[Update] Please see updated information regarding this story here. In short, Chick-Fil-A has NOT posted itself as a “gun-free zone”.[/UPDATE]
Well, now, this is interesting.
As regular readers will remember, I went to Chick-Fil-A on the first of this month to support them and show my disdain, to put it politely, for those governmental lackeys who would tell a private corporation where it can and cannot build based off nothing more than the personal [...]
I do not oppose homosexual marriage; in fact, I firmly believe that mature, adult human beings should be able to freely enter into whatever contractual arrangements they so desire, so long as they are doing so of their own free will. Furthermore, I believe that the federal, state, and local governments should get their happy little noses out of the “marriage” business entirely; that is a matter between the the persons getting married, their god(s) [...]
Well, this whole Martha Boggs kicks Stacey Campfield out of her restaurant thing has been… enlightening, if nothing else.
Apparently, for some people, some discrimination is a-ok so long as they disagree with the person being discriminated against but it should be strictly, legally verboten in any situations they feel appropriate (in other words, logical/internal consistency fail), while those those same people (and others) have no problems misrepresenting other people’s positions and words.
This is [...]
Why do "gun control" extremists hate women, the weak, the infirm, and the old?
Small size, light weight, and good balance make them [Personal Defense Weapons (PDWs)] particularly handy for women, who usually have less upper body strength than men. Unfortunately, these useful personal protection devices have been heavily regulated since the 1930s, and completely banned for civilian production in 1986. These bans discriminate against the smaller and weaker Americans – exactly the [...]
Sometimes, when I am trying to find quotes for this category, I have to dig pretty far, or stretch the original meaning of the quote a bit much for even my tastes… but sometimes, a person’s comment is just so blatantly bigoted, so absurdly narrow-minded, and so obviously antagonistic that it is almost like the author was volunteering to be featured here.
Today’s quote is one of the latter.
Below is a slightly-modified [...]
Helpful hint to Michael K. Beard: giving Ladd Everitt the keys to the Twitter account for the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence* might have been the worst idea ever, unless, of course, you want your organization to look increasingly worse every day.
In the very recent past, Ladd has directly attacked a "gun violence" survivor for daring to speak from experience, he has expressed his bigotry for the entire world to see (through your [...]
As a reminder to my readers, the word “bigot” generally means, “a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices, especially one exhibiting intolerance, and animosity toward those of differing beliefs”. This behavior is generally identified by a person’s refusal to accept or even acknowledge any information, facts, or figures that contradict or disprove their personal opinions; an overwhelming desire to dominate a conversation through the use of carefully-crafted insults, [...]
I might care about your misogynistic bigotry if it was even loosely based in this thing we like to call “reality”.
But it is not.
So I do not.
Instead, I will simply sit back and watch your ass get handed to you by a woman a fraction of your size who is already more capable, more self-reliant, more independent, and more an adult human being than you could [...]
It has been a little while since I did one of these, so I will remind everyone of the ground rules – the below quote came from Dennis Henigan, but it has been modified slightly; to wit, four words have been changed to five other words. I would stress that this is not the original quote, but I would strongly argue that my changes do not change the overall tone, mentality, or bigotry of the [...]
My, how the times change… A few years ago, every anti-rights organization in the country was drooling all over themselves at the prospect of getting the most anti-firearms President in recent history into office. After all, then-Senator Barack Hussein Obama supported making the “Assault Weapon” Ban permanent in addition to banning private firearm sales by closing the non-existent, mythical “gun show loophole”, he discriminated against firearm owners, he was the director of the notoriously anti-rights [...]
Today we are going to kill two birds with one stone and combine a “quote of the day” with a return to the “bigotry, exposed” category, with today’s comments being provided by none other than the thankfully-inimitable MikeB302000 in this comment thread over at Joe’s. As a reminder, blockquotes in this category are edited slightly, and are not exactly what the original author wrote – in this case, I only changed two words.
Historically speaking, firearm registration invariably leads to firearm confiscation – the only significant variable is time.
This was true in Canada:
Ten months after Rock’s remarks, Parliament passed the Canadian Firearms Act, and confiscating legally owned firearms is precisely the first thing the new law did. The first of three major provisions to go into effect banned private ownership of well more than half of Canada’s legally registered pistols. Any handgun of .32 [...]
After writing this comment, I told Robb that it was damned near a post’s worth of effort… so I figure I might as well make it one:
Huh. I read your oblique comment on your more-recent post concerning open carry, Robb, and never thought to check back here. Slow on the uptake, I am. At any rate, I am about to link-whore myself to death on this comment thread, but that is part of [...]
Today, we are going to return to the tactic that prompted me to create this category in the very beginning… In Southern Beale’s latest anti-gun screed, she started off whining and moaning about how her previous anti-rights blather seemed to attract some less-than-salutory comments and attention; however, I find it all too amusing that she would wish nearly a hundred million Americans dead (which she did in that previous post), and then try to claim [...]
