Newsmax Stooge Accuses Democrats of Using the ‘China Virus’ to Take Away Guns
Newsmax propagandist Greg Stinchfield on Thursday conjured up a new way to instill fear into gullible Americans, this time by claiming that Democrats in Congress want to use “China virus” vaccine mandates for airlines as a means to confiscate people’s guns.
“Well folks, welcome back. We know that one of the key components to enacting socialism in America is not just gun control, but gun confiscation. I have told you that much of the tyrannical response to the China virus is about the left’s quest to control you. Well, quietly, a plan is now underway to use vaccine mandates to take your guns. It sounded far-fetched until I actually looked at the scheme,” Stinchfield said.
“This month, congressional Democrats filed a bill, HR 4980,” he continued. “It calls for the United States to ‘direct the Secretary of Homeland Security to ensure that any individual traveling on a flight that departs from or arrives to an airport inside the United States or a territory of the United States is fully vaccinated against COVID-19, and for other purposes.'”
Nowhere in the legislation is there any mention of designating anti-vaxxers as terrorists, nor does it contain any language relating to guns. But the right loves to connect imaginary dots, and that is precisely what Stinchfield did next.
“So the left wants to make the vaccine mandatory to fly. So if you’re not vaccinated, what are they going to do? They’ve got to put you on the no-fly list with, of course, suspected terrorists because that’s how they view all of us. And what other bill are the Democrats trying to push?” he asked his audience.
“Since 2018 they’ve been going down this road — make anyone on the no-fly list a prohibited possessor of firearms, meaning you can’t own guns if you’re on that list. So you see what they’re doing? They’re exploiting the China virus vaccine push to confiscate your firearms,” Stinchfield proclaimed. “Republicans in Washington need to understand the length, the devious lengths, these Democrats will go to sneak through their anti-gun plans.”
