Non sequitur: Ostensibly comic video calls for the formation of a “black NRA”

posted at 7:21 pm on September 10, 2013 by Erika Johnsen

I know that responding to the likes of videos from Funny or Die is supposed to be super lame because “it’s just supposed to be funny!” and that doing so means that I must simply be devoid of any sense of humor, but a video’s ostensibly humorous and satirical qualities do not excuse the peddling of maliciously false information. I’m sure you all remember that nonsensical and mean-spirited anti-gun rights gem from Jim Carrey awhile back, and Sarah Silverman is out with a new anti-NRA video of a similar caliber.

Excuse me, but… Did Silverman just imply that all black people are criminals? Because, absolutely yes — as an actual member of the National Rifle Association, I am one hundred percent all about the equal application of the Second Amendment to all law-abiding adult citizens. The NRA isn’t busying themselves with advocating that anyone should be denied the right to carry a concealed firearm upon their person because they’re not white — in fact, they actively do just the opposite, and I have no idea from where it is that these self-imagined satirists think they’re getting this garbage. “This ‘stand your ground’ law, it’s for everybody, right?” …Right. The right to self-defense is an indisputably equal-opportunity protection that should be afforded to all upstanding Americans, and nobody — and certainly not the NRA — ever said otherwise.

An epic rebuttal, via Twitchy:

Wow. Sort of against interest… or something?

What is one to think of this? “They have a point. We can’t arm the blacks, so we should disarm the whites.”

I dunno. This is going to take a while to sink in.

Too bad Obama is a lot more serious about disarming Americans than he is Assad. If all he ever wanted from us was a blank piece of paper that said “gun control”, I could get on board with that.

They don’t even have to be ‘upstanding’ citizens. During the Zimmerman prosecution fiasco, when the “Stand your ground was for whites only” meme was being pushed, I did some looking and found a case in FLA where an ex-con was afforded the protection of Stand Your Ground, with the judge noting even an ex-con has the right to self-defense. That ex-con happened to be black, too. There was another, similar to that, wrt to a black man who appeared to be not quite currently upstanding at the time. I don’t know what the outcome was but it appeared he was winning it on STG defense at the time.

Axe on September 10, 2013 at 7:50 PM

Yeah, putting aside the fact that Silverman is not funny and never has been, what is the point of this question? The NRA’s stated position is exactly what they seem to be wondering about. The NRA supports the right of every person of legal age, and not a felon, to own a gun.REGARDLESS OF RACE OR ANY OTHER FACTOR. That includes young black males of legal age. Silverman mentions a “fund” at the start to give people guns. When has the NRA ever advocating giving free guns to anyone? Maybe to Rifle clubs for safety classes but certainly not to individuals. I don’t know. In the 19th century did they give out gun free?

Ha. It’s not the first time the low-info “we support minors illegally carrying firearms” crowd tried the topic here:
 

Now explain to us why large cities insist on making it so difficult for these poor and disaffected to defend themselves?

 
Right, because the NRA believes Trayvon would have been OK if he had just had a gun. Oh wait, they’ve made no such statement. The NRA isn’t interested in black gun ownership, humble your wig.

I don’t see the point, but sure, why not. Considering anti-guns laws were typically designed to disarm minorities it could be useful. Oh, this is supposed to be a joke?

Well let’s examine this, shall we? What is the implication here of this so called joke? That those of us who support a right to bear arms should rethink that before scary blacks start taking that right seriously as well? That it’s bad idea to support a right to bear arms because scary blacks can arm themselves as well? Is that what this “joke” is trying to tell us here?

I swear, if these people were any less self aware they would forget to use a toilet when it came time to relive themselves.

It was, bit the implication is also that if we don’t want the Trayvon Martins of the world armed we better give up our right to bear arms. Because, according to Sarah Silverman, all young black men are violent criminals.

If you took a limousine-liberal’s politics and spread them out on the kitchen table, you’d see that “poor black people” need to be fed, clothed, and otherwise taken care of. I don’t mean “poor” as in broke. I mean poor Jim, let me pat you on the head. “Soft bigotry of low expectations” is right, if an understatement.

The disdain for “flyover country” is disdain for a bunch of sister-groping, drooling, banjo-pickin’ inbreds, no smarter than noble and righteously-indignant blacks, but inherently wicked.

All the people (themselves excepted) are children, there are good kids and bad kids, none of the kids should have guns — duh, and evil Rethuglicans manipulate and use the bad kids to maintain power with even more cliches wearing top-hats and running The Corporations™.

– All that leaves alone stupid cliches about “male and female,” where the hits just keep coming. :)

They are the most racially obsessed and bigoted people since the people I’m not supposed to compare them to. All they can see when they look at a person is the group that person belongs too.

Silverman, probably, actually believes she’s cool for making that stupid video.

Hat Trick on September 11, 2013 at 8:03 AM

S.S. is one of the ruling class’ many vampy tramps. Her favorite “John” is the straw man and the elephant in this room isn’t Sarah’s demented ego, it’s her oppresion. Evil knows no color, and political correctness has been one of history’s most successful forms of oppression. By slander. It requires, and so far, achieves immediate subservience. It creates a natural byproduct as subtlety as constant phone bill, a second or servant/slave class.
The rebuttle here is easily marginalized by the elite ruling class. The “classiness” and wit he offers is really not appreciated from a servant, and mocking only goes one way. Down. Silverman brought a broad bladed knife to a public performance. Nowhere near her first time. Our shocked, offended response is met by our masters with, “Shut up second class citizen!” “Oh you people just have no sense of humor.”
We can mock ourselves of course. A Sarah Palin joke is acceptable even if you apparently barley possess the intelligence to wipe yourself (watch Silverman’s vid again). The ruling elite class demands people of actual character content (Palin, Bachman) to be destroyed through their political correctness. While baby killers and pedophiles (Goesnell, Kevin Jennings-former “safe” school czar),) are protected (you think Goesnell was their only butcher? He just got waaay too sloppy) and promoted (Jennings’ currently is a commanding general of the new Third Reich indoctrinating our children to be their future servants/slaves/rape victims)
I confess there isn’t a written law against me as a servant having a sense of humor at this time. But then given the history of our president, highest ranking member of the racist, baby killing, pedophile party, and his regard for written laws…
I’m sorry, did I say something wrong? I suffer tyranny poorly.

Dear Sarah.

Just because you’re a f$#*ing idiot that doesn’t know how to handle, use, clean or store a gun doesn’t mean that the rest of us don’t as well.

The Constitution (you know it, the document that the foundation of our government was based on?) clearly states that the right to bear arms shall not be infringed. That statement does not designate a color, so why are you?

Blacks, whites, browns, yellows, blues, reds….they can all register, take a class, learn how to handle a weapon and own one should they so choose.

You just need to get over yourself and stop thinking that anyone really cares what you think. They like you better when you pretend to be someone else on screen. Never forget that.

Sincerely,

Americans for Freedom as it was meant
