Trenton Democrats need to call out Bryan Miller’s racist image
This is Bryan Miller. He advocates for taking away the means of self-defense for working class single moms in cities like Paterson, Newark, and Camden.
Even the Star-Ledger’s Tom Moran now understands that the police have no legal responsibility to protect each and every individual in America. In a Republic, that job is left up to its citizens. YOU CANNOT SUE THE GOVERNMENT WHEN IT FAILS TO PROTECT YOU. That is established legal precedent.
So disarming single moms in towns like Paterson, Newark, and Camden… or anywhere else in New Jersey for that matter… is an open invitation to rape and murder for any thug passing by.
But that’s not enough for Bryan Miller. He wants to use racist images like the one above to scare groups like Moms Demand Action and the Brady Campaign into taking away the rights of single moms and other at-risk people to get the training and equipment to defend themselves against violent criminals determined to harm them and their children.
This is an old and sad story in America. Gun control laws were first used to disarm black people so that they couldn’t defend themselves against groups like the racist KKK. Racist appeals to support these laws were made to upper middle class women like those who make up Moms Demand Action and the Brady Campaign today.
Along with disarming black people and taking away their right to self-defense, came something called the “poll tax” which served to take away black people’s participation in public life. Now the Trenton Democrats – led by Governor Phil “coddler of rapists” Murphy – have come up with a way to do both in a single piece of legislation that raises the permit fee to own the means of self-protection from $5 to $300.
These Democrats are filthy racists and they need to be opposed.
No hard-working single mom should have to live in fear just because she can’t afford to live where the politicians live. Fear of rape and other forms of violence shouldn’t be the penalty for not having enough money to raise your kids in a town like all those Moms Demand Action and Brady Campaign folks come from.
Unless Murphy and the Trenton Democrats are willing to pay to post a full-time police officer on every street in every at-risk community, raising the cost by which women and other at-risk people can get the training and equipment to protect their bodies and lives is morally wrong and should be opposed by all right-thinking people.
