How could a governor be so stupid…

California Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom found something to blame for the mass shootings.

During an emergency meeting on gun violence, Newsom said that the conversation on mass shootings should focus on toxic masculinity.

“I do think that is missing in the national conversation,” Newsom said, according to HuffPost. “If there was anything more obvious, I don’t know what is, why it is that we’ve just come to accept that, that it’s been so normalized and sort of baked in, that it’s not even debated any longer. Why does it have to be, why is it men, dominantly, always?”

“And I think that goes deep to the issue of how we raise our boys to be men, goes deeply to values that we tend to hold dear — power, dominance and aggression, over empathy, care, collaboration,” he continued. “That is a deeper conversation — forgive me — a more difficult one to have, but I want to just introduce that into this debate.”

Newsom, and the leftists who agree with him, fail to understand that traits like aggression and dominance can be deeply important for young men, when correctly directed.

When you try to make men more like women, you don’t get less “toxic masculinity,” you get more.

Why? Because bad men don’t become good when they stop being men; they become good when they stop being bad. Aggression, violence, and unbridled ambition can’t be eliminated from the male psyche; they can only be harnessed. And when they are harnessed, they are tools for good, not for harm.

The same masculine traits that bring destruction also defeat tyranny. The traits that foster greed also build economies. The traits that drive men to take foolish risks also drive men to take heroic risks.

The answer to toxic masculinity isn’t less masculinity; it’s better masculinity. And we know what that looks like.

It’s a young man opening the door for a girl on their first date. It’s a father working long hours to provide for his family. It’s a soldier risking his life to defend his country.

The growing problem in today’s society isn’t that men are too masculine; it’s that they’re not masculine enough. When men embrace their masculinity in a way that is healthy and productive, they are leaders, warriors and heroes. When they deny their masculinity, they run away from responsibilities, leaving destruction and despair in their wake.

  1. Comments like this from Gov Newsome don’t surprise me he’s a pathetic excuse of a Gov he just does what his Aunt (Nancy Pelosi) tells him he is just another delusional Dem

  2. When we build the western section of the wall we need it run it straight up the eastern border of Kalifornia and don’t leave any doors or gates. We can’t risk being infected with Kalifornia Moonbat Libertardism.

  3. Jeez, I am tired of anybody in California that is supposedly a conservative that says they cannot get out. It is easy, move. How in the F can you live with a moron like Newsom in charge. He appears worse than Brown. Both of them. Young Brown was more of an idiot than old Brown. You people are DOOMED.

  5. SOLUTION TO GUN CONTROL:
    In 1865, a Democrat shot and killed Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States.
    In 1881, a left wing radical Democrat shot James Garfield, President of the United States – who later died from the wound. In 1963, a radical left wing socialist shot and killed John F. Kennedy, President of the United States.In 1975, a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at Gerald Ford, President of the United States. In 1983, a registered Democrat shot and wounded Ronald Reagan, President of the United States. In 1984, James Hubert, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 22 people in a McDonald’s restaurant. In 1986, Patrick Sherrill, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 15 people in an Oklahoma post office.In 1990, James Pough, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 10 people at a GMAC office. In 1991, George Hennard, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 23 people in a Luby’s cafeteria in Killeen, TX. In 1995, James Daniel Simpson, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 5 coworkers in a Texas laboratory. In 1999, Larry Asbrook, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 8 people at a church service. In 2001, a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at the White House in a failed attempt to kill George W. Bush, President of the US. In 2003, Douglas Williams, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 7 people at a Lockheed Martin plant. In 2007, a registered Democrat named Seung – Hui Cho, shot and killed 32 people in Virginia Tech. In 2010, a mentally ill registered Democrat named Jared Lee Loughner, shot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and killed 6 others. In 2011, a registered Democrat named James Holmes, went into a movie theater and shot and killed 12 people. In 2012, Andrew Engeldinger, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 7 people in Minneapolis. In 2013, a registered Democrat named Adam Lanza, shot and killed 26 people in a school in Newtown, CT. As recently as Sept 2013, an angry Democrat shot 12 at a Navy ship yard. Even more recently a disgrutled democrat shot a U.S congressman on a baseball field and he almost died. And now 2019 Ohio,California,NY,Texas demoRACISTS! Clearly, there is a problem with Democrats and guns. Not one NRA member, Tea Party member, or Republican conservative was involved in any of these shootings and murders. SOLUTION: It should be illegal for Democrats to own guns. We don’t need gun control, we need Democrat control. Guns don’t kill people, Democrats do!

  6. I didn’t think they could do any worse than Brown. I was mistaken. This guy has been a nut job all his life and you must be without a clue if you don’t know it. To elect him governor is like putting the inmates in control of the asylum. Apparently people from CA really are that stupid. They send us, the US, the worst possible people to represent them in Congress. That hurts us all not just the crazies on the left coast.

  7. Newsom has always been a nut job but I didn’t think he was a total NUT JOB! To bad on my end. Toxic masculinity? It need to be “looked into”? THIS IS ANOTHER BS PHRASE, NEWSOM! A new phrase to throw an element of fear into weak people who might believe this for some reason. This is a phrase like “white privilege”. There may be some whites that are privileged. There may be some blacks that are privileged. There may be some other races that are privileged, as well, but pay attention to where you are hearing this dribble! Pay attention to those spewing this kind of dribble, too. Is it a politician? Is it on the news? Who and where you hear this from is the key to this “Pandora’s Box”! It is fear mongering at its worst!

  8. The Pelosi family first screwed up Baltimore, then moved west ><1959 never got another Republican leaning Mayor or city council after Pelosi's father left office… the 'Die' was set, the city was doomed.. then in California……..
