Michael Moore Provides A Typical Progressive Christmas Rant


Progressives like Moore really can’t help themselves (via Weasel Zippers)

Celebrating the Prince of Peace in the Land of Guns

These gun massacres aren’t going to end any time soon.

I’m sorry to say this. But deep down we both know it’s true. That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t keep pushing forward – after all, the momentum is on our side. I know all of us – including me – would love to see the president and Congress enact stronger gun laws. We need a ban on automatic AND semiautomatic weapons and magazine clips that hold more than 7 bullets. We need better background checks and more mental health services. We need to regulate the ammo, too. [...]

We are a country whose leaders officially sanction and carry out acts of violence as a means to often an immoral end. We invade countries who didn’t attack us. We’re currently using drones in a half-dozen countries, often killing civilians.

This probably shouldn’t come as a surprise to us as we are a nation founded on genocide and built on the backs of slaves. We slaughtered 600,000 of each other in a civil war. We “tamed the Wild West with a six-shooter,” and we rape and beat and kill our women without mercy and at a staggering rate: every three hours a women is murdered in the USA (half the time by an ex or a current); every three minutes a woman is raped in the USA; and every 15 seconds a woman is beaten in the USA.

Wait, wait, wait. You mean people used guns in an attempt to stop an injustice known as slavery? Perhaps Michael would have preferred that the Civil War was never fought, and Blacks left as slaves. As for women, I sent out some tweets last week

Something to think about. That CDC study (which appears to come from an outside group, just published by CDC) is here.

Oh, and let’s not forget that Michael Moore has used armed bodyguards.
