Former Democrat President Bill Clinton Warns Democrats Not to ‘Patronize’ and Trivialize Gun Owners

 

Will President Barack Obama take Bill Clinton’s advice not to patronize the passionate supporters of your opponents by looking down your nose at them?

Many Democrats consider former President the voice of reason and the elder statesman of their party. Even with his sordid past and numerous moral indiscretions, Bill Clinton is considered the wild card of the party and the reason why Barack Obama won reelection. During the 2012 Democrat national convention Clinton stated that not even he could have fixed the economy that Obama inherited, which of course was a bold face lie, but in doing so paved the way for an Obama victory. Now the voice of the Democrat party Bill Clinton is warning Democrats not to underestimate the passions that gun control stirs among Americans. Clinton told Democrats not to trivialize them and “Do not patronize the passionate supporters of your opponents by looking down your nose at them.”

Former President Bill Clinton warned a group of top Democratic donors at a private Saturday meeting not to underestimate the passions that gun control stirs among many Americans.

“Do not patronize the passionate supporters of your opponents by looking down your nose at them,” Clinton said.

“A lot of these people live in a world very different from the world lived in by the people proposing these things,” Clinton said. “I know because I come from this world.”

Clinton dedicated a substantial portion of his 40-minute address before a joint meeting of the Obama National Finance Committee and a group of business leaders to the issue of guns and gun control, saying that it was a test-case for President Barack Obama’s grass-roots movements. (POLITICO was given a transferable ticket by an invited member of the committee.)

But it is hard to imagine that Obama and Democrats will not act in a smug and arrogant manner when it comes to gun control. President Obama is a “community agitator” and divider, not one who governs  by consensus. They cared little of the American people when it came to Obamacare when they rammed the government control of health care down “We the People’s” throats. Then they saw that instead of being punished for their behavior, they were reelected. Barack Obama has already stated when it comes to the gun owner, they “cling to their guns and religion”. One can only imagine how understanding he will be of them after reelection and his efforts to push forth his liberal, anti-Second Amendment agenda. But as the PJ Tatler stated, “if there is one issue that can cut through party and even ideology, it is gun control and the passions that are raised when government feels it has the power to infringe on the rights of gun owners.”

Who said that Clinton stands with the president? In his closing remarks Bill Clinton seemed to be urging Democratic lawmakers to vote against the president:

Clinton closed his remarks with a warning to big Democratic donors that ultimately many Democratic lawmakers will be defeated if they choose to stand with the president.

“Do not be self-congratulatory about how brave you for being for this” gun control push, he said. “The only brave people are the people who are going to lose their jobs if they vote with you.”

      Clinton speaks as an expert on ‘gun control
      and passions that are raised’.
