Give us this day, our daily stupid ...
Larry Ward, chairman of Gun Appreciation Day, told CNN that if blacks had been given the “right to keep and bear arms” since the country’s inception, “perhaps slavery might not have been a chapter in our history.”
“The truth is – I think Martin Luther King would agree with me if he were alive today – that if African-Americans had been given the right to keep and bear arms from day one of the country’s founding, perhaps slavery might not have been a chapter in our history, and I believe wholeheartedly that it’s essential to our liberty,” Ward said.
Ok, it’s good that he’s all pro-2A and all.
holy flamiin shitbal CRIVENS!! some folks really need to think things out just a tiny bit before opening their mouths.
This was on CNN, in a bit of a debate segment. So naturally the anti-gun woman handed him his ass in a bucket. No kidding. Makes me wonder though ... did CNN bring him in precisely because he is this stupid?
Just pondering things.
Oh, and maybe I’m getting senile a couple decades ahead of time, but ... I’ve never heard of Gun Appreciation Day before this year. I remember National Ammo Day and National Buy A Gun Day (April 15th IIRC) both of which I think were started by Kim Dutoit and his minions (any number of which are members here too). And I know the government has more damn useless “Day” days to appreciate everything from ‘57 Chevys to hernia trusses ... but Gun Day somehow slipped under my radar. And they’ve already got a national chairman? Says who???
10 seconds of research: Yes, it is new. And probably poorly named ... diliberately? ... and thus perhaps a bit of astroturfing?? Anyone halfway intelligent would have called it Second Amendment Appreciation Day.
It always amazes me how many people imply that slavery is an American thing. Ya ya,the founders were hypocrits but if they hadn’t been we would still be a British colony struggling to make share on the crops going back to the empire.
You wanna see slavery,go to any Muslim country as its rampant and obvious and observable on any given day.
What was the topic again, I forgot?
