YouTube blocks links to texts of Virginia anti-gun Bills – American Thinker

YouTube is now blocking links to the State of Virginia Legislative Information System (LIS).  On Saturday, the YouTube channel Guns & Gadgets posted a video titled “Virginia Anti-Gun Bills To Be Heard Jan 13,” wherein the proprietor discussed the 10 bills that will come before the Virginia legislature beginning January 13.  In the video’s description, he listed LIS links to the text for each bill.  As of 1 a.m. Sunday morning, YouTube was blocking the links with the following warning:

Does the State of Virginia know that YouTube suspects their site of “malware, phishing attempts, or disturbing content?”  The anti-gun bills are certainly disturbing, but probably not in the way that YouTube intended to convey.

What we are witnessing is an attack by the media on the citizens of Virginia.  Media oligarchs don’t want you to see the laws that politicians are about to pass.  We can ask, “Why bother having sunshine laws, when the oligarchy will attempt to block the sunshine?”  Remember, the virulent left has a strategy.  As Nancy Pelosi said, “…we have to pass the bill so that you can, ah, find out what is in it…”

The gun ban was designed and passed as a preemptive strike on lawful citizens to disarm them before Lobby Day on Jan. 20, when at least 100 bus loads of citizens will arrive at the Capitol to confront Democrat lawmakers over their anti-gun agenda.  The gun ban is a perfect expression of why we have the second amendment.

Lawmakers seek their own safety at the expense of the citizenry, and genuinely believe that law abiding citizens are the unsafe elements of society.  The Second Amendment exists to secure our own rights and our own safety against the very tyrants who believe we are the unsafe ones.  Listen to House Speaker Eileen Filler-Corn (D-41st) :

Our focus here is to keep everybody safe, said Filler-Corn. These are policies and rules that should have passed a long, long time ago and we’re excited and pleased that we’re moving forward now with the goal of keeping everybody safe.

Have you ever noticed how liberal regressive politicians who are openly suborning the Constitution and going backwards in history are always “excited and pleased” and are “moving forward” and “keeping everybody safe?”   The vulgarity of their verbiage is insufferable…

On Lobby Day, the Capitol grounds will probably be the safest place in Virginia.  On Lobby Day, the Capitol building likely will be protected by thousands of law-abiding gun owners legally carrying firearms for their own protection and the protection of the crowd.  Meanwhile, inside the Capitol building, Democrat lawmakers will be huddling in fear behind Capitol police while they confront disarmed, safety checked gun owners —  because, well, those patriots just scare them.

What we are seeing is the same preemptive, flip-the-script, political tactics that laid the path for the Antifa riot in Charlottesville.  A week before the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, former Gov. Terry McAuliffe warned people to stay away from Charlottesville, and former University of Virginia President Theresa Sullivan warned people to avoid the rally.  In both of their public statements they sought to delegitimize their political opponents as unsafe, when in reality they were the unsafe political voices.

In reality, it was the police, the public safety officer of the State of Virginia, and the Governor himself who let a riot happen, and who then blamed it on their opponents.  The investigative report by former U.S. Attorney Tim Heaphy laid blame for the violence on Police Chief Al Thomas, who denied it.  The same game is playing out right now, with lawmakers delegitimizing their political opponents, and media oligarchs preparing cover for whatever happens next…
