Penn Jillette frustrated debating anti-gun women

During a HOT TALK “debate” segment of The Wendy William’s Show — riddled with fallacies, factual errors and ganging up — Penn Jillette could be seen becoming visibly frustrated with the amount of ad hominem attacks against gun owners (the majority), folks with Asperger’s and a plethora of other boogeymen to blame for Adam Lanza’s horrific massacre in Newtown, Connecticut.

We’re thrilled that even with the multiple times Jillette is seen throwing up his hands at the amazing level of stupidity that host Wendy Williams, Sue Simmons, and Nicole Lapin kept clucking on about, he somehow manages to keep his cool (to a point). We’re not especially thrilled that he missed the opportunity (when he got a word or two in between bok boks) to educate them about the true reason for the second amendment, or the fact that the majority of shooting sprees have taken place in so called “gun free zones“.

Undoubtedly these three bitches will move on to talking about bullying or some other pop culture boogeyman without realizing the irony.

“Penn & Teller: Bullshit!” episode on gun control laws

A worthy flashback to some common sense on gun control, and why it’s against everything libertarians stand for:

Warning: contains explicit language older people tend to frown upon. But, fuck it… you’re an adult that can handle it.

Jillette bests Hannity in debate of superfluous laws

It’s good to see Hannity has the man-stones to acknowledge Jillette’s appeal to reason in a recent interview on Fox:

HANNITY: You’ve never tried marijuana.

JILLETTE: Never.

HANNITY: You never had a drink.

JILLETTE: Never.

HANNITY: You’ve never had a cigarette that you smoked.

JILLETTE: I do fire eating, so I have to light a cigarette –

HANNITY: You never smoked a cigar.

JILLETTE: Never.

HANNITY: You’re the exception to the rule for libertarians. You know that, right?

JILLETTE: I do know that, but I also do know that the most important thing is for the government to allow more freedom than I want for myself. Morality has to be a subset — the most important thing is that people in this country feel like they are living legally. There’s nobody in this country right now that can say with complete confidence they are doing nothing illegal. We have too many laws. What you need to do, is if you are a good person, you should have no fear of the government. It comes back to the Al Capone thing that we busted him on income tax invasion. You don’t want to feel good about that. You don’t want to feel good that the government can bust anybody on anything they want. You want to be able to do good things. Much smaller laws. You know, my son, when he gets to be 12 years old, should be able to understand everything that’s illegal and everything that’s not. There shouldn’t be this huge amount of illegal things you can do. Someone who is a good person should have no fear of the government whatsoever.

HANNITY: All right, I lost this debate. I can’t win this debate. Go waste half your vote.

JILLETTE: I’ll waste my whole vote. That’s what I’m going to do.

Oh wait, he added that qualifier in there… so fuck him.

I’m very much glad that Jillette had the sense to bitch slap some sense into him on the half-vote mockery he was attempting on everyone who would dare to vote for Gary Johnson or anything other than the pre-approved corporate-backed duopoly. It’s smug bootlickers like Hannity who are ultimately giving Americans a bad name by this kind of “blind” deference to power. We the people of all political stripes control the reins of this country, not with half-votes — whatever the shit that meant — but with full angry votes, backed by full angry mobs. I dare Hannity to keep pretending otherwise and ignore history.

Side note: Penn Jillette had a prior libertarian outburst speaking out against Obama’s drug use hypocrisy and is probably most beloved among libertarians for his infamous standoff against a TSA screener’s physical assault. Hammer of Truth reached out to Jillette for further comment on the matter and was rebuffed because of some bad manners (on twitter, no less). Do feel free to let him know what a silly mistake that was, seeing as we’re not his damn enemy.

VIRAL: Penn Jillette slams Obama’s drug history hypocrisy

“Now, he has not left this to states’ rights,” Jillette posited. “As you know, medical marijuana… you can get in California, and the feds are coming in to try to stop this. States’ rights don’t mean jack shit to the Obama administration on anything except gay marriage.”

JILLETTE: “What troubles me about this… I think it’s beyond hypocrisy. I think it’s something to do with class. A lot of people have accused Obama of class warfare, but in the wrong direction. I believe this is Obama chortling with Jimmy Fallon about lower class people. Do we believe, even for a second, that if Obama had been busted for marijuana — under the laws that he condones — would his life have been better? If Obama had been caught with the marijuana that he says he uses, and ‘maybe a little blow’… if he had been busted under his laws, he would have done hard fucking time. And if he had done time in prison, time in federal prison, time for his ‘weed’ and ‘a little blow,’ he would not be President of the United States of America. He would not have gone to his fancy-ass college, he would not have sold books that sold millions and millions of copies and made millions and millions of dollars, he would not have a beautiful, smart wife, he would not have a great job. He would have been in fucking prison, and it’s not a god damn joke. People who smoke marijuana must be set free. It is insane to lock people up.”

One arrest for something he admitted doing (inhaling and snorting) and Obama would have never been president. He’s since become head of the SuperDEA that gets caught with their pants down (literally) when they aren’t stomping all over civil liberties across the Americas.

Penn Jillette knows a funny joke when he sees one.
