Sanders, NBC and Yahoo! Perpetuate Inexcusable Lie on ‘Assault Weapons’

ScreenHunter_11 Jun. 13 20.33
Scaring people into thinking semiautomatic weapons are the same thing as automatic weapons is an old lie the antis find useful to dust off every so often for a new crop of gullible marks.

“I believe that in this country, we should not be selling automatic weapons which are designed to kill people,” Bernie Sanders told NBC News in a quote perpetuated by Yahoo! News.

There have been no reports that the killer used a machine gun. New reports say an accomplice is being sought and some of the nightclub victims may have even been shot by police. What’s happening here is  Sanders and his media parrots are continuing to exploit public ignorance about guns, something glowingly endorsed by Josh Sugarmann of the Violence Policy Center as far back as 1988:

“The weapons’ menacing looks, coupled with the public’s confusion over fully automatic machine guns versus semi-automatic assault weapons—anything that looks like a machine gun is assumed to be a machine gun—can only increase the chance of public support for restrictions on these weapons.”

So between a national socialist who has been voting on gun legislation at the federal level since the Eighties and two major “news” organizations, what can the excuse possibly be except that they are all either so incompetent they don’t even know what they’re agitating for — or they’re liars?

After seeing the premeditated deception NBC “News” pulled with an  “exploding” GM truck, and the way Yahoo “News” is sticking by Katie Couric’s  deceptive and evidently criminal brand of “journalistic ethics,” I’m leaning toward option B with a heavy dose of Option A.

As for Sanders, the old pinko was elected to the House in 1991 and the Senate in 2007. He’s been party to plenty of gun owner control bills.  Does he really expect us to believe he had no idea what it was he’s been voting on, and what it is he wants to ban? Really?  And he wants to be president?

A president who was co-founder of the so-called “Progressive Caucus” along with, among others, another “key player … the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), which has maintained a close alliance with the Caucus ever since”…?

DSA is the domestic arm of Socialist International — Stalin, you’ll recall, led the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, whereas Hitler headed up the National Socialists. A lie of the left is that Nazis weren’t really what their name claimed, but anyone who has looked beyond the sound bites knows that’s just another deception, and the bitter enmity between totalitarians was essentially one of rival gangs. Basically, these are the folks who want to supplant freedom with a plague that has produced tyranny, misery and genocide since it first broke out to torment humanity.

DSA devoted a page on their website to hymns glorifying their “struggle” (i.e., what Hitler called “Mein Kampf” ). The following in particular should be of special interest, since the people they’re talking about, the “bourgeoisie,” are those of us who aren’t “the propertyless proletariat”! And they really explain (better than anything I could say) why the socialists need to take away our guns:

Are You Sleeping, Bourgeoisie (Traditional American song, sung in rounds to the tune of “Frere Jacques”).

Are you sleeping, Are you sleeping
Bourgeoisie, Bourgeoisie
And when the revolution comes
We’ll kill you all with knives and guns
Bourgeoisie, Bourgeoisie


Bourgeoisie, Bourgeoisie, See How They Run (Usually sung in rounds after “Are You Sleeping, Bourgeoisie”- Sung to the tune of “Three Blind Mice”.)

Bourgeoisie, Bourgeoisie,
See how they run
See how they run
And when the revolution comes,
We’ll kill them all with knives and guns
Bourgeoisie, Bourgeoisie

The problem is, you can’t find those on the DSA website any more — they took them down. They don’t want you to see them any more. Back in 2008 I posted a piece written years earlier (Joseph Farah of World Net Daily wrote about the songs in 1998) and I noted they had been removed by DSA, and further, that the “disappearing” of inconvenient information for purposes of historical revisionism was a trick for mass manipulation right out of the “progressive” playbook.

Fortunately, we have the Internet Archive “Wayback Machine,” that preserves a record of the songs on the DSA site, presumably reflecting the approval of party members like Bernie, who demand we be disarmed while calling us the extremists and the haters. For all their talk about egalitarian power sharing, they sure are stingy with the firepower. And they sure are bloodthirsty whenever they achieve a monopoly of violence.

We’re being played right now in a blood-dancing, eye-rolling feeding frenzy of political and media sharks,hungry for rights they have no claim to.  We’re seeing all kinds of calls for enacting the “terror watchlist,” and for banning what Sanders and his willing Fourth Estate Fifth Columnists are trying to lull the ignorant into thinking semi-autos are machine guns. There’s even a hive insect out there, Bob Casey of Pennsylvania, claiming it’s “common sense” to ignore due process and ban gun purchases from “anyone convicted of a misdemeanor hate crime or who received a hate crime sentence enhancement, and prohibit the sale of firearms to anyone reasonably suspected to be guilty of a misdemeanor hate crime [emphasis added].” (Presumably, any existing firearms would then need to be confiscated, or what’s the point?)

Plenty of other sources will be telling you about all the renewed demands for infringements from Obama, from Hillary, from Chuck Schumer and others in the coming days.  For now, understand the character of those who want your guns so badly they’ll drag out old lies to swindle those who haven’t heard them before.  And understand what they sing about doing to you.

Are you sleeping?

Why not share the songs with your fellow gun owners and any misguided/deluded Bernie supporters you might know. Ask them if they are.

We used to use the term “autoloader” or “autoloading rifle” back in the day before it became popular to call them semi-automatics. I don’t know why, but the old terminology used to carry a lot less emotional baggage.


Don’t Federally licensed gun dealers have the discretion not sell a gun to a guy with a name like Sadique Gabardine Sute?


The Brown Shirts of today don’t know who they are up against this time.



louise barron

Folks. Get your licenses and guns now. If Clinton gets in, she will change everything we hold dear. She is an Obama in drag. Well, not that much drag. We are doomed with her.


barron,make sure everyone has plenty of ammo too ! Trump will slaughter the bull dyke in Nov. The only place Clinton might get into is the federal lockup !

Gregory Romeu

The very second anybody makes a move to take away the Second Amendment is the exact same second that the 2nd Amendment will start being utilized!

Mike McAllister

God help us even Ammoland can’t get the term’s right. THERE ARE NO SEMI-AUTOMATIC ASSAULT WEAPONS!!!!!! Assault weapons by definition are select fire and the AR-15 is NOT select fire. Semi-automatic is semi-automatic. The liberals think because it looks like a M16 it must be and if we the pro-guns give them the assault weapon line they will never get it!!! Please stop calling semi-auto gun’s assault weapons.

[Admin note] – the words “SEMI-AUTOMATIC ASSAULT WEAPONS” is attributed to Josh Sugarmann of the Violence Policy Center not Ammoland, don’t get your panties in a bunch fella.

Gregory Romeu

Mike McAllister, you are yet another one spouting off wrong information! Yes Mike we DO USE semi-automatic rifles as assault weapons!

You should get off the computer and join the military and get your facts straight!

Mike McAllister

Well Gregory Romeu, you can use the term, but you are WRONG. You may commit an assault with an AR-15 but that doesn’t make it an assault weapon. By your definition a knife is an assault weapon, a baseball bat is an assault weapon. Stop puking out the liberal terms and learn what they mean!!!!

Mike McAllister

Gregory Romeu, again you can use it to commit an assault, but that DOES NOT make it an assault weapon. Unless your going to say a Ford pickup is an assault truck because someone runs over someone else with it! If you want to go on using incorrect terms that just shows your stupid idea and DOES NOT make it a fact!!!

Gregory Romeu

Want to spend some time in the Marine Corps?Perhaps then you too can learn the real terminologies of real weapons without worrying what the hell the libbys call anything.

I was also an 0351 anti-tank assault Gunner and my primary weapon was the LAAWS rocket. That was a single-shot weapon also!

Many veterans find it amusing the way civilians determine things in life.

Saul Alunski

Tactical weapons are great for shooting people! And, that is exactly why I own one, and everyone else should too. They is exactly why THEY don’t want you to have one!

Curly Howard

They tell many lies. Full auto weapons are used in these incidents. The AR-15 and other firearms used in these incidents are full auto weapons. The right to self defense resulted as an amendment to the constitution, therefore it was granted by the government. The second is about household or personal self defense. The second is about hunting. Government is responsible for creating safe zones for specific segments of our population. Gun free zones can/do reduce gun deaths. The definitions and availability of assault weapons. “Common Sense” guns laws and “Gun Safety” regulation. Me? I think we have a right… Read more »

Gregory Romeu

Curly Howard, I strongly pity your ignorance of weapons. NO, the AR-15 is NOT full auto. It is SEMI AUTO, squeeze the trigger one time, ONE round is fired.

The M16 and the M4 are FULL auto or configured to provide a three-shot-burst. And it IS LEGAL to purchase and own all of them.

Get your facts straight!


I think he was listing the lies being told not the facts as he believes them.

Gregory Romeu

The AR-15 is not a full auto rifle, it is a semi-automatic rifle that is patterned after the M16 or M4 full automatic versions.

Spouting off this type of WRONG INFORMATION and rhetoric that you know absolutlex NOTHING about is just as dangerous as giving a loaded weapon to an insane person!


Gregory….you really need to take a little more time reading posts before you comment….apparently you are not to adept at recognizing sarcasm. Read the posts slooooowly…..maybe you’ll catch on. BTW…you can only buy a fully automatic firearm with a whole shit load of ATF paperwork, a shit load of additional background checks, and a shit load of additional moolah (up and above the actual cost of the firearm). Even then, it’s up to the ATF to say yes or no. Let me know if you need me to type slooooower… know….just in case you didn’t understand what I just wrote.


The reason all those people are dead is political correctness. He was a muslim so it was hands off. Reasons he should have been investigated were ignored because he was a muslim. 1. He was a muslim 2. Admired the 911 scum and said so publicly many times. 3. Made threats which appear to have sloppily investigated or ignored. 4. Traveled to the mideast twice. 5. Father had connections to the Taliban. 6. A close friend was a suicide bomber. 7. Wife beater. #7 alone should have prevented him from buying a firearm under current law, but the real killer… Read more »


One other thing. These people were trained to be victims. How many times have you heard “Don’t fight back. Do what hey tell you. You are safer if you don’t resist.” That is a crock, if a few people would have rushed him (flight 77 ring a bell) it would have been over with much less loss of life. Be armed, be vigilant, and most of all don’t be afraid to fight for your life!

Gregory Romeu

With the exception of taking firearms into a BAR!


It is legal to carry a firearm into a bar here. The exception being that you cannot have an alcoholic beverage.

Gregory Romeu

You better check your legislation again there Skippy!

Wild Bill

Where is here, AJ?

Gregory Romeu

AJ is referring to, “here”as Florida. No, you cannot carry a weapon into a BAR regardless if you’re drinking or not it is illegal!

The law is slightly ambiguous in the event you walk into a restaurant that makes the MAJORITY OF IT’S BUSINESS SELLING FOOD and also serves alcohol

Then again the properly trained and legally responsible citizen will exercise a bit of Common Sense and not play games in these types of situations.

I own an executive protection agency and even I cannot carry a firearm into a bar unless I am contracted with the bar.


#8 not all Muslims are terrorists,but all terrorists are radical Islamics (Muslims) !


I wish there was some way to vet these angry lose cannons ready to explode but unfortunately so many people fit the profile of these mass murderers right up to the point before they actually do anything like the Orlando incident. You can’t deny somebody a gun because they appear angry or they they are a homophobe or they are socially retarded and live in their mother’s basement. I think Bernie is a wack job for many reasons but picking apart semi-auto verses automatic seems like a petty arguement in light of what just happened.

Wild Bill

Mike, there is no such thing as a homophobe. That is a made up term, designed for the left to control the debate. And it is pathetically poor latin. The word is pervert from pervertere ( per “ill effect” + vertere “to turn”). The semi-auto vs. auto is hardly a petty lie. Please, Mikef, save the ignorant drivel. This audience is too knowledgeable for that superficial propaganda.

Gregory Romeu

You don’t know jack about the ATF Dealer regs. I suggest you do a review.


If you want any of the “free stuff” left after the clintons, schumers, et. all have plucked theirs from your increased taxes, vote for a democrat. If you want to be reliant on the government, a.k.a., welfare, vote for democrats. Democrats will protect you (wink, wink) by helping you spend your money on what they want, will promise you most anything and provide little to nothing except more misery. Don’t believe me, ask/look at the plight of blacks who are doing worse than ever even though they generally vote for democrats. Look at all the democrat successes in democrat-controlled places… Read more »

Gregory Romeu

Yeah! Every now and then the Democrats will sponsor a riot, uh, er, I mean PROTEST so you can go looting, uh, er, I mean SHOPPING to tide you over during the recessions, ah? I mean THE LEAN TIMES!

Andy G

First the shooter did not use a ar15 rifle
And they should be referred to as a semi auto
Rifle not a assault rifle ,time to make that
Clear in all stories.they are not assault rifles
Or machine guns

Gregory Romeu

Andy, the AR-15, Stoner platform rifle IS IN FACT an Assault Rifle. You can kick and scream all you want, but you’ll be wasting good oxygen.


AR stands for Armalite Rifle not the liberal created evil sounding term assault rifle.

Wild Bill

Yep, Armalite Rifle. I thought that Adolf Hitler came up with the term assault rifle, but that little historical trivia aside, we are playing into the Anti-Second Amendment Civil Rights liberals’ hands when we use that term. They are already talking about assault weapons and assault pistols. The gun grabbers are controlling the debate. No wonder we are having such a difficult time. I think that it is time for us to control the debate by controlling the terminology. Everytime that they open their lying mouths and the words automatic, high capacity, or assault rifle comes spilling out, we should… Read more »


We need to slam them also for their use of assault news print, assault cameras, assault reporters, assault politicians, assault laws, and everything else that they try to assault our freedoms with. We could also talk of Hillary’s assault lies, Obama’s assault life, Bernie’s assault socialism, and the list goes on. I guess that if a thing or belief is used to attack anyone with, it might be labeled as assault except for one thing. It isn’t the item that assaults, it is the user.

Mike McAllister

Wild Bill, I try every time I see the term assault weapon to educate, but I even saw on Ammoland them calling it an assault weapon. If we can’t even get the pro-gun people to use the correct terms we are doomed!

Gregory Romeu

Yes we all know what AR stands for.

I could use a 50 caliber musket as an assault rifle!

Get your facts straight!

Mike McAllister

Gregory Romeu, you could use a 50 caliber musket to commit an assault, that DOES NOT make it an assault rifle!!!!

Gregory Romeu

Look, nobody is coming for our guns. We won’t play that game. Yes, everybody knows that, “AR” stands for Armalite, that’s common knowledge.

Tell me this. What is the difference between an M40 Sniper rifle and a Remmington 700 “deer rifle”?


Actually, the new york times advocated doing just that, and both mass murderers and war criminals obama and hillary advocate forced australian style confiscation. So called assault weapons bills are only favored by the minority of the public – even with highly biased wording and polling techniques, the majority in america oppose such bills in both ny times and wa post polls in recent months. Hillary and obama would absolutely ban firearms and repeal the 2nd amendment as proposed today by the disgraced Rolling Stone magazine – if they even had close to the votes to do it, which they… Read more »

M16 is a assault rifle not ar15 it was
Never used by army ,it is a political
Term and the Orlando shooter had a
Sig Sauer MCX ,

Gregory Romeu

That’s funny, we have them in the Marine Corps!


Which M16 were you issued in the Marine Corps? The original M16 to the m16a1, to the A2 and now A4 were all either full auto or selective fire with three round bursts starting with the A2. And the m4 and now m4a1 were both select and full auto. So please tell me which M16 you were issued that was semi only!


What is an assault rifle? Since the actual definition has to do with select fire in intermediate calibers, how is a semi auto an “assault weapon?” Where do you draw the line? Is a 22 rifle with a magazine an assault rifle? Is a pump gauge shotgun? Are all magazine fed pistols?

Is it sort of like a “weapon of war” as obama says? Which would involve glock 17/19s, remington 12 gauge shotguns, 308 bolt action rifles, and even the 22 ruger rifle that israeli uses?

Please clarify!

Laura Kuriatnyk

Hey Bernie, Go back to your own Country where they all have guns!!!
No one is touching our Second Amendment Rights and that includes fully Automatic rifles ..You need to be put back
Into your Constitutional Cages where you Belong!!!


Bolshevik Bernie is a typical leftist – thanks for pointing out what a fraud he is.
