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!).
he first two months of Obamacare created a rare convergence between supporters and opponents of the law: Everyone agreed that the rollout was a disaster. The consensus reached all the way up to President Obama himself, who went so far as to list the "poor execution on my administration’s part" alongside the GOP´s "reckless shutdown" as reasons that "frustrations with Washington are at an all-time high." It was like an Obamacare miracle. But with HealthCare.gov improving, the convergence is ending. For Obamacare´s supporters, the IT problems really were IT problems. Now that the Web site is working the law will
Kanye West speaking with SaturdayNightOnline.com host Garrett, West Saturday night “Like, I’m just giving of my body on the stage; I’m putting my life at risk, literally!” “When I think about when I’m on the ‘Can’t Tell Me Nothing,’ and ‘Coldest Winter’ moment, like that mountain goes really, really high. And if I slipped… You never know. And I think about it. I think about my family and I’m like, wow, this is like being a police officer or something, in war or something.”
Kevin Kolbye, Assistant Special Agent in Charge for the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Dallas, served as the on-scene commander for the Benghazi investigation but has not yet testified before Congress about what he knows. Republican Congressman Frank Wolf wants to know why. Kolbye addressed the GovSec West Conference in Dallas in late November and discussed various aspects of the Benghazi investigation with attendees. During his presentation, Kolbye noted that, contrary to initial reports, FBI assets were on the scene in Benghazi within a few days after the attack. Breitbart News reported that story when it broke.
On Sunday, a media reporter for the Washington Post said he believed that MSNBC had fired host Martin Bashir because conservatives were relentless and did not quit in hammering Bashir and MSNBC for Bashir´s suggestion that someone should urinate and defecate in the mouth of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. Bashir resigned from MSNBC last week, nearly a month after he made his scripted remarks on his MSNBC program. Appearing on CNN´s Reliable Sources with host Brian Stelter, the Post´s Paul Farhi said "the outrage was from the right, the idea that Sarah Palin and, by the way, a woman, obviously was
Firebrand Texas Republican Rep. Steve Stockman on Monday mounted a surprise primary challenge to Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), setting the stage for the latest potentially explosive battle between a tea party darling and an incumbent firmly backed by the GOP establishment. Stockman, a far-right conservative who has called for the president’s impeachment, filed for the seat minutes before the 6 p.m. local deadline, confirmed Spencer Yeldell, a spokesman for the Republican Party of Texas. Cornyn — with cash-on-hand clocking in at nearly $7 million — is still the heavy favorite, but Stockman’s entry into the race could force
On Monday, the National Journal reported that "documents filed by other groups show that two labor organizations, the International Union of Operating Engineers and the Laborers´ International Union of North America, directed a combined $400,000 to the Republican group [the Defending Main Street super PAC] in September and October." The Defending Main Street super PAC was organized at the end of 2012 by former Congressman Steve LaTourette (R-OH), and has very publicly declared war on the Tea Party. It is affiliated with and has offices at the same location as the Republican Main Street Project, which LaTourette currently
New York Republican Rep. Peter King, who has been vocal about his interest in running for president in 2016, won´t shy away from a fight with another tough-talking Northeastern politician. “You should ask Chris Christie if me being in the race disqualifies him," King told City & State when asked whether the New Jersey governor´s likely candidacy will preclude his own. King announced his interest in the race earlier this year but hasn´t yet made an official decision to enter, and many observers believe Christie´s candidacy would overshadow King´s, as they´re both tough-taking moderate Republicans from neighboring states. King has so far
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
