This is Part 2 of a two-part series. We are discussing and critically analyzing the rhetoric of the antis, in the form of a speech by President Barack H. Obama after the “Universal Background Check” proposed legislation failed in the Senate.
We dedicate the entire episode to looking at this speech. We do this because we need to understand the duplicitous language that the antis use. After the recent Navy Yard shooting in Washington, DC, the antis will try again. And again. And we need to be ready for it.
We like consistency in our arguments around here. That’s the only truly Liberal (note I didn’t say Democrat) way to do things. Likewise, we don’t care for inconsistent arguments, especially when it’s deliberate. That’s neither Liberal nor Conservative; that’s just plain lying. And we don’t go for that around here.
Previously we took apart Atty. Gen. Eric Holder’s snowjob regarding Second Amendment issues. This time, we take on an equally inconsistent snowjob by his boss, Pres. Barack Obama. We need to do this, folks, because this is the same set of arguments the antis are going to use after the recent shooting at the Navy Yard. And they’re just plain wrong. I’m going to break it down and show you how and why they’re wrong.
This is Part 1 of a two-parter episode due to the amount of material there is to cover.
Also, I tell you what I think of Emily Miller’s recent book, from a pro-2A Liberal’s perspective, now that I’ve finished reading it.
