Alex Jones calls for a boycott of the NFL, NBC and host Bob Costas after they scapegoated the Right to Bear Arms for an athlete’s murder-suicide tragedy has overtaken media wavelengths.
Within a day after Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher’s and his girlfriend’s deaths, the establishment launched a surprise attack on the right to bear arms and the Second Amendment using guns as a scapegoat to distract from the most-likely culprit: the concussion-inducing, psychotropic drug-addicted, gladiatorial thug, celebrity rock star culture plaguing the NFL.
This past weekend on Sunday Night Football, sports commentator Bob Costas, with the full support of NBC and the NFL, indicted the “gun culture” as he quoted an article by Fox Sports columnist James Whitlock which blamed guns for the sad killings that took place. He read the following publicly on air to millions of NFL viewers across the country:
“Our current gun culture ensures that more and more domestic disputes will end in the ultimate tragedy and that more convenience-store confrontations over loud music coming from a car will leave more teenage boys bloodied and dead.”
“Handguns do not enhance our safety. They exacerbate our flaws, tempt us to escalate arguments, and bait us into embracing confrontation rather than avoiding it. In the coming days, Jovan Belcher’s actions, and their possible connection to football will be analyzed. Who knows?”
However, blaming guns for the deaths is like blaming spoons and forks for obese people.
There can be no mistake that the Costas incident was a flagrantly bold, covert and coordinated attack on citizens’ gun rights, but this episode is just the latest in a series of pathetic attempts in the course of the Obama administration to subvert the Second Amendment.
The current president’s lengthy resumé of attacks on guns speaks volumes about his attitude towards Americans’ right to bear arms.
In the book Debacle, Obama is quoted telling author John R. Lott, Jr., PhD, “I don’t believe that people should be able to own guns,” while both worked at the University of Chicago Law School in 1996.
While running for a Senate seat in Illinois, Obama filled out a survey by a liberal Independent voter organization saying that while it is politically impracticable, “restrictions on the sale and possession of handguns are necessary to protect the public safety.”
His response to another question in the same survey is equally disturbing. To a question asking, “Do you support legislation to ban the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns, assault weapons and ammunition for handguns and assault weapons?,” Obama reportedly answered: “I would support banning the sale of ammunition for assault weapons and limiting the sale of ammunition for handguns.”
Months before the Fast and Furious gun-walking fiasco surfaced, Obama had reportedly met with gun control advocate Sarah Brady telling her he was working on the gun issue “under the radar,” and that gun regulations were “very much on his agenda.”
“In the meeting, she said, Obama discussed how records get into the system and what can be done about firearms retailers. Her husband specifically brought up the proposed ban on large magazine clips, and she noted that even former vice president Dick Cheney had suggested that some restrictions on the clips might make sense,” wrote Jason Horowitz for the Washington Post.
Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder is on record 15 years ago saying we need to “brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way,” and at an October debate during his campaign for a second term, Obama said, “What I’m trying to do is to get a broader conversation about how do we reduce the violence generally. Part of it is seeing if we can get an assault weapons ban reintroduced.”
It can now be counted on that every time there is a random act of violence involving firearms, the event will be used to further eviscerate the Second Amendment and restrict gun rights.
Are we witnessing the “brainwashing” Holder talked about?
Let’s not forget they fired Hank Williams Jr. from performing the intro to Monday Night Football after decades simply for expressing his belief that the presidency was turning into a dictatorship, clearly indicating who the corporations and networks answer to.
Now is the time to stand up to these establishment control freaks, to these social engineers that try to blame every tragedy on, not just the Second Amendment, but our freedoms in their efforts to disarm America, as so many others countries around the world have already been.
We need to ask ourselves: Why is the NFL endorsing an attack on the most bedrock of American freedoms that almost no one else in the world enjoys? It’s because firearms are the hallmark of a free society and the last thing standing in the way of a complete global takeover of the U.S.
It’s time to boycott the NFL, NBC and Bob Costas unless they come out and apologize and repudiate their attack on the rights of millions of gun owners across the country.
In response to Bob Costas’ unmistakable declaration of war on the Second Amendment, Infowars.com is launching a new contest looking for the best video taped open letter to Mr. Costas telling him why the Second Amendment, citizen gun rights, the Bill of Rights and the Constitution are essential to a free society.
The contest aims to call attention to the media’s blatantly transparent efforts to control and shape public opinion in regards to firearms.
Additionally, everyone is encouraged to mail spoons with notes to Mr. Costas because, by his own logic, spoons are responsible for the rising obesity epidemic that has claimed the lives of millions of Americans.
