Current political leaders "Nut jobs"
By Carl Langley

GUEST COLUMN – If you are wondering just
how bad it has gotten in this country when it comes to fixing blame for
outrageous acts, then I hope you heard some of the inane, absolutely
stupid comments made by people you would expect to know better.
I refer to the commentaries of New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg, New York
congressman Gerald Nadler and MSNBC news reader Contessa Brewer before
the man arrested for attempting to blow up a busy street in New York
with a crudely fashioned car bomb turned out to be a Muslim radical.
Bloomberg was the first one out of the box, proclaiming that the
attempted bombing of the New York street had to be a “right wing” nut
job. Then came Nadler, saying, without a scintilla of proof, that it
had to be the work of a right winger, Tea Partier or an aggrieved
But Brewer was the most outlandish of the bunch. She gets her award for
stupid because of her wishful thinking. She told a liberal talk radio
host she hoped the attempted bomber would turn out to be a member of
the Tea Party or some other conservative protest group and not some
The comments by these three know-nothings show the liberal mindset that
has managed to take this country by the throat and is well on its way
to destroying this society, once the envy of the entire world.
The most shameful of all is Bloomberg, who made it into the ranks of
the billionaires thanks to his ability to play the financial markets.
It’s a shame that his ability to make money isn’t connected to an
ability to determine who and what is to blame for outrageous behavior.
Bloomberg, if my recall is correct, is the same man who talked the
political hacks on the New York City Council to enact an ordinance
allowing him to serve a third term. He is the same man who sent
undercover operatives into several southern states to buy guns at pawn
shops, hardware stores, sporting goods shop and the like in his
misguided, one-man campaign to get tighter federal gun laws enacted.
It took the Supreme Court to put this self-serving excuse for a mayor
in his place by ruling that the Second Amendment grants American
citizens the right to keep and bear arms. Unfortunately, the legal slap
in the face to Bloomberg didn’t disperse the fog that clouds his mind.
Bloomberg is a disgrace because he wants to deprive lawful citizens of
the right to own a gun to protect themselves, while ignoring the fact
that lawbreakers have ready access to all the guns they need, When
caught carrying a gun New York’s criminals get only a slap on the wrist
from a judiciary populated mainly by self-serving politicians with
little grasp of the law.
When the perpetrator in the attempted bombing was caught he turned out
to be a Pakistani Muslim, who holds American citizenship granted less
than five years ago. If you are a Muslim you can rest assured your
citizenship ticket will be punched before the ink is dry on the
documents. The jihadist told investigators he planned the mass murder
scheme in retaliation for American forces killing his fellow murderers
I have not heard Bloomberg, Nadler or Brewer apologize for their stupid
comments, but that‘s the way it is with liberals. They say something
stupid, then lapse into silence when the facts prove them wrong. If a
conservative made a foolish statement the liberals would be screaming
for apologies or corrections.
People like Bloomberg, Nadler and Brewer take refuge in silence, which
usually is a coward’s best way out. Just hunker down and let it all
blow over. But there always are a few (like me) who refuse to let these
dolts get away with it.
