Liberal Host Thom Hartmann Says
‘Second Amendment Was Passed
To Protect Slavery’

Mediaite, by Tommy Christopher

Original Article

Posted By:JoElla Bee, 1/18/2013 5:32:51 PM

It’s a popular talking point with conservatives that the purpose of the Second Amendment is to act as a check on a tyrannical government, our own government. According to liberal radio and TV host Thom Hartman, though, the original purpose of the amendment was to act as a check on rebellious slaves, which might just put a kink in Gun Appreciation Day founder Larry Ward‘s theory about Martin Luther King. On Hartmann’s The Big Picture with Thom Hartmann, Hartmann laid it out. “Gun-crazy America is arming up,” he said. ”While Vice President Biden and his gun task force think of

Ironically, the TRUTH is gun control laws was enacted in the South and New York City (see the Sullivan Act) to prevent former slaves and (in NY´s case) immigrants from exercising their Second Amendment-protected rights.

This was an article posted on "Truthout" and Lcom deleted it -- unapproved news source, I assume.

The Thom Hartmann article is so stupid, it´s pure Howard Zinn history rewriting. Some grabs of data that have absolutely no link to the 2nd Amendment, but this guy puts them together in a pompous manner so a bunch of posters act like he´s accomplished some scholarly act. Unbelievable.

Even if it was, which it isn´t, I could care less. It has nothing to do with what is happening now and that is the Marxist/Socialist/Liberation Theology Islamic jihadist enemies of the U.S. are in full battle mode and must be defeated, repeat: must be defeated: Bow-Boy, Hollowheads, the radical liberal minority sychophants Pee-Low-See and Reid, Feinstein, Bloomberg and all their liberal Marxist like.

Defeated.

2nd post, sorry. If people take a few moments to read the actual writings of the founders -- and the Federalist Papers -- they´ll know that this is one of the Democrats´ Big Lies.

No doubt the GOP will allow such characterizations to stand without countering them.

Without God, men´s minds goes off into a million different directions, each thought just as "valid" as the other. Example: Pilate said, "what is truth?". They simply cannot know what is the truth about anything. This individual´s thinking is no different than any other´s who reject the Light of the World.

This type of thing can either be dealt with, and put into proper perspective, or "young skulls full of mush", and others, will be indoctrinated by leftists into believing their twisted version of history.

The counterculturists of the 1960s and 70s were crazies too, but they are running the country today. That is, in large part, because the "silent majority" saw the stupidity for what it was and never believed that it would displace common sense.

After all, Adam and Eve walked in the paradise of the Garden of Eden with God, but Satan, in the form of a serpent, added one little word to the truth that God had told them. ["Thou shalt (not) surely die."]
Eve believed Satan. She persuaded Adam. They didn´t die immediately, but ... .

Point: People will believe the lies of the devil even when they have been told the truth by God.

What´s to make us think they won´t continue to believe the lies of leftists, if the truth isn´t pointed out to them - no matter how obvious that truth may seem to us?

With a bitter war against the British fresh in their minds, remembrance of the sacrifices made by regular citizens to defeat the Redcoats of King George..thinking back to the crushing control of King George..the Founders knew they had to protect future citizens of the United States and wrote the 2nd amendment from a Government gone wild.

More fake history. Lefist fascists of course make up lies that are exactly opposite of the truth.

Gun control came about after the Civil War to prevent freed slaves from owning weapons for self protection against the Klan and such. Whites were automatically exempted by law enforcement up until the 40s and 50s when the laws began to be slowly applied to whites, too.

The NRA needs to get some of their Civil Rights partners (Roy Innis at CORE a long time NRA LEADER) to make some commercials pointing this out across the board, maybe focussing on black oriented media by preference to squelch this lie ASAP. NRA is totally colorblind. Gun rights are civil rights.

The passage quoted is wildly out of context. A slave insurrection is merely an example, a thought experiment, about domestic insurrection, not the driving and sole reason for militias. And the passage isn´t even talking about the Second Amendment, it´s talking about who has the duty to call out the militia to suppress domestic insurrections -- the federal government or the individual state. To connect the (non-existent) dots from slave insurrection to militias to Second Amendment is outrageous.

HUNTSVILLE, Texas — A serial killer was put to death Thursday in Texas after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected his lawyers’ demand that the state release information about where it gets its lethal injection drug. Tommy Lynn Sells, 49, was the first inmate to be injected with a dose of newly replenished pentobarbital that Texas prison officials obtained to replace an expired supply of the powerful sedative. Sells declined to give a statement. As the drug began flowing into his arms inside the death chamber in Huntsville, Sells took a few breaths, his eyes closed and he began to snore.

The young girl was told by a school lunchroom supervisor that her actions were wrong. The girl’s father, Marcos Perez, is outraged to the point where he is considering homeschooling his child. Today, the Liberty Institute sent a letter to the school administrators demanding they stop allowing religious discrimination, which is in violation of not only state, but federal law.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle.

The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle.
