She’s back

If you don’t remember Robyn Ringler, here the outline of the refresher course:

She is back spreading her hate on the web again. This time she says she supports efforts to limit accessibility to what the U.S. Supreme Court says is a specific enumerated right:

As a member of The League of Women Voters (LWV), I encourage you to show strong support for these efforts. The LWV believes that the proliferation of handguns and semi-automatic assault weapons is a major health and safety threat. The LWV supports strong federal measures to limit the accessibility and regulate the ownership of these weapons by private citizens.

If she were advocating the limiting of accessibility to religion, books, or trial by jury do you think a newspaper like The Saratogian would publish her opinion? Why is it they let her spout her hate when it’s a different part of the Bill of Rights she is attempting to destroy?

She should create her own blog again and be left to whine by herself in some obscure corner of the Internet.

Update: From Barron in the comments:

As a member of The League of Women Voters (LWV) National Rifle Association (NRA), I encourage you to show strong support for these efforts. The LWV NRA believes that the proliferation of handguns and semi-automatic assault weapons Women’s Suffrage is a major health and safety threat threat to freedom and morals. The LWV NRA supports strong federal measures to limit the accessibility and regulate the ownership of these weapons by private ability of female citizens to vote.

And, like Barron, I do not support the restriction of women voting but the word substitution is very useful to illustrate the bigotry.

  1. I smell the substitution game.

    I just couldn’t help myself. Note, neither I, nor the NRA endorse the above statement, but like any statement from a freedom hater, substituting other things in illustrates their bigotry.

  2. Part of the issue is that the terms “right” and “privilege” are considered interchangeable by most people, not just the liberal/progressive left.

  3. @RobertX – Someone, I think it was John Lott, did a study showing that as various jurisdictions (states, countries, etc.) extended the vote to women there was an correlated increase in government spending, greater restrictions on various activities and lessening of family bonds (higher divorce and illegitimacy rates). Make of that what you will.

  4. Roberta,

    I don’t disagree with what you say but that doesn’t necessarily mean the solution is to deny women the vote. I’ve almost got myself convinced our politicians should be selected by a random number generator from the general population.

    Maybe I’ll write a post on it this weekend.

  5. @Joe, I’ve had the same thought, and I’ve even got a short write up that I had started – I’ll send it to you when I get home. It’s only a couple of paragraphs.
