A liberal comic is apologizing for a Twitter post that implied the Founding Fathers would have been horrified by the AR-15 rifle, but only after it offended liberals for an utterly insane reason.

“’Holy f-cking sh-t Jesus Christ what the f-ck?’ – a Founding Father finding out what an AR-15 is and does,” tweeted Bess Kalb, an Emmy Award-nominated writer for “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”


Aside from believing the Founding Fathers never imagined advances in gun technology despite several being inventors, it’s also part of a liberal belief the AR-15 is a super-powered machine gun that can destroy entire buildings.

But Kalb quickly deleted the tweet and apologized profusely, after online liberals began assaulting her for mentioning the Founding Fathers without slandering them.

 

“They who stole land and owned human beings. Citing their supposed outrage at a AR-15 while ignoring the linage of sheer violence of white supremacist patriarchy is part of the f-cking problem,” shrieked leftist reporter Aura Bogado.

“I agree with you,” Kalb pleaded.

“I appreciate you responding. The initial tweet appears to sanitize the legacy of how we got here….,” Bogado shot back. 

The attacks for being insufficiently leftist sent Kalb scrambling to erase her thoughts and offer a performative apology.

“I apologize,” Kalb tweeted. “The joke took aim at the leap from an amendment about muskets to justify 18-year-olds buying weapons of war at Walmart.”

An AR-15 is not a “weapon of war” and is not available at Walmart.

Kalb continued to grovel before her online lynch mob.

“The brutality of the founder’s legacy cannot be overstated,” said Kalb, who is protected from arrests for her public criticism of political figures by the Founding Fathers.

Kalb then deleted the tweet and continued to apologize for her wrongthink.

“I will delete the initial tweet so as not to minimize or sanitize what the founding fathers stood for, perpetrated and would have absolutely condoned today,” Kalb pleaded.

Despite her insistence the Constitution is a racist document that should be repealed, Kalb owes her entire career to it.  

She wrote Hillary Clinton’s 2016 Al Smith dinner speech poking fun at elected officials, is a lead joke writer for Kimmel and gained fame for her tweets attacking then-President Donald Trump– all which is protected speech under the First Amendment.

Pure insanity from the left. They’re admitting they want to destroy the Constitution because it was written by a bunch of White Supremacists. How convenient of them to create a scenario which is total fallacy.

I love it when libs talk of “white supremacy.” You should note that while the Democrats frequently equate the Republicans with “white supremacy,” slavery, the KKK, segregation and Jim Crow were all Democrat policies.

As it’s been pointed out numerous times, an AR is not a Weapon of War, as the Civilian Legal version, has never been adopted by any Military Force in the world. So calling it such is a Lie. It is not more powerful than the Vietnam Era M-16, that is also a Lie. It is the most popular Sporting Rifle in the US. It’s considerably less powerful, than the M1 Garands the US Government itself sells to civilians through the Civilian Marksmanship Program (unlike the 9mm, the 30-06 cartridge is capable with the right bullet of blowing your lung out, another Joe Biden Lie).
