Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.) on MSNBC Thursday claimed “millions of kids” are dying at the hands of these weapons and Congress is failing to act. “Millions of kids” he said. And as if he was reading straight from his boss man’s gun-grabbing checklist, he added “I’m ashamed to admit it but its politics and its money, The NRA has taken this position, there is no reason, there is no foundation. There is no hunter that needs automatic military weapons to enjoy the culture of going hunting. But you know it’s really basically the absence of the voices of good people. I cannot believe that politicians are afraid of the NRA.”
After that bucket full of company-line-toting vomit, he added “We’re talking about millions of kids dying — being shot down by assault weapons, were talking about handguns easier in the inner cities, to get these guns in the inner cities, than to get computers. This is not just a political issue, it’s a moral issue and so when we condemn the NRA we should not ignore the fact that a lot of people that have taken moral positions have been solid on this big one.”
Ok, where do I start? With the lies, the inaccuracies, the misinformation, or just the plain ol’ stupid comments? Let’s try to break down this gas bag’s jibber jabbering.
– Rangel claims it’s all about politics and money to the NRA. How can a person who took an oath to the Constitution accuse an organization whose sole purpose it is to protect an amendment from that same Constitution, totally smear that organization with lies and never acknowledge the amendment they’re protecting. The only reason this buffoon made this comment is actually due to “politics”.
– “There is no hunter that needs automatic military weapons to enjoy the culture of going hunting.” Correct, you idiot! That’s why NO hunter uses “military weapons” to hunt! A semiautomatic AR-15, for example, is not a military weapon. And who said anything about hunting? The 2nd Amendment has NOTHING to do with hunting! Hunting was a way of life – a way to eat when the Constitution was written. They didn’t write amendments about growing corn did they?
– Politicians are not “afraid of the NRA”. Nice bluff attempt to call out politicians. No, the politicians are afraid to be voted out of office if they’re stupid enough to pass legislation that most of the American population does NOT support. Obama and the Democrats can cite they’re own little random polls all they want. The legislators know the truth and what “the people” really want.
– “…millions of kids dying — being shot down by assault weapons”? Does this moron know he’s lies or is he deliberately doing so? When statistics are so easy to look up, why wouldn’t this clown take only a second to educate himself on the truth? Even if you were to throw ALL rifle related deaths into one category to inflate “assault rifle” numbers, that’s still only 358. That’s a mere 999,642 off the mark of Rangel’s idiotic claim of “millions”. And remember Rangel’s boy, Joe Biden, blabbering about “go buy a shotgun” instead of an “assault rifle”? Even the good ol’ shotgun killed more people (373) than rifles.
It’s clear that Rangel and all his homies on the left are being led around by their noses and couldn’t produce a true gun fact if they could get both hands on one. They have missed their opportunity to exploit guns. They are losing. Outside of the impending threat of “universal” background checks and transfers – their real goal – the Dems have completely bombed out on their mission of disarming legal, innocent, law-abiding Americans – while they refuse to disarm their own armed security.
Oh, one more thing. We should give Charlie Rangel a pass on his inability to gather numbers and stats properly. This is the same fool that evaded taxes, was hammered by the House Ethics Committee, was kicked off his post as Ways and Means Chair, and was found guilty by the Ethics Committee of 11 counts of violating House ethics rules.
Here’s the video of this tool making his idiotic comments:
