This just in: If you oppose gun control, you might just be an Antisemite

According to MSNBC, that is.

Background: loathsome nanny-state Mayor (1) Mike Bloomberg has been on a crusade since the Aurora and Newtown mass killings to take New York City’s extremely restrictive (and, in my opinion, unconstitutional) gun laws nationwide, spending millions of his own money to pressure (2) Congress and various state legislatures. In reaction, defenders of the right to bear arms have been very critical of Bloomberg, both on policy grounds and his overall infatuation with statism. (3)

On America’s “lean forward” network, however, it couldn’t be that you oppose Bloomberg because you believe in the right to bear arms or that, in general, government should stay out of people’s private lives. Nope. If you oppose Bloomberg, it must be because you hate Jews:

According to MSNBC contributors Mike Barnicle and Al Sharpton, opposition to New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg’s gun-control push is partly the result of anti-Semitism. “Let’s get down to it, Mike Bloomberg, mayor of New York City, there’s a level of anti-Semitism in this thing directed towards Bloomberg,” Barnicle argued on Morning Joe, “It’s out there.” “No doubt about that,” Sharpton responded.

“If he was not a big-city Jewish man and was from another ethnic group, in some parts, I think it would be different,” Sharpton continued. 

If you can’t win on the facts, fight with slander.

At PJM, Bryan Preston reminds us that both Barnicle and Sharpton are a bit lacking in the ethics department:

Mike Barnicle, who a few years back was caught plagiarizing, and Al Sharpton, who a few years before that built his career by accusing an innocent man of rape, have resorted to smearing those of us who think New York Mike Bloomberg should at least confine his overbearing nannyist instincts to the city that actually elected him.

So I guess we shouldn’t be surprised at this latest bit of poo-flinging.

It’s all they have left.

(1) That Allahpundit has such a way with words.
(2) Or buy, judging by the results of the recent primary election in IL-2.
(3) And that’s putting it nicely. Michael Walsh comes right out and calls Bloomie a liberal fascist.

    If I oppose gun control, i.e. Support the 2nd amendment in context with protecting all of them- because we all know that’s what this is all about.– but now if I oppose gun control, I’m anti-semite. Wow. What a stretch. From people who want to see Israel taken off the map. Struggling with the logic….

  2. Lorica says:

    I had no clue Bloomberg was Jewish until now. LOL Of course I don’t really care what some big city slicker thinks or does just because of the fact that he is a big city slicker. LOL

    When are these doorbells going to realize that these guilt trips are having less and less the desired effect?? Eventually people are going to be immune to this guilt or they are going to rationalize it away. I would like to see what proof these buffoons have to back up their ridiculous statement. – Lorica

    Californicators inflict us with such luminaries as Pelousy and DiFi, but at least they are elected to national offices.

    I can’t really say NYC inflicts us with the likes of Dumbberg because it is he himself that inflicts his intemperate self on the rest of the nation.

    But just like Nazi, DiFi, Dingy and Chucky Cheesy, I wish they’d all go away and leave us common folk to live our lives while the guvmint did its constitutional duty and protect us from enemies foreign and domestic, like people that fly planes into major buildings, like people who shoot up innocent soldiers on military bases, and like people who kill our ambassadors and others while destroying our embassy property overseas.

    Is that too much to ask of my guvmint? Apparently it is.

    So now we of the great unwashed need Gloomberg, faux fount of all knowledge, to enrich our lives with his time-honored wisdom on left-wing gun grabbing? As the rebellious Texans’ flag read during the Fredonian Rebellion, “Come and take it”. They can have mine when they pry it from my cold dead fingers.

  5. Great White Rat says:

    Well, Sharpton knows an anti-Semite when he sees one. In fact, he sees one every day when he looks in the mirror. Remember, this is the same clown who made a name for himself in New York as a “community organizer” agitating against white jewish interlopers in Harlem. By the way, in case anyone forgot, that ended in a racially motivated case of arson that killed 8 people.

  6. Tom TB says:

    They sure don’t know history. It’s “gun control” that’s anti-Semitic, and anti-Black. German Jews had their guns confiscated when the Nazis stripped them of their citizen’s rights, and recently emancipated Blacks were prevented from buying guns in the jim crow South.

  7. Carlos says:

    That’s why Big Al is all for “gun control” (more like gun confiscation!): he is simply a house boy that is stupid enough to think his massas will give him some control over “his people” when his massas remove any means of fighting back.

    And yes, Al, I just called you a house boy, just like you’ve called Dr. Carson, Tom Sowell and Clarence Thomas.

    TomTB makes a good point. There is a video on Jim Crow era gun control called “Never Again” which may be viewed at
