Roger Ebert: Second Amendment Ratified to Preserve Slavery
Breitbart ^

Posted on 01/16/2013 9:12:21 PM PST by chessplayer

We've already heard Constitutional scholar Matthew Modine opine on the Second Amendment this week. Now, it's film critic Roger Ebert's turn. And the Thumbs Up pioneer offers an even daffier version of U.S history than the "Vision Quest" star.

Alarmist headline. Ebert merely tweeted a link to someone else’s article with that thesis.

He’s a movie critic. Do you really think he has any understanding of reality? Gun control is well documented as racially based. All idiot boy, er... Mr. Ebert has to do is research the Jim Crow Laws.

Either the left really think that America is stupid or they are so detached from reality that they really do need to seek mental help.

And the 1st was to keep da Black Man down.

In fact, dat whole ting was to do that. That “freedom” stuff was just a cover. Wasn’t no White men killed in “Revolution.” They just pretended so they could keep the slaves scared.

Let them keep talking. We find out what they really think and avoid/boycott them. They can rot in hell as far as I’m concerned as long as they leave me alone. I don’t watch their movies or read their opinions.

Every time they open their mouths they prove how ignorant and out of touch they are.

This wasn't meant as his own personal belief, per se.

It's simply the continuation of the “racist narrative” that the left uses to fill the empty heads of unbelievably stupid people, and unfortunately, it's effective.

Many people will be spreading this “fact” and are actually dumb enough to believe it.

“John Brown’s body lies a-moulderin’ in the grave
‘Cause he didn’t have enough guns

Glory, glory, hallelujah! [repeat twice]
Keep disarmed the blacks”

New lyrics by Roger Ebert’s pals.

Roger is married to a black woman, and occasionally writes about racial issues. When he does I interpret his views as coming from his wife. If that is the case, we need to take this seriously that the black community is seriously misinformed about the history of the second amendment and how gun control laws were originally designed to keep them down. It isn’t just some dumb white man’s opinion.

Here in Michigan the first gun control laws were a direct result of Ossian Sweet and his brother being acquitted of murdering a white man who was part of a mob trying to drive them out of a "white neighborhood".

If we cannot stop the attitude that “that guy on TV thinks this way” that the sheep follow, we do not have a chance.

It is almost like that panhandler on the street said he would work for food but the health department told him that he needed help in cash. If he said it on TV with the MSM selling ad space, they would run it and the sheep would believe it.
