Skip to comments.Brokaw: Silence On Gun Violence Akin To Failing To Oppose Segregation in 60s

Talk about your strained analogies . . . Tom Brokaw has analogized people unwilling support measures aimed at limiting gun violence to those during the 1960s who were unwilling to speak out againt the likes of Bull Connor.
Since the regime, like one of Pavlov's mangy curs, has hit the race card, let us respond with the simple observation that, with the exception of the Arkie trailer trash Clinton, no white president has ever suggested confiscation of guns. But wait, Clinton himself has said that he was the first black president, so the exception is naught. And how do we know that Soetero has always intended to confiscate ALL firearms, - there are dozens of proofs but the main one is his endlessly repeated statement that he intends no such thing. Such words from a compulsive and not very bright liar prove the opposite.
Actually, the “civil rights” stampede of the ‘60s knocked down all sorts of civil rights such as freedom of association and brought Big Sis and her nanny nose into everything.
When we stopped teaching the Ten Commandments, among them “Thou shalt not murder.”, that’s when we started getting all of these mass murderers.
HA!! I wonder how many times Tom Brokaw has demonized Bill Clinton on viewing J. William Fulbright as his mentor!! In fact, I wonder how many times Tom Brokaw demonized Bill OR Hillary Clinton on anything. What a good Obama soldier! Good boy, Tom. Good boy.
They never get tired of playing the race card do they?
He is just wrong. Gun violence has gone down 49% in the past 20 years. Why wasn’t BrokeJaw crying wolf back then?
Go back and read about Loughner...most of his history wasn't noted at the time.
Hasan was "singled out"...but MUSLIM PC prevented us from stopping him. The theatre guy had been "singled out"...and this Lanza...all you had to do was look at the group picture....
Hey, Tom....Obama’s been silent on gun violence in his own ‘hometown’ for the past 4 yrs....what is that akin to?
No white President ever tried to disarm the public.
I’m all in favor of an honest discussion on guns and crime. For example, in Chicago, in 2011, only 1 murder was committed with a rifle. Does Tom want to discuss that? And in Chicago in 2011, roughly 75% of VICTIMS had a prior arrest record with the Chicago police. Does Tom want to discuss THAT? Perhaps he would like to discuss the racial aspects of crime - half of the murders and murderers are black. That number in Chicago is 75%. Is Tom talking about that?
For the life of me I can’t figure out why the media, virtually to a man, is opposed to the Bill of Rights. Do they imagine they’ll get to rule once government has all power, unopposed? Are they just hoping to be eaten last? Or is it just the natural filtering effect that anyone with natural intelligence and ability chooses a college major with substance and where work can be measured objectively, and the rest are left for urinalism?
And he wasn't trying to screw over his employers by taking away their guns. Minor detail, I'm sure it's actually the difference in race that accounts for the reactions. [facepalm]
Where are the Republicans on all this gun confiscation. Where is the Speaker? Where is there ANY statements from the Republican Establishement there in Washington on this? Silence is consent? Get on the move and defend our Constitution! Defend our rights .... speak up on this power grab attempt.
Fixed it. 2nd Amendment violations, 14th Amendment violations - show me the legal difference, please, Mr. Brokaw.
Just one more reason why the old media is very close to our number 1 enemy. Never forget and remember their sponsors.
Brokaw with his fru fru glass frames was on Scarborough.
Scarboriou is a NYC effete who only was elected because of networking skills not actual worthyness. NYC effetes live in the buble of latte and NYC apparments. (the good part of town not the icky part)
David Brinkly must be laughing his head off at the buffoon brokaw has become.
