In the wake of the horrible tragedy in Orlando, satellite radio shock jock Howard Stern is not a happy camper. Not only is he angry about the carnage that took place at the Pulse nightclub, he is absolutely incensed at the reaction to the event by liberals. Stern just cannot comprehend how any reasonable response to what has just taken place would include more gun control. He likened the situation to the idea that wolves (Muslim terrorists) are coming to hurt the sheep, and instead of arming the sheep (the citizens) for battle, the government is doing the exact opposite and making it impossible for the sheep to defend themselves.
And you know what? I don’t say this often but… Howard Stern is 100% right about what is going on.
(Be forewarned – Howard Stern’s language is filled with colorful expletives. This is definitely not safe for all ears.)
“I’m so upset about Orlando and what went down, but I can’t believe these people who come out afterwards and their answer to Orlando is to take away guns from the public. It’s f***ing mind-blowing to me.
“The military — and they don’t mean it in a derogatory way — but they look at the public as sheep. And we are sheep. Most of us sit around all day and we don’t know how to defend ourselves. We basically think everything’s OK.
“Except the wolves — the bad guys, ISIS, or terrorists, homegrown or otherwise — their wolves. The military and police look at themselves as sheepdogs. They’re warriors, but on the good side.
“The terrorist all have AR-15s, they have glocks, they have every kind of pistol.
“Now what if I went up to the sheep and I said, ‘You wanna have a shot at the wolves? I’m going to give you a pistol. You can actually even the playing field with these wolves whose fangs are out — you can shoot them.’ There’s not a sheepdog for every citizen.
“The most gun-free zone on the planet is a plane. On 9/11, what did the wolves do?
They said, ‘This is great. We’ll just kill the sheep with boxcutters.’ So they went on the plane with boxcutters and all the sheep went, ‘Baaaa.’
“The wolves are always planning. They’ll use boxcutters. They’ll use an airplane fly it right into a building. They don’t need AR-15s.
“I don’t like violence — I don’t like any of this stuff — but I consider myself a sheep. Most of your politicians have private security, so they’re OK. Those are sheep that are very well protected. You, on the other hand, are a sitting duck.
“I’m not for taking away people’s rights.”
You tell ‘em, Howard.
