Today on “Obsession” – “Who’s a-fraid of the N-R-A – the N.R.A. – the N.R.A?”

Last Thursday, Michael F said :

“Hmm…you don’t often hear the person who’s job is to see the laws be faithfully executed say fuck the law…

But, best as I can tell, the wingnut response has been…crickets. Nothing.”

Well, let’s go to Wingnut Central and have a look-see. (composite thread)

‘I think you’re afraid of the NRA’: Trump blasts Republican lawmakers in bipartisan meeting
businessinsider ^ | February 28, 2018 | Michelle Mark

Posted on 2/28/2018, 3:25:32 PM by Berlin_Freeper

President Donald Trump held a freewheeling White House meeting on Wednesday to discuss various gun-control measures, at one point jabbing a Republican senator over his reluctance to raise the age of all gun purchases to 21 from 18.

“I think you’re afraid of the NRA,” Trump said to Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, arguing that raising the age limit was “something we have to think about.”

“A lot of people are afraid to bring it up,” Trump said, referring to the National Rifle Association’s vehement opposition to the proposal. Some Democrats, such as Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, smiled and nodded at Trump’s remarks.

Toomey said his reservations were due to fear that such a regulation would punish the “vast majority” of 19- and 20-year-olds in his state who own rifles or shotguns and are “law-abiding citizens.”

>> Dumb move. He is being ill advised.

I have found that Trump’s “off the cuff” remarks are the ones that most illustrate his mindset, and Trump himself has said as much. I don’t think this is about being ill advised, I think this is what Trump believes.

Even if it’s not, Trump said it, and he’s the President.

I supported him. I have questioned some of his choices. This has done it for me. If he goes along with chipping away at the 2A, I am done.

“Trump is a populist not a conservative. Sometimes popular ideas are conservative and sometimes they are idiotic. This is an example of Trump being an idiot.”

That kind of nails it.

He’s selling us out and guaranteeing the Dems will take both houses in 2018.

He also just said police in Florida should have took Cruz’s guns no matter what the law said. Getting close to jump the shark territory there. God help us.

Trump: ‘Take the guns first, go through due process second’ The Hill ^ Posted on 2/28/2018, 4:10:16 PM by RevelationDavidPresident Trump on Wednesday voiced support for confiscating guns from certain individuals deemed to be dangerous, even if it violates due process rights.“I like taking the guns early, like in this crazy man’s case that just took place in Florida … to go to court would have taken a long time,” Trump said at a meeting with lawmakers on school safety and gun violence.

“Take the guns first, go through due process second,” Trump said.

  1. I have to keep telling myself:

    “there is no peak wingnut
    there is no peak wingnut
    there is no peak wingnut…”

    Or as Buzz Lightyear would say “To INFINITY! and BEYOND!

  2. So this sig line seemed out of character for Cicero,

    faithhopecharity (“Politicans aren’t born, they’re excreted.” -Marcus Tillius Cicero (3 BCE))

    Intrigued I looked it up and found a mystery. Google suggests that the only source for this quote is “some” wacko posting on any number of winger sites, and one strange outlier. A Goodreads quote posted by username Rashid whose taste in books seem to trend towards Islam, philosophy, and Ursula le Guin.

    What is happening here? Either we have a case of two extremes bending far enough to meet on the far side, or Rashid is playing a very subtle long game against either the world of wingers, or against Goodreads. There is a story here, I am sure of it.

    For the record, Vince Lombardi did say that “Leaders aren’t born, they are made.”

  3. Freepers never fail to entertain. I remember telling one Freeper before the 2016 election that she better pray to any god she believed in and some she doesn’t that Trump didn’t get elected. My advice went unheeded.
