I normally watch most of the liberal coverage of the news because, since they tend to “own” the message on commercial television (which includes cable) it is necessary to take a gander and a “listen to” the programming that will determine the trajectory of the news message. Let’s face it, we (conservatives) are not competing on the same level. We have “talk radio” which is NOT ” united “against everything else —- which s united under a liberal mantra. Remember “a house divided will fall” but that does not concern our “rugged individualists” also known as “establishment conservatives” or “talk radio” or whatever.
OK, so Col. “Larry” Wilkerson was his most controversial last night having given up the desire to be wise, if that ever concerned him at all. Colin Powell’s former chief of staff ,” Col Larry,”once condemned the Republican Party a couple of years ago , telling MSNBC’s Ed Schultz, “My party is full of racists.” . Well he should know , because unless people think that they are voicing sentiments to someone they see “eye to eye” with, they are reticent to articulate their ugliness……. but I am just “sayin'”……. as a Black woman who knows about “racial stuff” – people speak to those they hive much in common with.
But I digress……
Let’s get back to last night…… On Bill Maher….. Col “Larry” said “If anybody is directly responsible for Orlando, it’s the Republican Party for stymieing all manner of gun control.” He then went on to excuse his ownership of 14 weapons and said that since he inherited them and are not using them for “protection” they were OK. If “gun control” is what he is desiring, he should give up those 14 weapons that he is personally fond of. I only have 5 that I could care less about but a perpetrator should worry immensely about, while he states that in his 71 years he has never had to use a weapon for “self protection” , I know more than 7 who have used their weapon for self protection and 6 are women and I ain’t close to 71.
You see, this is where these people who push for “gun control” get me cold. It is OK for them to not only have weapons but also have armed protection because they are people who “know better”. Conversely, you — the knuckle dragging fool with the low IQ would not be entitled to such a defense. Good ole “Col Larry” states that his weapons are for “sport and hunting” – he can hunt equally effectively in his Virginia neighborhood Whole Foods with 1 strong pair of glasses and a fat wallet ….., BUT should he shoot a prospective robber in the head with one of those sporting pieces — remember he did not mean it. Should YOU defend yourself and shoot an assailant to avoid a robbery or rape, YOU are over -reacting because in his 71 years he has never had to do such a thing. What a liar and jerk.
This is the reality of the self hating, self declared , self flagellating Republican. They believe: “The GOP is responsible for everything bad”. “Look at me, I am not like THEM” they chortle to their friends and associates……. Why, the GOP is even responsible for Sharia Law…… or they are lying about its existence! NO,! WAIT! It is not the GOP, it is Donald Trump! Trump made up “ISIS “in the Trump Tower and he has fake illegal immigrants committing crimes! In fact Col “Larry” also dismissed Muslim violence against gays with some vague “Catholic pedophile” equivalent —- I loathe him (Col “Larry”, I really do.) —- You have never heard this sentiment from me and will never again.
So, Angela why are we talking about this unwise man who you have little sentiment for? Because simply, this type of “stinking thinking” is what will be the end of this “shining city on the hill” whose bright lights are flickering, as we speak , because of opportunists like Col. “Larry”. These are the sick phlegmatic personalities that have plagued the Republican Party for financial gain and personal gain for years and these are the personalities who will lose sight of the fact that you unite behind your team regardless of the person since you have more in common than you have against the presumptive leader. Because it is “loser” thinking to believe that if you “let her win” these initial 4 years, you will have any chance in the future — why would you ? Loser thinking is for losers.
