I’ll preface this by reiterating that Chris Christie supports amnesty for illegal aliens and he’s also for citizen disarmament. So my opinion of him is already pretty damn low. Along with a lot of fiscal conservative types, I did at one point have some respect for him for his confrontations with New Jersey’s more destructive union elements, but frankly, he burned whatever credit he had by supporting illegal aliens.
Now, as to the so-called “Bridgegate” a week or so ago where some bridge connecting two parts of the East Coast that really deserve each other, the only point I have that’s of much interest is the relative media coverage in contrast to Obama’s national scandals, many of which have body counts attached to them.
A bridge on the East Coast got closed because of political payback, and it’s a huge story.
Hundreds of Mexican citizens and two US federal agents get murdered, and it’s a “fake scandal”.
A US ambassador and support staff are murdered by terrorists, and it’s a “fake scandal”.
Obama’s IRS – the most powerful agency in the world – is used to target US citizens because of political payback, and it’s a “fake scandal”.
Now, I will give credit where it’s due.
CNN anchor Don Lemon is an anti-gun lunatic and possibly a gun law breaking criminal with less than zero objectivity on that subject as evidenced by his behavior at the end of last year; but to his credit, watch the following:
Don, there might be hope for you yet. Maybe the presence of that black rifle is changing you like some kind of mystical talisman.
But if you think being a gay black news anchor is tough, try asking Democrats questions that go against the party line.
Again, though, any modicum of respect I once had for Christie based on his financial pushes has been obliterated by his love for illegal aliens and support for statist gun control. So I really don’t care about his decision or non-decision, involvement or non-involvement with a bridge that I will never drive across, because in both states that are connected to it – I have no right to self-defense and illegal aliens have more rights to state protection than I do.
He’s an East Coast politician in a place where ultimately his policies aren’t really different between parties.
But at least we got a couple funny macros out of it.
