On Facebook the other day, The “Reverend” Nancy Nord Bence went full-on gaslight:
“To face the reality of our gun problem, you’ll have to admit that you are the problem too. You’ll be forced to connect the dots between guns and your white theology, guns and your nationalism, guns and your Islamophobia, guns and your white supremacy, guns and your resentment of foreigners, guns and the people who so often shoot strangers in shopping malls and schools and churches and concerts—guns and you.”
That’s not “facing the reality of the ‘gun problem'”. That’s exposing the reality of American Tribalism, delivered with a nasal, smug upper-middle-class white ninny accent.
It’s a real-life example of what Dennis Prager says: “Conservatives think progressives are wrong; progressives think conservatives are *evil*. And you don’t bother talking, debating or reasoning with evil”.
Pass this around. People need to know the other side’s motivations.
This isn’t some crackpot. This is the moral and intellectual leader of the “gun safety” movement in Minnesota.
She’s one sick, twisted little person.
