“People do not wish to appear foolish; to avoid the appearance of foolishness, they are willing to remain actually fools.” —Alice Walker
Last night, I went to Concord to the Holiday Inn for the Gun Owners of New Hampshire monthly meeting to challenge Scott Brown on his Second Amendment Positions. Just to be clear, I was personally invited by GONH President Mitch Kopacz. Upon my arrival, however, I, along with Granite Grok’s Skip Murphy, was corralled by some unknown handler and asked to leave the property. This individual would not identify himself, other than as, “Hotel Management.” He would not answer any of the questions I asked, and was rude. So I was summarily kicked to the curb…the leader of one of New Hampshire’s largest Fish & Game Club’s…and a GONH affiliate.
I supposed I could have said, “You know who I am?” But honestly, I find people like that bellicose and obnoxious, and I stop listening when I hear that. Those who know me, also know my silence is far more concerning because it indicates I am thinking about what I am going to do in response. Hence this post.
Simply because he identified himself as a hotel employee does not mean that he is…or was. But woe to him if he was a Scott Brown Staffer. Woe to Scott Brown.
And as predicted, Scott Brown was all smoke and mirrors. He did not answer questions directly. So questions were directly asked, but answers were not directly given. One attendee described him as, “artful” in his rhetoric. But I don’t have the benefit of having heard him speak. I was not allowed in.
When Brown makes these appearances, he specifically requests that no media, no cameras or other press be present. Many have bent over to honor that corrupt request. To honor Scott Brown, the Bloomburglar.
Scott Brown is not honest. He might be well-spoken, charming, all that and a bag of chips, but one thing he is consistent about is not answering the questions directly. I hear that theme over and over. Brown was asked if he had applied for his “concealed carry license” yet, to which he responded that he did a month and a half ago and was waiting for the references to be cleared.” But that answer in an of itself demonstrates a lack of familiarity with New Hampshire Gun Laws and reflects a reference more akin to Massachusetts Gun laws. Either that or he lied.
RSA 159:6 (b) states in part,
“The license shall be issued within 14 days after application, and, if such application is denied, the reason for such denial shall be stated in writing, the original of which such writing shall be delivered to the applicant, and a copy kept in the office of the person to whom the application was made.”
What politician would come before gun groups to steer the conversation away from guns and the second amendment? Scott Brown. Brown says, “You have to look at my overall record.” Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.
Scott Brown works tirelessly to exclude media and the press while advocating for transparency in government. Scott Brown is a phony and a poser. Unlike other folks running for a political office, he fails to talk to people on a visceral level and earn their trust. He is not a risk taker and his campaign is crafted and tailored for the easily-duped sheeple who are looking for the next shiny thing to distract them. Those who will vote for anybody so long as they have that R next to his or her name. Scott Brown’s campaign is little more than Kabuki Theater.
A wealthy politician, whose kindly manner camouflages an evil agenda. A political candidate acting in their own self interest, who by their extraordinary charisma allows ordinary citizens to be deceived enough to be swindled.
>Was Scott Brown effective last night? Did he say anything at all that reassures Granite State Gun Owners? The concensus is that he did not.
