Pop singer at DNC: We can control who we give ‘f—ing weapons to’

KeshaThis says a lot about the state of the modern left.  During Tuesday night’s concert at the Democratic National Convention, pop star Kesha displayed her lack of knowledge of basic civics when she told the crowd that “we,” whoever that is, can “control” who “we give the f*****g weapons to.”

According to The Hill:

Only hours after she had emceed the official speeches at the Democratic National Convention, director and actress Elizabeth Banks appeared on stage at the Theatre of Living Arts in a red cocktail dress to introduce Kesha.

“Who knew the hottest party [in Philadelphia] was about gun sense?” she said. “That definitely wasn’t happening [at the Republican National Convention] in Cleveland.”

Two songs into her four-song set, Kesha announced that she felt like she “needed to say something.”

The “Tik Tok” singer talked about going through tough situations and feeling hurt, touching vaguely on her own lawsuit with former producer Dr. Luke without calling him out by name.

“We as a nation, we can’t control who feels hurt, we can’t control who feels pain,” she said.

“You can’t control every single person and know how they’re going to deal with things and know if they’re going to pick up a weapon — you don’t know that,” she continued. “But what we can control is who we give the f—ing weapons to.”

Naturally, the crowd cheered loudly, The Hill added.

“I think the universe is screaming at us that there needs to be a change, and we have to f—ing listen,” she added, telling the crowd she hoped that “love could heal us” before launching into a song called “Dirty Love.”

Apparently, Kesha failed to realize that except for law enforcement, the military and various federal agencies, government doesn’t “give” guns to anyone.  And even those weapons are issued on an as needed basis.  The rest of us purchase them while following a strict set of rules.

So who, exactly, does Kesha think the government “gives” guns to?  And who does she think she is to claim that she has the power to decide who gets them?

Of course, the goal of the left is to destroy the American Republic, which naturally requires draconian gun control.

“Elections matter,” said astronaut Mark Kelly, urging those in the crowd to push for gun control.

He’s right about that — they do matter, and if Democrats win in November, it’ll mean the end of the right to keep and bear arms, which is why they must all be soundly defeated.
