Bill Maher on the 2nd amendment and Police State USA.
'The only thing that still has bipartisan support in Washington is not giving a shit about civil liberties. And now, the only rights we have left are the guns and no civil liberties left to use the guns to protect. We're like a strip club with a million bouncers and no strippers.'
HBO's Real Time, January 18, 2013.
BILL MAHER: Doesn't anyone care that this is the new normal? I guess not, because gun nuts don't care, and neither do liberals. When Bush did warrantless wiretapping, 'Oh, he was wiping his ass with the Constitution.' But when Obama does it, 'Oh, well, whatever helps Jessica Chastain find bin Laden. We're good with that.'
Both parties compete mightily to appear to be the greater champion of our freedoms, but the only thing that still has bipartisan support in Washington is not giving a shit about privacy. And when you talk to the NRA types, as I like to do down at my local [unintelligible] -- they actually believe that what protects their rights isn't laws, or courts, is that's they have a gun. They think that's what keeps the government from going too far. Without guns, Obama would become emperor and force everyone to gay marry, but he can't because a guy in Kentucky named Skeeter has a .22.
Except that, while you guys were buying guns to protect your other guns, sitting up on the porch there, waiting for Obama's negro army to come confiscate your weapons and go all Django Unchained on your ass, that's when we lost all the stuff in the Bill of Rights about trials and juries and warrants. You see, the Redcoats, they never wanted your gun, they wanted your liberty. And that's why the Founding Fathers said you could have the gun. And now, the only right we have left is the guns and nothing left to use the guns to protect. We're like a strip club with a million bouncers and no strippers.
A must see:
