Escambia County, Florida, Commissioner Doug Underhill isn’t very impressed with the left-wing students marching to strip Americans of their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
“Good morning to all you marchers. You are wrong. My gun is not your problem, and my rights are not your business. Your fears and your hate are a very real danger to our Constitution,” he wrote on Facebook. “You are literally spending your Saturday demanding the government take away your rights. Pathetic.”
Responding to NewsRadio 1620 host Andrew McKay, Underhill said the students are literally trying to subvert the Constitution and Americans have a responsibility to stand up for their freedoms.
“The alternative that all lovers of the Constitution have is to engage their lies with truth,” he said. “They are not trying to amend the constitution in the manner prescribed by law. They are attempting to subvert the Constitution.”
Therefore, all Constitution-loving Americans have a right and A RESPONSIBILITY to speak up in defense of our rights. Standing up for our rights is neither intolerant or tolerant…it Is a right. Defending ourselves against the attack of socialism is our duty and our right. Keep in mind Andrew, it was the socialist experiment of this radically leftist south Florida town that created the monster that did this AND the little monsters who are parading around pointing the finger at people like me. These miscreants are not reacting to the event: They are prostituting the deaths of their classmates to drive an agenda that was formed in them long before the first shot was fired.
And it appears that Underhill isn’t backing down. On Wednesday, he told the Pensacola News Journal that he stands by his comments, and, the paper said, “although he’s gotten some negative responses, the feedback from his district has been overwhelming positive.”
“I know that people would maybe prefer that you’re supposed to use softer words and things like that,” he said. “If you’re coming after the constitutional rights of Americans, it’s probably not going to be soft words.”
He also told WEAR-TV that while the activists have a right to protest, real change won’t happen unless it comes from the heart.
“If you don’t figure out a way to stop creating hate and propagating hate, then it doesn’t matter what the tools of hate are, the end result will be the same and that will be dead people, dead children and rending the fabric of our society,” he said.
