To: Senator Scott Jensen
From: Mitch Berg, Obstreporous Peasant
Back in 2016, you ran as a gun-friendly candidate. You gladly accepted the endorsement of the MN Gun Owners PAC.
And then you turned around in the 2018 session, when Everytown for Gun “Safety” started pumping money into the 2nd Congressional District, and stabbed you pro-human-rights supporters in the back.
And judging by this Facebook post, you don’t seem to get why what’s left of your “base” is upset with you today:
For the benefit of those not following along at home, the Senator is talking about this photo:
It was taken the opening day of the MN State Legislature, on Tuesday. It’s Jensen, spooning with a couple of suburban gun-grabber soccer moms from Moms Want Action.
And now, Senator Jensen, you’re upset that your real supporters – well, former supporters – are taking umbrage at you for cuddling up with the Criminal Safety movement.
No, it’s not you. It’s us, naturally…: “Mean spirited pushiness has halted discussion of important issues” you say. No – the illiteracy, cowardice and inherent bullying nature of the gun grabber movement has halted discussion, Senator Jensen.
You picked the wrong side.
No, seriously – remember Dario Anselmo? The Republican who spoke at the Moms Want Action rally last fall, trying to ingratiate himself with the gun grabbers? Who went and endorsed an actual Democrat who wound up riding into office on a wave of out-of-state money that Anselmo never had the faintest shot at, anyway?
Ringing any bells, Senator?
That is all.
