On Wednesday, shock-jock Howard Stern went off on the Left’s latest gun control push in the wake of the radical Islamic terrorist attack in Orlando that left at least 49 innocents dead, calling the political move “f**king mind-blowing.”
“I’m so upset about Orlando and what went down, but I can’t believe these people who come out afterwards and their answer to Orlando is to take away guns from the public,” he said. “It’s f**king mind-blowing to me.”
Stern explained that a large portion of Americans are like oblivious “sheep” ready to be preyed upon by armed terrorists, the “wolves.” Our brave military and law enforcement officers, our “sheepdogs,” are scarce and sometimes minutes away when there are only seconds left to fight back. Disarming Americans, argues Stern, would only assist the terrorists and bring more sheep to the slaughter.
“The military — and they don’t mean it in a derogatory way — but they look at the public as sheep,” he explained. “And we are sheep. Most of us sit around all day and we don’t know how to defend ourselves. We basically think everything’s OK.”
But there are “wolves,” he warned, “the bad guys, ISIS, or terrorists, homegrown or otherwise — they’re wolves.”
And the wolves “all have AR-15s, they have glocks, they have every kind of pistol,” he added. Driving home his point, Stern recalled the recent attack in Paris where terrorists were successfully armed and murdered innocents despite having some of the strictest gun laws “on the planet.”
Stern then illustrated his point: “Now what if I went up to the sheep and I said, ‘You wanna have a shot at the wolves? I’m going to give you a pistol. You can actually even the playing field with these wolves whose fangs are out — you can shoot them.’ There’s not a sheepdog for every citizen.”
Continuing, he explained that terrorists will find a way to kill, be it via planes or box-cutters, they will find a way: “The wolves are always planning. They’ll use box-cutters. They’ll use an airplane fly it right into a building. They don’t need AR-15s.”
Stern, who is Jewish, then invoked the Holocaust, which, he mentioned, didn’t happen all that long ago. “It happened within my father’s lifetime,” he stated.
“Can you imagine if the Jews, at least when the Nazis were banging on the doors, if they had couple of pistols and AR-15s?” he asked. “Maybe at least he could have taken a few Nazis out.”
When responding to a caller later during the show, Stern painted a rather vivid picture of the horror facing unarmed Jews during Nazi Germany:
“The German army tells ‘em: ‘Round up all the Jews and uh, tell ya what, for fun, let’s take the women and fill up their uteruses with cement; let’s kill their children; let’s let the men work, starve them to death, let them work for us for awhile, then make soap out of their bones.”
What are the Jews who want to get together and fight these guys going to do? he asked himself aloud. “Throw a rock?!”
The caller rebutted: “But, that’s an extreme case.”
Stern slammed him. “Yes, it’s extreme,” he said, “Except it happened!”
The controversial radio host then pointed out that many of the politicians who are pushing to disarm the public have the luxury of armed security, a right all Americans should and do have per the Second Amendment.
“I don’t like violence — I don’t like any of this stuff — but I consider myself a sheep. Most of your politicians have private security, so they’re OK. Those are sheep that are very well-protected. You, on the other hand, are a sitting duck,” he said.
“I’m not for taking away people’s rights," he said.
