Some TV hosts clearly don’t have their heads screwed on straight. They say bizarre things, things that simply don’t make any sense, and with a hardline politically left viewpoint (maybe I’m being redundant here).
In other words, they sound like Joe Biden talking about needing to ban “assault weapons.”
One MSNBC host, though, is consistently towards the top of the list for absurd, nonsensical statements such as her recent statement about the 4th of July. Understandably, you may be thinking that she was bad-mouthing the founding fathers and the 4th of July, and it wouldn’t surprise me if she does that quite a bit, too. But, no, her silly take on celebrating the 4th of July is something far stranger. Carlos Garcia writes,
A liberal MSNBC host said she was too scared of the proliferation of guns in the U.S. to go outside of her home on the Fourth of July.
Joy Reid made the comments on her show, “The Reidout” Wednesday while talking about gun control with former firearms industry executive Ryan Busse.
“I have to say, I did not go out on July Fourth and would not,” she said to Busse.
“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?” she added.
Now, maybe that thinking makes sense when she is living in her Manhattan apartment. After all, most major cities in the U.S. are run by gun control supporting mayors, and the violence in those cities is outrageously high.
But outside of her bubble, in the rest of the country where guns are common, violence, including gun violence, is much lower than in cities with strict gun control.
But, hey, if she wants to live in places where people like her vote for people that keep them from living their lives, protecting themselves, and exercising their freedoms, then, she’s welcome to do that.
What she isn’t welcome to do is to try to force the rest of us, the sane people, to turn where we live into violent wastelands, too.
