RUSH: Let’s go back to the Grooveyard of Forgotten Sound Bites and the Grooveyard of Forgotten Hosts. Let’s see, this is… Ah! I’m sorry. It’s not from the Grooveyard. It’s from yesterday. Yesterday on the TMZ website, an identified reporter ran into Larry King to get his reaction to Supreme Court justice John Paul Stevens’ op-ed calling for repeal of the Second Amendment. So the TMZ reporter said, “Retired Supreme Court justice John Paul Stevens advocating repealing the Second Amendment. What do you think,” Larry King?
KING: I favor changing the Second Amendment. Repeal it! It’s poorly written.
KING: You know who started the Second Amendment was southern senators so they could ward off slaves’ uprisings.
REPORTER: Is that true?
KING: Read the history! Southern senators started it so they could repel slave uprisings — and the NRA is the worst.
RUSH: (laughing) I wonder how many people who watched Larry King all of those years thought Larry King was not even political, that he was just a down-the-middle interviewer and all he did was ask great questions of people? Maybe he had a crush on Frank Sinatra, but aside from that, he was just a standard, ordinary guy. I wonder how many people had no idea that Larry King was just like all the rest of ’em: A left-wing radical activist who became more radical as he grew older?
I don’t know if you were able to understand that, but Larry King said that the purpose of the Second Amendment… “Southern senators insisted on the Second Amendment so they could ward off slaves’ uprisings.” Even the TMZ reporter said, “Really?” King said, “Yeah. Read the history. Southern senators started it so they could repel slave uprising. The NRA is…” What’s the NRA got to do with slavery? “The NRA is the worst”? The worst what? They’re coming out of the woodwork, folks! They are…
As I so adroitly and adeptly pointed out yesterday, they are taking the masks off. They’re exposing themselves. They are revealing who had really are. Snerdley, you were out of the room; you didn’t hear. You hear what Larry King said to TMZ? Larry King said the Second Amendment, John Paul Stevens was right. We gotta get rid of it. It was written and demanded by Southern senators to ward off slave uprisings. The TMZ reporter said, “Really? Is that true?” And King said, “Yeah, look it up. Read the history! Southern senators started it so they could repel slaves’ uprisings.”
Well, those Southern senators were Democrats, Larry, old buddy, and they remained Democrats all the way through the ’64 Civil Rights Act, Larry, old buddy, old pal. But this is a new one. Have you ever heard this one? (interruption) Yeah. And where have you heard it? Where have you heard this idiocy? Yeah, of course from leftists. Revolutionary War? It was the Civil War, for crying out loud. But that doesn’t matter. The Civil War never happened. It was made up by right-wing media.
