Bill Maher Tears Into Liberals For Not Standing Up On Guns: Too Afraid To Say ‘2nd Amendment Is BS’
Mediaite ^ | 10:58 pm, April 12th, 2013 | Josh Feldman

Posted on 04/13/2013 5:09:28 PM PDT by Olog-hai

Bill Maher opened up the panel discussion on his show tonight talking about recent developments on gun control in the Senate.

He lamented how liberals have basically conceded the gun argument to the center-right, saying that liberals to a certain degree also indulge in the “fetishization” of guns, and declaring that someone on the left needs to stand up and say that the “Second Amendment is b—s—.” …

… Former Reagan budget director David Stockman found it amusing that anyone would think having an “18th century citizen militia” armed with muskets somehow has “anything to do with liberty.” He said that the “real shield for liberty” is the first amendment, not the second. …

Um ya rite. The USSR’s constitution had rights like free speech and freedom of assembly (and limited freedom of religion), thus a deformed version of the USA’s First Amendment, but no right to keep and bear arms—which meant the “proletariat” were at the mercy of the very Party that promised them freedom (to the toll of well over 100 million dead).

Hitler’s Nazis and Stalin’s commies thought that the Second Amendment was BS too. Probably just a coincidence. Bill Maher sounds like he has a problem with freedom and liberty. He’s probably a big slavery supporter.

This is actually good. I want them to just come out and say they want to repeal the second. Let them try. It is their true intention.

they were armed with the most modern firearms at’the time, same as the british soldiers. that’s the point of the second amendment, citizens can be armed at the same level as government. the second amendment is why cops and military can have weapons, their powers are derived from the people and the states.

I agree. At least he is more honest with his intentions than Obama, who makes passing comments that he supports the 2nd Ammendment while then doing everything he possibly can to infringe that right.

At least Mahr is being honest. For a liberal anyway.

I would find it refreshing if liberals would be more honest about their intentions. Admit that they think we should get rid of the 2nd Amendment. Admit that they think we should get rid of the constitution for that matter. And admit that they hate America, for the love of Pete.

Why is david stockman everywhere lately?

He's hawing his new book The Great Deformation: The Corruption of Capitalism in America.

He actually gave a very interesting and insightful interview on WSJ last week and made a tremendous amount of sense about the coming economic collapse. That will resonate with most here on FR. Check out Sundown in America. Subscription may be required.

These people are quite obnoxious because they feel protected by the state and don’t care if the ordinary person is left defenseless against criminals, foreign invaders, and domestic tyrants.

The First Amendment, as well as the rest of the Bill of Rights, is a glorious achievement in the political history of man. However, the Bill of Rights mean nothing without the teeth of 2nd Amendment. The 2nd Amendment ensures that the common citizen can defend himself against anyone threatening all of his or hers other natural rights.

Junior_G said: "I would find it refreshing if liberals would be more honest about their intentions."

One of them did just that. I don't find it refreshing. He's a counter-revolutionary. What should we do about counter-revolutionaries? Are they a danger to our Republic? I think so.

He and others like him took sides two hundred years ago and LOST. If they want to fight that war all over again, they just need to say so.

Will we soon hear Maher eloquently stirring the liberal masses with, "Give me Gun Control, or Give Me Death!"? Somehow, I doubt it.

David Stockman is a clueless fool.

Of course an 18th century citizen’s militia armed with muskets mattered in THE 18TH CENTURY, because at that point in time, the government had only 18th century muskets.

In the present day, citizen’s need more powerful firearms because of the heavy firepower the standing government has at THEIR disposal in the 21st century.

Pit the truth of intention against itself and let the people decide. Liberals know that a majority would be against them so they have to deceive.

They do see that. Just contrast the Bible and the Communist Manifesto:
A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just.

— Proverbs 13:22

Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes. … A heavy progressive or graduated income tax. … Abolition of all rights of inheritance.

— First, second and third planks of Communism, from Communist Manifesto, Chapter 2
Seeing as how the Bible and the Communist Manifesto are diametric opposites, who do you reckon the liberals are serving?

I would actually LOVE to see them repeal the 2nd amendment.

It would amount to an official declaration of war against all non-leftists. If its official then we are all the more justified to go down fighting.

David Stockman says he is not afraid to call the 2nd amendment bullsh*t. He says the world has moved passed the 2nd amendment. I wonder if the love affair with him from the Ron Paul/Info Wars crowd will end now.

The 2nd Amendment right to bear arms was no more meant to be limited to 18th century militia and muskets than the 1st Amendment right of freedom of the press was meant to be limited to manually-operated printing presses.

But then are there any arguments/positions of today's Orwellian left that don't rest on such brain-dead contradictions?

Well, speaking of Orwellian, there is the principle of “blackwhite” (an expansion of “doublethink”), which refers to being able to hold two contradictory ideas in your head while believing both to be true—which was one test of how absolute one’s loyalty to the Party was (if the Party said black was white, then you believed it was and you forget that it could have ever been something else). Same goes with the proverbial “2 + 2 = 5”. Stockman is blatantly exhibiting the qualities of an Inner Party member here, and of course he isn’t the only one.

Hey, if somebody wants to get rid of the 2nd, I say let’s ditch the whole Bill of Rights and all the Amendments.

Let us just see how well that goes over. I’m with Mark Levin, if those idjits in DC want to get rid of the 2nd, they can put it to a vote of the states. Anything else is illegal and those richardheads know it.
