Interesting video of “gun safety activist” (and political writer, commentator, and operative) Cliff Schecter expressing his true feelings of disdain for gun owners, who are stupid and like to sit around stroking their guns with no concern for all of the children dying from guns every day. From the podcast Majority Report with Sam Seder:
Of course, it is not news that there is a huge level of disdain among liberal cultural elites like Schecter and his buddy/host Seder for those involved in gun culture. In fact, a big part of this conversation is Schecter and Seder putting down Dan Baum, who takes liberals to task in his book Gun Guys for being dismissive of gun culture. (The video actually made me feel bad for Baum because the “liberal gun guy” really can’t win. I’ve criticized him in the past from the perspective of gun culture, and these two liberals and others really skewer him from the perspective of anti-gun culture.)
What I found notable about this Majority Report video, though, is that Schecter’s PR firm, Libertas LLC, included among its clients Mayors Against Illegal Guns. I’m not sure whether he consults for Everytown for Gun Safety now, but if he does, I hope his advice to them is to keep their hatred for guns, gun owners, and gun culture hidden better than his.
