Our Side vs Them (the double-standard)

Perhaps this my number one gripe against progressives, the Democrat Party and the like. Is that I always view them to wield a double-standard.

In the past, the criticism was made about the NRA having an insider placed inside the gun control camp.  Anti-gunners still make cries against Mary McFate and how insidious the “pro-gunners” groups are that they would spy.

Okay, let’s not even address the fact that they have numerous “spies” on their side. Be it Michael Moore and his NRA membership, or FFL licenses for the sole purpose of sneaking into trade shows.

But how does Mary McFate’s case stack up to the behaviors of the “anti-gunners”?

Well, there used to be an organization called AHSA. American Hunters & Shooters Association. The consensus amongst most of the gun owner community is that it was a shrill and a front.

A recent Washington Post article pretty much confirms that the sole purpose of the AHSA was to get Democrats, and in particular, one Barack Obama – elected.

Hmm…so it’s okay for the leftist progressive anti-gunners to create entirely fraudulent organizations. That’s totally fine morally to them. But how dare we just keep an eye on them and their actions of intolerance.  One observer inside their infrastructure versus an entire organization based upon lies and deceit. Which is worse?

And that’s a difference that I think always makes it harder for our side. Our opponents believe in an “ends justifies the means”. Anything they do, no matter how insidious is just fine, so long as it further’s their cause. Because they believe their cause is right.

Where as us, we tend to try to keep a more upright stance. It puts us in a position of having to wage a war against lies. Which is hard, when most of the mainstream media is willing to regurgitate their lies because they agree.

There has been much talk about gun blogging being a tad slow. We’ve not had to fight as hard, we’ve had some major victories, and even some positive press support (here and there).

And while that may lead to less blogging, less topics, etc.  We must always be vigilant. I assure my readers, that while this blog and other gun blogs may go a bit silent from time to time, we will rise up if and when we’re needed.
