To Leftmedia liar and simpering hoplophobic loon Katie Couric, from Mitch Berg:
As we discussed last week, you got busted doing something that, in my day (and yours) would have gotten any young reporter unceremoniously fired; you edited a story specifically to invert the history, record and fact in an interview with a group of Virginia gun rights activists, expressly to mislead the public and drive your chosen narrative.
“I can understand the objection of people who did have an issue about it,” Couric said. (The “it” here is the deliberate falsifying of the truth). “Having said that, I think we have to focus on the big issue of gun violence. It was my hope that, when I approached this topic, that this would be a conversation-starter.”
Here is the “conversation” about guns – the entire conversation: as law enforcement targets gun criminals, gun crime is dropping, even as the number of guns in the hands of the law-abiding skyrockets. The only exception is in inner cities, where it’s not the law-abiding citizens doing the shooting. Discuss.
There. There’s your conversation.
But I have a better conversation. Let’s talk about when the media became the PR wing of the America left.
And that’s fine, to a point – most of us have come to accept that, to one degree or another; it’s part of America’s intellectual background noise.
So let’s “converse” about this…
And then he goes on to REALLY let ‘er rip. Although I would beg to differ slightly with Mitch on one thing: his conversation is about statistics and crime and fails to address the truly central issue—which exists far upstream of Mitch’s contentions, all of which admittedly are fine within that limitation. The real “conversation” about guns, boiled down to the barest bones of it, is exclusively this:
It’s in the Constitution, explicitly and unequivocally. It’s a bedrock human right and foundational principle of this nation, made perfectly clear by every word written by every damned one of the Founders in which the topic is brought up, up to and including the how-to manual to the Constitution, the Federalist Papers. Last but by no means least: come and fucking take them, if you dare. See what happens. I promise you won’t like it.
THAT’S your conversation. Arguing further with lying liberal-fascists is a waste of time, and nothing more needs to be said.
