Think about it

Via Elisabeth Diamond @diamactive2001:


At first I thought this was awesome. It’s not just old white guys supporting the right to keep and bear arms to protect themselves from a slave rebellion. Gandhi in this category might be a surprise to some, but it’s true (see also here). Martin Luther King Jr. is another which might also surprise people, but again, it’s true.

But after more thought I realized the tyrants listed are actually admired leaders to some. For example, Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong each murdered 10s of millions of their own citizens after disarming them. But yet, there are still people today that not only advocate for the political philosophy of these tyrants but admire the tyrant for their accomplishments.

Hence, freedom lovers, as well as hard core Marxists, can both look at this image and find it supporting their world view. When you think about it, that’s kind of weird and messed up.

  1. And that is also true for Trump tweets. Each group can interpret given their world view. Greenland: left: stupid, right: good idea.

    We all see and hear what we want to see and hear. There is no bad press.

    So much for rationality!

    • Speaking of Greenland, it isn’t all that widely known that Denmark has sold colonial possessions to the US before. The precedent is the US Virgin Islands, formerly the Danish West Indies, purchased by the US in 1917.

  2. funny, go read some left site comments and they are saying the exact same things we are with the people reversed…so yes, it comes down to what side of the fence you are on and how you see the world…

  3. There’s potentially one other candidate for the group on the top:

    If someone has a gun and is trying to kill you, it would be reasonable to shoot back with your own gun.
