Quote Of The Day

From Lawdog:

“The same people who last week were screeching about the government having concentration camps now want me to give my AR15s to that same government.
“The same people who last month were hyperventilating about the government slaughtering black people now expect me to surrender my guns to that same government.
“The same people who last year were setting stuff on fire and yipping about the government rounding up the gays and Muslims for liquidation now think it’s a good idea for me to just hand over my rifles to that same government.
“You chuckleheads need to make up your damned minds.”

I would have used a more graphic term than “chuckleheads”, but other than that, he’s quite right.

  1. ah, but that’s the beauty of lefty liberalism – the ability to hold multiple contradictory thoughts in ones head at the same time.

  2. I’m starting to believe that one of the first philosophical presuppositions of leftism is that intellectual consistency is not required. Orange man bad, but give orange man your guns.

    I think this is one of the biggest consequences of the loss of any semblance of bi-partisanship in our government today. These laws that are being written seem to be written with the assumption that one’s political allies will forever be in charge of the execution of said law. Of course we should pass red-flag laws, after all it isn’t like a gun-grabbing democrat will ever be in the White House again. Similarly, of course we should pass the Affordable Care Act and put the executive branch in near exclusive control over how the law is implemented, it isn’t like a Republican will ever be in the White House.

        1. Lyndon Johnson was the last politician to say something resembling that principle, apparently, and he’s been gone fifty years.
