NBC’s Todd Mocks ‘Thoughts & Prayers’, Dismisses 2nd Amendment

Political News

On Sunday’s Meet the Press, anchor Chuck Todd used the opening segment of his show to ridicule the calls for thoughts and prayers for the nineteen young children and two teachers who were shot and killed in the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde Texas. 

Instead of joining decent Americans in praying for those who have been killed as well as their families, Todd decided to mock them, and accuse the Republican Party of providing hollow jesters and not wanting to prevent more mass shootings in the future. 

“It’s become our uniquely American ritual of words after each episode of this uniquely American serial tragedy,” Todd said smugly. “Thoughts and prayers, nothing we can do. No law would have stopped this. The real problem is mental illness. If only the victims had been armed. More thoughts and prayers.”

“How do we allow an 18-year-old, in this case, Salvador Ramos, to buy assault rifles and accumulate more than 1600 rounds of ammunition, all legally, mind you,” Todd whined before trying to tie this tragedy in with the Democrat Party’s other failed agenda items: “whether it’s guns, or climate change, or protecting our democracy. We no longer have a politics that can meet these crucial moments that we face.”

Todd continued his kvetching that “no member of Congress has been voted out of office for being too pro-gun. Not one!” Adding that “until the majorities who claim they want tougher background checks and to get assault weapons off the street, vote like they mean it. We can expect to hear more calls for thoughts and prayers and that’s it.”

The undercover Democrat Party activist then got in a parting shot at the Republican Party and the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution: “this current version of the Republican Party is being held hostage by a vocal minority obsessed with an absolute right that does not exist.” 

It’s interesting that Todd thinks that having an abortion is an absolute right, despite the fact that the word “abortion” appears nowhere in the document. Yet, somehow the right to keep and bear arms isn’t an “absolute right.”

CHUCK TODD: Sadly, though, it’s become our uniquely American ritual of words after each episode of this uniquely American serial tragedy. Thoughts and prayers, nothing we can do. No law would have stopped this. The real problem is mental illness. If only the victims had been armed. More thoughts and prayers. How do we allow an 18-year-old, in this case, Salvador Ramos, to buy assault rifles and accumulate more than 1600 rounds of ammunition, all legally, mind you. Whether it’s guns, or climate change, or protecting our democracy. We no longer have a politics that can meet these crucial moments that we face. 

Will the deaths of 19 children and two teachers in Uvalde, Texas, change things? Unlikely. The murder of first graders at Sandy Hook didn’t. No member of Congress has been voted out of office for being too pro-gun. Not one! So until the majorities who claim they want tougher background checks and to get assault weapons off the street, vote like they mean it. We can expect to hear more calls for thoughts and prayers and that’s it. Because this current version of the Republican Party is being held hostage by a vocal minority obsessed with an absolute right that does not exist.
