Savage: This Time Obama is Really Going to Take Our Guns

Michael Savage has made repeated claims about how the Obama administration was going to use this or that pretext to seize all the guns in the country. None of those predictions have ever come true, of course, but he’s a plucky one who doesn’t give up that easily. He has a whole new prediction:

Every year, we hear from right-wing outlets some new way that President​ Obama is going to secretly ban guns. Such gun bans, of course, never materialize, prompting the pundit to just move on to the next conspiracy theory.

Take Michael Savage, for example. Last year, the right-wing radio talk show host claimed that Obama would “use Ebola as a pretext” to “take the guns.” Since that never happened, Savage now has a new theory for his fans: Obama will sneak a gun ban into the Trans Pacific Partnership, a controversial free trade deal, without the public ever knowing about it.

“This is a dictatorship as sure as I’m sitting here,” Savage told his listeners on Friday. “Obama’s the most dictatorial president in American history, he was never fit for office, he was voted out of office in November.”

He was voted out of office? How did the rest of us not notice that? Must be that alternate reality on Planet Wingnuttia. And how many times does someone get to predict the same thing and not have it come true before everyone just realizes that they’re completely full of shit? When Obama leaves office in two years without ever having seized the guns, we all get to point and laugh.

    Come on, you know he’s only going to leave office to get you to let your guard down and THEN he’s going to take your guns!

    …how many times does someone get to predict the same thing and not have it come true before everyone just realizes that they’re completely full of shit?

    That’s not a problem for him. He’s in a win/win situation. If guns are banned he can strut around as the big “I told you so” winner. If the guns are not banned his fans will thank him for all the hard work that eventually forced Obama to back down.

    This is a dictatorship as sure as I’m sitting here

    Which is appropriate … considering where your “information” is coming from …

    All the actual issues with the Trans Pacific Partnership and he has to make something up.

    Obama’s the most dictatorial president in American history, he was never fit for office, he was voted out of office in November“.

    Presumably November 2012, that is? Anyone got any idea where this meme originated? [Or rather, precisely whose rectum it was squeezed out from?]

    My recollection is the “voted out of office” meme started after the Nov 2014 mid-term elections when some of the thugs (re-)elected to Congress claimed Mr Obama had (paraphrasing) “lost the election” or “lost his mandate” — both obvious hyperbole — which evolved into the “voted out of office” absurdity.

    Their base, Dingo. That’s all that’s necessary.

    Have gun sales have flattened a bit? Ammunition prices tapered off? Time for more panic-stricken hoarding!

    blf,

    So, when Dubya called 2006, when Democrats cleaned house — as well as House and Senate — a “thumpin,'” he actually meant he had been voted out of office?

    Good thing Cheney was there to take over and keep Bush on as vice president.

    As far as a Dick Tater Ship is concerned, my personal impression of a dictator implies someone who can have people who defy him or piss him off or whom he just doesn’t like the looks of taken outside and shot in the head, no questions asked.

    Not a leader who can be accused of being lazy for filling out a March Madness bracket. Or can have a mere member of the lower legislative house shout “You lie” at him during a nationally broadcast speech and the legislator lives to see the next sunrise.

    It’s Obama’s jobs program. What is it… something like 80% of American households have firearms. Think how many people the government will have to hire to go collect all those guns. And it won’t be quick and easy either. Searching every nook and cranny of every house is going to take some time. We’ll probably have to bring in foreign workers to complete the job in a timely manner. Come to think of it, that’s probably why he’s bringing in those 2,000 Syrians. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

    Oh, I think we’re entitled to point and laugh now — if we’re so inclined.

    35%, trending downward for decades. Although many of them now have lots of guns because Obama is going to come and take them away.

    You can point, and you can laugh, but you’ll never be able to point your gun and laugh. This never would have happened if the president (not the one voted out in November!) had fast-track negotiating authority.

    That’s for pikers, as dictators go. Reports are that Kim Jong-un had his Defense Secretary taken and a shot using an anti-aircraft gun. Now *that’s* an execution. Probably possible to send the remains to the next of kin is a sandwich bag.
