On Thursday, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a New York anti-gun law that restricted concealed carry in the state. Democrats naturally responded with anger, but one of the most triggered leftist voices was ex-MSNBC anchor Keith Olbermann, who took his rage to the next level. He demanded that states simply ignore the Court’s ruling.

Mediaite reports:


In a 6 – 3 decision the court struck down a New York state law on concealed carry, prompting strong reactions from both Gov. Kathy Hochul (D-NY) and President Joe Biden, as well as other officials.

But where the governor vowed to take her state’s fight into legal and legislative directions, Olbermann advised a more anarchic approach: just don’t listen.

“It has become necessary to dissolve the Supreme Court of the United States,” the former lots of things Olbermann said. “The first step is for a state the ‘court’ has now forced guns upon, to ignore this ruling.”

The added “Why and how do think you can enforce your rulings?” was a nice touch, totally ignoring the structure of government and the Constitution which both grant the court the authority to make such rulings and the executive branch of the federal government the power to enforce them.

However, Twitter users responded to his argument with humor:

What’s Olbermann’s platform now? He was fired from ESPN twice, from Al Gore’s Current TV, and MSNBC. The guy is toxic.
