Who? Him? He’s Harmless.
TheHighRoad.org contributor Jim March applied to be on ComedyCentral’s upcoming program The Debate Show. Probably not a bright idea, but I appreciate his effort. His application is public, and available here. Well written.
He was accepted. He completed taping yesterday. He wasn’t the only gun rights supporter “used,” apparently:
This was a total SHAM!!! This is from the person that I know who went, I feel for him and Jim.
I thought the Debate Show (MTV Tv Production – I was interviewed and selected as a knowledgeable member of the gun community) would be an opportunity for me to support our side in protecting the Second Amendment. But, instead I was a set up for a comedy routine. I spent most of the day preparing. They stood me in the audience as if I were an audience member and asked me “what do you find interesting about shooting?”. I answered that it is a zenish experience, timing the release of the trigger with the aiming of the firearm, that its fun and isnt an olympic sport for nothing. One of the panelists was an a**wipe commedian and proceeded to show how i proved guns were just an extension of guys penis’s. He had a penis pump that he brought out and asked one of the panelists if he’d agree to give up his guns in exchange for the penis pump. He reduced our gun rights to a penis pump.
Basically i was the set up for HIS joke. I spent all f***king day prepping for this opportunity to debate about gun control and they reduced it to a joke. I walked off the set and demanded a car to take me home. that, or have the balls to put me back on. they didn’t – i left…
f**kers all. hollywood can suck my barrel!…. they consider themselves so liberal, so passionate, yet they are a bunch of money hungry, dishonest sh**s!
Pass along that the “Debate Show” is a bunch of liberal sh**ts setting up honest gun owners for their own comedic purposes. Dont be shy, they weren’t. They tried to humiliate a member of our community. F’her the little lying biatch.
(Emphasis mine, otherwise unedited.)
Here’s what Jim had to say:
I just finally got home by train, walked in the door 20 minutes ago.
I am absolutely furious. It was far worse than what 50 Shooter posted already.
I’m working on a full report right now. First I have to start googling the clowns that were on this turd.
Another thing: this was NEVER presented to me as destined for Comedy Central. This thread is literally the first time I’ve heard that. Which explains one HELL of a lot.
Oh MAN have they screwed with the wrong dude here.
The single biggest idiot was this…well, obviously professional actor, who supposedly had a psychology degree and was involved in “treating” people with “gun afflictions” by dealing with their underlying “sexuality issues”. Ya. I knew things had gone WAY south once I realized this bizarre gadget he’d just handed me was something I’d vaguely heard of but never seen. A penis pump. Swear to God.
Anyways. This same moron was also a “hunting advocate”. ‘Cept he didn’t like guns. So he advocated “manly hunting”. With rocks. Cut to video of three morons in camo wandering through the woods annoying various furred/feathered critters with thrown rocks.
Ok, so by the end of this bizarre crap as the closing credits are rolling, he pulls out a fairly big rock and holds it in a throwing position, growling and snarling at me, and making pathetic throwing motions.
I came *this* close to pulling a knife on his dumbass. Had my hand all the way in my pocket. Paused there, thought better of it.
Read the whole HighRoad thread.
I find it FASCINATING that gun-haters consider gun owners to be dangerous borderline homicidal maniacs, but have no fear that ridiculing and provoking a gun-rights supporter in this way will result in a “postal experience” with blood painting the walls. Their blood.
Even going so far as to (jokingly) threaten to attack one with a rock, after provoking him.
No, they are perfectly safe goading us, and they know it.
But I’d vote to acquit.
