  •  Hilarious, and a bit on the whiny side. (0+ / 0-)

    I think a little education about the American 20th century might have some education for you on how difficult it sometimes was to express a right to peaceably assemble.  

    But surely you already knew that.

    •  Most frequently, those "difficulties"... (4+ / 0-)

      were the result of armed men under the orders of bigotted thugs.  Often, when opposed by good people with guns, their resolution flowed away like water.

      See, I've read some history.

      I'm not sure where you see the "whiny", but eye of the beholder and all...

      •  That's a funny way to admit you were dead wrong. (0+ / 0-)

        Sudden agreement with my premise... you know, the one that completely invalidates your argument.. with a vague, unspecific, and unsupported assertion?

        But I accept your surrender on the first point.  It is certainly true that the right to peaceably assemble has historically been in much greater danger of suppression than the right to bear arms.

        Thanks!

        •  Not even close to what was actually said... (3+ / 0-)

          ...but a nice try to change the story on your part, nonetheless.

          •  Actually, I've been the only constant. (0+ / 0-)

            The commenter claimed that the right to bear arms has seen more persecution than the right to peaceably assemble.  This is laughable, thoroughly false, and for a follower of the Civil Rights movement, approaches the level of a Holocaust denier.

            The fact that so few of this group scolded him, as any decent Kossack should.. is truly sad.

              The fact that his comment was completely accurate and factual is... um... what was it you were saying again?

              I guess you've been consistent in that you have not yet responded to what was actually said, instead of what you want to have been said.

              That you've been consistent about, yes.

              •  So you think supporters of the right to bear arms (0+ / 0-)

                ..have seen more persecution than those seeking to peaceably assemble, too?

                I had no idea there was more than one of you.

                Ok.. find any resource.  Any.  Wikipedia will do.  Look up Civil Rights.  Be sure to watch all the videos, especially the ones with water cannons and German Shepherds.

                Then we'll talk anti-war protesters.  

                We'll have plenty of time for many other examples after that.

        •  What is this... (3+ / 0-)

          friggen' mirror-world day?

          Your density is beyond my merely mortal powers.  Apparently neutronium does exist, and it's here on planet Earth to suck out our damn brains.

          •  Let me try to help you understand.. (0+ / 0-)

            ..you first claimed the right to bear arms had been heavily persecuted.  When I pointed out that it doesn't even make the scale when compared to what happened to people supporting other Constitutionally-guaranteed rights.. you belittled the struggles some have had peaceably assembling.

            When I accurately contradicted your inexcusable behavior, you then acknowledged the struggles of those defending the Bill of Rights, but tossed in a gun reference to link it back to what might have been your argument, in a mirror world.

            A thoughtful individual would immediately be able to tell that you gave up defending your previous position, accepted the terms of my argument, and therefore ended the discussion.

            Since you continued on, with insults, and no arguments.. flailing around wildly like a fish caught in a net beyond its understanding.. there may indeed be a brain density issue, but it is abundantly clear whose skull needs thinning.
