Ed Schultz’s “hard nosed, blue collar, straight talk” attitude had a brief moment of popularity over at MSNBC before it quickly got old and the network cancelled the controversial show.
Now, Ed Schultz has found a home on a podcast where he was been doubling down on his nonsensical policies that no one wanted to hear about on television but now apparently are dying to hear on their computer.
Got a soft spot for the oldest written constitution in the world, the one for which every president upon taking office must swear an oath to preserve, protect and defend?
Then you’re clearly a “jackass” according to Ed Schultz, who joins a long sordid list of lefties who can’t hide their contempt for the founding charter that George Washington once described as “a guide which I will never abandon.” Yes, he was the Father of our Country, but clearly didn’t have a clue.
There he was on Friday, venting about GOP opposition to more laws restricting gun ownership in the wake of the San Bernardino bloodbath, when it became apparent that his loathing for Republicans also extends to the Constitution.
“So what has to happen here, folks, and this is political tough talk — if the Democrats don’t want any silence, then they have to speak up and just tell the American people we can’t get anything done on gun violence because Republicans are in the way. Put it on the obstructors. Put it on the people who always defend a piece of paper that was two hundred and twenty-five years old or whatever, back in a society that doesn’t even exist today, the Second Amendment. There has to be rules and regulations for a contemporary society.”
There it is. The typical argument we see from liberals that whenever the Constitution gets in their way, the solution is to toss it out the window and write a new one because those old racists 200 years ago didn’t know what they were talking about.
This mentality goes against everything our country was founded on. This notion that somehow the founding fathers — who produced the most brilliant document perhaps in human history — were somehow so dumb that they didn’t understand that technology would ever advance and society would ever change, is asinine to put it nicely.
The rules are the rules and if you don’t like them, you go through Congress and the American people to amend them.
But that’s the glaring problem Schultz and his supporters run into.
The American people don’t want to do away with 2nd Amendment.
By an overwhelming margin.
While Schultz clearly believes he is smarter than George Washington, the American public absolutely don’t.
If you haven’t heard of Ed Schultz before, here’s a great sample.
Honestly, you could lose an entire day watching clips of this guy on YouTube.
This is what we are dealing with on the left…scary stuff.
