Bill Maher ripped into liberals on Real Time Friday for not standing up against gun-worshiping psychopaths. Maher asked,
Everyone on the left is so afraid to say what should be said, which is, the Second Amendment is bullshit. Why doesn’t anyone go at the core of it?
Here at AATTP we’re often faced with the annoying fallacy from the TEApublicans, and sometimes from so-called ‘liberals’ who say the 2nd Amendment is necessary to keep the government in check. As if these basement-dwelling, tin-foil-hat-wearing, Gadsden-flag-waving, ignorant buffoons with AR-15’s stand a chance against the might of the U.S. military.
David Stockman, a Republican and former Reagan budget director agreed, saying,
Since 1787 the world has moved along…People who believe in liberty, like I do, we’re up against a 21st-century state equipped with drones, hundreds of satellites in the sky, watching everything we do, and why would you believe that an 18th-century citizen militia equipped with the equivalent of muskets has anything to do with liberty? It doesn’t.
Money quote from Stockman,
The only way that we protect liberty is with the ballot-box. And the real shield for liberty in America is the First Amendment. Freedom of speech, freedom to organize, freedom to assemble. That’s how we get liberty, not with guns!
