Two Sickening Stories

First up today: More about my new favorite moonbat! Ward Churchill is now under much-deserved fire from Governor Bill Owens of Colorado, who sent a letter to UC requesting Churchill’s resignation. A World Net Daily article quotes Gov. Owens thusly:

"Not only are [Churchill's] writings outrageous and insupportable, they are at odds with the facts of history. The thousands of innocent people – and innocent they were – who were murdered on September 11 were murdered by evil cowards. Indeed, if anyone could possibly be compared to the evildoers of Nazi Germany, it is the terrorists of the 21st century who have an equally repugnant disregard for innocent human life.

"No one wants to infringe on Mr. Churchill's right to express himself. But we are not compelled to accept his pro-terrorist views at state taxpayer subsidy nor under the banner of the University of Colorado."

Excellently stated, I’m in complete agreement. And on a side note, we have a new picture of this armchair revolutionary:

Rockynogin pointed out that his glasses in the previous photo I published weren’t particularly revolutionary-looking. Well, Che Churchill certainly seems to have solved that one here; if those shades don't scream “socialist uprising” I don't know what does. Even the beret is pure Guevara, and the AK-47 lets you know he’s serious, damnit.

I wonder how many pictures that poor, sycophantic grad student had to take before getting it just right (“No, no, look off into the distance as if you can see the Marxist revolution marching over the horizon. And remember to point the barrel away from you this time.”).

Next, from the Shoulda Hada Gun category: Twenty-eight year old actress Nicole duFresne stood up to the dull-witted thugs who tried to rob her last Thursday. That’s awesome, I applaud her courage and pit-bull attitude. Unfortunately the thugs had a gun – thugs tend not to care about restrictive liberal gun laws, you know – and one of them shot her dead. If Miss duFresne had been carrying, say, a snub-nosed .357 in her purse she wouldn’t have had to use harsh language and attitude to defend herself. She could have – should have – simply gunned down the bastards right there in the street (yes, even the 14 year-old, who cold-bloodedly stole the phone from Nicole’s purse as she lay bleeding to death on the ground).

Thanks largely to the anti-gun crowd, however, it was once again the criminals who were armed and the honest citizen who was defenseless. The result: A good and courageous life cut short, and a band of thugs that will either roam free to kill again or cost all of us $30,000 a year to keep in prison.

Would you care to explain to me again how that’s a fair trade, you simpering gun-control nutjobs?
