The Constitution’s Second Amendment was created to bolster slavery and capture land from Native Americans, award winning actor Danny Glover told a group of students at a Texas A&M sponsored event on Thursday.

Actor Danny Glover told students at Texas A&M University the intent of the Second Amendment was to protect slavery.

“I don’t know if you know the genesis of the right to bear arms,” he said. “The Second Amendment comes from the right to protect themselves from slave revolts, and from uprisings by Native Americans.”

“A revolt from people who were stolen from their land or revolt from people whose land was stolen from, that’s what the genesis of the second amendment is,” he continued…

…The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 65% of American Adults think the purpose of the Second Amendment is to make sure that people are able to protect themselves from tyranny….

Bonus fun fact:

…Following the firebombing of his house in 1956, Dr. Martin Luther King, who was, among other things, a Christian minister, applied for a gun permit, but the Alabama authorities found him unsuitable. A decade later, he won a Nobel Peace Prize…

    Next, he began to give students medical advice, like where to find prescription drugs online, and how to treat hair loss with raw turnips.

    Kids, don’t listen to actors. Not only are they idiots, they’re professional liars.

    Why is that the way so many actors act, when they aren’t being paid to act otherwise, is just flat out stupidly?

    As Lincoln once pointed out, at the time the Constitution was written, a squirrel could travel from the East coast to the Mississippi river and never touch the ground! It was all forest, had no roads and was full of buffalo, bears, mountain lions and hostile indians.

    Moreover, there were no sucha thing as chain foodstores in America. Which meant west of the 13 Colonies, most of the meat came from hunting wild animals with flintlock rifles and slickbore shotguns. Nor were there any PayLess shoe stores, so that meant that when shoes wore out traveling west, moccasins from wild animal hides had to be fashioned and worn.

    I seriously doubt ANY man or family crossed the Alleghany mountains, westward without a single firearm in the late 1700s.

    Get a fucking clue Glover!

    Danny Glover needs to have his Mandingo ass taken outside and beaten with sticks. That’s all there is to it. Seen him in a lot of movies lately? Ever wonder why?

    A lot of other people are getting tired of his shit.

    Thank God Danny Glover only counts as 2/3 of a real person. Otherwise he’d be a real asshat.
