Teachers Union VP: Second Amendment Supporters ‘Going to Hell’Posted by Janell Maria Troutt on June 25, 2013
Anyone who has heard of Netroots Nation most likely already knows that this ‘conference’ is about as far left as one can get. However, it still enrages me when Liberals, who claim to be all about tolerance, make absurd claims such as the one made by Lily Eskelsen Garcia made. According to this Vice President of the National Education Association, all supporters of the Second Amendment are “going to hell.” She goes on to say, “I’m not an ordained minister, I’m not a theologian, but these guys are going to hell.” She must think highly of herself to make such a bold declaration. Garcia then proceeds to say, “We have to make those senators as frightened of us as they are of the gun lobby.” This sounds like a threat to me.
The Education Action Group, a non-profit organization working towards real education reform, countered the statement by saying, “It’s hard to see how supporting the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution could sentence one to an eternity in hell, but maybe in their ultimate wisdom, teachers union leaders know more than we do.”
As a staunch supporter of the Second Amendment, an NRA Member, and most importantly a Christian, I certainly know that I am saved by the grace of God. Maybe it is time for far left activists to study the Bible before making horrendous accusations. As well as a ridiculous statement, this was also a blanket statement. Garcia lumped every single supporter of the Second Amendment as heretics. Ironically, most individuals I know are Second Amendment supporters and Bible believing Christians.
This is just one of many examples of the hateful rhetoric that spews from the leftist machine. For individuals to talk about the need for more ‘tolerance,’ yet make statements such as the ones make by Garcia, goes far hypocritical to the realm of insanity. Benjamin Franklin said, “we are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid.” I suppose Ms. Garcia is a very hard worker.
