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.

Supreme Court agrees to hear student debt forgiveness case

Published

Six Republican-led states which are challenging the Biden admministration’s student loan forgiveness program will be heading to the Supreme Court.

Earlier this month a federal appeals court in St. Louis sided with Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and South Carolina, and issued an injunction blocking the plan to provide up to $20,000 in student-loan relief money to millions of individuals.

The Biden administration subsequently asked the Supreme Court to intervene. Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar asked the Supreme Court to lift the injunction.

“The Eighth Circuit’s erroneous injunction leaves millions of economically vulnerable borrowers in limbo, uncertain about the size of their debt and unable to make financial decisions with an accurate understanding of their future repayment obligations,” Prelogar, told the Supreme Court in a filing.

Prelogar told the court that if it denied relief, it should agree to consider the merits of the case instead.

CBS News reports:

The court said in a brief order that it will hear arguments in February, but will keep the program on hold for now. Last week, President Biden extended his pause on federal student loan payments until June 30, 2023, to give the court time to consider the dispute.

“We welcome the Supreme Court’s decision to hear the case on our student debt relief plan for middle and working class borrowers this February,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said. “This program is necessary to help over 40 million eligible Americans struggling under the burden of student loan debt recover from the pandemic and move forward with their lives. The program is also legal, supported by careful analysis from administration lawyers.”
