This has made the rounds lately through media and it's going viral:




Current and former U.S. lawmakers fell for a prank in Sacha Baron Cohen's new comedy show, backing a program that purportedly teaches kindergarteners how to defend themselves with guns during school shootings, Reuters reported.

Baron Cohen posed as an Israeli anti-terror expert for the first episode of "Who Is America?," touting a "Kinderguardians" scheme that featured weapons adorned with soft toys for children as young as three.

Reps. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., and Joe Wilson, R-S.C., enthusiastically backed the idea, as did gun rights advocates, former Senate Republican leader Trent Lott and congressman-turned talk radio host Joe Walsh.

Who can be the most extreme on the right? That's the name of the game for conservatives these days. It's a race to the top and logic seems to only get in the way. I wasn't actually amused at the fact that Sacha decided to play a disabled vet to prank Palin (as much as I dislike the woman), that was in poor taste... but putting that aside, Christ.... getting these congressman, representatives, people in positions of power, to admit to arming kids? And so easily? That's eye opening. It just goes to show how politically out of whack we've gone.

There's more to come. Stay tuned.

This should be good.
Maybe some "common sense" will come of it- with yesterdays talk of 'assault revolvers' I think it's high time schools have some mandatory 'introduction to firearms' class, where we can at least teach people which end to hold should it ever come to it.
We've probably got more firearms than people in this country- it's astonishing that we let people into society not knowing the first thing about them.

Funny how the people who supposedly abhor "gun violence" think it's a joke that firearms education saves lives and the biggest firearms education organizations in the US like the NRA and NSSF are constantly attacked by anti-gun extremists as "terrorist" organizations.

Maybe I should have said how many "would be" children die every year compared to school shootings because they apparently are not really children.....just some giant lump of DNA residing in a host.

Probably makes it easier to kill them when you just think of it as a parasite right?

Why not discuss the topic at hand. Elected conservative representatives were so blinded by their desire to push the ''gun in every hand'' issue that they were duped into endorsing a cockamaney scheme dreamed up by a second rate comic just to expose how stupid they really are.

And then once they're born they're society's problem? Killing no longer a concern?

I love debates as well.

Should we arm fertilized eggs?

Simple...its a movie made by someone in disguise who has an agenda and the ability to show whatever they want when the tape gets cut and processed. It is also someone trying to make light of a subject many would say should never be taken lightly.

But hey....let's find some biased humor in the death of children.

Perfect...next left campaign slogan...a picture of a baby with the words "kill them all before they kill you".

I propose Waters and Pelosi push this hard.

But seriously....maybe, just maybe dont get pregnant? Call me crazy but that typically takes a minute. Same kinda thing I think of with criminals....do do something stupid, but if you do then be adult enough to accept the consequences.

Since the leak in the OP didn't work, I googled the story myself. It sounds more like they were presented with prepared remarks containing a false story about a kid in Israel defending himself with a gun and said they approved of it. What was he supposed to say? "Nah, that kid should've been killed."?

Should we arm fertilized eggs Vasa? Maybe that will prevent their mothers from aborting them right?

Debates are great.
