Meghan McCain made an unceremonious return to The View by declaring that gun owners would “resort to violence” if their gun rights were to be restricted (nothing like “good guys with guns, huh?). This is terrifying, brought to us by RawStory from The View: “The AR-15 is by far the most popular gun in America, by far,” McCain told her co-hosts. “I was just in middle-of-nowhere Wyoming, (and) if you’re talking about taking people’s guns from them, there’s going to be a lot of violence.” Ironically, the type of people who resort to violence if angry about the law are precisely the same people who should not own firearms. What happened to needing a gun to protect one’s family? I guess they believe guns may properly used to protect one’s own view of what the law should be. I was not the only one who saw the insane juxtaposition of such a claim: So your saying “responsible” law abiding gun owners would turn to violence and disobey a law??? — Matthew Dowd (@matthewjdowd) September 4, 2019 Yes, that appears to be exactly what she is saying. So, a “good guy with a gun” is only a “good guy” so long as he’s happy with the laws. There is a word for that type of guy, but it’s escaping me … criminal seems to be close. Were that our only problem. McCain’s husband, some nut named Ben Domenech, also believes he sits above both Congress and the Supreme Court, in determining the exact meaning of the Bill of Rights, especially the rights imbued by the Second Amendment. “Yes, you fake conservative dipsh*t, people tend to fight back when you disrespect the Bill of Rights and try to illegally take their guns,” Domenech tweeted. “The Black Panthers did it in California when Reagan tried. We would do it too.” See? Even if Congress passed a law, even if the president signed the law, and even if the Supreme Court upheld the law, Meghan McCain’s non-fake, non-dipshit, husband has already determined it would, regardless, be “illegal” and he would be within his rights to fight using those same guns. I have no idea what the Black Panthers have to do with anything, other to invoke black people in a struggle. On this, be clear. When it comes to guns, these people do not believe any law could apply to them. They will not recognize the law, no matter how valid. They have given unto themselves their own “right” and will not be giving it up to any government. With respect to guns, they are above the government, above the very idea of democracy. This is the end-result of a gun industry campaign to equate guns to “freedom.” These people will shoot, and kill – according to McCain and husband – if “we the people” determine we want the laws changed. There is a word for people who invoke terror in the name of their personal belief, threatening violence against those who disagree. We call them terrorists. And make no mistake, these terrorists base their beliefs in large part because of their race. How long do you think a group of young black men would last “open carrying” their AR-15s to a “Black Power” rally. How long do you think the Meghan McCain’s of the world […]
(Above: Er…whaaaa?) Meghan McCain is dad er… mad as hell and all hot and fathered er… bothered and she’s not gonna take it anymore! Vanity Fair “Meghan McCain is sad. For months now, she’s been calling Muslim congresswoman Ilhan Omar an anti-American Jew-hater, going so far as to blame Omar’s rhetoric about Israel for tragedies like an April shooting at a San Diego synagogue. Obviously, all of her comments had a clear undercurrent of bigotry to them. But then Donald Trump had to go and make the undercurrent of bigotry surrounding Omar completely unambiguous, and now McCain feels like she can’t attack the Minnesota lawmaker without being labeled a racist. It’s not fair! “Everyone at this table, and I think, people that watch this show or have ever seen the dumpster fire of my interview with Seth Meyers, know I have been one of Ilhan Omar’s most vocal critics regarding Israel, regarding some of her comments I and others interpreted as anti-Semitic,” McCain said on The View Thursday. (Said dumpster fire referred to a May appearance on Late Night, in which Meyers called McCain out for her statements about Omar, leading McCain’s husband to call the host an “untalented piece of shit who only has his job because he regularly gargled Lorne Michaels’s balls.”) McCain reveled in the role of anti-Omar truth-teller, at least until Trump tweeted that the Minnesota congresswoman—as well as Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib—should “go back” to the countries they came from. “The problem right now,” McCain said to her gal pals on The View, “is you’re taking away my agency to criticize her policy.” You know what else will take away your agency to criticize her policy, Megs? You and the Orange Orifice getting her killed for having the nerve to criticize Israel’s policy of dispossessing Palestine and calling Trump out for being the lying, racist POS he is… But this is all about you, isn’t it? Isn’t everything? Please follow me on Twitter @durrati
Sometimes people in Washington get it plain wrong!
If conservatives support police killing citizens without justification, climate denial, fact denial, science denial, racist and misogynistic behavior, or a litany of other absurd points of view about numerous important issues, we call them out.
