COMMENTARY | Apparently even serious illness was not enough to mellow Donald Kaul. The Pulitzer Prize nominated columnist from the Des Moines Register retired five months ago following a heart attack, but he decided to return to the paper after the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut. Kaul has been an outspoken opponent of gun ownership for 50 years, and, like many of his fellow gun grabbers, he exploited the death of 28 human beings to suit his purposes. In his first column since coming out of retirement, Kaul called for the repeal of the Second Amendment and the murder of gun owners who refuse to surrender their weapons, declaring the NRA a terrorist organization and dragging Mitch McConnell and John Boehner behind a pickup truck.
One might wonder why the left wing extremists, who claim to be great humanitarians, often turn to fascism and murder whenever the majority disagrees with them. As we have seen so many times before, whether it is the hateful rhetoric of the Occupy Movement or Mr. Kaul’s column, reason gives way to anger and calls for violence. The threats fly fast and furious, and eventually, real human beings are injured or killed. Americans witnessed hardcore activism at work during the Occupy assault on the city of Oakland, California.
Once again, the majority of Americans strongly support their Constitution, including “the right of the people to keep and bear arms.” This only serves to infuriate the gun control advocates, and their backers in the media, who resort to messages of rage and violence while claiming to care about the well being of the American people. Progressive extremists are quite willing to name their own enemies and then suggest someone else murder them by dragging their opponents through a parking lot, like the young man in Texas, dragged to his death behind a pickup truck.
Donald Kaul, Michael Moore, Al Sharpton, Piers Morgan, and the rest; we have a message for you. Your words of hatred and your calls for the murder of gun owners only show your true colors. It is obvious that you care nothing for our successful Republic that you belittle and insult at every opportunity. The fact that you use you millions and your positions of power to attempt to impose your narrow minded, angry view of the world on those you deem beneath your contempt has not gone unnoticed.
The American people grow tired of the hateful messages of those who seek to divide and conquer. We are fed up with the Al Sharpton’s who would separate America by race to suit their own ends, claiming to be humanitarians while yelling homophobic slurs on national television. We all remember Sharpton’s words of hate when confronted by an outspoken audience member on Morton Downey’s talk show. Unable to think as a rational human being, he yelled, “You ain’t nothing, you a punk faggot. Now come on, do something!”
We heard his sick attack on the Mayor of New York, David Dinkens, who wasn’t black enough to suit Sharpton’s racist standards:
“David Dinkins.… You wanna be the only n….on television, the only n….in the newspaper, the only n…to talk.…Don’t cover them, don’t talk to them, cause you got the only n…problem. Cause you know if a black man stood up next to ya they would see you for the whore that you really are.”
The saddest part of this sorry episode is that Donald Kaul is able to write his words of hate because of the very Constitution he would change and he probably doesn’t even realize his blessings He is able to spew his hatred instead of going to prison for death threats because he is protected by the First Amendment. We all heard Congressman Hank Johnson, the genius who worried about tipping over the island nation of Guam, call for a Constitutional Amendment limiting Free Speech. Our Constitution is under daily attack from angry extremists who don’t give a damn about you or your family. They are convinced you are too stupid to think for yourself.
The Des Moines Register has the right to publish anything they wish, short of slander under the definition of law. That, however, does not exempt them from responsibility for publishing the filth that Donald Kaul put forth in his column. Both Kaul and The Register owe an apology to the good people of this nation for the truly hateful and dangerous message they both chose to foist on the public by writing and publishing this sick column. I would suggest that Mr. Kaul seek mental health care immediately and go back into retirement. 50 years of his contempt for anyone who dares to disagree with him is more than enough.
Mr. Kaul, you have been rendered obsolete, just like the haters of the Westboro Baptist Church, who finally met their match when they crossed paths with the Hacktivist collective known as Anonymous. Those of us who love freedom do not feel the need to kill those who hold a different point of view. We are are willing to talk reasonably and even occasionally compromise. In the long run, Kaul is simply a coward, who wants others to do his killing for him.
To the Donald Kauls of the world, we are all children who must be told what to do and what to think. They are the all powerful planners and executioners who would like to completely control our very existence from cradle to grave. Read the disgraceful words of Donald Kaul for yourself and you will realize the contempt he has for each and every one of us.
From The Des Moines Register:
Kaul: Nation needs a new agenda on guns
“Repeal the Second Amendment, the part about guns anyway. It’s badly written, confusing and more trouble than it’s worth. It offers an absolute right to gun ownership, but it puts it in the context of the need for a “well-regulated militia.” We don’t make our militia bring their own guns to battles. And surely the Founders couldn’t have envisioned weapons like those used in the Newtown shooting when they guaranteed gun rights. Owning a gun should be a privilege, not a right.”
“Declare the NRA a terrorist organization and make membership illegal. Hey! We did it to the Communist Party, and the NRA has led to the deaths of more of us than American Commies ever did. (I would also raze the organization’s headquarters, clear the rubble and salt the earth, but that’s optional.) Make ownership of unlicensed assault rifles a felony. If some people refused to give up their guns, that “prying the guns from their cold, dead hands” thing works for me.”
“Then I would tie Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, our esteemed Republican leaders, to the back of a Chevy pickup truck and drag them around a parking lot until they saw the light on gun control. “And if that didn’t work, I’d adopt radical measures.”
