There may be a fluke in the system as liberal news media just endorsed the 2nd Amendment, even if it was unintentional.
Progressive MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell was decrying the ruthless actions taken by the government in Venezuela with correspondent Kerry Sanders when they started to inadvertently make a case for gun rights.
“This is taking longer than they thought,” Mitchell remarked of the recent efforts to remove Venezuelan dictator Maduro, “despite the sanctions, despite the pressure, with the help of Russia and other outside forces, Maduro is hanging on.”
“Not only hanging on,” agreed Sanders, “but he appears to still control the military. You have to understand that in Venezuela, gun ownership is not something that is open to everybody, so if the military have the guns, they have the power. And as long as Nicolas Maduro controls the military, he controls the country.”
Sanders didn’t seem to realize that she was essentially making saying that people should have a right to arms in case the government decides to oppress the people.
This comes after footage went viral of Maduro’s forces using military vehicles to run down peaceful protestors in the streets.
