Skip to comments.What is with conservative talking heads caving in on the Second Amendment? Vanity
Posted on 12/18/2012 5:56:48 AM PST by Keith Brown
So yesterday I heard Michael Medved on the radio (noon pacific time) and he was beating up on "assault" weapons and gun makers who were only selling to make a "profit..."
He was literally going down the liberal anti gun line... then when a few callers took him to task on it he talked over them and hung up.
Then there was O' Reilly on Fox who started off with a good talking point, but then started whipping on the stuttering 2nd Amend foundation guy (Gottleib? .... not a good showing for him).
Neither so called conservative host voiced the affirmative uses of guns in contemporary times.
Its terrible to see the so called conservative voices folding under pressure...but to see them turn on a core values such as gun ownership does not bode well.
I hope others see more positive representations out there but I am not seeing it.
It seems we need to remind these folks who pays their bills.
Listen to Mark Levin. He is all you need.
Add Bill Bennett to the list. God Bless Mark Levin, but the other day I sortof cringed when he said if his items were confiscated, he would “sue”. I’m sorry Mark, but when that starts happening, effecting anything via the courts is long past a reality.
There are no conservative talk radio hosts..
only republican party hacks...
remember when OReily faked his “fight” with michael moore going onto his show? Once a tabloid reader always a tabloid reader.
ObaMugabe has used Newtown to unleash his cultural revolution and Red Guard to terrorize opponents. Extracting public confession to wrongful thinking was a common punishment.
That’s what we’re seeing.
I have, on my Facebook page...and granted...thats only a few hundred people...but it's my circle, begun an in-earnest education campaign about the 2nd.
Every chance I get I remind people: The 2nd is NOT for hunting. The 2nd is not for home or self protection. The 2nd exists to back up the 1st. The 1st amendment is there, not to allow you to make porn movies or so you don't have to look at the 10 Commandments posted in front of the Court House...but to voice concerns when the government goes beyond it's authority. The 2nd is there for when the government attempts to prohibit the 1st.
ALL of the Bill of Rights are aimed DIRECTLY at limiting Federal Power and empowering the individual. If we would teach this to our children, like we used to, we would be much better off.
the Media Mob is dragging the shoting victim leftists out to speak for gun control since the NRA has officially surrendered.
The abolishment of the 2nd Amendment will bring civil war to this country.
Medved is no conservative. He’s a RINO at best.
The irony of losing their 1st Amendment rights by relinquishing our 2nd Amendment rights is lost on the likes of Medved and O’Reilly.
Well, actually the good news for both O’Reilly and Medved, is that they at least moved more to the right in their lifetimes. They could have both stayed pure liberal. Don’t trust either of them to be anything resembling a true conservative, because they aren’t, but I’d rather have them as sometime political friends than 100 percent political enemies. You don’t always get perfection.
Just be aware that on some things both are perfectly capable of turning on us at times, because they really aren’t conservatives. My question is, how is it that some conservative people haven’t figured these two out a long time ago. It’s so obvious that they are RINO’s at best, or moderates in the pure sense of the word. Some things are self evident.
My biggest issue with O’Reilly is that he constantly interrupts people and talks over them. I consider that incredibly rude.
As a matter of fact I hate it so much I think people guilty of it should be shot by firing squad.
Clearly Michael Medved does not own guns and does not understand that “assault weapon” is a thoroughly phony PR phrase that means nothing. Likewise Jim Boeheim, the Syracuse coach who won his 900th. game yesterday, made some similar statement which indicates he just doesn’t know jack about guns.
Medved does an interesting show, but he always hewes very closely to the far left edge of Conservatism.
O’Reilly is NOT a conservative, he’s a statist.
Yep. There was a thread here yesterday about Bill Bennett advocating gund control.
Sad. Bennett is one of my political heroes.
Krauthammer was mewling on the same subject last night. But at least he admitted that gun control was not gonna happen in his lifetime.
Is it possible that the famous neoconservatives are moving back towards liberalism?
