Reid said, “Sadly, there is nothing more quintessentially American than fireworks and gun violence.”
Really? Americans who don’t hate this country would say that there is nothing more quintessentially American than a freedom that Reid could not enjoy anywhere else in the world. And why does it make Reid sad that we celebrate the Fourth of July with fireworks? How should we celebrate? With woke finger snapping instead? Let’s face it: what she really hates is that we celebrate America at all instead of wallowing in racial guilt and self-flagellation.
“So far we’ve had more than 350 mass shootings this year,” Reid continued, citing a completely misleading, bogus figure. “According to a recent survey, around 1 in 5 Americans has lost a family member to gun violence, 1 in 5. More than half of American adults have said that they or a family member have experienced a gun-related incident, more than half. Violence, terror and trauma doesn’t happen in a vacuum. This country is awash with guns and the gun lobby is using its power to both increase access to them and to expand gun owner’s right to shoot first and ask questions later.”
She continued, “I have to say, I did not go out on July 4 and would not. The idea of going to a mass gathering, a parade, or a big fireworks thing outside seems insane to me, to be blunt, in America because America is awash with guns, and now people don’t just have them. They seem to want to shoot people with them and use them for whatever, you know?”
“Use them for whatever, you know?” What does that mean? How does this incoherent, fear-mongering, bitter propagandist have a job posturing as a serious political commentary? Oh, that’s right – she works for MSNBC.
