One could argue that Geraldo Rivera became unmoored from reality right about the time he tried to open Al Capone’s vault and has never really bothered to return. However, as the years have gone on, it’s become clear that he’s become even more ridiculous.
Geraldo proved that again in the wake of the Roseburg, Oregon, shooting, writing a Facebook post in which he called the Second Amendment “bullshit” and then somehow advocated for more armed guards.
“The mass murder at Umpqua again reveals we are a gun sick nation. All the 2d Amendment bullshit aside, the gun lobby controls the country, and allows armed maniacal lunatics to roam free and kill,” Rivera said.
In the very next paragraph, though, Geraldo managed to completely contradict himself.
“That said, isn’t it malpractice per se for any educational institution not to have at least one armed guard on campus trained and ready to fight gunfire with gunfire?” Geraldo wrote.
“Cops are great, but unless someone is right there, armed and ready, locked and loaded, innocents will continue to be slaughtered by gun-empowered, penis-envying, disgruntled, self & life-hating, sicko creeps who got someone devoid of conscience to sell or give them a deadly weapon with which to take the lives of people much better than they.”
So let me get this straight: Rivera is angry that America has too many guns, according to him. However, he concedes that there weren’t enough guns on the campus of Umpqua Community College.
If cognitive dissonance could provide electrical power, we would never have to worry about energy again thanks to Geraldo.
It’s painfully obvious that Rivera has no respect for the Constitution. While he understands that guns can keep us safe, he still wants to take them out of the hands of law-abiding people.
It’s time Fox News fired this pathetic embarrassment once and for all.
