Taran Butler of Taran Tactical
This article was never published until now and came straight from the vault. I decided to publish it based upon something that I saw come through on my Facebook feed that needs to be addressed. That is from what I can see:
“Cognitive bias and bigotry is still alive and well in the Gun Game.”
See, the entire reason as to why we have the 2nd Amendment is to protect the 1st Amendment – which is your Right to Free Speech. Quite honestly, its appalling to see that Taran Butler of Taran Tactical feels the need to cherry pick which Constitutional Rights are more valuable than others. What’s even more damaging is that through his actions he demonstrated that he willfully violated Rochelle Hathaway’s decision to express her own position when it came to the 2nd Amendment. In doing so, he inadvertently discriminated on her as not only as a Citizen of the United States of America but as a woman.
What adds insult to injury is that now Taran Butler can now be considered a Triple Threat to the Gun Game. I’m able to say this because he has demonstrated not only a cognitive bias via the practice of bigotry towards people that may have a different perspective, belief or position other than his own. But he has chosen to trample upon the Constitutional Rights of his fellow Citizen. Thirdly, it appears that he does not support Women’s Rights in a particularly male dominated industry. This begs the following question:
“Does Taran Butler of Taran Tactical promote censorship?”
You would think given his Hollywood stature that he would have taken the time out to think about his decision to respond all the way through instead of impulsively demonstrating his lack of ability to not respond with a knee jerk reaction to something like this. But think about it. If this was a knee jerk reaction which is nothing more than a habit, then you have to ask yourself the following question:
“How many other people has Taran Butler silence through censorship?”
Seriously, give it some thought. If Taran Butler cannot respect his fellow Citizens Right to express their fundamental 1st Amendment Right, how can he fully respect his fellow Citizens Right to express the 2nd Amendment? The truth is he can’t – unless there’s a dollar sign attached to it.
It is my professional position that the aberrant behavior that Taran Butler demonstrated is the direct result of past actions that were left unchecked until now. This is very important to understand because if Taran Butler has the gall to identify himself as a “Patriot” that reveres the Constitution of the United States, then how can he in the same breath condemn a woman to censorship by restricting and outright violating her Right to Free Speech! Last time I check the 1st Amendment comes before the second one. Thus, you cannot have one without the other.
We should all be able as adults to grant each other mutual respect in our ever-increasing world of diversity. And it appears the Taran Butler of Taran Tactical failed to uphold his end of the bargain as an “Acting Patriot”. But then again, what do you expect of someone who’s under the spell of “Hollywood”. Remember, just because you see someone in a position of influence doesn’t mean they’re necessarily worthy of your time, attention and admiration. Keep in mind, people like Taran Butler of Taran Tactical will allow you to see what they want you to see. To Rochelle Hathaway, I sincerely apologize to you as a woman because you had to endure a violation of your Constitutional Rights as a Citizen of the United States of America.
