HuffPo scare-quotes ‘freedom’ on splash page with photos of gun violence victims

Hey, yeah, in case you missed the faces of gun violence victims being appropriated by the gun-grabbing grave-dancers at The Huffington Post, check it out. Members of the HuffPo team are awfully proud of how truly awful they are.

The headline above the images of the dead reads “The Price of ‘Freedom.'”

Scare-quoting freedom to push gun control — could the desperate Left get any more despicable? (Don’t answer that.)

The splash page leads to an article titled “U.S. Gun Deaths Since Sandy Hook Top 1,280.”

Well, guns are the number one cause of everything bad that’s ever happened, right?

Shh. That’s not supposed to be part of the much-hyped “national conversation” on gun violence.

Shameful, indeed. Are you wearing your shocked face?

  • CatHerder

    Grave-dancing, the new liberal pastime.

    • nc

      Winner! Except it’s not new, they’ve been doing it for years.

  • TocksNedlog

    Ergo, the SACRIFICE of freedom is the price of ‘safety’.

  • TocksNedlog

    Turn in your guns and let the government protect you!

    • V the K

      It worked out so well for the American Indians.

      • BeyondPolls

        And the Soviet citizens.

        • peteee363

          and the jews in germany!

          • BeyondPolls

            Yup.

          • PAttyconservatopia

            Dont forget the Chinese, Cubans, Vietnamese, Laotians, Eastern Europeans, and the undesirables in Hitlers Germany Gays, LEFTISTS, artists, Gypsies, disabled, intellectuals, and ANYONE ELSE HE DIDN’T LIKE.

          • BeyondPolls

            Yeah, them too.

          • BeyondPolls

            Yeah, them too.

        • ML

          And Cambodia.

          • BeyondPolls

            And China and North Korea.

  • carla5731

    Freedom does have a price. Those with courage accept the risk, and the rest hide behind the government.

  • vanbratch

    Over half of those 1,280 deaths are in Rham’s backyard

  • BeyondPolls

    Somebody needs to make a mural of the 55 million victims of unborn discrimination with the caption “The Price of ‘Freedom'”

  • operanerd1986

    As someone who lives in the western suburbs of Chicago, I have to ask, how many of these gun deaths were in Chicago?

  • peteee363

    how many more citizens were protected by thier gun, or someone else’s?

  • Steve_J

    Someone should post pictures of the victims from Germany (1932-1945) or Singapore (1937), Cambodia(1975-1979) and label it “the price of no freedom”.

      Good idea!!!

    • Noctis Wolf

      As well as Soviet Russia, Communist China, and North Korea.

  • rachooo

    Anyone else find it strange they used mugshots? I would think they could have made their point without them…

    I’d like to know how many of these deaths were caused by illegal guns, which of course would not be representative of the legal freedom they so abhor.

    • wwbdinct

      Where do you see that they are all mugshots?

      • rachooo

        I never said all of them. Some of them appear to be mugshots.

          I see 6 that I would bet money on being taken with a camera by the PoPo.

          • rachooo

            Also, most of the apparent mugshots are of black guys.

            Can you imagine if a right-leaning blog did that?

    Great sayings from American history: Freedom, it’s just not worth it.

    On the other hand, you have to give these kids at PuffHo credit. It takes a lot of courage to publicly admit believing the hideous things they believe.

  • Blake Waymire

    A free society is the one that demands its government take absolute care of it forever. Haven’t any of you listened to the president lately? You all saw how much he helped Julia!

  • Joe W.

    Should call her title “The Example of Idiocy:”……..

    Link just for you airheadonya. I’ll call it the price of “gun control”.

  • FreedomFighter

    HPs communist moderators are hijacking every comment under that article. Very few conservative comments get through.

    • Noctis Wolf

      They can hijack it all they want to. That won’t bring back the victims of the Soviet and Chinese Communist governments. The people who were disarmed when all guns were banned in their respective countries. Where only the government could own guns and no one else could.

      So let HuffPo delete comments all they want do. Doing so won’t change what happened; Soviets and Chinese Communists who disarmed their people and then turned violent agaisnt them. HuffPo deleting comments off of a website won’t bring the victims of Communism back:

  • http://twitter.com/Thor_Odinson ThorOdinson

    I wonder if they’ll next be putting up a picture titled ‘The Price of “Safety”‘ with the faces of rape and murder victims in cities with heavy gun control?

  • MrApple

    The Left never lets a good tragedy go to waste. Truly shameful.

    This is what happens when a tyrannical government bans all firearms. This is the price of Communism. The Soviets passed gun control laws. The same exact laws which Arianna is supporting here. The same exact laws which Feinsten wants.

    These two young women were saved by the Right to Bear Arms. Which this coach used to protect his basketball players:

    http://www.wxyz.com/dpp/news/man-shot-near-martin-luther-king-jr-high-school-in-detroit

    “Police sources tell 7 Action News that a women’s basketball coach from Martin Luther King, Jr. Senior High School shot two men who attacked him as he was walking two basketball players to their cars in the school parking lot.
    Police sources say the coach was walking the two girls to their cars when two men allegedly approached and one pulled out a gun and grabbed him by his chain necklace. The coach then pulled out his gun and shot both of them, according to sources.
    The man who shot the attackers was 70 years old, according to police.

    I’m curious…where are the photos of the 330,000 aborted fetuses that were conducted by Planned Parenthood during 2012?

    Death by gun….unacceptable (as it should be)…

    …death by medical utensils? ah…..not so much.

  • bo1921

    Just think of the tens of millions who have died that were not free, trying to be free – In the 20th century alone.

  • Jim Denney

    Dear Arianna,

    Right (no pun intended) back at you.

    I would like to see a splash of the people who were NOT victims of crime because they were armed. Anyone?

    I would put together a montage for those protected by guns and those that were killed by their government by seizing their unalienable rights to self protection, but having to put 100 Million+ on it would be too difficult.

    Will Huffpo post pictures of the 50 million dead babies since 1973?

    NOPE!

    They won’t even admit there is a such thing.
