Recently, Alex Jones went on Piers Morgan and mentioned that Morgan should be deported for his stance that there should be a ban on assault weapons. Jones interpreted this to mean that Morgan was violating the 2nd Amendment, in principle. One response to this interview was very interesting, and that is Barack Obama’s. After the broadcast, the White House released a memo that said the following:
“The White House responds to all petitions that cross the threshold and we will respond to this one. In the meantime, it is worth remembering that the freedom of expression is a bedrock principle in our democracy.” (Source: Politico). It is interesting, this mention of democracy, because as I have said elsewhere in my website, America is not technically a democracy, it is a constitutional republic. It could be perhaps called a limited democracy, but that is about it.
Obama said in his later speech that there will be pundits who will warn of an all out attack on liberty. He said that pundits will do this, not because it is true, but to drum up money for themselves. These pundits will block reform so that nothing changes, so they can keep on making their money.
Jones refers to this speech when he says that it is bizarre, this speech. When Obama was a candidate, he said that he would never try to take people’s guns if he were President. But now he is pursuing legislation that would do exactly that. Obama asked the audience of these pundits to turn their backs on these pundits, to spot their secret agenda.
Jones said that people are sick of propaganda. And that Morgan’s ratings doubled for the week following the broadcast. Obama, Jones saying, is implying that people are crazy for thinking that the government is out to take people’s guns. And Jones plays a portion of the videotaped speech, which shows much applause for Obama’s speech at various points. Jones points out that even the Founding Fathers warned people that the government might take their guns, and that the people should fight it with all their might. What do you think?
