We don’t watch the HBO series “The Newsroom”. Aaron Sorkin is an enemy of freedom. Sorkin is a liberal subversive who is doing everything he can to destroy our Second Amendment civil rights. Looks like we made the right decsion to pass on this HBO series.
Chuck Ross at the Daily Caller reports that Will McAvoy, Aaron Sorkin’s newsman protagonist in his new HBO series “The Newsroom,”claims to be a hard-nosed, truth-telling Republican whose goal is to expose conservative myths.
Sorkin’s transparent contempt for the Tea Party and conservatives is why liberal writer Alex Pereene noted that Sorkin “is why people hate liberals.” This is no more apparent than in a recent episode which focuses on gun control.
The scene: Will McAvoy has taken on conservatives such as Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, and the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre on the subject of Barack Obama’s desire to enact gun control measures. McAvoy argues that conservatives make false claims about Obama’s stance on gun control in order to monger fear and boost political donations. He cites the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, named for President Reagan’s Press Secretary James Brady, as giving President Obama failing grades on gun control legislation. This disregards President Obama’s pre-Presidential stances on gun control as well as his infamous quip about Rust Belt voters “clinging to their guns”. It also doesn’t answer conservatives’ claims that given carte blanche, President Obama would severely limit Second Amendment rights.
Later in the episode McAvoy discovers a handgun in his date’s purse while rummaging around for “a joint.” Pulling the gun from her purse, McAvoy confronts the woman, who happens to work for Hillary Clinton. In the exchange she tells him that she’s a “southern liberal” and states her reasons for packing heat: “Well, if I’m walking the streets of Manhattan at night and a guy your size wants to rape me, then this is going to happen.” The woman points the gun – the chamber of which McAvoy had already emptied – at McAvoy.
McAvoy responds, “Actually, statistics show that this is going to happen.” Showing her what he means, McAvoy disarms his date with cat-like speed, bumping the butt of the gun from her hands, snatching it out of mid-air, and pointing it gangland-sideways at the woman. Complaints of Sorkin’s sexism (channeled through McAvoy) are beyond the scope of this piece.
It’s easy to see why The Newsroom and Sorkin have been criticized by both conservatives and liberals. Wake up America!
Make your attacker advance through a wall of bullets … You may get killed with your own gun, but he’ll have to beat you to death with it, because it’ll be empty.
