What do you think Karl Rove was trying to say?
Republican strategist Karl Rove made an innocent — and wholly accurate — statement on “Fox News Sunday” that has ruffled the feathers of those on the right, the left and gun enthusiasts alike.
Groups that rarely agree on anything are claiming, or at least implying, that he’s calling for a repeal of the Second Amendment in the wake of Wednesday’s tragedy at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C.
For example, the left was so excited it resorted to making up its own words.
AddictingInfo.com reported, “On Sunday, Karl Rove appeared on Fox News with a shocking message — one that will surely cause him to lose what support he has left among the extremist conservative horde of ammosexuals who feel that Second Amendment rights are more important than human lives.”
The opening salvo from a site dedicated to Indiana gun owners was just as shrill. It said, “Meet a domestic enemy of the US Constitution who CLAIMS to be a Republican. And he’s gonna push the Republican Presidential candidate on us?”
The political right, thankfully, was more circumspect, and for the most part only suggested Rove called for repealing the right to bear arms.
