Alex Jones was wrong on CNN. The scenario that he shouted about is 1861, not 1776...

but I don't think he understands the difference.

1. Alex means well.. basically he is correct.... but...

 

.....but you have GOT to keep your act together.

Alex should have stated his facts and remained cool... more people would listen...the honey vs vinegar theory...

I know the frustration of watching our country go down the tubs.... but he didn't score any points this way.

2. Not only that. He stated Chavez "took away the guns" in Venezuela. Which is a massively

stupid thing to say. There are way too many guns in Venezuela and their crime rate is out the ass. if anything the government encourages civilian militias to be armed.

But hey, guess who also got dates and facts wrong........ HITLER! Oh and Mao also.

6. Yep, and Thom Hartmann talked about the true purpose of the Second Amendment:

To protect the country and the government from foreign and domestic threats. First threat on the list after the Constitution went into effect was the Whiskey Rebellion, which George Washington ruthlessly put down, leading the troops himself.

And yes, the War of Southern Treason also falls in that category.

Of course, today, we don't use citizen's militias. We have a modern standing military and police forces for that.

14. Which part of

"well regulated Bubbas in camo" do you not understand? Modern standing military and police forces are wimps compared to these righteous 2nd Amendment defenders with their AR-15s and dented Ford F-150s.
