Time Columnist: Warning Others About Government Oppression Is “Anti-American Crap”
Klein supports democide but says you are “paranoid” if you question government
April 9, 2013
In an appearance on MSNBC’s Chris Matthews show this past weekend, Time columnist Joe Klein declared that anyone who fears that their government may become oppressive is “anti-American”.
In an exchange centered around the Obama administration’s push for gun control, Klein took aim at gun owners, asking “…What do they need all those bullets for? I guess they just don’t feel very strong.”
Klein then stated that the US has become a “lot more wimpy” as a nation because “these gun advocates at the NRA want these semi-automatic weapons.”
When Matthews asked Klein to speak about a “cowboy culture”, Klein continued his verbal assault.
“Well, I think that that’s at the root of it, but there’s something else that’s going on now that is really, really dangerous, and it’s this festering sense that we need to have these semi-automatic weapons because the government in Washington is about to oppress us.” he said.
“And that is paranoia that these groups like the NRA, the Gun Owners of America — they feed this crap, and it really is anti-American.” Klein continued.
