to what Obama wishes, even when they know it's crap.
It won't end well.
Really, NPR? Nobody there knows enough history to catch this?
But neither the hapless NPR reporter nor the several anti-gun
residents of Gonzales interviewed for the story know the actual origin
of the phrase, or why its application to the ongoing national debate
about gun control and the Second Amendment is entirely appropriate—and
They are blissfully unaware that “Come and
take it” is a quote from King Leonidas I of Sparta. At the Battle of
Thermopylae in 480 BC, during the second Persian invasion of Greece,
Leonidas replied to Xerxes’s demand that the Greeks surrender their
arms, “molon labe”—come and take them.
And so are the editors. Or they know and don't care.
When you keep doing crap like this, it's no wonder people don't trust the cops or the courts.
