NFL Player Jovan Belcher’s Murder/Suicide and the (Expected) Liberal Reaction

Posted on Dec 4 2012 - 10:52am by Harrison

Jovan Belcher got into a fight with his girlfriend and mother of his child, murdered her then shot himself.  Then NBC’s Bob Costas tells us the following:

In the coming days, Jovan Belcher’s actions and their possible connection to football will be analyzed. Who knows? But here, wrote Jason Whitlock, is what I believe. If Jovan Belcher didn’t possess a gun, he and Kasandra Perkins would both be alive today.

If Belcher hadn’t been born Perkins would be alive today.

So what?

Costas quoted from the column of Jason Whitlock who compared the NRA to the KKK:

You know, I did not go as far as I’d like to go because my thoughts on the NRA and America’s gun culture, I believe the NRA is the new KKK. And that the arming of so many black youths, uh, and loading up our community with drugs, and then just having an open shooting gallery, is the work of people who obviously don’t have our best interests [at heart].

Of course, it was the NRA who helped blacks defend themselves from the KKK (composed of Democrats) but yet another myth is perpetrated leading to people to think of the NRA as being the same as the KKK which is really just made of Republicans.

And with such lies, misinformation, slander, and faulty logic so does our Liberty die another, small death.

I would simply like to be left alone – along with my Rights – and let those people who have broken the law be punished… leaving the rest of us by ourselves.

And, of course, NFL games and all the VIPs within are protected by… people with guns.  Bob Costas included.

    We did expect this didn’t we? Why is nobody looking at the liberal policies which led to the break up of the American family, the drug use, or the lack of a moral compass as possible reasons for what happened? Of course, we know the answer to that question.

    Did you hear Rush today? About how if only Costas didn’t have a microphone, we wouldn’t be subjected to his idiocy. Therefore the access to microphones should be severely restricted. Incidentally, the founding fathers with their 1st amendment had no idea about microphones.

    Another example of some very disappointing Americans. If Whitlock knew anything about Charlton Heston or the NRA for that matter he might have kept his blabbering mouth shut.

    If I were to stupe to his intellect I might blame dog fights or gambling addictions on the NFL.

    The concept of individual responsibility is foreign to Bob Costas.

    I, for one, do not appreciate political or sociological commentary during a sports event! But, you know, what Costas did is actually a very clever Leftist ploy (Never mind all the fallacies in logic!) and reaches a lot of young people.
