Anti-Rights Retread

Found this via the usual suspects.

In this bit from a show he did in 2014, Jefferies brilliantly and hilariously points out the absurdity of America’s reaction to mass shootings as opposed to his native Australia.

“In Australia, we had the biggest massacre on earth, the Australian government went, ‘That’s it! No more guns!’ And we all went, ‘Yeah, alright then. That seems fair enough.’ Now in America, you have the Sandy Hook Massacre where little, tiny children died, and your government went, ‘Maybe – we’ll get rid of the BIG guns?'”

Remember, the antis are always telling us “We just want ‘Common Sense’ gun regulations, nobody wants to take your guns!” Well except they do.

Of course it’s an old video…and strangely enough I already tore it apart here.

Also interesting as hell that even he says “It’s a comedy show, these are just jokes” yet the antis take is as gospel.

    The part where he said it’s just jokes is what I dislike about that comedy act. Ruins the whole thing, not that that’s a great loss. The anti-gun stuff, hey what else is new. Have your opinion, have fun with it, I don’t care.

    But when Jeffries said it was just comedy or whatever that’s deceptive, because he’s setting up and hiding behind a false dichotomy, that is between saying something as a joke and saying something and meaning it. One can do both. He was joking, but clearly he was also clearly, sincerely, preach-ily anti-firearm. Pretending it’s one or the other is like saying “No offense, but [something crass and offensive].” It’s logically sloppy, peremptory, rude.

    Heck, I find George Carlin joking (negatively) about guns and gun people hilarious. He was openly, honestly negative and obscene toward the subject. The fact that I resemble those remarks makes it more funny. It’s like “hey, George was talking about me”. Notwithstanding that I disagree with his overall bent. Jeffries, in contrast to Carlin, is a rude, preachy, PG-rated clown.
