I’m 100% behind the free exercise of our Second Amendment rights.
But don’t expect the NRA to call him for a spokesmodel position anytime soon, but Dr. Jack Kevorkian a/k/a Dr. Death endorsed strong and healthy Second Amendment rights for all Americans at a Florida speech, at the campus of the famous John Kerry/”Don’t Taze Me, Bro'” “oration.”
You know what they say about broken clocks and their incidence rate of telling time correctly. Here’s the first of the assisted suicide champion’s two times, but as you can see, he also functioned like a well-oiled broken clock for most of the rest of his oratory:
Jack Kevorkian was paid $50,000 to speak at the University of Florida on Tuesday, telling students that he did nothing wrong and that people should be allowed to carry Uzis down the streets.
Kevorkian, who says he assisted in at least 130 deaths, said he didn’t cause death, but ended suffering. . . .
The 79-year-old Michigander said he was limited in what he could say about euthanasia because of the terms of his parole after serving eight years in prison for second-degree murder. He was released last year.
But he found plenty of other controversial topics to discuss in the hour-long speech, which earned a standing ovation.
“We have a criminal group in Washington. We have a bunch of cruel dictators,” he said. “Everyone should refuse to vote. That would send the tyrant a message.” . . .
Kevorkian said assisted suicide was a medical procedure — something the law shouldn’t be concerned with it.
“It’s got to be decriminalized and the law has to step out of the picture,” said Kevorkian, wearing his signature blue cardigan.
He also urged students to take advantage to their right to bear arms, enshrined in the Second Amendment to the Constitution.
“You should be able to carry an Uzi down the street if you aren’t threatening someone,” he said. . . .
The university received almost 2,000 e-mails protesting the Kevorkian speech, although most came from out-of-state and were form letters.
Like I said. Broken Clock. Twice. Day. And only one of those times was in this speech. $50K for this kookery. Nice work, if you can get it.
