An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Even with the murders that have already occurred, Americans are not paying enough attention to the frightening connection between the right-wing hate-mongers who continue to slither among us and the gun crazies who believe a well-aimed bullet is the ticket to all their dreams.
The hate and fear trash like this clown are trying to push off on the “right-wing” is just mind boggling. What he doesn’t want you to know….the people who murdered the baby killer, the security guard, and the U.S. soldier were plain out crazy. Period! Was the Muslim who murdered the young hero a “right-wing hate-monger”?
I hope I’m wrong, but I can’t help feeling as if the murder at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington and the assassination of the abortion doctor in Wichita, Kan., and the slaying of three police officers in Pittsburgh — all of them right-wing, hate-driven attacks — were just the beginning and that worse is to come.
Oh, wait a minute….he didn’t mention the Islamonazi, did he? Hmmm…. Wonder why?
As if the wackos weren’t dangerous enough to begin with, the fuel to further inflame them is available in the over-the-top rhetoric of the National Rifle Association, which has relentlessly pounded the bogus theme that Barack Obama is planning to take away people’s guns. The group’s anti-Obama Web site is called gunbanobama.com.
Look at the site. Read the information there. The recent entries are about Sotomayor. The site has been up long before the election, and this bozo just now noticed it? Slow aren’t ya bubba! But I wouldn’t say it’s “over the top rhetoric”. I’d say the NRA sees The ONE for what he is….an abomination!
While the N.R.A. is not advocating violence, it shouldn’t take more than a glance at the newspapers to understand why this is a message that the country could do without. James von Brunn, the man accused of using a rifle to shoot a guard to death at the Holocaust museum last week, was described by relatives, associates and the police as a virulent racist and anti-Semite.
How dare you! I am a member of the NRA. A LIFE member! I am neither a racist, nor an anti-semite! NEVER has the NRA EVER said ANYTHING that could be construed as ANY connection between the garbage like von Brunn and law abiding 2nd Amendment advocates!
There is no Obama gun ban on the way. Gun control advocates are, frankly, disappointed in the president’s unwillingness to move ahead on even the mildest of gun control measures.
What part of “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED” does this joker not get?
What’s important to grasp here is that this madness has nothing to do with hunting, which the politicians always claim to be defending, and everything to do with the use of firearms to resist policies and lawful government actions that some gun owners don’t like.
I haven’t seen ANY ‘lawful government actions’ in a very long time. All I’ve seen recently are the constant shredding of the U.S. Constitution by an administration that evidently has never even read it, or if it has, has NO understanding of it….along with a large chunk of the LSM (lame stream media), led by the NYTs.
There was a wave of right-wing craziness along those lines during the Clinton administration. Four federal agents were killed and 16 others wounded in 1993 during an attempt to serve a search warrant at the Branch Davidian compound near Waco, Tex., where a stockpile of illegal machine guns had been amassed. The subsequent siege ended disastrously with a raging fire in which scores of people were killed.
Dear Lord in Heaven! Is this guy so bleedin’ clueless? Or just selectively ignorant? That was a HUGE fiasco perpetrated by the Clinton administration, and if ol’ Bob had bothered to actually read ALL the reports, he would have known that, instead of blaming those on the right. And please, don’t forget, David Koresch was certifiably insane.
You cannot blame the N.R.A. for McVeigh’s actions. But you can sure blame it for ignoring the tragic lessons of history and continuing to spray gasoline into an environment that we have seen explode time and again.
Then why insert it into your screed?
It might be wise to pay closer attention than we’ve been paying. The first step should be to bring additional gun control back into the policy mix.
No, it would be wise to put ideas like your in the trash, where they belong! It’s people like YOU who are adding ‘fuel to the fire’, NOT groups like the NRA, or any other 2nd Amendment advocate group.
Oh, and while we’re on the topic….. Nice shootin’ Tex! (aka the Mr)
