Delusional, Liar, or Incompetent? You decide…

When I saw last week’s headline on Fox News that read:  Breyer: Founding Fathers Would Have Allowed Restrictions on Guns, I thought, surely there is some mistake?  Surely a Supreme Court justice would not spout such pablum so easily shown to be false?  Alas and forsooth, the first paragraph read:

If you look at the values and the historical record, you will see that the Founding Fathers never intended guns to go unregulated, Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer contended Sunday.

I don’t know from where he gets his information, but it is most certainly not from the Founding Fathers themselves!  Lest you think I jest, before I could generate the necessary post, Gunny over at THE ANTILIBERAL ZONE has produced this post that shows just some of the documentation Justice Breyer has ignored, willfully or otherwise.  (Language warning:  Gunny is a retired Marine gunnery sergeant [at least I think that was his rank…he can correct me in the comments] whose language is, um, how to say this graciously, frequently scatological in nature and crude in content.  This is not to say it is inaccurate.  His documentation and research into issues is usually spot on, detailed, and thorough.  Fortunately, his more objectionable language is usually saved for commentary paragraphs rather than the actual discussion of his findings.)  Based on this data, Justice Breyer is, at least on this point, either delusional, a liar, or an incompetent, any of which should disqualify him from sitting on the bench of the highest court in the land.  Here is a flowchart showing how one may arrive at these conclusions:

 

Flow of Delusion

This flowchart may, of course, be applied to anyone making claims readily shown to be separated from reality by simple reference to the facts and data.  When will liberals learn that in this internet age, their statements are documented and readily available for verification years later, and the wealth of information now available online makes fact checking an easy task (no, Piker, I’m not saying everything on the internet is true…discretion and discernment is still necessary)?

Disagree with the Founding Fathers all you want.  But please, support your disagreement with truth, facts, evidence, and data, not assertions to the contrary that cannot be supported by any stretch of the imagination…unless you live in an alternate universe.

UPDATE:  See this post on Publius’ Forum for another collection of data showing how Justice Breyer has to fall into one of the above three categories.

    Delusional, Liar, or Incompetent? I vote, “Agenda Driven”. Nuff said. (great post my friend)

    Well, if you follow the flowchart, “Agenda Driven” is either Delusional, or Liar, depending on whether or not they “know” the actual facts of the situation.

    Indeed.
