Liberals in Hell

epiminondas writes:

You have to admire the sheer chutzpah of Bay Area liberals who continue to parade their PC credentials in the face of overwhelming reality. I have no doubt these brave fools would raise a huge stink if it were suggested they arm themselves.

    I’m surprised, I had thought Oakland had been getting much better in recent years. Even trendy in spots.

    It’s a bit of a mystery to me what the substantial connection between the linked clip and your point about Bay Area liberals is supposed to be.

    One, I didn’t see any parading of PC credentials. Perhaps I missed something?

    Two, it would be easy to use this clip in order to argue for more gun control, so it isn’t that easy for any Tom, Dick and Harry with an impulse control issue and a desire to make money without working to get a .45.

    Nice old ladies should be packing heat? I don’t get it. It looks like they’re doing what they can.

    Steve Sailer is probably right on this one:

    The endless gun-control brouhaha, which on the surface appears to be a bitter battle between liberal and conservative whites, also features a cryptic racial angle. What blue-region white liberals actually want is for the government to disarm the dangerous urban minorities that threaten their children’s safety. Red-region white conservatives, insulated by distance from the Crips and the Bloods, don’t care that white liberals’ kids are in peril. Besides, in sparsely populated Republican areas, where police response times are slow and the chances of drilling an innocent bystander are slim, guns make more sense for self-defense than in the cities and suburbs.

      As the recent killing of a white by blacks in Oklahoma illustrates vividly, red state conservatives are NOT insulated by distance from the Crips and Bloods. Gangs are all around, even more so than in large urban areas whose neighborhoods are divided by race, class, and wealth. Without the benefit of weapons, white people in red states with large minority populations would be cowering in their homes. But they aren’t. Why? Because potential predators know very well that whites in these areas are armed and willing to use those weapons. Remember: when seconds count, the police are only minutes away. If you find yourself in an area where violent crime is common, you have two realistic options: arm yourself or move out. A cell phone and prayer beads will only get you so far.
