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.

Eight new lawsuits against Meta, Instagram ‘for exploiting young people for profit’

Published

Lawsuits have been filed in Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Missouri, Tennessee and Texas against Meta, the parent company of Instagram and Facebook. The allegations are heavy, claiming “users’ prolonged exposure to Meta and its platforms has led to actual or attempted suicides, self-harm, eating disorders, anxiety, depression and reduced ability to sleep, among other mental health conditions” reports Fox Business.

The eight new lawsuits were filed by the Beasley Allen law Firm filed a series of complaints this week accusing the company of “exploiting young people for profit.” Meta is also accused of employing additive psychological tactics to get people to use their platforms more frequently and failing to protect young and at-risk users, according to a press release from Beasley Allen.

“The defendants knew that their products and related services were dangerous to young and impressionable children and teens, yet they completely disregarded their own information,” Beasley Allen attorney and Mass Torts Section Head Andy Birchfield said in a Wednesday statement. “They implemented sophisticated algorithms designed to encourage frequent access to the platforms and prolonged exposure to harmful content.”

Referencing detrimental information that was unearthed during an October 5, 2021 Senate hearing which included  testimony from Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen, the whistleblower who accused Meta of prioritizing profit over attempts to stop public harm.

“Social media use among young people should be viewed as a major contributor to the mental health crisis we face in the country,” Birchfield said. “These applications could have been designed to minimize any potential harm, but instead, a decision was made to aggressively addict adolescents in the name of corporate profits. It’s time for this company to acknowledge the growing concerns around the impact of social media on the mental health and well-being of this most vulnerable portion of our society and alter the algorithms and business objectives that have caused so much damage.”

Prior to the October 2021, hearing, Instagram acknowledged that its app can be harmful for young users after The Wall Street Journal released internal documents summarizing findings by researchers tapped by the tech giant to examine the app’s impact on young users’ mental health over the past three years. The study found that 32% of teen girls who “felt bad about their bodies” said Instagram made the issue worse, according to WSJ.

Fox Business reports:

U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy issued a new Surgeon General’s Advisory in December 2021 warning of a growing youth mental health crisis amid the coronavirus pandemic as many young people spent time away from physical school and activities and more time online. 

Early estimates for 2020 show more than 6,600 suicide deaths among U.S. youth, ages 10 to 24, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Emergency room visits for suicide attempts among adolescent girls, in particular, rose by 51% during the pandemic, and emergency room visits among adolescent boys increased by 4% during the same time period, CDC data shows. Even prior to COVID-19, one in every five U.S. children between the ages of 3 and 17 experienced mental, emotional, developmental or behavioral disorders, a CDC report shows.
