We’ve been silent recently on Views from the Edge. The world doesn’t need one more blah-blah-blah pundit.
But when a candidate (we won’t use the name because the media are flooded with it, to his advantage) tells a crowd there would be “nothing you could do” to stop his opponent from stacking the Supreme Court with anti-gun justices, and follows with “although, the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know,” a memory seems worth sharing.
During a 2013 public dialogue (First Tuesday Dialogues in Chaska, MN) to discuss the Second Amendment in light of gun violence in America, a participant proudly cited a Facebook posting that “the second best thing that could happen to Obama would be for him to be impeached.”
The speaker continues, “And we all know what the first best thing would be….”
What was said the other day in North Carolina is not new. Mr. ____ blamed the media for the widespread criticism of his remark. “Give me a break!” he said.
Insinuations of assassinations never deserve a break. It didn’t deserve a break in 2013. t does not deserve a break in 2016. It’s not a joke. It’s not funny!
Enough said. Thanks for dropping by.
