Taking a page from the hateful books of Michael Ian Black and fellow Canadian Jim Carrey, comedian and actor Dave Foley says you are a “loathsome human” if you purchased a gun after the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre. Believing in the 2nd Amendment? How frenzied!

Rights Shmights! Unless, of course, it is his right to speak freely, no matter how inane and hateful the speech is.

He must be one of those icky bitter clingers, huh, Dave? Like all of these people who were spurred into joining the NRA in order to try to protect their rights, threatened by gun-grabbers. “Loathsome,” all, right? Just like all the Americans who are buying guns to protect themselves. Guess what, Dave? Obama and fellow travelers like you built that.

Bingo.

Worse, according to Foley, rushing out to politicize on the backs of dead children? A-OK.

Repugnant. Dancing on the graves of dead children is totally fine, if one has an agenda to push. Foley then continues his useful idiocy. With emphasis on the idiocy.

What about some other deaths, Mr. Foley?

That means he has no reply, of course. Shhh! He doesn’t value that life. That’s just a “normal day” and all.

Then, he pulled a Piers “Musket” Morgan and retweeted this.

Foley-RT

Muskets!

But, it’s OK. Some of his best friends are guns.

His idiocy doesn’t end … and won’t.

No wonder. Of course he watches propaganda and the “news” outlet that specializes in deceptively edited video.

Remember this, people. The Left, once again, believes that dancing on the graves of dead children is totally fine. All that matters is the agenda itself. Life isn’t valued. And the people with whom they disagree? They are treated with sneering contempt.

Loathsome, heal thyself.

      I was going to add his name to my “Do not support” list, but then I thought “Why?” What are the odds that he will turn up in any of the very few things I actually watch anymore??

  • kch50428

    Dave who?

  • http://apostrophejones.com/ Gloves Donahue, Jr.

    Sure. When you’re a huge star like this guy, with a big entourage, mansions in gated communties, your own jets and limos and private security force, you can scoff at the “small people” who have to protect themselves.

      he is all that, less the mansions, jets, and fame.

          On top of this/that, he is a Canadian, so not really educated/qualified/knowledgeable/a citizen of the US, etc. Spare us your fake outrage, eh?

          • Catchance

            Yup. Too bad he didn’t pay attention to the Supreme Court decision in 2008, in District of Columbia vs Heller, where the Court ruled that the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to possess a firearm, unconnected to service in a militia.

        • Conservativesniper

          He’s Canadian. And a third rate ‘comedian’. Since he’s Canadian his opinion on American rights is irrelevant. Besides, the only comedian worth a damn from SCTV was John Candy.

  • peteee363

    nobody is purchasing guns because of the sandy hook shooting, but the knee jerk reactions by idiots like you foley!

  • b_truit

    So politics aside, a man goes on a shooting rampage.. Naturally people want to protect themselves but cannot count on gov to protect them all. So the “loathsome” people are people who want to protect themselves and others if this were to happen again…yet liberals scream we don’t want this to happen again but try to disarm the very people who would stop it.
    Thank you all! I will be running for office for the people by the people!
    Now I just need my fellow patriot tug boat to endorse me!

  • Kenneth James Abbott

  • rivers

    Canadians like to think they are smarter than Americans because Americans can’t find Saskatchewan on a map. Like most Canadians, Dave doesn’t even have the most basic understanding of the second amendment or the importance or significance of the constitution. It sickens me to see him take advantage of the opportunities the United States has provided and yet not be bothered to understand the fundamentals of this country. He should go back to Toronto where he belongs.

  • RightThinking1

    If you are a 2nd rate Hollywood sitcom star, your opinion is probably loathsome.

  • Lin Blackett

    Damn Canadian loud mouth. He owes 500K in child support no wonder he skipped out.

    • TocksNedlog
      • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

        Great find!! He really cares about kids. Well, dead ones that he can use politically, not his own.

        • TocksNedlog

          While I agree that Dave’s comments about legitimate gun owners are what was “loathsome” here, I’m a bit more sympathetic on the ‘deadbeat dad’ thing.

          He was ordered to pay $10,700 a month in support for his two sons. When he was the star of the sitcom “NewsRadio” he could afford it; his career has since declined, but he is still expected to come up with the full amount. [BTW, his sons are now 21 & 17, and seem to be getting by okay.]

          • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

            When he comes after my guns he loses any sympathy in any other arena. But that’s just me.

          • Garth Haycock

            It’s not the court’s fault nor his sons’ fault that he’s a washed up has been who can’t afford the support he was ordered to pay.

          • TocksNedlog

            They also probably would have survived on $5,000 a month.

          • tdpwells

            Except he apparently went into arrears during his stint on NewsRadio, which means he could afford it and still didn’t pay at that time.

          • TocksNedlog

            Look, I don’t claim to know all the details of Dave’s case, but here is what I do know:
            According to the USDA (your tax dollars at work) for a household with an income over $102,870 per year it costs $4085 a month to support two kids. By any reasonable measure, $10,700 a month is excessive.

      From what I can find, he was the creator of the HBO series “The Kids in the Hall”, which was a comedy troupe based out of Canada. Also had some minor roles in a number of movies.

      Never watched any of his works, so it’s doubtful I missed out on anything.

      • jeffunde

        And the show “The Kids on the Hall” was not funny. If you like Monty Python type humor, this show tried to do that, but just didn’t work.

    Basic misdirection. People have been buying guns in response to the threat of having their rights restricted, NOT in response to the shooting deaths of children.
    Meanwhile, IN RESPONSE TO THE SHOOTING DEATHS OF CHILDREN, Dave Foley attacks the morals of the 99% of legal gun owners that will NEVER use their legally owned gun to commit a crime.

  • Calcat36

    “Please don’t judge all gun-owners by these loud-mouthed, insensitive, paranoid bullies that think reasonable gun regs = tyranny.” Who defines REASONABLE?

    Ask Foley how the panic registration of firearms after a school shooting in Montreal worked out. They just stopped registering the weapons as a waste of time and millions of dollars. It had no effect on crime in fact it went up especially home invasions.I know i worked in Canada for 10 years.

    U know WHAT?! I’m sick of seeing this ignorance. No, I don’t judge ppl who went out & bought guns after the shooting in Newtown. That’s their rights!!! And as far as them dancing on the graves of dead children, THAT’S JUST PLAIN STUPID! Another thing! There were 6 or 7 adults who lost their lives that day too! All I’ve heard is children. Those growups were somebody’s children too. If it really even happened. If it wasn’t a setup to take guns out of the hands of innocent ppl.

In 2011, there were reportedly 496 Americans killed by a hammers and other blunt objects. ‘…a total of 1,694 people were killed by knives or sharp cutting instruments.
