances that they just sabotaged”. Once service is cut, they make the argument that the agency or organization “isn’t doing a good job” and must be turned over to the market. Once privatized, costs go up and services go down
They have done this to:
The Postal Service
Our education system
And many other successful government agencies
Allow me to spin my own “conspiracy” for all you false flag believers that say the same thing after every mass shooting tragedy.
When a mass shooting happens, gun sales spike. Someone, somewhere, woke up to the news regarding the Las Vegas shooting and what they saw was dollar signs $$. Whether they rejoiced in the death is irrelevant, that profiteer still reconciled that it meant more and better business for them. Who was that person? The corporate gun manufacturing industry.
Now since everyone loves to chase down rabbit holes, ask yourself – who would benefit the most by spreading a conspiracy fear campaign that this tragedy was a false flag operation to be used as an excuse to seize all firearms in the US? Especially since nothing has ever been done in regards to tackling gun policy following such a tragedy. Take as much time as you need. Clearly some of you will need more time than others.
I don’t even care if this results in unfollows. You people need to leave this page. This page isn’t for you.
EDIT: AR doesn’t actually believe there is a reverse false flag conspiracy to get people to buy more guns. This post was framed in those terms to appeal to those who fall victim to conspiracy theories that distract them from actual critical thought. The point is to show that gun manufacturers are literally benefiting from this paranoia that the government is out to seize your firearms. We believe in the 2A. We also believe that certain restrictions regarding sales can help minimize these tragic outcomes.
We’ve been very consistent here – if we post something false, share a rebuttal from a legitimate source that proves we are wrong and we will take the false post down.
Instead of calling us idiots or insulting us, just prove us wrong and we will remove the false post. We are all volunteers here. We try our best to post factual info, but we make mistakes too. Point hem out in a nice way and we will take them down if you’re right : )
