[VIDEO] Sometimes you just have to scream at the television when a Liberal makes such a ridiculous claim. The New York Times op-ed columnist, Bret Stephens, created just such a moment on MSNBC. The subject was guns and the shooting at the Sutherland Springs First Baptist Church.
Mr. Stephens told the host that there has NEVER been a time when guns were used by Americans to protect themselves from political violence. yes, he really made that claim.
It is not clear what his education level is, but American history was not a part of his learning. The Minute Men used their guns to protect us from His Majesty’s political violence back in the Revolutionary War. Hitler spewed his political violence all over Europe and Russia and was defeated by men with guns. Probably one of the more assinine videos that you will ever sit through.
As Written by Ryan Saavedra for the Daily Wire:
In the wake of Sunday’s horrifying church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas, a “conservative” op-ed columnist for The New York Times claimed that Americans have never once used guns to protect themselves from political violence.
Times columnist Bret Stephens claimed that there was not a “single instance” of any American having ever “used their guns to protect their liberties,” NewsBusters reports.
“I think it – there’s a romantic notion that somehow if Leviathan comes to take everything you have, you’re still going to have a gun with which to protect yourself,” Stephens said. “I’d like, I’d like conservatives to point to a single instance – what is it, the Whiskey Rebellion, was it the Brinks robbery, other acts of political violence in the United States, where conservatives who are saying they used their guns to protect their liberties? You won’t find a single instance of that.”
