David Frum has a Charles Johnson style nervous breakdown

Charles Johnson will forever live in Blogging infamy for having a nervous breakdown. Along with Andrew Sullivan, he turned on everything he once stood for and joined the Left. Then he became obsessed with mocking and smearing the Right. David Frum now joins the nervous breakdown club. He goes on a Twitter rant mocking the idea of armed guards in schools.

David Frum’s rant ranks right alongside Charles Johnson’s 32 Rand Paul posts in 5 days back in 2010 as a clear case of a mental breakdown.

    @ eaglesoars:

    When flying, passengers are normally sedentary and immobilized. This is a problem because it is the contraction of muscles in the legs, normally caused by motion and movement, that allows blood to circulate back to the heart. When the body is immobilized, blood pools in the legs, and this increases the risk of clotting. Additionally, when seated for a lengthy amount of time, the knees remain at a right angle, resulting in a “kink” in the veins of the legs, preventing proper circulation.
    The dryness of the recirculated air on planes can leave its passengers dehydrated. This leads to the blood to become concentrated and more prone to clotting without the proper amount of hydrating fluids.

    President Barack Obama used the funeral for Hawaii senator Daniel Inouye to talk about himself. In the short 1,600 word speech, Obama used the word “my” 21 times, “me” 12 times, and “I” 30 times.

    Israeli schools were being targeted as soft targets. So they trained some teachers, not designated to others, to be armed. The attacks stopped.

    We could do the same with schools. What makes schools a target is the gun free zone status.

    He does know that armed guards are common in inner-city schools, right? Because of gun violence.


  12. 12 | December 22, 2012 12:45 pm

    Pardon me, but what did Frum have to “break down” from? He’s been a despicable twat since day 1.

    Gosh, that’s kinda peotic and all, ain’t it?

    Oh, and he should excoriate the official who first proposed armed guards in schools. That would be one William Jefferson Clinton, then President of the United States.


  13. 13 | December 22, 2012 12:46 pm

    Er, “poetic”, that is…

    The NRA came out with a proposal to post armed police officers at schools to prevent or at least minimize the next school shooting. The left promptly called the idea nuts.

    Turns out, it wasn’t a new idea. President Bill Clinton proposed the same idea in April 2000. He implemented it, too, only to see Barack Obama cut the funding for it.

    So, if you’re keeping score, the NRA agrees with a 12-year old Bill Clinton position on school security. The left just called a former Democrat president “crazy.”

    no, it’s not twitter which is the problem, it’s the idiot Frum.

    just like guns aren’t the problems, but the murderous rampaging person.

    the other day i had to say to a gun banner, “well, would we be any happier if they had all been slashed to death?”. shut ‘em up for a minute.

    @ 14 Mike C.:
    Some of our schools here to have police officers as guards. They give them a different name but have training.

    It’s a great idea especially for grade shcools. The nation has a responsibity to keep these kids safe. They can either ban all guns everywhere. (And kids will still not be completely safe) Or they can put two well trained armed guards at every elementary and junior high school.

    If funding is an issue just stop giving money to Egypt or the TSA or the Dept of Education.

    @ Mike C.:

    The NRA came out with a proposal to post armed police officers at schools to prevent or at least minimize the next school shooting. The left promptly called the idea nuts.

    One minute point: LaPierre didn’t actually call for police at all schools. He called for trained, armed security officers.

    One of the reasons the left dismissed the idea was cost (as if that’s ever stopped them from wanting anything else). It wouldn’t necessarily be anywhere near as expensive to put armed security in schools as it would to put actual sworn law enforcement officers in there.

    Another proposal I’ve seen involved using either retired cops or ones who are on disability. You don’t necessarily need someone who’s able to run, jump and climb fences to guard a school.

    I’m sure I’m not the only one to notice that the only time D’Rats worry about the cost of something is when it’s something they don’t want to do… :cool:


  36. 36 | December 22, 2012 2:32 pm

    Yup -- gotta fund the free Obama phones first, you know. It’s a matter of priorities, and we can always make more kids, right?

    Actually, this (like many other things) is something that should be up to local folk. But first you have to eliminate federal laws that prohibit it.

    I’m not sure where you got your information but this is a direct quote from the transcription of Wayne LaPierre’s speech on Friday:
    “I call on Congress today to act immediately to appropriate whatever is necessary to put armed police officers in every single school in this nation,” LaPierre said.

    Here is the complete transcript.


  38. 38 | December 22, 2012 3:07 pm

    @ huckfunn:

    With all due respect to Wayne (who I think has been doing a very good job), the last damned thing on earth we need is more federal involvemnt in state and local issues. Just clear the decks of federal obstructions and let local government handle these problems. Or not.

    I agree with what you’re saying about Fed involvement. There are always strings attached to Fed money. I wish he had modified his statement such as “armed security needs to be provided by state and local funds”. But I know that is unpractical in today’s economy.

    Frum has been doing almost exactly what Charles Johnson did; he’s re-branding because he sees no future for himself on the ideological wavelength he previously occupied. Armed guards for schools is not an unreasonable idea IMHO, and I’m a commie by the standards of this blog.

    I would think the progs would jump a the chance of placing federal guards in schools. They would be unionized and most likely obama voters.
