Watercooler 7/21/16; Anti-RNC Protestor Tries To Burn Flag, Sets Himself And Other Protestors On Fire; Chris Mathews Is An Arse; Everything Is An Assault Weapon


This is my kind of protest

Carl Dix, a representative of Revolutionary Communist Party, said the group organized the burning of the American flag as a “political statement about the crimes of the American empire. There’s nothing great about America.”

Unfortunately for our poor victim of the American Empire while he was busily trying to set a flag on fire, he managed to set himself on fire and some of his fellow protesters on fire.

Protestor lit flag on fire, then lit himself on fire, catching others on fire. Flames extinguished by firefighters. No serious injuries.

So I guess he did make the point, communism is self destructive and stupid.

Chris Mathews Scolds Mother Of Benghazi Victim On National Television.

“I don’t care what that woman up there, the mother has felt,” Matthews said. “Her emotions are her own but for the country in choosing a leader, it’s wrong to have someone get up there and tell a lie about Hillary Clinton. It’s not true.”

—-Real Clear Politics

Well Mr. Mathews I don’t care what you feel. But calling the mother of a dead patriot a liar because you sold your soul to the Clintons is wrong. It’s wrong to have you get up there and distort the news.

Attorney General In Massachusetts Looses Mind

Democrat Attorney General Maura Healey announced today that she is unilaterally redefining what constitutes an “assault weapon” under Massachusetts law, in order to outlaw the sale of the most popular firearms sold in the United States

Healey also states that firearms that have “has components that are interchangeable with those of a banned weapon” are also illegal. This is even more ripe for abuse than the blatantly unconstitutional and flippant “essentially the same” operating system test, as many firearms—including those that are clearly not “assault weapons” by even the most insane definition—share components with firearm on the list.

—Bearing Arms

Think about that, if you can use the trigger, the magazine, or sight from another gun, your gun just became an assault weapon.
