My bet is that 100% of Americans want to stop mass shootings and protect our schools. There are just dissenting opinions on how to go about accomplishing the goal. I’ve chosen to keep my opinions about gun control and the Second Amendment to myself, but I will say this. Regardless of on which side of the argument you find yourself, if you’re going to march in protest, carry signs and make sweeping declarations, it’s a good idea to know what your talking about. Even just a little bit. If you don’t, it weakens your cause and it makes you seem… forgive me… stupid. Say for example, if you’re demanding the banning of assault weapons, it might be kind of a good idea to actually know what an assault weapon is. WATCH.

During his audition for ABC’s reboot of American Idol, 19 year-old Benjamin Glaze happened to mention he liked his job as a cashier because it provided him the opportunity to meet cute girls. When Luke Bryan asked if he’d kissed a girl and liked it – a play on Katy Perry’s hit single – Glazer confessed, “I have never been in a relationship and I can’t kiss a girl without being in a relationship.” Kind of sweet and refreshing in this day and age, right? Enter Katy Perry. WATCH.

Sarah Silverman hosts a weekly Hulu show titled, I Love America with Sarah Silverman. During her opening monologue on December 7, she described having an intense visceral reaction to watching an ex-boyfriend raise an American flag in his yard. It happened many years ago, but evidently she’s still thinking about it because she recalled feeling weird, scared and shaken at this seemingly simple act of patriotism. Having no idea why, she called her sister, Susie, who “knows shit” because she is a rabbi in Israel. Rabbi Susie explained, “Dude, nationalism is innately terrifying for Jews. Think about it. Flags. Marching. Blind allegiance. These things tend to ring a bell for us.”
Where Are All the Feminists?
In case you missed it, the false prophets of feminism have their panties in a collective wad. Again.
In summary, Jourdan Rodrigue, a reporter for the Charlotte Observer, asked Cam Newton a very specific question about his receiver’s ability to run routes, revealing an arresting knowledge of football. Cam smiled and said it was funny to hear a female talking about routes because, let’s be honest, women generally do not talk with such specificity about football. Yeah. Yeah, I know Rodrigue is a sports journalist and it’s her job, but Cam Newton’s comment, punctuated by a smile, was neither offensive nor sexist and it certainly was not disparaging. Dare I suggest Jourdan Rodrigue, et al. over-reacted?
