Ride The Michael Moore Recursion

Now is the time at Ed Driscoll.com when we juxtapose!

The Blaze, yesterday, with video:

Appearing on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show, liberal filmmaker Michael  Moore expressed his bewilderment as to why the United States is such a “violent” country and wondered aloud why anyone would want to own a gun.  According to Moore, people only own guns because they’re racist and “afraid” of “people of color.”

Gabriel Malor at Ace of Spades yesterday on “Designated Villains and the Tea Party:”

The third assumption is that carrying guns is somehow bad, a common one among liberals. This is paired with the idea that the bad guys carry guns. Unsaid and apparently forgotten because it undermines the reporter’s point is that civil rights activists relied on firearms for protection in the 1960s. They recognized the danger they faced, and armed themselves for protection and quite openly let others know that they were armed.

More on Moore: At Big Hollywood, Steven Crowder writes:

In a recent interview with MSNBC’s Richard Maddow, Michael Moore stated that people own guns because they are racist. He prefaced his comments with this:

“Everybody’s packing there… everybody has guns. Yet they all said that we have a very low gun murder rate here in Tuscon.  So why do you have a gun then?”
