MSNBC ‘anti-racist educator’ says 2nd Amendment came from Founders ‘afraid of Black people’

gun sales in us rise coronavirus

Self-proclaimed ‘anti-racist educator’ Tim Wise argued on MSNBC that America “loves its guns more than it loves its children” during a segment discussing to horrific Uvalde, Texas elementary school massacre.

Wise also said gun ownership has deep roots in racism, stating our Second Amendment was included in the Bill of Rights not for protection against government tyranny but to stop slave rebellion.

“Let’s be very clear, the historical precedent for that, the reason that we’re so obsessed with guns and personal gun ownership going back to the Second Amendment is because the Founders were so afraid that Black people were going to rebel against enslavement, that indigenous people would rebel against being pushed off their land and killed and removed that we wanted to make sure that White men could have all the guns that they could possibly possess in order to put down the rebellions of the dangerous racial violence,” said Wise.

He added, “So the irony is we now have a dangerous country for everybody’s babies. White babies, Black babies, brown babies, everybody’s babies because White men a couple hundred years ago decided we needed to have all the weapons we could possibly have and enshrine that in the Constitution to defend against those people, and the irony now is that White folks, White children, White families just as endangered.”

“This country loves the ability of an 18-year-old, the day they turn 18, to go buy a weapon of war than they appreciate the right of a 10-year-old to become 11 or 12 or 13 or 18 so let’s be very clear. The difference between Canada and the United States, Australia and the United States, New Zealand and the United States, every industrialized nation in the world versus us is that we fetishize weapons,” Wise said.

“We’re a less safe nation for everybody’s babies because of this obsession, and this obsession goes back hundreds of years, so we need to understand the connection between past and present and realize that we’re a sick and broken culture. We are not the greatest nation on earth any longer if we ever were. We’re a nation committed to an ideology of death and if we want to stop that and save our children, we’re going to make a change,” Wise concluded.

Another guest on MSNBC’s “ReidOut”  accused the GOP of sacrificing children to “the god of gun ownership.”

    There is no evidence for this opinion. How does he explain the fact that the majority of shooting of blacks is committed by other blacks, not by whites?

    Right. ‘Whatever It Takes’ to get guns out of the hands of so many Americans so that the NWO crowd can take over the country with so much less fuss, and we can live in their global gulag like the nice little serfs that they want us to be. I can hardly wait. Not.

    Second Amendment does not mention hunting, burglar or color of skin. This guy is lying to whoever reads his trash or listens to him. And JB, there’s noting in it that prohibits cannons, either.

    I don’t recall any mention of slaves in the Federalist Papers discussion of the Second Amendment. Tim Wise is laughable; the founders had no fear of blacks, being well-armed against anyone rebelling against the colonists.

    Well Tim, I bet you’re on board with the rest of the hypocrites er uhhh Demoncrats regarding Roe v Wade, Infanticide and the “choice of the mother” to murder her child in the womb. Tell me I’m wrong! And you twist and distort the founding fathers reason for the second amendment to further your agenda? Really? What a doofus!

    This is nutcase rhetoric.
    The Bill of Rights throughout is about We The People, protecting us from Big Gov’t trying to overreach their authority and controlling the American people thru tyranny. This person is just continuing the narrative that everything is about the “Poor Abused Blacks”, which has nothing to do with the 2nd Amendment, which was written and included in the Bill of Rights in 1789.
    The population of black slaves in the United States, which became a new Nation in 1776, just 13 yrs prior to the establishment of the 2nd Amendment, was probably several hundred. At zero time in US history do I think that the American people have been afraid of any particular ethnic group trying to overpower the American Gov’t. In WWII the Americans that were German descendants and Japanese descendants were treated different because of the war.

Hundreds of anti-Israel Harvard students, faculty walk out of graduation ceremony

Videos and reports circulating the internet show hundreds of Harvard University students and faculty walked out of the school’s commencement ceremony on Thursday, wearing keffiyehs and waving Palestinian flags and anti-Israel banners.

National Review reports the Harvard Out of Occupied Palestine (HOOP) coalition, which organized the university’s anti-Israel encampment, posted a video of students marching out of the area in which commencement was held on its Instagram page. The video shows students chanting “hey hey, ho ho, the occupation has got to go” and is accompanied by a caption that reads, “over a THOUSAND of Harvard students and faculty have walked out of graduation.”

Shabbos Kestenbaum, who graduated from Harvard Divinity School on Thursday and is currently involved in a lawsuit against the university over its inaction on campus antisemitism, posted a video on his X account capturing the scene in which protesters — both students and faculty — rose from their seats and walked toward the exit, chanting “let them walk” and “disclose, divest, we will not stop, we will not rest” and inviting those around them to the “People’s Commencement,” an event student activist groups organized as a substitute for Harvard’s official ceremony.

In response to a National Review comment request, Harvard’s media-relations department responded with a section of interim president Alan Garber’s welcome address during the ceremony.

“As our ceremony proceeds, some among us may choose to take the liberty of expressing themselves to draw attention to events unfolding in the wider world,” Garber said. “It is their right to do so. But it is their responsibility to do so with our community — and this occasion — in mind.”

The chants of “let them walk” referred to Harvard’s decision to withhold degrees from 13 seniors facing disciplinary action for their roles in the school’s encampment. The faculty of the university’s arts and sciences college voted in a Monday meeting to provide those 13 students with diplomas, a move the Harvard Corporation — the university’s highest governing body — rejected.

“Each of these students has been found by the College’s Administrative Board — the body established by the FAS faculty to investigate and adjudicate disciplinary matters — to have violated the University’s policies by their conduct during their participation in the recent encampment in Harvard Yard,” the Harvard Corporation said in a statement explaining the decision.

Shruthi Kumar, a graduating senior who gave an address at the commencement ceremony soon after Garber received a chorus of boos, reportedly went off script and slammed the university for its decision not to confer degrees on those 13 students. Pulling a piece of paper from her graduation regalia that was seemingly not included in her prepared and approved remarks, she professed her disapproval of Harvard leadership.

“As I stand here today, I must take a moment to recognize my peers: The 13 undergraduates in the class of 2024 that will not graduate today. I am deeply disappointed by the intolerance for freedom of speech and their right to civil disobedience on campus,” Kumar said. “The students have spoken. The faculty have spoken. Harvard, do you hear us?”

Kumar also discussed what she described as the “doxxing” of Harvard students who signed statements defending Hamas’s actions and blaming Israel for the Hamas terror attack of October 7.

“For many of us students of color, doxxing left our jobs uncertain, our safety uncertain,” Kumar said. “This semester, our freedom of speech and our expressions of solidarity became punishable, leaving our graduation uncertain.”

Kestenbaum, who testified about the antisemitic harassment he’s faced before the House Education and Workforce Committee in February, told National Review he was not surprised by the chaos at commencement.

“Today’s commencement is the natural outcome of months of failed leadership and normalized antisemitism,” said Kestenbaum, who estimated that half of his fellow divinity school graduates walked out of the ceremony. “While students and speakers made sure to interrupt, walk out, and defend their antisemitic peers, no mention of the hostages, Jewish students’ experiences at Harvard, or October 7 was made.”
