Gun hypocrisy

Stories like this make me laugh, then after I think about it my blood pressure boils.

There is a guy who runs the non-profit group Media Matters.

Media Matters makes its living off private donations from liberals like George Soros who look for anything they can to shut down what they call right-wing news and commentary.

They mainly are trying to find hypocrisy or inconsistencies in conservative talk show hosts and writers.

The guy who heads up this she-band is a man by the name David Brock.

Brock is a born-again liberal who at one time was a conservative writer.

He claims to have some sort of road to Damascus conversion seeing the light and now just cant do enough to shut conservatives up.

He's been in the limelight lately because there have been reports Brock's Media Matters has an in with NBC news and is heavily influencing it's news content.

Criticism has been raining down on Brock as of late.

Reports all over Washington D.C. say he is getting paranoid about his safety.

So, what does a liberal who takes donations to go after Second Amendment lovers do?

He hires a personal body guard with a glock pistol to watch over him.

Yup, that's what I said.

Media Matters reportedly took more than $400,000 from the Joyce Foundation specifically earmarked to promote a $600,000 initiative on "gun and public safety issues." And now look what the head man is doing.

D.C. has strict gun laws and there is concerns that Mr. Brock's bodyguard may be out of compliance with gun laws there.

No matter.

Rules don't apply to Mr. Brock as he tries to take on the right.

Rules for thee, but not for me.

That's my point of view, what's yours?

Charles: it's not just Mr.Brock; check out the Illinois democrap machine. Do you remember Mayor Daley? The one who was so against anyone in Chicago having a firearm; yet he went around with armed bodyguards. They are not anti-gun; just anti-gun for anyone not in their elite "progressive" circles!

Rollinson, your 8th grade teacher just called and said she wants you to return the schools computer. Grow-up and find something to contribute other than your everyday rants. A conservative speaking, so you won't go into your stupid defense against liberals.

Hey, I'm a Liberal and I've never been against guns. I have lots of them. Just because a person is Pro-choice, Pro-Gay-Rights, Pro-Healthcare, Pro-Helping the hungry, Pro-Science, etc. etc. etc. and *gasp* an Atheist doesn't mean they're automatically anti-gun.

Well, even a broken clock is right twice a day.

The problem with the broken clock is that you don't know when that 'twice a day is.'

DemoCRAPS/Progressives/Liberals are this country's would-be royalty which in their thinking ENTITLES them to special rules or exceptions just for them.
