|Republican senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa runs his mouth! He doesn't look at urban gun crime as a problem!|
Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) is a conservative Republican. He's not as nutty as his governor Republican Terry Branstad or Congressman Steve King (R-Iowa), but Grassley is one with them!
In Grassley's warped mind, the notion of bringing up gun control when incidents involving firearms reached an all time high this month alone is an assault on the Second Amendment.
|Soledad O'Brien debates Grassley.|
How many amendments are in the U.S. Constitution?
Grassley with a majority of Republicans are going against the president's proposals to stop gun violence.
An overwhelming majority of Americans would like to see strict background checks and ways to prevent those with mental issues to own firearms.
But that's tone deaf to the Republicans, the National Rifle Association and those in the conservative media.
The nation's oldest cable network CNN is going through a major shakeup! This will soon put Soledad O'Brien on the sidelines. With Jeff Zucker at the helm of CNN, the network will go through a major overhaul of reporters, media personalities and network programming.
In the meantime, Soledad continues to bring the facts to the table and have Republicans and their conservative allies screaming!
Soledad reads from the Centers for Disease Controls report that links youth culture and gun violence and the Iowa senator didn't want none of that.
Also in mention to Hadiya Pendleton's tragic murder this week, Soledad mentions the issue about gun violence in Chicago.
Grassley stated: “Well, I think that’s the place in our society where you would study the issue of black violence on blacks.”
Now again, we got to look at how WHITE CONSERVATIVE MEN think!
They think with this macho bravado of how the United States is always "leading the world!"
They consider themselves the vocal opposition to gun control, Obamacare, immigration, gay rights, urban revival, women's rights, and climate change. Things that paint them more like a bunch of idiots and bigots instead of serious people.
Most of these recent violent incidents happened because of *gasp* WHITE MEN!
They use this phony patriotism to harbor single minded issues like the unanimous support of Israel. They'll go totally batshit over a critic of the Jewish nation, but in turn attack the president! They never think that attacking President Barack Obama is anti-American. This constant hate of Blacks, Latinos and Muslims led to multiple incidents that involved young men and women being killed by WHITE CONSERVATIVE men.
This incident in Chicago as well as many urban communities across the nation are looked upon the conservative media as "failed Democrat policies and President Barack Obama's sons and daughters!"
Instead of pointing out the issues with gun violence they'll scapegoat this as "black on black violence" or the faults of the entertainment industry (i.e. video games, rap music and movies). Stuff they've seen on the late local news.
Sure enough if this incident made it to the suburban school, church or business, then you'll hear non-stop coverage on the major news networks with each political agitator pointing fingers at one another.
(NOTE: Senator Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) is retiring and it's going to be a competitive senate race in 2014).
