FTA: One, the political discourse in this nation has devolved into a pure hatred…the vast majority of this hateful rhetoric comes directly from the political left. As the Democrat party has shifted further and further left and embraced the violent wing of its party as their own, antifa, black lives matter, the Soros wing, etc, the hatred increases.
Two, that hatred and rhetoric has found a home in the mainstream media and a 24-hour news cycle that day after day, foments anger and pure hatred designed to drive Americans apart. Sadly, it has worked. A hate filled political left, combined with a 24-hour drumbeat of political hostility driving a loathing divisiveness is at the root of this type of behavior, as we saw for example in Alexandria Virginia. That hate has unhinged the extreme… on both sides. The media knows it and is openly feeding it. For years I have told you that the mainstream media is the single most dangerous entity this nation faces––with its constant, constant drumbeat of hate filled political rhetoric, particularly now with Trump in office, from a left that has embraced it as part of its discourse combined with a like-minded and philosophically sympathetic media in a 24- hour media environment, you have disaster…possible from both sides…the radical left and the radical right, both built on a platform of division. This type of activity is predictable and unavoidable in a free nation of 320 million Americans some of whom, on both sides, are unhinged…pushed to the edge by this unending 24-hour cycle…and not just from the media but also our entertainment industry, comedians, you know the late night cry-baby tv hosts, actors, producers, and hollywood in general.
Following here are the raw notes, grammatical errors and all, that I made yesterday as I was contemplating my opening remarks for last nights Monster broadcast heard in hundreds of cities across the country. From time to time, I’ll make notes to begin my thought process on the direction of the show, particularly when a huge event dictates the programs full attention. I’ll usually write whatever comes to mind, right off the cuff, just some notes to put me on the right course. Yesterdays focus was on not having to defend myself or you, as gun owners simply because another madman used a gun to commit mass murder. The actual opening segment stayed pretty close to these notes.

Within minutes of todays breaking news out of Texas, I was called to do a television appearance on Good Morning Britain within one hour of this program closing, the UK version of Good Morning America…it took about ten minutes for them to reach out to me. I am unable to do so because of my personal schedule tomorrow, the point being that the media frenzy around the world is now in high gear…again…and some of that media is asking me to join them to defend the right to bear arms. You know what? I don’t have to defend a damn thing. Some of you may be expecting me to open this huge radio program by playing defense because of the actions of another sick madman.
I mean, this is Armed American Radio after all and I’m here to defend your right to bear arms.
While that is true, the left wants you to believe that by virtue of the fact that you are simply a gun owner, you are directly complicit in the actions of evil. That somehow because we are lawfully armed Americans that we bear responsibility for the actions of evil and must defend our gun ownership.
