    Michael Moore: ‘Calm Down, White People, and Put Away Your Guns’ | American Renaissance

    These libs just don't get IT! Since he was using the Russian analogy . . . but his example was a complete non sequitur. A true statement would be: "I understand why the Russians would be scared because during the 30s, Stalin had a little less than a million of them executed . . . some in mass graves containing 20,000 corpses. During 1937-38, there were 1,000 executions a day. So, it is understandable why Russians would be FEARFUL of their government and want to possess firearms to PROTECT themselves."

    Michael Moore: ‘Calm Down, White People, and Put Away Your Guns’
    Elizabeth Harrington, CNS News, December 26, 2012

    Documentary-maker and liberal activist Michael Moore said the reason for mass shootings in the United States is largely due to fear and racism, and on Christmas Eve he pleaded, “calm down, white people, and put away your guns.”

    In a blog post entitled “Celebrating the Prince of Peace in the Land of Guns,” while still calling for stricter gun-control laws, Moore said such laws will not stop mass killings because of “who we are” as a nation.

    Three things, according to Moore, make America unique in its violence: poverty, “fear/racism,” and the “me society.”

    “We’re an awfully fearful country considering that, unlike most nations, we’ve never been invaded,” he said. “Why on earth would we need 300 million guns in our homes?”

    “I get why the Russians might be a little spooked (over 20 million of them died in World War II). But what’s our excuse?” Moore said. “Worried that the Indians from the casino may go on the warpath? Concerned that the Canadians seem to be amassing too many Tim Horton’s donut shops on both sides of the border?”

    “No. It’s because too many white people are afraid of black people,” he said. “Period.”

    Moore continued: “The vast majority of the guns in the U.S. are sold to white people who live in the suburbs or the country. When we fantasize about being mugged or home invaded, what’s the image of the perpetrator in our heads? Is it the freckled-face kid from down the street—or is it someone who is, if not black, at least poor?”

    “I think it would be worth it to a) do our best to eradicate poverty and re-create the middle class we used to have, and b) stop promoting the image of the black man as the boogeyman out to hurt you,” he said.

    “Calm down, white people, and put away your guns,” said Moore.

    In his blog, Moore said that Connecticut’s tough gun laws “did nothing to prevent” Adam Lanza from killing 20 children and 6 others at the Sandy Hook Elementary School.

    Tough gun laws “won’t really bring about an end to these mass slayings and it will not address the core problem we have,” Moore said. “Connecticut had one of the strongest gun laws in the country. That did nothing to prevent the murders of 20 small children on December 14th.”

    He said a “dirty little fact” liberals do not want to discuss is that the “killer only ceased his slaughter when he saw that cops were swarming onto the school grounds—i.e, the men with the guns.”

    “When he saw the guns a-coming, he stopped the bloodshed and killed himself,” Moore said of Lanza. “Guns on police officers prevented another 20 or 40 or 100 deaths from happening.”

    “Guns sometimes work,” he said.

    I wonder how many people know about the sacking of our capital in 1814. I'd love to see an "on the street" video of this one.

    @BTPost...funny, I had never read about that. Thanks
    Great quote from the wiki article below and a kudos to those that maintained fire discipline on both sides.
    It's good that we're all cousins now and can razz each other

    "Baynes refused, deciding that "two great nations in a war over a squabble about a pig" was foolish.[5][7] Local commanding officers on both sides had been given essentially the same orders: defend yourselves, but absolutely do not fire the first shot. For several days, the British and U.S. soldiers exchanged insults, each side attempting to goad the other into firing the first shot, but discipline held on both sides, and thus no shots were fired."
