Quote of the Day

[Content Note: Guns; slavery; genocide.]

"I don't know if you know the genesis of the right to bear arms. The Second Amendment comes from the right [for white men] to protect themselves from slave revolts, and from uprisings by Native Americans. So, a revolt from people who were stolen from their land or revolt from people whose land was stolen from—that's what the genesis of the Second Amendment is."—Actor Danny Glover, addressing Texas A&M students at an event being held in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Never have I heard such a perfect, succinct, devastating explanation of the heinous roots of the Second Amendment.

So, naturally, "a conservative student group is launching a petition against the school's 'leftist bias.'"

Of course they are.
