Her Majesty Addresseth The Rancid Peasantry In The Royal Quotidian Mode

Hinderaker over at PowerLine seems to confuse Her Majesty’s non-command of reasonable, accurate speech with lying.

Let’s take [Her Royal declamation in Alexandria] apart:

The NRA basically represents manufactures and the sellers.

No, the NRA represents firearm owners and others who want to preserve our constitutional rights. And, by the way, the NRA’s approval rating is 50% higher than Hillary’s.

One of the most outrageous votes that I ever had to take when I was in the Senate was an NRA bill to give immunity to gun manufacturers and sellers for just about everything.

She is talking about the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act. It doesn’t give immunity to gun manufacturers for “just about everything,” but rather, subject to various exceptions, for “the criminal or unlawful misuse of a [firearm].” So if a criminal shoots you with a Ruger pistol, you can’t sue Ruger.

It was unique. No other industry in America has anything like it.

Liberals haven’t threatened to bankrupt any other industry by bringing frivolous lawsuits. If someone hits you with a baseball bat, you can’t sue Louisville Slugger. If you try, you will be laughed out of court. The law with respect to guns is the same as with regard to other products: if a gun is defective and you are injured as a result, you can sue.

Read in full. And understand that next year, we’re past all discussion of whether “this is the most important election of your lifetime”. If Her Majesty achieves the Full Coronation, it’s not clear whether there will be another election.

Update: She lied to the nation in 2012, and she’s lying again now. You don’t look surprised.
It’s interesting, as an academic matter, to ask the question: “Just how absolutely false can a human being be?” I just wish that, in the case of Her Majesty, there were not so much at stake.

    I’ll believe the politicos really have our best interests at heart when all Federal Special Agents are disarmed first…

    I am not certain there will be another presidential election now.

    If I may say, that is the awesomest blog article title ever.

    Also, if Her Majesty achieves the Full Coronation, I’m afraid I’m going to have to emigrate to Russia, where I’ll be safer; and, evidently, on the winning side.

    The bottom line of her stance on this issue is the bottom line to every speech any Democrat gives these days: Death To Freedom!

    O/T but maybe not. I watched about 10 minutes of the Benghazi hearings before the gag reflex kicked in. Hillary was clearly doped up for the testimony. She probably was taking Zoloft or a similar SSRI anti-depressant. She had a glazed look and it would explain the inappropriate laughter. This thing is seriously off the rails.

    Try suing the goddamned pharmaceutical companies sometime. Secret vaccine court. Secret results. Damages paid by the taxpayers, NOT the pharmaceutical corps.

    I think she’s like Professor Gill: the guy on the old Star Trek episode with the planet of Nazis who was drugged into a stupor so he could rule as a figurehead.

    “Her Majesty promises to turn the entire country into a Safe Space, where everyone is treated like an Ambassador.”

    Which ambassador? Ambassador Stevens?

    Well, yes, but the gag hinges on leaving the point ambiguous.

    A truly appalling woman. Unfit for ANY role where she has control over the lives of others. Paranoid, sociopathic liar and would-be dictator (qua “President for Life”) in the Venezuelan mode.

    So, she thinks gun control is a winning issue.

    If she keeps on like this, put a fork in her.

    No amount of money could convince me to fork her.

    You’d be on the winning side until Ezekial chapters 38 & 39 anyway.

    Maybe. I’m not 100% convinced that Russia is Magog. But I am convinced that this country is either Babylon, or a daughter of Babylon, so is in for dome real trouble. Not sure there’s anywhere to escape to, actually.

    Hillary lied? You don’t say.

    She must be REALLY confident to play with that third rail. There’s a reason the Dems dropped gun control over the last couple election cycles.

    funny how targeting the NRA is the party line – Alinsky style.
    Just makes me want to send more money.

    We have no way of being certain Russia is Magog. While I seriously doubt the US is Babylon, it’s certainly a part of that system.

    Nope, there’s no where to run.

    While the NRA’s stances have not been the best over the years (they’ve caught hell for trying to buddy up to politicos, rather than holding their feet to the coals), they DO serve an excellent purpose.

    In video game terminology, the ‘tank’ is a role relegated to a player who can draw enemy attention down on himself and absorb the hits without serious effect. The more abuse the tank draws to himself, the less gets spread out among other, less durable members of the party.

    The NRA is our tank. While the gungrabbers flail away at it, we continue to chip away at their gains.

    We have a lot of chipping away to do…going all the way back to at least 1934.

    The NRA basically represents manufactures and the sellers.

    By the way, it’s “manufacturers,” not “manufactures.”
