WORLD’S DUMBEST BLOGGER: My “Facts” About Gun Control Aren’t Political, As Far As You Know

Doug Ross

Last year, The Washington Post’s Ezra Klein yanked the title of World’s Dumbest Blogger from Matthew Yglesias.

Klein appears to be positioning himself to retain the title in 2013 by leaping into the gun control debate on the heels of the man-caused disaster at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Remember: we’re not allowed to call evil by its rightful name, be it Islamofascism or plain psychopathy.

Klein’s latest missive is as impressive a collection of lies, fables, half-truths and misdirection as you’ll see in a single WaPo excretion. Consider a couple of clips:

If roads were collapsing all across the United States, killing dozens of drivers, we would surely see that as a moment to talk about what we could do to keep roads from collapsing. If terrorists were detonating bombs in port after port, you can be sure Congress would be working to upgrade the nation’s security measures. If a plague was ripping through communities, public-health officials would be working feverishly to contain it.

Only with gun violence do we respond to repeated tragedies by saying that mourning is acceptable but discussing how to prevent more tragedies is not.

Ezra Klein pictured here is his uncle’s suit

I’ve got a better analogy: if increasingly easy access to welfare and food stamps offer incentives to rear children out of wedlock… and if those kids born out of wedlock are proven to commit violent crime at far higher rates than kids raised in two-parent familes… and if the correlation of welfare to violent crime had been proven in roughly two dozen studies… and if said correlation affected millions of kids… would Democrats finally abandon their failed “Great Society” policies that have literally turned inner cities into violent, crime-ridden wastelands?

    Using this retards logic:

    “If roads were collapsing all across the United States, killing dozens of drivers, we would surely see that as a moment to talk about what we could do to keep roads from collapsing.”

    No – you fucking retards would ban roads.

    “If terrorists were detonating bombs in port after port, you can be sure Congress would be working to upgrade the nation’s security measures.”

    No – you fucking retards would ban ports.

    “If a plague was ripping through communities, public-health officials would be working feverishly to contain it.”

    No – you fucking retards would ban communities.

    “The masterminds who think they can banish evil from the world by banning guns must reject all of human history, as well as logic and reason, to promote their unconstitutional schemes.”

    They have practically NO knowledge of human history.
    And logic and reason…pulllleeeeezzze!
    They don’t need no steenking logic OR reason.

    It’s all about feeeeeeelings.
    And guns make them feel like the bed-wetting wimps they ARE.

    We do discuss solutions, all the time. The solution begins with CCW, then continues with the elimination of gun-free zones.

    actually, in the case of HIV, the fags would be telling the CDC to leave them alone, like they did hen they wanted to shut down the baths.

    “If a plague was ripping through communities, public-health officials would be working feverishly to contain it.”

    Ezra obviously hasn’t read “And The Band Played On” or any of the stuff author Randy Shilts wrote with David Horowitz about trying to wake up health dept. officials in San Francisco to the looming disaster that would become known as AIDS.

    Oooops… I forgot about the protected class of H-mo’s.

    “If a plague was ripping through communities, public-health officials would be working feverishly to contain it.”

    No – you fucking retards would blame Anita Bryant and Jerry Falwell and demand taxpayer funded condoms and anal lube.

    The NRA promotes a method that works great for reducing gun crimes. Get gun training if you need it and get a carry license. Keep one in the chamber if you travel through the valley of the shadow of death. Some times you don’t even have to shoot a murderous criminal — just let him know you will blow his fluking brains out if he attacks you or your family or friends, and let him see you take the safety off and move your trigger finger into position.
    Guns in the hands of law abiding citizens always lower the crime rate in their neighborhoods. Check the FBI crime statistics for verification of the effectiveness of pro-gun laws and pro-gun area crime rates compared to anti-gun areas.
    A five-year old could figure it out. That doesn’t say much for progressives.

    While a tragedy for those families losing their children and loved ones, no one denies this. To use this as a tool to gut the Second Amendment and Constitution as a whole is criminal intent and treason, Barry!!!!! Remember what happened to the Nazis who did this in Europe? They didnt fare so well, now did they BARRY>?
