Tom Brokaw Compares Silence
On Gun Violence To Not
Speaking Out Against
Segregation In 1960s

Mediaite, by Andrew Kirell

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/17/2013 11:42:08 AM

Appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe today, NBC’s veteran newsman Tom Brokaw called for a “holistic” approach to addressing gun violence, and said that remaining silent on the issue is akin to not speaking out during racial segregation in pre-civil rights America. (Snip)“It reminds me a lot of what happened in the South in the 1960s during the civil rights movement,” Brokaw explained. “Good people stayed in their houses and didn’t speak up when there was carnage in the streets and the total violation of a fundamental rights of African-Americans as they marched in Selma, and they let

The silence is deafening with regard to the five hundred black youngsters murdered in Chicago.

What say you, Brokaw???

Is it not time to put the question before the liberals in the federal government? That question is, "How many Americans are you willing to kill in order to implement your vision of gun control?"

Um, Tommy, who was it exactly that stood in the way of the civil rights act? Who was it exactly that was firehosing people in the street? Who was it exactly that was setting fire to black churches? Admit that it was democrats and clean up your own house first. Start with the welfare dependency you created which is causing all of the inner city black deaths and then maybe we´ll listen to what you have to say. Or not.

He might want to see where Condi Rice speaks about her dad sitting on the porch with a shotgun to prevent the racists from attacking.

Or learn about why the 14th Amendment was passed to ensure that freedmen had access to weapons.

Someone needs to ask Tom Blowchow who exactly has prevented him from doing stories on the gun violence that´s happened every day in Chicago and New York and Detroit and Philidelphia and LA and etc, etc. for the last few decades!!!
The silence is on the part of Party hacks and knee-pad urinalists like Blowchow who won´t tell you that the problem in in democrat strongholds. Urinalists like Blowchow who will gladly pee on yer head and tell you it´s just raining.

Who´s being silent?

"I am 100% against gun violence!"

There I said it. Or in this case, typed it.

What he really is trying to do is equate those who don´t agree with his liberal point of view (e.g., further errosion of the 2nd amendment) with racists and klan members.

Take a hike, brokejaw.

Brokaw´s been part of a decades-long practice among the MSM to report every incident of gun violence they can scrape up, no matter how vague the details are, no matter how far away it might have occurred. (And to ignore every incident where someone lawfully exercising his/her Second Amendment rights prevented a violent crime from taking place.)

They never seem to note that a foreigner who commits a violent act here is an illegal immigrant, and they never seem to note that gun violence involved illegal guns. So gun ownership, itself, is at the root of all violence, all gun owners are threats to law-abiding citizens, and there is no moral distinction between legal or illegal...

Brokaw´s been a leader in this Leftwing propaganda machine for years. No surprise to find this latest excremental reflection by him.

Thanks Tom Brokaw, for providing more proof that journalism has devolved into the dumbest profession on our planet. Comparing attempted violations of our US Constitution rights to the civil rights movement is dumber than dirt.

This is pure propaganda and BS. Alot of the earliest gun control laws were expressly designed to keep blacks from ownin guns to fight back against the KKK. And if I was a black man confronted by a gang of sheet heads intent on my lynching I sure as heck would want more than a 10 round magazine!

Don´t know where you were back then Tom, but nobody was silent. Intergregation said my six year old had to get on a bus, travel from a surburban area across town to a ghetto to keep the gov happy. Needless to say, I had to pay for private school.

Trust me, Mrs King laughs all the way to the bank about her cheating husband becoming a martyr.

Man held on $1 million bail
in Friday shooting

A man was charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery in a Friday shooting that left a 40-year-old man in the Brainerd neighborhood with six gunshot wounds. Deontae C. Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S. May St., checking to see if his recycling bin was full when Jones approached the man and fired at him. The victim began running away and fell to the ground, said Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Naheda

The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters

Clearwater doctor unveils secrets of Shroud

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

WASHINGTON — IT’S weird to be jealous of your car. But I am. Men look at my car with such naked lust, their eyes devouring the curves and chrome, that I often feel as though I’m intruding on an intimate moment. Women like it, too. They sometimes grin and give it a thumbs up as it growls by, and one girlfriend fondly refers to it as “the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Goddess car.” But the icon evokes a special feeling in men. It’s the Proustian madeleine of cars, stirring old dreams and new. Guys sometimes follow in the American beauty’s

California Unemployment Holds

California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
