Toure: NRA Wants Massacres And For Mentally Ill To Have Access To Guns (video)
RealClearPolitics ^ | December 20, 2012

Posted on 12/23/2012 11:45:34 AM PST by EveningStar

MSNBC'S TOURE: We have to remember that the NRA does not really represent gun owners. They really represent gun and ammunition manufacturers. So, they’re not going to do anything tomorrow, or at any point, that would hurt their business, the billion dollar business that they represent.

I work with a guy who watchs PMSNBC almost exclusively. A sweet guy, otherwise intelligent, but he buys into this kind of crap a lot.

***They really represent gun and ammunition manufacturers.***

I believe the arms and ammo makers have their own lobby organization. SAAMI

NRA’s LaPierre had his way with Gregory on Meet the Depressed this morning. PMSNBC can’t stand that.

While a student at Emory University, Touré founded the black student newspaper, The Fire This Time. He dropped out of college in 1992 and became an intern at Rolling Stone magazine but was fired after a few months.

Touré (born Touré Neblett, March 20, 1971) is an American novelist, essayist, music journalist, cultural critic, and television personality based in New York City. He is the host of Fuse’s Hiphop Shop.

On March 19, 2005, Touré married Rita Nakouzi on a beach in Miami, with Rev. Run from Run-DMC as the officiant and Nelson George as the best man. Touré and his wife live in the Fort Greene neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York.

********

A subsequent arena tour turned Run-D.M.C. into pop stars; unfortunately, several of their appearances were plagued by outbreaks of violence. One infamous show at Long Beach Arena in California found the notorious L.A. Crip and Blood gangs fighting each other and robbing and assaulting other concertgoers, leaving nearly 40 people injured. That concert made national headlines and allowed the media to single out Run-D.M.C., the group’s music, and rap music in general as a cause of violence, a reputation that has haunted the hip-hop community to this day.

Run-D.M.C.’s second movie, the bizarrely violent action drama Tougher Than Leather, bombed in theaters; the group’s 1990 album, Back From Hell (titled in part as a reference to the group’s spiritual awakening after personal bouts with drugs and alcohol), also attracted little interest. More bad news followed in 1991, when Run was charged with raping a college student in Ohio. The charges were eventually dropped.

Meet Toure, the Kim Kardashian of Social Commentary

by Dr. Boyce Watkins

Oddly enough, I woke up this morning wondering about the enigma who calls himself “Toure.”  No last name, just “Toure.”  I normally wouldn’t be spending my time writing solely about another person, but out of respect for serious political analysts that white television networks tend to ignore, I had to discuss this issue out loud.

Toure of MSNBC is the man who has every intelligent black person in America wondering why he’s on TV, myself included.   There are no credentials in his background which lead you to believe that he should be defining the direction of national thought on serious political issues (the bio I found says that he dropped out of Emory University in 1992).  He also seems to say things for entertainment, rather than substantive, value and doesn’t seem to take his work all that seriously.

Toure, on the other hand, offers the kind of empty insights that make you wonder what the 23-year old television producer was thinking when she booked him to discuss the intricacies of African American politics. The man who hunts for his next soundbite like a teenage girl trying to find the coolest Coach purse, doesn’t seem to know how to make his remarks without saying something that appears to be flat-out stupid.  Some might even consider him to be a simple-minded clown.

No. But he probably has two or three armed bodyguards.

I actually thought LaPierre looked terrible today. He wasn’t coherent in some of his arguments, and he was literally foaming at the mouth.

For instance, he allowed Gregory to get away with saying that at Columbine and Virginia Tech, there were armed guards already and they didn’t prevent the shootings. Well, at Columbine, the guard was off campus at the time and had to come back when he heard the reports. That’s why he could only engage the shooters from the parking lot until backup arrived. Had he been INSIDE the school when the shooters arrived, he may have stopped them much sooner. At Virginia Tech, the police arrived at the building within 3 minutes, but it took them 5 minutes to get through the doors that the shooter had chained up before he started shooting. That was all the time he needed. In addition, a college campus is an entirely different animal than a high school, which should be a fairly closed campus with very limited entrances. That’s why college students need the right to carry concealed.

Also, on the issue of the magazines, all he had to say was “David, what difference does it make it the magazine holds 10 rounds or 30 rounds if we can’t stop the behavior that is causing these shootings? What is the acceptable number of dead kids?”

At Virginia Tech those chainable doors were an old design that was replaced by an improved design in building codes after the Coliseum Explosion in Indianapolis. The VT building was put up just months before that event.

For some reason VT, which has more than its fairshare of engineering talent, neglected to make the simple door latch replacement that would have allowed the cops to get inside in less than 5 minutes!

My understanding is they still have the old design in place ~ no change there ~ but they've quit using the building for classroom space ~ for which it wasn't designed anyway.

The inmates continue to be in charge of the asylum down there.

And this POS is eagerly promoting the genocide of his race. All because of the money he and his fellow child molesters get.

The 8th circle for seducers, flatterers, those who exchange money for spiritual goods, sorcerers/false prophets, corrupt politicians, hypocrites, thieves, sowers of discord, etc. is certainly going to be crowded.

“We have to remember that the NRA does not really represent gun owners.”

Then why are millions of us giving them money, writing letters to legislators, governors, and the like on its behalf? What a turd.

Lapierre could have done better in that exchange sequence, but Gregory didn’t make any real headway in his loony lefty argument.

As I recall, LaPierre alluded to other ways of driving up the body count and that limiting mag capacity is not one of them. It’s easy to switch out 5 or 10 rd mags quickly and/or use more than one gun. Advertising “gun free zones” is nothing but a neon sign for kooks. Gregory’s dumb statement can be turned around on him as he would accept more dead than less if there is no gun can counter murderous carnage.

Moreover, Lanza could have used a .22 LR squirrel rifle in that confined area of huddled Sandy Hook 1st graders where the result would have been just the same.

In the end, it takes a gun to stop a gun.

Once again, Toure makes a flatly untrue statement. Why do they give him a forum?

We have to remember that Toure does not really represent blacks. He represents Liberals and Uyghurs....
