Quote of the day–Sarah Brady

Our task of creating a socialist America can only succeed when all those who would resist us have been totally disarmed.

Sarah Brady,
for Handgun Control Inc.,
To Senator Howard Metzanbaum.
National Educator 1994, page 3.
[Nice quote. Except it’s totally bogus. I once spent several hours trying to verify it without success and concluded it probably was bogus. I thought I would try again today and almost immediately found what I expected.–Joe]

  1. “I once spent several hours trying to verify it”

    Pfft. Principles are overrated.

    Fake but Accurate!

  2. Sounds fake but accurate to me… I mean, why not do unto them as they do unto us? Only do it harder and more often.

  3. Joe,
    I’m glad that there are bloggers like you who attempt to verify facts and quotes.
    More classes need to be taught on critical thinking and methods of fact-checking. I would not have known how to proceed and where to go with that “quote”.

    Yes, it sounds accurate as to intent. But if we gun supporters are going to defend ourselves against the gun grabbers, let’s do it with REAL quotes, NOT fake ones that can be thrown back at us later, showing us to be fools and idiots.

  4. Sounds like a variation on a theme by John Dewey, who averred many times that you can’t make socialists out of independent thinkers.
