Geraldo Rivera says that
AR-15 owners have ‘small penises’

Original Article

Posted By: M2, 9/4/2019 8:57:05 AM

Fox News correspondent Geraldo Rivera accused AR-15 rifle owners of using the gun to compensate for small penis size. Responding to comedian Sarah Silverman's tweet that mocked hunters for possessing similar insecurities, Rivera said, "AR15 are the symptom of small penises." (tweet) Claiming "their products are used for their only intended purpose: to mimic military assault weapons to kill and maim people," Rivera had said earlier that companies manufacturing AR-15 rifles should be sued for damages, much like opioid makers and tobacco companies.


I guess he would know...

He was on The Five yesterday substituting for Williams and mentioned that he owned (or did own) a 75 foot yacht. Wonder what he's compensating for?

Geraldo, the southbound end of a northbound horse, is projecting like mad. Whenever he appears on Fox, I change the channel, even when he's on with Sean Hannity and Dan Bongino. Some people I just will not watch.

When Geraldo’s mohel was interviewed, he said, “Ah yes, Geraldo’s poor little putz. I did it. I’m sorry. I had too much Manischewitz at the bris. But I sent him a mitzvah, an AR-15, to make up for it.”

You know what Gerry? We are supposed to have the ability to kill people; please read the US constitution, Federalist papers, writings of Madison, Adams, Jefferson. You know why Gerry? Because people like you who support the most destructive force known to humankind are dangerous and would thorough your own ignorance and hubris unleash the forces of evil on the rest of us, it's been done before they call it history. Once again the left resorts to psychoanalysis rather than debate. Do your homework Gerry. At least get a grip on the position and arguments of our founders before claiming to be superior to them. Yea that's exactly what you are doing, you are as phony as the Wizard of Oz and Capone's vault. Yes Gerry guns can kill and that's why we refuse to give big brother a monopoly on the use of therm. Comprende?

Geraldo has a small brain, but it is at least big enough for him to know that he has to have armed guards when he is out and about. Geraldo is one of the reasons I no longer watch or listen to Fox News. There's only so much, "You are too stupid to live!" that I can take from talking heads.

One other thing: What Geraldo said tells me that he knows the Left is going to lose on gun control. Why else would he be so angry that he makes an unfortunate reference to his own shortcomings? Not only will the Left lose--they will shed congressional representatives and senators if they lean too heavily on us law abiding citizens and try to take away our weapons.

His historic European military-style mustache compensates for masculine insecurity and maybe a smallish putz, too. Anyway, the civilian AR-15 has become the most popular selling sporting rifle of its time. It is used by no military force anywhere because it does not meet the requirements of combat. Slow semiautomatic fire doesn't work when the enemy shoots back. Yes, many of us hunt with it, and many more target shoot.

Ever since ole 'Jerry Rivers' changed his name; his career has been a compilation of screw-ups! His vaunted expose of Al Capone's Safe/Tomb(?) was just like a Baby Ruth in a Public Swimming Pool... May have been the high point of his career reportage. His is a classic case of someone you'd like to buy for what they are worth, and sell for what they Think they are worth. Truly, a career built on Hyped-Blather, and Hot Air.

Geraldo with a small brain is the same as Geraldo with a small penis. More importantly some of us who own firearms, of which one is an AR 15, do NOT have penises. We possess vagnias and we are damn proud of it. We celebrate the real women, and cherish real men. And we have been trained, and possess conceal carry permits. Take a hike Geraldo. Known you since your old tv days. Little man syndrome. Among other things.

I have two AR-15's- Stripped down for bells, no whistles, no electronics. Just iron sights and extra large, 30 rnd magazines. One for me and one for the wife (who can't even pick one up now). And you would have to ask her about penile size on her husband. But, the important thing is, i still remember how to move, how to deploy, how to load and most importantly, how to pull that trigger. Geraldo is dead to me and has been for a very long time... as since Desert Storm I when he claimed to be reporting from a combat zone and wasn't. Instead he was in the parking lot of a Rihad hotel.

What social institutions have the most immediate and strongest impact on a child’s development and well-being? According to researchers for the Pew Charitable Trust’s Economic Mobility Project, it’s the child’s family circumstances, with schools ranking as the second-most important factor. In the U.S., family circumstances and schools are closely linked, because most cities and counties link schooling to housing. The extent to which families can select schools is largely determined by the extent to which they can afford to select their neighborhood.

A group seeking to stop a new law that would allow people in Oklahoma to openly carry firearms without training or a background check is acknowledging they fell short of the number of signatures needed for a statewide vote on the issue. In a court filing on Thursday, an attorney for the group estimates they gathered between 30,000 and 50,000 signatures. They would have needed nearly 60,000 signatures from registered voters to qualify the question the ballot. Attorney Brian Ted Jones says one reason for the uncertainty is because supporters were dropping off signatures right up until Monday’s 5 p.m. deadline. Led by Democratic state Rep.

In the suit, Rep.

That organization, Campaign for America, filed bogus ethics complaints with the Office of Congressional Ethics to sideline Nunes as he investigated Fusion GPS’s role in the false claims that President Donald Trump treasonously colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election from Hillary Clinton.

It’s time to think about the Roman empire again. But not the part of its history that usually commands attention in the United States: the long, sad path of Decline and Fall. It’s what happened later that deserves our curiosity. As a reminder, in 476 a.d., a barbarian general named Odoacer overthrew the legitimate emperor of the Western empire, Romulus Augustulus, who thus became the last of the emperors to rule from Italy. The Eastern empire, ruled from Constantinople, chugged along for many more centuries. But the Roman progression—from republic to empire to ruin—has played an outsize role in tragic imagination about the United States.

Instead of admitting they were wrong about President Donald Trump, the #NeverTrump nitwit brigade is doubling down on stupid. Is it simply that they are too stubborn to acknowledge that despite their misgivings during campaign season, Trump is turning out to be the president they have been writing, lecturing, and think-tanking about for their entire careers? Or are they bitter because they are now on the outside looking in, relegated to interviews with journalistic lightweights like Brian Stelter at CNN or Chris Hayes at MSNBC rather than appearing on Fox News opinion shows with much higher ratings and appeal? Many of the names are familiar to longtime conservatives.

The White House briefing room has many functions: a storage space for tripods and camera gear, a backdrop for visitor photos, a temporary workspace for journalists without a desk. What it is not, at least since March 11, is a venue for President Trump’s press secretary to brief reporters on administration policies. Next week will mark six months since the last White House “daily” briefing, another erosion of transparency and democracy under Trump or a sad indictment of the “fake news” media’s incivility, depending on your view. "The reason Sarah Sanders does not go to the 'podium' much anymore is that the press covers her so rudely & inaccurately,

Earlier today Walmart CEO Doug McMillon officially announced a number of firearms and ammunition will no longer be sold at stores nationwide. The statement was quite incoherent, but here it is. Here is the @WalmartInc press release making the announcement about discontinuing ammunition sales. The CEO's description of ammunition and firearms is bizarrely incoherent. Great to know they put zero effort into learning about the products they sell. — Stephen Gutowski (@StephenGutowski) September 3, 2019 Just last month an armed citizen became a hero after stopping a mass shooting at a Walmart in Missouri. From local NBC 25 News:

Because Sanders claims mass abortions will limit climate change.Sanders made the assertions at the CNN townhall discussing the “climate crisis.” A female teacher asked the following question: “Human population growth has more than doubled in the past 50 years. The planet cannot sustain this growth. I realize this is a poisonous topic for politicians, but it’s crucial to face.

Former Vice President Joe Biden told a CNN town hall on climate change Wednesday night that he endorses high-speed rail as a way to "take millions of vehicles off the road.""Everything is incremental," Biden said. For example, you talked earlier about transportation. I've been pushing really hard for mass transit and for rail. We can take millions of vehicles off the road if we had high-speed rail. I've been a champion of that for the last 25 years. We know the corridors where we could do that. It would literally take millions of vehicles off the road. But you have to have a rail system that

2020 Democrat hopeful Joe Biden told “The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert Wednesday night that he would nominate his former ‘boss’ Barack Obama to the US Supreme Court.“Would you appoint him [Obama] to the Supreme Court?” Colbert asked Biden.“Hell…yes!” Biden said with a creepy grin on his face. “I don’t think he’d do it but…he’s fully qualified.”Biden’s eye filled with blood on Wednesday evening during a CNN climate

In his book The Art of the Deal, President Donald Trump described his communication style as "truthful hyperbole." Hyperbole, sure. Truthful, questionable. Take Trump's recent speech in Pennsylvania where he declared that his tariffs had turned things around for the domestic steel industry. He also claimed the unratified United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement—USMCA or the new NAFTA—and his steep Chinese tariffs would also bring jobs back to the United States. Are the Trump trade policies bringing about a manufacturing revival?

The pope's remarks came after journalist Nicolas Seneze presented his book about conservative critics of the papacy, according to Crux. Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni clarified after that "in an informal context the pope wanted to say that he always considers criticisms an honor, particularly when it comes from important thinkers and, in this case, of an important nation."

The United States is now ranked among the world's worst places to move to, due to rapidly increasing costs of living, health care and basic education. A new survey released this week of more than 20,000 expatriates representing 182 nationalities used five overall pillars of criteria, 48 separate factors and 17 subcategories to rank countries.

Pop icon Barbra Streisand has declared that the Electoral College, a system widely seen as the bedrock of the U.S constitution and its democratic principles, represents an “assault on our democratic principles.” Speaking to The Washington Post for an article on what the U.S. Constitution represents to herself as well as other progressive figures such as Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Streisand described the system as “antiquated” and advocated replacing it with a system that allows the winner of the popular vote to win the election.
