That’s the difference between religious-like emotionalism from the Left, and calm, cool and collected factual discussion from conservatives…
WATCH: Shapiro Fiercely SHREDS Kimmel’s Gun Control Rant
On Tuesday, Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro absolutely tore apart Jimmy Kimmel’s emotion-laden monologue on Monday night in which a tearful Kimmel ripped the GOP for not enacting harsher gun control laws as well as those who responded to the Las Vegas massacre by praying rather than pressing for harsher gun control laws. Kimmel’s monologue got wide media play from the gun control-obsessed MSM; Shapiro simplly rolled the tape of Kimmel and paused intermittently to fiercely decimate Kimmel’s rant. In the end, Shapiro returned to one of his key perspectives; that judgments based on feelings rather than facts and reason are a recipe for disaster.
With all that said, Jimmy Kimmel finally goes off last night. Jimmy Kimmel has become sort of the all-heart representative of all leftist causes. A couple of weeks ago we broke down in detail his lecture on health care reform, which was similarly based not on facts, just based on emotions. Last night he did a long shtick about gun control that was entirely based on emotion, and it was just really nasty. It was really nasty. I don’t think it was nasty because he doesn’t care; he cares; it’s really nasty because he’s suggesting you and I don’t care. It doesn’t matter that you lost sleep last night and I lost sleep last night because of what happened. It doesn’t matter that we’re all heartbroken over what happened; we don’t agree with Jimmy Kimmel’s evidence-less suggestions about gun control; that means that we don’t care; we’re bad people. You want to know why the country’s not unified? It’s because of stuff like this.
It’s not because we disagree on policy; we’ve been disagreeing about policy forever. It’s because there are certain people in the American public discourse who feel it necessary to impute bad motives to people who disagree, and that’s what Kimmel’s doing here.
So here’s Jimmy Kimmel; we’re going to go through his entire lecture; here he starts off ripping into Americans who disagree.
