“Freedom is slavery” is a key slogan in the oligarchical collectivist dystopia described in 1984. Patently absurd? Not to a liberal. A Hollyweird leftist makes the case:
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.”
Seeing is believing:
There is no more essential liberty than the freedom to defend your life and property. But freedom is slavery, to a moonbat.
Educrats won’t say how much the university paid to have Glover deliver this pearl of wisdom, but considering that he is an award-winning member of the Tinseltown pantheon, it was surely more than the $25,000 his fellow America-hating communist kooks Angela Davis and Harry Belafonte have been paid for speeches at the same event. No wonder college tuition is skyrocketing, even as the quality of education collapses.
