Biden, Bloomberg Describe Second Amendment Supporters with Vulgarities and Slurs
What is it with the elitist political class and their insulting, arrogant, even vulgar comments about gun owners and others who live in Heartland America? It’s been going on a long time and continues to this day, even though it gets gun control supporters nowhere.
In 1985, then-New York governor Mario Cuomo said that people who oppose mandatory seat belt laws are “hunters who drink beer, don’t vote, and lie to their wives about where they were all weekend.” A few years later, the late Sen. Edward Kennedy--of Chappaquiddick infamy--accused the NRA of being in an “unholy alliance” with drug pushers, because we opposed legislation to ban general-purpose semi-automatic rifles like the AR-15.
Then, in 2008, then-presidential candidate Barack Obama said that Americans who live in small towns “get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them, or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”
Now, with the November elections approaching, the task of motivating anti-gun voters by telling them that they’re smarter and more cosmopolitan than we are is being taken up by Vice-President Joe Biden and America’s self-absorbed, self-appointed national nanny, Michael Bloomberg.
