Useful Idiots…. OR First Amendment, Second Amendment

DaTechGuy on DaRadio and his blogPete, DaTechGuy, posted a piece today entitled “2nd Amendment, 1st Amendment it’s all the same…” which lamented that the press doesn’t get it with regard to Obama’s threat to curtail gun rights, and asks if one amendment is no longer sacrosanct, what about the others?
I say that these folks are just today’s version of Lenin’s ‘Useful Idiots’, who will go along with the ‘revolution’ until it suddenly consumes them. Indeed, I ask them:

Dear useful idiot of the media,

I may disagree vehemently with what you write, but I would defend to the death your right to publish it. That, sir/madam is the purpose of the Second Amendment: To defend ourselves, our families, our property, and our RIGHTS…. EVEN against government.

You may disagree with my right to defend myself, but after they come for the gun owners, and you did not speak up in our defense, who will speak up when they come for the journalists? (Paraphrasing Niemoller)

Mike is a British import of more than 30 years, who was a conservative in the days of Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan.

A staunch constitutionalist, Mike espouses all good causes toward the libertarian side of conservative – EG he who governs least, governs best. He believes that the Declaration, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights mean what they say, and that candidates for office should take their oaths of office seriously.
Here to defend, without irony “Your rights as Englishmen from distant and tyrannical government”, Mike knows whereof he speaks and exhorts all US citizens to live, breathe and teach our history and our constitution.
