Dan Rather: America's Refusal to Repeal the 2nd Amendment Proves That the Nation is Unpatriotic and Without Honor

The super-patriotic Forgery Vendor Dan Rather has some thoughts.

Following the [Virginia Beach] shootings Friday, Rather on "CNN Tonight" called the inaction "despicable" and charged "it speaks to our lack of honor and patriotism."

That's Don Lemon's show. Good to see that some people don't mind being associated with a show the New York Times deems "too partisan" for people posing as being real journalists.

Rather said on Friday's "CNN Tonight" show with Don Lemon: "This story is not new. This story happens all too often, and the fact that we havenít done anything really to come to grips with it is -- despicable is the only word that comes to mind. And it speaks to our lack of honor and patriotism, in this sense: This is a national health epidemic. And can you imagine, Don, what it would be, of instead of guns, we had an outbreak of an Ebola epidemic? We the public, we the people, and our political representatives would be behaving in a completely different manner."

Actually, I remember exactly what the Obama Administration did during the ebola outbreak: It lied about whether the disease was contagious and could be passed by a sneeze (yes and yes -- though the head of the CDC lied to the public and misrepresented a sneeze as "airborne" transmission, instead of direct contact transmission, and then playing the public's misunderstanding of what 'airborne" transmission means to lie that ebola could not be so transmitted) and then refused to take the most basic actions to prevent the outbreak from going live in the US, such as restricting travel from the areas in the grip of the epidemic.

Remember how many of us urged a transportation quarantine, and Obama kept insisting we didn't have to do anything like that?

So it seems that when liberal pieties are in danger of being subject to restriction, the left starts lying and claiming no additional safeguards are needed.
