The Stupidity Is Strong With This One

Robert O’Rourke goes to Kent State and cites the student massacre as a reason for gun confiscation.   The fool apparently doesn’t realize that it was the government who had the guns.

Here is a thought: If you are going to advocate for the forcible confiscation of an estimated 16 million rifles from lawful American citizens, it is probably best not to do it against the backdrop of one of the most famous incidents of unarmed citizens being shot to death by government forces.

Looking at you, Beto O’Rourke.

The former Texas congressman, who is still running in the 2020 Democratic primary despite a lack of any sort of meaningful support, appeared at a campaign event Wednesday at Kent State University in Ohio. As O’Rourke spoke about his pet issue of gun control, demonstrators legally open-carrying firearms, including the style of rifle he believes should believe forcibly confiscated by the federal government, made their presence known.

“It is not enough to stop selling AR-15s and AK-47s when there are more than 10 million of those potential instruments of terror,” the 2020 candidate said. “We must mandate that every one of them be bought back — back home, off the streets, out of our lives — no longer a threat to every single one of us.”

O’Rourke then turned his attention to the protesters specifically, saying, “Nobody should show up with one of these weapons to seek to intimidate us in our own democracy. That’s wrong. That’s wrong.”

    Fucking little asshole Master-Bate-O’Rourke wasn’t even born yet when this happened. Plus it proves modern education is a socialist controlled farce. Actually I was cheering the guard on back in 1970 hoping the KIA rate of the Commie fucks would hit the triple digits.

    M1s were weapons of war too. Heck, that was an exclusively military rifle for a long time until the DCM started selling the leftovers. Millions of them are now owned by private citizens. And it packed a helluva lot more punch than the low powered ARs and AKs out there today.

    I have always believed the National Guardsmen at Kent State. To a man, all
    of them swore that they heard what they called gunshots. Far from being
    idealistic pacificists, many of these long-haired, maggot-infested hippies
    were violent anarcho-communists and I would not be surprised if the
    guardsmen did hear gunshots or at the very least firecrackers or M-80s.

    Required reading for any conservative who believes these people were harmless
    pacifists would be Peter Collier and David Horowitz’s Destructive Generation:
    Second Thoughts about the Sixties. The pot-smoking minions may have fancied
    themselves principled pacifists, but the leadership was made of violent neo-
    communist radicals who were being funded and supported by the Soviet Union.
    As Bogside said, it could have and should have been worse. Kent State
    could have sent a message to the violent savages leading the so-called
    “peace movement.”

    One year, there were 300 major anti-war protests in America. The next year
    there were none. The difference? Nixon abolished the draft. The radicals
    leading the movement were people like Blow-Job Billy, Abbie Hoffman,
    Tom Hayden, Bill Ayers, who were all about keeping their white priviledeged
    asses out of Vietnam!
