People on the left are "bullies who try to intimidate their opponents" on such important issues as gun control and religious liberty, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal says, but conservatives should not be pushed around on those or other issues.
"They can’t argue with us — at least they can’t argue with us on the merits of the matter or ideas or even what the Founding Fathers intended — so they just bully," the Republican presidential hopeful told Breitbart News.
"If these large forces can conspire to crush the First Amendment, it won’t be long before they come after the Second Amendment," Jindal told firearms enthusiasts in prepared remarks delivered at the NRA meeting.
The governor told Breitbart that there is an "unholy alliance between the Hollywood elites, the liberal media, and in some cases, big business," and Republicans need to be sure "we are not the party of big business."
The 2016 presidential race, Jindal said, will be "an election between elitism and populism."
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Jindal said, is "clearly on the side of elitism," and Republicans "need a conservative candidate who understands that we need to stand on the side of the people and individual liberty rights."
