Liberal actor Danny Glover of the series Lethal Weapon probably wasn’t very popular in the room after delivering this line to a group of students at Texas A&M. “I don’t know if you know the genesis of the right to bear arms,” Glover said. “The Second Amendment comes from the right to protect themselves from slave revolts, and from uprisings by Native Americans, so a revolt from people who were stolen from their land or revolt from people whose land was stolen from, that’s what the genesis of the Second Amendment is.”
Comments: You couldn´t begin to make these things up. And you know there are idiots at that university who will completely believe him.
Danny Glover continues to play the Race Card! He is a Racist, pure and simple.
How sad that he does not understand the brilliance of our Founding Fathers which eventually led to the civil rights movement from which he now benefits.
His “reverse” Racism blinds him from seeing that America is NOT racist and that President Obama, Colin Powell, Coni Rice, and Supreme Court Judge Clarence Thomas are all examples that defy his pathetic point of view.
This is the second or third time I´ve heard this brought up this week, but I haven´t heard anybody attempt backing it up. Not that they´d need to, it has all the right elements: condemning the Founders, demonizing whites, demonizing gun owners, playing the race card against all those dumb, gun nut rednecks. This is the birth of a new ´´conventional wisdom´´ on the left.
Oh, and Glover is not a liberal, he´s a communist.
Poor Danny is certianly a product of public education. He has not only drunk the Kool-aide, he helped mix it.
Oh well, he was already on my list of actors not to watch anymore. I do watch "Lonesome Dove" though. The other great actors balance out this progressive. "Lethal Weapon" just don´t have a space on my shelf anymore.
I have seen a little bit of the support for this. It involves taking parts of statements made by people who opposed ratifying the Constitution before the Bill of Rights was introduced and combining them so as to make the part where they argued about the power of the federal government to free slaves under the wording of the Constitution combine with their argument about the flaws in the part where the state militias were regulated by Congress to conclude that they were one argument.
Of course what all of these people overlook is that gun control laws were first introduced to prevent blacks protecting themselves from white segregationists, such as the KKK.
Dopey Danny only studied Afro-centric History. Which skips the part that when the Constitution was written, we had just finished a very long and harrowing war against the most well equipped military in the world. The British built their vast empire by overtaking other countries and then shipping the wealth back to the Crown in England. They thought it was going to be business as usual in the Colonies. But since the beginning, the colonists came to a largely untamed land and needed weapons for protection and the procurement of meat. Americans knew how to use their weapons very well. When it came time to throw of the yoke of the Crown, they were able to overthrow the tyranny of a vastly more well equipped Red Coat military. THAT is why the writers of our Constitution put the Right to Bear Arms as the 2nd Amendment, right after the most important 1st Amendment. It was very apparent to them that citizens be able to protect themselves and rise up against the tyranny of government, foreign or domestic. Just as in reading the Holy Bible, one must unscrew their 21st century eyeballs and understand the mindset and customs of the time when what you´re reading was set to paper. Take your racist ruminations and stick ´em where the sun don´t shine, Danny.
And the beat goes on...Danny Glover, the same arrogant leftist jerk, whose total miscasting, in 1991, as Commander Frank "Dooke" Camparelli in "Flight of the Intruder," ruined the picture with his unrealistic, overly belligerent and hateful performance.
Glover´s "progessive" policies and the "black culture" have done more to decimate, enslave, and oustracize blacks from society than anything the largest and most evil KKK organization could ever dream of accomplishing.
- widespread abortion as birth control - welfare freeing up capital for drugs - black-on-black violence - welfare destroying personal initiative - fatherless households
If someone hated so much they wanted to wipe out an entire race of people, they couldn´t do any better than progessive ideology in a thousand years. Progressives have managed it in three generations.
Where was Mr. Glover on photo op Saturday, working to help "the community"? Guess he was busy cashing the check that Texas A & M paid him to shame America. It´s almost as if Bari whispered in his ear, "anytime you can enhance the race card and help me, go for it". Mr. Glover answered, "yes Mr. Preezy".
Exactly opposite the truth. Gun control laws started after the Civil War to prevent freed slaves from being armed against KKK violence. They were never enforced against whites until the 40s and 50s when the original purpose was fading from memory.
2nd Amendment protects every honest citizen, including blacks. Gun control endangers honest citizens.
Blacks are confused because so much crime today is perpetrated by black criminals. Anyone, of any race, defending themselves from a criminal is much more likely to shoot a black than a white. Obviously this is racist (sarcasm!).
Barack Obama delivered a statement on the passing of Nelson Mandela yesterday. During his speech he told about his first public speech on apartheid at Occidental College. “I am one of the countless millions who drew inspiration from Nelson Mandela’s life. My very first political action, the first thing I ever did that involved an issue or a policy or politics, was a protest against apartheid. I studied his words and his writings.” But, Barack Obama forgot to mention that his speech at Occidental was sponsored by Marxists and Weatherman terrorists. Barack Obama’s first public speech was at an Occidental College event
Rep. Matt Cartwright, a member of President Obama´s Obamacare "strike team," says it´s a "good thing" that people are losing their old health care plans: "Because a lot of those people, they did have policies that didn´t meet the minimum standards. That´s just not a theoretical discussion. There´s a reason you have minimum standards. There are people out there who have insurance that´s really an illusion of coverage. They have immense deductibles, they have annual and lifetime caps. There´s so many people out there with what I call phony insurance policies and the fact that they´re going to lose those
Fresh off his interview with President Barack Obama, MSNBC host Chris Matthews appeared on Now with Alex Wagner to review what the president said and to express his thoughts on the passing of former South African President Nelson Mandela. Matthews linked the GOP to South Africa’s white apartheid advocates and declared that those who facilitated the transition to Mandela’s presidency were more patriotic and had greater regard for their country than the Republicans in Congress. Matthews acknowledged a point that Rev. Al Sharpton had made earlier in this broadcast where he noted that the last apartheid president, F.W. de Klerk, recognized
The Obama administration knew as early as August that the small-business portal on healthcare.gov would not be ready by the Oct. 1 launch, but delayed admitting those problems until Nov. 27, according to documents released by House Republicans on Friday. In one colorful email exchange in mid-August, Henry Chao, the administration official charged with the development of the online insurance marketplaces, expressed frustration with delays from the private contractor working on the website. When the contractor suggested a new date of Nov. 15 for the launch of the small-business portal of the website, Chao bluntly asked: “Can we sign this
The White House dismissed a report suggesting that President Obama and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius did not meet ahead of the botched rollout of Obamacare. Obama press secretary Jay Carney said the claim was based on a “ridiculously false premise.” “Kathleen Sebelius comes frequently and she meets frequently with the president,” he said. “She’s here a lot and meets with the president with regularity.” “It’s safe to say Secretary Sebelius spent a lot of time here,” he added, noting the administration’s focus on health care reform. The report from Politico Magazine noted that a Government Accountability Institute analysis of the president’s
There was a tale of two Christmases on TV last night. Over at NBC, Carrie Underwood led the cast of “Sound of Music Live!” in a joyous rendition of the Julie Andrews classic. While no one involved in the production is likely to win an Emmy anytime soon, the singing was flawless and it was a squeaky clean program that lived up to its “TV G” rating. Over at Fox it was another story. Glee’s “Previously Unaired Christmas” should have stayed true to its name and remained a lost script, considering it was complete with a bisexual Santa, transgender Virgin
Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz laughingly called it a “riot” that the GOP would be schooling its members on how to better appeal to women voters. House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said at his weekly press conference yesterday that he believes his caucus is making progress on that front. “Well, I try to get them to be a little more sensitive. You know? You look around the Congress, there are a lot more females in the Democratic caucus than there are in the Republican caucus,” Boehner said. “And, you know, some of our members just aren’t as sensitive
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
