Bob Costas, NFL Surrounded by Armed Security
Breitbart ^ | 4 Dec 2012, | AWR Hawkins

Posted on 12/04/2012 11:32:42 PM PST by george76

Bob Costas' gun control rant was bad but made worse by one key point -- he lives much of his life with the benefit of armed security. (i.e., men with guns).

If you've ever been to an NFL game this point is academic. The number of armed policemen you pass between the gate your seat is incredible. And if you get behind the scenes, in certain corridors, the armed presence can be just as strong (or stronger).

...

Remember when Rosie O'Donnell spent what seemed like years on her gun rants? Those rants lost their effectiveness when the focus turned to her security detail. The same with Michael Moore, and the same with the plethora of politicians, like Sens Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and John Kerry (D-MA) or NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

when we said “Gun Control”, we meant for you.

Now pay your taxes, your government is broke.

Bob Costas and Jason Whitlock remind me of Carl Rowan.

I’ll bet Whitlock is an hypocrite like Costas.

Ya so now he says “I didn’t have enough time to explain”. “ I gave the audience too much credit”

Your such a genius BOB.

So we don’t want to do or say anything about crazy people, but lets take everyone’s guns.

Gun culture, gun clinging, all these are communist words coming from greedy people and celebs, ie. utterly selfish materialistic violents who projects their intentions as they cling to their mikes because that is all they got in their life, otherwise they are complete inadequate lost city phonies. It’s why they have these huge security details.

However, like all liberals I know, they hunger for their kid to become rich tycoons and yet want big government to tax others... they have no bearings and no real thought to what they say. It is bimbo this and that talk, chinese menu disconnected christmas wish list of items as it fits during the day, shelving this or that idea as they go along.

...”Guns for me but not for thee”...

The American royalty, you see, have lives of much more value than thee and me..In fact, they lust to enslave and micromanage our lives and they are succeeding, because, people in American, from the Baby Boomers on, do not understanding or recognize the consequences of dictatorship. It is very frustrating that FOX NEWS and other good journalists who care about whether America goes down, instead of reporting on economics, social and government issues all the time which most people cannot comprehend or understand, should be using their resources, before they are censored, to educate people about the parallels between vicious dictatorships of the past and what is shaping up here right now. Immigrants come here to get away from exactly what they voted for in the last election and they do not know it..How could they? We have no Paul Revere’s to warn them in terms they can understand. The GOP had a shot at it and blew the opportunity and are still blowing it as I write. They are afraid. No heroes anymore.

If those security personnel didn’t have access to handguns, Bob Cost-us wouldn’t have such a big mouth!

...”when we said “Gun Control”, we meant for you.

And, further more, we will demonize you if you do not stand for free birth control and abortions for our great example of modern womanhood, Sandra Fluke. AND, don’t worry about having to cut your groceries to soup beans after your tax increase, to feed your family..It is your responsibility to pay for our increasing food stamp constituency. They are helping to bring about utopia in America which is good for all the collective. Also, the Obama’s need those four million dollar vacations because, you know, they work so hard. Happy Holidays!

He didn’t have time to explain, meaning he thinks we are too stupid to understand what is good for us.

Who in the world would waste a perfectly good bullet on Bob Costas?

For many of us a gun would be the only chance we have to survive an attack by an NFL linebacker.

All I know is that if bad plastic surgeons were banned, Bob Costas’ normal face would be alive today.

There is a simple way to fix this problem::
It shall be a Felony punishable by not less than 10 years in Federal Prison for any person or persons that Uses or attempts to use a Government Granted Privilege for Personal Gain. There shall be No exceptions for any reason EVER.

It shall be a Felony punishable by not less than 10 years in Federal Prison for any Person,persons,group,corporation, or any other entity to solicit any Individual or individuals for the purpose of benefiting in any way by the use of their Government Granted Privilege.

This could also be done at the State level and eliminate all the Limousine Liberals defenses with regards to Personal Safety.

Problems Solved.

I have decided to go through the withdrawal symptoms and banish the NFL from my house till either Costas is fired or NBC loses it’s license to broadcast the games.

This will mean that my son and his friends will have to go somewhere else and I will miss them on game days.

However, we as supporters of the 2nd amendment must take a stand.

My stance is that if Costas and his friends do not like our civil rights them maybe they should pack up and move to England. And I say good riddance.

Costas is not going to like what James Harrison of the Steelers has to say. In the Pittsburgh area we like James.

He remains steadfast in his belief that Belcher's horrific murder-suicide last Saturday -- when Belcher killed his girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins, then drove to the Chiefs facility and committed suicide -- isn't a gun issue, but a people issue.

"Somebody goes out and kills somebody with a knife, you going to blame the knife? Somebody goes out and kills somebody by pushing somebody in front of a train, you going to start cutting off the guy's arms? You going to start blaming people's arms now? It's the person who did it who is responsible.''

Steelers LB James Harrison blames Jovan Belcher, not guns
