Shepard Smith equates gun ownership and slavery

Posted on 01/21/2013 12:50:18 PM PST by ConservativeMan55

The Pollster Shepard was talking to said.. the polls aren't there. People don't support any type of ban on guns or ammunition.

Shep: "Polls? Polls? We can't go by polls. If we did we would still have slavery!"

He’s a lying piece of trash.

Former slave owners were among the first to call for gun control to keep guns out of the hands of blacks.......and their ideological descendants are still doing it today.

“Shep: “Polls? Polls? We can’t go by polls. If we did we would still have slavery!””

He’s wrong historically as well. Slavery was already headed out when Lincoln started the war.

He has it backwards. “Rights” are not subject to a vote. And no matter how many votes you have or dont have, you cannot restrict my God given rights to self defense.

Besides,, has anyone told him. The first gun laws in America were designed to keep guns away from slaves?

Slavery begins when you are disarmed.

Either elitist Shep Smith is too stupid to know this, or he is a cynical hypocrite.

Either way, he’s a loser.

Is he saying most people would support slavery? What an idiot. Even before the Civil War, why do you think Lincoln was elected? He ran as an abolitionist.

So, Shemp thinks that the majority of Americans would support slavery!?! On the day 0bama was inaugurated for a second term.

He should be fired for that.

This is why I watch no TV news. Nothing! Not even Fox which lately has been getting in line with all the other cable news stations. Flipping through the channels today I caught a bit of CBS news and The Inaugural ceremonies. Downright embarrassing! The news outlets are the enemy of all freedom loving people.

Correct.

The cotton combine could do ten times the work for one-tenth the cost of a slave. Slavery was doomed by sheer economics. There was no real need to kill 600,000 Americans. I surmise that the real battle was between Federalism and Confederalism, a subtle but very important difference.

Jim Crow laws also kept firearms out of black hands.

It’s funny they have to forget actual history to make their idiotic claims. History proves them to be idiots and total liars.

But nowadays, “unbiased journalists” rarely let facts get in the way of their propagandizing agenda.

I bet American slaves in the 1860s were happy that the North had gun production and guns.

Who hired Shep Smith? And why is he still employed?

I have been tempted but I have never said that he should be fired for his idiotic remarks in the past. This goes way over the line. It serves no purpose but to try and re-charge the Race Card while demonizing law-abiding gun owners. Shemp would be a good fit the Reality TV News of MSNBC.

In Michigan, gun control laws are a direct result of a black man (Ossian Sweet) being acquitted of murder after killing a racist who tried to drive Sweet out of a “white” Detroit neighborhood in the 1920s. The first gun control legislation started showing up in Lansing just weeks after the verdict.

There are only two major problems with Smith:

1. He isn’t very bright.

2. He thinks he is.

Let’s see, this starts not just with Danny Glover saying the same thing, and this queer gets it ass backwards (naturally, how else). Utterly uninformed and delighted to be so as he looks in the mirror and kisses himself.

Blast his email/whatever with some GD FACTs, please freepers. Make him pay attention about FACTs— you know— WE RESEARCH, and YOU DECIDE.

The truth is that gun control was proposed by slave holders to keep blacks from getting guns. Many do not know but the NRA is not all white....at all. And it advocates for ALL AMERICANS having the right to keep and bear arms, blacks included. For example the little black lady stuck in the project with her extended “family” of drug gangsters using her place as a front, and her being threatened at all times— she should have protection— what is she going to wait for the police (who might be “bent” anyway)?

I remember this joker on Fox in Cent.FL and his buddy Trace Gallagher (who I think is not uh, whatever, and more or less conservative). He was well known then useless twit there-full of himself- perfect for talking head moron stations. And poor Brit Hume for thinking he’s “one of the best”... the best what, Brit (and sorry for the loss of your son)?

Shepard Smith is a graduate of my high school. Back in the early days of FOX when he got the job he has now, he spoke at a graduation ceremony.

Here he was among the smalltown folk of Holly Springs MS, but guess he was not alone. He had armed security with him to protect him from the perils of that little private school. What hypocrisy.

Historically, the southern states voted to secede, began raising an army and fired on Ft. Sumpter. Up until that point the union/Lincoln had not freed any slaves, abolished slavery or even proposed to abolish it or fired a shot to begin any hostilities and in fact sought to avoid hostilities. The hostile southern democrats, like democrats today, believed they could do what they damned well pleased without talking to republicans. The south fired the first shots in an effort to keep slavery as their “peculiar” institution.

Bingo! And every lib agenda, gays, guns.... it is all being equated with slavery and racism as the counter.... with absolutely nothing to support this.

Slavery was taken out of the law by an AMENDMENT, and the loss of 750K Americans North and South, ole sheppie You jacka**.

So,...they want to get rid of the 2nd Amendment— then by God, try to pass an amendment to change a Constitutional Right. Try it. Otherwise, shut the hell up.

Ok, sheppie boy... gay is a CHOICE, and you are free to be...queer thanks to our system. Guns are a RIGHT, for self defense and for the militia which is All of the People (Federalist papers and many other locations referenced), vs. the tyrannical King and his resident armies of Hessians and regulars who took over our homes and land to be billetted at our expense (sound familiar?).

The sheppies love the obamaomau, because the subservient assumed role is so familiar to them, him being on their team and all, with a beard wyf. How damn sad and weak, and how far we have fallen.
