Second Amendment

Kimmel's Clueless Condemnation

He chastises those who advise against politicizing the atrocity in Las Vegas by citing the First Amendment.

Is Jimmy Kimmel looking to start his own religion with his expressed ability to look into the hearts and minds of people and enter into judgment against them? Or does he merely have his sights set on running for head of the Democratic National Committee? Tuesday evening he followed up his Monday evening emotion-filled rant against Republicans and their support of the Second Amendment. Kimmel decided to climb even higher up that self-righteous ivory tower of his to rain down contempt upon those who dared criticize him for his immediate politicizing of the atrocity in Las Vegas the night before. Kimmel blasted:

They say it’s inappropriate to be talking about it because it’s too soon. Well, maybe it’s too soon for you because deep down inside you know, in your heart, you know you bear some responsibility for the fact that almost anyone can get any weapon they want. And now you want to cover yourself until the storm of outrage passes and you can go back to your dirty business as usual. But it’s not too soon for us, because we’re Americans, and last time I checked, the First Amendment is at least as important as the Second Amendment.

Three things. First, no one has stopped or prevented Kimmel from exercising his First Amendment right to freedom of speech, as attested to by the fact that he is still freely speaking on his own TV show about what he’s feel so passionately about, no matter how misguided, illogical and flat out false it may be. No one even called for his free speech rights to be taken away. That’s what his campus leftist fanboys do.

Second, if it wasn’t for the protections afforded by the Second Amendment he obviously hates so much, he wouldn’t be enjoying that First Amendment. Freedom, Mr. Kimmel, is never free. People fought hard to win that freedom you so flippantly malign.

Finally, rather than actually focusing on those directly impacted by this atrocity by offering emotional comfort and encouragement, and rather than seeking ways to promote good will and healing and unity, Kimmel instead chose to promote division. He chose to stand on the bodies of the victims in order to condemn his fellow Americans who had absolutely nothing to do with this mad man’s massacre. In his politically correct self-righteous superiority, he judged his fellow citizens, declaring them guilty — for believing in and defending Liberty. Mr. Kimmel, this is why you should have waited to speak, because all you have done is sow greater division.
