It’s from mediamatters.
You might as well title it “Liberal media attempts to discredit conservatives because Obama is looking pretty shitty on the IRS lately and Clinton is looking pretty shitty on Benghazi.”
For the record, here is the FBI’s UCR data on murder in the US:
Weapons2007 2008 2009 2010 2011
Total14,916 14,224 13,752 13,164 12,664
Now, I’m not a mathemagician….. but I’m fairly certain that 5 straight years of a decline in number of murders while the population steadily increases
IS PRETTY MUCH THE DEFINITION OF WINNING.

“Abortion should be legal because if she wants one she’s going to get it.”
“Pot should be legal because if someone wants some they’re going to get it.”
“BAN GUNS AND THEY GO AWAY LOL”
You guys are idiots. Abortion should be legal because if it goes against your personal thoughts and beliefs, that’s fine. But it is NOT up to you to make those decisions for other people. You want women hurting themselves with coat hangers and other things? No. You need to realize that not everyone shares the same opinion as you. This is coming from a girl that was raised Christian and anti-abortion. I developed my own ideas and thoughts— ideas and thoughts that I will not push upon other people. Nobody that is liberal that I know (which is a majority of my friends and colleagues) has said something like that about marijuana. And none of my friends, nor myself, thinks that guns need to be banned. We need to change gun laws up a bit, but there isn’t this huge movement by liberals to ban guns. You’re sheeple that have been fed completely made up stories and are putting an ENTIRE group of people into a box that doesn’t even exist. Maybe I should start generalizing you guys that way. “Rape should be legal because a woman’s body can shut down the pregnancy!” Ah, republican logic.
The liberal position: Let’s BAN assault weapons.
Idiot liberal Tumblr: Liberal’s DON’T want to ban guns.
Me: Wait a minute….. that seems contradictory.
Other idiot liberal Tumblr: I think all weapons should weigh 50 lbs and only be able to fire one shot at a time and require a math problem to reload.
Another idiot liberal Tumblr: Why would ANYONE carry a gun?
Me: Well….I feel pretty comfy with my belief that libs want to ban guns. How about the rest of you conservatives?
PS, only an idiot lib assumes because someone supports gun rights, they’re Republican. Gun rights and other civil liberties are a HUGE part of third party (especially Libertarian) positions.
it is not under attack.
Hey look. A Canadian who thinks he knows aboot the American Constitution. Alrighty there, why doncha let us know how limiting what type of arms I can own and undermining when and where I can carry it is in keeping with the statement “the right of…
So your allowed to have nukes? Maybe a nuclear landmine?
Nuclear landmine???? An experimentally weapons system developed by the US IN THE 50s, which never saw combat and is used NOWHERE in the world today which would be the most useless personal defense weapon (they weigh hundreds of pounds) and simultaneously the most expensive personal defense weapon (in the millions of dollars). Really? That’s your counter-argument?
You basically just asked if people should be allowed to own killer unicorns. Even your fellow libs are cringing at their computers going “damn, this one is making us look bad.”
You never addressed nuclear weapons / bombs.
If you could get a nuclear landmine operational. Afford it and deploy it. Would a person be allowed to use it and own it? You actually never addressed that either.
I said “maybe a nuclear landmine”, referring to it as an example.
I thought I made this clear.
You CAN’T. What if I could defend myself with a laser death ray? Who cares!!! You can’t.
That whole issue aside, it’s not a personal defense weapon. It could not be less pertinent to the weapons debate. You do know what a red herring argument is, right? Or did you just hear it from a friend one time and thought it was a good idea to pretend like you knew what it meant?
haha smoke weed
I love how conservative blogs keep posting these things thinking that it will BLOW PEOPLE’S MINDS, like this is something that no one knows and if they DID they’d OBVIOUSLY be against gun control.
Oh, we all know why libs want gun control. Guns are SCARY!!!!
I mean, why else would you want to ban the ONE gun type that kills the fewest people? There is only one reason. It’s the SCARIEST looking one.
Want to know what ACTUALLY kills people, besides cars? Of course not, you’re a lib. But if you have any friends that aren’t scared of truth, justice and things that work
yeah i’d say that sandy hook was pretty scary. that shooting at the batman premiere? pretty scary. people want high-profile horrible killings to stop and will campaign against those before they will try to stop, say, handgun crimes, or things that happen to “bad people” like shootings in inner cities or drug/gang wars. it’s an ugly fact about the way media works. injustice, certainly.
but that’s besides the point. asking “why work at a local soup kitchen when there are starving children in africa?” is along the same lines as what you’re doing here. misdirection. also morpheus is wrong i’m pretty sure blunts don’t kill very many people
I LITERALLY POSTED THE LINK FOR YOU!!!!!!! THE FBI SAYS SO!!!!!!!!!!!!
I DON’T CARE WHETHER OR NOT YOU THINK MORPHEUS IS WRONG….. BECAUSE IT’S THE GODDAMN FBI WHO CAME UP WITH THAT FACT. IT’S NOT AN OPINION. IT’S NOT SOMETHING I HEARD FROM A BUDDY. IT’S NOT SOMETHING I MADE UP TO GET FOLLOWERS. IT’S LITERALLY RIGHT ON THE PAGE OF THE LINK I POSTED.
WHICH IS TOTALLY BESIDE THE FACT THAT IT’S BLUNT “OBJECTS” NOT DRUGS….. WHICH BY THE WAY, ALSO KILL MORE PEOPLE ANNUALLY THAN RIFLES.
This level of stupid should be criminal. It really should.
Does no one pay attention in history class anymore? Modern roads, IN EVERY CIVILIZATION SINCE THE BEGINNING OF TIME, have all started as foot paths, then cart paths, then dirt roadways, then whatever that civilization’s approximation of a paved road was, then (if needed) that civilization’s version of a highway.
Fuckin’ Interstate 29 between Nebraska and Iowa is essentially built on the Lewis and Clark trail.
Anyone STUPID enough to think that without the government, there would be no roads……..
EVER HEARD OF THE FUCKING OREGON TRAIL, ASSHAT??????
HOW DID ALL THOSE SETTLERS GET TO OREGON WITHOUT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION?????????
Will run the government for 8 days.
We don’t have a problem of lack of revenue, we have a problem of too much spending.
I like how much thought was put into this post and that it was very different than what republicans and fox news have been saying for two weeks.
It’s what republicans have been saying since 2009 dear.
Ooh, I know! How about we go back to taxes under Reagan! That way the Republicans will be happy because we’re going back to the days when their hero (gotta question their taste) was in office, and the Democrats will be happy because taxes will actually be higher than Obama is proposing, and might actually get something done instead of just letting the rich get richer with Bush cuts.
The EXPIRATION of Bush tax cuts is kind of what the whole “fiscal cliff” thing is about. Literally, the recession we fear is going to come because Congress is letting Bush’s cuts expire. If you want to get rid of the Bush cuts, right your Congressman and tell them to just go on vacation. What you want is coming in 2 days. The Bush taxes will go away!
That awkward moment when a liberal is confronted with the fact that what they want…… IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN!!!!!!!!
If your going to post online….. you know what, just don’t post online. For everyone’s sake.
for frequent viewers of our website but this is just such a stunning stat, I plan on posting it repeatedly until the idiot libs get it through their thick skulls.
RIFLES AND SHOTGUNS COMBINED!!!!! KILL LESS PEOPLE ANNUALLY THAN HANDS AND FEET.
AND BLUNT OBJECTS (CLUBS, BASEBALL BATS, ETC.) KILL MORE PEOPLE ANNUALLY THAN RIFLES.
The fact that Steven Crowder got punched in Michigan is, of course, unacceptable, and if they find the guy he should be arrested, etc.
But seriously, you’re going to go into a crowd of thousands of angry people with your frat boy haircut and taunt them, both verbally and symbolically (by being there with Americans For Prosperity), and not expect someone to react badly? Especially a stressed-out middle aged blue collar worker concerned about providing for his family?
Either Steven Crowder didn’t learn shit in middle school, or Fox got exactly what they wanted, by being able to paint, based on the actions of one flawed, angry human being, an entire movement as “violent”.
Either Steven Crowder is an idiot and/or the incident was intentional propaganda, but do everyone including yourself the courtesy of not pretending that this has anything to do with Right to Work legislation and the people who oppose it.
Really? So, what, people should no longer be accountable for their actions?
Wait, what am I saying???? This is great news. Every time I shoot a unarmed kid or woman in Afghanistan, I’ll just tell everyone it was there fault for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. I’ll explain that this Afghani didn’t learn anything in middle school and should know better than to be running around American soldiers while we’re in a firefight. I’ll explain that the woman was an idiot and my action in no way reflects on myself, my unit, or the military as a whole and that this instance has nothing to do with the war on Terrorism.
Or, maybe, you could realize how MASSIVELY hypocritical that post was.
But most people who claim to be conservatives actually do liberal things lmao. change the writing on the gun to xenophobic refusal to accept anything that they aren’t familiar with. Fuckin crybabies lol
I’m nominating lovesdayoff (that screen name just so nicely sums up liberalism, btw) for least well-thought post of the day. When you say things like that, WE CAN ALL TELL YOU DIDN’T GET THE POINT!
