Hillary on 2nd Amendment: the “viewpoint” crime

by Jon Rappoport

June 18, 2014


“After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn’t do it. I sure as hell wouldn’t want to live in a society where the only people allowed guns are the police and the military.” (William Burroughs, Grand Street no. 37, 1992)

Hillary on guns at a CNN town hall meeting:

“I’m well aware that this is a hot political subject. And again, I will speak out no matter what role I find myself in. [Ahem, a role like President, or President, or possibly even President.] But I believe that we need a more thoughtful conversation. We cannot let a minority of people – and it’s, that’s what it is, it is a minority of people – hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people.”

I see. So the Viewpoint in favor of gun ownership is a hostile act. The Viewpoint itself terrorizes the population.

Could there be a more transparent illustration of political correctness?

Well, suppose I have the idiosyncratic viewpoint that schools who punish kids for bringing toy guns or bubble gum guns or poptart guns or screen saver guns to class—those schools should be shut down and the teachers and administrators who punish the kids should be shipped to a desert island?

Am I terrorizing the population?

Hillary then went on to talk about the need to protect students and teachers from someone who brings a gun to school and goes crazy and shoots people.

This is her example? This is her talking point? This is her rallying cry?

She doesn’t mention where the majority of gun violence takes place in America. She omits that. Where is it? The Southwest? Montana? The plains of Iowa? Key West? Maine? Are good old boys with pickups and shotguns mowing people down on back country roads? Is that the epicenter?

I guess the places where the most gun violence is occurring are on a special list, titled: “not responsible.”

No one shot anyone there.

Poverty pulled the triggers. Drugs pulled the triggers. Bad schools pulled the triggers. Broken homes pulled the triggers.

So those places don’t count—therefore, guess what? Statistically, we have very, very little human-caused gun violence in America. We’re in good shape. We don’t need new restrictions on gun ownership.

Issue solved. Case closed.

These unmentionable places where lots of people are shooting at other people and killing them and maiming them: they’re not real, they don’t exist. After all, Hillary didn’t talk about them.

But if those places did exist, where are the guns coming from? Gun shops? The guns are all legally obtained? Are they coming from the ATF? Oh, wait, no, that’s Mexico. The ATF runs guns into Mexico for the drug cartels. Fast&Furious, and before that, under Bush, Operation End-Around. But that op is also unmentionable now. It’s stale. Old news. Forget it.

And military weapons, including drones, in the hands of American soldiers and the CIA: that’s way off the reservation. It’s called war. Can’t discuss that as part of the gun problem.

Anything else we can’t discuss? How about the CIA program under Bill, when he was governor of Arkansas, whereby factories were secretly built in his home state to manufacture guns for the Contras? (See Terry Reed, John Cummings, “Compromised.”) Were those factories, at the very least, a viewpoint-crime? Seems like it.

Police forces all over America are now being outfitted with military hardware. Armored vehicles, heavy weapons. Does that constitute a hostile viewpoint-crime?

And then there’s this old (but true) saw: people like Hillary walk and drive around with formidable security. Those guards are packing heat. Somehow, it seems unfair. Regular citizens don’t have a cordon of protection. Hillary doesn’t need a gun because her people have them. So why should anyone listen to her pontificate on the subject of weapons?

She’s essentially saying, “See my guys? They’re armed. They’re always around. You people don’t have that. That’s tough. Too bad. Give up your guns.”

Appears to be another hostile viewpoint-crime. Very hostile, pretentious, and condescending.

power outside the matrix

Reminiscent of her recent comment that she and Bill were “broke” when they left the White House in 2000. Broke, except for a book contract and a house that magically appeared for them in posh Westchester County.

The Clintons are like that. They feel your pain, they’re just like you, except when they’re not, which is always.

But don’t worry. As the symbolic first woman President (every criticism against her will be labeled sexist), she’ll tirelessly work toward that shining day when all guns will be removed from the populace. The police and the military will have all the weapons. The streets will be quiet and serene.

She’ll come rolling into your town accompanied by a bevy of tanks.

Just to be on the safe side.

    The school shootings are as real as Bin Laden pulling off 9/11 or the moon landing. Can I prove that? No. Can anyone else prove that they did happen? No. A phony weeping parent doesn’t convince me.

    • Scott Vines says:

      Especially when those normally inconsolable victims are giving multiple interviews withing hours or days of their alleged losses….

  2. Jackie ONeil says:

    Very well put shall continue on but not in fantasy land. JackieO

  3. mangrove says:

    Excellent. Thank you. My former lefty friends STILL don’t get it. And never will. They’ll get right in line behind Hillary, after they vote for her.

    • Gary says:

      To wit: “The men (and women) the American people admire most extravagantly are the greatest liars: the men they detest most violently are those who try to tell them the truth.”- H.L. Mencken

      Such a frighteningly accurate quote if ever there was one. Speaking of frightening, it’s not the lunatics like Clinton et al. that are frightening, no, the real frigttening creatures are the spell-bound, enslaved masses gleefully applauding their slave masters as said slave-masters tell their slaves with complete transparency how they intend to kill them.

      • Al wilkinson says:

        A sad note: In the sweet days of old a vote was worth a pint of good whiskey now it’s price… a mere promise of change.

  4. Rose Hackney says:

    Yes Hillary. You and you DC friends are the MINORITY and terrorize every American with your lust for power .

  5. Anna says:

    Love it! Best all time skewering in several categories. What a takedown. Thank you for putting a big smile on my face.

  6. Phil Hershkowitz says:

    When guns are criminalized, only criminals will have guns. As Jon points out, it’s the fearful over protected political class that are the most vociferous in calling for the disarming of the populous.

    • brian says:

      Yes it is the people doing the biggest crimes that are the most afraid of the guns? Queer is it, or just logical?

  7. theodorewesson says:

    Also, like Hillary, Michael Bloomberg is essentially saying, “See my guys? They’re armed. They’re always around. You people don’t have that. That’s tough. Too bad. Give up your guns.”

  8. henry says:

    If you try to have an intelligent conversation with a gun grabber you will find that they are not interested in analyzing the issue. They, or someone they look up to, have done the thinking and anyone who disagrees with them has the option of submitting, being killed by a SWAT team, or being put in a cage where you can be anally raped. If you break down gun death by race they will call you a racist even though it is the racial minorities that are disproportionately the victims of homicide. They don’t want to break down the problem into smaller, easier to solve problems. They are not interested in solving the problem at all.

    The argument that “if government can take away your right to own a gun it is because believe that they gave you that right and if they gave you that right then they believe they gave you all of your rights” is incomprehensible to them.

    Religions are a set of stories, values, rituals, leaders, and faith statements. “There should be a separation of church and state” is a faith statement. It means that no minor religion should conflict with the one true religion: the corporatist state. The socialists are cult members. They believe that the state gives you your rights. Therefore, they are not Americans. They are intolerant religious bigots who try to ridicule all other beliefs. When you point this out to them, they will run away from you and try to avoid you in the future. Try it.

    Notice how she is pulling the old Leninist trick of claiming to be the majority.

    One thing can be said about Hitlery is; she doesn’t know what it means to be an American.
