Democrats love to pretend that they’re outraged about money in politics. They curse Republicans and work very hard to try and paint the issue as a Republican phenomenon despite the fact that the biggest donors in American politics are George Soros, Tom Steyer and Michael Bloomberg- all liberals.
As liberal politicians pretend like they’re collecting $10 at a time from concerned grannies across the country, the fact is that the Democrat Party is consistently supported by big checks from millionaires and billionaires who have gotten rich but want to make it tougher for other people in America to succeed.
One such billionaire is Michael Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York who, when not concerning himself with how much soda people are drinking, crusades endlessly to eradicate the Second Amendment in states to help foster the kind of violence that has afflicted New York City.
Bloomberg evidently understands that the future of anti-Second Amendment efforts hinge not on a broad federal agenda, but upon combating civil rights state-by-state and city-by-city.
To help further his unconstitutional agenda, Bloomberg is working to secure elections for anti-Second Amendment candidates who are willing to embrace Bloomberg’s brand of tyranny.
One such candidate is Oregon State Rep. Val Hoyle who is running for Oregon’s Secretary of State position.
The New York liberal is dropping $250,000 on the Oregon candidate because of her previous support for Oregon’s background check law that was rammed-through the legislature under an “emergency provision.”
You know, the same kind of rationale that prompted Germany to offer power to Adolf Hitler to help shield them from the “emergency” they faced…
Though Oregon is often considered a safely Democrat state, the state is inhabited by many rural communities with conservative leanings while population centers of Portland and Eugene dominate the politics. This year, Oregon voters are energized as many remain angry about having their Second Amendment infringed-upon without a referendum or any public voice in the discussion.
As a result of the law having been passed via unethical means, several county sheriffs have flatly refused to enforce the prohibition on private sales, insisting that unconstitutional and illegitimate laws are not, in fact, laws.
The left loves to pretend that they are the defenders of true democratic ideals. If that were true, why do so many liberal donors feel compelled to meddle in state and local affairs?
Or, put another way, who should understand what Oregon needs more: Oregon voters? Or the gun-grabbing New Yorker?
