Drudge Lets the Mask Slip A Bit Further

Politics • Views: 23,961

Well, we have known for a long time that Matt Drudge has been scraping the bottom of the barrel. Whether it’s catering to the Alex Jones conspiracy set with link after link to Infowars and similar conspiracy nut sites, or feeding links to white supremacists and racists, his promoted links have jumped the proverbial shark.

So, it’s not particularly surprising that he’s decided to come out and directly compare President Obama’s suggestion that he might use executive orders to move ahead with gun control (not gun confiscation) measures in the wake of a series of mass murders with the actions of Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin.

I’m rather surprised he left off Mao and Pol Pot from the trumped up nonsense.

Never mind that the comparisons are specious and misleading. For starters, the gun lobby’s favorite quip about Nazi Germany and confiscation of guns is pretty much wrong. It’s reached the level of myth that the Nazis banned guns before undertaking the Second World War and Holocaust.

Germans had no right to bear arms between the 1919 constitution and the 1928 Gun Law. That was in the aftermath of World War I. Hitler rose to power in 1933, and Hitler’s government further revised gun regulations in 1938 to deregulate ownership and transfer of rifles and shotguns.

Nazi Germany did restrict guns, but specifically directed the restrictions against Jews (along with the rest of the Nuremberg Laws that were designed to treat Jews as subhumans).

Now, there are some on the right who are gleefully pointing out the irony that some on the left are dismayed by Drudge’s comparison of Hitler to Obama when some on the left made the Bush=Hitler comparison. That’s weak tea and meant to divert attention from the fact that Obama isn’t doing anything even approaching what two of the worst tyrants of the 20th Century did. It’s a further demonization of President Obama and meant to undermine the President’s potential ability to shape the gun control debate.

After all, the President and US Supreme Court (including most recently in Heller) have recognized the sanctity of the individual right to bear arms. The difference is that most Americans actually understand the need to regulate the right and to keep firearms out of those who should not be allowed near them. It means tightening up existing laws and regulations, improved enforcement, and working with lawful firearms owners to make sure that those weapons don’t fall into the wrong hands.

Gun control is not gun confiscation.

Jeez, man: why are you trying to confuse all us Real Americans with all that fancy “logic” and stuff? If simple-minded idiocy and hysterical inappropriate analogies are good enough for Matt Drudge, they should be good enough for everyone!

So they have no problem in comparing the architect of the Holocaust to President Obama? Seriously? Over yet unknown gun control measures?

5 lawhawk  Wed, Jan 9, 2013 3:27:58pm

Thanks for the promotion.

The gun lobby wants to make gun control equivalent to gun confiscation. It’s what the NRA says. It’s what the gun lobby says. It’s what the right wing says.

And it couldn’t be further from the truth.

There are damned good reasons to consider improvements to the current systems - More than 30,000 of them in fact (the tally of dead by firearms of both homicides and suicides; the tally is far higher for non-fatal shootings and the health care costs for all this is staggering). A good number are preventable and we’re leaving it off the table because the NRA doesn’t want to budge?

It doesn’t have to be this way, but the right wing simply wont budge from it’s absolutist positions. Even when they claim that they’re for something like a mental health registry (which to have real teeth would require mental health screenings for everyone on a periodic basis to prevent firearms from falling into the wrong hands), once you get into the nuts and bolts, you’ll find them looking to weaken it at every turn.

Oh, and in a related item - Jim Hoft (I wont linky) was busy crowing that Wal Mart refused the invite to participate in the VP gun discussions. Except that Wal Mart did agree to participate (and cue the call that Obama forced Wal Mart to participate). And by the time stamps on all this - he posted that they weren’t going for at least a couple of hours after they agreed to.

There are good reasons that a supplier like Wal Mart wants to participate. It wants to help shape policy in a way that’s favorable to them - namely minimizing their liability. That could take the form of actual liability insulating policies, or getting behind a database to check against or any number of other items.

One hapless moonbat went so far as to equate Bush with Idi Amin, prompting me to remark that I would accept that when Bush started dining on deceased Democrats.

At this point, I think the NRA’s doing all the work necessary to marginalize them. PPP announced the other day that, in the aftermath of LaPierre’s little tantrum on live TV, approval of the NRA dropped 10%. If the NRA is truly committed to screaming that anybody who talks gun control in the wake of 20 dead children is no different than Hitler, then that number’s only going to keep falling.

Yeah, I went to high school in a tiny rural community in Indiana. All of my classmates are rednecks and hillbillies of the first order.

I so want someone to make a painting, or photoshop, of President Obama holding the Lance of Longinus, standing next to the Ark of the Covenant in the Suleymanie Mosque in Istanbul with Rasputin (as played by Karel Roden in Hellboy) at his side.

113 kirkspencer  Wed, Jan 9, 2013 4:52:03pm

I have a simple goal. I agree with the NRA in that I think responsible people should have full access to firearms. I disagree in that I do not want the irresponsible people to have access to firearms.

Closing my eyes or buying more guns will not deny access to the irresponsible people. Instead it will take two separate, simultaneous actions.

First, all weapons must be registered. It may not be possible to reach 100%, but all of them manufactured with a serial number should be reachable. Possession of an unregistered firearm should be a felony.

Second, we need a list. It’s either an opt-in or an opt-out list, but we need a list. Opt-in is people pass certification - training, mental health, whatever - to be identified as (nominally) responsible. Opt-out is that people who cross certain thresholds - criminal, mental, situational (separation, divorce, job loss) - are identified as irresponsible. The former must expire but be renewable, the latter must be reversible. Either way, a seller or giver of a weapon must be able to determine if the person receiving the firearm is responsible or is not irresponsible. And if a firearm is used by an irresponsible person, law enforcement can backtrack it to the nominally responsible person who let it get used irresponsibly.

Better be a theft report, or someone is going to go from responsible to irresponsible, and may even face charges if the crime and circumstances warrant.

The funny thing is the framework of this is in place. If you don’t look too hard it’s there with dealers having to do a background check. But the registration database is not maintained (prohibited by act of congress) and the checks are only required of licensed salesmen, not private individuals. And the background checks are criminal only. But again the framework is there. In some ways all that’s needed is to change it from an open sieve to a tighter steel mesh.

…And because he swore to defend the Constitution, he is automatically a preeminent constitutional scholar, who can decide when things are constitutional and when they are not, and decide it better than Congress and the president and the Supreme Court, because he is the man who keeps you free. He is the FLESH AND BLOOD OF AMERICA, for chrissakes. You have to listen to him, and, obviously, to invite him on Fox News so he can make Hitler allusions.

To question his legal interpretations would be unpatriotic, and it would be tantamount to shitting on Old Glory if you pointed out that he was (ostensibly) defending the American democracy, which kind of includes legislators making fucking laws…

Nothing quite like that. Used a good recipe from a cookbook that incorporates milk or yoghurt in the recipe to help with the moistness. I went spicy in this one with extra hot sauce in the loaf and glazing with Pic-a-Pepper sauce.

besides, one thing that wingnuts totally and completely miss is the fact that the real left wing sites have for a long time practically (and often actually) classify obama as little better than a republican

for example the drone strikes go down very poorly among the denizens of daily kos and eschaton, as they should

black and white, manichean universes are found mostly in wingnuttia, that’s the real distinction

even leaving out the “patriot” act, we are still living in an era with greatly limited privacy. consider this:

- when i actually use paper money for a retail transaction these days, i get a slight illicit thrill at the fact that i have conducted a purchase that leaves no permanent electronic trace that can be read by any agency with access to my bank records. wow, i just bought a banana and nobody will ever know that it was me!!!

- if, say, you were a government with totalitarian leanings that wanted all its citizens to carry devices that constantly broadcast their location as determined by gps, would it conceivably be possible not only get mass acceptance of this intense level of surveillance, but actually even get the citizens to pay for it themselves? enthusiastically, even? really??

yes, you can - it’s called “smartphones”

It’ll be interesting to see how the PR battle plays out but finding the biggest idiot available to represent the opposition is cheap gimmick. My concern is with the executive order angle which is probably the only way gun control (or anything else these days) is going to pass. I think we’re setting ourselves up for some problems down the road. It gives way to much power to the executive, but even worse, that power is only temporary. The next president, who may or may not be Republican, can just as easily reverse these orders or simply not renew them. If too many executive orders are piled up this is going to create some pretty wild swings in the law of the land every few years. It’s a disaster waiting to happen.

Surely the calls from RWNJs to water down or repeal existing gun control laws will come soon.

It is crystal clear that the NFA of 1934 and the gun control act of 1968 would be 100% opposed by the NRA et al. if proposed today as new legislation.

In April, numerous conservative blogs, including Fox Nation, NewsBusters, Atlas Shrugs, Jammie Wearing Fool (who later pulled his post without explanation) and, as always, Jim Hoft, picked up an absurdly sketchy report “circulating the Kremlin” that French President Nicolas Sarkozy had called Obama “insane.”
