USA – -(Ammoland.com)- “Anthony Weiner has checked into a SEX ADDICTION treatment center after his sexting relationship with a 15-year-old girl triggered FBI investigation of him, wife Huma Abedin and Hillary Clinton,” the Daily Mail declares in an exclusive report. “In one particularly lewd message, he told the teen: ‘I would bust that [use your imagination] so hard and so often that you would leak and limp for a week.’”
Cries of outrage from the Hillary camp, busy screaming over something Donald Trump imprudently said (about adults) to another guy 11 years ago, were predictable in frequency and volume. Click here to listen.
Still, it does make fair to ask why someone who feels compelled to go into rehab — essentially an admission that he can’t (or won’t) control himself — was so bent on controlling you and me when he was in power.
The forces of citizen disarmament had no bigger supporter than Weiner. He wanted to destroy the gun industry by allowing manufacturers to be sued for crimes committed with their lawful products. He wanted to keep a prior restraint delay on exercising the right to keep and bear arms in place. He wanted to end private sales.
Weiner gives us insight into mind of someone who knows he is untrustworthy. There’s more than a bit of projection going on. That makes it fair to ask just who the hell he thinks he is telling Americans who do not share his despicable moral failings that he does not trust them with freedom to make moral choices. Obviously, since he can’t trust himself, the thought of others not sharing his defects must be too much to handle; after all, if others are capable of self control, then the problem must be his. Better to blame them, and better yet, blame their guns!
It’s fair to ask if Weiner is really going into rehab because he recognizes his failings and is committed to turning his life around. If he really is an “addict,” the first thing to keep in mind is you can’t trust a thing he says. Or is it that he knows the jig is up and law enforcement is closing in around him?
It’s fair to ask if he’s making a show of demonstrating he’s sick, not criminal (as if one can’t be both), on the advice of lawyers in order to get the most lenient outcome that he can.
