Quote of the day—Sebastian

If the anti-gun movement had a patron saint, it would be Gladys Kravitz.

They Still Have No Idea What They Are Up Against
[While this is very close to true and very funny I’m surprised Sebastian is old enough to know who Gladys Kravitz is. I’m pretty sure he could have only see the reruns while I saw the shows when they first came out.

The part of the Kravitz character that well represents the anti-gun movement is she was a mostly ignored, shrill, annoying, busybody, attempting to get innocent people in trouble. Even her own husband didn’t much care for her. That’s a pretty good characterization of the anti-gun movement.

The aspect of Gladys Kravitz representing the anti-gun movement that is not true is that in the TV show Kravitz actually knew to within a small margin of error what was going on in her neighbors house and told the truth to anyone who would listen. Everyone, except the target of her campaign, thought she was a nutcase. The anti-gun movement is either totally clueless and/or is deliberately lying to the public.—Joe]

  1. It isn’t Gladys, she was telling the truth.

    The patron saint would be St. Jude, the patron saint of lost causes. But St. Jude’s intercession is meant to assist in the accomplishment of lost causes, so that isn’t correct either.

    The patron saint is Mr. Magoo, who can’t see anything and bumbles about in a myopic way causing distress to everyone around him, in complete ignorance of his own destructiveness. Yes, Mr. Magoo.

    And I, too, am old enough to remember Bewitched in glorious B&W, as well as Roadrunner cartoons where the coyote makes an impact on the valley floor, in the unexpurgated version of cartoons.

    • How about a new saint of lost causes, St. Joan, (an anti-gun blogger)?

      She cannot be convinced by any amount of evidence and she offers unrealistic goals (i.e. zero gun deaths) so she is a perfect choice.

  2. I used the Mrs. Kravitz comparison in a conversation with my daughter a few years ago, when she was around fifteen years old, and she picked up on it immediately. Apparently some of the on-line TV channels carry Bewitched and she’d been watching it. I didn’t know she’d even been aware of the show.

  3. How about Joseph Stalin?

    “It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.”

    “Ideas are more powerful than guns. We would not let our enemies have guns, why should we let them have ideas?”

    “The death of one man is a tragedy. The death of millions is a statistic.”

    “Death solves all problems– No man, no problem.”

    Yeah; Stalin. His statements are more direct because he was a communist as opposed to a Progressive (which is an incremental communist, meaning they hide behind more subterfuge, attack the underlying culture, and take their time at it) but the fundamental ideas, motivations and goals are exactly the same.

    Mrs. Kravitz’s obsessive, snoopy ways and obnoxious personality are very much representative of the average rank and file Progressive/prohibitionist hag (both male and female hags) but unlike Kravits, Progressives never see the truth and therefore they never get anything right. The price of serving the Dark Side is that you are turned into a mokery of a human being and are made to believe that there’s no alternative.
