Liberal Hypocrisy … NBC’s David Gregory Mocks NRA’s LaPierre for Proposing Armed Guards in Schools, Yet He Sends His Kids to High Security School (Update: Obama’s Daughters Have 11 Armed Guards at Their School)
Once again we are presented with liberal hypocrisy and the double standard. What is good for them, is not the same that “We the People” are allowed.
As reported that The Weekly Standard, me thinks David Gregory dost protest too much. Actually, me thinks David Gregory is two-faced.
Following the tragic mass murders at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT that saw 26 murdered, including 20 children and six adults, NBC’s Davis Gregory went on an anti-Second Amendment gun rant mocking the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre for his proposing that armed guards be put in schools for the children’s protection. As LaPierre has stated, “the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun.” Gregory, the ‘Meet the Press’ host went on to rail that armed guards might not be effective in preventing mass murders at school.
David Gregory mocked the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre for proposing that armed guards be at every school in America. But the NBC host seems to have no problem with armed guards protecting his kids everyday where they attend school in Washington, D.C.
“You proposed armed guards in school. We’ll talk about that in some detail in a moment. You confronted the news media. You blamed Hollywood and the gaming industry. But never once did you concede that guns could actually be part of the problem. Is that a meaningful contribution, Mr. LaPierre, or a dodge?,” asked Gregory.
Later the host suggested that guns don’t prevent violence in schools (he cited the mass shootings at Columbine and Virginia Tech). “But you would concede that, as good as an idea as you think this is, it may not work. Because there have been cases where armed guards have not prevented this kind of massacre, this kind of carnage. I want you would concede that point, wouldn’t you?,” Gregory pleaded.
The NBC host would go on the rest of the segment to suggest that armed guards might not be effective in preventing mass murders at school.
But wait, when it comes to his own children it is a different story. As it turns out, Gregory not only send his children to a school with armed security guards, he also benefits from the fact that Barack Obama’s children attend the same school and thus Secret Service is present as well. That is correct, the school that Gregory and Obama send their children to has 11 armed security guards for their protection, but some how putting armed guards, police, etc. in other schools s labeled crazy by the Left and the liberal, corrupt media complex.
The Gregory children go to school with the children of President Barack Obama, according to the Washington Post. That school is the co-ed Quaker school Sidwell Friends.
According to a scan of the school’s online faculty-staff directory, Sidwell has a security department made up of at least 11 people. Many of those are police officers, who are presumably armed.
Moreover, with the Obama kids in attendance, there is a secret service presence at the institution, as well.
So why is it perfectly OK for it to have armed security and police in schools of the privileged like David Gregory and Barack Obama, but not that to protect the children of “We the People”? Hmm?
